YAMAHA CLP 370

All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [français]

High class digital piano with real-wood white keys and synthetic ivory key tops, and 4-level AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling quality voices. Connect directly to the Internet and enjoy your favorite exercise and song.

The CLP-370 offers unparalleled expressive capabilities thanks to its Pure CF Sampling coupled with 4-level Dynamic Stereo Sampling. The resemblance to the performance of a grand piano is even further enhanced thanks to the Natural Wood (NW) keyboard with synthetic ivory keytops which offers a touch that is virtually indistinguishable from the ivory keyboard of a concert grand piano. The Built-in LAN port enables the CLP-370 to be connected to the Internet directly for a wide variety of streaming piano radio programs and a selection of well-known method and exercise pieces.

Natural Wood (NW) Keyboard with Synthetic Ivory Keytops

This type of keyboard features the feel of real ivory. The special Natural Wood keyboard also uses real-wood white keys. The key surface is soft and slightly porous, giving the keys added grip and a natural friction that lets you play easily. The authentic touch and feel of the keys goes far beyond existing electronic keyboards, it makes you feel as if you’re playing a real grand piano. This specially crafted keyboard lets you use techniques only possible on grand pianos, such as playing the same note successively and having the sounds blend smoothly even without use of the damper pedal, or playing the same key quickly and having perfect articulation without the sound cutting off unnaturally.

Pure CF Sampling for superb tonality

Yamaha technicians selected a CFIIIS full concert grand with the highest sound quality, and tuned it to the finest possible condition. They then used our unique Pure CF Sampling technique to sample all of its sounds, in order to create the CLP sound. As a result, you enjoy the same natural tonal response as a top-quality piano.

Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) Dynamic Stereo Sampling

The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) is a sampling system which creates sound close to that of an acoustic instrument by using digital technology to record the instrument sound and applying high-quality digital filter technology to the recorded audio samples. The waveform of the sound created by playing the key of an acoustic piano differs depending on the playing strength from pianissimo to fortissimo. The AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling can produce such dynamic nuances by recording samples of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expressive quality and potential becomes.

Instrumental Active Field Control (IAFC)

This sophisticated technology outputs sound picked up by built-in microphones together with the Clavinova’s internal sound through rear speakers, making automatic adjustments to create a richer sound that best matches the acoustic characteristics of the room you’re playing in. It also uses signal processing to reproduce an authentic damper effect. When the damper pedal is pressed, it delivers discretely sampled overtones, harmonics and resonance to recreate the warm and spacious sound.

Selection of Voices

Choose from a large selection of other stereo-sampled musical instrument sounds to perform with. These sounds provide added realism for more music playing enjoyment.

128-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. A maximum of up to 128-note can be played at once.

USB TO DEVICE Terminal

Insert a USB flash memory in the USB TO DEVICE terminal on the instrument. It would let you save or load the registered settings and user songs created on the instrument, as well as read data from the connected device.

USB TO HOST Terminal

Dive in and take advantage of the wide world of computer music software. Connections and setup are exceptionally easy, and you can play back your computer recorded parts with different instrument sounds - all from a single instrument.

Choice of Finishes

Each Yamaha Clavinova has an attractive, elegant finish to complement the room you place it in.
