Just a simple poll... It would be interesting to see what each of us thinks we use, percentage-wise, of the original ROM styles that came with your arranger, and what are anything else... Like 3rd party, original, heavily edited, translations, etc., etc..

Just basically ROM to the rest...

It perhaps would help illustrate whether there is much need beyond the original, or whether third party support, translations, etc., are very important or not.
An arranger is just a tool. What matters is what you build with it..!

i actually use about 70% orf them but thats purely because i like to remix songs using differnt styles

#261053 - 04/05/09 02:43 AM Re: What percentage ROM styles do you use?

I use probably 40 to 50 of the onboard styles, but with the E80's cover function, the variations thereof are many. Beyond the ROM styles, I use the "Gold" styles of the E80's V2 upgrade disproportionately often. They're so versatile.

I have a handful of third party styles I call upon. Just penny numbers, though. And I only use them in specific instances where I can find nothing better onboard, which is rarely.

I'd say I use upwards of 90% of the styles that came with the T2. Most are not edited in any significant way at all.

The rest are 3rd party creations I've picked up along the way.

100% ROM styles for demos and clinics.

0% for my own music

I heavily edit, beginning with ROM and third party styles, using Style Assembly, in most cases re-making Intro 1 into a stop/fill, and Intros 2/3 into additional Main Variations as well as making the transitions between each section more musical.

Fills are edited as well to fit the changes between variations.

Generally my re-assembled styles are arranged thusly:

Variation A...Verse 1

Variation B...Verse2

Variation C...Bridge/Chorus

Variation D...Last verse.

The modified Intros 2/3, are generally between 4-8 bars in length, and are usually meant to use as lead-ins to Variations B and D...essentially giving me a style with a total of six variations and an extra stop/fill.

Yamaha Tyros4, Yamaha MS-60S Powered Monitors(2), Yamaha CS-01, Yamaha TQ-5, Yamaha PSR-S775.

I use ..maybe 20 "go to styles", and even then I like to turn off parts , and keep it more like a real combo..This way they seem to cover tunes better...

I only use a small number of the S900 styles. Mainly swing, bossas, ballads, a few waltzes, and a little country. Wish I had more options of those styles and less of all the other stuff. Use very little 3rd party styles.

I use about 75% of the rom and 25% of ethnic user styles. The 75% is right out of the keyboard with no editing.

I use 36 from the E50.

Actually I don't know, but some of my favorites are in ROM. Also use at least an equal number from card, but most of those are from the G70, and ROM styles that I have edited a little and saved to RAM.
I use far fewer outside styles on the Ketrons. Their selection of factory styles seem to suit my repertoire pretty well.

not many of the onboard styles.
Most of the ones I use, I've converted, or created by mix n matching style tracks from onboard / converted styles/ BIAB style tracks.
In short, I try & put together a style that suits the type of music I want to play.
