More about tones
Using Digital Effects
Polyphony
This digital piano can play up to 64 notes at the same time.
Note, however, that the tones listed below are capable of only
32-note polyphony. GRAND PIANO 1, BRIGHT PIANO,
HONKY-TONK, ELEC PIANO 1, HARPSICHORD, STRINGS
1, CHOIR, SYNTH-PAD, RIDE ACO BASS
This digital piano provides you with a selection of digital
effects that you can apply to tones. The following provides
general descriptions of each effect, but the best way to find
out how they affect tones is to experiment for yourself.
Digital Effect Types
REVERB
Touch Response
The touch response feature causes changes in the volume and
the sound of the tone in accordance with how much pressure
you apply to the keyboard, just like an acoustic piano.
Touch response affects the HARPSICHORD tone only slightly,
because the original musical instrument normally produces
the same sound, no matter how much pressure is applied.
The REVERB effect gives you a choice of the eight variations
listed below. Each one simulates the acoustics of different
environments.
The following table shows the name of each effect and the
keyboard keys you press to select it.
Type
Digitally Sampled Tones
The tones of this digital piano are produced using digitally
recorded samples of actual musical instruments. Not all of
the instruments, however, can produce tones across the entire
range played by this digital piano (A0 through C8). In such a
case, digital recordings are used for the range that actually
can be produced by the original instrument, and synthesized
tones are used for notes that cannot be produced naturally.
Because of this, you may notice very slight differences
between natural notes and synthesized notes in sound quality
and in results produced when using effects. These differences
are normal and do not indicate malfunction.

Adjusting the Brilliance of a Tone
You can use the BRILLIANCE slider to adjust the clarity and
sharpness of a tone to suit your music and personal
preferences.
1.
Slide the BRILLIANCE slider left and right to
adjust the brilliance of a tone to the level that
you want.
• Moving the slider towards MELLOW produces a
more mellow sound, while moving it toward BRIGHT
produces a brighter sound.

Pedal functions
• Damper pedal
Pressing this pedal causes notes to reverberate and to
sustain longer. In the case of the PIPE ORGAN and
STRINGS tones, pressing this pedal sustains the notes
played until you release the pedal.
• Soft pedal
Pressing this pedal dampens notes and slightly reduces
their volume. Only notes played after the pedal is depressed
are affected, and any notes played before the pedal is
pressed sound at their normal volume.
• Sostenuto pedal
Like the damper pedal, this pedal causes notes to
reverberate and to sustain longer. The difference between
the two pedals is the timing when they are pressed. With
the sostenuto pedal, you press the pedal after depressing
the notes you want to sustain. Only the notes whose
keyboard keys are depressed when the sostenuto pedal is
pressed are affected.
• A note does not sound when you press a keyboard
key while the CONTROL button is depressed.
Using the Metronome
The metronome provides a reference beat that you can use
during your performances or practice sessions. You can
change the beat and the tempo of the metronome.
• The illustration below shows the keyboard keys you use
when configuring metronome settings. The names of the
settings are also marked above the keyboard keys to which
they are assigned.

Adjusting the Tuning of the Digital
Piano
Temperament
Use the keyboard keys noted below to adjust the tuning of
the digital piano.
Modern pianos employ a tuning system called “Equal
Temperament,” which is also used by your digital piano.
Equal Temperament, however, is a relatively new tuning
system, and different temperaments were in use during the
times of Bach, Beethoven, and Chopin.
Your digital piano comes with the seven temperament settings
listed below, which adjust the tuning of the keyboard to suit
a variety of classical pieces.
Setting keys
Use the keys shown below to change the temperament setting.
You can adjust the overall tuning of the digital piano for play
along with another instrument. You can adjust tuning within
a range of ±50 cents* from A4 = 440.0Hz.

About Temperaments
● Equal Temperament
This tuning system is the most widely used for keyboard
musical instruments in the world today. The octave is
divided into 12 semitones that are equal in frequency ratio.
With this system, you can perform in all the major and
minor keys without any adjustment. Though we take this
system for granted these days, it was a revolutionary
development in the history of music. Equal Temperament
tuning has been the most common system used in the
world since the middle of the 18th Century.
● Kirnberger III
This is also one of the precursors to equal temperament.
It is an evolution of just intonation and the mean-tone
system, and all keys (from C-major to F-major) can be
used for keyboard play.
● Werckmeister
Werckmeister is a famous theorist who also did research
on equal temperament. This particular system is said to
be a precursor to equal temperament, and all keys (from
C-major to F-major) can be used for keyboard play.
● Mean-Tone System
This system was the first actually used for tuning of
keyboard musical instruments. It was widely used starting
from the Renaissance up until the second half of the 18th
Century. During the days of Handel and Bach, it was
employed for cembalos, organs, and pianos.
● Pythagorean System
This system was developed by the philosopher
Pythagoras sometime during the 5th Century B.C. Most
of the fifths in this system do not deviate from the “pure”
(acoustically correct) intervals. The Pythagorean system
is perfect within a small range of tones and in the simple
keys, but it becomes inadequate in others. Despite this,
this system was used for Middle Age religious music,
which was performed (sung) using only the simple keys.
● Just Intonation
This system is one of the “pure” systems in which many
of the fifths and thirds are acoustically correct. Try setting
the root to C and playing C, E, G.

MIDI
What is MIDI?
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 digital piano 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.
What you can do with MIDI
MIDI Connections
Two MIDI cables, one for sending and one for receiving, are
required for two-way recording and playback capabilities
with a connected MIDI sequencer or other device.
MIDI Channels
Send
MIDI cable: MK-5
Sender OUT
*1 Keyboard play and memory playback data can be sent as
MIDI data. Demo tunes cannot be sent as MIDI data.
*2 A device that contains memory storage for MIDI data.
Some MIDI sequencers feature external storage
capabilities, which let you record a virtually unlimited
number of tunes.
IN Receiver
MIDI musical instrument
MIDI sound module
MIDI sequencer
Other MIDI device
• What you play on the digital piano can be sent to the
connected device as MIDI messages*1. The connected
device sounds notes in accordance with the messages it
receives.
• MIDI messages*1 can be sent from the digital piano to a
commercially available MIDI sequencer*2 for recording.
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, pedal operation, 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.
This digital piano is equipped with multi-timbre capabilities,
which means it can receive messages over all 16 MIDI
channels and play up to 16 parts at the same time.
Keyboard and pedal operations performed on this digital
piano are sent out by selecting a MIDI channel (1 to 16) and
then sending the appropriate message.

Assigning Tones to Individual Channels
Simultaneous Receive Over
Multiple Channels (Multi-Timbre)
The Multi-Timbre mode makes it possible to assign the digital
piano’s built-in tones to MIDI channels 1 through 16. Then
you can simultaneously sound multiple channels to play from
a commercially available multi-track sequencer.
❚ NOTE
• The GRAND PIANO 1 tone is automatically assigned to all
channels whenever you turn on the digital piano power.
❚ NOTE
• See “Assigning Tones to Individual Channels” on this page for
details on assigning tones to each channel.
• Up to 16 channels can be received simultaneously (Channel 1
through channel 16).
• The number of channels to be received simultaneously cannot
be predetermined. If it becomes necessary to cancel a channel,
the cancel operation must be performed on the sending side.
Specifying the Keyboard Channel
The keyboard channel is the channel used when sending MIDI
messages to another MIDI device. You can specify any
channel from 1 through 16 as the keyboard channel.
To specify the keyboard channel
1.
You can assign tones to channels using a Program Change
message sent from a connected MIDI device. You cannot

1. Attach E and F brackets to side uprights A and B using
the J screws (Figure 3).
• When attaching the F bracket to the side upright B, slip
a K clip onto the J screw before screwing the J screw
into the upright at point 3.
2. Attach angle brackets G to side uprights A and B using
the four J screws (Figure 3).
3. Install height adjustment screw H into hole 4 located in
the center of the back of crosspiece D (Figure 3).
4. Attach side uprights A and B to crosspiece D using the
four I screws (Figure 3).
• When joining the two pieces marked 5, the metal pieces
E on the insides of side uprights A and B should fit
into the slots at the ends of crosspiece D. Make sure the
metal pieces enter into the slots as far as they will go. If
the pieces are not positioned correctly, the nuts built into
crosspiece D will not seat properly with the I screws.
This can result in stripping of the threads and free turning
of nuts.

5. Attach back panel C to the F brackets and crosspiece D.
Note that the back panel C should be installed so it is in
front of the F brackets (Figure 4). Use the four M screws,
six J screws to secure the back panel in place (Figures 3
and 4). Note that you must also install the second K clip at
this time as shown in the illustration.
• First, install the topmost M screws on the left and right
sides of the back panel C. Note that you should slip the
other K clip onto the J screw at point 6 before you
screw in the J screw.
• The back panel C should rest on the feet of side uprights
A and B as indicated by 7 in the illustration. Press the
back panel C against crosspiece D while installing the
M screws.
Be sure that you securely anchor the keyboard to the stand
using the L butterfly bolts (Figure 6).
• Slide the screws on the bottom of the keyboard into the
slots in the two angle brackets G. Next, secure the keyboard
to the stand with two butterfly bolts L (Figure 7).
