Hello,

I'm working in a psr style to ckf rhythm converter. I need you to try it and tell me how it works on your systems.
If you want to collaborate, please try the program and explain how it works.
You can download the program from: http://perso.wanadoo.es/didacpino2/stytockf.html

Thanks,

Dídac

This is a very cool project. I don't have a Casio to try it out but I am interested to know how well it is handling the conversion.

And I have added it to http://www.synthzone.com/casio.htm

A lot of thanks, Nigel. It will help me a lot.

The conversion cannnot be total, because of some limitations of the casio style format (only five tracks and just note-on note-off messages in the tracks), but they sound great on the ctk-691 I have. One of the main problems I have is drum maps conversion, this is the reason I need the feedback of people using the program.

Thanks again

Dídac

Hi,
I don't actually have a casio, but have you considered trying the program OMB. http://www.1manband.nl/omb.htm

I used to use it for creating midifiles of the psr styles, then use a function in my Technics KN7 ( midi to style ) to create kn styles from the psr midiles.

OMB could be of use, as it allows editing of psr styles. It may give you the opportunity of studying the psr styles more closely .
May also give you a better idea of which tracks are important
ie 9 & 10 are the drum channels
11 is bass
12, 13, are chord channels
14, is pad channel
15 & 16 are melodic lines.

You could also get an idea of how your casio sounds, as OMB is a realtime arranger ie midi it up to your casio, the casio is used as controller & sound module, OMB plays the psr styles.

I used to get the psr drum mapping by downloading the manuals from Yamaha.

Good luck with your venture.

best wishes
Rikki

Thanks, Rikkisbear

I've used Casmedit to get the information. But OMB is a very good program, too.
The problem is that I'm not getting feedback from users of my program and that I haven't much time to develop it.

See you.
