Product Description

Newly Developed Articulation Sensor System

This newly developed Articulation Sensor System accurately and wirelessly interprets the musicians keystrokes to reproduce the music as if they were playing an acoustic instrument. Yamaha’s new proprietary algorithm delivers precision simulations in the pianist dynamic range, producing a digital tone as if the player was on an acoustic instrument.

Quick Escapement System

Quick Escapement System for silent piano

The Quick Escapement Jack is on every Yamaha Sh3 & TA3 Baby Grand and Grand Piano.  This special Jack allows the hammer to feel like it is being thrown right when the silent bar is activated.  When the Silent bar is not activated the piano uses the first ridge in the Jack for normal play.

Yamaha Smart Pianist App

SILENT pianos are equipped with Bluetooth® MIDI. Download the Smart Pianist app on your smart device and connect wirelessly to your SILENT Piano™ to enjoy simple, intuitive control of your instrument’s features.  You can connect to a number of different apps through Wireless Midi

Grand Expression Modeling

digital grand expression modeling

Grand Expression Modelling is a new feature that faithfully reproduces the tonal variation originating from the inner workings of the piano, such as the way the hammers strike and the dampers contact the strings in response to the player’s touch. This feature detects the force and acceleration of the keystrokes and changes the audio output accordingly in real time, providing the player with the ability to explore subtle tonal nuances.


Virtual Resonance Modeling

Virtual Resonance Modeling

One of the great allures of the grand piano is the sympathetic resonance created by the vibration of the entire instrument. Yamaha’s further advanced Virtual Resonance Modeling technology elaborately reproduces this rich sympathetic resonance*. This technology makes it possible to create richly varied tones by adding sympathetic tones that correspond to the timing and intensity of keystrokes and pedaling to the complex, varied sympathetic tones created when the vibrations of the strings are propagated to other strings and the soundboard. Virtual Resonance Modeling even replicates the sounds the dampers make when they are lifted off the strings, along with the resonance of the aliquot stringing, strings, soundboard, and case. Experience the deep, dynamic resonance that originates from the case of the piano.


New Top Shelf Samples

Introducing two newly sampled concert grand piano voices from Yamaha and Bösendorfer, both popular choices in concert halls around the world. First is the CFX, Yamaha’s flagship concert grand piano, which has earned high acclaim among the world’s most renowned pianists for its robust, resplendent, richly expressive tone. Second is the Imperial from Bösendorfer, a time-honored Viennese piano brand with a passionate following. The Imperial is known for its abundance of color and natural, warm feeling. Yamaha faithfully reproduces the unique characteristics of these concert grand pianos by carefully recording the entire tonal range of each of the 88 keys, making minute adjustments to capture the most harmonious tones each piano has to offer. These two world-renowned concert grand pianos are joined by a long list of other voices, including Electric Piano, Harpsichord, and Organ.


Bianural Sampling  – CFX & Bösendorfer

Binaural sampling creates the ambience and full, natural resonance of acoustic pianos*, making pianists feel as though they are sitting at a grand piano. Binaural sampling is a method of sampling in which special microphones are placed on a mannequin’s head in the same positions as the pianist’s ears to capture piano sounds the way that they are experienced in reality. Sounds based on binaural sampling deliver an experience so natural that pianists forget they are wearing headphones, no matter how long they continue to play. On these pianos, binaural sampling was used for the Bösendorfer Imperial as well as the Yamaha CFX.
