Is there a List of Global Settings??
Things you set under the MENU LIST apply globally — From the [MENU] button, you can configure various parameters and functions that affect the whole system of this instrument. The settings will be stored in this instrument. See page 36-41

Things you set under the SETTINGS LIST apply to each Live Set program individually — From the [SETTINGS] button, you can configure and store the various settings of the currently selected Live Set Sound. The settings made here will all be stored in the Live Set Sound. See pages 42-50

I want to know what the Update changes before I do it..Like will it takeaway the Pitchbend that now works on the Organ patches..
read the documentation that is included with the updater download. It’s an UPdate, not a DOWNdate, haha!

Hope you’re safe! Stay well!

Version 1.00 to 1.02
_ Reduced the possibility of clipping noise.
_ Changed the default value of the [MENU] -> "General" -> "I/O Volume" -> "Output" from -6 dB to 0 dB.
_ Fixed other minor problems.

I have a related question about updates and expansion. Yamaha is advertising that the YC61 has the new "OS Stage" similar to the CP 73/88 series which clearly presents that voice expansion is expected for that series. Sorry if this was asked before but does this mean that the internal memory also on the YC61 has availability to add new AWM2 voices in future updates? Also, should we expect editor software in the future granting dashboard access and perhaps some embedded access as well such as FM programming to some degree? This would be icing on the cake if either or both of these is a possibility not to mention an enormous selling point not yet specified.
