203 Preset Styles

PSR2100 keyboardIntroduced in the summer of 2003, the PSR2100/11000 models represented an upgrade of the PSR2000/1000 line. The new models, particularly the 2100, introduced some of the new "Sweet", "Live",and "Cool" voices from the Tyros. They had double the WAV ROM of the earlier models allowing additional realism in the voices and there were a few new styles and voices. But the basic style set was almost identical to that of the earlier models. Again, the press release highlighted the strong points of these new models, but hardly mentioned the preset styles.

PSR1100 keyboardThe original PSR2100 styles are provided in the table below. We also have quite a few styles that have been converted and tuned for use on the PSR-2100. You'll find them further down on this page. In addition, many of the conversions from other manufacturer keyboards (Other Kbds), which were tuned for the PSR2000, will sound just fine on the 2100/1100 keyboards.

368 Onacimus Sayahan Conversions for PSR2100

(Aug 2007) I made these collections of styles from the PSR9000, 9000Pro, PSR2100, PSR1500 and CVP210 for the benifit of PSR2100 owners. I thoroughly checked the 21k styles and selected various styles with a similar from the above models, which have no Mega Voices. I selected many styles from PSR 9000 and 9000Pro that are not in the 21k and also slightly different from the 21k styles. I've collected all new CVP 210 additional styles and also the new PSR1500 styles. In addition to that, I've added the 740 floppy styles that have four variations and also Break Fill in. I copied the Intros and Endings B to C and filled the missed section (B) from PSR8000. I identify the "source" of these as "740or8000."

I brought all of these together in one large collection. I made voice changes in tracks as well as in OTS to stantard panel voices acording to the availablity of PSR-2100 voices. I also made volume adjustments as needed. Very interestingly, many styles appear as 'Session' and 'Piano Compo' as in CVP and PSR-1500. Finally, I arranged them into 10 categories (BassCHold and Metronone styles were put in the Ballroom category).

More Style Conversions for the PSR2100

PSR9000 Styles

I started working on converting these styles for use with the PSR-2100. These conversions will also work on the PSR-2000 although you may need to reset some of the OTS voices. The converted styles all have one touch settings included and have accompaniment volumes adjusted to work better on the PSR2K models. In some cases, the actual accompaniment voices and the default tempo may have also been changed. The default tempo is shown in the style name. By the way, I normally play these styles with the style volume set to 90. If you'd like the accompaniment a bit louder, simply increase this value. (I had hoped to do more conversions, but keeping up this site has taken away time to tune styles. Fortunately, others have been stepping in to help.)

Tyros Styles

The PSR-2100 has many more voices in common with the Tyros than does the PSR-2000. As a result, the OTS settings could, in many cases, remain as they were on the Tyros. Not in all cases, of course, since the Tyros has many more panel voices the the 2100. The accompaniment utilizing Mega voices still had to be removed and alternative bass and guitar voices used. All the styles in each category below are stored in a single "ZIP" file. To use the styles, download this file, unzip it to extract the styles, and then copy these to a floppy disk for use in your PSR-2100. You will find that all the category styles fit on a single floppy disk (that is why the Swing & Jazz category is divided into two parts.)

New PSR2100 & PSR1100 Offer Professional Sound
and Features For Musicians on a Budget

23 April 2003. Outstanding professional sound quality and styles at unprecedented price points mark out new Yamaha keyboards; digital sheet music capability and a re-designed user interface guarantee popularity amongst professionals and hobbyists alike.

PSR2100 keyboardThe all-new Yamaha PSR2100 and PSR1100 digital keyboards are characterised by a host of features previously unseen on instruments at these price points, and benefit largely from some of the revolutionary sound and style technology developed for Yamaha's Tyros keyboard.

Both models include digital sheet music facilities and greatly improved sound quality, thanks to a vastly expanded wave ROM memory. Both also feature comprehensive karaoke functions with lyric capabilities.

All these features, plus many more new innovations, make both instruments ideal for professionals, home music makers, computer users and songwriters.

PSR1100 keyboardBoth models offer at least twice the Wave ROM memory of previous models ensuring startling sound quality, whilst new styles and content provide a refreshing new palette for users.

Stunning sound quality is achieved thanks to a combination of Yamaha's AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) tone generation, enhanced XG MIDI capability and totally redesigned stereo speaker systems incorporating bass reflex functions. Professional digital signal processing power, borrowed from the company's studio-quality effects units, further increases the sonic power of PSR1100 and 2100.

Yamaha's highly-acclaimed and exclusive "Sweet", "Cool" and "Live" voices, previously only found on the award-winning TYROS, have been incorporated, resulting in instrument sounds of breathtaking realism.

The PSR2100 features a dedicated organ flute function complete with graphic drawbars that can be individually modified, delivering classic jazz and rock organ sounds. These sounds can be further crafted thanks to the extensive programmable tremolo provided courtesy of the onboard digital signal processor.

Yamaha have found that the vocal harmoniser has become a much-used feature on the company's dedicated professional keyboards, and this feature has been enhanced and brought to the PSR2100. There is a dedicated microphone input for vocals, which feeds into the internal vocal harmoniser, allowing the 'singer' to add harmony to the voice in 'real time' and even change the gender. Vocals can be routed through the internal DSP for added realism and studio quality sound.

Both models employ a new Yamaha innovation titled LY (Lyrics) that allows the words of a song to be scrolled across the display in time to the music. Song lyrics can even be displayed together with music notation.

Yamaha have also paid particular attention to the user interface which now comprises excellent graphic representations for all functions including song, style and function lists and animated help screens. Chord data from standard MIDI files can be imported into the style section for further editing, which is perfect for songwriters and arrangers.

In addition to MIDI connections, the PSR1100 and 2100 feature a USB port enabling effortless computer connection, opening up a whole new world of educational and creative possibilities.
