will erase all the songs currently stored in the Recorder. (See page 16.)
It is recommended to turn the CA-X on before turning on any amplifiers
in order to avoid switching noise.
1.3 VOLUME SLIDER
This slider controls the master volume level of the piano’s sound.
Move this slider to the right to increase the volume and move to
the left to decrease the volume.
This slider also controls the headphone’s volume and the LINE output
level of the piano’s sound.
1.4 DEMO SONGS
The CA-X has 26 built-in sound demo songs. Each of the demo songs
presents a musical piece to introduce the different preset sounds.
Press the DEMO button and the demo song for the Piano 1 category
will start. After the Piano 1 demo songs are finished playing, the demo
songs for another sound category will be selected at random.

The VOLUME SLIDER controls the volume level of the piano. Use this
slider to set the volume to a comfortable listening level.
QUICK START
5
Quick Start
Now try playing the keyboard.
You will hear the CA’s main piano sound.
The CA piano responds just like a real acoustic piano when you play it. It
produces a louder sound when you play hard and a softer sound when
you play soft. The volume level changes in relation to how fast the keys
are pressed. This system is called “touch sensitivity” on an electronic
musical instrument. The initial touch sensitivity setting has been adjusted
to the standard of an acoustic piano. You can however, select a different
type of touch sensitivity on the CA piano if you are not comfortable with
the standard setting. For more detail, please read “5.1 Selecting the
Touch Sensitivity (TOUCH Button)” on page 22.
1.6 PLAYING WITH MORE SOUNDS
You have already heard the CA’s main piano sound. The CA-X has a total
of 40 sounds, not only different types of piano sounds but different
instruments as well.
The different instrument sounds built into CA piano are called “preset
sounds”.
All of the preset sounds have been created through advanced digital
sampling technology achieving as natural and realistic sound as possible.
Let’s try some of the preset sounds.
SELECTING ANOTHER PRESET SOUND
Press the SOUND SELECT button under the name of the
instrument you would like to listen to. When the button is pressed,
the LED indicator will be turned on to indicate that this sound is selected.
The SOUND SELECT buttons are assigned with four preset sounds to
select. To select the other sounds, press the button repeatedly.
Sound variation
number 1
When a SOUND SELECT button is pressed, the variation number is briefly
shown in the display. Pressing the same SOUND SELECT button again
will select the next variation sound assigned to the SOUND SELECT
button.
You can also select any preset sounds by using the VALUE buttons.

KAWAI DIGITAL PIANO CA-X
2. ADVANCED PLAYING
2.1 VALUE BUTTONS
These two buttons are used to change the value for certain functions.
These buttons can also be used to select the various sounds. You can
select all of the preset sounds assigned to the ten SOUND SELECT buttons.
However, Sounds cannot be selected by using the VALUE buttons when
you are in DUAL or SPLIT mode.
2.2 DUAL
Another feature of the CA piano is the ability to layer two preset sounds
together to create a more complex sound. For example, piano layered
with strings, electric piano with choir sound, and so on.
Sound variation
number 1 and 4
are layered.
To layer two sounds, select the first sound and then, while holding
down that SOUND SELECT button, select the second sound by
pressing another SOUND SELECT button. The LED indicators for
each will be turned on to indicate the two sounds you have chosen. The
display briefly shows the combination of the selected sound variation
numbers.
If you want to layer two sounds assigned to the same SOUND SELECT
button, while pressing the desired SOUND SELECT button use the VALUE
buttons to select your desired layered sound.
ABOUT POLYPHONY
The CA piano is capable of playing up to 96 notes simultaneously (96note polyphony). When playing in dual mode, or when playing the stereo
piano sound, the polyphony will be reduced by half since the piano has to
produce two sounds for each note.
ADVANCED PLAYING
7
Advanced Playing
First select the function or option you would like to change the
value for by pressing the appropriate button(s), then use the
VALUE buttons to change the value. “ ” button increases the
value and “ ” decreases the value.
2.3 SPLIT
SELECTING SPLIT SOUNDS
Advanced Playing
The split function divides the keyboard into two sections—upper and
lower—and lets you play each part with a different sound.
Variation 2 for
lower and 1 for
upper.
First press the desired SOUND SELECT button to select the upper
sound. Then, while holding down the SPLIT button, press the
desired SOUND SELECT button to select the lower sound. The
LED indicator for the upper sound will be turned on and the LED for the
lower sound will start flashing. The display shows the combination of
the selected sound variation numbers during the SPLIT button is pressed.
The number on the left is for lower sound and the number on the right is
for upper sound.
CHANGING THE SPLIT POINT
The default split point is set between B2 and C3. This point can be moved
to anywhere on the keyboard.
Press the desired key on the keyboard while holding down the
SPLIT button.
The key you pressed becomes the lowermost note for the upper section.
2.4 DUAL/SPLIT BALANCE SLIDER
You can adjust the volume balance between the two sounds in Dual or
Split mode. Use the Dual/Split Balance slider to adjust the balance.
Move the slider to the right to increase the volume of the rightmost sound
(in dual mode) or upper sound (in split mode) and decrease the volume
of the leftmost sound (in dual mode) or lower sound (in split mode). The
balance changes in the opposite way when the slider is moved to the left.
2.5 EFFECTS/REVERB
You might have noticed that when you select some of the preset sounds,
the LED indicator for the EFFECTS or the REVERB is turned on. The
reason for this is some of the preset sounds are set up with an effect on as
their initial setting.
Adding an effect to the sound enhances tonal quality and improves
acoustical realism. The CA piano is provided with two separate groups
of effects. The first is reverb and the second contains chorus, delay,
tremolo and rotary speaker.
8
KAWAI DIGITAL PIANO CA-X
REVERB
Reverb adds reverberation to the sound, simulating the acoustic
environment of a recital room, stage, or concert hall. There are five types
of reverb available. They are Room 1&2, Stage, and Hall 1&2. (listed in
order of reverberation amount).
DELAY
Delay is an effect that adds echoes to the sound. There are three types of
delay available (delay 1 - 3), each of which has a different length of delay
between the echoes.
TREMOLO
This is a vibrato type effect.
ROTARY
This effect simulates the sound of the Rotary Speaker cabinet commonly
used with electronic organs. Rotary 1 is normal rotary and Rotary 2 is
with distortion effect.
The soft pedal is used to change the speed of the rotor between SLOW
and FAST.
TO ADD REVERB
Press the REVERB button. The LED indicator will be turned on to
indicate that reverb is in use. Press and hold the REVERB button and the
currently selected reverb type will be shown in the display.

2.6 METRONOME
Rhythm is one of the most important elements when learning music. It is
important to practice playing the piano at the correct tempo and with a
steady rhythm. The CA piano’s metronome is a tool that helps you to
achieve this by providing a steady beat for you play along with.
STARTING THE METRONOME
Press the TEMPO button. You will see the LED indicator turn on and
hear the metronome begin counting with a steady beat. The display shows
the tempo in beats per minute.
To change the tempo, use the VALUE buttons to increase or
decrease the tempo within the range of 30 - 300 beats per minute.
(60-600 BPM with eighth note rhythms).
To stop the metronome, press the TEMPO button again.
CHANGING THE TIME SIGNATURE
You probably noticed that there are two types of clicks and the louder
one comes every fourth beat. The metronome is capable of giving you a
down beat to indicate the beginning of the measure. You are now hearing
a 4-beat or 4/4 time signature.
10
KAWAI DIGITAL PIANO CA-X
You can select a different time signature, if you want to. There are seven
different time signatures available on the CA piano—1/4, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 5/4,
3/8 and 6/8.
Use the VALUE buttons to select your desired time signature. You
will see the time signature currently selected in the display.
To stop the metronome, press the BEAT button again.
You can use either the TEMPO or BEAT button to turn the metronome on
and off. Choose the appropriate button depending on whether you’re
adjusting the tempo or changing the time signature.
ADJUSTING THE METRONOME VOLUME
The volume level of metronome can be adjusted to any level you like
independent of the main volume.
Press the TEMPO and BEAT buttons simultaneously. The display
shows the volume level of the metronome in numbers from 1 (soft) to 10
(loud). The factory preset is 5.
Use the VALUE buttons to change value.

3. RECORDER
The CA piano’s recorder records your playing much like a tape recorder,
and it is just as easy to use. The CA piano records a song as digital data
instead of audio data and stores the song inside the instrument. Because
the song is stored as digital information you can modify the song when
you play it back. You can, for example, adjust the tempo without changing
the pitch or use a different effect setting from one you have recorded.
Once you understand the recorder, you will find it to be a useful tool for
both practicing and playing the piano.
BASICS OF THE RECORDER
Recorder
Let’s take a brief look at the recorders features.
TWO-TRACK FIVE-SONG RECORDER
The CA piano’s recorder is a 2-track 5-song recorder. This means you
can record up to five different songs, store them in memory, and play
them back as you like.
Each song has two separate tracks called “Parts” that can be recorded
separately. This lets you record for example, the left hand part first on
one track, then record the right hand part next on the other track while
listening to the first track.
When you record or play back a song, you can select which part (track)
of which song you are going to record or play back. When you are
recording, selecting the same part again to record will erase any previous
recordings on that part. Because of this it’s important to remember; when
recording both parts separately, after recording the first part be sure to
select the second part to record, otherwise you will end up recording
over the first part of the song.
RECORDED INFORMATION
The CA piano records the following:
Note information
Sound selection
Pedal movements
Balance settings Set the dual/split balance as desired before you
start recording. Balance settings made before
you start recording will be used by the recorder.
Any changes made during the recording will be
ignored by the recorder.
Transpose . . . . . . When you record in a different key using the
transpose function, the CA piano will record the
actual transposed notes you hear, not the notes
as you play with the keyboard.

KAWAI DIGITAL PIANO CA-X
RECORDING CAPACITY
The total recording capacity is about 15,000 notes. Pressing any buttons
or pedals is counted as one note.
When the recorder reaches it’s maximum capacity, the CA piano will stop
recording at that point.
RECORDER AND METRONOME
When playing back a song with the metronome turned on, the metronome
always restarts with the down beat.
3.1 RECORDING (REC BUTTON)
Press the REC button when you are ready to record. The LED
indicator will start flashing telling you that the piano is ready to record.
Now play some music on the piano. The recorder will automatically
start recording with the first note you play.
Press the PLAY/STOP button when you are finished recording. The
piano will stop recording and save your song to memory.
Saving to memory may take a few moments and during this time the piano
will not perform any other operations.
You can start recording by pressing the PLAY/STOP button instead of
pressing a key. In this way, you can insert a blank bar at the beginning of
the song.
If you make a mistake, you can record your piece again. Just repeat the
same procedure. The second recording will completely erase the first
one.
RECORDING ANOTHER SONG
The CA piano is capable of recording and storing up to five different songs.

4. PLAYING WITH CONCERT MAGIC
The great German composer Johann Sebastian Bach once said, “Playing
the keyboard is simple. Just strike the right keys at the right time.”
Many people wish it were that simple. The reality is very different of
course. However, there is a way to make playing the keyboard very simple.
You don’t even have to strike the right keys thanks to Concert Magic.
With CONCERT MAGIC, absolutely anyone can sit at the CA piano and
make real music… even if you’ve never taken a piano lesson in your life.
To enjoy performing by yourself, you have only to select your favorite
piece from 88 preprogrammed songs and tap any of the 88 piano keys
with a steady rhythm and tempo. CONCERT MAGIC will provide the
correct melody and accompaniment notes, regardless of which keys you
press. Anybody, young or old, can enjoy CONCERT MAGIC from the
moment they sit down at the CA piano.
Now let’s see how CONCERT MAGIC works.
The 88 Concert Magic songs are assigned to each of the 88 piano keys,
classified in eight groups by song category such as Children’s Songs,
American Classics, Christmas Songs.
All of the song titles are listed on page 43 in the appendices section of this
manual.
To select a song, press the key to which your desired song is assigned
while holding down the CONCERT MAGIC button. The display briefly
shows the song number.
4.2 LISTENING TO THE SONG
If you have selected a song you are familiar with, you may want to play by
yourself right away. However you may want to listen to the song first
before playing it.
To listen, press the PLAY/STOP button. The CA piano will start playing
back the selected song. You can adjust the speed or tempo of the song by
using the VALUE buttons while holding down the TEMPO button. While
you are listening you can select a different Concert Magic song by using
the VALUE buttons.
When you are finished listening to the song, press the PLAY/STOP
button again to stop.

Concert Magic
4.1 SELECTING A SONG
4.3 PERFORMING A SONG
Now you’re ready to play yourself.
Tap out the rhythm of the selected song on any one of the 88 black
or white keys on the piano’s keyboard.
Playing with
Concert Magic
As you tap harder, the notes will get louder; as you tap softer, the notes
will get quieter. As you tap faster, the notes speed up; as you tap slower,
they will slow down correspondingly, just like regular piano playing.
Isn’t it fun? You can sound like you’ve been playing for years just by
pressing one key with one finger.
Concert Magic is a perfect method for small children to learn music,
especially to develop a sense of rhythm. For older people who may think
it is too late to learn the keyboard, Concert Magic is a good first step for
them to begin with. With Concert Magic, your CA piano can be enjoyed
by anyone in the family, even those who have never touched a musical
instrument in their life.
4.4 PART VOLUME BALANCE FOR CONCERT MAGIC
When used with Concert Magic, the balance slider adjusts the volume
balance of the melody part and the accompaniment.
As the slider is moved to the right, the sound of the melody becomes
louder and the accompaniment becomes softer. The balance changes in
the opposite way when the slider is moved to the left.
4.5 CONCERT MAGIC SONG ARRANGEMENT TYPES
After playing for a while with Concert Magic you may think that it’s too
easy and there is very little to learn.
While it is true that some of the songs are very easy to play, even for
beginners, there are also some which will challenge you and require
practice to play beautifully. Each of the 88 Concert Magic songs falls into
one of three different arrangement types depending on the skill level
required to perform them.
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, “Für Elise”. Press the key with a steady
sixteenth note rhythm.

perform them, tap out the rhythm of both the melody and the
accompaniment notes on any key on the keyboard, like “Waltz of the
Flowers” shown below.

Use the VALUE buttons to raise or lower the pitch.
2. TEMPERAMENT
The CA piano offers not only equal temperament (the modern standard)
but also immediate access to temperaments popular during the
Renaissance and Baroque periods. It should be interesting and educational
to try some of the different temperaments, although the equal temperament
is dominant today.
Press the PIANO 2 button while holding down the TOUCH and the
TRANSPOSE buttons.
The display alternatively shows “tMP” (= Temperament) and the symbol
that indicates which type of temperament is in use.

EQUAL TEMPERAMENT (PIANO ONLY)
This is the default temperament. If a piano sound is selected the tuning is
stretched like an acoustic piano (EQUAL TEMPERAMENT). If any other
type of sound is selected the tuning will be EQUAL (FLAT). An explantion
of EQUAL TEMPERAMENT and EQUAL TEMPERAMENT (FLAT) is
provided later in this section.
◆ NOTE
If a piano sound is used in a layer with any other sound then both sounds
will use the EQUAL TEMPERAMENT (Stretched) tuning.
MERSENNE PURE TEMPERAMENT (MAJOR)
MERSENNE PURE TEMPERAMENT (MINOR)
This temperament, which eliminates dissonance’s for thirds and fifths is
still popular for choral music because of its perfect harmony.
You need to be aware what key you are playing in with this temperament.
Any key modulation will result in dissonance’s. When you play music in a
particular key, you need to match the key of the temperament as well.
When playing in a major key select Pure (Major) and when playing in a
minor key select Pure (minor).
FUNCTION BUTTONS
25
Function Buttons
BRIEF EXPLANATION OF TEMPERAMENTS
PYTHAGOREAN TEMPERAMENT
This temperament, which uses mathematical ratios to eliminate
dissonance for fifths, is very limited for use with chords, but it produces
very characteristic melodic lines.
MEANTONE TEMPERAMENT
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 consonance’s experienced with certain fifths for the Mersenne pure
temperament. It produces chords that are more beautiful than those with
the equal temperament.
WERCKMEISTER III TEMPERAMENT
KIRNBERGER III 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.
Function Buttons
EQUAL TEMPERAMENT (FLAT)
This is “unstretched” equal temperament that divides the scale into twelve
equal semitones. This 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.
EQUAL TEMPERAMENT
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.
◆ NOTE
26
After you have selected the desired temperament, please read the following
section on selecting a key signature for the temperament before
continuing.
KAWAI DIGITAL PIANO CA-X
KEY SIGNATURE OF TEMPERAMENT
Limitless modulation of the key became available only after the invention
of Equal temperament. When we use a temperament other than Equal
temperament, we must carefully choose the key signature to play in.
For example, if the song you are going to play is written in D major, choose
“D” as the temperament key.
Key in D
Key in A#
◆ NOTE
To select the key signature of the temperament, simply press one
of the 88 piano keys. The note name of the key you pressed will be
shown in the display and it will be chosen as the key of the
temperament.
Changing the key of the temperament will only change the “balance” of
the tuning, the pitch of the keyboard remains unchanged. Use the TUNING
or TRANSPOSE functions to change the pitch of the whole keyboard.

In Dual mode sometimes simply adjusting the volume balance between
the two layered sounds is not enough to create the desired sound character
if both sounds are very dynamic. Two equally dynamic sounds can be
difficult to control and play comfortably. The Layer Dynamics function
allows you to limit the overall dynamic sensitivity of the layered sound to
create a perfect blend between both sounds in a layer. In addition to
reducing the volume of the layered sound, limiting the dynamic sensitivity
of the layered sound also makes the layered sound easier to control in
relation to the main sound as you play. With this function, you can
comfortably play as dynamically as you like with the main sound while
maintaining control of the layered sound.
Press the REVERB button while holding down the TOUCH and the
TRANSPOSE buttons.
The display alternatively shows “dyn” (= Dynamics) and a number which
represents the level of dynamics.
Use the VALUE buttons to set the desired layer dynamics range.
13. DAMPER HOLD
This determines if the sound such as organ or strings should be held (on)
or gradually decayed (off) when the damper pedal is depressed.
Press the SPLIT button while holding down the TOUCH and the
TRANSPOSE buttons.
The display alternatively shows “dMP” (= Damper) and on/off status. The
default is off.
Use the VALUE buttons to toggle on and off.
FUNCTION BUTTONS

You can select the level of dynamics from 1 to 10. A value of 1 produces
the greatest reduction in dynamics and a value of 10 produces no change
in the dynamics. The default value is 10.
6. USING MIDI
In this chapter you will learn how you can create music by connecting
the CA piano to an external MIDI device.
The CA piano is compatible with MIDI devices from Kawai and other
manufacturers. It can also be used with sequencing software on a personal
computer.
UNDERSTANDING MIDI
WHAT IS MIDI?
The letters MIDI stand for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, an
international standard for connecting MIDI equipped synthesizers, drum
machines, and other electronic instruments so that they can exchange
data. Personal computers can also be equipped for MIDI communication.
Electronic instruments equipped with MIDI can transmit and receive
performance data such as, notes, what sound to play, pedal information,
volume, etc. This data can be recorded with a device like a sequencer or
a computer.
MIDI JACKS
Instruments equipped with MIDI usually have three jacks for exchanging
data: IN, OUT, and THRU. (Some instruments have only IN and OUT.)
These jacks are used to connect MIDI devices to one another using a
special cable.
Using MIDI
Each terminal has a different function.
IN
: For receiving MIDI data from another MIDI instrument.
OUT
: For sending MIDI data to another MIDI instrument.
THRU : For passing along MIDI data received to another MIDI
instrument without processing.
Depending on how they are connected, instruments are grouped as those
which receive data (producing sound when data is received from a
connected instrument), those which send data (to instruments to which
they are connected), and those which both send and receive data.
MIDI CHANNEL
MIDI uses what are known as “channels” as a means of routing MIDI
data intended to play a specified instrument or specified part. By
channelizing MIDI data, you can control multiple parts in multiple
instruments with a single cable.
32
KAWAI DIGITAL PIANO CA-X
There are two aspects of channels, one for receiving and one for sending.
The MIDI channel of the receiving instrument must be matched with the
MIDI channel of the transmitting instrument. The idea is just like television
or radio. If you have a desired station to watch or listen to, you need to
tune in to the right channel. When a transmitting instrument uses channel
1, the receiving instrument must be set to use channel 1 also. The CA
piano lets you set the same channel number for both Transmit and receive.
There are 16 MIDI channels available to choose from on the CA piano.
In addition to channel-to-channel connection, it is possible to receive
multiple channels. With MIDI instruments equipped with multi-timbral
capabilities, you can receive multiple parts on multiple channels each
played with a different sound simultaneously. For example, a MIDI
instrument might receive the melody on channel 1, the chords on 2, the
bass on 3, and assign a different instrument to each channel. Piano for
channel 1, strings for 2, electric bass for 3. In this way, the CA piano can
play up to 16 different parts each with a different sound.
Here’s a diagram to summarize the MIDI connections we have discussed.
Instrument #1, which is transmitting the piano part on channel 1 (Ch 1),
the string part on Ch 2 and the bass part on Ch 3, is connected to Instrument
#2. Instrument #3 is connected to MIDI Thru on instrument #2. The receive
channel is set to 1 for Instrument #2 and multi-timbral mode is turned off.
On instrument #3 multi-timbral mode is on.

Instrument #2 recognizes only the piano part received from Instrument
#1. Instrument #3 receives all the parts on the three channels being passed
through Instrument #2 because Instrument #3’s multi-timbral mode
capability is activated.
We have provided this brief look at MIDI to help you understand the CA
piano’s MIDI capabilities.
While it is beyond the scope of this manual to explain the entire world of
MIDI we do encourage you to visit your local music store or contact a
music publisher for a listing of available books on MIDI applications to
learn more.
Let’s explore some MIDI applications using an external MIDI device
connected to the CA piano.
6.1 USING THE CA PIANO AS CONTROLLER
First let’s play sounds from an external MIDI device using the CA piano’s
keyboard.
Using MIDI
MIDI CONNECTION
First, connect the CA piano’s MIDI OUT jack to your external MIDI
device’s MIDI IN jack with a MIDI cable.
Next you must match the MIDI channel. The transmitting channel of the
CA piano and receiving channel of your external MIDI device must be the
same.
CHANGING TRANSMITTING CHANNEL
To change the transmit channel on the CA piano, press the ELECTRIC
PIANO button while holding down the TOUCH and the TRANSPOSE
buttons. The display alternatively shows “Chn” (= Channel) and the
channel number. The default channel is 1. Use the VALUE buttons to
change the channel number.
34
KAWAI DIGITAL PIANO CA-X
PROGRAM CHANGE
Press a SOUND SELECT button on the CA. You will hear the sound on
your external MIDI device also changes. Pressing a SOUND SELECT
button lets the CA piano transmit a “program change” number. A program
change is the type of MIDI command that tells the receiving instrument
what sound or instrument to play your notes with.
Actual program change information is just a number, from 1 to 128, not an
instrument name. You select the desired instrument with a specific number.
Not all MIDI instruments assign the same sound to the same program change
number. MIDI instruments that conform to the General MIDI (GM) standard
however “DO” assign the same sound to the same program change number.
For example program change #1 will always be an acoustic piano sound on
a “GM” compatible synth, and program change #33 will always be an acoustic
bass sound. Because of this, when connecting two “GM” instruments
together, selecting the right sound is not a problem. The CA piano is not a
General MIDI instrument and its internal sounds do not conform to the
General MIDI standard. This means when you select a sound on the CA
piano such as Classic E. Piano you will probably hear a different sound
playing from your external MIDI device. What sound you hear will depend
on the sound assignments on your external MIDI device. Below is a chart
of the Program Change number/sound assignment mapping for the first
twelve CA piano sounds and the first twelve “GM” sounds. Please see page
44 for more detail. The CA piano can have different mappings depending
on the setting for multi-timbral mode (explained later in this chapter).

In order for your external MIDI device to play the sound you want, you
need to know what program change number to transmit to it. Please read
your external MIDI device’s manual for a list of its program change number/
sound assignments. Then read “Sending Program Change Numbers” on
page 29 for the procedure to send a desired program change number from
the CA piano.
USING MIDI
35
That is how to layer the CA piano’s sound with a desired sound from an
external MIDI device.
LOCAL CONTROL
You may want to play and only hear your external MIDI device’s sound,
without the CA piano’s sound. You can turn off the CA piano’s sound
using a function called “local control”.
Local control determines whether or not the CA piano will produce a
sound when you play it’s own keyboard. When local control is on, the CA
piano produces sound as you play the keys. When off, the piano will not
produce a sound when you play the keys. The CA piano’s keyboard will
however, continue to transmit MIDI information to an external MIDI
device.
Press the CHURCH ORGAN button while holding down the TOUCH
and the TRANSPOSE buttons, and the piano will show “on” or “off” in
the display. The initial value is on. Toggle on and off using the VALUE
buttons.
Using MIDI
Play the keyboard and you will hear only the sound from your external
MIDI device.
To change the sound from the CA piano, select the desired number as
explained on page 29 and send it from the CA piano to your external MIDI
device.
It may be possible to change preset sounds directly on your external MIDI
device. In this case you may want to set the CA piano so that it does not
transmit program changes. Read “4. Transmit Program Change On/Off”
on page 27 to learn how to prevent the CA piano from transmitting program
changes.
6.2 USING THE CA PIANO AS A MULTI-TIMBRAL SOUND MODULE
The CA piano can also be used as a 16-part multi-timbral sound module.
Your CA piano is capable of playing back for example, a four part song
with two piano parts, a string part, and a choir part all sent from an external
MIDI sequencer or a personal computer. You can also play the CA piano
along with a recorded song.
To set the CA piano to receive MIDI as a multi-timbral instrument it must
be connected with an external MIDI device or personal computer with
appropriate software.
36
KAWAI DIGITAL PIANO CA-X
Connect the CA piano’s MIDI IN jack and your external MIDI device’s
MIDI OUT jack with a MIDI cable. Please note that the MIDI information
is now being transmitted the opposite of our earlier setup. The CA piano
is now receiving MIDI data from your external MIDI device.
MIDI CHANNEL
The next step is to match your MIDI channels. When receiving MIDI data
on the CA piano with multi-timbral mode ON, it is not necessary to specify
a MIDI channel to use because the CA piano can receive data on multiple
MIDI channels at once. You do have to be careful to match MIDI channels
between each part. A MIDI channel can only have one sound assigned to
it at a time. You must set the MIDI channel for each part on both the
transmitting (external MIDI device) and the receiving (CA piano) MIDI
devices. For example, channel 1 for piano, ch 2 for strings, ch 3 for choir,
etc.
MULTI-TIMBRAL MODE
Multi-timbral Off turns off the multi-timbral capability. If you would
like to have the CA piano receive MIDI data on a single channel and ignore
all data on the other channels set multi-timbral to “Off”. Remember, if
you want the CA piano to receive MIDI information from an external
device, in this setup you must match the receiving channel with the
transmitting channel. Program change numbers are recognized as listed
on page 42.
To demonstrate the multi-timbral capability of the CA piano, let’s choose
Multi-timbral On.
Press the HARPSI&MALLETS button while holding down the
TOUCH and the TRANSPOSE buttons.
USING MIDI
37
Using MIDI
Multi-timbral On is a setup for 16-channel multi-timbral operation. You
can mute the channels separately. Each channel recognizes the program
change numbers as listed on page 42. There are two kinds of Multi-timbral
On. On1 and On2 have different program change numbers assigned.
Use the VALUE buttons to select Multi-timbral On. The display
will read “On1” or “On2”.
Let’s see how this works using an external MIDI device. If you have a
keyboard connected to the CA piano try playing some notes. You should
hear the CA piano as you play. If you have a MIDI song player or personal
computer with MIDI software connected try sending some MIDI song data
with one or more different musical parts to the CA. Again you should
hear the CA piano playing all the parts. In multi-timbral mode, if you
want to hear a particular sound for each part you transmit to the CA you
must send the correct Program/sound number from the transmitting MIDI
device to the CA piano. Please see page 42 for a list of the Program/
sound number assignments for the CA piano.
If you own a “GM” sound module you’ll probably want to use it as your
multi-timbral module instead of the CA piano. If you have a hardware
sequencer or personal computer but do not own another sound module,
you can enjoy sixteen-part multi-timbral capability with only the CA piano.
MIDI may seem a little difficult to work with at first, but once mastered it
offers many new and exciting ways to enjoy music.
Using MIDI
While this manual avoids going into too much detail regarding the technical
aspects of MIDI such as “system exclusive data”, for those who are more
familiar with MIDI or want to be, this manual provides technical MIDI
information and a MIDI Implementation Chart, on page 46 and 47.

NOTES ABOUT USB
The CA piano can be connected with a personal computer with a USB cable for exchanging MIDI data. You
need a USB driver installed in your computer.
[For Windows XP/Me users]
A standard USB driver is already installed in your computer. You don’t need to install a new driver.
[For Windows 2000/98SE users]
You need to install the designated driver in your computer. Visit the KAWAI web site at http://www.kawai.co.jp/
english/Download1.html and download the program.
[For Macintosh users]
Currently we don’t have a USB driver available for Macintosh computers. Please use an appropriate MIDI
interface and MIDI cables when connecting the CA piano to a Macintosh computer.
NOTE:
When both MIDI jacks and USB jack are connected, USB has priority.
When connecting USB cable to the CA piano, first connect the USB cable and then turn the power of the CA
piano on.
It may take some time to startcommunication when the CA piano is connected to the computer via USB.
When USB communication is unstable with connection via hub, connect the USB cable directly to the USB
port of the computer.
Turning the power of CA piano on/off or disconnecting the USB cable while the following actions may cause
unstable communication.
