CVP 809 Studio Grand voice

Is this voice a Yamaha C7 piano? Because I see there is a C7 on the Genos

There are Bosendorfer and a Yamaha CFX samples on the CVP 809. I suspect the other grand piano voices are not separate samples but modifications of one of these, and probably the CFX.

When writing reviews of previous CVP and CLP pianos (up to 2011 when 'Keyboard Player' Magazine closed), Yamaha did tell me that there were some C7 sounds but not labelled as such. Probably something like 'Rock Piano' or 'Pop Piano' - so long ago that I can't remember. If those sounds are still on board - perhaps in 'Legacy', then they won't be as accurate as the later sounds. Ten years has allowed Yamaha to use much more sample ROM for its best quality sounds.
It's not what you play, it's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.
