What is the TransAcoustic™ Piano?

The extraordinary TransAcoustic™ Piano allows you to mute the sound and even control the volume, while still enveloping you with the uniquely rich sound of an acoustic piano. At the heart of the piano, the soundboard amplifies and projects the natural timbres generated by the transducer, providing an entirely new way to enjoy an advanced digital piano. Now you can immerse yourself in the world of the piano whenever you feel inspired, without worrying about the time or your surroundings.

Features convenient volume control, yet maintains gorgeous acoustic piano resonance. Recommended for those who want to enjoy advanced TransAcoustic™ technology on a higher quality piano.


Full acoustic piano sound with conveniently variable volume control

By switching to TransAcoustic™ mode, you can freely control the piano volume while still enjoying the richly resonant sound that can only be experienced with an acoustic piano. So, you can play whenever you want, without worrying about the time of day or what’s happening around you.

Wonderfully rich sound with headphones, with no sound outside

In Quiet mode, you can immerse yourself in the luxuriant, natural sound that comes with Binaural Sampling and Grand Expression Modeling, while completely forgetting that you’re wearing headphones.

Two world-renowned concert grand piano sounds

Featuring two iconic concert grand piano sounds – the world-renowned Yamaha CFX and the Bösendorfer Imperial, famed for its distinctively warm Viennese tone. Experience the joy of playing both, with their rich, resonant sounds and infinite variety of tonal changes.

Intuitive operation using the dedicated app

he Smart Pianist app connects you with an exciting new world of ways to enjoy piano playing. You can use it to analyse songs on your smart device and automatically generate piano scores (chord charts), or take advantage of the intuitive, at-a-glance functions to control the volume, instrument sound selection and other features.

Record and review your performances

Record your performance with a single button press and listen back right away. Or use the USB recording feature to store your performances in WAV format to USB flash memory, so you can keep them on your computer as a record of your progress.

Bluetooth® audio playback

Stream your favourite songs from your Bluetooth-enabled smart device and enjoy hearing them with the naturally rich sound of an acoustic piano soundboard. Play along with the audio tracks or simply listen to the music with the piano acting as the speaker.

Expand your horizons with new instrument sounds

More than just a piano, this remarkable instrument also has other instrument sounds, including electric piano, harpsichord, organ, strings, and choir. Select your favourite sound to match the style of music you want to play and prepare to be inspired.

Add rhythm for a dynamic performance

There are 20 different rhythms built into the SILENT Piano™ comprising drums and bass. Select the desired accompaniment pattern and enjoy playing with your own personal backing band.
