Snapshot of Instruction manual

Dear All,

I own a Yamaha PSR 1100. For the transfer of files from the Keyboard to Computer and vice versa, the File Utility ID needs to be identified. From the instructions manual, I am unable to get the File Utility ID. The picture is attached. Can anyone please direct me how to get the File utility number from the Instrument's MIDI set up display.

Many thanks,
Abraham

CD for installing Midi
by: Rosemarie

I own a PSR2100. I have the USB cable however in order to set up my midi driver the instructions state that I have to install a CD. However when I purchased the instrument I did not get a CD. Is it possible to purchase this CD directly from Yamaha in India or can you please tell me if there are other vendors who would have this CD.

My computer has Windows XP.

Thank you.

Also if there an keyboard instructor in the Indirnagar area in Bangalore who can teach me how to use my PSR 2100.

Thank you

File Utility Software
by: Elkana David

Dear Abraham / Rosemarie,

Even I had PSR 1100 and even I installed File Utility software but it is not at all communicating with PC, and unable to save the Data from Instrument to PC. Apart from that eveything is working fine and able to create styles, and Track recording too.

I loved all the features in this but only one disadvantage in this I found is, I am unable to save Data from Instrument.

USB instead of floppydrive
by: Dick Rector

Hi Elkana,

If you read back I left my email-address for you to contact me directly to send you a zipfile with all the info.

As far as I know the USB-floppy-emulator is ONLY available from trungtal@googlemail.com in Vietnam.
I paid 100 US$ for the box and 20 US$ for shipment by DHL.
It works fine in my PSR 2000 and should work in all Yamaha keyboards with floppydrives but I heard it will NOT work in some models of other brands as they use a different protocol (language)to communicate with the box.
You better contact the vendor for details for ordering and availability.

Regards
Dick

lots of questions
by: Dick Rector

Hi Elkana,

On answers how to record on your keyboard you should read carefully your manual. Yamaha is not known to be very 'clear' in their manuals especially for beginners but since I don't have the same keyboard I can not help you in this.

For recording your sound to a computer, download for free 'AUDACITY' and install it. The onscreen help is easy to understand.

MP3 to MIDI converting is NOT possible or at least VERY BAD unless you have a professional studio available with good equipment. MIDI is NOT music but a sort of computer-language to make a keyboard understand what tone to produce, how loud and how long etc.
The other way around, MIDI to MP3 is YES possible with a free program called 'SWITCH'.

Please understand, the volunteers and enthusiast keyboard users on this forum are here to help people if they have a problem or get really stuck to put them in the right direction if we can. We do this in our free time!
A lot of questions can be answered by reading the manual and if the person with the question himself does a bit of work by searching the Internet.

Good luck
Dick

Keyboard styles for free
by: Dick Rector

Hi Elkana,

First of all you should yourself search the Internet for what you want. There are many firms who are making 'custom' styles but for a price!
We are volunteers on this forum (doing this in our free time).We are trying to help people with keyboard-problems if we can but not for doing someones homework or shopping. I hope you understand me.

You can try psrtutorial.com for free styles
but I haven't seen many Indian styles. So I advice you to look on Indian websites.

Good luck hunting.
Dick

Hi Guys, Soo need your help to get my keyboard to be friends again with my PC. Since I had clicked yes to Midi...Bulksend I now have no sound registering from my PC when I play the keyboard. It will show sound going into PC but no sound out.
I have checked the manual but it did not cover this problem and wonder if you can bail me out here.

Its as been many years since I have had this keyboard,never had a problem and can't remember if it came with a back-up software.

Again I ask, can you help this poor man in distress cause I am lost without my keyboard.
