Yamaha has introduced Tyros2, its flagship arranger workstation with optional hard disk recording.
The 61-key Tyros2 comes standard with 4 MB, but offers up to 1 GB of sample/playback capability (Wave, AIFF), and the ability to capture performances with optional audio rendering hard disk recording capability.
Additional improvements now enable Tyros2 to function not only as a stand-alone unit, but also as a component of a computer-based music production system, including USB MIDI ports and new USB “To Device” for connecting to peripheral storage devices. With Yamaha’s broadband Internet Direct Connection feature, song data and content can be downloaded directly from the Internet. The onboard VGA display screen can be mirrored to an RGB/Video output allowing Tyros2 to display functions directly to an external computer monitor.
Tyros2 will be available in November 2005 at an MSRP of $4,095.
