"Legacy" voices
« on: June 02, 2018, 02:39:08 PM »
Hi -  Have a new PSR-S975, really enjoying it after using a much more basic arranger keyboard for a while now.  One little question, in the Data List of the users' manual, are listed  "Legacy" voices.  Can anybody tell me what those are ?  Have looked online but haven't found an explanation .

Hi my friend and wellcome to the forum,
pick any voice,
press up,
navigate to the voices folders,
you will find 3 folders with voices in Page 2:
Legacy,GM2,GM & XG

They don't have their own button to access them but they are really cool

You wellcome worldofmelody :)
I really like the strings they have in these extra folders.

You can download the style you listened from here if you want to play the song by the way.

Legacy voices are those that were on earlier keyboards and are no longer on the new ones. If you think one of your favorite voices has gone from your new keyboard you will find it in the Legacy folder.

Thanks, Eileen.  What confused me was that some of the legacy voices have the same names (e.g. Octave Piano 1, Harpsichord, Ambient Piano) but now when I look at them again, they have different  "voice types" so are indeed different voices.  Thanks again !

While they have the same name, they used different effects to produce the voices. The best legacy voice, IMO, is the growl sax, which I found far more authentic sounding then the newer ones.

Good luck,

Hi Panos -  This is a question just for you ....  I posted above and you kindly answered last night and at the bottom of your text was a link to your Soundcloud music.  I listened to some of of your pieces, enjoyed them, and told you that when I answered you back.  THEN . when I wake up this morning, there is a Soundcloud notification saying that you have listened to MY Soundcloud posts !  But I hadn't told you my link or even the fact that I had posted some stuff on Soundcloud.  So I'm confused -- how did you do that ??

I failed to be a musician so I work for the MI6 and I like to play James Bond themes on my free time ;D  ;D

Here is how is done:
On soundcloud go to the stats of your profile.
In the page with the statistics it can show you the top listeners of your uploads for the period you will ask for, even if you don't have a pro plan there.

If you make a new cover you can also post the link to the song section of this forum for people to listen to it.
I like to get ideas of what people like in music how the play it, what styles and voices they are using and most of all, music is nice to listen to. :)

Thanks for your reply, panos ! You've taught me a new trick.  And here I thought I knew everything !  Little joke there, the truth is that there's a hell of a lot I don't know . but I'm learning.
