  • Yamaha CFX - lets share presets!

    Hi everybody,

    Im the happy owner of the Yamaha CFX full library, and are using it for my live gigs.
    So far I have made two presets that I use;

    1: SALSA LIVE - for playing my salsa/timba/latinjazz gigs, Im pretty happy with the feel, sound and blending of this preset. (Close 1, Close 2, Mid 1)

    2: JAZZ LIVE - for my bigband/jazzgroup gigs. Im quite happy with it, but its not totally there yet.. Maybe some of you can try it and tweak it. Im not a sound engineer so I dont have the skills of knowing exactly where to turn the knobs to make it sound better, Im just trying small things here and there.. 😉 (Room-Mix, Close 1, Close 2, Mid 1)


    Feel free to take my presets and use them as you like, and upload your own here!

    By the way, Im using KAWAI VPC1 and the Pianoteq velocity preset in the VPC Editor.

    Have a nice sunday out there 😊

    Good idea!

    But to use your presets, I have to buy a Full version 😊

    Anyway this is my preset for Standard! I play with this almost everyday.

    Secone one is no Reverb version. The more you prefer closer piano, the more you'll use it.

    BTW Is here anyone who can share presets for Vienna Imperial?

    Factory presets is good but I would like to use more presets 😊

    Here's mine; uses six microphones so a bit resource-heavy.

    You're very welcome; glad you like it. 😊

    I've attached another that I use here as well.  Quite similar to the previous one in terms of overall feel, but using some different mics.  The main difference is a bit less sparkle from the ambient mics, but a bit more clarity overall.  I call this my Everyday one, and use it for longer playing periods when the other one can become a bit tiring.

  • When I download thsese presets they are in exec format. How can I make them playable in my Synchron Piano Player? Thanks for the help.

    God Bless,

  • Just put the preset file in the folder with your other presets, I think theyre normally in a subfolder to youre sample-files :-)

    And then they will show up in the player between your own presets.


  • Thanks. It works. 

    God Bless,

    Yeah!! I dont know if youve seen it, but in the new release you can make the sound more dry.

    Ive made two presets Im using now, one for recording and one for live-performances with less microphones to make sure that there isnt any pops and glitches. Feel free to download, tweak and use them as you like 😊

    Have a nice day!

    I'm also using the VPC-1 and I find the Pianoteq curve a bit too soft, so I use the "Heavy" default instead. 

    Did you ever try to customize it?
