Voices – Playing the Keyboard –
The Harmony/Echo types are divided into the following groups, depending on the
particular effect applied.
Harmony Types
These types apply the harmony effect to notes played in the right-hand section of the
keyboard according to the chord specified in the left-hand section of the keyboard.
(Note that the “1+5” and “Octave” settings are not affected by the chord.)
Multi Assign Type
This type applies a special effect to chords played in the right-hand section of the
keyboard.
Echo Types
These types apply echo effects to notes played in the right-hand section of the keyboard in time with the currently set tempo.
 Harmony Types
When one of the Harmony Types is selected, the Harmony effect is applied to the
note played in the right-hand section of the keyboard according to the type
selected above and the chord specified in the chord section of the keyboard shown
below.

 Multi Assign Type
The Multi Assign effect automatically assigns notes played simultaneously on the
right-hand section of the keyboard to separate parts (Voices). For example, if you
play three consecutive notes, the first is played by the RIGHT 1 Voice, the second
by the RIGHT 2 Voice, and the third by the RIGHT 3 Voice. The Multi Assign
effect is not affected by the [ACMP] and LEFT part on/off status.
 Echo Types
When one of the Echo Types is selected, the corresponding effect (echo, tremolo,
trill) is applied to the note played in the right-hand section of the keyboard in time
with the currently set tempo, regardless of the [ACMP] and the LEFT part on/off
status. Keep in mind that Trill works when you hold down two notes on the keyboard simultaneously (last two notes if more than two notes are held), and it plays
those notes alternately.
4
Use the [4 ]–[8 ] buttons to select various Harmony/
Echo settings.
The available settings differ depending on the Harmony/Echo type.
8
[4 ]
VOLUME
This parameter is available for all types with the exception of “Multi Assign.” It determines the level of the harmony/echo notes generated by the Harmony/Echo effect.
[5 ]
SPEED
This parameter is only available when Echo, Tremolo, or Trill is selected in Type
above. It determines the speed of the Echo, Tremolo, and Trill effects.
[6 ]
ASSIGN
This parameter is available for all types with the exception of “Multi Assign.” This
lets you determine the keyboard part via which the harmony/echo notes will be
sounded.
[7 ]
CHORD NOTE
ONLY
This parameter is available when one of the Harmony Types is selected. When this is
set to “ON,” the Harmony effect is applied only to the note (played in the right-hand
section of the keyboard) that belongs to a chord played in the chord section of the keyboard.
[8 ]
TOUCH LIMIT
This parameter is available for all types with the exception of “Multi Assign.” It determines the lowest velocity value at which the harmony note will sound. This allows
you to selectively apply the harmony by your playing strength, letting you create harmony accents in the melody. The harmony effect is applied when you play the key
strongly (above the set value).

The tuning of each note for the currently
selected scale is shown.
 Preset Scale types
EQUAL
The pitch range of each octave is divided equally into twelve parts, with each half-step evenly
spaced in pitch. This is the most commonly used tuning in music today.
PURE MAJOR,
PURE MINOR
These tunings preserve the pure mathematical intervals of each scale, especially for triad chords
(root, third, fifth). You can hear this best in actual vocal harmonies—such as choirs and a cappella
singing.
PYTHAGOREAN
This scale was devised by the famous Greek philosopher and is created from a series of perfect
fifths, which are collapsed into a single octave. The 3rd in this tuning are slightly unstable, but the
4th and 5th are beautiful and suitable for some leads.
MEAN-TONE
This scale was created as an improvement on the Pythagorean scale, by making the major third
interval more “in tune.” It was especially popular from the 16th century to the 18th century. Handel, among others, used this scale.
WERCKMEISTER,
KIRNBERGER
This composite scale combines the Werckmeister and Kirnberger systems, which were themselves
improvements on the mean-tone and Pythagorean scales. The main feature of this scale is that each
key has its own unique character. The scale was used extensively during the time of Bach and
Beethoven, and even now it is often used when performing period music on the harpsichord.
ARABIC1,
ARABIC2
Use these tunings when playing Arabic music.

Creating Custom Voices (Voice Creator)
The powerful Voice Creator feature lets you create your own original Voices, Normal Voices (page 20) and Drum Voices
(page 24) by using your favorite Wave files (audio samples in WAV or AIFF format).
In Drum Voice creating, you can also use the instruments (drum/percussion) sound assigned to each key of the Preset
Drum Voices.
First, import Wave files from a USB storage device or hard disk drive to the optional flash memory expansion module.
Second, assign the Wave to the Element (Normal Voice) or Key (Drum Voice).
Finally, store the Voice as a Custom Voice.
1
Voices – Playing the Keyboard –
If you want to create Drum Voices by using the instruments of Preset Drum Voices, you can skip the next section
“Importing the Wave Data to the Optional Expansion Module” and proceed to “Creating Drum Voices (Custom Drum
Voice)” on page 24.
Importing the Wave Data to the Optional Expansion Module
1
Install the expansion module to the Tyros4.
For information on installation, refer to the Appendix section in the Owner’s Manual.
2
Prepare the Wave data you’ll be using for the new Voice.
Only WAV or AIFF format data can be used for the Voice Creator.
We recommend that you store the files to a single folder of a USB storage device
or hard disk drive.
Notes for Available Wave Files
• This instrument cannot recognize the extension .aiff. When you use an AIFF
file, change the extension to .aif.
• Only use uncompressed files.
• Wave data used for the Voice Creator can be of any sample rate or bit resolution. However, all Wave data of a resolution other than 16-bit is automatically converted to 16-bit resolution after being loaded.
• Only use Wave data having a frequency of 44100 Hz. Otherwise, the data
may not play back at the correct pitch.
• Voice Creator supports and recognizes loops in the Wave data, letting you
use up to one loop in each Wave file. (Some sample libraries have loops
already programmed into the data; you can also use Wave (audio) editing
software to program loops yourself. Keep in mind however, that multiple
loops are not supported.)
• Audio files recorded with Multi Track recording of the Audio Recorder/
Player function (.aud) cannot be used as is with the Voice Creator. If you
want to use an .aud file, mix down the file in .wav data format. For information on the mixdown operation, refer to Chapter 7 in the Owner’s Manual.

Creating Normal Voices (Custom Voice)
By assigning Wave files, you can create your original Voices—not only create from scratch, but also add Waves to the
existing Voices. A Voice consists of eight elements and you need to assign Wave files to each element (more than two
Waves can be assigned to one element).
The resulting Voice is called a Custom Voice and can be selected and played in the same way as all other Tyros4 Voices.

CENTER KEY
This determines the key to which the original pitch of the sound is assigned. When
Fixed Pitch (above) is set to OFF, keys below the Center Key play the sound progressively lower in pitch, while keys above play the sound progressively higher. Normally,
you’ll want to make sure that this is the same as the original sound; for example, if the
original pitch of the audio was at C3, set Center Key to C3 for best results. When
Fixed Pitch (above) is set to ON, this has no effect. You can specify this setting
directly from the keyboard by simultaneously holding down the [2 ] (DIRECT
KEY) button and pressing the desired key on the keyboard.

Tyros4 Reference Manual
Chord Fingering Types
SINGLE FINGER
Makes it simple to produce orchestrated accompaniment using major, seventh, minor and
minor-seventh chords by pressing a minimum number of keys on the Chord section of the keyboard. This type is available only for Style playback.
The abbreviated chord fingerings described below are used:
C
For a major chord, press
the root key only.
Cm
For a minor chord,
simultaneously press the
root key and a black key
to its left.
C7
Cm 7
For a seventh chord, simultaneously press the root key
and a white key to its left.
For a minor-seventh chord,
simultaneously press the root
key and both a white and
black key to its left.
Automatically detects Single Finger or Fingered chord fingerings, so you can use either type of
fingering without having to switch fingering types.
FINGERED
Lets you finger your own chords on the chord section of the keyboard, while the instrument
supplies appropriately orchestrated rhythm, bass, and chord accompaniment in the selected
Style. The Fingered type recognizes the various chord types which are listed on the Data List
available at the Yamaha website and can be looked up using the Chord Tutor function on
page 34.
FINGERED ON BASS
Accepts the same fingerings as Fingered, but the lowest note played in the Chord section of the
keyboard is used as the bass note, allowing you to play “on bass” chords. (In the Fingered
mode, the root of the chord is always used as the bass note.)
FULL KEYBOARD
Detects chords in the entire key range. Chords are detected in a way similar to Fingered, even
if you split the notes between your left and right hands—for example, playing a bass note with
your left hand and a chord with your right, or by playing a chord with your left hand and a melody note with your right.
AI FINGERED
Basically the same as Fingered, with the exception that less than three notes can be played to
indicate the chords (based on the previously played chord, etc.).
2
Styles – Playing Rhythm and Accompaniment –
MULTI FINGER
NOTE
“AI” stands for “Artificial Intelligence.”
AI FULL KEYBOARD
When this advanced fingering type is engaged, the instrument will automatically create appropriate accompaniment while you play just about anything, anywhere on the keyboard using
both hands. You don’t have to worry about specifying the Style chords. Although the AI Full
Keyboard type is designed to work with many songs, some arrangements may not be suitable
for use with this feature. This type is similar to Full Keyboard, with the exception that less than
three notes can be played to indicate the chords (based on the previously played chord, etc.).
9th, 11th and 13th chords cannot be played. This type is available only for Style playback.

STOP ACMP
When [ACMP] is turned on and [SYNC START] is off, you can play chords in the
chord section of the keyboard with the Style stopped, and still hear the accompaniment chord. In this condition—called “Stop Accompaniment”—any valid chord fingerings are recognized and the chord root/type are shown in the display. Here, you can
determine whether the chord played in the chord section will sound or not in the Stop
Accompaniment status.
OFF: The chord played in the chord section will not sound.
STYLE: The chord played in the chord section will sound via the Voices for the Pad
part and the Bass channel of the selected Style.
FIXED: The chord played in the chord section will sound via the specified Voice,
regardless of the selected Style.
NOTE
When the selected Style contains MegaVoices, unexpected sounds may result when this is set to “STYLE.”
NOTE
When you record a song, the chord detected by playing the Stop Accompaniment can be recorded regardless of the setting here. Please note that both the Voice that is sounded and the chord data will be recorded
when set to “STYLE,” and only the chord data will be recorded when set to “OFF” or “FIXED.”

Creating/Editing Styles (Style Creator)
Styles are made up of the different sections (Intro, Main, Ending, etc.) and each section has eight separate channels. With
the Style Creator feature, you can create a Style by separately recording the channels, or by importing pattern data from
other existing Styles.
Sections
Channels
You can use one of the three different methods described below to create a Style. The created Style can also be edited.
• Realtime Recording: This method lets you record the Style by simply playing the keyboard. See page 41.
• Step Recording: This method lets you enter each note individually. See page 44.
• Style Assembly: This method lets you create a composite Style by combining various patterns from the internal preset
Styles or Styles you have already created. See page 44.
Call up the operation display.
[DIGITAL RECORDING]  [B] STYLE CREATOR
There are six Pages (tabs) in the Style Creator display.
• BASIC....................... Creates the basic settings of the Style. You can also record

• ASSEMBLY ............. Mixes the various parts (channels) from preset Styles or
already created Style to create a new Style (Style Assembly). See page 44.
• GROOVE ................. Changes the rhythmic feel of your created Style. See
page 46.
• CHANNEL ............... Edits data for each channel—quantizing, changing velocity, etc. See page 48.
• PARAMETER ......... Changes the settings related for Style File Format. See

Tyros4 Reference Manual
NOTE
The Style files created on the Tyros4 can
only be played back on instruments
which are compatible with SFF GE.
Realtime Recording
In the BASIC Page, you can create a single Style by recording the individual channels one-by-one, using realtime recording.
Realtime Recording Characteristics—Loop Recording and Overdub Recording
 Loop Recording
Style playback repeats the rhythm patterns of several measures in a “loop,” and Style recording is also done
using loops. For example, if you start recording with a two-measure MAIN section, the two measures are
repeatedly recorded. Notes that you record will play back from the next repetition (loop), letting you record
while hearing previously recorded material.
 Overdub Recording

When you want to create a Style based on an existing Style,
select the desired Style to serve as the basis for recording/editing before call up the Style Creator display.

Call up the operation display.
Styles – Playing Rhythm and Accompaniment –
This method records new material to a channel already containing recorded data, without deleting the original data. In
Style recording, the recorded data is not deleted, except when using functions such as Rhythm Clear (page 43) and Delete
(page 42). For example, if you start recording with a two-measure MAIN section, the two measures are repeated many
times. Notes that you record will play back from the next repetition, letting you overdub new material to the loop while
hearing previously recorded material.
When creating a Style based on an existing internal Style, overdub recording is applied only to the rhythm channels. For all
other channels (except rhythm), you need to delete the original data before recording.

Step Recording
In the EDIT Page, you can record notes with absolutely precise timing. This Step Recording procedure is essentially the
same as that for Song Recording (page 61) with the exception of the points listed below:
• In the Song Creator, the End Mark position can be changed freely; in the Style Creator, it cannot be changed. This is
because the length of the Style is automatically fixed, depending on the selected section. For example, if you create a
Style based on a section of four measures length, the End Mark position is automatically set to the end of the fourth
measure, and cannot be changed in the Step Recording display.
• Recording channels can be changed in the Song Creator 1-16 tab display; however, they cannot be changed in the Style
Creator. Select the recording channel in the BASIC tab display.
• In the Style Creator, the channel data can be entered and System Exclusive data can be edited (delete, copy, or move).
You can switch between the two by pressing the [F] button. However, Chord, Lyrics, and System Exclusive data cannot
be entered.

subtle shifts in the timing (clock) of the Style. The Groove settings are applied to
all channels of the selected Style.
[1 ]/
[2 ]
ORIGINAL BEAT
Specifies the beats to which Groove timing is to be applied. In other words, if “8

CONVERTER
Actually changes the timing of the beats (specified in the ORIGINAL BEAT parameter above) to the selected value. For example, when ORIGINAL BEAT is set to “8

to 8th-note triplet timing. The “16A” and “16B” Beat Converter which appear when
ORIGINAL BEAT is set to “12 Beat” are variations on a basic 16th-note setting.
[5 ]/
[6 ]
SWING
Produces a “swing” feel by shifting the timing of the back beats, depending on the
ORIGINAL BEAT parameter above. For example, if the specified ORIGINAL BEAT
value is “8 Beat”, the Swing parameter will selectively delay the 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th
beats of each measure to create a swing feel. The settings “A” through “E” produce
different degrees of swing, with “A” being the most subtle and “E” being the most
pronounced.
[7 ]/
[8 ]
FINE
Selects a variety of Groove “templates” to be applied to the selected section. The
“PUSH” settings cause certain beats to be played early, while “HEAVY” settings
delay the timing of certain beats. The numbered settings (2, 3, 4, 5) determine which
beats are to be affected. All beats up to the specified beat—but not including the first
beat—will be played early or delayed (for example, the 2nd and 3rd beats, if “3” is
selected). In all cases, “A” types produce minimum effect, “B” types produce medium
effect, and “C” types produce maximum effect.

Making Style File Format Settings
The Style File Format (SFF) combines all of Yamaha’s auto accompaniment (Style playback) know-how into a single
unified format. By using the Style Creator, you can take advantage of the power of the SFF format and freely create your
own Styles.
The chart shown below indicates the process by which the Style is played back. (This does not apply to the rhythm track.)
These parameters can be set via the Style Creator feature, in the PARAMETER Page.
Source Pattern settings—SOURCE (PLAY) ROOT/CHORD (page 50)
The Style data is appropriately converted depending on chord changes you make during your performance.
You can create the “Source Pattern” with the Style Creator, which determines how the played chord will be
converted. Here the “Source Chord” (page 50) can be set, allowing you to record accompaniment channels.

Chord change via the chord section of the keyboard.
Styles – Playing Rhythm and Accompaniment –
Note Transposition settings—NTR and NTT (page 51)
This parameter group features two parameters that determine how the notes of the Source Pattern are to be
converted in response to chord changes,
Other settings—HIGH KEY, NOTE LIMIT and RTR (page 52)
Using the parameters of this group, you can fine-tune how Style playback responds to the chords you play. For
example, the Note Limit parameter allows you to have the Voices of the Style sound as realistic as possible by
shifting the pitch to an authentic range—ensuring that no notes sound outside the natural range of the actual
instrument (e.g., high bass sounds or low piccolo sounds).
Output
The Tyros4’s Styles are compatible with SFF GE—an enhanced format of the original SFF
with especially rich, expressive guitar parts.

ROOT FIXED
When the root note is transposed, the interval between
notes is maintained. For example, the notes C3, E3 and
G3 in the key of C become F3, A3 and C4 when they
are transposed to F. Use this setting for channels that
contain melody lines.
This is exclusively for transposing guitar accompaniment. Notes are transposed to approximate
the chords played with natural guitar fingering.
NTT (Note Transposition Table)
When NTR is set to ROOT TRANS or ROOT FIXED
BYPASS
When NTR is set to ROOT FIXED, the transposition table used does not do any note conversion. When NTR is set to ROOT TRANS, the table used only converts the notes by maintaining the pitch relationship between notes.
MELODY
Suitable for melody line transposition. Use this for melody channels such as Phrase 1 and
Phrase 2.
CHORD
Suitable for chordal parts transposition. Use this for the Chord 1 and Chord 2 channels, especially when they contain piano or guitar-like chordal parts.
MELODIC MINOR
When the played chord changes from a major to a minor chord, this table lowers the third interval in the scale by a semitone. When the chord changes from a minor to a major chord, the
minor third interval is raised by a semitone. Other notes are not changed. Use this for melody
channels of Sections which respond only to major/minor chords, such as Intros and Endings.
MELODIC MINOR

In addition to the Melodic Minor transposition above, augmented and diminished chords affect
the 5th note of the Source Pattern.
HARMONIC
MINOR
When the played chord changes from a major to a minor chord, this table lowers the third and
sixth intervals in the scale by a semitone. When the chord changes from a minor to a major
chord, the minor third and flatted sixth intervals are raised by a semitone. Other notes are not
changed. Use this for chord channels of Sections which respond only to major/minor chords,
such as Intros and Endings.
HARMONIC
MINOR 5th
In addition to the Harmonic Minor transposition above, augmented and diminished chords
affect the 5th note of the Source pattern.
NATURAL MINOR
When the played chord changes from a major to a minor chord, this table lowers the third,
sixth and seventh intervals in the scale by a semitone. When the chord changes from a minor to
a major chord, the minor third, flatted sixth and flatted seventh intervals are raised by a semitone. Other notes are not changed. Use this for chord channels of Sections which respond only
to a Major/minor chord such as Intros and Endings.

DORIAN
When the played chord changes from a major to a minor chord, this table lowers the third and
seventh intervals in the scale by a semitone. When the chord changes from a minor to a major
chord, the minor third and flatted seventh intervals are raised by a semitone. Other notes are
not changed. Use this for chord channels of Sections which respond only to a Major/minor

ALL-PURPOSE
This table covers both strummed- and arpeggio-played sound.
STROKE
Suitable for stroke-played sound of the guitar. Some notes may sound as if it is muted—this is
normal condition when the chord is played on guitar by stroke.
ARPEGGIO
Suitable for arpeggio-played sound of the guitar. Using this table, four notes arpeggio sounds
most beautiful.

1 QUANTIZE
The Quantize function allows you to align the timing of all the notes in a channel.
For example, if you record the musical phrase shown at right, you may not play it
with absolute precision, and your performance may have been slightly ahead of or
behind the precise timing. Quantize is a convenient way of correcting for this.
[2 ]/
[3 ]
CHANNEL
Determines which MIDI channel in the Song data is to be quantized.
[4 ]–
[6 ]
SIZE
Selects the quantize size (resolution). For optimum results, you should set the Quantize size to the shortest note value in the channel. For example, if eighth notes are the
shortest in the channel, you should use eighth note as the Quantize size.

Songs – Recording Your Performances and Creating Songs –
1/4 note
The three Quantize settings marked with asterisks (*) are exceptionally convenient,
since they allow you to quantize two different note values at the same time. For example, when the straight eighth notes and eighth notes triplet are contained in the same
channel, if you quantize by the straight eighth notes, all notes in the channel are quantized to straight eighth notes—completely eliminating any triplet feel. However, if you
use the eighth note + eighth note triplet setting, both the straight and triplet notes will
be quantized correctly.
[7 ]/
[8 ]
STRENGTH
Determines how strongly the notes will be quantized. A setting of 100% produces
exact timing. If a value less than 100% is selected, notes will be moved toward the
specified quantization beats according to the specified percentage. Applying less than
100% quantization lets you preserve some of the “human” feel in the recording.

Editing Song Position Markers
This section covers two additional Marker-related features and details. For basic information on using the Markers for
jump playback and loop playback, refer to the Owner’s Manual.
 Jump Markers
The Markers explained in the Owner’s Manual are also called “Jump Markers.” In the
Event List display, they are indicated as “SPJ-01”–”SPJ-04” (page 74). In the Event List,
they can be moved freely to other positions and can even copied to create identical Marker
numbers at other positions. When the same Marker number is contained at different locations in the Song, the latest occurring one is used as a “Loop End Marker” (below).
 Loop End Marker
Loop End Markers can be used for putting additional Markers in Song data, providing
even greater versatility. Creating a Loop End Marker is done within the Event List (and
not with the [SP 1]–[SP 4] buttons on the panel), by simply copying one “SPJ” Jump
Marker event to another position in the Song.
For basic information on loop playback between successive Jump Markers, refer to the
Owner’s Manual.
The examples below show how Loop End Markers can be used in Song playback.
Example 1
Top of the
song
[SPJ-01]
[SPJ-01]
[SPJ-02]
[SPJ-03]
[SPJ-04]
End of the
song
• If the Song is playing back between the two SPJ-01 points, turning on [LOOP] will
result in a playback loop between those points.
• If the Song is playing back between the second SPJ-01 and SPJ-02 and [LOOP] is
turned on, playback jumps back to the first SPJ-01 and loops between two SPJ-01
points.
Example 2
Top of the
song
[SPJ-01]
[SPJ-02]
[SPJ-01]
[SPJ-03]
[SPJ-04]
End of the
song
• If the Song is playing back between SPJ-02 and the second SPJ-01, turning on [LOOP]
will result in a playback loop between those points.
• If the [LOOP] button is turned on while the Song is playing back between the top of
the Song and SPJ-02, playback will loop between SPJ-01 and SPJ-02.
• If the Song is playing back between the second SPJ-01 and SPJ-03 and [LOOP] is
turned on, playback jumps back to SPJ-02 and loops between SPJ-02 and the second
SPJ-01 (Loop End Marker).
In the examples above, the actual data of the Loop End Marker is identical to the event it
was copied from—only the location of the copied Marker provides it with this different
function.
In Song playback, the markers formatted as “SPJ-xxxxx” (xxxxx: any character except
01–04 and any number of letters is OK) are handled as Loop End Markers. Since the
Event List in the Song Creator function does not let you freely name Markers, the instructions above are recommended for creating new Markers. However, with sequence software
on a computer, you can create new Markers and assign appropriate names to them. By
naming Markers in this way, you can easily distinguish between Loop End Markers and
Jump Markers in the Event List.
76
Tyros4 Reference Manual
NOTE
Loop playback problems may occur if
successive Markers are too close to one
another.
NOTE
When the effect settings of the jump
destination (the position you’re jumping

(1) Normalize
Normalize raises the volume of the recorded audio to the optimum level. Use this to make the recorded audio as loud as
possible, without distortion. Technically, this operation scans the recorded file for the highest level, then raises the volume of the entire file so that the highest peak is set to the maximum, non-distorting level. Normalization is calculated for
the loudest signal found in either channel of the stereo recording and the same gain is applied to both channels.

Re-recording the Multi Track Recording File
The created Multi Track recording data can be re-recorded in the following five ways.
• Replace the whole data: NORMAL REC ........................................................See below
• Mix the recorded data: NORMAL REC (PLUS PLAYBACK).......................See below
• Replace a certain range of the data: PUNCH IN/OUT.................................See page 90
• Overdub a certain range of the data: PUNCH IN/OUT (MERGE) ..............See page 90
• Merge the Main and Sub tracks to the Main track: BOUNCE

NOTE
Re-recording of the data repeatedly will
result in deterioration of the sound
quality.
NOTICE
The data is automatically saved in
the internal HDD, but you want to
backup your data before rerecording. Copying is the easiest
way to do this. However, since
copying within a folder in the HDD
is not possible, you need to create a new folder. For details on
file management, refer to the
Owner’s Manual.
NORMAL REC / NORMAL REC (PLUS PLAYBACK)
You can replace the whole audio data of a track by NORMAL REC or mix the audio data
with the previous one by NORMAL REC (PLUS PLAYBACK). The NORMAL REC
(PLUS PLAYBACK) method does not add any tracks but simply mixes the new recording
to the existing data. After stopping recording, the data will be erased from the stop point.
1
Execute Steps 1–2 in “Editing the Recorded Data (Multi Track
Recording File)” on page 87 to select the recorded data to be
re-recorded.
2
Use the [F] (TRACK SELECT) button to select the track to be rerecorded.
NOTE
Since you will be overdubbing parts
onto this audio, it’s best to keep the first
recording simple. For example, you may
want to record just a rhythm pattern
(such as by playing back a Style) or a
simple bass riff over which you can add
other parts.

undo the NORMAL REC/NORMAL REC (PLUS PLAYBACK) operation by
pressing the [G] (UNDO) button.
NOTE
The Audio Recorder/Player automatically reduces the level of the previous
track by a certain, slight amount to
accommodate the new recording. This
is done to minimize possible distortion.
You can use the Normalize effect to
maximize the volume of the overall
sound. For details, see page 88.
PUNCH IN OUT / PUNCH IN OUT (MERGE)
This method of recording can only be used on an existing recording. It allows you to rerecord over a specific part of the already-recorded material. You can replace the original
part with the new recording by PUNCH IN/OUT, or keeping the original and mixing it
with the new by PUNCH IN/OUT (MERGE). This lets you either correct a mistake in the
recording or overdub new parts onto the original recording.
Keep in mind that the parts before and after the Punch In/Out section are not recorded over
and remain as the original data—they play back normally to guide you in and out of the
recording.

NOTICE
The data is automatically saved in
the internal HDD, but you want to
backup your data before rerecording. Copying is the easiest
way to do this. However, since
copying within a folder in the HDD
is not possible, you need to create a new folder. For details on
file management, refer to the
Owner’s Manual.
Playlist Mode
The Playlist is a convenient feature within the Audio Recorder/Player that lets you collect
and organize audio files (Simple and Multi Track files) for automatic playback in “jukebox” fashion. The Playlist mode can be active in the background (for example, when the
Main display is selected), letting you play the listed files whenever you wish during your
performance.
The “Multi/Simple/Playlist” indicator at the upper left of the display shows whether the
Audio Recorder/Player is set to the Multi/Simple mode (playback of a single file) or the
Playlist mode (automatic playback of multiple files).
NOTE
The Simple and Multi Track files can be
added to the Playlist, and from within
the Playlist mode, the Simple and Multi
Track files can be freely played back.
Creating a Playlist
Once you have a number of audio files on the internal hard disk drive, you can add those
files to the Playlist. The files can be put in any order and can be entered any number of
times (in other words, a single file can have multiple instances in a Playlist).
1

EQ LOW
Boosts or attenuates the low EQ band for each part.
Equalizer (also called “EQ”) is a sound processor that divides the frequency spectrum into
multiple bands that can be boosted or cut as required to tailor the overall frequency
response. Usually an equalizer is used to correct the sound from speakers to match the special character of the room. For example, you can cut some of the low range frequencies
when playing in large spaces where the sound is too “boomy,” or boost the high frequencies in rooms and close spaces where the sound is relatively “dead” and free of echoes.
The Tyros4 possesses a high grade five-band digital EQ. With this function, a final
effect—tone control—can be added to the output of your instrument. You can select one of
the five preset EQ settings in the EQ display. You can even create your own custom EQ
settings by adjusting the frequency bands, and save the settings to one of two User Master
EQ types.

played on the keyboard have a longer sustain. Releasing the pedal immediately stops (damps)
any sustained notes. You can turn this pedal function on or off for each keyboard part on this
display.
SOSTENUTO
Allows you to use a pedal to control the Sostenuto effect. If you play a note or chord on the
keyboard and press the pedal while holding the note(s), the notes will sustain as long as the
pedal is held. However, all subsequent notes will not sustain. This makes it possible to sustain
a chord, for example, while other notes are played staccato. You can turn this pedal function on
or off for each keyboard part on this display.
NOTE
This function will not affect any of the Organ Flutes and only some of the Super Articulation Voices, even if this has
been assigned to the Foot Pedals.
SOFT

pressed. Portamento is produced when notes are played legato style (i.e., a note is played while
the preceding note is still held). The portamento time can also be adjusted form the Mixing
Console display (page 108). You can turn this pedal function on or off for each keyboard part
on this display.
NOTE
This function will not affect any of the Organ Flutes, Super Articulation 2 Voices and only some of the Super Articulation Voices, even if this has been assigned to the Foot Pedals.
PITCH BEND*
Allows you to bend the pitch of notes up or down by using the pedal. The following parameters
can be set for this function on this display.
UP/DOWN: Determines whether the pitch change goes up (is raised) or down (is lowered).
RANGE: Determines the range of the pitch change, in semitones.

Tyros4 Reference Manual
 Pre-programmed MIDI Templates
Transmits all parts including the keyboard parts (RIGHT 1, 2, 3, LEFT), with the exception of
Song parts.
KBD & STYLE
Basically the same as “ALL PARTS” with the exception of how keyboard parts are managed.
The right-hand parts are handled as a “UPPER” instead of RIGHT 1–3 and the left-hand part is
handled as a “LOWER.”
Master KBD1
In this setting, the Tyros4 functions as a “master” keyboard, playing and controlling one or
more connected tone generators or other devices (such as a computer/sequencer).
Master KBD2
Basically the same as “Master KBD1” above, with the exception that Aftertouch messages are
not transmitted.
Clock Ext. A
Playback or recording (Song, Style, Multi Pad, etc.) synchronizes with an external MIDI clock
instead of the Tyros4’s internal clock. This template should be used when you wish to set the
tempo on the MIDI device connected to the Tyros4. Playback or recording of the Tyros4 synchronizes with an external clock received via MIDI A.
MIDI Accord 1
MIDI accordions allow you to transmit MIDI data and play connected tone generators from the
keyboard and bass/chord buttons of the accordion. This template lets you play melodies from
the keyboard and control Style playback on the Tyros4 with the left-hand buttons.
MIDI Accord 2
Basically the same as “MIDI Accord1” above, with the exception that the chord/bass notes you
play with your left hand on the MIDI Accordion are recognized also as MIDI note events.
MIDI Pedal 1
MIDI pedal units allow you play connected tone generators with your feet (especially convenient for playing single note bass parts). This template lets you play/control the chord root in
Style playback with a MIDI pedal unit (connected to MIDI B only).
MIDI Pedal 2
This template lets you play the bass part for Style playback by using a MIDI pedal unit (connected to MIDI B only).
MIDI OFF
No MIDI signals are sent or received.

MIDI System Settings
The explanations here apply to the SYSTEM Page in step 4 on page 124.
Use the [A]/[B] buttons to select the parameters (below), then set the ON/OFF status by using the [1 ]–[8 ] buttons.
1 Local Control
Turns the Local Control for each part on or off. When Local Control is set to “ON,” the
keyboard of the Tyros4 controls its own (local) internal tone generator, allowing the internal Voices to be played directly from the keyboard. If you set Local to “OFF,” the keyboard and controllers are internally disconnected from the Tyros4’s tone generator section
so that no sound is output when you play the keyboard or use the controllers. For example,
this allows you to use an external MIDI sequencer to play the Tyros4’s internal Voices, and
use the Tyros4 keyboard to record notes to the external sequencer and/or play an external
tone generator.
2 Clock setting, etc.
 CLOCK
Determines whether the Tyros4 is controlled by its own internal clock or a MIDI clock
signal received from an external device. INTERNAL is the normal Clock setting when
the Tyros4 is being used alone or as a master keyboard to control external devices. If you
are using the Tyros4 with an external sequencer, MIDI computer, or other MIDI device,
and you want to synchronize it to that device, set this parameter to the appropriate setting: MIDI A, MIDI B, USB 1, or USB 2. In this case, make sure that the external device
is connected properly (e.g., to the Tyros4’s MIDI IN terminal), and that it is properly
transmitting a MIDI clock signal.
 TRANSMIT CLOCK
Turns MIDI clock (F8) transmission on or off. When set to OFF, no MIDI clock or Start/
Stop data is transmitted even if a Song or Style is played back.
 RECEIVE TRANSPOSE
Determines whether or not the Tyros4’s transpose setting is applied to the note events
received by the Tyros4 via MIDI.
 START/STOP
Determines whether incoming FA (start) and FC (stop) messages affect Song or Style
playback.
3 MESSAGE SW (Message Switch)
 SYS/EX.
The “Tx” setting turns MIDI transmission of MIDI System Exclusive messages on or
off. The “Rx” setting turns MIDI reception and recognition of MIDI System Exclusive
messages generated by external equipment on or off.
 CHORD SYS/EX.
The “Tx” setting turns MIDI transmission of MIDI chord exclusive data (chord detect.
root and type) on or off. The “Rx” setting turns MIDI reception and recognition of MIDI
chord exclusive data generated by external equipment on or off.
126
Tyros4 Reference Manual
NOTE
If the Clock is set other than INTERNAL,

EXTRA PART 1–4
There are four parts specially reserved for receiving and playing MIDI data. Normally, these parts are not used by the instrument itself. The Tyros4 can be used as
a 32-channel multi-timbral tone generator by using these four parts in addition to
the parts (except for the microphone sound).
3
Use the [4 ]–[8 ] button to determine the types of data
to be received.
MIDI transmission/reception via the USB terminal and MIDI terminals

Setting the Bass Note for Style Playback via MIDI Receive
The explanations here apply to the BASS Page in step 4 on page 124. These settings let you determine the bass note for
Style playback, based on the note messages received via MIDI. The note on/off messages received at the channel(s) set to
“ON” are recognized as the bass note of the chord of Style playback. The bass note will be detected regardless of the
[ACMP] or split point settings. When several channels are simultaneously set to “ON,” the bass note is detected from
merged MIDI data received over the channels.
1
2
1
Use the [A]/[B] buttons to select the channel.

Use the [1 ]–[8 ] button to set the desired channel to ON
or OFF.
Setting the Chord Type for Style Playback via MIDI Receive
The explanations here apply to the CHORD DETECT Page in step 4 on page 124. These settings let you determine the
chord type for Style playback, based on the note messages received via MIDI. The note on/off messages received at the
channel(s) set to “ON” are recognized as the notes for detecting chords in Style playback. The chords to be detected
depend on the fingering type. The chord types will be detected regardless of the [ACMP] or split point settings. When
several channels are simultaneously set to “ON,” the chord type is detected from merged MIDI data received over the
channels.

MFC10 Settings
The explanations here apply to the MFC10 Page in step 4 on page 124.
By connecting an optional MFC10 MIDI Foot Controller to the Tyros4, you can conveniently control a wide range of
operations and functions by using your feet—perfect for changing settings and controlling the sound while you perform
live. Different functions can be assigned to each of the footswitches and up to five foot controllers (optional) can be connected to the MFC10, for additional sound-shaping possibilities.

4-2
4-3
4-4
On this display, two settings (below) can be made:
• Each footswitch (F00–F29) on the MFC10 sends a note number to the Tyros4,
and the Tyros4 determines how it responds to (which function is executed by)
that note number.
• Each foot controller on the MFC10 sends control change messages over a specific control change number to the Tyros4, and the Tyros4 determines how it
responds to (which parameter is changed by) that control change number.
4-1 Use the [A]/[E] buttons to select “FOOTSWITCH” or “FOOT CONTROLLER.”
NEXT PAGE
130
Tyros4 Reference Manual
4-2 Use the [2 ]/[3 ] buttons to select a footswitch number (F00–F29)
or a foot controller number (1–5) to which the function is assigned.
Please note that a note number is assigned to each footswitch and a control
change number is assigned to each foot controller beforehand and you cannot change the settings.
4-3 Use the [4 ]–[6 ] buttons to specify the function assigned to the
footswitch (actually the note number), or the function assigned to the foot
controller (actually the control change number). About the functions which
can be assigned to the footswitch or foot controller, refer to page 122.
4-4 (Only for the FOOT CONTROLLER Setting) Determine the part to which
the function assigned to the foot controller is applied by using the [7 ]/
[8 ] buttons.
4-5 Use the [F]/[G] buttons to determine the MIDI port which is to be used
when communicating with the MFC10.
Here, the USB port (USB1, USB2) can be selected even though the MFC10
does not have the USB connector. This is because the computer can be used
instead of the MFC10. (The computer can transmit the data equivalent to the
data the MFC10 transmits to the Tyros4. For details, see the bottom of the
page.)
4-6 Use the [H] (CH SELECT) button to determine the MIDI channel which is
to be used when communicating with the MFC10.
5
Disconnect the MIDI cable from the Tyros4 and the MFC10, and
connect the MIDI OUT terminal of the MFC10 to the MIDI IN terminal of the Tyros4 according to the setting above by using a
MIDI cable.
NOTE
Actually the pair of the footswitch number and the note number, the pair of the
foot controller number and the control
change number, and the MIDI channel
for communication set above are transmitted to the MFC10.
