The Yamaha Tyros3 is a music arranger workstation that features many different voice technologies using the most appropriate one to bring out the best in each voice. All new for Yamaha Tyros3 keyboard is Super Articulation 2 which gives you detailed control of the musical expression of each Super Articulation 2 Voice, including two Articulation (ART) buttons and direct control of the real vibrato of the original instrument.

If you're looking for a pro backing band to support your performance, Tyros3 has everything you could ask for”and more. Whether you are a beginner or an accomplished professional, Styles follow your chord progressions smoothly and seamlessly, just like a live backing band.
The Styles themselves are created by reputable programmers and mixed by studio engineers to produce top-quality covering vast musical genres.

One of the best ways to check your musical progress is by recording your performance and listening back to it. With Yamaha Tyros3 this is a simple task thanks to the Easy Record feature! Simply press Record, then perform your song. Press Stop when you've finished. To hear your performance, press Start. Whether it's a piano solo, or a full ensemble using a Style, everything you do will be recorded. It couldn't be easier.

Whether you're new to keyboards or a longtime veteran, you'll find Song Creator a great benefit. There are so many ways to use Song Creator, no matter how you play. Want to concentrate on playing the melody of a song? Create a chord sequence using Chord Step Record. Or why not use Step Record to edit a song? You could correct wrong notes, timing, or even change the voices used. Fancy yourself as a Composer? Use Song Creator to build up a full 16-track sequence to produce a full orchestral score.

The onboard Hard Disk Recorder allows you to record your performance as digital audio for pristine, absolutely noise-free audio quality. With 2 stereo tracks, you can record multi-track and mix using not only the Tyros3's styles and voices, but also your voice, guitar, or other acoustic and electric instruments via the Line or Microphone inputs. If you want some background music you can transfer your favorite CD tracks onto the Hard Disk Drive and create a playlist.

As stated above, Tyros3's content has been mixed by studio engineers, using similar facilities to those found in a professional recording studio. In music production, the key to creating a great sound is how the song is mixed. Mixing doesn't only mean changing volume balances, but also items such as panning and effects settings. Tyros3's Mixing Console allows you to mix your music like a studio engineer, offering you these options and more. It is equipped with many Digital Signal Processors (DSP), each featuring dozens of different types of effects to enhance Styles, Voices, and the overall sound. Of course, Tyros3 allows full adjustment of DSP parameters providing detailed tonal control.

A USB port, conveniently located on the keyboard's front panel, facilitates easy computer connectivity for transferring song data from the Tyros3's 3.2 MB internal flash storage. The LAN port connects to Yamaha's online music portals, Internet Direct Connection, Yamaha MusicSoft, and Digital Music Notebook. Users can download different song styles, instrument voices, and upgrades to the Tyros3, along with sheet music, song books and software.

A vital component for all keyboard instruments is of course, the keyboard itself. Tyros3 has Yamaha's high-quality FSX keyboard action which is smooth, fast, and responsive. Together with the positive feel of the action, the keyboard is also fully touch-sensitive, with easily controllable initial touch, aftertouch and note off, so you can dynamically and expressively control the level of the voices with your playing strength, just as on acoustic instruments. Tyros3's voice parameters have all been individually adjusted in fine detail to match the FSX keyboards touch response, ensuring expression through touch is always smooth and progressive.

Couldn't ask for a better arranger!

By Jason Lavoie

from Raymond, MS

Comments about Yamaha Tyros3 Arranger Workstation Keyboard:

This is pretty much the perfect keyboard. It has the UI of the high-end Clavinovas, and there is practically no learning curve. The controls are natural and nearly intuitive. Sit down and start jamming, composing or recording immediately. If you've touched a home keyboard in the last 25 years, you know what to do here... yet the results are nothing but professional and superb. I have no complaints with the build quality. Plastic keeps it light, and it is nicely shaped (though a little bigger than most 61-key boards; buy a case for a 76). The sequencer is awesome and features score view with real musical notation. It will load and save standard MIDI files, and there's even an internal hard disk for seemingly limitless storage. For karaoke night, plug in a microphone and large external monitor. The price kept me from buying this for a long time. I tried settling for cheaper machines (including the PSR-S700), but I was not truly happy until I got this. You can't buy better keyboard bliss (unless you NEED 88 keys). Accessories: The Tyros stand is attractive, but it does not fold up. Likewise, the Tyros speakers look nice, but are awkward to transport (keep them at home). The music stand is glass and beautiful, but I'm not taking it anywhere as I'm afraid I might break it. If you've got the money and contemporary music is your passion or livelihood, GET IT! You will not regret it, not for a single second.

Great Keyboard but flawed

By Charles

from Allentown PA

Comments about Yamaha Tyros3 Arranger Workstation Keyboard:

The flaw with this keyboard is the keys on the end are not protected. I mean the body tapers down and the keys are exposed to possible snapping. These keys are the same keys that are in the lower end keyboard. Why do I bring this up? I use my "arranger" for jobs as a soloist. I worry everytime I pack & move it. Also, for the few upgrades... the price went ridiculously through the roof! Yes, you can go in and play them but WHO is going to by them for $4700 plus tax? $282... that's $5K!!! Like this is some sort of Fairlight. Hey Yamaha, If you are going to have a $5000 keyboard, spend the money and make it a little more road worthy like the XS6... for only $2600. You see, comparing the materials, the Tyros 3 is too high priced.... especially when musicians are trying to get work in this lame economy. So I give it a 2 star rating. 2 Stars for the guts, minus three stars for the design flaw, housing material and the price. peace
