EQ setting erase
« on: February 12, 2021, 05:17:04 PM »
Hi Guys, I have kept my EQ settings, almost since I bought my sx900, (EQ Enildo, QuiRobinez, and others) but I realized this morning that they were gone. What could I have done wrong?  I appreciate your advice.  Hans

Hi Hans,

have you maybe loaded another User-Effect file (.eff)?

Or did you perform a factory reset with the "User Effect" checked?

This would overwrite the following settings:
User Effect types
User Master EQ types
User Master Compressor types
User Vocal Harmony/Synth Vocoder types
User microphone/guitar settings


Have you checked the USER memories (1 - 30) of Master EQ and Master Compressor? Are they all empty now?

If you have a backup file (.eff) of your User Effects, you can use it to restore the Master EQ settings now. (All other User Effect settings would also be overwritten!)


Best regards,
Chris

Hi Chris, thank you very much for your prompt reply. I really don't have a copy of the EQ settings.
on the other hand I would like to ask you what is a file (eff).?  and how I keep it so it doesn't get lost.  Hans

You most likely loaded a registration which changed the eq settings. To stop this happening in the future, you should set parameter lock for eq.

Hi Hans,

please refer to the pages 129, 132 and 133 of the SX900 Reference Manual. On page 133 is described how save or load the three different Setup Files System (.ssu), MIDI (.msu) and User Effect (.eff) individually.
>>> https://uk.yamaha.com/en/products/musical_instruments/keyboards/arranger_workstations/psr-sx900/downloads.html#product-tabs


P.S.
The User System settings, User MIDI settings and User Effect settings are also saved in the .bup file using the Backup function (page 132). But note that such a .bup Backup file also includes the whole content of the User drive, and when you restore a .bup file, all mentioned User settings and also the User drive are overwritten.)

P.P.S.
The Master EQ settings can only be saved in one of the 30 User memories (USER1 - USER30) in the Master EQ display. The Master EQ settings cannot be memorized to Registrations. But the Master EQ settings can be changed by MIDI files that contain Master EQ SysEx (and also by a Registration that calls up such a MIDI file). Therefore, I strongly recommend to have ticked "Master EQ" in the "Parameter Lock" display (page 130 of the SX900 Reference Manual). The Master EQ settings then can only be changed manually in the Master EQ display, but not accidentally by calling up a MIDI file.

P.P.P.S.
Directly on the keyboard you cannot save the Master EQ settings into a MIDI file. But with a MIDI Sequencer program (DAW) or very easily with the "Midifile Optimizer" on the computer this can be done. (And those MIDI files can accidentally overwrite your Master EQ settings when not locked in "Parameter Lock".)


Best regards,
Chris

Hi Chris, thank you very much for that detailed answer.
I'm going to follow your recommendations and take a look at the reference manual.
Regards. Hans
