The TNR-O (TENORI-ON Orange LED) features orange LEDs on a single side, allowing you to enjoy performing in the relaxed atmosphere of your own home. The frame is made of flawless lightweight white plastic.
Media artist Toshio Iwai and Yamaha have collaborated to design a digital musical instrument for the 21st century, TENORI-ON. A 16x16 matrix of LED switches allows everyone to play music intuitively, creating a "visible music" interface.
iD-xtra A house tune built around an ad-lib melody. This tune interweaves the track mutes and reloop so frequently encountered in clubs, and also features a flanger effect turning on and off partway through.
Demo Performance The TENORI-ON is a unique 16 x 16 LED button matrix performance instrument with a stunning visual display. For DJs & producers it is a unique performance tool enabling them to perform using MIDI and load the TENORI-ON with samples to 'jam / improvise' within their set BPMs.
Modes 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.
Six Modes: - Score Mode - Random Mode - Draw Mode - Bounce Mode - Push Mode - Solo Mode
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.
