IMPORTANT —Check your power supply—
Clavinova Web site
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. The voltage selector is set at 240V when the unit is initially shipped. To change
the setting use a "minus" screwdriver to rotate the selector dial so that the correct voltage appears next to the pointer on the panel.

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/Power cord
Water warning
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required
voltage is printed on the name plate of the instrument.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have
accumulated on it.
• 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.
• Use only the supplied power cord/plug.
• Do not place the power 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.
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
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.
• If the power 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 electric 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/Power cord
Location
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold
the plug itself and not the cord. Pulling by the cord can damage it.
• Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the instrument is not to be used
for extended periods of time, or during electrical storms.
• 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 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.
• 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.
Assembly
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables.
• Read carefully the attached documentation explaining the assembly process.
Failure to assemble the instrument in the proper sequence might result in
damage to the instrument or even injury.
• When setting up the product, make sure that the AC outlet you are using is
easily accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off
the power switch and disconnect the plug from the outlet. Even when the power
switch is turned off, electricity is still flowing to the product at the minimum
level. When you are not using the product for a long time, make sure to unplug
the power cord from the wall AC outlet.

Connections
Using the bench (If included)
• 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.
Maintenance
• (CVP-309 including grand piano type) Gently remove dust and dirt with a soft
cloth. Do not wipe too hard since small particles of dirt can scratch the
instrument's finish.
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry or slightly damp cloth. Do not use
paint thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping
cloths.
• Do not place the bench in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall
over.
• Do not play carelessly with or stand on the bench. Using it as a tool or stepladder or for any other purpose might result in accident or injury.
• Only one person should sit on the bench at a time, in order to prevent the
possibility of accident or injury.
• (CVP-309 including grand piano type) Do not attempt to adjust the bench height
while sitting on the bench, since this can cause excessive force to be imposed
on the adjustment mechanism, possibly resulting in damage to the mechanism
or even injury.
• If the bench screws become loose due to extensive long-term use, tighten them
periodically using the included tool.
Saving data
Saving and backing up your data
Handling caution
• Take care that the key cover does not pinch your fingers, and do not insert a
finger or hand in any gaps on the key cover or instrument.
• Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the key
cover, 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.
• The data of the types listed below are lost when you turn off the power to the
instrument. Save the data to the USER tab display (page 26), floppy disk,
SmartMedia card, or appropriate external media.
• Recorded/Edited Songs (page 41, 137, 152)
• Created/Edited Styles (page 111)
• Edited Voices (page 93)
• Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might
discolor the panel or keyboard.
• Memorized One Touch Settings (page 50)
• Edited MIDI settings (page 196)
• (CVP-309 including grand piano type) Bumping the surface of the instrument
with metal, porcelain, or other hard objects can cause the finish to crack or peel.
Use caution.
Data in the USER tab display (page 26) may be lost due to malfunction or
incorrect operation. Save important data to a floppy disk, SmartMedia card, or
external media.
• 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.
When you change settings in a display page and then exit from that page,
System Setup data (listed in the Parameter Chart of the separate Data List
booklet) is automatically stored. However, this edited data is lost if you turn
off the power without properly exiting from the relevant display.
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.

Welcome to the Wonderful Musical World of the Clavinova CVP!
Authentic Acoustic Piano-like Touch
Introduction
Natural Wood Keyboard (CVP-309 including grand piano type)
The special Natural Wood keyboard of the CVP-309 uses real-wood white keys, to
reproduce as closely as possible the experience of playing an actual acoustic grand
piano. The authentic touch and feel of the keys goes far beyond existing electronic
keyboards, realistically recreating the hardness of the keys, the balance between the
weight of the key and hammer, and the characteristic weight gradations of the keys –
heavy in the low end, light in the high register – to make you feel as if you’re playing a
real grand piano. Moreover, this specially crafted keyboard lets you use techniques
only possible on grand pianos, such as playing the same note successively and having
the sounds blend smoothly even without use of the damper pedal, or playing the same
key quickly and having perfect articulation without the sound cutting off unnaturally.
GH3 Keyboard (CVP-307)
This feature provides authentic, realistic keyboard response – much like the playing
feel of a grand piano – with the lower keys being heavy in touch, the higher keys light,
and all the natural gradations in between. Moreover, this specially crafted keyboard
lets you use techniques only possible on grand pianos, such as playing the same note
successively and having the sounds blend smoothly even without use of the damper
pedal, or playing the same key quickly and having perfect articulation without the
sound cutting off unnaturally.
The Acoustic Ambience of a Grand Piano
—with the iAFC Feature
Turn on the iAFC (Instrumental Active Field Control) effect, and hear the sound expand
around you, as if you’re playing on stage in a concert hall. The overall sound is deeper
and more resonant, especially when using the damper pedal, recreating and emphasizing the natural sounds of true acoustic instruments.
Playing the Clavinova
Playing Piano Voices ................................................................. page 28
With just the press of a button, you can reconfigure the entire Clavinova for
optimum piano performance, no matter what settings you’ve made from the
panel. Now you can enjoy performing and practicing with authentic grand
piano sounds and response—instantly.

Playing Other Instrument Voices ..............................................page 31
The Clavinova gives you not only various realistic piano Voices, but also features an
exceptionally wide variety of authentic instruments, both acoustic and electronic.

Handling the Floppy Disk Drive (FDD) and Floppy Disks
(The floppy disk drive may be included or
optional, depending on your locale. For instructions on installing the floppy disk drive, see
page 212.)
CAUTION
Do not remove the floppy disk or turn off the instrument
itself while the disk is being accessed.
Doing so may result not only in loss of data on the disk
but also damage to the floppy disk drive.
• Be sure to remove the floppy disk from the disk drive
before turning off the power. A floppy disk left in the
drive for extended periods can easily pick up dust and
dirt that can cause data-read and -write errors.
Floppy Disk Compatibility
Cleaning the Disk Drive Read/Write Head
• 3.5" 2DD and 2HD type floppy disks can be used.
• Clean the read/write head regularly. This instrument
employs a precision magnetic read/write head which,
after an extended period of use, will pick up a layer of
magnetic particles from the disks used that will eventually cause read and write errors.
• To maintain the disk drive in optimum working order
Yamaha recommends that you use a commercially-available dry-type head cleaning disk to clean the head about
once a month. Ask your Yamaha dealer about the availability of proper headcleaning disks.
Formatting a Floppy Disk
• If you find that you are unable to use new, blank disks or
old disks that have been used with other devices, you
may need to format them. For details on how to format a
disk, see page 62. Keep in mind that all data on the disk
will be lost after formatting. Make sure to check beforehand whether or not the disk contains important data.
n
Floppy disks formatted on this device may or may not be useable
as is on other devices.
Inserting/Removing Floppy Disks
Inserting a Floppy Disk into the Disk
Drive:
• Hold the disk so that the label of the disk is facing
upward and the sliding shutter is facing forward, towards
the disk slot. Carefully insert the disk into the slot, slowly
pushing it all the way in until it clicks into place and the
eject button pops out.
n
Never insert anything but floppy disks into the disk drive. Other
objects may cause damage to the disk drive or floppy disks.
Removing a Floppy Disk
• After checking that the instrument is not accessing* the
floppy disk (checking that the use lamp on the floppy
disk drive is off), firmly press the eject button at the
upper right of the disk slot all the way in.
When the floppy disk is ejected, pull it out of the drive. If
the floppy disk cannot be removed because it is stuck,
do not try to force it, but instead try pressing the eject
button again, or try re-inserting the disk and attempt to
eject it again.
* Access of the disk indicates an active operation, such as
recording, playback, or deletion of data.
If a floppy disk is inserted while the power is on, the disk is
automatically accessed, since the instrument checks whether
the disk has data.
Introduction
The floppy disk drive lets you save original data you’ve created on the instrument to floppy disk, and allows you to
load data from floppy disk to the instrument.
Be sure to handle floppy disks and treat the disk drive with
care. Follow the important precautions below.
About Floppy Disks
Handle floppy disks with care, and follow these precautions:
• Do not place heavy objects on a disk or bend or apply
pressure to the disk in any way. Always keep floppy disks
in their protective cases when they are not in use.
• Do not expose the disk to direct sunlight, extremely high
or low temperatures, or excessive humidity, dust or liquids.
• Do not open the sliding shutter and touch the exposed
surface of the floppy disk inside.
• Do not expose the disk to magnetic fields, such as those
produced by televisions, speakers, motors, etc., since
magnetic fields can partially or completely erase data on
the disk, rendering it unreadable.
• Never use a floppy disk with a deformed shutter or housing.
• Do not attach anything other than the provided labels to
a floppy disk. Also make sure that labels are attached in
the proper location.
To Protect Your Data (Write-protect Tab):
• To prevent accidental erasure of important data, slide the
disk's write-protect tab to the “protect” position (tab
open). When saving data, make sure that the disk's
write-protect tab is set to the “overwrite” position (tab
closed).

handle SmartMedia cards with care. Follow the important
precautions below.
About SmartMedia Cards
Compatible SmartMedia Types
Handle SmartMedia cards with care,
and follow these precautions:
• 3.3V (3V) SmartMedia can be used. 5V type SmartMedia
is not compatible with this instrument.
• SmartMedia cards of seven different memory capacities
of (2MB, 4MB, 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.
n
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 62. 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.
n
SmartMedia cards formatted on this device may or may not be
useable as is on other devices.
Inserting/Removing SmartMedia Cards
Inserting SmartMedia Cards
• Insert the SmartMedia card with the terminal (goldplated) side face down into the card slot, until it clicks
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
• After making sure that the instrument is not accessing*
the SmartMedia card, insert the card until it clicks into
place and release it. When the SmartMedia card is
ejected, pull it out of the drive. If the card cannot be
removed because it is stuck, do not try to force it, but
instead try re-inserting the card completely into the slot
and attempt to eject it again.
* 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.
22
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.
CVP-309/307 Owner’s Manual
• 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):
• 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.

Using the Pedals
The Clavinova features three pedals.
Left Pedal
Damper Pedal
Sostenuto Pedal
● Damper Pedal (Right)
The damper pedal performs the same function as the damper
pedal on an actual acoustic piano, letting you sustain the sound
of the voices even after releasing the keys.
n • Some Voices may sound continuously or have a long decay after
the notes have been released while the damper pedal is held.
• Certain Voices in the “PERCUSSION & DRUM KIT,” “GM&XG”
and “GM2” groups may not be affected by use of the damper
pedal.
When you press the damper
pedal here, the notes you play
before you release the pedal have
a longer sustain.
● Sostenuto Pedal (Center)
If you play a note or chord on the keyboard and press the sostenuto pedal while holding the note(s), the notes will sustain as
long as the pedal is held. All subsequent notes will not sustain.
n • Certain Voices, such as [STRINGS] or [BRASS], sustain continuously when the sostenuto pedal is pressed.
• Certain Voices in the “PERCUSSION & DRUM KIT”, “GM&XG”
and “GM2” groups may not be affected by use of the sostenuto
pedal.
When you press the sostenuto
pedal here while holding the
note(s), the notes will sustain as
long as you hold the pedal.
● Left Pedal
When the Piano voice is selected, pressing this pedal reduces the volume and slightly changes the timbre of the notes
you play.
The settings assigned to this pedal may differ depending on the selected Voice.
n The depth of the left pedal effect can be adjusted (page 95).

Voice Characteristics
Using, Creating and Editing Voices
The Voice type and its defining characteristics are indicated above the Preset Voice
name.
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, Dynamic 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 sound so finely detailed and natural,
you’ll swear you’re playing the real thing!
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 Sound Creator to adjust the
various footages and craft your own original organ sounds. See page 97
for details.
Mega Voice
The Mega Voices are not intended to be played from the keyboard. They
are primarily designed for use with recorded MIDI sequence data (such
as songs and styles). Some of the guitar and bass Voices in particular
have been created as Mega Voices for the Clavinova, and are easily distinguished from the normal Voices by their icons in the Voice Selection
display.
What makes Mega Voices special is their use of velocity switching. Normal Voices use velocity switching, too—to make the sound quality and/
or level of a Voice according to how strongly or softly you play it. This
makes the Clavinova Voices sound authentic and natural. However,
with Mega Voices, each velocity range (the measure of your playing
strength) has a completely different sound.
For example, a Mega guitar Voice 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 Mega Voices, 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.
Live!Drums
These are high-quality drum sounds taking full advantage of Stereo
Sampling and Dynamic Sampling.
Live!SFX
These are high-quality Latin percussion sounds taking full advantage of
Stereo Sampling and Dynamic sampling. They give you a broader and
more versatile range of Latin percussion than the normal drum Voices.
Mega Voices Compatibility
Mega Voices are unique to the
Clavinova and are not compatible with other models. Any song/
style data you’ve created on the
Clavinova using the Mega Voices
will not sound properly when
played back on other instruments.

Playing Different Voices Simultaneously
Playing Different Voices Simultaneously
Reference
The Clavinova keyboard features various functions and performance conveniences
that are simply unavailable on an acoustic instrument. It allows you to play several
different Voices together in a layer, or play one Voice with your left hand while you
play a different Voice (or even two layered Voices!) with your right.
Keyboard Parts (Right 1, Right 2, Left)
Voices can be assigned independently to each keyboard part: Right 1, Right 2, and
Left. You can combine these parts by using the PART ON/OFF buttons to create a
rich, ensemble sound.
■ Playing a single Voice (Right 1 part)
You can play a single Voice over the entire keyboard range. This is used for normal performance—for example, with the piano Voice.

Enhancing the Acoustic Realism of the Sound (iAFC)
Enhancing the Acoustic Realism of
the Sound (iAFC)
iAFC cannot be used in the
following cases.
• (CVP-309 grand piano type)
When the lid is closed or open
with the shorter stay.
• When the Speaker setting is
Headphones SW (page 17),
and headphones are connected.
• When the Speaker setting is
Off.
Using, Creating and Editing Voices
When using iAFC, do not block
or cover the speaker located on
the underside of the keyboard
(CVP-309 grand piano type) or
the rear panel (CVP-309/307) of
the Clavinova. The optimal iAFC
effect cannot be obtained if this
speaker is blocked.
iAFC uses Yamaha’s EMR (Electronic Microphone Rotator) technology to ensure stability against
acoustic feedback.
When iAFC is engaged (the default setting is ON), the Clavinova will sound deeper
and more resonant, similar to an acoustic musical instrument. Sounds picked up by
a microphone and sounds produced internally by the Clavinova are processed and
output from the rear speaker to enhance the acoustic realism of the sound. The iAFC
processing is most effective with the grand piano Voice (the one selected by pressing
the PIANO button).
Turning on the iAFC of the CVP-309 grand piano type
To turn on the iAFC, open the lid with the longer stay using the inner recess.
When the lid is closed or open with the shorter stay, the iAFC will not be
turned on.
Selecting the iAFC Type and Adjusting the
Depth
This section describes how to adjust various iAFC settings, such as selecting the
iAFC type and adjusting the depth.
There are three iAFC types as shown below. Select the desired type: stage ambience simulation or acoustic piano resonance simulation. Each type consists of
three sub-types. The depth can also be set for each type.

Enhancing the Acoustic Realism of the Sound (iAFC)
• NATURAL SOUND BOARD
This enhances the acoustic realism of the sound by recreating the resonance characteristics of acoustic instruments. When used on a grand
piano sound, it produces a more natural-sounding piano. The sound of the
instrument itself is picked up by a microphone, and processed to create a
virtual soundboard.
• SPATIAL ENSEMBLE Effect
This lets you experience the ambience and reverberation that are characteristic of performing on stage. Ambience and reverberation are also
added to the performance of the musicians playing together with you, letting you enjoy the sensation of playing together on stage. The sound of the
instrument itself and the sound of singing and other instruments played
nearby is picked up by a microphone, and processed to simulate the spatial characteristics of performing together on stage.

Note on using calibration
While calibration is being performed, do not make audible
noises in the vicinity of the
Clavinova. If any extraneous
sounds are made in the vicinity
of the Clavinova during calibration, the calibration may abort,
and the settings will reset to their
default values. If this occurs, you
should perform the calibration
once again.
If the iAFC effect is slight or inaudible:
If it seems that iAFC is not effective when playing back Songs or Styles, turn

Preset Scale Types
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.
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.
ARABIC
Use these tunings when playing Arabic music.

Effect Parameters
You can use a pedal to turn the
Harmony/Echo effects on and off
(page 186).
Portamento:
Portamento is a function that creates a smooth transition in pitch
from the first note played on the
keyboard to the next. The portamento time (the pitch transition
time) can be set via the MIXING
CONSOLE display (page 84).
HARMONY/ECHO
The Harmony/Echo types are applied to the right-hand Voices (page 81).
MONO/POLY
This determines whether the part’s Voice is played monophonically
(only one note at a time) or polyphonically. Using the MONO mode
lets you play single, lead sounds (such as brass instruments) more realistically. It also lets you expressively control the Portamento effect
(depending on the selected Voice) by playing legato.
DSP/DSP VARIATION
With the digital effects built into the Clavinova, you can add ambience
and depth to your music in a variety of ways—such as adding reverb
that makes you sound like you are playing in a concert hall.
• The DSP switch is used to turn the DSP (Digital Signal Processor)
effect on or off for the currently selected keyboard part.
• The DSP Variation switch is used to change between variations of the
DSP effect. You could use this while you play, for example, to change
the rotating speed (slow/fast) of the rotary speaker effect.
DSP:
Stands for Digital Signal Processor (or Processing). DSP changes
and enhances the audio signal in
the digital realm to produce a
wide range of effects.

● Multi Assign Type
Multi Assign effect automatically assigns notes played simultaneously in the right-hand
section of the keyboard to separate parts (Voices). Both of the keyboard part [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.

Editing the Volume and Tonal Balance (MIXING CONSOLE)
Using, Creating and Editing Voices
Harmony/Echo Settings
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).

The Mixing Console gives you intuitive control over aspects of the keyboard parts
and Song/Style channels, including volume balance and the timbre of the sounds.
It lets you adjust the levels and stereo position (pan) of each Voice to set the optimum balance and stereo image, and lets you set how the effects are applied.

EQ (Equalizer)
Equalizer (also called “EQ”) is a sound processor that divides the frequency spectrum into multiple bands that can be boosted or cut as required to tailor the overall
frequency response. Usually an equalizer is used to 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. The Clavinova possesses a high-grade fiveband digital EQ. With this function, a final effect—tone control can be added to the
output of your instrument. You can select one of the five preset EQ settings in the
EQ display. You can even create your own custom EQ settings by adjusting the frequency bands, and save the settings to one of two User Master EQ types.

Master Compressor
Compressor is an effect commonly used to limit and compress the dynamics (softness/loudness) of an audio signal. For signals that vary widely in dynamics, such as
vocals and guitar parts, it “squeezes” the dynamic range, effectively making soft
sounds louder and loud sounds softer. When used with gain to boost the overall
level, this creates a more powerful, more consistently high-level sound. Compression can be used to increase sustain for electric guitar, smooth out the volume of a
vocal, or bring a drum kit or rhythm pattern further up-front in the mix. The Clavinova has a sophisticated multi-band compressor that allows you to adjust the compression effect for individual frequency bands—giving you detailed sonic control.
You can edit and save your own custom Compressor types, or conveniently select
from one of the presets.

Editable Parameters in the SOUND CREATOR [ORGAN FLUTES]
displays
The following covers in detail the editable parameters that are set in the displays
explained in step 3 of the “Basic Procedure” on page 97. The Organ Flutes parameters are organized into three different pages. The parameters in each page are
described separately, below. These are also treated as part of the Voice Set parameters (page 100), which are automatically called up when the Voice is selected.
FOOTAGE, VOLUME/ATTACK (common parameters)
Specifies the type of organ tone generation to be simulated: Sine or
Vintage.
ROTARY SP SPEED
Alternately switches between the slow and fast rotary speaker
speeds when a rotary speaker effect is selected for the Organ Flutes
(see “EFFECT/EQ” DSP TYPE parameter on page 97), and the Voice
Effect DSP (page 97) is turned on (this parameter has the same effect
as the Voice Effect VARIATION ON/OFF parameter).
VIBRATO ON/OFF
Alternately turns the vibrato effect for the Organ Flutes Voice ON or
OFF.
VIBRATO DEPTH
Sets the Vibrato depth to one of three levels: 1 (low), 2 (mid), or 3
(high).
Using, Creating and Editing Voices
ORGAN TYPE
FOOTAGE
16' ← → 5 1/3'
Switches the controllable footage (by using the [D] button), between 16'
and 5 1/3'.
16'–1'
Determines the basic sound of the organ flutes. The longer the pipe, the
lower the pitch of the sound. Hence, the 16' setting determines the lowest pitched component of the Voice, while the 1' setting determines the
highest pitched component. The higher the value of the setting, the
greater the volume of the corresponding footage. Mixing various volumes of the footages lets you create your own distinctive organ sounds.
Footage:
The term “footage” is a reference
to the sound generation of traditional pipe organs, in which the
sound is produced by pipes of
different lengths (in feet).
VOLUME/ATTACK
VOL
Adjusts the overall volume of the Organ Flutes. The longer the
graphic bar, the greater the volume.
RESP
Affects both the attack and release (page 96) portion of the sound,
increasing or decreasing the response time of the initial swell and
release, based on the FOOTAGE controls. The higher the value, the
slower the swell and release.
VIBRATO SPEED
Determines the speed of the vibrato effect controlled by the Vibrato
On/Off and Vibrato Depth above.
MODE
The MODE control selects between two modes: FIRST and EACH.
In the FIRST mode, attack is applied only to the first notes played
and held simultaneously; while the first notes are held, any subsequently played notes have no attack applied. In the EACH mode,
attack is applied equally to all notes.
4', 2 2/3', 2'
These determine the attack sound volume of the ORGAN FLUTE
Voice. The 4', 2-2/3' and 2' controls increase or reduce the volume
of attack sound at the corresponding footages. The longer the
graphic bar, the greater the attack sound volume.
LENG
Affects the attack portion of the sound producing a longer or shorter
decay immediately after the initial attack. The longer the graphic
bar, the longer the decay.

SOUND CREATOR displays, including effects and EQ. Usually these settings
are automatically called up when a Voice is selected. However, you can also
disable this feature by the operation in the relevant display as explained

Style Characteristics
The Style type and its defining characteristics are indicated above the Preset Style
name.
These Styles provide professional and exciting arrangements combined
with perfect playability. The resulting accompaniment exactly follows the
chords of the player. As a result, your chord changes and colorful harmonies are instantly transformed into lifelike musical accompaniment.
Session
These Styles provide even greater realism and authentic backing by
mixing in original chord types and changes, as well as special riffs with
chord changes, with the Main sections. These have been programmed
to add “spice” and a professional touch to your performances of certain
songs and in certain genres. Keep in mind, however, that the Styles may
not necessarily be appropriate—or even harmonically correct—for all
songs and for all chord playing. In some cases for example, playing a
simple major triad for a country song may result in a “jazzy” seventh
chord, or playing an on-bass chord may result in inappropriate or unexpected accompaniment.
Pianist
These special Styles provide piano-only accompaniment. Just by playing the proper chords with your left hand, you can automatically add
complicated, professional-sounding arpeggios and bass/chord patterns.

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 at right are
used:

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

simultaneously press the root key a
both a white and black key to its left
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 CVP 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 (page 48).
FINGERED ON
BASS
Accepts the same fingerings as the 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 CVP 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.
Playing Only the Rhythm Channels
of a Style
Rhythm is one of the most important parts of a Style. Try to play the melody along
with just the rhythm. You can sound different rhythms for each Style. Keep in mind,
however, that not all Styles contain rhythm channels.

• Stop Accompaniment
When [ACMP ON/OFF] is turned on and [SYNC START] is off, you can play
chords in the chord section of the keyboard with the Style stopped, and still hear
the accompaniment chord. In this condition—called “Stop Accompaniment”—
any valid chord fingerings are recognized and the chord root/type are shown in
the display.
From the display in page 104, you can determine whether the chord played in
the chord section will sound or not in the Stop Accompaniment status.
OFF...............................The chord played in the chord section will not sound.
STYLE ...........................The chord played in the chord section will sound via the
Voices of the selected Style.
FIXED ...........................The chord played in the chord section will sound via the
specified Voice, regardless of the selected Style.
• OTS Link Timing
This applies to the OTS Link function (page 50). This parameter determines the
timing in which the One Touch Settings change with the MAIN VARIATION [A]–
[D] change. (The [OTS LINK] button must be on.)
Data that is recorded when
recording a Song
Please note that both the Voice
that is sounded and the chord
data will be recorded when set
to “STYLE,” and only the chord
data will be recorded when set
to “OFF” or “FIXED.”
Real Time .....................One Touch Setting is immediately called up when you
press a MAIN VARIATION button.
Next Bar ......................One Touch Setting is called up at the next measure, after
you press a MAIN VARIATION button.
Using, Creating and Editing the Auto Accompaniment Styles
• Synchro Stop Window
This determines how long you can hold a chord before the Synchro Stop function
is automatically cancelled. When the [SYNC STOP] button is turned on and this
is set to a value other than “OFF,” this automatically cancels the Synchro Stop
function if you hold a chord for longer than the time set here. This conveniently
resets Style playback control to normal, letting you release the keys and still have
the Style play.
• Style Touch
Turns touch response for the Style playback on/off. When this is set to “ON,” the
Style volume changes in response to your playing strength in the chord section of
the keyboard.
• Section Set
Determines the default section that is automatically called up when selecting different Styles (when Style playback is stopped). When set to “OFF” and Style playback is stopped, the active section is maintained even if the different Style is
selected.
When any of the MAIN A-D sections is not included in the Style data, the nearest
section is automatically selected. For example, when MAIN D is not contained in
the selected Style, MAIN C will be called up.

You can create your own Styles—recording them by yourself or by combining the
internal Style data. The created Styles can be edited.
Style Structure
Styles are made up of fifteen different sections and each section has eight separate
channels. With the Style Creator feature, you can create a Style by separately
recording the channels, or by importing pattern data from other existing Styles.

Creating a Style
You can use one of the three different methods described below to create a Style.
The created Styles can also be edited (page 117).
■ Realtime Recording ➤ See page 112
This method lets you record the Style by simply playing the instrument. You can
select an internal Style that most closely matches your image of the Style you want
to create and then re-record parts of the Style as desired, or you can create a new
Style from scratch.
■ Step Recording ➤ See page 115
This method is like writing music notation on paper, since it allows you to enter
each note or individually, and specify its length.
This allows you to create a Style without having to play the parts on the instrument,
since you can enter each event manually.
■ Style Assembly ➤ See page 116
This convenient feature lets you create composite Styles by combining various patterns from the internal preset Styles. For example, if you want to create your own
original 8-beat Style, you could take rhythm patterns from the “Live8Beat” Style,
use the bass pattern from “Cool8Beat” Style and import the chord patterns from the
“8BeatModern” Style—combining the various elements to create one Style.

Realtime Recording (BASIC)
Create a single Style by recording the individual channels one-by-one, using realtime recording.
Realtime Recording Characteristics
• 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.
Using, Creating and Editing the Auto Accompaniment Styles
• 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 114) and
Delete (page 113). 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),
delete the original data before recording.
When using realtime recording based on the internal Styles:
Overdub recording possible.

When recording channels BASSPHR2 based on an internal Style,
delete the original data before
recording. Overdub recording is
not possible on channels BASSPHR2 (see above).

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 121. 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 122.

Using, Creating and Editing the Auto Accompaniment Styles
In the EDIT display, you can record notes with absolutely precise timing. This Step
Recording procedure is essentially the same as that for Song Recording (page 115),
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, only the channel data can be entered and the System Exclusive messages can be edited. You can switch between the two types of lists by
pressing the [F] button. Chord and Lyrics data are not available.

■ GROOVE
This lets you add swing to the music or change the “feel” of the beat by making
subtle shifts in the timing (clock) of the Style. The Groove settings are applied to all
channels of the selected Style.
Specifies the beats to which Groove timing is to be applied. In other
words, if “8 Beat” is selected, Groove timing is applied to the 8th notes;
if “12 Beat” is selected, Groove timing is applied to 8th-note triplets.
BEAT CONVERTER
Actually changes the timing of the beats (specified in the ORIGINAL
BEAT parameter above) to the selected value. For example, when
ORIGINAL BEAT is set to “8 Beat” and BEAT CONVERTER is set to “12,”
all 8th notes in the section are shifted to 8th-note triplet timing. The
“16A” and “16B” Beat Converter which appear when ORIGINAL BEAT
is set to “12 Beat” are variations on a basic 16th-note setting.
SWING
Produces a “swing” feel by shifting the timing of the back beats,
depending on the ORIGINAL BEAT parameter above. For example, if
the specified ORIGINAL BEAT value is “8 Beat,” the Swing parameter
will selectively delay the 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th beats of each measure
to create a swing feel. The settings “A” through “E” produce different
degrees of swing, with “A” being the most subtle and “E” being the most
pronounced.
FINE
Selects a variety of Groove “templates” to be applied to the selected
section. The “PUSH” settings cause certain beats to be played early,
while “HEAVY” settings delay the timing of certain beats. The numbered
settings (2, 3, 4, 5) determine which beats are to be affected. All beats
up to the specified beat—but not including the first beat—will be
played early or delayed (for example, the 2nd and 3rd beats, if “3” is
selected). In all cases, “A” types produce minimum effect, “B” types
produce medium effect, and “C” types produce maximum effect.

■ DYNAMICS
This changes the velocity/volume (or accent) of certain notes in the Style playback.
The Dynamics settings are applied to each channel or all channels of the selected

CHANNEL
Selects the desired channel (part) to which Dynamics is to be applied.
ACCENT TYPE
Determines the type of accent applied—in other words, which notes in
the part(s) are emphasized with the Dynamics settings.
STRENGTH
Determines how strongly the selected Accent Type (above) will be
applied. The higher the value, the stronger the effect.
EXPAND/COMP.
Expands or compresses the range of velocity values. Values higher than
100% expand the dynamic range, while values lower than 100% compress it.
BOOST/CUT
Boosts or cuts all velocity values in the selected section/channel. Values
above 100% boost the overall velocity, while values below 100%
reduce it.

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 at left 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.
• Other Settings
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., very low notes of a piccolo sound).

and NTT BASS to “OFF” then
change the newly displayed
“Play Root” and “Play Chord”
parameters to the desired settings.
Press the [I] (SAVE) button to call up the Style Selection display to
save your data.
Save the data in the Style Selection display (page 63).
■ SOURCE ROOT/CHORD
These settings determine the original key of the source pattern (i.e., the key used
when recording the pattern). The default setting of CM7 (with a Source Root of “C”
and a Source Type of “M7”), is automatically selected whenever the preset data is
deleted prior to recording a new Style, regardless of the Source Root and Chord
included in the preset data. When you change Source Root/Chord from the default
CM7 to another chord, the chord notes and recommended notes will also change,
depending on the newly selected chord type.

When the root note is transposed, the
pitch relationship between notes is
maintained. For example, the notes
C3, E3 and G3 in the key of C become

■ NTT (Note Transposition Table)
This sets the note transposition table for the source pattern.
When NTR is set to ROOT FIXED, the transposition table used does not
do any note conversion. When NTR is set to ROOT TRANS, the table
used only converts the root note.
MELODY
Suitable for melody line transposition. Use this for melody channels
such as Phrase 1 and Phrase 2.
CHORD
Suitable for chord transposition. Use this for the Chord 1 and Chord 2
channels, especially when they contain piano or guitar-like chordal
parts.
MELODIC MINOR
When the played chord changes from a major to a minor chord, this
table lowers the third interval in the scale by a semitone. When the
chord changes from a minor to a major chord, the minor third interval is
raised by a semitone. Other notes are not changed. Use this for melody
channels of Sections which respond only to major/minor chords, such
as Intros and Endings.
MELODIC MINOR
5th
In addition to the Melodic Minor transposition above, augmented and
diminished chords affect the 5th note of the Source Pattern.
HARMONIC
MINOR
When the played chord changes from a major to a minor chord, this
table lowers the third and sixth intervals in the scale by a semitone.
When the chord changes from a minor to a major chord, the minor
third and flatted sixth intervals are raised by a semitone. Other notes are
not changed. Use this for chord channels of Sections which respond
only to major/minor chords, such as Intros and Endings.
HARMONIC
MINOR 5th
In addition to the Harmonic Minor transposition above, augmented and
diminished chords affect the 5th note of the Source pattern.
NATURAL MINOR
When the played chord changes from a major to a minor chord, this
table lowers the third, sixth and seventh intervals in the scale by a semitone. When the chord changes from a minor to a major chord, the
minor third, flatted sixth and flatted seventh intervals are raised by a
semitone. Other notes are not changed. Use this for chord channels of
Sections which respond only to a Major/minor chord such as Intros and
Endings.
NATURAL MINOR
5th
In addition to the Natural Minor transposition above, augmented and
diminished chords affect the 5th note of the Source pattern.
DORIAN
When the played chord changes from a major to a minor chord, this
table lowers the third and seventh intervals in the scale by a semitone.
When the chord changes from a minor to a major chord, the minor
third and flatted seventh intervals are raised by a semitone. Other notes
are not changed. Use this for chord channels of Sections which respond
only to a Major/minor chord such as Intros and Endings.
DORIAN 5th
In addition to the Dorian transposition above, augmented and diminished chords affect the 5th note of the Source pattern.

■ HIGH KEY
This sets the highest key (upper octave limit) of the note transposition for the chord
root change. Any notes calculated to be higher than the highest key are transposed
down to the next lowest octave. This setting is available only when the NTR parameter (page 122) is set to “Root Trans.”
Example—When the highest key is F.

■ NOTE LIMIT
This sets the note range (highest and lowest notes) for voices recorded to the style
channels. By judicious setting of this range, you can ensure that the voices sound
as realistic as possible—in other words, that no notes outside the natural range are
sounded (e.g., high bass sounds or low piccolo sounds). The actual notes that
sound are automatically shifted to the set range.

When playing back a Song and a Style at the same time, the tempo value set in
the Song is automatically used.
Playing Songs with the Quick Start function
With the default settings, the Quick Start function is turned on. On some
commercially available Song data, certain settings related to the Song
(such as voice selection, volume, etc.) are recorded to the first measure,
before the actual note data. When Quick Start is set to “ON,” the instrument reads all initial non-note data of the Song at the highest possible
speed, then automatically slows down to the appropriate tempo at the first
note. This allows you to start playback as quickly as possible, with a minimum pause for reading of data. When Quick Start is set to “ON,” a Song is
played back directly from the first note (which may be in the middle of a
measure). If you want to play from the beginning of the measure that has
silence prior to the first note, turn Quick Start “OFF.”

Recording Your Performance
You can record your own performances and save them to the User tab display or a
external storage devices, such as a SmartMedia card. Several different recording
methods are available:
Quick Recording which lets you record performance conveniently and quickly,
Multi track Recording which lets you record several different parts to multiple
channels, and Step Recording which lets you enter notes one by one. You can also
edit the Songs you’ve recorded.
The microphone input signal can

The internal memory capacity of
the instrument is about 3.3MB.
This capacity applies to all file
types, including Voice, Style,
Song, and Registration data files.
Recording Methods
Step Recording
Realtime Recording
There are three methods as shown below.
Quick Recording
➤ page 138
This convenient and simple recording method lets you quickly
record your performance—useful, for example, in recording solo
piano pieces. You can record to the [TRACK 1 (R)] or [TRACK 2
(L)] button, and also to the [EXTRA TRACKS (STYLE)] track,
which can be used for recording at the same time.
Multi track Recording
➤ page 139
This lets you record a whole Song including several different
instrument parts, to create the sound of a full band or orchestra.
Record the performance of each instrument part one by one
and create fully orchestrated compositions. You can also record
over already-recorded parts of an existing Song (Preset Song or
a Song on an external device, such as SmartMedia card) with
your own performance.
Step Recording
➤ page 141
This method lets you compose your performance by “writing”
it down one event at a time. This is a non-realtime, manual
recording method – similar to writing music notation onto
paper. You can input notes, chords and other events one by
one (realtime performance is not needed).
You can also edit Songs after they’ve been recorded (page 152).
For example, you can edit specific notes one by one, or you can use the Punch In/
Out function to re-record a specific part.

Re-Recording a Specific Section—Punch In/
Out (REC MODE)
When re-recording a specific section of an already-recorded Song, use the Punch
IN/OUT function. In this method, only the data between the Punch In point and
the Punch Out point is overwritten with the newly recorded data. Keep in mind
that the notes before and after the Punch In/Out points are not recorded over,
although you will hear them play back normally to guide you in the Punch In/Out
timing. You can specify the Punch In and Punch Out points as measure numbers
beforehand for automatic operation, or manually execute the Punch In/Out recording by using a Foot Pedal or simply by playing the keyboard.
The explanations here apply to the REC MODE display in step 4 of the “Basic Editing Operation” on page 152.

Press the [I] (SAVE) button to call up the Song Selection display for
saving your data, then save the data in the Song Selection display
(page 63).
■ QUANTIZE menu
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 of correcting for this.
CHANNEL
Determines the channel in the Song to be quantized.
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 eighth note as the Quantize
size.
CAUTION
The recorded Song data will
be lost if you select another
Song or turn the power to the
instrument off without executing the Save operation
(page 63).
About Quantize size (resolution)
The Quantize size or resolution
is the number of clocks per quarter note.

Using, Creating and Editing Songs
quarter
note
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.
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.

harmony notes.
HARMONY1/2/3 PAN
Specifies the stereo (pan) position of the first (lowest), second,
and third (highest) harmony notes.

Using a Microphone
■ 3BAND EQ
EQ (Equalizer) is a processor that divides the frequency spectrum into multiple
bands, which can be boosted or cut as required to tailor the overall frequency
response. The Clavinova features a high-grade three-band (LOW, MID and HIGH)
digital equalizer function for the microphone sound.
• Hz
Adjusts the center frequency of the corresponding band.
• dB
Boosts or cuts the level of the corresponding band by up to 12 dB.
■ NOISE GATE
This effect mutes the input signal when the input from the microphone falls below
a specified level. This effectively cuts off extraneous noise, allowing the desired signal (vocal, etc.) to pass.
• SW (Switch)
This turns the Noise Gate on or off.
• TH. (Threshold)
This adjusts the input level at which the gate begins to open.

Adjusting the Microphone and Harmony Sound
■ COMPRESSOR
This effect holds down the output when the input signal from the microphone
exceeds a specified level. This is especially useful for smoothing out vocals that
have widely varying dynamics. It effectively “compresses” the signal, making soft
parts louder and loud parts softer.
• SW (Switch)
This turns the Compressor on or off.
• TH. (Threshold)
This adjusts the input level at which compression begins to be applied.
• RATIO
This adjusts the compression ratio.
• OUT
This adjusts the final output level.
■ VOCAL HARMONY CONTROL
The following parameters determine how the harmony is controlled.
Using a Microphone
• VOCODER CONTROL
The Vocal Harmony effect in Vocoder mode (page 167) is controlled by note
data—the notes you play on the keyboard and/or the notes of the song data. This
parameter lets you determine which notes are used to control the harmony.
SONG CHANNEL
MUTE/PLAY
When set to “MUTE,” the channel selected below (to control
Harmony) is muted (turned off) during song playback.
OFF/Channels 1–16
When set to “OFF,” song data control over harmony is turned
off. When set to one of the values 1–16, note data (played
from a song on the CVP or an external MIDI sequencer) contained on the corresponding channel is used to control the
harmony. This setting is linked to the HARMONY CH setting in
the SONG SETTING display (page 135).
KEYBOARD
OFF
Keyboard control over harmony is turned off.
UPPER
Notes played to the right of the split point control the harmony.
LOWER
Notes played to the left of the split point control the harmony.
• BAL.
This lets you set the balance between the lead vocal (your own voice) and Vocal
Harmony. Raising this value increases the volume of the Vocal Harmony and
decreases that of the lead vocal.
When this is set to L<H63 (L: Lead Vocal, H: Vocal Harmony), only the Vocal
Harmony is output; when it is set to L63>H, only the lead vocal is output.

Adjusting the Microphone and Harmony Sound
• MODE
All of the Vocal Harmony types fall into one of three modes, which produce harmony in different ways. The harmony effect is dependent on the selected Vocal
Harmony mode, and this parameter determines how the harmony is applied to
your voice. The three modes are described below.
AUTO
When the [ACMP ON/OFF] or [LEFT] is set to ON and if chord
data exists in the song, the mode is automatically set to
CHORDAL. In all other cases, the mode is set to VOCODER.
VOCODER
The harmony notes are determined by the notes you play on the
keyboard and/or song data. You can specify whether the Vocoder
effect is controlled by your keyboard performance or by the Song
data (page 166).
CHORDAL
The harmony notes are determined by the following three types
of chord: chords played in the chord section of the keyboard
(with the [ACMP] turned on), chords played in the LEFT Voice
section of the keyboard (with the [ACMP] turned off and the
[LEFT] turned on), and chords contained in song data for controlling the harmony. (Not available if the song does not contain any
chord data.)
• CHORD
The following parameters determine which data in a recorded song is used for
chord detection.
OFF
Chords are not detected from the song data.
XF
Chords of XF format are used for the Vocal Harmony.
1–16
Chords are detected from note data in the specified song channel.
■ MIC
The following parameters determine how the microphone sound is controlled.
• MUTE
When set to ON, the microphone sound is turned off.
Using a Microphone
• VOLUME
Adjusts the output volume of the microphone sound.

check your contract or contact
your provider.
You can connect the instrument to a full-time online connection (ADSL, optical fiber,
cable Internet, etc.) via a router or a modem equipped with a router. For specific
instructions on connecting (as well as information on compatible LAN adapters, routers, etc.), refer to the Yamaha Clavinova website:
CVP-309 grand piano type http://music.yamaha.com/CVP-309GP
CVP-309 http://music.yamaha.com/CVP-309
CVP-307 http://music.yamaha.com/CVP-307
Use a computer to connect to the Internet and get online before connecting the instrument, since no modem or router settings can be made from
the instrument itself.
To use the Internet connection, you will first need to subscribe to an Internet service or provider.

Glossary of Internet Terms
Glossary of Internet Terms
An Internet connection technology/service (such as ADSL and optical fiber) that allows for high-speed,
high-volume data communication.
Browser
The software used to search for, access, and view web pages. For this instrument, this refers to the display
that shows the contents of the web pages.
Cookie
A system that records certain information that the user transfers when visiting a website and using the Internet. The function is similar to a preference file in a conventional computer program, in that it “remembers”
certain information such as your user name and password, so you don’t have to re-enter the information
each time you visit the site.
DHCP
This is a standard or protocol by which IP addresses and other low-level network configuration information
can be dynamically and automatically assigned each time connection is made to the Internet.
DNS
A system that translates names of computers connected to a network to their corresponding IP addresses.
Download
Transferring data over a network, from a larger “host” system to a smaller “client” system’s hard drive or
other local storage device—much like copying files from your hard disk drive to a floppy disk. For this
instrument, this refers to the process of transferring Song and other data from a website to the instrument.
Gateway
A system which links different networks or systems, and makes possible data transfer and conversion
despite differing communications standards.
Home page
The first page shown when opening a browser and connecting to the Internet. This phrase is also used to
mean the “front screen” or top page of a website.
Internet
A huge network made up of networks, the Internet allows high-speed data transfer among computers,
mobile phones and other devices.
IP address
A string of numbers assigned to each computer connected to a network, and indicating the device’s location on the network.
LAN
Short for Local Area Network, this is a data-transfer network that connects a group of computers at a single
location (such as an office or home) by means of a special cable.
Link
A highlighted word, button or icon within a web page that, when clicked, opens another web page.
Modem
A device which connects and allows data transfer between a conventional telephone line and a computer. It
converts the digital signals from the computer to analog audio for sending over the phone line, and vice versa.
NTP
Short for Network Time Protocol, a standard for setting the internal system clock of the computer over a
network. For this instrument, the internal clock of the computer is used to specify the valid time/date for
cookies and SSL.
Provider
A communications business that offers Internet connection services. In order to connect to the Internet, it is
necessary to contract to a provider.
Proxy
A proxy server is a server that all computers on a local network have to go through before accessing information on the Internet. It intercepts all or designated requests to the real server to see if it can fulfill the requests
itself. If not, it forwards the request to the real server. Proxy servers are used to improve performance and
speed, and to filter requests, usually for security and to prevent unauthorized access to an internal network.
Router
A device for connecting multiple computer networks. For example, a router is necessary when connecting several
computers in a house or office, and allow them to all access the Internet and share data. A router is usually connected between a modem and a computer, although some modems have a built-in router.
Server
A hardware system or computer used as a central point for a network, providing access to files and services.
Site
Short for “website,” this refers to the group of web pages that are opened together. For example, the collection of web pages whose addresses begin with “http://www.yamaha.com/” is referred to as the Yamaha site.
SSID
This is an identification name for specifying a particular network over a wireless LAN connection. Communication is possible only between terminals with matching SSID names.
SSL
Short for Secure Sockets Layer, a standard for transmitting confidential data such as credit card numbers
over the Internet.
Subnet mask
A setting used to divide a large-scale network into several smaller networks.
URL
Short for Uniform Resource Locator, a string of characters used to identify and link to specific websites and
pages on the Internet. A complete URL usually starts with the characters “http://.”
Web page
Refers to each individual page that makes up a website.
Wireless LAN
A LAN connection that allows data transfer through a wireless, cable-free connection.

Use the built-in [MIDI] terminals and standard MIDI
cables to connect external MIDI devices.
MIDI IN
Receives MIDI messages from an external
MIDI device.
MIDI OUT
Transmits MIDI messages generated by the
instrument.
MIDI THRU
Simply relays the MIDI messages received at

For a general overview of MIDI and how you can effectively use it, refer to the following sections:
• What is MIDI?..............................................page 192
• What You Can Do With MIDI.......................page 195
• MIDI Settings ...............................................page 196
89 Connecting a Computer
or USB Device
This explanation is divided into two parts, covering the
two connections: connection to the [USB TO HOST]
terminal and connection to the [MIDI] terminal.
• Connecting to the [USB TO HOST] terminal
When connecting the instrument to the computer via
USB, use a standard USB cable (having the USB logo)
to connect the [USB TO HOST] terminal on the
instrument to the USB terminal of the computer. Then,
install the USB MIDI driver.
Instrument

n
About the [USB TO HOST] and [USB TO DEVICE] terminals
There are two different types of USB terminals on the instrument:
[USB TO HOST] and [USB TO DEVICE]. Take care not to confuse
the two terminals and the corresponding cable connectors.
Be careful to connect the proper plug in the proper direction.
Explanations on the [USB TO DEVICE] terminal follow in the next
section.
CAUTION
8 Connecting a Computer ([USB TO
HOST] and [MIDI] Terminals)
By connecting a computer to the [USB TO HOST] or
[MIDI] terminals, you can transfer data between the
instrument and the computer via MIDI, and take advantage of sophisticated computer music programs. Keep in
mind that you also need to install an appropriate USB
MIDI driver.
The instructions below explain how to connect and use
the terminals.
n
If you are using a computer that has a USB interface, we recommend that you connect the computer and the instrument by USB,
rather than by MIDI.
n
Driver
A driver is software that provides a data-transfer interface between
the computer’s operating system and a connected hardware
device. You need to install a USB MIDI driver to connect the computer and the instrument.
Precautions when using the [USB TO HOST] terminal
When connecting the computer to the [USB TO HOST] terminal, make sure to observe the following points. Failing to do so
risks freezing the computer and corrupting or losing data. If the
computer or the instrument freezes, turn the power to the
instrument off and restart the computer.
• Before connecting the computer to the [USB TO HOST] terminal, exit from any power-saving mode of the computer
(such as suspended, sleep, standby), and quit any open application software, also turns off the power to the instrument.
• Execute the following before turning the power to the instrument off or unplugging the USB cable to/from the instrument/
computer.
- Quit any open application software on the computer.
- Make sure that data is not being transmitted from the
instrument. (Data is transmitted only by playing notes on
the keyboard or playing back a song.)
• While a USB device is connected to the instrument, you
should wait for six seconds or more between these
operations: When turning the power of the instrument
off then on again, or when alternately connecting/disconnecting the USB cable.
n
CVP-309/307 Owner’s Manual
Using Your Instrument with Other Devices
• The instrument will begin transmission a short time after the

Connecting a Computer or USB Device/What is MIDI
Copying files from a computer hard disk to a
USB storage device
Files contained on the hard disk of a computer can be
transferred to the instrument by first copying them to the
storage media, then connecting/inserting the media to the
instrument.
Not only files created on the instrument itself but also
Standard MIDI files and Style File-formatted Style files created on other devices can be copied to SmartMedia card
or a USB storage device from the hard disk of the computer. Once you’ve copied the data, insert the card into
the Card slot or connect the device to the [USB TO
DEVICE] terminal of the instrument, and play back the
data on the instrument.
What is MIDI?
Put simply, MIDI is a data transfer standard that allows
easy and comprehensive control among electronic/digital music instruments and other devices. To get a better
idea of what MIDI does, let’s first consider acoustic
instruments, such as a grand piano and a classical guitar. 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?

Pluck a string and the
body resonates the
sound.
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.
Now, let’s examine what happens when we playback a
recording. When you play back a music CD (for example, a solo piano recording), you’re hearing the actual
sound (vibration in air) of the acoustic instrument. This
is called audio data, to distinguish it from MIDI data.
Recording and playing back the performance of an
acoustic instrument (audio data)
Recording
Playback
Using Your Instrument with Other Devices
In the above example, the actual acoustic sounds of the
pianist’s performance are captured in the recording as
audio data, and this is recorded to CD. When you play
back that CD on your audio system, you can hear the
actual piano performance. The piano itself is not necessary, since the recording contains the actual sounds of
the piano, and your speakers reproduce them.

Finally, we’ll take a look at the actual data that gets
recorded and that serves as the basis for playing the
sounds. For example, let’s say you play a “C” quarter
note using the grand piano sound on the Clavinova keyboard. 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 generator. Using these numbers as a basis
for sound generation, the tone generator plays the
stored sampled note.
Example Keyboard Data
n
In the case of digital instruments, the audio signals are sent
through output jacks (such as [AUX OUT]) on the instrument.
Voice number (with what voice)
01 (grand piano)
Note number (with which key)
60 (C3)
The “controller” and “tone generator” in the illustration
above are equivalent to the piano in our acoustic example. Here, the player’s performance on the keyboard is
captured as MIDI song data (see illustration below). In
order to record the audio performance on an acoustic
piano, special recording equipment is needed. However, since the Clavinova features a built-in sequencer
that lets you record performance data, this recording
equipment is unnecessary. Instead, your digital instrument—the Clavinova—allows you to both record and
play back the data.

Keyboard performance (MIDI data)
n
Even though it is a single musical instrument, the Clavinova can
be thought of as containing several electronic components: a controller, a tone generator, and a sequencer.
MIDI is an acronym that stands for Musical Instrument
Digital Interface, which allows electronic musical
instruments to communicate with each other, by sending and receiving compatible Note, Control Change,
Program Change and various other types of MIDI data,
or messages.
The Clavinova can control a MIDI device by transmitting note related data and various types of controller
data. The Clavinova can be controlled by incoming
MIDI messages which automatically determine the tone
generator mode, select MIDI channels, voices and
effects, change parameter values and of course play the
voices specified for the various parts.
n
MIDI data has the following advantages over audio data:
• The amount of data is much less.
• The data can be effectively and easily edited, even to the point
of changing voices and transforming the data.
MIDI messages can be divided into two groups: Channel messages and System messages.
Using Your Instrument with Other Devices
However, we also need a sound source to produce the
audio, which eventually comes from your speakers. The
tone generator of the Clavinova fills this function. The
recorded performance is reproduced by the sequencer,
playing back the song data, using a tone generator
capable of accurately producing various instrument
sounds—including that of a piano. Looked at in another
way, the relation of the sequencer and the tone generator is similar to that of the pianist and the piano—one
plays the other. Since digital instruments handle playback data and the actual sounds independently, we can
hear our piano performance played by another instrument, such as guitar or violin.
Panel operations on the Clavinova, such as playing the
keyboard and selecting voices, are processed and
stored as MIDI data. The auto accompaniment Styles
and Songs also consist of MIDI data.
Channel Messages
The Clavinova is an electronic instrument that can handle 16 MIDI channels (or reception of 32 channels for
MIDI data reception when using the [USB] terminal).
This is usually expressed as “it can play 16 instruments
at the same time.” Channel messages transmit information such as Note ON/OFF, Program Change, for each
of the 16 channels.

simultaneously sent over one MIDI cable.
Think of the MIDI channels as TV channels. Each TV
station transmits its broadcasts over a specific channel.
Your home TV set receives many different programs
simultaneously from several TV stations and you select
the appropriate channel to watch the desired program.

MIDI operates on the same basic principle. The transmitting instrument sends MIDI data on a specific MIDI
channel (MIDI Transmit Channel) via a single MIDI
cable to the receiving instrument. If the receiving instrument’s MIDI channel (MIDI Receive Channel) matches
the Transmit Channel, the receiving instrument will
sound according to the data sent by the transmitting
instrument.

MIDI Data Compatibility
This section covers basic information on data compatibility: whether or not other MIDI devices can playback
the data recorded by CVP-309/307, and whether or not
the CVP-309/307 can playback commercially available
song data or song data created for other instruments or
on a computer. Depending on the MIDI device or data
characteristics, you may be able to play back the data
without any problem, or you may have to perform some
special operations before the data can be played back.
If you run into problems playing back data, please refer
to the information below.
Sequence Formats
Song data is recorded and stored in a variety of different
systems, referred to as “sequence formats.”
Playback is only possible when the sequence format of
the Song data matches that of the MIDI device. The
CVP-309/307 is compatible with the following formats.
● ESEQ
This sequence format is compatible with many of
Yamaha’s MIDI devices, including the Clavinova series
instruments. This is a common format used with various
Yamaha software.
• The CVP-309/307 is compatible with ESEQ.
● Style File
The Style File Format combines all of Yamaha’s auto
accompaniment know-how into a single unified format.
Voice Allocation Format
With MIDI, Voices are assigned to specific numbers,
called “program numbers.” The numbering standard
(order of voice allocation) is referred to as the “voice
allocation format.”
Voices may not play back as expected unless the voice
allocation format of the song data matches that of the
compatible MIDI device used for playback. The CVP309/307 is compatible with the following formats.
n
Even if the devices and data used satisfy all the conditions above,
the data may still not be completely compatible, depending on the
specifications of the devices and particular data recording methods.
● GM System Level 1
This is one of the most common voice allocation formats.
Many MIDI devices are compatible with GM System
Level 1, as is most commercially available software.
● GM System Level 2
“GM System Level 2” is a standard specification that
enhances the original “GM System Level 1” and
improves Song data compatibility. It provides for
increased polyphony, greater voice selection, expanded
voice parameters, and integrated effect processing.
● XG
XG is a major enhancement of the GM System Level 1
format, and was developed by Yamaha specifically to
provide more Voices and variations, as well as greater
expressive control over Voices and effects, and to
ensure compatibility of data well into the future.
Song data recorded on the CVP-309/307 using Voices
in the XG category is XG-compatible.
Using Your Instrument with Other Devices
● SMF (Standard MIDI file)
This is the most common sequence format. Standard
MIDI Files are generally available as one of two types:
Format 0 or Format 1. Many MIDI devices are compatible with Format 0, and most commercially available
software is recorded as Format 0.
• The CVP-309/307 is compatible with both Format 0
and Format 1.
• Song data recorded on the CVP-309/307 is automatically saved as SMF Format 0.
● XF
The Yamaha XF format enhances the SMF (Standard
MIDI File) standard with greater functionality and openended expandability for the future. The Clavinova is
capable of displaying lyrics when an XF file containing
lyric data is played. (SMF is the most common format
used for MIDI sequence files. The Clavinova is compatible with SMF Formats 0 and 1, and records “song” data
using SMF Format 0.)
● DOC (Disk Orchestra Collection)
This voice allocation format is compatible with many of
Yamaha’s MIDI devices, including the Clavinova series
instruments.
● GS
GS was developed by the Roland Corporation.
In the same way as Yamaha XG, GS is a major enhancement of the GM specifically to provide more Voices and
Drum kits and their variations, as well as greater expressive control over Voices and effects.

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

used as a 32-channel multi-timbral tone generator by
using these five parts in addition to the general parts
(except for the microphone sound).
● Rx MONITOR
The dots corresponding to each channel (1–16) flash
briefly whenever any data is received on the channel(s).

The explanations here apply to the BASS display to be
called up in step 4 of the “Basic Operation” on
page 196.
These settings let you determine the bass note for Style
playback, based on the note messages received via
MIDI. The note on/off messages received at the channel(s) set to “ON” are recognized as the bass note of the
chord of Style playback. The bass note will be detected
regardless of the [ACMP ON/OFF] or split point settings. When several channels are simultaneously set to
“ON,” the bass note is detected from merged MIDI data
received over the channels.

Setting the Chord Type for Style Playback via MIDI Receive
Using Your Instrument with Other Devices
The explanations here apply to the CHORD DETECT
display to be called up in step 4 of the “Basic Operation” on page 196.
These settings let you determine the chord type for Style
playback, based on the note messages received via
MIDI. The note on/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 type
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.
The operation procedure is basically the same as that of
the BASS display above.

change numbers are not shown).
CVP-309_E.book Page 201 Monday, October 23, 2006 9:07 AM
Troubleshooting
Overall
The Clavinova does not turn on.
• Securely insert the female plug into the socket on the
Clavinova, and the male plug into a proper AC outlet.
A click or pop is heard when the power is turned on
or off.
• Electrical current is being applied to the instrument. This
is normal.
Noise is heard from the Clavinova’s speakers.
• Noise may be heard if a mobile phone is used near the
Clavinova or if the phone is ringing. Turn off the mobile
phone, or use it further away from the Clavinova.
The letters in the display cannot be read, because the
display is too bright (or dark).
• Use the [LCD CONTRAST] knob to adjust for optimum
visibility.
• Adjust the brightness of the display (page 19).
The overall volume is too low, or, no sound is heard.
• The master volume may be set too low. Set it to an
appropriate level with the [MASTER VOLUME] dial.
• All keyboard parts are set to off. Use the PART ON/OFF
[RIGHT 1]/[RIGHT 2]/[LEFT] button to turn it on.
• The volume of the individual parts may be set too low.
Raise the volume in the BALANCE display (page 39).
• Make sure the desired channel is set to ON (page 103).
• Headphones are connected, disabling the speaker output. (This happens when the speaker setting is set to
“HEADPHONE SW”; page 17.) Unplug the headphones.
• Make sure the speaker setting is set to ON (page 17).
• The [FADE IN/OUT] button is on, muting the sound.
Press the [FADE IN/OUT] button to turn the function off.
• Make sure the Local Control function is set to ON
(page 198).
Not all simultaneously played notes sound.
• You are probably exceeding the maximum polyphony
(page 213) of the CVP. When the maximum polyphony
is exceeded, the earliest played notes will stop sounding,
letting the latest played notes sound.
The keyboard volume is lower than the Song/Style
playback volume.
• The volume of the keyboard parts may be set too low.
Raise the volume in the BALANCE display (page 39).
Keys do not sound at the proper pitch.
• Make sure the [PERFORMANCE ASSISTANT] button is
set to OFF.
- Some Voices have a looping sound.
- Some noise or vibrato is noticeable at higher
pitches, depending upon the voice.
• This is normal and is a result of the Clavinova’s sampling
system.
Some Voices will jump an octave in pitch when played
in the upper or lower registers.
• This is normal. Some voices have a pitch limit which,
when reached, causes this type of pitch shift.
The Main display does not appear even when turning
the power on.
• This may occur if a USB storage device has been
installed to the instrument. Installation of some USB storage device may result a long interval between turning
the power on and appearance of the Main display. To
avoid this, turn the power on after disconnecting the
device.
The main background image from the CD-ROM is not
displayed.
• This is because the Main display is loaded prior to loading of the image from the CD-ROM. To remedy this,
copy the image data from the CD-ROM to the User display, then set it as the main background image (page 19).
Pedals
The damper, sostenuto and soft functions do not
work for the relevant pedals.
• The pedal cord plug is not connected. Securely insert the
pedal cord plug into the proper jack (page 210).
• Each pedal has been assigned to a different function.
Make sure that each pedal is properly assigned to SUSTAIN, SOSTENUTO, and SOFT (page 186).
• Make sure the Registration Sequence function is set to
OFF (page 129).
Files/Folders
Some characters of the file/folder name are garbled.
• The language settings have been changed. Set the appropriate language for the file/folder name (page 18).
An existing file is not shown.
• The file extension (.MID, etc.) may have been changed
or deleted. Manually rename the file, adding the appropriate extension, on a computer.
The data contained in the external media (SmartMedia card, etc.) is not shown on the instrument itself.
• Data files with names of more than 42 characters cannot
be handled by the instrument. Rename the file, reducing
the number of characters to 41 or less.
CVP-309/307 Owner’s Manual
Appendix
Certain notes sound at the wrong pitch.
The Scale parameter has probably been set to something other than “Equal,” changing the tuning system of
the keyboard. Make sure “Equal” is selected as the
Scale in the Scale Tune display (page 78).
- There is a slight difference in sound quality among
different notes played on the keyboard.
201
CVP-309_E.book Page 202 Monday, October 23, 2006 9:07 AM
The file/folder copied or cut from one media (such as
a SmartMedia card, etc.) cannot be directly copied or
pasted to another media.
• This is normal. Since directly copying data is not possible, copy or paste the data once to the User display, then
copy or paste it again to the Card/USB display after
changing the media.
Demo
How can I stop the demo?
• Press the [EXIT] button.
Help
How can I leave the Help feature?
• Press the [EXIT] button.
Voice
The Voice selected from the Voice Selection display
does not sound.
• Check whether or not the selected part is turned on
(page 73).
• To select the Voice for the right-hand key range, press the
PART SELECT [RIGHT 1] button. For the Voice to be layered in the right-hand range, press the PART SELECT
[RIGHT 2] button. To select the Voice for the left-hand
key range, press the PART SELECT [LEFT] button.
A strange “flanging” or “doubling” sound occurs. The
sound is slightly different each time the keys are
played.
• The RIGHT 1 and RIGHT 2 parts are set to “ON,” and
both parts are set to play the same Voice. Turn off the
RIGHT 2 part or change the Voice of one of the parts.
The sound seems strange or different than expected
when changing a rhythm Voice (drum kit, etc.) of the
Style or Song from the Mixer.
• When changing the rhythm/percussion Voices (drum
kits, etc.) of the Style and Song from the VOICE parameter, the detailed settings related to the drum voice are
reset, and in some cases you may be unable to restore
the original sound. In the case of Song playback, you
can restore the original sound by returning to the beginning of the Song and playing back from that point. In the
case of Style play, you can restore the original sound by
selecting the same Style again.
Appendix
Tremolo/Trill cannot be applied to the Organ Flute
Voice.
• This is normal; Tremolo and Trill settings in the Harmony/Echo display are not effective for Organ Flute
Voices.
202
CVP-309/307 Owner’s Manual
The Harmony function does not operate.
• Harmony cannot be used with the Full Keyboard or AI
Full Keyboard fingering modes. Select an appropriate
fingering mode (page 101).
When a Voice is changed, the previously selected
effect is changed.
• Each Voice has its own suitable preset settings, which are
automatically recalled when the corresponding Voice
Set parameters are turned on (page 100).
The Voice produces excessive noise.
• Certain Voices may produce noise, depending on the
Harmonic Content and/or Brightness settings in the FILTER page of the Mixing Console display (page 84).
The sound is distorted or noisy.
• The volume may be turned up too high. Make sure all
relevant volume settings are appropriate.
• This may be caused by certain effects. Try canceling all
unnecessary effects, especially distortion-type effects
(page 86).
• Some filter resonance settings in the Sound Creator display (page 95) can result in distorted sound. Adjust these
settings if necessary.
• Noise may occur depending on the settings made in the
Filter display of the Mixing Console. Adjust the Harmonic Content or Brightness controls in the Filter display
(page 84).
The sound does not change when replacing Voices
with the Song Auto Revoice feature.
• Depending on the particular Song data, there are some
instances where Song Auto Revoice has no effect, even
when replacing Voices.
The sound of the Voice doesn’t change, even when
editing the Voice.
• Keep in mind that adjustments made to the parameters
may not make much change in the actual sound depending on the original settings of the Voice.
Voices other than those in the Preset display cannot
be selected for Step recording.
• This is normal.
iAFC
Calibration is aborted.
• (CVP-309 grand piano type)
If you close the lid completely or to the shorter stay
while performing the calibration, the calibration will be
aborted. Perform the calibration once again after opening the lid with the longer stay.
• The speaker is turned off. Perform the calibration once
again after turning the speaker on (page 17).
• If any low-range noise (such as an air conditioner or traffic) is audible around the Clavinova during the calibration, the calibration may abort and the settings may be
reset to their default values. Perform the calibration once
again after eliminating the noise.

Style
Style playback does not start.
• Make sure to press the STYLE CONTROL [START/STOP]
button.
• MIDI Clock may be set to “EXTERNAL.” Make sure this is
set to “INTERNAL” (page 198).
Only the rhythm channel plays.
• Make sure the Auto Accompaniment function is turned
on; press the [ACMP ON/OFF] button.
• You may be playing keys in the right hand range of the
keyboard. Make sure to play keys in the chord range of
the keyboard.
Styles cannot be selected.
• If the size of the Style data is large (120 KB or greater),
the Style cannot be selected because the data is too large
to be ready by the instrument.
The desired chord is not recognized or output by the
auto accompaniment.
• You may not be playing the correct keys for indicating
the chord. Refer to “Chord Types Recognized in the Fingered Mode” of the separate Data List.
• You may be playing the keys according to a different fingering mode, and not the one currently selected. Check
the accompaniment mode, and play the keys according
to the selected mode (page 102).
Synchro Stop cannot be turned on.
• Synchro Stop cannot be turned on when the fingering
mode is set to “Full Keyboard” or “AI Full Keyboard,” or
when Style On/Off is set to off. Make sure the fingering
mode is set to something besides “Full Keyboard” or “Al
Full Keyboard” and set Style On/Off to on.
Auto accompaniment chords are recognized regardless of the split point or where chords are played on
the keyboard.
• This is normal if the fingering mode is set to “Full Keyboard” or “AI Full Keyboard.” If either of these is
selected, chords are recognized over the entire range of
the keyboard, irrespective of the split point setting. If
desired, select a different fingering mode (page 102).
When playing back one Style and selecting another,
the newly selected Style doesn’t play at the proper
Tempo.
• This is normal; the Tempo setting remains constant when
changing Styles.
The “Off” setting is not shown for the Play Type
parameter in the Assembly (Style Creator) feature.
• The selected section is set to record enable. Release the
recording assignment by pressing the appropriate [1†]–
[8†] button in the recording channel display (TAB [√]
button → BASIC tab → [F] REC CH).
The channels BASS-PHR2 cannot be edited in Channel

• This is normal; BASS-PHR2 channels of the Preset Styles
cannot be edited.
Registration memory
The Song/Style registered to the Registration Memory cannot be called up.
• If the registered Song/Style is contained on external
media such as SmartMedia card and the media is not
inserted or connected to the instrument, the Song/Style
cannot be called up. Insert or connect the appropriate
media containing the Song/Style data.
The order for calling up Registration Memory settings
is not shown on the Registration Sequence setting
display.
• The bank containing the Registration has not been
selected. Select the appropriate bank (page 126).
When using the Freeze function of the Registration
Memory, the On/Off setting of the Left Part does not
change even when changing the Registration Memory setting.
• The Left Part On/Off setting is included in the Style
group. Remove the checkmark from “STYLE” in the
Freeze setting display (page 127).
Even though a Registration Memory setting containing a User/Card voice is selected, the File Selection
display shows a Preset Voice.
• This is normal; even with the Preset Voice shown, the
actual sounding Voice is the selected User/Card Voice.
When a User/Card Voice is saved to the User/Card drive,
the actual data is divided into two separate types: 1) the
source Preset Voice itself, and 2) the parameter settings
as set in the Sound Creator. When you recall a Registration Memory setting containing a User/Card Voice, the
Clavinova selects the Preset voice (on which the User/
Card Voice is based), then applies the relevant parameter
settings to it—so that your original User/Card Voice is
sounded.

OWNER’S MANUAL
IMPORTANT —Check your power supply—
Clavinova Web site
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. The voltage selector is set at 240V when the unit is initially shipped. To change
the setting use a "minus" screwdriver to rotate the selector dial so that the correct voltage appears next to the pointer on the panel.
