Introduction
Power Connection
Standard AC current supplies the Andante CUP2A’s power. Before connecting the AC power cord, make sure that the
power on/off switch (located on the right end of the keyboard) is in the OFF position.
Connect the AC power cord to the AC receptacle on the rear panel of the Andante CUP2A. Then connect the power
cord to an AC outlet.
CAUTION:
The Andante CUP2A runs on AC power and works with voltages from 100 - 240 volts at
50–60 Hz. The voltage level is detected and set automatically by the CUP2A.
Do not attempt to connect the power cord to a non-standard AC power source.
The AC plug shape will vary
depending on location of use
After the CUP2A is set up, turn the power on. While the unit is performing its power-up routine some of the front panel
buttons will flash. After a couple of seconds, the display will read 1 Grand Piano. The CUP2A is now ready to play.
Use the Quick Start instructions on the following pages for the basic steps to change Voices or play one of the Demo
Songs.
Volume
Before turning on the Andante CUP2A, it’s always a good idea to set the volume at its minimum setting (all the way to
the left). For a generally comfortable level of volume while playing, set the knob at its middle position.
The Volume Control is located on the front of the control panel. Turn this knob from left to right (clockwise) to increase
the volume. This adjusts the Andante CUP2A speaker and headphone audio volume. The Volume control does not
affect the volume of the sound coming from external sources through the Audio In jacks.
See Settings Mode to adjust tone controls for this instrument.
Headphone Jacks
The CUP2A has two stereo 1/4” headphone jacks located on the front face of the slide-out control panel.control panel.
Plugging in headphones provides privacy during practice. Both jacks operate the same so two people can play and
hear the music together. When headphones are connected the CUP2A’s speakers are silent.

Introduction
Cabinet Lid
To put the CUP2A top lid in the open position for a richer piano sound, pull it up gently near the center of the front
where there is an indentation.
While holding it up, locate the prop just under the lid at the right end. Rotate the prop up toward the front then lower the
lid until it is resting on the prop.
Quick Start

Overview
Input/Output Panel
The Input/Output panel is located on the rear of the instrument cabinet.
Audio In and Audio Out
Audio Out (RCA jacks) may be used to connect the Andante CUP2A to external audio equipment, such as an
outboard mixer, powered speakers, or recording device.
Audio In jacks are used to connect the Andante CUP2A’s internal speakers to other devices such as
a digital audio player or CD player. Always turn off the CUP2A’s power before plugging or unplugging
cables into the Audio In jacks.
The Andante CUP2A’s Volume and Tone Controls do not affect the volume or tone of the sound coming
from the Audio In jacks. Therefore it is best to use a device that has its own output level control and to
use that to adjust the sound volume from the external device.
MIDI In, Out and Thru ports
Use the MIDI In, Out and Thru ports to connect the Andante CUP2A to other MIDI devices to receive and
send MIDI data.
CC Pedal (Volume/Expression Pedal)
This jack is used to connect a continuous controller pedal for volume and expression control. The CUP2A requires a pedal with a TRS 1/4” connector and 10k linear potentiometer. Most manufacturers EXCEPT Yamaha
and Korg make pedals with the same specifications and should work. Yamaha and Korg pedals typically use
an exponential potentiometer and therefore will not work correctly. The CC-1 pedal is available from Kurzweil.
You can order the CC-1 through your local Kurzweil dealer.
USB
Connect a USB cable to this port to send and receive MIDI or to connect to a computer to apply system
updates.

Midi
About MIDI
MIDI is the acronym for Musical Instrument Digital Interface. It is the industry standard protocol which allows the exchange of musical data between electronic musical instruments, devices (such as a sequencer), and computers. MIDI
enables MIDI-equipped devices designed by different manufacturers to communicate MIDI data to each other.
MIDI data is sent or received using standard MIDI cables to connect to other MIDI devices or a USB cable to connect
to a computer. The Andante CUP2A is equipped with conventional MIDI In, Out and Thru ports, and a USB port. The
Andante CUP2A has a standard class-compliant USB-MIDI implementation, and does not require the installation of any
additional drivers.
MIDI Channels
Similar to television channels, MIDI protocol transmits multiple channels of MIDI performance data. Typical MIDI instruments can play up to 16 channels at the same time. Each channel can be assigned its own voice.
To change and/or assign MIDI channels, enter Settings Mode and select the MIDI Channel parameter. See the MIDI
Implementation chart at the end of this chapter for details.
MIDI In, Out and Thru Ports
The CUP2A is equipped with the conventional MIDI In and Out, and Thru ports. The MIDI In port is used to receive
MIDI data from another MIDI device; the MIDI Out port is used to transmit the MIDI data generated by the CUP2A
to another MIDI device; the MIDI Thru port passes MIDI In data along to an external device.
When you connect the MIDI Out of the CUP2A to the MIDI In of another instrument, you can play the sounds of
both instruments simultaneously from the CUP2A’s keyboard.
When you connect the MIDI In of the CUP2A to the MIDI Out of another controller, you can control the CUP2A using
the other controller.
Depending on your system setup, you may want to use the CUP2A MIDI Thru port to pass MIDI information from a
MIDI controller or computer sequencer to the CUP2A and on to the next device in your system.

USB MIDI Connection
In addition to the conventional MIDI In, Out, and Thru ports, the Andante CUP2A also has a USB (Universal Serial Bus)
port on the panel on the back of the piano. You can connect the CUP2A directly to a computer with a USB cable. This
connection transmits and receives MIDI data between the CUP2A and the computer.
The Andante CUP2A supports the “Plug and Play” feature used in the Windows XP or higher and Macintosh operating
systems. No drivers are required to use this connection; but you may need to enable MIDI on your computer’s sound
and audio control panel.
To use the Andante CUP2A as a MIDI controller with a computer, use any Type-A to Type-B USB cable. By default, the
CUP2A acts as a MIDI controller (not a hard drive) when connected to a computer.
If you have a sequencer program installed on your computer, you can use this USB connection to record and play
your music. The Andante CUP2A‘s recorder is actually a simple sequencer and the performance you record into the
CUP2A’s memory is MIDI performance data. Using a computer-based sequencer program provides unlimited memory,
editing, and the ability to post on the Internet.
Using Windows applications for MIDI control
Certain apps (like Windows Media Player - WMP) released with Windows Vista or later can no longer play MIDI songs
triggering external MIDI devices; WMP is only routed to the internal Microsoft GS Synthesizer.
This means the MIDI app you choose to use must natively offer its own built-in MIDI mapping abilities. Most commercial MIDI software products for PC have a configuration screen which includes the MIDI device mapping necessary to
route to an external MIDI device such as the Andante CUP2A.
