GC1 TransAcoustic™ Yamaha Grand Piano
Yamaha Grand Piano GC1 Fully made in Japan.
TransAcoustic™ technologyNewly developed TransAcoustic™ technology transmits digital sound directly to the piano soundboard, thus making the piano itself behave as a speaker. 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
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.
Combine acoustic and digital sound
Allow you to layer the natural, resonant sound of the acoustic piano together with voices from the tone generator. 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™ TA2 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 just sit back and listen to the playback.
A broad sonic palette
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.
