About myself

Post by mm60103 » 05 Mar 2017, 21:55

I'm registered under MM60103 but known by Mike to my friends. I've played organ and piano for many years for personal and when press ganged public performances. Generally I never buy new but am happy to buy second hand what a lot of people would have given there right arm for probably 5 years earlier. Instruments I've owned in the past have included a few Hammond tonewheels, several Yamahas and Technics. Although I'm a big fan of Haupwerks and have a fairly decent set up based on an Orla GT3000 I am extremely fortunate in that I have the real thing - a real live Wurlitzer about 2 miles away available to be played. So what about my interest here? Some time ago I decided to have a look at a Tyros. In fairness not my finest hour and as an organist I found it a miserable thing. I had the forthought to stick in the box rather than sell it. I later came across the Orla base unit that the Tyros sit on complete with a lower manual and pedal board. I've heard a similar set up played and it sounded pretty good so worth the effort to make the setup work. Its about now the wheel has dropped off and although I can get a lovely tonewheel organ on the top through the Tyros all I'm getting on the bottom manual is a piano and what sounds like a cello on the pedals. All in all as a default its a winning combination! I'm sure this has been dealt with before and I would appreciate any help pointing me in the righ direction / topics so I can make some headway. :)

Hello and welcome to the forum. You don't say what Tyros you are using but Yamaha produced a Regi Stick to set up a two manual set up or twin set as it is known as. On this it has a template to set up the split in the right place for the bottom keyboard and base pedals if you use them. There are a lot of registrations on the Stick that have bee set read to select ad play. The regi stick is availiable from the Yamaha Club.
I hope you will enjoy being a member here.

Genos and S970.
