The CVP-409 has all the luscious, expressive sound of a real acoustic grand piano - with 4-level sampling, key-off sounds, stereo sustain, string resonance and more.
The NW keyboard with wooden white keys effectively reproduces the authentic touch, weight and feel of a real grand piano.
This specially crafted keyboard lets you use techniques only possible on grand pianos, such as playing the same note successively and having the sounds blend smoothly even without use of the damper pedal, or playing the same key quickly and having perfect articulation without the sound cutting off unnaturally.
The CVP-409 is packed with hundreds of dynamic voices, including the ultra-realistic, expressive Super Articulation Voices and Mega Voices, as well as 408 accompaniment styles.
It also has a USB Audio Recorder that lets you capture your entire performance - including style and song playback, as well as your singing - and easily bring it to your computer for CD burning or uploading to websites.
Introducing a completely new level of sonic realism and musical expressiveness, featuring multiple samples across the keyboard with sophisticated velocity switching - for incredibly authentic instrument sounds.
It contains not only the basic samples of the instrument but also the performance techniques used with it.
On a guitar for instance, players will hear open and mute string sounds, dead notes, hammering effects, slide effects, harmonics and a wide range of strum and body noises.
In technical terms, MegaVoice duplicates an instrument's behavior. In sonic terms, this gives the keyboard stunningly realistic sounds.
Instrumental Active Field Control (iAFC):
This sophisticated technology outputs sound picked up by built-in microphones together with the Clavinova's internal sound through rear speakers, making automatic adjustments to create a richer sound that best matches the acoustic characteristics of the room you're playing in.
It also uses signal processing to reproduce an authentic damper effect. When the damper pedal is pressed, it delivers discretely sampled overtones, harmonics and resonance to recreate the warm and spacious sound.
USB Audio Recorder:
You can record your performance as audio data to a USB storage device.
Connect a microphone or guitar to the instrument and enjoy recording a guitar and keyboard performance together, or record your singing along with song playback.
16-track song recorder:
Use the built-in song recorder with up to 16 tracks to create complex, multi-part arrangements one instrument at a time.
After recording, save to the internal memory, which retains data even when the power is switched off, on a storage device, or to a PC.
