The Yamaha CLP-685 is the flagship Clavinova digital piano in the 600 series. When you first put your fingers on the keys, you’ll immediately feel the quality and grip of the synthetic ivory white keys and the new synthetic ebony black keys. Each key features the longest keys of any digital piano to date and individual counterweights as part of Yamaha’s GrandTouch keyboard action, mimicking the feel and responsiveness of a concert grand piano. The streamlined navigation panel makes it easy to select the Yamaha CFX concert grand or Bösendorfer Imperial Grand sample sounds, and the 300 watt speakers provide incredible power and richness of tone due to their construction out of the same spruce material used to make acoustic piano soundboards.
With headphones, you’ll experience an immersive 3D binaural sound that makes it hard to believe you’re using headphones – you can feel the physical space where the piano was recorded, making silent practicing an absolute joy. And with the Bluetooth audio features, you can wirelessly connect to smartphones and tablets and have their sounds play through the CLP-685’s amazing speakers. Several Yamaha apps take advantage of this capability to help you learn to play the piano and have fun hearing an entire backup band and vocals in the process! The featured app in this video demo is NoteStar. Other great features include an onboard 16-track recorder, hundreds of instrument voices and sound effects, and built-in rhythm patterns that are a great alternative to the standard metronome (also included). Come experience the most advanced CLP-series Clavinova to date!
