PSR-3000 Styles

240 Preset Styles

ggThe PSR3000/1500, introduced in 2004, are miid-range arranger keyboards, replacing the previous PSR2100/1100 models. While the 2100 was only a minor improvement over the 2000, the 3000 represents a major step forward. It includes many of the preset voices found on the Tyros model as well as the Tyros Mega voices, which provide more realistic voice sounds in the preset styles.

The styles are a significant improvement over the styles in the 2100, which were basically the same as the styles in the 2000, and there are move of them. There are 240 preset styles in the PSR3000 (190 in the PSR1500). The PSR2100 includes 203 preset styles, the PSR2000 had 181 preset styles, and the PSR740 had 160 preset styles.

The 2000 and 2100 allow users to load a style from a floppy disk about as fast as the preset styles. This expanded the available styles to literally thousands of styles, although not all at the same time. A floppy can hold about 30 to 40 styles, so putting a floppy disk in the keyboard gave instant access to the preset styles and the styles on the floppy disk. In addition, the user memory could hold an additional 20 to 30 styles.

The PSR3000 does not have a floppy disk! In its place is a slot for a SmartMedia card, which, with its 16MB capacity, can hold hundreds of additional styles. But even more important, the PSR3000 introduces a USB port that can hold the industry standard USB thumb (or flash) drive. These little devices are common, and relatively inexpensive now, and can hold thousands of styles. And, you can unplug the drive from your PSR3000, take it to your PC, plug it in there, and copy as many styles, or other PSR files, onto it as will fit. This was a really great leap forward. With the PSR3000, a user can have all the styles they may need, instantly available, at the press of a button. This, coupled with the great sounds and styles in the 3000, has made this keyboard very popular not only for home hobbyists, but for professionals as well.

The 240 preset styles delivered with the PSR3000 are listed below. All of the styles in a particular category are listed individually and each category can be downloaded in a single zip file by clicking on the style category title. These styles will play perfectly fine on the Tyros. Since they incorporate the Mega voices in style accompainments, they will not play well on older keyboards as is, but would have to be adjusted to remove the mega voices and to substitute OTS selections that are not available on earlier PSR keyboards.

You can audition a variety of the PSR3000 voices and styles by checking out these Media Clips from Yamaha.

Listed below you will find, literally, thousands of styles that can be played on your PSR-3000 (or PSR-1500) keyboard. Additional PSR-3000 compatible styles can be found in the Gig Disk Section as well as in the Collections and Other Kbd sections. Of course, the easiest way to expand your style library is to order one or more of the PSR Tutorial Style CD-ROMs.

 

Onacimus Conversions for the PSR3000

Overview

I have converted the various PSR model styles for the use with the PSR3000 changing appropriate voices and volume levels to match the styles on the original keyboard. All the styles are in default tempos and have one touch settings (OTS). I was able to get the dance styles of previous model styles sounding well now in the 3000 by making note changes and also velocity changes only for ‘Dance Kit’ with the Edit function of the Style creator mode. Because the DanceKit drum sounds and arrangements of 3k are different from the previous models (Models before TYROS).

I made note of Gary Diamond's lesson on EQ settings and made my settings with slight changes of Gary's EQ suggestion for the PSR3000. My EQ values are:

Setting EQ1 EQ2 EQ3 EQ4 EQ5
Gain value 5 3 1 5 8
Q (bandwidth) 2.5 1.8 1.8 1.8 1.5
Frequency 500Hz 200Hz 900Hz 2.0kHz 10kHz

This setting is applicable to all of my conversions

PSR-3000 Standard Style Collection

The "standard" collection includes the styles from the old, but great, Yamaha models PSR9000, 9000Pro, PSR2000, PSR2100, PSR1500 and CVP 209/210, which have a lot of Sweet!, Cool! and Live! voices. I have also revoiced some regular voices to use the Sweet, cool and live voices. I have included the PSR1500 styles in this collection because the drum arrangements are similar to the older models, particularly the Dance Kit. This collection of styles, although made for PSR3000 users, will also sound good on the TYROS, TYROS2, CVP3&4, and other new models. Because the drum settings, particularly the Dance Kit, are set according to the PSR3000, most of the styles may not sound well in the PSR2000, PSR9000, PSR1500 and earlier models. However, I have made separate collections for the PSR2000 and PSR2100.

(November 2009) I updated this Standard set for PSR 3000 by adding the new S550 styles because these have no Mega voices. The S550 styles have no OTS, so I transferred OTS from the S700 to the appropriate styles. S550 holds a lot of T2 styles. I also added some previous styles because S5 uses a lot of sweet, live, and cool voices and live drum kits (Standard1&2, Brush, Symphony, Cuban and PopLatin kits). Also, S5 uses Cool Bases and Guitars, especially Cool!SlideSteel (DynoSteel1 in 3k) and Cool!SlideClean (Starsphere in 3k) with sliding effects. Finally, I also revoiced some regular voices to sound better in 3k. So, I am sending the entire 11 sets. Please replace the entire sets except Pianist and BCH&Metro folder. I also attached the revised XL file.

(19 June 2017)  I added some PSR-A1000 styles to Standard Style Collection for PSR-3000. This is the Oriental Keyboard released by YAMAHA Corporation on 2001 along with PSR-2000 and PSR-1000. This hold all PSR-1000 preset styles and additional Oriental Styles. I included some styles that have no risk of Oriental voices and drumkits. Also, I remaped some drum notes and made necessary voice changes. Here I included some selected styles in Dance (5 styles) and World (29 styles) categories. These are in SFF1 format.

(June/July 2017) Styles from PSR-A1000 and Ethnic Styles from PSR-S550 added to the World category. 33 Arabic, Iranian, and Khaligi styles from A1000 added to the World category and 24 more Khaligi styles. I also added another 10 Turkish & Greek styles and did some further adjustments in the World styles, which I split into 3 groups. I put all A1000 styles in World2 and World3.

PSR-3000 Mega Style Collection

The Mega style collection tackles the conversion process of styles from later keyboards that contain mega voices (Tyros. Tyros2, PSR-S700/S900, CVP 309/409, and PSR-OR700). Many of the mega voices are available on the PSR-3000, so these conversions will provide 3000 owners with an excellent expansion of their style libraries. It does take some time to complete these conversions, all of which are individually adjusted by onacimus.

PSR-3000 MegaPlus Style Collection

(16 November 2010) Yamaha changed the basic file format with the Tyros3. This new format is continued in the PSR-S910/S710 keyboards and the CVP509 keyboard. Converting these new styles to a format that can be used in the 3000 is much more difficult and does take a bit of time. This new style category is now complete. A listing of the styles and the keyboards they were derived from, is available in this Excel file.

PSR8000 Styles for the PSR3000

To my knowledge, the PSR8000 Keyboard (8K) is the first PSR keyboard that uses standard preset voices (including "Sweet" Voices) and XG voices in the accompaniment styles. The previous models used only General Midi voices.

PSR8000 styles have only two variations, but have four Fill-in's (AA, AB, BB & BA). If we load in "K" models, we will get only AA & BB Fill in along with the main A & B sections. The BA Fill-in appears in the Break section. We won't get the AB fill in, which has great punch that jumps from A section to B section in the PSR8000 and the models before 1999.

I found a remedy to recover the missing AB Fill-in by using Visual Styler © 2000 MojoFlux. Thanks to MojoFlux for that wonderful program. First, I set the keyboard model to PSR9000. Then, I opened a PSR8000 style and made the following conversion.

(First click the mouse in the first column and then click the mouse in the desired Section of the next column. Store the pattern and save in a different area.)

Conversion Pattern
Step0 = SInt, SInt Step8=Intro A, Intro B
Step1=Main A, Main A Step9=Ending A, Ending B
Step2=Fill In BA, Fill In AA Step10=Main B, Main C
Step3= Step11=Fill In AB, Fill In CC
Step4= Step12=Intro B, Intro C
Step5= Step13=Ending B, Ending C
Step6=Fill In AA, Fill In BB Step14=
Step7= Step15=Fill In BB, Fill In DD

The reason why I missed the Main B & D is that, first, I copied the Main A of the 8K style to Main A & B of the destination area and Main B of 8K to Main C & D of destination. If we play in any "K" models, the A and C section plays properly, but the B & D sections produce different sound (Dis-Chord). So I sought the help of The Style Creator function in my Keyboard. In the Basic mode I checked the pattern length of Main A and changed the length of Main B accordingly also in Main C to Main D. If we leave Main B & D as blank, the Fill in Pattern BB (AA) and DD (BB) will be silent during style play back. Then, I went to the assembling mode in the Style Creator function and copied the contents of A & C to B & D. The Ending A in 'K' models ends with Auto Fill in. So I copied Intro, Ending A to B and B to C. Here, I skipped the break section. Thus, I made 8k Styles as 4V styles. All the styles are unique to 8k. Most of the styles are very similar to PSR 740 and PSR 730, but are outstanding. All the styles are in default tempos and have OTS. Here I made volume adjustments and voice changes (to XG/GM voices).

239 PSR8000 Styles to PSR3000 (Updated 12/12/09) *
Ballad (28) Ballroom (24) Country (18) Dance (42) Latin (25)
PopRock (40) RhyBlues (16) SwingJazz (18) World (22) Pianist (7)

* I have updated these styles by revoicing many voices to the Sweet, Live & Cool voices. I also did a lot of leveling and remapping of the drums. This style set should work well on the 3000 as well as the later keyboards (Tyros1,2,3 and PSR-S900, PSR-S910).

PSR9000 and 9000Pro Styles for the PSR3000

(10/19/06) Here I changed the velocity of individual drums, especially in dance kits. One day, I happened to view and play PSR9000 (9K) for one hour. Most of the styles use StyleLiveStandardKit (127-000-123) and StyleLiveFunkKit (127-000-124). I found that the drum kit with prg number 123 is the same as StdKit1 of 3K and 124 is same as StdKit2 of 3K. In my previous conversions, I changed all the drum voices to StdKit1. But now styles with prg no. 124 have been changed to StdKit2 in 3K. Now, all the styles sound very good. Also, in 9K Preset Panel Styles there are 10 additional styles. 5 Metronome and 5 BassChordHold in the Ballroom section. I added these in a separate folder.

9000PRO Styles for the PSR3000

(10/19/06) YAMAHA introduced an upgraded version of the PSR9000 as the 9000Pro in 2000. I do not know about the special features. But I noted that there are additional new voices (not in 9K) such as Live!Piano, AlohaGuitar, CarlosGtr, Live!Acro(Allegro), Sweet!MuteTrp, Sweet!Flugel, Live!Horns(HyperBrs), Live!Brass(PopBrass), Live!OctBrs and some additional voices not in 3k. Also 8 additional DrumKit voices including PopLainKit and CubanKit.

I viewed all the styles through Michael's MIDI Player Program. Then I made changes in tracks as well as in OTS acordingly. Here I revoiced the rhy tracks with Prg no 80/83/123/125 (LiveStyStd+P) to StdKit1 of 3k; 81/84/124/126 (LiveStyFunk+P) to StdKit2 of 3k; 82/85 (LiveBrush+P) to BrushKit of 3k. Also Styles like Beguine, Bolero, Mambo, Rumba, etc ere with PopLatin & Cuban Kits.

All the styles are same as 9k. Differentiations are made by the additional standard voices of 9kPro. But there are two aditional unique styles in S&J category, 'JazzSinger and 'VocalSwing'. They use Live!Vocal (000-114-053) I revoiced to Live!Gospel of 3k.

* I have already sent PSR9000 styles for the 3k, but this set is different. I revoiced the voices to the standard of PSR 9000PRO with Sweet, Live & Cool voices. I also did some drum leveling and remapping. This set should also work well on later models (TYROS1, 2, 3, S900, and S910).

PSR2000/2100 Styles for the PSR3000

I have completed the conversions of the PSR2000 & PSR2100 Styles for the PSR3000. There are 209 Styles (181 Panel + 28 Floppy) in 2000 and 203 styles in 2100 conversions. Here, I changed the drum kit voices of Rhythm tracks as StyleStantardKit to StantardKit1 and StyleBrushKit to BrushKit.

In the PSR2000 conversion, I changed voices in accompaniment tracks as well as in OTS to GM-NylonGuitar, XG-MellowGuitar (for JazzGuitar), XG-Mandolin, etc in order to produce sounds similar to the PSR2000 voices. All the styles are in Basic, Pro, Session and PianoComboformats.

CVP209/210 Styles for the PSR3000

In addition to PSR2000 and PSR2100 styles for the PSR3000 conversions, I have converted the additional styles from CVP209 styles, that is, styles that are not in the PSR2000 and PSR2100. I have also included some Latin styles that are already provided in the PSR2000 (Bolero, Mambo, Rumba, Salas, etc) because they use the 'CubanKit' and 'PopLatinKit'. All together, I have converted 140 additional styles.

In the zip files here, I included PopRock & Ballad in a single category called Pop&Ballad. Latin and Ballroom are both included in the Latin category.

* I have converted all CVP 210 styles for 3k and other similar models because models like the 9000, CVP 209, 210 and TYROS1 use lots of live percussion kits. The top ones are Live Standard, Live Funk and Live Brush kit. The same sound of Live Standard kit of the above models are given as StandardKit1 of 3k and later models including the Tyris2. Similarly, LiveFunkKit sounds the same as StandardKit2, LiveBrushKit as BrushKit, and Cuban and PopLatinKit. All these styles sound good in my 3k and should also work well in later models.

 

PSR740 and PSR730 Styles for the PSR3000

I have completed the PSR740 conversions for the PSR3000. I added the OTS as I noted from each of the internal styles of the 740. All the styles are now in the default tempo setting. Some of the voices of previous models are missing in the PSR3000, so I replaced them with similar voices (with similar sound) e.g.: NylonGuitar2 from XG/GM section for SpanishGuitar, MellowGuitar from XG/GM for JazzGuitar (Regular). Some voices are the same but have a different name. e.g. SlapGuitar in 740 is the DeepChorus in the PSR3000. I was able to get the dance styles sounding well now in the 3000 by making note changes with the Edit function of the Style creator mode. I did not have to change the voices of the Rhythm tracks, but I did made volume adjustments here and also in other tracks where necessary. I named some of the styles as Basic (.bcs), Pro (.prs) and Pianist (.pst) in Pianist section.

The reason for changing the voices to GM/XG in 740 conversion is that some of the voices of old models (PSR740, PSR9000, PSR2000) are missing in the PSR3000. AcoGrandPiano (000-112-000/001) is brighter than LivePiano (000-113-000/001) that sounds similar in XG/GM section (000-000-000/001). The sound of SpanishGuitar in old models is absent in PSR3000 panel voices, but I found a similar sound in the XG/GM section, the NylonGuitar2. So I made voice changes accordingly. Also, JazzGuitar is similar to MelowGuitar of XG/GM.

I made note of Gary Diamond's lesson on EQ settings and made my settings with slight changes of Gary's EQ suggestion for the PSR3000. My EQ values are:

  EQ1 EQ2 EQ3 EQ4 EQ5
Gain value 5 3 1 5 8
Q(bandwidth Styles 2.5 1.8 1.8 1.8 1.5
Frequency 500Hz 200Hz 900Hz 2.0KHz 10kHz

After setting the EQ, I then made necessary volume adjustmets in each tracks of all styles.

I categorised all 170 Styles as [01]Pop&Rock, [02]Ballad, [03]Dance, [04]Swing&Jazz, [05]R&B, [06]Country, [07]Latin, [08]Ballroom, [09]World and [10]Pianist.

PSR-730 4-variation Styles for the PSR3000

(3 March 2010) I have completed the PSR730 4-variation styles for the PSR-3000 and later keyboards. In these conversions, I balanced the volume levels, added DSP effects, changed many GM voices to Panel voices (according to the standard of 730) and other XG voices that sound better. I also added OTS (as per each 730 & 530 styles) by taking notes from each keyboard's preset styles. But I changed some similar voices. I used only one extraordinary voice (Sweet Trumpet) in style tracks as well as OTS, because PSR 730 uses Sweet Trumpet. The conversion methodology is similar to the 8000 style conversions. All 112 styles are in 9 categories.

PSR1700 and PSR620 Styles for the PSR3000

These XG styles are from my old favorite PSR700 and PSR620. I made these like the PSR8000 conversions using Visual Styler. PSR1700 has Intro and Ending A & B, but PSR620 has only B. So I copied A from the PSR7000 styles, which are similar to each of the 620 styles. All these styles were originally in GM voices. To sound better, I have changed some voices to YAMAHA XG voices. These are usable in PSR3000 but they can also be used in the Tyros, Tyros2, 9000, 2100, 2000, 1500, 1100 & 1000. These styles have Intros B & C, Endings B & C and have 4 Variations. - OS

Standard Styles for the PSR-1500

(30 October 2011) Back in 2007, Onacimus did a number of conversions from various Yamaha keyboards specifically for use on the PSR-2000 and the PSR-2100. He also provided a similar set of conversions for the PSR-1500. We do not have a page specifically for PSR-1500 owners and this set was not added to the PSR Tutorial at that time. I have "rediscovered" these conversions and am adding them to this PSR-3000 styles page. --Joe Waters

(9/20/07) I made these collections of styles from the PSR9000, 9000Pro, PSR2100, PSR1500, CVP210, CVP307 and the PSR740 floppy disk for the benifit of PSR-1500 owners. I thoroughly checked the 21k styles and selected various styles with a similar from the above models, which have no Mega Voices. I selected many styles from PSR 9000 and 9000Pro that are not in the 21k and also slightly different from the 21k styles. I've collected all new CVP 210 additional styles and also the new PSR1500 styles. In addition to that, I've added the 740 floppy styles that have four variations and also Break Fill in. I copied the Intros and Endings B to C and filled the missed section (B) from PSR8000.

I brought all of these together in one large collection. I made voice changes in tracks as well as in OTS to stantard panel voices acording to the availablity of PSR-1500 voices. I also made volume adjustments as needed. Very interestingly, many styles appear as 'Session' and 'Piano Compo' as in CVP and PSR-1500. Finally, I arranged them into 10 categories (BassCHold and Metronone styles were put in the Ballroom category). novie&Show 16 Entertainer 6 B&C 10

Henni's Favorite PSR3000 Styles

Below are 300+ of Henni's absolute most favourite styles tweaked to the best of his abilities for my PSR3K. (Note: I've regrouped the 315 files into a number of categories to limit the size of each of the zip files. Note that, in addition to the styles listed below, you will find many more styles from Henni's collections on Henni's Collections Page for PSR-3000 owners. These also work very well for keyboard introduced after the PSR-3000.. - JW)

Henni's Tyros 3 Onboard Styles Converted for PSR3K

(9 January 2009) These are converted Tyros 3 onboard styles, tweaked very heavily. I've transposed all the bass voices, added proper voices to all bass voices, changed volume settings and voices used for many, many other voices and changed drum volumes for all styles. Converting the styles is actually a lot of work. Some convert more or less o.k. with Jorgens version 2, others with version 4. Then I rescale the bass voices, tweak the other voices, volumes and find the correct guitars, which is the most difficult part. I'm sure others can improve on these results, but, hopefully, these will give you a good start on your own tweaking. (Update: 1/9/09 -- all the OTS settings have now been assigned correctly; newer versions have been added for Tyros 3 unique styles)
