StyleMagic YA: The Ultimate Yamaha Style Editor
If you are a Yamaha keyboard owner, you might have heard of StyleMagic YA, a software program that allows you to create and edit styles for your instrument. StyleMagic YA is developed by MidiSoft, a company that specializes in software for Yamaha, Korg, Roland, and Ketron keyboards. StyleMagic YA is the only tool of its kind that offers complete editing of both SMF and CASM data, which are the two main components of a Yamaha style file. SMF stands for Standard MIDI File, which contains the musical notes and events of each style part. CASM stands for Chord Accompaniment System Manager, which defines how the style parts are played depending on the chord and the variation. StyleMagic YA supports SFF, SFF1, and SFF GE formats, which are the different versions of Yamaha style files used by various models of keyboards.
StyleMagic YA has a user-friendly interface that lets you access all the features and functions of the program with ease. You can view and edit the style parts in a multitrack editor, where you can add, delete, move, copy, paste, transpose, quantize, and modify notes and events. You can also use the mixing console to adjust the volume, pan, reverb, chorus, DSP effects, and voice settings of each style part. You can also use the voice editor to change the voice type, category, bank select, program change, MSB, LSB, and XG parameters of each style part. You can also use the CASM editor to edit the CASM parameters in SFF GE format, which is a unique feature of StyleMagic YA that you won't find in any other program. The CASM parameters control how the style parts are played in different chord types, chord roots, chord inversions, chord fingerings, chord widths, and chord notes. You can also use the karaoke editor to add lyrics and chords to your style files.
StyleMagic YA is compatible with Windows 11, Windows 10 (32&64 bit), Windows 8.1 (32&64 bit), Windows 8 (32&64 bit), Windows 7 (32&64 bit), and Windows XP. It supports a wide range of Yamaha keyboards, including all PSR, Tyros, Genos models and some digital pianos. You can download a free trial version of StyleMagic YA from [MidiSoft's website] or watch a tutorial video on [YouTube]. The full version of StyleMagic YA costs $49 USD and can be purchased online via PayPal or credit card.
