PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep this manual 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:
Power supply/AC power adaptor
Water warning
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required
voltage is printed on the name plate of the instrument.
• Use the specified adaptor (PA-3B, PA-3C or an equivalent recommended by
Yamaha) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument
or overheating.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may
have accumulated on it.
• 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

Basic Operation and Displays
7
Setting Up
Be sure to do the following operations BEFORE turning on the power.
Power Requirements
Although the instrument will run either from an optional AC adaptor or batteries, Yamaha recommends use of an
AC adaptor whenever possible. An AC adaptor is more environmentally friendly than batteries and does not
deplete resources.
■ Using an AC Power Adaptor
q Make sure that the power of the instrument is off
(the backlit display is off).
WARNING
• Use ONLY a Yamaha PA-3B or PA-3C AC Power Adaptor (or other adaptor specifically recommended by
Yamaha) to power your instrument from the AC mains.
The use of other adaptors may result in irreparable
damage to both the adaptor and the instrument.
w Connect the AC adaptor (PA-3B, PA-3C or other
adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha) to
the power supply jack.
e Plug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.
CAUTION
• Unplug the AC Power Adaptor when not using the
instrument, or during electrical storms.
w
e
PA-3B or
PA-3C
AC outlet
■ Using Batteries
q Open the battery compartment cover located on the
instrument’s bottom panel.
w Insert the six new alkaline batteries, being careful
to follow the polarity markings on the side of the
compartment.
e Replace the compartment cover, making sure that it
locks firmly in place.
CAUTION
• Never connect or disconnect the AC power adaptor when
the batteries are installed in the instrument and the power
is on. Doing so will turn the power off, possibly resulting
in loss of the data being transferred and the data currently in the transfer destination during transferring or
recording a data.
8
For battery operation the instrument requires six 1.5V
“AA” size, LR6 or equivalent batteries. (Alkaline batteries are recommended.) When battery power becomes
too low for proper operation, the volume may be
reduced, the sound may be distorted, and other problems may occur. When this happens, make sure to
replace all batteries, following the precautions listed
below.
If necessary, also make sure to save all important User
data (see page 33), since custom panel settings are
lost when the batteries are removed.
CAUTION
• Use alkaline batteries for this instrument. Other types of
batteries (including rechargeable batteries) may have
sudden drops of power when battery power becomes low,
possibly resulting in loss of data in the flash memory.
• Make sure to install the batteries with the proper orientation, maintaining the correct polarity (as shown). Incorrect battery installation may result in heat, fire and/or
leaking of corrosive chemicals.
• When the batteries run down, replace them with a complete set of six new batteries. NEVER mix old and new
batteries. Do not use different kinds of batteries (e.g.
alkaline and manganese) at the same time.
• If the instrument is not to be in use for a long time,
remove the batteries from it, in order to prevent possible
fluid leakage from the battery.
• Please use the power adaptor when transferring data to
flash memory. Batteries (including rechargeable types)
can be drained rapidly by this type of operation. If the batteries do become drained during a data transfer, both the
data being transferred and the data currently in the transfer destination will be lost.
PSR-A300 Owner’s Manual

Setting Up
Make all necessary connections BEFORE turning the power on.
Using the MIDI Terminals
Connecting headphones (PHONES/OUTPUT Jack)
The PSR-A300 speakers are automatically shut off
when a plug is inserted into this jack. The PHONES/
OUTPUT jack also functions as an external output.
You can connect the PHONES/OUTPUT jack to a
keyboard amplifier, stereo system, mixer, tape
recorder, or other line-level audio device to send the
instrument’s output signal to that device.
MIDI instrument
The instrument also features MIDI terminals, allowing you to interface the instrument with other MIDI
instruments or computers. (For more information, see
page 62.)
NOTE
WARNING
• Avoid listening with the headphones at high volume for
long periods of time; doing so may not only result in ear
fatigue, it may be damaging to your hearing.
• MIDI cables (sold separately) must be used for connecting to
MIDI devices. They can be bought at music stores, etc.
Turn on the power
CAUTION
• To prevent damage to the speakers, set the volume of the
external devices at the minimum setting and turn power
off the devices before connecting them. Failure to
observe these precautions may result in electric shock or
equipment damage. Also, be sure to set the volumes of all
devices at their minimum levels and gradually raise the
volume controls while playing the instrument to set the
desired listening level.
Turn down the volume by turning the [MASTER
VOLUME] control to the left and press the
[STANDBY/ON] switch to turn on the power. Pressing the switch again turns the power off.
Connecting a footswitch (SUSTAIN Jack)
Backup data in the flash memory (page 33) is loaded
to the instrument when the power is turned on. If no
backup data exists on flash memory, all instrument
settings are restored to the initial factory defaults
when the power is turned on.
The sustain function lets you produce a natural sustain
as you play by pressing an optional footswitch. Plug
the Yamaha FC4 or FC5 footswitch into this jack and
use it to switch sustain on and off.
NOTE
• Make sure that the footswitch plug is properly connected to
the SUSTAIN jack before turning on the power.
• Do not press the footswitch while turning the power on. Doing
this changes the recognized polarity of the footswitch, resulting in reversed footswitch operation.
CAUTION
• When using a power adaptor, even when the power is off,
a small amount of electricity is still being consumed by
the instrument. When you are not using the instrument for
a long time, make sure to unplug the AC power adaptor
from the wall AC outlet, and/or remove the batteries from
the instrument.
CAUTION
• Never attempt to turn the power off when a “Writing!”
message is shown in the display. Doing so can damage
the flash memory and result in a loss of data.

Adding pitch variations with the Pitch Bend Wheel
The [PITCH BEND] wheel can be used to add smooth pitch variations to notes you play on the
keyboard.
Roll the wheel upward to raise the pitch, or downward to lower the pitch. When you release the

Adjust the pitch bend range
The range of the pitch bend wheel can be adjusted in semitone increments. When the pitch bend
range is set to “2,” for example, rolling the wheel all the way up will produce a maximum pitch rise
of 2 semitones (one whole tone), and rolling it all the way down will produce a maximum pitch drop
of the same amount (2 semitones or one whole tone). With the highest possible pitch bend range
setting of “12,” the pitch bend range becomes +/-1 octave.

■ About chords
Playing two or more notes together simultaneously creates a “chord.”
Playing a note together with two other notes spaced three notes (steps) apart—such as the
notes C, E and G—creates a harmonious sound. Chords like these are called “triads” and
they play an important role in most music.
3rd
Root
3rd
Taking the chord above as an example, the lowest note of this triad is called the “root note.” This is the central note
sound, and it supports or anchors the rest of the notes chord.
You’ll notice that the middle note of the chord above (E) is the third step in the succession of scale notes—C, D, then E.
There are two types of “thirds” in chords: major thirds and minor thirds.
Major third—four half steps from the root
Minor third—three half steps from the root
We’ll also alter the top note of our original chord and make three additional chords, as shown below. (The captions indicate the intervals between each of the notes.)
◆ Major chord

◆ Augmented chord

The basic characteristics of the chord sound are same, no matter if we change the order of the notes from bottom to top,
or if we add other same name notes in different octaves. Beautiful sounding harmonies can be built in this manner, and
emotional music can be created by playing different chords one after the other according to commonly accepted rules.
Harmony determines the nature of chords, and music is created based on harmony.
● Chord names
From the chord name, you can tell at a glance what type of chord it is and which notes
make up the chord. Understanding the basic structure of chords is very useful—once
you’re familiar with this, you’ll be quickly and easily play chords by looking at the
names that appear above the notation.

About MIDI
The instrument features a MIDI terminals that can be connected to other MIDI instruments and devices for expanded musical functionality.
What is MIDI?
MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a world-standard interface
for communication between electronic musical instruments and music
devices. When MIDI-equipped instruments are connected via a MIDI
cable, it becomes possible to transfer performance and setting data between
them for significantly enhanced performance and production potential.
CAUTION
• Connect the PSR-A300 to external equipment only after turning off power for
all devices. Then, turn on the power, first to the PSR-A300, then to the connected external equipment.
What You Can Do With MIDI
• Transferring performance and setting data between the PSR-A300 and
MIDI-equipped instruments or computers. (page 63)

■ MIDI settings
These settings should be made when transmitting/receiving performance
data to a connected MIDI device or computer.
Local Settings
Local Control determines whether or not notes played on the instrument
are sounded by its internal tone generator system; the internal tone generator is active when local control is on, and inactive when local control is off.
On ........ This is the normal setting in which notes played on the instrument’s keyboard are sounded by the internal tone generator
system. Data received via the instrument’s MIDI terminal
will also be played by the internal tone generator.
Off ....... With this setting the instrument itself produces no sound
(keyboard performance, Harmony, or Style playback), but the
performance data is transmitted via the MIDI terminal. Data
received via the instrument’s MIDI terminal will also be
played by the internal tone generator.
You can set the Local Control in the Function Settings (page 60).
NOTE
• If you can’t get any sound
out of the instrument, Local
Control may be the most
likely cause. Playing the
keyboard results in no
sound when Local is set to
OFF.

Transferring data from a computer
You can transmit Song or Style File Format (SFF) files from
your computer to your PSR-A300’s Flash Memory.
For details about how to transmit the data using the Musicsoft Downloader application, refer to the Online help topic
“Transferring Data Between the Computer and Instrument
(for unprotected data)” of the Musicsoft Downloader.
● Data that can be loaded to the PSR-A300 from
a computer

NOTE
• The Musicsoft Downloader application may not
be able to access the instrument in the following cases:
• During Demo playbaack
• During Style playback
• During Song playback
• During recording
CAUTION
• Use the power adaptor when transferring
data. The data can be corrupted if the batteries fail during the transfer.
• Never turn the power off and never plug/
unplug the AC power adaptor during data
transmission. Not only will the data fail to
be transferred and saved, but operation of
the flash memory may become unstable
and its contents may disappear completely
when the power is turned on or off.
NOTE
• Close the window to exit from the Musicsoft
Downloader and re-enable control of the instrument.
Transferring a user file from the PSR-A300 to a computer
You can transfer backup data (page 33), including the five
User Songs stored to the instrument, to a computer as a “user
file” by using Musicsoft Downloader. For details about how
to transmit Song data using the Musicsoft Downloader application, refer to the Online help topic “Transferring Data
Between the Computer and Instrument (for unprotected
data)” in the application.
● Data that can be transferred to a computer
from the PSR-A300
• User file (05PK.USR: backup data containing five
User Songs)
• Songs transferred from a computer
• Styles transferred from a computer
NOTE
• Preset Song data cannot be transmitted from
the PSR-A300.
• Do not rename the user file on the computer. If
you do so, it will not be recognized when transferred to the instrument.
CAUTION
• The backup data, including the five User
Songs is transmitted/received as a single
file. As a result, all backup data (including
the five Songs) will be overwritten every
time you transmit or receive. Keep this in
mind when transferring data.
● Erasing Transferred Song Data from the PSR-A300 Memory
To erase all Songs or Styles transferred from the computer, use “flash clear” function on page 33.
To erase specific Songs and Styles transferred from the computer, use the Delete function on Musicsoft
Downloader.
● Using Transferred Songs for Lessons
In order to use Songs (only SMF format 0) transferred from a computer for lessons it is necessary to specify which
channels are to be played back as the right-hand and left-hand parts. Refer to the “Lesson Track (R)” or “Lesson
Track (L)” in the Function Setting List on page 61. The procedure for setting the “guide track” is as follows:
Select a transferred Song you want to use for lessons. Press the [FUNCTION] button a number of times until
the “R-Part” or “L-Part” appears in the display, and then use the number buttons [0]-[9], [+], [-] to select the
channel you want to play back as the specified right- or left-hand part.
We recommend that you select channel 1 for the right-hand part and channel 2 for the left-hand part.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
When the instrument is turned on or off, a
popping sound is temporarily produced.
This is normal and indicates that the instrument is receiving electrical
power.
When using a mobile phone, noise is produced.
Using a mobile phone in close proximity to the instrument may produce
interference. To prevent this, turn off the mobile phone or use it further
away from the instrument.
There is no sound even when the keyboard is
played or when a Song or Style is being
played back.
Check that nothing is connected to the PHONES/OUTPUT jack on the
rear panel. When a set of headphones is plugged into this jack, no sound
is output.
Check the Local Control on/off. (See page 63.)
Playing keys in the right hand area of the
keyboard does not produce any sound.
When using the Dictionary function (page 58), the keys in the right hand
area are used only for entering the chord root and type.
• The volume is too soft.
• The sound quality is poor.
• The rhythm stops unexpectedly or will not
play.
• The recorded data of the Song, etc. does
not play correctly.
• The LCD display suddenly goes dark, and
all panel settings are reset.
The batteries are low or dead. Replace all six batteries with completely
new ones, or use the optional AC adaptor.
The Style or Song does not play back when
the [START/STOP] button is pressed.
Is External Clock set to ON? Make sure External Clock is set to OFF;
refer to “External Clock Settings” on page 64.
Make sure that the Style Volume (page 55) is set to an appropriate level.
The Style does not sound properly.
Not all of the voices seem to sound, or the
sound seems to be cut off.
The instrument is polyphonic up to a maximum of 32 notes. If the Dual
voice or Split voice is being used and a style or Song is playing back at
the same time, some notes/sounds may be omitted (or “stolen”) from the
accompaniment or Song.
The footswitch (for sustain) seems to produce the opposite effect. For example, pressing the footswitch cuts off the sound and
releasing it sustains the sounds.
The polarity of the footswitch is reversed. Make sure that the footswitch
plug is properly connected to the SUSTAIN jack before turning on the
power.
The sound of the voice changes from note to
note.
This is normal. The AWM tone generation method uses multiple recordings (samples) of an instrument across the range of the keyboard; thus,
the actual sound of the voice may be slightly different from note to note.
The ACMP ON indicator does not appear
when the [ACMP ON/OFF] button is pressed.
Always press the [STYLE] button first when you are going to use any
style-related function.
The harmony doesn’t sound.
The method of sounding the harmony effect (01-26) differs depending on
the selected type. For Types 01-05, turn the Auto Accompaniment on
and play it by pressing a chord in the auto accompaniment section of the
keyboard, then play some keys in the right-hand side to get the harmony
effect. For Types 06-26, turning the Auto Accompaniment on or off has
no effect. However, it is necessary to play two notes simultaneously for
Types 06-12.
The part indications, such as Right, Left and
Both Hands, do not appear—even when
pressing the [R] or [L] buttons for the Lesson.
Make sure that you are not pressing the [R] or [L] buttons while the Song
is playing. If you press one of the part buttons while playing the Song
and before starting the Lesson, these buttons serve to mute the corresponding Song tracks. Stop the Song first, then select the desired part
and start the Lesson.

Is the Split Point set at an appropriate key for the cords you are playing?
Set the Split Point at an appropriate key (page 48).
Is the “ACMP ON” indicator showing in the display? If it is not showing
press the [ACMP ON/OFF] button so that it does show.

Voice List / Voice-Liste / Liste des voix
■ Maximum Polyphony • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
The instrument has 32-note maximum polyphony. This means that
it can play a maximum of up to 32 notes at once, regardless of
what functions are used. Auto accompaniment uses a number of
the available notes, so when auto accompaniment is used the total
number of available notes for playing on the keyboard is correspondingly reduced. The same applies to the Split Voice and Song
functions. If the maximum polyphony is exceeded, earlier played
notes will be cut off and the most recent notes have priority (last
note priority).
■ Maximale Polyphonie • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
Das Instrument verfügt über eine maximale Polyphonie von 32
Noten. Dies bedeutet, daß das Instrument unabhängig von den aktivierten Funktionen maximal 32 Noten gleichzeitig spielen kann.
Eine bestimmte Anzahl der verfügbaren Noten wird von der automatischen Begleitung belegt; bei deren Einsatz verringert sich somit
die Anzahl der für das Spiel auf der Klaviatur verfügbaren Noten
entsprechend. Das Gleiche gilt für Split Voices und Song-Funktion.
Wenn die maximale Polyphonie überschritten wird, werden die am
frühesten gespielten Noten ausgeschaltet und die zuletzt gespielten
Noten haben Vorrang (Last Note Priority).
■ Polyphonie maximale • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
205
Le PSR-A300 dispose d’une polyphonie maximale de 32 notes.
Cela signifie que l’instrument peut reproduire un nombre maximal
de 32 voix à la fois, indépendamment des fonctions utilisées.
L’accompagnement automatique fait appel à un certain nombre de
notes disponibles. Il s’ensuit que lorsque l’accompagnement automatique est utilisé, le nombre total de notes disponibles pour l’interprétation au clavier est réduit en conséquence. Cela s’applique aussi
aux fonctions Split Voice (Voix partagées) et Song (Morceau). Lorsque la polyphonie maximale est dépassée, les notes jouées en premier ne produisent aucun son ; seules les notes interprétées en
dernier sont audibles (priorité à la dernière note).
NOTE
• The Voice List includes MIDI program
change numbers for each voice. Use these
program change numbers when playing the
instrument via MIDI from an external device.
• Program Numbers 001 to 128 directly relate
to MIDI Program Change Numbers 000 to
127. That is, Program Numbers and Program
Change Numbers differ by a value of 1.
Remember to take this into consideration.
• Some voices may sound continuously or
have a long decay after the notes have been
released while the sustain pedal (footswitch)
is held.
HINWEIS
• In der Voice-Liste sind für jede Voice MIDIProgrammwechselnummern enthalten. Verwenden Sie diese Programmwechselnummern, wenn Sie das Instrument über MIDI
von einem externen Gerät aus ansteuern.
• Die Programmnummern 001 bis 128 hängen
direkt mit den MIDI-Programmwechsel-Nummern 000 bis 127 zusammen. Das bedeutet:
Programmnummern und ProgrammwechselNummern unterscheiden sich mit einem
Wert von 1. Denken Sie bei diesen Überlegungen daran.
• Solange der Sustain-Fußschalter gedrückt
ist, ertönen einige Voices nach dem Loslassen der Taste eventuell kontinuierlich oder
mit einer langen Abklingzeit (Decay).
NOTE
• La liste des voix comporte des numéros de
changement de programme MIDI pour chaque voix. Utilisez ces derniers pour commander le PSR-A300 à partir d’un
périphérique MIDI.
• Les numéros de programme 001 à 128 correspondent aux numéros de changement de
programme MIDI 000 à 127. Cela signifie
que les numéros de programme et les numéros de changement de programme sont
décalés de 1. N’oubliez pas de tenir compte
de cet écart.
• Certaines voix peuvent avoir une sonorité
prolongée ou un long déclin après le relâchement des touches, et ceci pendant la
durée de maintien de la pédale de sustain
(sélecteur au pied).

Drum Kit & Oriental Perussion Kit List / Drum-Kits und orientalische Percussion• “
” indicates that the drum sound is the same as “Standard Kit 1”.
• Each percussion voice uses one note.
• The MIDI Note # and Note are actually one octave lower than keyboard Note # and Note. For example, in “109: Standard Kit 1”, the “Seq
Click H” (Note# 36/Note C1) corresponds to (Note# 24/Note C0).
• Key Off: Keys marked “O” stop sounding the instant they are released.
• Voices with the same Alternate Note Number (*1 … 4) cannot be
played simultaneously. (They are designed to be played alternately
with each other.)

• „
“ bedeutet, dass der Schlagzeugklang gleich „Standard Kit 1“ ist.
• Jede Perkussionsnote belegt eine Note.
• Die MIDI-Note # und Note sind in Wirklichkeit eine Octave tiefer als
hier aufgeführt. Beispiel: In „109: Standard Kit 1“ entspricht die „Seq
Click H“ (Note# 36/Note C1) der Note (Note# 24/Note C0).
• Key Off: Mit „O“ bezeichnete Tasten hören sofort auf zu klingen,
sobald sie losgelassen werden.
• Stimmen mit derselben Alternate Note Number (*1 … 4) können nicht
gleichzeitig gespielt werden. (Diese Stimmen sind dazu gedacht,
wechselweise gespielt zu werden.)
Kits-Liste / Liste des kits de batterie et des kits de percussions orientales
• «
» indique que les sonorités de percussion sont identiques à
celles de « Standard Kit 1 ».
• Chaque voix de percussion utilise une note unique.
• Le numéro de note MIDI (Note #) et la note MIDI se situent en réalité à
une octave inférieure à celle qui est indiquée dans la liste. Par exemple, dans « 109 : Standard Kit 1 », « Seq Click H » (Note# 36/Note C1)
correspond à (Note# 24/Note C0).
• Key Off : pour les touches signalées par « O », l’émission de sons
s’arrête instantanément aussitôt que les touches sont relâchées.
• Les voix portant un même numéro de note alternative (*1 … 4) ne
peuvent pas être jouées simultanément. (Elles sont en effet conçues
pour être interprétées en alternance).
