      Yamaha Tyros 3 Keyboard

      We had our Tyros3 demo on the 6th October and this is what we thought ;

      "It had to be difficult for Yamaha to produce a keyboard significantly better that the Tyros2 after all its a fantastic instrument. It has to be significantly better otherwise why would anyone want to upgrade. James Sergeant was our Yamaha demonstrator for the night. James was enthusiatic from the start and did a brilliant job demonstrating the Tyros3.

      Jamess demonstration was very different from previous demonstrations that we have had from both Yamaha and other manufacturers.He briefly explained the new sampling methods, how the new voices were created and then he played, a little more explanation and comparison and then he played. The emphasis was on sound quality all the way through the demonstration. James held our undivided attention for over an hour and a half showing us the differances between the new technology and what we were used to.

      I was totally amazed when James showed us a comparison between Tyros Tyros2 and Tyros3 saxophones, I thought Tyros2 had a great saxophone until I heard the Tyros3 saxophone... it wasnt just better... it was massively better, this was true of all of the super-articulation2 voices. Tyros3 is approaching the flexibility in tone that a natural acoustic instrument achieves and I find that incredible. I love organ voices and they have been beefed up once more giving us that rich tone of organs in their heyday. The piano voice has been taken from the CVP range, other voices from Yamahas pro-music Motif series.... in total over 500 new voices... all of them better quality. It seems to me that the guys who made the Tyros3 have been round all the divisions of Yamaha and taken each departments very best sounds to create the Tyros3.

      There are plenty of new styles on the Tyros 3 and those that carry over from the Tyros 2 hae been improved and re balanced using the better voicing and technology of the of the Tyros3...by Alan Hamilton

      Our demonstrators have attended the initial preview day in May of this year and the training days in September this is what they thought :

      The Tyros 3 is all about quality of sound, the new sounds are quite stunning in how much better they are than tyros 2 which is all the more incredible considering how good tyros 2 was and still is, we all thought how are they going to beat this? But somehow they've managed it, everything thats good about tyros 2 is still there and the way you use the instrument is quite rightly the same. (don't change what aint broke).

      Of course there are subtle differences like the sliders which was an obvious improvement that should have been there in the first place, another obvious addition was an inbuilt hard drive which is now included in the price, but again the reason why people will buy the tyros 3 is that sheer quality of sound, and that same quality also has a positive impact on the backing styles which now utilise those higher quality sounds and together with additional and improved effects means that the whole accompaniement sound will be far better, even styles which have the same name as before will sound a lot better simply because they are using better sounds.

      All in all Yamaha have done a great job and you don't need me to tell you how good it is, play it and you will buy it, it's as simple as that ! ...by Justin Myerscough

      So what's new about Tyros3 ?

      Well, just about everything - far to much to detail in the space available here!
      The most unchanged aspect of the instrument is its overall appearance, because Yamaha wanted to maintain the family look, but, more importantly, maintain the operating system so owners of both the original Tyros and Tyros2 would instantly feel at home with the instrument.
      However, there are a number of important changes to the panel, the most obvious of which is the addition of 9 sliders positioned beneath the LCD screen. These sliders effect a number of different functions, depending on the feature selected, but for lovers of organ sounds, their most important function is to change the organ footages, in a similar way to traditional ‘drawbar' based instruments. This makes changing voices ‘on the fly' very easy.

      Yamaha Tyros 3 Sound Quality & Super Articulation2
      This is a musical instrument - so sound quality is all important, and Tyros3 takes the listeners sonic experience to new heights. One of the key contributors to this is the brand new Super Articulation2 voices. Super Articulation was first introduced on the Tyros2, adding many detailed musical nuances to the orchestral sounds. This has been taken to new heights with Super Articulation2.
      Each Super Articulation2 sound features a vast selection of supporting samples to the main ‘voice' sample. Depending on how you play (or if you use the new Art1 and Art2 buttons) the keyboard automatically selects one of these ‘supporting' samples to add incredible level of realism. Any of the Super Articualtion2 voices can glissando, bend and articulate, just like the real thing. However each voice responds differently, like the individual instrument. Frankly you need to hear it to believe it! This is only the beginning.
      There is a host of new sounds across every voice section of the instrument. This includes a brand new Piano voice (taken directly from a Clavinova CVP range) and a complete new organ section, with new Theatre and Jazz organ voicing and a range of new effects.

      Yamaha Tyros 3 New Styles Tyros3
      The accompaniment section has been greatly extended, offer a total of 450 styles. Any styles that have been carried over from Tyros2 have been upgraded, and many have new Intros and Endings, creating a total new musical feel.
      Digital Sound Processor
      (D.S.P.)One feature that has improved the overall sound quality is the new DSP effects. Now boasting high quality reverbs (and a host of additional effects) the new DSP blocks have enriched the quality of every section of the instrument.
      Yamaha Tyros 3 New Features
      Tyros 3 comes complete with 80GB hard drive, allowing a massive amount of storage space for registrations, additional styles/voices or recordings.

      The LCD screen uses TFT technology, making it vibrant and clear, and can be seen clearly from just about any angle. A new ‘sync start' function ensures perfect timing when engaging a multipad, while the built in LAN port allows easy connection for those using the unique Yamaha Internet Direct Connection feature.
