What is OpenText


OpenText is a tool that displays a pdf file, or a page in a pdf book, when a registration is selected on a Yamaha keyboard.


  • Supports up to 10,000 individual song files or a similar number of pages in each of 12 Song Books.
  • Song Files display in a single window as multiple tabs. Song book pages display in a single window. There is no need to clear the screen or fiddle with PC controls.
  • OpenText uses free PDF readers to view files.
  • Original files are not modified.
  • Works with all recent PSR/CVP/Tyros/Genos/PSR-SX instruments and Windows based computers.

How it works

Normally, selecting a registration does not send any identifying messages to the PC, so there is no way for the PC to respond to a specific change in the instrument setup.

OpenText works around this limitation by creating a special midi song file that, when loaded by depressing the registration button, sends a message which triggers the display of an individual pdf file or a page from a song book on the PC screen.
