The Silent piano is a device that can be installed in a piano. Then the piano can sound through headphones or speakers.
The Silent is a complement for a piano that allows you to have an hybrid piano: An acoustic piano which works and sounds perfectly (without any variation as it was without the Silent), and it can be used as an electronic piano.
• There are sensors on keys and pedals, they send information to the console under the keyboard. In this console there is the audio output to connect the headphones.
• There is also a lever under the keyboard that moves a bar inside the piano. When the lever is activated the bar stops the hammers before they hit the strings, so the piano is muted and only sounds by the audio output of the console.
The interposition bar has a felt to stop the hammers without any damage.
When the bar is activated the piano doesn’t sound by itself and it is muted, but it keeps its normal piano touch and pulse, much better than the pulse of an electronic piano. Therefore, it is a good choice to play and practice in home at any hour and not bothering anybody.
The system installed detects the movement of the keys, the mechanism and the pedals, detecting the velocity and the pulse intensity. It does the detection by sensors, specifically by photosensors protected with a thin plastic strip to protect them from dust. The signal is transmited to the console, to reproduce the sound through headphones or speakers, so you can change the volume and select different output sounds. Additionally, it also allows an easy recording with the speakers output, or with a mini-USB output (MIDI compatible).
