Play And Sing! It's Easy With Guide Lamps
The Clavinova features an extensive learning support system including guide lamps over the keyboard. Right from day one, the kids – or even granddad – can learn by playing real music instead of practice pieces, making it fun and enjoyable to study. There's even a built-in recorder so you can record your performance and see how you're doing, and save it to floppy disk to build up a continuing progress report. One more way to put the Clavinova at the heart of your family's musical fun is to use it for karaoke. Lyrics from karaoke floppy disks are shown in the LCD display.

Discover how good you can be
Demo and Help – Pressing a button is all it takes to find out what a CVP Clavinova has to offer. Once you read and hear the Voice and Style demos, you'll want to sit down and start playing yourself. And don't worry about complex operations – there's also a handy Help function offering detailed explanations when required. Song Recording – Whenever you're ready to record, the CVP Clavinovas are ready too. With 16 digital tracks to let you build up complicated, multipart arrangements and take full advantage of the hundreds of instrument voices available. Of course, you can save your performances to floppy disk for instant playback at any time. The only limit is your imagination. Better still, the CVP-201 also offers step recording. Registration Memory – This allows you to store complete instrument setups for instant recall whenever you need them. All it takes is the touch of a button to completely change the entire sound of an instrument, a handy feature for live performances. You can store your setups in the internal flash ROM or on a floppy disk. XG Format – XG is Yamaha's format that brings you the compatibility and control of GM (General MIDI), plus a whole lot more. For example, the GM specification is limited to 128 voices, while XG lets you select voices in different banks, giving you access to hundreds of voices. In addition, XG lets you control a vast range of other parameters including harmonic content of voices, reverb and other effects from a sequencer or another XG keyboard. It's the ultimate in flexibility and control. Metronome – You'll be surprised at the effect a voice has on how hard your child practices! Keyboard Percussion – Twelve drum kits you play from the keyboard give the range of percussion sounds you want for your music. Choose from standard, electronic, jazz brush and so many more. Digital Effects – The onboard digital effects allow you to change instrument voices in ways from the mild to the wild. Built-in reverb lets you add the ambience of different-size rooms from a small recital hall through a large opera house, an enormous cathedral and even an outdoor stadium. Direct Access – Another helpful feature is the Direct Access button. Simply hold this button down while you press reverb, for example, to directly access the reverb's editable parameters. Three Guide Methods – Lets you pick the method just right for your playing ability. "Easy Play" allows you to practice the rhythm before learning the notes. "Next Note" shows you where to play on the keyboard. If there's a difficult passage that needs concentrated practice, use "Sound Repeat" to play that one phrase over and over.
The large LCD gives you access to yet one more amazing Yamaha feature. With "Guide Control" a miniature keyboard and piano roll are shown in the display, and as your playback software progresses the notes in the piano roll scroll to show you when to play, while guide lamps over the keyboard show you which note to play.
Auto accompaniment is yet another area where Yamaha leads the industry. Just one finger is all you need to create a complete rhythm, bass and chord accompaniment in Single Finger mode. Fingered mode lets you play the entire chord manually, and Multi Finger mode allows you to use Single Finger, Fingered 1 or Fingered 2 modes to generate the auto accompaniment. There is also a Full Keyboard mode that responds to whatever you play across the entire keyboard to make the function more piano-like.
Built-in accompaniment styles cover almost any musical genre you can think of. The CVP-201 offers 125. There are also hundreds more available on Yamaha Style Disks. Each style has four variations plus intros, endings, fills and fade-in/fade-out for a natural feel to the accompaniment. Custom Style – You can create you own custom rhythm and accompaniment styles and save them internally to 12 locations or on floppy disk. Start from scratch or modify one of the existing styles, the only limit is your imagination. Pianist Style – Enjoy sophisticated auto accompaniments featuring acoustic piano. Offering all the fingering ease of Yamaha's other auto accompaniment functions, Pianist allows everybody, and even absolute beginners to give accomplished solo piano recitals.
One Touch Settings
With One Touch Setting, when you choose an accompaniment style, the right-hand voice is also automatically selected for you, so you're ready to play at just the touch of a button.
The handy registration memory allows you to store 20 complete instrument setups for instant recall. This means you can change the entire sound of the instrument at the touch of a button – it's a great feature for live performances. What's more, the CVP-201 lets you name your setups, so you can store them by song name.
Music Database offers you a selection of musical styles with preprogrammed voices and effects setups available at the touch of a button. The CVP-201 has 463. So you always enjoy instruments and effects carefully chosen by professional musicians to suit your selected style.
Connect your PC and add extra power
Handy one-cord connection to your Windows® or Macintosh® computer adds a whole new dimension of power to the Clavinova. For example, you can use commercially available sequencing software, such as Yamaha's XGworks, to create truly complex and advanced performances. Or you can use notation software to create sheet music for the compositions you create. There's almost no limit to what you can do.
88-key Graded Hammer Effect Keyboard
Yamaha sets the pace for realism with the GH (Graded Hammer effect) keyboard. You'll enjoy all the subtle response that makes the Clavinova so expressive. Because the GH keyboard is even more like an acoustic piano's – the keys are heavier in the bass registers than they are in the treble. So you get a satisfying weighty feel in the bass, ideal for adding real bottom to the way you play, and the treble notes are lighter, to help your fingers dance over fast melody notes.
Stereo Sampling AWM
With Yamaha's AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) tone generation, you'll believe you can actually hear piano hammers and strings. It starts with CD-quality samples of the actual instrument – and for even greater realism the piano voices are sampled in stereo. AMW digitally filters them according to your touch on the keyboard. The volume and tonality change with your attack.
