Forget any keyboard you’ve heard before; the sound of Tyros5 is breathtakingly real.


Tyros5 is packed with features for composing, arranging and live performance. There are literally hundreds of instrument sounds and virtually any style of music can be performed instantly. Multi-part arrangements can be created with ease and there are professional studio effects that also can be used by vocalists and instrumentalists. With onboard digital recording, Tyros5 has everything to help you produce complete music projects with incredible audio quality.

Pianists will feel instantly at home thanks to the 76 note keyboard option while organists and synthesizer players have whole sections devoted to these instruments. The unique sound of classic guitar amps can be modelled virtually and audio tracks can be manipulated in real-time.

But what makes Tyros different from other keyboards is how real it sounds. For example, drum tracks are actual recordings of top session musicians playing live, so none of the original feel of the performance is lost. And Tyros5 is so advanced that different instrument sounds can be assigned to each note of a chord as the player performs, perfectly recreating the sound of several musicians playing together.

Tyros5 is the complete workstation for the home, studio or stage and gives everyone the ability to turn their musical ideas into reality. Forget any keyboard you’ve heard before and listen to Tyros5.

Compose, Arrange and Perform – with Tyros5 you can do it all.
