The SU200 records sound from a microphone or from input from a CD player or similar audio device. This
recording process is called sampling, and the recorded sounds are called samples. You can record a sample
into each pad, and play the sample back by pressing the pad. The SU200 can store up to 24 samples (3 banks
× 8 pads) in its internal memory.
Samples are stored in digital form, just like recordings on an audio CD. The SU200 is capable of CD-quality
recording.

What is Sampling?
SU200 Features
The SU200 provides more than just standard sampling. This page introduces you to some of the
special features included on the SU200.
■ Loop-Track Play: Play loop samples in unison, all at the same tempo (BPM)
(→ Pages 18, 32)
Although each sample has its own tempo setting, you can use this feature to play out multiple
samples all at the same tempo. (You can also use an external MIDI clock to synchronize the playback.)
■ Powerful Effects and Filter (→ Pages 17, 36)
Use the Loop Remix effect to rearrange break beats in real time. Or select from other dynamic
effects, or apply a filter. You can control the characteristics of each effect using the ribbon controller and Effect Control knobs.
■ Clear User Interface
• The backlit display makes it easy to view your panel settings.
• Pads light up when pressed, so that you can easily see which pads are playing.
• Effect buttons ([DIST] to [FILTER]) and the [SCRATCH] button light up when pressed, so that
you can easily identify the effect that is currently selected.
● Apply effects and filtering to realtime audio input ( → Page 19)
Apply filtering or an effects (TECH MOD, DIST/LO-FI, or DELAY) to input from an external
audio source.
● Includes resampling capability (→ Page 26)
Mix multiple samples (together with effects, scratch, and filter) and record the result as a single
new sample.
● Includes a memory-card slot (→ Page 40)
Use a memory card (SmartMedia card) to save and load sample data or WAV files.
● Allows simultaneous playback of samples recorded at different grades
You can record a sample in any of four grades (quality levels). This allows you to economize on
memory: use low grades for sounds that are not affected by the quality level, and use high grades
for sounds that require high resolution (cymbal sounds, etc.). You can play all of these samples
back at the same time.
● Can operate on battery power
You can use the SU200 outdoors and in other locations where power connections are not available.

The SU200 Design
Internal Configuration
The SU200 consists of three internal blocks.
●Sampler Block
Records samples from sound input from a microphone, CD player, or other audio device, and allows
editing and processing of the recorded samples.
●Effector/Filter Block
Applies an effect or filter to the sound output from the sampler block. The SU200 provides six effect
types: some of them standard effects, and others newly designed specifically for use with sample playback.

Modes
The SU200 has three main operating modes.
●Pad-Play Mode
The SU200 enters this mode immediately following power-on. This is the mode you use to play and edit
your samples. All operating procedures presented in this manual assume that you are starting from
Pad-Play mode.
●Sampling Mode
This is the mode you use to record samples. You enter this mode by pressing the [REC] button, so that
the REC indication appears in the display.
●Job Mode
You use this mode to make various settings: pad settings, memory-card settings, and so on. You enter
this mode by pressing the [JOB] button.
NOTE • If you lose track of the current mode when working at the panel, you can return to Pad-Play
mode by pressing the [EXIT] button one or more times (depending on the mode you are currently in).

Quick Start
Playing Samples
The SU200 comes with samples recorded for all pads. You are now ready to start using the pads to
play these prerecorded samples.
Z Make the necessary connections.
Connect up headphones or an output audio device. (See page 10.)
X Press the [STANDBY/ON] switch on the SU200’s rear panel.
The SU200 displays YAMAHA SU200 and then enters Pad-play mode.
You can turn the power off by pressing the switch a second time.
STANDBY
ON
CAUTION
• Even when the switch is in the “STANDBY” position, electricity is still flowing to the
instrument at the minimum level. When you are not using the SU200 for a long time,
make sure you unplug the AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet, and/or remove the
batteries from the instrument.
C Pressing each pad plays a different sample.
●For example, try pressing and holding pad 1.
Notice that the pad lights up and that a drum rhythm pattern repeats (loops) as long as the pad is held
down. The playback stops when the pad is released.
●Next, try pressing pad 8.
The pad lights up and you hear a cymbals sample, which plays once through and then stops.
Notice that pad 1 is set for loop play: it continues to play the sample repeatedly as long as it is held
down. Pad 8 is set for one-shot play: it plays the sample once through only. You are free to set each pad
to play either loop or one-shot, and you can change the setting any time you wish. (See page 29.)
NOTE • The SU200 provides eight pads and three banks,
allowing you to store and play up to 24 samples.
(Switching the bank changes you to a whole different set of samples.) In the examples given here
we are using bank A.
• The SU200 can play a maximum of 6 standard (or
lower) grade monaural samples at one time, or up
to 2 high-grade samples at one time. The maximum number may decline, however, when using
the scratch or time stretch.

Chapter 1 Recording Samples
This chapter explains how to record samples. You can record samples using either automatic start
(AUTO) or manual start (MANUAL). You can also re-record existing samples (resampling).
●Automatic
Recording automatically starts when the input level reaches a specified trigger level. This is
the method you used when recording your voice during the Quick Start tutorial. (See
directly below.)
Recording starts immediately when you press the [START/STOP] button. (See page 24.)
Use this feature to record from the SU200's own output. This feature allows you to mix multiple samples (together with effects, scratch, and filter) and record the result as a single new
sample. (See page 26.)

Using the [HOLD] Feature
Use this feature when you want changes in effects and other settings to apply to a single selected
pad, regardless of the order in which you are playing the pads.
If you do not use the HOLD feature, changes you make in effects and other settings will apply to the
last pad that you pressed. If you have "held" a pad, however, then all changes apply only to that pad
(until you release the hold).
To select a pad to be held. hold down the [HOLD] button and press the pad button. To release the
hold, just press the [HOLD] button once again.
If you have held a pad, the screen will display an
mark.
● For example, assume that hold is off. You press pad 1, and then make an effect setting. The new setting
applies to pad 1. Now you press pad 2, and then enter another setting. This time the setting applies to pad 2
(since that is the last pad you pressed). The target changes each time you press a different pad.
● Now assume that you hold down the [HOLD] button and press pad 1óso that pad 1 is held. Then you release
both buttons. Next, you press various other pads and make various settings. In this case all settings apply
to pad 1 only.
You can stop playback by pressing the same pad or the [HOLD]
button once again.
Hold the pad down and press
the [HOLD] button.
Loop-Track Play
Use this feature to play loop samples from multiple pads simultaneously. The basic operation was
described in the Quick Start tutorial (see page 18). This section explains some important issues
related to this type of playback.
NOTE • Bass-phrase samples or bouncing rhythm-phrase samples may produce noise when used with
Loop Track Play. An alternative approach in such cases is to use the job mode's time-stretch
feature (instead of Loop Track play) to synchronize the BPMs of the samples you want to play
together. Note, however, that if you do this, you will not be able to adjust the sample BPMs in
real time).
Changing the loop-track playback tempo (BPM)
You can freely adjust the tempo used for loop-track play. The basic operation was described in the Quick
Start tutorial (see Step 3 on page 18). Please note the following points.
• The SU200 remembers the most recent loop-track playback tempo. When you resume loop-track play, the tempo
restarts where it left off. (The tempo setting is retained even after the power is switched off.)
• Some tempo distortion may occur if all of the selected loop samples are EXLG (extra long).
Changing the sample’s tempo (bar-length) setting
The SU200 lets you set a sample’s loop length to 1 bar or 2 bars (1 bar = 1 measure). This setting affects
Loop-Track Play only. If you set the length to 1 bar, the sample loops once every bar. If you set the length to
2 bars, the sample slows down and loops once every two bars.
For example, assume that you have set pads 1 and 2 for loop playback (see page 29).
● If pad 1 and pad 2 are both set to 1bar, Loop-Tray Play looks like this:
Pad 1
Pad 2
32
Chapter 2 Playing the Pads

● If pad 1 is set to 2bar while pad 2 is still set to 1bar:
Pad 2

You can change the bar-length setting from Pad-Play mode; simply select the pad and then press [-1/NO] or [+1/YES]
to switch the setting. Note that the bpm (beats-per-minute) setting changes accordingly.
–1/NO
bpm 70
1bar

Try changing some of the bar settings. Press the [LOOP TR PLAY] button after making each change, so that you can
hear how the sound changes.
NOTE • You cannot convert from 1-bar to 2-bar if the 1-bar sample has a bpm above 115. You cannot
convert from 2-bar to 1-bar if the 2-bar sample has a bpm lower than 120.
Switching an effect to a different pad without changing the playback state
To switch the effect to a different pad during Loop-Track Play without changing the playback state, hold
down the [HOLD] button and press the pad that you want to move the effect to. Note that in this case the
pad press will have no effect on the playback state of the pad’s sample (does not switch muting off or on,
etc.). For more information, see page 36.

Chapter 4 Effects
You can use the SU200’s ribbon controller and EFFECT CONTROL knobs to apply an effect or filter
to playback of any sample or to real-time audio input. The basic operation is described in the Quick
Start tutorial (see page 17). This chapter provides a more detailed explanation about the effects, the
filter, the scratch feature, and the time-stretch feature.
NOTE • The scratch effect cannot be used in combination with the TIME effect, but can be used with
any of the other effects or filters.
• Effects, filters, and scratch do not operate during playback of high-grade samples.
Selecting the Pad that Receives the Effect or Filter
As explained in the Quick Start tutorial (see page 17), you select the pad that receives the effect (or filter) by (a) pressing the pad, and then (b) pressing the appropriate effect button. Note however, that
pressing the pad also causes the pad’s sample to start or stop playback. In many cases—such as
when you are in the midst of a performance and multiple pads are playing—you may want to move the
effect to a different pad without starting or stopping playback of that pad’s sample. You can do this by
holding down the [HOLD] button while pressing the pad.
The following example shows how this works. Assume that the effect is originally assigned to pad 1,
and that pads 1 though 5 are playing, with all other pads silent.
● Hold down the [HOLD] button and press pad 2. This cancels the effect for pad 1 and moves the effect to pad 2. The
pad-2 sample continues playing. (Since you were holding [EXIT] down, playback did not stop when you pressed the
pad.)
A-2
● Hold down the [HOLD] button again and press pad 7. The effect now moves to pad 7. Again, the pad-7 playback
state remains unchanged (the pad-7 sample remains off).
A-7
● Now hold down the [HOLD] button once again and press the AUDIO IN pad. The effect will now apply to your audio
input. The current audio-input state remains unchanged (in this case, remains off).
AUdIO
Pressing the [HOLD] button together with a pad also sets that pad as the “held” pad. (See page 32.)
Effects, Filter, and Scratch
As you can see from the panel, you are free to use any of the effects listed below. You can control
the characteristics of each effect by turning EFFECT CONTROL knobs 1 and 2.
● LOOP REMIX
This effect breaks the pad’s sample (the part between the start point and end point) into multiple pieces, and rearranges these pieces into a different order. Use this as an easy way to create new drum patterns out of existing 1-bar
and 2-bar drum-pattern samples.
36
• Type.................... Controls how the sample is broken up. Turning knob 1 to the right increases the number of
pieces (reducing the size of each piece).
• Variation............. Turning knob 2 to the right increases the amount of reverse playback with the rearranged
pieces.
Chapter 4 Effects
● SLICE
• Type .................... Turn knob 1 to change the slice pattern.
• Gate Time .......... Turn knob 2 to change the slice hold time.
● TECH MOD
This effect applies a distinctive modulation and a metallic tonality.
• LFO .................... The low frequency oscillator that generates the modulation. Turn knob 1 to control the LFO
modulation effect.
• MOD SPEED .... Turn knob 2 to change the modulation speed.
● DIST/LO-FI
This effect adds edge distortion and produces a more lo-fi sound.
• LO-FI .................. Turn knob 1 to vary the lo-fi (quality degradation) characteristics.
• DRIVE ................ Turn knob 2 to change the amount of distortion.
● DELAY
This effect adds a delay.
• DELAY LEVEL .. Turn knob 1 to control the sound level of the delayed sound component.
• TIME................... Turn knob 2 to control the delay time: the time between the start of the original playback and
the start of the delayed playback. The delay time changes in accordance with the sample’s
tempo (BPM).
● FILTER
The filter removes a specific frequency range from the sample output, producing a change in the sound quality.
• CUTOFF ............ Turn knob 2 to make the sound brighter or darker.
• RESONANCE ... Turn knob 1 to apply distinctive resonance characteristics to the sound. Turning the knob
heightens the overtones, resulting in a twanging sound similar to that produced by an analog
synthesizer.
● SCRATCH
This feature lets you use the ribbon controller to scratch out a selected sample. Rub the ribbon up or down to play the
sample forward or in reverse, emulating the scratch sound produced by manually turning a vinyl disc.
● TIME (real-time tempo change)
This feature changes the playback tempo in real time while introducing a distortion effect.

NOTE • The SU200 can play a maximum of 6 standard (or lower) grade monaural samples at one
time, or up to 2 high-grade samples at one time. The maximum number may decline, however, when using the scratch or TIME feature.
• Loop Remix, Slice, TIME, and scratch do not work on audio input.
• Loop Remix and Slice may generate noise when used with certain types of sound.
• Loop Remix and Slice have no effect on pads that are set to one-shot play.
• If you use Loop Remix on a sample for which loop-track play is off, you may notice a slight
change in the sample's tempo.

About MIDI
What is MIDI?
MIDI (for “Musical Instrument Digital Interface”) is a standard, internationally recognized interface for music-related digital communication among electronic instruments, computers, sequencers, and related devices. The interface allows different types of devices from different manufactures to exchange music performance data, music voice data, and other
music-related information.
MIDI Channels
A single MIDI cable carries up to 16 channels of performance data. The channel concept is the same as with TV broadcasting: multiple channels are transmitted, and the viewer selects any one of these channels to be received. If you wish to control the SU200 from an external MIDI device, therefore, you need to set the SU200’s MIDI Receive channel to match the
external device’s Send channel.

Chapter 6 Using Memory Cards
Handling the Memory Card(SmartMediaTM*)
Be sure to handle Memory Cards with care. Follow the important precautions below.
* SmartMedia is a trademark of Toshiba Corporation.
■Compatible Memory Card Type
3.3V(3V) Memory Cards can be used. 5V type Memory Cards are not compatible with this instrument.
■Memory Capacity
There are five types of Memory Cards: 2MB/4MB/8MB/16MB/32MB. A Memory Card with the memory capacity
exceeding 32MB can also be used if it conforms to the standards of SSFDC (Solid State Memory Card Card:
another name of SmartMedia) Forum.
■Inserting/Removing Memory Cards
•
To insert a Memory Card:
Hold the Memory Card so that the connector section (gold) of the Memory Card is facing downward and forward,
towards the Memory Card slot. Carefully insert the Memory Card into the slot, slowly pushing it all the way in
until it is fitted in place.
NOTE • Don’t insert the Memory Card in wrong direction.
• Don’t insert anything other than a Memory Card in the slot.
•
To remove a Memory Card:
Before removing the Memory Card, be sure to confirm that the Memory Card is not in use, or it is not being
accessed by the instrument. Then pull the Memory Card out slowly by hand. If the Memory Card is being
accessed*, a message (keep PwrOn) to indicate that it is in use appears on the instrument’s display.
* It includes saving, loading, formatting and deleting. Also, be aware that the instrument will automatically access
the Memory Card to check the media type when you enter job mode on.
CAUTION
• Never attempt to remove the Memory Card or turn the power off during accessing. Doing so can damage the data
on the instrument/Memory Card and possibly the Memory Card itself.
■Formatting Memory Cards
Before using a Memory Card with your instrument it must first be formatted. Once it is formatted all data on it
will be erased. Be sure to check if the data is unnecessary for you or not, beforehand.
NOTE • The Memory Cards formatted with this instrument may become unusable with other instruments.
40
Chapter 6 Using Memory Cards
■About the Memory Cards
To handle Memory Cards with care:
There are times when static electricity affects Memory Cards. Before you handle Memory Cards, to reduce the
possibility of static electricity, touch the metal parts such as a door knob and aluminum sash.
Be sure to remove the Memory Card from the Memory Card slot when it is not in use for a long time.
Do not expose the Memory Card to direct sunlight, extremely high or low temperatures, or excessive humidity,
dust or liquids.
Do not place heavy objects on a Memory Card or bend or apply pressure to the Memory Card in any way.
Do not touch the metal part (gold) of the Memory Card or put any metallic plate onto the metal part.
Do not expose the Memory Card to magnetic fields, such as those produced by televisions, speakers, motors, etc.,
since magnetic fields can partially or completely erase data on the Memory Card, rendering it unreadable.
Do not attach anything other than the provided labels to a Memory Card. Also make sure that labels are attached
in the proper location.
•
To protect your data (Write-protect):
To prevent inadvertent erasure of important data, stick the write-protect seal (provided in the Memory Card package) onto the designated area (within a circle) of the Memory Card.
Conversely speaking, to save data on the Memory Card, make sure to remove the write-protect seal from the Card.
Do not reuse the seal that is peeled off.
■Data Backup
For maximum data security Yamaha recommends that you keep two copies of important data on separate Memory Cards. This gives you a backup if one Memory Card is lost or damaged.

Saving Data into a Memory Card
The SU200 offers the following two methods for saving sample data into a memory card.
● Volume Save: Save all data from all SU200 samples into the card.
● Wave Export: Save a selected sample into the card as a WAV file.
The “volume save” will save all samples together with all related settings.
NOTE • These operations do not save settings related to the EFFECT CONTROL knobs and ribbon controller.
• If the memory card does not have enough free space to hold the save, the SU200 displays an error
message (see page 52) and cancels the save operation. If you wish to proceed, you must use a different card or delete one or more files from the current card.
• The term volume refers to the entire set of SU200 sample data: all samples (waveform data
together with settings) for all pads.
• Before you can save data into a new memory card, you must format the card. (See page 47.)

these messages.
The batteries are running low and need to be replaced. For
information about how to replace the batteries, see page 12.
Upon displaying this message, the SU200 also sets on memory protection (see page 51), disabling all operations that
write new data into memory and preventing entry into job
mode. These operations remain disabled until the batteries
are replaced.
Battry

This message appears immediately following power-on if the
SU200 detects corruption in its recorded data. This type of
corruption can be caused, for example, by switching off
power while the SU200 is in the process of writing data.
The SU200 does its best to restore the bad data, but it is possible that some or all of your recorded data may be lost. If
you find that the data is very corrupted, please reinitialize

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause
No sound
• Is your playback device (powered speakers, etc.) correctly connected?
• The volume on the SU200 or the playback device may be set too
low.
• The pad volume setting (see page 51) may be too low.
• Check that batteries are correctly installed, or that the power
adaptor is correctly connected. (See page 12.)
• Are batteries fresh? If batteries are old, try replacing them.
• You may be trying to play an empty pad (a pad that does not
contain a recorded sample).
• Are the sample’s start and end points set correctly?
• If you are using the filter, try changing the cutoff (see page 37).
Some cutoff settings may cause all sound to go off.
Sound is distorted.
• The volume on the SU200 or the playback device may be set too
high.
• Are batteries fresh? If batteries are old, try replacing them.
• Use of an effect or filter at certain settings may produce distortion. (See page 36.)
• You may have set the input level too high when you were
recording the sample.
Loop-Track Play doesn’t start
when the [LOOP TR PLAY] button is pressed.
• The clock setting may be set to EXT (see page 39).
Cannot record samples.
• Is LINE INPUT or MIC INPUT correctly connected? (See page
10.)
• The Protect function may be on. (See page 53.)
Cannot start sample recording
(AUTO start).
• The trigger level may be set too high. (See page 23.)
Sample recording starts too soon
(AUTO start).
• The trigger level may be set too low. (See page 23.)
Available sampling time seems
too low.
Sampling memory is running low. You can economize on memory
use as follows.
• Reduce the sampling grade. (See pages 22, 24.)
• Record in MONO rather than STEREO. (See pages 22, 24.)
• Delete unnecessary samples. (See page 34.)
Cannot control the SU200 from
an external MIDI device.
• Be sure that the SU200’s MIDI channel setting matches the
channel setting of the external device. (See page 39.)
• Be sure that the clock setting is set to EXT. (See page 39.)
Cannot play SU200 samples from
an external MIDI keyboard.
• Be sure that the SU200’s MIDI channel setting matches the
channel setting of the external device. (See page 39.)
• Remember that the SU200’s 24 virtual pads (3 banks × 8 pads)
are mapped to the 24 white keys from C1 to E4 on the external
keyboard. Keys outside of this range do not produce any sample
playback.
