Preface
„ About this Owner’s Manual
Before attempting to play this instrument, please read the Preparation Before Use section from page 10 of this owner’s manual.
This section explains the name and function of each part, how to connect the power cable, and how to turn on the power.
The Playing the Piano section (page 14) provides an overview of the instrument’s most commonly used functions, allowing the
CS6 digital piano to be enjoyed almost immediately after being connected, while the Music Menu section (page 24) includes
information regarding the built-in demonstration songs, Piano Music pieces, Lesson and Finger Exercise features, and Concert
Magic function.
The Recorder section (page 36) provides instructions on how to record and play back pieces stored both in the instrument’s
internal memory, and also MP3/WAV audio files saved to a USB memory device. The Settings section (page 46) details the various
options and settings that be used to adjust the sound and operation of the instrument.
Finally, the Appendix section (page 83) includes lists for all internal sounds, songs, and drum rhythms, assembly instructions, MIDI
reference information, and full specification details.
„ CS6 Feature Highlights
RM3 Grand wooden-key action with Ivory Touch key surface and ‘Let-Off’ mechanism
This CS6 digital piano utilises Kawai’s latest RM3 Grand wooden-key action, incorporating various grand piano action
characteristics, such as contrasting hammer weights - appropriately graded for each playing range - bass key counterbalancing, and correctly located pivot points for both black and white keys. This unique ‘seesaw’ movement provides
a consistent, evenly balanced action, while finely textured Ivory Touch key surfaces not only enhance the enjoyment of
playing, but also help to absorb moisture, thus preventing fingers from slipping.
In addition, the CS6 keyboard action is further equipped with a special ‘Let-Off’ feature, accurately recreating the subtle
‘click’ sensation felt when playing the keys of a grand piano very gently.
Ultra Progressive Harmonic Imaging (UPHI) with 88-key piano sampling
This CS6 digital piano captures the beautiful sound of Kawai’s highly acclaimed hand-built concert grand piano, with
all 88 keys of this exceptional instrument meticulously recorded, analysed and faithfully reproduced using proprietary
Ultra Progressive Harmonic Imaging™ technology. This unique process accurately recreates the broad dynamic range of
the original grand piano, affording pianists an extraordinary level of expressiveness ranging from the softest pianissimo
to the strongest, boldest fortissimo.
Additional modelling techniques and effects, such as string and damper resonance, and subtle key-release sounds, are
also applied, delivering a rich selection of vibrant piano tones with breathtaking realism and authenticity.
USB to Device functionality, with MP3/WAV file recording and playback.
The CS6 digital piano is equipped with USB connectors that not only allow the instrument to be connected to a computer
for MIDI use, but also to load and save data to USB memory devices directly. This ‘USB to Device’ feature allows songs
recorded and stored in internal memory to be saved to USB for posterity, or standard MIDI files (SMF) downloaded from
the internet to be conveniently played back without additional hardware.
USB memory devices can also be used to play back MP3 or WAV audio files, allowing musicians to learn the chords or
melody for a new piece, or to simply play along with their favourite songs. It is even possible to save performances as MP3
or WAV files for emailing to friends and family, listening to on an iPod, or for further editing using an audio workstation.

Using the Pedals
As with a grand piano, the CS6 digital piano features
three pedals: sustain, sostenuto, and soft.
Soft pedal
Sostenuto pedal
„ Sustain pedal (right pedal)
„ Sostenuto pedal (centre pedal)
Depressing this pedal sustains the sound after one’s hands
have been lifted from the keyboard - greatly enriching the
piano sound, while also assisting smooth ‘legato’ passages.
Depressing this pedal after playing the keyboard and before
releasing the keys, sustains the sound of only those notes that
have been played. Any keys that are subsequently played after
the sostenuto pedal is depressed will not be sustained.
The sustain pedal is capable of responding to half pedaling.
Playing the Piano
Sustain pedal
„ Soft pedal (left pedal)
Depressing this pedal softens the sound, reducing its volume.
When the rotary speaker effect is selected, the soft pedal is also
used to alternate the speed of the rotary simulation between
'Slow' and 'Fast' effect modes.
„ Pedal support bolt
If the pedal support bolt does not make contact with the floor,
the pedal board may become damaged. Ensure that this bolt
is fully extended and supports the pedals firmly.
When moving the instrument, always adjust or
remove the pedal support bolt, then readjust
when the instrument is in its new position.
„ Caring for the pedals
If the surface of the pedals becomes dirty, clean the pedals using a dry dish-washing sponge.
Do not attempt to clean the pedals using rust-removing solvents, abrasives or files.

3 Concert Magic song arrangement types
Concert Magic songs are divided into three different arrangement types, each requiring a different level of
skill to be performed correctly.
„ Easy Beat
These are the easiest songs to play. To perform them, simply tap out a constant steady beat on any key on the keyboard.
Look at the following example for ‘Für Elise’. The Note Navigator indicates that a constant, steady rhythm should be maintained
throughout the song. This is the distinguishing characteristic of an Easy Beat song.
Fur Elise

„ Melody Play
These songs are also relatively easy to play, especially if they are familiar to the player. To perform them, tap out the rhythm of the
melody on any key of the keyboard. Singing along as the rhythm is tapped can be helpful.
Play ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star’, for example. Follow the melody’s rhythm as shown below.

When performing fast Concert Magic songs, it is sometimes easier to tap two different keys with two alternating fingers in order
to play at a greater speed.
34
„ Skillful
These songs range in difficulty from moderately difficult to difficult. To perform them, tap out the rhythm of both the melody and
the accompaniment notes on any key of the keyboard. The Note Navigator will be very helpful with the Skillful type songs.
The song ‘Waltz of the Flowers’ is shown below.

It may take a little practice to perform the Concert Magic songs proficiently. A good way to learn is to listen to these pieces first,
and then try to tap out the rhythms that are heard.
Music Menu
* The ‘Internal Song Lists’ booklet indicates the arrangement type next to each song title as ‘EB’ for Easy Beat, ‘MP’ for Melody Play and ‘SK’ for Skillful.
4 Steady Beat mode
Steady Beat mode allows all Concert Magic songs to be played by simply tapping any key with a constant
steady beat, regardless of the song arrangement type.
„ Selecting Steady Beat mode
While Concert Magic mode is selected:
Press the FUNCTION button.
The current Concert Magic mode (NORMAL) will be shown on
the second line of the LCD display.

1 Touch
As with an acoustic piano, the CS6 digital piano produces a louder sound when the keys are struck with force,
and a softer sound when the keys are played gently. The volume and tonal character change in relation to
the strength and speed of playing - on a digital piano this system is referred to as ‘touch sensitivity’.
The Touch setting allows the touch sensitivity of the keyboard to be conveniently adjusted. There are six
different preset touch curve settings available, with two additional ‘User’ settings allowing performers to
customise the instrument’s responsiveness to suit their playing style.
„ Touch type

3 Damper Resonance
Depressing the sustain pedal of an acoustic piano raises all dampers, allowing the strings to vibrate freely.
When a note or chord is played on the piano with the sustain pedal depressed, not only will the strings of the
notes played vibrate, but also the strings of other notes, vibrating in sympathetic resonance.
The CS6 digital piano recreates this phenomenon, with the Damper Resonance setting allowing the volume
of this resonance to be adjusted.

5 Key-off Effect
When playing an acoustic piano - particularly in the bass region of the keyboard - if a key is played with
force and released quickly, it is often possible to hear the faint sound of the damper touching the strings
immediately before the vibrations are stopped.

* If any other type of sound is selected, the tuning will be set to equal temperament (flat).
This temperament, which eliminates dissonances for thirds and fifths, is still popular in choral music
because of its perfect harmony. Any key modulation will result in dissonances.
* The key of the temperament, and major/minor setting must be correctly matched.
This temperament, which uses mathematical ratios to eliminate dissonance for fifths, is very limited for
use with chords, but produces very characteristic melodic lines.
This temperament, which uses a mean between a major and minor whole tone to eliminate dissonance
for thirds, was devised to eliminate the lack of consonances experienced with certain fifths for the
Mersenne pure temperament.
It produces chords that are more beautiful than those played with equal temperament.
These two temperaments are placed in between Meantone and Pythagorean. For music with few
accidentals, this temperament produces the beautiful chords of the mean tone, but as accidentals
increase, the temperament produces the characteristic melodies of the Pythagorean temperament.
It is used primarily for classical music written in the Baroque era to revive the original characteristics.
This is an ‘unstretched’ equal temperament that divides the scale into twelve equal semi-tones. It produces
the same chordal intervals in all twelve keys, and has the advantage of limitless modulation of the key.
However the tonality of each key becomes less characteristic and no chord is in pure consonance.
This is the most popular piano temperament. The hearing ability of a human is uneven and is not as
accurate with high frequency and low frequency as it is with the middle range. This temperament’s
tuning is stretched to compensate for this so the sound will be heard naturally to the ears. This ‘stretched’
equal temperament is a practical variation of the ‘unstretched’ equal temperament which was invented
on a mathematical basis.
A custom, user temperament, created by raising or lowering the pitch for each semi-tone.

The sound distorts when playing at
very loud volume levels.
Strange sounds or noises are heard
when playing with piano sounds.
The CS6 digital piano attempts to reproduce the rich variety of tones
created by an acoustic grand piano as accurately as possible. This
includes string resonances and damper noises, and other subtle
characteristics that contribute to the overall piano playing experience.

ƒ Before connecting the CS6 digital piano to other devices, ensure that the power to both the instrument
Appendix
and the other device is turned off. If connections are established while the power is turned on, extraneous
noise that can damage the CS6 digital piano may activate the instrument’s amplifier protection circuit,
preventing any sound from being produced. If this occurs, turn the power off and then on again to reset
the amplifier protection circuit.
ƒ Do not connect the LINE IN and LINE OUT jacks of the CS6 digital piano together with a cable. An audio
loop (oscillation sound) will occur, resulting in damage to the unit.

section
„ LINE IN jacks (1/4” phone jack)
„ LINE IN STEREO jack (1/8” mini jack)
These jacks are used to connect a pair of stereo outputs
from other electronic instruments or audio equipment to
the instrument’s speakers. The audio signal from these jacks
bypasses the MASTER VOLUME control, however the the LINE
IN level can be adjusted using the adjustment knob, or by
adjusting the output level of the connected device. To connect
a device in mono, connect the cable to the L/MONO jack only.
This jack is used to connect the stereo output from an external
audio device, such as a CD or MP3 player, to the instrument’s
speakers. The LINE IN adjustment knob cannot be used to
adjust the LINE IN level, therefore please use the volume
controls on device itself.
„ LINE OUT jacks (1/4” phone jack)
„ PHONES jacks (1/4” phone jack)
These jacks provide stereo output of the instrument’s sound
to external speakers, amplifiers, mixers, recording devices, and
similar equipment. The audio signal from the LINE IN jacks is
also routed to these jacks. The MASTER VOLUME slider can be
used to control the output level of the instrument’s own sound
without affecting the level of the LINE IN signal. Mono signals
will be output only if a cable is connected to the L/MONO jack.
These jacks are used to connect stereo headphones to the CS6
digital piano. Two pairs of headphones can be connected and
used simultaneously. When a pair of headphones is connected,
sound will not be produced by the speakers.
„ USB to Host port (‘B’ type)
„ USB to Device port (‘A’ type)
This USB port is used to connect the CS6 digital piano to a
computer using an inexpensive USB cable. When connected,
the instrument can be used as a standard MIDI device,
allowing it to send a receive MIDI data. Connect a ‘B’ type USB
connector to the instrument, and an ‘A’ type USB connector to
the computer.
This USB port is used to connect a USB memory device to the
CS6 digital piano. This allows MP3/WAV audio files, and SMF
song files to be played directly. It is also possible to record
performances to MP3/WAV audio files, and save recorder
songs stored in internal memory for posterity.
„ MIDI IN/OUT/THRU jacks
These jacks are used to connect the CS6 digital piano to
external MIDI devices, and also to a computer with a MIDI
interface as an alternative to the ‘USB to Host’ port.
ƒ The ‘USB to Device’ functionality of the CS6 digital piano
ƒ
conforms to USB2.0 Hi-Speed standards. Older USB devices
can still be used, however data transfer speed will be limited
to the maximum transfer speed of the device.
It may be necessary to format the USB memory device
before it can be used with the CS6 digital piano. If so,
please refer to the ‘Format’ function instructions on page
