Yamaha PSR-S970 / PSR-S770 Expansion Pack and Tyros5 Premium Pack "Live Organ"
The content of "Live Organ“:
• 50 Expansion Voices
• 26 Registration Banks (208 Registrations)
• 24 Multisamples / 160 MB Samples (AIFF linear)
"LiveOrgan“ emulates the sound of a classic "B3" drawbar organ.
For getting the highest authenticity, pressure and original organ feeling, the organ samples include distortion and slow/fast rotary speaker. The internal distortion and Rotary effects from the Yamaha Keyboards are not needed for this kind of sampling.
The difference is hard to describe – please check and compare the demos!
A very powerful feature are the "Fifth Distorted“ organ waves, which include the basic tone and the fifth, which is a typical playing style in Rock music.
This way the typical distorted rock organ sounds are amazingly real. These distortion samples are mapped in some voices in the range of C1 through B3.
The samples including rotary speaker and distortion are added with some dry organ waves, sometimes with vibrato or organ percusssion. These pearly and clear organ sounds are perfect for jazz, funk and rhythm & blues.
The Expansion Voices are divided into five groups:
Voices 01 – 12 = Original rotary speaker sound without Percussion
Voices 13 – 20 = Organ with Percussion
Voices 21 – 30 = Dry Organ without rotary speaker
Voices 31 – 40 = Soft Attack Organ
Voices 41 – 50 = Soft Organ for the LEFT Part
Some of the voices are only variations of the original multi-sample. Important differences exist especially in attack behavior (original, with additional organ percussion, with "Soft Attack").
In the registrations, the organ sounds are combined with drum grooves or complete styles.
In the first six Registration banks, the Modulation Wheel or a connected Foot Pedal are working multi-functional. Depending on the used range it is possible to reduce the volume or to switch between slow / fast rotary speaker samples. In the other Registration banks you can switch between slow / fast along with the Style Variations, which is simply done by selecting theRegistrations. Because of using separate slow and fast rotary speaker samples, the increasing or decreasing effect between slow and fast is not possible.
The Expansion Pack will be delivered both as an Install-File for Tyros 5(ppi-Format) and as a ppf file for direct loading to the Yamaha Expansion Manager. This way combination with other packs is possible.
