Features


 

Every nuance, every note


Yamaha's patented non-contact Optical Sensor System continuously measures the movement, timing, depth and force of every key attack and release to faithfully capture and reproduce the subtle nuances of your performance.

Pure natural sound


Three proprietary technologies work together to emulate the natural feeling and sound of an acoustic piano in your headphones. Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) recreates the resonance of the strings, soundboard and case. Our advanced binaural sampling method simulates the sound you hear when sitting at the piano. Smooth Release Technology models the subtle interactions of the piano strings with the damper.

Find your voice


The world-renowned Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial concert grands are two of many digital voices available in your headphones including electric pianos, harpsichords, organs, strings, choir and synth pad.

 


Born to be silent


Each Yamaha SILENT Piano is conceived, designed and built from the ground up, fashioned by Yamaha master craftsmen in the same factory using the same time-honored, traditional methods as our acoustic pianos.

Connect with your smart devices


Choose voices, record your performances, display a score and more. The Yamaha Smart Pianist App works intuitively with your smartphone or tablet.

 


Play well with others

It’s easy to connect SILENT Piano with your audio and MIDI devices for recording, live sound or broadcast and it works seamlessly with computers, mixing boards and Bluetooth®-enabled devices.
