Functions

  • Display, edit, add and delete music finder data records from music finder files.
  • The listing can be rearranged, sorted, printed or saved as a tab delimited text file for use with spreadsheet, word processing or database programs.
  • The program supports searching the music finder file for records with full or partial matches of Music, Genre or Keyword text. Records identified via a search operation, or records that have been manually selected, can be transferred to a PlayList window where the order can be changed, columns rearranged or sorted, comments added and the list printed or saved as a text delimited file.
  • Convert music finder files from one instrument to another. For example, you can make a PSR-3000 file from a Tyros 2 file. Edit and Replace functions may be used to select styles which exist in the target instrument.
  • You can create customized music finder files by saving only records that have been identified via a search operation or manual selection. This is useful for generating databases based upon musical tastes, or for use in live performance situations.
  • Process records that reference style, midi, or audio files that reside on storage media (Tyros 4 & 5: USB, HD; PSR-S950 & S750 & PSR-S901 & S710: USB). This includes display, editing, and generation of a missing file listing.
  • Operate on NetCommon files (i.e. files obtained from the Internet Direct Connection) and convert them to specific instrument files.
  • Use a selected entry to setup your instrument with the Tempo, Preset Style, Starting Section and Subsequent Section directly from your PC.
