This collection includes nearly 12,000 unique styles for Yamaha midrange and top level arranger keyboards. The styles in this collection were added to the PSR Tutorial web site or the PSR Tutorial forum over the past year or so. 60% of the styles are in the latest Yamaha style file format (SFF2); 4,800 styles are in the earlier style file format (SFF1). Recent mid-range keyboards (PSR-S710/S910, PSR-S750/S950, PSR-S770/S970, PSR-S975, and PSR-SX700/SX900) and top-level keyboards (Tyros3, Tyros4, Tyros5, and Genos) use the newer SFF2 format but can also load the earlier SFF1 format styles.

Style sets in this collection are organized in a series of folders and subfolders. A brief description of the major folders is provided below.

Chris T5 Catalog - 878 styles collected by Chris Easdown and tuned for his Tyros5 and listed by the standard category subfolders.

Song Styles - This folder has four sets of song styles. These are styles that are adjusted or tuned to go with a particular song and are saved under that song name. Our Styles #7 was specifically for song styles and included over 10,000 song styles in addition to registrations and Music Finder databases. Later collections provided additional song styles: Styles #9 (1,800 song styles); Styles #12 (786 song styles); Styles #14 (372 song styles).

This collection, Styles #15, 1,975 new song styles to our library. These song styles are provided in four large sets drawn provided from PSR Tutorial Forum member postings. I have reviewed these sets to remove any duplicates within the new sets as well as any duplicates with song styles in earlier style collections. There are, of course, duplicates where the same style may have been used for different songs. But there are no duplicates in the styles provieded for any particular song name.

  1. Song Styles (ed mc) - Ed gives us 307 styles named after the song they are tuned for. Six styles are SFF1 and all the rest are SFF2. All but six include OTS. Songs are listed in 6 alphabetical subfolders: A-B, C-F, G-L, M-R, S-Z.
  2. Song Styles (Thomas 750) - Thomas regularly posts styles, registrations, and midi files that are to a particular song book. I have extracted the styles from the many book postings and eliminated all the duplicates. That still left 694 styles that could be added to our collection. 499 styles are SFF1 while 198 are SFF2. 570 styles include OTS. Songs are listed in 10 alphabetical subfolders: A-B, C-D, E-G, H-I, J-L, M-N, O-R, S, T-V, and W-Z.
  3. Song Styles (xeenix) - Peter provides 877 styles named after the song the style was tuned for. All have OTS and are SFF2. Songs are listed in 10 alphabetical subfolders: A-B, C-D, E-G, H-I, J-L, M-N, O-R, S, T-V, and W-Z.
  4. Song Styles (xmas) - Peter is also the source of this collection of 100 Christmas styles, all with OTS and in SFF2.

Xeenix CVP-809 - this folder has 30 CVP809 styles that xeenix has converted for use on the Tyros5. Additional CVP809 styles are available in Styles #14.

Yamaha - This folder has two subfolders with the original preset styles from two Yamaha keyboards. - PSR-S550 (176 styles, no OTS) - PSR-SX600 (415 styles, SFF2, OTS)
