Hi Carol,

Is it happening each time on the same button number? If so could be the pad is wearing underneath?

« Last post by Ingar on Today at 12:53:15 AM »
Yes I suspect that. Guess I have to keep use my thump as a scrolltool. But maybee a pagedown function will work if it parts the page in two? What do you think about that? Mabybee i can miss a line or two?

Tyros 5 (SFF2) / Re: Can I change the LSB Bank# in YEM?
« Last post by Joe H on Yesterday at 05:47:24 PM »
I have reported this issue to Yamaha.  I don't think you can edit the MSB... but the LSB yes.  In the MENU at the top there is an option to change the LSB of the pack.  If the Bank is already being used you will have to move that pack to a different Bank.  then you can drag the pack you want to the specific Bank you wish.

PSR-S910/S710 (SFF2) / Re: Used S910 or S900

Sorry, I have not directly experienced the sound of a 970 so have no basis for comparison.  I think when the 970 first arrived some members of this Forum commented negatively on its sound, but changed their opinions after making equalization adjustments. You can probably do a Forum search in the 970 area to find and review those postings.

Tyros 5 (SFF2) / problem with tyros 5 registrations
« Last post by chirp on Yesterday at 04:10:22 PM »
I have a Tyros 5. I have had it for about a year and a half and i use it when we do gigs. I have programmed about 150 registration settings into my tyros. I use one registration per song. I have noticed lately that with some registrations, the first time I push the button I don't get the proper settings (It almost seems like a default setting for the keyboard voices). If I press the same button a second time then I get the proper settings for that song. I have noticed this on maybe 6 - 8  registrations and not on the same bank of registrations. The "default voices" are the same ones each time. Can anyone tell me what is going on and how to fix this problem?
Thanks
Carol

Hello J,

Thank you very much for your impressions of these keyboards. You have provided some useful tips.

Are you familiar with the S970? The reason I ask is that I find that to be quite harsh in comparison with the S900 and for that reason would not buy one. Would the S910 be warmer than the S970 do you think?

Best wishes,

Richard.

Tyros 5 (SFF2) / Can I change the LSB Bank# in YEM?
« Last post by chony on Yesterday at 02:35:28 PM »
I got bought a custom voice pack from a colleague. These voices work with specific styles which he has given me separately.

However when I import the packs into YEM, it changes the LSB numbers, so that the styles cannot find the correct voices.

I know that I can edit MSB numbers, but can I edit the LSB bank number so that the style can reference the correct voices?

I had a 900 and now have a 910.  I think the 900 had a somewhat "warmer" sound that I liked but many owners of that model experienced problems with the display screen, an issue that is expensive to fix and the model is now so old that there is little chance that Yamaha would replace the screen for free as they once did even after the warranty period had ended.

The 910 has more voices (678 vs. 392) and styles (322 vs. 305) than the 900. The 910 can use both the older "SFF1" styles and the current "SFF2" styles and that can be an advantage if you wish to have the widest variety of styles available.

If you use the Music Finder feature you would probably like the fact that the Music Finder on the 910 can use styles that are stored on an attached USB drive.  The 900 Music Finder can only use factory styles and styles that are stored in the keyboard's User Memory area.

The 910's User Memory area is almost twice as large as the 900's, but both are rather small (2.4MB  vs. 1.4 MB).  For this reason it is suggested that you plan on using a USB drive for permanent storage and rely on the User Memory area for temporary storage only regardless of model.

Although both models are discontinued you can still view and compare their specifications:

http://usa.yamaha.com/products/musical-instruments/keyboards/arranger_workstations/psr-s910/

Since production of the 900 stopped when the 910 was introduced it is a certainty that any 900 you obtain will be older than any 910, but actual "wear and tear" on different instruments can vary widely so it would be important to try out the keyboards and also know something about their usage history. Certainly ask about any warranty and return policies that may apply.

All other things being equal, I think the 910 would be the preferred model at this time.  You might check on eBay or similar sites to see what prices are current.  I would think a 900 from a private seller would be in the $500 - $700USD range and a 910 in the $800 - $1000USD range, depending on condition and any extras that might be included.
