The GrandTouch Keyboard
The CLP 775 features Yamaha’s highly regarded GrandTouch keyboard. This mechanism offers an incredibly responsive touch and fantastic dynamic range. Carefully made with a specially dried wood, the CLP 775 personifies the classic feel of an acoustic piano. Yamaha has faithfully sourced synthetic materials of the highest quality to produce a truly authentic keyboard touch and sound.
With the Yamaha CLP 775, no two keys are the same. Each and every key has been weighted separately to perfectly emulate the touch and feel of an acoustic grand piano. It’s this sort of attention to detail that really makes the CLP 775 really stand out.
Having a damper pedal that reacts to your performance is essential. This is why the Yamaha CLP 775 has the Grand Piano Response pedal. Often with cheaper digital pianos the damper pedal is simply on or off, whereas on an acoustic piano you choose the amount of pedal to apply. With the CLP 775, you can use the pedal in the exact same way as an acoustic.
By making minute adjustments to the pedal depression, you can change the depth and character of the piano sound. This pedal even emulates the grand piano-style resistance curve which gradually becomes heavier the further the pedal is depressed. Now you can play with more detail that ever before.
External device connection
The CLP 775 features both Bluetooth MIDI and audio technology. The user-friendly set-up allows you to connect your smartphone or tablet to a series of bespoke apps to enhance your playing experience. So now you can analyse your favourite songs, calculate the chords, display the music, and play along! With these apps, you can explore endless playing possibilities.
Grand Expression Modeling
Recreating the tone of a grand piano is complicated. The way how the hammers, dampers, and strings interact together 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.
Music you can feel
Travel from your living room to the concert hall. The CLP 775 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 a powerful bass, 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.
Historically accurate samples
What really makes the Yamaha CLP 775 stand out are the all-new pianoforte samples. The pianoforte is an early rendition of the modern-day grand piano and helped pave the way for new classical and romantic composers. Most repertoire for the pianoforte is from the late-18th to early-19th century where composers such as Haydn, Mozart, and the younger Beethoven wrote their piano music. Now, only with the Yamaha CLP 775 piano, you can perform music from this influential era with pinpoint historical accuracy, while also reaping the benefits of a digital instrument. And thanks to the CLP 775 having samples from two original pianofortes, you can even choose which pianoforte suits your repertoire.
Virtual Resonance Modelling
Virtual Resonance Modelling (VRM) technology optimises your piano’s resonance. In an acoustic piano, each note blends with the next for natural swell and decay of sound. VRM uses an advanced register to measure the strings’ distance and interaction with each other. It can also calculate the intensity of your performance and add an appropriate decay to each note. This gives the CLP 775 a more acoustic feel with textured tones, removing any unnatural breaks in sound.
Binaural sampling technology
The CLP 775 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.
