question : yamaha drum kits limitation
« on: February 04, 2020, 01:27:29 PM »
hi i am working on converting pa4x styles to yamaha genos so i sampled all the kits but the problem yamaha drums & perc voices are limited from c#0 to f#6  and most of my kits are from c-1 to c9 (note please yamaha update the os so drums are from c-2 to c9) so are there any solution to this problem .....my drums all are in sf2 format if i use them as sound they are right from c-2 to c9 but
in drums c#0 to f#6 and  the style drum& perc part would not let you choose sound only drum kits 

so can we choose sound in main rhythm or sub rhythm channel guys ?

Why should Yamaha update there drum mapping which has suited us for years to allow converts from other manufacturers. Can't see them doing this.

Different companies have used different midi mapping.  Most will have the standard midi drum spec.  the other drums not in the standard midi spec, are additional snares, hats, etc.  Some drum software, has a remap function.  So you can take drums from Addictive drums, and remap to Toontrack, etc. It's been like this for a long time, I don't see any company altering it's midi drum configuration

Yamaha is working on this feature and it will be available on the newer keyboards this year with the release of the next Yamaha expansion manager. For now map all your kits on Awave studio and save them as UVD and wait until the release of the new YEM. Good Luck

A new YEM is coming out? I hope it's far less confusing than the existing one!!
