(28 August 2020) I have started another Styles Archive -- "Next Generation First Level Styles Archive (NGFLS)" similar to the Classic Standard Styles Archive.
Next Generation First Level includes SFF1 styles of TYROS, CVP-309, PSR-3000, PSR-S700 and PSR-S550.
These (except PSR-S550) commonly have basic Mega Voices, first introduced in the TYROS in 2002. They are Mega!Steel guitar Mega!12StringGuitar Mega!HiStringGuitar Mega!Clean Guitar Mega!Overdrive Mega!Distrotion Mega!Aco.Bass Mega!Elec.Bass Mega!PickBass Mega!Fretless and related Live!, Cool! and regular voices.
TYROS and CVP-309 include many more featured and regular voices including additional SynthBass, SynthBrass, SynthPad and SynthLead voices. Mostly all voices are included in PSR-S910, S750, S950 although Theatre Organ voices are limited in S910 and S750.
Many TYROS voices are limited in PSR-3000, for example Cool!JazzSoloGtr, Live!Humming, Live!Mmh, Live!SymphonyHorns, Live!SaxAppeal, BalladSection, Moonlight and additional Synth voices. I replaced the missing voices with Cool!JazzGuitar, Live!Gospel, Live!FrenchHorn, Live!SaxSection and related other voices.
In PSR-S900 and PSR-S710 the following TYROS Voices are included (not in PSR-3000 or PSR-S700) StereoClavi, Suspense(Vibes&Flutes), PunchyBass, TBBass, BalladBrass(BalladSection), SaxyMood, SaxAppeal, Moonlight, FluteEnsemble, BrightOber, Messanger, MellowPad, Sirus.
|Missing Voices||Assigned Voices|
In PSR-S700 some PSR-3000 and S900 voices are limited. The table shows the reassignments for these missing voices.
I am going to make 3 sets of collections in this archive.
- Top Model Styles
- Midrange Styles
- Next Generation Standard Styles.
I am doing all these convertions in my PSR-3000. So all will be SFF1 styles.
1. Top Model Styles
Here I selected TYROS (2002) and CVP-309 (2004). Both have the same voice setup. CVP-309 has additional Clavinova voices as usual. They have new additional voices than PSR-9000PRO and CVP-210 in all categories. The new voices (including Mega Voices and other Featured Voices) are added in earlier Next Generation Midrange Keyboards (PSR-3000, PSR-S900, PSR-S700) and PSR-S710 (New Generation Basic Model) with limitations as mentioned above. But mostly all voices are included in New Generation PSR Models (PSR-S910 and later).
I combined TYROS and CVP-309 Styles in one collection. Basically I selected all TYROS Styles and added CVP-309 new and different styles by avoiding duplicates. I changed GM and Clavinova voices to related Panel Voices in Tracks as well as OTS. And further I divided this collection into 2 stages.
Stage1 - For Stage1, I did not make many voice changes. These styles are for all Next and New Generation Top Model Keyboards (Tyros 1-5, Genos) and New Generation PSR Midrange Models (PSR-S910, S950, S750, S970, S770, S975, S775, SX900, SX700 and SX600).
Stage 2 - Stage 2 is only for Next Generation PSR Midrange Keyboards (PSR-3000, S900, S700) and one New Generation Midrange (PSR-S710). PSR-S900 and PSR-S710 have a certain level of voice limitation; PSR-3000 has further voice limitations and PSR-S700 has more voice limitation than PSR-3K as mentioned above. I made this stage for the PSR-3000. The PSR-S900/S710 and PSR-S700 models can use most of the PSR-3000 conversions, but some additional styles are added in separate folders in each category. These additional styles use reassigned voices available on these keyboards.
(Sept 24) - I am updating NGFLK Top Model Styles Stage 1 by correcting the Multipads in OTS like Midrange Styles. Updated categories will be placed in the table below as they are completed and noted with an "(UD)" at the end of the name.
Sept 25 - Ballad and Dance updated; Sept 26 - Swing&Jazz updated; Sept 27 - R&B updated; Sept 28 - Country updated; Sept 29 - Latin, Ballroom updated; Sept 30 - Movie&Show, Entertainer, Ballroom; Oct 2 - World and Pianist updated. Update now complete.
2. Midrange Styles
This set includes styles of PSR-3000, PSR-S700 and PSR-S900. Basically, I selected all 3K Styles and added new and different styles of PSR-S700 and then S900 by avoiding duplicates. I reworked styles by upgrading the voices converting GM voices to Panel Voices and some Regular Voices to Featured Voices.
I made each category of styles in 2 sets. One set is for fhe PSR-3000 ( also applicable for all Midrange and Top Models). I changed StandardKit1 to StudioKit wherever applicable and voices are allotted in tracks and OTS upto the grade of the PSR-3000. The second set is exclusive for the PSR-S700.
(23 Sept) I have now updated all the style categories in the NGFLK MidRnge series. The reason for this updation was because PSR-3000 Preset Styles OTS have Multipad selection (that work only for Preset Styles). If other models Preset Styles are selected, OTS displays R1, R2, L voices with their settings. But only "Live!Kit1" (PowerKit1 in later keyboards) Multipad is displayed for external Styles. But after S Series Keyboards, OTS displays the assigned Multipads even for other external Styles. Some 3K Multipads are given as same in later Keyboards, some are given different names, some are given as PowerKit1 or other Pads, that do not match. I found this difference by checking in my PSR- S970.
I programmed all 40 3K Multipads in OTS with different New Styles (4 Multipads in each style OTS) in 3K and checked in S970. With this I prepared a chart "Multipads PSR-3000 VS PSR-S970". When some Multipads display PowerKit1 or Matchless, I changed according to their nature. I took notes and reworked in my PSR-3000.
3. Standard Styles
(12 Sept 2020) I started work on the NGFLKS Standard styles. This set includes the complete preset Styles of the PSR- S550, the only Next Generation Keyboard without Mega Voices. But the PSR-S550 has many featured voices like the PSR-3000 and the PSR- S700. Basically, these styles have no OTS. These styles have DSP effects that work only in old Junior Keyboards (PSR-640, PSR-1000, PSR-1100). But the DSP effects are disabled while we play in Midrange Keyboards. From PSR-1500 onwards DSP effects for Styles are given as Midrange Keyboard Styles. So I applied DSP Effects and OTS with reffering PSR-3000 and PSR-S700 Styles. Also I applied Icons for each Styles.
Here also I did this set in 2 sets. One for the PSR-3000 (also for later Midrange and all Top Models). In this set I upgraded the voices to the standard of the PSR-3000. The second set is exclusively for PSR-S700. Here I edited the voices according to the availability of this Keyboard. Categories will be added as they are available. In Dance there are some new styles not in PSR-3000 and PSR-S700 (ClubBeat, FunkyHouse, MellowHipHop,...) These are available in PSR-S710. Based on these styles, I applied OTS and DSP effects.
