OpenText is a program that displays a pdf file, or a page in a pdf book, when a registration is selected on a PSR, CVP or Tyros.

How it works

Normally, selecting a registration does not send any identifying messages to the PC, so there is no way for the PC to respond to a specific change in the instrument’s setup.

OpenText works around this limitation by creating a special midi song file that, when loaded by depressing the registration button, sends a message which triggers the display of an individual pdf file or a page from a song book on the PC screen.

Song page

Features

  • OpenText uses free PDF readers to view files.
  • Original files are not modified.
  • Works with all recent PSR/CVP/Tyros instruments and Windows based computers.
