Dynamic change of sound is dependent on touch.
An acoustic piano is a musical instrument whose sounds linger for a long period. The strength of touch varies not only the volume, but also the sound from bright to dark, creating rich expressiveness. Yamaha Clavinova CLP 465 Piano produces deep resonances by using piano sounds that have been accurately sampling for their entire length.
Proprietary technology creates smooth and dynamic changes according to the strength of the touch. Additionally, to achieve a performance feel rivaling that of a grand piano, the touch was carefully refined by many pianists who played it and gave their feedback for Yamaha’s research and development.
Piano Voices embody the careful attention only a piano manufacturer can give.
The grand piano Voices of a Yamaha Clavinova CLP 465 were obtained by recording the sounds of a Yamaha concert grand piano that led to the creation of the CFX, the piano selected for a performance by the 2010 winner of the famed International Frederick Chopin Piano Competition. A single piano best suited for recording was selected and then tuned to the finest possible condition by a veteran piano tuner. All the sounds were recorded resulting in a sound that displays not only the beauty of each note, but the harmonized sound of a single piano.

The “GH3 (Graded Hammer 3) keyboard” faithfully reproduces the touch of a grand piano.
The touch of the Yamaha Clavinova CLP 465 Piano keyboard has been praised by pianists for a performance feel that makes you forget it’s a digital piano. The secret behind this superior touch is the same hammering system and spring-less mechanism as a grand piano. Depending on the weight of the hammer, the force of your touch and the natural key return when you release it, the Yamaha Clavinova CLP 465 Piano faithfully reproduces the keyboard touch of an acoustic piano from the heavy feel in the lower range to the light feel in the higher range. Also important is Yamaha’s unique three-sensor system, which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard, just like a grand piano. When playing continuously or with a light trill, techniques used in many pieces such as Für Elise, you can play with a bright, vivid feel.
