Simple 16 track recording
« on: February 09, 2019, 07:28:53 PM »
Hello, please help?

I am trying to record a song, from scratch; say, track 1 is piano, track 2 is bass, track 3 is guitar etc. Iíd like to achieve recording similar to the songs on my youtube page, I mean Iíd like to record all instruments myself; without using any styles. Just record each instrument, record each instrument one by one. But when I click multi recording; I see the 16 channels but canít select various sounds or I canít select the channel I want to record. Basically, I am at a complete loss.

Below is my version of Take Five recorded over 10 years ago. I; like to be able to records what I want, not using any ready styles or anything, all from scratch?

When you have the MIDI Multi Recording display open, just touch the instrument icon of the channel that you want to record.

This will open a window which allows you to select the keyboard part (R1 for example) that will be used for the recording. Touch the part that you want to use in the list, and touch 'OK' to actually select it.  The channel number icon will change from green to red indicating that it is armed for recording.

You can arm more than one channel for recording at the same time, but if you do this, you will only be able use each specific part in one of the armed channels.

There is information about MIDI Multi Recording in the section "Recording Each Channel Individually (Realtime Recording)" starting on page 69 of the 'Genos Reference Manual'.   This is different to the 'Genos Owner's Manual' and is not supplied with the keyboard.  However you can download a PDF copy from the Yamaha Downloads web site.  Here is a link to the Genos assets page containing the manual on the UK site which should work for you even if you are not in the UK, or you can find the page on your local Yamaha site...
