Like all of the Clavinova line, the CLP-685 starts with great sound. At its heart are meticulously sampled Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial pianos along with Yamaha’s GrandTouch Keyboard action, the most advanced digital piano action Yamaha has ever made. It reproduces the touch, feel and dynamic range of a concert grand better than ever. Linear Graded Hammers make for the smoothest playing experience by giving each key a unique weight.
In addition to this detailed sampling and physical attributes of the key and its travel, the CLP-685 also has Key counterweights that are used to adjust key balance, allowing delicate pianissimo from anywhere on the key. The GP Response Damper Pedal offers a grand piano-style resistance curve, starting out light and growing heavier as the pedal is depressed to emulate the nuances of delicate pedaling.
Binaural CFX sampling technology makes playing with headphones an immersive experience in that it recreates the perspective of the player’s position through a set of headphones. Now with Key-Off samples as well as Damper and String Resonance samples, the CLP series has never sounded better. Connect to your iOS device or your computer using the USB port to experience entertainment and educational apps. USB audio recording and playback captures or plays back performances on a USB drive. It features Bluetooth audio that allows you to connect your music player wirelessly to your Clavinova so you can play along with your favorite songs.
Binaural CFX Sampling technology delivers a three-dimensional sound that creates the perspective of the player position through headphones. Key-off samples deliver the delicate change in sound the instant the damper falls back to the string, and String Resonance recreates the sympathetic sounds of other strings resonating, emulating to a fine detail the behavior of acoustic pianos.
Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) allows for vivid and varied expression that reflects the many factors contributing to the sound of a concert grand piano. Damper Resonance DSP recreates the sound of the inside of a grand piano when the dampers are off the strings. The combined effect of all of these nuances of the piano samples creates a satisfying musical experience.
A Tri-Amped audio system reproduces all sound ranges more beautifully and clearly, by utilizing dedicated amplifiers to drive three separate speaker systems for three independent frequency ranges. Spruce speaker cones use are made from pulp of the same wood Yamaha uses to make piano sound boards. The result is a more natural, piano-like attack to the sound that is more piano-like when you play the keys.
The CLP-685 includes drum rhythms that are fun to practice and perform with. A 1/8 in. AUX input takes output from a portable music player, iOS device, mixer or computer, and uses the instrument's speakers to play back the audio. An on-board, 16-track recorder allows you to create your own songs using multiple sounds for simultaneous playback.
As the flagship model in the series, the CLP-685 boasts a GrandTouch Keyboard action that features the individual key counter weights found in a grand piano for unrivaled realism in the resistance and return of each key. CFX and Bösendorfer samples absolutely sing through the powerful 300W sound system with Spruce Cone speakers. Spruce wood is used in the soundboards of Yamaha acoustic pianos because of its superior tone quality, and that same wood is used in the CLP-685 speaker cones. You will lose yourself in the sound of the binaurally sampled CFX, a totally immersive headphone experience. Selecting Voices and adjusting settings is easy using the intuitive user LCD interface.
