Yamaha Clavinova CSP Series Pianos

Yamaha’s CSP series offers a whole new concept in digital pianos. With just two buttons, the CSP170 and CSP150 look stylish and uncluttered, and as stand-alone instruments offer a responsive and expressive touch, along with authentic Grand Piano sounds. The fun begins when you connect the CSP to a smartphone or tablet. Using Yamaha’s innovative Smart Pianist app, you can very easily and intuitively make use of the 700+ voices, 450+ styles and plenty of brand new features designed to satisfy pianists of any standard.

Main Features

The CSP range has inherited all the hallmarks of Yamaha’s renowned Clavinova series, including the sounds of two of the world’s most iconic Grand Pianos; the Yamaha CFX, and new enhanced samples of the Bosendorfer Imperial. Popular features from the Clavinova range are also found in the Yamaha CSP range, including Binaural Sampling when playing with headphones, Yamaha’s unique Virtual Resonance Modelling, and the expressive keyboard action found on two of the latest Clavinovas. Where the CSP series comes into its own is through the Smart Pianist App.

For the first time in a digital piano, you are able to play along to any song downloaded onto your Smart Device. The App will even work out the chords to the song for you, allowing you to play along to the chart or score. It will also create a suitable piano accompaniment for the music to help!

For beginner pianists, the Stream Lights feature guides you through which notes to play in real time, allowing you to go at your own pace and improve your reading, playing and performance.

There are over 700 voices to choose from, featuring Yamaha’s Super Articulation, recreating natural breathing and phrasing, dependant on the instrument selected.

470 backing bands are also available to follow your playing – not only listening to the chords, but also matching the volume you are playing at!

The CSP series pianos come with a microphone input, allowing you not only to sing along to your favourite songs or original tracks, but to make use of Yamaha’s vocal harmony feature.

All the features within the Smart Pianist are so easy to use, and you can save your favourite voices and styles, to come back to again.

Introducing the Models

The flagship model of the series is the CSP-170. The technology and capability of the CSP series is combined with a powerful four-way, two-sound speaker system, composed of two pairs of 45W speakers. The CSP-170 also features Yamaha’s Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboard action, with synthetic ivory and ebony keytops and escapement.

The CSP-150 is the entry-level model, with all of the technology of the CSP-170 powered by a pair of 30W speakers, and brought to life by Yamaha’s Graded Hammer 3 X (GH3X) keyboard action, with synthetic ivory and ebony keytops and escapement.

Both models are available in three finishes; Polished Ebony, Satin Black, or Satin White.

More Features

Piano Room – within this area of the app you are able to choose between the five acoustic piano sounds, and here you can alter the piano’s settings, including lid setting, string resonance – you can even edit each key’s setting individually!

Voice Mode – Here you can choose from the hundreds of voices within the app, in an easy-to-use layout. Voices are grouped within subheadings, such as Piano, Guitar & Bass, or Synth. You can also Layer or Split multiple voices, and easily swipe along the screen to adjust the split point!

Style Mode – Just as with the voice selection, styles are grouped under subheadings such as Pop & Rock, or Latin & World. Each style has 4 variations, which can be changed along to your dynamic expression, manually, or automatically – ie every 4 bars.

Song Mode – this is perhaps the most groundbreaking section of the Smart Pianist App. There are 403 built-in songs, complete with musical score and lyrics. This area is where you will find the Stream Lights features – the falling lights helping you to correctly position your hands and learn in a new, fun way. In this area you can also access your entire music collection, be it iTunes, Spotify, or from your dropbox. The App will listen to the song and work out the chords automatically! You can then build your own arrangement

Summary

There are endless possibilities with these exciting new instruments, and the app is very user-friendly. Whether you are a complete beginner looking to teach yourself, a singer-songwriter creating your own backing tracks, or simply someone who wants to play along to their favourite songs, these instruments cater for it all.
