volume settings can shorten battery life.
■ Any of the following symptoms indicate low battery
power. Replace batteries as soon as possible whenever
any of the following occurs.
• Dim power indicator.
• Instrument does not turn on.
• Display that is flickering, dim, or difficult to read.
• Abnormally low speaker/headphone volume.
• Distortion of sound output.
• Occasional interruption of sound when playing at high
volume.
• Sudden power failure when playing at high volume.
• Flickering or dimming of the display when playing at
high volume.
• Continued sound output even after you release a key.
• A tone that is totally different from the one that is
selected.
To power the keyboard from an AC outlet, you need an AC
adaptor and a size M Adaptaplug TM (neither supplied,
available at your local RadioShack store or online

Digital Sampling
A number of the tones that are available with this keyboard
have been recorded and processed using a technique called
digital sampling. To ensure a high level of tonal quality,
samples are taken in the low, mid, and high ranges and then
combined to provide you with sounds that are amazingly
close to the originals. You may notice very slight differences
in volume or sound quality for some tones when you play
them at different positions on the keyboard. This is an
unavoidable result of multiple sampling, and it is not a sign
of malfunction.

Polyphony
<Keys and their indicators>
The term polyphony refers to the maximum number of notes
you can play at the same time. This keyboard has 12-note
polyphony, which includes the notes you play as well as the
rhythms and auto-accompaniment patterns that are played
by the keyboard. This means that when a rhythm or autoaccompaniment pattern is being played by the keyboard, the
number of notes (polyphony) available for keyboard play is
reduced. Also note that some of the tones offer only 6-note
polyphony.
Key :
• When rhythm or auto accompaniment is playing, the
number of sounds simultaneously played is reduced.
• Though you can sound up to 12 notes at one time, only the
last four keyboard keys pressed light up.
Other Useful Functions
To change the key of the keyboard
The transpose feature of this keyboard lets you raise or lower
its key in semitone increments. This means you can easily
match to suit someone’s voice, and you can eliminate sharps
and flats from music making it easier to play.

IMPORTANT!
• If you play one or two notes only in the left hand, or three
notes that do not make up a recognizable chord formation,
no sound will be produced. The FINGERED mode requires
a conventional three or four-note chord formation to
produce an auto-accompaniment. Also, note that autochords only work in conjunction with rhythm patterns, and
not independently of them.
❚ NOTE
• The above examples show only one of the possible fingerings
for each chord. Note that you can play the notes that form a
chord in any combination. Each of the following fingerings for
example, produces the same C chord.
Improvising with the preset patterns

Timing Indicator
Turning Off Key Lighting
The timing indicator helps you become familiar with tunes
you are playing for the first time by indicating the timing of
notes you play on the keyboard. Timing is easier to see when
you use a slow tempo during lesson play.
1.
Press the KEY LIGHT button.
• The KEY LIGHT indicator disappears when the key
light system is turned off.
• Press the KEY LIGHT button again to turn key lighting
back on.
Using the Timing Indicator
The timing indicator shows the timing of notes contained in
the currently selected part (R or L). Notes are indicated as
two-segment blocks that scroll from the top of the display,
down to the bottom. A note is played when its block reaches
the bottom of the display.
KEY LIGHT indicator
❚ NOTE
Key lighting turns on automatically in any of the following cases:
• When keyboard power is turned on.
• When demo tune play is started.
• When the SONGS button is pressed in the normal mode (page
E-22).
• When the power on alert function operates (page E-13).

• Each two-segment block can indicate one or more notes,
depending on the tune you are playing.
❚ NOTE
• The Timing Indicator shows note timing whenever you play back
a tune and during a 3-Step Lesson.
• Note that the Timing Indicator shows approximate timing only.
During a tune, the indicated timing can be anywhere from an
eight note to a 32nd off of actual timing.
Up to four keyboard keys can be lit at the same time.
To change the tone used for the melody
of a tune
1.
Following step 3 of the procedure on page E-22,
press the TONE button.
• Both the SONG indicator and TONE indicator appear,
along with the tone number and name of the tone that
is currently assigned to the keyboard.
2.
Input a value to select the tone you want to use.
❚ NOTE
• Selecting another tune switches the tone setting to the newly
selected tune’s preset melody tone.
• The tone assigned to the keyboard is the same one specified
for the melody of the tune.
• The above procedure can be used to change the tune melody
tone before starting play or while play is already in progress.
• You can also change the tone of two-hand tunes (tune numbers
85 to 99). Note however, that selecting a sustainable tone (like
an organ tone) when using 3-Step Lesson Step 1 or Step 2 (in
which accompaniment waits for correct input from you before
proceeding), can cause notes of the auto accompaniment to
be sustained while the keyboard is waiting for your input. If this
happens, play something on the keyboard to stop the sustained
note.

MIDI
What is MIDI?
MIDI Channels
The letters MIDI stand for Musical Instrument Digital
Interface, which is the name of a worldwide standard for
digital signals and connectors that makes it possible to
exchange musical data between musical instruments and
computers (machines) produced by different manufacturers.
MIDI compatible equipment can exchange keyboard key
press, key release, tone change, and other data as messages.
Though you do not need any special knowledge about MIDI
to use this keyboard as a stand-alone unit, MIDI operations
require a bit of specialized knowledge. This section provides
you with an overview of MIDI that will help to get you going.
MIDI allows you to send the data for multiple parts at the
same time, with each part being sent over a separate MIDI
channel. There are 16 MIDI channels, numbered 1 through
16, and MIDI channel data is always included whenever you
exchange data (key press etc.).
Both the sending machine and the receiving machine must
be set to the same channel for the receiving unit to correctly
receive and play data. If the receiving machine is set to
Channel 2, for example, it receives only MIDI Channel 2 data,
and all other channels are ignored.
With this keyboard, messages received over MIDI Channels
1, 2, 3, 4, and 10 can be used for multi-timbre play of up to
five different instrument parts. The tone and volume settings
for these five channels must be controlled by messages sent
from an external device.
Conversely, keyboard operations are sent to external devices
over MIDI Channel 1.
MIDI Connections
MIDI messages are send out through the MIDI OUT terminal
of one machine to the MIDI IN terminal of another machine
over a MIDI cable. To send a message from this keyboard to
another machine, for example, you must use a MIDI cable to
connect the MIDI OUT terminal of this keyboard to the MIDI
IN terminal of the other machine. To send MIDI messages
back to this keyboard, you need to use a MIDI cable to connect
the other machine’s MIDI OUT terminal to the MIDI IN
terminal of this keyboard.
To use a computer or other MIDI device to record and
playback the MIDI data produced by this keyboard, you must
connect the MIDI IN and MIDI OUT terminals of both
machines in order to send and receive data.
MIDI IN
MIDI IN
MIDI OUT
MIDI OUT
General MIDI
General MIDI standardizes MIDI data for all sound source
types, regardless of manufacturer. General MIDI specifies
such factors as tone numbering, drum sounds, and available
MIDI channels for all sound sources. This standard makes it
possible for all MIDI equipment to reproduce the same
nuances when playing General MIDI data, regardless of the
manufacturer of the sound source.
Though the sound source of this keyboard is not General
MIDI compatible, you can still connect the keyboard to a
computer or other MIDI equipment to playback General MIDI
data that is widely available in stores, over computer
networks, and from other sources.
❚ NOTE
Computer etc.
• General MIDI data made up of a large number of parts may not
play correctly on this keyboard.
• You will have most success playing back General MIDI data
that has few parts and is made up of parts on channels 1, 2, 3,
4, and 10.
Messages
There is a wide variety of messages defined under the MIDI
standard, and this section details the particular messages that
can be sent and received by this keyboard.

NOTE ON/OFF
CONTROL CHANGE
This message sends data when a key is pressed (NOTE ON)
or released (NOTE OFF).
A NOTE ON/OFF message includes a note number (to
indicate note whose key is being pressed or released) and
velocity (velocity=100 when the volume value of this unit is
9 to 2, and velocity=75 when the volume value is 1 or 0).
NOTE ON velocity is always used to determine the relative
volume of the note. This keyboard does not receive NOTE
OFF velocity data.
Whenever you press or release a key on this keyboard, the
corresponding NOTE ON or NOTE OFF message is sent by
constant velocity from the MIDI OUT terminal.
This message adds effects such as vibrato and volume changes
applied during keyboard play. CONTROL CHANGE data
includes a control number (to identify the effect type) and a
control value (to specify the on/off status and depth of the
effect).
The following is a list of data that can be received using
CONTROL CHANGE.

PROGRAM CHANGE
This is the tone selection message. PROGRAM CHANGE can
contain tone data within the range of 0 to 127.
A PROGRAM CHANGE message (0 to 99) is sent out through
this keyboard’s MIDI OUT terminal whenever you manually
change its tone number. Receipt of a PROGRAM CHANGE
message from an external machine changes the tone setting
of this keyboard.
This keyboard can send tone data within the range of 00 to
99 and receive tone data within the range of 0 to 127*. Each
of the 128 General MIDI tones is automatically assigned to
one of the keyboard’s 100 built-in tones as shown on page A1. Select this setting when you want to listen to General MIDI
data from a computer or other external equipment.
* When GM mapping is turned on (page E-31). When turned
off, tone data is received in the range of 0 to 99.
❚ NOTE
• Channel 10 is for the drum part only, and it does not receive
Program Change messages. When receiving MIDI data, it
sounds percussion sounds produced by this keyboard.
LOCAL CONTROL (Default: on) /GM mapping
(Default: off)
This setting determines whether or not the keyboard and
sound source of this keyboard are connected internally. When
recording to a computer or other external device connected
to this keyboard’s MIDI IN/OUT terminal, it helps if you
turn LOCAL CONTROL off.
on: Anything played on the keyboard is sounded by the
internal sound source and simultaneously output as a
MIDI message from the MIDI OUT terminal.
oFF: Anything played on the keyboard is output as a MIDI
message from the MIDI OUT terminal, without being
sounded by the internal sound source. Turn LOCAL
CONTROL off whenever you are using the MIDI THRU
function of a computer or other external device. Also
note that no sound is produced by the keyboard if
LOCAL CONTROL is turned off and no external device
is connected.
❚ NOTE
PITCH BEND
This message carries pitch bend information for smoothly
sliding the pitch upwards or downwards during keyboard
play. This keyboard does not send pitch bend data, but it can
receive such data.
• When you are using this keyboard in a stand-alone
configuration, keyboard keys do not light while local control is
turned off.

Care of Your Keyboard
Avoid heat, humidity or direct sunlight.
Do not overexpose the instrument to direct sunlight, or place
it near an air conditioner, or in any extremely hot place.
Do not use near a TV or radio.
This instrument can cause video or audio interference with
TV and radio reception. If this happens, move the instrument
away from the TV or radio.
Do not use lacquer, thinner or similar chemicals
for cleaning.
Clean the keyboard with a soft cloth dampened in a weak
solution of water and a neutral detergent. Soak the cloth in
the solution and squeeze until it is almost dry.
❚ NOTE
• You may notice lines in the finish of the case of this keyboard.
These lines are a result of the molding process used to shape
the plastic of the case. They are not cracks or breaks in the
plastic, and are no cause for concern.
