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.

Using the Registration Memory To Save Music Database Settings

Although all Music Database data can be saved by using the “All Data” method described above, individual Music Database settings cannot be saved to disk. A convenient way to backup Music

Database settings is to save them to the Registration Memory.

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.

POWER

Insert the MAIN PROGRAM 1 disk and press the [START/

STOP] button. Wait until the first disk is loaded, then follow the instructions on the LCD and insert/load the remaining MAIN PROGRAM disks in the same way

(always be sure to insert the disk specified by the instructions on the LCD).

4.

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.

5.

Press the LCD [C] button to begin the SUB PROGRAM load procedure.

6.

Insert the SUB PROGRAM disk and press the [START/STOP] button, then wait for the

SUB PROGRAM is fully loaded.

7.

When “Completed” appears on the LCD, press the [EXIT] button twice. The 9000 will restart with the new operating system.

• The display may flicker a little when the 9000 is restarted under the new operating system — this is normal.

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.

Fingered

This is the most standard fingering mode including two-note fingerings as shown in the fingering

chart on pages 11 and 12.

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.

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.

On Bass Advanced

The lowest note played becomes the bass note.

All other fingerings are the same as in the Fingered Advanced mode.

On Bass Pro

The lowest note played becomes the bass note.

All other fingerings are the same as in the Fingered Pro mode.

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.

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.

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.

• 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.

• 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]

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.

• 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.

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.

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.

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.

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,

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

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.

page 16 page 16

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.

24 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.

page 124 page 146

5. Power Tips

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.

Instant Access to Any Function Menu ....................

The 9000 lets you instantly call up function menus by simply pressing the [DIRECT ACCESS] button and a button or wheel associated with that function.

Revoice................................................................

Revoice lets you create new style accompaniments by changing style parameters such as the voices, volumes and tempo. Any changes you make to a style can be stored in Registration Memory.

page 108 page 130

Tap Tempo Sound..................................................

You can use the [TAP/TEMPO] button to start song playback simply by tapping a one-measure introduction at your desired tempo. The tap sound and velocity can be customized and stored in

Registration Memory. For example, you can select a loud open hi-hat sound for the intro of a harddriving rock song. Or, choose a soft stick sound for the intro to a slow ballad. To access this function, press the [DIRECT ACCESS] button and then press the [TAP/TEMPO] button.

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.

28 page 70 page 82

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.

page 141 page 165

Password .............................................................

You can protect your floppy disks and hard drives with a password to prevent accidental data loss due to reformatting. To access this function, press the [DISK/SCSI] button and then select FOR-

MAT and PASSWORD using the LCD buttons.

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.

5. Power Tips

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.
