Yamaha Tyros 4 Keyboard Officially Released
The workstation is shaping up to be a crucial purchase for musicians whether they?re playing live or in the studio.
"More natural, more authentic, and exceptionally expressive," the Tyros 4 retains the ease of use of the Tyros 3, with an ergonomic panel layout and playability.
What really sets the Tyros 4 apart is its even greater variety of voices, styles and high end features.
The new Strings for example, have been taken from painstaking sampling of the 70 piece Seattle Symphony Orchestra.
One of the most significant is the human voice feature - something that has proven difficult for keyboard manufacturers to convincingly reproduce previously.
Using all new technology and clever sampling techniques, a new dimension in workstation based vocals has been launched.
Vocal patterns can be added directly from the Tyros built in Voices, with the Super Articulation Choir Voices being touted as some of the most realistic around.
The piece de resistance however, is the all new VH2 Vocal Harmony, adding both lush harmonies and synth Vocoder.
With a whole new selection of instruments, including updated and expanded organs, brass and woodwind, the Tyros 4 has a sound that should suit every style of music.
Add to this the 500 preset styles on board, and you have a powerful instrument whether being used as a band in itself or as part of a larger set up.
