Loading premium packs onto the T3 Using a USB Cable.



Premium packs contain additional voices, styles, multipad banks, songs and registrations and can be purchased from various online sources.

To load a premium pack to The T3 using a USB cable, use the instructions given below.

The advantage of loading a premium pack using this method is that you do not need to keep a USB storage device connected to your instrument to use the pack and there are fewer steps than when loading them via a USB storage device.

Requirements before you begin

You have already obtained and imported your License Key to your instrument.

At the time you purchased your first Yamaha Premium pack, you will have been asked to create and import a License Key to your instrument. If you experience difficulty using your purchased pack, try downloading and importing the License Key again from your www.Yamahamusicsoft.com
account. There is no limit to the number of times you can download this file.

Important note: This file will only work on the instrument it was originally created for.

For instructions on how to export the instrument ID and import the license file, please refer to Licensing your T3 to enable the use of premium packs

Some premium packs may require the T3 to have additional memory installed in order for them to load. for details on how to add memory to your T3, please refer to Adding Memory to the Tyros 3

For any references to buttons on the T3's panel, please refer to Wally's Panel Button Chart
