Hi Eileen

They downloaded in the end
All packs look ok now on the usa site
All load into the Genos
I lke the Celtic pack and the organs not too bad ,but the choirs . Hu Hu and that's it
I would not go overboard on these sounds , but one or two are useful.
I got the choir i was after with sample robot . Now that is worthwhile .

All the best

Congratulation. I could only download a few packs, most consistently fail after loading 50-200 MB. Tried with Firefox and Chrome.

The MusicSoft site is still under construction, so if you can't download the packs you can get a copy from my Dropbox.
The packs are not ID encrypted so they need no key when you import them in Yamaha Expansion Manager.

This is the link to the free packs: https://www.dropbox.com/s/r686w5l7o8kal62/Free%20packs%201%20Jul%202020.zip?dl=0
I included these packs: BallroomStyle, Celtic, Colors of Iberia2, Choir& Vocals, Euro&UsOrgan
I didn't download the packs that were included in the GenosV2.0 SuperiorPack; SA2 FemaleVocals_Genos, SA2 PanFlutes_Genos, SA2 Trombone_Genos. I didn't include the other free packs as they are for PSR only.

Thank you, Stijn, much appreciated. "Best Of Europe"appears to be ID encrypted, so I was not able to import that pack into YEM.

Hi,

A Stupid question.  My Genos memory is already filled a lot. But I also want these freebies, mostly styles.  Is there a way to delete any voices or styles from these free packs (which i don't like) and save some space in my Genos memory. Will un-checking them while installation save me space in Genos memory ?

Hi Anand,

STYLES that are installed via a .cpf or .ppf Pack do NOT require any storage space in the Voice Wave Expansion Memory (but the included Styles will be automatically copied to the corresponding subfolder of the Expansion folder in the USER drive when installing Packs on the instrument).

To save space in the Voice Wave Expansion Memory you can simply deselect unneeded Voices in Expansion Packs. (Click on the desired Voices so that the green checkmark disappears.)

Chrs

The latest info I heard from Germany is that the European Site will be available round the end of september.  After expirering the license of their sites Yamaha take in considering to go along the old way with the sales oft software that way. Finally they agreed to make a new site and change some policy. First they agreed to finish the USA site. Later the Euro site. Bringing all the names and purchases over to there new site took a long time. And than also carona.

The new policy is.  The Premium packs  give away for free. Except  of course those from third parties. They also had in mind to do that for styles and song (midi) files. The problem here. Copyright of the composers. So Yamaha makes new Premium packs  therselve is still the question.

Another option is to use YEM Content Explorer to extract the styles from the packs.  That way you can keep them on the User Drive or on a USB stick. But keep in mind that saving those styles without the pack Voices will require you to do a remix of the styles and they may not sound as good without those pack Voices.

Hi Joe,

to my knowledge, the "YEM Content Explorer" (YEM-CE) can NOT extract Styles from .cpf Packs (only from .ppf Packs).

So after downloading all packs, I found that only about 10 of them have the filename that ends with genos.cpf
The rest of the packs - like entertainer and eurodance - have filenames pointing to other models like S700 and S900 series.
Will we be able to load those into Genos?

Beware that some styles from expansion packs use voices from the pack especially drum-kits or percussion.
So even if you install only the styles without the corresponding voices, the styles would not sound correctly since will missing voices...

None of the EuroDance packs worked for me.

The only one I could even import to YEM was the S770 one, and that's only because I used to have an S770 so it's still on the install target list. But when I selected the Genos as target, it would not let me select the EuroDance pack to include in the install file.

However Euro/US organ and Choir have worked fine. Thank you Yamaha for those :)

I think Yamaha will propose tons of new high quality samples in new expansions (strings choir piano.... see additional packages for which there is no pictures nor details yet...) and considers it’s worth giving freely old Tyros, Genos, motif and montage expansions...

Yes, downloaded some I did not already have bought, and today I can see Yamaha has uploaded almost all packs as free.
Browse the style & expansion page, when down to end, click 'see more'. Even expansion for Montage and Motif stuff now added.
Site still very slow, but as they say, it take a week or two before things will be better........

Now we can wonder why Yamaha act like Santa Claus these days... Is it the end of creating addon packs, or is it due to new products coming that will have totally new fileformats, or is it the end of the Yamaha Arranger production? 🤔
Anyway, those of you that don't have these packs, it's a lot of great styles and sounds to enjoy.

As we know the European side of things is still being worked on and because we don't use zip codes we can not get into the American site to download properly. We just have to be patient. All will work out in the end.

In fact the ZIP code is no problem at all. I entered 00000 which was accepted, and I didn't care about billing or shpping adress, after all who needs a bill of zero bucks and a download needs no shipping. Well, err, maybe it needs shipping... LOL

Anyway, meanwhile shopping at the site works very well (besides being slow). But downloading is still fishy. Small packs (e.g. Baritone Sax) did work for me, while larger ones (> 150MB) generally fail. With exceptions, today I was lucky enough to download the Vintage Synth pack  8) :)

Its just a matter of being patient, i for one stepped away from trying weeks ago, till Yamaha gives thego for EU customers. Saves me a lot of frustration

Yamaha MusicSoft are not helping themselves, they are including lots of different versions in the download, hence the download is VERY large.

For those people that do not want to wait, try installing a Free Download Manager on your Computer or Browser. It will automatically continue the download after it gets interrupted by the Yamaha Server.

https://www.freedownloadmanager.org/download.htm     is just one.

With Yamaha having difficulties getting the free downloads to work in Europe, I can only wonder if they will ever get around to making them available in New Zealand, where I live! I doubt if there are very many Genos owners here so Yamaha may not consider us worth bothering with. But thankfully it is a fabulous instrument just as it is without any extras.

Hi Dromeus,

each of these .cpf Packs works on exactly ONE model (for which Yamaha originally made it). Tyros5-61 and Tyros5-76 are treated as two different models in this case: I just tried to import the Tyros5-76 version of the T5 Entertainer Pack to my YEM (in which I have my "Genos" and my "Tyros5-61" as Install Targets), and I got an error message (see attached picture).

Hi,

this weekend I could download some more packs from the Yamaha site:

* Alpen
* Choir & Vocal
* Country Musician
* Euro & US Organ
* SA2 Female Vocal
* Vintage Keyboard
* Vintage Synth Pack
* Many regional packs (Europe, Balkan, Celtic, Iberia V1+2, Romania V2, Italy V1+2, South-East-Europe, Middle Eastern, Latin, Mexican, Cumbia, Salsa....)

In my opinion, this is of great value. Some voices are already available in the legacy folder or in the Genos 2.0 Superior pack. But others are not. I always wanted to have the Vintage Keys and the Vintage Synth packs, as well as the Country pack, but they were quite expensive. Now we can get them for free.

Thank you Yamaha for this great gift.

Uli

P.S.: Euro Dance and Entertainer packs are available for PSR (all models) and T5 only, but not for Genos. I expect, that these packs will come for Genos, too.
P.S.: Church & Christmas is still missing for Genos, but seems to be on the way.

They say that stupid questions don't exist, so I take the chance. I thought Yamaha of loading Expanions Packs through Yem for copyright protection reasons was. If they give these packs away for free, why not take this protection off so that they can be used, for example, via a USB stick, just like the Playlist for Genos. It is more flexible then  for apply them in a registration and play it on every other Genos. That is one of the reasons I don't use Expansion Packs.

There is another important reason for Yem, other then protection... it links all those styles and the os to the new sounds.... it makes sure styles and registrations know where the sounds are...

Imagine you get a style from a friend that links to a user sound on his Genos.. the style will never work for you unless you import both the style and the sound trough Yem...

It's true that they don't need to be protected if they are free.

But expansion data contains sample waveforms. And the genos cannot read sample data from usb. It can only use them if installed onto the internal expansion memory.

That's the case .  You need to have that Pack installed. When  like the free Playlist for Genos Yamaha distributed with the explanation to place Packs  in the root dir. e.g. , than everybody uses the same structure. Than the problem in your answer is solved.

Yes you can copy the styles to usb if you want. But if they use voices from the pack, as most do, you will have to substitute other voices from your preset or expansion voices.

They say that stupid questions don't exist, so I take the chance. I thought Yamaha of loading Expanions Packs through Yem for copyright protection reasons was. If they give these packs away for free, why not take this protection off so that they can be used, for example, via a USB stick, just like the Playlist for Genos. It is more flexible then  for apply them in a registration and play it on every other Genos. That is one of the reasons I don't use Expansion Packs.

Wim,

it is a very good question.

There are two types of protection:

* CPF bound to an account: this ensures copyright
* CPF bound to a specific model (like the free Genos 2.0 Superior pack)

Earlier they provided packs in PPF format. Thus, the Pack "Euro Dance for PSR" could be used on Genos, too. Now they provide their packs in CPF format bound to specific models (SX900, T5, T5_76, Genos). Thus they ensure that the packs are used only on the intended models.

I don't know, if this has a specific intention. Perhaps, keep people from complaining that a PSR-Pack does not sound well on Genos. Or ensuring, that style could be programmed really type specific without causing issues on other models?

But indeed, they could give the free CPFs on a regular download page instead of using the complicated way of purchase.

So Wim, your question is really good.

Uli

P.S.: Ok, your question was about YEM. My answer was about protection. So, anyway, I hope it was interesting.

Several years ago I posted 24 custom dance styles I had re-mixed using the Euro Dance pack Voices.  I did this on my S970.  I also posted versions for the S950 and Tyros4/Tyros5.  I found that MOST of the PSR Euro Dance Voices were on the T4 and T5 as Preset Voices. So for the Tyros version I had to remap the Euro Dance Voices using special Voice files I made for MixMaster and StyleMagic.

Yamaha released 12 Euro Dance styles specifically for the T5.  I bought these by mistake and I had to match up the Voices with the PSR 970 Euro Dance pack Voices so they would play right on my S970.

But assume you could install the PSR Euro Dance pack on the T5 or Genos so the Voices would be the same as the PSR, but the Euro Dance pack styles for the T4 and T5 Euro Dance style pack use the internal Preset Euro Dance Voices... so that wouldn't work very well.

Friends,

I downloaded all Free expansion packs  Such as Indian Tal pack, Indian 2, Indian Entertainer and Indian devotional Pack for using on Tyros 5 keyboard.

But, none of the above packs are working for Tyros5, some voices are not getting ticked in Yamaha Expansion Manager software.
Anybody tried these packs on Tyros 5 ?
