Note the following precautions whenever you want to ensure
that current keyboard settings and memory contents are not
lost.
• Make sure the keyboard is being supplied power through
the AC adaptor before replacing its batteries.
• Before unplugging the AC adaptor, make sure that fresh
batteries are loaded in the keyboard.
Make sure that keyboard power is turned off before replacing
batteries or unplugging the AC adaptor.

You can connect an optional sustain pedal, available at
RadioShack website (www.RadioShack.com) or call 1-800-The
Shack (843-7422), to the SUSTAIN/ASSIGNABLE jack to
enable the capabilities described below.
For details on how to select the pedal function you want, see
“SUSTAIN/ASSIGNABLE JACK (Default: SUS)” on page E53.
SUSTAIN/ASSIGNABLE JACK
Audio Equipment (Figure 2)
Connect the keyboard to a audio equipment using a
commercially available connecting cord with a standard plug
on one end and two PIN plugs on the other end. Note that
the standard plug you connect to the keyboard must be a
stereo plug, otherwise you will be able to output only one of
stereo channels. In this configuration, you normally set the
input selector of the audio equipment to the terminal (usually
marked AUX IN or something similar) where the cord from
the keyboard is connected. See the user documentation that
comes with your audio equipment for full details.
Musical Instrument Amplifier (Figure 3)
Use a commercially available connecting cord to connect the
keyboard to a musical instrument amplifier.
NOTE
• Be sure to use a connecting cord that has a stereo
standard plug on the end you connect to the keyboard,
and a connector that provides dual channel (left and
right) input to the amplifier to which you are connecting.
The wrong type of connector at either end can cause
one of the stereo channels to be lost.
When connected to a musical instrument amplifier, set the
volume of the keyboard to a relatively low level and make
output volume adjustments using the amplifier’s controls.
Sustain Pedal
• With piano tones, depressing the pedal causes notes to
linger, much like a piano’s damper pedal.
• With organ tones, depressing the pedal causes notes to
continue to sound until the pedal is released.
Sostenuto Pedal
• As with the sustain pedal function described above,
depressing the sostenuto pedal causes notes to be sustained.
• This difference between a sostenuto pedal and sustain pedal
is the timing. With a sostenuto pedal, you press the keys
and then depress the pedal before you release the keys.
• Only the notes that are sounding when the pedal is
depressed are sustained.
Soft Pedal
Depressing the pedal softens the sound of the notes being
played.

Basic Operations
Polyphony
The term polyphony refers to the maximum number of notes
you can play at the same time. The keyboard has 32-note
polyphony, which includes the notes you play as well as the
rhythms and auto-accompaniment patterns that are played
by the keyboard. This means that when a rhythm or autoaccompaniment pattern is being played by the keyboard, the
number of notes (polyphony) available for keyboard play is
reduced. Also note that some of the tones offer only 16-note
polyphony.
• When rhythm or auto accompaniment is playing, the
number of sounds simultaneously played is reduced.
Turning the Key Light System On
and Off
Use the following procedure when you want to turn the key
light system on or off.
To turn the key light system on and off
1
Press the KEY LIGHT button to toggle the key light
system on and off.
• The KEY LIGHT indicator disappears when the key
light system is turned off.
Digital Sampling
A number of the tones that are available with this keyboard
have been recorded and processed using a technique called
digital sampling. To ensure a high level of tonal quality,
samples are taken in the low, mid, and high ranges and then
combined to provide you with sounds that are amazingly
close to the originals. You may notice very slight differences
in volume or sound quality for some tones when you play
them at different positions on the keyboard. This is an
unavoidable result of multiple sampling, and it is not a sign
of malfunction.

Targeted Practice
3-Step Lesson
The 3-step lesson feature takes you through the three distinct
steps described below to help you learn to play tunes on the
keyboard.
Step 1 – Master the timing.
In this step, pressing any key on the keyboard plays the
correct note, so you can concentrate on getting the timing
right without worrying about playing the right note.
Accompaniment (left-hand part) waits until you press a key
before proceeding to the next phrase.
Step 2 – Master the notes.
In this step, you use the display to learn which fingers you
should use and how loud or soft to play, and the key light
system to learn which keyboard keys to press.
Accompaniment (left-hand part) waits until your play the
correct note, so you can learn at your own pace.
Step 3 – Play at normal speed.
This is where you enjoy actually playing the tunes you learn
using Step 1 and Step 2. The key light system still shows you
which keyboard keys to press, but accompaniment proceeds
at normal speed regardless of whether or not you play the
correct notes.

FULL RANGE CHORD
This accompaniment method provides a total of 38 different

of three or more keys that matches a FULL RANGE CHORD
pattern to be a chord. Any other input (that is not a FULL
RANGE CHORD pattern) is interpreted as melody play.
Because of this, there is no need for a separate accompaniment
keyboard, so the entire keyboard, from end to end, can be
used for both melody and chords.

Messages
The MIDI messages explained here can be sent and received
when the keyboard is connected to a computer by USB
connection. Note, however, that you need to install the USB
driver from the CD-ROM that comes with the keyboard on
your computer to send and receive these MIDI messages.
There is a wide variety of messages defined under the MIDI
standard, and this section details the particular messages that
can be sent and received by this keyboard. An asterisk is used
to mark messages that affect the entire keyboard. Messages
without an asterisk are those that affect only a particular
channel.
NOTE ON/OFF
This message sends data when a key is pressed (NOTE ON)
or released (NOTE OFF).
A NOTE ON/OFF message include a note number (to indicate
note whose key is being pressed or released) and velocity
(keyboard pressure as a value from 1 to 127). NOTE ON
velocity is always used to determine the relative volume of
the note. This keyboard does not receive NOTE OFF velocity
data.
Whenever you press or release a key on this keyboard, the
corresponding NOTE ON or NOTE OFF message is sent from
the USB port.
Press the key

*1 Sustain
With piano tones and other sounds that decay, the pedal acts
as a damper pedal, with sounds being sustained longer when
the pedal is depressed. With organ tones and other continuous
sounds, notes played on the keyboard continue to sound until
the pedal is released. In either case, the sustain effect is also
applied to any notes that are played while the pedal is
depressed.
*2 Sostenuto
This effect performs the same way as sustain, except that it is
applied only to notes that are sounding already when the
pedal is depressed. It does not affect notes that are played
after the pedal is depressed.

PROGRAM CHANGE
This is the tone selection message. PROGRAM CHANGE can
contain tone data within the range of 0 to 127.
A PROGRAM CHANGE message is sent out through this
keyboard’s USB port whenever you manually change its tone
number. Receipt of a PROGRAM CHANGE message from
an external machine changes the tone setting of this keyboard.
NOTE
• This keyboard supports 128 tones in the range 0 to 127.
However, Channel 10 is a percussion-only channel, and
Channels 0, 8, 16, 24, 25, 32, 40, 48, and 62 correspond
to the nine drum set sounds of this keyboard.
PITCH BEND
This message carries pitch bend information for smoothly
sliding the pitch upwards or downwards during keyboard
play. This keyboard does not send pitch bend data, but it can
receive such data.
*1 The BANK SELECT setting of PROGRAM CHANGE can be used
to access any of this keyboard’s 255 tones when selecting tones on
this keyboard from an external machine.
See the “Tone List” on page A-1 for details about PROGRAM
CHANGE and BANK SELECT combinations.

*2 RPN stands for Registered Parameter Number, which is a special
control change number used when combining multiple control
changes. The parameter being controlled is selected using the
control values of control numbers 100 and 101, and then settings
are made using the control values of DATA ENTRY (control
numbers 6 and 38).
This keyboard uses RPN to control this keyboard’s pitch bend sense
(pitch change width in accordance with bend data) from a
computer, transpose (this keyboard’s overall tuning adjusted in
halftone units), and tune (this keyboard’s overall fine tuning).
NOTE
• Sustain (control number 64), sostenuto (control number
66), and soft (control number 67) effects applied using
the foot pedal are also applied.
CONTROL CHANGE
This message adds effects such as vibrato and volume changes
applied during keyboard play. CONTROL CHANGE data
includes a control number (to identify the effect type) and a

CARD
Your keyboard is equipped with a card slot that supports use
of SmartMediaTM memory cards. This makes it possible for
the keyboard to directly read commercially available SMF
data, which has been saved to a SmartMedia card from your
computer, for sing along and lessons. SmartMedia data can
be used the same way as built-in tunes.
This keyboard supports SMF (FORMAT 0) data.
NOTE
• An SMF that is larger than about 80 Kbytes cannot be
used for a 3 Step Lesson or Evaluation Mode. Attempting
to do so will cause an error message to appear on the
display.
• This keyboard cannot write data to a SmartMedia card.
• The keyboard can manage up to 200 SMF data files.
STEP
About SmartMediaTM Cards
• You can purchase SmartMedia cards at most household
appliance stores, computer stores, etc.
• SmartMedia cards are commercially available in capacities
ranging from 8MB up to 128MB.
• Though a SmartMedia card is about the size of a postage
stamp, its capacity ranges from 8 to 100 times the capacity
of a floppy diskette.
• The data read rate from a SmartMedia card is very fast.
• SmartMediaTM is a trademark of Toshiba Corporation.
IMPORTANT!
• There are two types of SmartMedia cards: 3.3V and 5V.
Note that this keyboard supports use of 3.3V type
SmartMedia cards only.
• Never try to use a 5V type SmartMedia card with this
keyboard.
• Note you will not be able to store data to, delete data
from, or rename a SmartMedia card that has a write
protect sticker affixed to the card’s write protect area.

Precautions
IMPORTANT!
• Be sure to carefully read all documentation that comes
with the SmartMedia card for important information about
how to handle it.
• Avoid storing and using SmartMedia cards in the
following types of locations. Such conditions can cause
corruption of data stored on the card.
• Areas subject to high temperatures, high humidity, or
corrosive agents
• Areas subject to strong electrostatic charge or
electrical noise
• Whenever handling a SmartMedia card, make sure that
you never touch its contacts with your fingers.
• If the data access lamp is lit and the message “Pls Wait”
is on the display, it means that data on the SmartMedia
card is being accessed by a save, read, or delete
operation. Never remove the SmartMedia card from the
card slot or turn off the keyboard while the card is being
accessed. Doing so can corrupt the data on the
SmartMedia card or even damage the card slot.
• Never try to insert any type of card other than a 3.3V
SmartMedia card into the card slot. Doing so can
damage the keyboard.
• Inserting a SmartMedia card that is charged with static
electricity into the card slot can cause malfunction of
the keyboard. If this happens, turn the keyboard off and
then back on again.
• A SmartMedia card that has been in the card slot for a
long time may feel hot when you remove it. This is normal
and does not indicate malfunction.
• Note that a SmartMedia card has a limited service life.
After long use, you may not be able to store data to,
read data from, and/or delete data from a card. When
this happens, you will need to purchase a new
SmartMedia card.
RadioShack Corporation assumes no responsibility for any
loss or damage to you or any third party arising out of the
loss or corruption of data.
Inserting and Removing a
SmartMedia Card

downwards, insert the card into the card slot. Carefully push
the card into the slot as far as it will go.
NOTE
• When inserting a SmartMedia card into the card slot,
make sure you carefully orient the card correctly so it
slides correctly straight into the slot. Make sure that the
card is not at an angle, which can cause it to enter into
the space above or below the slot by mistake.
To remove a SmartMedia card from the slot
After making sure that the message “Pls Wait” is not on the
display, carefully pull the card from the slot.*
* Never remove the SmartMedia card from the card slot or

Care of your keyboard
Avoid heat, humidity or direct sunlight.
Do not overexpose the instrument to direct sunlight, or place it near an air conditioner, or in any extremely hot place.
Do not use lacquer, thinner or similar chemicals for cleaning.
Clean the keyboard with a soft cloth dampened in a weak solution of water and a neutral detergent. Soak the cloth in the solution
and squeeze until it is almost dry.
Avoid use in areas subjected to temperature extremes.
Extremely high or low temperature can cause figures on the LCD screen to become dim and difficult to read. This condition
should correct itself when the keyboard is brought back to normal temperature.
NOTE
• You may notice lines in the finish of the case of this keyboard. These lines are a result of the molding process used to shape
the plastic of the case. They are not cracks or breaks in the plastic, and are no cause for concern.

This product is warranted by RadioShack against manufacturing defects in material and workman-ship under normal use for
one (1) year from the date of purchase from RadioShack company-owned stores and authorized RadioShack franchisees and
dealers. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED HEREIN, RadioShack MAKES NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES AND ANY IMPLIED
WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THOSE OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE
LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE DURATION OF THE WRITTEN LIMITED WARRANTIES CONTAINED HEREIN. EXCEPT AS
PROVIDED HEREIN, RadioShack SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY OR RE-SPONSIBILITY TO CUSTOMER OR ANY OTHER
PERSON OR ENTITY WITH RESPECT TO ANY LIABILITY, LOSS OR DAMAGE CAUSED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY BY
USE OR PERFOR-MANCE OF THE PRODUCT OR ARISING OUT OF ANY BREACH OF THIS WARRANTY, IN-CLUDING,
BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM INCONVENIENCE, LOSS OF TIME, DATA, PROPERTY,
REVENUE, OR PROFIT OR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDEN-TAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EVEN IF
RadioShack HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limita-tion of incidental or
consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
In the event of a product defect during the warranty period, take the product and the RadioShack sales receipt as proof of
purchase date to any RadioShack store. RadioShack will, at its option, un-less otherwise provided by law: (a) correct the defect
by product repair without charge for parts and labor; (b) replace the product with one of the same or similar design; or (c) refund
the purchase price. All replaced parts and products, and products on which a refund is made, become the prop-erty of
RadioShack. New or reconditioned parts and products may be used in the performance of warranty service. Repaired or
replaced parts and products are warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period. You will be charged for repair or
replacement of the product made after the expiration of the warranty period.
This warranty does not cover: (a) damage or failure caused by or attributable to acts of God, abuse, accident, misuse, improper
or abnormal usage, failure to follow instructions, improper installation or maintenance, alteration, lightning or other incidence of
excess voltage or current; (b) any repairs other than those provided by a RadioShack Authorized Service Facility; (c)
consumables such as fuses or batteries; (d) cosmetic damage; (e) transportation, shipping or insurance costs; or (f) costs of
product removal, installation, set-up service adjustment or reinstallation.
