IMPORTANT
Check Your Power Supply
Make sure that your local AC mains voltage
matches the voltage specified on the name
plate on the bottom panel. In some areas a
voltage selector may be provided on the
bottom panel of the main keyboard unit near
the power cord. Make sure that the voltage
selector is set for the voltage in your area. A
voltage selector is provided in some areas.
The voltage selector is set at 220V when the
unit is initially shipped. To change the setting
use a “minus” screwdriver, coin, or similar
implement to rotate the selector dial so that the
correct voltage appears next to the pointer on
the panel.

using the C2 through C4 keys on the keyboard while pressing the two
voice selectors corresponding to the voices to be combined in the
DUAL mode.
The C3 key produces equal (50:50) balance between the two
voices, while keys to the left of C3 increase the volume of the left
voice in relation to the right voice, and keys to the right of C3 increase the volume of the right voice in relation to the left voice. By
“left” and “right” voice we refer to the relative positions of the voice
selectors — i.e. in a HARPSICHORD/ORGAN combination HARPSICHORD is the left voice and ORGAN is the right voice.

The Pedals
The YDP-88 has two foot pedals that produce a range of expressive effects similar to
those produced by the pedals on an acoustic piano.
● Soft/Sostenuto (Left) Pedal
Soft/Sostenuto pedal
When the power is turned on the left pedal is set for soft pedal operation.
Pressing the soft pedal reduces the volume and slightly changes the timbre
of notes played.
The left pedal can be switched to sostenuto operation by pressing the
pedal while holding the [TRANSPOSE] button. If you play a note or chord
on the keyboard and press the sostenuto pedal while the note(s) are held,
those notes will be sustained as long as the pedal is held (as if the damper
pedal had been pressed) but all subsequently played notes will not be sustained. This makes it possible to sustain a chord, for example, while other
notes are played “staccato.” You can switch back to soft pedal operation at
any time simply by pressing the pedal while holding the [TRANSPOSE]
button again.
The damper pedal functions in the same way as a damper pedal on an
acoustic piano. When the damper pedal is pressed notes played have a long
sustain. Releasing the pedal immediately stops (damps) any sustained notes.
● Damper (Right) Pedal
Damper pedal
Transposition
The YDP-88’s TRANSPOSE function makes it possible to shift the pitch of the entire keyboard up or down in semitone intervals up to a maximum of six semitones. “Transposing” the
pitch of the YDP-88 keyboard facilitates playing in difficult key signatures, and you can easily
match the pitch of the keyboard to the range of a singer or other instrumentalist.
The [TRANSPOSE] button and keys F#2 through F#3 on the keyboard are used for transposition.

the next key to the left (Bb2) transposes down a whole tone (two semitones), etc., down to the F#2 key which transposes down 6 semitones.
Upward transposition is accomplished in the same way using the keys to
the right of C3, up to F#3 which transposes up 6 semitones.
NOTE

Pitch Control
Pitch control makes it possible to tune the YDP-88 over a ±50-cent range (approximate) in
approximately 1.6-cent intervals. A hundred “cents” equals one semitone, so the tuning range
provided allows fine tuning of overall pitch over a range of approximately a semitone. Pitch
control is useful for tuning the YDP-88 to match other instruments or recorded music.

Using the Recorder
The YDP-88 recorder lets you record what you play on the keyboard and then play it back. This is a useful adjunct to any keyboard study program, since it lets you hear exactly how you sound from the listener’s
perspective. It can also be just plain fun.
The recorder actually records the following data:
● Notes played
● Damper pedal
● Voice selection
● Left pedal
● Dual mode voices ● Dual balance
● Tempo (Initial setting only.)

Troubleshooting
If you encounter what appears to be a malfunction, please check the following
points before assuming that your YDP-88 is faulty.
1. No Sound When the Power is Turned ON
Is the AC plug properly connected to an AC wall outlet? Check the AC connection carefully. Is the MASTER
VOLUME control turned up to a reasonable listening level?
2. The YDP-88 Reproduces Radio or TV Sound
This can occur if there is a high-power transmitter in your vicinity. Contact your Yamaha dealer.
3. Intermittent Static Noise
This is usually due to turning ON or OFF a household appliance or other electronic equipment which is fed by the
same AC mains line as your YDP-88.
4. Interference Appears On Radio or TV Sets Located Near the YDP-88
The YDP-88 contains digital circuitry which can generate radio-frequency noise. The solution is to move the YDP88 further away from the affected equipment, or vice versa.

two screws on each side. Make sure the pedals extend in the
same direction as the feet.
C Attach the rear panel (B).
With the rough surface of the rear panel facing outward
and the panel angled slightly as shown in the illustration,
lower it onto the screws protruding from the rear of the
pedal box so that the screws fit into the corresponding slots
in the lower edge of the rear panel. Then, while eliminating
any gaps between the rear and side panels, secure the top of
the rear panel to the side panel brackets using the two 4 x
10 millimeter round-head screws 2. Finally, tighten the
screws holding the rear panel to the pedal box.
tance from both sides of the stand, as shown in the illustration. When the stand and main unit are properly positioned,
screw in and securely tighten the four 6 x 16 millimeter
flat-head screws 3.
Untie and unravel the pedal cord which is coiled and
attached to the bottom of the pedal box with a vinyl tie,
extend the cord and re-fasten it to the bottom of the pedal
box with the vinyl tie (see illustration).
B Connect the pedal cord.
Raise the completed keyboard and stand assembly to its
normal playing position. Pass the pedal cord behind the rear
panel and plug the free end of the cord into the connector
on the bottom of the main unit (A). The plug only goes in
one way (the lug on the connector should face the rear of
the main unit, as shown in the illustration) — don’t try to
force it in the wrong way around.
NOTE
• A voltage selector is provided in some areas. To set
the selector for 110V, 130V, 220V or 240V mains
voltages, use a “minus” screwdriver or similar implement to rotate the selector dial so that the correct
voltage appears next to the pointer on the panel.
NSet the adjuster.
For stability, an adjuster is provided on the bottom of the
pedal box (C). Rotate the adjuster until it comes in firm
contact with the floor surface. The adjuster ensures stable
pedal operation and facilitates pedal effect control. If the
adjuster is not in firm contact with the floor surface, distorted sound may result.
V Install the main unit (A).
Lay the completed stand on its side as shown in the illustration. Stand the main unit (A) on its rear panel and position it so that the screw holes on the bottom panel are
aligned with the brackets on the side panels of the stand.
Also center the main unit so that it extends an equal dis-
IMPORTANT
• After assembling the YDP-88, check once more to
make sure that all screws have been securely fastened.
• If the stand leans to the side, makes unusual noises,
or otherwise seems unstable during use, check and
tighten all screws while following the assembly instructions given above.
