New DGX 670 owner. Loving it after an EQ tweak...
« on: October 24, 2022, 02:48:17 AM »
I've had my DGX 670 for about a week now. Wow! So happy with it. But at first, the woolly tone, especially of the piano voices was really a disappointment. Thank goodness for helpful members of the DGX Facebook group. I got it EQ'd in a jiffy. Really opened it up. Sounds great. I basically took one of the presets (Bright) and tweaked it a little. Now the keyboard defaults to this adjusted tone setting and I'm a very happy camper. Here's a photo of the settings I'm using:

I assume you are setting EQ for DGX built-in speakers.
You can also adjust the Compression setting for added benefits.
My Compression settings...Comp 50. Texture 70.  Output 60. Compression needs to be switch ON.

Hi Stephen, Just wondered, did you get to see the settings screenshot?

If so, can you send me a pic/link please?

I'm looking for the richest jazz piano for the DGX 670. I like the sound of the Studio Grand, but would love to know how to tweak it to achieve the kind of sound I hear on some of the 'teaching sites' I've stumbled upon on the net.

Hope you don't mind me asking.

Cheers, Derek.

Not quite what you're looking for but have a read of this:

https://www.epianos.co.uk/how-to-sound-amazing-on-the-yamaha-dgx670/

The suggested changes to the reverb and chorus settings produce phenomenal results.

Cheers

Chris

Thank you

Very interesting topic and replies as I have had my 670 for two months and notice a "buzz" or "fuzz" on harmonically rich voices above C4.  Very noticeable on a good set of headphones.  Wondering if anyone else notices this and whether some setting in the EQ would eliminate or diminish. Appreciate all on this site and wonder why admin cant show pic.

Hi flailman,

In your case, the overall output may be too high internally, so that internal digital distortion sometimes occurs (when playing loudly). Please open the Master Compressor display and check whether the Output bar goes into the RED area for loud parts. Then you should lower the Output control there a little so that the Output bar is only green and yellow.

Another idea: If you have raised one or more frequency bands very strongly in the Master EQ, it might be helpful to lower all 5 EQ bands together using the "Total Gain Adjust" buttons.

By the way, the forum admin had deleted many file attachments from existing posts some time ago in order to make space on the forum server again. If you are interested in a specific, deleted attachment, you could ask the user in question to repost the attachment (e.g. picture).


Best regards,
Chris

➪ Everyone kept saying "That won't work!" - Then someone came along who didn't know that and just did it.
➪ Never put the manual too far away: There's more in it than you think! ;-)

Thanks Overover. Output was all green. However setting Total Gain Adjust so all are at a -dB seems to really help.  I presume hitting save will make these the default settings?

Thanks for your feedback, flailman!

By pressing Save the User Master EQ display shows up. There use one of the user slots (User1, User2, etc.), rename it to your liking and press OK to save the current MEQ settings to this user slot.

This way you can save several different User MEQ settings and quickly reload them when needed. See also the attached screenshot (DGX-670 Reference Manual, page 72).

By the way, please note that the Master Compressor settings must be saved separately in a user slot.


Best regards,
Chris
