CP5/CP50 Owner’s Manual
Principal Features of the CP5 & CP50
 Authentic acoustic- and electric-piano sounds of unparalleled quality
Your CP5 or CP50 is packed with stunning acoustic- and electric-piano sounds based on voices from Yamaha’s
acclaimed CP1 Stage Piano. Building on our decades of accomplishment in the production of stage pianos, we have
delicately adjusted of the sound of each individual key, realized perfect balance over the full length of the keyboard, and
created full-bodied piano tones ideal for solo performances and ever-present sounds well suited for playing within an
ensemble. Furthermore, by analyzing and replicating the sound-producing mechanisms of classic electric pianos using
cutting-edge technologies, we have been able to achieve an extremely smooth response in the CP5 and CP50
keyboards. And through the modeling both of original pre-amplifiers and of external effectors responsible for the rich
variety of tones indispensable to quality sound production, we have faithfully reproduced many electric piano sounds
now regarded as classics.
 Wealth of voices and effects for greater flexibility in live performances
In addition to piano voices, your CP5 or CP50 also offers a diverse selection of other musical instruments, such as
strings, guitar, and bass. And with many versatile effects such as choruses and flangers also built-in, you can easily
create a rich tapestry of different sounds for your stage performances.
 Weighted hammer-action, 88-key keyboards that feel just like the real thing
Featuring synthetic ivory keytops, the CP5’s 88-key wooden keyboard effortlessly reproduces the feel of acoustic and
classic electric pianos; meanwhile, the weighted hammer-action design employed by the CP50’s 88-key keyboard is
virtually indistinguishable from an actual piano.
 Customize function for totally original piano sounds
Allowing you to freely build your own acoustic and electric pianos from a rich selection of voices, amplifiers, and
effectors, the Customize function makes easy work of recreating standard vintage settings or realizing unique new
sounds.
 Extremely simple overlaying and division of keyboard zones
Using your stage piano’s layering and splitting functions, you can easily layer the various parts that make up each
Performance or assign them to specific left-hand and right-hand zones.
 Record and playback functions for MIDI and audio
Your CP5 or CP50 can record keyboard performances as MIDI data and store them internally for playback whenever
required; alternatively, you can also record these performances as audio data on a USB flash-memory device. What’s
more, these and other Wave files from a USB flash-memory device can also be played back as backing tracks for your
performances.
 Convenient master-keyboard function
Using your stage piano’s master-keyboard function, which has been specially crafted for use in live-performance
settings, up to four virtual zones can be setup along the keyboard and assigned to four different tone generators,
including other MIDI instruments.
 Microphone input also supported (CP5 only)
Also fitted with a [MIC INPUT] jack for direct connection of a microphone, the CP5 is ideal those who like to sing and play
at the same time.

Connecting Audio Equipment
Connecting Audio Equipment
Your CP5 or CP50 does not come with built-in speakers. In order to hear what you play, therefore, you will need to
connect it to a stereo system or to an amplifier and speakers. You can also plug a set of headphones into the
headphones jack in order to monitor the sound directly. External audio equipment can be connected in a number of
different ways, some of which are described below. Based on the diagrams shown, choose the connection format most
suited to your setup.
CAUTION
To prevent hearing loss, avoid using headphones at high volumes for extended periods of time.
Setting Up
NOTICE
Whenever connecting external audio equipment, ensure that the volume on all devices is turned fully down.
Output via Amplifiers or Powered Speakers
Using a pair of keyboard amplifiers or powered speakers, you can accurately reproduce the full richness of CP5 or CP50
sounds, including pan and other widening effects. In this type of situation, connections to the amplifiers or speakers
should be made via the unbalanced [L/MONO] and [R] output jacks on the rear panel. If you would prefer to monitor your
playing using a single keyboard amplifier or powered speaker, the unbalanced [L/MONO] output jack should be used.

Output via a Mixer
It is commonplace for mixers to be connected to stage pianos used in recording and live performance environments. In
addition to the unbalanced jacks mentioned above, the CP5 also features a pair of professional-use, balanced XLR
connectors that prevent unwanted noise from entering output signals. When connecting a mixer, we recommend that
these balanced [L] and [R] output connectors be used. As the CP50 does not feature balanced output connectors, the
unbalanced [L/MONO] and [R] output jacks should be used in such a case.

Using Performances
Your CP5 or CP50 comes packed with a wide range of different presets, and these are referred to as Performances.
Designed to allow multiple voices to be sounded together, each Performance comprises a number of parts and a Reverb
block, which applies a common reverberation effect to the parts. Furthermore, Master Compressor and Master Equalizer
blocks, which affect all Performances in the same way, can also be used to ensure that the sound of your CP5 or CP50 is
always perfectly matched to its playing environment. For more details on Performances, refer to the Reference Manual
pdf document.

Using Performances
Your CP5 or CP50 can store Performances in three main memory areas — namely, Preset Performance memory, User
Performance memory, and an External Performance memory. The specific roles of each of these memory areas are
described below.
 Preset Performance Memory
Accessed using the [PRE] button, the Preset Performance memory is used to hold the Performances that come readymade with your CP5 or CP50. This memory area comprises three individual memory banks — PRE1, PRE2, and PRE3 —
furthermore, four memory groups (A, B, C, and D) are contained within each memory bank, and each one of these
groups can hold ten Performances.
 User Performance Memory
Accessed using the [USER] button, the User Performance memory is used to store original Performances that you have
created. This memory area comprises three individual memory banks — USR1, USR2, and USR3 — furthermore, four
memory groups (A, B, C, and D) are contained within each memory bank, and each one of these groups can hold ten
Performances.
 External Performance Memory
Accessed using the [EXT] button, External Performance memories are read into your CP5 or CP50 from a USB flashmemory device. As with the User Performance memory, each External Performance memory can be used to save original
Performances that you create. This memory area comprises three individual memory banks — EXT1, EXT2, and EXT3 —
furthermore, four memory groups (A, B, C, and D) are contained within each memory bank, and each one of these groups
can hold ten Performances. In order to use an External Performance memory stored on a USB flash-memory device, the
device must be plugged into the CP5 or CP50, and the stage piano must have loaded the memory into its DRAM.
Quick Start Guide
NOTE For more details on Performance memory areas, refer to the Reference Manual pdf document.

Precautions when using the USB TO DEVICE port
Quick Start Guide
Whenever plugging a USB flash-memory device into your stage piano’s USB TO DEVICE port, be sure to handle it with care and
follow the important precautions below.
NOTE For more details on how to use your USB flash-memory device, see the owner’s manual that came with it.
 Supported USB memory devices
Only USB memory devices of the flash-memory variety can be used with your CP5 or CP50. Furthermore, this stage piano does
not necessarily support all commercially available USB flash-memory devices, and Yamaha cannot guarantee normal operation
with every such device on the market. Before purchasing a USB flash-memory device for use with your stage piano, therefore,
please visit the following web page to determine whether or not it is supported:
http://www.yamahasynth.com/
Working with USB flash-memory devices
When you plug a USB flash-memory device into your stage piano, you can use it to save data that you have created and to load
previously-saved data back into the instrument.
 Formatting a USB flash-memory device
Certain types of USB flash-memory device must be formatted before they can be used with your stage piano. Whenever you plug
such a device into the USB TO DEVICE port, a message prompting you to format it will be displayed on-screen. (See the
Reference Manual pdf document for more details.)
NOTICE
When a USB flash-memory device is formatted, all of its data will be permanently erased. Before formatting a memory device,
therefore, ensure that it contains no irreplaceable data.
 Write protection
Certain types of USB flash-memory device can be write-protected to prevent their data from being accidentally erased. If your
USB memory contains irreplaceable data, therefore, we suggest that you use write protection to prevent accidental erasure.
Meanwhile, if you need to save data on a USB flash-memory device, be sure to disable its write protection.
 Removing USB flash-memory devices
Before removing a USB flash-memory device from the USB TO DEVICE port, ensure that the stage piano is not in the process of
accessing it to save or load data.
NOTICE
Care should be taken to avoid plugging in and removing USB flash-memory devices with excessive frequency. If this precaution is
not observed, your stage piano may freeze and cease operating. In addition, a USB flash-memory device should never be removed
before it has been fully mounted or while it is being accessed by the stage piano in order to save or load data. Data within the flash
memory or on the instrument itself may be corrupted as a result of such action, and there is also a danger that the USB flashmemory device itself could be permanently damaged.

Using Knobs 1 to 3 to Change the Sound
Function of Assignable Knobs
Knobs 1 to 3, which are located in front of your stage piano’s display, can be assigned to various parameters from the
individual blocks making up the current Performance. In specific terms, parameters from each Pre-Amplifier block, from
each Modulation Effect block, from each Power-Amplifier / Compressor block (CP5 only), and from the Reverb block can
be freely assigned to these knobs; furthermore, each Performance can have a different set of assignments. On the
Performance screen, identifiers may be displayed to the left of assigned parameters to notify you of the corresponding
parts. For example, if a parameter assignment were identified as being L1-Dcy, the knob in question would control the
Decay parameter (i.e., decay time) from the LEFT1 part. In cases where the assigned parameter is identical for all parts,
no such indicator is displayed. By turning Knobs 1 to 3, you can change the values set for the corresponding parameters
in order to modify the sound of the currently selected Performance.

 [SUSTAIN] foot-switch jack
The [SUSTAIN] foot-switch jack is used for connecting the FC3 foot pedal that came with your stage piano. Notes played
while this pedal is pressed will be sustained longer than normal after you release the corresponding keys. This pedal
also supports half-damper playing, with the degree to which the pedal is pressed controlling how long the notes are
sustained. The half-damper function can be turned on or off using the SusPedal parameter (Sustain Pedal) from Page 3
of the Utility screen. For more details, refer to the Reference Manual pdf document.
NOTE An optional FC4 or FC5 foot switch can also be connected to the [SUSTAIN] foot-switch jack; however, only the FC3 foot pedal supports halfdamper playing. Whenever one of these optional pedals is to be used, the SusPedal parameter from the Utility screen must be set accordingly.
 [ASSIGNABLE] foot-switch jack
The [ASSIGNABLE] foot-switch jack is used for connecting an optional FC4 or FC5 foot switch, which can then be used
in order to intuitively control one of many CP5 or CP50 parameters. The assignment of these parameters is carried out on
Pages 3 to 5 of the Common Settings screen. For more details, refer to the Reference Manual pdf document.
NOTE An FC4 or FC5 connected to the [ASSIGNABLE] foot-switch jack can be used to start and stop the backing track. In order to do so, navigate to

Integrating with Other MIDI Devices
Integrating with Other MIDI Devices
You can connect your stage piano's MIDI [IN], [OUT], and [THRU] connectors to MIDI connectors on other MIDI devices
using standard MIDI cables (sold separately). The following section will describe how external MIDI devices connected
in this way can then be controlled from your CP5 or CP50.
NOTE Even when your CP5 or CP50 is connected to other MIDI devices, you will need to connect a stereo system or an amplifier and speakers in order
to hear the sound produced. Alternatively, a pair of headphones can always be connected for direct monitoring of the stage piano. For details, see
Connecting Audio Equipment from the Setting Up section (page 15).
NOTICE
Whenever connecting external audio equipment, ensure that the volume on all devices is turned fully down. From this condition, start by
turning on devices that send MIDI data, then turn on those that receive MIDI data, and finally, turn on any external audio equipment (with
amplifiers or powered speakers being turned on last of all). Meanwhile, when shutting down your system, start by turning the volume of
all devices fully down, and then turn off devices in the reverse order to turning on.
Playing a Synth from the Stage Piano

Activating & Deactivating Local Control
Normally, when playing your CP5 or CP50 in order to record its MIDI messages on a computer, those messages are sent
directly to the computer, and from there, they are returned to the instrument in order to play the built-in tone generator. If
local control of the stage piano is activated at this time (by setting the LocalSw parameter on Page 5 of the Utility screen
to “on”), the data produced by playing the keyboard will also be sent directly to the tone generator, and as a result, the
direct and returned messages will overlap, causing each note to be played twice in quick succession. Most applications
allow MIDI Thru to be turned on or off, and therefore, you can setup your system in either of the following ways to play
and record in comfort without each note being heard twice.

 Flash ROM
As its name suggests, Read Only Memory (ROM) is a type of memory designed specifically for reading of data, and as
such, it cannot usually be written to. Flash ROM differs from the conventional type in that it can be overwritten — allowing
you to store and delete data. Furthermore, the content of flash ROM is maintained even when the power is turned off.
 DRAM
The term Random Access Memory (RAM) is used to describe memory designed for both reading and writing of data.
RAM is categorized into two different types based on the way in which content is stored — namely, static RAM (SRAM)
and dynamic RAM (DRAM). It is the latter type that is used for the Edit Buffer in your CP5 or CP50. As the data stored in
DRAM is lost whenever the power is turned off, any important content should be transferred to flash ROM (i.e., User
Memory) before doing so.
 Edit Buffer & User Memory
The name Edit Buffer is given to an area of memory used to edit a single Performance or system setting. As this memory
area is non-permanent, its content must be stored in User Memory if it is to be reused. Furthermore, whenever a new
Performance is selected, the entire content of the Edit Buffer will be overwritten with its data. It is important, therefore, that
any Performance in the Edit Buffer be stored as soon as you are happy with it.
CP5/CP50 Owner’s Manual

Storing Settings
Storing Settings
When you have finished editing a Performance, you can either store it within the stage piano’s User Performance memory
or save it in an External Performance memory. Master Compressor, Transpose, and Utility settings, on the other hand, are
stored within User Memory as part of the instrument's system settings. Furthermore, the Bulk Dump function can be used
to transfer the Performance currently being edited in the Edit Buffer to a connected MIDI device or DAW application for
safekeeping.
NOTE The Common Settings screen can be used to change the name of the Performance currently being edited. For more details, refer to the Reference
Manual pdf document.
NOTICE
Whenever you store a Performance, the content at the selected location will be overwritten. It is wise, therefore, to regularly create
backup copies of important Performances on a USB flash-memory device or the like.
