S950 Swing&Jazz - Country Styles

Here's what Yamaha says about the S950 styles:

Playing a Style is like being the conductor of a band that always plays the chord and arrangement you tell them to play. The new PSR-S950 has a huge set of 408 built-in dynamic Styles. Yamaha Styles are created by the world's best programmers and mixed by professional studio engineers to ensure unparalleled quality.

Audio Styles

Audio Styles take one step further by adding an audio recording of studio drummers, percussionists and percussion ensembles playing in various recording studios from around the world. This adds the natural feel, ambience and warmth to the drum and percussion parts of the Style, giving your performance greater expressive potential. Yamaha Time Stretch Technology allows the audio to follow your tempo changes without changing pitch, so everything stays in perfect sync.

Guitar-Enhanced Styles with Mega Voices

Guitar-Enhanced Styles not only reproduce the sound of guitar playing, they reproduce the actual chord voicings used by guitar players. This adds to the overall realism of the Style.

For a description of all the features in the new S950, visit the PSR-S950 page at Yamaha US.

The table below lists all of the styles in the PSR-S950 and PSR-S750 (the number in parentheses by each style category is the number of S750 styles). Styles highlighted by a blue font are not available in the S750. A bold blue font indicates one of the new "audio" styles. There are a total of 98 styles in the S950 that are not available in the S750. Styles highlighted by a red font are in the S750, but not included in the S950. There are 15 such S750-unique styles. The numbers following the style name are the default tempo and the time signature.

Hammer's Styles/Registrations for the PSR-950/S750

Gig Disk Styles

(18 November 2012) Here are five sets of gig disks for the PSR-S950: (1) 20s and 30s song styles; (2) 50's song styles; (3) All country song styles; (4) All upbeat song styles; (5) PSR3000 setups for the S950 (I used these for years with my PSR3000 gigs). All these have OTS settings and should be playable on the S950 as is. There will be several more of these. There are duplications between the folders because these are the lists I use for gigs and some songs are in several folders.

Tyros 4 Styles

(4 January 2013) Here are some Tyros 4 styles setup to play on the S950. Not all Tyros 4 styles will play on the S950 due to voices on the T4 not found on the S950. I eliminated those styles and added or changed the OTS voices to fit the S950. I will do more as time allows.

S950 Registrations

(1 February 2013) Here is a set of 3 registrations for the S950. Each bank contains 8 "song specific" setups. There are 24 songs total in the set.

S950_Registrations.zip

Note: you will find these and other style sets from Deane Peters on Hammer's Gig Disk Page.

Other Styles for the PSR-S950/S750

All of the styles that are available for the earlier Yamaha arranger keyboard can be played in the new PSR-S950 and PSR-S750. The new keyboard uses the style format introduced with the Tyros3 and used in the S910 and the Tyros4 so styles from these keyboards can also be used in the S950. Of course, Tyros styles have three right-hand voices and the Right3 voice will be ignored by the S950. Tyros4 styles may also use OTS voices that are unique to that keyboard and these voices would have to be replaced with suitable alternatives when used in the S950 and S750. All of the earlier SFF1 format styles should play just fine.
