( FCC INFORMATION ÓN
While the following statements are provided to comply outlets for the professional! music equipment and the
with FCC Regulations in the United States, the cor- device being affected that are on different branch
rective measures listed below are applicable world- (circuit breaker or fuse) circuits, or install AC line —
wide.
This series of Yamaha professional music equipment
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), interference may occur. This series of Yamaha
combo equipment have been type tested and found
to comply with the specifications set for a class B
computing device in accordance with those specifi-
cations listed in subpart J of 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 professional music equipment
should be suspected of causing interference with other
electronic devices, verification can be made by turning
your combo equipment off and on. If the interference
continues when your equipment is off, the equipment
is not the source of interference. !f your equipment
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 equipment or the electronic device
\_ that is being affected by the interference. Utilize power
filters.
In the case of radio or TV interference, relocate the
antenna or, ¡f the antenna lead-in is 300 ohm ribbon
lead, change the lead-in to co-axial type cable.
If these corrective measures do not produce satisfac-
tory results, please contact your authorized Yamaha
professional products dealer for suggestions and/or
corrective measures.
If you cannot locate a franchised Yamaha professional
products dealer in your general area contact the pro-
fessional products Service Department, Yamaha Music
Corporation, 6600 Orangethorpe Ave., Buena Park,
CA 90620, U.S.A.
If for any reason, you should need additional infor-
mation relating to radio or TV interference, you may
find a booklet prepared by the Federal Communi-
cations Commission helpful:
“How to Identify and Resolve Radio — TV interference
Problems”. This booklet is available from the U.S.

PRECAUTIONS
Cj
Your new RX120is a fine musical instrument - and should be treated as such. Though it is ruggedly constructed and offers the reliability
of solid-state circuitry, handle it with care and common sense. Keep the following points in mind, and your RX120 will give you
years of reliable service.
e Location
Avoid exposure to direct sunlight or other sources of heat.
Vibration, excessive dust, cold, low or high humidity can also
cause malfunction.
e Relocation
When moving the RX120, unplug the AC adapter and all other
connecting cables to prevent damage to cords and jacks.
e Handling
Avoid rough handling. Don't drop the RX120 as this can
damage the internal circuitry. Applying excessive force to
@kerminais or controls may lead to malfunctions. Always re-
move plugs from jacks or other terminals by gripping them
directly, not by pulling the cord.
e AC Power Connection
Connect only to a power supply conforming to the specifi-
cations shown on the AC adapter.
Disconnect the RX120 from the AC outlet when not using
it for an extended period of time. Electrical storms (lightning)
can give rise to power surges, damaging digital circuitry even
if power is turned off.
e Cleaning
Clean the exterior with a soft, dry cloth. Using chemical
solvents wiil damage the finish.
e Interference Through Electromagnetic Fields
Do not use your RX120 close to television sets, radio receivers
or other equipment generating electromagnetic fields. This
could cause both malfunctions of the RX120 digital circuitry
as well as interference noise in the other appliance.
e Service and Modifications
The RX120 contains no user serviceable parts. Opening it
or tampering with it in any way can lead to electrical shock
as well as damage and will void the product warranty. Refer
all servicing to qualified YAMAHA personnel.

PATTERN MODE
A
The RX120 has 40 basic rhythm patterns (ROCK | …
BALLAD), and 8 variations (3 pattern variations, 2 fills, 1
break, | intro, 1 ending) for each — a total of 320 patterns.
(Actually, the Break variations are the same for some pat-
terns.)
In Pattern mode you can select and individually play the
rhythm patterns and their variations. Each time you press
the PATTERN/SONG switch, you will alternate between
Pattern mode and Song mode. (The LCD will briefly show
“PATTERN” or “SONG”, and a red LED will indicate the
mode.)
SELECT PATTERNS
Press the pattern switches to select from the 40 patterns;
ROCK 1, ROCK 2, ROCK 3 ... BALLAD. When you select
a new pattern (or variation) while playing in the middle of
a measure, the display will change immediately, but the new
pattern will begin playing from the next measure. (The black
triangle in the LCD indicates that the new pattern has not
yet started.) Pattern selected (but not playing yet)

OTHER FUNCTIONS
A
INIT TEMPO / BD SD CHANGE
These three switches control two different functions, alter-
nating each time you press the switch. While holding the INIT
TEMPO/BD SD CHANGE switch, use the NO/YES switches
to select the alternatives.
YES
init Tempo ON Init Tempo OFF
Natural BD & SD Process BD & SD
m
Init Tempo: Each pattern has its own initial tempo that is
automatitally used when you play the pattern. By
switching Init Tempo OFF, you can disable this, so that
newly selected patterns (and songs) will not change the
tempo.
BD & SD: For the top two rows of pattern switches (ROCK
1 to SHUFFLE 3), you may select a natural-sounding
Bass and Snare, or a more electronic-sounding,
“processed” Bass and Snare.
COWBELL, CLAPS
At any time, you may press COWBELL or CLAPS to play
the respective sounds.
TAP TEMPO
At any time while playing in Pattern mode or Song mode,
you may set the tempo by pressing the TAP TEMPO switch
on the second beat of the tempo you want. For a four-beat
rhythm, you would count “one, two, three, four” and press
TAP TEMPO on “two”. The tempo range is 40—250 beats
per minute,
You may find this function useful when setting the
RX120 to follow a live performance.
Tap Tempo can be set while the RX 120 is stopped. When
you press TAP TEMPO, the LEDs will begin blinking to
indicate tempo (there will be no sound). This will continue
until you press STOP/CONTINUE. Now press TAP TEMPO
on the second beat as explained above.
LOAD DEMO SONG
When the RX 120 is shipped, its song memories (1-20) contain
factory-programmed songs. You may write your own songs
into memory to replace these, but if you want to restore the
original factory-programmed data, turn the RX120 on while
pressing PATTERN VARIATION 2. You will be asked
“Load demo SONG ?”. If you wish to do so, press YES. If
you are sure you want to erase your own songs and load the
factory-programmed songs, press YES again.
ERROR MESSAGES
If the RX120 encounters an unexpected condition, it will issue
one of the following error messages.
! Memory Full! : Too many measures have been used in songs.
(Each song can use up to 500 measures, but the RX120
can remember a total of between about 900 and 3800
measures. Using a different pattern for each measure
uses more memory.)
! Buffer Full! : Too much data has been received too rapidly
at the MIDI IN terminal. Press PATTERN/SONG to
return to normal operation.
! Change Battery ! : The memory backup battery inside the
RX120 has dropped to less than 2.2V, and needs to be
changed. Please contact your Yamaha dealer. Press Y ES
to return to normal operation.
! No Battery ! : The memory backup battery inside the RX 120
has dropped to less than 1.5V, and needs to be changed.
Please contact your Yamaha dealer immediately. Press
YES to return to normal operation.
MIDI FUNCTIONS
ро
The MIDI IN terminal on the rear panel of the RX120 can
be connected to the MIDI OUT terminal of other devices
such as MIDI keyboards and MIDI sequencers.
MIDI NOTE RECEPTION
The 38 percussive instruments in the RX120 can be played
from a MIDI keyboard connected to the RX120 MIDI IN.
If your keyboard is velocity sensitive the sounds in the RX 120
will be louder as you play harder. The RX120 instruments
are arranged across the keyboard as follows;

MIDI RECEIVE CHANNEL
The RX 120 will normally receive the above Note On messages
on any MIDI channel (i.e., Omni mode). If you need to restrict
Note On reception to a specific channel, turn the power on
while pressing a Song Select switch (1—16). The LCD will
show the selected channel as “Receive CH: 16”.
You would use this function if you were independently
controlling the RX120 and other MIDI devices over the same
cable (using THRU connections).
Refer to the owner’s manual for information on how to set
its Transmission channel.
MIDI SYNCHRONIZATION
Normally, the RX120 keeps time using its own internal clock. “A
However if you want to synchronize the RX120 to an external
sequencer or rhythm machine connected to the rear panel
MIDI IN terminal, you can set the RX120 to MIDI Sync
by turning the power on while holding PATTERN VARI-
ATION 1. The LCD will briefly show “MIDI sync”. In this
mode, the TEMPO slider and TEMPO — 1/+ 1 keys will have
no effect, and the LCD will show “EXT” in the space where
the tempo (40—250) would normally be displayed.
In MIDI Sync mode, the RX120 receives Start, Stop,
Continue, Timing Clock, Song Position Pointer and Song
Select messages. (Song Select messages 0—19 select RX120
song memories 1-20.) Song Select and Song Position Pointer
are received only in “MIDI Sync” in “Song Mode”. If there
are no Timing Clock messages coming in to the RX120 MIDI
IN, it will not play.
In MIDI Sync mode, the RX120 will not accept Note
On messages to play its percussive sounds.
_. Note:
Most rhythm patterns are one measure long. However,
some of the rhythm patterns (all patterns of the third row
of buttons; Reggae, Samba, etc.) are two measures long.
The RX120 synchronizes by pattern, not measure. This
means that when the RX 120 is synchronized to an external
sequencer or rhythm machine, some of these two-measure
patterns will play twice as fast as normal.
