Expansion Packs in the Tyros 5
« on: December 04, 2017, 10:10:24 AM »

I am still getting used to my new Tyros 5, I try to learn something new every day.
Today is expansion packs, i have taken out the 1GB flash drive, and replaced it with a used 2GB flash drive , which I purchased  on e-bay. You tubed the instructions, everything went ok, purchased a cheap expansion pack on e-bay, sounds great through the Tyros.
the question I would like to ask is can I just keep adding Expansion packs until I fill up the 2GB drive. I noticed that whilst the first one was loading it was formatting, i DO NOT WANT TO LOOSE THE FIRST PACK I HAVE PUT ON THE HARD DRIVE IF I PUT ANOTHER ONE ON THE HARD DRIVE. I am saving the packs on my MacBook incase I loose them.

I have put this on another thread, but I will ask the same question hear, I have a Church Expansion pack for my S950, will Yamaha upgrade this pack for a Tyros 5, or do i have to purchase the pack again.

Thank You

The expansion packs in your T5 are determined by the expansion packs loaded/enabled in the Yamaha Expansion Manager app (running on Windows or OS X).  So long as your packs remain loaded and enabled in the Expansion Manager app, they will continue to get downloaded to the T5, even when you add new ones in Expansion Manager.  The formatting takes place each time you updated the T5 from the Expansion Manager.  Basically, it cleans out the expansion memory, then re-downloads each pack you have selected.  You can continue doing this until you fill-up the 2GB of expansion memory.  Amazing how fast it goes, though...

Hi emasters

Thank you for the information, I had a feeling the flash drive  would fill up quickly, thats why I put a 2GB inside the unit.
