If the files have an extension of .reg, the answer is no. If it's .rgt, the answer is probably.

Cheers,
Fred

Hi bhergar56,

I am not aware of any software that can be used to convert Registration files in the old .reg format used by the PSR-2000 into the current .rgt format.

Apart from that, I don't think this would make any sense. In order to make the best possible use of the new Styles and Voices of your SX900, you should create your Registrations on the SX900 from scratch.


P.S.
The program "PSRREG" may help you:
>>> https://www.heikoplate.de/psrreg.html

I haven't used it myself, but it offers, among others, the following functions for Registrations archive files in the old .reg format:

• Displaying the properties of registrations on screen.
• Generation of a htm- or txt-file with the protocol of all Registrations of an archive, including title, style, bank-numbers, place-numbers, tempo and voices.


Best regards,
Chris

No doesn't work. I have a PSR 2000 and tried 100 times to convert the REG to RGT but no.

Thank you all for your support, as Overover says, I will have start from scratch  >:(. Yes, I understand that I will have new and better styles and voices now,  but imagine starting from cero! I do not have my old PSR 2000'anymore in order to see how each Registration was constructed, so I will have to figure it out again. Thanks.

Hi bhergar56,

as I mentioned above, you can use the PC program "PSRREG" to make a list with the protocol of all Registrations of each .reg archive file, including title, style, tempo and voices. Please refer to the RSRGEG Manual, pages 2 - 6, and see also the attached picture.
>>> https://www.heikoplate.de/zips/psrreg_eng.zip

To get ideas for good-sounding Voice combinations, I recommend listening to the OTS (One Touch Settings) of the SX900 Preset Styles. OTS Voice settings that you like can be saved as Registrations.

Please also use the free Bonus Playlist that you can download from the SX900 download page. You can also load the included Registration files manually (without using the Playlist function). These Registrations will also give you lots of suggestions for Keyboard Voice settings and Style suggestions.
>>> https://uk.yamaha.com/en/products/musical_instruments/keyboards/arranger_workstations/psr-sx900/downloads.html#product-tabs

You can also use all Music Finder files (.mfd) from earlier models. When importing a Music Finder file (via the Playlist function) a Playlist file is automatically created, and more importantly, a Registration Bank file (.rgt) is automatically created for each Music Finder Record (Song title). (Refer to pages 91/92 of the SX900 Reference Manual.) If you need download sources for Music Finder files, just get in touch here. :)


Best regards,
Chris

The styles of the 2000 can be downloaded from PSR TUTORIAL if you want them.

Also remember that you now have three right hand voices as opposed to two on the 2000.

Thanks a lot Chris, I downloaded the PSRREG program, and tested with some few Registration files made in the PSR 2000. When using the Protocol button in the app,  it gives you the opportunity to save the information for each Registration file in “Text”  format file,  each field  (song name, style, multipad, bank, part, tempo, main, layer, left, and settings) separated by blanks or in a “htm”  format. I preferred the text format because it allows me to export the information to an excel file and have all the information organized and separated by columns. Is wonderful and very useful because it permits me, at least, to recover some information of the old PSR 2000 and with this base start constructing the new registrations in the PSR SX 900. Again thanks a lot.

Best regards Bernardo
