Thanks Julio. In order to download the files, do we have to register as member of Yamaha Brazil? I was trying to get the files but when making the registration they ask in what zone of Brazil I live.  :o

Regards!

Thanks Julio but it didn't let me, didn´t work. Once a click over the corresponding link, I receive a registration screen with obligatory fields, nome, sobrenome, email, estado, tel, edade and a few others. It doesn't let me register because I'm not a Brasilian resident.  ::)

Probably you could share those files in another way.

BACHATA BRASIL Expansion Pack



Genos: https://download.yamaha.com/files/tcm:39-1368163     cpf size: 22 MB; ppi contains only 5 Styles
PSR-SX900: https://download.yamaha.com/files/tcm:39-1368471     cpf size: 22 MB; ppi contains only 5 Styles
PSR-SX700: https://download.yamaha.com/files/tcm:39-1368491     cpf size: 22 MB; ppi size: 80 MB (!), contains 63 Styles (!)
PSR-SX600: https://download.yamaha.com/files/tcm:39-1368470     cpf size: only 1 MB; ppi contains only 5 Styles

There are obviously still various inconsistencies with these new BRAZIL packs. E.g. the size of the .cpf file in some cases does not match the corresponding .ppi file, and the number of styles it contains differs greatly between the different versions of a pack. I therefore suspect that the download files for these packs will be changed / corrected by Yamaha in the future.


P.S.
Here are the download links and file sizes of the "BRAZILIAN PACK 3" (these links were originally posted by Vali   >>> here):



Genos: https://download.yamaha.com/files/tcm:39-1368478    cpf size: 68 MB; ppi size: 54 MB, contains 31 Styles
PSR-SX900: https://download.yamaha.com/files/tcm:39-1368481    cpf size 67 MB; ppi size: 54 MB, contains 31 Styles
PSR-SX700: https://download.yamaha.com/files/tcm:39-1368485    cpf size 67 MB; ppi size: 112 MB (!), contains 89 Styles (!)


Edit 2020-10-30: Links are offline!

Chris

Does this proceed? Just one thing I didn't understand one thing ...

Why does BRAZILIAN PACK 3 for the sx700 have 89 styles and for the sx900 only 31?

And why the BACHATA BRASIL for the sx700 has 63 styles and for the sx900 only has 5?

I didn't understand, because the sx900 has more space for memory ...

Hi Julio,

I downloaded these Packs using the links above. So far I haven't imported any of the Packs into the YEM, but only extracted the Styles from the .ppi files provided (with the help of the "StyleExtractor" program). It is possible that some of these .ppi files "mistakenly" contain multiple Packs (and therefore contain so many styles).

As I said, there are obviously still some inconsistencies with some of these Packs. In any case, in some cases the content of the .cpf does not match that of the .ppi.

I also don't know why these .ppi files and also the .pqi files (Quick Pack Installation files) are included in the zip files at all. If you install a .ppi file on the keyboard, all previous Expansion content is deleted. Therefore nobody actually "needs" these .ppi (and also .pqi) files.

Anyway: At least this way you have access to the mentioned STYLES ... ;-)


P.S.
Maybe if you register for these Packs on the Yamaha website in Brazil, you will get OTHER ("better") download links. If you download these new Brazilian packs for YOUR keyboard in this way, please write here which files (including file size) are contained in the zip files!


Best regards,
Chris

It was the first time, in more than 20 years playing yamaha keyboards, that I see Brazilian styles with a real Brazilian style.
I cannot say that they are 100%, but you have to recognize that this time there is a lot of good and authentic things.
Some styles require adjustments, but this is the least. The old pack (Brazilian_S970), brought some improvements, it is true, but this one brings much more.
What Yamaha has to keep doing is this, hiring real musicians in each country, because they know what is good and what is not good.
Not wanting to belittle it, but putting a Japanese to record Mexican styles doesn't make much sense.
Another point: I don't know why Yamaha still uses old drum kits (StandardKit1) to record new styles.

Very good Yamaha !!!

Another point: Yamaha, please, when launching a new pack, replace the image with a new one and not just the name.
So much work when making all the voices and styles and save on the simplest thing!
Okay, I know that Brazil is well known for football, but even today I don't know what has to be this player kicking the ball,

Hi Enildo,
hi Denny,

this message ...


... normally means that the .cpf file you are trying to import into the YEM was created for another instrument (whose .n27 Instrument Info file is not currently in the YEM). So please make sure that the .cpf file used was actually created for the instrument used. (For example, an SX700 .cpf cannot be used with an SX900.)

If the problem persists, I recommend to download the Pack again (delete the previous downloaded zip file from this Pack before to avoid confusion), unzip again and try to import the cpf into the YEM again. I also had problems with one of the linked zip files (unfortunately I no longer know which pack is exactly). After another download, the content of the zip file was ok.

And, of course, be sure to use the right version of the Pack for your instrument.


P.S.
Two questions to both of you:
- Did you download the Packs using the links here in this forum thread or did you register on the Brazilian Yamaha website and then received the download links from Yamaha?
- If the latter is the case, are these the same links as posted here, or have you received other links from Yamaha?


Best regards,
Chris

Hi Enildo,
hi Denny,

I just tried to import the SX900 version of the "Bachata Brasil" Pack into YEM without success. Since I do not own an SX900, I have only a relatively old SX900 Instrument Info file (.n27).

Please make sure to have installed the latest Firmware (V1.05) on your SX900. As a precaution, export the Instrument Info file from the SX900 again to a USB stick, delete the previous Install Target "PSR-SX900" in the YEM, and then re-import the current .n27 file into the YEM.

The import of the relevant Pack may then work.


Best regards,
Chris

Hello ;D
I extracted the styles (ppi with StyleExtractor).
I have 74 styles in total, 9 of which are Classic styles.
They all work great on Tyros 4. They only need to be adapted to the Tyros 4 - Mixing Console capabilities.
The styles are great.
Thank you  overover and valimaties.

Thanks for the feedback, Enildo!

This confirms my assumption that these packs are somehow "not quite finished". Yamaha will surely fix the bug(s), the only question is how long this will take ...

Hi Denny,

thank you for the detailed feedback!

Both of these links were previously posted in this thread: The first link (...1368471) is "SX900 Bachata Brasil", the second link (...1368481) is "SX900 Brazilian Pack 3".


... I just tried to download the Bachata File again now, it no longer has the ppi file or the other one.
Just the CPF File in the Zip now. This was from the Brazil Yamaha site & Yamaha Emailed the Link. ...

Thank you for this additional information. I will also check the DL links again ...

Edit:
I checked all available DL links for these two Packs again:

So far nothing has changed, i.e. in addition to the .cpf files, the zip files also contain .ppi and .pqi files. The mentioned "wrong" .ppi files (of the SX700 versions), which contain "too many" styles, are still contained in the downloaded zip files.


Best regards,
Chris

Hi Chris

You are right, sorry about that I thought the last link I got from Yamaha was for
the Bachata but I guess it was for Brazilian Pack 3. They don't say in the Email
what it's for, if it does I can't read it. ;D

I just tried registering at the Brazil site again now & clicked the link for Bachata
SX900, downloaded it & tried to install in YEM still no go.

Hi Julio,

you can download the "StyleExtractor" V1.0.0.5 here:
>>> https://app.box.com/s/4vnkhd61rh6xig6tssl7puuvtcved1yc

P.S.
You will find the extracted Styles in a newly created folder in the directory of the .ppi or .ppf file used.

Hi guys links are offline now ... but I had time to download them.
Once extracted with Style Extractor there are only these two styles that are not loaded correctly on the SX900 (the styles extracted from the SX700 Brazilian Pack). All the others are perfect ...
But whit CapitalBrownRockBR.STY and Elec Free Play 2.STY an error appears on the display and they are not read by the SX900.
it's strange because the other Elec Free Pay 1 is perfect (by the way it is one very nice style).
if they work for you can shared them?
PS :With Style Works XT Universal I corrected the styles but I "lost" the OTS and Intro 2 and 3  :o

As already mentioned above, the direct download links for "Brazilian Pack 3" and "Bachata Brasil" are OFFLINE at the moment.

There were various inconsistencies / errors in the previous versions of these Packs. Presumably these are being corrected by Yamaha at the moment. When the downloads are available again, we will post it here.

Hi Julio,

could you post here the new links you got to download "Bachata Brasil" Pack and "Brazilian Pack 3"?

Right now I can't figure it out ...


Best regards,
Chris

Hi Francesco,

thank you very much for posting these new links to download the now fixed versions of the new Brazilian Packs! :)


P.S.
What I just noticed: The different versions of these two Packs for the individual keyboard models all have the same Pack name in the YEM. For this reason, you cannot import a particular Pack in multiple versions into the YEM (e.g. Genos and SX900 version).


Best regards,
Chris

HI guys,
I was able to download all the packs before going offline. From the ppi files I have extracted all styles. I counted 94 different styles. most of the styles came from the SX700 ppi packs ... more styles seem to have nothing to do with Brazil  ::)  (many were from the Mexican Banda Pack)
I tried to create a single Brazilian Pack ... but I have a problem
To this pack I would like to add the missing voices of the Bachata Pack SX900: 1) LatinAccForS.vce 2) LatinAccSuper 3) PercussionBR Kit.lsf
and all those of the Brasilian Pack SX900.
But I can't use YEM (note that my pack is not cpf but ppf) so I don't understand why I can't add .vce voices (YEM only allows importing .uvn or .uvd voices).
Can any of you with more experience succeed in this? if so how? thank you and good music
Pietro

Hi,

Your Brazilian pack is indeed PPF but other 2 (Brazilian v2 and Bachata) are CPF (nothing to do with these just install and use)
For SX 900 YEM doesn't accept factory sounds like VCE.

Hi Misu, so all the SX900 (.vce)  files that I have in a folder of the PC, can be used (loaded on the keyboard) only from USB? Is there no possibility to import them into YEM or to create a .ppf file of voices only? Thanks for this.
Pietro

PS For SX900 owners these styles were included in the ppi file of the SX700's Bazilian pack. They are not present in the SX900 pack if you are interested they are at this link

@Aquilauno
Hi Pietro,

.vce files are only so called "Voice Set" file (also known as "User Voice" files). These files do not contain any Samples but only setting data.

User Voices are created when you save a Preset or Expansion Voice to the User drive or to a USB stick from the Voice Selection display or from the Voice Edit display (called "Voice Set" on older models).

Generally, such User Voices can only be used in Keyboard Parts (not in Styles, MIDI files or Multi Pads).

.vce files can also be found in the folders of your installed Expansion Packs inside the "Expansion" folder on the internal User drive. These .vce files are used to call up the installed Expansion Voices (using the Voice Selection display).

Note: User Voices can have many different file extensions. I recently made this list (that can be found on several websites meanwhile ;) ):

.vce .VCE = Regular
.liv .LIV = Live!
.clv .CLV = Cool!
.swv .SWV = Sweet!
.nlv .NLV = S.Art! (Tyros5)
.sar .SAR = S.Art!
.sa2 .SA2 = S.Art2!

.mgv .MGV = MegaVoice
.org .ORG = Organ Flutes

.drm .DRM = Drums
.ldr .LDR = Live!Drums
.sfx .SFX = SFX
.lsf .LSF = Live!SFX


In conjunction with the YEM, you can do ... NOTHING with those User Voice files. ;)

What you CAN do: You can copy the files onto a USB stick or to the User drive and use the files to call up the INSTALLED Expansion Voices (instead of using the .vce files in the "Expansion" folder, e.g. to make a "Favorite Voices" folder).

-----

How to make a PACK with your favorite Expansion contents:
    - First of all: You can do the following only with unprotected Packs (.ppf).
    - Just select the desired contents in a certain Pack and export it as a new .ppf Pack (using the function "Export Selected Content as Pack).
    - Then create a new, empty Pack and use the function "Import Content" to import several .ppf Packs you made before into the new Pack.

Important: When you have finished your new Pack, SAVE it in .ppf format. If you don't do this, you cannot re-import the Pack into the YEM later if needed (for example because of an error with the YEM).


Hope this helps!

Best regards,
Chris

Hi Chris, very interesting. I was convinced that installing a pack would add styles, drum kits and voices not present on the keyboard (thus expanding the pre-installed ones). Taking a practical example ... The installation of Brazilian Pack 3, adds new styles (like VaneraRomantica), drumkit (like Brasilkit1, but doesn't add new voices to the pre-installed ones ?. Yet when I read the specifications of a Yamaha Expansion Pack that I want to buy is mentioned the n ° of new styles, the n ° of new drumkit and the n ° of new voices (?!) this confused me. I was convinced that they were samples and not just setting data, in practice they are not voices new but processing of data already present in the keyboard. This is why if a Mega sound, not present in the SX900 it will be loaded but will not be played by Right 1, 2, 3 ... 
Thank you for expanding my limited knowledge.

ps: why the 1004 MB of the Voices Wave Size ... decrease significantly by selecting the various Voices. Data files should not be small in size?

Voices from packs are not added to pre installed ones. You select them from the Expansion voice folder
by pressing the Expansion/User button
