PSR Style Database / Midi Database
Free download of current version

"PSR Style Database/Midi Database V4.6"   Version 4.6    (Size: 1 MB)

runs on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.


Important note when upgrading from version 3.x

Files used for importing data with the "Import Style Data/Import Midi Data" function are not compatible between version 3.x and 4.x. If they have been created with the "Export Style Data" function (e.g. for backup purpose) they have to be recreated with the current program version.

If import files have been created manually, without using my program (I assume that only very few people have done this, as this is an undocumented feature), you can contact me for additional hints to convert them to the new version before upgrading.
