Natural wood (NW) keyboard

The special Natural Wood keyboard uses real-wood white keys, to reproduce as closely as possible the experience of playing an actual acoustic grand piano. The authentic touch and feel of the keys goes far beyond existing electronic keyboards, realistically recreating the hardness of the keys, the balance between the weight of the key and hammer, and the characteristic weight gradations of the keys - heavy in the low end, light in the high register - to make you feel as if you're playing a real grand piano. Moreover, 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.

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.

Large colour LCD display

A large LCD display provides attractive graphics and helpful messages for quick access and error-free operation. It provides comprehensive and easy-to-understand control of its operation. The display indicates chords, scores, lyrics, voice and style information, and more.

MegaVoice technology

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.

Live!, Cool! and Sweet! voices

A huge palette of acoustic and electronically amplified instrument sounds. A blend of long, stereo and multi-layered samples is used to fully capture the natural presence, resonance, expression and vibrato of the real instrument.

Organ Flutes

This special function not only gives you a full set of rich and luscious organ sounds, it also lets you create your own original organ voices, just as on a traditional organ, by increasing and decreasing the flute footages, and adding percussive sounds.

Auto Accompaniment

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.

16-track song recorder

Use the built-in song recorder with up to 16 tracks to create complex, multi-part arrangements one instrument at a time. After recording, save to the internal memory, which retains data even when the power is switched off, on a storage device, or to a PC.

Split / Dual

Split mode lets you select different voices for the left- hand and right- hand parts. Dual mode lets you combine any two voices together, such as piano and strings, to create lush timbres. The volume, fine tuning, and transposition can be set individually for each voice within a dual layer or split.

Karaoke function

If the selected song has lyric data, you can have the lyrics shown in the display by playing back the song. Sing the song while viewing the lyrics on the display. Since the instrument is equipped with the MIC/LINE IN jack, you can sing a song using microphone.

Guide lamps

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.

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.
