OFF
LIGHT
For those still developing finger strength. A louder volume is produced
even when playing with a soft touch. LIGHT 2 is lighter than LIGHT 1.
HEAVY
Perfect for those with strong fingers. Requires a heavier touch to
produce a loud volume. HEAVY 2 is heavier than HEAVY 1.
OFF
A constant volume is produced regardless of how hard the keys are
struck. This setting is suitable for sounds that have a fixed dynamic
range such as Organ and Harpsichord.
(1) To change from the standard touch press the Touch button. The LED indicator above the Touch
button will be turned on to indicate that the piano is now using a different touch setting.
(2) Use the Value buttons to change the type of touch while the Touch button is held down.

NOTE:
Touch selection is global for all the preset tones. You cannot have an individual setting for each
tone. Once the power is turned off, the setting will be reset to the standard setting.
LIGHT and HEAVY do not represent the physical weight of the keys. These are settings that affect
the sensitivity of the keys, which determines the volume level in response to the key movement.
4. REGISTRATION

playing back, you can then begin playing (recording) the right hand part from any point in the song
you like.
(7) Press the Play/Stop button after you have finished recording.
PLAYING BACK THE LEFT- AND RIGHT-HAND PARTS SEPARATELY
After you have recorded the left- and right-hand parts (part 1 and part 2) separately, it is possible to
play back the two parts by themselves or together. The following example shows how to play back
only part 2.
(1) Select and press one of the song buttons (Piano/Song 1, E.Piano/Song 2, Organ/Song 3 and
Harpsi/Mallets/Song 4) while pressing the Play/Stop button.
(2) While holding down the Play/Stop button, press the Choir/Pad/Part 1 button. The Choir/Pad/
Part 1 button LED will be turned “off”. If you need to turn part 1 back “on”, press the Choir/Pad/
Part 1 button once again. The Choir/Pad/Part 1 button LED will be turned “on”.
(3) Releasing Play/Stop button will play back only part 2. To turn On/Off part 2, follow the same
procedure described above using the Bass/Part 2 button.
4. DELETING A SONG/PART
This function allows you to delete songs that were not recorded correctly or songs that you do not
want to listen to any more.
(1) Simultaneously hold down the Play/Stop and Rec buttons.
(2) The LEDs will light to show you where songs have been recorded.
While holding down both the Play/Stop and Rec buttons, press the song button that corresponds to
the song you want to delete.
– 18 –
(3) While still holding down both the Play/Stop and Rec buttons, press the part button that you want
to delete and turn the LED of that part button off.
To delete more than one song, repeat (1) to (3).
NOTE:
The total memory capacity of the recorder is approximately 10000 notes. When the recorder reaches
its maximum capacity, the ES3/5 will stop recording at this point. Any data recorded before the
interruption will be retained.
The recorder memory will be saved even after turning off the power.
To delete all recorded songs (reset), first turn the power off and then turn it back on again while
holding down both the Play/Stop and Rec buttons.

1. BRILLIANCE
Brilliance lets you adjust brightness of the preset sounds.
After selecting the “Brilliance” function by pressing the Piano
button, use the Value buttons to change the value to the desired
amount. The LED display shows the brilliance setting with a number. “0” indicates the standard setting. Brilliance can be set between
-10 to +10. Plus settings produce a brighter tone, minus settings
produce a mellower tone.
Brilliance settings are global for all the preset sounds. You can not have an individual setting for
each sound.
2. TUNING
Tuning allows you to adjust the piano’s pitch. You may need to adjust the tuning when you play
with other instruments.
After selecting the “Tuning” function by pressing the E.Piano button,
use the Value buttons to adjust the tuning. A tuning tone can be
heard. The LED display shows the pitch for “A” in Hz (Hertz). For
example, 40.0 stands for 440.0 Hz. The range of adjustment is from
427.0 to 453.0 Hz. The factory preset value is set to the modern
standard A = 440.0 Hz.
– 20 –
3. VOICING
Voicing is a technique used by piano technicians to mold the character of a piano’s sound. The
Voicing function lets you change the ES piano’s tone quality by choosing one of four types of
voicings.
Bright
Produces a brighter tone throughout the entire dynamic
range.
Dynamic
The tone will change dramatically from mellow to bright
with your playing.
Mellow
Produces a mellower tone throughout the entire dynamic
range.
Normal
Produces the normal timbre of an acoustic piano throughout
the entire dynamic range. This is the preset value.
After selecting the “Voicing” function by pressing the Organ button,
use the Value buttons to select a desired voicing type. The LED
display shows the type of voicing currently selected.
The current voicing selection is global for all the preset tones. You can not have an individual
setting for each tone.
NOTE:
While voicing is a technique used for optimizing the tone of an acoustic piano, this function can be
used on all the sounds on the ES piano.
4. SYMPATHETIC RESONANCE
When the sustain pedal is depressed on an acoustic piano, all the dampers are lifted up allowing the
strings to vibrate freely. When you play a note or chord on the piano with the sustain pedal depressed
not only will the strings for the notes you played vibrate but other strings will vibrate in sympathetic
resonance. The Sympathetic Resonance function simulates this phenomenon. You can select from
three levels of resonance.
Off
no resonance.
Normal
simulates the natural resonance characteristics of an
acoustic piano.
– 21 –
Deep
Produces a more intense resonance.
After selecting the “Sympathetic Resonance” function by pressing
the Harpsi/Mallets button, use the Value buttons to select the desired
setting.
5. TEMPERAMENT
The ES3/5 offers not only equal temperament (the modern standard) but also immediate access to
temperaments popular during the Renaissance and Baroque periods. It should be interesting and
educational to try some of the different temperaments, although the equal temperament is dominant
today.
After selecting the “Temperament” function by pressing the Strings
button, use the Value buttons to select your desired temperament.
The LED display shows the type of temperament currently selected.
BRIEF EXPLANATION OF TEMPERAMENTS
EQUAL TEMPERAMENT (PIANO ONLY)
This is the default temperament. If a piano sound is selected the
tuning is stretched like an acoustic piano (EQUAL TEMPERAMENT). If any other type of sound is selected the tuning will be
EQUAL (FLAT). An explantion of EQUAL TEMPERAMENT and
EQUAL TEMPERAMENT (FLAT) is provided later in this section.
NOTE:
If a piano sound is used in a layer with any other sound then both sounds will use the EQUAL
TEMPERAMENT (Stretched) tuning.
MERSENNE PURE TEMPERAMENT (major)
MERSENNE PURE TEMPERAMENT (Minor)
This temperament, which eliminates dissonance’s for thirds and
fifths is still popular for choral music because of its perfect harmony.
You need to be aware what key you are playing in with this temperament. Any key modulation will result in dissonance’s. When you
play music in a particular key, you need to match the key of the
temperament as well. When playing in a major key select Pure
(Major) and when playing in a minor key select Pure (minor).
PYTHAGOREAN TEMPERAMENT
This temperament, which uses mathematical ratios to eliminate
dissonance for fifths, is very limited for use with chords, but it
produces very characteristic melodic lines.
– 22 –
MEANTONE TEMPERAMENT
This temperament, which uses a mean between a major and minor
whole tone to eliminate dissonance for thirds, was devised to eliminate the lack of consonance’s experienced with certain fifths for the
Mersenne pure temperament. It produces chords that are more
beautiful than those with the equal temperament.
WERCKMEISTER III TEMPERAMENT
KIRNBERGER III TEMPERAMENT
These two temperaments are placed in between Meantone and
Pythagorean. For music with few accidentals, this temperament
produces the beautiful chords of the mean tone, but as accidentals
increase, the temperament produces the characteristic melodies of
the Pythagorean temperament. It is used primarily for classical music
written in the Baroque era to revive the original characteristics.
EQUAL TEMPERAMENT (FLAT)
This is “unstretched” equal temperament that divides the scale into
twelve equal semitones. This produces the same chordal intervals in
all twelve keys, and has the advantage of limitless modulation of the
key. However the tonality of each key becomes less characteristic
and no chord is in pure consonance.
EQUAL TEMPERAMENT
This is the most popular piano temperament. The hearing ability of a
human is uneven and is not as accurate with high frequency and low
frequency as it is with the middle range. This temperament’s tuning
is stretched to compensate for this so the sound will be heard naturally to the ears. This “Stretched” equal temperament is a practical
variation of the “unstretched” equal temperament which was invented on a mathematical basis.
Limitless modulation of the key became available only after the invention of Equal temperament.
When we use a temperament other than Equal temperament, we must carefully choose the key
signature to play in. For example, if the song you are going to play is written in D major, choose
“D” as the temperament key by pressing any “D” key on the keyboard. The LED display shows the
currently selected key signature. Press either Touch or Transpose button to exit the Function Mode
before you start playing.
NOTE:
Changing the key of the temperament will only change the “balance” of the tuning, the pitch of the
keyboard remains unchanged. Use the Tuning or Transpose functions to change the pitch of the
whole keyboard.
– 23 –
6. MEMORY BACKUP
This function allows the ES3/5 to save the user-definable settings when the power is turned off.
Once written to the memory, the saved settings will be recalled every time you turn the power on.
After selecting the “Memory Backup” function by pressing the
Choir/Pad button, use the Value buttons to select “user” or “restore”.
Then press the Rec button to write the settings. The LED display
briefly shows “Wrt” and the memory backup is executed.
7. LOWER OCTAVE SHIFT
This allows the octave of the lower part to be be shifted up one, two, or three octaves higher when
you use the split function.
After selecting the “Lower Octave Shift” function by pressing the
Bass button, use the Value buttons to select your desired shift range.
The LED display shows how many octaves the lower part is shifted
up. Lower Octave Shift can be set between 0 to 3.
8. MIDI CHANNEL
This determines on which MIDI channel the ES3/5 will exchange MIDI information with an external
MIDI instrument or a personal computer.
After selecting the “MIDI Channel” function by pressing the Piano
button, use the Value buttons to select your MIDI channel. The LED
display shows the currently selected channel number .
In order to exchange MIDI information with another MIDI instrument, you must first set the two
connected instruments to the same channel.
When the power is first turned on, the ES3/5 always selects “on1” which means omni on, channel
1. If you change it to 1 through 16, omni automatically turns off.
9. TRANSMITTING PROGRAM CHANGE NUMBER
This function allows the ES3/5 to transmit program change numbers beyond the 21 (ES3) or 28
(ES5) pre-defined numbers transmitted by the Sound buttons. Using this function, you can send
any number from 1 to 128.
After selecting the “Transmitting Program Chnage Number” function by pressing the E.Piano button, use the Value buttons to select
your desired number. The LED display shows the program change
number. To send the program change number, press both Value
buttons simultaneously.
– 24 –
10. MIDI LOCAL CONTROL ON/OFF
This determines whether the ES piano’s sound will be played from the piano’s keyboard (“ON”) or
only from an external MIDI instrument (“OFF”).
Even with local control “off” the piano’s keyboard will still transmit to an external MIDI instrument
or personal computer.
After selecting the “Local Control” function by pressing the Organ
button, use the Value buttons to turn Local Control on and off. The
LED display shows whether Local Control is on or off.
11. TRANSMIT PROGRAM CHANGE ON/OFF
This determines whether or not the ES3/5 will transmit program change information when pressing
the Sound buttons. When this is turned on, pressing the Sound buttons will send the program change
numbers as listed in page 29.
After selecting the “Transmit Program Change On/Off” function by
pressing the Harpsi/Mallets button, use the Value buttons to turn
Transmit Program Change on and off. The LED display shows
whether or not program change numbers will be transmitted.
When the power is first turned on, the Transmit Program Change On/Off function is always “on”.
12. TURNING MULTI-TIMBRAL MODE ON/OFF
Multi-timbral mode allows the ES3/5 to receive data on more than one MIDI channel simultaneously.
In this mode, the ES3/5 can play different musical parts with different sounds for each part.
Multi-Timbral On
This is a flexible 16 part multi-timbral setup. You can turn individual MIDI channels on and
off, and assign any program number to any channel in the way you like.
Multi-Timbral Off
This turns off the multi-timbral capability. Only one MIDI channel will be active and only
the preset sound currently selected will be heard when a MIDI signal is received.
After selecting the “Multi-Timbre” function by pressing the Strings
button, use the Value buttons to turn Multi-Timbre on and off. The
LED display shows the selected Multi-timbral mode.
When the power is first turned on, the Multi-Timbral Mode setting is always off.
– 25 –
13. CHANNEL MUTE
This determines which MIDI channels are activated to receive when used with Multi-Timbral On.
You can activate or deactivate each of the 16 channels individually.
After selecting the “Channel Mute” function by pressing the Choir/
Pad button, press one of the 16 left most white keys to select the
desired channel. Then use the Value buttons to turn them on and off.
Channel 1
NOTE:
When the Multi-Timbral mode is set to off, the “Channel Mute” function is not available.
14. LOWER PEDAL ON/OFF
This determines if the sustain pedal will be active for lower sound when in Split mode. The default
setting is Off which means the sustain pedal is not active the lower sound.
After selecting the “Lower Pedal” function by pressing the Bass
button, use the Value buttons to turn it on and off. The LED display
shows whether Lower Pedal is on or off.
FACTORY RESET
If you want to recall the original factory settings, turn the power off and then turn it back again
while holding down both the Touch and Transpose buttons at the same time.

MIDI
The term MIDI is an acronym for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, an international standard
for connecting synthesizers, sequencers (digital recorders) and other electronic instruments so that
they can exchange performance data.
The ES3/5 is equipped with two MIDI jacks for exchanging data: MIDI IN and MIDI OUT. Each
uses a special cable with a DIN connector.
MIDI IN : For receiving note, program change and other data.
MIDI OUT : For sending note, program change and other data.
MIDI EXAMPLES
(1) Connection to another MIDI compatible keyboard or sound generator module
When connected as shown in the illustration, data on how the digital piano is played (which keys
are struck) can be sent to another MIDI instrument. Plus, the sound from the ES3/5 can be layered
over the sound of the other instrument.

(2) Connection to an external sequencer
When connected as shown in the illustration, you can record songs played on the ES3/5 with a
sequencer, and use the ES3/5’s sounds (such as piano, harpsichord and vibraphone, etc.) controlled
by the ES3/5’s Multi-Timbral Mode function to create a multi-layer MIDI recording.
