Re: A little MORE of this Sh1t, anyone?

It isn't just parenting, or lack thereof. I think peer pressure and the media play a major role in shaping the behavior of kids (and adults). And there has been a tremendous shift over the years in what is considered to be acceptable, cute, funny, etc. for the media to broadcast.

Re: A bit about SysEx (restored).

I think Cubase is a good DAW to use with Yamaha keyboards, synths, and sound modules. Steinberg is owned by Yamaha, so Cubase comes with instrument patch lists for many of Yamaha's products, as well as an understanding of XG and other Yamaha SysEx commands.

Re: Playing PSR s970 patches from a Roland AX-7 keytar

The options on that menu screen are all preset configurations, so you might want to look in your PSR-S970's Reference Manual to see all of the specific settings which are available, as well as how each of the preset configurations are designed to set each of those settings. Seeing what's different b...

Re: Killer sound from the s970

As far as I know, there are no settings or functions on the keyboard itself that let you layer 3 voices together. However, on a 16-channel multi-timbral keyboard you can layer 3 or more voices together via MIDI. Basically, the idea is to use the keyboard as though it were a separate keyboard control...

Re: Midi message for changing bank - and some frustration

I have not succeeded in the second way doing this. When choosing Bank 1, I have succeeded (or did it happen by default) to let it choose/find the GM bank. I have also succeeded in changing to all different voices (like Celesta) in the voice menu. However, choosing Bank 1, 2, 3, 4, or more (I am pla...

Re: Midi message for changing bank - and some frustration

I assume you mean 'ports' when you say "channels". All messages on the MIDI interface, no matter what channel they're addressed to, have to wait in line to be serially transmitted in the order in which they were generated. Only if they're distributed across multiple ports does the possibi...

Re: Midi message for changing bank - and some frustration

Regarding 384 TPQN, I thought it was a very oddball value when I first saw it used by my PSR-Es, but that was before I discovered that User Songs are recorded and stored internally on the PSR-Es using 128 TPQN! Now that I know that, the 384 TPQN value makes more sense. As for 1920 TPQN, most modern ...

Re: Midi message for changing bank - and some frustration

I think modern Yamaha models (PSR-S and Tyros) generally default to 1920 PPQN. On the other hand, when I record a User Song on my lowly PSR-E models, the keyboard stores my performance using a measly 128 PPQN to help save memory by keeping the delta times small! Then, when the internally-stored User...

Re: Playing PSR s970 patches from a Roland AX-7 keytar

If you're sending just a Bank Select and Program Change without any messages to set other parameters like Reverb Type, Reverb Send Level, Chorus Type, Chorus Send Level, etc., then it should be changing just the voice and leaving all the other settings alone. If it seems to be changing more than jus...

Re: Playing PSR s970 patches from a Roland AX-7 keytar

One thing to be aware of when using one device or software to select a voice (patch, program, etc.) on another device or software is that they might not use the same numbering systems as each other. Within the actual MIDI messages, the values of the Bank Select MSB, LSB, and Program Change numbers a...

Re: Midi message for changing bank - and some frustration

Looks good to me! As far as how to "make" a tick in a DAW, the events are usually displayed with the MIDI times ("delta times" since they indicate the amount of time to wait from one event to the next) conveniently converted into bars-beats-ticks notation. For instance, if a DAW ...
