Gorgeous in sound, elegant in appearance, the new CVP series Clavinovas feature a stunning new design that draws on the best of past CVP models. The amazingly authentic voices and dynamic styles deliver truly professional quality sound, while the sophisticated yet easy-to-use features (including Internet connectivity) make the instrument an endless source of musical enjoyment – for young and old alike. Just one touch and you'll understand why it's truly grand!
Traditional craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology
Unsurpassed beauty and elegance
Every bit as beautiful as it sounds, the Clavinova radiates the dignified, commanding presence of a grand piano with its solid, finely finished cabinetry. The Polished Ebony finish (309PE only) recreates the formal elegance and high-class appearance of a concert grand, while the Polished Mahogany models (309PM only) have warm, natural wood grain to complement and attractively furnish any interior. The CVP Series sports several beautiful finishes: Polished Ebony (309PE), Polished Mahogany (309PM), Mahogany (307M, 305M, 303M), Cherry (307C, 305C, 303C, 301C), and Dark Rosewood (307, 305, 303, 301).
A wealth of features and expressive power – for more musical fun
Seeing is believing
Here's a piano with a view. The extra-large LCDs – including full color displays on the CVP-309/307/305 – give you an at-a-glance view of all main settings, and make operation easier than ever before. The Score display conveniently shows the notation in the LCD, while the Lyrics display lets you see and sing along with the words onscreen. And you can customize the display to your liking – using your own digital photos for the background. Enjoy the convenience, enjoy the control, and, most of all, enjoy the view.
True piano feel (CVP-307 and CVP-305)
More than any other keyboard, the Clavinova reproduces the experience of playing an actual grand piano. Thanks to the GH3 (Graded Hammer 3) technology, the new keyboard provides the characteristic weight balance between key and hammer, and features weight gradations of the keys – heavy in the lower end, light in the upper keys. With two velocity sensors, it even lets you use techniques previously possible only on a real grand piano, such as playing the same note repeatedly with perfect articulation.
State-of-the-art technology delivers authentic sound
Exceptionally realistic AWM tone generation
The heart of the Clavinova's voices is in the AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) tone generation technology – providing instrumental sounds of amazing realism and depth. The piano voices in particular benefit from the new Dynamic Stereo Sampling (DSS) system, which features recordings of differently played dynamics – from loud to soft – in order to fully capture the varying nuances in timbre and tone of a grand piano. Stereo Sustain Samples recreate the unique resonance of the strings and soundboard of a real grand piano when the damper pedal is pressed, while Key-off samples include the characteristic sound that occurs when a key is released and the dampers fall back onto the strings.
Making it real
Mega Voice technology (CVP-309, CVP-307 and CVP-305)
To enhance the playback of your recorded songs and the built-in accompaniment styles, the Clavinova features Yamaha's groundbreaking Mega Voice technology. Each Mega Voice not only has the fundamental tone of the original instrument, but also the various playing techniques and performance sounds – such as finger slides and fret noise on guitar voices – giving the sound incredible realism and expressiveness. The bundled CD-ROM includes the MEGAEnhancer, a software tool for automatically converting sequenced song data enabling it to take advantage of the Mega Voice capabilities.
The wide world of music at your fingertips
Play like a pro
Unleash the performer in you
Performance assistant technology makes playing like a pro easy for absolutely anyone! Whatever your level, you can make great sounding music the moment you first touch the keyboard. It's musical magic – everything you play is beautifully and professionally embellished based on the chords being played, and the accompaniment of the Clavinova follows your every move, playing in perfect rhythm and musical harmony. With Performance assistant technology turned ON, every note you play essentially becomes the "right" note!
Karaoke fun The Clavinova is perfect for sing-along fun with your family and friends. Simply connect an optional microphone, play back your favorite song data, and start the show! You can have the song lyrics shown in the display – or even output them to a separate TV monitor (CVP-309 / 307 / 305).
Automatic professional backing for your performance
The Auto Accompaniment features of the Clavinova open up a new world of performance possibilities. The dynamic accompaniment styles encompass virtually every musical genre, and give you several different intros, variations, fill-ins, and endings to make you sound like a pro. If you don't know which style to choose, let the powerful Music Finder feature help. Simply select a song title or keyword, and it reconfigures the entire instrument, including the proper voices, style and effects.
Song playback and recording
When it comes to playing back popular songs with complete rhythmic backing and accompaniment, the Clavinova has you covered – with a total of 120 songs in the built-in Song Book (56 songs on the CVP-301). You can call up the music notation for each song, and even the lyrics for certain songs. For the creative musician, the Clavinova contains a virtual 16-track recording studio, letting you craft complex songs and arrangements one track at a time, using the realistic voices built into the instrument.
