Yes, but how you do it depends on what you want to do, because there's no function for deleting individual styles.

The simplest way to delete all of the User Styles is to do a Backup Clear-- not a Flash Clear, which will delete any files you've transferred to the keyboard's internal storage with the Yamaha Musicsoft Downloader program or (if you use an iPad) with the Yamaha MusicSoft Manager app. The only problem with doing a Backup Clear is that it will also delete any User Songs you've recorded and any Registrations you've saved.

Another way to delete all of the User Styles is to first delete them as above, then either save a User File to a USB flash drive, or save a Backup File in the Musicsoft utility. When you want to delete all of User Styles again, load the User File or restore the Backup File. This is very similar to the Backup Clear method, but has the advantage that if any User Songs or Registrations were saved in the User File or Backup File then they will be restored-- but any User Songs and Registrations that were currently in memory will be replaced with the ones in the User File or Backup File, so this method can also be problematic.

The best way to delete an individual User Style is to load a "blank" style file. When you delete all User Styles using the Backup Clear method, the keyboard loads a blank style file into each User Style; its style name is "No data " but it actually does contain a little bit of data-- namely, a steady beat. I've extracted this "No data " style from a User File and saved it to a style file, and if you transfer it to your keyboard's internal memory with the Musicsoft utility, or save it on a USB flash drive, then you'll be able to load it to any of the User Style numbers when you want to delete some other style file that you'd previously loaded to that User Style number. Try it and see!

You can download the "No data .STY" file from the second post in the following thread:
