Backup expansion packs from keyboard
« on: July 10, 2019, 12:36:23 AM »
Hello, i am planning on upgrading my S770 to the S775, the problem is, i don't have a backup of my expansion packs on any of my flash drives or my PC.
Is there any possible way to back them up from the keyboard?
Thanks
Yosef

No... If you bought them... the seller should have provided you with both .ppf and .ppi files. So you should have a backup already. With the .ppf file you can import into the YEM software and create a Installation file (.ppi)

But maybe you bought the keyboard with the packs already installed and the seller didn't give the .ppi and .ppf files.

Even if you did have a backup, an installation pack created for an S770 is not guaranteed to load on an S775.

If you have any purchased content in there, it would certainly not work because it's tied to the serial number of the instrument that you selected in YEM when exporting the pack.

PSR packs do not come copy protected like the TOTL models. If he installs his target keyboard in YEM as an S775 the pack can be installed.

? Not sure that's true. I bought a couple of packs for the S770 which created .cpi install files, and checked credentials back to Musicsoft. Can't remember offhand which ones, possibly MidiPirates.

Derek, yes you can buy copy protected packs for the PSR series, but Easy Sounds sells packs that are not protected. People here have loaded PSR packs into their T5 and Genos.

I've experimented with this a little.  My brother has a PSR S970. He sent me his .n27 file. I created a .cpi file for his keyboard, I could not load it into my S970.

Yes - I'm one of them! That's how I found it out. I tried to load the .cpi that I'd previously stored on USB into my T5, but it did not load. I re-exported the pack from YEM using the T5' s instrument file, which produced a new .cpi that did load on the T5.

I believe you can load .ppi files into the T5 as well.
