Hi, I just wanted to get a feel for what customisations clavinova users have chosen and why. I find myself constantly tinkering to try get the best sound, so wanted to get a more rounded opinion of what changes others have made! It can be a bit frustrating doing this as opposed to having a fixed setting on a proper acoustic, but it’s normal with the endless options that come with a digital piano. Thanks in advance

I presume you are talking about current generation of Clavinovas (600 series), so here are the settings I use: all 4 resonances to 8 (though I'm still not sure about damper one - will probably drop it down to 7 or 6), and if I'm going to record my performance, I'm also enabling reverb type - Chamber and Reverb depth - 50 (this may seem too much when you are playing, but when you record yourself on USB stick, it feels like there are significantly less reverb on a recording, so you need to set this value a bit higher). Everything else on default.
I didn't discover these settings on my own, I got them from from a Reddit user whose recording I really liked - sound-wise and overall. He shared them with me and after some testing and comparing I decided that I like them more than default settings.

Thanks, this is interesting. I’m not keen on over-resonances so don’t tend to set those higher. I’m not really a fan of the record function as I never feel it captures the actual way it’s being heard when you’re playing. I was referring to any clavinova although am new to them so I don’t know how the settings differ between generations.

Can't say anything about older Clavs, but 500 series and 600 series are very different in terms of sound and settings, that's why I specifically stated generation. Resonances are raised because on default values sound on 600 series is too dry in my opinion, raising resonances a bit makes sound richer and more pleasant.
