Version 2 DJX-II styles for PSR now available
« on: July 02, 2021, 06:39:08 PM »
Hi all --

I'm happy to announce version 2 of my DJX-II styles for Yamaha Genos, Tyros and PSR arrangers.

These PSR DJ styles are converted from the original Yamaha DJX-II patterns. If you would like to know more about the conversion process, please see:

These are DJ styles, so they only respond to changes in the root note. The chord progressions are cooked into the patterns (just like intros and endings in regular PSR styles). I tried to find the best mapping from DJX-II patterns to style sections. Therefore, some of the DJX-II styles have auto-fill, some do not. Longer "fill" patterns are assigned to the intro and ending sections which can play more than one measure.

Feel free to edit, rearrange and customize the styles in order to make them your own. I recommend Jørgen Sørensen's excellent tools.  Jørgen's site also has documentation and tutorials about styles and style creation to help you along.

You can find the ZIP file at:

http://sandsoftwaresound.net/free-djx-ii-styles-version-2/

Version 2 includes all of the files in the first collection. Version 2 adds Drum'n'Bass, Disco, House and Trip Hop styles. The ZIP file includes a README.TXT file which should help you get started with the styles. I have also included PDF notation files for people who read music and want to know about the chord progressions, bass lines, and so forth.

Enjoy! The DJX-II style collection is free.
