Taking Care of Your PortaTone
○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
Your PortaTone will give you years of playing pleasure if you follow the simple rules given below:
■ Location
Do not expose the instrument to the following
conditions to avoid deformation, discoloration, or
more serious damage.
● Direct sunlight (e.g. near a window).
● High temperatures (e.g. near a heat source, outside, or in a car during the daytime).
● Excessive humidity.
● Excessive dust.
● Strong vibration.
■ Power Supply
● Turn the power switch OFF when the instrument
is not in use.
● An AC adaptor, if used (the PSR-320/420 runs
from either batteries or an optional AC adaptor),
should be unplugged from the AC outlet if the
instrument is not to be used for an extended period of time.
● Unplug the AC adaptor during electric storms.
● Avoid plugging the AC adaptor into the same AC
outlet as appliances with high power consumption, such as electric heaters or ovens. Also avoid
using multi-plug adaptors since these can result
in reduced sound quality, operation errors, and
possibly damage.
■ Turn Power OFF When Making
Connections
● To avoid damage to the instrument and other
devices to which it is connected, turn the power
switches of all related devices OFF prior to connecting or disconnecting MIDI cables.
■ Handling and Transport
● Disconnect all cables before moving the instrument.
● Physical shocks caused by dropping, bumping,
or placing heavy objects on the instrument can
result in scratches and more serious damage.
■ Cleaning
● Clean the cabinet and panel with a dry soft cloth.
● A slightly damp cloth may be used to remove
stubborn grime and dirt.
● Never use cleaners such as alcohol or thinner.
● Avoid placing vinyl objects on top of the instrument (vinyl can stick to and discolor the surface).
■ Electrical Interference
● This instrument contains digital circuitry and
may cause interference if placed too close to
radio or television receivers. If this occurs, move
the instrument further away from the affected
equipment.
■ Data Backup
● Internal data (registration memory and song
data) will be retained in memory even if the
power switch is turned OFF as long as an AC
power adaptor is connected or batteries are installed.
■ Service and Modification
● The PSR-320/420 contains no user serviceable
parts. Opening it or tampering with it in anyway
can lead to irreparable damage and possibly
electric shock. Refer all servicing to qualified
YAMAHA personnel.
● Never apply excessive force to the controls, connectors or other parts of the instrument.
● Always unplug cables by gripping the plug
firmly, not by pulling on the cable.
YAMAHA is not responsible for damage caused by improper handling or operation.

Setting Up
This section contains information about setting up your PSR-320/
420 and preparing to play. Be sure to go through this section
carefully before using your PSR-320/420.
Power Supply
Your PSR-320/420 will run either from batteries or an optional power adaptor. Follow the instructions below according to the power source you intend to
use.
■ Using An Optional AC Power Adaptor .............................................................
Plug the DC output cable from an optional Yamaha PA-5, PA-5B, or PA5C AC Power Adaptor into the DC IN jack on the rear panel of the PSR320/420, then plug the Power Adaptor (or the AC cable of the Power Adaptor) into a convenient wall AC power socket. The internal batteries are automatically disconnected when an AC Power Adaptor is used.
DC IN 10-12V
PA-5,
PA-5B,
or
PA-5C
• Never interrupt the power
supply (e.g. remove the batteries or unplug the AC adaptor)
during any PSR-320/420 record
operation! Doing so can result
in a loss of data.
• Use ONLY a Yamaha PA-5, PA5B, or PA-5C AC Power Adaptor to power your instrument
from the AC mains. The use of
other adaptors may result in
irreparable damage to both the
adaptor and the PSR-320/420.
AC power socket
■ Using Batteries ...............................................................................................................................................
For battery operation the PSR-320/420 requires six 1.5V SUM-1, “D”
size, R-20 or equivalent batteries.
When the batteries need to be replaced “Btry Low” will appear on the
display. Also the volume may be reduced, the sound may be distorted, and
other problems may occur. When this happens, turn the power off and either
replace the batteries or connect an AC adaptor.
Replace the batteries as follows:
Z Open the battery compartment cover located on the instrument’s bottom
panel.
• When the batteries run down,
replace them with a complete
set of six new batteries.
NEVER mix old and new batteries.
• Do not use different kinds of
batteries (e.g. alkaline and
manganese) at the same time.
• To prevent possible damage
due to battery leakage, remove
the batteries from the instrument if it is not to be used for
an extended period of time.
X Insert the six new batteries, being careful to follow the polarity markings
on the inside of the compartment.
C Replace the compartment cover, making sure that it locks firmly in place.

Setting Up
Connections
■ The PHONES Jack ...................................................................................................................................
A standard pair of stereo headphones can be plugged in here for private
practice or late-night playing. The internal stereo speaker system is automatically shut off when a pair of headphones is plugged into the PHONES
jack.
• The PHONES jack can also be
used to deliver the output of the
PSR-320/420 to a keyboard
amplifier, stereo sound system,
mixing console or tape recorder.
PHONES
■ SUSTAIN Jack ...................................................................................................................................................
An optional Yamaha FC4 or FC5 footswitch can be plugged into the rearpanel SUSTAIN jack for sustain control. The footswitch functions like the
damper pedal on a piano — press for sustain, release for normal sound.
• Be sure that you do not press the
pedal while turning the power on.
If you do, the ON/OFF status of
the footswitch will be reversed.
SUSTAIN
■ MIDI IN and OUT Connectors .............................................................................................
The MIDI IN connector receives MIDI data from an external MIDI device (such as a MIDI sequencer) which can be used to control the PSR-320/
420. The MIDI OUT connector transmits MIDI data generated by the PSR320/420 (e.g. note and velocity data produced by playing the keyboard).
More details on MIDI are provided on page 56.

The Split Mode
The SPLIT mode lets you play different voices with the left and right hands.
You could, for example, play bass with the left hand while playing piano with
the right. The right-hand voice is the keyboard voice you select in the normal
way (page 12), and the left hand voice is selected via the SPLIT VOICE function, described below. The “split point” is initially set at B2 (note number 59),
but it can be set at any key on the keyboard.
• The SPLIT mode and DUAL
VOICE feature (page 18) can be
used together. In this case the
dual voice plays simultaneously
with the right-hand voice only.
The SPLIT mode is engaged by pressing the [MODE] button so that the
indicator in the display appears next to “SPLIT” in the mode list to the right of
the display.

Digital Effects
The PSR-320/420 has four digital effects — Ambience, Ensemble, and
Ambience+Ensemble, and Sustain — that can be turned ON or OFF via the
[DIGITAL EFFECT] button. The individual effects are as follows:
DIGITAL
EFFECT
• Sustain does not apply to some
voices.
• 3: Amb+Ens is selected whenever the power switch is turned
on.
• Digital effect can not be turned
on when a keyboard percussion
kit is selected.
DIGITAL
EFFECT
1: Ambience
A reverb-like effect that adds an “ambient” feel to notes played
on the keyboard.
2: Ensemble
This effect produces a thicker, “detuned” sound. Please note
that the DUAL VOICE function (described below) cannot be
used at the same time as the Ensemble effect. DUAL VOICE
will be automatically turned off when the Ensemble effect is
turned on, and vice versa.
3: Amb+Ens
A combination of the Ambience and Ensemble effects described above.
4: Sustain
When Sustain is selected, all notes played on the keyboard
have a longer sustain.
You can change the digital effect applied to the current voice as follows:

example, if you press the MAIN [A] button while the MAIN A section is
playing, a fill-in will be produced, then the MAIN A section will continue
playing. When you select a different section, the fill-in will begin immediately and the new section will actually begin playing from the top of the

RHYTHM
This is the main rhythm track. The RHYTHM track usually
plays one of the keyboard percussion kits.
BASS
The BASS track always plays a bass line, but the voice will
change to fit the selected style … acoustic bass, synth bass,
tuba, etc.
CHORD
This track provides the rhythmic chordal accompaniment required by each style. You’ll find guitar, piano, and other chordal
instruments here.
PAD
This track plays long chords where necessary, using sustained
instruments such as strings, organ, choir.
PHRASE
This is where the musical embellishments reside. The
PHRASE track is used for punchy brass stabs, arpeggiated
chords, and other extras that make the accompaniment more
interesting.
• Some INTRO and ENDING
sections have 2 PHRASE tracks
(PHRASE 1 and PHRASE 2).
The melody of the INTRO and
ENDING sections is played using
the PHRASE 2 track.
• The icons for all tracks that contain data in any section will appear whenever an accompaniment style is selected.

The simplest form of accompaniment track control is provided by the
[ACCOMP LARGE/SMALL] button. This button alternately turns the
PAD and PHRASE tracks on and off, thereby changing the number of parts
in the accompaniment. When the LARGE accompaniment is selected and
the PAD and PHRASE tracks are ON, their respective icons (violins for the
PAD track and a trumpet for the PHRASE track) will appear in the appropriate positions in the display. The PAD and PHRASE 1 icons will not show

the target track (the voice number will flash), and then using the number
buttons or [–/NO] and [+/YES] buttons to select the desired voice number.
The data will actually be rewritten when the [PLAY/STOP] button is
pressed, the end of the song is reached, or the next voice change is encountered in the recorded data. The original voice number can be recalled before
it is actually rewritten by simultaneously pressing the [–/NO] and [+/YES]
buttons. Any other voice changes included in the recorded track data will
take effect at the appropriate times.
• The dual voice will change
automatically when a melody
track voice is changed.
• Voice and volume data can
only be rewritten in songs you
have recorded yourself.
The volume of each track can be rewritten during playback in the same
way. Use the cursor buttons to select the volume bar of the target track (the
volume bar will flash), and then use the [–/NO] and [+/YES] buttons to set
the maximum volume of the track as required. The shorter the bar, the lower
the volume. The data will actually be rewritten when the [PLAY/STOP]
button is pressed or the end of the song is reached. The original volume can
be recalled before it is actually rewritten by simultaneously pressing the
[–/NO] and [+/YES] buttons. The new volume data is written only at the
beginning of the track and affects the entire track.

The Multi Pads
The PSR-320/420 MULTI PADS can be used to play a number of short
pre-recorded rhythmic and melodic sequences, that can be used to add
impact and variety to your keyboard performances and SONG recordings. Some of the pad phrases simply play back as programmed, while
others are “chord match” types which are automatically transposed to
match chords played using the PSR-320/420 Auto Accompaniment
feature.

Simply tap any of the MULTI PADS at any time to play back the corresponding phrase. MULTI PAD playback begins as soon as the button is pressed.
You can even play two, three, or four MULTI PADS at the same time. Also, you
can create “retriggered sample” effects by repeatedly pressing a pad before its
contents are completely played back.
The MULTI PAD voices are independent from the voices you have currently
selected for keyboard performance. You could, for example, play piano on the

When a “chord match” type MULTI PAD phrase is played, the phrase will
be automatically transposed to match chords played using the PSR-320/420
Auto-accompaniment feature.

■ Inserting a Music Cartridge
With the power OFF, insert the Music Cartridge into the cartridge slot as
shown, and press down firmly until the
Cartridge is seated properly (as shown
in the illustration). The Cartridge is
shaped so that it will only fit in the slot
one way - don’t try to force it in the
wrong way. Turn the power back ON
again after inserting.
The triangular mark on the front of
the Cartridge should be completely
below the panel edge when the
Cartridge is properly seated.
For Cartridges without the mark,
the bottom of the serrated edges
of the Cartridge should be even
with the panel edge (not above it).
■ Music Cartridge Handling Precautions
• Do not leave Music Cartridges in locations which are
subject to excessive heat or humidity.
• Do not drop Music Cartridges or subject them to strong
shock.
• Do not disassemble Music Cartridges.
• Do not directly touch the Music Cartridge’s electrical
contacts. Persistently touching it may cause to break
electrical contacts or generate static electricity. Static
electric charges can cause loss of data and unreliable
operation.
• Do not insert objects or cartridges other than Yamaha
Music Cartridges in the PortaTone cartridge slot. Doing
so can result in serious damage to the instrument.
• Never attempt to insert or remove a cartridge when the
power switch is ON. Doing so can result in loss of the
PSR-320/420 memory data (song data/registration
memory data) or complete lack of control.
• The Music Cartridge data may not be selected or played
back correctly, if the electrical contacts on the Music
Cartridge are affected with dust. If this happens, insert
and remove the Music Cartridge several times. This may
solve the problem. If the problem still happens, wipe
and clean the electrical contacts on the Music Cartridge
with a dry soft cloth.
• Be sure to insert the Music Cartridge when you recall the registration
settings based on the cartridge data or playback the song based on
the cartridge data. Otherwise, “No Cart (Cartridge)” will appear on the
display.

Using Music Cartridges
Cartridge Accompaniment Styles
The Music Cartridge supplied with the PSR-320/420 provides an extra 8 accompaniment styles that can be
used in the same way as the internal accompaniment styles.
Selecting Cartridge Styles
1 Select the Style Function
...........................................................................................................
Press the [STYLE] button to directly select the STYLE function, or
press the [FUNCTION] button to the left of the display as many times as
necessary until the arrowhead in the display appears next to “STYLE” in the
function list to the left of the display.
2 Select and Use a Cartridge Style
................................................................................
To select a cartridge style, first press and hold the number [3] button (below the cartridge icon on the panel) until the cartridge icon appears to the
left of the style name in the display, then enter the number of the cartridge
style you want to select via the number buttons in the normal way (2 digits).
The cartridge styles can also be selected by using the [–/NO] and [+/YES]
buttons to go beyond the highest or lowest internal style numbers — e.g.
pressing the [+/YES] button while internal style number 00 is selected will
select cartridge style number 01 (the cartridge icon will appear).
The cartridge styles are used in exactly the same way as the internal accompaniment styles (page 24).

Using Music Cartridges
■ The Yamaha Style File Format
The Yamaha “Style File Format”, is an original Yamaha auto-accompaniment data format which has evolved through years of development and refinement of the Standard MIDI File and GM System Level 1 formats on
which it is based. Style File Format makes it possible to provide exceptionally high-quality accompaniments on many of our instruments, and in the
Music Cartridges used by the PSR-320/420.
Due to the sophisticated accompaniment capabilities provided by Style File
Format, some cartridge styles may have a different number of sections and/
or accompaniment tracks than the internal styles provided by the PSR-320/
420.
● Different Number of Sections
Some cartridge styles, for example, have A and B intro and ending sections as well as A and B main sections. In such a case, if the [INTRO]
and MAIN [A] buttons are pressed in order to start the accompaniment
with an introduction and then go to the main A section, the intro A section will play. If the [INTRO] and MAIN [B] buttons are pressed, the
intro B section will play. A similar situation applies to endings: if the
main A or B section is playing and the [ENDING] button is pressed, the
ending A or B section will play accordingly.
● Different Number of Tracks
While the PSR-320/420 styles have one rhythm, one bass, one chord, one
pad, and one phrase track, some cartridge styles may have two rhythm,
chord, and/or phrase tracks. In such a case these individual tracks can be
selected by moving the cursor from track to track in the normal way. If
the RHYTHM 1 track is selected and the cursor is moved once to the
right, for example, the cursor will not actually move but “RHYTHM 2”
will appear in place of “RHYTHM 1” and the parameters for the
RHYTHM 2 track can be changed as required. The same applies to the
CHORD 1 and 2, and PHRASE 1 and 2 tracks.

Cartridge Registration Presets
The Music Cartridge supplied with the PSR-320/420 provides 8 banks of preset registration settings (8
banks x 4 registration memories = 32 total) that provide a number of useful registration setups (refer to page
33 for details on the registration memory).
Selecting Cartridge Registration

To select a cartridge registration memory, first press and hold the number
[3] button (below the cartridge icon on the panel) until the cartridge icon
appears to the left of the registration bank number in the display, then enter
the number of the bank you want to select via the number buttons in the
normal way (page 33). The cartridge registration memories can also be selected by using the [–/NO] and [+/YES] buttons to go beyond the highest or
lowest internal bank numbers — e.g. pressing the [+/YES] button while
internal bank number 08 is selected will select cartridge registration bank
number 01 (the cartridge icon will appear).
The individual cartridge registration memories are recalled via the REGISTRATION MEMORY buttons and used in exactly the same way as the

MIDI Functions
MIDI, the Musical Instrument Digital Interface, is a world-standard communication interface that allows
MIDI-compatible musical instruments and equipment to share musical information and control one another.
This makes it possible to create “systems” of MIDI instruments and equipment that offer far greater versatility and control than is available with isolated instruments.
● The MIDI Connectors
The MIDI IN connector receives MIDI data from an external MIDI device which can be used to control the PSR-320/420. The MIDI OUT
connector transmits MIDI data generated by the PSR-320/420 (e.g. note
and velocity data produced by playing the keyboard).
OUT
MIDI
IN
● Simple MIDI Control
Most MIDI keyboards (including the PSR-320/420, of course) transmit
note and velocity (touch response) information via the MIDI OUT connector whenever a note is played on the keyboard. If the MIDI OUT
connector is connected to the MIDI IN connector of a second keyboard
(synthesizer, etc.) or a tone generator (essentially a synthesizer with no
keyboard), the second keyboard or tone generator will respond precisely
to notes played on the original transmitting keyboard. The result is that
you can effectively play two instruments at once, providing thick multiinstrument sounds. The PSR-320/420 also transmits “program change”
data when one of its voices is selected. Depending on how the receiving
device is set up, the corresponding voice will be automatically selected
on the receiving keyboard or tone generator whenever a voice is selected
on the PSR-320/420.

The PSR-320/420 is capable of receiving the same MIDI data, so a second MIDI keyboard connected to the PSR-320/420 MIDI IN connector
can be used to remotely play the PSR-320/420 and select voices as required.

● MIDI Sequence Recording
Although the PSR-320/420 features a built-in “sequencer (the SONG
recorder is a type of sequencer), the same type of musical information
transfer described above can be used for more sophisticated MIDI sequence recording using an external sequencer or music computer. A
MIDI sequence recorder or music computer can be used to “record”
MIDI data received from a PSR-320/420, for example. When the recorded data is played back, the PSR-320/420 automatically “plays” the
recorded performance in precise detail.

■ Remote Channel ..........................................................................................................................................
Sets the MIDI channel on which data from a remote keyboard will be
received. Any of the standard MIDI channels — 1 through 16 — can be
specified. The remote keyboard must be set up to transmit on the specified
remote channel, and the keyboard’s MIDI OUT connector must be connected to the PSR-320/420 MIDI IN connector via a standard MIDI cable.
Refer to the “MIDI Implementation Chart” section (page 68) for technical
details. When set to “oFF” data is received on all 16 MIDI channels. The
default setting — “oFF” — can be recalled by pressing the [–/NO] and [+/
YES] buttons simultaneously.
• Remote Channel is automatically
turned off when a MIDI “GM ON”
message is received.
• The Remote channel setting is
retained in memory even when
the power switch is turned off, as
long as batteries are installed or
an AC adaptor is connected.

Overall Functions
■ Local Control ......................................................................................................................................................
“Local Control” refers to the fact that, normally, the PSR-320/420 keyboard controls the internal tone generator, allowing the internal voices to be
played directly from the keyboard. This situation is “Local Control on”
since the internal tone generator is controlled locally by its own keyboard.
Local control can be turned off, however, so that the keyboard does not play
the internal voices, but the appropriate MIDI information is still transmitted
via the MIDI OUT connector when notes are played on the keyboard. At
the same time, the internal tone generator can respond to MIDI information
received via the MIDI IN connector. This means that while an external
MIDI sequencer, for example, plays the PSR-320/420 internal voices, an
external tone generator can be played from the PSR-320/420 keyboard. The
default Local Control setting is “on”.
oon Local
■ External Clock ..................................................................................................................................................
Reception of external MIDI clock signal can be enabled or disabled as
required.
When disabled (“oFF”), the PSR-320/420 is controlled by its own internal clock. When MIDI clock reception is enabled (“on”), however, the PSR320/420 is controlled by an external MIDI clock signal received via the
MIDI IN terminal. The default setting is “oFF”.
oFF ExtClock
• If the External Clock function is
turned “on” but the external
clock signal is interrupted for
more than 400 milliseconds, the
internal clock is re-selected
automatically.
• External Clock setting is retained
in memory even when the power
switch is turned OFF, as long as
batteries are installed or an AC
adaptor is connected.
■ Initial Data Send ...........................................................................................................................................
Transmits all current panel settings to a MIDI data storage device before
actually recording your performance. With the “InitSnd?” function selected,
press the [+/YES] button to start transmission. When the data has been
transmitted, “End” will appear momentarily on the display and return to the
“InitSnd?”.
YES InitSnd?
• The song data will not be played
back correctly, if the panel settings for the song has not been
recorded in advance. To record
the panel settings to an external
device, engage the external
device in the record mode and
execute the Initial Data Send
operation.

■ Bulk Data Send ...............................................................................................................................................
This function causes the contents of the registration and song memories
to be transmitted via the MIDI OUT connector. This data can be saved to
memory or disk via a MIDI sequence recorder or MIDI data recorder, and
then reloaded when required. The bulk data can also be sent directly to a
second PSR-320/420.
To send the bulk data select the “BulkSnd?” function, then press the
[+/YES] button. “Sure?” will appear on the display. Press [+/YES] again to
begin transmission of the bulk data. “BkSnd:Sg” (song data) and then
“BkSnd:Rg” (registration data) will appear on the display during transmission. When the bulk data has been transmitted, “End” will appear momentarily on the display and return to the “BulkSnd?”.
• A bulk dump transmission can be
stopped at any time by pressing
the [–/NO] button.
• No other operations can be
performed during bulk dump
transmission.
YES BulkSnd?
■ Receiving Bulk Data
The PSR-320/420 will automatically receive compatible bulk data from
an external MIDI device as long as no style playback or song recording/
playback operation is in progress. “BkRcv:Sg” (song data) and then
“BkRcv:Rg” (registration data) will appear on the display during reception.
When the bulk data has been received, “End” will appear momentarily on
the display and return to the previously selected display.
001 BkRcv:Sg
• No other operations can be
performed during bulk dump
reception.
• If an error is encountered
during bulk data reception,
“BkRcvErr” and then either
“MemClrSg” or “MemClrRg”
will appear on the display
indicating that either the song
or registration memory has
been cleared.
• When a bulk dump is received,
the received data replaces any
data that was previously in the
PSR-320/420 memory.

Appendix: Voice & Polyphony List
The PSR-320/420 can play up to 28 individual notes at the same time (i.e. it
has a maximum “polyphony” of 28). This number includes all voices used:
dual, split, auto accompaniment, song, and multi pads. If the maximum polyphony of the PSR-320/420 is exceeded, the excess notes will be truncated
(they will not sound).
Another feature affecting polyphony is the fact that some PSR-320/420
voices actually use two voices at once, as shown in the voice list below. The
effective maximum polyphony of the PSR-320/420 is correspondingly reduced
when these voices are used.

Appendix: Troubleshooting
Something not working as it should? In many cases what appears to be a malfunction can be traced to a simple error that can be remedied immediately. Before assuming that your PSR-320/420 is faulty, please check the following points.
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSE/SOLUTION
The speakers produce a “pop” sound
whenever the power is turned ON or
OFF.
This is normal and is no cause for alarm.
Reduced volume.
Poor sound quality.
Improper song playback.
“Btry Low” sometimes appears.
Display has gone out and the panel
setting has been set to default.
The batteries probably need to be replaced. Replace all six batteries with new ones
of the same type, as described on page 6.
No sound when the keyboard is
played.
The Local Control function could be turned off. Make sure Local Control is turned on
(page 59).
Not all simultaneously-played notes
sound.
You are probably exceeding the maximum polyphony of the PSR-320/420. The
PSR-320/420 can play up to 28 notes at the same time — including split, dual, autoaccompaniment, song memory, and multi pad notes. Notes exceeding this limit will
not sound.
Auto accompaniment won’t sound right if you’re using SINGLE FINGER type fingering when the SINGLE FINGER mode is not selected (page 22).
Auto accompaniment won’t function
properly. No lower keyboard sound.
Are you sure you’re playing in the Auto-Accompaniment section of the keyboard?
Are you playing chords that the PSR-320/420 can recognize (see chord types on
page 23)?
The selected voice does not sound
when the keyboard is played.
Make sure that the Keyboard Volume, Split Voice Volume, and/or Dual Voice Volume
parameters are set at an appropriate level (pages 53, 16, and 18).
Rhythm doesn’t sound when started.
Some sections of some styles do not use the accompaniment rhythm track.
Operation of the sustain pedal is
reversed.
Sustain pedal operation will be reversed if you turn on the power or plug in the pedal
while pressing the pedal. For normal operation turn off the power then turn it back
on while the pedal is not pressed.
The desired parameter cannot be
edited.
The cursor is not located at the parameter to be edited. Make sure that the cursor is
located at the parameter to be edited (the parameter should be flashing).
Accompaniment does not play properly.
Make sure that the accompaniment tracks you want to hear are not muted (page
29), and that the Accomp Volume parameter is turned up to a reasonable level
(page 54).
The Harmony/Dual Voice/Digital Effect function will not turn on.
Neither of these functions can be turned ON if a percussion kit voice is selected.
Make sure a voice between number 01 and 141 is selected.
The Harmony effect cannot be turned ON when the FINGERED FULL mode is in
use.
Make sure that an appropriate Yamaha Music Cartridge is properly plugged into
the cartridge slot (page 44).
Cartridge data cannot be selected or
cannot be played back correctly.
Individual registration or song
memory data transmitted via bulk
dump from an external sequencer or
other device is not received by the
PSR-320/420.
The electrical contacts on the Music Cartridge are affected with dust. Insert and
remove the Music Cartridge several times. This may solve the problem. If the
problem still happens, wipe and clear the electrical contacts on the Music Cartridge with a dry soft cloth.
Transmit the data with no more than a 2-second break between blocks, or transmit
as entirely separate data.

PSR-320/420 functions as 16 MIDI channel multi-timbral tone
generator.
The Remote Keyboard channel can be set by the panel settings.
The designated channels on the PSR-320/420 can be controlled
by an external device and receive all the data excepting the following control change data:
<MIDI Master Volume>
F0H, 7FH, 7FH, 04H, 01H, II, mm, F7H
Allows the volume of all channels to be changed simultaneously (universal system exclusive).
“mm” is used as the MIDI Master Volume value (“ll” is ignored).
The relation between MIDI Master Volume value and the actual
volume is the same as the one between control change master
volume value and the actual volume.
Data entry, MSB, LSB
Portamento control
RPN data increment
RPN data decrement
RPN LSB, MSB
*1
The default value for “mm” is 7FH.
<MIDI Master Tuning>
F0H, 43H, 1nH, 27H, 30H, 00H, mm, ll, cc, F7H
Allows the pitch of all channels to be changed simultaneously.
“mmll” is used as the MIDI Master Tuning value, and the actual
tuning value is represented as follows:
Bank select transmission: The LSB is fixed at 00H.
Bank select reception: The bank select MSB is used for melody
voice and rhythm voice switching.
T=M–128 (28<=M<=228)
Where T is the actual tuning value in cents. M is decimal value represented by 1-byte using bits 0..3 of “mm”
as the MSB and bits 0..3 of “ll” as the LSB.
The default values of “mm” and “ll” are 08H and 00H,
respectively.
n and cc are also recognized.
This value is not reset by a GM1 System On or Reset All Controllers message.
MSB 00H: Melody voice.
MSB 7FH: Rhythm voice.
The bank select LSB is ignored.
The bank select on the channel 10 is ignored.
No voice change will occur when only a bank select is received.
When a program change is received the latest bank select
value is used.
<Panel Voice>
F0H, 43H, 76H, 1B, cc, vv, F7H
This message alternately selects Panel voice or GM voice.
cc: MIDI channel
vv: 00=GM voice mode, 01=Panel Voice mode
The channel designated as the Remote Keyboard channel is
fixed to Panel voice mode.
*2
RPN transmits and receives the following data:
Pitch bend sensitivity: BnH, 64H, 00H, 65H, 00H
Fine tuning:
BnH, 64H, 01H, 65H, 00H
Coarse tuning:
BnH, 64H, 02H, 65H, 00H
Null:
BnH, 64H, 7FH, 65H, 7FH
*3
Reset all controllers.
Pitch bend, modulation, expression, sustain, sostenuto, and registered parameter number are returned to their default values.
Portamento is reset.
*4
Exclusive.
<GM1 System ON>
F0H, 7EH, 7FH, 09H, 01H, F7H
All parameters except MIDI Master Tuning are reset to their
default values.
*5
Internal/External clock selectable.
*6
Start/Stop messages is transmitted.
<DISK ORCHESTRA ON> F0H, 43H, 73H, 01H, 14H, F7H
Disk Orchestra Collection disk can be played on the PSR320/420 via an external FDD device.
*7
Each channel receives the message (in Panel voice mode), but
ignores the message if the channel is in GM voice mode.
The relation between the ambience depth value and actual effect
value is defined as follows:
<DISK ORCHESTRA OFF> F0H, 43H, 73H, 01H, 13H, F7H
<Bulk Dump>
Song Memory:
F0H, 43H, 76H, 20H, bl, bh, <DATA>, cs, F7H
Registration Memory:
F0H, 43H, 76H, 21H, bl, bh, <DATA>, cs, F7H
“bl” and “bh” represent the total byte count as “bl + bh*128”.
cs= Checksum.
0~25:OFF, 26~81:1, 82~121:2, 122~127:3 (MAX)
■ GM System Level 1
The existing MIDI protocol allows performance and other data to be transferred between different instruments,
even if they are from different manufacturers. This means, for example, that sequence data that was originally created
to control a tone generator from manufacturer A can also be used to control a different tone generator from manufacturer B. Since the voice allocation in different devices from different manufacturers is usually different, however, appropriate program change data must be transmitted to select the right voices.
The General MIDI protocol was developed to minimize confusion and the need for re-programming when playing
software created by one MIDI device on another. This has been achieved by defining a standard voice allocation in
which the same or similar voices are accessed by the same program change numbers or MIDI channels. The current
standard recognized by the International MIDI Association is known as “GM System Level 1.” The PSR-320/420 voice
allocation complies with the GM System Level 1 standard.
