- CP88 is among the lightest and most compact instruments in its class. It weighs just 18.6 kg (41 pounds).
CP88 features three premium concert grand pianos: the Yamaha CFX, Yamaha S700 and the Bösendorfer Imperial 290. These pianos provide full dynamic expression and nuance through meticulous recording and voicing.
[ CFX ] With over 17 years of development, the Yamaha CFX is our flagship 9’ concert grand piano. The CFX offers sparkling highs, powerful bass with incredible dynamic range and the strength to project over a full symphony orchestra.
[ Bösendorfer ] Bösendorfer is unique amongst piano makers as the only manufacturer in the world still utilizing the Viennese handcrafted design tradition. This produces warm bass, singing treble and rich tonal colors known as the “Viennese Sound.” The 9.5’ 8-octave Imperial 290 is the flagship of Bösendorfer grand piano. The extended bass notes resonate with every key you strike, and the massive soundboard supports projection at all frequencies.
[ S700 ] The S700 is a handcrafted acoustic grand piano built by Yamaha master artisans. It has the power to cut through dense arrangements while remaining delicate and expressive in solo and sparse settings. The S700 was one of the most popular grand piano Voices from the S90ES and S90 stage synthesizer.
CP88 features synth sounds for covering any gig or session. Split, layer or solo warm pads, lush strings, deep synth basses, synth leads, brass and more. The one to one CP control interface allows real-time interaction for instant sound creation.
CP88 feature an extensive, integrated effects section for creating your own, unique sound. Each of the three sections (Piano section, Electric piano section and Sub section) features dedicated effects.
There are also master effects with delay, reverb and master EQ with dedicated controls for easy, real-time tweaking.
