multipads
« on: December 30, 2020, 12:20:42 AM »
In PSR S975, is it possible to engage one multipad button to give one continuous background for example strings, one multipad button for accompanying organ, one multipad button for accompanying flute etc that will change when the cord is changed?
Are we limited to the multipads supplied on the unit (mostly they are percussion sounds).
Thanks

You can create your own multipads. And they will follow the chord if you set it up that way (there's a setting to follow, or not, chords).

So, yes, you can do what you want.

And you are not limited just to the multipads on the keyboard, you can import multipads. But if the voices of the inported pads are not on the keyboard, they will not sound.

Yes there are lots of multi pads out there that will work fine. You may need to re-voice them if they have used voices from the expansion packs but that is easy enough to do in Multi pad creator.

Nmerali, search the Reference Manual for your Yamaha model for "Multi Pad Editing" or "Editing Multi Pads." Then follow those instructions exactly, and I name my resulting multi pad with the name of my song. That way, I do not mistakenly copy over the original multi pad by mistake.

The result is I have a custom, newly-created multi-pad that could include a keyboard phrase, guitar strumming, a hand clap, and strings -- all working at the same time. It is well worth it.

Thanks, and happy new year everyone.
