Graded Hammer (GH) Keyboard
Just as on an actual grand piano, the lower keys are heavy in touch and the higher keys are light, with all the natural gradations in between.
Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) 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. AWM Stereo Sampling creates a more spacious, deeper, and richer sound by using a pair of waveforms (L and R), obtained via a stereo recording process.
These rich and luscious Voices are comprised mostly of keyboard instrument sounds and are especially intended for playing piano and other keyboard parts.
Live!, Cool! and Sweet! Voices
A huge palette of acoustic and electronically amplified instrument sounds. A blend of long, stereo and multi-layered samples is used to fully capture the natural presence, resonance, expression and vibrato of the real instrument.
16-track song recorder
Use the built-in song recorder with up to 16 tracks to create complex, multi-part arrangements one instrument at a time. After recording, save to the internal memory, which retains data even when the power is switched off, on a storage device, or to a PC.
The key guide lamps indicate the notes you should play, when you should play them, and how long you should hold them down. You can also practice at your own pace – since the accompaniment waits for you to play the notes correctly. Here, mute the right- or heft-hand part and try practicing the part using the guide lamps.
Piano Reset Button
This convenient, easy-to-use feature completely and automatically reconfigures the entire CVP for optimum piano performance. No matter what settings you’ve made from the panel, you can instantly call up the piano settings by a single button press.
