Features


 

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.
