The Tyros 4 new Super Articulation pianos add more dynamic layers along with body resonance and hammer noise to create what can only be classed as a truly stunning piano, especially for a keyboard. The piano sounds are now Super Articulation sounds. Yamaha have also changed the velocity curve i.e., when you are playing the new sounds the dynamics are better to control and more naturally responsive than ever before. There are a lot of new sounds to the Tyros 4 and Yamaha has enhanced certain areas that had been long overdue and this next-generation Tyros can reproduce instruments and arrangements from over 500 different styles of music from around the world with the press of a button. Additionally, you can also play the piano on its own without any other sounds or styles playing as the piano sound has being very well enhanced on the Tyros 4. The new 70 piece string/orchestra is amazing. With more accurate sampling and sound design, Yamaha have split the orchestral layers up the keyboard from bass through to violins so as you play the 61- note keyboard, it sounds as if a true orchestra is playing. Another newly enhanced feature is the Vocal Harmony 2 (VH2), using a new proper balanced TRS input, the new harmonizer breaks boundaries into new levels of quality and features. With Synth Vocoder features, now the vocoder will make an electronic emulation of your voice controlled by the notes you are playing and this is an icing on the cake. And with a host of uses and especially with the new high quality DSP processing on vocal section it truly topped off the Yamaha Tyros 4.
The Yamaha Tyros 4 is simply powerful. After two years of development Yamaha has done it again. And the new arranger workstation can simply blows the Tyros 3 away. If you are still doubtful about the Tyros 4 perhaps, you have not hear the keyboard or you could not hear what everyone else can hear. The portable keyboard weigh merely 14.5 kg.
