Put Your Hands On Two World-Class Concert Grands

The CLP-785 gives you two renowned pianos known for their distinctive power, versatility, and subtlety: the 9-foot concert grand Yamaha CFX and the Imperial from Bösendorfer. With improved Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) you get vivid, richly-varied expression for truly resonating sound. VRM calculates the various string states from one instant to the next for each note on the keyboard As a result, the Clavinova sound features a seemingly limitless number of elements in common with an acoustic piano.

A Keyboard With Concert Grand Piano Craftsmanship

The GrandTouch™ keyboard is Yamaha’s latest keyboard action which can faithfully translate every nuance from your fingertips into the music. Just like a grand piano, this piano action with individual key counter-weights replicates the pleasing response felt by the hammers hitting the strings, providing you with complete control over the music. The keys are even coated in a synthetic material to ensure your fingers don’t slip when playing for extended periods.

Real Grand Expression 2 Modeling For Unparalleled Tone

The way how the hammers, dampers, and strings interact in a grand piano is complicated. The CLP-785 digitally recreates the interaction of all these parts, responding to the intensity of playing and release of the keys, and the speed and depth with which the keys are pressed. Grand Expression translates every nuance from your playing into the limitless tonal variations of a grand piano. The illusion of playing an acoustic instrument is further perfected by Real Grand Expression 2 (RGE2). Exclusive to Yamaha, this revolutionary technology converts the slightest variations in touch into limitless dynamic and harmonic nuances.

Historically Accurate Samples

The CLP-785 comes with all-new pianoforte samples from the late-18th to early-19th century composers such as Haydn, Mozart, Scarlatti, and Beethoven. Now you can accurately perform music from this era on samples from two original pianofortes to suit your repertoire.

Binaural Sampling Technology

For a breath-taking playing experience, the CLP-785 uses special new binaural recordings alongside Yamaha’s Stereophonic Optimizer to be envelope you with music while using headphones. The Stereophonic Optimizer processes audio to replicate the experience of sitting in front of an acoustic piano with a spacious and natural sound image that makes you forget you’re wearing headphones.
