I was happy to download these Packs of Bonus Audio Style Pack from GENOS and, when testing on the sx900, they worked very well.

What else does GENOS work on from the sx900? I saw that the sound packs didn't work.

They can be downloaded at the end of this page:

Hi Julio,

the Audio Styles you mentioned come as .ppf Expansion Packs. But you don't need to install it (via YEM):

You can also extract the Styles from the .ppf files by using the "Style Extractor V1.0.0.5" program, developed by "jexino":




Use the download link in this post of "jexino":
>>> https://www.psrtutorial.com/forum/index.php/topic,44290.msg369236.html#msg369236

Finally, just copy the extracted Audio Styles (.aus) onto a USB stick and play it directly from there.

Of course you can also copy the Styles from the USB stick to the User drive of the SX900. But be aware: The Audio Styles are about 15MB each, so these 40 Styles will need about 620MB of space in the User drive (which is 4GB).


Best regards,
Chris

Hi Chris,

Other than the *.pps data files contained in the Audio Style zip's, some of the zip's in this archive list have midi files with *.prs suffixes, and some have the *.aus suffix.    Are these interchangeable (renameable)?   And all can be read off a USB stick?

Hi Lucille,

Yamaha Styles files are basically MIDI files, but Styles contain additional data sections (e.g. the CASM section which defines certain control parameters for the auto accompaniment).

Styles ("MIDI Styles"):
   .prs = Pro Style
   .sst = Session Style
   .fps = Free Play Style
   .scp = DJ Style
   .sty = Standard Style

   .bcs = Basic Style
   .pst = Pianist Style
   .pcs = Piano Combo Style

Audio Styles ("+Audio Styles"):
   .aus

In principal, these Style file extensions are interchangeable, but this is not normally done. The only sensible case is if an older keyboard model does not recognize a certain Style type (e.g. DJ Styles .scp), then you can try to rename it to .sty.

You can always use (play) Styles directly from an USB stick. For Genos and PSR-SX models, this also applies to Audio Styles (.aus). (With older models which have a dedicated internal memory for the Wave data of Audio Styles (like Tyros5, PSR-Sx7x), I'm not exactly sure about this.)


By the way: Multi Pad bank files (.pad) and User Voices (for file types see the list below) can also be used (played) directly from a USB stick. (They are also basically MIDI files.)

User Voices (can only be used in Keyboard Parts!):
   .vce = Regular
   .liv = Live!
   .clv = Cool!
   .swv = Sweet!
   .nlv = S.Art!
   .sar = S.Art!
   .sa2 = S.Art2!
   .mgv = MegaVoice
   .org = Organ Flutes

   .drm = Drums
   .ldr = Live!Drums
   .sfx = SFX kit
   .lsf = Live!SFX kit

The only exception are Ensemble Voice files (.env). These are not MIDI files, but their internal format is similar to that of Registrations (.rgt).


Hope this helps!

Best regards,
Chris
