Introduction
Although the PSR-9000 and 9000Pro are two of the most powerful music workstations
available, this software update adds even more features and power.
Before we move on to the installation procedure, make sure that the following floppy
disks have been prepared. If you do not have them yet, download the necessary files
from the Yamaha PK Club web site (http://www.yamahaPKclub.com/).

Important! – Backup Before Installation
If you have made any changes to the Flash Style, OTS, or Music Database contents
that you want to keep, we recommend that you back up your data to floppy disk before
installing the new software.
You’ll need one or two blank floppy disks for this!
Also, the new operating system allots 30 kilobytes more Custom Voice memory than
preceding operating system software. We recommend that you back up the Custom
Voice data if you’re upgrading from a previous operating, but in the case that you want
to re-install a previous operating system after upgrading, you will definitely need to use
the Save To Disk function to save any Custom Voice data you want to keep to disk (the
amount of Custom Voice memory will be reduced and thus the Custom Voice memory
will be initialized).
page 129
page 153
If you haven’t made any changes to the settings listed above, or don’t want to keep any
changes you’ve made, you can skip straight ahead to “Installing Your New Software”
on page 8.
Backing Up Your Data............................................
There are several ways to back up your data, depending on the types of changes you have made and
the data you want to keep. Look over the options presented below and choose the one that best suits
your backup requirements.
All Data
This method will let you back up any combination of Setup, Style, OTS, Music Database, Registration, and Multi Pad data. This backup option uses the Disk/SCSI Backup function.

Individual Flash Styles
If you only have a few Flash Styles you need to back up, the “All Data” method described above
might not be what you need. Here’s how you can backup individual Flash Styles, or a group of
Flash Styles as required.
This backup option uses the Save Style From Flash ROM function.

Installing Your New Software
Once you’ve backed up any personal data you want to keep, as described in the preceding section, you can go ahead and install the new operating system.
Installing the Main and Sub Programs
• Don’t turn off the power during the software installation process! Also, don’t eject any of the program disks while they are loading! Doing so can result in incomplete and/or corrupted data,
requiring complete system re-installation.

remaining MAIN PROGRAM disks in the same way
(always be sure to insert the disk specified by the
instructions on the LCD).

When the main program has been fully loaded “Completed” will appear on the LCD.
Press the [EXIT] button to return to the PROGRAM INSTALLER menu.
Press the LCD [C] button to begin the SUB PROGRAM load procedure.
Insert the SUB PROGRAM disk and press the [START/STOP] button, then wait for the

4. The New Features
New Split Points ...................................................
Previous versions of the operating system allowed one split point to be specified to separate the
auto-accompaniment/left-hand section and the right-hand section of the keyboard. The new operating system allows three split points:
● ACMP SPLIT POINT
Separates the auto-accompaniment section of the keyboard from the left- and right-hand
sections.
● LEFT SPLIT POINT
Separates the left- and right-hand sections of the keyboard.
● RIGHT 3 SPLIT POINT
Allows a separate split point to be specified for the R3 voice. This means that you could,
for example, assign only the top octave of the keyboard to a percussion or sound-effect
voice.
Access: [FUNCTION] ➔ SPLIT POINT/FINGERING
You can set the split points by
pressing the desired key while
holding the corresponding
LCD button.
Use the appropriate LCD buttons to set the split points as required, or use the DIRECT SETTING
functions to directly specify the corresponding split point via the keyboard.
• The “A” (ACMP) split point cannot be set higher than the “L” (LEFT) or “R” (RIGHT 3) split point, and vice
versa. In the same way the “R” split point cannot be set lower than the “L” or “A” split point.
• When the “L” and “A” split points are set at different keys, the LEFT voice can be played between the “L”
and “A” split points when the Auto Accompaniment function is on. When the “L” and “A” split points are set
to the same key, the LEFT voice can be played anywhere to the left of the “L” and “A” split points.

4. The New Features
New Fingerings ....................................................
New fingerings have been added for even greater auto-accompaniment versatility. The available
fingering modes are listed below.
● Single Finger
Same as in previous versions.
● Multi Finger
Same as in previous versions.
● On Bass Pro
The lowest note played becomes the bass note.
All other fingerings are the same as in the Fingered Pro mode.
● Fingered
This is the most standard fingering mode including two-note fingerings as shown in the fingering
chart on pages 11 and 12.
● On Bass Pro Advanced
The lowest note played becomes the bass note.
All other fingerings are the same as in the Fingered Pro Advanced mode.
● Fingered Advanced
This mode is ideal for jazz-type chord voicings
which omit the root and/or 5th. The Fingered
Advanced mode also allows two-note fingerings.
See the fingering chart on pages 12 and 13 for
details.
● Full Keyboard
Fingerings are the same as in the Fingered
Advanced mode, but chord detection occurs over
the entire keyboard. Arpeggios are not supported
in this mode.
● Fingered Pro
Chords are only detected (changed) when three
or more notes are played. This makes it possible
to play one- or two-note lines (e.g. obbligato or
riff melody) with the left part without causing a
chord change.
● Fingered Pro Advanced
This is a “pro” version of the Fingered Advanced
mode — i.e. chords are only detected when three
or more notes are played.
● On Bass
The lowest note played becomes the bass note.
All other fingerings are the same as in the Fingered mode.
● AI Full Keyboard (9000Pro Only)
This Full Keyboard mode is suitable for the
piano performance with the both hands (e.g.
arpeggios and melody). Chords can be presumed
even one or two notes are played. There is a limit
to the types of chords that can be detected. See
the fingering chart of the Fingered Advanced
mode on page 13.
• This fingering mode may not be suitable for some
performance.
● On Bass Advanced
The lowest note played becomes the bass note.
All other fingerings are the same as in the Fingered Advanced mode.
• Notes in parentheses can be omitted.
• If you play any three adjacent keys (including black keys), the chord sound will be canceled and only the
rhythm instruments will continue playing (Chord Cancel function).
• The chord fingerings listed are all in “root” position, but other inversions can be used – with the exceptions
described on Note column.
• The auto accompaniment will sometimes not change when related chords are played in sequence (e.g.
some minor chords followed by the minorseventh).
• Two-note fingerings will produce a chord based on the previously played chord.

4. The New Features
Stop Accompaniment ............................................
This new function allows auto accompaniment to be used even when accompaniment playback is
stopped. When a chord is played in the auto-accompaniment section of the keyboard the currently
selected pad and bass parts will sound. This can be particularly handy for free-tempo (rubato) passages, or simply to practice at your own pace.
Access: [FUNCTION] ➔ SPLIT POINT/FINGERING ➔ [NEXT]
Turn STOP ACCOMPANIMENT ON or OFF.
• This function will be disabled when the fingering mode is set to Full Keyboard or AI Full Keyboard, even
when Stop Accompaniment is turned ON.
Song Chain ...........................................................
The SONG CHAIN function lets you set up a sequence of songs which will play back automatically – ideal for background music.
Access: [SONG SETUP] ➔ SONG CHAIN
The MODE parameter
offers a choice of SINGLE
to play only the selected
song file directory, ALL to
play all marked song file
directories, and RANDOM
to play the marked song
file directories in random
sequence.
When the REPEAT parameter is OFF the song chain will
play through once and then
stop. When ON the chain will
repeat until playback is
stopped manually.
Select a category.
Mark (include) or un-mark
(exclude) the category.
• When ALL or RANDOM is selected the directory containing the currently selected song file will be played
back at first, even if it is not marked. Then the marked directories will follow.
14
4. The New Features
Next Song Reservation..........................................
This function makes it possible to specify the next song to be played while the current song is still
playing, so that the next song begins as soon as the current song finishes.
Access: SONG FILE DIRECTORY [I] ~ [V]
Current song.
Reserved for
playback next.
Cancel the next song.
While the current song is playing press the appropriate LCD button to select the next song once. A
thick border will appear around the selected song title, indicating that it is reserved for playback
next. If you press the song-select button a second time playback of the new song will begin immediately.
HD Sleep Time Control ...........................................
In previous versions the internal hard disk (when installed) would always go into “sleep” mode
after a preset time, both to maximize the lifetime of the hard disk and to minimize unnecessary
mechanical noise. The few seconds it took for the hard disk to “wake up” from the sleep mode,
could, however, be a problem in some situations.
In the new version you can set the hard disk sleep time from anywhere between 30 seconds and 1
hour, or to “never” if you never want the hard disk to go into sleep mode.
Access: [FUNCTION] ➔ UTILITY ➔ TIME ➔ HD SLEEP TIME
Set the hard disk sleep time
as required.

4. The New Features
Panel Sustain Rate Control ....................................
As always the panel [SUSTAIN] button adds sustain to the voice being played on the keyboard for
a smoother overall sound. The new Panel Sustain Rate Control feature allows you to adjust the
length of sustain created when the [SUSTAIN] button is ON, for optimum sound with the voice
used and your playing style.

Access: [FUNCTION] ➔ CONTROLLER ➔ PANEL CONTROLLER ➔ PANEL SUSTAIN
Set the PANEL SUSTAIN from
-64 to 63. The higher the
value the longer the sustain.
• The PANEL SUSTAIN value is relative, so the actual length of sustain produced will depend on the voice
used.
16
4. The New Features
Sustain Mode (new for the PSR-9000) ...................
This feature has already been implemented on the 9000Pro, but is new on the PSR-9000.
When the sustain mode is set to DEFAULT pressing the sustain pedal produces sustain with decay,
like an acoustic piano. When the sustain mode is set to HOLD, the sustain is maintained indefinitely – ideal for organ, strings, pads, or similar voices. The actual sustain effect produced will
depend on the selected voice.

5. Power Tips
The “Power Tips” presented in this section can help you make the most of the creative
power and performance potential offered by the PSR-9000 and 9000Pro. And note that
these tips don’t only apply to the new features – the Power Tips can be used with any
previous version of the operating system as well.
2-note Chords.......................................................
In addition to making it possible to easily play chords that would normally require you to play 3 or
4 notes by actually playing only 2 notes, the ability to specify the bass note in the Fingered and
Fingered Advanced modes can be a real advantage when playing progressions like the example
below. Try playing the example, and you’ll see what we mean. For details on two-note fingerings,
see page 12.
● Example Progression
Style: Slow & Easy (16 Beat Category)
Fingering Mode: Fingered or Fingered Advanced

Cm 7 on Bb
F on A
Fm on Ab

Maintaining Effects When Multitrack Recording ......
Normally, when multitrack recording you’ll select a voice for R1, record a track, then select a different R1 voice and record the next track. The problem is that when the results are played back the
first track will be played back without effects. The easiest solution is to use R2 for the second track
instead of R1. That way the DSP effect used for the R1 tracks will be maintained even after the R2
track is recorded.
When you play back a recording that has been made as described above, no DSP effects will be
applied a panel voice you play on the keyboard. If you turn the panel DSP ON, however, the effect
used in the song will be applied to the panel voice

Press the LCD [F] button from the main display to turn only the R1 part on and all other parts off.
In the same way, press the LCD [G] button to turn the R2 part on and all other parts off. If you
assign the next voice you want to use to R2, for example, then while playing R1 you can press the
LCD [G] button to instantly switch to R2 and the assigned voice. Furthermore, the DSP effect is
not switched so you can seamlessly switch between voices while playing.

SMF Song Name Converter ....................................
In the PSR-9000 and 9000Pro it has become possible to use filenames longer than the standard 8character limit. This means you can name files with complete song titles, for example, for easy
identification. Because of the conventional 8-character limit many SMF Song files have file names
made up of symbols and numbers, while the actual song title is embedded in the file and can only
be viewed when the file is loaded and used.
The SMF Song Name Converter feature resolves this problem by automatically extracting the
embedded file name and attaching it as the file name. You can even “bulk convert” a number of files
in one operation.
page 131
page 155

5. Power Tips
Parameter Lock – Reverb Type...............................
Some SMF Song files automatically change the reverb type when played. If you don’t want this to
happen, use this Parameter Lock function. The Parameter Lock setting is memorized with the System Backup data, so if you always want to keep the Reverb Type setting “locked”, perform a System Backup so that the Parameter lock setting will remain in effect.
page 142
page 166
Reverb Effect Return Level and Parameter Lock .....
When you want to increase or decrease the amount of overall reverb applied to the accompaniment,
individually editing all styles is time-consuming and inefficient. The easy approach is to use the
Reverb Return Level parameter to adjust the overall reverb depth.
Some SMF songs automatically change the Reverb Return Level setting when played. If you want
to retain your reverb Return Level setting no matter what songs you play use the Parameter Lock
function, and perform a System Backup so that the settings will be retained.

Selecting an XG Voice............................................
XG is a major enhancement of the GM System Level 1 format, and has been developed by Yamaha
specifically to provide more voices and variations, as well as greater expressive control over voices
and effects, and to ensure compatibility of data well into the future. To call up the XG voices of a
certain voice category, simply select a voice category while pressing the [XG] button.

5. Power Tips
Song Chord Detection............................................
Try this technique if you want to learn the chord progression for a song, or apply Harmony/Echo
effects or Vocal Harmony that match the song.
Most songs will have one part which is playing the chord progression – the first step is to locate
that part. While playing the song, turn the parts on and off, “soloing” each part until you find the
one that is playing the chord backing. Next, if the chord part is on Track 6, for example, Set the
Mic Setup Chord parameter to TR6 and return to the main display page. The chord names should
appear on the display as the song plays back. To learn the chord progression all you need to do is
make a note of the chords that appear on the display. Turn Harmony/Echo ON if you want to add
harmony to a part you play on the keyboard, or turn Vocal Harmony ON and select the Chordal
Mode to produce appropriate vocal harmony.
You might also want to memorize the settings with the song selection in the Registration Memory
so that the next time you select that Registration Memory the Mic Setup Chord parameter settings
will automatically be recalled.
Select Chordal Mode (CHORD) if you
want Vocal Harmony effect.
Select the appropriate track.

Reducing Mic Sibilance ..........................................
Sibilant sound, such as spoken words that begin with the letter S, tend to sound over emphasized
when sung through a microphone. To reduce this hissing effect, press the [MIC SETUP] button. In
the 3 Band EQ section, the default setting of the high EQ is 8kHz/+5dB. Change this setting to
10kHz and reduce the gain (dB) to +3dB or whichever setting best suits your acoustic environment.

5. Power Tips
Mic Compressor ....................................................
Compression is an essential effect for a vocal microphone. It allows singing to be reproduced more
clearly and smoothly by boosting the level of soft signals and lowering the level of loud signals.
Press the [MIC SETUP] button to access the Mic Compressor. Try the singing with the compressor
effect turned on and then compare singing with it turned off. Notice the difference?
page 70
page 82
Vocal Harmony Mode ............................................
Vocal Harmony mode can be set to either Chordal mode (harmony is determined by chords played
in the auto accompaniment or by chords contained in song data) or Vocoder mode (harmony is
determined by the notes you play on the keyboard or by the Vocal Harmony track of a song). When
this mode is set to AUTO, the Vocal Harmony setting changes automatically according to the situation. For example, if you play back a song file that contains a Vocal Harmony track, the Vocal Harmony setting will automatically switch to Vocoder mode. To access the Vocal Harmony setting,
press the [MIC SETUP] button.

5. Power Tips
Talk Button ..........................................................
This function is ideal for making announcements between your singing performances. When singing a song, several effects such as reverb, delay and vocal harmony are usually assigned to the MIC
Setup. When speaking to your audience, however, these effects may sound disturbing. Whenever
the [TALK] button is turned on, Delay and Vocal Harmony effects turn off and the amount of
reverb lowers automatically. Talk settings can be customized as well, allowing you to add effects to
your voice as you speak to your audience.

Keyboard Transpose and Song Transpose ...............
Two types of transpose settings are available: Keyboard Transpose and Song Transpose. Keyboard
Transpose changes the key of the keyboard as well as the chord accompaniment. Song Transpose
changes the key of a song when played back from disk. The combination of these functions allows
you to, for example, sing along in the key of E with a song that’s been recorded in the key of D,
while playing the keyboard in the key of C.

Touch Limit for Harmony/Echo ...............................
This function determines how hard the keyboard must be played in order for the Harmony/Echo
effect to sound. The higher the value, the harder the keyboard must be played to apply the Harmony/Echo effect. This setting is useful for adding performance expression to a voice; for example,
adding a tremolo effect to a mandolin voice when played at higher velocities.

Sub Line Out ........................................................
Next to the main stereo outputs are two (four on the 9000Pro) sub outputs, which can be used as
either two single outputs or one stereo output. You can assign any part or parts, including the MIC
signal and groups of drum sounds, to these outputs. If an audio cable is not plugged into a sub output jack, the signal of any part assigned to that output will be automatically routed to the main stereo outputs, which eliminates the hassle of reconfiguring the outputs whenever your playing
environment changes. For further convenience, the output assignment is saved in Registration
Memory and, if preferred, can be locked using the Parameter Lock function.
