- New Yamaha Clavinova CLP-685 Digital Piano
The Yamaha CLP-685 Clavinova Digital Piano is the top-of-the-line in the CLP-600 range, offering the cream of the crop with regard to appointments and features. Whether you're a student or a seasoned pro, the CLP-685 captures the heart and soul of an acoustic grand in the form of a classroom-, home- or studio-friendly sized upright cabinet - now you can have the best of both worlds!
The newly introduced GrandTouch keys offer increased responsiveness, as well as a more generous dynamic range than on previous Clavinova models. The natural, balanced response of an acoustic is matched on the CLP with an accurate response captured from the tip to the back of each key. The inclusion of carefully adjusted counterweights on the CLP-685 means that when performing pieces of music that requires the utmost control, you can rest assured that the lightest of touches will be translated immaculately.
The black keys are finished in ebony, with synthetic ivory tops reproducing the tactile playing surface of authentic ivory keys that were a staple in older acoustic pianos. Whether you're performing for 5 minutes or 5 hours, the absorbent material retains a luxurious feel under your fingertips.
The easy to use LCD display allows you to keep on track of everything with regard to connected devices, track recording, voice selection, etc. At your disposal, there are 49 voice selections available on the panel with 480 XG voices for MIDI song playback, plus 14 drum voices for enhanced percussive control. Not only that, but the range of preset voice demos available on the CLP-685 is 21 voice demos, 50 classic tracks, and a whopping 303 lesson songs.
Thanks to the internal flash memory, 16-track recording in available, with USB Audio Recording of WAV files with 44.1kHz sample rate at 16-bit resolution in stereo, perfect for laying down your masterpieces, or simply keeping track of and identifying any areas for improvement with regard to your technique.
The CLP-585 is equipped with the powerful tone of flagship Yamaha concert grand, the CFX, and the wondrous beauty of the Bósendorfer Imperial to give your performances a majestic air. Thanks to their tireless efforts to reproduce the inner workings and subtle nuances than generate a grand piano's timbre, Yamaha have succeeded in capturing the resonant characteristics to perfection. Enhanced Virtual Resonance Modelling (VRM) ensures the piano body resonates in the same way as an acoustic piano, resulting in a rich reverberation that produces an enveloping sound.
However, the team at Yamaha appreciate that sometimes you may want to practise or perform without disturbing others. With regard to this, they have conducted advanced binaural sampling testing to match the realistic feeling of performing on a concert grand, even when you're using headphones. This is particularly useful for those who wish to hone and master their playing technique without having to worry about waking the neighbours.
In keeping with modern appointments, as well as USB to Host and USB to Device connectivity, the CLP-685 is also equipped with built-in Bluetooth for wireless connection to iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Android devices. You can perform along to your favourite tracks and music apps via the Bluetooth interface.
The Yamaha CLP-685 Clavinova Digital Piano is perfect for those who are looking for a grand piano playing experience in the comfort of their own home, without the footprint of an acoustic grand piano. Whether you're a student honing their skills or a more experienced pianist who demands the best, you'll fall in love with the new CLP-685.
