Hard /Soft Touch Tyros 5
« on: December 27, 2017, 11:34:17 AM »
Hi Everyone

Is there a soft /hard touch response on the Tyros 5. I am sure that when I had a Tyros 2 you can adjust the touch for soft players or hard players. I cannot find it on the Tyros 5, I have checked the manual without much luck.
Can someone put me in the right direction, I want to know what setting it has been left on before i purchased this keyboard.

Thank You

Steve,
Go to Function/Controller then click  Keyboard/Panel tab for all touch settings.

Yes.  It is known as aftertouch and I believe the Tyros series keyboards do have not only aftertouch, but key vibrato as well (shake a key with your finger and it shakes the sound, like in real life).

Page 7 refers to aftertouch - I am sure there is also a more in-depth section on it as well.

Thank you Rick and Mike for the info, thank you mike for the reference manual, as I have a used Tyros I was only given the owners
manual, hence I lacked this information.

NP.  There happens to be many manuals and tutorials for the Tyros available in pdf format.  Google Tyros 5 manual and Tyros 5 tutorials and plenty comes up - just don't click on the garbage links.
