Real Grand Expression 2 gives you the experience of playing an acoustic grand
The authentic feel and response of a real acoustic piano — the Clavinova CLP-735 delivers it. Yamaha calls it Real Grand Expression 2 — and they should know. They’ve been perfecting their piano-making craft for over a century, and their grand pianos are standard equipment in top studios and on premier concert stages worldwide. Packed with unique, expertly integrated Yamaha technologies, the Clavinova CLP-735 provides renowned expressive capability as it precisely executes your nuanced musical intent through the responsive touch of its keys and the feel of its pedals. As you play, you’ll revel in the experience of playing an acoustic grand piano.
VRM physical modeling, for stunning realism and expression
In a grand piano, sound resonates throughout the body of the instrument, producing distinctively rich, room-filling reverberation. Yamaha uses their Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) to re-create this acoustical phenomenon in the Clavinova CLP-735. VRM calculates the various states of the strings from one instant to the next for each of the instrument’s 88 notes. This enables vivid, richly varied expression that reflects the infinite number of factors involved in a live performance, including the velocity with which you strike the keys, which keys are pressed, and your pedal timing. The exhilaratingly lifelike sound that emanates from Yamaha’s latest-generation
The Clavinova CLP-735 grand piano voices are sourced from premium, hand-selected Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial concert grand pianos tuned to perfection by top professional piano tuners. Only then were the sounds meticulously sampled in varying velocities, for a stunningly realistic grand piano sound with smooth tonal transformations perfectly matched to key pressure. From staccato to legato, pianissimo to forte, you hear superbly expressive sound that responds beautifully to your touch. Featuring Yamaha’s Smooth Release technology, CLP-735 gives you realistic crisp staccatos and luxurious legatos for a nuanced response identical to a real grand piano.
Full-bodied resonance, just like an acoustic piano
In a process analogous to that of an acoustic piano, the Clavinova’s body materials and speaker positioning are meticulously calibrated to ensure that the instrument resonates optimally. To achieve a sonic image uncannily close to a grand piano’s, the CLP-735 employs tone escape ports in multiple locations throughout the cabinet; this allows the sound from the speakers to be projected naturally to the listener’s ears without getting trapped inside the instrument. The body of the CLP-735 has Acoustic Optimizers that control tone and regulate the flow of sound, for natural, smooth sonic richness across the entire keyboard range.
