Your dream Piano studio:

The Session Mode allows you to invite three virtual musicians into the room to ‘jam’ along with you as you perform and practice in one of 40 different musical styles. These session musicians have been designed to automatically follow your harmonies and your volume expression using the new Dynamics Control feature. You can selectively activate and deactivate each one depending on your musical needs. In the Session Mode you can also record your sessions with the touch of a single button.
Hundreds of realistic voices:
The CVP701 includes hundreds of high-quality instrument Voices including "Natural!", "Sweet!" and "Cool!" Voices sampled especially to compliment the instrument types. Yamaha's Super Articulation Voices (SA) add genuine performance attributes of the real musical instruments for Voices that sound as though they are being naturally performed by a virtuoso of that instrument instead of from the keys of a Piano keyboard.
More than just a Piano:
One of the CVP Clavinova’s defining features is the multitude of different Styles that can be controlled in real-time by playing chords on the keyboard. Accompaniment Styles introduce ensembles of virtual musicians to your performances in a variety of musical genres. From small jazz groups to full orchestras, you control what chords or harmony they play by what you play, plus you control the dynamic of the ensemble. These styles have been specially developed by professional session musicians from around the world to add authentic, studio-quality backing players to your performances - even when you play by yourself. You can use Styles to add embellishing Intros, Endings & Fill-Ins and even arrange songs in real-time. Only Yamaha could build an instrument with studio-quality effects like reverb, echo and even Vocal Harmony.
