Introduction
ENGLISH
Thank you for purchasing the Yamaha Digital Piano!
We recommend that you read this manual carefully so that you can
fully take advantage of the advanced and convenient functions.
We also recommend that you keep this manual in a safe and
handy place for future reference.
Main Features
Graded Hammer Effect Keyboard
Thanks to our experience as the world’s leading manufacturer of acoustic pianos, we’ve developed a keyboard with
action that’s virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. Just as on a traditional acoustic piano, the keys of the lower
notes have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. The keyboard’s sensitivity can
even be adjusted to match your playing style.
AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling
This digital piano offers a rich and versatile range of sounds, which are created using Yamaha’s proprietary sampling
tone-generation system, “AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling.”
AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) is a sampling system that creates sounds close to those of an acoustic instrument by
digitally recording the sounds of an instrument and applying high-quality digital filtering technology to the recorded
audio samples.
The sound waveform created by an acoustic piano differs depending on the player’s strength of touch, from pianissimo
to fortissimo.
AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling can create extremely dynamic nuances by recording samples at various playing
strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the greater the resulting expressiveness of the instrument.
The piano voice “Grand Piano 1” features a totally new sample recorded from a full-size concert grand piano. Each
note in the sample has been adjusted meticulously so that the digital piano will play only the very best piano sounds.
The piano voices are well-separated sounds featuring a fast attack and a satisfying response.
The “Grand Piano 1” voice features multiple wave samples for different velocities (Dynamic Sampling). That is, different samples are used depending on how fast or strong the player strikes the keys. Therefore, this voice expresses
detailed dynamics and sounds much closer to those of a true acoustic piano.
The instrument creates a rich, luxurious sound using “Sustain Sampling,” which is a sample of the soundboard and the
resonance of the strings when the damper pedal is pressed. The instrument also features “Key-off Sampling,” which is a
sample of the very delicate noises that are caused when keys are released.

When “Damper Resonance” is on, the instrument simulates the sustain sound that
occurs when you press the damper pedal of a grand piano, as you press the damper
pedal and play the keyboard.
An optional FC3 foot pedal or FC5 foot switch can also be connected to this jack. For
the FC3, the further down the pedal is pressed, the longer the sound will be sustained.
(It can be used like a half pedal effect).
Half-pedal:
While playing the piano with Sustain and you want to slightly mute
the sustained sound, release the
pedal from maximum position to
half position.
• The depth of the effect produced by the Sustain Samples can be adjusted via the Pedal functions (pages 39, 43) in Function.
AUX Pedal (AUX Pedal jack)
This jack is for connecting an optional FC3 foot pedal, FC5 foot switch or FC7 foot
controller. An included foot switch FC4 can also be connected to this jack. A wide

The instrument’s Transpose function makes it possible to shift the pitch of the entire keyboard up or
down in semitone intervals to facilitate playing in difficult key signatures, and to let you easily
match the pitch of the keyboard to the range of a singer or other instruments. For example, if you
set the transposition amount to “5,” playing key C produces pitch F. In this way, you can play a

Recording Your Performance
Recording Your Performance
You cannot record the performance to the connected USB storage device directly. The recorded
songs are saved to the instrument automatically. If you want to save data to the device, perform the
Save operation (page 31) after stopping recording.
TERMINOLOGY
NOTE
Recording vs. Saving:
The format of performance data recorded on an MD differs from that of data recorded on the instrument.
An MD records audio signals. The instrument “saves” information regarding note timing, voices, and a
tempo value, but not audio signals. When you play back recorded songs, the instrument produces
sound based on the saved information. Therefore, recording on the instrument may be more accurately
called “saving information.” However, this book often uses the word “recording” because it seems to
make more sense.
You can record your performance
(audio data) to an MD recorder or
other recording device via the
AUX OUT jack (page 47).
ENGLISH
The ability to record and play back what you’ve played on the keyboard can be an effective practice
aid. You can, for example, record just the left-hand part, and then practice the right-hand part
while playing back the recorded left-hand part. Or, since you can record up to two parts separately,
you could record the left- and right-hand parts separately, or record both parts of a duet and hear
how they sound when played back. The two-part Song Recorder on the instrument allows the
recording of up to three songs (U01–U03) or up to a maximum of about 100KB (11,000 notes) in
each song on the instrument depending on pedal usage and other factors.

P-155 Owner’s Manual
EQUAL TEMPERAMENT
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.

MIDI Transmit Channel Selection
In any MIDI control setup, the MIDI channels of the
transmitting and receiving devices must be matched for
proper data transfer.
This parameter enables you to specify the channel on
which the instrument transmits MIDI data.
Setting range: 1–16, OFF (not transmitted)
Default setting: 1
NOTE
• In Dual, Voice 1 data is transmitted on its specified channel. In
Split, right voice data is transmitted on its specified channel. In
Dual, Voice 2 data is transmitted on the next greater channel number relative to the specified channel. In Split, left voice data is
transmitted on the next greater channel number relative to the
specified channel. In either case, no data is transmitted if the
transmit channel is set to “OFF.”
• Song data is not transmitted via the MIDI connections. However,
channels 3–16 of External songs will be transmitted via the MIDI
connections depending on the Song Channel Selection setting

F7.2:
MIDI Receive Channel Selection
In any MIDI control setup, the MIDI channels of the
transmitting and receiving devices must be matched for
proper data transfer. This parameter enables you to specify the channel on which the instrument receives MIDI
data.
Setting range: ALL, 1&2, 1–16
Default setting: ALL
44
P-155 Owner’s Manual
NOTE
• ALL:
“Multi-timbre” Receive. This allows simultaneous reception of different parts on all 16 MIDI channels, enabling the instrument to
play multi-channel song data received from a music computer or
sequencer.
1&2:
“1&2” Receive. This allows simultaneous reception on channels 1
and 2 only, enabling the instrument to play 1 and 2 channel song
data received from a music computer or sequencer.
• Program change and other like channel messages received will
not affect the instrument’s panel settings or the notes you play on
the keyboard.
F7.3:
Local Control ON/OFF
“Local Control” refers to the fact that, normally, the
instrument keyboard controls its internal tone generator,
allowing the internal voices to be played directly from the
keyboard. This situation is “Local Control On,” since the
internal tone generator is controlled locally by its own
keyboard.
Local control can be turned OFF, however, so that the
keyboard does not play the internal voices, but the
appropriate MIDI information is still transmitted via the
MIDI OUT terminal when notes are played on the keyboard. At the same time, the internal tone generator
responds to MIDI information received via the MIDI IN
terminal.
Setting range: ON/OFF
Default setting: ON
F7.4:
Program Change ON/OFF
Normally the instrument will respond to MIDI program
change numbers received from an external keyboard or
other MIDI device, causing the correspondingly numbered voice to be selected on the corresponding channel
(the keyboard voice does not change). The instrument
will normally also send a MIDI program change number
whenever one of its voices is selected, causing the correspondingly 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 instrument without affecting the external MIDI device.
NOTE
For information on program change numbers for each of the instrument’s voices, refer to MIDI Data Format page 62.
Setting range: ON/OFF
Default setting: ON
Detailed Settings – [FUNCTION]
Control Change ON/OFF
Normally the instrument 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 keyboard voice
is not affected).
The instrument also transmits MIDI control change
information when the pedal or other appropriate controls are operated.
This function makes it possible to cancel control change
data reception and transmission so that, for example, the
instrument’s pedal and other controls can be operated
without affecting an external MIDI device.
NOTE
For information on control changes that can be used with the instrument, refer to MIDI Data Format on page 62.
Setting range: ON/OFF
Default setting: ON
F7.6:
Panel/Status Transmit
This function causes all the current instrument panel settings (selected voice, etc.) to be transmitted via the MIDI
OUT terminal.
F7.7:
Initial Setup Send
This function lets you send the data of the panel settings
to a computer. By transmitting the panel settings and
recording them on the MIDI sequence recorder prior to
the actual performance data, the instrument will be
automatically restored to the same settings when the performance is played back. You can also use this function to
change the settings of a connected tone generator to the
same settings as the instrument.

• USB storage devices (flash memory, floppy disk drive,
hard disk drive, etc.)
• When connecting a USB device to the USB [TO
DEVICE] terminal, make sure that the connector on
the device is appropriate and that it is connected in the
proper direction.
The instrument does not necessarily support all commercially available USB devices. Yamaha cannot guarantee
operation of USB devices that you purchase. Before purchasing a USB device for use with this instrument, please
visit the following web page:
http://music.yamaha.com/download/
NOTE
• Though the instrument supports the USB 1.1 standard,
you can connect and use a USB 2.0 storage device with
the instrument. However, note that the transfer speed is
that of USB 1.1.
ENGLISH
NOTE
Other USB devices such as a computer keyboard or
mouse cannot be used.
Using USB Storage Devices
By connecting the instrument to a USB storage device, you can save data you’ve created to the
connected device, as well as read data from the connected device.
NOTE
Although CD-R/RW drives can be used to read data to the instrument, they cannot be used for saving data.
Number of USB storage devices that can
be used
Only one USB storage device can be connected to the
USB [TO DEVICE] terminal.
To protect your data (write-protect)
To prevent important data from being inadvertently
erased, apply the write-protect provided with each storage device or media. If you are saving data to the USB
storage device, make sure to disable write-protect.
Formatting USB storage media
When a USB storage device is connected or media is
inserted, a message may appear prompting you to format
the device/media. If so, execute the Format operation
(page 35).
Connecting/removing USB storage
device
Before removing the media from the device, make sure
that the instrument is not accessing data (such as in the
Save and Delete operations).
CAUTION
The format operation overwrites any previously existing data.
Make sure that the media you are formatting does not contain
important data.
CAUTION
Avoid frequently turning the power on/off to the USB storage
device, or connecting/disconnecting the device too often. Doing
so may result in the operation of the instrument “freezing” or
hanging up. While the instrument is accessing data (such as during Save, Delete, Load and Format operations) or is mounting
the USB storage device (shortly after the connection), do NOT
unplug the USB connector, do NOT remove the media from the
device, and do NOT turn the power off to either device. Doing
so may corrupt the data on either or both devices.

Handling the Floppy Disk Drive (FDD) and Floppy Disks (Optional)
Handling the Floppy Disk Drive (FDD)
and Floppy Disks (Optional)
ENGLISH
An optional floppy disk drive can be installed to this
instrument.
The floppy disk drive lets you save original data you’ve
created on the instrument to floppy disk, and allows you
to load data from floppy disk to the instrument.
Be sure to handle floppy disks and treat the disk drive
with care. Follow the important precautions below.
Floppy Disk Compatibility
3.5" 2DD and 2HD type floppy disks can be used.
Formatting a Floppy Disk
If you find that you are unable to use new, blank disks or
old disks that have been used with other devices, you may
need to format them. For details on how to format a disk,
see pages 35. Keep in mind that all data on the disk will be
lost after formatting. Make sure to check beforehand
whether or not the disk contains important data.
NOTE
Floppy disks formatted on this device may or may not be
useable as is on other devices.
Inserting/Removing Floppy Disks
Inserting a Floppy Disk into the Disk Drive:
Hold the disk so that the label of the disk is facing upward
and the sliding shutter is facing forward, towards the disk
slot. Carefully insert the disk into the slot, slowly pushing
it all the way in until it clicks into place and the eject button pops out.
NOTE
Never insert anything but floppy disks into the disk drive.
Other objects may cause damage to the disk drive or
floppy disks.
Removing a Floppy Disk
After checking that the instrument is not accessing* the
floppy disk (checking that the use lamp on the floppy disk
drive is off), firmly press the eject button at the upper
right of the disk slot all the way in. When the floppy disk
is ejected, pull it out of the drive. If the floppy disk cannot
be removed because it is stuck, do not try to force it, but
instead try pressing the eject button again, or try reinserting the disk and attempt to eject it again.
* Access of the disk indicates an active operation, such as playback or deletion of data. If a floppy disk is inserted while the
power is on, the disk is automatically accessed, since the
instrument checks whether the disk has data.
Be sure to remove the floppy disk from the disk drive
before turning off the power. A floppy disk left in the
drive for extended periods can easily pick up dust and dirt
that can cause data-read and -write errors.
Cleaning the Disk Drive Read/Write Head
Clean the read/write head regularly. This instrument
employs a precision magnetic read/write head which,
after an extended period of use, will pick up a layer of
magnetic particles from the disks used that will eventually
cause read and write errors.
To maintain the disk drive in optimum working order
Yamaha recommends that you use a commercially-available dry-type head cleaning disk to clean the head about
once a month. Ask your Yamaha dealer about the availability of proper head cleaning disks.
About Floppy Disks
Handle floppy disks with care, and follow
these precautions:
• Do not place heavy objects on a disk or bend or apply
pressure to the disk in any way. Always keep floppy
disks in their protective cases when they are not in use.
• Do not expose the disk to direct sunlight, extremely
high or low temperatures, or excessive humidity, dust
or liquids.
• Do not open the sliding shutter and touch the exposed
surface of the floppy disk inside.
• Do not expose the disk to magnetic fields, such as those
produced by televisions, speakers, motors, etc., since
magnetic fields can partially or completely erase data
on the disk, rendering it unreadable.
• Never use a floppy disk with a deformed shutter or
housing.
• Do not attach anything other than the provided labels
to a floppy disk. Also make sure that labels are attached
in the proper location.
To Protect Your Data (Write-protect Tab):
To prevent accidental erasure of important data, slide the
disk’s write-protect tab to the “protect” position (tab
open). When saving data, make sure that the disk’s writeprotect tab is set to the “overwrite” position (tab closed).
CAUTION
Do not remove the floppy disk or turn off the instrument itself
while the disk is being accessed.
Doing so may result not only in loss of data on the disk but also
damage to the floppy disk drive.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
ENGLISH
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
The instrument does not turn on.
The instrument has not been plugged in properly. Securely insert the female plug
into the socket on the instrument, and the male plug into a proper AC outlet
(page 10).
A click or pop is heard when the power is turned
on or off.
This is normal when electrical current is being applied to the instrument.
Noise is heard from the speakers or headphones.
The noise may be due to interference caused by the use of a mobile phone in
close proximity to the instrument. Turn off the mobile phone, or use it further away
from the instrument.
The overall volume is low, or no sound is heard.
• The Master Volume is set too low; set it to an appropriate level using the [MASTER VOLUME] dial.
• Make sure a pair of headphones is not connected to the headphones jack
(page 11).
• Make sure that Local Control (page 44) is ON.
The sustain pedal has no effect.
The pedal cable/plug may not be properly connected. Make sure to securely
insert the pedal plug into the proper jack (page 48).
The foot pedal seems to produce the opposite
effect. For example, pressing the foot pedal cuts
off the sound and releasing it sustains the
sounds.
The type of the foot pedal is reversed.
If this happens, use F5.6 or F5.7 to correct the pedal type (pages 39, 43).
The USB storage device is not recognized by
the instrument.
The USB storage device may not be recognized by the instrument depending on
the timing of the device connection.
If the [USB] indicator is already lit by pressing of the [SONG SELECT] button, reselect the [USB] indicator after turning the [USB] indicator off by pressing the
[SONG SELECT] button.
If the device is still not recognized, it may not be supported by Yamaha. Only use
devices supported by Yamaha (pages 53).
The USB storage device has hung up
(stopped).
The USB storage device is not compatible with the instrument.
Only use devices whose compatibility has been confirmed by Yamaha (pages 53).
The USB storage device does not operate properly.
Disconnect the device and connect it to the instrument again.
56
The three LEDs of “SAVE TO USB,” “LOAD TO
USER” and “DEL./FORMAT” at the [FILE] button flash simultaneously when a storage device
is connected.
Disconnect the USB storage device and turn the power of the instrument off. The
USB storage device is not compatible with the instrument.
Only use devices whose compatibility has been confirmed by Yamaha (pages 53).
The three LEDs of “SAVE TO USB,” “LOAD TO
USER” and “DEL./FORMAT” at the [FILE] button flash simultaneously for five seconds when
the USB storage device is operated.
Disconnect the USB storage device and connect it again.

• When Control Change is turned OFF, Control Change messages will not be transmitted or received.
• Local on/off, OMNI on/off are not transmitted. (The appropriate note off number is supplied with “All Note Off” transmission).
• When a voice bank MSB/LSB is received, the number is
stored in the internal buffer regardless of the received order,
then the stored value is used to select the appropriate voice
when a program change message is received.
• Poly mode is always active. This mode will not change when
the instrument receives MONO/POLY mode message.

• Some devices use a “0 to 127” numbering system for program
change messages. Since the instrument uses a “1 to 128”
numbering system, you will need to subtract 1 from the transmitted program change numbers to select the appropriate
sound: e.g. to select P.C.#1 in the list above, transmit program
change number 0.

• Receipt of the XG SYSTEM ON message causes reinitialization of relevant parameters and Control Change values. Allow
sufficient time for processing to execute (about 50 msec)
before sending the instrument another message.
• XG Native Parameter Change message may contain two or
four bytes of parameter data (depending on the parameter
size).
• For information about the Address and Byte Count values,
refer to Table 1 below. Note that the table’s Total Size value
gives the size of a bulk block. Only the top address of the
block (00H, 00H, 00H) is valid as a bulk data address.
