I’m wondering if someone has a cheat sheet with sequential steps laid out showing how to solve these three issues:

1. How to make a program change in a SMF I loaded into the sequencer of my XS7 (SMF created in my computer using MuseScore).  I assign the voice I want but when I hit rewind and play, the voice reverts back to an unwanted default voice.  My understanding is that a program change is what fixes that, but I don’t know the steps to do that.  I’ve tried but with no luck.

2. This issue is similar to above except that the voice I want to assign is a “click” from a drum kit to track 10 not a standard voice such as piano.  I understand this is a little trickier because it’s not just the whole voice but a certain key on the keyboard that plays the particular “click” sound from a drum kit that I want to assign to track 10. I know the drum kit and the note on the piano that plays the sound I want, but again, I’m unable to figure this out.

3.  Once I get the two issues above resolved, I want to be able to play along with the SMF.  I’ve created a Performance that I want to use to play along with the SMF.  I understand I actually play along with the SMF while in Song mode not Performance or Voice mode, but I don’t know how to put the voices from the Performance into the SMF in Song mode. 
*I also want to play along with a SMF using a single Voice but I assume the process is the same as from playing along from a Performance. 
Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi,
Thanks for sending the article.  It seems to relate somewhat to what I’m trying to do but I’m not sure if it pertains to specifically what I want.  I’m not sure because it’s way too complicated and doesn’t jive with info I was told by a Yamaha the support guy a while back.  I’m hoping for a “recipe” type set of step-by-step instructions where I don’t have to understand why something is working, but just follow the steps and it solves the problem.  Thanks anyhow!
