Yamaha C1XTA2 TransAcoustic
Superb balance and rich tone. Every inch of the compact CX Series instruments exudes Yamaha's passion for the ideal piano. The TransAcoustic system offers the best of acoustic and digital - a piano that can be played either acoustically, using the soundboard to naturally amplify digital sounds or silently through headphones!
Yamaha TransAcoustic is unlike any piano you've ever heard. A true acoustic piano that uses its soundboard to naturally amplify digital sounds, turning your instrument into the world's most incredible acoustic speaker. Transform your acoustic piano into a Yamaha or Bösendorfer concert grand, an electric piano, harpsicord, organ and more. Then record a track and play along on your acoustic piano. TransAcoustic stretches the imagination and opens up a new world of possibilities.
The soundboard is your amplifier
|When a hammer strikes a string, all elements of the acoustic piano resonate together to amplify the unique sound of the instrument. TransAcoustic Technology uses these acoustic elements to bring digital sounds to life, allowing you to adjust the volume and experience the piano in a whole new way.
Let there be light transducers
|We created a state-of-the-art, ultra-light transducer that can turn digital sounds into vibrations and apply them directly to the soundboard. All without sacrificing the remarkable acoustic tone you’ve come to expect from a Yamaha piano.
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.
A concert hall in your headphones
|By day it’s a world-renowned acoustic piano. By night, the neighbors won’t hear a thing. SILENT Piano™ puts the sound and presence of the world’s finest concert grands in your headphones. Simply switch TransAcoustic piano into SILENT mode and our digital technology reproduces the acoustic tones, nuanced colors and resonance so faithfully you’ll almost forget you’re wearing headphones.
Pure, natural sound
When in SILENT mode, 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.
Play well with others
|It’s easy to connect TransAcoustic with your audio and MIDI devices for recording, live sound or broadcast and it works seamlessly with computers, mixing boards and Bluetooth®-enabled devices.
