Main Feature
*The PLGLFRQWURO MIDI master controller keyboard provides 49
dynamic Piano keys, which can draw 5V DC power directly from
your PC sound card. Therefore, you don't need an external powersupply or batteries to activate your instrument when used with a PC.
* PLGLFRQWURO provides an optional 15 pin 5V DC adapter to
connect to other MIDI devices or an Apple Macintosh.
* PLGLFRQWURO can also use 6 x 6C size battery for portability
and program memory.
*To set up the MIDI connection of your PLGLFRQWURO to your PC’s
sound card, your PLGLFRQWURO comes with an unique 15 pin to 15
pin MIDI adapting cable. This cable connects your PLGLFRQWURO
keyboard to your PC sound card's Joystick port, which makes it
simple to expand your system.
*The PLGLFRQWURO provides a MIDI OUT socket for connecting to
other MIDI devices such as sound modules or synthesisers as a
second MIDI OUT when you use 15 pin to 15 pin MIDI adapting
cable to connect to PC.
*There is also a socket for an optional sustain -footswitch.
*Although the PLGLFRQWURO has no built-in sound capabilities, it
offers a great variety of useful MIDI functions.

- Something you should know before using the MIDI Functions -
MIDI is the acronym for Musical Instrument Digital Interface,
which makes all digital musical instruments equipped with this
standardised interface capable of exchanging their MIDI data or “talk
to each other”!
To explain how MIDI works on your instrument in more detail, the
following illustrations will outline the MIDI functions of the
PLGLFRQWURO, which allow you to connect the keyboard to other
MIDI instruments. The versatile MIDI capability of the
PLGLFRQWURO will offer you tremendous power in a MIDI
environment.

Using the MIDI Functions:
1. Connecting the keyboard to other MIDI instruments:
To transmit MIDI data from your keyboard to other
professional MIDI instruments, please purchase a MIDI cable
and use it to connect the MIDI OUT jack of your
PLGLFRQWURO to the MIDI IN jack of the other instrument.
Make sure that the MIDI "transmit" channel on your
PLGLFRQWURO matches the MIDI "receive" channel of the
other instrument.

1. Using the Pitch Bend Wheel:
The Pitch Bend wheel is used for raising or lowering the pitch of a
voice during performance. The range of pitch values depends on
the sound generator (sound card or module) being used. Please
refer to the manuals of your devices for information on how to
change the Pitch Bend range. To bend the pitch up, please move
the wheel away from you. To bend the pitch down, please move
the wheel towards you.

2. Using the Modulation Wheel:
It is very common to use the modulation wheel to change the
intensity of effects: mainly Vibrato( pitch change), Tremolo
(change the volume), and Modulation (change the tone). The
Modulation wheel produces a vibrato effect shortly after the sound
is generated. It is most effective for voice such as Saxophone
Strings and Oboe.
3. Data Entry Slide:
This slide controller allows you to adjust the following parameters:
Volume, Velocity, Chorus, Reverb, Pan pot, and Aftertouch
directly from your keyboard directly.
4. MIDI / SELECT button:
Use this button to select different MIDI commands on certain keys
from your keyboard.
PLGLFRQWURO provides several groups of MIDI commands as
follows:
a. MIDI Channels group :
Pressing the MIDI/SELECT button and then pressing the MCH
(MIDI Channel) key allows you to select the transmitting channel for
your keyboard. The default Channel is 1 when the keyboard's power

MIDI/SELECT button and -2 key then press MIDI/SELECT button to
finish the change.
c. Transposer Group:
Pressing the MIDI/SELECT button and the TRANSPOSE Key you
increase or decrease the notes by halftones. If you want to transpose
by 3 semitones: Press the MIDI/SELECT button and the ”#” key, (in
the display you see 3 for three semitones) than press MIDI/SELECT
to finish the change.
