    Style Section PSR SX700

    Styles have never sounded better or more natural because the programmers are able to use all of the new super articulation voices and improved effects section. Mega voices are specific for the style section creating more authenticity and variation.

    Explanation of voice types Yamaha PSR SX700

    S.Art (Super Articulation)* These Voices provide many benefits with great playability and expressive control in real time. For example, with the Saxophone Voice, if you play a C and then a D in a very legato way, you will hear the note change seamlessly, as though a saxophone player played it in a single breath. Similarly with the Concert Guitar Voice, if you play a C note and then the E just above in a very legato but firm way, the pitch slides up from C to E. Depending on how you play, other effects such as `shaking` or breath noises (for the Trumpet Voice), or finger noises (for the Guitar Voice) are produced.
    Live These acoustic instrument sounds were sampled in stereo, to produce a truly authentic, rich sound-full of atmosphere and ambience
    Cool These Voices use sophisticated programming to capture the dynamic textures and subtle nuances of electric instruments.
    Sweet These acoustic instrument sounds also benefit from Yamaha's sophisticated technology, and feature a finely detailed and natural sound
    Drum Various drum and percussion sounds are assigned to individual keys, letting you play the sounds from the keyboard.
    SFX Various special effect sounds and percussion sounds are assigned to individual keys, letting you play the sounds from the keyboard.
    Live Drums These are high-quality drum sounds that take full advantage of Stereo Sampling and Dynamic Sampling.
    Organ Flutes These authentic organ Voices let you adjust the various footages and craft your own original organ sounds.
    Mega Voices These Voices make special use of velocity switching. Each velocity range (the measure of your playing strength) has a completely different sound. For example, a guitar MegaVoice includes the sounds of various performance techniques. In conventional instruments, different Voices having those sounds would be called up via MIDI and played in combination to achieve the desired effect. However, now with MegaVoices, a convincing guitar part can be played with just a single Voice, using specific velocity values to play the desired sounds. Because of the complex nature of these Voices and the precise velocities need to play the sounds, they're not intended for playing from the keyboard. They are, however, very useful and convenient when creating MIDI data-especially when you want to avoid using several different Voices just for a single instrument part.

    Organ Flutes Yamaha PSR SX700

    The Organ Flutes Voices can be edited by adjusting the footage levers, adding the attack sound, applying effect and equalizer, etc.

    There are three organ types, and each organ type has its own display, which beautifully recreates the actual appearance of an actual instrument.Each type provides realistic, intuitive control over the sound with special footage levers, tabs and switches-letting you adjust the sound with much the same feel as on an actual instrument.

    Explanation of style types Yamaha PSR SX700

    Session These Styles provide even greater realism and authentic backing by mixing in original chord types and changes, as well as special riffs with chord changes, with the Main sections. These have been programmed to add "spice" and a professional touch to your performances of certain songs and in certain genres. Keep in mind, however, that the Styles may not necessarily be appropriate-or even harmonically correct-for all songs and for all chord playing. In some cases for example, playing a simple major triad for a country song may result in a "jazzy" seventh chord, or playing an on-bass chord may result in inappropriate or unexpected accompaniment
    Free Play These Styles are characterized by rubato performance. You can perform freely with remarkably expressive accompaniment, without being constrained by a strict tempo
    DJ These contain their own special chord progressions, so you can add chord changes to your performance simply by changing the root key. The Multi Pad (page 53) data in the "DJ Phrase" category are specially created for these Styles. You can call up the suitable Multi Pads by using the One Touch Setting function (page 43).
    + Audio The Audio Styles (+Audio) have been specially produced by adding audio recordings of studio musicians playing in various recording studios worldwide. This adds exceptionally natural feel, ambience and warmth to the drums and percussion of the Style, giving your performance greater expressive potential. Specifically, it retains the subtle nuances and grooves that are difficult to reproduce using the preset drum/percussion kit. Yamaha Time Stretch Technology allows the audio to follow your tempo changes without changing pitch, so everything stays in perfect sync. Audio Styles can be played back and controlled by this instrument; however, by default the data is not included on this instrument. Audio Styles or Expansion Packs that contain Audio Styles may be available at the Yamaha website (only the PSR SX900 has the capability to add audio styles).
