Travel from your living room to the concert hall. The CLP 725 includes samples from Yamaha's flagship models - the Yamaha CFX concert grand and Bösendorfer Imperial. The CFX grand piano represents 19 years of research and development to combine traditional craftsmanship with modern-day engineering. This harmonious combination enabled the engineers at Yamaha to examine every element of the piano and discover how each detail can impact the sound.
In 2010, the CFX was the piano of choice by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition. Since then, the CFX has gained worthy recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of all time. Now you can experience this grandeur while in the comfort of your own home. Boasting scintillating highs alongside powerful lows, these CFX samples will transform your practice into a recital.
Founded in 1828, the Bösendorfer Imperial holds a unique position amongst piano makers. By utilising the Viennese tradition of hand-crafting every part of the piano, the Imperial produces a uniquely warm bass alongside a singing treble. This tone is commonly referred to as the "Viennese Sound". Featuring a design influenced by distinguished composers such as Brahms and Strauss, the Imperial is frequently lauded as the only piano capable of withstanding the energetic playing of Franz Liszt. Still to this day, each and every Imperial is meticulously hand-crafted to perfection by some of the world's best craftsmen.
The GrandTouch-S keyboard is Yamaha's latest keyboard action which can faithfully translate every nuance from your fingertips into the music. Just like a grand piano, this piano action can replicate the pleasing response felt by the hammers hitting the strings, providing you with complete control over the music. The keys are even coated in a synthetic material to ensure your fingers don't slip when playing for extended periods of time.
Grand Expression Modeling
Recreating the tone of a grand piano is complicated. The way how the hammers, dampers, and strings interact together to create an infinite range of tonal expression. All pianos in the 700 series can digitally recreate the interaction of all these parts to create an unparalleled tone. These pianos not only respond to the intensity of playing and release of the keys, but also the speed and depth with which the keys are pressed. Grand Expression Modeling can translate every nuance from your playing into the same limitless tonal variation of a grand piano.
Binaural sampling technology
The CLP 725 offers a breath-taking playing experience. By using special binaural recordings alongside Yamaha’s Stereophonic Optimiser, you are now able to be enveloped by music while using headphones. The Stereophonic Optimiser processes the audio in a way which adjusts the spacing of the sound to replicate the experience of sitting in front of an acoustic piano. What does this mean for you? Now you can enjoy a spacious and natural sound image that removes the drawbacks of performing with headphones.
External device connection
Who said pianos had to be traditional? The Smart Pianist app offers a range of features that places you in control. The app enables you to select instrument voices, adjust various settings, record your performance, and much more! You will find yourself making music faster with this app as it gives you the freedom to do it via your smart device.
Want to play along with your favourite songs? Now you can! Smart Pianist scans the audio songs loaded in your music library, analyses the chord progressions, and then displays them for you on the screen of your smart device. It's that simple. Play along as the chords scroll by, all the while hearing the song playback through your piano's speaker system. Loading MIDI songs into the app will also allow you to follow along with digital sheet music while you play. Please note: Smart Pianist functionality may vary dependent on the model of Yamaha piano used.
