PIANO TOUCH FUNCTION KEY
TOUCH - The digital piano offers four types of keyboard Touch Sensitivity
settings. These are known as velocity or dynamic curves and are
designed to suit your style of playing.
REVERB/
EFFECT
NORMAL is the standard setting which produces volume in direct
proportion to the force on the keys. This setting is the most similar to
an acoustic piano and is the default setting.
LIGHT produces a louder sound even when the piano is played with a
soft touch.
HEAVY produces a softer sound even when the piano is played with a
heavy touch. It is perfect for those with strong fingers or for practicing
with a hard touch.
FIXED is a nonsensitive keyboard. It is used for instrument voices such
as organ or harpsichord, and for playing some contemporary music.

FUNCTION PIANO KEY CONTROLS
MIDI - MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface. This is a world wide standard communication
interface that enables musical instruments of all brands and computers to communicate so that
instructions and other data can pass between them. This exchange of information makes it possible to
create a “system” of MIDI instruments and equipment that offer greater musical versatility and control
than what would be available with just isolated instruments. Whether you interface with computers,
sequencers, expanders or other keyboards you musical horizons will be greatly enhanced. For further
information on MIDI and MIDI equipment that is available please contact your local Suzuki music store.
MIDI TERMINALS - The MIDI terminals are located on the board connector panel
underneath the piano.
MIDI
IN
OUT

1.
The MIDI In connector receives MIDI data from an external MIDI device
which can then be used to control the piano.
2.
The MIDI Out connector transmits MIDI data generated by the piano, the
note and velocity data produced by playing the piano.
BASIC MIDI SETUPS
SUZUKI PIANO
1.
Output to an external sound generator - MIDI keyboards transmit note
and velocity, or touch response, information via the MIDI Out connector.
If the MIDI Out terminal of the keyboard is connected to the MIDI In
terminal of a tone generator (tone generators usually offer 128 different
voices), piano sound module or another external device, it will respond
precisely to the notes played on the original transmitting keyboard, in this
case your Suzuki piano.
2.
Piano to Piano - By connecting this Suzuki piano to another keyboard in
the same matter as described above you will essentially be playing two
instruments at once. This provides a thick, layered multi-instrument
sound.
3.
Output from an external MIDI device - Connect the MIDI In terminal of
the piano and the MIDI Out terminal of an external device. Data generated on the other device is passed through the piano’s sound delivery
system.
4.
Connect with a Computer - Although the Suzuki offers a built in recorder,
the same type of musical information transfer that is described above
can be used for more sophisticated MIDI sequence recording using an
external sequencer or computer. These devices can be used to record
MIDI data received from the piano. You can transmit your performance to
a computer to utilize the advanced recording, composing and editing
available from computer software. MIDI music stored on the computer
can be played back through your instrument.
