TC3 Amplifid Sound

Amplified Sound

When a hammer strikes a string, all elements of the acoustic piano resonate together to amplify the unique sound of the instrument. TransAcoustic Technology uses these acoustic elements to bring digital sounds to life, allowing you to adjust the volume and experience the piano in a whole new way.

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. Our 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.

Ultra-Light Transducer

We created a state-of-the-art, ultra-light transducer that can turn digital sounds into vibrations and apply them directly to the soundboard. All without sacrificing the remarkable acoustic tone you’ve come to expect from a Yamaha piano.

Our advanced non-contact Articulation 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.
