PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep this manual 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:
Power supply/AC power adaptor
Water warning
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required
voltage is printed on the name plate of the instrument.
• Use the specified adaptor (PA-5D, PA-5C or an equivalent recommended by
Yamaha) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument
or overheating.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have
accumulated on it.
• Do not place the AC adaptor 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.
Do not open
• 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.
• Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
Fire warning
• Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit.
A burning item may fall over and cause a fire.
If you notice any abnormality
• If the AC adaptor 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 adaptor plug from the outlet, and have the instrument inspected
by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
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:
Power supply/AC power adaptor
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold
the plug itself and not the cord.
• Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during
electrical storms.
• Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector.
Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating in the
outlet.
• When the batteries run out, or if the instrument is not to be used for a long time,
remove the batteries from the instrument to prevent possible leakage of the
battery fluid.
• Keep batteries away from children.
• If the batteries do leak, avoid contact with the leaked fluid. If the battery fluid
should come in contact with your eyes, mouth, or skin, wash immediately with
water and consult a doctor. Battery fluid is corrosive and may possibly cause
loss of sight or chemical burns.
Location
Battery
• 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.
• Always make sure all batteries are inserted in conformity with the +/- polarity
markings. Failure to do so might result in overheating, fire, or battery fluid
leakage.
4
• Always replace all batteries at the same time. Do not use new batteries together
with old ones. Also, do not mix battery types, such as alkaline batteries with
manganese batteries, or batteries from different makers, or different types of
batteries from the same maker, since this can cause overheating, fire, or battery
fluid leakage.
• Do not use the instrument in the vicinity of a TV, radio, stereo equipment,
mobile phone, or other electric devices. Otherwise, the instrument, TV, or radio
may generate noise.
• Do not dispose of batteries in fire.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other cables.
• Do not attempt to recharge batteries that are not intended to be charged.
• Use only the stand specified for the instrument. When attaching the stand or
rack, use the provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause damage to the
internal components or result in the instrument falling over.
(4)-8
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally
fall over.
1/2
• 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.
Connections
• 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 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.
Saving data
Saving and backing up your data
Maintenance
For instruments with RAM that retains data by using dry cell batteries
or a power adaptor
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners,
solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.
• As long as dry cell batteries are installed or the power adaptor is connected, the
instrument retains the internal data when the power is turned off. If you remove
the batteries and disconnect the adaptor, the data will be lost. Save important
data to a floppy disk/external media such as the Yamaha MDF3 MIDI data filer.
Keep the power adaptor connected while you replace the batteries to prevent
loss of data.
Handling caution
• Do not insert a finger or hand in any gaps on the instrument.
• Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the panel
or keyboard. If this happens, turn off the power immediately and unplug the
power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the instrument inspected by qualified
Yamaha service personnel.
Backing up the floppy disk
• To protect against data loss through media damage, we recommend that you
save your important data onto two floppy disks.
• Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might
discolor the panel or keyboard.
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.
When using a power adaptor, even when the power switch is in the “STANDBY” position, electricity is still flowing to the instrument at the minimum level. When you are not
using the instrument for a long time, make sure you unplug the AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet.
Make sure to discard used batteries according to local regulations.

Congratulations on your purchase of the Yamaha DGX-500/300 Portable Grand ™ !
You now own a portable keyboard that combines advanced functions, great sound and
exceptional ease-of-use in a highly compact package. Its outstanding features also
make it a remarkably expressive and versatile instrument.
Read this Owner’s Manual carefully while playing your new DGX-500/300 in order to
take full advantage of its various features.
Main Features
The DGX-500/300 is a sophisticated yet easy-to-use keyboard with the following features and functions:
■ MUSIC DATABASE ............................. page 53
The DGX-500/300 has an advanced, easy-to-use Music Database feature that automatically selects the style, voice, and
effect settings for playing in a specific type of music. This can be a big help if you know what genre of music you want
to play, but you don’t know what settings to make. Just select the genre, and the DGX-500/300 takes care of the rest!
■ Disk Drive ............................. page 73
The DGX-500/300 also features a convenient floppy disk drive letting you load and save your own original User Songs
or load the Style Files. The DGX-500/300 is also compatible with a wide variety of disk formats, allowing you to play
back song data on commercially available GM, DOC, and Clavinova Disklavier Piano Soft disks.
It also allows you to save and play back Standard MIDI File (SMF) format 0 data,making it possible to use song data
with your favorite sequencer or sequencingsoftware.
■ Powerful Speaker System
The built-in stereo amplifier/speaker system of the DGX-500/300 with a special Bass Boost feature — provides exceptionally powerful, high-quality sound, letting you hear the full dynamic range of the DGX-500/300’s authentic voices.
■ GM System Level 1
“GM System Level 1” is an addition to the MIDI standard which ensures that any GM-compatible music data can be
accurately played by any GM-compatible tone generator, regardless of manufacturer. The GM mark is affixed to all
software and hardware products that support GM System Level.
■ XGlite
As its name implies, “XGlite” is a simplified version of Yamaha’s high-quality XG tone generation format. Naturally,
you can play back any XG song data using an XGlite tone generator. However, keep in mind that some songs may
play back differently compared to the original data, due to the reduced set of control parameters and effects.
Other powerful features include:
• The advanced Yamaha Education Suite — a special set of
learning tools that make it easy and fun to master the keyboard.
These tools include Lesson, which guides you through the
parts of a song just as a teacher would, Grade, which evaluates
your practice sessions and rates your performance, and Dictionary, which teaches you how to play chords.
• Instant Portable Grand function, for automatically configuring the DGX-500/300 for optimum piano play. Includes an
authentic Stereo Sampled Piano voice.
• 619 exceptionally realistic and dynamic voices, utilizing digital recordings of actual instruments.
• Special Split voices, with two different voices playable from
separate sections of the keyboard.
• 12 different Drum Kit voices, with individual drum and percussion sounds on each key.
6
• High-quality Reverb, DSP, and Harmony effects for enhancing the sound of the voices — and your performance.
• 135 auto accompaniment styles, each with Intro, Main A and
B, and Ending sections. An Auto Fill function adds dynamic
fills when switching sections.
• Powerful, easy-to-use song recording operations, for recording and playing back up to five of your original songs.
• Registration Memory presets for storing all of the DGX-500/
300’s panel settings to a single button for instant and automatic
recall.

appropriate voice to match the style or song you select.
• Touch Response and Dynamic Filter that give you extraordinarily expressive control over the voices. They automatically
change both the volume and tone according to your playing
strength — just like a real musical instrument!

Setting Up
This section contains information about setting up your DGX-500/300 for playing. Make sure to
read this section carefully before using the instrument.
Power Requirements
Although the DGX-500/300 will run either from an AC adaptor or batteries,
Yamaha recommends use of an AC adaptor whenever possible. An AC adaptor is
more environmentally friendly than batteries and does not deplete resources.
■ Using an AC Power Adaptor • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
q Make sure that the [STANDBY/ON] switch of the DGX-500/300 is set to
STANDBY.
w Connect the AC adaptor (PA-5D, PA-5C or other adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha) to the power supply jack.
e Plug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.
w
e
• Never interrupt the power supply (e.g. remove the batteries
or unplug the AC adaptor) during any DGX-500/300 record
operation! Doing so can result
in a loss of data.
• Use ONLY a Yamaha PA-5D, PA5C AC Power Adaptor (or other
adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha) to power
your instrument from the AC
mains. The use of other adaptors may result in irreparable
damage to both the adaptor
and the DGX-500/300.
• Unplug the AC Power Adaptor
when not using the DGX-500/
300, or during electrical
storms.
■ Using Batteries • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
For battery operation the DGX-500/300 requires six 1.5V “D” size, R20P (LR20)
or equivalent batteries. (Alkaline batteries are recommended.) When the batteries
need to be replaced, the volume may be reduced, the sound may be distorted, and
other problems may occur. When this happens, turn the power off and replace the
batteries, as described below
q Turn the instrument upside-down on the soft cloth, then open the battery compartment cover located on the instrument’s bottom panel.
w Insert the six new batteries as shown in the illustration, making sure that the
positive and negative terminals are properly aligned.
e Replace the compartment cover, making sure that it locks firmly in place.
10
• When the batteries run down,
replace them with a complete
set of six new batteries.
NEVER mix old and new batteries.
• Do not use different kinds of
batteries (e.g. alkaline and
manganese) at the same time.
• If the instrument is not to be in
use for a long time, remove the
batteries from it, in order to
prevent possible fluid leakage
from the battery.
• Do not open the battery compartment cover while the
instrument is still on the stand.
Make sure to properly turn the
instrument face down when
opening the battery compartment cover.
Setting Up
Turning On the Power
With the AC power adaptor connected or
with batteries installed, simply press the
power switch until it locks in the ON position. When the instrument is not in use, be
sure to turn the power off. (Press the switch
again so that it pops up.)
• Even when the switch is in the “STANDBY” position,
electricity is still flowing to the instrument at the minimum level. When you are not using the DGX-500/300 for
a long time, make sure you unplug the AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet, and/or remove the batteries
from the instrument.
Accessory Jacks
■ Using Headphones• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
For private practicing and playing without disturbing others, connect a set of stereo headphones
to the rear panel PHONES/OUTPUT jack.
Sound from the built-in speaker system is automatically cut off when you insert a headphone
plug into this jack.
■ Connecting a Keyboard Amplifier or Stereo System • • • • • • •
Though the DGX-500/300 is equipped with a
built-in speaker system, you can also play it
through an external amplifier/speaker system.
First, make sure the DGX-500/300 and any external devices are turned off, then connect one end
of a stereo audio cable to the LINE IN or AUX IN
jack(s) of the other device and the other end to
the rear panel PHONES/OUTPUT jack on the
DGX-500/300.
Stereo System
• To prevent damage to the
speakers, set the volume of the
external devices at the minimum setting before connecting them. Failure to observe
these cautions may result in
electric shock or equipment
damage. Also, be sure to set
the volumes of all devices at
their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume controls
while playing the instrument to
set the desired listening level.
■ Using a Footswitch• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
This feature lets you use a footswitch (Yamaha
FC4 or FC5) to sustain the sound of the voices.
The footswitch functions the same way as a
damper pedal on an acoustic piano — press and
hold down the footswitch as you play the keyboard to sustain the sound.
• Make sure that the footswitch
plug is properly connected to the
FOOT SWITCH jack before turning on the power.
■ Using the MIDI Terminals • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
• Do not press the footswitch while
turning the power on. Doing this
changes the recognized polarity
of the footswitch, resulting in
reversed footswitch operation.
The DGX-500/300 also features MIDI terminals,
allowing you to interface the DGX-500/300 with
other MIDI instruments and devices. (For more
information, see page 84.)

Step 4 Lesson
Lesson 1 — Timing
Grade
This step lets you work on the timing of the notes. In Lesson 1, the particular note you play on the keyboard is
unimportant. The DGX-500/300 checks your timing and
how rhythmically “tight” your playing is.
The DGX-500/300 has a built-in evaluation function that
monitors your practicing and — like a real teacher — tells
you how well you did each exercise. Four grades are
assigned, depending on your performance: “OK,” “Good,”
“Very Good!,” and “Excellent!.”

Lesson 2 — Waiting
In Lesson 2, you practice playing the notes correctly as
they appear in the display notation. The accompaniment
pauses and waits for you to play the notes correctly before
it continues.
Naturally, you can change the tempo (speed) of the song
to your liking, letting you slow down difficult passages
and bring up the tempo gradually until you master them at
normal speed.

Playing Voices
The DGX-500/300 features a total of 619 authentic voices — all of which have been created with
Yamaha’s sophisticated AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) tone generation system. These
include 480 XG voices, plus special Split voices, DJ voices and drum kits.
The DGX-500/300 also has a Dual Voice function that lets you combine two different voices in a
layer, and play the two together across the keyboard.
The voices are divided into various instrument categories, and the names are printed on the panel for convenience. For a complete list of available voices, see page 91.
Special Split voices (#113 - #122) feature two different voices that you can play from separate area of the keyboard — for example, playing a bass voice with your left hand and a piano voice with your right.
A special set of DJ voices (#615 - #619) provides dynamic, exciting voices for playing many of today’s popular
music styles. (See page 97.)
The Voice mode also features special effect sections that let you enhance the sound of the voice. These include
Reverb and Harmony, as well as a “DSP” section that provides miscellaneous effects, such as tremolo, echo,
delay, equalization, and wah. (See page 34.)
There’s also a Touch Sensitivity control (page 32), which determines how the voices respond to your playing
technique.
The DGX-500/300 also includes special Drum Kit voices — #123 - #134 — that let you play various drum and
percussion sounds from the keyboard. (Refer to the Drum Kit Voice list on page 100.)
When a voice is selected, the most suitable DSP Type (page 36) and Harmony Type (page 37) for the voice are
automatically called up.

There are two ways to select voices: 1) directly entering the voice number
with the numeric keypad, or 2) using the [+]/[-] buttons to step up and down
through the voice numbers.
■ Using the numeric keypad
Enter the digits of the voice number as indicated on the panel. For example,
to select voice #109, press “1” on the numeric keypad, then “0”, “9.” For
voice numbers beginning with zeroes (such as #042 or #006), the initial
zeroes may be omitted. In this case, there is a short pause before the indication appears.

■ Using the [+]/[-] buttons
Press the [+] button to select the next voice number, and press the [-] button
to select the previous voice. Holding down either button continuously
scrolls up or down through the numbers.

• Each voice is automatically called
up with the most suitable octave
range setting. Thus, playing middle C with one voice may sound
higher or lower than another
voice at the same key.
Play the selected voice.
Since either the Style or Song mode is active in the background (as indicated
by the illustration in the display), you can also play styles or songs, respectively, in the Voice mode by simply pressing the [START/STOP] button. The
last selected style or song will be played.

Pitch Bend Range
The DGX-500/300 has a [PITCH BEND] wheel that lets you change the pitch of
the voices in real time, as you play. The Pitch Bend Range parameter determines
the amount that pitch is raised or lowered when using the [PITCH BEND] wheel.
At the minimum setting, moving the [PITCH BEND] wheel up or down changes
the pitch by a maximum of 1 semitone or half-step in either direction. At the maximum setting of 12, pitch is changed over a range of ± one octave (12 semitones).
The [PITCH BEND] wheel affects the voices played in the right-hand section of
the keyboard. (It has no effect on the auto accompaniment.)

Description
Harmony types 1 - 5 are pitch-based and add one-, two- or threenote harmonies to the single-note melody played in the right hand.
These types only sound when chords are played in the auto accompaniment area of the keyboard.
3
3
Types 6 - 26 are rhythm-based effects and add embellishments or
delayed repeats in time with the auto accompaniment. These types
sound whether the auto accompaniment is on or not; however, the
actual speed of the effect depends on the Tempo setting (page 44).
The individual note values in each type let you synchronize the effect precisely to the rhythm. Triplet settings are also available: 1/6
= quarter-note triplets, 1/12 = eighth-note triplets, 1/24 = sixteenthnote triplets.
• The Trill effect Types (6 - 12) create two-note trills (alternating
notes) when two notes are held.
3
• The Tremolo effect Types (13 - 19) repeat all held notes (up to
four).
• The Echo effect Types (20 - 26) create delayed repeats of each
note played.

Selecting and Playing Styles
The DGX-500/300 provides dynamic rhythm/accompaniment patterns (styles) — as well as
voice settings appropriate for each style — for various popular musical categories.
A total of 135 different styles are available, in several different categories. Each style is made up of separate
“sections” — Intro, Main A and B, and Ending — letting you call up different accompaniment sections as you
perform.
The style features that are built into the rhythms add the excitement of instrumental backing to your performance, letting you control the accompaniment by the chords you play. Auto accompaniment effectively splits
the keyboard into two areas: The upper is used for playing a melody line, and the lower (set by default to keys
F#2 and lower) is for the auto accompaniment function.
The DGX-500/300 also features the convenient Dictionary function (page 50). Dictionary provides you with a
built-in “chord encyclopedia” that teaches you how to play any chord you specify by showing you the appropriate notes in the display.
The DGX-500/300 can also be used with the included disk or commercially available Style File data, allowing
you to load additional styles (auto accompaniment patterns) to the instrument. Style File data is loaded individually as style number 136, and can be played just like the preset styles.

■ Using Tap Tempo to Start
This useful feature lets you tap out the speed (tempo) of the style and automatically start the style at that tapped speed.
Simply tap the [TEMPO/TAP] button four times (or three times for a 3/4
time style), and the style starts automatically at the tempo you tapped. You
can also change the tempo while the style is playing by tapping the
[TEMPO/TAP] button twice at the desired tempo.
■ Using Sync Start
The DGX-500/300 also has a Sync Start function that allows you to start the
style by simply pressing a key on the keyboard. To use Sync Start, first press
the [SYNC START] button (the beat marks all flash to indicate Sync Start
stand-by), then press any key on the keyboard. (When auto accompaniment
is on, play a key or chord in the auto accompaniment area of the keyboard.)

Change chords using the auto accompaniment feature.
Try playing a few successive chords with your left hand, and notice how the
bass and chord accompaniment change with each chord you play. (Refer to
page 47 for more information on how to use auto accompaniment.)
• The [ACMP] button can also be
used to turn off and on the bass/
chord accompaniment while playing — allowing you to create
dynamic rhythmic breaks in your
performance.
• You can use the Sync Stop function to create a similar, yet even
more dramatic break. With Sync
Stop on (page 43), you can control breaks in the rhythm and
accompaniment simply by releasing your fingers from the keys.
As long as you play and hold a
chord, the accompaniment continues. When you release it, the
accompaniment stops. You can
also use this feature to create
exciting rhythmic stutter effects,
chord hits, and accents by playing staccato chords.
• Chords played in the auto accompaniment area of the keyboard
are also detected and played
when the style is stopped. In
effect, this gives you a “split keyboard,” with bass and chords in
the left hand and the normally
selected voice in the right.
4
Stop the style.
You can do this in one of three ways:
■ Pressing the [START/STOP] button
The style stops playing immediately.
■ Using an Ending section
Press the [INTRO ENDING] button. The style stops after the Ending section
is finished.
■ Pressing the [SYNC START] button
This immediately stops style and automatically enables Sync Start, letting
you re-start the style by simply playing a chord or key in the auto accompaniment area of the keyboard.
42
• To have the Ending section gradually slow down (ritardando) as it
is playing, press the [INTRO
ENDING] button twice quickly.
Selecting and Playing Styles
Sync Stop
This convenient feature lets you stop (or pause) the style by releasing your fingers
from the auto accompaniment area of the keyboard. Playing the chord again
restarts the style. This is ideal for putting dynamic breaks in your performance —
for example, stopping the rhythm and accompaniment briefly while you play a
melodic break or solo with your right hand.

MAIN/AUTO FILL (Main A/B and Fill-ins)
While the style is playing, you can add variation in the rhythm/accompaniment by
pressing the [MAIN/AUTO FILL] button. This switches between the Main A and
Main B sections, automatically playing a fill-in pattern to smoothly lead into the
next section. For example, if the Main A section is currently playing, pressing this
button automatically plays a fill-in pattern, followed by the Main B section. (See
below.)
You can also select either the Main A or B section to start by pressing the [MAIN/
AUTO FILL] button before starting the style.

Using Auto Accompaniment — Multi Fingering
When it is set to on (page 39), the auto accompaniment function automatically
generates bass and chord accompaniment for you to play along with, by using
Multi Fingering operation. You can change the chords of the accompaniment by
playing keys in the auto accompaniment area of the keyboard using either the
“Single Finger” or “Fingered” method. With Single Finger you can simply play a
one-, two- or three-finger chord indication (see Single Finger Chords below). The
Fingered technique is that of conventionally playing all the notes of the chord.
Whichever method you use, the DGX-500/300 “understands” what chord you
indicate and then automatically generates the accompaniment.
■ Single Finger Chords • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
Chords that can be produced in Single Finger operation are major, minor, seventh
and minor seventh. The illustration shows how to produce the four chord types.
(The key of C is used here as an example; other keys follow the same rules. For
example, Bb7 is played as Bb and A.)

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • What is a Chord? • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
The simple answer: Three or more notes played simultaneously is a chord. (Two notes played
together is an “interval” — an interval being the distance between two different notes. This is also
referred to as a “harmony.”) Depending on the intervals between the three or more notes, a chord
can sound beautiful or muddy and dissonant.
The organization of notes in the example at left — a triad chord — produces a pleasant, harmonious sound. Triads are made up of three notes
and are the most basic and common chords in most music.
In this triad, the lowest note is the “root.” The root is the most important note in the chord, because
it anchors the sound harmonically by determining its “key” and forms the basis for how we hear the
other notes of the chord.
The second note of this chord is four semitones higher than the first, and the third is three semitones
higher than the second. Keeping our root note fixed and changing these notes by a semitone up or
down (sharp or flat), we can create four different chords.

Keep in mind that we can also change the “voicing” of a chord — for example, change the order of
the notes (called “inversions”), or play the same notes in different octaves — without changing the
basic nature of the chord itself.

Beautiful sounding harmonies can be built in this manner. The use of intervals and chords is one of
the most important elements in music. A wide variety of emotions and feelings can be created
depending on the types of chords used and the order in which they are arranged.
• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Writing Chord Names • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
Knowing how to read and write chord names is an easy yet invaluable skill. Chords are often written in a kind of shorthand that makes them instantly recognizable (and gives you the freedom to
play them with the voicing or inversion that you prefer). Once you understand the basic principles
of harmony and chords, it’s very simple to use this shorthand to write out the chords of a song.
First, write the root note of the chord in an uppercase letter. If you need to specify sharp or flat,
indicate that to the right of the root. The chord type should be indicated to the right as well. Examples for the key of C are shown below.
Major chord
Minor chord
Augmented chord
Diminished chord
C
Cm
Caug
Cdim
For simple major chords, the type is omitted.
One important point: Chords are made up of notes “stacked” on top of each other, and the stacked
notes are indicated in the chord name of the chord type as a number — the number being the distance of the note from the root. (See the keyboard diagram below.) For example, the minor 6th
chord includes the 6th note of the scale, the major 7th chord has the 7th note of the scale, etc.

* The indication “F t” appears in the display when a song
having a “free” tempo is selected.
Certain songs have been composed or arranged in “free”
tempo, meaning that the tempo and/or the time signature
are not constant during the piece. As a result, when a
“free” tempo song plays back, the measure, beat and timing indications are not shown in the display.
About the Beat Display
The arrow marks in the beat display flash in time
with the rhythm of the song or style. The first arrow
indicates the first beat of the measure, and the others flash in sequence.

Melody Voice Change
The DGX-500/300 lets you play a melody on the keyboard along with each of the
songs, either with the original melody voice or one of your own selection. The
convenient Melody Voice Change feature takes this one step further — it lets you
replace the original voice used for the melody of the song with the panel voice of
your own selection. For example, if the current voice selected on the panel is
piano but the song’s melody is being played by a flute voice, using Melody Voice
Change will change the flute melody voice to piano.

Song Recording
The DGX-500/300 features powerful and easy-to-use song recording features that let you
record your keyboard performances — using up to six independent tracks (including one track
for accompaniment) — for creating your own complete, fully orchestrated compositions. You
can record and save up to five User songs.
rEC User 1

Song Memory Capacity
• Maximum number of notes :
approximately 10,000 (when only
“melody” tracks are recorded)
• Maximum number of chords :
approximately 5,500 (when only
the accompaniment track is
recorded)
Song recording on the DGX-500/300 is similar to using a tape recorder; whatever
you play on the keyboard is recorded in real time as you play it. Also, when you
record subsequent parts to other tracks, you can hear the previously recorded parts
as you record new ones.
Recording a User Song
Data that can be recorded to the normal (melody) tracks:
• Note on/off
• Velocity
• Voice Number
• Reverb Type*
• Chorus Type*
• DSP Type*
• Sustain
• Pitch Bend data
• Tempo*, Time Signature* (if there is no such data in the Accompaniment track)
• When using a Split Voice for
recording, the voice assigned to
the left of the split point cannot
be recorded.
Data that can be recorded to the Accompaniment track:
• Style number*
• Chord changes and timing
• Changing sections (Intro, Main A/B, etc.)
• Reverb Type*
• DSP Type*
• Accompaniment Volume*
• Tempo, Time Signature*
* These settings can only be recorded once at the beginning of a song; other
settings can be changed in the middle of a song.

Make all desired DGX-500/300 settings.
Before you actually start recording, you’ll need to make various settings for
the song — such as selecting a style, setting the Tempo, and selecting a
voice. (See pages 38, 44, and 24.)
If desired, also make other settings. Refer to the list above for settings that
can be recorded to a song.
Using the Metronome
You can use the Metronome instead of a style if desired. This allows you to keep your performance “in time,” even
when recording without style. To do this, press the [METRONOME] button before recording in step #4 below. After
the song is completely recorded, simply play back the song with the Metronome turned off. (See page 22.)

• Keep in mind that all recording
operations “replace” the data.
In other words, if you record to
a track that already has
recorded data, all previous
data in the track will be erased
and replaced by the newly
recorded data.
● Muting Tracks During Playback
While recording is enabled, you can selectively mute different tracks. This is useful for when you want to clearly
hear certain tracks, and not others, during recording. Muting can also be done “on the fly” during playback. To use
muting, press the corresponding SONG MEMORY button, repeatedly if necessary, until the desired track number
in the display is off.
Each press of a SONG MEMORY button (when playback is stopped) cycles through the following settings:
Track number off — Track is muted.
Track number flashes — Track will record.*
* Cannot be selected during playback.
Track number on — Track will play back.
■ Recording to the Accompaniment Track
A special Accompaniment track is provided for recording accompaniment
data. This is automatically recorded to the Accompaniment track (track A).
Selecting the Accompaniment track automatically turns on the accompaniment.

Song Lesson
The Lesson feature provides an exceptionally fun and easy-to-use way to learn how to read
music and play the keyboard. There are a total of 100 songs (Songs 001 to 100), specially
designed for use with the educational features. Lesson lets you practice the left- and righthand parts of each song independently, step by step, until you’ve mastered them and are ready
to practice with both hands together. These practices are divided into four Lesson steps, as
described below. Lessons 1 - 3 apply to each hand; press the appropriate button, [L] (left) or
[R] (right) to select the desired part for practice.
Naturally, you can also use Song data you’ve loaded from disk with the Lesson features.
■ Lesson 1 — Timing
This lesson step lets you practice just the timing of the notes — any note
can be used, as long as you play in rhythm.
■ Lesson 2 — Waiting
In this lesson step, the DGX-500/300 waits for you to play the correct notes
before continuing playback of the song.
■ Lesson 3 — Minus One
This lesson step plays back the song with one part muted, letting you play
and master the missing part yourself — in rhythm and at the proper tempo.
■ Lesson 4 — Both Hands
Lesson 4 is a “Minus One” practice essentially the same as Lesson 3,
except that both the left- and right-hand parts are muted — letting you play
and master both hands at the same time.

Disk Operations
The DGX-500/300 features a convenient floppy disk drive — built right into the instrument. Let
you record and play back your own original User Songs, it allows you to save and load important DGX-500/300 data.
Moreover, since the DGX-500/300 is compatible with a wide variety
of disk formats, you can play back song data on commercially available GM (General MIDI), DOC (Disk Orchestra Collection), and
Clavinova Disklavier Piano Soft disks.
It also allows you to save and play back Standard MIDI File (SMF)
format 0 data.
The DGX-500/300 can also be used with the included disk or commercially available Style File data, allowing you to load additional
styles (auto accompaniment patterns) to the instrument. Style File
data is loaded individually as style number 136, and can be played
just like the preset styles. Once loaded, the Style File data can then
be saved in combination with User songs.

■ Using Commercially Available Music Data (sold separately)
• While any of the disk-related displays are shown (called up by
pressing the LOAD, SAVE, or
UTILITY buttons), no panel operations can be executed (except
for disk operations), and playing
the keyboard does not produce
any sound.
The DGX-500/300 is compatible with music disks (floppy disks) that bear the following marks:
You can playback song files collected on these disks using the voices
defined in the GM standard. (See page 75)
“GM System Level 1” is an addition to the MIDI standard which ensures
that any GM-compatible music data can be accurately played by any
GM-compatible tone generator, regardless of manufacturer. The GM
mark is affixed to all software and hardware products that support GM
System Level 1. The DGX-500/300 supports GM System Level 1.
As its name implies, “XGlite” is a simplified version of Yamaha’s highquality XG tone generation format. Naturally, you can play back any
XG song data using an XGlite tone generator. However, keep in mind
that some songs may play back differently compared to the original data,
due to the reduced set of control parameters and effects.
• User Songs and Disk Style data
(style number 136) are saved
and loaded as a single file on the
DGX-500/300.
• To ensure proper data storage,
use only disks that have been
formatted on the DGX-500/300
(page 81).
• The three letters following the file
name (after the period) are
referred to as a file “extension.”
The extension indicates the type
of file.
You can playback song files collected on these disks using the voices
defined in Yamaha’s DOC format. (See page 75)
The DOC voice allocation format provides data playback compatibility
with a wide range of Yamaha instruments and MIDI devices, including
the Clavinova series.
You can load and play with the style files collected on these disks. (See
page 79)
The Style File Format — SFF — is Yamaha’s original style file format
which uses a unique conversion system to provide high-quality automatic accompaniment based on a wide range of chord types. The DGX500/300 uses the SFF data internally, reading from optional SFF style
disks.
73
Disk Operations
Using the Floppy Disk Drive (FDD) and Floppy Disk
Be sure to handle floppy disks and treat the disk drive with
care. Follow the important precautions below.
■ Compatible Disk Type
3.5" 2DD and 2HD type floppy disks can be used.
● Never attempt to remove the disk or turn the power off during recording, reading and playing back (when the DISK IN
USE lamp is lit). Doing so can damage the disk and possibly the disk drive.
● 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.
■ Inserting/Ejecting Floppy Disks
● To insert a floppy disk into the disk drive:
• 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.
■ Cleaning the Disk Drive Read/Write Head
● Clean the read/write head regularly. This instrument
employs a precision magnetic read/write head which, after
an extended period of use, will pick up a layer of magnetic
particles from the disks used that 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. Ask your Yamaha dealer about the availability of proper head-cleaning disks.
● Never insert anything but floppy disks into the disk drive.
Other objects may cause damage to the disk drive or
floppy disks.
• When the DGX-500/300 is turned on, the LED below the floppy
disk slot will be lit indicating that the Disk Drive is ready to use.
● To eject a floppy disk:
• Before ejecting the disk, be sure to confirm that the FDD is
stopped. 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.
This lamp lights during disk read/write operations,
such as when a disk has been inserted, during
recording, playback, formatting, etc.
■ About the Floppy Disks
● To handle floppy 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 expose the disk to direct sunlight, extremely high or
low temperatures, or excessive humidity, dust or liquids.
• 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.
● 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).
This lamp is always on when the power is on,
regardless of Disk operation.
• 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. 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.

MIDI Functions
The DGX-500/300 is MIDI-compatible, featuring MIDI IN and MIDI OUT terminals and providing a
variety of MIDI-related controls. By using the MIDI functions you can expand your musical
possibilities. This section explains what MIDI is, and what it can do, as well as how you can use
MIDI on your DGX-500/300.
What Is MIDI?
No doubt you have heard the terms “acoustic instrument” and “digital instrument.” In the world today, these are the two main categories of instruments. Let’s
consider an acoustic piano and a classical guitar as representative acoustic instruments. They are easy to understand. With the piano, you strike a key, and a hammer inside hits some strings and plays a note. With the guitar, you directly pluck a
string and the note sounds. But how does a digital instrument go about playing a
note?
Acoustic guitar note production
Digital instrument note production
L
Sampling
Note
Tone Generator
(Electronic circuit)
Sampling
Note
R
Playing the keyboard
Pluck a string and the body
resonates the sound.
Based on playing information from the keyboard, a
sampling note stored in the tone generator is played
through the speakers.
As shown in the illustration above, in an electronic instrument the sampling note
(previously recorded note) stored in the tone generator section (electronic circuit)
is played based on information received from the keyboard. So then what is the
information from the keyboard that becomes the basis for note production?
For example, let’s say you play a “C” quarter note using the grand piano sound on
the DGX-500/300 keyboard. Unlike an acoustic instrument that puts out a resonated note, the electronic instrument puts out information from the keyboard such
as “with what voice,” “with which key,” “about how strong,” “when was it
pressed,” and “when was it released.” Then each piece of information is changed
into a number value and sent to the tone generator. Using these numbers as a
basis, the tone generator plays the stored sampling note.
● Example of Keyboard Information
Voice number (with what voice)
Note number (with which key)
Note on (when was it pressed) and
note off (when was it released)
Velocity (about how strong)
01 (Live! Grand)
60 (C3)
Timing expressed numerically (quarter note)
20 (strong)
GM System Level 1
“GM System Level 1” is an addition to the MIDI standard which ensures that any GM-compatible music data can be accurately played by any GM-compatible tone generator, regardless of
manufacturer. The GM mark is affixed to all software and hardware products that support GM
System Level 1. The DGX-500/300 supports GM System Level 1.
83
MIDI Functions
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 DGX-500/300 can control a MIDI device by transmitting note related data
and various types of controller data. The DGX-500/300 can be controlled by the
incoming MIDI messages which automatically determine tone generator mode,
select MIDI channels, voices and effects, change parameter values and of course
play the voices specified for the various parts.
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 DGX-500/300 can receive/transmit.
● Channel Messages
The DGX-500/300 is an electronic instrument that can handle 16 channels. This is
usually expressed as “it can play 16 instruments at the same time.” Channel messages transmit information such as Note ON/OFF, Program Change, for each of
the 16 channels.
Message Name
Note ON/OFF
Program Change
Control Change
DGX-500/300 Operation/Panel Setting
Messages which are generated when the keyboard is played. 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 stuck.
Voice number (along with corresponding bank select MSB/LSB settings, if necessary).
Messages that are used to change some aspect of the sound (modulation, volume, pan, etc.).
● System Messages
This is data that is used in common by the entire MIDI system. System messages
include messages like Exclusive Messages that transmit data unique to each
instrument manufacturer and Realtime Messages that control the MIDI device.

The messages transmitted/received by the DGX-500/300 are shown in the MIDI
Implementation Chart on page 102.
MIDI Terminals
In order to exchange MIDI data between multiple
devices, each device must be connected by a cable.
The MIDI terminals of the DGX-500/300 are located on
the rear panel.
MIDI IN
MIDI OUT
84
Receives MIDI data from another MIDI device.
Transmits the DGX-500/300’s keyboard information as MIDI
data to another MIDI device.
• Special MIDI cables (sold separately) must be used for connecting to MIDI devices. They can be
bought at music stores, etc.
• Never use MIDI cables longer
than about 15 meters. Cables
longer than this can pick up noise
which can cause data errors.
MIDI Functions
Connecting to a Personal Computer
By connecting your DGX-500/300’s MIDI terminals to a personal computer, you
can have access to a wide variety of music software.
When using a MIDI interface device installed in the personal computer, connect

Local Control
This function lets you enable or disable keyboard control over the DGX-500/
300’s voices. This would come in handy, for example, when recording notes to
MIDI sequencer. If you are using the sequencer to play back the voices of the
DGX-500/300, you would want to set this to “off” — in order to avoid getting
“double” notes, both from the keyboard and from the sequencer. Normally, when
playing the DGX-500/300 by itself, this should be set to “on.”

MIDI Functions
Using Initial Setup Send with a Sequencer
The most common use for the Initial Setup Send function is in recording a song
on a sequencer that is intended for playback with the DGX-500/300. Essentially,
this takes a “snapshot” of the DGX-500/300 settings and sends that data to the
sequencer. By recording this “snapshot” at the start of the song (before any actual
performance data), you can instantly restore the necessary settings on the DGX500/300. Provided there is a pause in the song, you could also do this in the middle of a song — for example, completely changing the DGX-500/300 settings for
the next section of the song.
■ Sending Initial Setup Data • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
1
First, set up the sequencer for recording.
The actual procedure may differ depending on your particular equipment and
software.
Ideally, you should leave two or more measures of silence (no performance
data) before the song begins. The Initial Setup data should then be recorded
to this space in the song.

• When the Initial Setup Send
operation is completed, the DGX500/300 automatically returns to
the previous panel condition.
External Clock
This determines whether the style and song playback functions are controlled by
the DGX-500/300’s internal clock (off) or by MIDI clock data from an external
sequencer or computer (on).
This should be set to on when you want to have style or song playback follow the
external device (such as a rhythm machine or a sequencer). The default setting is
off.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
When the DGX-500/300 is turned on or off, a popping sound is temporarily produced.
This is normal and indicates that the DGX-500/300 is receiving electrical power.
When using a mobile phone, noise is produced.
Using a mobile phone in close proximity to the DGX-500/300 may
produce interference. To prevent this, turn off the mobile phone or
use it further away from the DGX-500/300.
There is no sound even when the keyboard is
played or when a song is being played back.
Check that nothing is connected to the PHONES/OUTPUT jack on
the rear panel. When a set of headphones is plugged into this jack,
no sound is output.
Check the Local Control on/off. (See page 86.)
Playing keys in the right hand section of the keyboard does not produce any sound.
When using the Dictionary function (page 50), the keys in the right
hand section are used only for entering the chord root and type.
The sound of the voices or rhythms seems unusual or strange.
The battery power is too low. Replace the batteries. (See page 10.)
The song or style does not start playback.
Check the External Clock. (See page 88.)
The auto accompaniment doesn’t turn on, even
when pressing the [ACMP] button.
Make sure the Style mode is active before using the auto accompaniment. Press the [STYLE] button to enable style operations.
The accompaniment does not sound properly.
Make sure that the Accompaniment Volume (page 46) is set to an appropriate level.
Make sure that the Split Point (page 49) is set to an appropriate value.
When playing back one of the Pianist styles (#124
- #135), the rhythm cannot be heard.
This is normal. The Pianist styles have no drums or bass — only piano accompaniment. The accompaniment of the style can only be
heard when accompaniment is set to ON and keys are played in the
auto accompaniment area of the keyboard.
Not all of the voices seem to sound, or the sound
seems to be cut off.
The DGX-500/300 is polyphonic up to a maximum of 32 notes. If the
Dual voice or Split voice is being used and a style or song is playing
back at the same time, some notes/sounds may be omitted (or “stolen”) from the accompaniment or song.
A strange “flanging” or “doubling” sound occurs
when using the DGX-500/300 with a sequencer.
(This may also sound like a “dual” layered sound
of two voices, even when Dual is turned off.)
When using the accompaniment with a sequencer, set MIDI Echo (or
the relevant control) to “off.” (Refer to the owner’s manual of your particular device and/or software for details.)
The footswitch (for sustain) seems to produce the
opposite effect. For example, pressing the footswitch cuts off the sound and releasing it sustains
the sounds.
The polarity of the footswitch is reversed. Make sure that the footswitch plug is properly connected to the FOOT SWITCH jack before
turning on the power.
Do not press the pedal while turning the power on.
The sound of the voice changes from note to note.
The AWM tone generation method uses multiple recordings (samples) of an instrument across the range of the keyboard; thus, the actual sound of the voice may be slightly different from note to note.

The DGX-500/300 has 32-note maximum polyphony. This means that it can play
a maximum of up to 32 notes at once, regardless of what functions are used. Auto
Accompaniment uses a number of the available notes, so when Auto Accompaniment is used the total number of available notes for playing on the keyboard is
correspondingly reduced. The same applies to the Split Voice and Song functions.
• The Voice List includes MIDI program change numbers for each
voice. Use these program
change numbers when playing
the DGX-500/300 via MIDI from
an external device.

Drum Kit List
• “
” indicates that the drum sound is the same as “Standard Kit 1”.
• Each percussion voice uses one note.
• The MIDI Note # and Note are actually one octave lower than keyboard Note # and Note. For example, in “123:
Standard Kit 1”, the “Seq Click H” (Note# 36/Note C1) corresponds to (Note# 24/Note C0).
• Key Off: Keys marked “O” stop sounding the instant they are released.
• Voices with the same Alternate Note Number (*1 … 4) cannot be played simultaneously. (They are designed to be
played alternately with each other.)
