Piano Performance & Feel

CVP-805 features a broad array of piano sounds including those of two of the world’s finest concert grand pianos: The Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial.

Yamaha’s flagship 9’ concert grand piano, the CFX, offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass with a sound that projects to the furthest reaches of any concert hall. The CFX was played by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010, and has since gained recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of modern times.

Originally founded in 1828, Bösendorfer holds a unique position amongst piano makers as the only manufacturer in the world still utilises the Viennese tradition of hand-crafted design that produces the uniquely warm bass, singing treble and rich tonal colours known as the “Viennese Sound”. The development of Bösendorfer pianos has been influenced by such famed composers as Brahms and Johann Strauss, resulting in an instrument lauded as the only piano capable of withstanding the frenetic playing of Franz Liszt.

Every key has been sampled individually, and thanks to binaural sampling techniques, the CVP Series provides a fully immersive concert grand piano experience, even when using headphones.
This superb sound has been paired with the GrandTouch keyboard, which allows pianists to play with nuanced dynamics through the entire range of the instrument, and faithfully reproduces the individual differences in the weight and return of each key.



Instruments Reproduced in Perfect Detail

From breathy saxophones to ringing guitars and warm, resonant strings, the CVP Series features an impressive collection of natural instrument Voices. Thanks to acclaimed Super Articulation technology, the distinctive characteristics of each instrument are reproduced in incredible detail as you play.



Dive into the band experience

Featuring a wide array of backing Styles, the CVP Series allows you to enjoy great-sounding performances with polished introductions and endings, delivering authentic accompaniments that will enhance your playing across a diverse range of musical genres. In the CVP-800 Series, these accompaniments come with dramatically improved sounds, enriching your performances.
The CVP-800 Series boasts astonishing spatial acoustics and ensemble functionality so realistic that you can almost feel the presence of the other performers around you.

Voice Guide
