Tyros 4 (SFF2) / Re: Tyros 4 multipads

Multipad settings are saved with the style so can be changed and set to the OTS and saved to a user style, that way it is loaded every time you select the edited user style, once the style is re-loaded just press the multipad buttons as normal. Multipad can be set to auto-start in a registration if required.

Thanks Joe, I'll try that.
Kind regards Marcus

I have never been over keen on the T4 multipad selection when using the main style variation buttons abcd.
Is there a method to set the multipad choice to perhaps only four choices it can open each time a multi is pushed.
Some of the Yamaha settings are rubbish for the styles.

Multi-pads are midi files, while audio pads are audio files, which is a totally different format. Someone with a genos will have to look into this in depth, which I cannot.

Good luck,

Kaarlos, I just downloaded your registration and I will delve into it tomorrow when I get home from having some medical tests performed. Unfortunately, I do not own a Genos, but despite this, I still may be able to determine where the problem lies.

Good luck,

Hello Yamaha Arranger / Workstation Users + Fans,

So after a lot of consideration, thinking, trying different things out, reading a lot of "PSR Tutorial" posts, opinions (some brilliant, some pathetic), I made a decision. I purchased a PSR-S970!! I got a very good price on a new unit - Yamaha lowered it to ~$1800, Amazon gave me a 10% off coupon for the 970 + accessories, and I get an extra 10% off that for putting it on an Amazon CC. I have been playing it and playing around with it for 3 weeks now. It has great sounds, I have gotten used to the keybed, and am beginning to learn how arrangers work.

I have thought seriously about a TOTL arranger and spent time comparing the Korg Pa4x vs Genos. I also compared the PA1000 vs the s975 vs the s970 vs Roland, etc. I read many opinions and reviewed hours upon hours of YT videos to arrive at this place. I have always favored Yamaha's sound over Korg and continue to do so. Truth be told, up until today I was still considering a Genos, but decided to keep the 970. Here's why:
  • I have been out of music for so long I need to I have to start from the beginning with new keyboard OS
  • Spending time recovering my playing is as important learning the tech
  • I can definitely hear the difference in the Genos, even though I have only heard it on YT, but the 970 still sounds superior to my old keyboards
  • Genos requires 3-4X the investment of the 970 at this time
  • There is more to learn about the 970 - I have only scratched the surface
  • S970 is self-contained for practice, very versatile, good enough to play on a gig (IMO)
  • While I miss having 76-88 keys sometimes, 61 keys is an acceptable compromise at this point.
It is time to continue developing playing, learn the instrument, learn how to use its capabilities, set up a casual concert, gig or two, and most of all, have fun. I'm sure I will be annoying everyone here asking questions, etc. Thank you to all that helped me with this!!

Hi Mark,

What delightful arrangement and playing on your Genos.

- Royce
Hello Kaarlo,
  Firstly the user section on your Genos is now very large and will probably accept all that you had saved on previous Hard Drive. As you know the user memory now takes the place of the hard drive. If you are sending a registration to someone that has used third party styles and you want it to work as saved then of course you must add the styles used to that folder so that they can be linked for the bank to work correctly.
  I really believe that registration banks are the best way to go on any keyboard and are very powerful. The first thing to do before starting to set up is decide what you want the bank to do and save along with the voices and style.Set the ticks up in the memory. If you want a Midi or Audio song to be selected when selecting registration  then Tick the boxes. If you use effects pedals then tick those too. Once you have put your ticks in they will stay there for every bank you set up.
  If you are using third party banks then unfortunately they will not show what was ticked at the time so for your use you will need to just resave them using your settings and then resave the bank.
  I tryuly have never heard of banks forgetting there settings once they have been saved this way.

Thanks Eileen, I believe I have in general understood your clear advice. Here comes a bank I made to-day. I wish to thank you for the trouble of having a look at it.

To make it easy easy to check the memory for accuracy I did the following;

I used only preset styles in the order they are listed under Jazz advancing to the next style with every button 1 -  10
button 1 had  style volume 101 with volume increasing with 1 increment with every next button to volume 110
button one had tempo 121 with tempo increasing by one increment with every new button to tempo  130

I used only preset voices in the order they are on the  piano preset voice list advancing to the next voice with every button
button 1 had  voice volume 101 with volume increasing with 1 increment with every next button to volume 110 on button 10

button 1 had   C#  =   + 1  transpose  advancing by one half note with every next button

was set to 127 on all 10 buttons 
was set to  BOB = Louis Armstrong


On the “what to be memorized” page everything was clicked

On the Freeze page nothing was clicked and it was kept off.


Nothing was clicked on the Parameter Lock page


(To test whether the memory on my Genos is reliable) What one should see on the main and on the small display and of course hear: With each button a new style with intro & new voice + increase in  style tempo + increase in style volume + increase in Right hand volume +  increase in transpose.  I have done quite a few of this type of tests, so I could send you many, but I wanted to make this one from scratch, PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND KEEP THE VOLUME AT A MINIMUM AS OFTEN IT IS NOT WHAT IT WAS MEANT TO BE.
