Hello,

Thanks for the forum, first time here.

I will be receiving soon the new Tyros 5 (Switzerland, fench part).
I'm already wondering how to connect the keyboard with PC (Windows 7 - 64bit) and which software to use for composing songs (Cubase ?)

Your explanations, piece of advice, tips will be most welcome.

Regards,

Geezee

Hi GeeZee.

You only need a USB (A-B) cable and connect them to both your PC and T5.
The Yamaha midi-driver can be downloaded from the Yamaha website.

Cubase recognizes the T5 as 'Digital Workstation' and off you go!

Welcome to the forum!!  I have a Tyros 5 on order too. I used PowerTracks and FL Studio with my Tyros 4 with no problems. Kla4 is correct. USB is convenient and any sequencing program should work just fine.  -charley

Thanks for your answers !

Since I am a newcomer, I need some more details please.

I want to make a composition with different parts but do not know how to do that...

My goal is to play a piano part on the Tyros 5 and then replay it while I play the strings and then with the flute and so on so as to make a whole song or composition.

Can I do that directly on the tyros 5 or do I have to record each part separately and then transfer them on the PC (with an appropriate software like for instance Cubase) ?

In fact, I would like a step by step procedure for creating a whole piece of music which can be recorded and edited.

I hope this is not too laborious or ambitous but would be very happy to be able to do that (it could probably be useful to others too).

Many thanks to all.

Geezee

I forgot to ask...

What software would you suggest for composition on PC (not too complicated).

Thanks,

I'm a huge Cubase fan/user and use it mostly for multitrack audio recording.
Cubase does MIDI-recording as well and all midi-events can be recorded/edited on you computer. There is no need to transfer data to the Tyros.

Since I use Cubase since late 80ties for me it is 'easy to use' but for new users there is a LOT to understand/learn. The best thing to do is find some help in your neighbourhood. (e.g. traing/course)

Cubase has various versions of software and you can start with the 'Elements' version, only 90,-

As far as I can see, you can connect the Tyros to your PC in three ways: Wireless LAN, MIDI and USB. Does anyone know if there are any differences? Does Cubase also recognize Tyros as a digital workstation with MIDI or wifi (my guess is "no")?
