Hello Melodies,

The only solution which occurs me would be to copy/to stick your MP3 one after the other to a track(runway) of Audacity with a small space then to select all of the track(runway) containing the MP3 before making "Export the audio..." with Audacity to realize a great MP3 containing your various MP3.

Then the big obtained file MP3 will be put on an USB key and the recordings can be read one after the other by the recorder of your keyboard.

Not better

Best Regards

Hi

You can do this in Genos .. is there no Song Player in Tyros-5?
I had one but never used it!

If you mean that you want to play back audio songs one after another, then you can do this using the Tyros audio player's 'Playlist' function. 

Note that this is not the same function as the 'Playlist' on Genos which is basically a list of Registrations -  Yamaha are masters of confusing people with the nomenclature that they use!

Yamaha say about 'Playlist' on Tyros :  "The Playlist is a convenient feature within the Audio Recorder/Player that lets you collect and organize audio files for automatic playback in “jukebox” fashion. The Playlist mode can be active in the background (for example, when the Main display is selected), letting you play the listed files whenever you wish during your performance".

Setting up and using a 'Playlist' is described in the 'Tyros5 Reference Manual' (not the Owner's manual!) which you can download free from Yamaha if you haven't already done so.

The relevant information is in the section 'Playlist Mode' starting on page 88.   It includes a 'Repeat' setting which allows you to play the whole list once, the whole list repeatedly or even just one song over and over.


Regards

Ah .. thats good to know. I would have thought it would have been there.
That will work for Melodies.
Should have delved into my T5 reference manual.!

Ian already provided a solution for T5.  So the question has been answered.

As an alternative, I do that frequently at events -play mp3's continuously - but not out of the keyboard.  I connect my iPod directly to my Bose L1 (or if you have a similar PA system).

Thanks
