The big addition to the Clavinova is touch ballast ... Absolutely wonderful ... To all lovers of piano and really fun to play, the Clavinova is a jewel incomparable ... Everyone will tell you.
On this point, Yamaha remains the REFERENCE all brands! Mrs P90 is far behind, I personally find.
In terms of use, I think the great strength of the CVP 203 and the full range of Yamaha CVP pianos numriques is REALLY the quality of arrangements that can couraging. It's not Cubase but trs honntement the soft internal squence is quite the road.

Possibility of rglage volumes intruders, rglage and DSP effects (and especially backup), the SETTING THE Tone (bright - mellow), vibrato, ADSR of the ...

Personally, faisaint a little trip-hop - downtempo, I waste a lot of the effects of distortion, phaser ... The machine is well shot (with a zero-latency of course) when you push it a little after, the sound begins to saturate at times ... (After 10-12 tracks Boures effects).


When I numrique beginners on piano, I found that really sounds taient canon. In fact, I realize comparing with other expanders latest issue that the CVP 203 (MODEL 2000 remember) may be a bit lightweight on this point l. Some sound a little nasal on winds (sax, trumpets, pianos ...), with garin too Midi, the guitars do not talk about (but hey, it's normal ... the guitars num America, it's never good trs bill).
A big good for drum kits and percussion well that many bananas. It regrets the absence of a latina kit (which is Submitted to the range above).

But ... by modulating its propore sounds, we can do things really standards! On the basis of electro pianos, by changing the attack, rahoutant the reverb a little mello, I made some very cold intruders, although Planat. A real treat! I never do this again with Russi VSTi ...

In basic résumé, the beats are Ingala, but the possibilities are enormous modulations.


Goodies: A lot of great conviviality technical possibilities. Ballast touch of madness!

Cons: not always sounds canon canon.
The price: 2500 €. Today the equivalent is the CVP 204.
Personally, this does nothing to serve in the ranges above (CVP 206 and CVP 208): prices are trs levs for minor technical amliorations.

In short ... a sacred machine, trs enjoyable to play with feelings vritable close to a piano, trs rich.
Personally, if I found a keyboard flask with the same feel and same technical possibilities, + an expander with a little less nasal tone, I would jump on the opportunity ...

Yamaha Clavinova CVP-203
A Yamaha Clavinova CVP series (the best for me).
88 piano keys with a touchdown, three pedals, floppy drive, a nice screen, and pots everywhere! a real plane!
there are about 800 tones and 200 rhythms (4 types, but by then 800 rate!)
connections: 2 headphone jack, auxiliary jack (red and white), MIDI connections (can connect to a pc)


Good touch, has developed the best Yamaha has always (well, ... for me!)
the config is not simple, but the record is very clear, so after a few weeks, you will do everything. In any case: PATIENCE! the possibilities are endless especially with the rhythms and accompaniments.


The piano sounds are very good but not phenomenal! it is never that much better in the South! the rest is good (but no more), the guitars are zero, the batteries very good, need I say more? I put 8 / 10 because 800 sounds convincing to a hundred, we can expect better!


I have since 2002, since prices have fallen and the series evolved, but not that much I think. So rather than buying a digital piano art, I can advise you this one because I really spent wonderful hours on it. you can really do it all! I can not remember the price of the time but it should be about € 3000 (really not sure!). in any case very good value for money! thank you to the creators of this great product!
