Modartt Yamaha CP-80

Modartt has released the Yamaha CP-80 add-on for Pianoteq, a Christmas gift to all registered customers.

The Yamaha CP-80 is an electro-acoustic grand piano. It was a very popular stage piano at the time (1976-1985) with a unique sound and with an authentic grand piano action. It was marketed by Yamaha as a touring friendly and electronically amplified variant of a grand piano. It was famous for its rock solid quality and considered by many as the “Rolls Royce” of the electro-acoustic pianos.

The Pianoteq add-on offers two versions of the CP-80:

  1. “CP-80 original” which is an attempt to be as close as possible to the original recorded instrument.
  2. “CP-80 restored” which is an attempt to provide a “virtual restoration” of the instrument, renewing particularly the wounded strings which lacked the brilliance from.

    I used to tune this model for a customer on a regular basis. Strings very short, thick and highly inharmonic. Interesting contraption.
