Can I play styles from PSR-730 on my Genos?
« on: May 18, 2020, 01:58:14 AM »
Hi,
i started with a PSR 730 20 years ago, and I'd like to use some of those old styles on my Genos. I have the style files from Yamaha along with some updated ones I found here on this site. After downloading then I transferred them using a USB stick to my Ge nos. So far so good. I saved the files to the registrations (transferred to the Genos from my PSR S970) and they worked fine. I saved everything.

But, when I reopened a file, the style hadn't been saved!  I checked a few others. Same result. I tried saving again. The registrations seemed just fine. Everything worked fine. But after switching to a different registration and coming back, it wasn't saved. It's as if I missed verifying the save but I've done other registrations dozens of times with no problem.  I even went back to the manual to be sure Iíd done things right.

Now Iím wondering:  do files from the old relic keyboard need to be converted in order to work?  If so, can you recommend the easiest way to do so? 

Other - maybe important information:  I recently moved and much of my gear wasnít used for a few months. Yesterday I downloaded and installed the most recent firmware update (I was at 1.3  :-\) I also did a factory reset on the Genos because I had a problem with notes ďstickingĒ every once in a while.

Besides this issue, the Genos seems to be working fine.

Thanks very much.

All styles load on new keyboards, including Genos, so thatís not your problem.

Your problem is your registrations canít find the style, so they do nothing (ie, leave the current loaded style as is).

You need to re-memorize your registrations with the new location of your styles, or move your styles to where your registrations are expecting to find them.

Fred,
Thank you for your reply.  It took me a while to realize that I was forgetting to touch the Memory button during the save process. 
Unfortunately when youíve been away from something like one of these keyboards for a while, itís easy to forget a step.
