Christmas Collection

Contents

This Christmas Collection ($20) is for the Christmas holiday. The holidays are a great time for playing your keyboard and entertaining others. You will find in this collection hundreds of style files with which you can create your own Holiday songs as well as hundreds of Christmas MIDI files.

As a special bonus, the Christmas Collecdtion Plus ($35) is delivered on a 16GB USB drive and includes nearly 900 MP3 songs from the many PSR Tutorial Christmas Jukeboxes over the years. So, even if you do not play your keyboard, you will have many hours of Christmas music created on various Yamaha arranger keyboards to help you enjoy the season.

Here is what you will find in the folders in this collection:

  • Xmas Song Styles - these are styles designed for and named after holiday songs. There are 475 styles listed alphabetically by song title in several subfolders. Most of these songs were included in the Styles #7 collection of song-styles. The tempo of the style and the performer's initials are appended to each style name.
  • Fred's Christmas Sing-Along - here is a collection of some 30 songs, including the song style, registration, text files, and even sheet music. Everything you need to create your own Christmas Sing-Along party. This collection is also available on Styles #11.
  • Yamaha Christmas - Every Yamaha keyboard has several preset styles developed for holiday songs. As new keyboards were introduced, new versions of the Christmas styles were released. You will find 75 of these original preset styles from many different Yamaha keyboards. Most of these styles appeared earlier on Styles #8.
  • OS Xmas 950-970 - Onacimus Sayahan has converted many of the original Yamaha styles for use on the S950 and S970 keyboards.There are 50 of these conversions in this folder. The entire Onacimus conversions are available on Styles #10.
  • Misc Xmas Styles - 90 additional styles not appearing elsewhere. Included in this set is a folder labeled "No OTS" that contains 60 Christmas styles without OTS. All the other styles in this collection do include OTS.
  • Denn XMAS 2018 - contains some 20 styles along with registrations developed on the Tyros4. This collection is from PSR Tutorial member Denn.
  • PSR Performer MIDI - this folder includes over 200 Christmas songs in midi format created mostly by the PSR Performers over the years. Songs are listed alphabetically in several subfolders. These songs also available on the PSR Tutorial MIDI Collection.
  • BONUS - XMAS MP3 - if you ordered this collection on a USB drive, this collection of nearly 900 MP3 songs and 3.2 GB of space is included at no extra charge. These are the songs that PSR Tutorial members contributed to the various Christmas jukeboxes that appeared each year. Songs are listed alphabetically in several subfolders. These songs are also available on the Songs 2013 and Songs 2017 collections.

I hope you enjoy exploring all the styles and voices highlighted in this collection. Perhaps it will make it easier for you to put together your own Christmas gig collection.
