Using Cubase to create styles
« on: May 28, 2016, 11:35:49 AM »
Hi all

I have a question..I am new to the forums so please excuse my ignorance as I am still learning on the Tyros 5.

Can you use a program like Cubase to create a style? I know it is generally used for midi.

If so how would you do it?

Would be great especially for those intricate parts and to add variations to a style.

Thanks in advance.

PS I have just seen another almost similar post on this. I understand that the style has a midi and non midi section. What would be the midi and what would be the non midi parts? Can anyone please explain this to me.

Also there were mention of Mixmaster although the link does not work. Can someone please post a working link?

Take a look over here at the link below, I posted some style templates for Cubase and other software.
(free programs) or StyleMagic or StyleWorks (commercial programs) to create the CASM (non-MIDI chunk in the style). 

OTS is another non-MIDI chunk you will need to create on the keyboard for R1, R2 and R3 (Tyros only).

Thanks Joe..  :D Yes it is quite a lot of jargon I need to get to know... sigh

Could someone please explain what CASM is and how it influences the style?

Thanks

From the Style File Description Document available here: http://www.wierzba.homepage.t-online.de/stylefiles.htm


CASM section
The information in the CASM section is necessary if the midi section does not follow the rules
for “simple” style files, which do not necessarily need a CASM section (see chapter 5.2.1 for
the rules). The CASM section gives instructions to the instrument on how to deal with the midi
data.

This includes:

· Assigning the sixteen possible midi channels to 8 accompaniment channels which are
available to a style in the instrument (9 = sub rhythm, 10 = rhythm, 11 = bass, 12 = chord
1, 13 = chord 2, 14 = pad, 15 = phrase 1, 16 = phrase 2). More than one midi channel
may be assigned to an accompaniment channel.

· Allowing the PSR to edit the source channel in StyleCreator. This setting is overridden by
the instrument if the style has > 1 midi source channel assigned to an accompaniment
channel. In this case the source channels are not editable in the instrument and external
software must be employed.

· Muting/enabling specific notes or chords to trigger the accompaniment. In practice, only
chord choices are used.

· The key that is used in the midi channel. Styles often use different keys for the midi data.
Styles without a CASM must be in the key of CMaj7.

· How the chords and notes are transposed as chords are changed and how notes held
through chord changes are reproduced.

· The range of notes generated by the style.

See chapter 5.2 for a more detailed description of the usage of this data.

Eldreddb,

There is a CASM View in MixMaster that displays the CASM settings in a list format.  You could also download a demo copy of StyleMagic and see a more graphic representation of the CASM parameters / settings.

Just load any style into these programs, then select CASM View in MixMaster or in StyleMagic click on the colored style Part label in the Mixing Console screen to open the CASM Editor.

Joe H
