Acoustic Pianos

Many people believe that the depth and volume of sound produced from an acoustic piano will never be replicated in any digital model. The full, rich sound produced from an acoustic piano lends itself to full expression and dramatic pieces. The structure and quality of the cabinet ensure that this beautiful instrument will become a valued part of your home to be enjoyed for many years to come.

Bespoke Samples

The Yamaha b2 SC2 uses samples from two bespoke acoustic pianos for the most authentic tone possible. The CFX is Yamaha's flagship concert grand piano and represents 19 years of research and development. Yamaha has combined traditional craftsmanship and modern day engineering to examine every element of the piano, discovering how each detail can impact the sound. Bosendorfer have been crafting pianos since 1828 and are one of the oldest piano manufacturers in the world.

Bosendorfer pianos are filled with warmth and richness of tone which has inspired composers such as Bartok and Debussy. When using headphones with the b2 SC2, the binaural sampled sounds are automatically ready with no additional settings required. These samples were recorded using special microphones to pick up the sound from the musicians position when performing. When using these samples you will soon forget that you are playing with headphones.

Enhanced VRM Modelling

In an acoustic piano, sound resonates throughout the body of the instrument, producing a rich and warm sound. The enhanced Virtual Resonance Modelling (VRM) found on the b2 SC2 optimises the resonances and allows every note to be unique to faithfully emulate every nuance of your technique, similar to an acoustic piano. The VRM can also calculate the intensity of your performance and add appropriate decay of each note.
