e Brilliance
This slide control adjusts the tonal quality of the sound.
When set to the center position the “normal” tone
is produced. As the BRILLIANCE control is moved
toward the MELLOW setting the high frequencies are
reduced, creating a softer, more mellow tone. As it
is moved toward the BRILLIANT setting the high
frequencies are emphasised, creating a brighter,
sharper tone.
e Tremolo
When this button is pressed a gentle swirling effect
is added to the sound.
e Ensemble
Pressing this button produces a lively ‘’shimmering’’
effect that adds depth to the sound.
e Chorus
When the CHORUS button is pressed a slow varia-
tion in the tonal quality of the sound provides a sense
of spaciousness.
e Effects of Using the Pedals
There are three different kinds of effects that can be
obtained by using the pedals, namely DAMPER, SOFT
and SOSTENUTO. The right pedal controls the
DAMPER effect, while the left pedal is used for either
* Damper
Pressing the stand's right pedal causes the sound to
continue when the key is released, much like an
acoustic piano.
Pressing the stand's left pedal softens the sound.
*SOSTENUTO (This effect is obtained by switching
the SOFT pedal.)
When the SOSTENUTO pedal is pressed, its effect is
applied only to notes of keys that are already being
pressed, providing a resonance similar to the DAMPER
effect. Depending on the music you are playing, you
can switch between the two effects of the left pedal
in the following way.
Switching between SOFT and SOSTENUTO
Press and hold down the TRANSPOSER/MIDI button,
then step on the stand's left pedal connected to the
The CHORUS lamp will light up, thus indicating that
the pedal you just pressed is currently used for the
*The lamp will indicate the pedal setting only as long as the TRANS-
POSER/MIDI button is being pressed. As soon as this button is
released, the lamp will again indicate the present setting of the
CHORUS effect.
if you want to switch the pedal back to the SOFT
effect, again press and hold down the TRANSPOSER/
MIDI button, then step on the pedal. The CHORUS
lamp will go out and the pedal will again control the
SOFT effect.
*When power is turned on, the effect of this pedal is always auto-
matically set to SOFT.

This jack is used for connecting a pair of stereo
headphones (optional). When the headphones are
connected, no sound will be produced from the
Clavinova’s speakers. This allows you the freedom of
playing your instrument at any time without disturb-
ing others.
e AUX.OUT L-R jacks
These jacks can be used to connect your Clavinova
to an amplifier or another speaker system. Also, by
connecting the Clavinova to the LINE IN jacks of a
tape deck, you can record music produced by the
® AUX.IN L-R jacks
You can use these jacks to play an external audio
source (tape recorder, Portable Keyboard, etc.)
through the Clavinova's speakers while you are per-
forming. Simply plug a connector cord into these
jacks and the LINE OUT/AUX.OUT jacks of your tape
deck, stereo or additional keyboard. The external
source must have its own volume level control. Never
connect it to an AC power line or to a speaker-level
e MIDI OUT/IN connectors
The MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface)
terminals conform to the MIDI standard for digital
electronic instruments. These jacks enable you to
connect your Clavinova to a computer or other
MIDI compatible electronic instruments for data
Always treat your Clavinova with the same care you
would give to any fine musical instrument. To ensure
that your Clavinova always looks and sounds its best,
we suggest the following procedures.
1. Do not repeatedly turn on and off in a short time.
If this is done, the unit may not work properly.
2. Never touch the internal parts.
3. Always turn the power switch OFF after playing,
and place the dust cover on the instrument.
4. Clean the cabinet and keys of your Clavinova
with a slightly dampened cloth using only a neutral
cleanser. Do not use abrasive cleaners, waxes,
solvents, or chemical dust cloths which may dull
the keys or chemically damage the finish.
5. Never put any vinyl products on your Clavinova
since its external coating reacts chemically to vinyl.
6. To protect the cabinet finish and joints, install
your Clavinova away from direct sunlight, excess
humidity and heat.
7. Do not hit or scratch the cabinet with hard
What to do if ...
1) The unit is not activated when the power is
turned on. Check the following:
Is the AC plug fully connected to a wall power outlet?
Check it again to make sure. Is power supplied from
the outlet? If the outlet is live, but the Clavinova
does not work, unplug the cord and contact your
Yamaha Clavinova dealer.
2) The Clavinova reproduces radio or TV signals.
This can occur if there is a powerful transmitter such
as a radio station located in your vicinity. Contact
your Yamaha Clavinova dealer.
3) Occasional unpleasant static occurs.
In the majority of such cases, the cause can be traced
to the turning on or off of some household appliance.
4) The Clavinova interferes with radio or TV recep-
The high frequency pulses used by the Clavinova
may adversely affect TV or radio reception. Please
read “FCC INFORMATION” (page 16) for additional
9) The sound of the Clavinova is distorted when
connected to an auxiliary speaker system.
When connected to an auxiliary speaker system,
(home stereo, guitar amplifier, etc.) distortion may
occur when the keys are played forcefully while either
the volume of the Clavinova or its auxiliary system
is too high. In addition, damage to the speakers could
result. Please turn the volume down to a level where
no distortion occurs.
The MIDI Function of Clavinova
What MIDI can do:
e Transmission/recognition of key on/off data.
e Transmission/recognition of panel voice numbers.
e Transmission/recognition of control for DAMPER
Clavinova Connection With Other MIDI
In the following section you will see how you can
actually connect your Clavinova with other MIDI
E Playing the Clavinova in ensemble with other
(Example: connected with the PortaTone)
Clavinova PortaTone
As shown in the illustration above, when the MIDI
OUT on the Clavinova is connected to the MIDI IN
on the PortaTone it is possible to produce sound
from the PortaTone while playing just the Clavinova.
In other words, the information produced by press-
ing the Clavinova keyboard is instantaneously trans-
mitted to the PortaTone, producing a richer sound.
It is also possible to utilize different voices on each
instrument. For example, it is possible to combine a
piano voice on the Clavinova with the strings voice
on the PortaTone so that a solo performer can give
a performance similar to a piano concerto. This is
just one of the many possible combinations. You
can also connect the MIDI OUT terminal of the
PortaTone to the MIDI IN terminal of the Clavinova
and play from the PortaTone keyboard.
a Playing the Clavinova With a Music Computer
Y ou can get further pleasure from your Clavinova by
playing it with a personal computer instead of playing
the keys yourself. Whether you use a music software
package or program your own software, the Clavinova
can be played automatically. In this case, the voices
can be freely selected on the control panel to match
the mood of the music.

While the following statements are provided to comply with FCC Regulations in the United States, the corrective measures
listed are applicable worldwide.
This series of Yamaha Clavinova uses frequencies that appear in the radio frequency range, and if installed in the immediate
proximity of some types of audio or video devices within three meters {approximately ten feet), interference may occur.
This series of Yamaha Clavinova has been type-tested and found to comply with the specifications set for a class B computer
In accordance with those specifications listed in sub-part J, part 15 of the FCC rules. These rules are designed to provide
a reasonable measure of protection against such interference. However, this does not guarantee that interference will
not occur,
If your Clavinova should be suspected of causing interference with other electronic devices, verification can be made by
turning your Clavinova off and on. If the interference continues when your Clavinova is off, the Clavinova is not the source
of the interference. If your Clavinova does appear to be the source of the interference, you should try to correct the
situation by using one or more of the following measures:
® Relocate either the Clavinova or the electronic device that is being affected by the interference.
® Utilize power outlets for the Clavinova and the device being affected that are on different branch {circuit breaker or fuse)
circuits, or install a/c line filters.
e In the case of radio-TV interference, relocate the antenna or if the antenna lead-in is 300 ohm ribbon lead, change the
lead-in to coaxial type cable.
