1) Keep pressing the REVERB button until the effect of your
choice has been selected.
5. BASIC OPERATION
The following chapters describe some further basic functions
which you can use in addition to those already explained.
5.1 Using two sounds (layer mode)
Instead of a single sound you can also play two sounds
simultaneously on the EG540/1040. These sounds are layered
and can be played together over the entire keyboard.
1) In the SOUND SELECT section, simultaneously press the
buttons of the sounds to be layered.
The LEDs above the buttons light up to show that the associated
sounds have been selected.
The active effect is shown by an LED lighting up next to the
effect name.
If none of the four LEDs lights up, the room effect
is disabled.
2) Keep the REVERB button pressed while adjusting the original
vs. effect signal ratio in the VALUE/SONG section using the
-/NO and +/YES buttons.
+
In our example the sounds „GRAND PIANO 1“ and „STRINGS“
are layered.
To quit layer mode, press any button in the SOUND
SELECT section. This will also select one single
sound again.
5.2 Changing the sound character
The display reads:
0x20: Effect intensity (0=no effect, 20=maximum effect)
3) If you want to restore the default settings, keep the REVERB
button pressed, then press -/NO and +/YES simultaneously.
You can change the sound character by using a room and a
modulation effect as well as a brightness equalizer.
5.2.1 Brightness equalizer
Use the brightness equalizer to change the sound character and
make it softer or more brilliant.
1) Change the sound character with the BRIGHTNESS control
as follows:
V
Move the control to the left (SOFT) for a softer sound that
is darker in tone.
V
Move the control to the right (BRIGHT) for a more brilliant
sound.
5.2.2 Room effects
The EG540/1040 provides room effects simulating four reverb
rooms of different sizes. When you select a sound, the EG540/
1040 also selects an appropriate effect. If required, however,
you can always select any other effect. The following reverb
room simulations are available:
ROOM:
Simulates a small room.
HALL 1:
Simulates a small concert hall.
HALL 2:
Simulates a large concert hall.
STAGE:
Simulates a typical stage ambience.
5.2.3 Modulation effects
The EG540/1040 provides a modulation effect featuring four
different types of effect. When you select a sound, the EG540/
1040 automatically adds an appropriate effect for some of the
sounds. If required, however, you can always select any other
effect. The following modulation effects are available:
CHORUS:
Chorus effect. „Widens“ the sound.
FLANGER:
Time-shifted layering of sounds. Produces a
„floating“ sound.
TREMOLO:
Rapid, constantly repeated changes in the
volume of the sound.
DELAY:
Echo effect. Produces time-shifted repetitions
of the sound that decay over time.
1) Keep pressing the EFFECT button until the effect of your
choice has been selected.
The selected effect is shown by an LED lighting up next to the
effect name.
10
If none of the four LEDs lights up, the modulation
effect is disabled.
5. BASIC OPERATION
EUROGRAND EG540/1040
2) Keep the EFFECT button pressed while adjusting the original
vs. effect signal ratio in the VALUE/SONG section using the
-/NO and +/YES buttons.
2) Press the pedal to sustain the tones you just played.
3) Play the next notes. These are played with normal decay.
4) Release the pedal for normal playing.
V
+
On the acoustic piano notes are sustained by keeping all
the damper felts in their raised position even after
releasing the keys. This allows the notes played to decay
quite naturally.
The display reads:
0x20: Effect intensity (0=no effect, 20=maximum effect)
3) If you want to restore the default settings, keep the EFFECT
button pressed, then press -/NO and +/YES simultaneously.
Damper/Forte pedal (right): The damper pedal allows
you to sustain the notes already played (and held) plus all
subsequent notes, without having to hold the keys down.
The damper pedal is often used to achieve a richer sound.
This is the pedal that is used most often.
1) Play the notes to be sustained.
2) Press the pedal to sustain the notes you just played plus all
subsequent notes.
3) Release the pedal for normal playing.
5.4 Using headphones
5.3 Using the pedals
The EG540/1040 is equipped with three foot pedals performing
the same functions as the pedals on an acoustic grand piano.
Normally, the pedals are used in accordance with the instructions
given in the music, where they are marked by special symbols.
It is useful to know how sound is produced on an acoustic piano
to better understand how the pedals work.
When you strike a key, a hammer hits several strings for each
note; the strings produce a tone with a defined pitch. When you
let go of the key, a damper felt falls down on the strings to stop
them from vibrating any longer. As a result, the tone decays
quickly. However, if the key is held down, the tone is sustained
for a while before it decays completely. In this case, the tone
decays only after a certain time.
The EG540/1040 is equipped with two headphone jacks located
on the underside of the playing console (front left). Headphones
are ideal for practising without disturbing others. The second
headphone jack allows another person, for example a music
teacher, to listen as well so that piano lessons can also be held
using headphones.
1) Use the MAIN VOLUME control to turn the volume down
(move the slide control to the left half of its control range).
2) Connect your headphones to a free headphone jack on the
underside of the playing console.
3) While playing adjust the volume as desired using the MAIN
VOLUME control.
This decay characteristic can be influenced using the three foot
pedals.
V
Soft/piano pedal (left): The soft pedal produces a soft
and intimate sound. Use this pedal for particularly soft
musical passages (pianissimo).
4) If required, the SPEAKERS button allows you to switch the
built-in loudspeakers of the EG540/1040 on or off.
On an acoustic piano this soft sound results from a
smaller distance between hammer and strings. On a
grand piano, however, the position of the hammer
changes, so that the hammer does not hit all strings.
1) Press the pedal to dampen all tones played afterwards with
the pedal down.
2) Let go of the pedal for normal playing.
V
You can adjust the effect of the damper pedal (see
chapter 6.6.2).
Sostenuto pedal (middle): Use the sostenuto pedal to
sustain individual tones. The notes already played – as
long as they have not yet decayed – will be sustained as
soon as you press the pedal. All notes played subsequently
will be dampened as described above. This allows you to
play and sustain a certain note using the pedal, while all
subsequent tones will be played in a staccato (detached)
manner.
The built-in loudspeakers of the EG540/1040 are
switched off as soon as you connect a pair of
headphones; the MUTE LED above the SPEAKERS
button lights up.
When you disconnect your headphone from the
headphones jack, the built-in loudspeakers of the
EG540/1040 are switched on again and the MUTE
LED above the SPEAKERS button goes out.
When you sustain single notes on an acoustic piano using
the sostenuto pedal, the damper felts of the notes already
played do not dampen the strings when you release the
keys, but are held in their position.
1) Play the notes to be sustained.

6. ADVANCED OPERATION
The following chapters provide information on advanced
operating functions of the EG540/1040.
6.1 Using EDIT mode
Many advanced operating functions of the EG540/1040 are
available in EDIT mode. The following sections describe how to
adjust these functions in EDIT mode.
Whenever you are prompted to enter EDIT mode,
please follow the step-by-step instructions given
below to select a function and adjust its
parameters.
1) Keep pressing the SELECT button in the TEMPO/EDIT MODE
section until the EDIT MODE LED lights up.
The sounds produced by the EG540/1040 can be transposed up
or down by half-tones (key by key). This is useful, for example
if you want to play a piece in a key that is easier to play because
it has few or no accidentals at all (e.g. C major), but intend the
piece is to sound in a difficult key with lots of accidentals (e.g. D
flat major).
Example: D flat major has five flats (accidentals). In this key you
would have to play a lot of black keys. However, if you transpose
the sounds up by one half-tone, you can easily play the piece on
the white keys (C major).
It can be helpful to transpose the keyboard by an octave (12
half-tones), for example to play low notes in the middle register
where they can be played more comfortably.
1) Press and hold the TRANSPOSE button and use the -/NO
and +/YES buttons in the VALUE/SONG section to adjust the
transposition value of your choice in half-tone steps.
+
2) Scroll through the functions using the ef buttons, until the
appropriate function (e.g. E1) has been selected.
The display reads:
0:
No transposition (default setting)
1x12:
Keyboard is transposed up by the number of half-tones
selected.
-1x-12:
3) Use the -/NO- and +/YES buttons in the VALUE/SONG section
to adjust the value of your choice.
Keyboard is transposed down by the number of halftones selected.
2) Release the TRANSPOSE button when the desired value
has been selected.
6.1.1 Quick access to layer mode functions
Use the following operating procedure for direct access to the
layer mode menu pages.
1) Press and hold down the two sound buttons selected for
layer mode (e.g. GRAND PIANO 1 and STRINGS) and press
the SELECT button in the TEMPO/EDIT MODE section.
The LED above the TRANSPOSE button lights up
when the transposition feature is active, i.e. when
a value other than zero has been set.
If a transposition interval has already been set,
you can enable/disable the transposition function
using the TRANSPOSE button.
6.3 Layer mode settings
In layer mode you can effect additional settings for advanced
playing with two sounds at the same time.
All sounds are numbered internally from 1 through 14. This order
of sounds determines which sound is addressed internally as
voice #1, voice #2, etc., which in turn is important for making
changes to the sounds selected.
+
The EDIT MODE LED lights up and the EDIT page E3.1 is displayed.

In our example the two sounds GRAND PIANO 1 and STRINGS
are being used in layer mode. Internally, GRAND PIANO 1 is #1,
STRINGS is #11. The sound with the lower number is addressed
internally as voice #1 (here: GRAND PIANO 1), the sound with
the higher number as voice #2 (here: STRINGS).

6.5 Music sequencer
The EG540/1040 provides a built-in 2-track sequencer which
allows you to record and play back a piece of music . For each
of the two tracks you can select one or two sounds for recording.
This means that the music sequencer can play back up to four
sounds at the same time. While playing back a music piece you
can also play on the keyboard to produce complex performances
with up to six different sounds.
What is more, you can use the music sequencer for practising.
For example, you could record the left and right-hand parts of a
piece separately on the two tracks. During playback switch off
one track (=hand) and play the muted part yourself. Thus, you
can practice each part individually within its musical context.
6) Start recording by pressing the START/STOP button or simply

6.6.4 Tunings
The EG540/1040 provides different tunings developed during
the past few centuries. The tuning used most often today is
called equal tuning and has been a characteristic element of the
music composed from the 19 th century up to the present.
However, for some baroque pieces (e.g. by J. S. Bach) it can be
interesting to use an older tuning system.
In the history of music, the development of the individual tunings
can be traced back to the development of scales and polyphony
and the resulting adaptation of instruments and their tuning. Apart
from these historical reasons the limited tuning aids available in
former times played an important role for the practical
implementation of tunings.
The EG540/1040 provides the following tunings:
V
TIP: young pianists might find it easier to use a
SOFT key velocity setting.
The function will be effective only if the left pedal
is used as a soft pedal, but NOT to start/stop the
music sequencer (see chapter 6.5.8).
The EG540/1040 can be detuned slightly to adapt it to other
instruments or tunings. The setting made here affects the pitch
of all keys.
An LED above the button lights up to show the current setting. If
all LEDs are out, key velocity is switched off. In this case you
can adjust a fixed volume level as follows:
Normal soft pedal intensity (default setting)
Equal tuning (default setting)
Equal tuning divides one octave into twelve intervals of equal
size or spacing. Thus, each half-tone is detuned slightly to the
same extent, with the octave being the only perfect interval. This
has been the most common tuning since the 19th century, as it
makes it possible to play all twelve major/minor keys.
V
Pure major/minor intonation
This tuning is based on the perfect tuning of the seven notes of
one scale (e.g. C major). Triads played one fifth above or below
are also perfect, since they use the notes of the basic key.
However, all other keys are not playable, since their frequency
relationships change depending on the basic note.
6. ADVANCED OPERATION
EUROGRAND EG540/1040
This tuning can only be used for music that strictly follows a
classical cadence comprising tonic, dominant and subdominant.
V
Pythagorean tuning
The Pythagorean tuning is based on perfect fifths. As a
consequence, all thirds are impure.
This tuning was used for early music up to the late Middle Ages.
The homophonic or two-part polyphonic music of the time did not
use any thirds, but only perfect unison, fourth, fifth and octave
intervals.
V
Meantone tuning
Meantone tuning resulted from the change in the perception of
dissonant intervals during the Renaissance period and from the
beginnings of chromaticism and polyphony. Polyphony made the
third the most important interval in music. Therefore, meantone
tuning is based on perfect thirds rather than perfect fifths to
tune the twelve notes of a scale. However, this also means that
some scales are unplayable.
6.6.5 Saving parameter settings
The EG540/1040 allows you to save the changes made to the
instrument’s settings, so that they won’t get lost when the unit is
powered down. When the save function is not active, all changes
made to the settings – except for the music sequencer data –
will be lost when you switch the piano off. When switched back
on, the EG540/1040 recalls the factory default settings.
The save function can be activated separately for the following
groups of functions: sounds, MIDI, tuning and damper pedal.

Today, the meantone tuning can still be used for works from the
early 16th and 17th centuries (e.g. G. F. Handel).
V
Werckmeister/Kirnberger
Type of modulation effect and intensity (see chapter
5.2.3)
tuning
The Werkmeister and Kirnberger tunings result from first attempts
to realize a well-tempered tuning which – unlike the Pythagorean
and meantone tunings – allows for playing in all twelve keys.
The advantages of the Pythagorean and meantone tunings, i.e.
the slight detuning of some fifth intervals, have also been included
in the Werkmeister/Kirnberger tunings
Both tunings are interesting to use for works from the baroque
period (e.g. J. S. Bach). Werkmeister is a popular tuning for
organ works.

6.6.6 Restoring the factory default settings
The EG540/1040 provides a variety of connectors for connecting
the instrument to external devices.
Use the following procedure to recall the factory default settings.
ATTENTION: All saved parameters as well as the
music sequencer data will be lost during either
one of the following procedures.
1) Use the POWER switch to switch the instrument off (if not
already done).
2) Play and hold down the top C key on the keyboard, then
switch the EG540/1040 back on.
+
An alternative procedure is described below:
WARNING: Be sure that all devices are switched off
before you make any connection.
WARNING: NEVER connect the LINE IN connectors of
the EG540/1040 to its LINE OUT connectors. This
will cause a feedback loop producing high volume
levels which could damage both the instrument
and your hearing!
7.1 Connecting external sound sources
The EG540/1040 is equipped with a stereo LINE IN connector for
connecting external sound sources to your digital piano. These
signals are reproduced through the internal loudspeakers and
connected headphones. If you wish to practise with musical
accompaniment, you can use this input to connect a CD player or
drum computer. In the same way, you could connect an external
synthesizer or sound module and use its sound generator with
your instrument. An additional MIDI connection enables you to
play an external sound generator from the keyboard of the EG540/
1040 (see chapter 7.3.1).
The following diagram shows a wiring example comprising the
EG540/1040 and a CD player. You need one or two cables fitted
with 1/4" or cinch plugs (see chapter 10.1.3). You can also use
a cinch or 1/4" cable with an appropriate adapter plug.
1) Use the POWER switch to switch the instrument off (if not
already done).
2) Press and hold down the TRACK 1 and TRACK 2 buttons,
then switch the EG540/1040 back on.
+
Fig. 7.1: Connecting external signal sources
3) Let go of the TRACK buttons after about 5 seconds.
1) Connect the outputs of the CD player to the LINE IN
connectors of the EG540/1040.
For a mono connection use the LINE IN L (MONO)
connector on the EG540/1040.
7.2 Connection to external amplifiers and
recording equipment
The EG540/1040 is equipped with two LINE OUT connectors for
connecting the digital piano to external keyboard amplifiers, P.A.
systems or home stereo systems. For performances in larger
rooms (e.g. stages, hall) it can be necessary to use external
amplifiers.
20
7. CONNECTION TO EXTERNAL EQUIPMENT
EUROGRAND EG540/1040
You can also use the outputs to connect recording equipment
(e.g. computer, cassette recorder, MD recorder). Unlike the builtin music sequencer, recording on external audio equipment gives
you the advantage that you can play back your music completely
independently of the EG540/1040. For example, you can give
your friends a recorded CD or MD or archive music pieces on
any recording medium.
V
Use the MIDI IN to send playing data from other MIDI
controller keyboards or a music computer to the sound
generator of the EG540/1040.
V
The MIDI THRU jacks passes on the MIDI data received via
the MIDI IN jack without modification. In combination with a
music computer you can thus integrate another keyboard
or sound module into the MIDI chain comprising EG540/
1040 and music computer.
7.3.1 MIDI connection to other sound modules
You can use the EG540/1040 to control external sound modules
via MIDI. This allows you to use the keyboard and pedals of the
digital piano to control the sound generators of other synthesizers
or sound modules not equipped with a keyboard. When you also
connect the audio signal of the external sound module to the
EG540/1040, as described in chapter 7.1, all sounds played in
addition to the sounds of the EG540/1040 can be heard through
the loudspeakers of the digital piano.
The following illustration shows a set-up comprising the EG540/
1040 and an external sound module.
Fig. 7.2: Connecting amplifiers and recording equipment
1) Connect the LINE OUT jacks to the inputs of an external
amplifier.
For a mono connection use the LINE OUT L (MONO)
connector on the EG540/1040.
2) Connect the LINE OUT cinch jacks to the inputs of an external
recording device.
ATTENTION: Be sure to switch the EG540/1040 on,
BEFORE you switch on the external amplifier, so as
to avoid switch-on thumps being amplified. Such
signals could damage the amplifier and the
loudspeakers. Switch off the equipment in reverse
order.
7.3 MIDI functions
MIDI is an interface and protocol for transmitting of playing data
to other MIDI equipment. The most important playing data are
pitch and length of notes, key velocity and channel volume,
program changes and various controller data generated, for
example, by controllers such as the pedals.
The MIDI interface does not transmit electrical audio signals but
control data only . The MIDI protocol provides for the transmission
of data on 16 independent channels. Playing data are always
channel-specific data.
The EG540/1040 is equipped with three MIDI jacks for connecting
additional MIDI sound modules or software/hardware
sequencers:
V
Use the MIDI OUT to connect additional synthesizers or a
music computer receiving MIDI data from the EG540/1040.
Fig. 7.3: Controlling external MIDI sound modules
1) Connect the MIDI OUT jack of the EG540/1040 to the MIDI IN
jack of the external sound module.
2) Be sure to set the MIDI transmit/receive channels of both
instruments to the same number (see chapter 7.3.3).
3) Connect the audio outputs of the sound module to the LINE
IN jacks of the EG540/1040, if you want to play back the
sounds of the external device through the digital piano
loudspeakers.
7.3.2 MIDI connection to a music computer loaded
with sequencing software
You can operate the EG540/1040 in combination with a
sequencing program such as Cubase® or Logic®. Sequencing
software gives you a wealth of powerful functions to record
and process MIDI data. For example, you can record serveral
tracks to create complex music pieces. Additional options are
the production/printing of sheet music or playback of music
pieces. What is more, you can transfer the data of the built-in
music sequencer to your computer for permanent archiving.
The following illustration shows a set-up comprising the EG540/
1040 and a music computer. The connection of an external sound
module is optional.

music sequencer using the MIDI dump feature (see
„Sending music sequencer data“ below).
V
Setting the MIDI receive channel
Use this function to set the receive channel on which the EG540/
1040 is to receive MIDI data. MIDI devices must transmit and
receive on the same MIDI channels to ensure successful MIDI
communication. Select the default setting ALL for proper operation
in combination with a music computer.

3) Connect the MIDI IN jack of the sound module to the MIDI
THRU jack of the EG540/1040.
4) Connect the audio outputs of the sound module to the LINE
IN jacks of the EG540/1040, if you want to play back the
sounds of the external device through the digital piano
loudspeakers.
Enable/disable sound generator (Local on/off)
This function allows you to determine whether the built-in sound
generator directly plays the notes you play on the keyboard or
whether it only responds to MIDI note information received via
the MIDI IN jack. The latter setting is quite useful, for example, in
sequencer mode. In a closed MIDI chain the looping through of
MIDI signals could otherwise lead to double sounds, i.e. when
you hit a key on the keyboard, the EG540/1040 plays the note
directly only to play it again shortly after, when the MIDI commands
sent to the sequencer come back via the MIDI IN of the EG540/
1040. When the EG540/1040 is set to Local Off, the MIDI data are
only sent to the sequencer. The notes are played only once
when the MIDI signals come back from the sequencer.

10.1 Cables
Below you will find an overview of all cables you need to connect your digital piano. The cables are not supplied with the piano.
Depending on the intended use, adapter cables will be necessary to interface the various connectors. You can use adapter cables
or plugs (e.g. 1/4" to cinch). Cable adapters are better than adapter plugs, as the latter may affect the signal quality due to insufficient
contact of the plugs with each other.
10.1.1 Unbalanced 1/4" cable
Unbalanced 1/4" cables are equipped with a 1/4" TS plugs at each end. They are used to connect external keyboard amps and
devices with 1/4" outputs (e.g. synthesizers, drum computers) to the EG540/1040.
Fig. 10.1: Unbalanced 1/4" cable with 1/4" TS plugs
10.1.2 RCA cables
RCA cables are often used for hi-fi applications to connect CD players, MD recorders and other devices to home stereo systems.
You will need this type of cable to connect the EG540/1040 to hi-fi recording equipment. Usually, these cables are supplied in pairs
to form one stereo cable. The plugs are in most cases red (right) and white (left). Make sure that the wiring between recording device
and EG540/1040 follows this color code, so as not to mix up the left/right signals.
Fig. 10.2: Hi-fi RCA cable
10.1.3 1/4" to RCA cable
1/4" to RCA cables are required for connecting a hi-fi playback device (e.g. CD player) to the EG540/1040. As an alternative, you can
also use an unbalanced 1/4" cable with an appropriate RCA adapter.
Fig. 10.3: 1/4" to RCA cable
10.1.4 MIDI cables
MIDI cables are required for connecting MIDI equipment. These cables have a 5-pin DIN plug at each end. Be sure to use cables
marked as MIDI cables (wiring as shown), since there are also similar cables with a different wiring available for hi-fi equipment. MIDI
cable lengths should be as short as possible. Avoid cable lengths exceeding 10 m, as these could lead to errors during the
transmission of signals.
