They are telling you what type of styles they are that make up the total listed. Session, DJ, Free Play etc.

Yes that is correct:
Voices: 1337+480 voices+drumkit
Styles: 525
And I never ever use all those voices and styles, not even half of it  ;)

I've played around with some CVP-709 preset voices in the electric piano category, and there are some S.Art! voices that sound really good and unique, but there are a few that sound the same as the Sweet! voices. The SX900 has a lot of ROM potential and can handle even more than the presets already onboard.

A fact for which I'm very grateful! There are many times when a student has had issues with an S.Art voice doing one of its built in 'tricks', perhaps because the student is playing too legato (if that's possible - and good teachers do instil legato playing from day one!). The only solutions are for them to play slightly non-legato (which they often find tricky) or to use the almost identical non S.Art version of the voice - often tucked away in Legacy these days.
