Playing Your Keyboard
Now that you understand the basic of your keyboard, it's time to look at some features that will be essential in helping you use some of the most useful features that are available in your Yamaha PSR or Tyros keyboard. The sections here will help you in playing songs. You'll learn all about files, the Yamaha Music Finder System, and the Yamaha registrations. Below is a brief description of each of the subsections here.
Yamaha Files. To get the most out of your keyboard, you will have to understand the Yamaha files system since it is so key to utilizing many of the features in your keyboard. These lessons will cover basic file operations, naming files, viewing files, creating folders, copying or saving files. Since downloading files and and being able to uncompress zipped files are essential skills in working with files, this section also provides lessons on downloading and unzipping files.
Music Finder. The Music Finder feature, which is available in all the Yamaha arranger keyboards since the PSR-2000 was introduced, gives you a quick jump start to getting the right mix for a number of songs. Simply select the song you want from the Music Finder database and the keyboard will immediately be configured for an appropriate style, tempo, and introduction. The lessons in this section will tell you all you need to know to master the Music Finder feature. You will also find a number of Music Finder databases that you can download and use in your own keyboard.
Registrations. This feature is one of the most useful on the Yamaha keyboards but it is one that users have had difficulty understanding. So, it is the first section we have completed under "Playing Your Keyboard." Lessons here will help you to understand what the registration memory is all about, show you how to create and use your own registration files, and provide some examples of different registration files you may want to create. Open up the Registrations link and you will see additional links to the lessons in that subsection.
Recording Songs. Many users will want to capture their music and record it so that they can listen to themselves play and also share their songs with others. In this section, the lessons will show you how to do a quick record of your song, how to do a multi track recording, how to use your personal computer and PC software to capture your song on the PC and save it there, and, with a Tyros3, you can record audio files and then export them as WAV files to your PC where you can create your own CDs or convert them to MP3 versions.
