The Full Story on Tyros4 Flash Memory Upgrades

With the recent release of the Tyros4, has taken the workstation keyboard to the next level. The Tyros4 gives you the power do pretty much anything you want as a musician, but with a little extra memory you can do even more. Expansion flash memory is available to make it possible for you to load your own samples and audio to create entirely new voices for the Tyros, or load Premium Packs and Voices sold on Yamaha MusicSoft.

There are two different options available for expansion: the FL512M module, which offers 512MB of new memory, and the FL1024M, which will give you a full 1GB.

So how do you go about getting a hold of the expansion memory? It's available from the same places you'll find the Tyros4: Yamaha keyboard dealers and select online stores. If you need help locating a store that's carrying the expansion modules, and you're in the US, you can use this dealer locator to find a dealer near you. If you're not in the US, there are other resources you can use to find a local dealer. Take a look below:
Once you've got the flash expansion memory, it's easy to install it in the Tyros4.  For detailed installation directions, you should consult page 108 of the Tyros4 manual, which you can find here.
