New, exciting features make playing a sheer delight
The CVP-805 brings a bevy of new, exciting features to Yamaha’s Clavinova CVP digital piano range. Chord Looper records your chord progressions so that the Style engine can loop them for you, freeing you to engage in two-hand playing or soloing without having to deal with playing changes. Playing through headphones becomes a thrilling experience with Binaural CFX sampling, which re-creates the 3D perspective of instrument positioning right in your ‘phones. Bluetooth audio has been added, letting you stream your favorite music from your devices and play along through your Clavinova’s speaker system. The CVP-805 adds a USB-to-Host audio/MIDI interface for connectivity with music software on your computer. Playlists let you attach settings such as Style, MIDI/audio song, or Registration Memories to any song you create for instant recall. Lastly, Smart Pianist compatibility lets you access many features of your Clavinova such as Audio to Score via a smartphone or tablet.
Two world-class concert grands in one digital piano
Yamaha’s Clavinova CVP-805 has two world-class concert grands onboard: Yamaha’s own flagship CFX — selected and played by the winner of the 2010 International Chopin Piano Competition — and the legendary Bösendorfer Imperial — the eight-octave beast from one of the world’s oldest and most esteemed piano makers. Characterized by distinctive traits, including power, versatility, subtlety, and mellowness, both of these superb pianos are featured (by name) in the Clavinova. Tuned to perfection by experienced technicians and with each key recorded individually, the Clavinova truly captures the unique tonal character of each of these peerless instruments.
Piano Room with Session Mode: your dream piano studio
The CVP-805’s enhanced Piano Room with Session Mode not only includes world-class Yamaha and Bösendorfer pianos; you also get a satisfying selection of vintage electric pianos. Enter Session Mode, select a piano, choose a room — or a concert hall — and invite backing musicians to jam as you practice and perform in one of 525 available Accompaniment Styles. These virtual session cats automatically follow your harmonies and your volume expression using Clavinova’s innovative Dynamics Control. You can activate and deactivate each one depending on your accompaniment requirements. In the Piano Room, you can even record your sessions with a single button press!
More than just a piano
One of the key features of a CVP Clavinova is the multitude of different styles that you can control in real-time just by playing chords. Accompaniment Styles enhance your performances with ensembles of virtual musicians in a variety of musical genres. From small jazz groupings to a full symphony orchestra, what you play determines what chords or harmony they play, along with their dynamics. Yamaha developed these Styles with professional session musicians from around the world to give you authentic, studio-grade backing for your performances. You can also use Styles to arrange your compositions in real time and easily embellish them with Intros, Endings, and Fill-Ins.
Packed with premium content
Pre-loaded with Yamaha’s premium Voice and Style content from their flagship Genos workstation, the Clavinova CVP-805 comes packed with a huge library of great sounds (1,315 Voices, 49 Drum/SFX Kits, and 480 XG Voices) to suit any musical genre. The Clavinova CVP-805 also features a guitar/mic input and USB-to-Device for convenient audio recording and playback to and from Flash drive. And the built-in Lyrics Display function lets you display lyrics from MP3 song files on the keyboard’s sharp, bright, color LCD — perfect for karaoke! The Clavinova CVP-805 can even connect to an external display via an optional USB display adapter for the ultimate in audience participation.
Powerful production tools onboard
The Clavinova CVP-805 provides a range of powerful production tools. Vocal Cancel lets you effectively remove the vocal or lead instrument from an audio song file to create minus-one tracks for practice or karaoke-style performances, and even independently change the song’s pitch and tempo. The Clavinova CVP-805’s onboard Styles include audio rhythm tracks played by actual musicians, so your Clavinova isn’t emulating the real thing — it’s the real deal! And for karaoke, the Clavinova CVP-805’s professional-quality background singers put you center stage. Sing the song and Yamaha’s state-of-the-art VH2 (Vocal Harmony 2) chip does the rest!
Play a hit song, one light at a time
The CVP-805 is packed with cutting-edge features that make music creation a fun, interactive experience. Learn classic songs the easy way with Follow Lights-orchestrated song files that trigger your Clavinova’s Guide Lamps to illuminate over the correct keys. Compatibility with Yamaha’s You Are the Artist software gives you a real band experience while performing music by top artists such as Coldplay, Adele, and Taylor Swift. Connect a microphone to your CVP-805 Clavinova and sing along with your keyboard performance or Karaoke song files from YamahaMusicSoft.com. The CVP Clavinova even lets you plug in or stream from a portable smart device and enjoy listening — and playing along — through the Clavinova’s high-resolution 130-watt stereo speaker system. Clavinovas are really popular at Music Experience — and for good reason. The latest generation incorporates not only everything Yamaha has learned in over three decades of Clavinova development; these fine digital pianos embody the collective wisdom of Yamaha’s century-plus of crafting fine acoustic pianos.
