Styles Collection #6

Contents

None of the styles in this collection are available in the Styles Library introduced in January, 2012 nor in the Styles #5 collection.

The full collection includes 6,475 files and requires 277 MB of disk space. The zipped download option uses 7 files and requires 87 MB of disk space.

(3 December 2013). This is the most recent addition to the PSR Tutorial style archives. This collection has almost 6,500 styles and includes many of the new styles added to the web site in 2013, style sets provided by forum members, a number of style sets converted to work with the Tyros4 (and, of course, the new Tyros5) and other style sets new to our archives. All of the styles include 4 variations. Most of the styles (87%) include OTS.

The styles included in this collection were carefully examined and any exact duplicates were eliminated. In addition, the style candidates were compared to the styles in the Styles Library (2012) and the Styles #5 collection and any duplicates with styles in those collections were also eliminated.

The collection includes both SFF1 and SFF2 format styles. The SFF2 format styles are used in the newer keyboards (Tyros3/4/5 and the PSR-S950/S750 and S910/S710). Styles from any one of these keyboards can usually be played on any of the other newer keyboards although, in some cases, the OTS voices may have to be adjusted. But the SFF2 style format can not be used directly in older keyboards. 25 percent of the styles in this collection are in this SFF2 format and 75% are in the older SFF1 format. The newer keyboards can read all of these styles, but the older keyboards can only read the SFF1 formats.

The collection includes styles derived from a variety of the available Yamaha arranger keyboards, and styles converted from other model arrangers. Many of these have been retuned for use with the Tyros4 (and Tyros5) models. There are nearly 1,900 "song-named" styles (300 Christmas titles) for those who prefer to look for their styles by looking for a particular song. I've tried to edit the song names to more correctly reflect the actual song title where possible. There are 173 Christmas songs in SFF1 format and 84 Christmas styles set up for the Tyros4 voices.

Everyone is bound to find quite a few jewels in this collection that they can add to their favorites.
