New Premium Styles: MOR Waltz & 00's Dance Pop!

This week we're releasing some Premium Styles in the Easy Listening, and Dance/Electronic catalogs! For fans of pop artists like Rhianna or Britney Spears, we've added 00's Dance Pop, which is more than enough to get the party started! MOR Waltz was designed to satisfy customers who've asked for more sweet and lofty waltz styles, so we hope you enjoy it!

Check out the demonstration videos below, or take a look at our entire catalog!

MOR Waltz
MOR Waltz is beautiful and lush! Light percussion moves the style along with a gentle tempo, offering plenty of time and space to introduce melodies. Speaking of melodies, you can craft yours using horns, big strings, piano, and orchestral flute in the one touch settings.



00's Dance Pop
This Style features a driving "four on the floor" back beat that grows in intensity and complexity over 4 variations. It's pretty much perfect for any modern dance track, with featured voices that include a variety of synth leads and chord "pads", and a nice bright piano.




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