Mark Z's Multipad Files

(5 January 2013) Playing an Arranger-Keyboard can be done in several ways. You can play with everything the keyboard offers you and that is quite a lot. You can go a step further and give your music a personal touch that goes beyond the Preset-Styles and the One Touch Settings .

One way to do this is playing with the use of new MultiPads, which you can load into your keyboard. When your keyboard has the Synchro Start for the MultiPads, they can play like a track in the accompaniment section of a style.

Your keyboard has 4 One-Touch Settings for each style, enough to play a song. But there are 8 buttons for Registrations, which can be made to your own taste. In fact, you can see these 8 Registrations as 8 One Touch Settings in which the MultiPads can also be included. Playing with 8 Registrations enriches your music.

You can make your own MultiPads by recording them or you can use the Padmakers programs made by Michael Bedesem, which are very easy to use. MultiPads can be made out of Midifiles (PadMakerMIDI) or from Styles (PadMaker) by using Michael's Padmaker programs. Once you have a MultiPad, you can edit them in many ways in your keyboard.

After reading this, I hope you will enjoy the MultiPads you find on this page or the MultiPads already made by other members. In fact, I hope you will try to create your own MultiPads and share them with other members .

The MultiPads you find on this page are made on the Tyros4 but can be used on several other Yamaha Arranger-Keyboards.

When there is an L in the name of the MultiPads you have to push all the 4 buttons at once and let them start with the SynchroStart for the MultiPads.
