Our Top 5 User Videos - Tyros3 Premium Packs & Voices

It's been a while since we checked in to see what the Tyros3 players around the world have been creating with our Premium Packs and Voices. Judging from the many performance videos we found, they've been up to quite a lot! There is a great community of Tyros3 players out there who aren't shy about broadcasting their musical achievements, and couldn't be happier about it. Check out some of our favorite Tyros3 videos below, and feel free to let us know about your own creations in the comments - we always love to see how Yamaha's instruments come to life. After all, the voices and styles are just voices and styles - it takes a player to turn them into music.

"Ayura", a song from Yamaha Electone artist Yoshihiro Andoh, played using styles and voices from the Choir and Vocals pack. A very impressive performance that proves that you can do a lot on the Tyros3 with a little bit of tweaking and a lot of practice. This video comes to us all the way from Brazil!

This video really shows how far you can go with Premium voices and some customization - a Shostokovich waltz with the Premium SA2 Trombone voice.

This video features a great performance of a traditional Romanian song played with the SA2 pan flute. The performer has also made a recording of the same song using the Tyros3's built in pan flute voice, so you can easily compare to see how much better the SA2 voice sounds.

This brief Choir and Vocals pack demo shows how much the modulation wheel can be used to change up the sound of each voice in real time.

A great performance of the Beach Boys' "Warmth of the Sun", using voices from the Choir and Vocals pack.

Hope you enjoy the videos, and that they've inspired you to make your own.  Have a great weekend!
