I had the same basic question... I've since downloaded Finale Allegro (Free 30-day trial) and managed to get my song into it, but the process is a little complex.... you can't just import the midi file; you have to stream the song into the software. Once you have installed the software and opened it, and connected the USB cable, then, in order to stream it into the software, first press the SONG button. Enter the number for the user song you created (031-035) then hit FUNCTION and scroll until you reach SongOut. Press the "+" to turn it on. Then scroll to InitSend and press "+"
Then use hyperscribe (follow instructions from software manual) to stream it into the software.
When Streaming, other Function settings... Set ExtClock to OFF, and PCmode to OFF.
To start the streaming, Press START on your keyboard. If you can hear the song play on your computer, then you are on the right track!

My original question:
I've installed the midi driver and the musicsoft downloader, but all I can download is the bup file which is proprietorily unopenable. I've scoured pianoworld.com and yamaha-keyboard-guide.com and didn't find any answers; I just found my same question asked by many other users.

Jeremy,
Thank you for your inquiry.
To create standard midi files, You need to purchase sequencing software such as Cubase for your computer [I downloaded Finale Allegro 30-trial on finalemusic.com], download the latest USB-Midi driver here: http://www.global.yamaha.com/download/usb_midi/index.html, connect to the computer using a USB cable and then play the songs in real time into the software.
To record an audio or wave file, you will need to obtain an audio interface, such as the Yamaha Audiogram and plug into it via the instrument's headphone jack with an instrument cable. The interface comes with Cubase AI and you can use the software to record wave files, which can then be burned to a CD.

http://www.tweakheadz.com/how_to_get_started_with_midi.html
MIDI is made of Controller and Note DATA, not Audio.
IMPORTANT: MIDI works by sending NOTE ON and NOTE OFF events down a midi cable as well as timing information and controller (knobs, wheels, and sliders) information. MIDI does not send sound, or audio down the MIDI cable.
Understand that MIDI is NOT an audio signal.
The sound of the keyboard or module does not go down the MIDI cable, only these computer encoded "events" do. What is an "event?" It's all just numbers. But not the large blocks of numbers that make up an audio waveform. MIDI events are just ones and zeros that say when you pressed down which key (a note ON event), how hard you pressed it (velocity number), when you let the key up (a note OFF event), pressed the next key, moved a knob (controller data), changed a program. The cool thing is that all this MIDI data, once recorded, is fully, totally, completely editable, malleable, changeable, transformable, re-assignable, erasable, replaceable and it all happens on the edit screens of your sequencer.
Thank you,
JH

    THANKS. But is there a way to save the midi files along with the recorded style. I've been able to stream the midi but I am not getting the file in the same format along with the style. The styles and chord variations are all converted into keyboard notes and there's no clarity for the resultant midi files. Can anybody tell me a way to record the midi file and hear it in the same way in which i have recorded it..? :o

To play the file you must send the file into the same model instrument. The file is a proprietary back up format.

If you want to play the MUSIC on your computer the EXPORT it as a MIDI file that can be played by such programs as Van Basco's and others.

You MAY be able to export it via a USB or you may have to use a MIDI interface cable and adapter.

    You would need to play the file on the Yamaha instrument and at the same time use a MIDI interface to the computer to capture the file as a .MID file. Then that file can be played.

    You should be able to export the .MID format into a MIDI recording software such as Cakewalk, Cubase, or Sonar... you do need a program that can edit MIDI files.

HOW CAN I PLAY BUP FILE IN MY COMPUTER WHICH I TOOK FROM MY YAMAHA I425


The BUP file is proprietary format for each model Yamaha keyboard. Your best solution is to export via MIDI interface and use that format.

How can I transfer a 06PK61.bup file to a Yamaha YPT400 keyboard?


The BUP files are yamaha's proprietary back up file format.
Having the appropriate drivers installed, once you make the usb connection from computer to keyboard (yamaha), you should now be able to navigate the Yamaha's files as if it were a drive on your computer. I recommend placing the file in a directory with similar files.
Make a backup beforehand to avoid and problems.

I have same problem. I have recorded my performance on keyboard (PSR I425) when i transfered it to PC it's in .bup format. and the file is not getting played on PC. how should i solve it?


Transfer the data in MIDI format. The BUP format is a proprietary format to the keyboard and can ONLY be played by the keyboard. Either dump the data as MIDI format or using a MIDI interface send it to the PC or lastly, capture the audio using an audio interface on the PC.

How to store music we play on yamaha psr i425??? and how to transfer dat to pc? plz help


You will need the CDROM that should have come with the keyboard when you purchased it. On it will be the drivers that need to be on the computer for it to use the usb. The link to the manual is here:http://www2.yamaha.co.jp/manual/pdf/emi/english/port/psri425_en_om_a0.pdf Please look at page 86. If you don't have the CDROM you may be able to download what you need by contacting Yamaha by email through this link and asking:http://www.global.yamaha.com/support/contact.php I hope this helps.

I have yamaha PSR-i425 keyboard.can i conect it with my pc to play midi files stored in computer memory?


Yes. You will need to have a MIDI interface on your OC and also select in the sounds control panel of windows that you are using the external synth. The MIDI will expect the PSR to respond to the "general MIDI" assignments.

I have PSR-i425 Keyboard from Yamaha. I stored the music piece played by my in the keyboard memory. After that I downloaded the stored file to my PC The file is in this format: 06PK61.BUP. Kindly tell me...


The BUP is an archiving format proprietary to the Yamaha apparently containg styles as well as note data and conversion is really not easy.

If you can get the instrument itself to spill out MIDI and use a MIDI interface and software to capture it on the PC is the best plan.

Once it is in SMF format you can play it on the PC.
