I use Powertrack Pro to produce SMFs to play on my Tyros 2. Everything works great except there are no effects on my organ sounds. I need to know what sysex to imbed in order to trigger the DSP rotary effect Off/On. The Tyros owner's manual lists the MSB and LSB values but I need help formulating the sysex string (or strings). Thanks, DVJ
I might be wrong, but if the Tyros 2 is anything like my Motif, the Rotary Speaker effects may actually respond to modulation wheel input (CC#1) for slow/fast switching. In the manual, these effects are listed with LFO control capability, which probably means that LFO speed is linked to the mod wheel, or some other physical controller on the keyboard.
You will need separate SysEx strings to set the effect type, and to insert the effect to your organ part/track. There will be additional SysEx strings involved if you want to adjust the other effect parameters.
Set DSP2 effect type (2WAY ROT SP):
F0 43 10 4C 03 00 00 5600 F7
MSB 86 = 56h, LSB 0 = 00h
Insert DSP2 to MIDI part 1:
F0 43 10 4C 03 00 0C 00 F7
Part 1 = 00h, Part 2 = 01h, Part 3 = 02h ... etc.
These are relatively generic strings for XG-compatible instruments, which I think the Tyros 2 should recognize. You'll need to convert the decimal values found in the Tyros 2 data list into hexadecimal values, as shown in the last column. Windows 7's built-in calculator has a programmer mode, that makes this part easy.
Looking up tables and converting numbers is very time consuming. I generally use MIDIox instead, to find the SysEx strings I need for my own instruments. To do that, you have to connect your Tyros 2 to the computer. You can use the regular 5-pin MIDI connectors if your computer already has a MIDI Interface, or the "TO HOST" USB type B connector (requires the Yamaha USB-MIDI driver to be installed).
Once the MIDI connection is in place, install the MIDIox software. Set it up to receive MIDI data from your Tyros 2, and you'll be able to monitor all the incoming MIDI data as you change the settings (or play the keys) on your instrument. You can then copy the SysEx data strings you need into Powertrack Pro.
