    Preparation... Make as many registrations as you need and store them in

    the [REGISTRATION MEMORY] buttons. You can store up to eight registrations in one bank, although you do not need to use all eight. When you have stored as many registrations as you require, return to the MAIN display page using the [EXIT] button

    Saving A Bank of Registrations 1) Press button [J] REGISTRATION BANK at the side of the

    side of the screen.

    This will take you to the REGISTRATION BANK (USER) screen. When your instrument is new this screen is usually empty, but dont be alarmed if some files or folders are already displayed. Simply ignore these for the time being. (If you dont see the display screen illustrated, press VIEW)

    2) Press button [6] SAVE below the display screen. 3) A text box appears at the bottom of the screen. Use the

    letters and numbers provided to give your bank of registrations a name.

    4) Press [OK]

    Yamahas Cut & Paste system... Have you ever kept a scrapbook where you cut your favourite items out of magazines and newspapers and paste them into your own personal book. .? Moving your registration, song, multi-pad, style, custom and organ voice files around Yamahas new instruments works in just the same way... you cut your favourite files from a floppy disk and - treating the instruments memory like a scrapbook - paste them onto a new page. You can even move files from another page of the scrapbook to another. Follow the examples below for cutting, pasting and moving REGISTRATIONS to see how this works...

    Tip:

    I save a separate bank (set) of registrations for each tune I play even if I dont actually use all eight registrations available. This way its easy to sort and keep track of FILES - as each can be given the name of the tune the registrations are created for...

  • 5) Your bank of registrations appears as a FILE in the display screen. A file is denoted by the pen & paper icon.

    Once your registration bank FILE appears in the display it is safe and you can switch off the instrument without fear of losing the registrations you created. Why use a FILE not a FOLDER You now have one bank (set) of registrations on your display screen. Of course, it is easy to find (because theres only one). Imagine a time when you have saved lots of registration banks and your display screen is filled with page after page of registration FILES. At this point it makes sense to sort through all your registration banks - maybe bundling all those with a similar theme together. Perhaps youve created several registrations for your favourite film themes. At the moment these will be mixed up with all the others - and because they are displayed on the screen in alphabetical order, Aladdin will appear on page 1 whilst Zorbas Dance may be on page 20.

    Bundling FILES together in a FOLDER On the right is an illustration of two pages of registration files Ive created. Youll see that some of the titles are film themes, some dance tunes, and others are songs made famous by the Carpenters All together I have eighteen registration files. Not a huge amount - but enough to begin to make life confusing.

    Creating a FOLDER To ease the situation, I can gather all the Film Themes together and put them in a FOLDER. 1) Press button [7] NEW under the display screen. The buttons

    icon shows a FOLDER such as you would find in a standard filing cabinet - and thats exactly the function it provides.

    2) As Im going to use this folder to keep my film themes together I name the FOLDER FILM MUSIC.

    3) Press [OK] 4) The FOLDER I have created appears at the top of the display.

    FOLDERS always take priority over FILES (i.e. a FOLDER name beginning with Z will appear before a FILE name beginning with A ).

    A folder is denoted by a. folder icon.

  • 1) Press button [2] CUT under the display screen. A prompt box appears asking you to Select the files you want to cut to the clipboard. The clipboard is a short-term memory area of the keyboard where items such as registration files / folders can be held until you decide where to put them. You cant store anything in the clipboard area whilst the instrument is switched off. 2) Highlight all the registration bank FILES you want to put in the

    FILM MUSIC FOLDER. You can highlight as many as you like - over as many pages as you like.

    3) Press [OK]. The titles you highlighted fade slightly

    Moving the selected FILES to a FOLDER 4) Next I press button [A] to open the FILM MUSIC

    FOLDER. Dont worry if the screen goes blank and you appear to have lost all your FILES... you havent. You are inside the FILM MUSIC FOLDER - and, until you put something in there, it is empty. Just to remind you where you are, a little FOLDER icon is displayed together with its title at the bottom of the screen. 5) Press button [4] PASTE below the display ... 6) All the files you gathered together are now pasted onto the blank page. Now you have all your film music in one place

    - inside the FILM MUSIC FOLDER.

    7) Press button [8] UP. Now youre back outside the FOLDER again. Youll see that the FILES you cut have

  • disappeared but dont worry - they are safe inside the FILM MUSIC FOLDER. I performed the same procedure twice more. The first was to create a FOLDER titled DANCE into which I placed the six registration bank FILES Anniversary Waltz ; Jealousy Tango ; St. Bernards Waltz ; Tea For Two (Cha-Cha) ; The Last Waltz and Veleta. This tidied up the display quite well - leaving just three FILES Close To You ; Sing and Top Of The World. These are all songs made famous by the Carpenters - so I created a FOLDER named CARPENTERS and transferred the three remaining files into it. Now my screen shows just three categories of music - but when I enter a FOLDER Ill still find all the individual registration bank FILES inside. So - you can see that this system is just an electronic filing cabinet and, once you get the hang of it, youll find it very easy to move and manage all your registration settings.

    It ALL works the same way For me, the beauty of the system is that it all works the same way SONG FILES can be grouped together in related categories, as can styles, custom voices, multi-pads and organ flute settings. Once youve grasped the method you can apply it to virtually every part of the keyboard.

    Using ICONS to personalise your FILE name Youll have noticed that each FILE name has an icon (picture) beside it. The default setting for this is a picture of a pen & paper. Until now I have not suggested that we change this icon - simply because wanted to avoid any unnecessary confusion. Until now all the FILES have looked the same - but you can customise the icon to suit the mood of the registration - or to illustrate which instrument sounds have been used.

  • Folders also have an icon - but this can not be changed, so a folder will always look like a folder (which is just as well really.

    Selecting an ICON to personalise your FILE name 1) Ive created a bank (set) of registrations for the Christmas novelty tune - Sleigh Ride

    and saved it as a FILE in my REGISTRATION BANK USER page - using the procedure we covered earlier.

    2) Press button [1] NAME under the display screen. A prompt box asks me to select the FILE to be named. I highlight the file Sleigh Ride and press [OK] The NAME text box appears with Sleigh Ride already entered as the title. I dont need to change this (but you could if you wanted) because I dont need a new name for my registrations. Im interested in the box marked ICON. 3) Press button [1] ICON.
