Genos - General / Re: Bass Note Programming Bug?

Depends what chord you are playing as the bass follows this.

One more thing. If I just play an A Flat in the bass with no chord at all (You can do this) It starts with the A flat but then as I keep holding the key, the note changes to an F.

Something is definitely very wrong.

You know, the more I think about it, this doesn't make any sense. What if a song calls for you to play a C chord over a G in the bass? You're telling me Genos won't let you do that? I find it very hard to believe that you can't play inversions. So that can't possibly be the problem.

Well, then this really makes no sense. I'm playing an A flat chord.
PSR-SX900/SX700/SX600 / Re: Making one pack from others SX700

Thank you for replying to my query
First to Pityus; I loaded the Church and Christmas pack into my SX700 and spent time, with the detriment of my household duties, playing through ALL the styles; Intros, endings variations and OTS settings. There are nearly 100 bits in there and the combinations are enormous! At least I have listened to the bits.
Now to Bogdan, Thanks you for your informative post. I did this when I had my Genos (only 26 days  >:( ) and again with the SX900 that I had, but getting older my memory is slowing slightly. I now remember to tick the ones that I want to put into the pack. Step 4 only lets me make a smaller pack removing the bits that I don't want. Now how do I mix other voices and styles from other packs into one pack for ME.  I like some of the voices in the Church Organ pack and some of the voices and styles in the Latin pack. Can I put these together into one pack and call it Mijn?
Kind regards, Denn.

Totally Agree,
  The better it sounds the more you want to play it.

Genos - General / Bass Note Programming Bug?
« Last post by wagtunes on Yesterday at 11:02:12 PM »
Hi All:

I'm going to try to explain this as clearly as I can.

I programmed a style. In the style is a bass part. It's very simple. It's one note. I saved the style with the one touch sounds and went to play it. I hit the root bass note (in this song it's A flat) and what happens is that while I'm holding the note down the A flat changes to an F.

I looked at another preset style to make sure the bass settings were the same. They are. But the bass note still changes from an A flat to an F.

I am so confused. What can possibly be causing this?
PSR-E Series / Re: Yamaha PSR-EW425 Dual Voice
« Last post by SciNote on Yesterday at 10:10:16 PM »
I was assuming that I could combine any two voices no matter how inappropriate that combination would be and that 'Big Brother Yamaha' was not going to 'guide me' to what they believe to be appropriate. As I said previously, I see the 'DUAL' display for some voices and I guess you're saying that at this point (I'll assume the volume default for the main voice here) that I can directly go to the 'SHIFT+DUAL' and grab my second voice. For these second voices I like to use the brass or woodwind category, but the trouble seems to start here, but I'll try that when I get home.....I'm at the tire shop now with a long wait.

For the most part, you can use whatever dual voice you want.  There are just a few exceptions -- these "double voices" where Yamaha felt that, for the overall tone to have the best quality, it was necessary to use two tone generators -- the main voice and the dual voice -- to combine tones to make the overall sound.  Kind of like using two oscillators on a synthesizer, instead of just one, to get a more complex and robust sound.  On my keyboard, I think there are about 30 such sounds.  You said that if you select one of these sounds, where "dual" is displayed, that you could just use shift+dual to grab your second voice.  Yes, you can change the dual voice -- but remember, if "dual" came on automatically when you selected the main voice, then this is a voice that Yamaha set up to use both tone generators for the overall sound labeled in the main voice.  If you then manually change the dual voice, then you will change the overall tone of what the main voice was meant to sound like, because you'll be changing half the tone.

Another example is piano/strings.  At least on my keyboard, that is a "double voice", with the piano sound being the main voice, and the strings automatically set in the dual voice, with the dual voice mode automatically turned on.  Yes, you can change the dual voice manually, but then you will no longer have the strings part of the piano/strings voice, and instead you'll have just a piano combined with whatever dual voice you select.  Remember, this is only for main voices where the dual voice is turned on automatically.  If you select any other voice where dual is not turned on automatically, then although Yamaha does put a "suggested" dual voice in the dual voice slot (without automatically turning the dual voice on), you can change this dual voice to mostly whatever you want, and it won't affect the main voice.

Also keep in mind that at least some of these "double voices", where Yamaha sets up main and dual voices for the overall tone, are represented in the XG Lite group of voices, and those (at least on my keyboard), are all regular single-tone voices that can freely be combined with a dual voice or act as a dual voice without losing any of the voice's original tone.  An example is the piano/strings.  My keyboard has a piano/strings in XG Lite that is just a regular single tone -- it does not turn on dual voice, and it can be fully layered with another tone.  But the tradeoff is that the XG Lite piano/strings is not as full and vibrant of a sound as the main piano/strings that uses both the main and dual voices for the overall sound.
