420A-E-017A
This digital piano can play up to 32 notes at the same time.
Also note that some of the tones offer only 16-note polyphony
(GRAND PIANO 1, ELEC PIANO 2, RIDE ACO BASS).
Touch Response
The touch response feature of this digital piano causes the
volume of the tones and the sound of the tones themselves to
change slightly in accordance with how much pressure you
apply to the keyboard, just like with an acoustic piano. Touch
response affects the HARPSICHORD tone only slightly,
because the original musical instrument normally produces
the same sound, no matter how much pressure is applied.
Digitally Sampled Tones
The tones of this digital piano are produced using digitally
recorded samples of actual musical instruments. Not all of
the instruments, however, can produce tones across the entire
range played by this digital piano (A0 through C8). In such a
case, digital recordings are used for the range that actually
can be produced by the original instrument, and synthesized
tones are used for notes that cannot be produced naturally.
Because of this, you may notice very slight differences
between natural notes and synthesized notes in sound quality
and in results produced when using effects. These differences
are normal and do not indicate malfunction.
E-13
Basic Operation
Using the Pedals
Using the Metronome
The digital piano is equipped with the two pedals shown in
the illustration below. The left pedal normally functions as a
soft pedal.
The metronome provides a reference beat that you can use
during your performances or practice sessions. You can
change the beat and the tempo of the metronome.

Pressing this pedal dampens notes and slightly reduces
their volume. Only notes played after the pedal is depressed
are affected, and any notes played before the pedal is
pressed sound at their normal volume.
• Sostenuto pedal
Like the damper pedal, this pedal causes notes to
reverberate and to sustain longer. The difference between
the two pedals is the timing when they are pressed. With
the sostenuto pedal, you press the pedal after depressing
the notes you want to sustain. Only the notes whose
keyboard keys are depressed when the sostenuto pedal is
pressed are affected.
To assign the sostenuto to the left
pedal
While holding down the left pedal, turn on the digital piano.
To return left pedal to soft pedal, turn power off and then
back on again.

keyboard, you can also record to one track while playing back
from the other track. The following procedures cover each of
these operations.
Memory Capacity
• There are two song memory tracks named Track A and
Track B. The two tracks can store a combined total of
approximately 5,200 notes.
• The indicator lamp of the track you are recording to flashes
at high speed to let you know that remaining memory
capacity is running low.
• Recording stops automatically whenever memory becomes
full.
Recorded Data
• Anything you played on the keyboard (received MIDI data
not recorded)
• Tone settings
• Tempo and beat settings used during recording
• Pedal operations
• Reverb settings
