How to record drums only?
by: KevinEA

I have a Yamaha YPG-635 keyboard. I want to record myself playing along with a drum line, but I don't want the performance assistant to make chords out of my left hand key presses. I just want my two hands and the drum line (Bossa Nova, #96). When I try to do that, it adds chords and other stuff that I don't want. Advice?

Thanks!

midi

Hi Taylor,

It is MIDI, format 1 or 0 doesn't matter, Yamaha keyboards can handle both formats.

Might work, might not......
by: Anonymous

What do you mean by format one or two or whatever? And also I kept looking up what the file was and I already found out that is the midi file. but when I renamed the file and tried to put it on the piano, it showed up,but when i highlighted it with the scroller, it said "Data Error". so I guess you can't just rename a file "Jet Airliner.MIDI" (that's the song I was trying to load) you actually have to have a converter program or something. so I looked up free converters and I found one! hopefully it works!

Hi Axel

Send your email-address to me and I will send you a step by step doc.file. The file is to large to put on the forum.
It is easy and fun, simple to do and the software you can download for free. You need one cheap cable available in any computer-shop or department-store.

Hammond B3
by: Anonymous

Voice numbers 185 through 191 simulate drawbar settings. Also, 193, 195, 196, 197, 198, and 200 can be used. Add a reverberation type from the Effect Type List to simulate reverb on a Hammond (Hall #s 1-7). Under DSB Types Rotary Speaker simulations (Nos. 145-152) fall far short of a Leslie on a B3. There's nothing like a Hammond, though. I'm going to pull mine out of storage.

RE: External Sound
by: Anonymous

There are hundreds of ways to do this. First off, what audio equipment does your band use. If there is a mixer, simply run a 1/4" instrument cable to the mixer and you're done. I'm assuming you don't have an external keyboard amp? I'd need to know more details of what exactly you want to achieve, along with list of equipment you have.

Using Yamaha YPG-635 with external sound system
by: Jim

I think the gist of the question is this --because the 635 has no outputs other than what is labeled as Headphones/Output, how do I connect the 635 to an external sound system. I had the same question and, although I have not purchased yet, I intend to use a Y-adapter that has a 1/4" stereo plug (M) and two 1/4" jacks (F). Run a normal instrument cable between each of the adapter jacks and two different amplifiers or into the two channels of a stereo keyboard amplifier or even into a multi-channel PA system. This should work marvelously.

RE: External Sound
by: Steve

Hello again,
Yes that would work, but there's an easier method if you want. I had same problem but found this cable for left/right output. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000068O1Q/ref=oss_product
Don't worry about the send/return identification on the outputs. They will give you left and right mono's, which will create stereo. To enhance even more, pan each,(left, right mono's), 30% - 100% left/right respectively, in your mixing unit. Sorry for no name earlier, I am anonymous comments above. As I mentioned in another related comment, I have my cable running into an R-16 digital multi-track recorder. Panned L/R channels, added some chorus and reverb, sounds truly amazing. For the low cost of the cable, saved me a lot of headaches and works great. Remember, the less amount of adapters and connections in a cable, the less resistance and usually the better the sound quality.

by: Anonymous

From what I was told at Apple today, you can download Windows to your Mac to get the keyboard data to the computer. But, it won't allow access to Garageband or anything else on the Mac. I'm going to purchase a simple $100 keyboard compatible with Mac to utilize Garageband...and use my YPG635 separately.

YPG 635 Display Size
by: Alfred

Dear Marianne: IF there is a music store in your area where you can see first-hand what the size of the Display is, that would be the obvious thing to do. You are right about the size you have seen on line. It is no bigger than the "standard" (small) displays found in most units. IF however you will be purchasing on line, make sure you ask the Seller exactly what size the Display is. Good luck.

Help! It's between the Yamaha MM8 and Yamaha YPG 635?

Hi,

I am about to purchase one of the following keyboards, Yamaha MM8 or the Yamaha YPG635. I am an accomplished pianist (but an average user digitally), teach vocal music in a local El. school and have done so for many years. This piano will be for my own personal and professional use.

I am confused as to which piano would better meet my needs. I know no one can answer that question but myself. But what I need to know in both general and specific terms, "What are the differences and similarities of these two instruments?" Yes, I know your going to gsay, "Go to the yamaha website and see what they say about each of the inst." No prob, been there, done that, still unsure.

The price is not a factor because they both are very close in price. If anyone out there has either of these two inst. and would like to commet about your experiences, that would be great too.

Thanks ahead of time to anyone who wants to take the time to answer.

Musically,
Tom

Yamaha MM 8 vs YPG 635
by: Alfred

Dear Tom: You might elicit an answer faster, and be better off visiting a Yamaha Dealership where they might have both models for a hands-on test and comparison. You are 100% right that ONLY YOU CAN BE THE FINAL JUDGE. It's very likely that any member who has one or the other unit will tend to tout it to the point where you may continue to have doubt. As you realize, this Forum is not an arm of the Yamaha Corp, and apart from the descriptions provided by the webmaster (titles to left of this message)our contributions deal mainly with questions/problems/comments encountered with the instruments we play, and we look forward to hearing from you once you've acquired yours.

Yamaha MM 8 vs YPG 635
by: Steve

Hi Tom,
I own the YPG-635. I absolutely love it. I bought it about a year ago with the pedals, bench, and accessories for about $900 new. I was brought up playing classical music on uprights and grands. I wanted more of a "piano" with some digital options. I've also owned and played many synthesizers and digital pianos. The questions that you must answer for yourself first are:

1. What do you want to accomplish with your new keyboard?
2. Are you interested more in playing, or producing, "one man band or orchestra"?
3. What type of response and feel do you want from the keyboard?
4. Do you want or need many different "adjustable" sounds, full midi in/out, effects etc.., or just basic good sounds.

From quickly comparing the specs of both keyboards, I've noticed one that caught my eye the most. That was the polyphony. The MM8 has only 32, while the YPG has 64. This is especially important when considering using sustain, which uses polyphony available, like using more notes, if that makes sense.
The MM8 is more of a workstation, arranger synthesizer, while the YPG is more of a piano with some nice added features. You have to ask yourself, what is your preference. For example, my current setup is of the following:
YPG-635, Zoom R16 (16 track digital recorder/mixer/audio interface/controller surface). Zoom RT-223 RythmTrak,(drum and bass machine). Also external DAW software, for computer recording/editing/mixing. Not a very expensive setup, but does everything I need it too. So when looking, remember you also have computer options to expand your horizons too.
Also, as Alfred had mentioned, you must physically play and compare the two, before considering either one. You may find a different model that you'd like even more.
Best of luck, and let us know what you've decided upon,
Steve

by: Anonymous

I have a mac and a YPG635. There are MAC midi drivers but not much else. The story I have heard is that Yamaha had a falling out with Apple so the official Yamaha software to push files to the keyboard (Music Downloader) and the Yamaha version of "Itunes" that lets you buy there music, does not run on MAC.

You can hook the MAC to keyboard with a USB cable (like a printer) and play tunes from midi files on the MAC or a midi editor.

Then I removed the USB, loaded the files (.MID) from my computer on to the USB. I checked that the files were there under the USER FILES Directory.
Then I inserted the USB back into the keyboard. The USB Icon lights up on the display.
Then I use the press FILE CONTROL,MENU button then CATEGORY to get to LOAD then the CATEGORY buttons to locate the file but it doesn't see the files in the LOAD screen.

Loading Midi files from USB
by: Skeeve

I believe the solution is to first create a folder on your USB thumb drive called "User Files" and put all the MIDI's in there. After that, the keyboard will see the files and also see other folders within the User Files folder to at least 1 deep.

I made the same mistake, too, and it took quite a while to find that in the manual.

RE: Onboard Speakers
by: Anonymous

When you plug in either headphones, line cable, etc.. to the 1/4" output jack, it automatically cuts off the on board speakers. Short of ripping the back off and re-soldering jumper wires, there is nothing you can do about it. What I have done:
Ran to Radio Shack, purchased a 1/4" stereo male to dual 1/8" stereo female, adapter. This way you can plug in computer speakers, headphones, or run a line into your computer for audio. There are a number of ways you can hook things up. For instance, out of my YPG-635, I have a 1/4" line cable which plugs into my Zoom R16 multi-track recorder. Then out of my Zoom is where I hooked up the adapter, as stated above. Now I can use headphones, as well as speakers, and also record into my computer. I have a line in, to my computer's sound card. Hope this helped a little.

Yamaha YPG - 635 for MAC

by Kagan
(UT)

I'm certain that this question has come up quite a bit, but I am still currently running in garage band. I certainly didn't think that this would be my problem when I bought this keyboard. My specifications were: 88 keys, grand sensitivity, and general MIDI input to use it as a controller.

I previously used, and still have, a M-Audio 88 Key MIDI controller. It worked fine, but for fast piano runs, the sensitivity is a joke. I really needed the grand weighting.

Anyone interested in the YPG - 635 for this should definitely consider. Great weight, and overall well put together. I just never figured my issue would fall under OS problems. This keyboard is only being acknowledged under my windows partition of my mac.

I can't say that I'm to happy, and it would be really greatly appreciated if someone could direct me to an under the table download to make this keyboard work as a MIDI controller through mac, and logic and garage band.

Thanks :D

You install the MAC driver and you're golden. Connect the Keyboard to the MAC via USB and the MAC should recognize it. It works for GarageBand and Logic for me.

YPG 635
by: Alfred

Dear Kate: I know of no keyboard which does not have a Transpose feature, and I'm guessing you want to play your unit with someone on another instrument which has a different pitch. You might also want to accompany yourself as you sing. Anyway, your Owner's manual should explain the steps for Transposing. If it doesn't do not hesitate to come back and I'll be happy to oblige.
Thanks for your visit and good luck.

Compare YPG 635 to YPG 535. What's the difference?

by Kathy Haines
(Lecanto, FL)

What are the trade off's between the YPG 635 and the YPG 535? I am considering the 535 but don't want to be disappointed with the quality of the keyboard and real piano feel.

The difference is...
by: Anonymous

My church has the YPG-635 and I just got the YPG-535 for Christmas and honestly, the only difference I can think of is that the YPG-635 has a full weighted keyboard, whereas the 535 has a lightly weighted, almost weightless keyboard. I actually prefer the weighted keys of the 635 but the weighted keys also add a lot physical weight to the keyboard itself. The 535 is probably around 30 pounds whereas I think the 635 is more around 50 pounds. Also, I'm gonna be doing a lot of travel with my 535 so I think, though I prefer the weighted keys, the weightless keys might be better in the long run.

If I find anymore differences I'll tell you! Hope this helps!

YPG-635 has more improvement than ypg-535. It has easier guides for beginners. And the quality of the tones are upgraded.

Yamaha YPG-635 Keyboard Display Screen Malfunction

by Cindy Welch
(Palmetto, FL)

When I turned on my Yamaha YPG-635 Keyboard today, my display screen has moved the display to where I can only read half of the information. I am not sure what has caused this and I definitely do not know how to repair it. Please help. It moved over to the right only showing me the left half of the screen.

Yamaha YPG 635 Display
by: Anonymous

Dear Cindy: If you are using an Adaptor as a power source fcr your unit, 1) It is possible that its Cord is internally frayed, 2) Its Plug may be dirty, 3) Its secondary winding may be defective. Any of these MIGHT be causing the problem. As a less expensive alternative than contacting a qualified technician, you can replace the Adaptor (w/a Yamaha PA 150 Adaptor).

The defect can also be as simple as a loose or dirty Connector in the Display Assembly (or more serious)and best remedied by a qualified (preferably Yamaha-authorized) technician. Please do us the favor of posting a follow-up message in this Forum to let us know how you fare. Thanks and good luck.

Found the fix. Turn off keyboard for 20 minutes. Unplug power cord from electrical source and keyboard for 20 minutes. Plug back in and turn back on. Worked like a charm.

Yamaha YPG 635 Display
by: Alfred

Dear Cindy: I take it you are the one who posted the last messaage, and I am glad you seem to have found the answer to the Display problem. Keep what I said earlier in mind if the problem rears its ugly head again. What you describe could have been a temporary dip in voltage from the wall outlet, triggering less-than-optimum-performance of the keyboard's Display. I am happy for you that the unit seems to be functioniong normally again. Keep well, and do not hesitate to return to the Forum if you feel we csn be of further assistance.

Display problem
by: Mary

My display window shows stripes over it all. Only half of the screen is readable. I tried the suggestion of unplugging both the keyboard and the adapter. I tried it 3 times but no result. I bought a new adapter but that did not work either.
