January 14, 2009 by Andy
Yamaha’s latest Clavinova, the CVP409GP, will be on show at this year’s Winter NAMM exhibition.
Claiming it to be the world’s most innovative and technologically advanced digital piano line, the CVP409GP offers a luxurious mini-grand piano style cabinet option.
The ebony polished cabinet, synthetic ivory keytops and natural wood keyboard mean both look and feel are more authentic, while Yamaha’s Graded Hammer 3 technology accurately reproduces the genuine acoustic piano playing feel.
Yamaha has used its Instrumental Active Field Control (iAFC) technology which uses built-in microphones and speakers to reproduce complex sonic textures, rich resonance and an unparalleled sound.
Performances, including vocals, can be saved digitally to a USB device and then turned into iTunes or Windows Media Player files and audio CDs.
Other features include a built-in Ethernet port for connecting the Clavinova directly to the Internet or home network, auto accompaniment, style and sampled instrument voices for authentic backing parts, and vocal harmony effects. It also has an extra large full colour LCD screen which can be used to view musical scores downloaded from the Internet.
