Yamaha Tyros 5 Workstation Announced


Available in 61 key and 76 key versions the Yamaha Tyros 5 is an elite arranger keyboard with uncompromising sounds and effects.


For accompaniment the new Tyros 5 makes you sound like you have a full orchestra or band behind you, introducing a new reality with audio styles based on actual recordings of real musicians. Whether you are composing, arranging or performing it’s a powerful beast and a massive improvement on its predecessor.


The Keyboard incorporates multiple styles, including 80s rock anthem, Acoustic Blues, pop swing and even a ‘big room’ dance music style. Our personal favourite is the ‘We will rock you’ style 80s stadium rock style. Huge drums and fills with a soaring lead guitar sounds!


Yamaha’s new DSP models some classic and upfront sounds from classic British blues guitar styles to ultra-distorted sounds. The high-gain US processing makes a like-for-like reproduction of ‘Paradise City’ in the video below:


Aside from the Tyros’ new DSP and an intuitive new ensemble mode cleverly mapped across the keyboard and even a built in crossfader to blend from MIDI and audio, Yamaha have integrated plenty of other ways for expansion. Premium packs can be installed to add a wealth of sounds including middle eastern and latin styles giving you backing tracks for all world music genres.

The Tyros 5 61 is currently £3739.00 and the 76 key model is £3910.00. View the new Tyros 5 range at PMT Online here, coming to PMT Stores soon.
