Thanks to Charley [rattley] for sharing his SD1 conversions with us.  I've reproduced Charley's comments from the psrtutorial forum below.

Charley's Conversions - 217 Styles

Well, everyone, here is my contribution to this great group!  I have converted a number of SD1 styles for use with a PSR2000.  These were already converted SD1 to PSR9000 styles I had downloaded some time ago. I used Michael Bedesem's PSR MidiPlayer and XGworks to convert them for the 2K. I also added OTS.

Something to note on these and all SD1 styles -- Be sure to check out the intro and ending variations. Unlike most of the Yamaha styles I have tried, the C variation isn't necessarily the longest or most complex. Some of the A variations are better than the B or C. Check 'em out!

I look forward to sharing more with this fine group. It feels good to give back when you take so much! My favorite thing about my PSR2000 is that since buying it in February, I have downloaded a steady collection of styles. Groups like this have made it possible to feel like you have a new keyboard each time you play it. No boredom here, I've played my 2K everyday since I got it. That's 3+ months.  I can't say that about any other piece of gear I have owned. Keeping it fresh is the key!  Many thanks to everyone here who has helped me so much.

93 More Conversions

(7/26/03) Charley sent me four additional "disks" of SD1 conversions in July.  However, I assumed many of these were the same as we already had and pulled out only the "new" conversions and added them to the Misc zip file above.  However, Charley assures me that these are all really "different" arrangements even if the name may be the same.  So, below are the additional SD1 conversions provided by Charley.  There are four zip files (for four disks) with the styles arranged alphabetically.
