GM System Level 1
“GM System Level 1” is an addition to the MIDI standard which ensures that any GM-compatible
music data can be accurately played by any GM-compatible tone generator, regardless of manufacturer.
The GM mark is affixed to all software and hardware products that support GM System Level.
XGlite
As its name implies, “XGlite” is a simplified version of Yamaha’s high-quality XG tone generation format. Naturally, you can play back any XG song data using an XGlite tone generator. However, keep in
mind that some songs may play back differently compared to the original data, due to the reduced set of
control parameters and effects.

USB is an abbreviation for Universal Serial Bus. It is a serial interface for connecting a computer with
peripheral Devices. It allows “hot swapping” (connecting peripheral devices while the power to the
computer is on).
STYLE FILE
The Style File Format is Yamaha’s original style file format which uses a unique conversion system to
provide high-quality automatic accompaniment based on a wide range of chord types.

Setting Up
 Notice for the AC adaptor
Power Requirements
Setting Up
Although the instrument will run either from an
optional AC adaptor or batteries, Yamaha recommends use of an AC adaptor whenever possible. An
AC adaptor is more environmentally friendly than batteries and does not deplete resources.
Using an AC Power Adaptor
1 Make sure that the power of the instrument is off
(display is blank, except for notation staff).
Depending on your particular locale, the AC adaptor
having a separable plug should be used. In this case,
make sure to follow the explanations below for your
safety.
If the plug is accidentally removed from the AC
adaptor
Without touching the metallic section, slide the plug
into place as shown below then push it in completely
until you hear the click sound.
WARNING
• Use the specified adaptor (page 65) only. Using the
wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument
or overheating.
Slide the plug as
indicated.
• This adaptor is for indoor use only. Do not expose the
instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet
conditions, or use it to hold any containers (such as
vases, bottles or glasses) containing liquids which
might spill into any openings.
2 Connect the AC adaptor to the power supply jack.
3 Plug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.
CAUTION
• When setting up the product, make sure that the AC
outlet you are using is easily accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off the
power switch and disconnect the plug from the outlet.
Even when the power switch is turned off, electricity is
still flowing to the product at the minimum level. When
you are not using the product for a long time, make
sure to unplug the power cord from the wall AC outlet.

The shape of the
plug differs depending on locale.
WARNING
• Make sure to keep the plug attached to the AC adaptor.
Using the plug alone can cause electric shock or fire.
• Never touch the metallic section when attaching the plug.
To avoid electric shock, short circuit or damage, also be
careful that there is no dust between the AC adaptor and
plug.
Setting Up
This instrument requires six “AA” size, Alkaline
(LR6)/Manganese (R6) batteries, or rechargeable
nickel-metal hydride batteries (rechargeable Ni-MH
batteries). The Alkaline batteries or rechargeable NiMH batteries are recommended for this instrument,
since other types may result in poorer battery performance.
WARNING
• When using Ni-MH batteries, follow the instructions that
came with the batteries. Use only the specified charger
device when charging.
NOTE
• This instrument cannot charge the batteries. Use only the
specified charger device when charging.
Setting Up
Using Batteries
• Power will be automatically drawn from the AC adaptor if an
AC adaptor is connected while batteries are installed in the
instrument.
 Setting the battery type
After installing the new batteries then turning the
power on, make sure to set the Battery Type to
Rechargeable type or not. For details, refer to page 55.
NOTICE
• Failure to set the Battery Type may shorten the amount of
the battery life. Make sure to set the Battery Type correctly.
 Installing the batteries
1 Make sure that the power of the instrument is off
(display is blank, except for notation staff).
2 Open the battery compartment cover located on the
instrument’s bottom panel.
 Checking the power status on the
display
 Power source on the display
You can confirm the power source at the left corner of
the display.
Only one of these is shown.
3 Insert the six new batteries, being careful to follow
the polarity markings on the inside of the compartment.
GrandPno
When
is shown, the power is supplied from the
AC power adaptor. When
is shown, the power is
supplied from the batteries. When the AC power adaptor is connected with the batteries installed, the power
is supplied from the AC power adaptor and the
indication is shown.
 Remaining battery power indication
You can confirm the approximate amount of remaining battery power at the top left of the display.
4 Replace the compartment cover, making sure that it
locks firmly in place.
Indicates that the power will be turned off
immediately. When rechargeable batteries are
used, this icon flashes before the power is
turned off.
NOTICE
• Connecting or disconnecting the power adaptor with batteries installed may turn the power off, resulting in loss of
data being recorded or transferred at the time.
When battery power becomes too low for proper operation, the volume may be reduced, the sound may be
distorted, and other problems may occur. When this
happens, make sure to replace all batteries with new
ones or already-recharged ones.
Indicates that remaining power is insufficient
for operation. Before the power runs out,
replace all the batteries with new ones, or fully
recharged ones (when using rechargeable
types). Note that the instrument may not work
properly, including unusually soft volume and
poor sound quality when remaining power
becomes low.
Indicates that the remaining power is sufficient.

Connecting Headphones or
External Audio Equipment
Any pair of stereo headphones with a 1/4” stereo
phone plug can be plugged in here for convenient
monitoring. The speakers are automatically shut off
when a plug is inserted into this jack.
The [PHONES/OUTPUT] jack also functions as an
external output. You can connect the [PHONES/OUTPUT] jack to a computer, keyboard amplifier, stereo
system, mixer, tape recorder, or other line-level audio
device to send the instrument’s output signal to that
device.
CAUTION
• Do not use the instrument/device or headphones for a long
period of time at a high or uncomfortable volume level,
since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.
• Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, set all volume levels to the minimum, then turn
off the power for all components.
NOTICE
• When the instrument’s sound is output to an external
device, first turn on the power to the instrument, then to
the external device. Reverse this order when you turn the
power off.

is properly connected to the [SUSTAIN] jack before
turning on the power.
NOTE
• The sustain function does not affect split voices (page 18).
• Do not press the footswitch while turning the power on. Doing
this changes the recognized polarity of the footswitch, resulting in reversed footswitch operation.

then press the [ ] (Standby/On) switch to turn on the
power. While playing the keyboard, adjust the MASTER VOLUME control. To turn off the power, press
the [ ] (Standby/On) switch again for a second.
• When the instrument is not operated for a specified period
of time while connected to an external device such as an
amplifier, speaker or computer, make sure to follow the

the instrument and the connected devices, in order to protect the devices from damage. If you do not want the
power to turn off automatically when a device is connected, disable Auto Power Off.
Setting Up
Turning the Power On/Off
Selecting Operations
CAUTION
• When using a power adaptor, even when the power is off, a
small amount of electricity is still being consumed by the
instrument. When you are not using the instrument for a
long time, make sure to unplug the AC power adaptor from
the wall AC outlet.
Auto Power Off Function
To prevent unnecessary power consumption, this
instrument features an Auto Power Off function that
automatically turns the power off if the instrument is
not operated for a specified period of time. The amount
of time that will elapse before the power is automatically turned off is set by default to 30 minutes.
 To disable the Auto Power Off function:
Turn off the power, then press the [ ] (Standby/On)
switch to turn on the power while holding down the
lowest key.
You can set the time that elapses before Auto Power

(page 55).
NOTE
• Generally, the data and settings are maintained even when the
power is turned off. For details, see page 34.
NOTICE
• Depending on the instrument status, the power may not
turn off automatically, even after the elapse of the specified
period of time. Always turn off the power manually when

Parameters Assigned to the Knobs
This section describes each of the parameters which can be assigned to the Knobs (page 22).
c
FILTER
Filter effects shape the sound by allowing only a specified range of frequencies to pass and/or by producing
a resonance peak at the filter’s “cutoff” frequency. Filter effects can be used to create a range of synthesizerlike sounds.
NOTE
EG (Envelope Generator)
Envelope Generator effects determine how the level of
the sound varies over time. You can make the attack
faster for a more percussive sound or slower for a violin-like sound, for example. Or you can lengthen or
shorten the sustain to best match the music you’re
playing.
• These effects are applied only to the Main/Dual Voices played
on the keyboard.
Level
• Filter effects can sometimes cause distortion in the bass frequencies.
 Knob A: CUTOFF
Adjusts the filter’s cutoff frequency, and therefore the
brightness of the sound. Turning the Knob to the left
makes the sound more muffled or darker, while turning the Knob A to the right makes the sound brighter.
Level
Cutoff Frequency
Frequency
Frequencies in this
range are passed.
Frequencies in this
range are cut off.
 Knob B: RESONANCE
Adjusts the amount of Resonance applied at the filter’s cutoff frequency. Turning the Knob to the right
will increases the Resonance to emphasize the frequencies at the cutoff frequency, and thus “strengthens” the perceived effect of the filter.

EFFECT
 Knob A: REVERB
Reproduces the acoustic ambience of a concert hall or
club. Turning the Knob to the right will increase the
Reverb depth.
 Knob B: CHORUS
Produces a layered “multi-instrument” effect. Turning
the Knob to the right will increase the Chorus depth.
NOTE
• These effects are applied only to the Main/Dual Voices played
on the keyboard.
RELEASE
Time
Key Released
 Knob A: ATTACK
Adjusts the Attack Time (the amount of time it takes
the sound to reach maximum level when a key is
played). Turning the Knob to the right will increase
the Attack Time, thus slowing down the attack rate.
 Knob B: RELEASE
Adjusts the Release Time (the amount of time it takes
for the sound to decay to silence after a key is
released). Turning the Knob to the right will increase
the Release Time, thus make a longer sustain.
NOTE
• These effects are applied only to the Main/Dual Voices played
on the keyboard.

 Knob B: RETRIGGER RATE
While holding down the button of the currently playing Section, rotating this knob will change the Retrigger Rate (the length of the part to be repeated).
Turning right will shorten the length, and vice versa.
 Knob A: ULTRA WIDE STEREO
Lets you play the keyboard with a spacious, dynamic
sound effect that gives you the sensation of hearing
the sound outside of the speakers. By changing the
wide effect type in the Function settings (page 53,
Function 038), you can enhance the stereo image in
different ways.

FILTER
EFFECT
Select the Voice “008 CP80.” Turn Knobs A and B all the way down to hear
the direct, unprocessed sound of the Voice. As you turn Knob B toward the
right, a Chorus effect with modulation is gradually applied to the sound. Turning Knob A to the right adds a Reverb effect that makes you sound like you
are playing in a concert hall.
EG
Select the Voice “170 RsAnPad.” Turning Knob A all the way down makes
the attack faster, and lets you hear the crisp, clear sound of the original Voice.
Turning Knob B all the way down shortens the amount of time for the sound
to decay to silence after a key is released. These knobs let you finely adjust
the Voice to create the appropriate sound for the particular song you’re playing.
STYLE FILTER
Select the Style, “049 EuTrance”. Turn accompaniment on and start Style
playback (page 23). Set Knob B to about 3 o’clock, and Knob A to about 8
o’clock. The overall sound of the style should be a bit muffled, with the drums
emphasized for solid rhythmic impact.

Try This
Select “140 Gemini” (a synth-lead type Voice) or “167 Noise.” (Refer to the
Voice List of the separate Data List). Turning Knobs A or B while playing
gives you the dynamic filter-sweep effects of an analog synthesizer.
SPECIAL
EFFECT
Turn these knobs when playing back an external audio device such as iPhone,
iPod etc. by connecting it to the [AUX IN] jack of this instrument (page 29).
Turn Melody Suppressor on, then turn Knob A to adjust the pan position of
the melody sound of an external audio device to be cancelled (lowered).
When you can cancel (lower) the melody part, try playing the part yourself.
Turning Knob B adjusts the volume balance between an external audio device
and this instrument.
Knob A: ULTRAWIDE STEREO
This lets you create various sounds from simulated mono to wider stereo,
even when playing only a single Voice (Grand Piano, Octave Strings, etc.).
Knob B: RETRIGGER RATE
Select the Section C of the Pattern “001 FrenchDJ” and start Pattern playback.
Turn this knob to the right while holding down the Section button C, and you
can shorter the Retrigger rate like a DJ plays.

USB Flash Memory Operations
By connecting the USB flash memory device to the USB [TO DEVICE] terminal, you can
save the data created on this instrument, such as User Song and parameter settings.
The saved data can be recalled to this instrument again for the future use.
IMPORTANT
• It is recommended to use the Power Adaptor when executing USB flash memory operations, since battery power may
not be reliable enough to last through these crucial operations. When you try executing certain functions, the “Use
Adaptor” indication may appear and the selected function cannot be executed.
Precautions when using the USB [TO
DEVICE] terminal
This instrument features a built-in USB [TO DEVICE]
terminal. When connecting a USB device to the terminal,
be sure to handle the USB device with care. Follow the
important precautions below.
NOTE
• For more information about the handling of USB devices, refer
to the owner’s manual of the USB device.
 Compatible USB devices
Reference
• USB flash memory
Other USB devices such as a computer keyboard or
mouse cannot be used. Although USB devices 1.1 to 3.0
can be used on this instrument, the amount of time for
saving to or loading from the USB device may differ
depending on the type of data or the status of the instrument. 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://download.yamaha.com/
NOTE
• The rating of the USB [TO DEVICE] terminal is a maximum of
5V/500mA. Do not connect USB devices having a rating above
this, since this can cause damage to the instrument itself.
 Connecting USB device
• 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.
NOTICE
• Avoid connecting or disconnecting the USB device while
executing playback/recording and file management operations (such as Save, Copy, Delete and Format), or when
accessing the USB device. Failure to observe this may
result in “freezing” of the operation of the instrument or
corruption of the USB device and the data.
• When connecting then disconnecting the USB device (and
vice versa), make sure to wait a few seconds between the
two operations.
NOTE
• When connecting a USB cable, make sure that the length is
less than 3 meters.

• Although CD-R/RW drives can be used to read data to the
instrument, they cannot be used for saving data.
 The number of USB flash memory to be used
Only one USB flash memory device can be connected to
the USB [TO DEVICE] terminal.
 Formatting USB flash memory
You should format the USB storage device only with this
instrument (page 58). A USB flash memory formatted on
another device may not operate properly.
NOTICE
• The format operation overwrites any previously existing
data. Make sure that the USB flash memory you are formatting does not contain important data.
 To protect your data (write-protect)
To prevent important data from being inadvertently
erased, apply the write-protect provided with each USB
flash memory. If you are saving data to the USB flash
memory, make sure to disable write-protect.
 Turning off the instrument
When turning off the instrument, make sure that the
instrument is NOT accessing the USB flash memory by
playback/recording or file management (such as during

Troubleshooting
Appendix
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
When the instrument is turned on or off, a popping
sound is temporarily produced.
This is normal and indicates that the instrument is receiving electrical power.
When using a mobile phone, noise is produced
Using a mobile phone in close proximity to the instrument may produce interference. To prevent this, turn off the mobile phone or use
it further away from the instrument
The instrument is automatically turned off even if no
operation is done.
This is normal. This occurs due to the Auto Power Off function
(page 15).
The volume is too soft.
The sound quality is poor.
The Style/Pattern/Song/Arpeggio stops unexpectedly or
will not play.
The recorded data of the song, etc. does not play correctly.
The LCD display suddenly goes dark, and all panel settings are reset.
The batteries are low or dead. Replace all six batteries with completely new ones or completely recharged ones, or use the AC
power adaptor.
No sound is produced even when the keyboard is
played, or a Song, Style, or Pattern is being played back.
Check whether a set of headphones or an audio cable is connected to the [PHONES/OUTPUT], or not. When such a connection is made, no sound is output from the speaker of this
instrument.
Check the on/off status of the Local Control (page 54). Normally,
set this parameter to ON.
Appendix
64
The footswitch (for sustain) seems to produce the opposite effect. For example, pressing the footswitch cuts off
the sound and releasing it sustains the sounds.
The polarity of the footswitch is reversed. Make sure that the footswitch plug is properly connected to the SUSTAIN jack before turning on the power.
No sound is produced even when playing keys in the
right hand area of the keyboard, although chords played
in the left hand area are recognized.
Check whether or not the Dictionary function (page 49) is used.
When used, this is normal.
Not all of the Voices seem to sound, or the sound seems
to be cut off, when playing the keyboard, Arpeggio, Style
or Pattern or Song.
You have exceeded 32 simultaneous notes, which is the maximum
polyphony (the maximum amount of notes that can be played
simultaneously) of this instrument. If the Main, Dual, and Split
Voices are being used along with playback of Arpeggio, Style, Pattern or Song, some notes/sounds may be omitted (or “stolen”).
The sound of the Voice changes from note to note.
This is normal. The tone generation method uses multiple recordings (samples) of an instrument across the range of the keyboard;
thus, the actual sound of the Voice may be slightly different from
note to note.
The keyboard performance and playback of Style/Pattern/Song produces an unexpected or inappropriate
sound, and cannot be restored to the normal status.
Using the Knobs can produce dramatic changes in the sound, but
may also produce unexpected or undesired sounds. If you want to
restore the original, normal sound before being changed by the
Knobs, change the Voice, Style, Pattern or Song, or press the
[PORTABLE GRAND] button to reset the panel settings.
The Style, Pattern or Song does not start even when the
[START/STOP] button is pressed. The Arpeggio does
not start even when the note is pressed with the Arpeggio turned on.
Check the on/off status of the External Clock (page 54). Normally,
set this parameter to OFF.
The volume of the Style, Pattern or Song is too low.
Check the volume setting in the Functions (pages 47 and 51).
The chords played in the left hand area cannot be recognized even when the ACMP is turned on.
Check the Split Point setting (page 47). Set this to the appropriate
value.
Style parts other than the Rhythm part produce no
sound.
Check the on/off status of the ACMP (page 23). Make sure to turn
ACMP on.
The Styles numbered 176 or 188–200 produce no
rhythm drum sound even when the [START/STOP] button is pressed.
This is normal. Style numbers 176 and 188–200 have no rhythm
parts, so no rhythm will play. When one of these Styles is selected,
turn ACMP on, then specify the chord in the left hand area to play
Style parts other than the Rhythm part.
The ACMP indicator does not appear on the display
when the [ACMP ON/OFF] button is pressed.
Check the on/off status of the [STYLE] lamp. When using a Style,
press the [STYLE] button to turn on the [STYLE] lamp.
