However, the tone, rhythm, and other settings you configure
on the Digital Keyboard’s console normally are returned to
their initial power on defaults whenever you turn off power.
You can configure the Digital Keyboard so it remembers its
latest setup or to apply a predetermined default setup each
time you turn it on. For details, see “AutoResume (Auto
Resume)” (page E-134) and “Default (Default Settings)” (page
E-134).
* The following data and settings are always retained even
when power is turned off.
– Registration setup data (page E-66)
– Song sequencer data (page E-68)
– User rhythm data (page E-103)

Mixer Overview
The sound source of this Digital Keyboard is capable of
sounding up to 32 individual parts simultaneously. Each part
can be controlled individually, and each part can be
configured to sound a different musical instrument. Different
tones can be assigned to each part when using layer and split
to sound multiple tones at the same time, and to sound
multiple instruments at the same time with Auto
Accompaniment.
The mixer can be used to assign such tones and to configure
other settings for each part, and to configure global effect
settings applied to all parts. The mixer provides you with the
means to make fine adjustments to a wide variety of settings,
from note generation to note output.
How Parts are Organized
This Digital Keyboard has a total of 32 parts: A01 through
A16, and B01 through B16. Each part has a specific purpose.
Use the table below as a reference to determine the purpose
of each part when using the mixer to configure the settings of
a part.

You can create a user tone by editing one of the built-in preset
tones.
• This section covers editing of preset tone groups A through
J.
• For information about editing group L (drawbar organ)
tones, see “Editing Drawbar Organ Tones” (page E-52).
Tone Creation Overview
The preset tones built into this Digital Keyboard consist of a
number of parameters. To create a user tone, you first recall a
preset tone (A:001 to J:128) and then modify its parameters to
change it to your own original tone.
Note that drum set sounds (J:129 to J:146) cannot be used as
the basis of a user tone.
The illustration nearby shows the parameters that make up
the preset tones, and what each parameter does. As can be
seen in the illustration, parameters can be divided into four
groups, each of which is described in detail below.

Using the Tone Editor
(1) Tone Characteristic Waveform
• Tone Setting
Specifies which of the preset tones should be used as the
original tone.
(2) Volume Characteristic Parameters
These parameters control how the tone changes over time,
from when the keyboard key is pressed until the tone decays.
You can specify changes in volume and sound
characteristics.
• Attack time
This is the rate or time it takes for the tone to reach its highest
volume level. You can specify a fast rate, where the tone
reaches its highest volume level immediately, a slow rate
where it gradually rises, or something in between.
• Release time
This is the rate or time it takes for the tone volume to fall to
zero after a keyboard key is released. You can specify a
release that ranges from a sudden fall to zero, to one that
gradually falls to zero.
(3) Tone Pitch Parameters
• Vibrato Type, Vibrato Delay, Vibrato Rate, Vibrato
Depth
These parameters adjust the vibrato effect, which causes
periodic changes in the tone.
• Octave Shift
This parameter controls the octave of all tones.
(4) Tone Characteristic Setting Parameters
• Volume
This parameter controls the overall volume of the tone.
• Touch Sense
This parameter controls changes in volume and timbre in
accordance with the relative amount of pressure applied to
the keyboard keys. You can specify more volume for stronger
pressure and less volume or a lighter pressure, or you can
specify the same volume regardless of how much pressure is
applied to the keys.
• Reverb Send, Chorus Send, DSP Line , DSP Type, DSP
Parameters
These parameters control the effects applied to tones.

Your Digital Keyboard comes with drawbar organ tones built
in that you can use for mixing waveform ratios, just like a
drawbar organ. The nine sliders, which correspond to
drawbars, can be used to change harmonic overtone level
settings and to create sounds by adding percussion and click
sounds in real time as you play. A button is also provided to
switch the rotary effect between fast and slow.
You also can edit parameters that are unique to drawbar
organ tones to create and store your own original user
drawbar organ tones.
2. Press the R-12 ([L] DRAWBAR ORGAN) button
to select the drawbar organ tone group.
• This displays the screen of one of the drawbar organ
tones. The level meter shows the harmonic overtone
levels for the foot “lengths” preset for the currently
selected drawbar organ tone.

To do this:
Do this:
Adjust tone harmonic
overtone levels
Shift sliders D-4 (16') through D-12
(1') upwards and downwards.
• Shifting one of the sliders
upwards or downwards changes
the harmonic overtone of the
corresponding foot “length” from
its current level (the level preset
for the tone).*1
• You also can configure the level
meter so it indicates the harmonic
overtone level of each slider
position. For more information,
see “To configure the level meter
to show the harmonic overtone
level of each slider position”
(page E-51).
To configure the level meter to show the
harmonic overtone level of each slider
position

under “To select and play with a drawbar organ
tone” (page E-50).
• The level meter shows the harmonic overtone levels for
the foot “lengths” preset for the currently selected
drawbar organ tone.
• You also could skip this step and start from step 2 of
this procedure, if you want.
2. Hold down the R-12 (MANUAL) button until the
foot “length” values (16' through 1') along the
top of the level meter flash twice. You can
release the button at this time.
• This will cause the level meter to indicate the current
positions of sliders D-4 (16') through D-12 (1'), and
apply applicable harmonic overtone levels to the
current tone.
Use the D-2 (PERCUSSION

Using Music Presets
Music presets provide one-touch access to Auto
Accompaniment, tone, reverb, and other settings that are
configured in accordance with preset chord progressions. A
total of 305 presets let you easily configure the keyboard for a
wide variety of different musical styles. Chord progressions
include both short loops of a few measures that are great for
improvisation, as well as progressions for entire songs. Chord
progressions are also fun just to listen to.
In addition to built-in presets, you can create your own original
music presets (user presets). You can record chord
progressions up to 999 measures long, which provides plenty
of versatility for long songs.
Music presets are divided among six groups, each of which
corresponds to one of the RHYTHM buttons from [A] through
[F]. Groups [A] through [E] are built-in preset groups, while
Group [F] is the user preset group.

Panel Settings and Header Settings
Before starting recording with the song sequencer, you need
to select the tone and rhythm, and also configure other
settings such as tempo, mixer settings, etc. These are called
“panel settings” because they are configured using the Digital
Keyboard’s control panel. When you start recording, panel
settings are stored in the header of the song. Settings in the
header of a song are called “header settings”.
• The “Recording Start” settings under “System Track and
Track 01 through 16 Common Recording Content” (page
E-71), “System Track Recording Content” (page E-71) and
“Track 01 through 16 Recording Content (page E-71) are
stored as header settings.

Editing Events
The song sequencer records all Digital Keyboard operations
you perform while playing as “events”, which are the smallest
unit of data that makes up a song. Playing a single note on the
keyboard, for example, stores the following events: note start
measure, beat, and track, note pitch, note length, and note
intensity.
The following operations are supported during event editing.
• Deleting events
• Inserting events
• Copying events within a specific range to a desired location
• Quantizing* note events
• Deleting pitch bender events
• Adjusting note event velocity values
• Adjusting note event gate time values
• Selecting the type of events that appear on the Event Editor
screen (View Select)
• Inserting or deleting beat events
• Directly inputting note events (step input)
• This displays the event editor menu shown below.
• Next, select the menu item that corresponds to the type
of operation you want to perform. Details about each
operation are provided in the procedures of this section.
* Quantize is an operation that automatically adjusts the
note-on timing of a note event to match a reference note.
E-87
Using the Song Sequencer
The following explains the meaning of each screen position.
Event Types and Screen Content
The event editor screen displays the individual events that
make up a song as values and characters as shown in the
sample screen below.
Event being edited (selected event) (Center of screen)
Number
Description
1
For all event types, indicates the even location
(timing) in the following format:
measure:beat:tick. A “tick” is a time unit that is
shorter than one beat. Song sequencer data uses
96 ticks per beat (for 2/4 to 8/4) or 48 ticks per
beat (for 2/8 to 16/8).
2
For almost all events, this position shows an
abbreviation indicating the event type. “Bend” in
display example (2) stands for “pitch bender
event”. Note events (display example (1)) and
chord events are different in that this position
shows the event parameter (note name for a note
event, root for a chord event) setting value.
For information about what is displayed at this
position and the corresponding event type, see
the “Event Data List” (page E-89).
3
This position shows parameter setting values that
corresponds to the event type. When an event
has multiple parameters, use the R-17 (u, i)
buttons to move the cursor, which will scroll the
display between the parameters. The name of the
parameter at the current cursor position will be
displayed in position 4.
4
This position indicates where the cursor is
currently located as “MEAS.” (measure), “BEAT”
(beat), or “TICK” (tick).
Cursor (solid line)
Events before (previous event) and after
(following event) the current event
The event editor screen shows three events at one time. The
event in the middle line is the selected event. You can change
the value where the solid-line cursor is located. A broken line
under a setting value indicates that the cursor can be moved
to that value.
■ Reading Event Data

About the Pattern Sequencer
You can use the pattern sequencer to create accompaniment
patterns that sound while using the Digital Keyboard’s Auto
Accompaniment function and store them as user rhythms.
Rhythms, Accompaniment Patterns, and
Instrument Parts
Each of the Digital Keyboard’s rhythms provides six different
accompaniment patterns named INTRO, NORMAL, NORMAL
FILL-IN, VARIATION, VARIATION FILL-IN, and ENDING.
Each accompaniment pattern can be made up of eight
instrument parts (drums, percussion, bass, and chord 1
through chord 5).
The overall configuration of a single rhythm is as shown
below.

The pattern sequencer is a function that allows editing and
creation of the various accompaniment patterns that make up
a single rhythm, part-by-part. You can record each part of all
of the accompaniment patterns from scratch to create a
completely original new rhythm. You also can partially edit an
existing rhythm (by, for example, editing only one of the parts
of an accompaniment pattern) or simply modify its mixer
settings if you want.
E-102
C-17
Recordable Data
You can use the pattern sequencer to record keyboard play
(note data), PITCH BEND wheel (S-1) operations, and S-2
(MODULATION) button operations.
Instrument Part Editing and Rec Areas
As a general rule, pattern sequencer editing operations are
performed on an instrument part basis. The pattern sequencer
maintains special memory areas called “rec areas” for each
instrument part during rhythm editing. These areas are used
when recording keyboard notes.
When editing with the pattern sequencer, there may be
previously existing rhythm data remaining for some of the
instrument parts, which will make it impossible to use the rec
areas. The status of an instrument part that still contains
previously existing rhythm data is “Fix Data”.
You can use the pattern sequencer screen to check whether
the currently selected instrument part is in the rec area or if it
is “Fix Data”.
You can display the pattern sequencer screen by pressing the
C-4 (PATTERN SEQUENCER) button. This will display the
pattern sequencer editing screen for the currently selected
rhythm (preset rhythm or previously stored user rhythm). The
initial screen shows the drum part of the NORMAL
accompaniment pattern of the rhythm being edited. Note “Fix
Data” in the lower left corner. This is the current status of the
currently displayed instrument part.
Using the Pattern Sequencer
The following describes each of the different instrument part
statuses that appear in the lower left corner of the screen.
When this is
displayed:
It means this:
Fix Data
(Fixed Data)
Instrument part data from a preset
rhythm or user rhythm. The only
settings that can be edited for an
instrument part with this status are
mixer settings. Real-time recording of
keyboard notes and event editing are
not allowed.
Recorded Data
(Recorded Data)
Instrument part is being edited using a
rec area, and recorded data is
contained in the rec area. Mixer
settings, real-time recording of
keyboard notes, and event editing are
allowed for an instrument part with this
status.
Empty
(No data)
Instrument part is being edited using a
rec area, but there is no recorded data
in the rec area (rec area empty). Mixer
settings, real-time recording of
keyboard notes, and event editing are
allowed for an instrument part with this
status.
User Rhythm Numbers
Rhythm areas numbered F:001 through F:100 are for storage
of user rhythms. You can have up to 100 user rhythms stored
in memory at one time. You can recall a stored user rhythm by
pressing the L-9 ([F] USER RHYTHMS) button. See “Playing
an Auto Accompaniment” (page E-24) for more information.
Creating a User Rhythm
This section explains the various methods you can use to
create user rhythms.
■ Editing One or More Parts of an Existing Rhythm
With this procedure, you edit an existing preset rhythm or
previously stored user rhythm to create a new rhythm.
With this method, you can select and edit (or record anew)
specific parts of an existing accompaniment pattern and store
the result.
The following is the general flow for this method.
Check the content of the rhythm you will edit and
determine how (what part of what accompaniment
pattern*) you will edit it.
Use the rec menu to configure settings related to
accompaniment pattern recording.
Display the instrument part for the accompaniment
pattern you want to edit and then configure the desired
mixer settings and record keyboard notes.
After editing is complete, store the rhythm as a user
rhythm.
* You cannot edit the INTRO or ENDING of an
accompaniment pattern of an existing rhythm.
For full details about this procedure, see “To rehearse before
editing an existing rhythm” (page E-104) and “To edit an
existing rhythm” (page E-107).
E-103
Using the Pattern Sequencer
■ Replacing the Accompaniment Patterns of an
Existing Rhythm with New Recordings
With this procedure, you re-record one or more of the
accompaniment patterns of an existing preset rhythm or
previously stored user rhythm to create a new rhythm.
In this case, you clear all of the rec areas included in an
accompaniment pattern and then create new recordings of
each part of the accompaniment pattern. Use this method, for
example, when you want to create only a new INTRO
accompaniment pattern for an existing rhythm.
The following is the general flow for this method.
To rehearse before editing an existing
rhythm
1. Select the rhythm you want to edit in order to
create your user rhythm.
2. Press the C-4 (PATTERN SEQUENCER) button.
Clear all of the rec areas of the accompaniment pattern
you want to record anew.
• This displays the pattern sequencer screen.
Use the rec menu to configure settings related to
accompaniment pattern recording.
Currently selected instrument part
On the edit menu, configure accompaniment pattern
number of measure and beat settings.
Sequentially record each of the parts.
After editing is complete, store the entire rhythm as a
user rhythm.
For full details about this procedure, see “To create a new
accompaniment pattern” (page E-109).
■ Newly Recording All Accompaniment Patterns of
a Rhythm
With this procedure, you create a new rhythm from scratch,
without using an existing rhythm.
The following is the general flow for this method.
Clear all of the rec areas included in the currently
selected rhythm.
Use the rec menu to configure settings related to
accompaniment pattern recording.
On the edit menu, configure accompaniment pattern
number of measure and beat settings.
Sequentially record each of the parts of each
accompaniment pattern.
After editing is complete, store the rhythm as a user
rhythm.
For full details about this procedure, see “To create a new
rhythm from scratch” (page E-111).

6. Use the R-17 (u, i) buttons to select the
instrument part you want to edit.
7. Edit the selected accompaniment pattern
instrument part as desired.
• While performing the procedure below, you can press
the L-17 (START/STOP) button and perform repeat
playback of only the accompaniment pattern you are
editing. Each press of the L-17 (START/STOP) button
starts or stops playback.
(1) While [RHYTHM] is displayed on the EASY EDIT
screen, specify the number of the rhythm you want to
assign to the instrument part of the selected
accompaniment pattern.
Settings are configured using the same procedures as
those for rhythm selection. Perform steps 1, 2, and 3
under “Playing an Auto Accompaniment” (page E-24).
Specifying rhythm number F:101 at this time makes it
possible to assign the rhythm data currently being
edited with the pattern sequencer.
(2) Configure the mixer settings of the selected
accompaniment pattern instrument part as desired.
• For details about mixer setting operations, see step
5 under “To edit an existing rhythm” (page E-107).
• Performing rhythm assignment in step (1) above also
will automatically change mixer settings to the initial
defaults for the assigned rhythm. Because of this,
changing the rhythm after configuring mixer settings in
step (2) will cause the configured mixer settings to be
cleared.
• When INTRO or ENDING is selected as the
accompaniment pattern, the same rhythm is assigned
to all eight instrument parts. Because of this,
performing rhythm assignment in step (1) for an INTRO
or ENDING will change the rhythm of all instrument
parts at one time.
Editing Individual Events
(Event Editor)
The pattern sequencer records the keyboard, pitch bender,
and modulation operations recorded for each instrument part
as “events”. Playing a note on the keyboard, for example,
stores the following as events: note start measure, beat, and
track, note pitch, note length, and note intensity.
The following editing operations are supported for individual
events.
• Deleting events
• Inserting events
• Copying events within a specific range to a desired location
• Quantizing* note events
• Deleting pitch bender events
• Adjusting note event velocity values
• Adjusting note event gate time values
• Selecting the type of events that appear on the Event Editor
screen (View Select)
• Directly inputting note events (step input)
* Quantize is an operation that automatically adjusts the note
on timing of a note event to match a reference note.
• You can perform event editing on an instrument part
whose status (page E-103) is “Recorded Data” or
“Empty”. You cannot configure part parameters for an
instrument part whose status is “Fix Data”.
• Though you cannot perform event editing directly on
an instrument part whose status is “Fix Data”, you can
copy such an instrument part to a rec area and edit the
copied data. For details about the copy operation, see
“To copy preset or user rhythm instrument part data to
a rec area” (page E-119).
8. Repeat steps 5 through 7 to edit other
accompaniment patterns and instrument parts.
9. After editing is complete, adjust the tempo of
the rhythm as desired.
• The tempo you set here becomes the initial default
tempo.
10. For details about how to save the final version
of the rhythm as a user rhythm, see “To store
an edited or newly created rhythm” (page
E-111).

Event Editor Screen Contents
The event editor screen shows the individual events recorded
to an instrument part as shown in the sample screen below.
Event being edited (selected event)
● Pitch bender, modulation
“Bend” (pitch bender even) or “Mod” (modulation event) is
indicated to the right of the event location information,
followed by parameter value. “VALU” is displayed at 1 when
the cursor is located at a parameter value.

Cursor
Events before (previous event) and after
(following event) the current event
• The event editor screen shows three events at one time.
The event in the middle line is the selected event. You can
change the value where the solid-line cursor is located. A
broken line under a setting value indicates that the cursor
can be moved to that value.
• The values in the format “001:01:00” at the beginning of the
event indicate the recording location (timing) of the event as
measure:beat:tick. A “tick” is a time unit that is shorter than
one beat. Pattern sequencer data uses 96 ticks per beat
(for 2/4 to 8/4) or 48 ticks per beat (for 2/8 to 16/8).
Pattern sequencer records three types of events: notes
(keyboard play), pitch bender operations, and modulation
operations. These events are represented on the screen as
described below.

Pattern Sequencer Part Parameters
■ Table (Chord conversion table)
Recording of each accompaniment pattern is normally performed using C major (root of C, major type).* When playing an Auto
Accompaniment, you can use a root other than C and a chord type other than major, if you want. This is accomplished by using a
“chord conversion table” to convert the C major recorded data to another root and/or chord type. Regardless of what root or chord
type you specify, the currently selected chord table is used to make corrections to suit the instrument parts and the type of music
being played in order to ensure musically natural accompaniment.
* Depending on the rec menu “PlayChord” setting. For details, see “To configure pattern rec settings (Rec Menu)” (page E-106).
With this parameter, you can select from among the 19 types of chord conversion tables listed below.

Using the Pattern Sequencer
■ BreakPoint (Break Point)
This parameter specifies the key, from C to B, that is the point
at which Auto Accompaniment bass and chord notes drop one
octave.
For example when F is specified as the break point, a C major
chord recorded as C3E3G3 (CEG) becomes D3F#3A3 (DF#A
raised one note each) when D is fingered on the chord
keyboard, E3G#3B3 (EG#B raised one note each) when E is
fingered, and F2A2C3 (FAC dropped one octave) when F is
fingered.
■ Invert (Inversion)
This parameter specifies whether or not chords during Auto
Accompaniment play should mirror inverted forms of the
original chord (EGC and GCE for CEG).
For example, let’s say that the original recorded C major
chord is CEG and an F chord is fingered on the chord
keyboard. If “oFF” is selected for this setting, the chord will be
directly converted to FAC. If “on” (or “7th”) is selected, the
chord will be converted to CFA, which is the inverted form that
is nearest to CEG. The transition of chord notes during
playback when “on” (or “7th”) is selected is smaller, so
accompaniment sounds more natural.
Note that you should select “7th” in place of “on” only if “C7”
was specified for the “PlayChord” setting when recording the
accompaniment pattern and if you selected “09 (Chord 7th)”
for the chord conversion table.
* “PlayChord” is a rec menu setting. For details, see “To
configure pattern rec settings (Rec Menu)” (page E-106).
Instrument Part Operations
To clear a rec area of an instrument part
1. While the pattern sequencer screen is
displayed, use buttons L-13 (INTRO) through
L-16 (SYNCHRO/ENDING) to select the
accompaniment pattern you want.
• The rec areas of the instrument parts included in the
accompaniment pattern you select here are the ones
that can be cleared by this procedure.
• If you select an INTRO or ENDING, the following steps
can be performed only when all parts are in rec areas
(“Recorded Data” or “Empty” part status).
2. While holding down the R-13 (FUNCTION)
button, press the C-4 (EDIT) button to display
the edit menu.
3. Use the R-17 (t, y) buttons to move the 0 to
“PartEdit” and then press the R-16 (ENTER)
button.
• This displays the “Part Edit” screen.
4. The 0 should be next to “Clear”, so press the
R-16 (ENTER) button.
• This displays the “Clear Part” screen.
• When selecting “on” (or “7th”) for this setting, make sure
that you select “C” for the “BreakPoint” (Break Point)
setting.
■ Retrigger (Retrigger)
This parameter specifies how accompaniment pattern play is
affected by a chord change that occurs part way through a
pattern.
When “on” is selected, the pattern “retriggers,” which causes
the currently playing note to change to the corresponding note
of the newly fingered chord. When “oFF” is selected, a chord
change causes the currently sounding note to be cut off, and
the next note of the pattern of the newly fingered chord to be
played.
■ BendRange (Bend Range)
This parameter specifies the bend range for pitch bender
operation in semitone steps

• Do not touch a memory card loaded in the Digital Keyboard
while recording or playback is in progress. This can cause
operational problems due to electrostatic charge and creates
the risk of making the card unusable. Before touching the
loaded memory card, first stop any ongoing recording or
playback operation.
• Formatting a memory card on the Digital Keyboard will reserve
space for audio recording, which will reduce the total capacity
of the memory card by approximately 640MB. Using a
computer to open a memory card that has been formatted on
the Digital Keyboard will show this reduced capacity, even if
there are no files on the card. This is normal and does not
indicate malfunction of the memory card.

• If you want to use SMF or rhythm data on a memory card
that is not supported by this Digital Keyboard (such as an
SD memory card with capacity less than 2GB), you need
either to copy the data to a supported memory card on the
Digital Keyboard, or use Data Manager to transfer the data
from a computer to the Digital Keyboard. For more
information, see “Importing Data from Various Storage
Media” (page E-147).
Card and Card Slot Precautions
• Be sure to observe the precautions provided in the
documentation that comes with the memory card.
• Memory cards have a write-protect switch. Use it when you
want to protect the data on the card from accidental
deletion.
• Avoid using a memory card under the following conditions.
Such conditions can corrupt data stored on the memory
card.
– Areas subjected to high temperature, high humidity, or
corrosive gas.
– Areas subjected to strong electrostatic charge and digital
noise.
• Never touch the contacts of a memory card when loading it
or removing it from the Digital Keyboard.
Using a Memory Card
• The message “Please Wait” will remain on the display while
a data save operation is in progress. Do not perform any
other operation while it is displayed.
Turning off the Digital Keyboard or removing the memory
card can cause Digital Keyboard data to be deleted or
become corrupted. It also can cause the Digital Keyboard
to fail to turn on when the L-1 (POWER) button is pressed.
If this happens, refer to “Troubleshooting” (page E-150).
• Never insert anything besides a memory card into the card
slot. Doing so creates the risk of malfunction.
• Electrostatic charge from your fingers or the memory card
to the card slot can cause malfunction of the Digital
Keyboard. If this happens, turn the Digital Keyboard off and
then back on again.
• A memory card can become quite warm after very long use
in the card slot. This is normal and does not indicate
malfunction.
Entering the Card Mode
Enter the card mode when you want to perform memory card
operations.
• While in the rhythm mode (page E-7) press the C-9 (CARD)
button to enter the card mode.
This will cause the : indicator to disappear from the
display and the ; indicator to appear.
Loading and Removing a Memory
Card
• A memory card must be positioned correctly when
being loaded into the Digital Keyboard. Trying to force
an improperly oriented memory card into the slot can
damage the memory card and the slot.
1. With the top of the memory card facing
upwards (so you can see it), carefully insert it
into the Digital Keyboard’s SD card slot (T-1)
until stops with a click.

2. To remove the memory card first press it into
the slot further.
• This will cause the memory card to disengage and eject
partially. Pull the memory card the rest of the way out of
the slot.
If the message “No Card” appears on the display, it means
there is no memory card in the card slot. For details about
what appears on the display while a card is loaded, see
“Playing a Music File from a Memory Card” (page E-142).

DSP Type List
All of the Digital Keyboard’s preset DSPs belong to one of the DSP types shown in the table below. When creating a user DSP
(page E-33) or when using the tone editor (page E-44) to edit the DSP applied to a tone, you need to select one of the DSP types
in the table.
• Type numbers 01 through 14 are single type DSPs, while numbers 15 through 46 are dual type DSPs. A single type DSP is one
with a single structure, while a dual type is a combination of two single type DSPs.
• The name of a dual DSP is formed by its two constituent single DSP names, in the order that they are applied. For example, type
15 named “Wah-Compressor” connects in line to “Wah” and “Compressor”, in that sequence.

DSP Parameter List
■ Single Type DSP Parameters
01: Wah
This is a “wah” effect that can automatically affect the
frequency using an LFO.
Parameters and Value Ranges:
1 :Resonance (0 to 127)
Adjusts the strength of resonance.
2 :Manual (0 to 127)
Adjusts the wah filter reference frequency.
3 :LFO Rate (0 to 127)
Adjusts the LFO rate.
4 :LFO Depth (0 to 127)
Adjusts the LFO depth.
5 :LFO Waveform (off, sin, tri, random)
Selects the LFO waveform.

Compresses the input signal, which can have the effect of
suppressing level variation and make it possible to sustain
dampened sounds longer.
Parameters and Value Ranges:
1 :Attack (0 to 127)
Adjusts the attack amount of the input signal. A smaller
value causes prompt compressor operation, which
suppresses the attack of the input signal. A larger values
delays compressor operation, which causes the attack of
the input signal to be output as-is.
2 :Release (0 to 127)
Adjusts the time from the point the input signal drops
below a certain level until the compression operation is
stopped. When an attack feeling is desired (no
compression at the onset of sound), set this parameter to
as low a value as possible. To have compression applied
at all times, set a high value.
3 :Level (0 to 127)
Adjusts the output level.
4 :Threshold (0 to 127)
Adjusts the volume level at which the compression
operation starts.
03: Distortion
Digital distortion that applies an overtone to the input signal
and distorts it.
Parameters and Value Ranges:
1 :Gain (0 to 127)
Adjusts the input signal gain.
2 :Level (0 to 127)
Adjusts the output level.
04: Enhancer
Phase shifts low-range sounds and high-range sounds of the
input signal to enhance the signal’s profile.
Parameters and Value Ranges:
1 :Low Frequency (0 to 127)
Adjusts the low range enhancer frequency.
2 :Low Phase (0 to 127)
Adjusts the phase shift amount of the low-range enhancer.
3 :High Frequency (0 to 127)
Adjusts the high range enhancer frequency.
4 :High Phase (0 to 127)
Adjusts the phase shift amount of the high-range
enhancer.

Adjusts the tremolo rate.
2 :LFO Depth (0 to 127)
Adjusts the tremolo depth.
3 :LFO Waveform (sin, tri)
Selects the LFO waveform.
07: Phaser
Produces a distinctive pulsating, broad sound by using an
LFO to change the phase of the input signal and then mixes it
with the original input signal.
Parameters and Value Ranges:
1 :Resonance (0 to 127)
Adjusts the strength of the resonance.
2 :LFO Rate (0 to 127)
Adjusts the LFO rate.
3 :LFO Depth (0 to 127)

14: Lo-Fi
■ Dual Type DSP Parameters
Applies various types of noise to the input signal to reproduce
a retro Lo-Fi sound.
Includes wow and flutter for rotational fluctuation like that in
tapes and records, a Noise 1 generator that generates
continual FM radio type, and a Noise 2 generator that
generates record play types scratch noise.
Parameters and Value Ranges:
1 :Wow and Flutter Rate (0 to 127)
Adjusts the wow and flutter rate.
2 :Wow and Flutter Depth (0 to 127)
Adjusts the wow and flutter depth.
3 :Noise1 Level (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Adjusts the level of Noise Generator 1.
4 :Noise2 Level (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Adjusts the level of Noise Generator 2.
5 :Noise2 Density (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Adjusts the frequency of Noise Generator 2.
6 :Bit (0, 1, 2, 3)
Distorts the sound. A larger number produces greater
distortion.
Dual type DSPs are configured by combining two different
single type DSPs. Use the procedure below to determine what
parameters that can be configured for each dual type DSP,
and the operation, and setting ranges of dual type DSPs.
Example: Type number 29: Distortion-Wah
1. The DSP type name has two parts: a left side part and a
right side part.
Distortion-Wah 3 “Distortion” and “Wah”
2. Find out what parameters you can configure by looking up
the left side part of a dual type DSP in the “Type Name”
column of the table below.
Important!
Raising the noise level while a note is not sounding will cause
noise to sound, even if there is no input signal.

3. Find the same type names in the table under “Single Type
DSP Parameters” on pages E-157 through E-159, and note
the operation and setting ranges of the items that are the
same as those shown in the “Configurable Parameters”
column of the above table.
• In our “Distortion-Wah” example, the left side part of the
name is “Distortion” so we can see in the above table
that “Gain” and “Level” parameters can be configured.
You can find out about the operations and setting ranges
of “Gain” and “Level” by referring to “03: Distortion” on
page E-157.
4. Next, repeat steps 2 and 3 above for the right side part of
the dual type DSP parameter name.
• The parameter numbers that appear on the parameter
setting screen start from 1, and the number is
incremented for each successive parameter.
The parameter numbers of our “Distortion-Wah” example
would be as shown below.
1: Gain
2: Level
3: LFO Waveform
4: LFO Rate
5: LFO Depth
