If you want one file, you can zip all the data.

Given that disk space is so cheap these days, zip is becoming obsolete. I just regularly copy all my data to my computer. Thatís the simplest backup, and easy to retrieve if needed.

Cheers,

Yamaha Keyboards - General / Saving all song arrangement data in one place
« Last post by Nova227 on Yesterday at 06:47:42 PM »
Is it possible to save all data in one unique file.
Why ? this puts everthing in one place so you dont need to worry about getting errors because the source data was moved or changed.
For example;
- style (s) if more than one used in song
- multipad bank (s)
- registeration
- text files

Genos - General / Assignable problem
« Last post by Ken Stenzel on Yesterday at 05:44:16 PM »
I keep getting my assignable buttons changing. I set assignable E to Registration Bank Information and it keep going back to Lyrics which is probably the default setting. Does anyone have any idea why this keeps happening. It is sporratic in that it doesnt happen all the time but does frequently. Should I do a factory reset?
  Thanks

Yamaha Keyboards - General / P125 piano MIDI connection to an arranger.
« Last post by SteveB2187 on Yesterday at 05:38:09 PM »
First of all, please excuse my lack of knowledge regarding a keyboard's USB Type B jack being used for a MIDI connection.

I don't understand why my P125 digital piano doesn't have conventional 5-pin MIDI In's and Out's. If anyone could explain why Yamaha omitted these jacks from some of their keyboards, I would really appreciate it.

As a result, I have no idea how to make a basic MIDI connection between my P125 and my Genos2, which does have the familiar 5-pin MIDI jacks (actually two pairs of them). Thus, being able to use my P125 as a simple weighted-key controller for the Genos2.

Is there a special conversion cable that has a "square" Type B USB plug on one end and a pair of normal MIDI plugs on the other? I've gone searching for such a cable and all I can find are a few Type A to MIDI cables. And if there is such a cable, could somebody direct me toward the purchase of one?

Thanks

Genos - General / Re: Genos Digital recording glitch noise

Makers work very hard at de-noising samples (I personally know some of the people who do this at Yamaha and have talked to them about it) but it's often very difficult or impossible to remove noise from a sample which has the noise from the actual recorded instrument.

True that! I sampled a few of the Yamaha Genos electric piano voices last week. (A whole separate crazy project.) The job forced me to listen carefully and critically to the original sounds (samples). Stuff gets through, especially from those old mechanical electric pianos. Part of the "charm"! :)

It has already been discussed on this forum that the PSR Sx series can not use for example the MFC10 foot controller from Yamaha.

I defer to Etienne since I don't have an SX900 for testing.

I just tested Genos 1 with an external MIDI controller. If I change Port 1 Channel 1 from "SONG" to "RIGHT1", I can send a MIDI Program Change sequence to Genos 1 and it will change the RIGHT1 voice.

If SX900 cannot do this, then you're out of luck, sad to say.

Oh, well, we tried -- pj

The Next Yamaha Keyboard / Re: New PSR SX series
« Last post by pjd on Yesterday at 05:15:18 PM »
When I was actively working in this field, prototypes and pre-production models were in existence way before release dates. Bugs would be ironed out, sounds and features tweaked until the final pre-production models were ready for testing and, perhaps, ready for display to selected distributors and dealers (who would sign NDAs preventing them from speaking about them - and we know that some will occasionally spill the beans a bit early!)

Andy is spot on. Yamaha published a Motif retrospective history and this was -- and probably still is -- their development process.

Yes, there are prototype PSR-SX720 and PSR-SX920 already.

All the best -- pj

Fully agreed, Andy. There's no such thing as the perfect sample...other than the real thing ;D. It's just that some samples are far better than others.

We haven't heard back from Burtoiu. I wonder if the he's found another cause of the distortion?

Thanks Andy

The offending key started working again after i put the keyboard upside down on the stand and blew clean air into the key and it helped but certainly it's not repaired. I have ordered a spare rubber contact strip just in case but will do a clean once that arrives so if the rubber does require replacing I don't have to open the case twice!

To be fair, many instruments and even VST instruments suffer from noise in a few samples (sometimes more). My Roland organ was top of the line, £25K list price, and that has some noise on some notes in some instruments.

Makers work very hard at de-noising samples (I personally know some of the people who do this at Yamaha and have talked to them about it) but it's often very difficult or impossible to remove noise from a sample which has the noise from the actual recorded instrument.

I have a set of VST strings that retailed at over £1000, and even that has some digital noise in the higher notes.

Nothing will ever be perfect. I wish it could be! :)
