Style Characteristics
The Style type and its defining characteristics are indicated on the Preset
Style icon.
• Pro (P): These Styles provide professional and exciting arrangements
combined with perfect playability. The resulting accompaniment exactly

Style file compatibility
The CVP-509/505/503/501 uses the SFF GE file format (page 9). The CVP-
509/505/503/501 can play back existing SFF files, but they will be saved in
the SFF GE format when the file is saved (or pasted) in the CVP-509/505/
503/501. Please keep in mind that the saved file can only be played back on
instruments that are compatible with the SFF GE format.
