Voice Characteristics
The Voice type and its defining characteristics are indicated above the Voice name in the Voice Selection display.
S.Articulation!
See the Owner’s Manual, chapter 2.
Natural!
These rich and luscious Voices are comprised mostly of keyboard instrument sounds
and are especially intended for playing piano and other keyboard parts. They also take
full advantage of Yamaha’s advanced sampling technology such as Stereo Sampling,
Sustain Sampling, and Key-off Sampling.
Live!
These acoustic instrument sounds were sampled in stereo, to produce a truly authentic,
rich sound — full of atmosphere and ambience.
Cool!
These Voices capture the dynamic textures and subtle nuances of electric instruments
— thanks to a huge amount of memory and some very sophisticated programming.
Sweet!
These acoustic instrument sounds also benefit from Yamaha’s sophisticated technology
— and feature a finely detailed and natural sound.
CVP-601 Reference Manual

Voices – Playing the Keyboard –
Drums
Various drum and percussion sounds are assigned to individual keys, letting you play
the sounds from the keyboard.
SFX
Various special effect sounds are assigned to individual keys, letting you play the
sounds from the keyboard.
Organ Flutes!
This authentic organ Voice lets you use the Voice Set to adjust the various footages and
craft your own original organ sounds. See page 16 for details.
MegaVoice
These Voices make special use of velocity switching. Normal voices use velocity
switching, too — to change the sound quality and/or level of a voice according to how
strongly or softly you play it. This makes the voice sound authentic and natural. With
MegaVoices, however, each velocity range (the measure of your playing strength) has a
completely different sound. For example, a guitar MegaVoice includes the sounds of
various performance techniques. In conventional instruments, different Voices having
those sounds would be called up via MIDI and played in combination to achieve the
desired effect. However, now with MegaVoices, a convincing guitar part can be played
with just a single Voice, using specific velocity values to play the desired sounds.
Because of the complex nature of these Voices and the precise velocities need to play
the sounds, they’re not intended for playing from the keyboard. They are, however, very
useful and convenient when creating MIDI data — especially when you want to avoid
using several different Voices just for a single instrument part.
Actual sound maps for the MegaVoices are given in the separate Data List booklet that
comes with your instrument.
NOTE MegaVoices are not compatible with other models even though the model may have those types of Voices installed. Any Song or Style data you’ve created
on the instrument using these Voices will not sound properly when played back on other instruments.
NOTE MegaVoices sound differently depending on the keyboard range, velocity, touch, etc. Hence, if you apply a HARMONY/ ECHO effect, change the trans-
pose setting or change the Voice Set parameters, unexpected or undesired sounds may result.
MEGAEnhancer
– Converting MIDI Songs to Songs for MegaVoice playing –
MEGAEnhancer allows conversion of conventional XG/GM song data to song data optimized for use
with the MegaVoice feature on a compatible instrument or tone generator. MEGAEnhancer makes MIDI
guitar and bass tracks come to life, with enhanced realism and expression. MEGAEnhancer can be
downloaded from the Internet.

Selecting the Harmony/Echo type
This function lets you apply harmonies to your right hand performance according to the chords you play with
your left hand, and trigger automatic echo or tremolo even by pressing a single note or two notes.
2
1
Press the [VOICE EFFECT] button.
2
Turn the Harmony/Echo on by pressing the [I] (HARMONY/ECHO) button.
3
Call up the operation display by pressing the [J] (TYPE SELECT) button.
4
Use the [1] – [3] buttons to select the Harmony/Echo type.
The Harmony/Echo types are divided into the following groups, depending on the particular effect applied.
Voices – Playing the Keyboard –
Harmony Types
These types apply the harmony effect to notes played in the right-hand section of
the keyboard according to the chord specified in the left-hand section of the keyboard. (Note that the “1+5” and “Octave” settings are not affected by the chord.)
Multi Assign Type
This type applies a special effect to chords played in the right-hand section of the
keyboard.
Echo Types
These types apply echo effects to notes played in the right-hand section of the
keyboard in time with the currently set tempo.
 Harmony Types
When one of the Harmony Types is selected, the Harmony effect is applied to the note played in the righthand section of the keyboard according to the type selected above and the chord specified in the chord
section of the keyboard shown below.

 Multi Assign Type
The Multi Assign effect automatically assigns notes played simultaneously on the right-hand section of
the keyboard to separate parts (Voices). Both keyboard parts [RIGHT 1] and [RIGHT 2] should be turned
on when using the Multi Assign effect. The Right 1 and Right 2 Voices are alternately assigned to the
notes in the order you play.
 Echo Types
When one of the Echo Types is selected, the corresponding effect (echo, tremolo, trill) is applied to the
note played in the right-hand section of the keyboard in time with the currently set tempo, regardless of the
[ACMP ON/OFF] and the LEFT part on/off status. Keep in mind that Trill works when you hold down two
notes on the keyboard simultaneously (last two notes if more than two notes are held), and it plays those
notes alternately.
Use the [4] – [8] buttons to select various Harmony/Echo settings.
The available settings differ depending on the Harmony/Echo type.
[4]
VOLUME
This parameter is available for all types with the exception of “Multi
Assign.” It determines the level of the harmony/echo notes generated by
the Harmony/Echo effect.
[5]
SPEED
This parameter is only available when Echo, Tremolo, or Trill is selected
in Type above. It determines the speed of the Echo, Tremolo, and Trill
effects.
[6]
ASSIGN
This parameter is available for all types with the exception of “Multi
Assign.” This lets you determine the keyboard part via which the harmony/echo notes will be sounded.
[7]
CHORD NOTE
ONLY
This parameter is available when one of the Harmony Types is selected.
When this is set to “ON,” the Harmony effect is applied only to the note
(played in the right-hand section of the keyboard) that belongs to a chord
played in the chord section of the keyboard.
[8]
TOUCH LIMIT
This parameter is available for all types with the exception of “Multi
Assign.” It determines the lowest velocity value at which the harmony
note will sound. This allows you to selectively apply the harmony by your
playing strength, letting you create harmony accents in the melody. The
harmony effect is applied when you play the key strongly (above the set
value).

2
Use the [A]/[B] buttons to select the desired scale.
The tuning of each note for the currently selected scale is shown.
 Preset Scale types
8
EQUAL
The pitch range of each octave is divided equally into twelve parts, with each
half-step evenly spaced in pitch. This is the most commonly used tuning in
music today.
PURE MAJOR, PURE
MINOR
These tunings preserve the pure mathematical intervals of each scale, especially
for triad chords (root, third, fifth). You can hear this best in actual vocal harmonies — such as choirs and a cappella singing.
PYTHAGOREAN
This scale was devised by the famous Greek philosopher and is created from a
series of perfect fifths, which are collapsed into a single octave. The 3rd in this
tuning are slightly unstable, but the 4th and 5th are beautiful and suitable for
some leads.
MEAN-TONE
This scale was created as an improvement on the Pythagorean scale, by making
the major third interval more “in tune.” It was especially popular from the 16th
century to the 18th century. Handel, among others, used this scale.
CVP-601 Reference Manual
3
WERCKMEISTER,
KIRNBERGER
This composite scale combines the Werckmeister and Kirnberger systems,
which were themselves improvements on the mean-tone and Pythagorean
scales. The main feature of this scale is that each key has its own unique character. The scale was used extensively during the time of Bach and Beethoven, and
even now it is often used when performing period music on the harpsichord.
ARABIC1, ARABIC2
Use these tunings when playing Arabic music.
Change the following settings as necessary.
[2]
BASE NOTE
Determines the base note for each scale. When the base note is changed,
the pitch of the keyboard is transposed, yet maintains the original pitch
relationship between the notes.

Chord Fingering Types
SINGLE FINGER
Makes it simple to produce orchestrated accompaniment using major, seventh,
minor and minor-seventh chords by pressing a minimum number of keys on the
Chord section of the keyboard. This type is available only for Style playback.
The abbreviated chord fingerings described below are used:
C
For a major chord, press
the root key only.
Cm
3
Cm 7
For a seventh chord, simultaneously press the root key and
a white key to its left.
For a minor-seventh chord,
simultaneously press the root
key and both a white and
black key to its left.
Styles – Playing Rhythm and Accompaniment –
MULTI FINGER
Automatically detects Single Finger or Fingered chord fingerings, so you can
use either type of fingering without having to switch fingering types.
FINGERED
Lets you finger your own chords on the chord section of the keyboard, while
the instrument supplies appropriately orchestrated rhythm, bass, and chord
accompaniment in the selected Style. The Fingered type recognizes the various
chord types which are listed on the separate Data List booklet and can be
looked up using the Chord Tutor function on page 17.
FINGERED ON BASS
Accepts the same fingerings as Fingered, but the lowest note played in the
Chord section of the keyboard is used as the bass note, allowing you to play
“on bass” chords. (In the Fingered mode, the root of the chord is always used
as the bass note.)
FULL KEYBOARD
Detects chords in the entire key range. Chords are detected in a way similar to
Fingered, even if you split the notes between your left and right hands — for
example, playing a bass note with your left hand and a chord with your right, or
by playing a chord with your left hand and a melody note with your right.
AI FINGERED
Basically the same as Fingered, with the exception that less than three notes
can be played to indicate the chords (based on the previously played chord,
etc.).
AI FULL KEYBOARD
When this advanced fingering type is engaged, the instrument will automatically create appropriate accompaniment while you play just about anything,
anywhere on the keyboard using both hands. You don’t have to worry about
specifying the Style chords. Although the AI Full Keyboard type is designed to
work with many songs, some arrangements may not be suitable for use with
this feature. This type is similar to Full Keyboard, with the exception that less
than three notes can be played to indicate the chords (based on the previously
played chord, etc.). 9th, 11th and 13th chords cannot be played. This type is
available only for Style playback.
NOTE “AI” stands for “Artificial Intelligence.”

For a minor chord, simultaneously press the root key
and a black key to its left.

CVP-601 Reference Manual
Realtime Recording
In the BASIC Page, you can create a single Style by recording the individual channels one-by-one, using
realtime recording.
Realtime Recording Characteristics — Loop Recording and Overdub Recording
• Loop Recording
Style playback repeats the rhythm patterns of several measures in a “loop,” and Style recording is also
done using loops. For example, if you start recording with a two-measure MAIN section, the two
measures are repeatedly recorded. Notes that you record will play back from the next repetition (loop),
letting you record while hearing previously recorded material.
• Overdub Recording
This method records new material to a channel already containing recorded data, without deleting the
original data. In Style recording, the recorded data is not deleted, except when using functions such as
Rhythm Clear (page 27) and Delete (page 26).
For example, if you start recording with a two-measure MAIN section, the two measures are repeated
many times. Notes that you record will play back from the next repetition, letting you overdub new
material to the loop while hearing previously recorded material.
When creating a Style based on an existing internal Style, overdub recording is applied only to the
rhythm channels. For all other channels (except rhythm), you need to delete the original data before
recording.
When you want to create a Style based on an existing Style, select the desired Style to
serve as the basis for recording/editing before calling up the Style Creator display.

Rules when recording non-rhythm channels
• Use only the CM7 scale tones when recording the BASS and PHRASE channels (i.e., C, D, E, G,
A, and B).
• Use only the chord tones when recording the CHORD and PAD channels (i.e., C, E, G, and B).
C R C
C R C
C = Chord note
C, R = Recommended note
Using the data recorded here, the auto accompaniment (Style playback) is appropriately converted
depending on the chord changes you make during your performance. The chord which forms the basis for
this note conversion is called the Source Chord, and is set by default to CM7 (as in the example
illustration above).
You can change the Source Chord (its root and type) from the PARAMETER display on page 34. Keep in
mind that when you change the Source Chord from the default CM7 to another chord, the chord notes
and recommended notes will also change. For details on chord notes and recommended notes, see
page 34.
NOTE For the INTRO and ENDING sections, any desired chord or chord progression can be used.

Step Recording
In the EDIT Page, you can record notes with absolutely precise timing. This Step Recording procedure is
essentially the same as that for Song Recording (page 45) with the exception of the points listed below:
• In the Song Creator, the End Mark position can be changed freely; in the Style Creator, it cannot be changed.
This is because the length of the Style is automatically fixed, depending on the selected section. For example, if you create a Style based on a section of four measures length, the End Mark position is automatically
set to the end of the fourth measure, and cannot be changed in the Step Recording display.
• Recording channels can be changed in the Song Creator 1-16 tab display; however, they cannot be changed
in the Style Creator. Select the recording channel in the BASIC tab display.
• In the Style Creator, the channel data can be entered and System Exclusive data can be edited (delete, copy,
or move). You can switch between the two by pressing the [F] button. However, Chord, Lyrics, and System
Exclusive data cannot be entered.

Making Style File Format Settings
The Style File Format (SFF) combines all of Yamaha’s auto accompaniment (Style playback) know-how into
a single unified format. By using the Style Creator, you can take advantage of the power of the SFF format
and freely create your own Styles.
The chart shown below indicates the process by which the Style is played back. (This does not apply to the
rhythm track.) These parameters can be set via the Style Creator feature, in the PARAMETER Page.
Source Pattern settings — SOURCE (PLAY) ROOT/CHORD (page 34)
The Style data is appropriately converted depending on chord changes you make during your
performance. You can create the “Source Pattern” with the Style Creator, which determines how the
played chord will be converted. Here the “Source Chord” (page 34) can be set, allowing you to record
accompaniment channels.

Styles – Playing Rhythm and Accompaniment –
Chord changes via the chord section of the keyboard.
Note Transposition settings — NTR and NTT (page 35)
This parameter group features two parameters that determine how the notes of the Source Pattern are to
be converted in response to chord changes.
Other settings — HIGH KEY, NOTE LIMIT and RTR (page 37)
Using the parameters of this group, you can fine-tune how Style playback responds to the chords you
play. For example, the Note Limit parameter allows you to have the Voices of the Style sound as realistic
as possible by shifting the pitch to an authentic range — ensuring that no notes sound outside the natural
range of the actual instrument (e.g., high bass sounds or low piccolo sounds).
Output
This instrument’s Styles are compatible with SFF GE — an enhanced format of the original SFF with
especially rich, expressive guitar parts.
NOTE The Style files created on this instrument can only be played back on instruments which are compatible with SFF GE.

notes C3, E3 and G3 in the key of C become F3,
A3 and C4 when they are transposed to F. Use
this setting for channels that contain melody
lines.
The note is kept as close as possible to the previous note range. For example, the notes C3, E3

1 QUANTIZE
The Quantize function allows you to align the timing of all the notes in a channel. For example, if you
record the musical phrase shown at right, you may not play it with absolute precision, and your
performance may have been slightly ahead of or behind the precise timing. Quantize is a convenient way
to correct for this.
[2]/
[3]
CHANNEL
Determines which MIDI channel in the Song data is to be quantized.
[4] –
[6]
SIZE
Selects the quantize size (resolution). For optimum results, you should
set the Quantize size to the shortest note value in the channel. For example, if eighth notes are the shortest in the channel, you should use 1/8
note as the Quantize size.

Song Recording via MIDI – Recording Your Performance via MIDI –
Settings:
The three Quantize settings marked with asterisks (*) are exceptionally
convenient, since they allow you to quantize two different note values at
the same time. For example, when the straight eighth notes and eighth
notes triplet are contained in the same channel, if you quantize by the
straight eighth notes, all notes in the channel are quantized to straight
eighth notes — completely eliminating any triplet feel. However, if you
use the eighth note + eighth note triplet setting, both the straight and
triplet notes will be quantized correctly.
[7]/
[8]
STRENGTH
Determines how strongly the notes will be quantized. A setting of 100%
produces exact timing. If a value less than 100% is selected, notes will
be moved toward the specified quantization beats according to the specified percentage. Applying less than 100% quantization lets you preserve some of the “human” feel in the recording.

to all of the parts input to the Mixing Console, DSP1 is applied only to the Style and Song sounds (or applied
to a specific part of the Style or Song depending on the setting), and DSP2-4 are applied to the specific
keyboard parts and Song parts. Use these instructions to set up various effects for blocks and parts to enhance
the sound as desired.

Equalizer (also called “EQ”) is a sound processor that divides the frequency spectrum into multiple bands

correct the sound from speakers to match the special character of the room. For example, you can cut some of
the low range frequencies when playing in large spaces where the sound is too “boomy,” or boost the high
frequencies in rooms and close spaces where the sound is relatively “dead” and free of echoes.

 Assignable Pedal Functions
For functions indicated with “*”, use only the foot controller; proper operation cannot be done with a
footswitch.
ARTICULATION
When you use a Super Articulation Voice that has an effect assigned to the
pedal/footswitch, you can enable the effect by pressing the pedal/footswitch.
You can turn this function on or off for each keyboard part on this display.
VOLUME*
Allows you to use a foot controller to control the volume. This function is
available only for the pedal connected to the instrument’s AUX PEDAL jack.
SUSTAIN
Allows you to use a pedal to control the sustain. When you press and hold the
pedal, all notes played on the keyboard have a longer sustain. Releasing the
pedal immediately stops (damps) any sustained notes. If you are using the right
pedal or connected foot controller, the “HALF PEDAL POINT” parameter
allows you to specify how far down you should press on the pedal until the
damper effect starts working.
SOSTENUTO
Allows you to use a pedal to control the Sostenuto effect. If you play a note or
chord on the keyboard and press the pedal while holding the note(s), the notes
will sustain as long as the pedal is held. However, all subsequent notes will not
sustain. This makes it possible to sustain a chord, for example, while other
notes are played staccato.
10
NOTE This function will not affect any of the Organ Flutes and only some of the Super Articulation Voices, even if
this has been assigned to the Foot Pedals.
SOFT
Allows you to use a pedal to control the Soft effect. Pressing this pedal reduces
the volume and changes the timbre of the notes you play. This is effective only
for certain appropriate Voices. You can turn this pedal function on or off for
each keyboard part on this display. If you are using the right pedal or connected
foot controller, the “HALF PEDAL POINT” parameter allows you to specify
how far down you should press on the pedal until the soft effect starts working.

ALL PARTS
Transmits all parts including the keyboard parts (RIGHT 1, 2, and LEFT), with
the exception of Song parts.
KBD & STYLE
Basically the same as “ALL PARTS” with the exception of how keyboard parts
are managed. The right-hand parts are handled as “UPPER” instead of RIGHT
1 and 2 and the left-hand part is handled as “LOWER.”
Master KBD
In this setting, the instrument functions as a “master” keyboard, playing and
controlling one or more connected tone generators or other devices (such as a
computer/sequencer).
Song
All transmit channels are set to correspond to Song channels 1–16. This is used
to play Song data with an external tone generator and to record Song data to an
external sequencer.
Clock Ext.
Playback or recording (Song, Style, etc.) synchronizes with an external MIDI
clock instead of the instrument’s internal clock. This template should be used
when you wish to set the tempo on the MIDI device connected to the instrument.
MIDI Accord 1
MIDI accordions allow you to transmit MIDI data and play connected tone
generators from the keyboard and bass/chord buttons of the accordion. This
template lets you play melodies from the keyboard and control Style playback
on the instrument with the left-hand buttons.
MIDI Accord 2
Basically the same as “MIDI Accord1” above, with the exception that the
chord/bass notes you play with your left hand on the MIDI Accordion are recognized also as MIDI note events.
MIDI Pedal 1
MIDI pedal units allow you play connected tone generators with your feet
(especially convenient for playing single note bass parts). This template lets
you play/control the chord root in Style playback with a MIDI pedal unit.
MIDI Pedal 2
This template lets you play the bass part for Style playback by using a MIDI
pedal unit.
MIDI OFF
No MIDI signals are sent or received.

[8] buttons.
Connections – Using Your Instrument with Other Devices –
1 Local Control
Turns the Local Control for each part on or off. When Local Control is set to “ON,” the keyboard of the
instrument controls its own (local) internal tone generator, allowing the internal Voices to be played
directly from the keyboard. If you set Local to “OFF,” the keyboard and controllers are internally
disconnected from the instrument’s tone generator section so that no sound is output when you play the
keyboard or use the controllers. For example, this allows you to use an external MIDI sequencer to play
the instrument’s internal Voices, and use the instrument keyboard to record notes to the external sequencer
and/or play an external tone generator.
2 Clock setting, etc.
 CLOCK
Determines whether the instrument is controlled by its own internal clock or a MIDI clock signal received
from an external device. INTERNAL is the normal Clock setting when the instrument is being used alone
or as a master keyboard to control external devices. If you are using the instrument with an external
sequencer, MIDI computer, or other MIDI device, and you want to synchronize it to that device, set this
parameter to the appropriate setting: MIDI, USB 1, or USB 2. In this case, make sure that the external
device is connected properly (e.g., to the instrument’s MIDI IN terminal), and that it is properly
transmitting a MIDI clock signal. When this is set for control by an external device (MIDI, USB 1 or USB
2), the Tempo is indicated as “Ext.” in the Main display.
10
NOTE If the Clock is set to something other than INTERNAL, the Style or Song cannot be played from the panel buttons.
 TRANSMIT CLOCK
Turns MIDI clock (F8) transmission on or off. When set to OFF, no MIDI clock or Start/Stop data is
transmitted even if a Song or Style is played back.
 RECEIVE TRANSPOSE
Determines whether or not the instrument’s transpose setting is applied to the note events received by the
instrument via MIDI.
 START/STOP
Determines whether incoming FA (start) and FC (stop) messages affect Song or Style playback.
3 MESSAGE SW (Message Switch)
 SYS/EX.
The “Tx” setting turns MIDI transmission of MIDI System Exclusive messages on or off. The “Rx” setting
turns MIDI reception and recognition of MIDI System Exclusive messages generated by external
equipment on or off.
 CHORD SYS/EX.
The “Tx” setting turns MIDI transmission of MIDI Chord System Exclusive data (chord detect, root and
type) on or off. The “Rx” setting turns MIDI reception and recognition of MIDI chord exclusive data
generated by external equipment on or off.

messages received at the channel(s) set to “ON” are recognized as the notes for detecting chords in Style
playback. The chords to be detected depend on the fingering type. The chord types will be detected
regardless of the [ACMP ON/OFF] or Split Point settings. When several channels are simultaneously set to
“ON,” the chord type is detected from merged MIDI data received over the channels.
