PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
WARNING
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
• 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 (PA-5D, PA-5C or an equivalent recommended by
Yamaha) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument
or overheating.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have
accumulated on it.
• Do not place the AC adaptor cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators,
and do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, place heavy objects
on it, or place it in a position where anyone could walk on, trip over, or roll
anything over it.
Do not open
• Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or
modify them in any way. The instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. If it
should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it
inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet
conditions, or place containers on it containing liquids which might spill into
any openings.
• Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
Fire warning
• Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit.
A burning item may fall over and cause a fire.
If you notice any abnormality
• If the AC adaptor cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is a
sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument, or if any unusual smells or
smoke should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off the power switch,
disconnect the adaptor plug from the outlet, and have the instrument inspected
by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
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
Battery
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold
the plug itself and not the cord.
• Always make sure all batteries are inserted in conformity with the +/- polarity
markings. Failure to do so might result in overheating, fire, or battery fluid
leakage.
• Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during
electrical storms.
• 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.

DGX-505/305 Owner’s Manual
• Always replace all batteries at the same time. Do not use new batteries together
with old ones. Also, do not mix battery types, such as alkaline batteries with
manganese batteries, or batteries from different makers, or different types of
batteries from the same maker, since this can cause overheating, fire, or battery
fluid leakage.
1/2
• Do not dispose of batteries in fire.
Maintenance
• Do not attempt to recharge batteries that are not intended to be charged.
• When the batteries run out, or if the instrument is not to be used for a long time,
remove the batteries from the instrument to prevent possible leakage of the
battery fluid.
• Keep batteries away from children.
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners,
solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.
Handling caution
• Do not insert a finger or hand in any gaps on the instrument.
• If the batteries do leak, avoid contact with the leaked fluid. If the battery fluid
should come in contact with your eyes, mouth, or skin, wash immediately with
water and consult a doctor. Battery fluid is corrosive and may possibly cause
loss of sight or chemical burns.
• Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the panel
or keyboard. If this happens, turn off the power immediately and unplug the
power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the instrument inspected by qualified
Yamaha service personnel.
• Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might
discolor the panel or keyboard.
Location
• Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme cold or
heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day) to
prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration or damage to the internal
components.
• Do not use the instrument in the vicinity of a TV, radio, stereo equipment,
mobile phone, or other electric devices. Otherwise, the instrument, TV, or radio
may generate noise.
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally
fall over.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other cables.
• 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 components or result in the instrument falling over.
• 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 operate the instrument 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.
Saving data
Saving and backing up your data
• The panel settings and some other types of data (page 49) will be lost if the
power is turned off before they are saved. Be sure to save data you want to keep
to the internal Flash Memory (page 49) before turning off the power. Saved data
may be lost due to malfunction or incorrect operation. Save important data to a
SmartMedia Card (see page 75).
Connections
• 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. Also, be sure to set the volumes
of all components at their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume
controls while playing the instrument to set the desired listening level.
Backing up the SmartMedia
• To protect against data loss through media damage, we recommend that you
save your important data onto two SmartMedia.
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.
When using a power adaptor, even when the power switch is in the “STANDBY” position, 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 AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet.
Make sure to discard used batteries according to local regulations.

Special features of the DGX-505/305
■ Performance assistant technology
page 16
Play along with a song on the instrument’s keyboard and produce a perfect
performance every time … even if you play wrong notes! All you have to do
is play on the keyboard – alternately on the left- and right-hand ranges of the
keyboard, for example – and you’ll sound like a pro as long as you play in
time with the music.
And if you can’t play with both hands, you can still play the melody simply
by tapping one key.
■ Play a Variety Of Instrument Voices
All you need is
one finger!
page 23
With the DGX-505/305, the instrument voice that sounds when you play the
keyboard can be changed to violin, flute, harp, or any of an extensive range of
voices. You can change the mood of a song written for piano, for example, by
using violin to play it instead. Experience a whole new world of musical variety.
■ Learning music is fun
page 39
This instrument includes a range of songs covering a variety of genres that are
enjoyable to listen to, or to play along with. You can start practicing with just
one hand, and you can even practice at your own tempo, one note at a time as
slowly as you like, until you are able to play at full speed. Song playback will
automatically follow your tempo. You can also use songs you have downloaded from the Internet for lessons, so your musical resources are essentially
unlimited! The instrument will even evaluate and grade your performance for
you!
■ Easy Performance with Music Notation Display
When you play back a song, the corresponding score will be shown on the
display as the song plays. This is a great way to learn how to read music. If
the song contains lyric and chord data*, the lyrics and chords will also appear
on the score display.

Setting Up
Make sure to do the following operations BEFORE turning on the power.
Power Requirements
Although the instrument will run either from an optional AC adaptor or batteries, Yamaha recommends use of an AC
adaptor whenever possible. An AC adaptor is more environmentally friendly than batteries and does not deplete
resources.
■ Using an AC Power Adaptor
Make sure that the [STANDBY/ON] switch of the
instrument is set to STANDBY.
WARNING
• Use ONLY a Yamaha PA-5D, PA-5C AC Power Adaptor (or other
adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha) to power your
instrument from the AC mains. The use of other adaptors may
result in irreparable damage to both the adaptor and the
instrument.
Connect the AC adaptor (PA-5D, PA-5C or other
adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha) to the
power supply jack.
Plug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.
CAUTION
• Unplug the AC Power Adaptor when not using the instrument,
or during electrical storms.
CAUTION
PA-5D or
PA-5C
For battery operation the instrument requires six 1.5V
“D” size, R20P (LR20) or equivalent batteries. (Alkaline
batteries are recommended.) When battery power
becomes too low for proper operation, a “LOW BATTERY!!” message flashes in the upper right of the display. As soon as this message appears, make sure to
replace all batteries, following the precautions listed
below.
If necessary, also make sure to save all important User
data (see pages 49 and 75), since custom panel settings are lost when the batteries are removed.
AC outlet
• Use only manganese or alkaline batteries for this instrument.
Other types of batteries (including rechargeable batteries) may
have sudden drops of power when battery power becomes low,
possibly resulting in loss of data in the flash memory / SmartMedia™ card and the need to re-format the card.
• Make sure to install the batteries in the same direction, maintaining the correct polarity (as shown). Incorrect battery installation
may result in heat, fire and/or leaking of corrosive chemicals.
■ Using Batteries
Open the battery compartment cover located on the
instrument’s bottom panel.
Insert the six new batteries, being careful to follow
the polarity markings on the inside of the compartment.
Replace the compartment cover, making sure that it
locks firmly in place.
NOTE
• Connecting the AC power adaptor automatically supplies power from
the adaptor and overrides battery power, even when batteries are
installed.
10
DGX-505/305 Owner’s Manual
• When the batteries run down, replace them with a complete set of
six new batteries. NEVER mix old and new batteries. Do not use
different kinds of batteries (e.g. alkaline and manganese) at the
same time.
• If the instrument is not to be in use for a long time, remove the batteries from it, in order to prevent possible fluid leakage from the
battery.
• Please use the power adaptor when transferring data to SmartMedia or flash memory. Batteries (including rechargeable types) can
be drained rapidly by this type of operation. If the batteries do
become drained during a data transfer, both the data being transferred and the data currently in the transfer destination will be
lost.
CAUTION
• Don’t open the battery compartment cover while the instrument is
resting on the keyboard stand. The batteries can fall out of the battery compartment and possibly cause damage. Always turn the
instrument over before opening the battery compartment cover.
Setting Up
■ Handling SmartMedia™* memory cards
* SmartMedia is a trademark of Toshiba Corporation.
This instrument features a built-in SmartMedia card slot (on the front panel). It lets you save original data you’ve created
on the instrument to a SmartMedia card, and allows you to load data from a card to the instrument. Be sure to handle
SmartMedia cards with care. Follow the important precautions below.
● Compatible SmartMedia types
• 3.3V (3V) SmartMedia can be used. 5V type SmartMedia is not compatible with this instrument.
• SmartMedia cards of five different memory capacities of
(8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB, and 128MB) can be used
with the instrument. SmartMedia cards greater than
32MB can be used if they conform to the SSFDC Forum
standard.
NOTE
• SSFDC is an abbreviation for Solid State Floppy Disk Card
(another name for SmartMedia cards). The SSFDC Forum is a
voluntary organization established for the promotion of SmartMedia.
● Formatting SmartMedia cards
• If you find that you are unable to use new, blank SmartMedia cards or cards that have been used with other
devices, you may need to format them. For details on
how to format a SmartMedia card, see page 74. Keep in
mind that all data on the card will be lost after formatting. Make sure to check beforehand whether or not the
card contains important data.
NOTE
• SmartMedia cards formatted on this device may or may not be
useable as is on other devices.
● About SmartMedia cards
Handle SmartMedia cards with care, and follow these precautions:
• There are times when static electricity affects SmartMedia. Before you touch a SmartMedia card, touch something metallic such as a door knob and aluminum sash,
to reduce the possibility of static electricity.
• Be sure to remove the SmartMedia card from the SmartMedia slot when it is not in use for a long time.
• Do not expose the SmartMedia to direct sunlight,
extremely high or low temperatures, or excessive
humidity, dust or liquids.
• Do not place heavy objects on a SmartMedia card or
bend or apply pressure to the card in any way.
• Do not touch the gold-plated terminals of the SmartMedia card or put any metallic plate onto the terminals.
• Do not expose the SmartMedia card to magnetic fields,
such as those produced by televisions, speakers, motors,
etc., since magnetic fields can partially or completely
erase data on the SmartMedia, rendering it unreadable.
• Do not attach anything other than the provided labels to
a SmartMedia. Also make sure that labels are attached in
the proper location.
To protect your data (write-protect):
● Inserting/removing SmartMedia cards
Inserting SmartMedia cards
• Insert the SmartMedia card with the terminal (goldplated) side face up into the card slot, until it fits into
place.
• Do not insert the SmartMedia card in the wrong direction.
• Do not insert anything other than a SmartMedia card in
the slot.
Removing SmartMedia cards
• Before removing the SmartMedia card, be sure to confirm that the card is not in use, or it is not being accessed
by the instrument. Then pull the card out slowly by
hand. If the SmartMedia card is being accessed*, a message indicating that it is in use appears on the instrument's display.
• To prevent inadvertent erasure of important data, affix
the write-protect seal (provided in the SmartMedia
package) onto the designated area (within the circle) of
the SmartMedia card. Conversely, to save data on the
SmartMedia card, make sure to remove the write-protect
seal from the card.
• Do not reuse a seal that has been peeled off.
Data Backup
• For maximum data security, Yamaha recommends that
you keep two copies of important data on separate
SmartMedia cards. This gives you a backup if one card
is lost or damaged.
* Accessing includes saving, loading, formatting, deleting
and making directory. Also, be aware that the instrument
will automatically access the SmartMedia to check the
media type when it is inserted while the instrument is
turned on.
CAUTION
• Never attempt to remove the SmartMedia card or turn the
power off during accessing. Doing so can damage the data
on the instrument or card and possibly damage the SmartMedia card itself.

The Easy Way To Play Piano
Quick Guide
This instrument includes a performance assistant technology feature that lets
you play along with a song and sound like a great pianist (even though you
might be making lots of mistakes)! In fact, you can play any notes and still
sound good! You could even just tap one key and the results would be a beautiful melody. So even if you can’t play piano and can’t read a note of music,
you can have some musical fun.
The performance assistant technology has two types – Chord and Melody.
● Chord .............. Select this type when you want to play with both hands. You’ll get beautifully
arranged sound no matter what you play.
● Melody............. This type lets you play the melody with just one finger.
Try the Chord type to begin with, and then try the Melody type. The secret to the performance assistant technology’s
ability to turn random playing into music is divulged on page 20. Enjoy the feature for a while first, then read about
how its done.
Chord Type – Play With Both Hands
To use the performance assistant technology Chord type you must be playing a song that includes chord data.
1
Press the [SONG] button.
The song number and name will be highlighted. When the song is highlighted on
the display you can use the dial or other selection controls to select a different
song.
NOTE
• For details on Chords, see page
64.
The song is highlighted. The number and name of the currently
selected song is displayed here.
2
Select a song.
Rotate the dial and watch the highlighted song names – for this example we’ll
select song “026 Twinkle Star.”
NOTE
• MIDI songs included on the supplied Accessory CD-ROM can
also be transferred to the instrument and used with the performance assistant technology.
The song displayed here will
be played.
3
Press the [PERFORMANCE ASSISTANT] button.
The PERFORMANCE ASSISTANT display will appear.
The display includes icons that show whether the performance assistant technology is on or off, and whether the chord or melody type is selected. Press the
[PERFORMANCE ASSISTANT] button to turn the function on or off. Use the
[+] and [-] buttons to select the chord or melody type.

button selects the MELODY type. The graphic
knob in the display will
indicate the selected
setting.
Press the [START/STOP] button.
Song playback will begin.
Use the [MASTER VOLUME] control to adjust the overall volume.
Adjust
volume
5
Play on the keyboard.
To begin, try to feel the rhythm of the song. Then, with your hands spread as
shown in the illustration, simply play the keyboard alternately with your left and
right hands (any notes will do).
You will get even better
results if you match your
left-hand rhythm to
rhythm of the cord indicator in the display.
Sounds like you’re
playing the right
notes!
How does it sound? You’ll get acceptable results no matter where you play
thanks to the performance assistant technology Chord type!
Next try the three playing methods illustrated below. Different ways of playing
produce different results.
● Play with the left and right hands
at the same timing – type 1.
● Play with the left and right hands
at the same timing – type 2.
Play 3 notes at once
with your right hand.
Play 1 note at a time with your right
hand (for example: index finger → middle finger → ring finger).
● Play alternately with the left
and right hands – type 3.
Play 3 notes at once
with your right hand.
Once you get a feel for it, try playing chords with your left hand and a melody
with your right … or any other combination.
Song playback will stop automatically when the song has played all the way
through.
You can also stop playback at any time by pressing the [START/STOP] button.

■ The Score Is Handy When …
● You Want To Play With the Correct Rhythm
Use the score when you’re playing a melody you’re not familiar with. The marker will
indicate the current position in the score during playback. If you play a key each time
the marker appears above a note in the score you will be able to play the melody with
the correct “original” rhythm.
Play while watching
the marker
● You Want To Play Jazzy Ad-lib Lines
When you are using the performance assistant technology Melody type and you play
on the keyboard during breaks in the melody, jazzy* ad-lib phrases will automatically
be created. For example, measures 048 through 055 of the song (“001 Don’t Know
Why”) are a break in the melody. Try creating interesting ad-lib phrases during the
breaks.
NOTE
• Jazz Rhythm
The term “jazz rhythm” usually
refers to a light-hearted swinging rhythm. Here’s a written
explanation.
Straight rhythm:
* Playing With a Jazz Feel
You can play any keys you like. Begin by playing one note at a time with the righthand fingers in sequence: thumb → index → middle. Then play a simple scale (ex:
do-re-mi ...) including black keys while adding dynamic variation. When you get
used to playing like this try adding your left hand. Play chords (multiple notes)
with the left hand in the spaces between what the right hand is playing.
You can stop song playback at any time by pressing the [START/STOP] button.
(one, two, three, four, …)
A more jazzy rhythm:
(one-two-three, two-two-three,
three-two-three …)
Most jazz rhythms have a “triplet” feel like the last one above.
Keep this feel in mind while
playing your jazz ad-lib phrases!

Quick Guide
The Easy Way To Play Piano
— The Secret Of the performance assistant technology —
How It Creates Music From Random Notes
When you use the Chord type, the performance assistant technology reads the chord data from the song and only
assigns notes that will “work” at that moment to the keyboard. In the Melody type it reads the song’s melody data and
assigns the appropriate note(s) to the key(s) you play, so you can play the melody by playing any keys. Going back to
the Chord type, since the chords of a song are constantly changing, different notes and chords will be produced even if
you repeatedly play the same keys.

● Songs That Can Be Used With the performance assistant technology
When the Chord type is selected the performance assistant technology can only be used with songs that include chord
data. In the same way, when the Melody type is selected the performance assistant technology will only work with
songs that include melody data. In order to find out if a song includes the required data, first select the song and then
press the [SCORE] button. If chords appear on the display (page 19) when you press the [SCORE] button you can use
the Chord type. If the melody appears on the display (page 19) when you press the [SCORE] button you can use the
melody type.
● External Songs and the performance assistant technology
In addition to the instrument’s internal songs, the 70 songs provided on the Accessory CD-ROM (page 84) can be
used with the performance assistant technology. A list of the MIDI songs included on the Accessory CD-ROM is provided on page 103.
Songs downloaded from the Internet can also be used with the performance assistant technology as long as they
include the required chord and/or melody data. Transfer song files you want to use from your computer to the instrument’s flash memory or an optional SmartMedia memory card (page 82).

NOTE
• The Difference Between MELODY R and MELODY L …
Songs are a combination of a
melody and an auto-accompaniment style. Normally “melody”
refers to the right-hand part, but
in this instrument “melody” parts
are provided for both the right
and left hands. MELODY R is
the melody part played by the
right hand, and MELODY L is
the melody part played by the
left hand.

Record Your Own Performance
You can record up to 5 of your own performances and save them as user
songs 031 through 035. Once your performances have been saved as user
songs, they can be converted to SMF (Standard MID File) format files and
saved to SmartMedia memory (page 76) and used with score display. So
when inspiration strikes and you create a great melody, you can save it in
both listenable and written score form. You can also record performances
using the performance assistant technology.
■ Recordable Data
You can record to a total of 6 tracks: 5 melody tracks and 1 style (chord) track.
Each track can be recorded individually.

• Inversion of the 7sus4 and m7(11) chords are not recognized if the
notes shown in parentheses are omitted.
• The auto accompaniment will sometimes not change when related
chords are played in sequence (e.g. some minor chords followed by the
minor seventh).
• Two-note fingerings will produce a chord based on the previously played
chord.

Looking Up Chords Using the Chord Dictionary
The Dictionary function is essentially a built-in “chord book” that shows you the individual notes of chords. It is ideal
when you know the name of a certain chord and want to quickly learn how to play it.
1
Press and hold the [LESSON MODE] button
for longer than a second. The DICTIONARY
display will appear.
3
Press the “M7” (major seventh) key in the
section of the keyboard labeled “CHORD
TYPE.” (The note doesn’t sound.) The notes
you should play for the specified chord (root
note and chord type) are shown in the display, both as notation and in the keyboard
diagram.
Hold for longer
than a second
2
As an example, we’ll learn how to play a
GM7 (G major seventh) chord. Press the “G”
key in the section of the keyboard labeled
“CHORD ROOT.” (The note doesn’t sound.)
The root note you set is shown in the display.
To call up possible inversions of the chord, press the
[+]/[-] buttons.
NOTE
• About major chords: Simple major chords are usually indicated only
by the root note. For example, “C” refers to C major. However, when
specifying major chords here, make sure to select “M” (major) after
pressing the root note.
NOTE
• Be aware that the chord types explained here are the left-hand
notes applied to various styles and different from the one for the performance assistant technology feature.
4
Try playing a chord in the auto accompaniment section of the keyboard, checking the
indications in the display. When you’ve
played the chord properly, a bell sound signals your success and the chord name in
the display is highlighted.

Style (Auto-accompaniment) Functions
■ Chord Basics
Two or more notes played together constitute a “chord.”
The most basic chord type is the “triad” consisting of three notes: the root, third, and
fifth degrees of the corresponding scale. A C major triad, for example, is made up of
the notes C (the root), E (the third note of the C major scale), and G (the fifth note of
the C major scale).
3rd
3rd
Root
In the C major triad shown above, the lowest note is the “root” of the chord (this is the chord’s “root position” … using
other chord notes for the lowest note results in “inversions”). The root is the central sound of the chord, which supports
and anchors the other chord notes.
The distance (interval) between adjacent notes of a triad in root position is either a major or minor third.
Major third – four half steps (semitones)
Minor third – three half steps (semitones)
The lowest interval in our root-position triad (between the root and the third) determines whether the triad is a major or
minor chord, and we can shift the highest note up or down by a semitone to produce two additional chords, as shown
below.

Minor 3rd
Major 3rd

Augmented chord
Diminished chord
C aug
Minor 3rd
Major 3rd

The basic characteristics of the chord sound remain intact even if we change the order of the notes to create different
inversions. Successive chords in a chord progression can be smoothly connected, for example, be choosing the appropriate inversions (or chord “voicings”).
● Reading Chord Names
Chord names tell you just about everything you need to know about a chord (other
than the inversion/voicing). The chord name tells you what the root of the chord is,
whether it is a major, minor, or diminished chord, whether it requires a major or
flatted seventh, what alterations or tensions it uses … all at a glance.

Using SmartMedia™ Memory
SmartMedia is a card-type memory medium used for storing data.
When a SmartMedia card is inserted in this instrument’s card slot, MIDI data created on the
instrument can be saved to or loaded from the memory card. SmartMedia can also be used to
transfer song data downloaded from the Internet to the instrument, where it can be used with
the performance assistant technology (page 16) and Lesson (page 39) features described in
the Quick Guide. Furthermore, user songs saved to SmartMedia memory in MIDI file format
can also be used with these features.
In this section we’ll look at the procedures for setting up and formatting SmartMedia memory
cards, as well as for saving and loading data to and from them.
If you don’t have a SmartMedia card, you will need to purchase one (or more, as needed).
Be sure to read the handling SmartMedia precautions provided on page 11.
Inserting a SmartMedia Card
1
Insert a SmartMedia* card into the card slot,
being careful to insert it with the proper orientation.
The gold connector terminals on the SmartMedia
card should be facing upward. Carefully but firmly
insert the card all the way into the slot. Take care not
to insert the card the wrong way around.
2
Check that the file control icon appears in
the MAIN display.

Connecting To a Computer
Nearly all of the electronic musical instruments made today – particularly synthesizers,
sequencers and computer music related devices – use MIDI. MIDI is a worldwide standard that
allows these devices to send and receive performance and setting data. Naturally, this instrument lets you save or send your keyboard performance as MIDI data, as well as that of the
songs, styles and panel settings.
The potential MIDI holds for your live performance and music creation/production is enormous
– simply by connecting this instrument to a computer and transmitting MIDI data. In this section, you'll learn the basics of MIDI and the particular MIDI functions of this instrument.
What Is MIDI?
No doubt you have heard the terms “acoustic instrument” and “digital instrument.” In the world today,
these are the two main categories of instruments. Let's
consider a grand piano and a classical guitar as representative acoustic instruments. They are easy to understand. With the piano, you strike a key, and a hammer
inside hits some strings and plays a note. With the guitar, you directly pluck a string and the note sounds. But
how does a digital instrument go about playing a note?
● Acoustic guitar note production
Pluck a string and the body
resonates the sound.
● Digital instrument note production

Playing the keyboard
Based on playing information from the keyboard, a sampling note
stored in the tone generator is played through the speakers.
As shown in the illustration above, in an electronic
instrument the sampling note (previously recorded note)
stored in the tone generator section (electronic circuit)
is played based on information received from the keyboard. So then what is the information from the keyboard that becomes the basis for note production?
For example, let’s say you play a “C” quarter note using
the grand piano sound on the instrument. Unlike an
acoustic instrument that puts out a resonated note, the
electronic instrument puts out information from the keyboard such as “with what voice,” “with which key,”
“about how strong,” “when was it pressed,” and “when
was it released.” Then each piece of information is
changed into a number value and sent to the tone gener-
ator. Using these numbers as a basis, the tone generator
plays the stored sampling note.
Example of Keyboard Information
Voice number (with what voice)
Note number (with which key)
Note on (when was it pressed) and
note off (when was it released)
Velocity (about how strong)
1 (grand piano)
60 (C3)
Timing expressed numerically
(quarter note)
120 (strong)
Your keyboard performance and all panel operations of
this instrument are processed as MIDI data. The songs,
auto accompaniment (styles), and User songs are also
made up of MIDI data.
MIDI is an acronym that stands for Musical Instrument
Digital Interface and it allows different musical instruments and devices to instantly communicate with each
other, via digital data. The MIDI standard is used all
over the world and was designed to transmit performance data between electronic musical instruments (or
computers). Thanks to MIDI, you can control one
instrument from another and transmit performance data
between the devices-taking your creative and performance potential to even higher levels.
MIDI messages can be divided into two groups: Channel messages and System messages.
● Channel Messages
This instrument is capable of handling 16 MIDI channels simultaneously – meaning it can play up to sixteen
different instruments at the same time. Channel messages transmit information such as Note ON/OFF, Program Change, for each of the 16 channels.

note number and velocity data)

● System Messages
This is data that is used in common by the entire MIDI
system. System messages include messages like Exclusive Messages that transmit data unique to each instrument manufacturer and Realtime Messages that control
the MIDI device.

• The Musicsoft Downloader application may not be able to access the
instrument in the following cases:
• When an unformatted SmartMedia card is inserted while the Media
Select setting is “SmartMedia”.
• During a MIDI bulk dump.
• While the opening display is showing.
• During style playback.
• During song playback.
• During a file control operation (while the FILE CONTROL display is
showing).
• When the Media Select setting is “SmartMedia” but no SmartMedia
card is inserted.
MIDI Settings
These settings pertain to MIDI data transmission and reception.
■ Local ON/OFF ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●
■ External Clock ON/OFF ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●
Local control determines whether or not notes played on
the instrument are sounded by its internal tone generator
system: the internal tone generator is active when local
control is on, and inactive when local control is off.
These settings determine whether the instrument is synchronized to its own internal clock (OFF), or to a clock
signal from an external device (ON).
ON
This is the normal setting in which notes played on the
DGX-505/305 keyboard are sounded by the internal
tone generator system. Data received via the instrument’s USB connector will also be played by the internal
tone generator.
OFF
With this setting the instrument itself produces no sound
(keyboard performance, harmony, or style playback), but
the performance data is transmitted via the USB connector. Data received via the instrument’s USB connector will also be played by the internal tone generator.
Local control can turned on or off via the FUNCTION
display Local item (page 72).
NOTE
• If you can’t get any sound out of the instrument, this may be the most
likely cause. Playing the keyboard results in no sound when Local is set
to OFF.
80
DGX-505/305 Owner’s Manual
ON
The instrument’s time based functions will be synchronized to the clock from an external device connected to
the USB connector.
OFF
The instrument uses its own internal clock (default).
External clock control can turned on or off via the
FUNCTION display External Clock item (page 72).
NOTE
• If External Clock is ON and no clock signal is being received from an
external device, the song, style, and metronome functions will not start.

Troubleshooting
■ For the DGX-505/305
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.
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.
Check that nothing is connected to the PHONES/OUTPUT jack on the rear
panel. When a set of headphones is plugged into this jack, no sound is output.
There is no sound even when the keyboard is played or
when a song or style is being played back.
Check the Local Control on/off. (See page 80.)
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 63), the keys in the right hand area
are used only for entering the chord root and type.
The batteries are low or dead. Replace all six batteries with completely new
ones, or use the optional AC adaptor.
Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
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 80.
Make sure that the Style Volume (page 71) is set to an appropriate level.
The style does not sound properly.
Is the split point set at an appropriate key for the cords you are playing? Set
the split point at an appropriate key (page 59).
Is the “ACMP” indicator showing in the display? If it is not showing press the
[ACMP ON/OFF] button so that it does show.
No rhythm accompaniment plays when the [START/
STOP] button is pressed after selecting style number
112 or a style between 124 and 135 (Pianist).
This is not a malfunction. Style number 112 and style numbers 124 – 135
(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 style playback 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 32 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 Demo display is shown in Japanese, and/or there
are Japanese characters in the display messages.
Make sure the Language setting in the FUNCTION display is set to English.
(See page 22)
The FILE CONTROL display can’t be selected, even
though a SmartMedia card is inserted in the card slot.
The FUNCTION display Media Select item might be set to Flash Memory.
Media Select must be set to SmartMedia in order to use SmartMedia memory.
The appropriate display does not appear when the
[SONG], [EASY SONG ARRANGER], [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 wrong notes sound when the keyboard is played.
Perhaps the performance assistant technology is turned on.
Press the [PERFORMANCE ASSISTANT] button to turn it off.
The ACMP indicator does not appear when the [ACMP
ON/OFF] button is pressed.
Is the [STYLE] button lit? Always press the [STYLE] button first when you are
going to use any style-related function.
The song number (036 –) of an external song file transferred to SmartMedia memory from a computer does
not appear.
Perhaps Media Select is set to Flash Memory. Make sure that Media Select is
set to SmartMedia (page 67).
The song number (036 –) of an external song file transferred to flash memory from a computer does not
appear.
Perhaps Media Select is set to SmartMedia. Make sure that Media Select is
set to Flash Memory (page 67).
There is no harmony sound.
The harmony effects (01 – 26) behave differently according to their type.
Types 01 – 05 function when style playback is on, chords are played in the
accompaniment range of the keyboard, and a melody is played in the righthand range. Types 06 – 26 will function whether style playback is on or off. For
types 06 = 12 you need to play two notes at the same time.

Voice List
■ Maximum Polyphony • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
The instrument has 32-note maximum polyphony. This means that it
can play a maximum of up to 32 notes at once, regardless of what
functions are used. Auto accompaniment uses a number of the available notes, so when auto accompaniment is used the total number of
available notes for playing on the keyboard is correspondingly
reduced. The same applies to the Split Voice and Song functions. If
the maximum polyphony is exceeded, earlier played notes will be
cut off and the most recent notes have priority (last note priority).
NOTE
• The Voice List includes MIDI program change numbers
for each voice. Use these program change numbers
when playing the instrument via MIDI from an external
device.
• Program Numbers 001 to 128 directly relate to MIDI
Program Change Numbers 000 to 127. That is, Program Numbers and Program Change Numbers differ
by a value of 1. Remember to take this into consideration.
• Some voices may sound continuously or have a long
decay after the notes have been released while the
sustain pedal (footswitch) is held.

Drum Kit List
• “
” indicates that the drum sound is the same as “Standard Kit 1”.
• Each percussion voice uses one note.
• The MIDI Note # and Note are actually one octave lower than keyboard Note # and Note. For example, in “122: Standard Kit 1”, the “Seq Click H” (Note# 36/Note C1) corresponds to (Note# 24/Note C0).
• Key Off: Keys marked “O” stop sounding the instant they are released.
• Voices with the same Alternate Note Number (*1 … 4) cannot be played simultaneously. (They are designed to be
played alternately with each other.)

Harmony types 01 – 05 are pitch-based and add one-, two- or three-note harmonies to
the single-note melody played in the right hand. These types only sound when chords are
played in the auto accompaniment area of the keyboard.

Types 6 – 26 are rhythm-based effects and add embellishments or delayed
repeats in time with the auto accompaniment. These types sound whether the
auto accompaniment is on or not; however, the actual speed of the effect
depends on the Tempo setting (page 21). The individual note values in each
type let you synchronize the effect precisely to the rhythm. Triplet settings are
also available: 1/6 = quarter-note triplets, 1/12 = eighth-note triplets, 1/24 = sixteenth-note triplets.
• The Trill effect Types (06 – 12) create two-note trills (alternating notes) when
two notes are held.
• The Tremolo effect Types (13 – 19) repeat all held notes (up to four).
• The Echo effect Types (20 – 26) create delayed repeats of each note played.
