New in Tyros2 is Super Articulation, bringing that audible and physical MegaVoice authenticity to the melody that you play, with 40 voices. The 61-key Tyros2 comes standard with 4 MB, but offers up to 1 GB of sample/playback capability (Wave, AIFF), and the ability to capture performances with optional audio rendering hard disk recording capability.

Additional improvements now enable Tyros2 to function not only as a stand-alone unit, but also as a component of a computer-based music production system, including USB MIDI ports and new USB "To Device" for connecting to peripheral storage devices. With Yamaha's broadband Internet Direct Connection feature, song data and content can be downloaded directly from the Internet. The onboard VGA display screen can be mirrored to an RGB/Video output allowing Tyros2 to display functions directly to an external computer monitor.

Yamaha has also responded to customers' requests for a more professional keyboard with a newly-designed action that is fast, smooth and responsive. Currently, it is the only action of its kind to be offered on any Yamaha keyboard product.
