Yamaha Tyros 5 61 and 76-key models announced


Visit our dedicated Tyros5 microsite for the latest information.

Yamaha Tyros5-76We’ve been building to this moment for months, and now Yamaha has finally announced the successor to its Tyros 4 arranger workstation. Isn’t it just the way that a major announcement was made the day I went on holiday? Hmmm. Still, better late than never, here’s the deal.

Yamaha will offer two Tyros5 models — a 61-key (4 octave) version and a larger 76-key (just over 6 octave) one.

More than 300 new voices have been added to the models, including “S.Art2 Voice” — high-quality sounds that re-create the feeling of an actual instrument when performing.

Ensemble performances allow the player to maintain a set number of instruments regardless of how many notes are being played. In the past, a Voice like Brass Quartet would use a sample of four players, which sounded great. However, if you played two notes you’d get eight players, which could sound great but isn’t the most realistic. Tyros5 Ensemble Voices always get the same number of players because Tyros5 has the musical knowledge of a professional music arranger. Play two notes with a Brass Quartet Ensemble Voice, and Tyros5 will send the trumpets to the top notes and the trombones to the lower notes.

The Tyros5 features Vintage, Home, Euro, Concert, and Theatre organ Voices, all superbly reproduced with stunning samples that allow the Tyros5 to shine in any situation that an organist might encounter. With features such as a comprehensive set of realistic organ-style controls, adjustable effects, and intuitive operation that allows you to alter the sound in real time while you play, Organ World is sure to meet the demands of the most demanding performer.

There are forty new percussion-bases styles. Audio Styles add natural feel, ambience, and warmth to drum and percussion parts, offering greater expressive potential. Audio Styles also benefit from Yamaha’s Time Stretch Technology, which allows the audio to follow your tempo changes without changing pitch, so everything stays in perfect sync.

Not only does the Tyros5 have new and high-quality effect types, including Real Distortion and Real Reverb, it provides beautifully designed panel displays, with highly intuitive controls – just like actual effect devices. These also include VCM (Virtual Circuit Modeling) effects that use the same technology as the professional-level processing on Yamaha’s high-end mixers.

The Tyros5 is capable of playing back and recording audio files (including performances using Audio Styles), and also possesses a range of audio manipulation features you can use to create “karaoke” style “minus one” tracks in the key and tempo of your choice.

Exact pricing and availability is to be confirmed.
