Description

Next Generation Content

Tyros is well known for industry leading content quality but now Tyros4 raises the bar even higher with its amazing array of sparkling new voices and styles. The Tyros4’s content is more polished than ever before.

Extraordinarily expressive and realistic Voices

The Tyros4 has an expanded and enhanced set of exceptionally authentic Voices, and gives you the means to play these Voices more naturally and with greater expressiveness. In particular, the instrument has many new Super Articulation Choir Voices, with amazingly realistic and natural human voice sounds―giving you even more expressive capability.

Powerful, professional Auto Accompaniment Styles

The Styles of the Tyros4 have been vastly enhanced with the expert use of new Super Articulation and Super Articulation 2 Voices. Greater and more expressive variations in the MegaVoices have been employed as well, particularly in the Scat and Gospel Voices.

Dynamic and Versatile Vocal Harmony feature—with Synth Vocoder

The newly enhanced Vocal Harmony 2 (VH2) processing engine delivers superior sound, lightning-fast processing, and comprehensive, flexible control of the harmonies applied to your singing voice. It also has a Synth Vocoder feature, providing the dynamic, popular vocoder effect for a variety of luscious and even other-worldly sounds. Moreover, the rear-panel combo jack lets you easily connect either XLR mic cables or 1/4" phone plug.

Voice expandability

Tyros4 is an open-ended instrument that lets you continually expand the available content for your creative explorations. Yamaha has an online service website (http://service.music.yamaha.com) featuring Premium Voices, Waves, Songs and Styles, etc. (called Premium Pack data) that can be purchased and loaded to the Tyros4. (In order to use the additional Waves and Voices you purchased, you’ll need to install the optional Flash Memory Expansion Module.)

Audio recording and playback

Tyros4 lets you record your performances as audio data, with two different methods, Simple (quick and easy recording to a single audio track) and Multi Track (overdub recording for complex songs). Since the created audio data is saved in WAV file format, you can edit your recordings on computer and share it over the Internet or burn your own original CD. The instrument also allows you to play back MP3 data.

Convenient, easy-to-use Music Finder function

With the enormous wealth of data available on the instrument (including your own Song and Audio data), the Music Finder function lets you instantly find and call up what you need. Not only can you get ideal setups (Voice, Style, etc.) for each song—searching by song title/genre—you can also easily retrieve your original Song and Audio data (registered beforehand). Additional new panel settings for the Tyros4 can be directly downloaded from the Internet.

Enhanced features for directly connecting to the Internet

The Tyros4 can also be directly connected to the Internet with the Internet Direct Connection function, allowing you to download special content without the need for a computer. Enhancements include a convenient, easy-to-use IDC Setup Wizard, as well as new security options, with WPA2 and WPA.

Audio Recording

No need for separate recording hardware—you can record your keyboard performance as well as your own singing or the sound of other instruments directly to the Tyros4! The audio is captured to the built-in hard disk drive as digital audio data—with absolutely noise-free audio quality. With computer and audio editing software, you can also edit the sound file as needed, and then re-import it to the Tyros4. Since the created audio data is saved in WAV file format, you can easily share your performances over the Internet or burn your own original CD. The instrument also supports MP3 data, allowing you to play back files in that popular format.
