Question about loading styles as ppf?
« on: May 19, 2017, 08:19:56 AM »
Hi,

I was wondering about loading styles via YEM. You can pick the styles from a usb or from your hd without using YEM. Is there any advantage to load them via a ppf file and do they use valuable memory from the expansion card? I saw the Golden Oldies (3rd party) style pack on Musicsoft and noticed it is in two formats once bought (talking about the midi version).
1) as a PPF file and 2) as seperate normal style files.

I also saw when reading up ( part of the fun while waiting for my Tyros to arrive :) ) that you can add all sorts of files (PDF, txt, etc.)  and add those to a custom ppf file but what is the difference and why would one want to include a pdf into a ppf?

Perhaps it all become clear once I can actually use YEM but any info on forehand would be nice :)

thanks in advance,

Peter 8)

Hi Peter.

I see no advantage to loading styles as a .ppf  in YEM as a "pack", which then requires you to add the style pack along with other packs to install in your keyboard.  There is actually a disadvantage to loading styles as a pack and that is that if you wish to edit one of those styles later on you will have to save the style as a User Style to your hard drive or USB drive.  Any files installed in a pack are subject to this rule.  You cannot save any edited pack files back to the expansion memory location.

Thanks Joe for clearing that up,

No PPF for styles it is then :)

Peter,

By the way... you can actually add any styles to any pack as "Content".   But as I have noted above, there is not much value in that since any edits once in the keyboard will require they become User Styles... saved back somewhere else.
