Special Features
Natural Piano Voice
Page 23
Setting Up
The DGX-650 features an amazingly realistic piano Voice (“Natural! Grand Piano”; Voice 001) meticulously
sampled from a concert grand piano—fantastic for playing not only classical compositions but also piano pieces
in any style. No matter what instrument settings have been made, you can instantly call up the Piano Voice by simply pressing the [PORTABLE GRAND] button.
Graded Hammer Standard Keyboard
Thanks to our experience as the world’s leading manufacturer of acoustic pianos, we’ve developed a keyboard
with action that’s virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. Just as on a traditional acoustic piano, the keys of
the lower notes have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. The keyboard’s
sensitivity can even be adjusted to match your playing style. This Graded Hammer technology gives the DGX-650
remarkably authentic touch in a lightweight instrument.
Amazingly Realistic and Dynamic Sounds
Page 23
Yamaha’s authentic Voices (especially the highly acclaimed Live!, Sweet! and Cool! Voices) deliver incredibly
natural and dynamic sound—with all the nuances of the original instrument, from delicate to powerful.
Play Along with Styles
Page 28
The DGX-650 also has complete and fully automatic accompaniment features with the Styles. These Styles provide the equivalent of a full backing band covering wide variety of genres—from waltz and swing to 8-beat and
euro-trance, plus much more. Select a Style that matches the music you want to play, or experiment with new
Styles to expand your musical horizons. And if it’s difficult to select the right Style from the huge variety available, use the Style Recommender function, which calls up a list of suggested Styles, based on a sample rhythm
you play. Also, this instrument features a Smart Chord function, allowing you to simply press single keys, and yet
play various chord progressions that authentically match the music genre and key you specify—giving you even
greater enjoyment from the Styles!
Easy Performance with Music Notation Display
Page 37
When you play back a Song, the corresponding score is shown on the display. This is a great way to learn how to
read music. If the Song contains lyric and chord data, the lyrics and chords also appear in the score.
USB TO DEVICE
Page 70
Connect a USB flash memory device to the USB TO DEVICE terminal on the instrument, and save or load registrations, and User Songs that you’ve created on the instrument, as well as read data from the device, such as MIDI
files or Style files.
Also, Audio files (.wav) stored to USB flash memory can be played back on the instrument. Moreover, you can
record your performance as Audio data to a USB flash memory device. For more on Audio playing and recording,
see pages 34 and 40.

Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical
shock, short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the
following:
Power supply/AC power adaptor
Water warning
• Do not place the power cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators. Also,
do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, or place heavy objects on
it.
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required voltage
is printed on the name plate of the instrument.
• Use the specified adaptor (page 81) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in
damage to the instrument or overheating.
• Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet
conditions, place on it any containers (such as vases, bottles or glasses)
containing liquids which might spill into any openings. If any liquid such as
water seeps into the instrument, turn off the power immediately and unplug the
power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the instrument inspected by qualified
Yamaha service personnel.
• Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have
accumulated on it.
Fire warning
• Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit. A burning item may fall
over and cause a fire.
Do not open
• This instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. Do not open the instrument
or attempt to disassemble or modify the internal components in any way. If it
should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it
inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
If you notice any abnormality
• When one of the following problems occur, immediately turn off the power switch
and disconnect the electric plug from the outlet. Then have the device inspected
by Yamaha service personnel.
- The power cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged.
- It emits unusual smells or smoke.
- Some object has been dropped into the instrument.
- There is a sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument.
CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage
to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Power supply/AC power adaptor
Location
• Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector.
Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating in the
outlet.
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally
fall over.
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold
the plug itself and not the cord. Pulling by the cord can damage it.
• When transporting or moving the instrument, always use two or more people.
Attempting to lift the instrument by yourself may damage your back, result in
other injury, or cause damage to the instrument itself.
• Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the instrument is not to be used for
extended periods of time, or during electrical storms.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables, to prevent damage
to the cables or injury to anyone who might trip over them.
• When setting up the product, make sure that the AC outlet you are using is easily
accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off the power
switch and disconnect the plug from the outlet. Even when the power switch is
turned off, electricity is still flowing to the product at the minimum level. When
you are not using the product for a long time, make sure to unplug the power
cord from the wall AC outlet.
Assembly
• Read carefully the attached documentation explaining the assembly process.
Failure to assemble the instrument in the proper sequence might result in
damage to the instrument or even injury.
• Use only the stand specified for the instrument. When attaching the stand or rack,
use the provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause damage to the internal

Connections
Handling caution
• Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the
power for all components. Before turning the power on or off for all components,
set all volume levels to minimum.

gradually raise the volume controls while playing the instrument to set the
desired listening level.
• Do not insert a finger or hand in any gaps on the instrument.
• Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the panel.
This could cause physical injury to you or others, damage to the instrument or
other property, or operational failure.
Setting Up
• Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and do not
use excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.
• Do not use the instrument/device or headphones for a long period of time at a
high or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing
loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a
physician.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use.
Even when the [
] (Standby/On) switch is in standby status (display is off), electricity is still flowing to the instrument at the minimum level.
When you are not using the instrument for a long time, make sure you unplug the power cord from the wall AC outlet.

40°C, or 41° – 104°F.)
• Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might discolor the panel or keyboard.
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.
• During extreme changes in temperature or humidity, condensation may occur and water may collect on the surface of the instrument. If water is left, the
wooden parts may absorb the water and be damaged. Make sure to wipe any water off immediately with a soft cloth.
 Saving data
• Some data items (page 49) are automatically saved as backup data in the internal memory even if you turn the power off. Saved data may be lost due to
malfunction or incorrect operation. Save important data to external device such as a USB flash memory (pages 73–75).
• The recorded Songs are lost when you turn off the power of the instrument without saving. It occurs also when the power is turned off by Auto Power Off
function (page 20). Save the recorded data to the instrument.

CAUTION
2
• Unplug the AC Power Adaptor when not using the instrument, or during electrical storms, to avoid the possibility of
physical injury to you or others, or damage to the instrument or other property.

CAUTION
• Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the power of all the components. Also, before turning any components on or off, make sure to set all volume levels to minimum (0). Otherwise, damage to the components, electrical shock, or even permanent hearing loss may occur.
Connecting a Footswitch (SUSTAIN Jack)
NOTE
• The sustain function does not affect the Split Voice (page 24).
• Make sure that the footswitch plug is properly connected to
the SUSTAIN jack before turning on the power.
• Do not press the footswitch while turning the power on. Doing
this changes the recognized polarity of the footswitch, resulting in reversed footswitch operation.
The sustain function lets you produce a natural sustain
as you play by pressing a footswitch. Plug the supplied footswitch into this jack and use it to switch sustain on and off.
Damper Resonance
This function simulates the sustain sound produced
with the damper pedal on a grand piano. If you want
to use this function, select Voice 001 (page 23), then
press the Footswitch. This function can be turned off
via the FUNCTION display (page 68).

Setting Up
Connecting Headphones or External Audio Equipment (PHONES/OUTPUT Jack)
Setting Up
CAUTION
• Do not use the instrument/device or headphones for a long
period of time at a high or uncomfortable volume level, since
this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any
hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.
NOTICE
Headphones
Any pair of stereo headphones with a standard stereo
phone plug can be plugged in here for convenient
monitoring. The speakers are automatically shut off
when a plug is inserted into this jack. This setting can
be changed so that speaker sound is always on regardless whether a plug is inserted or not (page 55).
External Audio Equipment
• When the instrument’s sound is output to an external
device, first turn on the power to the instrument, then to
the external device. Reverse this order when you turn the
power off. If the instrument’s power is automatically turned
off via the Auto Power Off function (page 20), first turn off
the external device, then turn on the power to the instrument then the external device again.
NOTICE
• Do not route the output from the PHONES/OUTPUT jack to
the AUX IN jack. If you make this connection, the signal
input at the AUX IN jack is output from the PHONES/OUTPUT jack. These connections could result in a feedback
loop that will make normal performance impossible, and
may even damage both pieces of equipment.
NOTE
• Use audio cables and adaptor cables having no (zero) resistance.

Pedal Unit functions
Damper Pedal (Right)
Pressing this pedal will sustain notes longer. Releasing this
pedal immediately stops (damps) any sustained notes. A “halfpedal” function of this pedal creates partial sustain effects,
depending on how far down you press the pedal. When using
both a footswitch and pedal unit, the last effect applied takes priority.
Damper Resonance
This function simulates the sustain sound produced with a
damper pedal on a grand piano. This effect is added when
the Damper pedal is pressed for Voice 001. You can turn this
function on or off via the FUNCTION display (page 68).
Sostenuto Pedal (Center)
If you play a note or notes on the keyboard and press the sostenuto pedal while the note(s) are held, those notes will sustain as
long as you hold the pedal (as if the damper pedal had been
pressed) but all subsequently played notes will not be sustained.
This makes it possible to sustain a note or notes, for example,
while other notes are played “staccato.”
Soft Pedal (Left)
The soft pedal reduces the volume and slightly changes the timbre of notes played while the pedal is pressed. The soft pedal
will not affect notes that are already playing when it is pressed.
18
DGX-650 Owner’s Manual
If you press and hold the
damper pedal here, all the
notes shown will be sustained.
If you press and hold the
sostenuto pedal here, only
the notes held at this timing
will be sustained.

If you want to fully enjoy playing in various Styles but don’t know how to play the appropriate chords, Smart
Chord is very useful. This function lets you control Styles with just a single finger as long as you know the key of
your playing music, even if you don’t know any chord fingering such as major, minor, diminished and so on.
Appropriate chords suited for the music genre will sound whenever you press a single note, as if you were playing
the “right” chords.

Recording Your Performance
This instrument allows you to record your performance in the following two methods.
• Song recording (MIDI recording)
With this method, recorded performances are saved to the instrument as a User Song, in SMF (format 0) MIDI
file. If you want to re-record a specific section or edit parameters such as Voice, use this method. Also if you want
to record your performance to each track one by one, execute “Recording to a Specified Track” of the Song
recording method. Since a User Song can be converted to an Audio file after recording (page 75), you may want to
use Song recording (with individual track recording) to first create a complex arrangement you would not otherwise be able to play live, then convert it to an Audio file. Up to approximately 30,000 notes can be recorded for
one User Song if you record only to the tracks [R/1]–[5].
• Audio recording (page 45)
Basic Guide
With this method, recorded performances are saved to a USB flash memory as an Audio file. Recording is done
without designating the recorded part. Since it is saved in stereo WAV format of normal CD quality resolution
(44.1kHz/16bit) by default, it can be transmitted to and played on portable music players by using a computer.
This instrument allows you to record up to 80 minutes per single recording.

Basic Guide
With Song Recording, you can create a Song consisting of six tracks (1–5 and A) by recording your performance to each track one by one. In recording a
piano piece, for example, you can record the righthand part to Track 1 then record the left-hand part to
Track 2, allowing you create a complete piece which
may be difficult to play live with both hands together.
To record a performance with Style playback, for
example, record the Style playback to Track A, then
record melodies to Track 1 while listening to the
already recorded Style playback. In this way, you can
create an entire Song which would otherwise be difficult, or even impossible, to play live.

Appendix
Troubleshooting
For the Instrument
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
When the instrument is turned on or off, a popping
sound is temporarily produced.
This is normal and indicates that the instrument is receiving electrical
power.
The power is automatically turned off.
This is normal and due to the Auto Power Off function. If necessary, set
the parameter of the Auto Power Off function (page 20).
When using a mobile phone, noise is produced.
Using a mobile phone in close proximity to the instrument may produce
interference. To prevent this, turn off the mobile phone or use it further
away from the instrument.
Noise is heard from the instrument’s speakers or
headphones when using the instrument with an
iPhone/iPad application.
When you use the instrument along with an iPhone/iPad application, we
recommend that you set “Airplane Mode” to “ON” on your iPhone/iPad in
order to avoid noise caused by communication.
There is no sound even when the keyboard is
played or when a Style or Song is being played
back.
Check that nothing is connected to the PHONES/OUTPUT jack on the
rear panel. When a plug is connected to this jack, no sound is output.
Check the Local Control on/off setting. (See page 68.)
Is the FILE CONTROL display showing? The instrument’s keyboard,
etc., will not produce any sound while the FILE CONTROL display is
showing. Press the [EXIT] button to return to the MAIN display.
Playing keys in the right hand area of the keyboard
does not produce any sound.
When using the Dictionary function (page 62), the keys in the right hand
area are used only for entering the chord root and type.
The Style or Song does not play back when the
[START/STOP] button is pressed.
Is External Clock set to ON? Make sure External Clock is set to OFF;
refer to “External Clock” on page 68.
The Style does not sound properly.
Make sure that the Style Volume (page 60) is set to an appropriate level.
Is the Split Point set at an appropriate key for the chords you are playing? Set the Split Point at an appropriate key (page 61).
Is the “ACMP” indicator showing in the display? If it is not showing press
the [ACMP ON/OFF] button so that it does show.
Appendix
78
No rhythm accompaniment plays when the [START/
STOP] button is pressed after selecting style number 165 or a style between 178–195 (Pianist).
This is not a malfunction. Style number 165 and style numbers 178–195
(Pianist) have no rhythm parts, so no rhythm will play. The other parts
will begin playing when you play a chord in the accompaniment range of
the keyboard if the ACMP is turned on.
Not all of the voices seem to sound, or the sound
seems to be cut off.
The instrument is polyphonic up to a maximum of 128 notes. If the Dual
Voice or Split Voice is being used and a Style or Song is playing back at
the same time, some notes/sounds may be omitted (or “stolen”) from the
accompaniment or Song.
The footswitch (for sustain) seems to produce the
opposite effect. For example, pressing the footswitch cuts off the sound and releasing it sustains
the sounds.
The polarity of the footswitch is reversed. Make sure that the footswitch
plug is properly connected to the SUSTAIN jack before turning on the
power.
The sound of the Voice changes from note to note.
This is normal. The AWM tone generation method uses multiple recordings (samples) of an instrument across the range of the keyboard; thus,
the actual sound of the Voice may be slightly different from note to note.
The appropriate display does not appear when the
[SONG/AUDIO], [STYLE], or [VOICE] button is
pressed.
Is another display showing? Try pressing the [EXIT] button to return to
the MAIN display, and then pressing one of the mentioned buttons.
The ACMP indicator does not appear when the
[ACMP ON/OFF] button is pressed.
Always press the [STYLE] button first when you are going to use any
Style-related function.
The “Over Current” message is shown in the upper
left area of the MAIN display and the USB device
does not respond.
Communication with the USB device has been shut down because of
the overcurrent to the USB device. Disconnect the device from the USB
TO DEVICE terminal, then turn on the power of the instrument.
The Headphone sound is too low.
Make sure the parameter of “Output Gain Level” is set to “Headphones”
(page 55).

Area. YAMAHA suggests that you read the Limited Warranty thoroughly, and invites you to contact your authorized YAMAHA dealer or
YAMAHA Customer Service if you have any questions.
