New Voice and Style Expansion Packs Available for New Arranger Workstations

Yamaha MusicSoft is proud to announce the addition of Voice and Style Expansion packs for the new Yamaha PSR-S 70 series of Arranger Workstations!  The best news is that you can load your own custom mix of voices and styles from different packs using Yamaha Expansion Manager.

Yamaha Expansion Manager (or YEM) allows you to select different voices and styles from the various packs in your library to create a custom “playlist” of favorite voices and styles. Once you select your choices in YEM, you can load that set into your new PSR-S arranger workstation.  Click here for the free download of Yamaha Expansion Manager.  YEM is available on both Windows and Mac operating systems.


There are two easy ways to expand your instrument:


Method One - Install One Whole Pack

When you download your expansion pack from yamahamusicsoft.com, it will contain 3 files – A .ppi file, a .ppf file and a Read Me file with brief instructions. We will start with the “Direct Load” option using the .ppi file. This option will load the entire contents of an individual pack directly into your arranger workstation following these easy steps:


  1. Copy the Expansion Installation file (which is the .ppi file) into the root folder of your USB storage device. (Remember: Do not rename the files.)
  2. Connect your USB flash storage device to the USB TO DEVICE terminal on your keyboard, and then press the [FUNCTION] button to call up the display.
  3. Use the TAB [<] and [>] buttons and Cursor buttons to select [Pack Installation], and press [ENTER]
  4. Use the Cursor buttons to select the Expansion Pack you want to install. Press the [ENTER] button, and press [INSTALL].



Method Two - Mix and Match Voices and Styles


  1. Import the Expansion Pack Project files (the .ppf files) into Yamaha Expansion Manager. You want to make sure you are using YEM version 2.3 or later.  
  2. Pick your favorite contents from the Expansion Pack Project files, and create an original Pack Installation file (.ppi) by selecting “Save as Pack Install File”.
  3. Install the Pack Installation file into your instrument via USB


As a special bonus, download TWO FREE VSE packs right now to mix and match.
  Click the Voice and Style Expansion Pack tab on the next screen.

PSR-S670 Free Packs    PSR-S770 Free Packs    PSR-S970 Free Packs
The two free packs above are the Best of Europe and Mexico Pack 2.

  1. Can these expansion and voice packs work on the PSR3000?

    I still have to use the old keyboard as I save up for the new one.

    1. The PSR3000 is not compatible with Voice and Style Expansion packs. However you can purchase individual Style Files for your keyboard. Check out this link: http://www.yamahamusicsoft.com/dy/instrument/Keyboard/PSR-3000/category/Style+Files/catalog

  3. Geovanne - Não tenho certeza se entendi sua pergunta corretamente como eu não falo português. Você está perguntando se a 70 série (PSR-S670) tem a habilidade de combinar o conteúdo da embalagem para criar uma carga de pacote personalizado? Ou, você está perguntando se a 50 série (PSR-S650, etc.) pode? Se o anterior, você pode usar YEM (gerente de expansão Yamaha) para carregar arquivos de PPF (arquivos de projeto Pack) em YEM para criar uma mistura personalizada de vozes de vários pacotes e em seguida, exportá-los como um .ppi (arquivo de instalação de pacote) para um pen drive para carregar em seu instrumento.
    In English: I’m not sure if I understand your question correctly as I do not speak Portuguese. Are you asking if the 70 series (PSR-S670) has the ability to combine pack contents to create a custom pack load? Or, are you asking if the 50 series (PSR-S650, etc.) can? If the former, you can use YEM (Yamaha Expansion Manager) to load .ppf files (Pack Project Files) into YEM to create a custom mix of voices from various packs and then export those as a .ppi (Pack Installation File) onto a thumb drive to load into your instrument.

  6. Hello, You need to transfer the existing pack from your PSR-A3000 into YEM (via USB) and then create a new pack install file with the existing pack and the new pack. There is a link here to YEM if you need to download it. It also has a link towards the bottom with PDF instructions for YEM. http://www.stage.yamahamusicsoft.com/en/how-to-use/YEM. http://psrtutorial.com/ is also a good resource if you are looking for additional information about the PSR series. If you are still having difficulty, contact Yamaha customer support here:http://www.stage.yamahamusicsoft.com/en/help?nav=2

    1. Hello Anonymous, The .yep file type is associated with the Yamaha Tyros 4 Arranger Workstation. It sound like you may have been delivered the wrong version of the file you need for the PSR-S770 Arranger Workstation. Please contact our customer support at: https://www.yamahamusicsoft.com/contacts and let them know "which" pack they need to resend to you. Thank you. The Yamaha MusicSoft team
