Hi Ray,
my user styles are basically styles I've converted from another format ie Band in a Box, other style formats, midifiles, sometimes record the odd style track myself. I do them either thru midifile to style conversion, or sometimes via EMC.

I then edit, ie replace tracks, modify or replace intro's/endings/fills etc whatever it needs to try & make it useable.

Straight EMC conversions usually don't sound too great, that's why I stunned that they appear to be converting quite well to Technics format ( wish I still had my KN7 to test them) haahaa

Some of the styles I don't even use myself, they've been a request from style group members.

Soul Beat I tested with Stand By Me & Dock of the Bay.

Country Ballad one of the members mentioned goes well with Country Roads.

Piano Waltz I created for one of the members who luv's Piano Arpeggio's as much as I do. He wanted a simple style for Moon River & Fascination.
( English Waltz should work with these tunes also)

Orch Swing kn2 is actually an old kn2 style.
I added additional variations, ending & intro, which may not show up in a kn7.
Korg has 3 intro's/endings. Again, try it with standards.

Styles like Autumn, Classic Piano Bld etc I hope to use with some of the old 40's/50's standards. (Autumn Leaves being one of my favourites). Just try them with some of the old standars. Arpeggio styles work quite well with a lot of tunes.

P&W AWA style, is a Band in a Box Praise & Worship Style, not something I use myself. It was just an experiment quite a while back to see how well a BIAB style would convert to keyboard format. I'm waiting to hear back if it's useable & for what?
I find some of the BIAB styles too busy for keyboard use. They sound great in BIAB itself, but in a 4 or 8 bar loop not always good.

It's hard trying to get feedback as to what songs members are actually using the styles for.

It's also great to see non korg users get to use the styles , thanks to Bernie.

best wishes
Rikki

Hi Bernie,
if it helps, I usually set my styles out this way.

Intro 1 & 2, are normal intro's with or without chord progression.
Intro 3 is usually just a count in.
Normally ending 3 is the simplest of all the endings.
Fill 1 usually works for vari 1&2, fill 2 for vari 3&4, fill 3 is the break.

Odd occasion fill 1 for vari 1,2 & 3. fill 2 for vari 4.

I know you have a heap more fills than my korg.

The above info probably would have been of more help before you started converting. haahaa, ( wise in hindsight) but I have got more styles to upload.

best wishes
Rikki

Thanks Rikki,
It seems I was looking for a lazy way out, and I should have used my own initiative, as your answer floats my boat down the stream I normally play.
I will check, but I think you are right about Orch Swing, it did sound a bit empty when I played it, and maybe all did not transfer to my KN7,but as I said before, the rest are quite a change and I like them quite a lot.
One file shows Manjaz, but it is empty. Any reason for that?
This Global Warming!!!!!! has hit you people a bit early down there, "bugger"!!!!!

Sorry Rikki,
Why did I think you lived in South Australia?
The question is too hard for me.
My daughter, granddaughter, grandson and son-in-law are off to Fingal Bay on Saturday for a week. A nice spot to live.

Hi Ray,
we're in a quiet little backwater called Lemon Tree Passage. Sort of nice after living in Sydney. There again, living in Turramurra wasn't all that hectic either.
We lived down near the Bobbin Head National Park.

AS for South Australia, we visited there once. Luved it, but couldn't stand the heat.

As a Technics owner , just out of interest, did you buy your keyboards from Bob Ransley & Ollie. ( Associated Electrics?? I think)

Hi Bernie,
that's very generous of you to share your KN collection with the members.
I'm sure the members will really appreciate it.

I enjoy playing music to myself, but love it when I can share with people who enjoy it. I am sure all of the members feel the same.
