Regarding Yamaha Clavinova CSP-170

Post by havkayak » Sat Jan 20, 2018 4:23 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm new to MIDI, and I hope I will get some answers here. I'm about to buy a digital piano (Yamaha Clavinova CSP-170). It has a synth module inside, but I've not been able to understand if it is possible to play simultanious on several timbres (playing drums, bass, piano, synth-pads etc at once) - while composing music in Cubase LT 9. I downloaded the manual and it says that it is GM2, XG, GS and XF-compatible, if that should explain anything in this matter. The people in the shop selling the piano did not know either, so that's why I ask here. Probably this is a simple question to answer, but as I've allready said, I'm absolutely new to this. And I for sure must know before I buy the piano.

I will be happy for any answers.

Roy

Hi Roy!
I use also a CSP-170 to play midifiles and lightning keys. I dont know what you exactly mean with play simultanious timbres.

I write my midis using Mixmaster for SysEx-Coding and Cubase Elements 10 for all other To play on the clavi I use a iPad pro and be very happy about doing as a beginner on Keyboard-Playing.

To set the Voices I have build up the CSP-170 as a MIDI-Instrument using my File "Yamaha CSP-170.txt" beeing attached.
Please rename to Yamaha CSP-170.txt before using.

Inside are all Voices from the instrument as in the manual. A lot of work, but doing great.

I hope this is helpfull for you.
Sorry about my bad english.
Harald

Hi Harald,

I have also been using a CSP-170 for a few weeks and have read your comments with interest. Which Mixmaster do you use? The one by Michael P. Bedesem and Etienne Volbragt (v19r1)?

I would be very interested in your file Yamaha CSP-170.txt. How is it structured and what information from the data list was used?

It would be nice to know something about it
Best wishes
