Arp 3/4 & 6/8 piano styles?
« on: October 28, 2022, 12:53:46 PM »
Yamaha styles collections typically contain numerous slow and medium tempo arpeggio styles.  There are a few that are piano dominant but generally they are guitar especially in 3/4 and 6/8 time.

One of my favorites is Guitar Serenade, but it doesn't seem to be willing to become a "piano serenade".  Also, there are many ballad styles that are piano (or could be), but only appear as 4/4 styles.

If you have piano styles in 3/4 and 6/8, I'd be grateful to get access to them.   The stride and "Vienna waltz" type are not suitable for the music I want to play/record.

TIA.
Dave

You can change the guitar to a piano in a registration.

No, you need to go into style creator and change the guitar to piano within the style, then save the style with a new name.
I am not sure what he means, by “not willing to become a piano serenade”. Maybe he means it just doesn’t sound good with the instrument change.

Dave,

You should be able to use the Arp Unit Multiply parameter to get 3/4 or 6/8 time. Just set one of the Live Control knobs to control Arp Unit Multiply and experiment with it.

You don't necessarily have to go into the Style Creator, but changes to the Style that were previously made in the Mixer can also be memorized directly in Registrations. (With the restriction that the changes then apply equally to ALL Style Sections.)


Best regards,

Guess I'll have to "study up" on that, Joe!
Thanks for the input.

The style creator is not very intimidating to do something simple like an instrument change. It seems like the simplest way, why not try it. Just pick out the track with the guitar arpeggio, change instrument to piano or whatever, save the style with a new name, like piano serenade, then try it. If you don’t like it, then maybe you can take the next step and re-record just that one track yourself. Save it, see how it sounds. It’s all trial and error. You can’t do any harm.

Dave,

I think I misunderstood your question or concern.  I thought you were talking about the arpeggiator.

Sorry for the confusion.
