"Real Grand Expression"-tone, touch, pedal-perfectly presents the sense of playing a grand piano
The term "Real Grand Expression" defines the expressive capabilities of Clavinova's digital pianos. It not only fully embodies the timbre, touch keys and pedals of the grand piano, but also ingeniously combines the traditional piano making process with these three elements. Through the way you touch the keys and pedal, the sound you want to express is fully presented, giving you a grand piano-like playing experience.
Fine and delicate sound
Hear the sound like playing live
The sound of the grand piano is sampled from Yamaha's top grand piano CFIIIS. A senior piano tuner will select a piano that is most suitable for recording samples and tune him to the best condition. And pay attention to each of the most subtle details during recording, creating a perfect and harmonious piano sound.
Smooth pitch change performance perfectly combined with keyboard playing
Sound processing that changes according to the expression of playing
By changing the way the keys are touched, the player can freely express subtle changes in the volume of playing, the strength of the piano tone, and the softness and brightness of the pitch.
The CLP-525 perfectly reproduces the piano sound with rich details through careful sampling of each piano sound over a long period of time. Together with Yamaha's unique technology, it can perfectly and sensitively respond to the pitch changes of the player's playing.
From staccato to sleek, it fully reflects the player's sensitive and outstanding performance.
Coupled with Yamaha's smooth tone release technology, Clavinova can extend a crisp tone when playing staccato. Respond to the performer's delicate playing expressions.

256 maximum number of voices
The increase in the number of sounds can prevent some notes from being missed due to insufficient number of sounds when a large number of notes are played at the same time.
First-class playing experience
GH3 (Graded Hammer 3) gradient keyboard
In addition to having a percussion system like a grand piano and a springless device, it is also equipped with a GH3 gradient keyboard to reproduce the touch of a real piano with heavier keys in the low range and lighter keys in the high range. At the same time, there are three built-in sensing systems, which can accurately sense the delicate sound changes that the performer wants to present, which is very similar to the touch of playing a grand piano.
The surface treatment of the imitated ivory keyboard can maintain the sensitive touch after playing for a long time.
The elegant ivory keyboard allows people to enjoy the touch of the keys close to the fingers like a top grand piano. At the same time, the soft and breathable surface of the keyboard increases the grip and friction when playing the keyboard, which can avoid the dilemma of slippery hands caused by sweaty hands during long-time playing or practice, making it easier to play.
Keyboard strengthening stabilization device-Yamaha's unique keyboard technology further improves the stability and durability of the keyboard
The keyboard plays an extremely important role in expressing subtle emotions in performance. In order to maintain the sensitive touch of playing for a long time, a comfortable playing feel is necessary. Yamaha is equipped with keyboard reinforcement stabilization devices on all 88-key keyboards, providing players with a natural and realistic touch and improving the stability and durability of the keyboard.
Even the last part of the keys still presents a natural and true touch
The construction of the CLP-525 keyboard is to take the entire keyboard support point in the body of the instrument as far away as possible from the top of the keys. This design improves the performance and comfort of playing.
This device provides a very good keyboard movement dynamics, even if the main position of the performance is at the back of the black or white keys, it can show a rich performance expression according to your delicate playing dynamics, and further expand the performance. The range of strength.
The touch keys of the Clavinova keyboard are designed to be far away from the supporting points, so that the keys can be pressed smoothly when playing the keys close to the body.
Excellent sound technology
The overall resonance system is like a traditional piano
Just like a traditional piano, in order to ensure the best state of the Clavinova resonance design, the speaker positioning and piano body material have been fully confirmed under the delicate calibration. In order to bring the sound closer to the real grand piano, the tonal escapement of the musical instrument is designed so that the sound can be transmitted to the listener's ears without being restricted by the body of the musical instrument.
Sound optimization system-to ensure a balanced tone
CLP-525 is equipped with a sound optimization system that can adjust the sound flow and tone control.
The new sound optimization technology comes from the research and development of Yamaha's proficiency in traditional musical instruments all the way. This feature enables digital pianos to deliver natural, smooth and rich sounds.
Built-in music recording
The recording function of CLP-525 allows you to view your performance at any time by recording your own performance with a simple button. In addition, you can record up to two tracks of parts and then play them at the same time. In other words, you can record left and right hand performances separately, or add different voice parts.
The recording file format will be saved as Standard MIDI file (SMF). If you install compatible software on your computer, you will be able to play back your recorded performance files.
"IAC Smart Audio Control" is suitable for playing at home.
When playing at home, you can’t always play at a high volume, so the ability to adjust the volume becomes quite practical. Usually, when you turn down the volume, you will find it difficult to hear the treble and bass. But the CLP-525 equipped with IAC Intelligent Audio Control (IAC) can automatically adjust the sound, so that you can enjoy the correct sound balance at any volume setting.
The musical instrument APP application expands your musical horizons.
