All of the styles in this collection are available on the Styles Library that was introduced in January, 2012.
The full collection includes 19,844 files and requires 660 MB of disk space. The zipped download option uses 11 files and requires 198 MB of disk space.
The Styles #1 Collection, released in 2007, contains over 19,000 Yamaha styles for the PSR3000/2100/2000, and the Tyros1/Tyros2. The collection includes some styles without OTS that can be used on earlier Yamaha keyboards like the PSR9000s & PSR740/640/540 models. Utility files are included that allow you to convert styles from one Yamaha keyboard for use on another Yamaha keyboard. All of these styles can also be loaded and played in Yamaha arranger keyboards introduced after 2007.
Original Yamaha Styles
The "OrigYam" folder has the internal preset styles for a many of the Yamaha arranger keyboards. Styles in the "OtherKbds" folder have styles that originated on arranger keyboards from other manufacturers and have been converted to run on the PSR/Tyros keyboards.
Styles in the "SongStyles" folder are styles that have been renamed to represent the song that the style was designed for. Some of these may be original preset styles, but many are styles where the tempo and the voices have also been adjusted to work well with the named song. The "Gig" Disks from the PSR Tutorial site, which have proven to be so popular, are available under the "SongStyles" folder.
Styles by Genre
Styles in the "Genre" folder generally represent styles named after a particular music genre, e.g. Country or Foxtrot or Ballad or March etc. In the various collections there, however, you may still find some styles that have a "song" name. The subfolders may indicate the instrument the styles were created on or for, i.e. PSR2000, PSR2100, PSR300, Tyros. There are, of course, a lot of styles in the "Tyros" folder(s) that may work perfectly fine on the PSR3000. Remember Michael Bedesem's MidiPlayer can always be used to convert a style if you need to for you particular keyboard.
One Touch Settings
Most of the styles for the later keyboards include OTS. Styles for earlier keyboards did not have OTS. Styles without OTS can be found in the NoOTS-4V or the NoOTS-2V folders. The "4V" stands for 4 Variations (Main A,B,C,D). "2V" is mostly 2 variations, but may also include some styles with 0, 1, or 3 variations.
With the literally thousands of styles available here, you have much to explore and can look forward to many hours, days, months, of musical fun and enjoyment!
