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/Power cord
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
• A real acoustic piano that lets you freely change the volume or Voice as you want
English
Yamaha’s innovative TransAcoustic™ technology lets you adjust the volume or change the Voices—without
affecting your performance at all, just as when playing an acoustic piano (TransAcoustic mode). The
instrument also features the Silent Piano™ mode in which you can play silently while listening to the sound
from the headphones.
You can take advantage of these functions and get more enjoyment with the piano, such as playing in a lower
volume to enjoy with people near you, or in silence to concentrate on practice, or playing with various Voices.
• Natural expressive feel possible only with an acoustic piano
In the TransAcoustic mode, TransAcoustic technology vibrates the entire soundboard and causes resonance of
the strings and the piano body allowing you to enjoy playing with an exceptionally natural acoustic feel.
Even in the Silent Piano mode, advanced technologies such as Binaural Sampling gives you the impression of
the sound as if it was actually emanating from the piano when listening through headphones.
• Realistic resonance enhances your performance
This instrument puts the sound of 20 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.
In the TransAcoustic mode, the resonance of the strings and the piano body lets you enjoy the rich ambience
even when playing with the built-in Voices.
* Bösendorfer is a subsidiary company of Yamaha.
• Real acoustic piano touch for maximum expressiveness
Naturally, since this is an actual acoustic piano, it is exceptionally expressive. Moreover, the sensors which
detect the movement of the keys are non-contact optical sensors, so they do not affect the playing touch. 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.
• Playback and recording functions for enjoying music anytime
You can record your performance to this instrument and a USB flash drive, and improve your performance by
listening back to the recording.
This instrument also features a Bluetooth audio function, which allows you to play along on this instrument
with audio from a Bluetooth-equipped device, and even record the audio as an audio Song.
Smart Device App “Smart Pianist”
The smart device app “Smart Pianist” (available as a free download) enables you to use the functions such
as selecting Voices, controlling the metronome intuitively with the visualized interface, or display the score
on your smart device.
For information about this app, access the following web page:
https://www.yamaha.com/kbdapps/
The connection wizard of the Smart Pianist helps you to connect this unit to your smart device properly. To
start connection wizard, tap [ ] (Menu) located upper left on the Smart Pianist screen to open the menu,
then tap “Instrument” followed by “Start Connection Wizard.”

Playing the TransAcoustic™ Piano
English
This instrument can be played as a normal acoustic piano, and you can also use the following three modes
depending on the situations. In these modes, you can use the various functions such as playing preset Voices
built into unit and recording your performances.
• TransAcoustic mode: You can play with the digital sound and hear it through resonance of the soundboard
of the piano by the TransAcoustic technology (page 18).
• Layer mode: You can play with the digital sound as well as the acoustic piano sound (page 19).
• Silent Piano mode: You can play with the sound muted and listen to the digital sound through the
headphones (page 20).
TransAcoustic technology
On acoustic pianos, as you play the keyboards, the hammers strike the strings and then the vibration is transmitted to the
soundboard to emit the sound. On the other hand, on this TransAcoustic piano, the tone generator sends audio signals to a
transducer that converts the signals to vibrations and transmits them to the soundboard. The sound resonating from the
soundboard is just like that on acoustic pianos. The TransAcoustic technology allows you to adjust the volume, while the
natural and rich resonance characteristic of acoustic pianos are maintained.
Playing as an acoustic piano
If you want to play as a normal acoustic piano, you do not need to turn on the power to the instrument.
• For upright pianos:
Turn the power off, and pull the silencing lever forward to return it to the back position, or press the center
pedal to slide it to the right, allowing you to play it as an acoustic piano.
With sostenuto pedal
No sostenuto pedal
• For grand pianos:
You can switch the instrument to play as an acoustic piano while the power is on. Pressing the [VOLUME]
control lights up the [Aco.] lamp and enables you to play as an acoustic piano. When the control is pressed,
the Voice is automatically set to “---” (Off).
Pressing the [VOLUME] control again switches the instrument to the TransAcoustic mode.
Lights up
NOTE
If you select a Voice other than “---” (Off), both the [Aco.] and [TA] lamps light up indicating that the instrument is in the
Layer mode (page 19).

 Reproducing a natural sound distance sensation (even when using
headphones)—Binaural Sampling and Stereophonic Optimizer
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 44).
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 (page 64) is selected, the Stereophonic Optimizer is enabled.

Audio Songs: Compared to an original speed of 100%, it can be adjusted over the range of
75% – 125%. The setting value is maintained until another Song is selected.
Speed (%)
NOTE
• 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).
• When the MIDI Song tempo is changed, the metronome tempo is also changed to the same tempo. The Audio Song
speed does not affect the metronome tempo.
• While the Audio Song is paused and the metronome is played back, this operation changes only the metronome tempo
and the Audio Song speed is not changed.

major song as if it were in C major.
Setting range
-12 – 0 – +12
Default setting 0
40
TA2 Owner’s Manual
NOTE
Your keyboard performance data will be transmitted with the transposed note numbers while MIDI note numbers received from
an external MIDI device or computer will not be affected by the Transpose setting.
English
 Master Tune
Fine tunes the pitch of the entire instrument in 0.2 Hz steps. This lets you accurately match the keyboard pitch
to that of other instruments or music on a portable music player.
Setting range
A3 = 414.8 Hz – 466.8 Hz
Default setting A3 = 440.0 Hz
NOTE
The hundreds digit is omitted for the value shown in the display (e.g., “40.2” stands for 440.2 Hz).
 Scale Type (Temperament)
Modern acoustic pianos are tuned almost exclusively in equal temperaments. Likewise, this unit employs equal
temperament, but you can select one of various scales for playing in custom tunings for specific historical
periods or music genres.
Setting range
1 (Equal)
The pitch range of each octave is divided equally into twelve parts,
with each half-step evenly spaced in pitch. This is the most commonly
used tuning in music today.
2 (Pure Major)
These tunings preserve the pure mathematical intervals of each scale,
especially for triad chords (root, third, fifth). You can hear this best in
actual vocal harmonies — such as choirs and a cappella singing.
3 (Pure Minor)
4 (Pythagorean)
This scale was devised by the famous Greek philosopher and is
created from a series of perfect fifths, which are collapsed into a single
octave. The 3rd in this tuning are slightly unstable, but the 4th and 5th
are beautiful and suitable for some leads.
5 (Mean-Tone)
This scale was created as an improvement on the Pythagorean scale,
by making the major third interval more “in tune.” It was especially
popular from the 16th century to the 18th century. Handel, among
others, used this scale.
6 (Werckmeister)
This composite scale combines the Werckmeister and Kirnberger
systems, which were themselves improvements on the mean-tone and
Pythagorean scales. The main feature of this scale is that each key
has its own unique character. The scale was used extensively during
the time of Bach and Beethoven, and even now it is often used when
performing period music on the harpsichord.
7 (Kirnberger)
Default setting 1 (Equal)
TA2 Owner’s Manual
41
 Base Note
Determines the base note for the Scale selected above. When the base note is changed, the pitch of the
keyboard is transposed, yet maintains the original pitch relationship between the notes. This setting is
necessary when Scale Tune is set to something other than “Equal Temperament.”
Setting range
C, C#, D, Eb, E, F, F#, G, Ab, A, Bb, B
Default setting C
NOTE
In the display, the note is followed by a high bar if sharp, and the note is followed by a low bar if flat.
C#
Eb
 Metronome Volume
Adjusts the metronome volume.
Setting range
1 – 20
Default setting 15
 MIDI Song/Keyboard Volume Balance
Adjusts the volume balance between the keyboard performance and the MIDI Song playback. The higher the
value, the Song playback volume decreases, the lower the value, the keyboard performance volume decreases.
To adjust the balance with Audio Song, adjust the Audio Song volume in F4.4 (page 43).
Setting range
-64 – 0 – +64
Default setting 0
NOTE
Some PianoSoft Songs have their own volume balance settings. These settings take priority to the balance setting here.
42
TA2 Owner’s Manual
 Song Transpose
English
Shifts the pitch of the MIDI Song or Audio Song up or down in semitone intervals. For example, if you set this
parameter to “5,” the note of key C is played back in pitch F. In this way, the F major song is played back as if it
were in C major.
Setting range
-12 – 0 – +12
Default setting 0
NOTE
• MIDI note numbers received from an external MIDI device or computer will not be affected by the Transpose setting.
• Applying transpose to an Audio Song may change its tonal characteristics.
 Audio Song Volume
Adjusts the volume of Audio Song playback.
Setting range
1 – 20
Default setting 16
 Half Pedal Point
You can sets the degree to which pressing the damper pedal applies the half-pedal effect. The larger the value,
the wider the half-pedal range. Larger values give you greater leeway in controlling the half-pedal effect.
Setting range
-2 – 0 – +4
Default setting 0
Half-pedal function
This function allows the sustain length to vary depending on how far the pedal is pressed. The farther you
press the pedal, the more the sound sustains. For example, if you press the damper pedal and all notes you
are playing sound a bit murky and loud with too much sustain, you can release the pedal half way to
subdue the sustain (murkiness).
TA2 Owner’s Manual
43
 Binaural On/Off
Turns the Binaural function on or off. When this function is on, the sound from this instrument changes to the
sound of Binaural Sampling or the sound enhanced with the Stereophonic Optimizer (page 22), allowing you
to enjoy more realistic sound even when listening with headphones.
Setting range
On, OFF
Default setting On
NOTE
This is effective only when headphones are connected.
Since the sound of Binaural Sampling and the sound enhanced with the Stereophonic Optimizer are
optimized for listening with headphones, we recommend that you set this function to “OFF” in the
following situation.
You should turn these functions off when:
• Playing the sound of this instrument with an external powered speaker system or a mixer, while
monitoring the sound output from this instrument on connected headphones.
• Making an Audio Recording (page 27) and then playing the recorded Audio Song through speakers. (If
you want to play the Audio Song recorded on this instrument through speakers, make sure to turn these
functions off before using Audio Recording.)
NOTE
Before connecting an external audio device, be sure to read “Connecting to external audio devices” (page 51).
 VRM On/Off
Turns the VRM effect (see below) on/off. When set to on, the VRM effect is applied only to piano Voices (PF.1
– PF.5). Damper Resonance, String Resonance and Aliquot Resonance produced by VRM can be adjusted
separately in F5.4 – F5.7.
Setting range
On, OFF
Default setting On
NOTE
Only the sound output from headphones is affected.
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.
44
TA2 Owner’s Manual
 Damper Resonance Depth
English
Determines the depth of the resonance effect produced by VRM which is applied when the damper pedal is
pressed. This parameter is effective only when VRM is on (page 44) and one of the piano Voice is selected.
Setting range
0 – 10
Default setting 5
NOTE
Only the sound output from headphones is affected.
 String Resonance Depth
Determines the depth of the string resonance effect produced by VRM which is applied when a note on the
keyboard is pressed. This parameter is effective only when VRM is on (page 44) and one of the piano Voice is
selected.
Setting range
0 – 10
Default setting 5
NOTE
Only the sound output from headphones is affected.
 Aliquot Resonance Depth
Determines the depth of the Aliquot resonance effect produced by VRM which is applied when you release
your hands from the keyboard. This parameter is effective only when VRM is on (page 44) and one of the
piano Voice is selected.
Setting range
0 – 10
Default setting 5
NOTE
Only the sound output from headphones is affected.
What is Aliquot?
Aliquot is a stringing method for pianos that uses extra, un-struck strings in the upper octaves to enhance
the tone. These strings sympathetically vibrate with other strings in an acoustic piano, resonating with
overtones, and adding richness, brilliance and complex color to the sound. Since they do not have a
damper, they will continue sounding even after you release your hands from the keyboard.

Troubleshooting
If you have problems with the unit, 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 yourself.
Problem
Solution
The power does not turn on.
The power plug may not be properly
connected.
Connect the plug of the power cord firmly
into the AC outlet (page 15).
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 (pages 16 and 47).
The overall volume is low, or no
sound is heard.
The [VOLUME] control may be turned to
the far left position.
Adjust the volume to an optimal level
(pages 18 and 20).
Local Control is set to off.
Make sure that Local Control (page 46) is
on.
The acoustic piano emits sound
when playing in the TransAcoustic
mode/Silent Piano mode.
Playing with extreme force may result in
sound being emitted from the acoustic
piano.
Moderate the strength of your playing.
The balance or volume varies
between the included
headphones and the
commercially available
headphones.
Headphone properties differ depending
on their type, so different headphones
may have different balance or volume
characteristics.
Use the same type of headphones for
optimum performance.
A rattling sound from the piano
body can be heard when playing
in TransAcoustic mode/Silent
Piano mode.
This is not a fault. It is the sound of the acoustic piano’s keystroke.
When playing a rapid series of
notes in the TransAcoustic mode/
Layer mode/Silent Piano mode,
a sound louder than expected
(considering playing strength)
occurs.
This is not a fault. The structure of the TransAcoustic Piano causes this to occur in
some cases.
Sound is not output properly or
evenly.
Since the keyboard was pressed when
the power is turned on, the keyboard
position is detected incorrectly.
Turn off the power and turn it on again to
reset the function. Do not touch any keys
when turning the power on.
No Reverb effect is applied to the
sound.
The Reverb depth may be set to
minimum.
Increase the Reverb Depth to apply an
appropriate amount of Reverb (page 35).
The sound lingers excessively.
The Reverb depth or the Damper
Resonance effect depth may be set to an
excessive level.
Set these parameters to an appropriate
level (pages 35 and 45).
Noise is heard from the
headphones or speakers.
The noise may be due to interference
caused by the use of a mobile phone in
close proximity to the instrument.
Turn the mobile phone off, or use it away
from the instrument.
The headphones or speakers may not be
connected correctly.
Connect the headphones or speakers to
the corresponding jacks firmly (pages 16
and 51).
Noise can be heard when you use the
instrument along with the application on
your smart device, such as an iPhone and
iPad.
When you use the instrument along with a
smart device, we recommend that you set
“Airplane Mode” to on and then the Wi-Fi/
Bluetooth setting to on in order to avoid
noise caused by communication.
The pitch is different depending on the
instrument.
You can adjust the pitch of this instrument
to match that of other instruments
(page 41).
The pitch of this instrument is
different from that of other
instruments.
