The Music Finder Standard Library: Over 1,000 New Records & Real Song Names

Attention and all Music Finder users, especially those using Yamaha's newly released keyboards and Clavinovas - you can now expand your Music Finder library with over 1,000 new records. The newly available, and totally free, Music Finder Standard Library is here to expand your keyboard with records featuring full song names, and full style, tempo and voice setups.

The Standard Library is especially useful for users of the new PSR-S910, PSR-S710, and the latest Clavinovas in the CVP-500 series, since these instruments all include a preloaded Music Finder library featuring only a couple hundred songs. The new Music Finder Standard Library is designed to let you use Music Finder the way it was meant to be used. With thousands of records at your finger tips you can be up and playing your favorite songs with the perfect sounds in seconds.

In addition to providing a full library of Music Finder records, the Standard Library also includes the full original song name for each record. This will prove especially useful for users of older keyboards and Clavinovas, whose Music Finder record names may be encrypted.

To get the Standard Library on to your instrument, first select your instrument on the Music Finder page of our Online Services site. Then, click "download now" to download the Standard Library file to your computer. Next, transfer the file (it will have a .mfd extension) to a USB flash drive and load it on the instrument. Press the Music Finder button on your keyboard to get to the Music Finder display, then choose "Files". Find the library file on your USB drive, and select it. When given the choice to "Replace" or "Append" the records, choose "Append". When you return to the library you should see thousands of new records waiting for you.

For the uninitiated, Music Finder is a system designed to help you find the perfect voices and styles to use when you want to play a particular song. This demonstration of the system, featuring the great Peter Baartmans, will give you a good idea of what you can do with Music Finder and Music Finder+.
