Changing drum kit in a style
« on: January 12, 2017, 05:35:18 AM »
How to change the drum kit in a style? I am playing with some Indian styles that uses tabla  kits which is tuned to different pitches. If I am playing in certain keys it doesn't match the tuning  of tabla.
The Indian expansion Banks comes with tabla kits in all tunings from c to b. I want to edit the style so I could use a different drum kit. Please help.

Try the Drum Setup function (Reference manual p46) - it lets you pick specific instruments from specific kits to replace the ones being used in the rhythm part, without changing the actual rhythm pattern itself.

I was able to change drum kits as described above, but I think I have to do more editing in order to match the pitch for different tuning. Maybe someone can help with this matter, Been busy with playing styles, hehe.

To my ears, I think it's very good.  It sounds fine in the styles.

Hi there,..
                I got a chance to use a PSR- S970 , and i came to know about Yamaha Expansion Manager(YEM) recently, so i made some tabla samples, and arranged a kit on the YEM.
                 I used to change the pitch of tabla using pitch bend function when recording tabla in RHY1 OR RHY2 in the STYLE CREATOR in my s710. But YEM has improved the scope of Tabla tuning by helping in sampling different pitches(samples in mp3 ,wav etc) of tabla so that you can have a new fresh drum kit of tabla besed on tuning of the instrument tabla( possible by the YEM on all models which has an expansion pack function in it).

                  I just tried adjusting pitches of a self made tabla kit and named them on the basis of their pitch, it is available in the link below.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0Bw6ESIos7NsncWxRZDB6b0VBLVk




It has TABLA KITs on note C,C#,D & D#.. Included BOLS in the kit are GHA KHE OF Baya drum, DHIN DHA DHET of both drums,TA TTA TE TTE NA TIN TUN. of the Dayina drum.
It has a GHADAM KIT of about 2 octaves full sampled Ghadam strikes.
It has a TAPPE KIT , it is a SouthIndian drum widely found in Ganesha festivals and similar festivals in India at street performances.
 
I have included ppi, cpi files for psr-s970 & ppf file in the link.

Hope it will useful...... :)

Hi Rejo,

Doesn't work on PSR S770...

Cheers


Hai Mohan...
happy to hear that you gave my pack a try.
Have you tried all the 3 formats namely cpi, ppi &ppf  on to your YEM software or psr s770? I had made the pack with 2 formats catering the need of psr s970, and the other format a common platform pack. Give all the 3 a try, If it still doesnt work, send me your instruments info file(each model has a different one i guess) it can be exported from your instruments function tab to your usb....
Send me the file something like .n27 in s970 instrument.

Send it to rejos710@gmail.com

Cheers ....
