I saw this posted in a Tyros forum:

official certification

"this is the official certification agency for electronic devices in Canada, so this isn't fake."

If true there will be a 61 key and a 76 key Tyros 5.
There may be some other finds about new Yamaha keyboards in the list.

Tyros 5 61 key

Features

Authentic Ensemble Performances
Ensemble Voice is an amazing function that utilizes parameters which "humanize" the performance to reproduce the subtle variations in timing heard in a real ensemble. This provides an authentic sound that sounds as if a group of actual performers were playing, and allows you to enjoy playing like an instrumental quartet with ease.

Welcome to Organ World
The Tyros5 features Vintage, Home, Euro, Concert, and Theatre organ Voices, all superbly reproduced with stunning samples that allow the Tyros5 to shine in any situation that an organist might encounter. With features such as a comprehensive set of realistic organ-style controls, adjustable effects, and intuitive operation that allows you to alter the sound in real time while you play, Organ World is sure to meet the demands of the most demanding performer.

Add Rhythm to your performances with Audio Styles
Adding forty new percussion-based Styles to the Tyros5’s impressive backing and accompaniment capabilities, Audio Styles add natural feel, ambience, and warmth to drum and percussion parts, offering greater expressive potential. Audio Styles also benefit from Yamaha's Time Stretch Technology, which allows the audio to follow your tempo changes without changing pitch, so everything stays in perfect sync.

Enhanced DSPs for authentic effects that give you “that” sound
Not only does the Tyros5 have new and high-quality effect types, including Real Distortion and Real Reverb, it provides beautifully designed panel displays, with highly intuitive controls - just like actual effect devices. These also include VCM effects that use the same technology as the professional-level processing on Yamaha's high-end mixers.

Real Reverb
Real Reverb is an improved version of the Reverb technology found in previous versions of the Tyros. New algorithms take a greater number of factors into account, producing smoother, more natural reverbs.

Real Distortion
Real Distortion effects are based on digital models of classic guitar amplifiers from the 1960's and 1970's. There are also digital models of legendary analog guitar effect pedals. The result meticulously reproduces the frequencies and dynamics of real distortion guitar sounds.

VCM
While digital solutions are increasingly prevalent in music production studios and performance venues, but older analog gear is still used to get the warm sound that digital effects typically cannot provide. Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology provides accurate reproductions of the classic sound of such effects units.

A versatile high performance audio engine that gives you total control over your sound.

The Tyros5 is capable of playing back and recording audio files, and also possesses a range of audio manipulation features you can use to create “karaoke” style “minus one” tracks in the key and tempo of your choice.

Audio Link Multi Pad
Audio Link Multi Pad function lets you link your own audio files (sound effects, vocal phrases, and so on), and trigger them from the Pads as you perform.

Vocal cancel
A powerful Vocal Cancel function effectively cancels or suppresses signals like vocals and solos that play a central role in an audio file, allowing you to make your own “minus one” track and sing “karaoke” style with just instrumental backing.

Time stretch and pitch shift
Not all singing voices have the same range. The Tyros5 can put your favorite song in the key of your choice with a powerful pitch shift feature that lets you change the key without changing the tempo. If you do want to change the tempo, you can use the time stretch feature to slow down or speed up the tempo without changing the pitch.

Record styles
In another first, the Tyros5 allows you to record Audio Styles to hard disk as audio files, which you can also use in performances.

Powerful functions that bring new elements to your on-stage performances

Cross fader
Cross fader lets you adjust the volume balance between MIDI Song playback and Audio file playback, allowing you to give DJ-like performances while playing. Moving the fader to the left increases the volume of MIDI Song playback, while moving it to the right increases the volume of Audio playback.

Panel Lock
Lock the panel to prevent any settings from being changed when you are away from the instrument—the perfect function for the live performer.

4 Sub Out
Tyros5 features four Sub Out line-out connections that you can use to adapt your sound to any performance situation, whether it be sending a specific part to a powered monitor, or sending a different sound to the house PA.

Vocal Harmony2
With Vocal Harmony you can sing along with three of your own virtual background vocalists. Vocal Harmony2 takes that a step further with pitch recognition and stability controls. A convenient real-time Mic Level indicator is included in the main display, and a intuitive graphic user interface makes it easy to experiment with your own mic settings, effects and harmony types.

The cynic in me wonders if this is a deliberate marketing ploy.

And I`ve been trying to synchronise multi instrument stuff . . .Oh well . . . . (shrug) Maybe it`s time to take up smoking!

I doubt it. The occasional times it happens, no real benefit seems to accrue. To put it differently, if it is supposed to be a kind of stealth marketing, they are doing it really badly. ;-)

This new Tyros 5 will most probably cost a fortune - considering that the current Tyros 4 already costs $5000+.

For the possible $5000++ price-range this new arranger workstation will command, Yamaha could have at least upgraded the polyphony to 256 (instead of 128) and the storage drive to SSD (instead of HDD).

If this flagship arranger workstation would follow a similar pricing scheme as Tyros 4, then Korg Kronos' X 88 price (with its SSD + touchscreen + other features) pales by comparison to the new Tyros 5...price-wise, that is...despite the fact that these two keyboards belong to different categories (arranger workstation vs synthesizer workstation).

It looks like the selling price for the Tyros 5 is between $3,800.00 and $3,900.00 dollars which would be less than the Tyros 4.

Looks like the Tyros 5 is going to follow the pricing scheme (overpriced?) of its predecessor...see it here:

Tyros 5 76-key @ $5,000+

With that price, Yamaha just inadvertently made the pricing scheme of Korg Kronos X relatively a bit more competitive if not attractive especially given the features offered by the latter. All though these two keyboards belong to different categories (Tyros 5 = Arranger Workstation; Korg Kronos = Synth/DP/Keyboard workstation), both these flagships also target the same "composer/performer" segment/market which is why we can't totally avoid comparisons...

Korg Kronos X starting @ $3,699

Of course, there's probably going to be a successor to Korg's current PA3X (flagship arranger workstation) that will be a direct competitor of the Tyros 5...but assuming Korg follows the current pricing scheme of its PA3X, then it's relatively going to cost a little less if not competitively priced than the Tyros 5...

Korg PA3X 76-keys @ $3,999

We can only wait...

I would really like to see the successor of the Motif XF and successor of Kronos X... and yes... all those keyboards always come overpriced as every key based musical instrument.

You can buy a 61 key Tyros 5 for $3,750 or $4,000 with stand and speakers if you act fast.
The 76 key Tyros 5 price is $3,950 or $4,200 with stand and speakers if you act fast.
These prices will end very soon.

audioworksct.com has the above offer.

I do not work for them.
