TALKING OWNER'S MANUALS PRODUCTS PROVIDE EXCELLENT INSTRUCTION
INTRODUCING...PLAY RIGHT NOW! Two Videos with Printed Instructional
Aids. Learn using any Casio keyboard.
WHAT IS A TALKING OWNER'S MANUAL?
A Talking Owner's Manual™ is a proven learning system of spoken product instructions on audio cassette for CASIO keyboards. It is a recorded explanation of how to
operate and use the electronic functions and features found on a CASIO keyboard.
As you listen to a T.O.M., it explains step-by-step the layout, control groups, color
codings, connections, care and safety, usable accessories, and what the knobs,
buttons, switches, sliders and displays can do on the keyboard. Since it is nearly
impossible to describe sound combinations in a printed book, the demonstrations and explanations are supported by musical examples with sounds to make
learning to operate your keyboard easier than printed manuals.
Our audio instructions are created for those who dislike wading through printed
manuals, can't read small printing, lack the time or patience to understand the operational steps described in print. A Talking Owner's Manual will save you hours
of time and frustration as you learn to use your keyboard. You'll successfully
operate the buttons, controls and hundreds of combinations to get the most sound,
functions, music and fun from the model you own after a couple of listenings.
T.O.M.s are educationally produced by a world-renown CASIO expert product
specialist using examples of the sounds from the specific CASIO keyboard models.
Instructions are paced to make learning to operate your keyboard step-by-step a
rewarding experience.
Listening to these spoken instructions is like having an expert teacher look over your
shoulder and explain how to get the most out of the exciting features designed into
your keyboard. Each cassette is produced for a specific model unless very similar
models are combined on one tape. Our simplified T.O.M. Product instructions are
thorough, easy to understand ... and very affordable!
Over 500,000 Talking Owner's Manuals cassettes and videos have been purchased
for use with CASIO products.
Filmed using three different CASIO CTK models. Created for beginners
This two video set features Tom Piggott with solid hands-on teaching and learning to play instruction for 2.5 hours! Filmed on CASIO CTK-series keyboards and
presented by the master musician and TV celebrity co-host demonstrator on the
Home Shopping Network.
Video #1 gets you started playing ... beginning with warm-up finger aerobics using only the black keys, and playing simple songs including: Auld Lang Zyne and
Amazing Grace! As you continue to learn and progress, you'll understand basic
chords, using the white keys and be guided through an introduction to theory and
reading music and symbols using the included KeyStrip Set. Sounds of chords used
in popular music and CASIO's rhythms are also covered as well as choosing tones.
Video 2 shows an overview of CASIO keyboard functions and effectively using 18
different sounds. Other features such as splits, layers, recording memory features,
and introduction to MIDI round out this fabulous video instruction series so that
you'll be enthused, have fun, and Play Right Now! No matter what model keyboard
you own, the teaching from this video will improve your playing.

• They'll protect at home, in studios, churches, boats, RV's, a gig, and on long-term
engagements.
• KEYCOVERS are cleanable with mild soap and water or vinyl cleaner. you'll eliminate a lot
of dusting over the years when your keyboard is "covered" with KEYCOVERS.

GLOSSARY OF KEYBOARD TERMS
AD-LIB Musician
In the CTK-500, the feature adjusts the entire keyboard so that any key you play
matches the auto- accompaniment or "Jukebox" song being played. The entire

Arpeggio
Has a series of preset 4-note arpeggios.
Auto-Accompaniment
System in which you can generate complete backgrounds with drums, bass, and
chord parts with the left hand, while you play melodies and solos with right hand.
3 different systems are available: Casio Chord, Fingered Chord, and Full Range Chord
(only on certain models).
Auto-Harmonize
Feature which adds chord notes of the auto-accompaniment to each note you play
in the melody with your right hand.
Break Beat
Manually activated (rather than automatic) patterns which can be stopped instantly
or retriggered anytime to create new or interesting patterns.
Casio Chord
Simplified auto-accompaniment system for the novice player. Ability to play chords
not required.
Chord Memory
Memorizes a background pattern for you to play over, consisting of a sequence of
left-hand auto-chord (Casio Chord or Fingered Chord).

rhythms.
ELA
"Expert Logic Accompaniment" in the CTK-500, a new intelligent auto-accompaniment system that makes real-time decisions about the chords being played, and

background.
Fingered Chord
Auto-accompaniment system for the more advanced player; actual chord formations
are played and complete bass/chord/drum background pattern is generated.
Free Session
Automatic moving chord progression 4, 8, or 12 bars, so you have both hands free
for soloing.
Full-Range Chord
Auto-accompaniment system that allows either the triggering of chords or the playing of the melody across the entire keyboard, depending on whether you play a
chord or single note melody.
General MIDI
International standard layout for keyboard tones and other parameters, which
ensures that all MIDI keyboards, modules and software from all manufacturers will be
functionally compatible, and offers somewhat greater ease of use. Some CASIO units
do not follow the General MIDI scheme, but are fully functional in most MIDI applications nonetheless. Most of the larger Casios are of the General MIDI design.
Graphic Equalizer
Expanded tone control, often 3, 5 or 7 sections. Gives you more control over the
sound than a conventional bass/treble control.
Karaoke
Cassette machine with microphone for sing-along. The correct pronunciation is "kahdah-oh-kay." In Japanese, it literally means "empty orchestra."
Layer
Allows you to stack two sounds together across the entire range of the keyboard, so
both will sound on each key.
LCD
Liquid Crystal Display, a screen which gives an informative and attractive readout of
