Yamaha Clavinova CLP575 Digital Piano Polished Ebony
Real Grand Expression
Not only the full realization of the sound, the touch and the pedals, but the application of technologies to perfectly integrate these three elements into one piano. This piano produces that exact sound you want through the touch of the keys and the feel of the pedals. As you play, you will truly feel as though you are playing a grand piano.
Tone of the finest concert grand pianos
The CFX - Yamaha's finest concert grand selected and played by the winner of the 2010 International Chopin Piano Competition - and the Imperial from Bösendorfer are characterized by distinctive traits such as power, versatility, subtlety, lightness and mellowness.
Both voices are featured in the Clavinova. Tuned to perfection by an experienced technician with the sound from each key sampled individually, Clavinova truly captures the unique character of each outstanding instrument.
VRM physical modeling
In a grand piano, sound resonates throughout the body of the instrument, producing a rich reverberation that envelops the listener. This phenomena is reproduced perfectly in the Clavinova through Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM), which calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes from one instant to the next, allowing richly-varied expression that reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in playing the piano?such as the register and the number of keys pressed, the strength with which the keys are played and pedaling timing.
Smooth tonal transformations
Pianists can change the volume of the sound - as well as its dynamics - to achieve both mellow and bright tones by simply changing the pressure they apply to the keys.
The Clavinova features long, carefully-sampled recordings, reproduces them in rich detail and uses unique Yamaha technologies to achieve smooth transitions in response to your touch.
From staccato to legato
Featuring Yamaha Smooth Release technology, Clavinova offers the crisp tone heard when playing staccato as well as the lingering sound produced by releasing the keys more. This provides finely-nuanced response to the pianist's playing.
The moment a pianist's fingers are lifted from the keys of a grand piano, subtle changes occur in the tone as the damper is lowered onto the strings to mute its sound. Key-Off samples feature actual recordings of these changes, offering a faithful reproduction of the most subtle changes in the piano's sound, allowing for a more realistic performance.
Play many notes simultaneously without any unwanted dropped notes.
Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboard
The keyboard is created using Yamaha's unrivaled expertise of wood acquired through more than a century of crafting fine pianos. Just as with grand pianos, the material used for the keyboard is cut from wood that has been carefully dried specifically for use in making instruments.
Utilizing the same hammering system and spring-less mechanism as a grand piano, the action reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano from the heavy feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves. The three-sensor configuration accurately senses and interprets the behaviour of the keyboard for a response very similar to a grand piano.
The NWX keyboard features an escapement mechanism that reproduces a slight clicking sensation near the bottom of the key dip, and they have been designed in such a way that the click is discernible only on the lightest keystrokes, similar to the keyboard of a grand piano.
Synthetic ivory keytops
Reproduces the gentle, tactile surface of the ivory keyboards once used in only the finest pianos. It features highly-absorbent material that prevents fingers from slipping even after hours of play.
88-key Linear Graded Hammers
Faithfully reproduces the differences in the weight and return of each key. No two keys are alike.
GP Response Damper Pedal - authentic grand piano pedal feel
CLP-575 features the GP Response Damper Pedal, which offers a grand piano-style resistance curve, starting out light to the touch and growing heavier as the pedal is depressed further. This allows players to become accustomed to the nuances of delicate pedaling.
Similar to an acoustic piano, the Clavinova is calibrated carefully, with speaker positioning and body materials checked to ensure that the entire instrument resonates optimally. For a sound image that is very close to the grand piano, these instruments feature Tone Escapement in several locations throughout the body that allow the sound from the speakers to be projected to the listener's ears without being trapped inside the instrument.
Dedicated drivers for mid- and high-frequency ranges provide astonishingly powerful sound.
Acoustic Optimizer - Regulation to ensure a balanced tone
The body of the Clavinova contains Acoustic Optimizers that regulate the flow of sound and control tone. A new technology springing from Yamaha's intimate knowledge of the acoustic properties of the interiors of musical instruments, Acoustic Optimizers deliver natural, smooth feel and tone across the entire keyboard.
An easy-to-read LCD and intuitive layout enable simple operation of your Clavinova, giving you more time to focus on playing.
An abundance of piano lesson pieces
Features exercises for building piano technique from Hanon, Bayer, Czerny and Burgmüller.
Play along with a variety of rhythms
Enjoy performing with rhythms such as jazz, pop, latin and more.
Multi-track Song Recorder
The recording function featured in Clavinova digital pianos allows you to record your performances* with a single touch, which is useful when you want to review your playing objectively. Additionally, you can record up to 16 tracks for simultaneous playback, so different hands can be recorded separately or overdub parts with different Voices. (* Recordings are made in MIDI format, and can also be recorded to USB flash memory. Compatible software is required for playback of recorded data on a computer.)
USB Audio Recorder
Record performances to USB flash memory and create audio files (WAV format) you can save and play back on a computer, share with friends or create a CD.
A comprehensive range of keyboard Voices
In addition to its world-class grand pianos, the Clavinova CLP Series boast a library of impressive Voices including, electric pianos and a variety of organs. Enjoy the freedom to choose the ideal Voice for the genre of music you want to play.
New reverbs that offer ambiance and spatiality
The new reverbs allow to you enjoy the sensation of playing a piano recital in a large concert hall, or experience the ethereal, moving sound of a pipe organ played in a cathedral. The Clavinova Series allow you to incorporate these exquisite reverbs to add depth and atmosphere to your sound and enjoy concert hall ambience and spaciousness in the privacy of your own home.
IAC (Intelligent Acoustic Control), perfect for playing at home
The ability to adjust performance volume is extremely useful at home where players may not always be able to play at high volume levels. Often at low volumes, both bass and treble may become difficult to hear. To counter this, Clavinova is equipped with Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC), which adjusts the sound automatically, allowing players to enjoy balanced sound at any volume level.
The Stereophonic Optimizer - a new kind of headphone experience
Unique to Yamaha, the Stereophonic Optimizer adjusts the spacing of the sound and the separation from the piano when listening via the headphones, resulting in a spacious sound image that will inspire you to play for hours at a time.

If you use an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, Yamaha apps will make playing more convenient and enjoyable!
