Entertainer & Euro Dance expansion packs conversion
« on: April 19, 2018, 10:51:22 PM »
Hi all,

I was wondering if anybody out there (like me) is also STILL waiting for the conversion of the "Entertainer" and "Euro Dance" expansion packs. (not the 2016 versions the older ones)
I bought them at the time when I had my Tyros 5.
It's been four months now since I have my Genos, and I installed the Tyros version of the packs on Genos, but lots of voices seem to be incompatible ...  so it's four months now that I cannot use a number of my registrations.

I know the conversion document states they are scheduled for this month (April) (and that there is a clause that says "Schedule is subject to change without notice") and also April has not gone by yet .... I know ...

but still ...
I cannot imagine that this conversion would be a manual process, would it ?

So I was wondering if I am the only one out there who's patience has been put to the test here by Yamaha ?
(I guess maybe I am kind of hoping that they are already converted and that I missed them, and that someone will point me in the right direction   ;D)

Thanks

Rudy,

On 12/18/17 I received an email from Yamaha MusicSoft with the following offer.


UPGRADE YOUR TYROS PACK CONTENT TO GENOS FOR FREE

Upgrading your Tyros3, Tyros4 or Tyros5 Yamaha Premium Pack content for Genos is easy. Just login with the email you used to originally purchase the Tyros pack. Add the Genos version to your cart and the discount will be applied automatically. The free upgrade promotion even includes free upgrades from early versions of Entertainer and Euro Dance to the latest Entertainer 2016 and Euro Dance 2016 for Genos!

So you should be able to get Entertainer 2016 and Euro Dance 2016 for free. If you don’t get them for free at checkout discontinue purchase and contact MusicSoft.

Hi Badpuppa;

Thanks for that valuable information !!

I had no idea there was a free upgrade available to the 2016 versions ..

I tried to get both packs, and only the Eurodance 2016 pack was refunded. The Entertainer 2016 was not.
So I will be contacting Yamaha about this tomorrow.

Thanks again !
