Rikki's Style Collection for SX900
« on: July 25, 2020, 03:39:22 PM »
Hello again
I have been using Rikki's styleas for the sx900 and find them really good.
I am having a problem with the Ballroom Theatre Ballad style. It doesn't play on the sx900 like the other Theatre styles eg Foxtrot etc. It is a free play but sounds awful on the sx900. Looking at the style file it is listed as an .fps file.is anybody else having the same problem please. Not sure whether it is the type of file that is wrong or the conversion from the Tyros 5.
Cheers everyone, Happy playing.
Geoff
PS tried the style re voicing and style assembly but can't get anywhere with it.
Could do with a video tutor on Style assembly seems a bit complicated.

Maybe If you transpose the lower up around 5 to 6 tones ( 10 to 12 semi tones ) and drop the upper an octave ...it does sound a bit better.(i often do this with my conversions.) I have never bothered trying to find a way to raise the lower an octave but there might be? Octave only seems to work on upper.

and then save your adjustments to a reg. although its a 'Heath Robinson' way of doing it ...it does work ok ..lol

Free styles are tricky 'at best' i would tend to just use some of the many others Rikki kindly posted for free and take out some of the style tracks. These often time make decent DIY freestyles, in some cases.

I have loads of organ conversions and they are not all 100% - it is difficult.

Try the style from Tyros 5. It certainly sounds fine in Genos.

Hi,
unfortunately I think it is a Tyros 5 style, I left it in the database of styles, because it was the only version of that particular style amongst the collection I had.

So guessing it might be unique to the T5?

A lot of the other styles ,  I had more than one version to choose from ( ie be it from a psr 950 or a T3 etc) so I added the version I thought sounded best on the sx. to the database.

I didnít want to leave the 1 ofís out, just in case someone really wanted one, and was able to fix it.

I use a very limited number of styles, and really only fix  the odd one, if I need it.


Iím guessing voice used in that particular style hasnít got an equivalent in the sx900, whereas it might have in the Genos,  because Eileen mentioned it sounds ok in Genos?

Sorry, not much help, I havenít tried using revoicing  programs.
Best wishes
Rikki

Hi ,
Just had a quick look at it,

I brought up the Channels, on/off section to see the different style tracks.

Default on chord one, variation 1 , isnít even an organ, itís bringing up a bank/program change that doesnít exist in the sx900. so playing some weird sound.

What I normally do if sounds are wrong,  just play each of the style parts ie variations, introís etc  and go thru the sounds and pick which sounds best. and just take a note of it. I mute the other tracks, and bring them in as needed.

Then I go to the style editor and change them.

Thereís probably easier ways using software, but since I donít have to do it often, it works ok for me.


Best wishes
