* Please keep these precautions 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:
• 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.
• 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.
• If the power cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is asudden
loss of sound during use of the instrument, or if any unusual smells or smoke should appear to be caused by iI, immediately turn off the power switch, disconnect the electric plug from the outlet, and have the instrument
inspected by qual ified Yamaha service personnel.
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required
voltage is printed on the name plate of the instrument.
• Before cleaning the instrument, always remove the electric plug from the
outlet Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may
have accumulated on it.
~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:
• 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 aposition where anyone could walk on, trip over,
or roll anything over it.
• 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.
• Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using amultiple-con­
nector. Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause over­
heating in the outlet.
• Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the instrument is not to be
used for extended periods of lime, or during electrical storms.
• 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.
• Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme
cold or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near aheater, or in acar during the
day) to prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration or damage to the inter­
na components.
• Do not use the instrument near other electrical products such as televisions,
radios, or speakers, since this might cause interference which can affect
proper operation of the other products.
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might acciden­
tally fall over.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables.
• When cleaning the instrument, use asoft, dry cloth. Do not use paintthinners,
solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths. Also, do
not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might
discolor the panel or keyboard.
• On the CLP-880PE, gently remove dust and dirt with asoft cloth. Do not wipe
too hard since small particles of dirt can scratch the instrument's finish.
• (For instruments with akey cover) Take care that the key cover does not
pinch your fingers, and do not insert afinger or hand in the key cover gap.
• (For instruments with akey cover) Never insert or drop paper or metallic or
other objects between the slits of the key cover and the keyboard. If this
happens, immediately turn off the power and remove the electric plug from
the outlet and have the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service
personnel.
• Do not place the instrument against a wall (allow at least 3 cm/one-inch
from the wall), since this can cause inadequate air circulation, and possi­
bly result in the instrument overheating.
• Read carefully the attached documentation explaining the assembly pro­
cess. Failure to assemble the instrument in the proper sequence might
result in damage to the instrument or even injury.
• Do not operate the instrument for a long period of time at a high or un­
comfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If
you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physi­
cian.
.USING THE BENCH (if included)
• Do not play carelessly with or stand on the bench. Using it as atool or
step-ladder or for any other purpose might result in accident or injury.
• Only one person should sit on the bench at atime, in order to prevent the
possibility of accident or injury.
• (For height-adjustable benches) Do not attempt to adjust the bench height
while sitting on the bench, since this can cause excessive force to be im­
posed 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 USER DATA
• On the CLP-880PE, bumping the surface of the instrument with metal, porce­
lain, or other hard objects can cause the finish to crack or peel. Use caution.
• Save all data to an external device such as the Yamaha MIDI Data Filer MDF3,
in order to help prevent the loss of important data due to amalfunction or
user operating error.
• 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.

These jacks are intended for use with an external tone generator module
such as the Yamaha DOU-lO Disk Orchestra Unit. The stereo outputs from
the external tone generator module are connected to the AUX IN L/L+R
and R jacks, allowing the sound of the tone generator to be reproduced via
the Clavinova's internal sound system and speakers. A line-level mono
source can be connected to the L/L+R jack.
~ NOTE 1 • The input signal from the AUX IN jacks is controlled by the Clavinova's volume

o
The AUX OUT L/L+R and R jacks deliver the output of the Clavinova for
connection to an instrument amplifier, mixing console, PA system, or recording
equipment. If you will be connecting the Clavinova to a monaural sound
system, use only the L/L+R jack. When a plug is inserted into the L/L+R jack
only, the left- and right-channel signals are combined and delivered via the L/
L+R jack so you don't lose any of the Clavinova's sound.
~ NOTE 1 • The AUX OUT jack signal must never be returned to the AUX IN jacks, either

The MIDI IN connector receives MIDI data from an external MIDI
device (such as the DOU-IO Disk Orchestra Unit) which can be used to
control the Clavinova. The MIDI THRU connector re-transmits any data
received at the MIDI IN connector, allowing "chaining" of several MIDI
instruments or other devices. The MIDI OUT connector transmits MIDI
data generated by the Clavinova (e.g. note and velocity data produced by
playing the Clavinova keyboard).

11111 The Pedals
JJ~
I
The CLP-820S has two and other models have three foot pedals that
produce a range of expressive effects similar to those produced by the
pedals on an acoustic piano.
J Damper (Right) Pedal ................................................................................ CLP·880/860/840/820
Soft pedal
I
The damper pedal functions in the same way as a damper pedal on
an acoustic piano. When the damper pedal is pressed notes played have
a long sustain. Releasing the pedal immediately stops (damps) any
sustained notes.
On the CLP-880/860, when GRAND PIANO, CLASSICAL PI­
ANO, or JAZZ PIANO is selected the damper pedal also produces a
special "resonance" that simulates the ring of the strings and the sound
board of an acoustic piano.
The CLP-880/860 damper pedal additionally features continuous
damping. This allows you to create shorter effects by pressing the
damper pedal down only part of the way.
Damper pedal
Sostenuto pedal
CLP·820S
~~ • On the CLP·8801860, soundboard depth and damper pedal mode (switchl
continuous) settings can be changed using the "Pedal Functions" (page
32) in the function mode.
Damper pedal
Sostenuto (Center) Pedal (except for CLP-820S) ..................... Soft/Sostenuto pedal
If you playa note or chord on the keyboard and press the sostenuto
pedal while the note(s) are held, those notes will be sustained as long as
the pedal is held (as ifthe damper pedal had been pressed) but all
subsequently played notes will not be sustained. This makes it possible
to sustain a chord, for example, while other notes are played "staccato."
IEm
NOTE
1 • Organ and string voices will continue to sound for as long as the soste­
nuto pedal is depressed.

notes which are already playing when it is pressed.
The left pedal can also be assigned to song start/stop operation (or
sostenuto in the case of the CLP-820S) via the "Left Pedal Mode"
described on page 32.

Touch Sensitivity
JJJ I
Four different types of keyboard touch sensitivity - HARD, MEDIUM, SOFT
or FIXED - can be selected to match different playing styles and preferences.
erHARD
»-~EDIUM
600FT
I
To select a touch sensitivity type press the [TOUCH] button a few
times until the indicator corresponding to the desired type lights (the
indicators light in sequence each time the [TOUCH] button is pressed).
HARD
The HARD setting requires the keys to be played quite hard to
produce maximum loudness.
MEDIUM
The MEDIUM setting produces a fairly "standard" keyboard response.
This is the initial factory default setting.
SOFT
The SOFT setting allows maximum loudness to be produced with
relatively light key pressure.
FIXED (no indicator lit)
All notes are produced at the same volume no matter how hard the
keyboard is played.
When the FIXED type is selected, the volume of notes played in the
FIXED mode can be set by using the [-/NO] and [+/yES] buttons
while the [TOUCH] button is held (the current volume level appears on
the display). The volume range is from 1 through 127. The default
setting is 64.
DE
NOTE
I • This setting does not change the weight of the keyboard.
• The touch sensitivity type and volume set in the FIXED mode will become
the common setting for a/l voices.
Transposition
The Clavinova's TRANSPOSE function makes it possible to shift the pitch of
the entire keyboard up or down in semitone intervals up to a maximum of 12
semitones (Le. a maximum of one octave up or down). "Transposing" the pitch
of the Clavinova keyboard facilitates playing in difficult key signatures, and you
can easily match the pitch of the keyboard to the range of a singer or other
instrumentalist.
Use the [-!NO] or [+/YES] button while holding the [TRANS­
POSE] button to transpose down or up as required. The transposition
range is from "-12" (down one octave) through "0" (normal pitch) to
"12" (up one octave). The amount of transposition appears on the LED
display while the [TRANSPOSE] button is held. The default transpose
setting is "0".
DE
NOTE
I . The [TRANSPOSE] button indicator remains lit when a transpose setting
other than "0" is selected.

one part on top of another, using a different voice if you like. The recorder feature
is a useful adjunct to any keyboard study program, since it lets you hear exactly
how you sound from the listener's perspective. It can also be just plain fun.

Stop Recording ................................................................................................ Changing the Initial Settings ............................................................. The initial voice, tempo, reverb type, reverb depth, and effect settings
made in step 1 of the recording procedure are actually recorded by the
Clavinova.
These initial settings can be changed after the recording is fmished by
pressing the [REC] button to engage the record ready mode, pressing the
appropriate track button, making the required changes, and then pressing
the [REC] button again to exit from the record ready mode and register
the changes.
If you do this, be careful not to press the [START/STOP] button or a
key on the keyboard, either of which will start recording and erase all
previous recorded data on the selected track.
It is possible to cancel the operation even after changes have been
made: change tracks and then press the [REC] button to exit from the
record mode (this also cancels data for the entire song).

.It is possible to play along on the keyboard during playback. In this case, the
playback voice and the voice you play on the keyboard are not the same. The
playback voice is the voice that was set when the data was recorded. The voice
you play on the keyboard is the voice that is selected on the panel.
• The playback volume and tempo can be adjusted by using the [MASTER VOL­
UME] control and [TEMPO ~/,A] buttons (press both [TEMPO ~/,A] buttons
simultaneously to recall the default tempo).
• All recorder data will be retained in memory for about one week after the power is
turned off. If you want to keep your recorded data for longer periods, tum the power
on for a few minutes at least once a week. It is also possible to store it to an
external MIDI storage device such as the Yamaha MIDI Data Filer MDF3 by using
the Bulk Data Dump function described on page 36.
• The track indicators wilJ not light automatically when the power is turned on even if
the recorder contains data. It is therefore necessary to press the track buttons so
that the corresponding green indicators light before starting RECORDER playback.
It is also a good idea to press the track buttons to check if the tracks contain data
before recording. If the green indicator lights when the corresponding track button
is pressed, that track contains data which will be erased and replaced by the
newly-recorded data.
• If the metronome is being used during playback, the metronome will automatically
stop when playback is stopped.
• During recorder playback, the volume of a track which is turned off will always be
"0" (i.e. the "Piano Song Part Cancel Volume" function - page 33
only affects
piano song playback.
• The playback data is not transmitted via the MIDI OUT connector.
• Playback cannot be started when the demo/piano song mode is engaged.
• Playback cannot be started when the recorder contains no data, or when both track

• A Brief Introduction to MIDI
MIDI, the Musical Instrument Digital Interface, is a world­
standard communication interface that allows MIDI-compatible
MIDI Gable
musical instruments and equipment to share musical information and
MIDI IN
control one another. This makes it possible to create "systems" of
MIDI instruments and equipment that offer far greater versatility and
control than is available with isolated instruments. For example,
Clavinova
most MIDI keyboards (including the Clavinova, of course) transmit
note and velocity (touch response) information via the MIDI OUT connector whenever a note is played on the
keyboard. If the MIDI OUT connector is connected to the MIDI IN connector of a second keyboard (synthesizer,
etc.) or a tone generator (essentially a synthesizer with no keyboard), the second keyboard or tone generator will
respond precisely to.notes played on the original transmitting keyboard. The result is that you can effectively
play two instruments at once, providing thick multi-instrument sounds.
This same type of musical information transfer is used for MIDI
Data Being Recorded
sequence recording. A sequence recorder can be used to "record"
MIDI
data received from a Clavinova, for example. When the
Playback Data
recorded
data is played back, the Clavinova automatically "plays"
MIDI IN
the recorded performance in precise detail.
DOU-10
The examples given above really only scratch the surface. MIDI
can do much, much more. The Clavinova MIDI functions allow it to
Clavinova
be used in fairly sophisticated MIDI systems.

NOTE
I
• The rear-panel HOST SELECT switch must be set to "MIDI" in order to use the MIDI connectors. When you use
the TO HOST connector, set the HOST SELECT switch to the appropriate position for the type of computer you
are using (see page 38). In this situation, a/l MIDI settings described below will have affect on the MIDI signal in
and out of the TO HOST connector.
• Always use a high-quality MIDI cable to connect MIDI OUT to MIDI IN terminals. Never use MIDI cables longer
than about 15 meters, since cables longer than this can pick up noise which can cause data errors.

The Function Mode

In any MIDI control setup, the MIDI channels of the transmitting and receiving equipment must
be matched for proper data transfer. A "Multi-timbre" receive mode is also available, which allows
simultaneous reception of different parts on all 16 MIDI channels, allowing the Clavinova to play
multi-channel song data received from a music computer or sequencer. There's also a "1-2" mode
which allows simultaneous reception on channels 1 and 2.
Use the [-INO] and [+/YES] buttons to select the desired transmit or receive channel. The
transmit channel parameter can also be turned "OFF" if you don't want the Clavinova to transmit
any MIDI data. To select the multi-timbre receive mode, set the receive channel to "ALL". Select
"1-2" for multi-timbre reception on channels 1 and 2 only.
Press the [-/NO] and [+/YES] buttons simultaneously to recall the default setting: transmit "1";
receive = "ALL".
~
NOTE
1 • In the duaf mode first voice data is transmitted on its set channel, and in the spfit mode right voice data is
transmitted on its set channel. In the dual mode second voice data is transmitted on the next greater channel
number of the set channel, and in the split mode left voice data is transmitted on the next greater channel
number of the set channel. In either mode, no data is transmitted if the transmit channel is set to "OFF".
• Demo/piano song data and recorder playback data are not transmitted via MIDI.
• No MIDI reception occurs when the demo/piano song mode is engaged.
• Program change and other like channel messages received will not affect the Clavinova's panel settings or
what is baing pfayed on the keyboard.
DJ F7.3/FS.3: Local Control ON/OFF........................................................................................................... "Local Control" refers to the fact that, normally, the
Clavinova keyboard controls its internal tone generator,
allowing the internal voices to be played directly from
DOU·10
the keyboard. This situation is "Local Control On"
since the internal tone generator is controlled locally by
Clavinova its own keyboard.
Local control can be turned OFF, however, so that the Clavinova keyboard does not play the
internal voices, but the appropriate MIDI information is still transmitted via the MIDI OUT connec­
tor when notes are played on the keyboard. At the same time, the internal tone generator responds to
MIDI information received via the MIDI IN connector.
When using the DOU-lO Disk Orchestra Unit with the Clavinova, for example, Local Control
should be turned OFF when recording using the DOU-lO voices only, and ON when recording the
Clavinova voices while listening to playback of the DOU-I0 voices.
MIOI
IN
Use the [-/NO] and [+/YES] buttons to turn local control "On" or "OFF".
Press the [-!NO] and [+iYES] buttons simultaneously to recall the default setting "On".
DJ F7.4/FS.4: Program Change ON/OFF ................................................................................................. Normally the Clavinova will respond to MIDI program change numbers received from an exter­
nal keyboard or other MIDI device, causing the correspondingly numbered voice to be selected on
the corresponding channel (the keyboard voice does not change). The Clavinova will normally also
send a MIDI program change number whenever one of its voices is selected, causing the correspond­
ingly numbered voice or program to be selected on the external MIDI device if the device is set up to
receive and respond to MIDI program change numbers.
This function makes it possible to cancel program change number reception and transmission so
that voices can be selected on the Clavinova without affecting the external MIDI device,
Use the [-/NO] and [+/YES] buttons to tum program change transmission and reception "On" or
"OFF",
Press the [-/NO] and [+iYES] buttons simultaneously to recall the default setting "On".

The Function Mode
IdJ F7.5/FB.5: Control Change ON/OFF ........................................................................................ Normally the Clavinova will respond to MIDI control change data received from an external MIDI device or keyboard, causing the voice on the corresponding channel to be affected by pedal and other "control" settings received from the controlling device (the key­
board voice is not affected). The Clavinova also transmits MIDI control change information
when one of its pedals or other appropriate controls are operated.
This function makes it possible to cancel control change data reception and transmission so
that, for example, the Clavinova pedals and other controls can be operated without affecting
an external MIDI device.
Use the [-/NO] and [+/YES] buttons to tum control change transmission and reception "On" or "OFF". Press the [-iNO] and [+/YES] buttons simultaneously to recall the default setting "On". tlil
NOTE
1 • For information on control changes that can be used with the Clavinova, refer to the MIDI Data Format on page 43. D
F7.6/FB.6: MIDI Transmit Transpose .......................................................................................
This function allows the MIDI note data transmitted by the Clavinova to be transposed up
or down in semitone increments by up to plus or minus 12 semitones. The pitch of the
Clavinova itself is not affected.
Use the [-/NO] and [+/YES] buttons to set the desired amount of MIDI transmit transposi­
tion. The range is from "-12" (down one octave) through "0" (no transposition) to "12" (up
one octave).
Press the [-!NO] and [+/YES] buttons simultaneously to recall the default setting "0".
D
F7.7/FB.7: Panel/Status Transmit ............................................................................................... This function causes all the current Clavinova panel settings (selected voice, etc.) to be
transmitted via the MIDI OUT terminal. This is particularly useful if you will be recording
performances to a MIDI sequence recorder such as the Yamaha MIDI Data Filer MDF3 which
. will be used to control the Clavinova on playback. By transmitting the Clavinova panel set­
tings and recording them on the MIDI sequence recorder prior to the actual performance data, the Clavinova will be automatically restored to the same settings when the performance is played back. Press the [+/YES] button to transmit the panel/status data. "E Ii d" will appear on the LED
display when the data has been successfully transmitted.

Factory Preset Recall
.All dual mode, split mode, reverb, effect, touch sensitivity, tuning
settings, and the settings affected by the Backup Functions can be
restored to their original factory preset values by holding the C7 key
(rightmost key on the keyboard) while turning the [POWER] switch
ON. This also erases all recorder data, and sets all Backup on/off
settings (F8: CLP-840/820/820S, F9: CLP-880/860) to "OFF".
~ NOTE
I . The factory setting list is found on page 42.
Troubleshooting
If you encounter what appears to be a malfunction, please check the following points before assuming
that your Clavinova is faulty.
1. No Sound When the Power is Turned ON
Is the AC plug properly connected to the Clavinova
and an AC wall outlet? Check the AC connection
carefully. Is the MASTER VOLUME control turned
up to a reasonable listening level?
Also make sure that a pair of headphones is not
plugged into the PHONES jack, and that the Local
Control (page 35) is ON.
2. The Damper Pedal Doesn't Work
If the damper pedal doesn't work, or notes are
sustained even when the pedal is not pressed, make
sure that the pedal cord is properly plugged into the
main unit (page 66: CLP-820S, page 60: CLP-860/
840/820, page 52: CLP-880).
3. The Clavinova Reproduces Radio or TV
Sound
!a Ii
I
I
This can occur if there is a high-power transmitter in
your vicinity. Contact your Yamaha dealer.
4. Intermittent Static Noise
This is usually due to turning ON or OFF a house­
hold appliance or other electronic equipment which
is fed by the same AC mains line as your Clavinova.
5. Interference Appears On Radio or TV Sets
Located Near the Clavinova
The Clavinova contains digital circuitry which can
generate radio-frequency noise. The solution is to
move the Clavinova further away from the affected
equipment, or vice versa.
6. Distorted Sound When the Clavinova is
Connected to An External Amplifier/Speaker
System
If the Clavinova is connected to a stereo system or
instrument amplifier and the sound is distorted,
reduce the volume of the external equipment to a
level at which the distortion ceases. • If "Sc n" appears on the display an internal malfunction has occurred. In this case, contact your
Yamaha dealer.
