Pure CF Sampling for superb tonality
Yamaha technicians selected a CFIIIS full concert grand with the highest sound quality, and tuned it to the finest possible condition. They then used our unique Pure CF Sampling technique to sample all of its sounds, in order to create the CLP/CVP sound. As a result, you enjoy the same natural tonal response as a top-quality piano.
TFT LCD 7.5 inch Display
High-resolution, 640 x 480 dots, color TFT (Thin Film Transistor) LCD screen. Big and bright, the 7.5 inch display shows scores, lyrics, all important settings and parameters with crystal clear clarity, even under extreme lighting conditions.
Natural Wood (NW) Keyboard with Synthetic Ivory Keytops
This type of keyboard features the feel of real ivory. The special Natural Wood keyboard also uses real-wood white keys. The key surface is soft and slightly porous, giving the keys added grip and a natural friction that lets you play easily. The authentic touch and feel of the keys goes far beyond existing electronic keyboards, it makes you feel as if you're playing a real grand piano. This specially crafted keyboard lets you use techniques only possible on grand pianos, such as playing the same note successively and having the sounds blend smoothly even without use of the damper pedal, or playing the same key quickly and having perfect articulation without the sound cutting off unnaturally.
Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) Dynamic Stereo Sampling
The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) is a sampling system which creates sound close to that of an acoustic instrument by using digital technology to record the instrument sound and applying high-quality digital filter technology to the recorded audio samples. The waveform of the sound created by playing the key of an acoustic piano differs depending on the playing strength from pianissimo to fortissimo. The AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling can produce such dynamic nuances by recording samples of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expressive quality and potential becomes.
Super Articulation 2
Mainly for wind instrument Voices, a special Yamaha technology called AEM has been used, which features detailed samples of special expressive techniques used on those specific instruments - to bend or slide into notes, to "join" different notes together, or to add expressive nuances at the end of a note, etc.
Articulation Element Modeling (AEM)
Articulation Element Modeling (AEM) is the technology for simulating this characteristic of instruments. During performance, the most appropriate sound samples are selected in sequence in real time, from huge quantities of sampled data. They are smoothly joined and sounded - as would naturally occur on an actual acoustic instrument.
Instrumental Active Field Control (iAFC)
This sophisticated technology outputs sound picked up by built-in microphones together with the Clavinova's internal sound through rear speakers, making automatic adjustments to create a richer sound that best matches the acoustic characteristics of the room you're playing in. It also uses signal processing to reproduce an authentic damper effect. When the damper pedal is pressed, it delivers discretely sampled overtones, harmonics and resonance to recreate the warm and spacious sound.
It features multiple samples across the keyboard with sophisticated velocity switching - for incredibly authentic instrument sounds. It contains not only the basic samples of the instrument but also the performance techniques used with it. On a guitar for instance, players will hear open and mute string sounds, dead notes, hammering effects, slide effects, harmonics and a wide range of strum and body noises. In technical terms, MegaVoice duplicates an instrument's behavior. In sonic terms, this gives the keyboard stunningly realistic sounds.
USB Audio Recorder & MP3 Playback
You can record your performance as audio data to a USB storage device. Connect a microphone or guitar to the instrument and enjoy recording a guitar and keyboard performance together, or record your singing along with song playback. Also it features playback of audio files in the "MP3 (.mp)" format commonly used by personal computers and portable music players.
The key guide lamps indicate the notes you should play, when you should play them, and how long you should hold them down. You can also practice at your own pace - since the accompaniment waits for you to play the notes correctly. Here, mute the right- or heft-hand part and try practicing the part using the guide lamps.
The auto accompaniment features let you produce automatic accompaniment playback simply by playing "chords" with your left hand. This lets you automatically recreate the sound of a full band or orchestra - even if you're playing by yourself. The auto accompaniment sound is made up of the rhythm patterns of the styles. The styles of the instrument cover a wide range of different musical genres including pop, jazz, and many others. Using these accompaniment styles lets everybody, even beginners, give accomplished solo performances.
When you want to play in a certain genre of music but don't know which settings to choose, what can you do? Music Finder has the answer. It offers an extensive range of music styles with pre-programmed voices and effects setups. Search for suitable styles. It instantly call up the best-suited voices, tempo and accompaniment style to match the song name or music style you wish to play. Simply call up a song title and start playing.
USB TO DEVICE Terminal
Insert a USB flash memory in the USB TO DEVICE terminal on the instrument. It would let you save or load the registered settings and user songs created on the instrument, as well as read data from the connected device.
USB TO HOST Terminal
Dive in and take advantage of the wide world of computer music software. Connections and setup are exceptionally easy, and you can play back your computer recorded parts with different instrument sounds - all from a single instrument.

Joachim Wolf presents the CVP 500 Series
Ideas incorporated in the Clavinova
Interviews with members of the Clavinova development team, discussing their commitment to Clavinova excellence and various episodes that occurred during the development of the CVP-500 Series.
[DEVELOPERS' INTERVIEWS] Ideas incorporated in the Clavinova
Making it easier for people to enjoy playing with an accompaniment.
Product Development Department, Pro Audio & Digital Musical Instrument Division
— How may one enjoy a "Style", which is a distinctive function of the CVP Series?
Style is a function that automatically provides accompaniment by a variety of musical instruments according to the chord played by the left hand. Our top model, the CVP-509, is equipped with 442 accompaniment Styles such as rock, pop and jazz. The player can change the Style to enjoy a variety of ensembles in a single song. In addition to one person enjoying this function while playing alone, another way to use it is for a child to play a melody while their mother or teacher adds an accompaniment by playing a chord in the left hand area. There is another slightly more creative way of using it. Styles may contain up to eight instrument parts and each part can be independently turned on or off. If, for example, the player’s guitarist friend is visiting, the player can enjoy a session with the friend playing the guitar by turning off only the guitar part of an accompaniment Style. Or by turning off all parts other than the bass, the player can create a melody according to the bass line. We’ve done our best to allow each player to enjoy “Styles” in many versatile and unique ways.
— What originally motivated you to add Style to the CVP Series?
The Style function was offered by the earliest CVP models, and was developed to let an individual player easily enjoy an ensemble performance. Players can not only play the piano skillfully following the score, they can also enjoy playing with drums, guitar, bass and other instruments. By using Style, accompaniment by a variety of instruments is added according to the chord progression, letting players feel as if they are playing with their own backup band. I think that this function, exclusive to the CVP, gives each player a deeper enjoyment of music.
— Have any aspects of Style been upgraded in the CVP-500 Series?
The Style data provided in the CVP-500 Series can be more elaborately crafted than the former CVP-400 models, contributing to more realistic accompaniment. Take the guitar, for example. The voicings and playing methods of guitars and pianos are fundamentally different. There are cases where chords that can easily be played on the keyboard of a Clavinova cannot be played with guitar fingering. With the Style data in the CVP-500 Series, no matter what kind of chord is played, it is replaced with realistic guitar voicings, achieving a natural guitar performance without it sounding like a keyboard version of a guitar. The CVP-509 can add effects to each instrument making up the accompaniment, such as distortion to the guitar and rotary speakers to the organ. This lets players enjoy accompaniments that take greater advantage of the distinctive features of each instrument. Furthermore, a new Style, Free Play Style, never offered before, is provided on the CVP-505 and 509. This is a special Style without a rhythm part. It allows for more expression without the restrictions of tempo.
— Please tell us about Music Finder and Music Finder+, which are functions related to Style.
With the Music Finder function, when a player selects the piece they want to play, it automatically sets a combination of accompaniment Style, voice and effect suited to the piece, which is called a Record. It includes a Search function, which can be used to search for the name of a piece, and also for a Style name or even genre. This function is convenient because when the player wants to play a certain piece, it eliminates the process of selecting one of hundreds of accompaniment Styles, setting the voice, and adding effects. Players can perform a Style immediately after they have decided to play a piece. Music Finder+ is a service that lets players directly access the internet from their Clavinova. For example, it downloads Records. This means that players can add new combinations of accompaniment Styles, voices and effects to their own Clavinova. There are more than 4,000 of these Records, and all can be used free of charge. Players can also download Collections, which are groups of Records of various pieces by various artists. They can also download a Performance Guide that lets them hear samples of each Style performance. If players use this data, they can, in addition to the score and chord progression, also confirm the melody to practice a Style performance. More than 1,000 are available at a price of $1.99 per piece. Of course, players can listen to them before purchasing them. We hope that people will use Music Finder and Music Finder+ to make it easier to use and enjoy Style performances.
— Do you have any other comments?
Our Style data is in effect, a synergy of the skills of many craftsmen. It has been refined by our voice and effects creators, our software, MIDI and Style programmers, and the people who check all of these complex processes. Therefore, all of the Style data and recommended accompaniment Styles are creations important to us. We want Clavinova players to have fun performing with as many Styles as possible so they may fully enjoy playing their CVP model for many years to come.

Sound choices that lets you fully express your emotions.
Product Development Department, Pro Audio & Digital Musical Instrument Division
— The top Clavinova model, the CVP-509, provides 1,291 different voices. Why so many?
So that players can get the most enjoyment from Style, the automatic accompaniment function available only with the CVP Series. For example, assume someone plays a pops number with one Style. In this case, guitar, bass, electric piano, drum kit, synth pad and percussion voices for the accompaniment are necessary in addition to the melody voice. No player continuously plays one song in a single genre. We imagined how players will most likely play a song, and will use it with many voices suitable when played with a Style accompaniment. Therefore, just for guitars, we provide many kinds of guitar voices. We also do this for other instruments such as piano and strings. This is why is the CVP-509 is equipped with so many voices that people are amazed when they see the specifications. So while enjoying a Style performance, players unconsciously and skillfully use a rich variety of voices.
— What kinds of voices are Super Articulation and Super Articulation 2?
Super Articulation, offered on the CVP-505 and 509, is a voice that allows the expression of articulation. In other words, richly expressive sounds of musical instruments. In the case of a guitar for example, the scratching sound of the strings. For saxophone or trumpet, the Clavinova keyboard can express the performance styles of actual instruments, such as legato without taking a breath or a smooth pitch bend. The timing or playing ease to reproduce the distinctive playing techniques of these instruments are smoothly integrated, so the player can perform these with ease. Voices that require a year of practice to play are meaningless (laughs). The CVP-509’s Super Articulation 2 has even more musical instrument-like natural expressiveness. It divides a single sound into the start-up of the sound the instant a key is pressed, the sound that is extended when the key is held, and the sound the instant the key is released, and instantaneously combines these according to the performance. This means that the expression of legato and staccato, which are vital for wind instrument performances, becomes very natural. When performance methods such as vibrato or glissando are added, there is no end, but I think this ensures that high levels of reality and musicality can be felt, even when playing only do re mi fa so la ti do.
— Please tell us about your dedication to creating the sound of the Organ Flutes and their distinctive playing method.
My focus in sound creation is harmonizing noises. An organ is an analog instrument, so when it is played, subtle noises are mixed in. But this is also a strong point of organs. The degree of retention of these noises was decided after considering the balance with other instruments usable for Style performance, through an exchange of views with organ experts. And it is now possible to simulate the organ sound harmonization method on the display. The CVP-509 is equipped with 20 kinds of Organ Flutes such as Gospel and Jazz, but it is possible to harmonize the sounds from these voices by raising or lowering the flute footage bar or by changing the switches. Because it’s possible to operate it while playing, it’s fun to search for the preferred sound.
— What voices do you recommend? And is there a trick to choosing voices?
The voice I most highly recommend is, as you might expect, the Super Articulation 2 voice for saxophones and so on. Its major attraction is that it permits realistic performance of other instruments with the Clavinova keyboard. After that, the voice that I personally like is piano. I also like the sounds of the flute and drum kit. As to how to select a voice, I think it is naturally decided depending on the song, but it may be fun to try and quickly listen to the intros of the Styles that are provided. This is because you can hear almost all the internally stored voices, and for each voice, not only its degree of completeness as a single voice, but also how it is finished so that it can be played easily by performing a Style that uses multiple voices. By listening to the Style data you may discover a piece you want to play, or if you are a composer, you may receive an inspiration for a melody.
— Do you have any other comments?
I have considered the question of why people try to make music. I think it is definitely because people enjoy imagining. For example, images or stories related to the five senses or to certain emotions. Musical instruments give us the ability to express these things. You can let people hear what you imagine, transmitting it to them as sound. And when a piece that a person has composed in order to transmit his or her own imaginings is performed, the person’s thoughts can be sensed. Because it is musical instruments that can artfully express such imaginings, we create sounds and have provided the Clavinova with a rich selection of voices.
[ Interview took place in March 2010. ]
Clavinova, which means "new keyboard instrument" in Latin, is introduced as a genuine electronic piano that anyone can enjoy with ease.
The first generation Clavinova, a Yamaha electronic piano created by striving for the sound and touch of a grand piano, was introduced.
The first Clavinova was created in 1983 to allow people to more conveniently enjoy the pleasure of playing a piano. From the first stages of development, Yamaha exercised its ingenuity to reproduce the sound and touch of a grand piano by developing a proprietary FM (Frequency Modulation) Sound Source, new keyboard mechanisms and other innovations. The YP-40 featured not only piano sound, but also the tone colors of 16 instruments including harpsichord, clavichord and guitar. It also provided the Stereo Symphonic Effect, allowing it to offer the power and feeling of depth of a performance in a concert hall or music club.
The first generation of the CVP Series, it combined a piano with performance features in order to expand the enjoyment of making music.
The CVP-7 was equipped with the piano Auto Bass Chord (ABC) function, the archetype of the highly regarded automatic accompaniment functions of today’s CVP Series. At the time, it was a revolutionary function that allowed a player to add an accompaniment simply by holding down chords with the left hand. It also had a ROM Music function that let players call up songs that they liked and play them like an orchestra or ensemble, expanding the fun of playing music. The Guide function, which uses guide lamps to indicate the next key to be struck, also made its debut in this model.
Thanks to masterful use of the most advanced sampling technology available at that time, it faithfully reproduced the sound of a grand piano.
This model marked the first use of the Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) sampling method, which used data obtained by digitally recording the sound of actual musical instruments and processing them with proprietary technologies. This new sound source technology permitted the faithful reproduction of rich textures and beautiful lingering tones, beginning with the delicate sound startup at the moment the key of a grand piano is struck until the sound naturally attenuates.
The wide range of Clavinova models, featuring refined sound, touch and functions, become popular not only for children’s music lessons, but as pianos that adults can enjoy playing.
In addition to upgrading the sampling method and key mechanisms, this model improved the presence of the sound and the feeling of touch on the keys.
Its sound source was the AWM Stereo Sampling method based on stereo recording. Creating sound based on data recorded from the left and from the right, it achieved the wide, deep, elegant and realistic tones of a grand piano. The CLP-760 brought further improvements to the AE (Action Effect) keyboard that had first appeared in 1986, which applied the principle of the hammer action of an acoustic piano. As a result, its touch was even closer to that of a grand piano.
A Clavinova equipped with diverse functions that nevertheless made operation even easier to become accustomed to.
The CVP-79A offered 192 different voices (including GM sounds), exceeding the basic assumptions regarding the capabilities of digital pianos. It also came with 100 accompaniment Styles, greatly expanding its breadth of performance expressiveness, and provided an even easier to use Guide function, an LCD display that helped players to make skillful use of its many functions, and an on-board Help function. Great care was taken not only with its functionality, but with its ease of operation.
With a new keyboard and technology, the CLP-811 achieved the sound and touch of a grand piano.
The feel of grand piano keys when they are struck differs slightly between the bass keys and the treble keys. By introducing the GH (Graded Hammer) keyboard, the CLP-811 was able to reproduce this subtle difference. It also featured AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling, which employs multi-sampling of the grand piano sound as it changes according to the force with which the keys are struck. This technology is also used by current Clavinova models. With enhanced sound and touch, the expressive force of the Clavinova advanced to a new level.
This model offered 613 voices and could simultaneously produce a maximum of 128 notes. It also featured a larger display.
The CVP-98 was equipped with a large 320 by 240 dot LCD able to display voice, accompaniment Style and song names in a single convenient location. Since all of the important functions could be seen at a glance, the ease with which the instrument could be operated was significantly improved. It was also compatible with the XG format, a sound source standard advocated by Yamaha, and offered a richer choice of sounds, wider interchangeability and future expandability. It made truly dynamic play of music data possible.
Introduced the mini-grand piano cabinet to the CLP Series, further enhancing Clavinova sound and elegance.
As the first model in the CLP Series with a mini-grand piano cabinet, the CLP-555 gave Clavinova fans the authentic sound and touch of a grand piano, as well as a beautifully elegant shape. It also featured a craftsman-built cabinet with deluxe black lacquer finish. Along with the features and convenience of a digital piano, it brought the sound and elegance of the concert hall into owners' homes.
Brought Clavinova fans even closer to the experience of playing a grand piano.
The CVP-600 built upon the success of the CLP-555 by also using a mini-grand piano cabinet. It gave players the genuine sound, touch and look of a grand piano, with a vast array of features that only a digital piano can offer. Proud owners appreciated the gleaming beauty of a traditional grand combined with the versatility of a leading-edge digital piano.
Clavinova expands the possibilities of piano enjoyment by constantly adopting the most advanced technologies. This evolution can be seen in the current models, and will continue well into the future.
With new sampling techniques to produce more piano-like sounds, this was the first model to offer a color LCD and Premium Voices.
By combining sound sources such as Key-Off Sampling and String Resonance, which record changes in grand piano sound with the movement of the keys, the CVP-209 achieved the delicate change of sounds and sympathetic string resonances at the moment when a finger leaves the key. It also featured 870 sounds, including Premium Voices, which realistically reproduce the sounds of a variety of instruments. In addition, it was the first Clavinova to have a large color LCD with color icons and letters to clearly show notes, song names and accompaniment Styles.
Introduced the GH3 keyboard and iAFC acoustic technology, for reproducing grand piano tonality and playing characteristics.
The CLP-170 introduced the GH3 (Graded Hammer 3) keyboard, which was based on the GH keyboard but had three sensors, including Yamaha’s proprietary Damper Sensor. This enabled the player to use advanced grand piano techniques such as playing the same note repeatedly with perfect articulation. It was the first Clavinova with iAFC (instrumental Active Field Control), an advanced acoustic technology for reproducing sounds with breadth and depth, just like a stage performance, as well as the sympathetic string resonances that occur when the damper pedal is pressed.
The world’s first electronic piano capable of being directly linked to the Internet.
The CVP-309 opened up new ways to enjoy an electronic piano by introducing Internet Direct Connection, for connecting the Clavinova directly to the Internet. This feature lets you select the piece you want to play from among the more than 4,000 pieces that are available, download the registration (sound, style, and effect settings) best suited to the piece, then listen to a sample performance or show the melody, chords or lyrics on the Clavinova display to enjoy playing or listening to the piece. This was also the first model to use the solid wood NW (Natural Wood) keyboard.
Clavinova entered a new phase of its history with the introduction of a slim model.
As the first Clavinova with a slim body, the CLP-F01 marked a new page in the history of the digital piano. It was not only a pleasure to play and look at, it was also easier to position in a room. With this emphasis on design, it was popular not only with individuals, but found widespread use in public facilities such as hotel lobbies.
The appearance and expressive power of a grand piano. Ready to bring you unlimited enjoyment: the CGP Series.
In a cabinet finished so it appears to be a grand piano, you have all the diverse functions of the CVP Series. When you close the key cover, it encloses not only the keyboard, but the operating panel as well, providing the appearance of an acoustic piano. It also offers an actual piano soundboard along with state-of-the-art vibro-acoustic technology. Adding Yamaha’s highly effective iAFC technology, which delivers sound with the depth of a grand piano, the CGP-1000 achieves extremely realistic and richly resonant sound.
Piano sound that faithful reproduces the original acoustic source. Connects directly to the internet. A model that comprehensively integrates the 25 years since the birth of Clavinova.
One of Yamaha’s finest CFIIIS full concert grand pianos was selected and tuned to the optimum condition. Pure CF Sampling uses all the sounds sampled from this single piano for the piano sound. The CLP-380 therefore produces sound with playing response highly faithful to the sound source. In addition, it is the first model in the CLP Series equipped with Internet Direct Connection, which lets you directly access a special website to select from a huge musical library. The CLP-380 was designed to combine the finest sound, touch and functions developed during the 25 years since the birth of the Clavinova.
