Channel adds notes in minor chord
« on: February 23, 2017, 04:42:47 PM »
I've got a Black is Black style such that when I play a minor chord one of the channels plays more notes than when I play a major chord.  Anyone know how to get it to do the same thing no matter what kind of chord I'm playing?

I have a few other styles that do the same thing.

Thx for any insight,
NASAMike

A style file can have up to 16 channels of midi data, but the PSR/Tyros can only play 8 at one time. Which channel plays at any time is determined by the Casm settings, a non midi section appended to the style file.

See the attached listing of one of the style parts. Midi channels 6 and 15 both are directed to the Phrase 1 (midi channel 15), and the chords allowed settings determine which channel plays in response to a given chord type.

Hi Michael,

Just a query about your attached screen dump of MixMaster's 'Casm View'.

Why does the window header at the top say:  "This style will not load into the PSR-S750"?  ???

The style format is shown in the same line as SFF2, which the PSR-S750 supports.

I have not looked at the code, but I suspect that the style is not part of the installed styles. If it is important, please let me know and I will investigate.
