Three-step Dynamic Stereo Sampling (DSS) Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) tone generation
Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) tone generation samples each instrument to generate a truly accurate sound, varying the volume and timbre of sound according to the touch on the keyboard. Three-step AWM takes this farther, to assure a warmer, more natural sound, with Dynamic Stereo Sampling (DSS) piano samples. The samples are recorded at different levels, from loud to soft, so that differences in volume and timbre occur depending on how heavy or light the player's touch is. By using sound picked up by a microphone to create a virtual soundboard, the keyboard assures an expansive, more natural sound.

Stereo sustain samples and key-off samples
Stereo sustain samples recreate the resonances of the strings and soundboard when the damper pedal is pressed. This resonance is one of the factors that give a grand piano such a unique sound. Key-off samples provide the delicate sound keys make when they are released.

88-key grade-weighted Keyboard
The keyboard uses a weighted mechanism and grade-weighted keys which grow gradually heavier from the top of the keyboard to the bottom, exactly like a grand piano. Unlike conventional digital piano keyboards that use springs or oil dampers to simulate a piano feel, the keyboard uses weights and mechanical linkages to achieve outstanding realism.

Real-wood white keys
The Keyboard uses real wooden white keys like those found in acoustic pianos. And just like an acoustic piano, the key weighting gets progressively lighter higher up on the keyboard, for a feel that is virtually indistinguishable from that of an acoustic piano. Sensors under the hammers and cushions process damper on/off and hammer velocity information accurately interpreting the performance of even the most demanding pianist.

64-note extended polyphony (max.)
Conventional digital pianos quickly run out of notes during fast, dense legato passages: sustained notes are cut off as the instrument steals notes to make room for new notes. 64-note polyphony allows 64 notes to be played at once.

28 voices
Different voices provide a broad range of sonic options.

Two-track song recorder
Use the built-in song recorder to create two-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 floppy disk, or to a PC.

Digital reverb and digital effects
The built-in digital reverb simulates the way sound is reflected from the floor, walls and ceiling to add more depth and life to the sounds of the Clavinova. Chorus, tremolo, symphonic and delay effects add greater richness and harmonic content to any voice. The brilliance effect makes it possible to continuously adjust the timbre of a voice, from mellow for laid-back jazz piano, to bright for cutting rock piano.

Dual mode
Dual mode allows two voices to be played side-by-side. For instance, strings and piano can be combined. When playing staccato, the piano voice is heard. Playing legato will generate string tones, adding depth to the performance.

Split mode
Split mode allows two separate instruments to be played at once, one with the left hand and one with the right, providing a duet effect. Simply choose the instruments. For example, bass can be assigned to the left hand and jazz piano to the right.

50 built-in demonstration piano songs with sheet music
Listening to and studying demonstration songs make it easy to learn to use the features of a Clavinova. Sheet music for the built-in demonstration songs is included.

Seven temperaments
Choose from the selection of seven temperaments (Equal, Pure Major, Pure Minor, Pythagorean, Mean Tone, Werckmeister and Kirnberger) to match the period of the music, or to experiment in a modern context.

MIDI connectivity
Full MIDI connectivity makes it easy to connect to other MIDI devices or PCs. Use PC sequencing software, play back songs downloaded from the Internet, move MIDI files to the PC for emailing, and more.

PC interface (TO HOST)
Connect the keyboard to a Windows or Macintosh personal computer via the PC interface using a single cable, without the need for costly additional hardware. The PC interface makes it possible to download the Clavinova's voices and store them in your PC, and allows 3rd-party sequencing and music instruction programs to work with the Clavinova.

Dual headphone jacks
Dual headphone jacks allow two people to practice at once without generating any sound that others can hear.

Music rest
A music rest makes it easy to secure music books and scores.

A built-in metronome makes it easy to keep track of tempo.

Three foot pedals
Three foot pedals function exactly as they do on an acoustic piano.

Woodgrain cabinet
An attractive woodgrain cabinet with an elegant finish looks great in any home. F01PO Polished Orange, F01PE Polished Ebony, F01PB Polished Blue or F01PR Polished Red.

Sliding key cover
A sliding key cover protects the keyboard when not in use.

40W x 2 amplifier
Powerful amplification with clear, crisp sound.
