Welcome to the CBX-K2
Congratulations and thank you for purchasing the Yamaha CBX-K2 MIDI Keyboard!
The CBX-K2 is a sophisticated, yet compact MIDI keyboard controller, for use
with computers and MIDI music systems. It allows you to play connected tone
generators and rhythm machines, and enter performance data to sequencers and
computers. It features a sophisticated touch-sensitive keyboard that can be adjusted to cover the full 128-note MIDI range. It also provides a wealth of MIDI
controls that allow you to send virtually any MIDI message directly from the
keyboard. Moreover, the CBX-K2 has three built-in assignable controllers: Assignable Wheel, Assignable Slider and Assignable Footswitch. The Assignable Wheel
and Assignable Slider can be set to control virtually any parameter on your connected tone generator or sequencer in real time, while the Assignable Footswitch
can be used for sustain, certain sequencer controls, or as an alternate SHIFT button.
Because of its portable size, convenient battery/AC adaptor power supply, compatibility with General MIDI (GM) and XG, and extraordinarily powerful and
comprehensive MIDI control functions, the CBX-K2 is an invaluable tool — a
MIDI Swiss army knife, of sorts — for all MIDI musicians and performers.
IMPORTANT ■ The CBX-K2 does not contain an internal tone generator. In order
to play sounds from the CBX-K2, you need an external tone generator, such as the
Yamaha MU series or TG series tone generators.
NOTE ■ The many MIDI functions and features of the CBX-K2 may not be supported by your particular MIDI device. Be sure to refer to the owner’s manual of
your particular MIDI device when using it with the CBX-K2.

The CBX-K2 — What It Is and What It Can Do
What It Is
The CBX-K2 is a compact, highly portable 49-key MIDI
keyboard, designed especially for use with computers and
MIDI music systems. The CBX-K2 does not generate any
sound itself, but can be used as a keyboard controller for
playing sounds on a connected tone generator or rhythm
machine. It’s also ideal for recording to sequencers and
computers. The keyboard is touch-sensitive and its octave
range can be changed to cover the full 128-note MIDI
range.
The true power and flexibility of the CBX-K2 is in its
comprehensive MIDI controls. The CBX-K2 allows you to
send virtually any type of MIDI message to connected
MIDI devices. Pre-programmed commands provide easy
control of basic sequencer/rhythm machine functions such
as Start, Stop, Tempo and Song Select, while comprehensive program change commands let you easily select
program banks and voices.
Most importantly, though, the CBX-K2 has an Assignable
Wheel and Slider that can be set for control of any controller number. This means that you can use the Assignable
Wheel to control a wide variety of parameters on your
connected tone generator — such as Volume, Pan, Brightness, and the Depth of various effects — in real time. This
gives you expressive control over different aspects of the
sound in live performance.
The CBX-K2 is also the latest instrument in the Yamaha
line to support the XG format, a new addition to the
General MIDI standard. In short, XG provides for more
instrument sounds and variations, and greater expressive
control over voices and effects. With the use of the Assignable Wheel or Slider on the CBX-K2, you have direct realtime control over many of these newly supported functions
and parameters.
What It Can Do
Here are a few application ideas on how you can use the
CBX-K2. The list below is not comprehensive, but is
meant to be a general guide to the possibilities and provide
a starting point or springboard for your own creative ideas
and explorations.
● Using With a MIDI Tone Generator
In one of the most basic setups, you can play a connected
tone generator from the CBX-K2. Because it’s so compact
and portable, you can even use it as a hand-held keyboard
for live performance.
● Using as a Second Keyboard or Dedicated
MIDI Controller
The CBX-K2 is small enough to fit on top of nearly any
keyboard, making it perfect as a second keyboard. Since
the CBX-K2 has a MIDI IN terminal, you can connect it
between your main keyboard and your tone generator, and
use the extensive MIDI capabilities of the CBX-K2 for
greater expressive control during your performance.
● Using in a MIDI Music System
Combined with a laptop computer and a compact tone
generator (like the General MIDI/XG-compatible Yamaha
MU100R), the CBX-K2 gives you comprehensive music
making power — for recording, composing, arranging,
practicing, and editing — in a portable system that’s ready
to go wherever you go. The CBX-K2 is an ideal addition
to larger MIDI studios as well, since it provides far greater
MIDI control and flexibility than nearly any other keyboard
controller. Use it along side your main MIDI keyboard as a
kind of MIDI Swiss army knife — sending necessary MIDI
messages, working the real-time controllers, or editing
already recorded sequencer tracks.
● Multimedia
Since it’s portable and compatible with the General MIDI
and XG formats, the CBX-K2 is a natural for multimedia
applications. Because of its ease of use and comprehensive
functions, it’s the only keyboard you’ll ever need for
recording and editing MIDI data on your multimedia
creations.

How to Use This Manual
By and large, the CBX-K2 is very easy to use and this manual is self-explanatory. However, we strongly recommend that you
take time to read the manual — especially before trying some of the more sophisticated MIDI functions. Read through all of
the initial sections first, then go on to the “Guided Tour” to set up your CBX-K2, learn how to use its various functions, and
try out some of the practical application examples to help you become more familiar with its operations. For those who need
to delve deeper, the “Reference” section provides at-a-glance information and important details on all functions.
The following conventions are used throughout this manual:
* Panel buttons and controls are indicated as they appear on the actual instrument. (For example, C and
M.
* The functions and features assigned to the keyboard are shown like this: T and {.
* Unless indicated otherwise, L refers to either of the ENTER keys, J or K. However,
when you wish to enter a decimal value, make sure to press K. Likewise, when entering a hexadecimal
number, make sure to press J.
* Actual MIDI data messages (in hexadecimal) are indicated as follows: <<FE>> and <<En 00 40>>, etc.
* Operation steps are indicated as follows:
Example

In this introductory section, you’ll learn how to set up the
CBX-K2 for use in your music system. A variety of setups
are covered here; read through the one that most closely
matches your own setup.
What You’ll Need
Since the CBX-K2 is strictly a MIDI controller and does
not generate any sound by itself, you’ll need other datareceiving and sound-producing equipment. Basically, you
will need:
* The CBX-K2 and PA-1D AC power adaptor (or a set of
batteries).
* A MIDI device (such as a tone generator, keyboard or
computer) which can receive and play back MIDI data,
and at least one MIDI cable.
* (Optional) An amplifier/speaker system, preferably
stereo, with proper audio connecting cables. Alternately, you can use a set of stereo headphones.
With Computer and Tone Generator
In the small MIDI system below, the CBX-K2 is connected
to a computer and a single tone generator. With the proper
sequencing software on the computer, the CBX-K2 can be
used both for recording performance data to the computer
and playing the sounds of the connected tone generator.
You can also conveniently use the CBX-K2 to start and stop
the sequencer.
For tone generators with a built-in MIDI interface (such as
the Yamaha MU100R)

NOTE ■ All devices must be turned off before making
connections.
■ The setup examples below show only the MIDI
connections. The audio connections would vary
according to the particular equipment you use. Refer
to the owner’s manuals of your other equipment for
audio connection instructions.
When connecting the instrument to other MIDI devices, be
sure to use only high-quality MIDI cables. Also, avoid
using cables longer than 15 meters, since long cables can
result in data errors.
Serial port
The HOST SELECT switch
on the MU100R allows you
to match the type of
computer, when connecting
directly to a computer.
Computer
Connect the MIDI OUT terminal on the CBX-K2 to the
MIDI IN terminal on the MU100R. The MU100R should be
connected to the proper port on the computer. (For
complete connection instructions, refer to the owner’s
manual of your particular tone generator.)

generator should be connected to a MIDI OUT on the
interface.
NOTE ■ Set the MIDI Thru (or Echo Back) setting on
the sequencer software to ON.
As for the required MIDI settings for the computer and
sequencer software, refer to the respective manuals.
With Tone Generator
In the simple system below, the CBX-K2 is used to play the
voices of the MU100R Tone Generator. This setup could
also serve as a simple, yet powerful live performance rig,
with the CBX-K2 being used as a portable keyboard
controller.

Setting Up Your CBX-K2
With Main Keyboard and Tone Generator
In this system, the CBX-K2 effectively serves as a second
keyboard. The main keyboard (in this case, the Clavinova)
is used to play both its own internal sounds and the sounds
of the connected multi-timbral tone generator on one
channel, while the CBX-K2 is used to play the sounds of
the tone generator on another channel. This lets you play
two sounds at once from the Clavinova, and play a third
sound from the CBX-K2.
Making the Connections
CAUTION!
■ Before making any connections, make
sure that all equipment to be connected is set to
minimum volume and turned off.
Operation
1. Connect the MIDI OUT terminal of the CBX-K2 to the
MIDI IN terminal of the tone generator, sequencer or
computer MIDI interface (as shown in the illustrations
above).
MIDI IN
MIDI OUT
2. Make all necessary audio connections, making sure first
that all level controls on those devices are set to the
minimum. (Refer to the owner’s manuals of the devices
you are using for more information on connections.)

3. Turn the power on for the various equipment in the
following order:
1) CBX-K2
2) Computer
3) Tone generator(s)
4) Audio devices (mixer, amplifier, etc.)
When turning off the power, simply reverse the above
order, turning off the CBX-K2 last.
Connect the MIDI OUT terminal on the main keyboard to
the MIDI IN terminal on the CBX-K2. Also connect the
MIDI OUT terminal on the CBX-K2 to the MIDI IN terminal
on the tone generator.
In a variation of the above setup, set the Clavinova and
CBX-K2 to transmit on the same channel, and set the CBXK2’s MIDI Merge function to ON. This lets you play the
tone generator from either keyboard and use the versatile
MIDI functions of the CBX-K2 to control the tone generator — for example, changing the brightness of the sound in
real time with the Assignable Wheel.
NOTE ■ When an external MIDI device is connected to
the MIDI IN of the CBX-K2, the LED display may
indicate a MIDI error. This is probably due to a
longer-than-normal interval between active sensing
messages received from the device, or could be the
result of an improper connection. In such a case, the
CBX-K2 automatically resets to Merge Off (pages 26,
34). Check the connected device or cable before
continuing.
15
Playing and Using Your CBX-K2
This section of the manual guides you through some of the
basic features and functions of the CBX-K2. It also
provides some advanced operation examples, so that you
can get a feel for what the CBX-K2 is capable of, and how
you can best use it. Master the basics in this section, and
you’ll have the experience and know-how to easily and
confidently use any of the more advanced functions covered
later in the Reference section.
In this section, you’ll learn how to:
• Transmit program change messages and play the
keyboard.
• Select a voice bank.
• Change the octave setting of the keyboard.
• Use the Pitch Bend and Assignable Wheels.
• Re-assign the controller for the Assignable Wheel
and Slider.
• Change the Touch Sensitivity of the keyboard.
Selecting and Playing Voices
The CBX-K2 lets you select voices (or program numbers)
on your connected MIDI device in two ways: stepping up
or down through the program numbers, or directly selecting
a specific program number.
•
When the CBX-K2 is turned on, the starting point for
program change is 001. This means that when you first
hold down C and press M, program
number 002 will be selected.
To step up or down through the program numbers:
First, make sure that the program number is shown
in the display (see the Display Program Change
function, page 26). Then, simultaneously hold down
C and press M (to advance one
program number), or press N (to go
back one program number).
IMPORTANT! ■ Always release C before playing
the CBX-K2 keyboard. Holding down C accesses
the secondary A or B group or other functions, and you
may inadvertently execute one of these functions by
playing the keyboard while continuing to hold down
C.
NOTE ■ This function does not “wrap around.” In
other words, you cannot go back to program number
128 when at 001, or advance to program number 001
when at 128.
•
The program number in the LED display changes accordingly, and the OCTAVE SHIFT lamps quickly flash on and
off. Release C, and play the keyboard to hear the
newly selected voice.
To quickly move up or down through the program numbers,
continuously hold down C and the appropriate OCTAVE SHIFT button.
16
To change the program number:
While holding down C, press the key corresponding to Y (F1), then the keys
corresponding to the desired number, then the key
corresponding to K.
For example, to select program number 017, continue
holding down C and press Y, 1,
7, then K. Release C, and play the keyboard to hear the newly selected Voice.
Playing and Using Your CBX-K2
Changing the Voice Banks
Many currently available tone generators feature multiple
banks of voices. The CBX-K2 can be used to quickly and
easily select these additional banks. Some banks may not
be available on your particular tone generator; check the
manual for details.
2. While continuing to hold down C, enter the
number 64 (press 6, then 4), then press
K.
Operation
1. Simultaneously hold down C and press
T.
The LED display indicates the current Bank setting by
alternately flashing the MSB and LSB values. (In this
case, the default setting, both of these values are 000.)
MSB value
LSB value
This sets the Bank to 064 (LSB value). The LED
display alternately flashes the MSB and LSB values,
000 and 064.
To restore the original Bank (or select other Banks), hold
down C, press T, 0 (or another number
for a different Bank), and K.
MSB value
LSB value
The display alternately flashes the
MSB and LSB values.
Changing the Octave Range
The range of the 4-octave keyboard can be easily shifted up
or down to cover the full 10-1/2-octave (128-note) range of
MIDI notes. (See on page 9 for the note range.)
Operation
To shift the keyboard up one octave, press
M. To shift the keyboard down one
octave, press N.
You can instantly restore the normal octave range by
pressing both N/M buttons
simultaneously.
NOTE ■ At the highest octave setting, keys outside the
legal MIDI note range will repeat a previous octave.
When the octave range is changed, the LED display briefly
indicates the new setting. The OCTAVE SHIFT lamps
also rapidly flash one or more times, according to the
selected octave range. For example, when the setting is
changed to two octaves below normal, the left lamp flashes
twice.
17
Playing and Using Your CBX-K2
Using the Pitch Bend Wheel, Assignable Wheel, and Assignable Slider
These two wheels and slider let you control different
aspects of the sound in realtime as you play. These controls affect the connected MIDI instrument.
Move the Pitch Bend Wheel as you play to change the pitch
of the sound. Moving the wheel away from you bends the
pitch up. The Pitch Bend Wheel is spring-loaded for
returning to center (normal pitch).
Move the Assignable Wheel as you play to change the
modulation of the sound (MIDI Controller #1). Moving the
wheel away from you increases the modulation. Moving
the Assignable Slider changes the Data Entry value (MIDI
Controller #6). (Notice that the “006” flashes in the
display, indicating data for Controller #6 is being transmitted.) The Assignable Wheel and Assignable Slider can also
be set to control other functions; see the section below for
details.
Depending on the connected device and the selected voice,
there may be no response or change in the sound. Refer to
the owner’s manual of the particular device for details.
Re-assigning the Assignable Wheel and Slider
As mentioned above, the Assignable Wheel and Slider can
be used to control a variety of different functions. The
default setting for the Wheel is modulation (MIDI Controller #1), and the default for the Slider is data entry (MIDI
Controller #6). However, either can be set to control
volume, pan position, attack or release time, coarse tuning
or fine tuning, and reverb or chorus depth, among other
Controllers. (For a complete list of the available Controllers and their numbers, see on page 30.)
suited to control numbers such as #10 (Pan) and #73
(Attack Time) because of its center detent.
Try entering other Controller numbers, repeating steps 1
and 2 above. (A short list of Controllers is printed on the
panel. Try entering some of these; many—but not all—of
these will have an obvious effect on the sound as you move
the wheel.)

While continuing to hold down C, enter the
number 10 (press 1, then 0), then press
K.
This sets the Assignable Wheel to Controller number 10
(Pan). Play the keyboard and move the Assignable Wheel

the stereo image as you move the Wheel. As you move the
Wheel, the currently assigned Controller number appears in
the LED display. The Assignable Wheel is particularly

desired Controller number (for example, “7” for
MIDI volume control), then press K.
Play the keyboard and move the Assignable Slider as
you play, and hear how the volume of the sound
changes (if you are using Controller #7).
* You can also assign RPN and NRPN numbers to the
Assignable Wheel or Slider. (Pages 26 and 30.)
Playing and Using Your CBX-K2
Changing the Touch Sensitivity of the Keyboard
The Touch Sensitivity function lets you change how the
Voices respond to your playing strength.
NOTE ■ Touch Sensitivity is a “Group B” function. The
“Group A” functions (such as Program Change, Bank
Select, and Controller, which were covered above) are
shown on the panel and explained in detail on pages 26
– 27. The Group B functions (listed and explained on
pages 28 – 29) are also shown on the panel but are
accessed differently than Group A functions.
Operation
1. Simultaneously hold down C, press ç,
2. While continuing to hold down C, enter the
number 1, then press K.
This sets Touch Sensitivity to 1 (easy). Now, when you
play the keyboard, even playing softly results in a
reasonably loud sound.
Try entering other values (the range is 1–10), and hear how
they affect the response of the keyboard. The default value
is 10, and can also be restored by simply turning the CBXK2 off and on again.
NOTE ■ When Fixed Velocity is set to a value other
than 0 (off), the Touch Sensitivity setting has no effect.
then ˙.
Pressing ç first (before any function key) calls
up the Group B functions. The LED display indicates
the current Touch Sensitivity value.
For more information on Touch Sensitivity, see footnote #5
on page 28.
This concludes the basic tour of some of the important functions of the CBX-K2. To find out more about
how to use your CBX-K2, look through the Reference section that follows and try out some of the functions and operations that interest you.

Reference
Using the SHIFT-Related Functions
The enormous flexibility and power of the CBX-K2 is in its
“hidden” or SHIFT-related functions — allowing you to
send virtually any kind of MIDI message directly from the
keyboard or use the Assignable Wheel/Slider for real-time
control change.
Many of the functions can be done with one or two keystrokes, while others require you to enter a number value
and press one of the L keys to execute the function.
All functions can be accessed or executed by using one of
the operations described below.

Holding C, pressing the function’s key, entering
a value and then pressing L. These functions
are indicated with an underline on the panel (for example, PROGRAM CHANGE and TEMPO), and
require that a value (Decimal or Hexadecimal) be
entered.
When changing a function, the LED display indicates
the on/off status or the value of the function.
In using the SHIFT-related functions, remember
Keep holding down C until the end of the
operation. If C is released in mid-operation,
you’ll have to start the operation all over again.
In the instructions that follow, “L” refers to either of
the ENTER keys, J or K. In other
words, this means that either key can be used, unless
indicated otherwise.
NOTE ■ Both N / M
lamps flash briefly when a function is executed. The
LED display flashes briefly when a MIDI message is
sent.
Using the SHIFT-Related Functions
Basic Operations
Selecting Group A and Group B Functions
● Selecting Group A Functions:
Hold down C and press the appropriate key. (See
on pages 26 – 27 for specific Group A functions and
how to use them.)
● Selecting Group B Functions:
Hold down C and press ç. The Group B
functions are available as long as you continue to hold
down C. (See on pages 28 – 29 for specific Group
B functions and how to use them.)
* 1 → 0 → 0 → 3 → K: results in a value of
MSB = 001, LSB = 003.
* 0 → 1 → 0 → 0 → 3 → K: results in a
value of MSB = 001, LSB = 003.
● Entering MSB/LSB Values with J (2 digit
bytes for MSB, 2 digit bytes for LSB; 4 digits total
message). For messages beginning with zeroes, the
first zeroes can be omitted.
Examples:
* 3 → J: results in a value of MSB = 00, LSB = 03.
* 0 → 3 → J: results in a value of MSB = 00,
Entering Values
Value entry on the CBX-K2 can be done in two number
systems: Decimal and Hexadecimal. The keys labeled A
through F are for Hexadecimal entry.
● Entering a decimal value:
Hold down C, press the appropriate function key,
enter the desired value in decimal format, then press
K.
LSB = 03.
* 1 → 0 → 3 → J: results in a value of MSB
= 01, LSB = 03.
* 0 → 1 → 0 → 3 → J: results in a value
of MSB = 01, LSB = 03.
When entering MSB and LSB values, the LED display
alternately flashes the MSB and LSB values in hexadecimal
or decimal form.
Display alternately flashes MSB and LSB
● Entering a hexadecimal value:
Hold down C, press the appropriate function key,
enter the desired value in hexadecimal format, then
press J.
Example — Setting the MIDI Transmit Channel to 12:
Dot in this position
indicates MSB.
Dot in this position
indicates LSB.
Decimal:
C+{→1→2→K
Hexadecimal:
C+{→c→J
* Also see the Decimal-Hexadecimal Conversion Chart
on page 33.)
Value Entry — Some Specific Examples
and Anomalies
● Entering MSB/LSB Values with K (3 digit bytes
for MSB, 3 digit bytes for LSB; 6 digits total message).
For messages beginning with zeroes, the first zeroes
can be omitted.
Examples:
* 3 → K: results in a value of MSB = 000, LSB = 003.
* 0 → 3 → K: results in a value of MSB = 000, LSB =
NOTE ■ The order of MSB and LSB entry can be
reversed. (See MSB 1ST/LSB 1ST on page 28.)
NOTES ON THE BASIC OPERATION
■ If you inadvertently press two or more function keys
while performing a function, the last pressed key has
priority.
■ If, after entering a value, you press another function
key before pressing L, the value will be cancelled.
■ If you enter a value that is outside of a function’s
range, it will be ignored. Legal messages can be one
byte in length (a value from 0 – 255) exception for
Tempo value and Measure Number.

Transpose Setting
Operation: C + G / H
To transpose up one semitone, use the H key
(F2). To transpose down one semitone, use the
G key (E2). Each repeated pressing of the
key while holding C transposes the pitch by an
additional semitone. To restore the normal default transpose setting, hold down C and press both
G / H keys simultaneously.
NOTE ■ You can also enter transpose values directly by
using operation
above.
, this page.)
The operation steps enclosed in braces ({}) can be repeated
or re-entered as long as C is held.
NOTE ■ This operation assigns a controller number for
the Assignable Wheel or Slider, and sends a specific
value for that controller number. You can also send a
specific value for the controller (in the Group B functions) without altering the controller assignment.
8
Selecting a Drum Number (when editing
a specific drum number with controller
numbers 136 – 151)
You can use operation
above to set the drum number
for editing a specific drum number with controller numbers
136 – 151. However, the following operation lets you set
the Drum number by playing it from the keyboard. This
allows you to hear the drum sound you’ll be editing, since
the last note played on the keyboard determines the drum
sound to be changed.
Without pressing C, find the desired drum number by
sound — by pressing keys on the keyboard. Next, hold
down C, press F, then L. This sets
the drum number to the last key pressed. Then (to set the
controller number for that drum sound), hold down C
and press S, then enter the controller number
(136 through 151). This sets the Controller Number for the
Drum parameter you wish to control with the Assignable
Wheel or Slider.
23
Setting the Functions
* Unless indicated otherwise, L refers to either of
the ENTER keys, J or K. However, when you wish to enter a decimal value, make sure
to press K. Likewise, when entering a hexadecimal number, make sure to press J.
Group B Operations
Group B function names are also shown on the panel above
the Group A function names. For the list and explanations

connected to the CBX-K2, there may be no response. Refer to the
owner’s manual of the device for details.
*3 Be careful not to press the connected footswitch when footswitch is
assigned to “SUS”; the operation cannot be executed while the
footswitch is pressed.
*4 When Tempo is assigned to the Assignable Wheel or Slider, this
setting is ignored. When the Assignable Wheel or Slider is set to a
26
function other than Tempo, the current value is effective. The range
for this function is 20 – 300 bpm; when the Wheel or Slider is set to
control Tempo, the range is slightly narrower: 28 – 282 bpm. When
this is set to 0, “oFF” is shown in the display.
*5 The entry order of the MSB and LSB values can be changed by using
the MSB 1ST/LSB 1ST in Group B.
*6 The actual program change number transmitted by the CBX-K2 is the

About MIDI
MIDI is an acronym that stands for Musical Instrument
Digital Interface, which allows electronic musical instruments to communicate with each other, by sending and
receiving compatible Note, Control Change, Program
Change and various other types of MIDI data, or messages.
The CBX-K2 can control a MIDI device by transmitting
note related data and various types of controller data.
MIDI Messages Transmitted by
the CBX-K2
MIDI messages can be divided into two groups: Channel
messages and System messages. Below is an explanation of
the various types of MIDI messages which the CBX-K2 can
receive and transmit.
Depending on the particular device that you are using, some
messages may not be available. Refer to the owner’s
manual of the device for details.
CHANNEL MESSAGES
Channel messages are the data related to the performance
on the keyboard for the specific channel.
■ Note On/Note Off (Key On/Key Off)
Messages which are generated when the keyboard is played.
bank select will not function when a GM System On
message is received.
■ Control Change
Control Change messages let you control volume, panning,
modulation, portamento time, brightness and various other
controller parameters, through specific Control Change
numbers which correspond to each of the various parameters.
● Modulation (Control #001)
Messages which control vibrato depth using the Modulation Wheel.
Setting the value to 127 produces maximum vibrato and
0 results in vibrato off.
● Portamento Time (Control #005)
Messages which control the duration of portamento, or a
continuous pitch glide between successively played
notes.
Setting the value to 127 produces maximum portamento
time and 0 results in minimum portamento time.
Portamento is turned on/off by Control #065.
● Data Entry MSB (Control #006)
● Data Entry LSB (Control #038)
Messages which set the value for the parameter specified by RPN or NRPN MSB/LSB. Parameter value is
determined by combining MSB and LSB.
Transmission note range = C-2 (0) - G8 (127), C3 = 60
● Main Volume (Control #007)
Messages which control the volume.
Velocity range = 1 - 127 (only Note On velocity is
transmitted)
Setting the value to 127 produces maximum volume and
0 results in volume off.
Note On: Generated when a key is pressed.
● Pan (Control #010)
Messages which control the stereo panning position of
each voice (for stereo output).
Note Off: Generated when a key is released.
Each message includes a specific note number which
corresponds to the key which is pressed, plus a velocity
value based on how hard the key is struck.
■ Bank Select
● Bank Select MSB (Control #000)
● Bank Select LSB (Control #032)
Messages (MSB/LSB) which set the voice bank of a
tone generator.
When used on an XG-compatible tone generator set to
XG operation, normal or drum voice bank is selected by
the MSB value, and the particular voice bank is selected
by the LSB value. With Yamaha MU-series instruments,
Setting the value to 127 positions the sound to the far
right and 0 positions the sound to the far left.
● Expression (Control #011)
Messages which control intonation expression of each
voice during performance.
Setting the value to 127 produces maximum volume and
0 results in volume off.
● Sustain Switch (Control #064)
Messages which control sustain on/off.
Setting the value between 64 - 127 turns the sustain on,
between 0 - 63 turns the sustain off. On the CBX-K2, a
connected footswitch can be assigned to control sustain
when “SUS” is set.

About MIDI
● Portamento Switch (Control #065)
Messages which control portamento on/off.
Setting the value between 64 -127 turns the portamento
on, between 0 - 63 turns the portamento off.
● Sostenuto Switch (Control #066)
Messages which control sostenuto on/off.
Setting the value between 64 - 127 turns sostenuto on,
between 0 - 63 turns sostenuto off.
When notes are held before and during the time
sostenuto is turned on, those notes (and only those
notes) will be sustained until sostenuto is turned off.
● Soft Pedal Switch (Control #067)
Messages which control soft pedal on/off.
Setting the value between 64 - 127 turns soft pedal on,
between 0 - 63 turns soft pedal off.
When soft pedal is on, the sound becomes softer and
lower in volume.
● Harmonic Content (Control #071)
Messages which adjust the VCF resonance set for each
voice.
Higher values will result in a more characteristic,
resonant sound. Depending on the voice, the effective
range may be narrower than the range available for
adjustment.
● Release Time (Control #072)
Messages which directly adjust the AEG release time set
for each voice.
● Attack Time (Control #073)
Messages which directly adjust the AEG attack time set
for each voice.
● Brightness (Control #074)
Messages which directly adjust the VCF cutoff frequency set for each voice.
Lower values will result in a softer sound. Depending on
the voice, the effective range may be narrower than the
range available for adjustment.
● Effect1 Depth (Reverb) (Control #091)
Messages which adjust the send level for the Reverb
effect.
● Effect3 Depth (Variation Chorus) (Control #093)
Messages which adjust the dry/wet balance for the
Chorus Variation Effect.
● Effect4 Depth (Variation Depth) (Control #094)
Messages which adjust the send level for the Variation
32 depth.
● Data Increment (Control #096)
● Decrement (Control #097) for RPN
Messages which increase or decrease the value of Pitch
Bend Sensitivity, Fine Tune, or Coarse Tune.
You must assign one of those parameters using the RPN
in the external device in advance.
● RPN (Registered Parameter Number) LSB (Control
#100)
● RPN (Registered Parameter Number) MSB (Control
#101)
Messages which offset, or add or subtract values from
the Pitch Bend Sensitivity, Fine Tune, or Coarse Tune
parameters.
First send the RPN MSB and RPN LSB to specify the
parameter which is to be controlled. Then use Data
Increment/Decrement to set the value of the specified
parameter.
Note that once the RPN has been set for a channel,
subsequent data entry will be recognized as the same
RPN’s value change. Therefore after you use the RPN,
you should set a Null (7FH, 7FH) value to avoid an
unexpected result.

note (when several notes are played together) when it is
applied.
However, if Sustain Switch or Sostenuto Switch is on,
notes will continue sounding until these are turned off.
■ Pitch Bend
Pitch Bend messages are continuous controller messages
that allow the pitch of designated notes to be raised or
lowered by a specified amount over a specified duration.
This message cannot be sent by any CBX-K2 operation;
however, when a MIDI error occurs, this message is sent
automatically.
● Mono (Control #126)
Performs the same function as when an All Sounds Off
message is received, and if the 3rd byte (mono number)
is in the range of 0 - 16, sets the corresponding channel
to Mono Mode (Mode 4 : m = 1).
SYSTEM MESSAGES
System messages are the data related to the overall system
of the device.
● Poly (Control #127)
Performs the same function as when an All Sounds Off
message is received, and sets the corresponding channel
to Poly Mode (Mode 3).
■ System Exclusive Messages
System Exclusive messages let you use the CBX-K2 to
control various functions on connected devices, including
master volume and master tuning, effect type and various
other parameters.
■ Program Change
Messages which select voices.
● Master Volume
This message controls the volume over all MIDI channels.
■ Channel Aftertouch
The CBX-K2 keyboard does not have aftertouch sensitivity and thus cannot send aftertouch messages by
keyboard pressure. However, Channel Aftertouch data
can be sent by the Assignable Wheel or Slider. Channel
Aftertouch affects the sound of all notes when it is
applied.

■ Active Sensing
Once FE (Active Sensing) has been received, if no MIDI
data is subsequently received for longer than an interval of
approximately 300msec, the CBX-K2 will register an
Active Sensing error.
■ Polyphonic Aftertouch
The CBX-K2 keyboard does not have aftertouch sensitivity and thus cannot send aftertouch messages by
keyboard pressure. However, Polyphonic Aftertouch
data can be sent by the Assignable Wheel or Slider.
Polyphonic Aftertouch affects the sound of only the top

MIDI Data Format
MIDI Reception
● Merge-related Notes
When Merge is set to ON, MIDI messages received from an
external device at MIDI IN can be merged with the data
generated by the CBX-K2, and are transmitted as is from
MIDI OUT. However, there are some exceptions, as listed
below:
* Active sensing messages <<FE>>, All Note Off messages (<<Bn 7B 00>>) <<F4>> and <<F5>> will not be
merged.
* When the CBX-K2 is set to send <<F8>> messages,
<<F8>> messages from an external device will not be
merged.
* When the CBX-K2 is not set to send <<F8>> messages,
<<F8>> messages from an external device can be
merged.
* When Merge is set to ON, and an <<FE>> message has
not been received for over approximately 300 ms, an
Active Sensing error occurs.
* With the exception of System Exclusive data, messages
not conforming to the legal byte format will not be
merged. System Exclusive data that doesn’t conform to
the legal byte format can be merged.
* If during transmission of System Exclusive messages,
the messages are cut off or interrupted (for over approximately 400 ms), a MIDI error occurs.
* When Merge is set to on, and RPN/NRPN messages are
sent from both the CBX-K2 and an external device
connected to MIDI IN, the resulting messages may be
mixed and corrupted.
* When Merge is turned off while a key is held, a stuck
note results. This is because the CBX-K2 simply turns
Merge off, without changing the Note On status.
During merging of System Exclusive data, all operations
from the CBX-K2 are ignored, and <<FE>> and <<F8>>
messages from the CBX-K2 will be stopped. This may
cause some problems, as listed below:
* Any operations executed from the CBX-K2, in the
middle of a System Exclusive message (<<F0- F7>>)
sent from an external device, are ignored.
* CBX-K2 operations that start before or end after the
System Exclusive message will be incomplete.
To avoid these problems:
* Turn Merge off or disconnect the MIDI cable (if the
Merge function is not needed).
* Do not operate the CBX-K2 during reception of large
System Exclusive messages, such as bulk dumps.
* When receiving many short System Exclusive messages,
operate the CBX-K2 slowly, or avoid operating it at all.
34
● Response of the CBX-K2 During MIDI Errors
When a MIDI reception error occurs (such as buffer full,
Active Sensing, interruption of System Exclusive, etc.), the
CBX-K2 responds as follows:
1. Merge is set to OFF.
2. Damper Off, All Note Off, All Sound Off messages are
transmitted over all channels.
3. The M lamp flashes and the relevant
error number appears in the LED display.
To set Merge to ON again, hold down C and press
P.

Troubleshooting
Even though the CBX-K2 is easy to use, it may occasionally not function as you expect it to. If that happens, check
the possible problems and solutions below before assuming
that the instrument is faulty.
● (Problem)
— (Possible Cause and Solution)
● No sound from the connected device.
— The cables may have been connected incorrectly.
— Controller data, such as Volume, Expression and Master
Volume, may have been set to values too low to produce
sound.
— The Fixed Velocity setting may be too low.
● When the power is turned off and on again, the
settings you made have been cancelled.
— This is normal. The CBX-K2 has no internal memory backup.
● Sound is cut off.
— When incoming active sensing messages exceed that allowed
by the MIDI standard, the sound will automatically be cut off.
● A certain function does not respond or work properly.
— The connected MIDI device may not support the relevant
function on the CBX-K2.
● Specific functions/messages cannot be executed or
sent properly.
— While holding down C in the middle of an operation, you
may have inadvertently released C. Make sure to hold
down C for the duration of the operation.
● The connected device does not respond or synchronize to MIDI clock messages, or MIDI clock messages are not sent.
— Make sure that the Tempo setting on the CBX-K2 is set to a
value other than oFF. Also make sure that the connected
device is set properly for receiving MIDI clock messages. If
another device is connected to the MIDI IN of the CBX-K2
and that device is sending the MIDI clock messages, Merge
must be set to ON.
● The Tempo cannot be set.
— The Tempo setting is inactive when Tempo is assigned to the
Assignable Wheel or Slider.
● With Merge set to ON, tempo change messages sent
from an external device have no effect.
— If an external device is connected to the MIDI IN of the CBXK2, and the CBX-K2 is sending its own MIDI clock messages,
the MIDI clock messages of the external device will not be
sent via MIDI OUT. To have the external device’s clock
messages sent, set Tempo on the CBX-K2 to 0.
● Sending a bank select message also sends a program change message.
— This is normal. The CBX-K2 automatically sends the
currently set program change number together with a bank
select message.
● The RPN or NRPN controller number assigned to the
Assignable Wheel doesn’t function properly.
work properly.
— Please refer to the Merge-related Notes, page 34.
● Octave Shift function has no effect.
— Octave Shift cannot be changed while a key is being held
down.
● The error message “E2” appears in the LED display
and the M lamp flashes, indicating a
“MIDI buffer full” error.
— A MIDI “loop” may have been set up. To remedy this, set
MIDI Merge to OFF. (Pages 26 and 28.)
— Too much MIDI data (exceeding the receive capability of the
CBX-K2) may have been received at MIDI IN.
● An “E1” message appears in the LED display.
— The battery power is too low for proper operation. Replace all
batteries.
● The keyboard is not touch sensitive.
— Make sure that Fixed Velocity is set to oFF.
— When the Assignable Wheel or Slider is assigned to Velocity
(157), Touch Sensitivity does not function.
● The Fixed Velocity setting has no effect.
— The Fixed Velocity setting is inactive when Velocity is
assigned to the Assignable Wheel or Slider.
● Even when Touch Sensitivity is active, the effective
velocity range is narrower than expected.
— Please refer to Footnote #5 on page 28 for details on velocity
range.
● The All Sound Off function has no effect.
— All Sound Off in the Group A functions only applies to the
currently selected MIDI channel.
● The right-most five keys of the keyboard do not
sound at the expected pitch.
— When set to the highest octave range, the right-most five keys
are set one octave down.
● Some of the keys do not respond to after touch
pressure when playing several notes simultaneously.
— Polyphonic Key Pressure (After Touch) applies only to the
highest note played.
● Incoming data is not merged.
— Make sure that Merge is set to ON. Make sure also that the
Merge on/off function in Group B is set to ON for the relevant
MIDI channel.
● Some messages cannot be merged.
— Please refer to the Merge-related Notes, page 34.
● Merge is inadvertently set to OFF.
— When there is a MIDI error, Merge is automatically turned off.
Please also refer to the Merge-related Notes, page 34.
● The tone generator continues to sound after a key is
released.
— This may be caused by a MIDI error and may happen depending on the Merge setting. Please refer to the Merge-related
notes, page 34.
● When turning Merge off, the connected tone generator continues to sound.
— Execute the All Sound Off function (in the Group B functions;
pages 28 – 29).
— Please refer to the Merge-related Notes, page 34.
● The RPN or NRPN direct data send function doesn’t

Error Messages
The following messages may appear in the LED display during operation, indicating problems or incorrect operation.
E1
Batteries are low
The battery power is too low for operation. Replace all batteries with a
complete set of six new batteries of the same type.
E2
MIDI buffer full
Too much MIDI data has been received. Eliminate unnecessary MIDI data.
E3
Active Sensing error
This error occurs when a MIDI cable is connected to the MIDI IN terminal
of the CBX-K2 and Active Sensing messages <<FE>> have not been
received for a certain amount of time or the MIDI cable has been accidently disconnected.
E4
SysEx data error
The received System Exclusive message is incorrect. Confirm the contents
of the transmitted data (such as necessary MSB, LSB, etc.) and attempt the
operation again.
E5
MIDI framing error
An error occurred during the reception of MIDI data.
NOTE — About messages E2 – E5
■ Error messages E2 – E5 occur during the reception of MIDI data when Merge is
turned on. Exit from the error message by pressing C or any other panel
button.
■ When any of these error messages occurs, Merge is automatically turned off, and
the following messages are transmitted over all MIDI channels 1 – 16: Hold 1
(damper) OFF, All Note OFF, and All Sound OFF.

About RPN and NRPN
Registered Parameter Numbers (RPN) are controllers that
have been added to the MIDI specification and are
common among various MIDI devices of different
manufacturers. Unlike the Control Change numbers,
these use messages composed of three bytes: MSB, LSB
and Data Entry.
Non-Registered Parameter Numbers (NRPN) are controllers that have been created by one or more manufacturers, but have not been added to the MIDI specification.
Thus, NRPN functions may be found on some instruments and not others. The NRPN functions of the CBXK2 support all XG-compatible devices. Unlike the
Control Change numbers, these use messages composed
of three bytes: MSB, LSB and Data Entry.
Other RPN or NRPN messages not provided on the panel
can be transmitted using the RPN or NRPN functions in
Group A and B.
