Listen to a style
Hi everybody,

Here's a tip for those who quickly want to listen to styles without having to load them in a keyboard, or open with Style Player,  Style Works, or any other PC program.

In the explorer (My Computer), change the extension .STY to .MID, and play it as a regular midi.

Afterwards, change MID back to STY.
PS: I always use a copy of the style to do this.

Grtz,

Stijn

Re: Listen to a style
Many thanks, you are right Stijn, but if you don't want to change the extension .sty to .MID don't mind, it's easy if you have MIDI PLAYER vanBasco's (or may be other similar), just drag the pattern over the direct acces and instantly the style begins to sound like a MIDI, and there's a text in the screen with the parts of the style.

But now I have a question: This way to listen the styles directly only works with YAMAHA styles, (I try with others styles ROLAND, KORG, KETRON and don't work), but if you change the extension of a style .STL to .MID (for example "NEWYORK1.sty" to "NEWYORK1.mid") and after you edit this midi in a sequencer like CUBASE or LOGIC, and after this new edited midi "NEWYORK2".mid you change it  to "NEWYORK2.sty" another time, this new style works in YAMAHA? I'm a KETRON's user and I haven't a YAMAHA to try. Many thanks to all. Andreu

Re: Listen to a style
this worked fine for me. And on the basis of this tip I have to add that I remember I heard a tip 1-2 years ago that the new Wersi Pegasus Wing can read Yamaha styles (.STY). Then I guess it would be possible for owners of that keyboard to just convert any midi files to .sty files and try to play them on their Wersi Pegasus Wing.

This keyboard is available from here: http://www.musicstore.de/en_EN/CHF/Wersi-Pegasus-Wing-Professional-Keyboard/art-KEY0002882-000

Funny to read this tip...
