Factory Expansion
« on: June 07, 2020, 12:40:11 PM »
Ok .....so i might be coming up with 'old news' here and maybe some are aware of this already ...but if not ... have a go...
there are 4 expansion packs pre.loaded and free in the 700 and 900

Just messing on 'Latin America' factory expansion ( one the four ) and came across these voices in it  - 'Gritos 1 & 2'  If you have not had a play around with these, then have a go ...

Create a market place, or busy Spanish bar room... really good ....well i think so ..also, note the Spanish counting 1-8 at the low end of the board!! great

I dont tend to mess around much with expansion, being a lazy 'plug and play' performer....but it really is amazing what is available.
Just seems odd to me that they don't simply bang ALL this expansion stuff in as 'preset' , then I suppose they want to 'tempt' us with these 'tasters' to perhaps buy particular 'add ons' later as after sales is, I imagine a lucrative market.

Ohh... my bad. I thought, this about pre-installed content in general.

Hi Keith,

this is because the memory space for Preset Voice wave data is limited. On SX900, for example, the so called NAND Flash memory for Preset Voice wave data is 1GB, and this memory area is almost completely occupied by the Preset data.

The four pre-installed free Packs are located in the Expansion memory (1GB on SX900).

In my opinion, this is a good idea from Yamaha, because this is how the Expansion memory is used in the first place and the user can try this free content directly.

As soon as other Expansion Packs are installed, the pre-installed packs are automatically deleted and the full Expansion memory is available. If you want to keep one or more Packs, this is also no problem, because the pre-installed packs can be downloaded free of charge from the Yamaha website (in cpf format). So you can import them into the YEM if required and combine them with any other packs. :)

P.S.
When downloading the pre-installed packs in cpf format, make sure that the "correct" version is downloaded (for SX900 or for SX700).


Best regards,
Chris

Thanks Chris...I had no idea how it all worked.
I have owned countless Yamahas and never used expansion in a big way, I do remember trying it on a 670.

I just thought these pre-loaded voices were inventive, so it might be something i will look at in more detail now. Thanks very much for your reply it was very useful.

Best regards - Keith

No Using styles will not delete anything just load and play from the USB stick.
