If you're talking about the preset styles, you cannot change the voices assigned to the OTS.

For styles loaded from USB, you can only change the OTS before you load the style onto the DGX.

Derek thank you for your reply ...... so your saying there is no way to have some kind of FAVORITES voice buttons or bank to choose from and would have to rely on remembering the voice patch numbers and  hit the corresponding  voice bank number to play that voice while your playing a song?

I have no experience with the DGX models, but on the PSR-E models there is no way I know of to save your own OTS voices and settings for a song file or style file, nor can you edit the OTS settings for the preset songs and styles.

Hi Dnj,

On the DGX, the OTS voices are fixed. For each internal style, voice 000 is the OTS voice.

There are two drawbacks : 1) external styles don't have an OTS voice on the DGX650/660.
2) It is not possible to modify the OTS voices for the internal styles.

The workaround is to use registration memories. Once you've chosen a style either internal or external, choose the voice you want to use with it, then all the other settings (tempo, effects etc.) and save everything in a registration memory slot. When you want to use these settings, simply recall that registration.

Since there is no way to label these registrations in the keyboard itself, it is best to write down the bank number and the slot number as well as the name of the song for which the settings are made.

Regards,

Vinciane................Ok Now I am understanding what  the OTS feature is all about.....thought I was going nuts as i have been playing Yamaha arrangers for so many years....now I see the drawbacks and workarounds needed using the REG setups which are always useful..

Thanx again

Yes, the OTS feature is much more useful on the PSR upward models, because you can have 4 settings saved along with the style, and can save a copy of the style with your own settings.

It's a kind of simplified registration for voices only, that's carried around with the style.
