Dani,

Your English is just fine, and probably a lot better than my Spanish. The Tyros2 will probably do everything you wish and much more. One of the primary benefits is there are thousands of third-party style files available for Yamaha keyboards, all of which will play well on the Tyros and Tyros2. These are styles that are in addition to the keyboard's huge number of onboard styles. However, I would urge you to locate a retailer somewhere near where you live and play the keyboard using a quality set of headphones before purchasing. The Tyos2 is a fantastic keyboard, but everyone has their own personal likes and dislikes when it comes to what they hear.

Good luck,

Gary

This sounds greater on LIONSTRASTCS MEDIASTATION
I'm playing them in two ways. One is arranger mode like Cosa de la vita, some of them with real drum loops of live drums; second I'm playing as midi files and third am played as mp3.

You are having no problems to change mode between songs.
Also real guitar can be played here. Convert of style is simple. You only check some sounds in style and styles come from your PSR500
You can convert also sounds. (As giga format if you want)
You are having up to 3 GB of RAM inside as in my option. But you can update this every day. Also internal hard disk it can be 60 GB but also 200 GB or you can use double HD.
Good sound audio board.

All is on you.

I saw also some photos there like:

More you can find on
http://www.lionstracs.com/site/

I’m having one keyboard and am something what I need. I can play all the time and every day is sounds better. I thing this is future.

dani_76_es do yourself a favour and stick with the manufacturers that are well known and you wont go wrong.
The Tyros2 will easily give you the sounds and styles for the music you are wanting to play listed above

Hi Daniel,
rock, pop etc no problem finding keyboard styles for these.

Not so sure about styles for Enya, Vangelis.
I haven't found too many
New Age_ Soundtrack type styles in any of the keyboards I've had . Maybe I've been buying the wrong brand of keyboards. haa haa

I did find a bit of New Age type stuff in Band in a Box software. They have some Soundtrack type styles, but, it's used for creating songs, not for playing styles, in realtime.

welcome to the forum.

best wishes
Rikki

I sincerely believe one of the best aspects of owning a Yamaha keyboard is the availibility of third party style files. Currently, I have more than 40,000 styles that have been converted, most are pretty darned good, many are outstanding, and some are downright incredible. There is likely more styles available for Yamaha keyboards than all other keyboards combined, and the number seems to climb daily.

Good Luck on whatever keyboard you decide upon,

Gary
