DGX-230/YPG-235 and PSR EW410
« on: June 13, 2019, 10:58:59 PM »
I think I might go with PSR EW410 because it's cheaper and 76 keys. I think it might fit in my budget. I'm comparing the YPG-235 and the PSR EW410, not by which is better. I'm looking for something that is like in between and I think these 2 are close together with their sounds. However, looking at the Data list seems like they have the same sounds, not a big deal to me, usually, I go 2 keyboards for different sounds.

I found styles from ebay which I'm thinking to buy for these 2. But he has one for DGX-230 which I only have the YPG-235, learned they are the same but different colors. and another one for EW410. My question though, the styles that they worked on, are they the same voices and could it be possible to work on both of them? or is it best to buy 2 styles for specific Keyboard? I found more from musicstyles.biz.

Here are the links

This is for DGX Models

I don't know if I purchase one for my keyboard and after I get the EW410 might add it to that Keyboard as well. What do yall think?

I think that styles you buy for either the DGX-230, YPG-235, PSR-E463, or PSR-EW410 should work on the other models, but you might need to use a program like MixMaster to edit the voice selections.

I can't speak about other style shops, but at Yamaha MusicSoft you might need to try selecting for a different yet similar model, because there can be wildly different results for models that should be able to play the same styles.

For example, the PSR-E403 and YPT-400 are the same keyboard; they just have different names for export purposes. The same is true with the DGX-230 and YPG-235. Yet if you search for styles that are available for a specific model, you might get more results for one model than for another, even though they're identical except for their names. Or you might get more results for an older model than for a newer model, even though the newer model has all of the voices that the older model does plus some additional ones, so you'd expect the newer model to have more results than the older model-- all of the same styles as for the older model, plus additional ones that use voices which are on the newer model but not on the older model.

I'm not sure why this is the case. Perhaps when the newer model was introduced, the store didn't copy the database entries (i.e., list of "compatible" styles) from the previous model(s) to the new model? Or perhaps some of the older style files weren't listed for the newer model because they had gotten added to the built-in styles of the newer model and therefore you don't need to buy it as an external style file? (Although, even if that were the case, it might still be nice to buy it as external file so you can tweak it in an external program MixMaster, given that the "entry-level" models don't have a way to export their internal styles the way the higher-end models do.)
