Playing back the
Demonstration Music
First, try listening to the Demonstration
Music.
To hear this music, do the following:
1 . Switch on
to the ON
Slide the POWER switch
position. The power-on light will then
illuminate.
2. Adjust the volume
Slide the MASTER VOLUME control
about three-quarters of the way towards

demonstration piece.
Starting to play
Orchestra section
First, try the sounds in the Orchestra
section, which is a fundamental part of
this keyboard.
1. Choose an instrument voice
First set the Orchestra Bank selector
for the desired bank of voices (Orchestra
Bank selector in upper position to select
upper row of voices labeled in silver
above the voice selectors, lower position
to select lower row of voices labeled in
yellow.) Then press the Orchestra Voice
selector
for the desired voice in the
selected bank.
l When you turn the keyboard ON, the
BRASS 1 voice will automatically
be selected if the Orchestra Bank
selector
is set to the upper position,
and the BRASS 2 voice will be selected
if the Orchestra Bank selector is set
to the lower position.
4
Notes:
1. Vibrato is automatically applied to voices which
benefit from application of this effect.
2. Be sure to set the Auto Bass Chord MODE
selector
to the OFF position. When the
selector is set to the SINGLE FINGER or
FINGERED position. the keys in the Auto Bass
Chord key section
cannot be used for melody
playing.
2. Try other voices
Make your selection from among the
voices in the ORCHESTRA section
Note:
The maximum number of notes that can be played
simultaneously (normally twelve) will be reduced
when the Auto Bass Chord, Duet and Digital
Synthesizer are used. The minimum number of
simultaneous notes is two.
3. Adding sustain
Slide the SUSTAIN selector
to its “1”
or “2” setting, and notes will be sustained after you lift your fingers from the
keys. SUSTAIN 1 produces a short
sustain, SUSTAIN 2 produces a longer
sustain.
Pitch control
The PITCH control function
enables
you to fine-tune the keyboard for when
you want to play in an ensemble. Each
time
is pressed, the pitch increases
very slightly, up to a maximum of 50
cents above the preset level. Whenever
is pressed, the pitch drops slightly,
also to a maximum of 50 cents.
Notes:
1. If you hold down one of the PITCH controls, the
pitch will change continuously.
2. If you press both of the PITCH controls together,
the pitch will return to the preset level (A3=
440Hz).

Voice Editing
DIGITAL SYNTHESIZER
As one of the PSR-36’s special features,
the Digital Synthesizer function allows
you to expand the 32 orchestra voices
to total of 100,000 different voices.
Let’s create various voices using
DIGITAL SYNTHESIZER.
1. Select the desired voice by pressing
one of the 32 Orchestra Voice
selectors
2. Set the Digital Synthesizer selector
to ON.
3. Adjust the volume using the Master
Volume control
4. Set each Voice Data controller
(SPECTRUM, BRILLIANCE,
ENVELOPE, VIBRATO and DETUNE)
to the position which results in
the desired sound.
SPECTRUM
This controls the timbre or tone color
of the voice.
BRILLIANCE
This determines how brilliant or mellow
the voice is.
ENVELOPE
Controls the attack of the notes (whether
the notes begin sharply or smoothly).
VIBRATO
This controls the vibrato effect.
6
DETUNE
Increasing the DETUNE setting produces
a “thicker” multi-instrument type sound.
5. Now, let’s play some notes. By
comparing the same voice in both the
ON and OFF settings of the Digital
Synthesizer Selector
you can
distinguish the difference in timbre.
l
The degree to which a voice changes varies
with the selected voice.
Using the built-in
drummer
PCM/Stereo rhythm section
Now it’s time to add a dynamic rhythm
accompaniment to your melody.

Taking care of your
PortaTone
Your PortaTone will remain in excellent
playing condition if care is taken concerning the following.
1. When you use AC power, be sure to
use the optional AC Power PA-4/
PA-40 adaptor. Before use, read the
adaptor instructions carefully. In
particular, please note that in some
cases the PA-4/PA-40 is provided
with a voltage selector, so confirm
that this selector is correctly set.
2. The optional car battery adaptor
CA-1 is only for use with a negative
around 12V battery. Ensure that this
is the case before connecting the
adaptor.
3. Connections made between the
PortaTone and any other device
should be made with both units
turned off.
4. Do not set the MASTER VOLUME
at MAX when you connect the
PortaTone to a stereo system. Use
the stereo system’s volume control
to adjust the sound level.
5. Avoid placing the instrument in
excessively humid areas.
6. Do not subject the unit to physical
shock, and avoid placing anything
heavy on it.
7. The PortaTone should not be placed
in direct sunlight for a long time.
8. Do not place the instrument near
any heating appliance, or leave it
inside a car in direct sunlight for
any length of time. Direct sunshine
can raise the interior temperature of
a car with closed doors and windows
to as high as 80°C. Temperatures
in excess of 60°C can cause physical
and/or electrical damage not covered
by warranty.
9. Use a dry or damp cloth for cleaning.
10. When you aren’t using the PortaTone, we recommend keeping it in
the case to protect it.

FCC INFORMATION
Attention users in the U.S.A.
PortaTone PSR-36 prepared In accordance
with FCC rules.
The PortaTone PSR-36 uses frequencies that appear in the
radio frequency range, and it installed in the immediate
proximity (within three meters) of some types of audio or
video devices interference may occur.
The PortaTone PSR-36 has been type tested and tested
to comply with the specifications set for a Class B
computing device in accordance with those specifications
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 PortaTone PSR-36
should be suspected of causing interference with other
electronic devices, verification can be made by tuning your
PortaTone PSR-36 off and on. If the interference continues
when your PortaTone PSR-36 is off, PortaTone PSR-36 is not
the source of the interference. If your PortaTone PSR-36
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 PortaTone PSR-36 or the electronic
device that is being affected by the interference.
Utilize power outlets for the PortaTone PSR-36 and the
device being affected that are on different branch ( circuit
breaker of fuse) circuits, or install A/C line filters
In the case of radio TV interference, relocate the
antenna or, if the antenna lead-in is a 300 ohm ribbon lead,
change the lead-in to a co-axial type cable.
If these corrective measures do not produce satisfactory
results, please contact your Authorized Yamaha dealer for
suggestions and/or corrective measures. If you cannot
locate an Authorized Yamaha dealer in your general area.
