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.

Hi Eileen
Since i got wind of Sample Robot i looked at it and pondered for a while and researched.
It is a no brainer for £220.
If you make about three of your own packs ,You have paid for the program. NO BRAINER!!! ::) :P
I have a raft of vst and it copies them perfectly to Sf2  and no messing in Yem . Just a few ups and downs to your liking with the sliders.
With the help of Sokratis and Robinez it is a breeze.
Yamaha packs will be a thing of the past for most of them are just standard sounds.

All the Best
John :)

Here is my challenge - play a nice middle of the road song - the sort posted over and over by arranger players -  using the panel voices, stock styles as best you can play it. Then use a vst, expanded pack whatever voices styles you like and play it again. Then spend a week balancing, adding effects etc etc. Now,...... does it really sound that much better??

Hi PdeMats, this pack is pre-installed (along with 3 other packs) on sx900, it is protected (so it is a .cpf file).
it can be downloaded from the Yamaha website, but you will not be able to install it if you do not own the SX 700/900 ...
But if you owned the"SX700/900" you would already have it

Please keep in mind . . .

1. Some people are not necessarily downloading the packs to play them all now . . . . but . . . this is also, to enhance the future re-sale value of their keyboard(s).

2. Due to confinment, some people have more than usual free time . . . (confinment seems to be over in many parts in Europe but still going-on in many other places).

I have learned a long time ago that people will do whatever they feel like doing . . . if they want to play then great if they want to try download great too . . .  that is fine with me.

I am grateful to Yamaha for the free packs and for this thread, everyone's advise and comments. . . .  it really helped me.   

Thanks

If you want to limit it to the example you give... the answer is MAYBE. It really depends on the genre of music... I rarely use "stock styles".  For me sounds are everything so the answer is a big YES! But... it doesn't take a week to remix the style either.

Remember there are members from around the world who don't play stock styles either, and the Panel Voices are inadequate for Baltic, Mid-Eastern or Asian music. It's just not possible to put every kind of ethnic instrument and style in the keyboard.  That's why Yamaha went the expansion route.

Fair point Joe, I suppose other genres of music warrant a wider sometimes more technical, approach. But close to 100% of  music I hear posted is very straightforward western style pop and standards.

Hi Aquilauno, thanks for your answer and explanation, I don't have PSR SX, I have the Genos, but like you, we are from latin countries (I am from Portugal) and we know what people want to listen to when we go out to play, so the more latin packs the better ;-) but I see that pack is not for Genos, it's a shame, there are categories like Pop Dance Entertainer, just to name a few, that have 5 pages of styles so 5x10 about 50styles each in Genos, the Latin is only 3 pages about 30styles and a lot of them are Slow Bossa Bossa nova PopBossa Jazz bossa, etc... there's so much more about latin music than the Brazilian bossa!
I just want to add that regarding the topic ( Starting June 30, Yamaha Premium packs, expansions will be free ) what Eileen want us to talk about? When he wrote regarding the *.sme files stop talking about it it has been discussed to death... yes, it was a polite manner to say 'shut up you all'... what should we discuss then, the pandemic outside that causes we musicians to be out of work at this moment, and so without money?!?... Yamaha department of arrangers screw up things, today is 9th July and I was not able to download anything from the site, now i have some packs thanks to Aquilano, but came to here in search of answers for my problems with the packs and everyone was on topic, discussing the issues of those free packs. Please don't take me wrong, I just do not like when someone tells me to 'shut up' when I am not saying foolish things...
About SampleRobot, someone mentioned it, I went to make a search and there's a free version for Montage owners, how come Yamaha??? I paid more than 4000€ for the Genos, the Montage it's cheaper and I don't have access to the program?
I didn't sold the Genos after a couple of months because I was going to loose a big amount of money, but I am glad I kept my old Ketron SD1 Plus bought in 2004, it's simple to use and sounds damn good, better than the Genos. I will never buy from Yamaha again, these 2 years have been disappointing and more and more frustrating... what a disrespectful company.
(sorry to go off topic)
Please be safe and take care, outside there's the IIIrd World War

I have and never would tell anyone to shut up. We have all been told the site is not running properly and will be up and running in a couple of weeks time so all I wanted to say was why do people keep trying to get these packs until everything is running as it should. The reward will come with a little patience and I am sure there are better things to discus like any hints and tips Members may have found and want to pass on.
 Why should you think Yamaha are disrespectful. I have always found them very helpful and there service is first class. Genos is a fantastic keyboard.

At least for me, the page seems to be working better now.
Before I got stucked at the "update information" page and was told "more information is required".

Now I was able to get through this and was able to download some of the free packs. The bigger ones like Euro Dance and Entertainer, failed after a while of downloading retries, but I was able to download some smaller packs like the SA2 Pan Flutes. I haven't installed the file yet, but the file name is SA2 PanFlutes_Genos.cpf so I guess it will be ok.

Hi jugge, remember that the Trombone, Pan Flute, Female Vocal and Alpen packs were provided free last year as part of the "Genos Superior Pack" - so if you installed that, you already have them.

PS : and curse, I bought plane tickets to Lisbon  for the next month of August (tickets already purchased a week before drama the "Covid 19". My wife does not want to leave by plane anymore, this is money thrown away ... lol).

Maybe its not about sounding better, but about the creative proces?  Or just about sounding different?

Everyone is different and does things the wya he does for his own reasons?

So even when i see no use for something, it can make another man entirely happy.

We are often much to fast to give our opinions based on our own perception instead of trying to figure out why other people make a certain choice. 



If someone wants to tweak his sounds for ours on hours, and enjoys that, who are we to say he is wrong?



And if people want to bicker about the yamaha musicsoft still not doing what they promissed, then why not just let them. It might be their way to handle the emotions they have concerning this topic..



In general things start going down hill, when we start telling others what to do and what not to do..

True Bachus. But about 80% of the people who buy an arranger see it as a musical instrument and just want to learn to play it. I think that around 20% or less are interested in the arranger as a piece of advanced technology, and want to explore and extend all the features. What people like Eileen are reacting to is that the 20% seem to dominate the forum with constant complaints about what they need but dont have, what Yamaha do wrong, and why it should be better, and it sometimes gets a bit old.

Hi all,

it seems, that Yamaha has fixed the download page. Currently, I could download the following packs for Genos:

* Celtic (already worked last week)
* Colors of Iberia V2 for Genos (already worked last week)
* Choirs & Vocals (now as CPF)
* Euro & US Urgan (now as CPF)
* SA2 Trombones (now as CPF)
* SA2 Pan Flutes (now as CPF)
* Balkan & Turkey (now as CPF)
* Best of Europe (now as CPF)
* Ballroom Premium Styls (now as CPF)

These CPF files are not bound to a single account. They are free, only restricted to use with Genos.

I had purchased the pack Best of Europe before, that was bound to my account, showing a golden lock in YEM.
Now I have got the pack Best of Europe, that is not bound to any account, showing a silver lock in YEM.


On the other side: Last week I downloaded Euro Dance VSE for PSR. It was in format PPF, thus could be loaded to Genos.
Now Euro Dance VSE for PSR comes as a CPF (silver lock), that is restricted to PSR keyboards and does not load to Genos.

* Church & Christmas
* Colors of Romania
* Euro Organ Artist
* Fiesta Caliente
* Greetings from Italy
* South East Europe

And the pack Alpen Genos that was available last week as SME, now disappeared from the shop.

And there have been other packs before, like Entertainer or Euro Dance.

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.

Well I live in the UK and I can't even fill in the contact form on the website to get in touch with them. Clearly it's only designed for US customers as it won't accept my phone number, post code (ZIP code) or select UK... but where is the UK equivalent of this store?   I am puzzled.
Like yourselves I've tried to download my purchases and almost 99% of the time they fail with 'the network connection was lost'. In the rare occasions I did manage to download them, they are files which are unrecognisable by either Yamaha Expansion Manager or the Genos.
I'm happy to wait until it gets resolved and fixed, however I am puzzled as to why a major company like Yamaha haven't even put a message on the site to say they are aware of the problems.

I doubt that there are step by step instructions . . . . a lot of it is trial and error . . . . but basically . ..  this is an outline . . . .

Go to the very first post of this thread.   You will find a link to the Yamaha music site. 

1. Access the link
2. If you do not have one already, sign up to create an account
3. Look for the items you want
4. "purchase" and once in your shopping cart . . . . . then download

When creating the account, you can provide the keyboard model that you own . . . . the system will tell you if the selected packages are compatible with your keyboard.

I am sure, that others will also contribute if this basic instructions are not sufficiently clear or missing something.

So, that is the first part . . . . the second part will require additional instructions . . .

My suggestion is for now to do the first part . . .. and then if you do not have it already ask for instructions on the second part . . . . and so on . . . . .

Hopefully someone has better step by step instructions but you can start with this for now.

Hope it helps.

Thanks

No need to use YEM for Tyros4. You have to load the new packs using Voice Creator function onboard.

As Francesco pointed out you cannot use YEM with a Tyros4. The SA2 Trombone pack contains three cpf files for Genos, T5 and T5_76. There is no data that you can upload using Voice Creator. Until now T4 users are left in the dust. You will have to wait and see if Yamaha finds a way to deliver those packs to T4 users.

Its not about majorrity or minority..
 Thats an asumption you make based on what?

Its about people being different..
And there is only on way that different people can live together.
Thats when they
a) accept others for what they are
B) take others into consideration..

But, there is one thing you shouldn’t do
Demandding others to change their behaviour
In general demanding that people change, or stop with something ends in war..
Thats something human history clearly teaches us..

It would be great if Yamaha would communicate more openly about this..
That would make the whole situation much less confusing..

Hi Bachus,
  Several of us were told when we got in touch with Music Soft to give them a couple of weeks to sort out European side of things.

Thank you...
Thats good to know...
Al i heared/read it should be okay in 2 weeks
But a couple of weeks could be more then just 2 weeks..

I guess Yamaha will give us a heads up call when they are ready for it?

Thank you Al,Francesco,Dromeus for your help. I did get the file downloaded but looks like I can not load CPF Files in tyros 4 :'(. Hope Yamaha comes around with a way to load them. Will keep pushing buttons.LOA.

Thanks Bill, hadnt seen that one yet.
Since i decided to wait and stop visiting the website,
Till someone here announced the situation is stable again.

Its great to see there are some directions now on Yamaha’s website..

Hello,
my experience:
I could download 6 packs via "Library" in my account (old account from Musicsoft Europe).
When ordered it shows "Pending", after a while this changes in "Available",
start download by clicking in the little square in the names of the packs in "Order".
Installed via YEM in Genos, no problems, all OK.
Regards
Eddy Vanzee

Great information on this thread.  Thanks everyone.   

Thanks to the info on this thread i have been able to successfully donwload and install some nice packs. It is appreciated.

Has Anyone been able to install the "Best of Europe" pack in a Genos keyboard ?

Hi Harden,
  You will have to make sure the Packs are for Tyros 4 because these load differently as a Library load
whereas the newer keyboards use the Yamaha Expansion Manager via computer to load packs into keyboard memory.

I think you should find that you can load the PSR-S970 version of the pack (via YEM).

Hi all

I have re-downloaded my library files from my account and they have been changed from .sme files to .cpf no need to
 re-order as I had them in my account library already.

There are 9 .cpf files for the genos I have not checked the tyros 5 files

I don't think they have the European side sorted yet so that is probably why.
