PianoDisc QuietTime is an ingenious system that silences your piano, giving you the freedom and flexibility to use your piano at any time of the day.

Acoustic when you want it, silent when you need it.

Engage QuietTime’s piano silencer with the flip of a switch, stopping the piano hammers right before they hit the strings.

While your piano is silenced, the Optical Record Strip underneath the keys captures the MIDI data you create and sends it straight to your headphones.*

Invisible and unobtrusive.

Since QuietTime’s cutting-edge optical sensor technology is hidden beneath the keys and completely contact-free, it doesn’t affect your piano’s touch or aftertouch, giving you the freedom to play silently with absolutely no compromises.

Unleash your piano’s potential.

With the QuietTime ProRecord package, not only can you play silently through your headphones and use the built-in metronome, but you can turn your piano into a recording studio—playback and record MIDI, use effects such as reverb, chorus, dynamic curves, pitch, and transposition, and have access to 88 different synthesized sounds.
