- This digital piano can have fun even if you're not a pro of music. With different sounds and styles rhythmic, easy to improvise an ox!
The manual is comprehensive and clear. The use is not complicated.
92 The CVP serves me master control for an expander control that I often split mode (a bass line and a melody line and chord). The superposition of the sounds of the two devices gives interesting results. A drum DR 880 increases the possibilities, but the bass drum is not compatible with that of midi CVP. Too bad ...
The heavy touch of the keyboard is very nice. He collects all the fantasies in terms of velocity and polyphonic (32 votes). He agrees to be abused without flinching! Only regret: no aftertouch or pitch bend.
The part on disk sequencer is very handy. She used to "take notes" of my own compositions. I kept a lot of disk on purpose! Its use is childish.
The accompaniment to a finger really intended for beginners. I do not see the point.
A function guide can learn pieces delivered on floppy disks by turning the diodes notes to play. I used very little.
The rhythm styles can play fast. But we eventually get to the end ...
The intros, rhythmic variations, fill-in, fade-in can play complete songs live with a single keystroke.
XG sounds are not practical to select. See below.
- The sounds are decent, but not the richness of the heavyweights of the time, like the Roland JV.
12 basic families of instruments:
- 10 pianos, acceptable for the time
- 14 E. Piano good quality in general
- 9 Vibes
- 14 Guitar
- 15 Clavi.Tone / Synth. A very good pad, for example.
- 13 Organ are some really good road
- 15 Strings / Choir quality "synthetic"
- 15 Brass
- 15 Sax / Flute. A good tenor sax
- 13 Bass lacking power for my taste
- 12 Drums
+ 480 XG sounds are difficult to access: search by wheel! One solution: the memoirs of registrations, which allow you to save 20 settings (only).
The sounds are not editable. This is not the purpose of this instrument.
The quality of the rhythm is good enough to play complex and realistic way of music styles.
- Overall Opinion
- I use the CVP 92 since 1999. He never let go. It is very suitable for those who want to move quickly and having fun. A good tool for approval very effective for services "live". See you in against limited in the styles of rhythm and sound. The expressive possibilities of the keyboard (aftertouch, pitch bend) starved to go further. It is indeed an instrument of leisure.
- ~ Keyboard:
-88 Keys, the feel of this keyboard is all done properly, I do not know what "GH" (Graded Hammer) it is, but it's hit-heavy, for sure.
A total of 620. I do not count here the beasts rhythms.
More precision in "sound".
AUX-in 2 mono jacks L and R. What connect 2 sources, including basic microphone singing, guitar and bass ...
IN-OUT in 2 mono jacks L and R. To return the whole table / supplmentaires pregnant.
-MIDI IN and OUT. I use it all the time to work on Cubase!
HOST-TO (1 plug / button 4 positions: MAC, PC-1, PC-2; MIDI). I have no idea of the use of this jack ... Would it be vintage?
No hold-supplmentaire pedal, 3 pedals (functions identical to those of a grand piano) are dj l.
- Gnrale configuration is super simple, "will be t my first (and only) electric keyboard for a long time, I've never had a problem understanding how that the machine worked!
MIDI operation is simple, as given that there is no possibility of the use of USB keyboard, the MIDI signal is always sent by the famous decision.
But before Cubase and all the gear for home studio, how fesais I register?
Long live the FLOPPY! Yep, those old things which nobody uses, or almost ... THE WRITING midi files on diskette drive thanks to intgr has served me a lot. For the compounds rcouter I rinsrais the disk in the SVC-92 and he sent me the sound exactly as I had played EXCEPT rglages the virtual mix table (str o and volume).

XG-| 475 (which includes all types of sounds, and for example, there is a sound of E. Piano which I use very often that is not in the family E. Piano. I guess "XG" are sounds very own Yamaha ...)
The sounds do not seem ditables, not a synth at the same time ^ ^
Answers to direct and nickel for polyphonic VLOC not worry, it is sufficient even when a chord of 10 notes followed by a long sentence.
No aftertouch (Normally I do not know what type of keyboard that is!)
On average, I find it sounds good.
~ THE REVERB! Number 16:
HALL1, HALL2, HALL3, HALL4, HALL5,
ROOM1, ROOM2, room3, room4,
Stage1, stage2, stage3,

We can use both 1 + 1 REVERB EFFECT.
~ The beasts rhythms, whose families are:
POP 16BEAT, DANCE POP, ROCK, BALLAD, JAZZ, BALL-ROOM, LATIN POP, TRADITIONAL, COUNTRY, WALTZ, CUSTOM DISK (Me).
I have not used the evil beasts rhythms, which often AVRES useful! But my taste, very few I like. From
- Overall Opinion
- Manir Gnrale, it seems that there remains no doc on this keyboard on the net (I did a lot of research!), EXCEPT the official site Yamaha amricain archives. (Google me ready in a hand performer "Yamaha music archives!)
I come from elsewhere to make a turn, sending it by yourself either, there are all precision data:
I was given this keyboard around 2001, I am normment served, even having an upright piano ct ^ ^ It's this little prs PERIOD I started not being able to pass elec piano sounds (I was 9 pins).
Currently, I use it always, it is in very good condition.
And evidently, given the age of the equipment, test before purchase!
