Important
Read the Following Warnings and Cautions Before
Operating the GranTouch Digital Grand Piano
Warnings
• Do not locate the GranTouch in a place subject to excessive heat, low temperatures, or
direct sunlight. This could be a fire hazard and may damage the finish and internal
parts.
• Do not place the GranTouch in a place subject to excessive humidity or dust. This could
be a fire and electrical shock hazard.
• Connect the plug on the GranTouch power cable to a compatible AC outlet. Failure to
do so is a fire and electrical shock hazard. If the power cable plug is not compatible
with your AC outlet, consult your dealer.
• Do not plug several devices into the same AC outlet. This can overload the AC outlet,
and can be a fire and electrical shock hazard. It may also affect the performance of
some devices.
• Do not place heavy objects on the power cable. A damaged power cable is a potential
fire and electrical shock hazard. If the power cable is hidden under a carpet, make sure
heavy objects, including the GranTouch, are not placed on top of the cable.
• If the power cable is damaged (i.e. cut or a bare wire is exposed), ask your dealer for a
replacement. Using the GranTouch in this condition is a fire and shock hazard.
• Hold the plug when disconnecting the power cable from an AC outlet. Never pull the
cable. Damaging the cable in this way is a potential fire and electrical shock hazard.
• Do not place liquid containers such as vases, potted plants, glasses, cosmetic bottles,
medicines, etc., on top of the GranTouch. This is a potential fire and electrical shock
hazard.
• Do not block the ventilation holes in the GranTouch. The GranTouch has ventilation
holes underneath to prevent the internal temperature from rising. Blocked ventilation
holes are a fire hazard.
• Do not try to modify the GranTouch. This could be a fire and electrical shock hazard.
• When moving the GranTouch to another location, turn off the power, remove the
power plug from the AC outlet, and remove all cables connected to external devices.
Damaging cables in this way is a potential fire and electrical shock hazard.
• Be careful not to pinch your fingers when you close the keyboard cover. Use both
hands to open and close the keyboard cover. Keep the keyboard cover closed when you
are not using the GranTouch.
GranTouch—Owner’s Manual
Cautions
• Turn off all audio devices and speakers when connecting to the GranTouch. Refer to the
user’s guide for each device. Use the correct cables and connect as specified.
• Set the volume level on all the devices to minimum before turning on. Extremely loud
noises can damage your hearing.
• Do not play the GranTouch at a high volume level for a long time of period; you may
damage your hearing. This is especially important when using headphones. If you
think your hearing ability is impaired or your ears are ringing, consult an ear doctor.
• If you notice any abnormality—such as smoke, odor, or noise—turn off the GranTouch immediately. Remove the power plug from the AC outlet. Confirm that the
abnormality is no longer present. Consult your dealer for repair. Using the GranTouch
in this condition is a fire and shock hazard.
• If a foreign object or water gets inside the GranTouch, turn off the GranTouch immediately. Remove the power plug from the AC outlet. Consult your dealer for repair. Using
the GranTouch in this condition is a fire and electrical shock hazard.
• If you plan not to use the GranTouch for a long period of time (such as when you are
on vacation), remove the power plug from the AC outlet. Leaving the GranTouch connected is a fire hazard.
• Remove the power plug from the AC outlet before cleaning the GranTouch. Leaving the
power plug connected is an electrical shock hazard.
• Do not use benzene, thinner, cleaning detergent, or a chemical cloth to clean the
GranTouch.
• Do not place metal objects or objects with rubber feet on top of the GranTouch. The
color and finish of the GranTouch can be damaged.
• Do not place heavy objects, or climb and sit on the GranTouch. Doing so can damage
the GranTouch.
• Do not drag the GranTouch. Doing so can damage the GranTouch legs and the floor.
When moving, always lift the GranTouch carefully.
• Use only a soft, dry cloth to clean the GranTouch. If you discover a stain, carefully use a

Welcome to the GranTouch
Thank you for choosing a Yamaha GranTouch™—the digital piano with a “grand” touch
and sound. The rest of this page talks about the GranTouch’s unique features.
Real Grand Piano Keyboard and Action
GranTouch is the first digital piano to feature a real grand piano keyboard and action, so it
feels and responds just like a real grand piano. Newly developed continuous optical key sensors mean that the GranTouch captures every subtle nuance of your playing. Even staccato
and legato playing is reproduced faithfully.
Real Grand Piano Sound
The superb piano sound is provided by a massive 30-megabyte memory, which contains
the digitally sampled, stereo sound of a classic Yamaha CFIIIS concert grand piano. Even
the effect of the sustain pedal has been captured, providing the rich harmonic resonance of
a true grand. A 60-watt stereo power amplifier and three-way speaker system reproduce the
sound in all its richness and glory. While high-quality reverb programs simulate the acoustic
ambiance of three different playing environments: Room, Hall 1, and Hall 2.
Play Anytime, Anywhere
A continuous volume control allows you to play at any volume, depending on your situation. For private practice without disturbing others, headphones can be used. Two pairs of
headphones can be connected so another person can listen to your playing or play along in
a duet. AUX and MIDI connections expand your creative options for using the GranTouch
with other electronic musical instruments, computers, and MIDI sequencers.

Playing Other MIDI Instruments (MIDI OUT)
MIDI is an acronym for Musical Instrument Digital Interface. It allows electronic musical
instruments to communicate with each other. MIDI cables do not carry sound, they carry
digital instructions. These instructions tell instruments which notes to play, when to play
them, and at what volume. If you want to know more, check out the MIDI books at your
local music dealers or bookstore.
The MIDI OUT connector allows you to play other electronic musical instruments from
the GranTouch keyboard, or record your playing to a MIDI sequencer. The GranTouch transmits MIDI information on MIDI Channel 1. So you’ll need to set the receiving device to
MIDI Channel 1. The following illustration shows how to make the connections.

Sequencing (MIDI IN)
The MIDI IN connector allows you to play the GranTouch digital piano from another keyboard, or playback a performance you have recorded on a MIDI sequencer. The GranTouch
receives MIDI information on MIDI Channel 1. So you’ll need to set the transmitting device
to MIDI Channel 1. The following illustration shows how to make the connections.

MIDI Note
The GranTouch transmits and receives note on and off, note velocity on and off, and key
aftertouch information. Pedal information is carried via MIDI Controller messages.
Note: This function enables the GranTouch to transmit and receive the position of the
keys as independent additional information, instead of continuously transmitting “key
aftertouch” data based on key pressure applied after the keys are played.

Troubleshooting
If you’re having difficulty operating the GranTouch, or it doesn’t seem to work as expected,
look up the symptoms in the following table and follow the advice provided.
Symptom
Cannot power up the
GranTouch (the power
indicator is not lit).
A click sound can be heard
when the GranTouch is
powered up and down.
The GranTouch does not
produce any sound.
A rattling sound can be
heard while playing the
GranTouch.
Advice
Make sure the power cable is connected to an appropriate AC wall outlet.
Make sure the power cable is connected to the
GranTouch AC inlet correctly.
Make sure that the POWER switch on the Control Box
is set to the ON position.
This is normal.
Make sure that the VOLUME control is turned up (i.e.
not set to minimum).
If a pair of headphones are connected to one of the
HEADPHONE sockets on the Control Box, the piano
sound is not heard through the GranTouch speakers.
Disconnect the headphones.
This may be just the sound of the keys.
Make sure that the Pedal Adjuster is set correctly (GT1
and GT2 only).
Cannot hear the reverb
effect.
Make sure that the REVERB control is turned up (i.e.
not set to minimum).
The piano sound has too
much reverb and echo.
Turn down the REVERB control.
The pitch of the GranTouch
does not match other
instruments.
To correct this, set the GranTouch PITCH switch to
match the pitch of the other instrument.
If you cannot match the pitch of another instrument
using the PITCH switch (i.e. the other instrument is
out of the GranTouch’s adjustable range), adjust the
pitch of the other instrument.
With another music source
connected to the AUX IN
connectors, the piano sound
is too loud or too quiet.
You need to balance the volume levels of your
GranTouch and music source. Use the volume controls
on the GranTouch and music source to achieve this.
The GranTouch cannot send
and receive MIDI data with
other MIDI instruments.
A Demo song suddenly starts
playing.
Make sure the MIDI cables are connected correctly.
The GranTouch sends and receives MIDI data on MIDI
Channel 1. Make sure the other MIDI device is set to
use MIDI Channel 1.
The GranTouch is still in Demo Song mode. See
page 10 for details on how to cancel this mode.

Notes
*1 This function enables the GranTouch to transmit and
receive the position of the keys as independent additional
information, instead of continuously transmitting “key
aftertouch” data based on key pressure applied after the
keys are played.
