    Features

    Authentic Ensemble Performances
    Ensemble Voice is an amazing function that utilizes parameters which "humanize" the performance to reproduce the subtle variations in timing heard in a real ensemble. This provides an authentic sound that sounds as if a group of actual performers were playing, and allows you to enjoy playing like an instrumental quartet with ease.

    Welcome to Organ World
    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.

    Add Rhythm to your performances with Audio Styles
    Adding forty new percussion-based Styles to the Tyros5’s impressive backing and accompaniment capabilities, 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.

    Enhanced DSPs for authentic effects that give you “that” sound
    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 effects that use the same technology as the professional-level processing on Yamaha's high-end mixers.

    Real Reverb
    Real Reverb is an improved version of the Reverb technology found in previous versions of the Tyros. New algorithms take a greater number of factors into account, producing smoother, more natural reverbs.

    Real Distortion
    Real Distortion effects are based on digital models of classic guitar amplifiers from the 1960's and 1970's. There are also digital models of legendary analog guitar effect pedals. The result meticulously reproduces the frequencies and dynamics of real distortion guitar sounds.

    VCM
    While digital solutions are increasingly prevalent in music production studios and performance venues, but older analog gear is still used to get the warm sound that digital effects typically cannot provide. Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology provides accurate reproductions of the classic sound of such effects units.

    A versatile high performance audio engine that gives you total control over your sound.
    The Tyros5 is capable of playing back and recording audio files, 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.

    Audio Link Multi Pad
    Audio Link Multi Pad function lets you link your own audio files (sound effects, vocal phrases, and so on), and trigger them from the Pads as you perform.

    Vocal cancel
    A powerful Vocal Cancel function effectively cancels or suppresses signals like vocals and solos that play a central role in an audio file, allowing you to make your own “minus one” track and sing “karaoke” style with just instrumental backing.

    Time stretch and pitch shift
    Not all singing voices have the same range. The Tyros5 can put your favorite song in the key of your choice with a powerful pitch shift feature that lets you change the key without changing the tempo. If you do want to change the tempo, you can use the time stretch feature to slow down or speed up the tempo without changing the pitch.

    Record styles
    In another first, the Tyros5 allows you to record Audio Styles to hard disk as audio files, which you can also use in performances.

    Powerful functions that bring new elements to your on-stage performances

    Cross fader
    Cross fader lets you adjust the volume balance between MIDI Song playback and Audio file playback, allowing you to give DJ-like performances while playing. Moving the fader to the left increases the volume of MIDI Song playback, while moving it to the right increases the volume of Audio playback.

    Panel Lock
    Lock the panel to prevent any settings from being changed when you are away from the instrument—the perfect function for the live performer.

    4 Sub Out
    Tyros5 features four Sub Out line-out connections that you can use to adapt your sound to any performance situation, whether it be sending a specific part to a powered monitor, or sending a different sound to the house PA.

    Vocal Harmony2
    With Vocal Harmony you can sing along with three of your own virtual background vocalists. Vocal Harmony2 takes that a step further with pitch recognition and stability controls. A convenient real-time Mic Level indicator is included in the main display, and a intuitive graphic user interface makes it easy to experiment with your own mic settings, effects and harmony types.

I must admit I'm eager to hear the T5 now - most people know that I have been quite critical of the Tyros 4, but if what I have heard is correct there is a real treat in store for us very shortly :D

From the details given here are my personal views.

Authentic Ensemble Performances

I suspect this may be multiple sound samples per voice (4 Trumpets for example) with each set slightly differently to each other (Possible auto variation as well) thus giving the equivalent of multi layers of voice under a single voice button.
This feature has been available in the Pro market (Hardware & Software) for years, however I believe it will be the first hardware arranger to incorporate it, with the only downside being that each sample will require 1 note of polyphony thus a quartet will require 4 notes for each single key pressed, which could cause problems having only 128 notes of polyphony.

Organ World

This will be a very popular feature as most users of arrangers (The Home player) like adding plenty of organ sounds, (Particularly Theatre & Euro sounds) and the fact that they now have on-screen layouts that look like the original will really go down well, however to get the best from these displays you really need a touch screen which hopefully it does have. (Again this has been available on the Pro Market for years but it’s good to see it trickling down to hardware arrangers)

Audio Styles

Without full editing capabilities then you will need 1000s of loops to make the styles your own, so like the Audya audio styles it is way too limited, and thus a bit of a white elephant. (Pro Users create their own styles with loops rather than sticking to pre-set styles that are favoured by arranger players)

Enhanced DSPs

Always good to have, and as they are following the Pro route of how you control them this can only be a good thing. (Once again to get the best out of them really requires a touch screen)

Real Reverb

Better reverb = better sound, however until manufactures start adding convolution reverb (As used in the pro market) then it’s nothing exciting.

Real Distortion

As DSPs

VCM

Common in the pro world and it’s nice to see it finally being added to a hardware arranger. (Interesting to see how sophisticated it is though)

Time stretch and pitch shift

If implemented correctly a great additional feature, however pro units cost a lot of dosh, so it will be interesting to see how good the Yamaha version is.

Panel Lock

If you need to enter a code to release it then it will probably be a fine feature for the Pro players out there.

4 Subs Out

Is excellent if implemented correctly so will be interesting to how Yamaha have configured it?

The rest is nothing that hasn’t been around on other arrangers for years.

Overall then while everything included has been available in the pro market for years (And of much better quality due to the availability of better hardware/software) it looks promising, but not exactly ground breaking.

As always the proof of the pudding is in the eating (Not forgetting the cost) so a full review will have to wait until someone (Other than a demonstrator) gets to play one.

Yes I am really looking forward to this one. Having had all the Tyros range and never been disappointed they certainly have come a long way.

To add to what Craig has posted.

The 76 ver without Speakers is £4011 so the speakers work out at £171 as a deal which is a £100 saving on the separates pricing.

Speakers are £270 on their own. The £4011 for 76 without speakers, a store mentioned to me the £4011 was 61 note with speakers last Tuesday, so it looks like they were wrong and got mixed up with the pricing. At least the 76 note price I was given was correct lol We'll soon know Monday anyway.

The prices seem to be all over the place. The price for the 61 note if you have the basic package with Two year warrantee seems to be around £4000 give or take. Five year warrantee a little more. 76 note is around another £300 but we will see on Monday when dealers can tell us officially PX is around £2000.for Tyros 4.
