The sound of the Finest Concert Grand Pianos – The CLP-685 reproduces Yamaha’s legendary 9’ CFX concert grand and the legendary Bösendorfer Imperial in meticulous detail.
GrandTouch Keyboard – Clavinova’s GrandTouch Keyboard simulates the realism and resistance of a grand piano. While grand pianos have a light touch when played gently and a heavier touch when played with more strength, most digital pianos have uniform resistance regardless of how the keys are played. Clavinova’s GrandTouch Keyboard simulates true key resistance, offering a more responsive touch and a greater dynamic range than ever before.
Spruce Cone Speaker – Spruce wood is the wood of choice for soundboards of Yamaha’s premier grand pianos. This same wood is used for the Yamaha CLP-685 speaker cones for a deep, rich sound.
Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) – In an acoustic grand piano, the sound resonates through the soundboard, creating deep, rich reverberations. To simulate this reverberation, Yamaha developed Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) which calculates string state, timing and depth of damper pedals, aliquot resonance in the upper octaves, and full resonance of the soundboard, rim, and frame. These calculations contribute to a more vivid and richer voice that helps the sound of the Yamaha CLP-685 digital piano sound even more realistic than ever.
