Totally 80's Premium Styles! Reggae & Pop!

We couldn't be more excited about our latest additions to the Premium Style catalog! Both of the new Styles are inspired by incredible hit songs from the 1980's, though endlessly versatile. We're adding mid-tempo reggae, and 80's "mall-rock" to the catalog, which should give fans of pop music some great new rhythms to play around with. It's great timing for these new Styles, as they are entirely complimentary to the new Premium Vintage Synth Pack for Tyros4, but with the pre-programmed one touch settings for voices, these new Styles sound amazing in all compatible Yamaha keyboards! That's because Yamaha Premium Styles are programmed by the same team that creates the factory installed Styles and Voices that make Yamaha an industry leader in high quality sound and keyboard instruments!

Check out the demonstration videos and detailed descriptions below:

80's UK Reggae
Inspired by UB40's smash hit; Red Red Wine, this Style has a wonderful mid-tempo reggae feel. The variation of rhythms keep things interesting, adding hand claps, and a solid kick drum to keep your song moving. Featured voices include chorus guitar, organ, steel drum, and a brass section.

80's Teen Pop
This Style has Tiffany written all over it. Perfect for her quintessential hit song I Think We're Alone Now, this style is upbeat and bouncy. The rhythm builds throughout the variations until it reaches the apex of 80's dance party groove! Featured voices included a couple of great synths, a string section, and the Yamaha grand piano!

Yamaha Premium Styles are available exclusively from Yamaha MusicSoft and Internet Direct Connection.
