Yamaha Tyros 5 !

« on: January 17, 2014, 12:07:47 AM »

Here's a terrific live (from Romania) Tyros 5 demo presented by Peter Baartmans    Cool

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7no76WxwGv0

I'm going to be attending the   Namm Show in Anaheim, California next week, so more excited than ever now to have the opportunity see Mr Baartmans present a similar Tyros 5 demo in the Yamaha Showroom there. I  can't play even remotely as well as Peter, but I can attest that when I sit down and play my Tyros 5 it sounds to both my ears and my audience, every bit as dynamically live and realistic as when Baartmans demos it. The beauty of Tyros 5 to me is simply being able to sit down and play it and having it sounding terrific pretty much out of the box.  This is the first Keyboard I've owned where I can honestly say that. I'm the first to admit I'm a keyboard 'player' and don't enjoy so much having to be a sound engineer, so for the first time on an arranger, I'm able to  sit down and enjoy playing it and not have to spend an inordinate amount of frustrating time tweaking it to get it to sound the way I want.

BTW, anyone else here going to be at Namm next week too?
I'll be arriving on Wednesday  but leaving on Friday around noon. Would be great to meet up with forum members there.
PM, email me, or post a reply if interested. Smiley

Hi Scott

Great find. Nice demo with good video and sound demonstrating the Tyros 5. I love Peter Baartman's demos, one of the best players around. He just needs to cut back on his sugar in his coffee or tea. Maybe a little overkill with the sound system in that size room, but it must of sounded really good being there in person.

At 1:40 this guy walks he and humbly gets taken back that there isn't a four piece Jazz band performing. I am sure with those big speakers anyone outside the room wouldn't of guessed only one single keyboard from the sound.

At 6:20 there is this guy in bright pants sitting in the front row. I think I recognize him from an earlier Tyros 5 demo video. He probably works for Fly Music and is seen later standing by the door and perhaps is going to play after Peter.

At 11:00 Peter talks about the Trombones and how they were greatly improved on the Tyros 5 from previous Tyros models. We were after Yamaha for years to give us SA2 trombones. Finally great trombones on the Tyros 5 and included in the Ensemble voices.

At 13:50 he goes into length discussing and demoing the Ensemble feature. At 14:55 I really love his rendition of the Passion Chorale (Hans Leo Hassler) using Bach harmonies while using suitable Ensemble Voices. Maybe playing the Chorale a bit too fast, but beautifully done.

For those Tyros 5 players worried about having to be a piano player or have harmony knowledge in order to use the Ensemble feature, Peter demonstrates how the Ensemble Harmony function can be set to allow all four instruments parts to play using only one note at a time with your right hand playing. The actual song with single note play starts at 17:40 with explanation starting at 17:00. I really love the Ensemble feature and how Yamaha decided to allow style auto-play at the same time.

Would of loved to hear Peter Baartman at the winter NAMM 2014, but no travelling for a while after buying my Tyros 5. Scott, maybe report back afterwords with your experiences there. I believe you also previously went to the NAMM around the time you got your Tyros 4? Sounds like a great time. I know a few forum members do make it out there. Thanks for the video link.

Regards, Marcus

Cool must have been a fun gig.
