Music Finder+ Is Better Than Ever With 150 New Records Just Released

If you're looking for a fun, free way to enhance your keyboard and your performances, look no farther than Music Finder+ and the 150 new records we've just released. The new records provide full instrument setups for a wide variety of songs, including everything from the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want" to Frank Sinatra's "You Go To My Head" to Green Day's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams". Take a look at the full list of new records here, or in the messages section of Internet Direct Connection. For those unfamiliar with Music Finder, it starts with keyboard feature that lets you select the song you want to play, then automatically sets up the correct voice and style settings to play the song perfectly. Music Finder comes built in on Yamaha's CVP series Clavinovas, PSR series keyboards and Tyros workstations, but you can expand on this built in system with the free Music Finder+ records, and free Music Finder Standard Library available through Internet Direct Connection.

Music Finder+ allows you to add on to the built in Music Finder library of 100 or so songs by choosing your favorites from a selection of over 5,000 additional records. You can also expand your Music Finder library all at once with the free Music Finder Standard Library, which contains thousands of additional records. You can download the Standard Library from the Online Services website or from Internet Direct Connection (choose "Get Music", "Music Finder+", then "Download Standard Library"). All of the records in both the Standard Library and Music Finder+ include the full original song name for each record, which will prove especially useful for users of older keyboards and Clavinovas, whose Music Finder record names may be encrypted.
