Welcome, Allan!

I think you'll enjoy your new PSR-S970.

Are you planning to use it as is, or are you thinking of expanding its voices and styles with some expansion packs?

There are usually a few expansion packs that are free to download and install, but sometimes a given pack will be free for a limited time. It can be a good idea to grab any free packs while they're free, even if you're not particularly interested in them at the time, just in case you develop an interest in them later but they're no longer free!

Also, occasionally a pack will be free on one Yamaha site (such as their European site), but not on another (such as their USA site), so it can be a good idea to visit their various sites every once in a while to see if anything new has been made available for free.

I've never had a Yamaha model that can load expansion packs, so I'm not absolutely certain-- but I believe that sounds correct. And if I'm not mistaken, you can also use the Yamaha Expansion Manager to create your own custom voices from sound samples if you feel up to that sort of thing.

I am more than happy to take one step at a time I have no interest in going out to play only for friends and family l just love to be able to get a tune out any of the instruments l have owned. music is for me a way of relaxing these days l just look in my song list for the guitar and follow the chords and add the melody by working it out in my little brain lol. the main reason l bought the keyboard is because l am not able to go into my workshop during the winter months as l have a back problem which is effected by the cold, during the summer months l make full sized carved rocking horses http://[url=https://flic.kr/p/E8gCEf][img]https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4529/25023822658_350a73583f_o.jpg1[/url] by Allan Sharman, on Flickr[/IMG]

You can upload a jpg or gif file directly to a message using the upload a file link and inserting the image into your message with the insert button.

Or...

You could link to a photo on another site by using the HTML tags surrounding the URL of the image.

If you simply want to post a link to a web page you can always simply copy and paste the full link into the message as normal.

Love your horse Allan.
Nice work indeed. Sad that your back prevents you making those now.

Well at least making music is a high priority in life.

Love music, love life, Ray;)
