practice by playing along.
The lesson function lets you select one of three different arrangement levels to suit your abilities and need. Simply select the part
you want to practice, and then follow along on the keyboard as keys light. First master the timing. Next, play along at your own
pace. Finally, you can try playing along with the accompaniment at normal speed.
J Big display with a wealth of musical information (page E-12)
A big, information-packed display shows you which fingers to use, which keys to press, staff notation of the notes being played,
and much more.
J Sequencer (page E-53)
A 17-track sequencer provides a System Track for recording of the auto accompaniment plus 16 tracks, each of which can be used
to record with a different tone.
J 100 rhythms (page E-23)
100 preset rhythms including rock, pops, jazz, and much more are at your fingertips.
J Auto Accompaniment (page E-23)

means you can use the piano as a desktop music input device or sound source.
J Mixer (page E-46)
You can specify tone, volume, pan position, and other parameters for each built-in auto accompaniment part and each track
recorded with the sequencer. You can also control the same parameters for each channel during MIDI input.

Connecting to a Power Outlet
Power On Alert
Keyboard keys light to alert you if you leave power on and do
not perform any operation for about 6 minutes. Note that keys
light only, and no sound is produced. When this happens,
press any button or keyboard key to clear the power on alert.
To disable power on alert
See “Keyboard Settings” on page E-71 for information about
disabling power on alert.
Š When this function is turned off, the piano does not turn
off automatically and no alert is performed no matter
how long it is left with no operation being performed.
Power Requirements
The piano comes with a built-in lithium battery that supplies
power to the memory to retain sequencer and other data
while piano power is turned off. If the power of the lithium
battery is low, turning off piano power can result in deletion
of all data stored in its memory.
The normal life of the original battery is five years from the
time it is loaded at the factory. Due to time spent in transit and
storage, the original battery probably will not provide a full
five years of service life. It is up to you to contact your nearest
CASIO service provider about having the lithium battery
replaced periodically.
Note that you will be charged separately for lithium battery
replacement.
Initializing the Piano
Settings and Memory Contents
The following describes what happens to settings and
memory contents when power is turned off.
Use the procedure on page E-81 to initialize the digital piano,
which clears all memory data and returns settings to their
initial factory defaults.
Settings
When you turn off the piano by pressing the POWER button,
it “remembers” the current settings of certain parameters.
These settings remain in effect the next time you turn on the
piano.
For information on which parameters the piano remembers,
see the “Power Off Backup Items” of the “Parameter List” at
the back of this manual (page A-17).
Memory Contents
In addition to the settings described above, the digital piano
also retains registration memory and sequencer contents
when power is turned off.

Connections
Connecting to an audio or musical instrument amplifier provides even clearer, more powerful sound through external speakers.
Connecting to Audio Equipment 3
Š Whenever connecting external equipment, first set the
MAIN VOLUME knob of the digital piano and the volume
controller of the external equipment to relatively low
volume settings. You can later adjust volume to the level
you want after connections are complete.
Š Be sure also to refer to the documentation that comes with
the external equipment for its proper connection
procedures.
Use commercially available cables to connect the external
audio equipment to the digital piano’s LINE OUT jacks as
shown in Figure 3. R jack output is right channel sound,
while L/MONO jack output is left channel sound. It is up to
you to purchase connecting cables like the ones shown in the
illustration for connection of audio equipment. Normally in
this configuration you must set the audio equipment’s input
selector to the setting that specifies the terminal (such as AUX
IN) to which the digital piano is connected. Use the digital
piano’s MAIN VOLUME knob to adjust the volume level.
Connecting Headphones 1
Connect commercially available headphones to the digital
piano’s headphones jack. This cuts off the built-in speakers,
which means you can practice even late at night without
disturbing others. To protect your hearing, make sure that
you do not set the volume level too high when using
headphones.
Connecting to a PEDAL Jack 2
Depending on the type of operation you want the pedal (SP20) to perform, connect the pedal’s cable to the digital piano’s
DAMPER jack or SOFT/SOSTENUTO jack. If you want to use
both jacks at the same time, you need to purchase another
optionally available SP-20 pedal.
See “Using the Pedals” on page E-21 for information about
using a pedal.
E-16
Connecting to a Musical Instrument
Amplifier 4
Use commercially available cables to connect the amplifier to
the digital piano’s LINE OUT jacks as shown in Figure 4. R
jack output is right channel sound, while L/MONO jack
output is left channel sound. Connecting to the L/MONO jack
only outputs a mixture of both channels. It is up to you to
purchase connecting cable like the one shown in the
illustration for connection of the amplifier. Use the digital
piano’s MAIN VOLUME knob to adjust the volume level.
Accessories and Options
Use only the accessories and options specified for this digital
piano. Use of non-authorized items creates the danger of fire,
electric shock, and personal injury.

Basic Operations
Polyphony
The term polyphony refers to the maximum number of notes
you can play at the same time. This piano has 64-note
polyphony, which includes the notes you play as well as the
rhythms and auto-accompaniment patterns that are played
by the piano. This means that when a rhythm or autoaccompaniment pattern is being played by the piano, the
number of notes (polyphony) available for keyboard play is
reduced. Also note that some of the tones provide only 32note polyphony.
Digital Sampling
A number of the tones that are available with this piano have
been recorded and processed using a technique called digital
sampling. To ensure a high level of tonal quality, samples are
taken in the low, mid, and high ranges and then combined to
provide you with sounds that are amazingly close to the
originals. You may notice very slight differences in volume or
sound quality for some tones when you play them at different
positions on the keyboard. This is an unavoidable result of
multiple sampling, and it is not a sign of malfunction.
Upper1, Upper2, Lower1,
Lower2
This piano lets you use up to four parts simultaneously for
your performances. The parts are named Upper1, Upper2,
Lower1, and Lower2, and the display shows the tone
currently assigned to each.
You can use the PART/(MIXER) button to display the tones
that are assigned for each part (Upper1, Upper2, Lower1,
Lower2). Each press of PART/(MIXER) button cycles through
the parts in the sequence shown below. While a part is
displayed, you can change the tone assigned to it (page E-18).
Š Upper1
Using Layer
With layer you can assign two different tones (a main tone
and a layered tone) to the keyboard, both of which play
whenever you press a key.
To layer two tones
1.
2.
Select the main tone.
Press the LAYER/(GROUP A/B) button to turn
on tone layering.
Š This causes the indicator lamp of the button to
light.
Š The currently layered tone name appears on the
display. You can use the TONE buttons to change
the layered tone if you want.
3.
4.
Select the layered tone.
Now try playing something on the keyboard.
Š Both tones are played at the same time.
5.
Press the LAYER/(GROUP A/B) button again to
unlayer the tones and return the keyboard to
normal.
Š This causes the indicator lamp of the button to go
out.
Š Layering is disabled during demo tune play and in the
Music Library Mode (while Music Library Mode lamp is lit).
Š Layering is achieved by sounding Upper1 and Upper2 of
mixer Group A. This means you can use the mixer to
change the volume balance and stereo pan position
parameters for both the main tone and layered tone. See
“Using the Mixer” on page E-46 for details.

Using Split
With split you can assign two different tones (a main tone and
a split tone) to either end of the keyboard, which lets you play
one tone with your left hand and another tone with your right
hand.
To change the location of the split point
While holding down the SPLIT button, press the keyboard
key where you want the lowest note (the leftmost key) of the
upper range (right side range) to be.
Š No sound is produced when the keys are pressed.
Using Layer and Split Together
You can use layer and split together to create a layered/split
keyboard. When you use layer and split in combination, the
high range of the keyboard is assigned two tones (main tone
+ layered tone), and the low range two tones (split tone +
layered/split tone).
To split the keyboard

procedure under “Changing the Parameters of a
Part” on page E-47. The main tone is Upper1, the
layered tone is Upper2, the split tone is Lower1,
and the layered/split tone is Lower2.
Š The lower range (left side) of the keyboard is
assigned the split tone, while the upper range
(right side) is assigned the main tone.
Š The location on the keyboard where the
changeover between the two tones occurs is
called the split point. See “To change the location
of the split point” on this page for details on
changing the location of the split point.

Pedal functions
Š Layer/split is produced by using mixer Group A Upper1,
Upper2, Lower1, and Lower2 at the same time. This means
you can use the mixer to change the volume balance and
stereo pan position parameters for each of the tones. See
“Using the Mixer” on page E-46 for details.
Š You can use the mixer to turn off individual channels (layer/
split tones). This means you could turn off Lower2, for
example, to sound a single tone in the lower range and two
layered tones in the upper range. See page E-46 for
details.
Turning the Key Light System
On and Off
Š Damper pedal
Pressing this pedal causes notes to reverberate and to
sustain longer.
Š Soft pedal
Pressing this pedal dampens notes and slightly reduces
their volume. Only notes played after the pedal is
depressed are affected, and any notes played before the
pedal is pressed sound at their normal volume.
Š Sostenuto pedal
Like the damper pedal, this pedal causes notes to
reverberate and to sustain longer. The difference
between the two pedals is the timing when they are
pressed. With the sostenuto pedal, you press the pedal
after depressing the notes you want to sustain. Only
the notes whose keyboard keys are depressed when the
sostenuto pedal is pressed are affected.
Use the following procedure when you want to turn the key
light system on or off.
1.
While holding down the FUNCTION button,
press the ONE TOUCH PRESET/(KEY LIGHT)
button to toggle the key light system on and off.
Š During memory playback and demo tune play, pedal
effects are applied to notes played on the keyboard only.
Š The pointer next to KEY LIGHT appears when
the key lighting system is turned on, and
disappears when it is turned off.
Using the Pedals
The digital piano is equipped with two pedal jacks, one for a
damper pedal and one for a soft/sostenuto pedal. Use the
“Assign Left” setting described under “Setting: Pedal” on
page E-77 to assign the function you want to the SOFT/
SOSTENUTO jack. The power on default setting of the SOFT/
SOSTENUTO jack is SOFT.

Chord”, “6th Chord”, and “Tension Chord” Accomp
settings. See “Keyboard Settings” on page E-71 for
information about Accomp settings. Information about
how settings affect the type of chords recognized by the
keyboard can be found “Fingered/Full Range Chord
Table” at the back of this manual (page A-12).
Š In the FINGERED Mode, you can use standard fingering
(C-E-G for a C-chord, for example) or you can use inverted
fingerings (G-E-C, for example), as long as you play chords

Auto Accompaniment
Using Synchro Start/Stop while Auto
Acompaniment is Playing
Synchro stop is the opposite of synchro start. It causes the
currently playing auto accompaniment pattern to stop when
the keys in the accompaniment keyboard range are released.
This feature is more than just a simple way to stop auto
accompaniment play. It plays auto accompaniment only
when valid chords are played inside the accompaniment
keyboard range.
Š The following procedures do not work in the normal Mode,
when all lamps above the MODE button are turned off.
J Auto Accompaniment in Synchro Stop
The following are the auto accompaniment operations you
can perform while the keyboard is in synchro stop (both
lamps above the SYNCHRO START/STOP button lit).
Š Playing a chord in the accompaniment keyboard range
causes auto accompaniment to play (only while the chord
note keys are depressed). Releasing the keys causes auto
accompaniment play to stop, and the keyboard enters
synchro stop again.
Š Pressing the SYNCHRO START/STOP button while
playing a chord in the accompaniment keyboard range
causes the lamps above the button to go out, indicating
that the keyboard is no longer in synchro stop.
With synchro stop, you can easily create a break in auto
accompaniment play to allow for ad libbing, and then restart
accompaniment when you want.
J Using Synchro Stop to stop Auto Accompaniment
Š Select a rhythm and adjust its tempo.
Š Use the MODE button to specify the chord fingering mode
you want to use.
1.
2.
Press the START/STOP button to start play of
the selected rhythm.
Press the SYNCHRO START/STOP button.
Š This causes the right lamp above the button to
light, indicating that the keyboard is in synchro
stop standby.
3.
Play a chord in the accompaniment keyboard
range and then release the keys.
Š This causes the auto accompaniment pattern to
stop playing and both lamps above the
SYNCHRO START/STOP button to light,
indicating that the keyboard is in synchro stop.
Š To exit synchro stop, press the SYNCHRO
START/STOP button twice so the two lamps go
out.
Š The section below describes what auto
accompaniment operations you can perform
while the keyboard is in synchro stop.

Finishing with an Ending
Pattern
You can end your performances with an ending pattern that
brings the rhythm you are using to a natural-sounding
conclusion.
To finish with an ending pattern
1.
While the rhythm is playing, press the ENDING
button.
Š This causes the ending pattern to play, which
brings rhythm accompaniment to an end.
Š The timing when the ending pattern starts depends on
when you press the ENDING button. If you press the button
before the second beat of the current measure, the ending
pattern starts playing immediately. Pressing the button at
any point in the measure after the second beat results in
the ending pattern playing from the beginning of the
following measure.

About Auto Harmonize notes and tones
The notes you play on the keyboard are called “melody
notes”, while the notes added to the melody by auto
harmonize are called the “harmonize notes”. Auto harmonize
normally uses the tone you selected for the melody notes as
the tone for the harmonize notes, but you can use the mixer
(page E-46) to specify a different tone for the harmonize notes.
Harmonize tones correspond to mixer auto harmonize 1 and
2. This means you can specify the harmonize tones by
changing the tones assigned to auto harmonize 1 and 2.
In addition to the tone, you can also use the mixer to change
a number of other parameters, such as volume balance. See
“Changing the Parameters of a Part” on page E-47 for details
on these procedures.
Š The default harmonize note tone when you first turn on
auto harmonize is the same tone as the melody note tone.
Š Changing the melody tone setting automatically changes
the harmonize note tone to the same setting.
