Why Choose a Silent Piano?
There will be times at home when the deep resonant sound of an acoustic piano is not always appreciated. You might find you are disturbing a neighbour or family member or just simply worried about being listened to as you practice a new piece of music. This is where a silent piano is the perfect instrument to choose. Firstly you have the beautiful sound and touch of a real acoustic piano to enjoy when you can. Then simply plug in a set of headphones and switch to silent mode and you can keep on playing, listening to a beautiful top of the range digital piano sample. Early mornings, late nights or family watching TV all become a thing of the past with the ability to practice in silence. This is without doubt the best of both worlds.
Here is how does it all works
CFX Binaural Sampling
For the first time ever the Silent Piano™ offers sound sampled from the Yamaha CFX full concert grand piano, supporting the beauty of its clear, vivid tones with the power of this renowned instrument. Yamaha’s first model with binaural sampling system, enabling reproduction of natural and three-dimensional sound[ Binaural sampling system ]. This is a recording system that uses microphones placed in a dummies ears. This technique allows the sound to be reproduced the way it would naturally occur as if you were sitting at the piano. When playing in “Silent” mode, the player feels as though the CFX sounds are coming directly from the piano.
Large capacity (256MB) of wave memory
- Four types of piano effects for reproducing sounds that are characteristic of acoustic performance
- String resonance: This happens when the hammer as struck the strings and the strings then resonate with other strings, reproducing the expressive tonal colours of a real acoustic piano.
- Key-off sampling: Reproduces the subtle changes of sound that occur when the damper touches the strings.
- Sustain sampling: By pressing a pedal during the performance, you create a lot of rich tones. All this detail is recorded.
- Damper resonance: When you press down on the pedal, you will hear deep and expansive resonance occurring. Subtle changes in nuance that occur during your performance can be reproduced faithfully.
Metronome fitted to SH System
19 Instrumental sounds
Two recording systems (Built-in recorder and USB audio recorder)
You can record your performance in two different ways. Firstly you can record the performance onto the the built in recorder or secondly onto USB. By recording your performance as a WAV file onto a USB flash memory, you can then play it back on a PC. Using a built-in recorder is more convenient if you wish to listen to the recorded piece right away. This allows you to listen to the entire performance of a music piece or to go back and listen to a particular section of the piece. The Built in USB audio recorder can save your performance in WAV format. Therefore you can record onto CDs or play them on portable music players.
Equipped with AUX and MIDI terminals
AUX and MIDI terminals allow the sound to be output to a variety of external devices (e.g. stereo components, IC recorders, speakers with built-in amplifiers, stereo systems).Connecting SH type pianos to external devices such as sound source modules and music players (CD players etc.) via AUX IN terminals allows players to listen to the sound from these external devices on the headphones while they play the piano.Connecting MIDI devices such as synthesizers to SH type pianos via MIDI OUTPUT terminals allows players to transmit performance information to external devices for playback.Connecting music sequencers to SH type pianos via MIDI IN terminals allows the players to receive and play back the performance information provided by the sequencers using the sound source of SH type pianos.
