Natural Piano Key Touch
To let you enjoy incredibly realistic touch, the CVP-900 features the "Natural Keyboard" with the same kind of wooden keys used for acoustic pianos. As with Yamaha's earlier GH (Graded Hammer effect) keyboard, key weight is graded from heavier in the lower registers to lighter in the higher. To further assure authentic touch, the grading is in 6 steps in the "Natural Keyboard" as opposed to 4 in the GH keyboard.
For even more realism it uses a new hammer action that lets you feel the hammers and cushions as you play. And there are two sensors – one under each key and one under each hammer. The key sensor detects when the damper is on or off, while the hammer sensor detects velocity to provide the same responsiveness as a grand piano's keyboard when playing fast, delicate passages. All this plus the warmth and texture of natural wood keys in an instrument delivering touch and control closer than ever to that of the real thing – the CVP-900.
Polished Ebony Finish
Authentic key touch and sound aren't all the CVP-900 offers – it's ready to add a touch of beauty and elegance to any room, too. Modeled along the lines of a grand piano, it boasts a wood cabinet with a polished ebony finish and attractive back frame and rim.
Score and Lyric Indications with the Extra-Large Color LCD
Providing full-color graphics and handy messages, this new extra-large LCD enables smooth, easy operation and quick access to desired features and functions. You can even enjoy music score and lyric indications for more performance flexibility as well as sing-along karaoke fun with family and friends.
New Voices Including Sweet! Live! Cool! And Natural!
If you're looking for more performance versatility, you've found it. In addition to incredibly realistic Piano and XG voices, the more than 800 voices in the CVP-900 include a range of exciting new sounds. Sweet! voices let you enjoy delicate nuances like wind and brass instrument vibrato. Live! voices offer stereo samples of acoustic instruments for live feel, while. Cool! voices deliver the original detailed sound of electric instruments. You can also take advantage of Natural! voices, which use a vast amount of memory to assure optimum reproduction of other sounds.
New Accompaniment Styles & Music Finder
The new accompaniment styles cover virtually any musical genre. Each style also has three intros and endings, four variations, four fill-ins and one break. Depending on what song you'd like to play, Music Finder lets you search for suitable accompaniment styles using various criteria such as genre, keyword, and tempo.
Play And Sing! It's Easy With Guide Lamps
