The Clavinova CVP-709 digital piano nurtures your inner musician. Run your fingers over the grand piano touch of Yamaha's Natural Wood X keyboard with synthetic ivory keytops, where the Linear Graded Hammer action dedicates a unique weight for each key. Your Clavinova is first and foremost a piano, with Yamaha's Real Grand Expression technology delivering the sumptuous sounds of two legendary concert grands: Yamaha's own flagship CFX and the inimitable Bosendorfer Imperial, plus hundreds of ultra-realistic instrument voices. Also onboard is an irresistible suite of interactive music entertainment, education, and performance features. It all adds up to the most advanced Clavinova ever - the Yamaha CVP-709.
Two world-class concert grands in one digital piano
Yamaha's CVP Clavinova has two world-class concert grands onboard: Yamaha's own flagship CFX, selected and played by the winner of the 2010 International Chopin Piano Competition, and the inimitable Bosendorfer Imperial - the eight-octave beast from one of the world's oldest and most esteemed piano makers. Characterized by distinctive traits, including power, versatility, subtlety, and mellowness, both of these superb pianos are featured (by name) in the Clavinova. Tuned to perfection by experienced technicians and with each key recorded individually, Clavinova truly captures the unique tonal character of each of these peerless instruments.
Your dream piano studio
The enhanced Piano Room onboard the Yamaha CVP-709 Clavinova not only includes the world-class Yamaha CFX and Bosendorfer Imperial grand pianos; you also get a full instrument palette consisting of hundreds of ultra-realistic voices. Enter Session Mode, and you can invite three virtual musicians into the room to jam as you practice and perform in one of 40 available musical styles. These session cats automatically follow your harmonies and your volume expression using Clavinova's new Dynamics Control. You can activate and deactivate each one depending on your accompaniment requirements. In the Piano Room, you can even record your sessions with a single button press!
More than just a piano
One of the key features of a CVP Clavinova is the multitude of different Styles that you can control in real time just by playing chords. Accompaniment Styles enhance your performances with ensembles of virtual musicians in a variety of musical genres. From small jazz groupings to full symphony orchestra, what you play determines what chords or harmony they play, along with their dynamics. Yamaha developed these Styles with professional session musicians from around the world to give you authentic, studio-grade backing for your performances. You can also use Styles to arrange your compositions in real time and easily embellish them with Intros, Endings, and Fill-Ins.
Play a hit song, one light at a time
CVP Clavinovas are like a patient music teacher: if you're not playing the right notes, they simply wait until you do. It's Yamaha's unique Guide feature that makes this possible, with a Follow Lights library that teaches you popular melodies in an intuitive way only possible with a CVP Clavinova. Follow the lights, one note at a time, and fully arranged orchestrations and arpeggios materialize to embellish your playing. With a CVP Clavinova, you don't play along with a recording; the recording plays along with you.
Plug in and start singing
Connect a microphone to your Yamaha CVP-709 Clavinova and sing along with your keyboard performance or Karaoke song files from YamahaMusicSoft.com. With all its input jacks conveniently located on the front of the instrument, the CVP Clavinova even lets you plug in a portable music device like your MP3 player or smartphone and enjoy listening through the Clavinova's high-resolution stereo speaker system. Clavinovas are really popular at Sweetwater - and for good reason. The latest generation incorporates not only everything Yamaha has learned in over three decades of Clavinova development; these fine digital pianos embody the collective wisdom of Yamaha's century-plus of fine acoustic piano making.
