One of the key highlights of the update is the addition of new Piano and FM voices. The update adds three new Piano voices, including the Hamburg Grand, Felt Piano, and New CP80, giving musicians a wider range of options to choose from. In addition, the update includes both Classic and Contempory FM Sounds, adding to the already impressive array of FM voices.
The update also brings new functionality to the YC keyboard. Vib/Cho effects for FM Organs have been added, giving players more control over their sound. The update also includes a Pan setting in Live Set Settings, allowing players to adjust the stereo positioning of their sounds. A/B Parameter Link Function has also been added, making it easier to set up complex sound patches. Finally, the update includes Rotary Speaker Speed Hold Settings in Menu, allowing players to keep their rotary setting while changing sound to a different live set.
Two additional Live Set pages have also been added to the YC keyboard. The update adds 16 Live Set sounds, with Page 14 dedicated to Piano contents, and Page 15 for FM contents.
