CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage
to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Power supply/AC adaptor
Connections
• Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a
multiple-connector. Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or
possibly cause overheating in the outlet.
• Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components,
turn off the power for all components. Before turning the power on
or off for all components, set all volume levels to minimum.
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet,
always hold the plug itself and not the cord. Pulling by the cord can
damage it.
• Be sure to set the volumes of all components at their minimum
levels and gradually raise the volume controls while playing the
instrument to set the desired listening level.
• Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the instrument is not
to be used for extended periods of time, or during electrical storms.
Location
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might
accidentally fall over.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables, to
prevent damage to the cables or injury to anyone who might trip
over them.
• When moving the instrument, be careful to avoid catching your
hands or feet on the instrument.
• Move the instrument slowly with extra care to keep the instrument
from falling over, or bumping against the surroundings. We
recommend that you consult a qualified carrier to transport or move
the instrument.
• When setting up the product, make sure that the AC outlet you are
using is easily accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs,
immediately turn off the power switch and disconnect the plug from
the outlet. Even when the power switch is turned off, electricity is
still flowing to the product at the minimum level. When you are not
using the product for a long time, make sure to unplug the power
cord from the wall AC outlet.
Handling caution
• Do not insert a finger or hand in any gaps on the fallboard or
instrument. Also take care that the fallboard does not pinch your
finger.
• Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps or
opening on the main unit, fallboard, or keyboard. This could cause
physical injury to you or others, damage to the instrument or other
property, or operational failure.
• Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the
instrument, and do not use excessive force on the buttons, switches
or connectors.
• Do not use the instrument/device or headphones for a long period of
time at a high or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause
permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or
ringing in the ears, consult a physician.
• Close the fallboard when the instrument is not in use. Hold the
fallboard with both hands when opening or closing it. Be careful to
avoid catching fingers (yours or others) between the fallboard and
the main unit.
• Do not go near the instrument during an earthquake. Strong shaking
during an earthquake could cause the instrument to move or tip
over, resulting in damage to the instrument or its parts, and possibly
causing injury.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use.
Even when the [
] (Standby/On) switch is in standby status (power lamp is off), electricity is still flowing to the instrument at the minimum level.
When you are not using the instrument for a long time, make sure you unplug the power cord from the wall AC outlet.

Features
• Silencing System enables you play in any situation, at any time you want
English
Yamaha’s innovative silencing system brings you superior performance, yet with virtually complete silence.
Enjoy your performance just as if you were playing an acoustic piano—but without the need to worry about
bothering people around you.
• Non-contact sensors for maximum expressiveness
The non-contact optical sensors faithfully detect subtle movement of the keys without affecting the touch of
the keys. They catch keystroke information precisely, enabling you to perform with rich nuance and
extraordinarily subtle expression.
• Elegant, integrated design
The control unit has been given a graceful design that unobtrusively blends with the piano itself. Moreover, the
simple controllers allow you to operate the instrument easily.
• Realistic ambience of the Voices enhances your performance
This instrument puts the sound of ten luxurious, authentic Voices at your fingertips. These include Yamaha’s
flagship CFX piano—which delivers dynamic sound, from a brilliant high-range to powerful bass—and the
Bösendorfer* Imperial, a world-class piano renowned for its subtle and warm sound. The instrument also
features advanced technologies such as Binaural Sampling. Listening with headphones to a piano Voice
enhanced through these methods gives the impression of being thoroughly immersed in the sound, as if it was
actually emanating from the piano.
Altogether, it delivers real sound faithful to that of an actual acoustic piano, such as the quick attack and the
graceful resonance of a sustained piano tone, as well as how the sound responds to your playing strength, and
the resonance effect when the damper pedal is pressed.
* Bösendorfer is a subsidiary company of Yamaha.
• Playback and recording functions for aid in learning and practice
You can record your performance to this instrument and a USB flash drive, and improve your performance by

This instrument features two advanced technologies that allow you to enjoy exceptionally realistic, natural
sound, even though listening on headphones. These functions can be turned on or off as desired (page 37).
Binaural Sampling (CFX Grand Voice only)
Binaural Sampling is a method that uses two special microphones set at the ear position of a performer and
records the sound from a piano as it would actually be heard. Listening to the sound with this effect through
headphones gives the impression of being immersed in the sound, as if it was actually emanating from the
piano. When the CFX Grand Voice is selected, binaural sampled sound is produced.
Stereophonic Optimizer (Piano Voices other than CFX Grand)
Stereophonic Optimizer is an effect which reproduces the natural sound distance, like with the sound of
Binaural Sampling, even though you are listening to it on headphones. When one of the Piano Voices other
than CFX Grand is selected, the Stereophonic Optimizer is enabled.

Recording and Playback
This instrument allows you to record your performance by using one of the following two methods. The
recorded performance can be played back and saved for use with other devices.
MIDI recording
With this method, your keyboard performances are recorded and saved to internal memory of this unit as a
MIDI Song (SMF format 0). In a MIDI song, the information of your keyboard performance (such as keystroke
and velocity) is recorded. This is not a recording of the actual sound. Information such as the selected Voice,
Beat and Tempo is also recorded to the MIDI Song. The recorded MIDI Song can be transmitted and saved to
a computer (page 31).
Audio recording
With this method, your keyboard performances are recorded then saved to USB flash drive as an Audio Song
in stereo WAV format of normal CD-quality resolution (44.1 kHz/16 bit, stereo). The saved Audio Song can be
transmitted to and played on portable music players.
NOTE
You can use the metronome (page 19) while recording, although the metronome sound will not be recorded.
Recording your performance to internal memory (MIDI
recording)
One Song can be recorded in the MIDI format to the internal memory of this unit. The recorded MIDI Song is
maintained in the internal memory even when the power is turned off.
NOTICE
Note that recording to internal memory will overwrite any previously recorded data. To prevent your important data
from being overwritten and erased, save the necessary data to a computer (page 31).
NOTE
• This instrument can record up to approximately 500 KB (approx. 55,000 notes). This is equivalent to about 40 minutes for
conventional songs. However, frequent use of the pedals or changing of Voices while playing may cause the recording time
to be shortened to five minutes.
• You cannot start recording during Song playback. Make sure to stop playback beforehand.

Adjusting the playback tempo
You can change the tempo or speed during Song playback.
English
MIDI Songs (including Voice Demo Songs and Preset Songs)
The MIDI Song tempo can be adjusted in the same operation as the metronome tempo. Refer to “Adjusting the
tempo” (page 20).
NOTE
• When the MIDI Song tempo is changed, the metronome tempo is also changed to the same tempo.
• For MIDI Songs having tempo changes in the middle of the Song, changing the tempo alters entire tempo relatively. For
example, in a Song that is set to a tempo of 100 at the start and changes midway during the Song to 120, changing the
starting tempo to 110 (10% faster) will result in a midway tempo of 132 (10% faster).
Audio Songs
The playback speed of an Audio Song in the USB flash drive can be adjusted by stretching or compressing it.
Compared to an original speed of 100%, it can be adjusted over the range of 75% – 125%.
During playback, while holding down the [Metronome] button, rotate the [VOICE/VALUE] control to adjust
the playback speed.
Pressing the [VOICE/VALUE] control while holding down the [Metronome] button lets you reset to the
original speed.
Pressing one of the A#0 – D1 keys while holding down the [Metronome] button lets you increase/decrease the
speed by 1% or 10%.
A#0: -10%

The pitch of an Audio Song is not affected by this setting. The pitch of a MIDI Song is changed, but the setting cannot be
recorded.
 Transpose
Shifts the pitch of the entire keyboard up or down in semitone intervals to facilitate playing in difficult key
signatures, and to let you easily match the pitch of the keyboard to the range of a singer or other instruments.
For example, if you set this parameter to “5,” playing key C produces pitch F. In this way, you can play the F
major song as if it were in C major.

 Reverb Type
An actual piano sounds differently depending on the size of the room, or the material of the building in which
it is played. The reverberation is the major reason for this difference. Using the Reverb effect and simulating
the reverberation in a concert hall, etc. gives you the feeling of the being at a live performance. Although
selecting a Voice will call up the optimum Reverb type for the selected Voice, you can change the Reverb type
as desired.

VRM (Virtual Resonance Modeling) technology
On an actual acoustic piano, if you press the damper pedal and play a key, not only does the string of the pressed key
vibrate, it also causes other strings and the soundboard to vibrate, with each influencing the rest, creating a rich and
brilliant resonance that sustains and spreads. The VRM (Virtual Resonance Modeling) technology featured in this unit
reproduces the complicated interaction of both string and soundboard resonance faithfully using a virtual musical
instrument (physical modeling), and makes the sound more like a real acoustic piano. Since instantaneous resonance is
made at the moment according to the state of the keyboard or pedal, you can vary the sound expressively by changing
the timing of your pressing the keys, and the timing and depth of your pressing the pedal.
SC2 Owner’s Manual
37
 Local Control
Turns the Local Control function on/off. “Local Control On” is a state in which this instrument produces the
sound from its tone generator when you play the keyboard. In “Local Control Off ” state, the keyboard and the
tone generator are cut off from each other. This means that even if you play the keyboard, this instrument will
produce no sound. Instead, the keyboard data can be transmitted via MIDI to a connected device such as
computer, which can produce the sound. The “Local Control Off ” setting is useful when you wish to play only
an external sound source while playing the keys on this instrument.

Troubleshooting
If you have problems with your Silent Piano™, here are a few troubleshooting tips. If you cannot solve the
problem easily yourself, consult your Yamaha piano dealer. DO NOT attempt to repair the piano or the AC
adaptor yourself.
The unit is turned on but does not emit sound.
No Reverb effect is applied to the sound.
• The AC adaptor may not be plugged in correctly. Insert
the AC adaptor firmly into the DC IN 16V jack and AC
outlet.
• The [VOLUME] control may be turned to the far left
position. Adjust the setting to an optimal level. The unit
outputs standard volume when the volume control is
set to the 3 o’clock position.
• The Reverb depth may be set to minimum. Adjust the
depth to apply an appropriate amount of Reverb
(page 36).
The sound lingers excessively.
• The Reverb depth may be set to an excessive level.
Adjust the Reverb depth to an appropriate level
(page 36).
The power is automatically turned off.
• This is normal and due to the Auto Power Off function.
If necessary, disable the Auto Power Off function
(page 15).
The acoustic piano emits sound when I am
playing with the Silent Piano™ function active.
• Playing with extreme force may result in sound being
emitted from the acoustic piano. Please moderate the
strength of your playing.
The balance varies when listening through
commercially available headphones.
• Headphone properties differ depending on their type,
so different headphones may have different balance
characteristics.
The volume varies when listening through
commercially available headphones.
• Headphone properties differ depending on their type,
so different headphones may have different volume
characteristics.
I can hear a rattling sound from the piano body
when using it in Silent Piano™ mode.
• This is not a fault. This is the sound of the acoustic
piano’s keystroke.
When I play a rapid series of notes in Silent
Piano™ mode, a loud sound is emitted that is not
part of the performance.
The pitch of this instrument is different from that
of other instruments.
• You can adjust the pitch of this unit to match that of
other instruments (page 34).
The connected USB flash drive does not respond.
• Disconnect the USB flash drive from the unit and then
connect it again. If it still does not respond, it may be
damaged.
• Check if your USB flash drive is supported on this unit
(page 25).
The Song saved in the USB flash drive cannot be
played back.
• This unit can play only the latest recorded Song in the
USB flash drive. If you want to play the Songs recorded
previously, use an external audio device such as a
computer or a portable music player.
Sound input to the [AUX IN] jack is interrupted.
• The Noise Gate function is activated (page 38). Increase
the output volume of the external device connected to
the [AUX IN] jack, or set the Noise Gate to off.
(Grand Piano) No Sostenuto effect is applied
when the sostenuto pedal is pressed.
• The Sostenuto effect cannot be applied when the Silent
Piano function is active.
• This is not a fault. The structure of the Silent Piano™
causes this to occur in some cases.
