Today, we are going to learn about OTS, OTS LINK, and how to load a Style File you have purchased from Yamaha MusicSoft. Let's get started.
On the PSR-S950, you have four One Touch Settings and four Style Variations:
|One Touch Setting: the buttons labeled "1, 2, 3, 4"|
|Style Variation: the buttons labeled "A, B, C, D"|
One Touch Setting Link (OTS LINK) is a feature on your Arranger Workstation that grants you full utilization of an OTS. This feature acts is an auto-select function that keeps an OTS tied to the appropriate Style Variation:
- Variation A is linked to One Touch Setting 1
- Variation B is linked to One Touch Setting 2
- Variation C is linked to One Touch Setting 3
- Variation D is linked to One Touch Setting 4
OTS LINK is activated when the OTS LINK button is pressed, and an orange LED is displayed:
You may have noticed that with OTS LINK turned off, you can switch between different One Touch Settings even if you do not change to another Style Variation. This choice is valuable, also. You can perform one Style Variation, while switching between the four available OTS.
Let's go ahead and load Yamaha Style Steel Drum Pop that we've purchased from Yamaha MusicSoft via USB thumb drive.
