Style Question about the Yamaha PSR-S900

by Fred Groulx
(Garson, Ontario , Canada)

Hello,

I purchased a PSR-S900 Yamaha keyboard and I've been experiencing a glitch with the styles from time to time - for example - When I switch from one style to another, the drum sound dissapears and I have to turn off the keyboard to re-set.

Is that a glitch ?

Style creator
by: Dick Rector

Hi John,

Sorry I can't, I don't make styles and I don't have the same keyboard as you, but if you don't get an answer from someone else, try PSRTUTORIAL.COM and put your question there.
Many owners/users of PSR-S900 and other mid- and upper models on that forum. One of the great 'guru's, Michael Bedesem also wrote a good and free to download style-making program.

Good luck with your problem.
Regards
Dick

easy converting styles
by: Dick Rector

Hallo Alfonso and Sam and all others who are interested!

As far as I know (not so much) all style files for the Yamaha keyboards must have an extension!
For the PSR series (PSR stand for PortaSoundRegular meaning 'with normal size keys')the extension is .STY
For the TYROS it is .PRS and there are a few more like .SST - .PCS and others.
Sam, your keyboard will not see or play the Tyros ....PRS styles unless you change the extension into .STY and you can do that by hand on your computer. SAVE THE ORIGINAL FIRST!!!!!
But my advice to make life easy:
Go to www.svpworld.com/dnn/software/stylemanagerseries/midiplayer2 and download this fantastic and FREE program by Michael P. Bedesem.
FIRST the whole package and than install the latest update over it!
This program, and many others from the same author, I have been using for years now and I have converted thousands of styles from all kind of resources and brandnames. Have a good look at this program, it will do the job for you in seconds and does a lot off other things specifically for your model.
Only very occasionally it will not convert a style to a useful one for your keyboard.
In some cases you have to 'tweak' your styles to your own taste, I find the bass and drums in general too loud but that is a personal meaning.
Alfonso, I am sorry, if you files don't have any extension at all I have no idea how you keyboard can recognize them and I have no idea how you can deal with them.
Good luck!

Styles for free
by: Dick Rector

Hi there, and all of you who are looking for thousands of free styles!!!
Go to psrtutorial.com and you will find all the styles in the world for free for all Yamaha and most other brand keyboards.
There are also links to other useful websites.
Be aware that you have to tweak (adapt)styles sometimes for you own model keyboard, it is easy, in most cases change the extension xxxxx.??? in xxxxx.STY if your instrument is using that.
But a lot of them are done already by other players and performers.
MIND please and be a good sport!
The styles are for your own personal use only and not for commercial activities!
Have a lot of (musical) fun.

Styles
by: Dick Rector

Hi,

Maybe you know by now. But just in case!
I had success by just changing the extention .??? to .STY (for my PSR 2000) or whatever your keyboard uses as style-extension.
This worked also for a lot of styles from other keyboard Brandnames but sometimes not at all.
Quit often you have to 'tweak'(adapt) the styles as they are made for another model keyboard and don't sound the same on yours. Bare also in mind that some styles are to BIG for the memory of other keyboards and will NOT load. In this case you can download for free a little programm called 'VisualStyler' to take out some parts of the too big styles (intro and ending A or B or C for example) most at the time this will do the job.
Hope this works for you as well.
Good luck
Dick

S900 STYLES
by: ANDY

HI FRED
DOES THIS HAPPEN WHEN YOU ARE CHANGING LIVE FROM ONE STYLE TO ANOTHER.....? I HAVE S900
AND I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED THIS YET....
IF YOU GO TO musiciansroom.net AND LOOK FOR STYLES
YOU CAN DOWNLOAD ALL THE TYROS 2 STYLES IN WINAR
ZIP..OPEN IT UP SAVE THE STYLES TO OYUR DOUC'S
THEN OPEN UP EACH STYLE CAT I.E ROCK/POP OR
ENTERTAINMENT ETC THEN MOVE STYLES ONTO A FLASH
DRIVE -PUT FLASH IN BACK OF S900 TURN ON PRESS USB
BUTTON TAB TO USB AND THE STYLES WILL BE THERE.
SO THAT ADDS ANOTHER 90 PRO STYLES TO YOUR KEYBOARD...IF STUCK MY EMAIL IS tomo51atmsndotecom
