Electric system: SRT system for CPX1000
Using advanced Digital Signal Processing and real-world insight into audio technology and recording techniques, Yamaha have developed SRT – a pickup and preamp system capable of delivering an amazingly natural, studio-quality acoustic guitar tone.
Sounds that were, until now, only attainable by professional recording engineers using expensive vintage microphones in world-class acoustic spaces are now easily recreated by any player, on stage or in the studio.
SRT does not artificially create a guitar tone, rather it creates a faithful reproduction of the other elements that make up a great guitar sound – the subtle ambience of the real space between instrument and microphone, the characteristic EQ voicing of a great-sounding vintage mic, the different resonances captured when you move a mic around a guitar.
And because SRT uses your guitar’s natural tone as a basis for this process, the result is phenomenally realistic and full of the acoustic character of your guitar.
