Hit heavy graduated gh (heavier in the bass than treble) nice touch
simple configuration, then to master the gas plant that represents this machine requires mandatory manual 200 pages! (Available on the website of yamaha free).
No problem for MIDI or to connect to pc and cubase.
Manual is good enough to get started by being at the keyboard
Sounds for any style of music from pop to techno really a wide range
sounds very realistic even guitars that are usually hard to reproduce (some guitar too, but still top by working with the effects we arrive at the sth not bad at all.
good effects, an infinite number of possibilities, from supporting pro, everything is programmable.
the piano sounds are highly realistic classical piano piano rock and electronic pianos also awesome! the beautiful tablecloths, the only sounds I do not like these are some guitars (and is also guitarist with a Takamine LTD 98 normal! impossible to recreate the sound of such an instrument!)
I have been 15 days since 1998 but I know the CVP (CVP 92 at the time) I followed the development and evolution is obvious!, The sound generator has nothing to do with that of CVP Series 90.100 and 200, the design was revised and that's good.
So for my part I tried a lot of digital and cvp far outstrip some other brands, now I think it is useless to go over lines for so little more option (the 96 polyphony is more than enough and if you bump on cubase no worries on the horizon) ranges above also have a microphone input with effects of heart on this model we can connect a microphone, and the effects Just a good software to see the same pattern as in-house technology supérieurs.La mega voices new 400 series is not available on this model but I understand that new technology does mega voices into account in the arrangements and accompaniment so you should be able to do the same with appropriate software (check but I think it must not be very complicated) to finish the design is really nice, and I prefer the sliding keyboard cover keyboard covers the who turns to bring up the screen and functions as the CVP 303 and all the following ...
So if you are attracted to the composition and you already have experience in keyboard you will love this model, on the other hand if you have never touched a piano in your life there is no point taking a cvp, a clp will be more than enough for learning as how many listing I see cvp having served a month (probably people who think a machine like this one can become a pianist and composer in one month without learning music theory ...)
value for money: new it's still quite expensive it must be recognized, and used some abuse, so it is best to rely on it to see the year and options for each model http://cvpug .com / srbot / CVP.htm ( http://cvpug.com/srbot/CVP.htm ) if your budget is 750 euros I recommend the cvp 201 which is the rate used (note the odd series 200 (201.203 etc) had a keyboard problem fails then n Do not hesitate to ask the seller if the keyboard has been changed by yamaha) for the 301 I would consider a good opportunity to Euro 1000, do not forget that the nine series are 401 to 1850 euros new and guaranteed for 2 years and that if you negotiate well you can store the assets in 1690 (still negotiating this type of device resellers! because they have a very good margin on it!)
So the choice I would do without hesitation that I am primarily a very good deal! Gold will be said ...
