To be honest     Yamaha have not officially announced the new website nor freebies   (at least here in the UK)  I have only learnt about this from here and other interested sites  So we cannot complain about stuff that has been leaked about
Yamaha are certainly not an IT company like Apple who have made bigger cock ups than this

Yamaha have not officially announced the new website nor freebies [...] So we cannot complain about stuff that has been leaked about

In this world of constantly evolving websites announcing even relaunches are out of fashion. There is nothing that has "leaked". Yamaha did deploy the website to the public. The well-known and well-established Yamaha webshop URL does redirect you automatically to the new site. If it is not intended to be used it shouldn't go public. It is good SW developing practice to do sufficient testing on a staging server before going live. It is true that Yamaha is not an IT company. That's why there are countless first class IT consultants/service providers in the market that could provide a professional product. This is just YAYEF (yet another Yamaha epic fail) we've seen others over the years.

[off- or maybe not so off-topic: about nine months ago the German Yamaha user forum (that existed some 20 years) was shut down without warning because of "technical difficulties". User's were informed that Yamaha is working hard to relaunch the forum. Nine months later, after "very intensive investigations" Yamaha claimed it is impossible to operate the user forum due to privacy protection requirements.]

Premium packs - downloaded but get sme files : what to do next
« Reply #253 on: July 05, 2020, 05:55:00 PM »
Greetings:

I managed, after many tried, to download some of the free Premium packs.  When unzipped, they gave .sme files which are not readable by expansion manager.  Any advice on how to proceed?  I looked at Google for programs for decrypting sme files but they did not work.

Thanks

Well,  I would like to thank Teknoss, for the first post on this thread . . . . for providing the info and link in advance . . . .

I also would like to thank Yamaha for this unexpected gift.   I have managed to download 6 new packs that are now into my Genos Expansion area. . . . this should increase the keyboard re-sale value . . .  yes, i had to wait a bit. . . . .  with some frustration along the way . . . . . 

Yes, the yamaha site was frustrating but i think part of the problem was that we were all trying to 'buy' stuff at same time. The web site is not prepared for a buying rush like this, I can understand it because normally they probably sell one or two a day if that much.

Then the downloading was also frustrating with the error messages, etc. same issue. . . an unexpected number of people downloading at same time . . . . . but just keep trying, it is free . . . 

Of course the Yamaha Expansion Manager is not a walk in the park. . . but again it is free and once you kind of understand it,  it works fine.  (not sure that i completely understand it, but it worked for my purposes).

In the end, the way I look at it . . . . it was free . . . . for me well worth the work i had to do.  I put in maybe 5-8 hours here and there for almost one thousand US dollars in value .. . . . . not bad.

This is only my opinion/comments and do not in any way intent to discount any comments to the contrary. 

Greetings Everyone. 

Thanks

thanks a lot for your response . . . . i looked at Ugawoga's post like you suggested . . . i found this response from him (see below).  Not sure if this is the comment you are referring to but it does not answer my question.  He is referring to T5 and T4, i do have a Genos.

Anyway, thanks

p.s. i think this thread is getting too long to find anything easily . . . i guess i can start a new post with my question(s).   Thanks again . . . .

Hi
This is reply from Yamaha about SME and Genos -- "What about the Genos???
Hi John,

Thanks for getting back to me.    For the Tyros 5, they are irrelevant, and can be deleted if you so wish.   
If you also own a Tyros 4, you will need to load the license key into it prior to loading the sme files.

I hope this helps, but if you have any further questions, please let me know.

Kindest Regards,
Donald

Ps How do you load the licence key??

Yes, I did notice that too. As you, I have Genos, and even when I had T4 I never did see any .sme files when download from the shop.
I can see in some of the Genos files downloaded that the .sme filetype is there too.
I think there is a mistake done by Yamaha, and that it will be corrected when they discover it. 🤔

What the Yamaha guy said is what you read.
The licence Key is for the Genos as that is what i asked about and what to do with the key ,  but got that sketchy email back.
I do think someone has made a BOO BOO!!
If you load things like that in ,the firmware might go BANG!! ::)Lol
Anyway life goes on

Nobody knows what to do with the SME files. It's almost certainly a mistake in the site and we should be getting CPF files.

It's a bit sad, though, that there's not even a message on the site to say that there's a problem with the downloads. It would be better to remove them until they are fixed.

All datafiles holds information, and if look to .sme, some are as huge as the addonpacks, and the only file except the txt file with the key insie the download.
It may be so it's much talked about, and that's perfectly legal.
My theory is that Yamaha has messed it up, and that it is a encrypted filetype Yamaha use internal before ditribute as the usual formats.

I expect the SMEKEY is needed to create the 'personal datablock' that has to be inserted in the header.

That make sence. When buy a pack at store, it will be loaded with our instrument ID, and most likely it's automaticly generated in 'persobnal' pack before we can download.
It's probably the header missing and difference between .sme and .cpf?

Get a nice answer from Yamaha :

We've noticed that some of the packs were downloading in the SME format and our team is working to resolve this.  You should be receiving CPF files when downloading.  Please try your download again and if you continue to see the SME file, let us know which pack you are having trouble with.

We apologize that your orders aren't showing on the account yet.  Please be patient while we work on importing all of your previous orders.  We're hoping to have the orders available in the next couple weeks. 

Our understanding is that the YEM software will still continue to be used for expansion pack installations and that expansion packs are still being developed.

It's the greed factor for something FREE. Some people will grab ANYTHING that is for FREE even if they never use it! It's also compulsive addictive behavior like looking at your cell phone every five minutes.

Thank you Bachus was the numeric code of the country ... and I completed the registration.
I managed to enter (on the American site) and I am downloading. If I can I will make the other packages available at this point but it is very slow...
I files are in ppf, ppi, cpf (in .sme the Genos Pack) and are for various keyboards (A2000, A3000, S670, S770, S970 and so on )  in short, a collection.
is it right is not right for who bought this ..? ... why?
I had to redo the registration on the site maybe Yamaha needed to encourage this.

I believe that Yamaha  needed test the site and what better than free packages. This reminded me of when albums and stickers gratis, were given in front of the school in Italy. There were mothers of  family who were fighting for them .. lol (far 1975 45 years ago ... nothing changed lol ...)

I think the Yamaha company in the USA had the same problem. And seeing the situation there they may still have. So get things ready in the next week??

Guys, there is no need to download SA2 voices, because they already are into the free Superior Pack on the official Genos page.
So SA2 panflute, SA2 female vocals, SA2 trombone and Alpen pack are unuseful for Genos users on Yamahamusicsoft. Also the SA2 saxophones are already on Genos as native voices.

A little stir on the web does help to keep them motivated..
If noboddy complained.. they would probably just leave it at this..

But then, now we have the answer : two weeks..
I dont think continous complaining helps much..

So its best to wait for 2 more weeks and see how it improves
And if the problems continue..  become vocal again..


But i agree, for now, it does not help..
See you all in 2 weeks, either as a happy camper or a grumpy 😡 old man..
The choice is up to Yamaha..

What the hell is this back and forth all about? Doesn't anyone play their keyboards anymore. Is this free or when is it free. I have had my Genos for 2 years, and their is so much that I haven't even discovered yet. I also love new styles and sounds...but I think this obsession which is my own opinion, is not healthy 
for most keyboard players. If you are waiting for sound improvements, just think after this Yamaha expansion problem is solved, their will be another down the road. I think technology has made us all very anxious to the point , that we cannot focus on the blessings that we have in front of us in our keyboards. But if this is what keyboard playing is all about for you, go for it. You will always be expecting better, and better, and missing what you already have.

Hi Mike

If you have Sample robot and computer with vst's sounds, there are no problems for the Genos as Sky is the limit with sf2 files.
One outlay of £200 and the rest is history. Sounds will come out of anything.

Don't worry "guys", the wait is over before of two week...
Extra packs have been corrected now. Compressed files (.zip) shared in the link.
I left the files unpacked for SX 700/900 to allow a quick download to who interested only those (in reality nothing is specific for the SX keyboard, the packages are of the various S series) ... Good music at all. Thanks Yamaha I have the packages that I wanted and that I was about to buy (Iberia and Italy) and others that I had in yep format and therefore lacking specific of voices and drumkits. Now no pack give me error in loading.

I have to agree with Mike and I am surprised this thread is still going. Please do spend time exploring what you already have under your finger tips and enjoy just playing. In these hard times we need to get away from stress and what does it better than just sitting and playing the lovely instruments you have already.
I do not think people are interested in sample robot as it has nothing to do with the present subject of Free Packs.

Hi Eilieen and Mike2
So we have to tell Yamaha not to produce expansion packs anymore, much less pay homage to its customers for free ... lol.
Sorry but I don't see where the problem is, nobody is stealing anything. If instead of having them for free you buy them, is this rhetoric still valid? Some people will need these packages to spend hours of light-heartedness and fun, no more or less like having 50000 styles on a USB stick ... will we play them all? Probably not, but all are owners of their own ... USB.  lol
good music to everybody

If you're not interested in this thread then stop reading it - leave the rest of us to our complaining :)

Don't worry "guys", the wait is over before of two week...
Extra packs have been corrected now. Compressed files (.zip) shared in the link.
I left the files unpacked for SX 700/900 to allow a quick download to who interested only those (in reality nothing is specific for the SX keyboard, the packages are of the various S series) ... Good music at all. Thanks Yamaha I have the packages that I wanted and that I was about to buy (Iberia and Italy) and others that I had in yep format and therefore lacking specific of voices and drumkits. Now no pack give me error in loading.

I think the point we were making is that many people are getting over heated about not being able to get these packs right now. No where is anyone telling Yamaha not to produce packs. We are just saying relax and wait a couple of weeks until all is working right. In the mean time have some fun with your keyboards.
