Continuing the legacy of the immensely popular workstation line, Tyros5 is defined by incredibly nuanced and detailed instrument Voices, studio grade digital effects and Styles so realistic, it’s like having the world’s greatest studio musicians follow your performance in real time!

This year’s models take performance to new heights, with Ensemble Voices, an incredible new feature that intelligently orchestrates brass, saxophone, woodwind and string ensembles by assigning each note in a chord to a different part in real time. For example, play a four-note chord using the "SoloQuartet" Ensemble Voice and the top note will be the 1st Violin, the note below that will be played by the 2nd Violin, the next lowest note will be the Viola and the lowest note will be Cello. It’s like having a professional orchestrator instantly turn your playing into incredible four-part arrangements.
