How to choose the best MIDI Song or Style version for your instrument

In the last installment, we introduced you to one way to find compatible products for your Yamaha instrument. In today’s post, we show you how to refine your choice using the “Help Me Choose” option so you can select the best MIDI Song (or Style) for your instrument.

In the previous post, we learned how to navigate through the site to a specific MIDI Song and select the compatible version of that song for our Tyros 5 Arranger Workstation. For a refresher, please visit that post here.

For this post, we'll start at the product detail page for our example song:

Next, we’ll zoom into the “Version” section of the page and click on “Help Me Choose”
A pop up appears and shows us additional information about each version type. This information includes compatible instruments by name/model number as well as additional features included with that version. Scroll down to get a description of the optimized version for the Tyros 5 (XT5):

By selecting the “optimized” version for your instrument, you can be sure you’re receiving the version of the song that takes full advantage of the features and sound engine available in you instrument!

Close the pop up and you are returned to the product detail page for this song. From here, you can pick the Tyros 5 version by clicking on "Select An Instrument". Follow the Tyros path through the compatibility checker and the system will automatically select that version for you. From there, you can Add To Cart and check out through the shopping cart system:

We hope you are finding this series helpful in navigating the site. We're here to help you have the most enjoyable experience on your musical journey!

Please keep the questions coming.
