Welcome to the Yamaha Disklavier !
Thank you for purchasing the Yamaha Disklavier piano!
The Disklavier is a fascinating instrument that integrates a classic Yamaha acoustic piano
with innovative electronics to suit your entertainment, educational, and creative needs, while
retaining the tone, touch and long-term value that have long made Yamaha pianos the
world’s finest.
Before using your Disklavier piano, please read this manual thoroughly and retain it for
future reference.
Trademarks & Copyright
Yamaha, Disklavier, Silent, PianoSoft, PianoSoft.Plus, PianoSoft.PlusAudio, PianoSmart, and Smart PianoSoft
are trademarks of Yamaha Corporation.
SmartKey, CueTIME, Disk Orchestra and You Are The Artist are trademarks of Yamaha Corporation or Yamaha
Corporation of America.
Important
Read the following before operating the Disklavier.
Cautions
• Do not locate the Disklavier in a place subject
to excessive heat, low temperatures, or direct
sunlight. This could be a fire hazard and may
damage the finish and internal parts.
• Turn off all audio devices when connecting to
the Disklavier. Refer to the user’s guide for
each device. Use the correct cables and
connect as specified.
• Excessive humidity or dust can lead to fire or
electric shock.
• Set the volume level on all the devices to
minimum before applying power.
• Connect the plug on the Disklavier power
cable to a compatible AC outlet. Failure to do
so will present a fire and electric shock hazard.
If the power cable plug is not compatible with
your AC outlet, consult your dealer.
• Do not play the Disklavier at a high volume
for extended periods; you may damage your
hearing. This is especially important when
using headphones. If you think your hearing
ability is impaired, consult your doctor.
• Do not plug several devices into the same AC
outlet. This can overload the AC outlet, and
lead to fire and electric shock hazard. It may
also affect the performance of some devices.
• If the Disklavier is worked extremely hard —
that is, prolonged playback of very “busy”
songs — the Disklavier’s thermal relay may
trip. The thermal relay will automatically reset
when the Disklavier has cooled down.
• Do not place heavy objects on the power cable.
A damaged power cable is a potential fire and
electric shock hazard. If the power cable runs
under a carpet, make sure heavy objects,
including the Disklavier, are not placed on top
of the cable.
• If you notice any abnormality — such as
smoke, odor, or noise — turn off the
Disklavier immediately, and remove the power
plug from the AC outlet. Consult your dealer
for repair.
• If the power cable is damaged (i.e. cut or a
bare wire is exposed), ask your dealer for a
replacement. Using the Disklavier in this
condition is a fire and shock hazard.
• If a foreign object or water gets inside the
Disklavier turn it off immediately, and remove
the power plug from the AC outlet. Consult
your dealer.
• When disconnecting the power cable from an
AC outlet, always pull from the plug. Never
pull the cable. Damaging the cable in this way
is a potential fire and electric shock hazard.
• If you plan not to use the Disklavier for a long
period of time (such as when you are on
vacation), disconnect the electrical mains.
• The cover of the unit should be removed only
by qualified service technicians.
• Do not place liquid containers such as vases,
potted plants, glasses, cosmetic bottles,
medicines, etc., on top of the Disklavier.
• Do not try to modify the Disklavier, as this
could lead to fire or electric shock hazard.
• When moving the Disklavier to another
location, turn off the power, remove the power
plug from the AC outlet, and remove all cables
connected to external devices.
English
Warnings
• Always remove the power plug from the AC
outlet before cleaning the Disklavier. Leaving
the power plug connected presents a risk of
electric shock.
• Do not use benzene, thinner, cleaning
detergent, or a chemical cloth to clean the
Disklavier.
• Do not place metal objects with rubber feet on
top of the Disklavier. The color and finish of
the Disklavier can be damaged.
• Do not place heavy objects on the Disklavier.
Doing so can damage the Disklavier.
i
• Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the Disklavier.
However, if you discover a stain, carefully use
a soft damp cloth to remove it.
Interference
• The Disklavier uses high-frequency digital
circuits that may cause interference to radios
and TVs placed close to it. If interference does
occur, relocate the affected equipment.
Handling Batteries
The remote control of this unit is powered by dry
batteries. Improper use or misuse of the dry
batteries can cause the dry batteries to heat up,
leak electrolyte or burst which in turn may result
in a fire, damage to equipment and/or nearby
objects or in burns, injury or other bodily harm.
Read through and familiarize yourself with the
following safety precautions prior to use to ensure
correct usage.
• Do not directly touch the chemicals
(electrolyte) which have leaked from dry
batteries.
1. If electrolyte from dry batteries has made
contact with your eyes, rinse your eyes
thoroughly with clean water and seek
medical treatment from a physician
immediately.
2. If electrolyte from dry batteries has touched
your skin or clothing, rinse it off
immediately with clean water.
3. If electrolyte from dry batteries has found
its way inside your mouth, gargle
immediately and consult a physician.
• Do not install the dry batteries with the “+”
and “–” poles reversed. Misaligning the poles
of dry batteries can lead the dry batteries to be
charged or shorted or it can cause them to heat
up, leak electrolyte or burst which in turn may
result in a fire, damage to nearby objects or in
burns, injury or other bodily harm.
• Use only the designated batteries. Do not use
used batteries with unused batteries or
different types of batteries together. This can
cause them to heat up, leak electrolyte or burst
which in turn may result in a fire or in burns,
injury or other bodily harm. Replace all the dry
batteries at the same time. Do not use new and
old dry batteries together. Do not use different
types of batteries (alkaline and manganese
batteries, batteries made by different
manufacturers or different battery products
made by the same manufacturer) together: this
can cause them to heat up, ingite or leak
electrolyte.
• When the battery-powered unit is not going to
be used for a prolonged period of time, remove
the dry batteries from the unit. Otherwise the
batteries will run down and their electrolyte
may leak, resulting in damage to the unit.
• Remove spent batteries immediately from
equipment. Otherwise, batteries will
overdischarge, causing them to heat up, leak
electrolyte or burst which in turn may result in
damage to nearby objects or in burns, injury or
other bodily harm.
• Dispose of batteries in accordance with the
applicable regulations and ordinances.
Please keep this manual for future reference.

Connecting the Power
Cable
Connect the Disklavier’s power cable to an AC
wall outlet.
Important: Make sure that the voltage of the AC
wall outlet matches that marked on the
Disklavier’s Serial No. plate.
Using the Remote
Control
The Disklavier is equipped with a remote control
which allows convenient control from almost
anywhere in the room. This chapter provides
notes on handling the remote control.

Basic Disklavier Terminology
The following is a list of several basic Disklavier words that you may need to know before proceeding
with operational procedures in this manual. For additional Disklavier terminology, see the glossary
provided in Chapter 15 in the Advanced Operation Manual.
Disk
piano student, and accompaniment disks for vocal
and instrumental practice.
PianoSoft is sometimes used as a generic term for
PianoSoft and PianoSoft.Plus.
English
“Disk” is used as a generic term to refer to floppy
disks, internal Memory Disks, and CDs.
Ensemble Song
PianoSoft.Plus disks contain prerecorded Ensemble
songs featuring instrumental accompaniment that
can be played back on the Disklavier.
See your Disklavier dealer for a PianoSoft catalog.
Floppy Disk
The magnetic storage medium that the Disklavier
uses for song playback. The Disklavier uses 3.5
inch 2DD and 2HD floppy disks.
PianoSoft and PianoSoft.Plus are song disks
specially for use with the Disklavier Series.
L/R Song
In a L/R song, the left-hand piano part is stored on
track 1 (L) and the right-hand piano part is stored on
track 2 (R). During playback you can cancel either
part, and practice that part yourself. When recording
an L/R song, you can record the two parts
simultaneously or separately.
Memory Disk
The Disklavier has a total of 64 megabytes of
internal flash memory named Memory Disks that
allow you to store song data without a floppy disk.
MIDI
An acronym for Musical Instrument Digital
Interface. MIDI allows electronic musical
instruments to communicate with each other.
The PianoSoft Disk Collection is a library of
prerecorded song disks made by Yamaha for use
with the Disklavier Series. Many titles are available,
and among the many musical styles included are
classical, jazz, and popular. The disk includes songs
for listening enjoyment, piano study disks for the
CD software made by Yamaha containing audio and
MIDI signals for playing back on the Disklavier.
Software made by Yamaha containing MIDI signals
for playing back along with standard audio CDs.
Song
A “song” usually means a short piece of music with
lyrics. However, in the Disklavier manuals the term
“song” is used to refer to any piece of music.
Tone Generator
An electronic device that generates instrument
voices. The Disklavier has an internal XG tone
generator that can produce nearly 700 instrumental
and percussion voices.
Voice
The sounds produced by a tone generator
expressing various instruments.
Yamaha XG is an extension of the GM (General
MIDI) format. With greater polyphony, more voice,
and effects, it improves song compatibility between
MIDI devices. When a song in the Yamaha XG
format is played on another XG compatible tone
generator or synthesizer, it will play and sound as
the original composer/creator intended.
3
Chapter 1: Setting Up Your Disklavier
An Ensemble song contains the same left and righthand parts as an L/R song, and extra tracks that are
played by the internal XG tone generator.
Accompanying tracks can include acoustic bass,
drums, strings, vibes, etc.

Disks Used with the Disklavier
English
Three types of disks are used with the Disklavier: floppy disks, CDs, and internal Memory Disks.
Accidental Erasure Protection
Besides PianoSoft and PianoSoft.Plus song disks,
the Disklavier can play back songs stored on 3.5inch MS-DOS 720 kilobytes format 2DD floppy
disks and MS-DOS 1.44 megabytes format 2HD
floppy disks.
Floppy disks have an erasure protection tab which
can be set so that the Disklavier cannot record
new data onto the disk. This is useful for
protecting valuable song data against accidental
erasure and disk formatting. The protection tab is
located on the reverse side of the disk in the
bottom right-hand corner.
Handling Floppy Disks
Protected
Be careful of the following when handling floppy
disks.
• Do not touch the surface of a disk.
• Do not store or place disks near a television,
radio, loudspeaker, or any other device that
generates a magnetic field.
• Do not expose disks to extreme temperature or
humidity. The working temperature range for
disks is between 4˚C and 52˚C (40˚F to
125˚F).
When the tab window is open,
data is protected.
Unprotected
• Do not use disks in a dusty, dirty or smoky
environment.
• Remove the disk before you turn off the
Disklavier.
When the tab window is closed,
data is not protected.

series CDs may not available in some countries.
Playing Back a Floppy
Disk or a Memory Disk
When you play back a song on floppy disks or
Memory Disks, the Disklavier plays the piano
parts, actually moving the keys up and down as if
they were being played by a performer. For songs
containing Ensemble parts in addition to piano
parts, those parts are played by the internal XG
tone generator and output from the built-in
speakers.

Yamaha PianoSoft.PlusAudioTM
and Other Audio/MIDI CDs
PianoSoft.PlusAudio (and audio/MIDI CDs of
other companies) contain data recorded in two
channels: Analog MIDI and audio.
When you play back a PianoSoft.PlusAudio, the
Disklavier plays the piano parts which are
recorded on the MIDI channel, and all other
instrumental and vocal sounds recorded on the
audio channel are output from the built-in
speakers. The Disklavier will faithfully
reproduce the audio sounds of the CD as a stereo
system would, but with the additional feature of a
live piano performance.

Specifying a Disk
When you want to play back songs, you need to
first specify which disk you want to play back, as
the Disklavier has a total of 17 disks (1 floppy
disk and 16 Memory Disks).
Press the [SELECT] buttons and
specify a disk for playback.
SELECT
Each press of the [SELECT] button toggles
the floppy disk, CD, and Memory Disks (0
to 9 and A to F) in the DRIVE indicator.
Note: “x” indicates Memory Disks that are
unformatted or contain no songs.

Note: The disk drive may occasionally
produce a sound when the disk begins
to spin. This is the normal sound of the
disk drive starting to read or write to
the disk; it does not indicate that there
is anything wrong with the disk or disk
drive.
Note: When you insert a floppy disk or CD
into their respective drives, the letters
“Fd” and “Cd” automatically appear on
the left side of the display.
Note: “Fd” and “Cd” appear only when a
floppy disk or CD is inserted in their
respective drives.
For floppy disks, the title of the disk
scrolls across the display, then the number
and title of the first song appear.
Pressing [STOP] will stop the disk title

Adjusting the Volume
You can adjust volume with the Control Unit or
with the remote control as described below. Since
all piano songs are recorded at the maximum
volume level of 0, volume can be decreased down
to –10, the softest volume at which the piano can
play.
Note: When the volume is set to -10, there may be a
slight delay in sound production following key
strokes, and the Disklavier may skip some
notes. Furthermore, at this volume setting,
touch strength does not affect note dynamics.

For Ensemble songs, the volume of the piano and
internal XG tone generator are adjusted
simultaneously, so it is a good idea to first balance
the volume of the piano and XG tone generator.

Using the SmartKeyTM Feature
Note: SmartKey, CueTIME, Disk Orchestra and You Are The Artist are trademarks of Yamaha Corporation or
Yamaha Corporation of America.
SmartKeyTM Software
Special SmartKey software disks use all the
“SmartKey” features to create an exciting way in
which non-players can learn to play simple
melodies, one note at a time, without the need for
written music. SmartKey software does this by
partially depressing the piano key to signal which
note should be played. The Disklavier then waits
for you to press this key before it continues to the
next note in the melody. (If you miss the
movement of the key, the Disklavier will repeat
the movement until you press the key.) When you
press the correct key, the Disklavier will reward
you with ear tickling phrases, incredible
harmonies, and lush arpeggios to give you the
aural and visual image of a complete high-quality
performance. In short, it SHOWS you which key
to play, WAITS for you to play that key before it
continues, and REWARDS you with music. It’s
like having an eternally patient music teacher
showing your fingers which notes to play.
Using a SmartKey Disk
SmartKey software uses three special functions
that together make up SmartKey technology.
Specifically, this software turns on the “Guide”,
“Key Prompt” and “Prompt Repeat” functions
automatically, making the use of this software
very easy.
Playing a song from the built-in
SmartKey demo piece
The Memory Disk on your Disklavier includes
two pieces, one entitled “OPENING,” and the
other entitled “SmartKey Demo.” The demo is
actually an abbreviated sample of a song entitled
“Aura Lee.”
Note: If the SmartKey demo is NOT on your
Memory Disk, you can reset your Disklavier
to recall this piece. See Chapter 12 “Resetting
Your Disklavier” in the Advanced Operation
Manual for more information.

The SmartKey feature of your Disklavier is a unique application of Yamaha’s patented “Guide” system
technology. Used in conjunction with special SmartKeyTM software, the SmartKey functions can be used
to teach non-players simple melodies without written music. Alternatively, more advanced players can
make use of SmartKey compatible CueTIMETM disks that offer prerecorded music that allows them to
perform at any tempo they like. In addition, SmartKey can also be used to expand the capabilities of Disk
OrchestraTM Collection and You Are The ArtistTM software.

the Disklavier, with the SmartKey feature and
CueTIME software, the disk follows you!

English
SmartKey compatible CueTIME software also
uses the SmartKey features of your Disklavier.
CueTIME software consists of a disk and a music
book, that contain beautifully arranged piano
pieces and fully orchestrated background
accompaniments on disk. Simply play the
traditional piano piece as written at any speed or
tempo on the piano keyboard and the
accompanying prerecorded accompaniment on
disk will follow you, allowing complete tempo
expression. If you miss a “cue note,” the
Disklavier gently reminds you which note was the
“cue” by way of a gentle, silent, repeating key
prompt. Alternatively, the key prompt repeat can
be turned off altogether (see below), since cues
are always shown discreetly in the display. With
CueTIME software, it’s like conducting a virtual
orchestra with your fingertips.

feature, the Disklavier pauses playback of the
accompaniment until you play the same notes that
have been recorded on the guide track. Either the
“R” track (right-hand) or the “L” track (left-hand)
can be guided, either individually or
