TransAcoustic™ Piano

TransAcoustic™ pianos are authentic acoustic pianos with a volume adjustment feature, courtesy of Yamaha’s cutting-edge technology. Although you can also play in silence using headphones, the TransAcoustic™ Mode gives you the power to regulate your piano’s volume, enabling you to play without causing disturbance. You can experience the complete physical sensation of natural acoustic sound even at low volumes, thanks to the vibrating soundboard.

TransAcoustic™ technology

Newly developed TransAcoustic™ technology transmits digital sound directly to the piano soundboard, thus making the piano itself behave as a speaker. On a TransAcoustic™ piano, the sound that you hear is resonating directly from the soundboard. The tone generator sends an optimized audio signal to transducers that are connected by a coil to the soundboard. This sets the coils in motion, causing the soundboard to vibrate and generate sonic vibrations that travel through bridges attached to the soundboard, and are ultimately transmitted to the strings, making them resonate with sound.


Play piano at any volume

There are times when the full sound of an acoustic piano may not be appreciated by your family or neighbors. For these situations, simply activate the TransAcoustic™ mode and the hammers will no longer strike the strings. Non-contact sensors under each individual key detect your keystroke depth, velocity and timing and send this information to the tone generator. Just adjust the volume and hear the digital sound of your piano performance coming from the entire instrument. Naturally, there is no need for headphones or external amplification.


Two World-Renowned Piano Sounds

You can play TransAcoustic™ TA3 type with the voices of CFX, Yamaha’s finest concert grand piano, and Bösendorfer’s legendary Imperial. All 88 keys are sampled individually. As Yamaha’s flagship grand piano, the majestic CFX boasts a wide palette of tonal colors, from sparkling high notes to powerful bass tones. The legendary Bösendorfer, meanwhile, is renowned for its sonorous and rich Viennese sound.


A broad sonic palette

TransAcoustic™ TA3 type offers total 20 pre-installed sounds such as electric pianos, harpsichord, organs, strings, choir, and synth pad, allowing you to select the ideal voice to match your preferred musical genre.

Combine acoustic and digital sound

Thanks to their unique construction, TransAcoustic™ TA3 type allow you to layer the natural, resonant sound of the acoustic piano together with voices from the tone generator. Perhaps the most scintillating sounds are created by combining the acoustic and digital properties of the instrument—for example, gentle orchestral strings seemingly played from an acoustic piano—to achieve sonic textures with a natural quality not found on any other instrument.

Play-along to music

Enjoy playing along with any of the 50 preset songs that come with TransAcoustic™ TA3 type, accompanying your playing with songs you have recorded yourself, or even with commercially available songs played back through the sound board. You can play a duet with yourself, or you can just sit back and listen to the playback.

Featuring SILENT Piano™ SH3

Yamaha’s SILENT Piano™ SH2 technology allows practice sessions to be conducted with headphones. Yamaha’s SILENT Piano™ SH3 technology also features a superb binaural sample from the Yamaha CFX concert grand piano recorded using special techniques to perfectly capture the sound from the player’s natural listening position. These two technologies combine to create the perfect environment to play without disturbing others.


CFX Binaural Sampling *Only for SILENT Piano™ mode

Yamaha’s advanced binaural sampling technology uses samples from the CFX, Yamaha’s acclaimed concert grand piano, recorded with specialized microphones that capture locational information and other nuances discerned by the human ear. The resulting sound is so natural, so enveloping, that you’ll soon forget you’re even wearing headphones at all.


 

VRM physical modeling-—the distinctive reverberation generated by the entire body of a concert grand piano *Only for SILENT Piano™ mode

In a grand piano, sound resonates throughout the body of the instrument, producing a rich reverberation that envelops the listener in sound. This phenomena is reproduced perfectly through enhanced Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM). The original VRM calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes on the keyboard, from one instant to the next, and timing and depth of damper pedals pressed. The enhanced VRM now also calculates aliquot resonance in the upper octaves, and the full resonance of the soundboard, rim, and frame. This technology allows for vivid, bright, richly-varied expression that reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in piano performance.


Stereophonic Optimizer (Piano Voices other than CFX Grand) *Only for SILENT Piano™ mode

Stereophonic Optimizer is an effect which reproduces the natural sound distance, like with the sound of Binaural Sampling, even though you are listening to it on headphones. When one of the Piano Voices other than CFX Grand is selected, the Stereophonic Optimizer is enabled.

Smooth Release-From staccato to legato, superbly expressive sound that responds to the player’s touch

Featuring Yamaha’s Smooth Release technology, TransAcoustic™ TA3 type offers the crisp tone heard when playing staccato as well as the lingering sound produced by releasing the keys more. This provides finely-nuanced response to the pianist’s playing.

Key-Off samples

The moment a pianist’s fingers are lifted from the keys of a grand piano, subtle changes occur in the instrument’s tone as the damper is lowered onto the strings to mute its sound. Key-Off samples features actual recordings of these changes, offering a faithful reproduction of the most subtle changes in the piano’s sound, allowing for a more realistic performance.

Key sensors

Under each of the 88 keys is a Yamaha-unique continuous-detection grey-scale shutter key sensor. These sensors detect the movement of the keys continually, allowing natural musical expression even when the piano is in TransAcoustic™ mode or SILENT Piano™ mode. Since they do not come into contact with the keys, these sensors do not affect the feel of the keyboard in any way.


Hammer sensors

Grand piano with TransAcoustic™ TA3 type are fitted with hammer sensors that allow even slow keystrokes or rapid trills. To ensure that they do not affect the feel of the keyboard in any way, Yamaha uses non-contact sensors.

 


Quick escape system

Grand piano with TransAcoustic™ TA3 type 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.


General functions

Connect wirelessly for Bluetooth® audio

You can stream audio files through TransAcoustic™ TA3 type by using a Bluetooth-enabled smart device. You can enjoy playing along with any songs on your smart device. (May not be available depending on your area)


Smart Pianist APP

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.


Sophosticated & simple design of the control panel

The control unit has been given a sophisticated design that unobtrusively blends with the piano itself. Moreover, the simple controllers allow you to operate the instrument easily.


For Polished White finished piano, the white colored unit will be installed.


Connection terminals

The USB TO HOST terminal allows you to connect to a computer or portable device and record high-quality audio without the need for an additional interface, while AUX OUT allows sound to be output to a variety of external devices (e.g. stereo components, IC recorders, speakers with built-in amplifiers, stereo systems), and AUX IN allows listening to sound from external devices (sound source modules and music players). MIDI OUTPUT transmits performance information to external devices such as synthesizers. MIDI IN allows the instrument to receive and playback performance information from sequencers using the tone generator of the TransAcoustic™ TA3.


Two recording systems (Built-in recorder and USB audio recorder)

The performance can be recorded in two different ways. It can be recorded either directly to the built-in recorder of a piano, or to a USB audio recorder, in which case the data stored in USB flash memory in WAV format can be played on a PC as well. Using a built-in recorder is more convenient if the players wish to listen to the recorded piece right away. It allows them to listen to the entire performance of a music piece or to go back and listen to a particular section of the piece. Since performances are saved in WAV format with a USB audio recorder, they can be recorded onto CDs or played on portable music players.


Open structured headphones- produce clear, high-quality sound

The headphones that come with TransAcoustic™ TA3 type are designed in a way that minimizes the strain on users after long hours of playing. This newly employed headphones contribute to the improvement of sound quality as well as to the reduction of fatigue during performance.


Metronome

TransAcoustic™ TA3 type has a built-in metronome that can be used in both TransAcoustic™ mode and SILENT Piano™ mode so that players can listen to precise rhythm while they play.
