Put everything into registrations... styles, specific song, and SMFs... and all in the same folder. You don't want to be changing folders while performing and you can enter 999 files into one folder. I use single registrations rather than global, since with single you can go to disc and see what's there, with global you cannot.
I would suggest putting all your favorite "bread and butter" styles, the ones you'll be using all the time, into the first 20, or how many you want, registrations. They're numbered by when they're entered. Then enter whatever specific songs you've arranged and SMFs.
You'll also want to utilize the One Touch feature. It provides 8 Banks each having 10 user assigned voices. You can, for example have Bank 1 loaded with your favorite voices for ballads, foxtrot, etc... Bank 2 with blues voices, and so on.
A cool feature with the SD1 is the ability to include audio clips, up to 15 seconds, with a midi file. Learn how to do this so you can explain it to me.
Dan... that would be a great thing to have up on the youtube site.
