Welcome to the digital party
Enjoy all the subtle keyboard response that makes the Clavinova so expressive. And now there's another big plus, because the 88-key GH (Graded Hammer Effect) 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. When it comes to instrument realism, one name stands above the rest: Yamaha's AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) tone generation. It all starts with CD-quality samples of the actual instrument – and the piano voices are sampled in stereo. AWM then digitally filters them according to your touch on the keyboard. Not only does volume change with your attack, the tonality changes too, in just the same way as the original instrument. You have an amazing selection of 224 panel voices to choose from.
Switch on some accompaniment
The CVP700's auto accompaniment lets everybody sound like a pro. Choose from Single Finger mode, Fingered mode and Multi-Finger mode according to your skill level. There's also a full Keyboard mode that responds to whatever you play across the entire keyboard to make the function more piano-like. 147 built-in accompaniment styles cover almost any musical genre you can think of, and hundreds more are available on Yamaha Style Disks. You can even create your own custom rhythm and accompaniment styles and save them to 12 internal locations, or on floppy disk. There's also Pianist style featuring acoustic piano and offering all the fingering ease of Yamaha's other auto accompaniment functions.
Plug in to some sing-along fun
Connect a CVP700 to your TV, pop a karaoke floppy disk into the drive and you've got your own home karaoke center. Song lyrics are displayed on-screen, so the entire family can get together for real sing-along entertainment. The CVP700 also offers Vocal Harmony. By digitally pitch shifting your voice, the instrument adds up to two harmony parts to whatever you sing. What's more, you can even get some other instruments out (maybe dad's old guitar!) and play along with the songs for a whole new style of karaoke experience.
If you're going to study, there's no place like home
The CVP700 features truly extensive learning support systems including guide lamps over the keyboard and Guide Control, a system that shows a miniature keyboard and piano roll in the large LCD. You have a choice of three guide methods: Easy Play, Next Note and Sound Repeat. So from day one, the students – or even grandad – can learn by playing real music instead of practice pieces, making it fun and enjoyable to study. There's even a built-in 16-track recorder so you can record your performances and see how you're doing, and save them to floppy disk to build up a continuing progress report.
Build your own library of music software
Yamaha offers an enormous library of music software for study, karaoke, play-along or just playback enjoyment. Pick up a song file data disk and enjoy minus-one playback that lets you step into the spotlight and solo in front of a full backing orchestra. Or load a voice or style data disk, and add more voices or auto accompaniment styles. No matter what kind of music you like or at what level you play, there's sure to be just the title for you. From classical to rock, pop to ethnic, the list is almost endless. Ask your Yamaha dealer to show you just what's available in the extensive Yamaha library.
XG opens up even more music
XG is Yamaha's revolutionary extension of the General MIDI format. Naturally, it contains the entire GM standard, so you have complete compatibility with commercially available GM software. XG includes a huge set of additional voices, a minimum of three effects processors with many effects types, MIDI control of analog inputs allowing processing of for example, microphone inputs to create vocal harmonies, extensive control of other parameters for real-time sound shaping.
