Hi Pitio, if you mean styles with measures of 3/4. there are several in the Ballroom folder, and others in the World folder. I hope this helps. Hans

Hi hans 1966!
On my old instrument, the Music Database made it easy to search for 3/4, 6/8, etc. beats.
this is not possible on the SX900. I want to see these at once, not search in separate groups.

I always go through the styles when I get a new keyboard and select my favorite styles that I know I will use into a folder which I call My styles. On the new keyboards you can save them as favorites if you prefer.

I thought of an idea for the next firmware update if its capable of doing this
My idea was to take care of 2 issues
Is to be able to mirror and control the touch screen from an iPad through bluetooth or evan wired

A. That would take away the need for an external screen output
B. That would make switching pages and using the screen a lot faster and accurate

Does this idea make sense?

Yes... i might be wrong, but I do seem to remember with 'Music Finder' you could search and list by time signature to sort 3/4 from maybe 4/4  correct me if I am wrong - or was it just tempo?

Give me five good reasons for upgrading from a PSR 975 to a sPSR XS 900! Is it worth the extra money?? All I see here are people wishing for more, not being satisfied with the SX900!! Come on, boys and gals: Is it that bad? Make me decide

The SX 900 is a great little keyboard and is very nice just to sit down and play it. I much prefer it over my old PSR970 and it has much more punch volume wise.
  Has a 4Gb user section so room for lots of Registrations, Styles, and Midi files if you use them. I would advise you save all recorded Audio file to USB as these can be quite large. Having two USB ports is certainly useful and 1Gb of flash memory for sample packs is great.

It was the same with the Genos, Toril. Some people are never satisfied.

Hello Toryl,
  I am always satisfied with my Yamaha keyboards. I find out what is on them so I know what I am getting. It is stupid after you have bought it saying it should have this and it should have that. It is a musical keyboard and dose exactly what it is supposed to do. Really like mine just as it is.

I don't believe it a question of owners' not being satisfied at all.  One size will never fit everybody and if it was perfect Yamaha would never need to ever produce another new model or provide any software updates.

Just how someone can say they knew it was going to be 100% perfect before they bought it beggers belief.  They are fine keyboards but that does not make them perfect in every respect.  As an example, owners having to add 'Tippex' to see control knobs' placement is a clear oversight by the designers.

I do not think anyone would say they know it will be a 100% perfect. I just did research into it before I bought it so knew what I was getting. Having had Yamaha organs and keyboards over the last 30 years I know what to expect and it is always first class including the after care. I know you will never satisfy everyone but at the end of the day this is a keyboard and for many of us dose what we want.
  A really nice instrument tp play.

I believe They should focus more on their boot malfunction since many owners now getting this error. even now people starting to post it on youtube too. If the Favorite style adding occurs boot failure means, totally fail the basics logic of the boot sequence. 

There are many cases worldwide, only Yamaha does is replace the entire keyboard. No solution. some people have re-sale the keyboard with a big loss. They should include this on their next Frameware update 1.05 I suggest.

The coming November many of 1-year warranty will be finished. After that, if this happens, they will take nearly half of the keyboard price for the motherboard replacement.

I think there is some noise between the various comments about what can be improved on the SX900 / SX700.
I think this post is mainly about what in a possible Firmware update still needs to be adjusted by Yamaha to ensure that the operating system is a technically 100% running machine. That's for what consumers are paying for and may expect due to Yamaha's marketing brochures.
In this case it is good to mention and share this in this forum, but do also mail your concerns to the Yamaha Company in your region or your dealer. That's the only effective way and after the warranty period, you can always try to hold Yamaha to account that you have already indicated it in time.

In my humble opinion, other comments have more to do about what could be improved on the successor to the SX series. Therefore, it might be more effective for someone to create a post in a f.e. 'SX900 Successors Whish List'  under the heading 'The Next Yamaha Keyboard'
Just my 2 cents ...

I know you hear me say this a lot but it is true that I have never had a problem with my SX900 and I had one of the first ones out. I do however make sure I switch it off correctly by setting it back to home page and holding down the off switch until I hear the little click. This we also do on Genos. It stops any problems which can occur with things locking up.

Eileen, I never thought it was important to go to the home screen before powering off. Thanks for the tip!

Yes I always power off correctly, but it i often think how 'auto power off' works ?? as it simply cuts out and switches off with a click. i do wonder if this could cause issues....maybe not.

Other than my issue which was sorted with a replacement of my SX ....I have NEVER had issues with any Yamaha arranger and have owned lots of different models over the years as well as playing on and owning many other makes.

I do think Yamaha are very good...Yes, it would be nice to have a hybrid of Yamaha ,Korg, Roland, technics and maybe Keytron.  In my opinion....just taking the best features of each, but that just aint gonna happen ..... carry on dreaming .....lol

I really think they got it right this time with the SX range ....will be interesting to see what, if anything they come up with in this line next...

the TEMPO
its only on the main page above the STYLE
which means i have to click on the tempo button when im in the mixer or channel or voice or any other page
its very different than KORG
it should be present all the time on the screen

You can dedicate one of the assignable buttons to access+/- Tempo.
