Tutorials.

Unread post by Rattler »

Hi !.. Having owned a Tyros 5 some while ago, then a Nord Piano !, I have now moved back to Yamaha in the shape of an sx900 .. which I an enjoying !.
BUT, I could really do with access to some Tutorials to shortcut my way back into my 900.
The ones I have seen on the Yamaha site and Youtube are ok but insufficient in many ways .. and as usual i find difficulty translating the Owners Manual and Reference Manual !
So my question is, are there any different sx 900 Tutorial to be had ?. Or will there be any soon.
I would appreciate any help in this.
Thanks for having me on your forum.

Alan.

Welcome, Rattler!

I don't think I've seen any tutorial videos for the PSR-SX models yet, at least not what I'd call tutorials-- more like demos and advertisements.

Hopefully some of the PSR-SX owners will start putting some actual tutorial videos together.

Or were you talking about something from Yamaha? Yamaha doesn't seem to do many, if any at all, training or tutorial videos the way some of the other keyboard companies do.

Welcome to the forums Rattler :)

It's fairly early days for the PSR-SX900. Some parts of the world still have not seen it in stock at their dealers.

I would guess that most people who own one who would be likely to make a tutorial video will still be spending time going through all the features and functions before uploading something worthwhile.

It is certainly a very interesting keyboard and has garnered a lot more interest than many past PSR releases. Probably in part due to its association with Genos although from what I have seen I would say it has far more in common with previous PSR's than Genos?

Both Manuals are typically Useless for information on use with a computer/DAW

Your best option is to set Logic to receive midi on 16 Tracks, allocating channels 1-16.

Set the SX900 to send midi on those channels.

<PLAY> the songs on the SX and Record the 16 Tracks in Logic.

THIS should record the instruments 1-4, the Chords or whatever 5-8 and the Style content 9-16

You can then edit the midi in Logic.

When you PLAY the track back in Logic, it should sound through the SX900 exactly as if the SX had played it.

This should work either via USB, OR the DIN-Midi connections, if you are Using a Midi Interface.

(I don't have a PSR and have never used one . . . .)

Not sure if I'm misreading what you're asking here, but an mp3 file doesn't contain any MIDI data, it's just a compressed wav file, i.e. audio.
You can't modify this track by track.

Or have I misunderstood?

I think he might just be calling it by the wrong name? That is, from what he's said, it does contain MIDI tracks, in which case it must be a MIDI file, and not an MP3 file. But I could be wrong. :)

HI

the multi midi sequencer on the PSR-SX900 will create a STANDARD MIDI FILE ( not an Mp3 ) forgive me
and this when imported into LOGIC PRO X will create the 9 -16 channels of the song....
