CP4 STAGE/CP40 STAGE Reference Manual
Design of the CP4 STAGE & CP40 STAGE
Makeup
In terms of sound production, the CP4 STAGE and CP40 STAGE each comprises three blocks — namely, the
controllers, the tone generator, and the effect unit.
Controllers
Tone generator
Effect unit
Controllers
In order that it may be played, the instrument features a range of controllers such as the keyboard, pitch
bend wheel, modulation wheel, and sliders. Performance data reflecting the pitch of each key played and
the velocity (or strength) with which it was played is sent to the tone generator in the form of MIDI messages.
Data generated by operating the wheels, sliders, pedals, and the like is also sent in the same way.
Keyboard
The keyboard is the main controller used to send performance information to the tone generator. Using the
[-] and [+] TRANSPOSE buttons, you can change the pitches of the keys in semitone units.
Pitch Bend Wheel
The pitch bend wheel can be used to control the pitch of played
notes in a continuously variable manner. Notes are bent upward
when you push the pitch bend wheel away from you and vice
versa. When you release this wheel, the finger slot at the center will
automatically spring back to the original position, and the pitch will
return to normal. The pitch-bend range — that is, the degree to
which pitches can be varied using this wheel — can be set on the
Play Mode screen (page 17) from the Performance Part Edit area.
Notes are bent
upward
Notes are bent
downward
In addition to pitch bending, you can also assign control of an
insertion effect (page 11) parameter to the pitch bend wheel. To do
so, use the Controller screen (page 21) from the Performance Part
Edit area.
Modulation Wheel
The modulation wheel is normally used to add vibrato and other
suitable effects to the played notes. The more the finger slot is
pushed away from you, the greater the intensity of the effect and
vice-versa. The effect is, therefore, minimized when the slot is
closest to the front of the instrument. If you do not want to apply the
modulation wheel’s effect, it should be returned to this position.
In addition to applying modulation, you can also assign control of a
parameter from an insertion effect (page 11) to the modulation
wheel. To do so, use the Controller screen (page 21) from the
Performance Part Edit area.

Design of the CP4 STAGE & CP40 STAGE > Controllers
Sliders
The CP4 STAGE and CP40 STAGE are each equipped with two sets of sliders — the Part sliders and the
MASTER EQUALIZER (EQ) sliders.
Part sliders
Located on the left of the control panel, the Part sliders are used to adjust parameter levels for individual
Parts. There is one slider for each of the instrument’s Parts, and they can be used to adjust three parameters
— volume, chorus send, and reverb send. To change the parameter currently being adjusted, press the
[SLIDER FUNCTION] button located to the right of the sliders the required number of times. Moving the
sliders away from you increases the level of the current parameter and vice-versa.
NOTE For more details on using the Part sliders, refer to the Quick Start Guide section of the Owner’s Manual.
NOTE Operating the Part sliders also changes the settings of the Volume, ChoSend, and RevSend parameters from the Performance
Part Edit area’s Play Mode screen (page 17).
Parameter level increases
Parameter level decreases
(Illustration shows the CP4 STAGE.)
MASTER EQ sliders
The master EQ is used to adjust the overall tone of the instrument, and the MASTER EQ sliders control the
gain in individual frequency bands. Located on the right of the control panel, each of these sliders is
assigned to a different frequency band. Moving a slider away from you increases the gain in the
corresponding frequency band and vice-versa.

CP4 STAGE/CP40 STAGE Reference Manual
Design of the CP4 STAGE & CP40 STAGE > Controllers
Pedals
Two different types of pedal can be used with the CP4 STAGE and CP40 STAGE — foot switches, such as
the bundled FC3A and the optional FC4A and FC5, and a foot controller like the optional FC7.
Foot switches
The FC3A that comes with your CP4 STAGE or CP40 STAGE should be connected via the [SUSTAIN] FOOT
SWITCH jack. This allows it to be used in the same way as the damper pedal of an acoustic piano, causing
the notes played on the keyboard to sustain for longer. Instead of having the foot switch simply turn damping
on and off, you can also have the amount of sustain change depending on how much the pedal is operated.
This setting is made on the Controller screen (page 43) from the Utility area. Configured in this way, the piano
will produce longer notes when the foot switch is operated by a greater amount and vice-versa.
NOTE By default, the Sustain parameter from the Utility area’s Controller screen is set to “FC3 Half On”.
The FC4A and FC5 (sold separately) can be connected via the [ASSIGNABLE] FOOT SWITCH jack so that
various functions can be assigned to them. For example, on the Controller screen (page 21) from the
Performance Part Edit area, you can assign on/off switching of an insertion effect (page 11) to one of these
foot switches. Alternatively, you can assign a MIDI control change number to an FC4A or FC5 on the
Controller screen (page 43) from the Utility area. The foot switch will then control the corresponding
parameter when operated. It should be noted that the FC4A or FC5 can also be connected via the
[SUSTAIN] FOOT SWITCH jack.
Foot controller
The FC7 Foot Controller (sold separately) can be used to control an assigned parameter: On the CP4
STAGE, the FC7 can be connected via the [1] and [2] FOOT CONTROLLER jacks; on the CP40 STAGE, it
can be connected via the [FOOT CONTROLLER] jack. For example, on the Controller screen (page 21) from
the Performance Part Edit area, you could assign control of a Part’s volume or a parameter from one of the
insertion effects (page 11). Alternatively, you could assign a MIDI control change number to an FC7 on the
Controller screen (page 43) from the Utility area. The corresponding parameter can then be controlled by
operating the foot controller.
(Illustration shows the CP4 STAGE.)

CP4 STAGE/CP40 STAGE Reference Manual
Design of the CP4 STAGE & CP40 STAGE > Tone Generator
Tone Generator
The tone generator produces sound based on data received from controllers such as the keyboard and
sliders. The basic element of CP4 STAGE and CP40 STAGE sounds is referred to as a Voice, and
Performances are made up of multiple Voices. Both the Voice and the Performance are described below.
Voices
Each Voice represents a different instrument sound that the CP4 STAGE or CP40 STAGE can produce.
Generally speaking, your stage piano can produce two different types of Voice — Normal and Drum.
NOTE A full list of your instrument’s Voices can be found in the Data List (pdf).
Normal Voices
Normal Voices are primarily used to reproduce the sound of instruments played within a specific musical
scale. That is to say, the pitch of these Voices will change based on the key played.
Drum Voices
Drum Voices are generally used to produce the sounds of percussion instruments. With these Voices, a
different drum or percussion instrument sound is assigned to the various keys on the keyboard. For this
reason, Drum Voices can also be referred to as drum kits.
One Drum Voice (or Drum Kit)
Different percussion
sound for each key
(Illustration shows a typical Drum Voice.)
Voice categories
The various different Voices on your CP4 STAGE or CP40 STAGE are arranged into a number of categories.
Each category represents a different type of instrument, such as piano or organ, or a sound genre. The
following table shows these categories, and each contains a number of different Voices.

Performances
A group of Voices is referred to as a Performance, and both the CP4 STAGE and CP40 STAGE come with a
wide range of Performances ready for use.
NOTE A full list of your instrument’s Performances can be found in the Data List (pdf).
Parts within a Performance
As shown in the illustration below, each CP4 STAGE Performance contains three Parts; each CP40 STAGE
Performance, two Parts. A Voice is assigned to each of these Parts in order to configure the Performance. In
addition, the Parts that make up a Performance can be overlaid (layering) or divided into separate regions of
the keyboard (splitting).

Performances and Voices
Voices are linked to Performances — that is to say, when you select a new Performance, the Voices for all
Parts will change. In addition, if you select a Part and change its Voice, that change will be reflected in the
current Performance (see the illustration below for details). Changing Voices in this way is referred to as
Performance editing, and this will be described in more detail on the following page. It is important to bear in
mind that Performance editing mode is activated as soon as one of the Part Voices is changed. In addition, if
you select a different Performance at this time, editing mode for the previous Performance will be cancelled
and you will be able to edit the newly selected one.

Editing Performances
While the CP4 STAGE and CP40 STAGE come with a wide range of Performances already built-in, you can
also create your own. The process of editing a Performance involves changing its Part’s Voice assignments
and various other parameters. Parameters that affect a specific Part are referred to as Part parameters; those
affecting all Parts are referred to as Common parameters.
NOTE For details on the parameters that can be edited to create Performances, refer to Performance Editing (page 13).
Storing Performances internally
When you are happy with the Performance that you are editing, it must be stored on the instrument if you
intend to use it again at a later date. At this time, you can choose a Performance from the stage piano’s User
Memory (page 12) to overwrite with your edited Performance. Alternatively, you can store without specifying
a different Performance, and this will result in the current Performance being overwritten.
NOTE For details on the procedure for storing Performances, refer to the description of the Store Performance function (page 29). For
details on the procedure for renaming a Performance, refer to the description of the Name screen (page 15) from the
Performance Common Edit area.
Saving Performances externally
Performances stored on the stage piano can also be saved to a USB flash-memory device. You will need to
carry out this procedure if you create more original Performances than can be stored internally or if you wish
to create a backup of your Performances. While Performances can be stored internally on an individual
basis, all Performances from User Memory are saved together to a USB flash-memory device as a single Alltype file. The extension .C7A is used for CP4 STAGE Performances; the extension .C8A, for CP40 STAGE
Performances. In addition, Performances saved as an All-type file to a USB flash-memory device can be
loaded together back into the stage piano. Alternatively, any one of the Performances from the saved file can
be selected and loaded individually.
NOTE For details on the procedure for saving Performances externally, refer to the description of the Save screen (page 32) from the
File area.
NOTE For details on the procedure for loading Performances back into the stage piano, refer to the description of the Load screen
(page 33) from the File area.

CP4 STAGE/CP40 STAGE Reference Manual
Design of the CP4 STAGE & CP40 STAGE > Effect Unit
Effect Unit
The effect unit is used to apply a range of different effects to the sounds produced by the tone generator in
order, for example, to add thickness, reverb, or a sense of space. In this way, the effect unit can make your
stage piano sound much more expressive.
Makeup of Effects
The CP4 STAGE and CP40 STAGE feature insertion effects for use with individual Parts, system effects that
can be configured for each Performance, and a master compressor and master EQ that affect all
Performances in the same way. Voices produced by the tone generator are processed by the insertion
effects, the system effects, and the master compressor and master EQ in that order, before being output via
your amplifier and speakers.

CP4 STAGE/CP40 STAGE Reference Manual
Design of the CP4 STAGE & CP40 STAGE > Effect Unit
Insertion effects
Assigned to individual Parts, insertion effects process the sound of the corresponding Voice. Two are
available for use in a Performance, each containing two independent effects, A and B. Parameters for these
effects can be set on the Effect-A and Effect-B screens (page 21) from the Performance Part Edit area. In
addition, the insertion effects can be conveniently turned on and off using the [A] and [B] PART EFFECT
buttons from the control panel.
System effects
The CP4 STAGE and CP40 STAGE feature chorus and reverb as system effects. Because these operate as
send-type effects, audio signals corresponding to the send levels set for each Part are sent together to the
chorus and reverb units, which each output a single processed audio signal. Parameters for chorus and
reverb can be set on the Chorus Effect and Reverb Effect screens (page 14) from the Performance Common
Edit area. In addition, the system effects can be conveniently turned on and off using the [CHORUS] and
[REVERB] SYSTEM EFFECT buttons from the control panel.
NOTE Send levels for each Part can be adjusted using the Part sliders (page 5).
Master compressor
The master compressor modifies the overall sound of the stage piano, and therefore, the same parameters
apply to all Performances. These parameters can be set on the MasterComp screen (page 44) from the
Utility area. In addition, the master compressor can be conveniently turned on and off using the [MASTER
COMP] button from the control panel.
Master equalizer
The master equalizer adjusts the overall sound of the stage piano just before it is output. On the CP4 STAGE,
the master EQ features five frequency bands; on the CP40 STAGE, it has three. The MASTER EQ sliders
located at the right of the control panel can be used to adjust the gain in each band. Moving a slider away
from you increases the gain in the corresponding frequency band and vice-versa. On both the CP4 STAGE
and the CP40 STAGE, the Low and High bands can be switched between peaking and shelving types.
Master EQ parameters are set on the Master EQ screen (page 46) from the Utility area.
Effect categories, types, and parameters
Details on the categories of effect available on the CP4 STAGE and CP40 STAGE as well as their types and
parameters can be found in the Effect Type List and Effect Parameter List sections of the Data List (pdf). In addition,
these effect categories, types, and parameters are described in detail in the Synthesizer Parameter Manual (pdf).
Preset programs
For each effect type, parameter settings suitable for various different modes of use have been prepared as preset
programs. Instead of configuring effects from scratch, you can save considerable time by selecting the preset
program that best matches the current Voices or style of music and then tweaking to suit your specific needs. Preset
programs can be selected using Preset from effect-parameter editing screens. A full list of presets for each effect
type can be found in the Data List (pdf).

User Memory
User Memory is used to store the Performances that come preset on your stage piano, in addition to Utility
settings, which affect the instrument as a whole. This memory area supports both writing and deleting of
data, and it retains its content when the instrument is turned off.
Edit buffer
The Edit buffer is a work area used to store the Performance that is currently being edited. When the
instrument is turned off, the content of this temporary buffer is lost. In order, therefore, to retain any edits
made to a Performance, it must be stored in User Memory before selecting a different Performance or
turning off the stage piano.
Recall and Compare buffers
The Recall buffer serves as backup memory for the Edit buffer. Edits made to a Performance are normally
lost if not stored before selecting a different Performance; however, the Recall function can be used to
restore the edited Performance to the Edit buffer. Meanwhile, the Compare buffer is used to store the state of
a Performance’s settings prior to their being edited. You can then use the Compare Performance function to
toggle between the edited and unedited versions of the Performance in order to determine which one
sounds better. The content of both the Recall and Compare buffers is lost when the instrument is turned off.
NOTE For more details on the Recall function, refer to the description of the Recall screen (page 26) from the Performance Job area.
NOTE For more details on comparing Performances, refer to the description of the Compare Performance function (page 30).

VelDepth
This parameter can be used to select how the velocities with which keys are
played will affect the velocities actually output to the tone generator for the
current Part. As shown in the graph below, the larger the value set, the
greater the degree to which output velocities vary in response to changes in
the playing velocity (i.e., the steeper the slope of the graph). If a value of 0 is
set, the output velocities will be totally unaffected by different playing
velocities, resulting in an response similar to that of an organ, where playing
strength has practically no effect on the sound produced.

Description
MicroTune
This parameter can be used to select a musical tuning system. In total, your
stage piano can replicate seven different systems. While the equal
temperament tuning system has now become standard for pianos, a wide
number of other systems were developed over the years before it was
adopted, and these systems invariably paved the way for the birth of new
musical styles. By selecting different tuning systems, you can enjoy the
unique harmonics of music from the corresponding periods.
(Microtuning)
Settings: Equal, PureMajor, PureMinor, Pythagorean, Meantone, Werckmeister, and
Kirnberger
Equal (equal temperament)
The range of pitches in each octave is divided equally into twelve parts, with each
half-step evenly spaced in pitch. Today, this is by far the most popular tuning system
for pianos.
Pure Major and Pure Minor
These two tuning systems preserve the pure mathematical intervals of each scale,
especially for triadic chords (comprising the root, third, and fifth). These
characteristics can still be heard today in vocal harmonies — such as choirs and
a cappella singing.
Pythagorean
This scale was devised by the famous Greek philosopher Pythagoras and is created
from a series of perfect fifths, which are collapsed into a single octave. The thirds in
this tuning are slightly unstable, but the fourths and fifths are beautiful and suitable for
some leads.
Meantone
This scale was created as an improvement on the Pythagorean scale by making the
major third interval smoother. It was especially popular from the latter part of the 16th
century to the end of the 18th century, with Handel being one of its most notable users.
Werckmeister and Kirnberger
The Werckmeister and Kirnberger scales improve the meantone and Pythagorean
scales by combining them in different ways. Both are uniquely characterized by the
way in which modulation can change the nuances of musical compositions. Often
used in the eras of Bach and Beethoven, they are still employed today to reproduce
the music of those periods on the harpsichord.
NOTE This parameter cannot be set for Parts with a Drum Voice, and its setting is
displayed as “---” in such a case.
Root
(Microtuning Root)
Certain tuning systems require a root note to be set, and this parameter can
be used to do so for the current Part.

File-related terms
Common Edit Area
A number of terms will be used in the following descriptions of File area functions and operations.
Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with their meanings in order that these functions and
operations can be more easily understood.
01: Chorus Effect
File
03: General
The term “file” is used to define a collection of data stored on a memory medium. Data saved to a
USB flash-memory device by your stage piano or a computer takes the form of files, and this format
is also used when reading data back from a USB flash-memory device. A file is identified by a file
name and an extension, as described below.
File name
On the CP4 STAGE and CP40 STAGE, files can be assigned a name containing up to eight
alphanumeric characters and symbols. These names are used to tell files apart, and for this reason,
no two files within a specific directory can share the same file name. Computers are capable of
handling very long file names that can even include non-English characters, but on your
CP4 STAGE or CP40 STAGE, non-English characters will be replaced with symbols and long names
will be truncated to six or seven characters.

Extension
The three letters following the period at the end of a file name — such as “.mid” and “.wav” — are
referred to as a file extension. The type of data contained within a file is identified by its extension,
and it is not possible to specify or change an extension using the CP4 STAGE or CP40 STAGE.
File size
The amount of memory needed to store a file is indicated by the file size. These sizes as well as the
capacities of memory devices are presented in standard computer format using B (bytes), KB (kilo
bytes), MB (mega bytes), and GB (giga bytes). (1 KB is equivalent to 1,024 bytes; 1 MB is
equivalent to 1,024 KB; and 1 GB is equivalent to 1,024 MB.)
Directory
A hierarchical system of directories is used on USB flash-memory devices in order to group files
together according to type or application. In this regard, directories are equivalent to the folders
used on a computer. As with files, you can assign names to individual directories, but directories do
not have extensions.

Root directory
05: Format
The directory initially displayed when you open a USB flash-memory device on a computer or the
like is referred to as the root directory.
06: Memory Info
Utility Area
Mounted
A USB flash-memory device is said to be mounted when it has been connected to the instrument,
the instrument has identified it, and it is ready for use. Your CP4 STAGE or CP40 STAGE will
automatically mount a USB flash-memory device whenever plugged into the [TO DEVICE] USB
terminal. Incidentally, a device that is no longer mounted is said to be unmounted.
Formatting
The operation of initializing a USB flash-memory device is referred to as formatting. Whenever you
format such a device, all of its files and directories (or folders) will be erased.
Save and load
The term “save” refers to the writing of data to a USB flash-memory device for storage, while “load”
refers to the reading of files from this type of device into the instrument’s internal memory. In
contrast, the term “store” is used to refer to writing of data to the internal memory.

01: Save
The Save function is used to store all data from the instrument’s User Memory in the form of an Alltype file. This file must be saved to the USB flash-memory device’s root directory, and it will be
given a .C7A (CP4 STAGE) or .C8A (CP40 STAGE) file extension.
NOTE Before carrying out the steps described below, ensure that the USB flash-memory device is plugged
into the instrument’s [TO DEVICE] USB terminal. If this is not the case, the instrument will display the
message “USB device not ready” instead of the Save screen.

This parameter can be used to specify whether metronome playback or
tempo-dependent effect parameters should be controlled based on the
stage piano’s internal clock or on external clock messages received from a
DAW application on a connected computer or from a connected MIDI
device.
Settings: int, ext, and auto
int (internal): Synchronization is based on the internal clock. Use this setting when
your stage piano is to be used alone or as the master clock source for other
equipment.
ext (external): Synchronization is based on clock messages received via MIDI. Use
this setting when an external device is to be used as master.
auto: Clock messages received via MIDI will be prioritized over the stage piano’s
current tempo. If no such messages are received, synchronization will be based on
the internal clock set to the last tempo received via MIDI.
NOTE When this parameter is set to “ext”, you will need to configure your DAW

MIDI
Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) is a global standard designed to allow performance, voice, and other data to
be transferred between musical instruments. As such, reliable data communication is assured even between musical
instruments and equipment from different manufacturers. In addition to data generated by playing the keyboard or
selecting a Performance, a wide range of other data types — such as tempo and instrument controls — can also be
exchanged via MIDI. Using the powerful functionality provided by this technology, you can not only play other
instruments using your stage piano’s keyboard and controllers, but you can also change pan and reverb settings for
each Part and adjust effect settings. In fact, practically all of the parameters that can be set using the instrument’s control
panel can also be remotely controlled from another MIDI device.
In this section, data and values will be displayed in binary, decimal, and hexadecimal formats. In order to indicate
hexadecimal values, an “H” is displayed in front of or behind the numeric values. Furthermore, “n” is used to represent an
arbitrary integer (or whole number).
NOTE MIDI transmit and receive channels on the CP4 STAGE
and CP40 STAGE are set as follows for each Part.
MIDI Channels
MIDI data can be transmitted and received on one of
sixteen MIDI channels. Therefore, performance data for
up to sixteen different instrument Parts can be
simultaneously exchanged over a single MIDI cable.
MIDI channels are very similar in nature to TV channels,
in that each TV station transmits its broadcasts over a
specific channel. Your TV, for example, receives many
different programs at the same time from different
broadcasters, and you select which program to watch by
choosing the corresponding channel.
CP4 STAGE:
MAIN Part: Channel 1 is used for both transmission and
reception.
LAYER Part: Channel 2 is used for both transmission and
reception.
SPLIT Part: Channel 3 is used for both transmission and
reception.
CP40 STAGE:
MAIN Part: Channel 1 is used for both transmission and
reception.
SPLIT/LAYER Part: Channel 2 is used for both
transmission and reception.

In much the same way, multiple transmitting devices in a
MIDI system can each be set to send data on a separate
channel (i.e., a MIDI Transmit channel), which link with the
system’s receiving devices via MIDI cables. If a receiving
device’s MIDI channel (i.e., a MIDI Receive channel)
matches a MIDI Transmit channel, the receiving device
will produce sound in response to the data sent by the
corresponding transmitting device.
Broadly speaking, MIDI messages can be divided into
two groups — channel messages and system messages.
A description of each different type of channel message
and system message supported by the CP4 STAGE and
CP40 STAGE is provided below. Further details can be
found in the MIDI Data Format and MIDI Implementation
Chart sections of the Data List pdf.
Channel Messages
MIDI channel messages contain performance-related
information, and each one is sent on a specific MIDI
channel.
MIDI cable
 Note On & Note Off
CP4 STAGE or CP40 STAGE
MIDI keyboard or synthesizer

CP4 STAGE/CP40 STAGE Reference Manual
Note On and Note Off messages are generated when a
keyboard is played. Specifically, a Note On message is
produced when a key is pressed; a Note Off message,
when it is released. Each of these messages contains a
specific note number corresponding to the key that was
pressed, in addition to a velocity value indicating how
hard the key was struck. Receivable MIDI note numbers
range from 0 (C-2) to 127 (G8), with middle C (C3)
represented by 60. Receivable velocity values, which are
contained within Note On messages only, range from 1 to
127.
Appendix > MIDI
 Control Change
Soft Pedal (Control No. 67)
MIDI Control Change messages are used to control
volume, stereo panning, and many other parameters, and
as shown below, each message type has its own unique
control number.
Soft Pedal messages can be used to modify the sound of
notes in the same way as a piano’s Soft pedal. Setting a
value between 64 and 127 turns soft on, reducing the
volume and slightly softening the timbre; meanwhile,
values between 0 and 63 turn it off.
Bank Select MSB (Control No. 0)
Bank Select LSB (Control No. 32)
Release Time (Control No. 72)
Bank Select MSB and LSB messages are used to
remotely select Performances and Part Voices from
another MIDI device. The selection will not, however,
become effective until a Program Change message is
subsequently received.
Release Time messages can be used to adjust the AEG
release time for each Part. Values of 0 to 127 correspond
to offset values of -64 to +63, which are used to reduce or
increase the release time accordingly.
Data Entry MSB (Control No. 6)
Data Entry LSB (Control No. 38)
Decay Time messages can be used to adjust the AEG
decay time for each Part. Values of 0 to 127 correspond
to offset values of -64 to +63, which are used to reduce or
increase the decay time accordingly. The larger the
value, the longer it takes for the sound to decay after the
initial attack.
Data Entry MSB and LSB messages are used to set a
value for the parameter selected using RPN MSB and
RPN LSB messages (see below). The actual value to be
set is determined by combining the MSB and LSB values.
Main Volume (Control No. 7)
Main Volume messages can be used to adjust the volume
of each Part. Setting a value of 127 produces maximum
volume, while 0 silences the Part in question. These
messages can be useful when adjusting the relative
volumes of each Part.
Pan (Control No. 10)
Pan messages can be used to adjust the stereo panning
of each Part. Setting a value of 127 moves the sound fully
to the right, while 0 moves it to the far left and 64 places it
in the middle of the stereo field.
Expression (Control No. 11)
Expression messages can be used to change the level of
expression or intonation of each Part. Setting a value of
127 produces maximum volume, while 0 silences the Part
in question. These messages can be useful when you
wish to adjust the volume to add expression during
performances.
Hold 1 (Control No. 64)
Hold 1 messages can be used to modify the sound of
notes in the same way as a piano’s Sustain (Damper)
pedal. Setting a value between 64 and 127 turns sustain
on (pedal operated), while values between 0 and 63 turn
it off (pedal released). When turned on, notes will sustain
longer than normal after the corresponding Note Off
message is received. The CP4 STAGE and CP40 STAGE
turn sustain fully off only for a Hold 1 value of 0, and
values from 1 to 127 result in increasingly longer sustain
times.
Sostenuto (Control No. 66)
Sostenuto messages can be used to modify the sound of
notes in the same way as a piano’s Sostenuto pedal.
Setting a value between 64 and 127 turns sostenuto on,
while values between 0 and 63 turn it off. If sostenuto is
turned on while the note generated by a specific Note On
message is playing, it will be sustained longer until the
corresponding Note Off message is received.
51
CP4 STAGE/CP40 STAGE Reference Manual
Decay Time (Control No. 75)
Vibrato Rate (Control No. 76)
Vibrato Rate messages can be used to adjust the speed
of each Part’s vibrato effect. Values of 64 leave the Part’s
speed setting unchanged; values larger than 64 produce
faster vibrato speeds and vice-versa.
Vibrato Depth (Control No. 77)
Vibrato Depth messages can be used to adjust the
intensity of each Part’s vibrato effect. Values of 64 leave
the Part’s depth setting unchanged; values larger than 64
produce a more intense vibrato effect and vice-versa.
Vibrato Delay (Control No. 78)
Vibrato Delay messages can be used to adjust how long
after playing a key the onset of vibrato is delayed for
each Part. Values of 64 leave the Part’s delay setting
unchanged; values larger than 64 produce longer delay
times and vice-versa.
Effect 1 Depth (reverb send level)
(Control No. 91)
Effect 1 Depth messages can be used to adjust the
reverb effect’s send level.
Data Increment (Control No. 96)
Data Decrement (Control No. 97)
Data Increment and Data Decrement messages can be
used to increment and decrement pitch bend sensitivity
in steps of 1 (assuming that the parameter has been set
in advance using RPN messages (see below)).
RPN LSB (registered parameter number LSB)
(Control No. 100)
RPN MSB (registered parameter number MSB)
(Control No. 101)
RPN LSB and MSB messages are used primarily to
facilitate the setting of offset values for pitch bend
sensitivity, tuning, and other Part parameters. In specific
terms, the parameter to be modified is first selected
using these messages, and the above-mentioned Data
Increment and Data Decrement messages are then used
to change the parameter setting. It should be noted that,
once an RPN has been set, all subsequent data entry
messages on the same channel will affect the
Appendix > MIDI
corresponding parameter. After setting a parameter
based on these messages, therefore, it is wise to set the
RPN to Null (7FH, 7FH) in order to avoid unexpected
changes.
Your CP4 STAGE or CP40 STAGE supports selection of
the following parameter using RPN LSB and MSB
messages.

 Program Change
MIDI Program Change messages are used to select a
different Performance. When combined with Bank Select
MSB and LSB messages, furthermore, it is possible to
select Performances from any of the instrument’s memory
banks via MIDI. A full list of Performances can be found
in the Data List pdf.
NOTE Program change numbers (0 to 127) are one less than
the corresponding number in the Data List (pdf). To
select program No. 16, for example, you would need to
send a message with program change number 15.

All Sound Off (Control No. 120)
All Sound Off messages are used to silence all sounds
being generated by the instrument’s Parts. MIDI Channel
messages such as Hold 1 and Sostenuto are retained.
Reset All Controllers (Control No. 121)
A Reset All Controllers message is used to return each of
the following controllers to their default values.
Controller

Sostenuto

All Notes Off (Control No. 123)
An All Notes Off message is used to turn off all notes for
each Part. If, however, Hold 1 or Sostenuto is turned on at
this time, notes will continue to play until these controllers
are turned off.
Omni Mode Off (Control No. 124)
Omni Mode Off messages have the same effect as an All
Notes Off message.
Pitch Bend messages are continuous controller
messages that allow the pitch of designated notes to be
raised or lowered by a specified amount over a specified
duration.
System Messages
Rather than being associated with a specific channel,
MIDI system messages are used for synchronization of
devices and other behavior of the instrument as a whole.
 System Exclusive Messages
Used to perform bulk data dumps and to change
parameters, MIDI system exclusive messages contain a
device number, allowing them to operate as if on a
unique MIDI channel. In order for this type of message to
be exchanged between devices, both the sending and
receiving devices must be set to the same device
number. Using system exclusive messages, you can
control practically every parameter on your stage piano
from another MIDI device.
 System Realtime Messages
Active Sensing (FEH)
Active Sensing is a type of MIDI message used to
prevent unexpected results in the event that a MIDI cable
is disconnected or damaged while the instrument is
being played. Upon the receipt of an Active Sensing
message, the stage piano will begin to monitor the status
of connected MIDI cables. If no MIDI data is received
over the next 300 ms, the stage piano will conclude that a
problem has occurred with a MIDI cable, and in
response, it will act as if an All Notes Off message and a
Reset All Controllers message had been received.
Timing Clock (F8H)
Omni Mode On (Control No. 125)
Omni Mode On messages have the same effect as an All
Notes Off message.
52
CP4 STAGE/CP40 STAGE Reference Manual
Timing Clock messages are transmitted at a fixed interval
(i.e., 24 times per 1/4 note) to synchronize connected
MIDI instruments. Use the Sync parameter from the Utility
area’s MIDI screen to specify whether the instrument’s
internal clock or Timing Clock messages received via the
MIDI [IN] terminal should be used for synchronization.
