You may need to go through some remapping exercises to find some acceptable substitutes on the T2 or back to your original question about samples. Look at the

From what I have read the T2 is somewhat OK in reading samples but it is not its strength. I think it will be a case-by-case basis of when you will have success. One thing I know it does not do is beat matching for tempo changes when using loops. It does support AIFF and WAV formats. However, I have seen posts from time to time with people having problems loading some AIFF samples. Sorry I don't have more concrete info for you about samples on the T2.

As for the sounds on the T2 if you look at page 18 on the T2 data list
http://www2.yamaha.co.jp/manual/pdf/emi/english/port/tyros2_en2.pdf

you will see a listing of what sounds are in the Arabic drum kit. Page 7 is the GM ethnic group.

The below link is to a post where George Kaye, a knowledgeable keyboard dealing in CA, stated that Yamaha is working on a full conversion of the A1000 for the T2. Perhaps they will work on upgraded sounds as well.

Thanks for the info once again. About George Kaye's statement about the PSRA1000 styles and sounds being used for the T2 via the USB to port, when will that be done?

I don't use any IM product. Shoot me an email and I'll send you some contact info so we can talk. BTW, just did a service tonight with the T2 and oriental styles. I had them tapping their toes for Henai Matov and V'Shamru.

Email me at robertg323@gmail.com
