Newsletter Introduction - James Woodcock


Well without a doubt it has certainly been a busy couple of weeks. In fact for me a busy couple of months getting the site ready for the re-launch you should be now enjoying. Tyros 2 has shocked and amazed, and although there are the usual doubters around, the overall consensus is that the Tyros 2 is a worthy investment even if we have to break open the piggy bank.

As the Tyros 2 is a major event in Yamaha's portfolio of technical achievements, I thought it was only fair to send out a special edition Tyros 2 newsletter so we can all take a deep breath and catch up on the latest information.

Do not forget, if you have any comments regarding the Tyros 2 that you would like to be considered for our future radio show, you can call our voicemail service on 0207 193 3092.

Music Finder Non-Cryptic Song Titles Including New Tyros 2!

Music Finder which is included with many Yamaha keyboards and Digital Pianos provides a very quick way of setting up your instrument with a style, voice and tempo that will suit a particular song.

Recording and Sharing your Performances

For the musician, no matter what your skill level, to record your performance and share your work is one of the most exciting pleasures as a player. There is nothing quite like receiving feedback and hearing how well you have played or interpreted a piece while also giving yourself the opportunity to analyze your own work.

Recording to an Audio CD is one of the best ways to share music in person or if you wish you can also take your recording and convert to a compressed format to share over the internet to a far greater audience.

In this extensive article, we show you how to capture the audio, which cables you will need, how to burn to an Audio CD and even how to compress to *.mp3 format.
