Yamaha, one of the pioneering makers of musical instruments, has combined technology with innovation to offer a winning piano-playing experience.
The brand has introduced the new Clavinova CSP-150 and CSP-170 digital pianos, that will make all your musical dreams come true. Now it’s possible to play the piano with your favourite artists – Billy Joel, Sting, John Lennon, Elton John and others – even if you have never touched the keys before. These instruments are a first for the world – they can scan audio songs from the music library of your smart tablet, analyse the chord structure, produce a piano score and show you what keys to play and when, with the intuitive Stream Lights feature.
With an authentic sound and the response of a real wood keyboard, Yamaha’s Clavinova CSP series is designed to offer a superb musical encounter. Various colours and finishes are available to choose from.
These new introductions effectively ‘gamify’ the piano experience, enabling users to instantly play their favourite songs with original artist recordings and perform increasingly complex arrangements, all without any fear of failure or boring practice.
Most of the features of the CSP are accessed through a tablet device, using an exclusive app called Smart Pianist. It features an ‘Audio to Score’ function that automatically creates a piano accompaniment score from songs on your device, allowing you to play along with your favourite tunes.
When you’re ready to take on the challenge of performing solo, the CSP offers built-in tracks for immediate enjoyment or additional tunes for purchase from Yamaha MusicSoft. And even if you’re not confident in your own playing abilities, you can trust the Stream Lights to show you the way.
When you are playing the instrument all by yourself, you can enjoy accompaniment from a dynamic backing band that provides a wide variety of patterns across a range of genres to match your performance. You can also connect a microphone and sing along with harmony functions that allow you to automatically create a chorus backup for your routine.
The models from this series offer unrivalled capacity for musical expression, with a huge variety of voices that belie their simple, elegant exteriors. You can also enjoy ensemble sessions with rock or jazz bands, and even bossa nova orchestras, simply by assigning specific styles.
The CSP Series feature piano voices created with samples from Yamaha’s flagship CFX concert grand piano and the world-renowned Bösendorfer concert grand. These superb instruments reproduce the way sound echoes differently in various venues, such as halls, cathedrals and smaller rooms, and even recreate the subtle changes in tone that occur when the lid of a grand piano is opened or closed. With keys that rebound quickly for rapid playback of repeated notes, the CSP Series offer a feel strikingly similar to that of an actual grand piano.
They are available at Ambassador Stores in Bahrain.
