Finger snap effect.
« on: October 18, 2021, 04:52:10 AM »
Hello everyone,
I see that "finger snap" is listed in the drum/sfx/standard kit1 on the G0 key, but playing that key sounds quite different, maybe a snare drum.
Like to make a pad loop for "Fever" and "Moondance".
I've tried a lot of other kits including those in Legacy and all 61 notes without success.
Can't find a suitable style which includes the effect either.
Any thoughts? Thanks,
Robert.

Hi Robert,

The lowest C on a 61 note Yamaha keyboard is called "C1".

To play lower notes, e.g. "G0" use the "Upper Octave -" button to transpose the keyboard one or two octaves down. (Press both "Upper Octave" buttons at the same time to quickly switch back to the normal octave setting.)


Best regards,
Chris

They always said: "This is not possible!"  Then someone came and - just did it!

Never put the manual too far away.  There's more in it than you think!

Hi Eileen,
Many thanks again, your knowledge is so valuable to the forum.
Hi Chris,
That answer didn't even occur to me having never played an 88. ☺. Thank you too.
Best wishes,
Robert.

Hi Robert,

Here are some additions:

The MIDI note range comprises 128 notes (note # 0 - 127). However, with the previous Yamaha keyboards (e.g. PSR-S/SX, Tyros models, Genos) the drum kits use a maximum of MIDI notes # 13 - 91.

There is also a difference in the octave designation between "MIDI note" and "Keyboard note", as you can see from the "Drum/SFX Kit List" in your keyboard's Data list. But if you transpose the keyboard two octaves down (or up), you will definitely reach all available drum instruments, e.g. when creating Multi Pads or your own Styles.

By the way: If you cannot reach the desired octave with the "Upper Octave" buttons, the octave for the keyboard part you are using is probably not set to zero. Call up the display "Menu > Voice Part Setup" to check (or set) the octave position of the individual keyboard parts. (See also the attached pictures.)


P.S.
The new PSR-A5000 is currently the only model that can use all 128 MIDI note numbers in drum kits.


Best regards,
Chris

Hi Chris,
Always enjoy reading your additional notes, gives an understanding rather than just a solution. Always add them to my own PSR FAQ file too.

I use voice edit quite a bit, the last was to create a set of tibia clausa voices, 16,8,4,&2 from a single 8 foot voice by octave shift and rename.
Have a feeling it might be a bit crude as I've no doubt a sample for each pipe would be more accurate, but seems to work quite well in combination.

Thanks and best wishes,
Robert.
