SILENT PIANO FEATURES
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 your Yamaha acoustic 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.
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. Yamaha's 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.
Connects 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.
Plays 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.
Josh Gratton - Piano Department Manager
What I have noticed from families, schools, churches, and individuals who end up going with a Silent is that Yamaha's Silent technology really gives the best of both worlds if you are serious about studying or enjoying piano. You get the nuance of an acoustic traditional Yamaha piano with the flexibility of playing the piano with headphones and never having to sacrifice the feel of the action. Every customer of mine has been very happy with their silent piano.
