The Technology Behind the Silent Piano

Yamaha’s Patented Gray Scale Sensor

The secret to a great piano is in the nuances.  All Yamaha Silent Series pianos utilize a non-contact optical sensor system that conttinuously measure the nimble movements if you fingers and the detailed nuances of your pedaling.  This in house Patented technology delivers unrivaled accuracy and performance with out ever changing the feel of a traditional acoustic piano.

Binaural Sampling

When Playing the Yamaha CFX Concert Grand Piano with headphones the piano player is hearing a Binaural Sample.  Which is an exacting sampling technique that mimics the interaural characteristics of the human ear,  This unique approach allows SILENT pianos to recreate the natural, all encompassing sound only experienced when seated in front of a concert grand piano.

Patented Quick Escape System

Grand piano with SILENT Piano SC2 and SH2type features a quick escape system that allows the sound muting mechanism to be fitted to a grand piano without sacrificing any of the playability or musical expression demanded of such instruments in an acoustic performance. This system allows optimal separation to be obtained between the hammers and strings by adjusting the distance between the hammers and strings, ensuring that the feel of the keyboard stays in the best possible condition whether playing acoustically or with the sound muted.

Smart Pianist App Integration

The smart device app “Smart Pianist” (available as a free download) enables you to use the functions such as selecting Voices, controlling the metronome intuitively with the visualized interface, or display the score on your smart device.

The UD-WL01 USB Wireless LAN Adaptor (sold separately) is required to use Smart Pianist over a wireless connection.

Factory Installed for a Reason.

Yamaha Silent Pianos are available for sale as a new piano only.  This system cannot be retrofitted to a piano for a number of painstaking reasons.  When you purchase a Yamaha SILENT Piano you can be reassured that you own one of the very best Acouctic/Digital Pianos on the Market.
