The new lower priced O model is functionally exactly the same as the original W except its 256 orange LEDs are on one side of its unique hands on interface and it does not operate on batteries. The Tenori-O will appeal to producers, music production home studios and anyone who wants to start instantly making music visually.

Media artist Toshio Iwai collaborated with Yamaha to design a totally new musical instrument for the 21st century. Tenori-on combines a MIDI controller, tone generator, sampler and stunning visual user interface . Most importantly it's a unique new way for anyone from cutting edge electronic artists to non-musicians to approach playing and composing music. Music instantly becomes a wall of light graffiti as you paint the sounds across its 256 LED buttons. Currently on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Tenori-on is both a musical instrument and a performance work of art.


A 16 x 16 matrix of LED switches allows everyone to play music intuitively, creating a "visible music" interface. The TENORI-ON 16 x 16 LED button matrix is simultaneously a performance input controller and display. By operating and interacting with the LED buttons and the light they produce you gain access to the TENORI-ON's numerous performance capabilities. The TENORI-ON provides six different performance and sound/light modes for broad performance versatility, and these modes can be combined and used simultaneously for rich, complex musical expression.

Layers
TENORI-ON layers can be thought of as "performance parts" or "recording tracks." The TENORI-ON has a total of 16 layers. Separate notes and voices can be assigned to each layer, and all layers can be played together in synchronization. The 16 layers are divided into six performance mode groups as shown in the illustration below. The six modes have different note entry methods and operation. Up to 16 layers created using different modes can be combined for rich, complex musical expression. Blocks
Once complete set of 16 layers is called a "block." The TENORI-ON can store up to 16 programmed blocks (16-layer groups) in memory, and you can switch from block to block instantly during performance. You could, for example, create a musical composition in one block, then copy that composition to another block and edit it to create a variation of the original composition. Or you can load a number of previously-created compositions into separate blocks from an SD Memory Card and switch between them to create variation during playback.
