STEP 2
The 3-step lesson feature takes you through the three distinct
steps described below to help you learn to play tunes on the
keyboard.
J Step 1 – Master the timing.
In this step, pressing any key on the keyboard plays the
correct note, so you can concentrate on getting the timing
right without worrying about playing the right note. The submelody (obbligato) waits until you press a key before
proceeding to the next phrase.
J Step 2 – Master the melody.
In this step, you use the display to learn which fingers you
should use and how loud or soft to play, and the key light
system to learn which keyboard keys to press. The submelody (obbligato) waits until your play the correct note, so
you can learn at your own pace.
LEFT/TRACK 1
STEP 3
tunes for a 3-step lesson, you can practice playing along with
the melody (right hand) part only.
J Two-hand Tunes (Numbers 70 through 99)
These types of tunes are played with both hands, as in a piano
solo. When using these tunes for a 3-step lesson, you can
practice playing along with both the left hand and right hand
parts.
Key Lighting System Operation and Display
Contents During 3-step Lesson Play
Whenever you select an Auto Accompaniment tune (00 to 69)
for 3-step lesson play, the key lighting system shows you
which keys to press, while the display shows you the notes
and their fingerings.
J Step 3 – Play at normal speed.
This is where you enjoy actually playing the tunes you learn
using Step 1 and Step 2. The key light system still shows you
which keyboard keys to press, but accompaniment proceeds
at normal speed regardless of whether or not you play the
correct notes.
J Note Pitch
The keyboard key that should be pressed lights, while the
actual pitch of the note appears in the display’s staff notation
area. The fingers you should use to play the notes are also
shown on the display.
J Note Length
Tune Types and Their Parts
There are two types of tunes in the Song Bank: Auto
Accompaniment tunes and two-hand accompaniment tunes.
The parts available for 3-step lesson practice depend on the
type of tune you are using.
J Auto Accompaniment Tunes (Numbers 00 through
69)
Keyboard keys stay lit for as long as the note should be
played. The staff notation and fingerings also remain on the
display for the length of the note.
J Next Note
The keyboard key for the next note to be played flashes, while
a number appears on the display near the finger you should
use to play the next note.
As their name suggests, these tunes are made up of an Auto
Accompaniment part and a melody part. When using these

Song Memory Button Operation
Each press of the SONG MEMORY button cycles through the
functions shown below.
Tracks
The song memory of this keyboard records and plays back
notes much like a standard tape recorder. There are two
tracks, each of which can be recorded separately. Besides
notes, each track can be assigned its own tone number.
During playback you can adjust the tempo to change the
speed of playback.
Selecting a Track
Press the LEFT/TRACK 1 button to select Track 1 and the
RIGHT/TRACK 2 button to select Track 2. The letter “L” (left)
appears on the display to indicate Track 1 is selected, and the
letter “R” (right) appears to indicate Track 2 is selected.
J Playback
Š Track 1 is the basic track, which can be used to record Auto
Accompaniment along with the melody. Track 2 can be
used for melody only, and is for adding to what is recorded
in Track 1.
Š Note that each track is independent of the other. This
means that if you make a mistake while recording, you
need to re-record only the track where the mistake was
made.

Memory Data Storage
Š Anything previously stored in memory is replaced
whenever you make a new recording.
Š Memory contents are retained as long as the keyboard is
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, causing all data stored in memory to be deleted.
Be sure to plug the keyboard into an electrical outlet with
the AC adaptor before replacing batteries.
Š Turning off the keyboard while a record operation is in
progress causes the contents of the track you are currently
recording to be lost.

Memory data can be thought of as a musical score that
progresses from left to right, with the input point normally at
the far right of the recorded data. The following procedure
describes how to move the input point to the left in order to
make changes in data you have already input. Note, however,
that moving the input point to the left and changing data
automatically deletes all of the data to the right of the input
point.
Š If you move from an area that contains note data
to an area that does not contain note data, each
press of FF moves the input point to the next beat.
Pressing the REW button, however, causes the
input point to jump back to the location of the
first note or rest to the left.

This section describes how to use layer (to play two tones
with a single key) and split (to assign different tones to either
end of the keyboard), and how to make touch response,
transpose, and tuning settings.

Select the layered tone.
Example:
To select “060 FRENCH HORN” as the layered
tone, use the number buttons or the [+] and [–]
buttons to input 0, 6 and then 0.
Using Layer
Layer lets you assign two different tones (a main tone and a
layered tone) to the keyboard, both of which play whenever
you press a key. For example, you could layer the FRENCH
HORN tone on the BRASS tone to produce a rich and brassy
sound.

Using Split
With split you can assign two different tones (a main tone and
a split tone) to either end of the keyboard, which lets you play
one tone with your left hand and another tone with your right
hand. For example, you could select STRINGS as the main
(high range) tone and PIZZICATO as the split (low range)
tone, putting an entire string ensemble at your fingertips.
Split also lets you specify the split point, which is the location
on the keyboard where the changeover between the two tones
occurs.
To split the keyboard

To select “048 STRINGS 1” as the main tone,
press the TONE button and then use the number
buttons or the [+] and [–] buttons to input 0, 4

Using Layer and Split Together
You can use layer and split together to created a layered split
keyboard. It makes no difference whether you layer tones first
and then split the keyboard, or split the keyboard and then
layer tones. When you use layer and split in combination, the
high range of the keyboard is assigned two tones (main tone
+ layered tone), and the low range two tones (split tone +
layered split tone).

Using Touch Response
When touch response is turned on, the relative volume of
sound output by the keyboard is varied in accordance with
the amount of pressure applied, just like an acoustic piano.
Transposing the Keyboard
Transpose lets you raise and lower the overall key of the
keyboard in semitone units. If you want to play an
accompaniment for a vocalist who sings in a key that’s
different from the keyboard, for example, simply use
transpose to change the key of the keyboard.
To turn touch response on and off
1.
Press the TOUCH RESPONSE button to toggle
touch response on and off.
Š Touch response is on when touch response
indicator is on.
To transpose the keyboard

2.
Press the TRANSPOSE/TUNE/MIDI button
until the transpose screen appears on the
display.
Use the [+], [–], and the number buttons to
change the transpose setting of the keyboard.
Example:

upwards.
Š Touch response is off when touch response
indicator is off.
Š You can adjust touch response sensitivity using the
procedure under “TOUCH CURVE (Default: 0)” on page
E-55.
Š Touch response not only affects the keyboard’s internal
sound source, it also is output as MIDI data.
Š Memory playback, accompaniment, and external MIDI note
data does not affect the touch response setting.
Š The keyboard can be transposed within a range of –12
(one octave downwards) to +12 (one octave upwards).
Š The default transpose setting is “00” when keyboard power
is turned on.
Š If you leave the transpose screen on the display for about
five seconds without doing anything, the screen is
automatically cleared.
Š The transpose setting also affects playback from song
memory and Auto Accompaniment.
TRANSPOSE/TUNE/MIDI Button
Each press of the TRANSPOSE/TUNE/MIDI button cycles
through a total of 12 setting screens: the transpose screen, the
tuning screen, and 10 MIDI setting screens (page E-52). If you
accidentally pass the screen you want to use, keep pressing
the TRANSPOSE/TUNE/MIDI button until the screen
appears again.
