Style compability?
« on: December 29, 2020, 05:20:32 PM »
Hi all, I am considering to buy Sx700 but I don't know whether I can use older model's SETs like A3000, S970, S770. Can I load the older model's SETs to the Sx700?   ::)

What do you mean by SETs?  You can use old model styles on the SX700. But you will have to adjust some of them.

I had PSR S770, PSR S975 keyboards and now I have PSR SX900. With each keyboard replacement, I transferred styles and registrations from the older model without any problems. I have all these styles and registrations on a pendrive and I use them without transferring to the keyboard internal memory.
However, I've noticed that newer keyboards have interesting styles that are worth using. In addition, the PSR sx700 has three voices in the right hand, which gives more sonic possibilities. Some old styles have been abandoned for newer styles, or modified based on new styles. Also, thanks to the many participants in this forum, there are many styles of collections worth trying. Recently, many more styles have been published by Onacimus Sahayam, which is a real treasury of styles.
For me, working on a style for many songs is practically endless and is inspired by browsing through different styles collections. At some point it seems to me that the style is already adjusted, but after some time I find a new one, often from a different category. I have several or even a dozen or so styles selected and prepared for almost every song. I choose one and play. This way I avoid monotony if I play a piece many times.
How do I do it? I create a separate styles directory for each song, where I store the styles and save them after modification.
The same style, in a different directory for a different song, may have different settings. I can access this track directory from the registration buttons. There are only 8 registration buttons, but selecting any button and then clicking on a style opens the entire directory for that song, and accesses all my Styles of the selected song. So it is a matter of organizing the style collections on the keyboard. But I recommend this way of organizing styles, because we currently have large external USB sticks, and we do not need to save space on them.
So replacing the keyboard with a newer model is no obstacle to using the old styles and gives you more satisfaction.

I think he means SETTING's when he writes SETs.  Of course, your response is spot on.


Nice detailed response you a newbie or even an old cronie like me

Regards, and thanks to both of you....Stay safe

when I said SET I mean a SET with sounds+styles+registrations, all complete in one pack.
