The Tyros Organ
Creating the Tyros Organ
Richard Bower started the ball rolling back in 2005 when he created what he affectionately called his ‘Tyros Twinset’. The setup he shows is just as relevant to Tyros2, Tyros3 and Tyros4 (although the Regi-stick software that provides all the set up data on a USB stick came later).

Creating the Tyros Traditionale
In 2010 the same ‘organ’ set-up was used in conjunction with a specially made wooden cabinet by the Italian Orla Organ company. Again the actual setup is the same for all Tyros models from Tyros2 through to Tyros4. Meanwhile Richard Bower had teamed up with James Sargeant to create a piece of software called the Regi-Stick. This software provided hundreds of ready-made registrations based on the Yamaha AR100s Registration Menu. It also provided the MIDI templates bass pedal voices needed to successfully create the Tyros ‘organ’.

Creating the Tyros5 Organ
In 2015 Leigh Wilbraham compiled a guide to creating an organ set-up based on the Tyros5. This instrument didn’t conform to the previous method of loading voice data – and so a new method was needed. Yamaha technical guru Steve Marsden linked up with David Harrild of Musicland TRX Systems to create a new upgrade that enabled the Tyros5 to join the ranks of the Tyros Organ.
