Using the Digital Piano’s
Pedals
Your Digital Piano comes equipped with three pedals:
damper, soft, and sostenuto
Disabling Damper Noise Output
Damper noise is a slight metallic ringing sound that is
generated as the damper of an acoustic piano separates
from the wires pedal when the damper pedal is
pressed. The damper resonance of your Digital Piano
normally includes damper noise, but you can perform
the procedure below to disable its output. Damper
noise can be applied to the six GRAND PIANO tones
and MODERN.
1.
Soft pedal
Damper pedal
Sostenuto pedal
Pedal Functions
 Damper Pedal
Pressing the damper pedal while playing will cause the
notes you play to reverberate for a long time. Halfpedal operation (pressing the pedal part way) is also
supported.
• When one of the GRAND PIANO tones or the
MODERN piano tone is selected, using the damper
pedal adds damper resonance that is similar to that
produced on an acoustic grand piano.
While holding down the FUNCTION button,
press the Damper Noise keyboard key.
• For details about using the keyboard keys for
settings, see “Keyboard Keys Used for Configuring
Settings” (page EN-21).
• Each press of the key toggles the setting and causes
the Digital Piano to beep as described below.
– Long beep: Damper noise output disabled
– Short beep: Damper noise output enabled
 Sostenuto Pedal
Only the notes of the keys that are depressed when this
pedal is pressed are sustained until the pedal is
released.
 Soft Pedal
Pressing this pedal while playing suppresses notes
played on the keyboard after the pedal was pressed,
and makes them sound softer.
NOTE
• If pressing the pedal does not produce the desired
effect, it could mean that the pedal cord is not
connected properly. Refer to step 1 under “To
connect the cable” (page EN-34).

Playing with Different Tones
Using the Metronome
1.
5.
Press the METRONOME button.

Example: To set a tempo of 20, press keys 0, 2, and
then 0.
6.
Press the METRONOME button to turn off
the metronome.
NOTE
• You can specify a beat value in the range of 0 to 9
(beats per measure). A chime will sound on the first
beat of each measure, and clicks will sound for the
remaining beats. Specifying 0 plays a straight click,
without any chime. This setting lets you practice with
a steady beat.
4.
Release the FUNCTION button and then hold
it down again as you press the
METRONOME TEMPO keyboard key.
• Keep the FUNCTION button depressed as you
advance to step 5.
EN-10
• If you used the numeric input (0 to 9) keyboard keys
to input beat and/or tempo values and the values
are within the allowable setting ranges, the Digital
Piano will emit a high pitch beep when you release
the FUNCTION button. If a value is outside the
allowable range, a low-pitch sound will be emitted.
• You could also use the procedure below in place of
steps 4 and 5 of the above procedure to specify a
tempo value.
– While holding down the FUNCTION button, use
the TEMPO keyboard keys to specify a tempo
value in the range of 20 to 255 (beats per minute).
• In step 5 of the above procedure, pressing the + and
– keys at the same time will set the tempo of the
Concert Play lesson song or Music Library song (in
the case of a recorded song, the tempo when the
song was recorded) that was last selected on the
Digital Piano.

• Starting a new recording deletes any data that was
previously recorded in memory.
• Should power fail during recording, all of the data in
the track you are recording will be deleted.

consists of two tracks: Track 1 and Track 2. You can
record each track separately and then combine them so
they play back together as a single song.

Transferring Song Data with a
Computer
Use the procedures in this section to transfer Recorder
memory data to a computer for storage, and to load
songs to user song memory (Music Library 61 to 70).
IMPORTANT!
• Turning off the Digital Piano while data is being
saved or loaded can cause all data currently stored
in Digital Piano memory (recorded songs, etc.) to be
deleted. Take care so power is not turned off
accidentally during data save and load operations. If
data is deleted, it will take longer than normal for the
Digital Piano to power up the next time you turn it on
(page EN-5).

Assembling the Stand
PREPARATION
• Before starting assembly, check to make sure that
you have all the parts shown below.
• This stand does not include any of the tools required
for assembly. It is up to you to prepare a large
Philips head (+) screwdriver for assembly.
B
A
*CAUTION
• To assemble the stand, at least two persons should
work together on a flat surface.
• Take care that you do not pinch your fingers
between parts when assembling them.
• Spread felt or some other type of cloth under the
bench to avoid direct contact between the rubber at
the tips of the legs and the floor surface. Direct
contact between the rubber and flooring can cause
discoloration, marring, or other damage to the
flooring.
• When placing the Digital Piano on the floor, be sure
to place it on something soft (a blanket, cushion, etc.)
Do not place the Digital Piano directly onto the floor.

IMPORTANT!
• Do not remove the tape securing the keyboard cover
in place until assembly is complete. Removing the
tape can cause the keyboard cover to open and
close during assembly, creating the risk of personal
injury to your hands and fingers.
• Do not use any screws other than those that come
with the stand. Doing so risks damage to the stand
and/or Digital Piano.
• You can find the screws in a plastic bag inside of the
packing material.
• If anything is missing or damaged, contact your local
CASIO service provider.

Removing the Protective Tape
from the Keyboard
Connecting Headphones
Front
PHONES/OUTPUT jacks
Protective tape is affixed to the front edges of the
keyboard keys to protect them during shipment.
Remove the protective tape before using the Digital
Piano.
Stereo standard plug
• Peel off the tape by pulling carefully towards you as
shown in the illustration.
• If some keys seem to be raised up after you remove
the tape, press down to return them to their normal
positions.
Connect commercially available headphones to the
PHONES/OUTPUT jacks. Connecting headphones to
either of the PHONES/OUTPUT jack cuts off output to
the speakers, which means you can practice even late at
night without bothering others. To protect your
hearing, make sure that you do not set the volume level
too high when using headphones.
NOTE
• Be sure to push the headphones plug into the
PHONES/OUTPUT jacks as far as it will go. If you
don’t, you may hear sound from only one side of the
headphones.
• If the plug of the headphones you are using does not
match the PHONES/OUTPUT jacks, use the
applicable commercially available adaptor plug.
• If you are using headphones that require an adaptor
plug, make sure you do not leave the adaptor
plugged in when you unplug the headphones. If you
do, nothing will sound from the speakers when you
play.

you connect to the Digital Piano is a stereo standard
plug. A monaural standard plug will result in output of
only one of the two stereo channels. Normally, you
should set the input selector of the audio equipment to
the terminal where the Digital Piano is connected
(AUX IN, etc.) Adjust volume using the Digital Piano’s
VOLUME controller.

Connect the connecting cord* to one of the types of
amplifiers shown in Figure .
Adjust volume using the Digital Piano’s VOLUME

Use only accessories that are specified for use with this
Digital Piano.
Use of unauthorized accessories creates the risk of fire,
electric shock, and personal injury.
NOTE
IMPORTANT!
• Whenever connecting a device to the Digital Piano,
first use the VOLUME controller to set the volume to
a low level. After connecting, you can adjust the
volume to the level you want.
• Whenever you connect any device to the Digital
Piano, be sure to read the user documentation that
