Settings and Memory Contents
Settings
Tone, rhythm, and other “main keyboard settings” in effect
when power is turned off manually with the POWER button
or automatically by Auto Power Off remain in effect when
you next turn power back on.
Main Keyboard Settings
Main keyboard settings are: tone number, layer, split,
split point, touch response, rhythm number, tempo,
accompaniment volume, General MIDI mode on/off,
accomp MIDI OUT on/off, Sustain/Assignable jack
setting, keyboard channel, and Song Bank number.
Memory Contents
In addition to the above settings, data stored using the song
memory function is also retained.
Electrical Power
The settings and memory data described above are retained
as long as the keyboard is being supplied with electrical
power. Unplugging the AC adaptor when batteries are not
loaded or when loaded batteries are dead cuts off the
keyboard’s electrical power supply. This causes all settings to
be initialized to their factory defaults and clears all data
stored in memory.

Sustain/Assignable jack
Terminal
You can connect an optional sustain pedal (SP-2, SP-10 or
SP-20) to the SUSTAIN/ASSIGNABLE JACK terminal to
enable the capabilities described below.
For details on how to select the pedal function you want, see
“SUSTAIN/ASSIGNABLE JACK” on page E-55.
J Connecting Headphones (Figure 1)
Connecting headphones cuts off output from the keyboard’s
built-in speakers, so you can play even late at night without
disturbing anyone.
J Audio Equipment (Figure 2)
Connect the keyboard to an audio equipment using a
commercially available connecting cord with a standard plug
on one end and two PIN plugs on the other end. Note that the
standard plug you connect to the keyboard must be a stereo
plug, otherwise you will be able to output only one of stereo
channels. In this configuration, you normally set the input
selector of the audio equipment to the terminal (usually
marked AUX IN or something similar) where the cord from
the keyboard is connected. See the user documentation that
comes with your audio equipment for full details.
J Musical Instrument Amplifier (Figure 3)
Use a commercially available connecting cord to connect the
keyboard to a musical instrument amplifier.
Š Be sure to use a connecting cord that has a stereo
standard plug on the end you connect to the keyboard, and
a connector that provides dual channel (left and right) input
to the amplifier to which you are connecting. The wrong
type of connector at either end can cause one of the stereo
channels to be lost.

J Sustain Pedal
Š With piano tones, depressing the pedal causes notes to
linger, much like a piano’s damper pedal.
Š With organ tones, depressing the pedal causes notes to
continue to sound until the pedal is released.
J Sostenuto Pedal
Š As with the sustain pedal function described above,
depressing the sostenuto pedal causes notes to be
sustained.
Š This difference between a sostenuto pedal and sustain
pedal is the timing. With a sostenuto pedal, you press the
keys and then depress the pedal before you release the
keys. Only the notes that are sounding when the pedal is
depressed are sustained.
J Soft Pedal
Depressing the pedal softens the sound of the notes being
played.

Selecting a Tone
This keyboard comes with 137 built-in tones. Use the
following procedure to select the tone you want to use.
Š Always input all three digits for the tone number, including
leading zeros (if any). If you input one or two digits and
stop, the display will automatically clear your input after a
few seconds.
Š You can also increment the displayed tone number by
pressing [+] and decrement it by pressing [–].
Š When one of the drum sets is selected (tone numbers 128
through 136), each keyboard key is assigned a different
percussion sound. See page A-3 for details.

Polyphony
The term polyphony refers to the maximum number of notes
you can play at the same time. The keyboard has 24-note
polyphony, which includes the notes you play as well as the
rhythms and auto-accompaniment patterns that are played
by the keyboard. This means that when a rhythm or autoaccompaniment pattern is being played by the keyboard, the
641A-E-020A
Basic Operations
number of notes (polyphony) available for keyboard play is
reduced. Also note that some of the tones offer only 12-note
polyphony.
Š When rhythm or auto accompaniment is playing, the
number of sounds simultaneously played is reduced.
Digital Sampling
A number of the tones that are available with this keyboard
have been recorded and processed using a technique called
digital sampling. To ensure a high level of tonal quality,
samples are taken in the low, mid, and high ranges and then
combined to provide you with sounds that are amazingly
close to the originals. You may notice very slight differences
in volume or sound quality for some tones when you play
them at different positions on the keyboard. This is an
unavoidable result of multiple sampling, and it is not a sign
of malfunction.
Turning the Key Light System
On and Off
Using the Metronome
The metronome feature of this keyboard produces a bell
sound for the first beat of each measure, followed by click
sounds for each successive beat of the measure. It is the
perfect tool for practicing tunes without accompaniment
(rhythm).
To start the metronome
1.
2.
Press the METRONOME button to start
sounding the metronome.
Press the BEAT button and then use the
number buttons or [+] and [–] to change the
number of beats per measure.
Š You can specify the number of beats per measure
as a value from 1 to 6.
Use the following procedure when you want to turn the key
light system on or off.
To turn the key light system on and off
1.
Press the KEY LIGHT button to toggle the key
light system on and off.
Š The KEY LIGHT pointer disappears when the
key light system is turned off.
Š The bell (indicating the first beat of a measure) does not
sound while one beat per measure is specified. All beats
are indicated by a click sound. This setting lets you practice
with a steady beat, without worrying about how many beats
there are in each measure.
3.
Use the TEMPO buttons to set the tempo.
Š Press
to increase the tempo (make if faster) or
to decrease it (make it slower).
Š The key light system is turned on automatically whenever
you turn on keyboard power.

metronome is operating or activating the metronome while
either of the two above operations is already in progress
causes the metronome to sound in time with the Auto
Accompaniment played by the keyboard. At this time, the
tempo of the metronome beat changes to that of the default
tempo for the Auto Accompaniment being played.

Š The accompaniment keyboard can be used for playing
chords only. No sound will be produced if you try playing

Chord Types
CASIO CHORD accompaniment lets you play four types of
chords with minimal fingering.

Major chords
Major chord names are marked

FULL RANGE CHORD
This accompaniment method provides a total of 38 different
chord types: the 15 chord types available with FINGERED
plus 23 additional types. The keyboard interprets any input of
three or more keys that matches a FULL RANGE CHORD
pattern to be a chord. Any other input (that is not a FULL
RANGE CHORD pattern) is interpreted as melody play.
Because of this, there is no need for a separate
accompaniment keyboard, so the entire keyboard, from end
to end, can be used for both melody and chords.

Number of Types
Other Chords
Š Except for the chords specified in note*1 above, inverted
fingerings (i.e. playing E-G-C or G-C-E instead of C-E-G)
will produce the same chords as the standard fingering.
Š Except for the exception specified in note*2 above, all of the
keys that make up a chord must be pressed. Failure to
press even a single key will not play the desired
FINGERED chord.
Š When the key light system is turned on, the keys of the
accompaniment keyboard light to show the chord you
played. Though the chord is the same, the form of the
chord (the keys that light) may differ from the one you used
(the keys you pressed). If you play C Major using the
inverted chord form E-G-C, for example, the keys for C-EG will light.
Example:
To play the chord C major.
Any of the fingerings shown in the illustration below
will produce C major.
