Voices – Playing the Keyboard –
Harmony Types
These types apply the harmony effect to notes played in the right-hand section of the keyboard according to the chord specified in the left-hand section
of the keyboard. (Note that the “1+5” and “Octave” settings are not affected
by the chord.)
Multi Assign Type
This type applies a special effect to chords played in the right-hand section
of the keyboard.
Echo Types
These types apply echo effects to notes played in the right-hand section of
the keyboard in time with the currently set tempo.
■ Harmony Types
When one of the Harmony Types is selected, the Harmony effect is applied to the note played in the righthand section of the keyboard according to the type selected above and the chord specified in the chord
section of the keyboard shown below.

■ Multi Assign Type
The Multi Assign effect automatically assigns notes played simultaneously on the right-hand section of the
keyboard to separate parts (Voices). Both of the keyboard part [RIGHT 1] and [RIGHT 2] should be turn
on when using the Multi Assign effect. The Right 1 and Right 2 Voices are alternately assigned to the notes
in the order you play.

PSR-S910/S710 Reference Manual
■ Echo Types
When one of the Echo Types is selected, the corresponding effect (echo, tremolo, trill) is applied to the
note played in the right-hand section of the keyboard in time with the currently set tempo, regardless of the
[ACMP] and the LEFT part on/off status. Keep in mind that Trill works when you hold down two notes on
the keyboard simultaneously (last two notes if more than two notes are held), and it plays those notes
alternately.
Use the [4 ▲▼]–[8 ▲▼] buttons to select various Harmony/Echo settings.
The available settings differ depending on the Harmony/Echo type.
1
[4 ▲▼]
VOLUME
This parameter is available for all types with the exception of “Multi
Assign.” It determines the level of the harmony/echo notes generated by
the Harmony/Echo effect.
[5 ▲▼]
SPEED
This parameter is only available when Echo, Tremolo, or Trill is selected
in Type above. It determines the speed of the Echo, Tremolo, and Trill
effects.
[6 ▲▼]
ASSIGN
This parameter is available for all types with the exception of “Multi
Assign.” This lets you determine the keyboard part via which the harmony/echo notes will be sounded.
[7 ▲▼]
CHORD NOTE
ONLY
This parameter is available when one of the Harmony Types is selected.
When this is set to “ON,” the Harmony effect is applied only to the note
(played in the right-hand section of the keyboard) that belongs to a chord
played in the chord section of the keyboard.
[8 ▲▼]
TOUCH LIMIT
This parameter is available for all types with the exception of “Multi
Assign.” It determines the lowest velocity value at which the harmony
note will sound. This allows you to selectively apply the harmony by your
playing strength, letting you create harmony accents in the melody. The
harmony effect is applied when you play the key strongly (above the set
value).

[FUNCTION] → [A] MASTER TUNE/SCALE TUNE → TAB [E][F] SCALE TUNE
2
Use the [A]/[B] buttons to select the desired scale.
The tuning of each note for the currently selected scale is shown.
■ Preset Scale types
EQUAL
8
The pitch range of each octave is divided equally into twelve parts, with each
half-step evenly spaced in pitch. This is the most commonly used tuning in
music today.
PURE MAJOR, PURE
MINOR
These tunings preserve the pure mathematical intervals of each scale, especially for triad chords (root, third, fifth). You can hear this best in actual vocal
harmonies—such as choirs and a cappella singing.
PYTHAGOREAN
This scale was devised by the famous Greek philosopher and is created from a
series of perfect fifths, which are collapsed into a single octave. The 3rd in this
tuning are slightly unstable, but the 4th and 5th are beautiful and suitable for
some leads.
MEAN-TONE
This scale was created as an improvement on the Pythagorean scale, by making
the major third interval more “in tune.” It was especially popular from the 16th
century to the 18th century. Handel, among others, used this scale.
WERCKMEISTER,
KIRNBERGER
This composite scale combines the Werckmeister and Kirnberger systems,
which were themselves improvements on the mean-tone and Pythagorean
scales. The main feature of this scale is that each key has its own unique character. The scale was used extensively during the time of Bach and Beethoven,
and even now it is often used when performing period music on the harpsichord.
ARABIC1, ARABIC2
Use these tunings when playing Arabic music.
PSR-S910/S710 Reference Manual

Selecting the Chord Fingering Type
Style playback can be controlled by the chords you play in the chord section of the keyboard. There are seven
types of fingering.

2
Press the [1 ▲▼]–[3 ▲▼] buttons to select a fingering.
For information on each fingering type, see page 17.
Chord Tutor
If you know the name of a chord but don’t know how to play, you can have the instrument show you the
notes to play. This is the Chord Tutor function.
On the CHORD FINGERING display, specify the Chord Root and Chord Type by using the [6 ▲▼]–[8
▲▼] button. The notes you need to play are shown in the display.
NOTE Depending on the chord, some notes may be omitted.

PSR-S910/S710 Reference Manual
Chord Fingering Types
Makes it simple to produce orchestrated accompaniment using major, seventh,
minor and minor-seventh chords by pressing a minimum number of keys on the
Chord section of the keyboard. This type is available only for Style playback.
The abbreviated chord fingerings described below are used:
C
C7
For a major chord, press
the root key only.
Cm
For a minor chord, simultaneously press the root
key and a black key to its
left.
Cm 7
For a seventh chord,
simultaneously press the
root key and a white key to
its left.
For a minor-seventh
chord, simultaneously
press the root key and both
a white and black key to its
left.
MULTI FINGER
Automatically detects Single Finger or Fingered chord fingerings, so you can
use either type of fingering without having to switch fingering types.
FINGERED
Lets you finger your own chords on the chord section of the keyboard, while
the instrument supplies appropriately orchestrated rhythm, bass, and chord
accompaniment in the selected Style. The Fingered type recognizes the various
chord types which are listed on the Data List available at the Yamaha website
and can be looked up using the Chord Tutor function on page 16.
FINGERED ON BASS
Accepts the same fingerings as Fingered, but the lowest note played in the
Chord section of the keyboard is used as the bass note, allowing you to play
“on bass” chords. (In the Fingered mode, the root of the chord is always used
as the bass note.)
FULL KEYBOARD
Detects chords in the entire key range. Chords are detected in a way similar to
Fingered, even if you split the notes between your left and right hands—for
example, playing a bass note with your left hand and a chord with your right,
or by playing a chord with your left hand and a melody note with your right.
AI FINGERED
Basically the same as Fingered, with the exception that less than three notes
can be played to indicate the chords (based on the previously played chord,
etc.).
AI FULL KEYBOARD
When this advanced fingering type is engaged, the instrument will automatically create appropriate accompaniment while you play just about anything,
anywhere on the keyboard using both hands. You don’t have to worry about
specifying the Style chords. Although the AI Full Keyboard type is designed to
work with many songs, some arrangements may not be suitable for use with
this feature. This type is similar to Full Keyboard, with the exception that less
than three notes can be played to indicate the chords (based on the previously
played chord, etc.). 9th, 11th and 13th chords cannot be played. This type is
available only for Style playback.

STOP ACMP
When [ACMP] is turned on and [SYNC START] is off, you can play
chords in the chord section of the keyboard with the Style stopped, and
still hear the accompaniment chord. In this condition—called “Stop
Accompaniment”—any valid chord fingerings are recognized and the
chord root/type are shown in the display. Here, you can determine
whether the chord played in the chord section will sound or not in the
Stop Accompaniment status.
OFF
The chord played in the chord section will not sound.
STYLE
The chord played in the chord section will sound via the Voices for the
Pad part and the Bass channel of the selected Style.
FIXED
The chord played in the chord section will sound via the specified Voice,
regardless of the selected Style.
NOTE When the selected Style contains MegaVoices, unexpected sounds may result when this is set to
“STYLE.”
NOTE When you record a song, the chord detected by playing the Stop Accompaniment can be recorded
regardless of the setting here. Please note that both the Voice that is sounded and the chord data
will be recorded when set to “STYLE,” and only the chord data will be recorded when set to “OFF”
or “FIXED.”

cancels the Synchro Stop function if you hold a chord for longer than the
time set here. This conveniently resets Style playback control to normal,
letting you release the keys and still have the Style play. In other words, if
you release the keys sooner than the time set here, the Synchro Stop function works.

Creating/Editing Styles (Style Creator)
Sections
Channels
Styles are made up of fifteen different sections (Intro, Main, Ending, etc.) and each section has eight separate
channels.
With the Style Creator feature, you can create a Style by separately recording the channels, or by importing
pattern data from other existing Styles. You can use one of the three different methods described below to
create a Style. The created Style can also be edited.

Styles – Playing Rhythm and Accompaniment –
• Realtime Recording
This method lets you record the Style by simply playing the keyboard. See
page 23.
• Step Recording
This method lets you to enter each note individually. See page 26.
• Style Assembly
This method lets you create a composite Style by combining various patterns
from the internal preset Styles or Styles you have already created. See page 26.
Call up the operation display.
[FUNCTION] → [F] DIGITAL REC MENU → [B] STYLE CREATOR
NOTE The Style files created on the PSR-S910/S710 can only be played back on instruments which are compatible with SFF GE.
There are six Pages (tabs) in the Style Creator display.

• BASIC
Creates the basic settings of the Style. You can also record your performance in realtime
to create a new Style (Realtime Recording). See page 23.
• ASSEMBLY
Mixes the various parts (channels) from preset Styles or already created Style to create a
new Style. See page 26.
• GROOVE

• EDIT
Lets you enter notes one by one to create your Style (Step Recording). See page 26.
PSR-S910/S710 Reference Manual
Realtime Recording
In the BASIC Page, you can create a single Style by recording the individual channels one-by-one, using
realtime recording.
Realtime Recording Characteristics—Loop Recording and Overdub Recording
• Loop Recording
Style playback repeats the rhythm patterns of several measures in a “loop,” and Style recording is also
done using loops. For example, if you start recording with a two-measure MAIN section, the two
measures are repeatedly recorded. Notes that you record will play back from the next repetition (loop),
letting you record while hearing previously recorded material.
• Overdub Recording
This method records new material to a channel already containing recorded data, without deleting the
original data. In Style recording, the recorded data is not deleted, except when using functions such as
Rhythm Clear (page 25) and Delete (page 24).
For example, if you start recording with a two-measure MAIN section, the two measures are repeated
many times. Notes that you record will play back from the next repetition, letting you overdub new
material to the loop while hearing previously recorded material.
When creating a Style based on an existing internal Style, overdub recording is applied only to the
rhythm channels. For all other channels (except rhythm), you need to delete the original data before
recording.
When you want to create a Style based on an existing Style, select the desired Style
to serve as the basis for recording/editing before call up the Style Creator display.

Rules when recording non-rhythm channels
• Use only the CM7 scale tones when recording the BASS and PHRASE channels (i.e., C, D, E, G, A,
and B).
• Use only the chord tones when recording the CHORD and PAD channels (i.e., C, E, G, and B).
C R C
C R C
C = Chord note
C, R = Recommended note
Using the data recorded here, the auto accompaniment (Style playback) is appropriately converted
depending on the chord changes you make during your performance. The chord which forms the basis for
this note conversion is called the Source Chord, and is set by default to CM7 (as in the example
illustration above).
You can change the Source Chord (its root and type) from the PARAMETER display on page 31. Keep in
mind that when you change the Source Chord from the default CM7 to another chord, the chord notes
and recommended notes will also change. For details on chord notes and recommended notes, see
page 32.
NOTE For the INTRO and ENDING sections, any appropriate chord or chord progression can be used.

Step Recording
In the EDIT Page, you can record notes with absolutely precise timing. This Step Recording procedure is
essentially the same as that for Song Recording (page 45) with the exception of the points listed below:
• In the Song Creator, the End Mark position can be changed freely; in the Style Creator, it cannot be changed.
This is because the length of the Style is automatically fixed, depending on the selected section. For example,
if you create a Style based on a section of four measures length, the End Mark position is automatically set to
the end of the fourth measure, and cannot be changed in the Step Recording display.
• Recording channels can be changed in the Song Creator 1-16 tab display; however, they cannot be changed
in the Style Creator. Select the recording channel in the BASIC tab display.
• In the Style Creator, the channel data can be entered and System Exclusive data can be edited (delete, copy,
or move). You can switch between the two by pressing the [F] button. However, Chord, Lyrics, and System
Exclusive data cannot be entered.

This lets you add swing to the music or change the “feel” of the beat by making subtle shifts in the timing
(clock) of the Style. The Groove settings are applied to all channels of the selected Style.
28
[1 ▲▼]/
[2 ▲▼]
ORIGINAL
BEAT
Specifies the beats to which Groove timing is to be applied. In other
words, if “8 Beat” is selected, Groove timing is applied to the 8th notes; if
“12 Beat” is selected, Groove timing is applied to 8th-note triplets.
[3 ▲▼]/
[4 ▲▼]
BEAT CONVERTER
Actually changes the timing of the beats (specified in the ORIGINAL
BEAT parameter above) to the selected value. For example, when ORIGINAL BEAT is set to “8 Beat” and BEAT CONVERTER is set to “12,” all
8th notes in the section are shifted to 8th-note triplet timing. The “16A”
and “16B” Beat Converter which appear when ORIGINAL BEAT is set
to “12 Beat” are variations on a basic 16th-note setting.
[5 ▲▼]/
[6 ▲▼]
SWING
Produces a “swing” feel by shifting the timing of the back beats, depending on the ORIGINAL BEAT parameter above. For example, if the specified ORIGINAL BEAT value is “8 Beat”, the Swing parameter will
selectively delay the 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th beats of each measure to create
a swing feel. The settings “A” through “E” produce different degrees of
swing, with “A” being the most subtle and “E” being the most pronounced.
[7 ▲▼]/
[8 ▲▼]
FINE
Selects a variety of Groove “templates” to be applied to the selected section. The “PUSH” settings cause certain beats to be played early, while
“HEAVY” settings delay the timing of certain beats. The numbered settings (2, 3, 4, 5) determine which beats are to be affected. All beats up to
the specified beat—but not including the first beat—will be played early
or delayed (for example, the 2nd and 3rd beats, if “3” is selected). In all
cases, “A” types produce minimum effect, “B” types produce medium
effect, and “C” types produce maximum effect.

Making Style File Format Settings
The Style File Format (SFF) combines all of Yamaha’s auto accompaniment (Style playback) know-how into
a single unified format. By using the Style Creator, you can take advantage of the power of the SFF format
and freely create your own Styles.
The chart shown below indicates the process by which the Style is played back. (This does not apply to the
rhythm track.) These parameters can be set via the Style Creator feature, in the PARAMETER Page.
Source Pattern settings—SOURCE (PLAY) ROOT/CHORD (page 32)
The Style data is appropriately converted depending on chord changes you make during your
performance. You can create the “Source Pattern” with the Style Creator, which determines how the
played chord will be converted. Here the “Source Chord” (page 32) can be set, allowing you to record
accompaniment channels.
2
Chord change via the chord section of the keyboard.
Styles – Playing Rhythm and Accompaniment –
Note Transposition settings—NTR and NTT (page 33)
This parameter group features two parameters that determine how the notes of the Source Pattern are to
be converted in response to chord changes.
Other settings—HIGH KEY, NOTE LIMIT and RTR (page 34)
Using the parameters of this group, you can fine-tune how Style playback responds to the chords you
play. For example, the Note Limit parameter allows you to have the Voices of the Style sound as realistic
as possible by shifting the pitch to an authentic range—ensuring that no notes sound outside the natural
range of the actual instrument (e.g., high bass sounds or low piccolo sounds).
Output
The PSR-S910/S710’s Styles are compatible with SFF GE—an enhanced format of the original SFF with
especially rich, expressive guitar parts.
NOTE The Style files created on the PSR-S910/S710 can only be played back on instruments which are compatible with SFF GE.

1 SOURCE (PLAY) ROOT/CHORD
These settings determine the original key of the source pattern (i.e., the key used when recording the
pattern). The default setting of CM7 (with a Source Root of “C” and a Chord Type of “M7”), is
automatically selected whenever the preset data is deleted prior to recording a new Style, regardless of the
Source Root and Chord included in the preset data. When you change Source Root/Chord from the default
CM7 to another chord, the chord notes and recommended notes will also change, depending on the newly
selected chord type.

The channel for which this is set to ON will be played back by the bass
root note, when the on-bass chord is recognized by the instrument. When
NTR is set to GUITAR and this parameter is set to ON, only the note
which is assigned to bass will be played back by the bass root note.
NTR (Note Transposition Rule)
ROOT FIXED
GUITAR
When the root note is transposed, the interval
between notes is maintained. For example, the
notes C3, E3 and G3 in the key of C become F3,
A3 and C4 when they are transposed to F. Use this
setting for channels that contain melody lines.
The note is kept as close as possible to the previous note range. For example, the notes C3, E3 and
G3 in the key of C become C3, F3 and A3 when
they are transposed to F. Use this setting for channels that contain chord parts.

This is exclusively for transposing guitar accompaniment. Notes are transposed to approximate the chords played with natural guitar fingering.
NTT (Note Transposition Table)
When NTR is set to ROOT TRANS or ROOT FIXED
BYPASS
When NTR is set to ROOT FIXED, the transposition table used does not do
any note conversion. When NTR is set to ROOT TRANS, the table used
only converts the notes by maintaining the pitch relationship between notes.
MELODY
Suitable for melody line transposition. Use this for melody channels such
as Phrase 1 and Phrase 2.
CHORD
Suitable for chordal parts transposition. Use this for the Chord 1 and Chord
2 channels, especially when they contain piano or guitar-like chordal parts.
MELODIC MINOR
When the played chord changes from a major to a minor chord, this table
lowers the third interval in the scale by a semitone. When the chord changes
from a minor to a major chord, the minor third interval is raised by a
semitone. Other notes are not changed. Use this for melody channels of Sections which respond only to major/minor chords, such as Intros and Endings.
MELODIC MINOR 5th
In addition to the Melodic Minor transposition above, augmented and
diminished chords affect the 5th note of the Source Pattern.
HARMONIC MINOR
When the played chord changes from a major to a minor chord, this table
lowers the third and sixth intervals in the scale by a semitone. When the
chord changes from a minor to a major chord, the minor third and flatted
sixth intervals are raised by a semitone. Other notes are not changed. Use
this for chord channels of Sections which respond only to major/minor
chords, such as Intros and Endings.

1 QUANTIZE
The Quantize function allows you to align the timing of all the notes in a channel. For example, if you
record the musical phrase shown at right, you may not play it with absolute precision, and your
performance may have been slightly ahead of or behind the precise timing. Quantize is a convenient way
of correcting for this.
[2 ▲▼]/
[3 ▲▼]
CHANNEL
Determines which MIDI channel in the Song data is to be quantized.
[4 ▲▼]–
[6 ▲▼]
SIZE
Selects the quantize size (resolution). For optimum results, you should set
the Quantize size to the shortest note value in the channel. For example, if
eighth notes are the shortest in the channel, you should use eighth note as
the Quantize size.

Songs – Recording Your Performances and Creating Songs –
Settings:
The three Quantize settings marked with asterisks (*) are exceptionally
convenient, since they allow you to quantize two different note values at
the same time. For example, when the straight eighth notes and eighth
notes triplet are contained in the same channel, if you quantize by the
straight eighth notes, all notes in the channel are quantized to straight
eighth notes—completely eliminating any triplet feel. However, if you
use the eighth note + eighth note triplet setting, both the straight and triplet notes will be quantized correctly.
[7 ▲▼]/
[8 ▲▼]
STRENGTH
Determines how strongly the notes will be quantized. A setting of 100%
produces exact timing. If a value less than 100% is selected, notes will be
moved toward the specified quantization beats according to the specified
percentage. Applying less than 100% quantization lets you preserve some
of the “human” feel in the recording.

Equalizer (also called “EQ”) is a sound processor that divides the frequency spectrum into multiple bands
that can be boosted or cut as required to tailor the overall frequency response. Usually an equalizer is used to
correct the sound from speakers to match the special character of the room. For example, you can cut some of
the low range frequencies when playing in large spaces where the sound is too “boomy,” or boost the high
frequencies in rooms and close spaces where the sound is relatively “dead” and free of echoes.
The instrument possesses a high grade five-band digital EQ. With this function, a final effect—tone control—
can be added to the output of your instrument. You can select one of the five preset EQ settings in the EQ
display. You can even create your own custom EQ settings by adjusting the frequency bands, and save the
settings to one of two User Master EQ types.

■ 3BAND EQ (selected by [A] or [F] button)
EQ (Equalizer) is a processor that divides the frequency spectrum into multiple bands which can be
boosted or cut as required to tailor the overall frequency response. The PSR-S910 features a high-grade
three-band (LOW, MID and HIGH) digital equalizer function for the microphone sound.

VOCODER
CONTROL
The Vocal Harmony effect in Vocoder mode (page 85) is controlled by
note data—the notes you play on the keyboard and/or the notes of the
song data. This parameter lets you determine which notes are used to control the harmony.
MUTE/PLAY
When set to “MUTE,” the channel selected below (to control Harmony) is
muted (turned off) during keyboard performance or song playback.
OFF/1–16
When set to “OFF,” song data control over harmony is turned off. When
set to one of the values 1–16, note data (played from a Song on the PSRS910 or external MIDI sequencer) contained on the corresponding channel is used to control the harmony.
84
PSR-S910/S710 Reference Manual
KBD (Keyboard):
OFF
Keyboard control over harmony is turned off.
UPPER
Notes played to the right of the split point control the harmony.
LOWER
Notes played to the left of the split point control the harmony.
[4 ▲▼]
BAL. (Balance)
This lets you set the balance between the lead vocal (your own voice) and
Vocal Harmony. Raising this value increases the volume of the Vocal Harmony and decreases that of the lead vocal. When this is set to L<H63 (L:
Lead Vocal, H: Vocal Harmony), only the Vocal Harmony is output; when
it is set to L63>H, only the lead vocal is output.
[5 ▲▼]
MODE (Vocal
Harmony mode)
All of the Vocal Harmony types fall into one of three modes, which produce harmony in different ways. The harmony effect is dependent on the
selected Vocal Harmony mode, and this parameter determines how the
harmony is applied to your voice. The three modes are described below.
Connections – Using Your Instrument with Other Devices –
AUTO
When the [ACMP] or [LEFT] is set to ON and if chord data exists in the
Song, the mode is automatically set to CHORDAL. In all other cases, the
mode is set to VOCODER.
VOCOD (Vocoder)
The harmony notes are determined by the notes you play on the keyboard
and/or Song data. You can specify whether the Vocoder effect is controlled by your keyboard performance or by the Song data (VOCODER
CONTROL parameter above).
CHORD (Chordal)
The harmony notes are determined by the following three types of chord:
chords played in the chord section of the keyboard (with the [ACMP]
turned on), chords played in the LEFT Voice section of the keyboard
(with the [ACMP] turned off and the [LEFT] turned on), and chords contained in Song data for controlling the harmony. (Not available if the
Song does not contain any chord data.)
[6 ▲▼]
CHORD
The following parameters determine which data in a recorded Song is
used for chord detection.
OFF
Chords are not detected from the Song data.
XF
Chords of XF format are used for the Vocal Harmony.
10
1–16
Chords are detected from note data in the specified Song channel.

■ Pre-programmed MIDI Templates
Connections – Using Your Instrument with Other Devices –
ALL PARTS
Transmits all parts including the keyboard parts (RIGHT 1, 2, and LEFT), with
the exception of Song parts.
KBD & STYLE
Basically the same as “ALL PARTS” with the exception of how keyboard parts
are managed. The right-hand parts are handled as a “UPPER” instead of
RIGHT 1 and 2 and the left-hand part is handled as a “LOWER.”
Master KBD
In this setting, the instrument functions as a “master” keyboard, playing and
controlling one or more connected tone generators or other devices (such as a
computer/sequencer).
Song
All transmit channels are set to correspond to Song channels 1–16. This is used
to play Song data with an external tone generator and to record Song data to an
external sequencer.
Clock Ext.
Playback or recording (Song, Style, Multi Pad, etc.) synchronizes with an
external MIDI clock instead of the instrument’s internal clock. This template
should be used when you wish to set the tempo on the MIDI device connected
to the instrument.
MIDI Accord 1
MIDI accordions allow you to transmit MIDI data and play connected tone
generators from the keyboard and bass/chord buttons of the accordion. This
template lets you play melodies from the keyboard and control Style playback
on the instrument with the left-hand buttons.
MIDI Accord 2
Basically the same as “MIDI Accord1” above, with the exception that the
chord/bass notes you play with your left hand on the MIDI Accordion are recognized also as MIDI note events.
MIDI Pedal 1
MIDI pedal units allow you play connected tone generators with your feet
(especially convenient for playing single note bass parts). This template lets
you play/control the chord root in Style playback with a MIDI pedal unit.
MIDI Pedal 2
This template lets you play the bass part for Style playback by using a MIDI
pedal unit.
MIDI OFF
No MIDI signals are sent or received.

MIDI System Settings
The explanations here apply to the SYSTEM Page in step 4 on page 93.
Use the [A]/[B] buttons to select the parameters (below), then set the ON/OFF status by using the [1 ▲▼]–[8
▲▼] buttons.
Connections – Using Your Instrument with Other Devices –
1 Local Control
Turns the Local Control for each part on or off. When Local Control is set to “ON,” the keyboard of the
instrument controls its own (local) internal tone generator, allowing the internal Voices to be played
directly from the keyboard. If you set Local to “OFF,” the keyboard and controllers are internally
disconnected from the instrument’s tone generator section so that no sound is output when you play the
keyboard or use the controllers. For example, this allows you to use an external MIDI sequencer to play
the instrument’s internal Voices, and use the instrument keyboard to record notes to the external sequencer
and/or play an external tone generator.
2 Clock setting, etc.
■ CLOCK
Determines whether the instrument is controlled by its own internal clock or a MIDI clock signal received
from an external device. INTERNAL is the normal Clock setting when the instrument is being used alone
or as a master keyboard to control external devices. If you are using the instrument with an external
sequencer, MIDI computer, or other MIDI device, and you want to synchronize it to that device, set this
parameter to the appropriate setting: MIDI, USB 1, or USB 2. In this case, make sure that the external
device is connected properly (e.g., to the instrument’s MIDI IN terminal), and that it is properly
transmitting a MIDI clock signal.
NOTE If the Clock is set other than INTERNAL, the Style, Song or Multi Pad cannot be played from the panel buttons.
■ TRANSMIT CLOCK
Turns MIDI clock (F8) transmission on or off. When set to OFF, no MIDI clock or Start/Stop data is
transmitted even if a Song or Style is played back.
■ RECEIVE TRANSPOSE
Determines whether or not the instrument’s transpose setting is applied to the note events received by the
instrument via MIDI.
10
■ START/STOP
Determines whether incoming FA (start) and FC (stop) messages affect Song or Style playback.
3 MESSAGE SW (Message Switch)
■ SYS/EX.
The “Tx” setting turns MIDI transmission of MIDI System Exclusive messages on or off. The “Rx”
setting turns MIDI reception and recognition of MIDI System Exclusive messages generated by external
equipment on or off.
■ CHORD SYS/EX.
The “Tx” setting turns MIDI transmission of MIDI chord exclusive data (chord detect. root and type) on or
off. The “Rx” setting turns MIDI reception and recognition of MIDI chord exclusive data generated by
external equipment on or off.

Use the [A]/[B] buttons or [1 ▲▼]/[2 ▲▼] buttons to select the part for changing
transmit settings.
With the exception of the two parts below, the configuration of the parts is the same as those already
explained elsewhere in the Owner’s Manual.
UPPER
A keyboard part played on the right side of the keyboard from the Split Point for the Voices (RIGHT 1
and/or 2).
LOWER
A keyboard part played on the left side of the keyboard from the Split Point for the Voices. This is not
affected by the on/off status of the [ACMP] button.
2
Use the [3 ▲▼] buttons to select a channel via which the selected part will be
transmitted.
NOTE If the same transmit channel is assigned to several different parts, the transmitted MIDI messages are merged to a single channel—resulting in unex-
pected sounds and possible glitches in the connected MIDI device.
NOTE Protected Songs cannot be transmitted even if the proper Song channels 1–16 are set to be transmitted.
3
Use the [4 ▲▼]–[8 ▲▼] button to determine the types of data to be sent.
The following MIDI messages can be set on the TRANSMIT/RECEIVE display.

KEYBOARD
The received note messages control the instrument’s keyboard performance.
EXTRA PART 1–5
There are five parts specially reserved for receiving and playing MIDI data. Normally, these parts are not
used by the instrument itself. The PSR-S910/S710 can be used as a 32-channel multi-timbral tone
generator by using these five parts in addition to the parts (except for the microphone sound).
3
Use the [4 ▲▼]–[8 ▲▼] button to determine the types of data to be received.
MIDI transmission/reception via the USB terminal and MIDI terminals
The relationship between the [MIDI] terminals and the [USB] terminal which can be used for
transmitting/receiving 32 channels (16 channels x 2 ports) of the MIDI messages is as follows:

Setting the Bass Note for Style Playback via MIDI Receive
The explanations here apply to the BASS Page in step 4 on page 93. These settings let you determine the bass
note for Style playback, based on the note messages received via MIDI. The note on/off messages received at
the channel(s) set to “ON” are recognized as the bass note of the chord of Style playback. The bass note will
be detected regardless of the [ACMP] or split point settings. When several channels are simultaneously set to
“ON,” the bass note is detected from merged MIDI data received over the channels.

2
Use the [1 ▲▼]–[8 ▲▼] button to set the desired channel to ON or OFF.
You can also set all channels to OFF by pressing the [I] (ALL OFF) button.
Setting the Chord Type for Style Playback via MIDI Receive
The explanations here apply to the CHORD DETECT Page in step 4 on page 93. These settings let you
determine the chord type for Style playback, based on the note messages received via MIDI. The note on/off
messages received at the channel(s) set to “ON” are recognized as the notes for detecting chords in Style
playback. The chords to be detected depend on the fingering type. The chord types will be detected regardless
of the [ACMP] or split point settings. When several channels are simultaneously set to “ON,” the chord type
is detected from merged MIDI data received over the channels.
