Hello. Could you explain your needs with more detail ? What are you trying to obtain ?
Generally speaking, you can tweak / modify a Yamaha standard performance, just press "SAVE" and have a new performance.
What do you exactly mean with "style" ?
May be you would like "Motif XF Performance" free library: try to download from
https://it.yamaha.com/it/products/music ... loads.html

Good luck

Hi,

The best way to learn is to find performances that you like in the presets and then experiment in changing things to see how the sound is affected.

There are plenty of free sounds being shared over at Yamaha's Sound Mondo

Or there is Yamaha's own shop for paid for expansions.

Or Easy Sounds libraries are pretty good

Hi.thank You for respond.I generally looking for performances made as standard styles on keyboard with drums,bass and separate right voices section .I like to play popuuar songs but is really difficult for me to create performances to play songs.i did a fef but they not sound good as performances created by experienced musicians.Previously i had yamaha psr s 670 with ready accompaniaments and styles on board but on that instrument sounds are very basics and when i heard proper synthesizer on live i decided i need to have one :-) .I play in home for myself only,i loaded performances from soundomindo but mostly they are created to play in band,without percussion and bass.When i play in home is easier to have ready performances where you can play by left hand chords with bass and percussion and play solo by right hand.

Hello again Suchy.
May be an "arranger" keyboard will better meet your needs.
Have a look at Yamaha Genos. Just google "yamaha genos" and follow the links.
Good luck.

Hi.Thank You for samples.I try to load and play today.
Yamaha montage is over my budget.Modx wad top of my financial limit.I not play professionally,just in home for pleasure.I think maybe is godcidea to sell my psr s 670 and purchase tyros 2 for styles. Is in god price.Than i have god keyboard for sounds and tyros for backing.

Hi Suchy.

If your just after styles your PRS670 should be able to play all the current range of style that Yamaha produces and there are millions of them about
so a Tyros 2 would in my opinion be a backward step unless you need after touch ?, The Modx is a great Synth but with a big learning curve if like me you have been used to an arranger keyboard in the past , but I love a challenge,

All the best, George
