Use the [1 ▲▼]–[3 ▲▼] buttons to select the Harmony/Echo type.
The Harmony/Echo types are divided into the following groups, depending on
the particular effect applied.
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.

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.)
● 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.

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 ▲▼]

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).

2
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 features of the Tyros3 give you the tools to create your own original Voices. Voice Creator allows you to import your own “Wave” (audio samples in WAV or AIFF format), and assign them to the keys—
building completely new Voices with completely new sounds.
Two types of Voices can be created: Normal Voice (see below) and Drum Voice (page 22). The creating procedure
differs depending on the Voice type.

NOTE
Only WAV or AIFF format data can be used for the Voice Creator. Store the files
in a USB storage device or hard disk drive.
To take full advantage of the Voice Creator function, we recommend that you
install optional DIMMs.
Notes for Available Audio Files
• This instrument cannot recognize the extension .aiff. When you use an
AIFF file, change the extension to .aif.
• Only use uncompressed files.
• Audio data used for the Voice Creator can be of any sample rate or bit resolution. However, all audio data of a resolution other than 16-bit is automatically converted to 16-bit resolution after being loaded.
• Only use Wave data having the following frequencies: 96000 Hz, 88000
Hz, 48000 Hz, 44100 Hz, 32000 Hz, 22050 Hz or 11025 Hz. Otherwise,
the data may not play back at the correct pitch.
• Voice Creator supports and recognizes loops in the audio data, letting you
use up to one loop in each audio file. (Some sample libraries have loops
already programmed into the data; you can also use audio editing software to program loops yourself. Keep in mind however, that multiple
loops are not supported.)
• Audio files recorded with the Hard Disk Recorder cannot be used as is
with the Voice Creator. If you want to use a Hard Disk Recorder file,
export the file in .wav data format.

Voices – Playing the Keyboard –
By importing 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 Tyros3
Voices.

Turn the PART SELECT [RIGHT 1] button to on, then select a Voice.
When you are creating a Custom Voice from scratch, select an “empty” Voice

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

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 30.
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 more, 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.).
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.
NOTE
“AI” stands for “Artificial Intelligence.”

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.”

Styles are made up of fifteen different sections 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. 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 37.
• Step Recording: This method lets you to enter each note individually. See page 40.
• 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 40.
Call up the operation display.

The Style files created on the Tyros3 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.

Styles – Playing Rhythm and Accompaniment –
● Overdub Recording
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 and Delete (page 38). 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.

C R C
C = Chord note
C, R = Recommended note
Using the data recorded here, the auto accompaniment (Style playback) is
appropriately converted depending on the chord changes you make during
your performance. The chord which forms the basis for this note conversion
is called the Source Chord, and is set by default to CM7 (as in the example
illustration above).
You can change the Source Chord (its root and type) from the PARAMETER
display on page 45. Keep in mind that when you change the Source Chord
from the default CM7 to another chord, the chord notes and recommended notes will also change. For details on chord notes and recommended notes, see page 46.
NOTE
For the INTRO and ENDING sections, any appropriate chord or chord progression can be
used.
NOTE
If you want to record the pattern with a Source Chord other than CM7, set the PLAY ROOT
and PLAY CHORD parameters on the PARAMETER Page (page 46) 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 56) 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.

This lets you add swing to the music or change the “feel” of the beat by making 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 Beat” is selected, Groove timing is applied to the 8th notes; if “12 Beat” is
selected, Groove timing is applied to 8th-note triplets.
[3 ▲▼]/
[4 ▲▼]
BEAT 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 Beat” and BEAT CONVERTER is set to “12,” all 8th notes in the section are shifted 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 46)
There are a variety of possibilities for Style playback notes, depending on
the particular root note and chord type that are selected. The Style data is
appropriately converted depending on the chord changes you make during
your performance. This basic Style data that you create with the Style Creator is referred to as the “Source Pattern.”

Other settings—HIGH KEY, NOTE LIMIT and RTR (page 48)
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).
● 1 SOURCE (PLAY) ROOT/CHORD
NOTE
These settings determine the original key of the source pattern (i.e., the key
used when recording the pattern). The default setting of CM7 (with a Source
Root of “C” and a Chord Type of “M7”), is automatically selected whenever
the preset data is deleted prior to recording a new Style, regardless of the
Source Root and Chord included in the preset data. When you change Source
Root/Chord from the default CM7 to another chord, the chord notes and recommended notes will also change, depending on the newly selected chord
type.
When NTR is set to “Root Fixed” and
NTT is set to “Bypass,” the “Source
Root” and “Source Chord” parameters
are changed to “Play Root” and “Play
Chord,” respectively. In this case, you
can change chords and hear the resulting sound for all channels.

NTR (Note Transposition Rule)
ROOT TRANS
(Root Transpose)
ROOT FIXED
GUITAR
Determines the relative position of the root note in the chord, when converted from the Source Pattern in response to chord changes.
When the root note is transposed, the
pitch relationship 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.
The note is kept as close as possible to the
previous note range. For example, the
notes C3, E3 and G3 in the key of C
become C3, F3 and A3 when they are
transposed to F. Use this setting for channels that contain chord parts.
When playing
a C major
chord.
When playing
an F major
chord.
When playing
a C major
chord.
When playing
an F major
chord.
This is exclusively for transposing guitar accompaniment. Notes are
transposed to approximate the chords played with natural guitar fingering.
[5 ▲▼]–

NTT (Note Transposition Table)
Sets the note transposition table for the source pattern. Refer to the list on
page 47.
[8 ▲▼]
NTT BASS ON/
OFF
The channel for which this is set to ON will be played back by the bass root
note, when the on-bass chord is recognized by the instrument. When the
NTR is set to GUITAR and this parameter is set to ON, only the note which is
assigned to bass will be played back by the bass root note.

NTT (Note Transposition Table)
When the 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
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.
NATURAL MINOR 5th
In addition to the Natural Minor transposition above, augmented
and diminished chords affect the 5th note of the Source pattern.
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 chord such as
Intros and Endings.
DORIAN 5th
In addition to the Dorian transposition above, augmented and
diminished chords affect the 5th note of the Source pattern.
When the NTR is set to GUITAR
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.

• Follow Lights: When this is selected, Song playback pauses, waiting for
you to play the notes correctly. When you play the correct notes, Song
playback continues. Follow Lights was developed for the Yamaha
Clavinova series. This function is used for practicing purposes, with built-in
lamps on the keyboard indicating the notes to be played. Even though the
Tyros3 does not have these lamps, you can use the same function by following the indications in the displayed notation with the Song Score function.
• Any Key: With this function, you can play the melody of a Song just by
pressing a single key (any key is OK) in time with the rhythm. Song playback pauses and waits for you to play any key. Simply play a key on the
keyboard in time with the music and Song playback continues.
Guide menu for singing
• Karao-Key: This function lets you control the Song playback timing with
just one finger, while you sing along. This is useful for singing to your own
performance. Song playback pauses, waiting for you to sing. Simply play a
key on the keyboard (any key is fine) and Song playback continues.
• Vocal Cue Time: This function lets you practice singing with the proper
pitch. Song playback pauses, waiting for you to sing. When you sing with
proper pitch, Song playback continues.

When re-recording a specific section of an already-recorded Song, use the Punch IN/OUT function. In this method,
only the data between the Punch In point and the Punch Out point is overwritten with the newly recorded data.

Pedal 2 instantly enables Punch In recording, while releasing the pedal stops
recording (Punch Out). You can press and release Foot Pedal 2 as often as you
want during playback to punch in/out of overwrite recording. Note that the
current function assignment of the Foot Pedal 2 is cancelled when the Pedal
Punch In/Out function is set to ON.
REPLACE ALL: This deletes all data after the point at which recording is
stopped.
PUNCH OUT: The Song position at which recording is stopped is regarded as
the Punch Out point. This setting maintains all data after the point at
which recording is stopped.
PUNCH OUT AT: Actual overwrite recording continues until the beginning of
the specified Punch Out measure (set with the corresponding display button), at which point recording stops and normal playback continues. This
setting maintains all data after the point at which recording is stopped.
You can set the Punch Out measure by pressing the [6 ▲▼] buttons.
NOTE
Pedal Punch In/Out operation may be reversed depending on the particular pedal you’ve
connected to the instrument. If necessary, change the pedal polarity to reverse the control

● 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 –

After 1/8 note quantization
Settings:

1/16 note

1/8 note triplet*

1/16 note triplet*
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 67). 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.
3
Example 1
[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.
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
to) differ from those at the jump source,
glitches or drop-outs in the sound may
result. This is because of limitations in
the effect processors of the Tyros3.
NOTE
When using the Guide function
(page 53) with jump playback, keep in
mind that the Guide indication may not
be able to stay in time with the jumps.

Importing an Audio File
Recording Audio with the Hard Disk Recorder
7
In addition to letting you record audio directly with the Tyros3, the Hard Disk Recorder also allows you to import
audio data from a USB storage device to Main track. The benefits of this feature are many. For example, you can:
• Use existing audio material (commercially available samples, loops, sound effects, etc.) on the Tyros3.
• Record your performance to another device (such as on a computer or audio sequencer), add vocals and other
instruments as desired, then import the finished audio to the Tyros3.
• Export a recording made on the Tyros3 to a computer-based audio editor—giving you more comprehensive editing features and greater editing convenience—then import the audio back to the Tyros3. (See “Exporting an
Audio File” on the Owner’s Manual.)
Files which can be imported must have these characteristics:
• Stereo Wave data
• 44.1 kHz sample rate
• 16-bit resolution
• A length of less than or equal to 80 minutes

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.

result in deterioration of the sound
quality.
NORMAL REC / NORMAL REC (PLUS PLAYBACK)
You can replace the whole audio data of a track by NORMAL 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.

For details, see page 82.
CAUTION
Keep in mind that even if you
neglect to save the recorded data
in this step, the originally
recorded file (before re-recording)
will still remain on the hard disk
drive.
PUNCH IN OUT / PUNCH IN OUT (MERGE)
This method of recording can only be used on an existing recording. It allows you to
re-record 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.

Playlist Mode
The Playlist is a convenient feature within the Hard Disk Recorder that lets you collect and organize audio 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 “Basic/Playlist” indicator at the upper left of the display shows whether the Hard Disk Recorder is set to the
Basic mode (playback of a single file) or the Playlist mode (automatic playback of multiple files).
Creating a Playlist
Once you have a number of recorded or imported audio files on the installed hard disk
drive, you can assign 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).

using the [A]–[J] buttons.
Press the [8 ▼] (CHANGE MENU) button if necessary, then press the
[6 ▼] (Add to PLAYLIST) button.
Select the desired audio file(s) by using the [A]–[J] buttons.
NOTE
The selected file name is highlighted. You can continue to select additional
files here, as many as desired. If multiple pages (P1, P2, ...) are shown at the
bottom, you can select files from these displays, too.
To select all the files in the current folder, press the [6 ▼] (ALL) button.

NOTE
A Playlist can contain a maximum of
500 audio files.
If you want to select all but a few of the
files in the folder, a quick method is to
use the [6 ▼] (ALL) button to select all
of the files, then use the [A]–[J] buttons
to de-select specific files.
Press the [7 ▼] (OK) button.
To cancel the operation, press the [8 ▼] (CANCEL) button.

Check the Playlist to confirm that the files have been added by pressing the [6 ▲] (PLAYLIST) button.

If you change the file icon after adding
to the Playlist, the audio file cannot be
recognized from the Playlist.
Save the Playlist.
Press the [5 ▲▼] (PLAYLIST FILE) button, then save the Playlist to the USER
drive, installed hard disk drive or USB storage device.
Playing a Playlist
Once you’ve created and/or edited a Playlist (page 88) and you’ve enabled the Playlist mode, you can play back the
files in the list—at any time during your performance.
Keep in mind that playback of files is not instantaneous. Since the Hard Disk Recorder needs to load each file before
playing it, playback pauses roughly one or two seconds between files.

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 Tyros3 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.

● 3BAND EQ (selected by [A] or [F] button)
EQ (Equalizer) is a processor that divides the frequency spectrum into multiple
bands which can be boosted or cut as required to tailor the overall frequency
response. The Tyros3 features a high-grade three-band (LOW, MID and HIGH)
digital equalizer function for the microphone sound.

[3 ▲▼]
KBD (Keyboard)
The Vocal Harmony effect in Vocoder mode (below) is controlled by note
data—the notes you play on the keyboard and/or the notes of the song data.
This parameter lets you determine which notes are used to control the harmony.
When set to “MUTE,” the channel selected below (to control Harmony) is
muted (turned off) during keyboard performance or song playback.
When set to “OFF,” song data control over harmony is turned off. When set to
one of the values 1–16, note data (played from a Song on the Tyros3 or external MIDI sequencer) contained on the corresponding channel is used to control the harmony.
OFF: Keyboard control over harmony is turned off.
UPPER: Notes played to the right of the split point control the harmony.
LOWER: Notes played to the left of the split point control the harmony.
[4 ▲▼]
BAL. (Balance)
This lets you set the balance between the lead vocal (your own voice) and
Vocal Harmony. Raising this value increases the volume of the Vocal Harmony
and decreases that of the lead vocal. When this is set to L<H63 (L: Lead Vocal,
H: Vocal Harmony), only the Vocal Harmony is output; when it is set to
L63>H, only the lead vocal is output.
[5 ▲▼]
MODE (Vocal Harmony mode)
All of the Vocal Harmony types fall into one of three modes, which produce
harmony in different ways. The harmony effect is dependent on the selected
Vocal Harmony mode, and this parameter determines how the harmony is
applied to your voice. The three modes are described below.
AUTO: When the [ACMP] or [LEFT] is set to ON and if chord data exists in the
Song, the mode is automatically set to CHORDAL. In all other cases, the
mode is set to VOCODER.
VOCOD (Vocoder): The harmony notes are determined by the notes you
play on the keyboard and/or Song data. You can specify whether the
Vocoder effect is controlled by your keyboard performance or by the Song
data (VOCODER CONTROL parameter above).
CHORD (Chordal): The harmony notes are determined by the following
three types of chord: chords played in the chord section of the keyboard
(with the [ACMP] turned on), chords played in the LEFT Voice section of
the keyboard (with the [ACMP] turned off and the [LEFT] turned on), and
chords contained in Song data for controlling the harmony. (Not available
if the Song does not contain any chord data.)
[6 ▲▼]
CHORD
The following parameters determine which data in a recorded Song is used
for chord detection.
OFF: Chords are not detected from the Song data.
XF: Chords of XF format are used for the Vocal Harmony.
1–16: Chords are detected from note data in the specified Song channel.
[7 ▲▼]
VOCAL RANGE
Set this to obtain the most natural vocal harmony, depending on your voice.
NORM.: Normal setting.
LOW: Setting for lower voice. This setting is also appropriate for growling
and shouting.
HIGH: Setting for higher voice. This setting is also appropriate for singing
close to the microphone.

when the LEAD GENDER TYPE above is set to other than Off. The
higher the value, the more “feminine” the harmony voice becomes.
The lower the value, the more “masculine” the voice.
LEAD PITCH CORRECT
This parameter is only effective when the LEAD GENDER TYPE above
is set to other than Off. When Smooth or Hard is selected, the pitch
of the lead vocal is shifted in precise semitone steps.
UPPER GENDER THRESHOLD
Gender change will occur when the harmony pitch reaches or
exceeds the specified number of semitones above the lead vocal
pitch.
LOWER GENDER
THRESHOLD
Gender change will occur when the harmony pitch reaches or
exceeds the specified number of semitones below the lead vocal
pitch.
UPPER GENDER DEPTH
Adjusts the degree of gender change applied to harmony notes
higher than the UPPER GENDER THRESHOLD. The higher the value,
the more “feminine” the harmony voice becomes. The lower the
value, the more “masculine” the voice.
LOWER GENDER DEPTH
Adjusts the degree of gender change applied to harmony notes
lower than the LOWER GENDER THRESHOLD. The higher the value,
the more “feminine” the harmony voice becomes. The lower the
value, the more “masculine” the voice.

■ 1 Local Control
10
Turns the Local Control for each part on or off. When Local Control is set to
“ON,” the keyboard of the Tyros3 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 Tyros3’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 Tyros3’s internal Voices, and
use the Tyros3 keyboard to record notes to the external sequencer and/or play
an external tone generator.
■ 2 Clock setting, etc.
● CLOCK
Determines whether the Tyros3 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 Tyros3 is being used alone or as a master keyboard to
control external devices. If you are using the Tyros3 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 Tyros3’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 Tyros3’s transpose setting is applied to the
note events received by the Tyros3 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.

Setting the Bass Note for Style Playback via MIDI Receive
The explanations here apply to the BASS Page in step 4 on page 112. 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.

Use the [A]/[B] buttons to select the channel.
Use the [1 ▲▼]–[8 ▲▼] button to set the desired channel to ON or
OFF.
You can also set all channels to OFF by pressing the [I] (ALL OFF) button.
The explanations here apply to the CHORD DETECT Page in step 4 on page 112. 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 112.
By connecting an optional MFC10 MIDI Foot Controller to the Tyros3, 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.
1
Connect the MIDI IN terminal of the MFC10 to one of the MIDI OUT terminals of the Tyros3 by using a MIDI cable.

On this display, two settings (below) can be made:
• Each footswitch (F00–F29) on the MFC10 sends a note number to the
Tyros3, and the Tyros3 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 Tyros3, and the Tyros3 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.”
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.
NEXT PAGE
118 • Tyros3 Reference Manual
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 110.
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 Tyros3. 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.

Press the [I] (SEND MFC10 SETUP) button to send the settings here
to the MFC10.
Disconnect the MIDI cable from the Tyros3 and the MFC10, and connect the MIDI OUT terminal of the MFC10 to the MIDI IN terminal of the
Tyros3 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.

Press the [EXIT] button to return to the MIDI template Selection display and save the settings above to the USER tab.
Using a computer or another MIDI instrument instead of the MFC10
The following two settings on the MFC10 Page can be saved not to the
MFC10 but to the Tyros3 as a MIDI template.
• Note number/Tyros3 function assignment pairs
• Control change number/Tyros3 parameter change assignment pairs
If you are not using an MFC10, you can have note numbers and control
change messages from any other appropriate MIDI device (such as a computer, sequencer or master keyboard) control the Tyros3. Make sure to set
the appropriate channel in this display for control by the external device.
