Recently I had the opportunity thanks to Roger from Roger’s Music to record the main demonstration audio from the latest flagship keyboard from Yamaha – the Tyros5.
After recording the main demo music, I decided to capture video snippets so you can see the Tyros5 from various angles as well as including some of the images provided by Yamaha.

With a world seemingly entranced by smartphone and tablet technologies, it is more than just a little bit disappointing that many devices including my iPhone 5s and iPad come equipped with a single speaker. They may be adequate for watching the odd short video, to listen to a sample of a song or to converse with friends – however when it comes to listening to music, it doesn’t exactly blow your socks off. True the volume is actually quite impressive on many modern devices these days, yet it certainly won’t fill a room or offer a wide range of frequencies.
We therefore have a few key choices… To equip ourselves with a set of headphones – fine for the personal experience. Secondly purchase a speaker system with an equipped iPhone or even iPad dock, although not everyone chooses an Apple device. For the best compatibility however with a wide range of devices, Bluetooth is the best option and with an Aux-In input also – the Xenta LT-201 Bluetooth Speaker includes the basic requirements that should appeal to any individual who owns a diverse range of hardware.

Back in November last year, I interviewed Rob Landeros and David Wheeler in a podcast who were involved with Trilobyte Games. In it they discussed both ‘The 7th Guest’ and ‘The 11th Hour’ and discussion inevitably continued on to whether there would be another game in the series.
Well now nearly one year later since the podcast recording, ‘The 7th Guest 3: The Collector’ has appeared on Kickstarter to raise funds to create the game for an expected release of October 2015.
