Introducing the Yamaha Clavinova CSP170 digital piano

The Yamaha Clavinova CSP range is a completely new concept in learning to play the piano, combining top quality piano playability with an intuitive iOS app. The piano sounds come from Yamaha's fabulous range of acoustic instruments, featuring Yamaha's unique Virtual Resonance Modelling system (VRM) for unprecedented realism. The CSP170 features the NWX key action with wooden naturals, synthetic ebony and ivory keytops and escapement resulting in a natural and responsive playing experience very much like that of a real acoustic grand piano.

'Smart Pianist' acts as the user interface, with hundreds of instrument voices available to choose from and a huge range of intelligent rhythm styles to accompany your performances. In addition, the app can analyse tracks in your iTunes library and produce a basic music score on the screen for you to play along. Lights at the back of the keys will show you which notes to play now and which ones to play next, and it will even wait for you! Having analysed the chord structure of the song you can then re-arrange the song using one of the 470 built in rhythm accompaniment styles which using the built in 16 track sequencer you can then record and even add your own vocals to.

A remarkable instrument and highly recommended, and on display in our Haslemere showroom.

Concert grand piano sound at your fingertips

The CSP Series features piano Voices created with samples from Yamaha’s flagship CFX concert grand piano and the world renowned Bösendorfer concert grand. These superb instruments reproduce the way sound echoes differently in different venues such as halls, cathedrals, and smaller rooms, and even recreate the subtle changes in tone that occur when the lid of a grand piano is opened or closed. With keys that rebound quickly for rapid playback of repeated notes, the CSP Series offers a feel strikingly similar to that of an actual grand piano.

Dynamic backing band accompaniments

Enjoy accompaniment from a dynamic backing band, even when you’re playing by yourself. The accompaniment provides a wide variety of patterns across a range of genres to match your performance. You can also connect a microphone and sing along with harmony functions that allow you to automatically create a chorus backup for your performances, even when you’re singing alone.

Play your favourite songs right away with the “Audio To Score” function

Smart Pianist features an "Audio To Score" function that automatically creates a piano accompaniment score from songs on your smart device, allowing you to enjoy playing along with your favorite tunes.

A huge pallet of top quality instrument voices

The CSP-170 features hundreds of high-quality instrument Voices including "Natural!", "Sweet!" and "Cool!" Voices sampled specially to compliment the instrument types. Yamaha's Super Articulation Voices (SA) add genuine performance attributes of the real musical instruments as though they were being naturally performed by a virtuoso of that instrument instead of from the keys of a piano keyboard. Examples include "fret noise" or "body knocks" from a guitar or the "inhales", "exhales" and glissandos from wind instruments. By simply varying your touch and playing techniques or using the pedals, SA voices will add significant authenticity to your sound.

NWX Natural Wood keyboard

Just as with grand pianos, the material used for Natural Wood X keyboards is cut from wood that has been carefully dried specifically for use in making musical instruments. Only the best wood from the finest part of each tree is selected, resulting in a keyboard that is more resistant to buckling and warping than common laminated wood keyboards. With three sensors the piano accurately senses and interprets the movements of each key, for a response and expressivity that feels very similar to that of a grand piano.

Virtual Resonance Modelling

Clavinova pianos elaborately reproduce the rich sympathetic resonance of a grand through a groundbreaking technology called Virtual Resonance Modelling (VRM). VRM creates a richly varied sound by simulating the complex sympathetic tones created when the vibrations of the strings are propagated to the soundboard and other strings, corresponding to the timing and intensity of key playing and pedalling. Yamaha Clavinova pianos even replicate the sounds the dampers make when they are raised off the strings, in addition to the resonance of the duplex scaling, strings, soundboard, and case.
