PSR-SX900 Playlist vs. PSR-S900 Music Finder
« on: May 22, 2020, 08:37:39 AM »
Hi everyone

Please can you help me? In 2007 I purchased a brand new PSR-S900 which I have kept and used to
this day.

I am going to be upgrading to a new PSR-SX900 in September this year.

The current PSR-S900 that I own has Music Finder. You press “Music Finder” and using the data wheel
are able to configure the keyboard to play a variety of different songs.  I upgraded mine with a Music Finder file that was programmed with the proper song titles as apposed to the vague descriptions installed in the instrument due to “copyright issues “.

My question therefore is:  Is the Playlist on the PSR-SX900 populated in a similar way? Does the Playlist show proper song titles out of the box, or is there an updated one I am able to load into the instrument if necessary?

Thank you for your help.

Kind regards


Adam

The play lists do contain the proper titles to songs but are a little different to Music finder as they also contain registration banks and allow you to save all the things you do with registrations. A much better system all round.
If you go onto the SX900 Yamaha download site you will be able to download extra playlists. These must be saved to a USB stick and used from there.
  If you save your Music Finder file you are using on your present keyboard you will be able to convert this on the SX to work but as there are probably a lot more new styles you may find some files will not work as they should.

The ‘MusicFinder’ on the previous PSRs was just great, if it was fully loaded you had about 2,000 song to style records and you could enter your own, the new playlist on the SX is just not working for me.

I don’t understand why YAMAHA dropped this feature, it’s an arranger keyboard using styles, we need as much information as to what styles work with what songs or tempos as what we can get in the initial stages of assembling a song, it probably will be back in some way in the next model.

Hi Pino,
  Each of the nine playlists for the SX have song titles and load with one registration setting which you can add to and resave.You can also load in MF files and the keyboard converts them to a playlist. It is also very easy to make your own playlists by adding your favorite registrations with all there effects such as Transpose and Pedal settings plus multi Pads of your choice.
  It is much more versatile than Music Finder and is what people have been asking for for a long time.
You just need to get used to it.
