12/8/2010 [Pianos & Keyboards]
New Premium Packs and Voices now available for the Tyros4 from Yamaha MusicSoft offer users of Yamaha's flagship keyboard an extraordinary expansion on their instruments. The latest Premium Pack and Voice release will feature familiar sounds from some of the most famous keyboards of all time, as well as brilliant and expressive Super Articulation 2 Saxophone voices.
Fans of analog and early digital keyboard sounds will be delighted by the new voices from the Vintage Keyboard pack. The voices in the pack span a variety of sounds made famous by classic electronic pianos. In these new voices, Yamaha has masterfully emulated the "electro-mechanical" electronic pianos of the 60s and 70s.
In addition to the recreation of these well known electric piano sounds, this pack includes voices from two of Yamaha's most popular keyboard models, the legendary DX7 responsible for some of the most famous sounds of the 80s, and the CP80, a groundbreaking electric piano.
In all, the Vintage Keyboard pack contains 30 voices, 10 Styles, 3 MultiPads, 16 registrations, and 2 demo songs.
Two new sets of SA2 Saxophone voices are also available now. These new voices give Tyros4 users breathtakingly realistic tenor and alto saxophone sounds, complete with SA2 technology to provide extra expressive capabilities. Voices are available separately for alto and tenor sax sounds, and include pop and funk variations of each instrument.
The new Vintage Keyboard Pack and the SA2 Saxophone Voices follow up on the packs and voices released last year for the Tyros3. In addition to the forthcoming pack and voice, the Euro and US Organs Pack, the Choir and Vocals Pack, as well as the SA2 Pan Flute and Trombone voices, are all now available in new versions for the Tyros4.
Installing the Premium Packs and Voices on the Tyros4 can be done with one simple touch of a button. To use new voices, though, you will need to install expansion flash memory on the Tyros4. The Yamaha FL1024M and FL512M memory expansions are available from Yamaha dealers both in your area and on the web. For more information about installation, see our directions on Yamaha MusicSoft.
The new Packs and Voices can be purchased from Yamaha MusicSoft using a credit card or PayPal, which allows customers without credit cards to pay for purchases directly from their bank accounts.
