Just ordered SX700, playlists and registration memories
« on: August 14, 2020, 03:39:07 PM »
I am excited for my sx700 that I just ordered and I am reading up.  :)

This is my first post.

I just have questions on playlists, etc
I came from PSR EW400 background where playlist was not a concept (afaik) so please bear with me.  ;)


1. How many maximum playlist items can one store?
2. Is a playlist item = 1 registration bank of multiple memories?
3. I saw in the midi implementation it can receive/recognize Program Changes. Is that to switch to a voice or to switch to a playlist item ( I suspect and hope it is the latter). I use an iPad app called setlist maker that can send Program Changes to MIDI devices so I would like to do the same to SX700.

Thanks!

-Zack

You will find some free Playlists to download on the Yamaha site. They have now taken the place of Music Finder and are much more useful. You can save as many as you like.

1. A maximum of 2500 recordings can be made in one Playlist
2. Yes, each place (record) in the Playlst calls the appropriate Bank Registration
3. Sysex information is sent when each Bank is activated and is also activated with each Registration. This way you can connect the app to the iPad.

In the description of this video you have a large MDF database that has been converted to a Playlist.

In this video I explained how to create your own Playlist.
