Hi all, noticed a page called "music database" on yamaha e353 manual showing only abbreviated names. Wonder if anyone has the list of full names, and even better the music scores for them:). Thanks a lot.

Those are not "abbreviated" names. They are "encrypted" names. The point is to give you an idea what song a particular style is intended for, or will work well with, without inviting infringement legal action from the song's original owner, by using its full name on a piece of publicly marketed hardware. All of the PSR/Tyros models, and the new Genos, that use a Music Finder Database, suffer from this, but all of the higher end models have databases that are user replaceable, so that users can substitute more understandable data (song names) of their own. There were a couple of manual translation lists in the "E Series" sub-forum over on the PSR Tutorial Forum for the PSR-E433 and E-443, but I don't remember ever seeing a list for any of the E-350 or E-360 model lines. Even if there were, they would be gone now, as a recent ill-handled server migration over there wiped out all of their forum thread data that was over 120 days old, so right now, their ongoing knowledge-base is pretty shallow - pretty much like starting over from scratch.

The typical solution to this is to find a forum that has a fair number of owners of that particular model, and starting a collaborative effort to devise a translation list. That is how they came up with the E-433 and E-443 lists over on PSR Tutorial. One or two individuals came up with the initial lists, and posted them, then other owners joined in to round them out.

All keyboards have this type of cryptic naming.

Its twofold, 1) to protect the manufacturer from falling foul of the differing copyright laws that exist in the import country 2) if they were to import a keyboard with say “smoke on the water” as a named track they they would have to pay import duty on that song and on all the other correctly named songs.

At least that is what the Rep of a keyboard manufacturer advised.

My local Korg supplied an update which overwrote the cryptics with the actual names, was that not a great action on the part of Korg UK?

A couple of years ago i asked the same question here for my psr s650 and
@goldi5210 was kind enough to sort me out.
I have tried to relate his .zip file to your psr 353. No luck . . Sorry!

Some of these on my titles on my mdb may relate to yours. Have a look.
Otherwise @goldi5210 may chip in and tell you where to locate the .zip file.

Here is the link, on this forum, to Goldi's file for the PSR-S650. It looks like it might be usable for most of the recent PSR-E models, or at least give you a good start at devising your own list for your specific model. It is an XLS file (Excel spreadsheet), so you will need Microsoft Office Excel or one of the Office alternatives (Apache Open Office, etc) to open it.

Welcome to the forums, @Artq, and thank you very much for that list!

Some of those correspondences seem obvious, but others I would never have guessed based on their names. For instance, I would have guessed that "IWasBorn" might be "Born in the USA."

And some of those names seem like auditory puzzles, such as "AtonalFl" for "Eternal Flame." Talk about clever!
