recording and editing of MIDI-Files, part 1  

Many users have a computer system available for recording and editing of songs. All the YAMAHA instruments are able to record songs in the compatible MIDI-File format and many musicians use MIDI-files for an accompaniment. But: What is the best method to record a MIDI-File? It is obvious to use the computer with the sequencer software to record all the notes coming from the Auto Accompaniment as well as from the notes played on the keyboard. Is it the best method to record all the MIDI-data to the external sequencer? NO! Due to the realtime MIDI-transmission you will loose the important setup data for any MIDI-channel, settings for the sounds and the effects. It is clever to use the advantages of both: The internal song recorder of the YAMAHA instrument as well as the possibilities of the external software! The internal song recorder and the external Sequencer are a real "dream team". This tutorial shows the possibilities on the PSR-S550. But you can do this in the same way for any other instrument like PSR, Tyros or the CVP models.

recording and editing of MIDI-Files, part 2  

The song is recorded on the YAMAHA instrument. Now you will import the file to the software sequencer and edit the song. Inside the tracks produced by the Auto accompaniment you will find a huge amount of redundant MIDI-data. This is not good for the musical timing. This tutorial shows how to delete all the data by one click! So the song will be much tighter than before.
