CREATING MULTI-PADS FROM WAV. FILES
« on: August 18, 2017, 05:05:20 PM »
(TYROS 4)
 Is there a way to create your own multi pads by using audio samples or recordings ? Not playing something on the keyboard..There are sounds in the multi pad selections that are choir voices etc. I would like to create some of my own using a wav. or MP3 file. Any ideas ??

 Thanks;
 JE

As far as I know (not so far) multipads are midi's and it is not possible to make a midi from wav or mp3. However, on some of the packs (ie the Mexicans) there are multipad recordings from real voices, like the grito's. They must be little wav-files but I don't know how they make them.

Tyros 4 does not support audio multipads. The T5 does, but not the T4.

You can create a voice from a WAV, then use that voice in a multipad, if you're willing to go to the effort.

No you can't convert Audio pads to midi ones. Audio Pads are usually used for snipping parts of singers from songs so you can have someone singing to your performance.

Jeff, the 770 does support audio multipads, you can create them from wav files on your USB.

NB A multipad bank has to be either all-midi or all-audio. You choose the type when you create a new multipad bank.

Hi Derek :
Many thanks for your interesting reply ! 😀
How to proceed ?
To be found in the manual ?
Do audio mps follow chords ?

I cannot play any T4/T5 Vocal multipads ( be bop etc. ).
 Why not ?

Your reaction would be very much appreciated.
Thanks, Jeff

Hi Jeff,

In answer to your questions...

How to proceed ?     -    Read the section 'Creating a Multi Pad with Audio files (Audio Link Multi Pad)' starting on page 78 of the Owner's Manual.

To be found in the manual ?      -   See above

Do audio mps follow chords ?    -  Of course not - they simply play back '.wav' audio files!  You can't adjust their tempo either!

I cannot play any T4/T5 Vocal multipads ( be bop etc. ).   Why not ?           -   MIDI MPs can only use preset or expansion voices that are available on the keyboard.  Your S770 does not have the necessary 'Vocal' voices used in these MPs, so if you play one, it will be silent.


Regards

Ian

Hi Jeff,
Here is a sample song I made trying to use those audio pads.   I took snippets of Laurel and Hardy audio off the internet and made
4 pads,inserted them in one of their tunes from Way out West called Trail of the lonesome Pine.
Perhaps a little crude, but seems there is no end to how one can use the audio MP function.   I did this on the s970 .   
Hope it helps in the pursuit of using this function... good practice.   Here is Laurel and Hardy...... cheers    elaine

Having audio multipads which can pitch shift, and respond to tempo changes, isn't that mad an idea .. the 770/970 can already do this when playing back single audio files.

There's a strong suspicion that the G**** might be able to pull off this trick in multipads and styles though ...!
