(March 2010) The PSR Tutorial CD-ROM has been completely updated and revised for 2010. This PSR Tutorial CD-ROM ($20) is available to all Supporting Members of the PSR Tutorial web site and forum. The new, updated CD-ROM, includes all of the material from the "Music" and the "Utilities" sections of this web site plus 5,000 midi files from the PSR Performers and 2,100 style files from the "Styles" section. A brief description of the contents is provided below. [Note: all of the material on this CD-ROM is included on the 2012 4 GB USB drive.]
In the 2010 version of the PSR Tutorial CD-ROM, all of the material can be accessed via your web browser. The CD has, in effect, a miniature web site with four main sections: Songs, Styles, Learning Center, and Utilities. For a more detailed explanation of how to access the files on this CD and for additional insight into the contents, see the CD2010 Help Page.
You will find an alphabetical index to all the PSR Performer songs just like the MIDI index in the web site's Songs section. In addition, all of the top song lists are includes here as well as all the fake book listings and the full 44,000 record fake book songs index.
A large style collections are available, of course, on the two Styles CDs. However, to get a new user started, this CD-ROM does include a couple thousand styles. The style conversions from Onacimus Sayaham have been noted for their exceptional excellence. He has tuned many of the original Yamaha preset styles from earlier (and later) keyboards for use on the PSR-3000. These are consolidated in his "Standard Styles Collection" and the "Mega Styles Collection". Each of these collections have almost 700 styles and both are included on the CD-ROM. For owners of the newest Yamaha keyboards, the original preset styles for the Tyros3 and the PSR-S910 are also included. Styles should be interchangeable for these two keyboards and will also play on the newest CVP509 keyboards.
I have labeled the third section the "Learning Center" since it includes primarily material that can be read and studied from your computer. It includes all the Articles from this site as well as all the Projects. All the "gigging" advice from the Pro Clinic is included as well as the complete "Secrets of Chords and Chord Progressions" course. Finally, I am including the manuals for all of the keyboards from the PSR-3000 onward.
The last section reproduces the material found in our "Utilities" section. On the CD-ROM, however, all of the Bedesem utilities are included as well as the Yamaha and the Wierzba utility programs. The descriptions of the remaining utilities are provided as well as the links to the author's web sites so you can always go and download the most recent versions.
I had hoped to include some recent videos as well, but the above material, over 9,000 files taking up about 650MB of space has just bout filled the CD-ROM. I hope new users will find this material useful and, since it is all provided on the CD-ROM, they can take their time reviewing the articles and have all this reference material available whenever it is needed.
