As you have probably noticed, the Tyros 5 and Genos do not allow to have, in a variation, signature measures different from the original signature of the style. Even even, one can not give different rhythmic signatures to each variation. And sometimes we have, in a 4/4 piece, a 2/4 or 3/4 measure that arrives and that shifts the times of the variation. So, to answer the question of the beginning, here is a very small example under This form of a variation of 4 measures is written as follows: 1 measure at 4/4, 1 measure at 2/4, 1 measure at 4/4 and 1 measure at 3/4. On the variation, ALL the measures are at 4/4, the cymbal marking the 1st beat of each of them, the notes played are black (easier to find the times), but the tempo list is decomposed as follows:

- measure 1 = 100

- measure 2 = 200

- measure 3 = 100

- measure 4 = 133

The trick, in fact for the 2 accidental measures is, for the 2/4, to double the events (here the black becomes white) and to double the Tempo, and for the 3/4, to duplicate the events by quantizing them in ternary (here, to have 3 black, it is necessary to write a triplet of white) and by adding a value equal to 1/3 of the tempo to this one, in this case, 33 points (roughly, 100/3)

Of course, this gymnastics can only be done using a DAW, here it is Cubase Element, whose Tempo list is recognized by the Tyros or Genos. And, in the variations, this is perfectly the case, as in the sequencer, by the way.

So, since a style is only a midi file at the base, just copy the style on a USB key, change the extension ".sty" to ".mid", load it in the DAW (I recommend Cubase), make changes to tempo and, possibly, events as well as quantization and save everything. Once done, we put the extension ".sty" and you're done.

If only for the possibilities of tempo, it allows the slow ones in a variation and to take again the initial tempo on unbreak or on the following variation. Some songs are better at being less linear and it really personalizes the style. And it's applicable to all styles.

Here is a little tutorial that can serve those who want to go a little further and stand out a little.

Good evening and have fun.
