The Yamaha CLP-745 Digital Piano, A Piano plus so much more…
The Yamaha CLP-745 Digital Piano is the second model in the CLP Clavinova Series. This instrument is first and foremost a dedicated piano.
The Piano Action
GrandTouch-S Wooden Key Digital Piano Action
Eighty Eight individually weighted and graded keys with the New Yamaha GrandTouch – S Digital Piano Action gives the piano player a seamless playing experience. Synthetic key tops are on every Natural and Sharp key to give a concert quality tactile feel to the pianos action. The Artist can feel the music with the addition of the solid wood key shank as it reverberates like a real piano key!
Towards the end of the keystroke you will feel the key “Let off” or the Escapement. This is done to mimic an acoustic piano action when the hammer is released from the players control before it strikes the string to prevent damage to the piano action mechanism.
Grand Expression Modeling – New
When a piano player talks about the touch of a piano they are not referring to the weight or the feel specifically. The Touch is the control the player has of the dynamics of the instrument while they are performing.
On an Acoustic piano If you press the keys down fast with force the strings should ring with a brilliance and a powerful attack. Whereas a slow and soft strike will produce a quiet tone that is mellow with warmth. Yamaha has used their years of experience in acoustic pianos to bring this expanded feature to the Yamaha CLP-745 Digital Piano.
Binaural Piano Samples – A Head Phone Experience
The CLP-700 series features two Binaural piano samples of the Yamaha CFX 9′ Concert Grand Piano and the timeless Bösendorfer Imperial Grand Piano. These 2 new and amazing piano samples are automatically activated when a pair of head phones are plugged into the Clavinova.
This Technology is achieved by Sampling the piano with the microphones placed in correlation to the ears of a human being. When the Piano player has the headphones on they feel as if they are siting in front of a 9 foot concert grand.

Virtual Resonance Modeling
A grand piano is a living, breathing instrument due to sympathetic resonance. When you strike a key you feel the vibration as it moves through the body of the piano. Resonance is created along the Dampers, Strings, The Duplex scaling and the cabinet/ body of the instrument. This is what gives a grand piano the celebrated nuances and the emotional depth of sound. The Clavinova has recreated this experience by using speakers and the inside cabinet of the CLP.
