Live-Styler: A Powerful MIDI Plugin Host for Windows

Do you want to play musical styles created for Yamaha PSR keyboards on your PC? Do you want to use your favorite VST plugins to enhance your sound? Do you want to perform live with a MIDI keyboard and a computer? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you might be interested in Live-Styler, a software application that can do all of these things and more.


What is Live-Styler?

Live-Styler is an audio plugin host for Windows that can host VST plugins. It was developed by Norbert Stellberg, a German musician and programmer who passed away in 2013. Live-Styler gives you the ability to play musical styles created for Yamaha PSR musical instruments via MIDI. You can play up to 8 instruments at the same time with up to 5 soundcards. The program is dedicated to real-time live performance with a MIDI keyboard connected to PC; a connectivity enjoyed by auto accompaniment PSR keyboards. Live-Styler is not a sequencer. The program introduces new possibilities and does not cross perform to other software applications and utilities available on the market, which deal with Yamaha PSR styles and MIDI.

What are the features of Live-Styler?

Live-Styler has many features that make it a versatile and powerful tool for playing and creating music. Some of the main features are:

  • You can load and play any Yamaha PSR style file (.sty) or any MIDI file (.mid) as a style. You can also create your own styles using the built-in Style Editor or import styles from other sources.

  • You can assign any VST plugin to any instrument or channel in the style. You can also use the built-in effects such as reverb, chorus, delay, compressor, equalizer, etc. You can save and load your plugin settings as presets.

  • You can control various parameters of the style such as tempo, volume, transpose, variation, fill-in, intro, ending, etc. using your MIDI keyboard or the graphical user interface. You can also use MIDI controllers to adjust the plugin parameters in real-time.

  • You can record your performance as a MIDI file or as an audio file (wav or mp3). You can also play along with any audio file (wav or mp3) using the built-in Audio Player.

  • You can customize the look and feel of the program using skins and fonts. You can also change the language of the user interface using language files.

How to get Live-Styler?

Live-Styler is no longer available for purchase or download from the official website because the developer died in 2013. However, you can still find some copies of the program on some online platforms such as [OpenSea] or [The GateKeepers]. These copies are usually in the form of compressed files (.rar) that contain the installation files and the license key. You will need a program like WinRAR or 7-Zip to extract them. Be careful when downloading files from unknown sources as they may contain viruses or malware.

Are there any alternatives to Live-Styler?
