- I think the dj t Describes CHARACTERISTICS have, so I'll plutt indicate how, in my opinion, it differs from other arrangers to be found in the same range of prices (between 1000 and 1500).
- Key semi-weighted with aftertouch, CHARACTERISTICS MODELS for premium.
- Systm amplification 2.1 (2 satellites + subwoofer active), giving a powerful and deep bass.
- Sound "mgavoices", a Yamaha exclusivity for simulating sounds of guitar and bass (the rsultats are really bluffing!).
- Large color screen, tilt (several positions) and contrast trs.
- Connectivity ultra complte: line and microphone inputs, many audio outputs, headphone jack, USB, MIDI (2 in, 2 out, 2 through), taken to three pedals, output video.
- Vocal harmony with multi-effects
- Hard drive for storing thousands of styles, and sounds squence
- 6 simultaneous multi-effects reverb + chorus + + + compressor equalizer: Yamaha dominated the competition in this area.
- Features MIDI keyboard matre trs compltes and customizable
- Trs squenceur 32 tracks, complete with display of the score and lyrics
- Sound editor ahead of PC
- And of course the sounds, styles and designs of professional quality.
In the same budget, we can compare MODELS Premium Used (Korg PA1X for example) that offer comparable CHARACTERISTICS (with a few tips and more and others less). .. MODELS or new mid-range (Yamaha PSR S710, Korg PA500), which offer - on paper - of sounds and styles of equivalent quality and often more current but are dpourvus aftertouch , have more limited multi-effects, look less "pro", a less powerful amplifier and lower quality and no hard drive. To each to see what he needs!
Two small CHARACTERISTICS BMOL to extraordinary (for me) of this keyboard:
- There is no sampling, which limits somewhat the possibilities of sound ... Fast Fashion There's dj but what to do with the internal samples, and everyone is interested by the sampling.
- There is no port for USB key or SD card, which is now on keyboards midrange. However, the prsence hard drive and USB "to host" compensate for this limitation.
Overall, for its CHARACTERISTICS, I put 9 / 10.
- The manual, in French, is complete and trs dcoup in 2 parts (fast startup manual Retailer), as is often the case.
I have not had any difficulty appropriating the main functions of Tyros, partly because I had a PSR2000 before, which followed the same logic, but not only: I find the Yamaha keyboard g nralement simpler to use than other brands (I also had a Technics, Roland a two GEM and I play in a group on a Korg).
J'apprcie particulirement the "registration memory" that can mmoriser rglages all (style, sounds, effects, etc..) In the 8 buttons available on the screen: it is thus very s easy to change style or orchestration in-game, in real time. Much more flexible, got me, that the system of "performance" that offers most other brands.
J'apprcie also the great screen, which greatly facilitates the rglages, the edition of sounds and squence, especially the mix.
Online help multilingual (including franais) is a plus.
Small BMOL: the edition is fairly limited sound from the interface of Tyros. Fortunately Yamaha provides a utility for PC (and Mac I think): Tyros Voice Editor, which allows you to enter the publishing depth of sound. ACCS was then all the power of the engine sound of Tyros (the same as the SERIES MOTIF, the "MegaVoice" and more). There's also the utility "MegaVoice enhencer", which facilitates the use of sound "MegaVoice" (ultra ralistes but complex to use) into MIDI squence.
In short, to use, it's almost flawless for me. The report "performance / complexity of use" is excellent. A beginners would find probably too complex because of the number of buttons and menus, but you must be aware that this is a key "pro", even when that requires a minimum of training to be properly exploit. I put my 9 / 10, to express a user (for beginners, I would plutt 7 / 10).
- Overall Opinion
- I use it for 4 years. The models except I possds before, I have not tried many others. The PSR2000 liked me, so I knew I was taking little risk in buying a Tyros.
I have since tried other models, including the Korg (PA500, PA800), which I find quite sduisants (very good sound, can be more "characters" that sounds Yamaha), but their use seems less comfortable (I use also a PA50SD within a group and I confirm: the interface is much better on the Tyros, at least for my use).
What I like most / least: I have ben dj parl prcdemment then résumé to:
- The "plus": large color display, keyboard with semi-weighted aftertouch, amplification, ergonomics, quality and number of sounds (including MegaVoice) and styles, hard drive, many multi-effects, design "pro".
- The "less": no sampling, no USB port for cl / SD card.
I have used until now with great pleasure, for INTERPRETATION pieces in all styles and a bit to compose.
Following a change of course music, I intend to sell (sorry!) To go east over a keyboard computer music / synthse / electro music. If I could, I would keep in the Tyros keyboard or as complment matre, but I have no place ...
Of all the keyboards I possds the Tyros is by far given me the most satisfaction. If I had to buy an arranger keyboard today, with a budget of around 1000 euros or a little more, I certainly would do that choice. However, I found nine expensive, as it seems to be a bargain opportunity! 10/10.
- On the characteristics of Tyty, I think we've already made the rounds ...
- The manual is clear enough. For my part, I have not had to use it except for MIDI. The tyros is really the machine that can not swallow a night without run-in with the unit. It makes sense. When we begin to understand, while parrait extremely clear. For my part, I find the Tyros much easier to pick up a pattern all lines together ...
- Overall Opinion
- I bought the Tyros in 2003 which complemented the Motif7 I bought a year before by. The Korg PA1X home seemed to be okay, but far too synthetic and lifeless to me then Tyros arrived in my studio and made my life much more interesting programming.
What I convincu most is the sounds of strings, orchestras, guitars mégavois his poliphonie 126 to see and especially its incredibly easy to be taken in hand and be transported.
Since 2003, Tyros is almost everywhere I go. I never left.
Of course Yamaha out many other things since the time but never arrive at all surprise me that out of my first listen to the Tyros.
The tyros 2 is itself a vulaire improved since the first and Tyros, Yamaha have fun with our wallets and credit cards in us coming out every year a template that contains a bit of thing without any surprise.
So to summarize, we have had since the pattern:
The Tyros, the Motif ES quireprend most tyros sounds and classic design,
the Tyros 2 which merely reproduces the sounds of the Tyros 1 and Motif ES Of course with two drum kits and more, and if a few things from there and,
Now, the famous Motif XS makes us a compilation of everything I have just line shells.
The next is what?
Tyros ES or XS?
Tyros is not the classic is a great moment of wonder every faith that I break my hands on.N / A
- Overall Opinion
- The tyros bomb is a bomb in the sounds of something sick pfff c is the sort of thing when you're in the hands of the calculation you have even more t wife for at least 1 month since I last I have the I regale the sounds of guitars c is a trick even some egg guitarist with whom I work are seduced by the sound produced by the beast's deadly flutes and sax has cut the wind for me anyway
creation of the piece rather simple manual french very clear at last for those who do the Will not go to a dealer for a good listen and you'll see on the call TYROS mN / A
- See yamaha site
- Solton being convinced, I just bought a TYROS and like others I am still baba.
Apart from the Vocalizer more complex to use ergonomics sounds nothing wrong but at this price we can give the hard drive as standard. The controls are super full and that you get used very faciles.La opportunity to mix live with rhythms are not even talking stupéfiante.Ne pads .............. ..........
- Overall Opinion
- Three days (and nights) and I am more than convinced.
Skip all the TYROS even if the investment is consequent.Le manual is simple and not stupidly translated ca help in getting startedN / A
- TYROS arranger 61 ratings
+ USB connectivity standard for transferring files, ditions of sounds, styles.
many effects, taken (with vocals), karaoksans accents).
disk drive (HDD optional)
1185 sounds (including trs mga little voice)
squenceur 35000 Notes
after touch of madness as the sounds
Screen color 640x480 glove
- Configuration for playing live practice.
possibility to select configurations accessible by a button (but volatile memory, so you must save fd)
I have not used yet the functions of edition.
Manual clear, but not complete, I think. I came across a way to play chords to accompany the style Am7 / D (eg Maiden voyage) live, and in the manual section is incomplte.
Ergonomics gnrale trs good (but the command (s) split is not accessible by a key, you must navigate and in some cases it is not practical).
- Overall Opinion
- I for 8 days and 80 hours of use, I have not been around but I can say easily that:
+ + Sounds are outstanding (I had dozens of keyboards: wurlitzer, rhodes, DX7, Juno 60, PF 10, Clavinova, GEM ps2500 ......), some are falling down (you judge, not those in forcment mga voice), this level is 10/10, awaiting the next bit in 1024 etc. .......
+ + Styles, Varis, (3 intros, 3 for, 4 variations, a wagon, 4 multi pads ...)
Listen to the flamenco, play guitar with nylon key harmony / echo, + pads!
I would like to + intros though.
The amplification is specifically developed to tudie this machine with subwoofer (watch the walls) it does not saturate even bottom (limiter). Some find the "mdiums" less work than bass or treble, I do not believe (or not enough ear) on this point.
I do not like: lack of memory (you have a hard drive is optional).
I was considering buying a PSR 9000, expecting to find opportunities around 1500 euros, there is but when I saw and heard the TYROS I cracked: Euro 3100, not 3800!
The beautiful stand is optional (220 euros!)
Let's say that 3100 is a Q / P that I could afford, as a pure amateur. In 3800 I think I hsit or expected opportunities (in 4 years?)
If c'tait again: 100% OK, I am both Paco de Lucia, Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, Duke, DJ Abdel, Michel Legrand, Santana, Tito Puente, John Lee Hooker ..... I go back guys!N / A
