Highlights of 2014

As Sinatra once sang, “It was a very good year.”

2014 gave us lots to be excited about here at Yamaha MusicSoft. We added several new product lines, and continued to enhance our existing ones, as more and more music lovers discovered all that we offer to help them achieve musical fulfillment. Here’s some of the highlights:

Printable Sheet MusicPrintable Sheet Music

We added over 50,000 instantly printable sheet music titles! This development project was one of our prime goals for 2014, and we now have a continuously updated library of sheet music for our customers, giving them a one stop shop for everything they need to make music. 

Synth Voice Libraries

In 2014, we invited owners of Yamaha synthesizers, like the Motif, to the Yamaha MusicSoft family. Over 40 voice libraries have been added to expand the sound capabilities of these amazing instruments. We instantly found musicians around the world downloading new sounds ranging from vintage 80s keyboard libraries to ethereal string banks. 

Custom Audio Backing Tracks

We had offered these amazing audio multi-track songs in the past, but in 2014 we revived the library with hundreds of new listings. If you haven’t experience them yet, you really need to check them out! Become an instant mixing engineer and remix audio tracks of popular songs performed by Nashville studio musicians and singers, then download the mix as an MP3 file. They are a must-have for drummers, singers, and anyone who wants to play along with great musicians.

Playground Sessions

This groundbreaking method to learning piano was co-created by Quincy Jones, and it gives Yamaha keyboard owners an incredible way to learn to play at home. With interactive features, hours of videos, and a large library of popular songs to learn and master, we are excited to have the opportunity to partner with Playground Sessions and offer their amazing product. 

There’s much more to come in 2015, but we can’t reveal our secrets just yet! Thanks for your support in the past year, and from all of us at Yamaha MusicSoft to all of you, we wish you a happy and healthy New Year!
