Midi Workshop Video #4: The Vocal Harmonizer & Yamaha MIDI!

Our Midi Workshop Video Series already includes videos that will show you how to Mute Tracks In A Midi File, Re-voice And Save Midi Songs, and how to Use Yamaha Midi Files With Yamaha Styles. Today we release the fourth installment in our Midi Workshop Video Series. This video is a fun one! Here we talk about the Vocal Harmonizer feature that is built into Yamaha Arranger/Workstations and modern Clavinovas! The Vocal Harmonizer works with Yamaha MIDI files that contain chord data. When the Vocal Harmonizer is on, the instrument will analyze the chord data within the MIDI file and automatically generate vocal harmonies in the key of the song you are playing! All you have to do is connect a microphone to your instrument, and sing your favorite song! Your Yamaha Arranger or Clavinova will do the rest. Check out the latest Midi Workshop Video below. I had so much fun playing with a few of the different Vocal Harmony effects on the Tyros4 that I almost started laughing while singing Elton John's "Tiny Dancer"!
