Features
Hybrid Piano
Combining over one hundred years of superb piano craftsmanship with the latest advanced technologies, Yamaha is proud to introduce a true hybrid acoustic/digital piano that meets the demands of contemporary musicians.
Authentic Acoustic Piano Touch with Special Grand Piano Action and Piano Keyboard
This innovative keyboard delivers the rich expressive quality of an acoustic grand piano, thanks to its finely
nuanced touch and exceptional response. Drawing on over one hundred years of expertise in crafting grand
pianos, Yamaha has created a unique and yet wholly traditional piano action mechanism for the AvantGrand.
The AvantGrand offers a special action that features the same configuration as the action of an acoustic grand
piano. The movement of the hammers and the weight distribution of each hammer have been meticulously
adjusted to give this instrument an exceptionally smooth feel. The keyboard also features real-wood keys, just
as on a real grand piano, letting you enjoy an authentic touch and feel that goes far beyond any existing digital
piano.
The Realistic Ambience of Grand Piano Voice
The AvantGrand features Yamaha’s original “Spatial Acoustic Sampling” tone-generation sampling technology for the grand piano voices. The voices are sampled from four positions around a grand piano, not only
from the left and right (as on most digital pianos), but also from the center and rear.
The instrument also utilizes the “Spatial Acoustic Speaker System,” in which each speaker is equipped with
its own dedicated amplifier. This is essential for preserving the sonic integrity of each frequency range and
making sure that the nuances of each sound are reproduced naturally with absolute clarity.
These technologies provide rich resonance and sonic power heretofore only available on an actual grand
piano.
Best Condition without Tuning
Unlike acoustic pianos, the AvantGrand does not need to be tuned. It always stays perfectly in tune even after
long-time use.
Flexible Volume Control
The AvantGrand gives you full control over the instrument volume, letting you adjust the level just as desired.
Also, you can play or listen in total privacy through one or two pairs of headphones.

Set the voltage selector to an appropriate voltage.
Voltage Selector
Before connecting the AC power cord, check the setting of the voltage selector which is provided
in some areas. To set the selector for 110V, 127V, 220V or 240V main voltages, use a “minus”
screwdriver to rotate the selector dial so that the correct voltage for your region appears next to the
pointer on the panel. The voltage selector is set at 240V when the unit is initially shipped. After the
proper voltage has been selected, connect the AC power cord to the AC IN and an AC wall outlet.
A plug adaptor may be also provided in some areas to match the pin configuration of the AC wall
outlets in your area.
WARNING
Make sure your instrument is rated for the AC voltage supplied in the area in which it is to be used. (The voltage rating
appears on the name plate on the bottom panel). Connecting the unit to an inappropriate AC supply can seriously
damage the internal circuitry and may even pose a shock hazard!
1-2 Insert the plug on the other end of the power cord to a standard AC outlet.
WARNING
Use only the AC power cord supplied with the instrument. If the supplied power
cord is lost or damaged and needs to be replaced, contact your Yamaha dealer.
The use of an inappropriate replacement can pose a fire and shock hazard!
WARNING
The type of AC power cord provided with the instrument may be different depending on the country in which the instrument was purchased. (In some areas a plug
adaptor may be provided to match the pin configuration of the AC wall outlets in
your area.) Do NOT modify the plug provided with the instrument. If the plug will
not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

10 • N1 Owner’s Manual
Playing the Keyboard
Using the Pedals
The instrument has three foot pedals that produce a range of expressive effects similar to those produced by the
pedals on an acoustic piano.
Damper (Right) Pedal
The damper pedal functions in the same way as a damper pedal on an
acoustic piano. When the damper pedal is pressed, notes sustain longer.
Releasing the pedal immediately stops (damps) any sustained notes. The
damper pedal features a half-pedal function.
What is the half-pedal function?
This function allows the sustain length to vary depending on how far the pedal is pressed. The farther you press the
pedal, the more the sound sustains. For example, if you press the damper pedal and all notes you are playing sound a
bit murky and loud with too much sustain, you can release the pedal half way to subdue the sustain (murkiness).
When you press the damper pedal
here, the notes you play before you
release the pedal sustain longer.
Sostenuto (Center) Pedal
If you play a note or chord on the keyboard and press the sostenuto pedal
while the note(s) are held, those notes will sustain as long as you hold the
pedal (as if the damper pedal had been pressed) but all subsequently
played notes will not be sustained. This makes it possible to sustain a
chord, for example, while other notes are played “staccato.”
When you press the sostenuto pedal
here while holding the note, the note will
sustain as long as you hold the pedal.
Soft (Left) Pedal
The soft pedal reduces the volume and slightly changes the timbre of notes played while the pedal is pressed. The
soft pedal will not affect notes that are already playing when it is pressed.
Using Headphones (option)
Connect a pair of headphones to one of the [PHONES] jacks located on
the bottom left of the instrument. When the headphones are plugged into
either of the [PHONES] jacks, the internal speaker system is automatically shut off
Two [PHONES] jacks are provided. You can connect two sets of standard stereo headphones. (If you are using only one pair of headphones,
you can plug them into either jack.)
CAUTION
Do not listen to the instrument at a high volume level through headphones for a
long period of time, or your hearing may be damaged.

Description
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.

C#5
Pure Major

D#5
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.
5
E5
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.
6
F5
Werckmeister
7
F#5
Kirnberger
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.
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.

This instrument can play back files of SMF Format 0 and Format 1 (Standard
MIDI file).
When playing songs copied to a USB flash memory device from a computer or
other device, the songs must be stored either in the USB flash memory’s root
directory or a first-level/second level folder in the root directory. Songs stored in
these locations can be played as song data. Songs stored in third-level folders
created inside a second-level folder cannot be played by this instrument.

When copying song data from computer to USB flash memory, make sure to
save it by using SMF Format 0 and Format 1. Keep in mind that songs recorded
on other devices may use a variety of voices not available on this instrument and
hence may sound different than the original songs.
28 • N1 Owner’s Manual
The SMF (Standard MIDI File) format is one
of the most common and widely compatible
sequence formats used for storing
sequence data. There are two variations:
Format 0 and Format 1. A large number of
MIDI devices are compatible with SMF Format 0, and most commercially available
MIDI sequence data is provided in SMF
Format 0.
The user song is saved as SMF Format 0.

About MIDI
MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a global format standard for performance data transmission and reception between electronic musical instruments.
Connecting musical instruments that support MIDI via MIDI cables enables you to
transfer performance and setting data between multiple musical instruments. Using
MIDI, you can also achieve more advanced performances than using just a single
musical instrument.
Transmits MIDI data.
Receives MIDI data.
You need a dedicated MIDI cable (optional)
to make a MIDI connection.
Since the transmission or reception of MIDI
data can vary depending on the type of
MIDI device, each MIDI device can transmit
or receive only data and commands that are
compatible with other connected MIDI
devices.
Please check the “MIDI Implementation
Chart” on the Data List to find out what
MIDI data and commands your devices can
transmit or receive. Refer to page 5 for the
“Data List.”
Voice demo and piano preset song data are
not transmitted via MIDI.
Connecting to a Computer
Connecting this instrument to a computer using the MIDI connectors enables you to
transfer MIDI data between the instrument and the computer. For example, performance data of this instrument can be sent to and saved on the computer.
You must install a software application on
the computer to be able to transfer MIDI
data between this instrument and a computer.
CAUTION
When connecting the instrument to a computer, first turn off the power to both the instrument
and the computer before connecting any cables. After making connections, turn on the power
to the computer first, then to the instrument.

About MIDI
Local Control On/Off
“Local Control” refers to the fact that, normally, the keyboard of this instrument 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 of this instrument does not play the internal voices,
but the appropriate MIDI information is still transmitted via the MIDI OUT connector when notes are played on the keyboard. At the same time, the internal tone generator responds to MIDI information received via the MIDI IN connector.
While holding down the [FUNCTION] button, press the C6 key. Pressing the C6
key repeatedly toggles between Local Control On and Off.

Troubleshooting
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 9).
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.
A click or pop is heard when the
power is turned on or off.
Electrical current is being applied to the instrument. This is normal.
The overall volume is low, or no
sound is heard.
• The Volume is set too low: set it to an appropriate level using the [MASTER VOLUME] control
(page 10).
• Make sure a pair of headphones is not connected to the headphones jack (page 11).
• Make sure that Local Control (page 34) is on.
The pitch and/or tone of the
Piano Voices in certain ranges do
not sound right.
The Piano Voices attempt to precisely simulate actual piano sounds. However, as a result of sampling algorithms, overtones in some ranges may sound exaggerated, producing a somewhat different pitch or tone. This is normal, and no cause for concern.
Sound is not heard on a particular key.
Keyboard may not function normally if the key was pressed when the power was turned on. Turn
off the power and turn it again to reset the function. Do not touch any keys when turning the
power on (page 10).
Sound input to the AUX IN jacks
is interrupted.
The output volume of the external device connected to this instrument is too low. Increase the
output volume of the external device. The volume level reproduced via this instrument’s speakers
can be adjusted by using the [MASTER VOLUME] control.
The damper pedal has no effect.
• The pedal cord may not be securely connected to the [PEDAL] jack. Be sure to insert the pedal
cord all the way until the metal part of the cord plug disappears from view (page 38).
• The damper pedal was pressed when the power was turned on. This is not a malfunction; press
the pedal again to reset the function.
The USB flash memory device
has hung up (stopped).
• Disconnect the device and connect it to the instrument again.
• The USB flash memory is not compatible with the instrument. Only use the USB flash memory
device whose compatibility has been confirmed by Yamaha (page 26).
* The message list (page 35) is also provided for your reference.
Maintenance
When the surface of the instrument loses luster, wipe the instrument evenly with a cloth moistened with some special piano cleaner.
