Expand HD on SX900
« on: May 23, 2020, 12:37:13 AM »
Hi guys,


Im just wondering if there is a way to expand my voice capacity on my sx900, either by adding a external hd
or just replacing the on-board one with a much bigger one..


and if both of the above questions are no, then what can i do to maximize the space i have for expansion voices?




Thank you,
Mendel

We have 1 Gb memory for expansion packs and this can not be extended in any way.
  We have four Gb user memory which you can use for registrations ,Styles, Midi Songs etc. Also have two USB ports. I use USB1 port for playlists song WAV files and anything else I want to save and only use USB2 for transferring things to keyboard or USB1.

Is there any way to sacrifice some GB from the space designated for style and songs?

Hi Mendel,

unfortunately no: On the SX900, the Expansion Memory (where the Wave data of Expansion Voices is stored) is 1 GB, and this memory can NOT be expanded. The only way to free some space is deselecting some unneeded Voices (or deselecting / deleting whole Packs) in the YEM. The Expansion Memory is a so called "NAND Flash" memory. This is a very fast memory, similar to the Flash ROM Moduls used on Tyros5. But on SX models and Genos this memory is built-in FIXED. The SX900 has a total of 2 GB of it, but the second GB is used for the Wave data of the PRESET Voices.

The User Memory (4 GB) is a completely different memory. It's a so called "eMMC" memory which is similar to the "SSD" (Solid State Disk) technology. The User Memory also can NOT be expanded (except by using a USB stick). The User Memory can be used for Styles, Registrations, Multi Pads, MIDI files, Audio files (.wav, .mp3), User Voice files (eg .vce) and Text files (.txt). The System Setup data is also stored in the User Memory.


Best regards,
Chris
