PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep these precautions in a safe place for future reference.
WARNING
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical shock,
short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or
modify them in any way. The instrument contains no user-serviceable parts.
If it should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and
have it inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet
conditions, or place containers on it containing liquids which might spill
into any openings.
• If the power cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is a sudden
loss of sound during use of the instrument, or if any unusual smells or
smoke should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off the power
switch, disconnect the electric plug from the outlet, and have the instrument
inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required
voltage is printed on the name plate of the instrument.
• Before cleaning the instrument, always remove the electric plug from the
outlet. Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may
have accumulated on it.
CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage to the
instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Do not place the power cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators,
and do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, place heavy
objects on it, or place it in a position where anyone could walk on, trip over,
or roll anything over it.
• Take care that the key cover does not pinch your fingers, and do not insert a
finger or hand in the key cover gap.
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always
hold the plug itself and not the cord. Pulling by the cord can damage it.
• Never insert or drop paper or metallic or other objects between the slits of
the key cover and the keyboard. If this happens, immediately turn off the
power and remove the electric plug from the outlet and have the instrument
inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multipleconnector. Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause
overheating in the outlet.
• Do not place the instrument against a wall (allow at least 3 cm/one-inch
from the wall), since this can cause inadequate air circulation, and possibly
result in the instrument overheating.
• Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the instrument is not to be
used for extended periods of time, or during electrical storms.
• Do not operate the instrument for a long period of time at a high or
uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If
you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.
• Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off
the power for all components. Before turning the power on or off for all
components, set all volume levels to minimum. Also, be sure to set the
volumes of all components at their minimum levels and gradually raise the
volume controls while playing the instrument to set the desired listening
level.
• Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme
cold or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the
day) to prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration or damage to the internal
components.
• Do not use the instrument near other electrical products such as televisions,
radios, or speakers, since this might cause interference which can affect
proper operation of the other products.
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally
fall over.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables.
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners,
solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths. Also, do
not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might
discolor the panel or keyboard.
• Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and do
not use excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.
(1)B-6
■ USING THE BENCH
• Do not play carelessly with or stand on the bench. Using it as a tool or stepladder or for any other purpose might result in accident or injury.
• Only one person should sit on the bench at a time, in order to prevent the
possibility of accident or injury.
• If the bench screws become loose due to extensive long-term use, tighten
them periodically using the included tool.
■ SAVING USER DATA
• Always save data to a floppy disk frequently, in order to help prevent the loss
of important data due to a malfunction or user operating error.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or
modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use.

3 Voice Controls and Effects
You can add Reverb and Sustain effects to your selected voices.
1 Reverb
Reverb adds an echo-like effect to the sound, giving the impression of a
performance in a large room or concert hall. Reverb effect affects the entire

About the Rhythm Sequence
Rhythm Sequence is built up with various different rhythm patterns, and
can be programmed by the other Electone such as EL-700 and EL-500.
The EL-200 doesn’t have Rhythm Sequence function, but it can read and
load the rhythm sequence data recorded on the MDR (a floppy disk) to its
four Metronome (SEQ.) buttons in the Rhythm section and play back them,
as follows:
1. Insert the floppy disk containing rhythm sequence data into the
EL-200’s MDR slot. The rhythm sequence data is recorded as a part of
registration data (explained on page 33).
4
Rhythms
2. Select the song number containing the registration data and press PLAY

6 Music Disk Recorder (M.D.R.)
The Music Disk Recorder (M.D.R.) lets you store the registration data and load back to the Electone as well as
record your performance and play back the data. Moreover, the M.D.R. allows you to execute song copy
operation and play back commercially available XG song data.
1 Precautions on M.D.R.
Follow the important precautions below.
To eject a floppy disk:
Compatible Disk Type
3.5" 2DD and 2HD type floppy disks can be used.
A blank 2HD floppy disk has been included with
your Electone for you to record your performances.
Inserting/Ejecting Floppy Disks
■ To insert a flopp
y disk into the disk ve:
dri
Hold the disk so that the label of the disk is facing
upward and the sliding shutter is facing forward,
towards the disk slot. Carefully insert the disk into the
slot, slowly pushing it all the way in until it clicks into
place and the eject button pops out.
6
Music Disk Recorder
Eject button
NOTE:
When the EL-200 is turned on, the LED below the floppy disk
slot will be lit indicating that the M.D.R. is ready to use.
28
Press the eject button slowly as far as it will go;
the disk will automatically pop out. When the
disk is fully ejected, carefully remove it by
hand.
Never attempt to remove the disk or turn the
power off during recording, reading and
playing back. Doing so can damage the disk
and possibly the disk drive.
If the eject button is pressed too quickly, or if it
is not pressed in as far as it will go, the disk
may not eject properly. The eject button may
become stuck in a half-pressed position with the
disk extending from the drive slot by only a few
millimeters. If this happens, do not attempt to
pull out the partially ejected disk, since using
force in this situation can damage the disk drive
mechanism or the floppy disk.
Floppy disk slot
LED (Lamp in-use)
Be sure to confirm that the lamp of STOP
button on M.D.R. is turned off before ejecting a
floppy disk from the slot. Never eject the floppy
disk before the STOP lamp lights up.
To remove a partially ejected disk, try pressing
the eject button once again, or push the disk
back into the slot and then repeat the eject
procedure.
Be sure to remove the floppy disk from the
disk drive before turning off the power. A
floppy disk left in the drive for extended
periods can easily pick up dust and dirt that
can cause data read and write errors.
Cleaning the Disk Drive Read/Write Head
● The M.D.R. employs precise magnetic head to read
data. The magnetic head will pick up a layer of
magnetic particles from the disks for an extended
period of time. The stained magnetic head will
eventually cause read and write errors.
● To maintain the disk drive in optimum working
order Yamaha recommends that you use a
commercially available dry-type head cleaning disk
to clean the head about once a month.
■ To protect your data (Write-protect
Tab):
To prevent accidental erasure of important data, slide
the disk’s write-protect tab to the “protect” position
(tab open). If you attempt to modify the disk when
the write-protect tab is set to “on” position, “Prot
(Protected)” will appear on the LED display in the
M.D.R. section indicating that the operation is not
possible.
Also please check if the write-protect tab is set to
“off” position when you record data.
Protect Off
(tab closed: unlocked)
NOTE:
Rear side
Ask your Yamaha dealer about the availability of proper headcleaning disk.
Shutter
About the Floppy Disks
■ To handle flopp
y disks with care:
Do not place heavy objects on a disk or bend or
apply pressure to the disk in any way. Always
keep floppy disks in their protective cases when
they are not in use.
Do not open the sliding shutter and touch the
exposed surface of the floppy disk inside.
Do not expose the disk to magnetic fields, such
as those produced by televisions, speakers,
motors, etc., since magnetic fields can partially
or completely erase data on the disk, rendering
it unreadable.
Never use a floppy disk with a deformed shutter
or housing.
Do not attach anything other than the provided
labels to a floppy disk. Also make sure that
labels are attached in the proper location.
Protect On
(tab open: locked)
6
■ Data backup
Yamaha recommends that you keep two copies of
important data on separate floppy disks using Disk
copy function. To make a backup disk use the Disk
Copy function on page 45.
Music Disk Recorder
Do not expose the disk to direct sunlight,
extremely high or low temperatures, or
excessive humidity, dust or liquids.
Write-protect tab
Improved Potentiality of the M.D.R.
The M.D.R. of the EL-200 begins reading all data
as soon as you insert a disk into the floppy disk slot.
Thus, inserting a disk causes to produce a sound
(reading sound) indicating that the M.D.R. is in the
reading process.
You can start playback as soon as you insert the
disk.
NOTE:
Ejecting the disk will lose the data loaded from the disk except
for the currently selected and played back song.
NOTE:
The time reading sound is produced is in proportion to the
amount of data recorded in the disk. You can eject the disk
whenever you are not using the M.D.R. and don’t want to be
bothered with the reading sound.

Outline of M.D.R. Operation
Though the M.D.R. is as easy to operate as a cassette tape recorder, it is far move versatile. Since it records all
Electone settings and control movements as well as the notes you play as digital data, it allows you much more
flexibility and control than even the most sophisticated tape recorder. Basically, the M.D.R. independently records
the following three types of data:
Registration data (including Bulk data)
All registrations stored to the Registration Memory numbered buttons as well as the registration currently set to
the panel, are recorded at the beginning of a song, before the actual recording of your performance.
Performance data
The M.D.R. records your performance on the keyboards and pedalboard of the Electone exactly as you play it,
even recording the strength at which you play the keys and how hard you press them down while playing. The
various types of performance data – Upper, Lower, Pedal, Lead and Keyboard Percussion – are recorded to
independent “tracks,” so that you can change any one of them without affecting the others.
Control data
All changes you make on the Electone during your performance are recorded in real time. These include
registration changes, the use of the expression pedals, footswitches and knee lever.

Music Disk Recorder

2) To record each part separately:
You can also record the parts of your performance independently; for
example, first recording the chords and bass to the song (using the Lower
and Pedalboard), and after that recording the melody (using the Upper
Keyboard). This function also lets you record the lead voice, keyboard
percussion and performance control data, such as registration changes
and expression pedal operation, separately from the other parts of the
song.
1
Set up the M.D.R. for recording, as you did in the section above.
The first steps in recording parts separately are the same as for
normal recording on page 31:
1. Memorize all the registrations needed for your performance
to the Registration Memory numbered buttons, and set the
registration that will be used at the beginning of the song.
2. Insert a formatted disk.
3. Select the song number to which you will record your
performance.
4. Press the RECORD button to make the Music Disk Recorder
ready to record.

Using More Than 8 Registrations
The M.D.R. makes it possible to use more than 8 registrations (8
Registration Memory locations) in a performance. A disk can
accommodate 40 song numbers and each song number can contain 8
registrations.

Music Disk Recorder
To play a performance using more than 8 different registrations:
1. First record the registrations you need into several song numbers
on the M.D.R. before the performance. (You should also try to
record them in the order that you’ll use them, if possible.)
2. During the performance, after all 8 registrations from a certain
song number have been used, select the next song number and
press the PLAY button on the M.D.R. This replaces all 8
registrations in Registration Memory with the new ones from the
selected song number.
3. By repeating the above steps, you can run through an entire
performance without having to change the panel settings.
6 Replacing Registrations
The M.D.R. also lets you change the registrations of an existing song
without changing the performance data. The procedure is the same
as that of Recording Registrations mentioned in the previous page.

7 Playback
You can play back your recorded performance by simply pressing
the PLAY button. Registrations and other data will be recalled to the
Electone.
NOTE:
You can play back the commercially available XG
song (SMF format 0 or 1).
If the disk contains normal Electone song data and
XG data, it accommodates each data in the two
different locations separately. If you insert the disk
containing those two types data, you can access the
location of normal Electone song data as the
default.
However, you can exchange the location and access
the XG data. In doing this, press the STOP button
while holding down the SHIFT button.
Each press of the STOP button while holding down
the SHIFT button alternately selects Electone song
data and XG data.

MIDI is an acron
ym that stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interf
ace,
which allows electronic musical instruments to communicate with each
other, by sending and recei
ving MIDI messages. If your Electone is
connected with external devices via these MIDI jacks (with a personal
computer via theTO HOST terminal) and appropriate MIDI settings are
done, you can play an xeternal MIDI de
vice such as synthesizer from your
Electone keyboard or your Electone can be played by anxternal
e
device
such as sequencer (by a personal computer with a sequencing softw
are
installed).
You need MIDI cable(s) when you xchange
e
the data between Electone and
an external device. Or you need a serial cable when you connect Electone’
s
TO HOST to the computer serial port instead of using MIDI cables.
Also, to exchange the data between your Electone and connected MIDI
device you have to match the MIDI transmit/recei
ve channels on both
devices. Receive channels of Electone are ixed.

Using the TO HOST terminal
If you want to connect your Electone with a personal computer, a MIDI
interface will be necessary. However, using a separately available Serial Cable
allows you to directly connect them (between the TO HOST terminal of your
Electone and the Serial Port of the personal computer). In this case you need to
select one of the HOST SELECT switches to match the computer type you use.
No additional MIDI setting is necessary.

Using an exter
nal MIDI k eyboard or MIDI tone generator
● Playing your Electone can cause the MIDI keyboard (or tone generator) to
be played using its own voices. You can produce thicker sound layers. (The
MIDI receive channels of the MIDI keyboard must match the transmit
channels on your Electone. The Electone performance data are transmitted
through the channel 1 for Upper Keyboard, channel 2 for Lower Keyboard
and channel 3 for Pedalboard.)
● Various messages including the values how far the expression pedal is
pressed down and how hard you play the Electone keyboard can be transmitted as digital data. However, how the external device responds depends on
the external device you have connected.
● The performance on your Electone can be recorded onto your PC using an
appropriate sequencing software. (You need a sequencing software in this
case.)
9
Using an exter
nal MIDI k eyboard
● Playing the external MIDI keyboard can cause your Electone to be played
using Electone’s voices. (The MIDI transmit channels of the MIDI keyboard
must match the (fixed) receive channels on your Electone. The channels 1, 2
and 3 for the Upper, Lower and pedal voices, respectively.)
Appendix
2 Control the EL-200 using an external device
NOTE:
You cannot use the M.D.R. and MIDI
function at one time since the M.D.R. is
also connected via MIDI internally.
● Also, the Keyboard Percussion on your Electone can be played by playing
the external MIDI keyboard. (The MIDI transmit channels of the MIDI
keyboard must be channel 15.)
● The MIDI data played back by the external PC (using a sequencing software) can be played using Electone’s voices. You can use the Electone as an
XG tone generator for computer-based music production. See page 57 for
the details to use the EL-200 as an XG tone generator.
53
The MIDI Messages of the EL-200
The MIDI messages can be divided into two groups: the Channel Messages and
System Messages. The Channel Messages are the data related to the
performance on the keyboard for a specific channel. Each time you play the
keyboard on the EL-200, the channel messages, which keys are played and how
hard the keys are pressed, will be transmitted via a specific channel. The System
Messages are the data that allows several MIDI devices communicate each
other. Below is an explanation of the various types of MIDI messages which the
EL-200 can receive/transmit.
Channel Messages
Key related messages
These are transmitted every time you play the keyboards on your Electone.
Reversely, the Electone can be played by receiving these data from an external
keyboard.
Note On
Generated when a key is played. The note range is
C-2 (0) – G8 (127), C3=60.
Velocity
Indicates how hard the key is held. The range is 1 - 127.
Note Off
Generated when a key is released.
Program Change
The Program Change messages allow you to change voices in the middle of a
song. With these messages you can change the registrations of the EL-200.
NOTE:
For more detailed information see MIDI
Data Format on page 58 and MIDI
Implementation Chart on page 68.
NOTE:
For more detailed information see MIDI
Data Format on page 58 and MIDI
Implementation Chart on page 68.
Control Change
The Control Change Messages let you select a voice bank, control volume,
panning, modulation, portamento time, brightness and various other control
parameters, through specific Control Change numbers.
9
NOTE:
For more detailed information on the
Control Change messages available for the
EL-200 see MIDI Data Format on page 58
and MIDI Implementation Chart on page
68.
Appendix
NOTE:
You can exchange the Expression Pedal
setting between Internal (Electone controls
the Expression Pedal function) and
External (an external device controls it,
instead) by turning on the Electone while
holding down the SHIFT button on the
M.D.R. When it is set to Internal, the
expression pedal lets you control Electone
volume even during M.D.R. playback.
Turning off the Electone restores the
default setting.
54
System Messages
System Exclusi
ve Messages
System Exclusive messages are used to exchange the system and voice/
registration data. These allow you to execute bulk dump operation, sending and
receiving all the data of the EL-200 including registrations to and from an
external device. This is especially useful for you to build up the library of the
registration data in a device like a hard disk.
Examples of Exchanging the Data
Use the following example to send (or receive) the registration data to (or
from) a personal computer (a sequencing software).
First, you need to connect your EL-200 with a personal computer (a
sequencing software) using a Serial Cable or a MIDI cable. (See page 53 for
more information.)
NOTE:
You also need a sequencing software,
which has been properly installed in the
personal computer, and which can send
and receive system exclusive messages.
Send the Registration Data
from the EL-200 to the Personal Computer (PC)
Preparation (Setting up registrations)
Set the Strings voice on the Upper Keyboard of the EL-200.
Select the String voice by pressing the STRINGS button in the Upper
Keyboard Voice.
1
2
Store the registration to the Registration Memory button 1.
While holding down the M. button Press the Registration Memory
button 1.
Sending the Registration Data
Send the Request-to-Send all RAM message, “F0, 43, 70, 70, 10, F7”
(Hexadecimal), from the EL-200 to the sequencing software (PC).
3
Once the EL-200 receives the Request-to-Send all RAM message, the
EL-200 automatically sends all registration data in the all registration
numbers to your PC.
You can store the registration data in a file on your PC.
NOTE:
Depending on the capacity of your
sequencing software, you may need to
divide the data into two and send them to
the PC separately. If you want to divide,
see page 61, “Data Code to Send” table.
For example,
by changing the message from
“F0,43,70,70,10,F7” (all data) to
“F0,43,70,70,17,F7,” the Electone will
send the Keyboard Percussion Assignment
data only.

EL-200 receives the note-on message and plays C2 key on the Upper
keyboard. It plays String voice you have set in the previous step.
Send the Note-Off message, “90, 30, 00” to the Electone.
All the above operations can also be done with the M.D.R. easily and
efficiently. However, using the PC/ hard disk allows you to build up a
large data library a single disk cannot deal with.

Use the EL-200 as an XG Tone Generator
You can also use the EL-200 as an XG tone generator since the EL-200 is
compatible with the XG format. You can play back the commercially available
XG song data with the Electone’s M.D.R., and also play them using an external
sequencer (or sequencing software) and the internal XG tone generator.
The internal tone generator section of the EL-200 is normally set to EL Mode
for playing as an “Electone.”
Sending an appropriate system exclusive message from the sequencing software
(PC) to the EL-200 changes the mode to XG Mode, in which you can use the
Electone as an XG tone generator.
1
Send the XG System On message, “F0, 43, 1N*, 4C, 00, 00, 7E, 00,
F7” from the PC to EL-200.
*N: Device Number (“0” on EL-200)
Once the XG System On message is received, the internal tone
generator will be in the XG Mode allowing the EL-200 to receive all
the MIDI messages defined by the XG format such as NRPN and Bank
Select.
NOTE:
The EL-200 allows you to play
back the commercially available
XG song data using the M.D.R.
For more information on XG song
playback, see page 39.
NOTE:
When you create an XG song data
using a sequencing software, be
sure to insert the XG System On
message at the beginning of the
data. The internal tone generator
mode automatically changes to
XG when you start to play back
the data.
NOTE:
The internal tone generator mode
automatically changes to XG
when you play back commercially
available XG song data.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
GENERAL OPERATION
A cracking noise is sometimes heard.
Noise may be produced when either an electrical appliance is turned on or off,
or an electric power tool (such as drill) is used in the proximity of the Electone.
If this occurs, plug the Electone into an electrical outlet located as far as
possible from the device that seems to be the source of the problem.
Interference from radio, TV, or other sources occurs.
This is caused by the proximity of a high-power broadcasting station, an
amateur ham radio setup or a mobile phone.
Electone causes some noise.
A cell phone may be used in the proximity of Electone. Using a cell phone
beside the Electone may cause a noise. Turn off the power of the cell phone.
Radio/ or TV generates some noise.
Locating a radio/ or TV close to the Electone causes to produce a noise from it.
Relocate it farther from the Electone.
The sound of the Electone causes surrounding
objects to resonate.
Because the Electone is capable of producing powerful bass sounds, resonance
may be caused in surrounding objects, such as cabinets or glass windows.
To avoid this, relocate the objects or lower the Electone’s volume.
The sound is too small even when the volume is
set to its maximum.
● The Master Volume may be set around the minimum position. Turn it
clockwise.
● The Expression Pedal may not be pressed down. Press it down with your
toe.
The Electone panel does not function normally or
the content of the memorized data has changed.
This happens very rarely. Occasionally, power surges and spikes due to
electrical storms or other reasons may cause the Electone to malfunction and/or
alter the contents of memorized data. In this case, turn off the power switch and
then turn the power back to on while holding down the PEDAL/2 button in the
Keyboard Percussion section (Power-On Reset).
VOICES/RHYTHMS
9
Appendix
70
The pitch seems to be higher on the Pedalboard and
lower on the Upper and Lower keyboards.
You may feel it especially when playing piano voice. The temperament for the
acoustic piano is adjusted by listening to the overtones since the overtone
configuration of the piano voice is so complicated that the actual notes in the
higher and lower registers are difficult to be adjusted. On the contrary, the
Electone voices including piano voice are tuned by actual notes. Thus, the
tuning method itself in the higher and lower registers is different.
Some voices seems to contain crack or distorted noise.
You may feel it mainly with wind instrument voices. These are purposely built
in effects, which can faithfully reproduce the characteristics of each instrument.
You can enjoy more realistic sounds such as brass vibration and breath noise.
When too many keys are pressed, not all of
the notes sound.
Total polyphonic capacity (notes sounding for both Upper and Lower
Keyboards) is 12 notes. The notes exceeding this limit may not be produced.
Only a note will be produced when pressing two
keys or more on the Pedalboard and/or Lead voice.
The Lead and Pedal voices are designed to sound one note at a time. When you
simultaneously press two or more keys, only the highest note will sound.
Sound is produced even when the volume is set to
off on the specific keyboard.
The sound may not be adjustable when you play back the data created with an
upper model and not controllable with EL-200.
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
VOICES/RHYTHMS
Pedalboard doesn’t sound, even when its volume
is properly set.
The TO LOWER button in the Pedal Voice is turned on. Turn it off.
When keys on the Lower keyboard or pedalboard are Keyboard Percussion function is set to on. Turn the Keyboard Percussion off.
pressed, the sounds of percussion instruments are
also heard.
Reverb
The Reverb effect does not operate, even when
Reverb volume is increased.
The Reverb setting of the targeted voice group is set to 0. When you load the
data of an upper model to EL-200 and the reverb volume for each voice group
is set to 0. In that data, you cannot get Reverb effect.
Registration Memory
Certain functions have not been memorized to
Registration Memory.
The following functions will not be memorized:
On/off functions such as Rhythm Start, Synchro Start, Fill-in, Intro./Ending.
MDR select buttons. See page 47 for more information.
An error occurs and the registration data is not
recorded to M.D.R., when executing To Disk
operation.
Your operation may be wrong or the Write-protect tab of the floppy disk is set
to on. Check your operation.
A simple beep sound is produced when I press the
Basic Regist. Button.
When the contents of the SEQ buttons are different from Electone’s default
settings (you may have loaded the sequence data from the upper models),
pressing one of the Basic Regist. buttons restores the original data and give a
simple beep sound to notify it.
MUSIC DISK RECORDER
The PLAY or RECORD section buttons for selecting parts may be turned off.
Turn on the appropriate PLAY or RECORD buttons.
A total of 40 songs cannot be recorded.
If some song numbers contain a large amount of recorded data, the disk may
not have enough available memory left to record the normal maximum of 40
songs. Check the remaining memory.
Recording is stopped before the performance is
finished, or the Song Copy function cannot be
executed.
● The amount of recorded data on the disk is close to the maximum limit.
Either use another disk or delete the data of any unnecessary song number.
● The length of a subsequently recorded part cannot exceed the length of the
previously recorded parts. If you want to change the song length, first delete
the existing song and record again.
The rhythm does not start at the beginning of a
recording, or stops in the middle of the performance.
The M.D.R. is designed so that the rhythm cannot be started at the very
beginning of a recording. If you wish to use the rhythm, start it after the
available memory display appears on the M.D.R. display.
The notes of the recording are “stuck” and sound
continuously.
During playback, you removed the disk by pressing the EJECT button.
Press the STOP button and abort the operation. Whenever you wish to stop
playback, always press the STOP button.
