Yamaha CSP170 read our review here

The Yamaha CSP170 Smart Piano is an innovative way to immerse yourself in your music, providing the tried and true Clavinova piano platform, and adding a modern twist courtesy of Smart Pianist app integration.

Yamaha CSP170 & Smart Pianist

The Yamaha CSP170 Smart Piano is designed to work in conjunction with Yamaha’s free Smart Pianist app, available for both Android and iOS (check Android compatibility here). Using Smart Pianist, the CSP-170 comes to life, offering a huge array of instrument voices, backings, and even the option to wirelessly playback and accompany songs from your iTunes song library via Bluetooth.

CSP-170 | Stream Lights & Playback

The CSP-170 offers a ‘Stream Lights’ feature, which is a superb facility for learning. During the playback of a song, you can set Stream Lights to illuminate pending notes, allowing you to visually follow the music, and begin to familiarise and orientate yourself with the physical layout of the notes.

The Yamaha CSP170 can be set to slow the tempo of played-back songs to make them easier to follow, and you can even remove left or right-hand parts from the music, so you can focus on chords or melody specifically. Smart Pianist even features a ‘Chord Tracker’ function, which will ‘read’ the music of songs from your iTunes library and convert the music into chords for you to follow on the CSP-170.

The Clavinova CSP Series has received the Red Dot Award : Product Design 2019. The Red Dot Design Award is one of the most highly respected design awards in the world.

Innovation for effortless performance

Clavinova is an innovative lineup of digital pianos that have continued to evolve while seeking to provide the touch and tone of a concert grand piano—the ultimate symbol of piano excellence. This authentic grand piano experience is the product of the knowledge and expertise that Yamaha has accumulated over more than 100 years of crafting acoustic pianos. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology to achieve grand piano quality, the Yamaha CSP170 digital piano offers an inviting playing experience that is perfect for players of all levels. It emulates the touch and tone of a grand piano to make the transition from digital to acoustic piano a seamless and enjoyable one.

With two world-renowned concert grand pianos available at the touch of a button, the CSP-170 lets you choose the perfect piano tone for the music you want to play. Offering far more than just sampled sounds, the CSP Series reproduces the Yamaha CFX concert grand and the legendary Bӧsendorfer Imperial in meticulous detail.

Yamaha CSP170 | Variety is the spice of life

The CSP-170 offers hundreds of high-quality instrument Voices including “Natural!”, “Sweet!” and “Cool!” Voices sampled specially to compliment the instrument types. Yamaha’s Super Articulation Voices (SA) add genuine performance attributes of the real musical instruments as though they were being naturally performed by a virtuoso of that instrument instead of from the keys of a piano keyboard. Examples include “fret noise” or “body knocks” from a guitar or the “inhales”, “exhales” and glissandos from wind instruments. By simply varying your touch and playing techniques or using the pedals, SA voices will add significant authenticity to your sound.

When you want to play more than just piano

One of the defining features of a CSP-170 Clavinova is the multitude of different Styles that can be controlled in real-time by playing chords on the keyboard. Accompaniment Styles introduce ensembles of virtual musicians to your performances in a variety of musical genres. From small jazz ensembles to full orchestras, you control what chords or harmony they play by what you play, plus you control the dynamic of the ensemble. Developed by professional session musicians from around the world, Styles add authentic, studio-quality backing players to your performances – even when you play by yourself.

The Natrual Wood X Keyboard (NWX)

The touch of the CSP-170 keyboard has been praised by pianists for a performance feel that makes you forget you’re playing a digital piano, offering authentic response to the force of your touch and a natural key return. Utilizing the same hammering system and spring-less mechanism as a grand piano, GH3X actions accurately reproduce the touch of an acoustic piano from the heavy feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves.

Connect the CSP-170 wirelessly for Smart Pianist

Smart Pianist App supports not only wired connection but also wireless connection via UD-WL01, Wi-Fi USB wireless LAN adaptor. More info here
