A 71-year-old boy and his Psr 510
« on: November 12, 2016, 10:30:28 AM »
.I have a Yamaha Psr510 keyboard and I'm selling it. There are some styles I like a lot. I am a layman on the subject so my question is: How do I copy and save the styles of this keyboard. I believe Midiox does that. I would like to copy all styles together. Please, I'm waiting for your help.

The styles won't work on later models because they changed the format.  I was able to find most of them years ago on a slightly newer model, one of the first after the change in format, but I don't recall the model number.

Wow...I had a 510 about 20 years ago.  510 ='s Floppy Disk right?  I had some Styles on an old 510 disk that I wanted to see how they would sound on my new 900.....not good.  Time and technology keep moving on and the Tyros 4 I am now using will someday be a "relic" and worthless. 

My? to you Adir:  What Styles on the 510 are you talking about?  I am sure they are still available somewhere.  And, what KB do you want to use them on?

I had a PSR 510.  It pre-dated the floppy drive and there was no way to import or export styles.  The info I got from Yamaha Japan showed the PSR 510 and the PSR 1700 used the same identical MIDI Data Formats and system exclusive messages.

Attached are the PSR 1700 styles.  I can't say for sure they are all the same identical styles as the PSR 510, but I suspect many are the same

Yes!  The PSR 1700 styles were much the same.  I got the Bo Diddly style that way, years ago.

The PSR-510 didn't predate the floppy drive -- it just didn't offer it as a feature.  The PSR-510 came out around 1993.  It's predecessor, the PSR-500, which came out around 1991, also didn't have a floppy drive, but the step-up model of the same era, the PSR-600, DID have a floppy.  For some reason, there was no "PSR-610" that I know of, but from pictures I've seen on the Internet, the PSR-1700 seems pretty close to that idea.

I had a PSR-510 back then, and I've since then thought about picking up a used one.  It has one feature that is not available on the later models, including the PSR-E433 that I have, the newest version of that keyboard (PSR-E453), and I believe this is also the case for at least some of the higher end PSR-S models, and that feature is the ability to combine two voices on the left side of a split keyboard.  On the PSR-510, you can split the keyboard, and have separate dual voices on the right and left sides of the keyboard, for a total of four different voices playing from the keyboard at once.

Adair, where are you?  Near Florida, USA?  Have you already sold your PSR-510?  If not, how much are you looking to get?  Honestly, I doubt I'd get one right now, but I'm always checking out what's available!

OK...perhaps I did not have a 510....but I did have a 500 series KB and it had a Floppy Disk.....which one was it?  I don't remember.  I looked and I still have a few old Floppy Disks from the 90's.  I think I purchased it around 1996?  Flip

In 1996, I got my PSR-520, which also didn't have a floppy drive, but the PSR-620 of the same era did inlude the floppy.  Are you sure it wasn't that?
