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 and educational 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.
There are two types of Mark III Playback pianos:
• Playback models
• Playback models with Silent system
This manual is designed to cover both models.
All functions and descriptions are common to both models except where marked “for
models with Silent system playback.”
Trademarks & Copyright
Yamaha, Disklavier, Silent, PianoSoft, and PianoSoft.Plus, are trademarks of Yamaha Corporation.
Unauthorized copying of PianoSoft or PianoSoft.Plus disks is prohibited.
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.

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 21.
Disk
Ensemble Song
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 16 Mbytes of
internal flash memory named Memory Disks that
allow you to store song data without a floppy
disk.
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.
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.
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
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
right-hand 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.
English
“Disk” is used as a generic term to refer to both
floppy disks and internal Memory Disks.
included are classical, jazz, and popular. The disk
includes songs for listening enjoyment, piano
study disks for the piano student, and
accompaniment disks for vocal and instrumental
practice.
PianoSoft is sometimes used as a generic term for
PianoSoft and PianoSoft.Plus.

Basic Playback
The Disklavier plays the piano parts, actually moving the keys up and down as if they were being played
by a performer. When song data contains Ensemble parts in addition to piano parts, those parts are played
by the internal XG tone generator and output from the built-in speakers.
Follow the procedure below to play back a song. If you are using the Disklavier for the first time, you
can use the enclosed sample floppy disk or Memory Disk 0 as they contain a short sample song.
Playing Back a Song
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).
1
Press [DRIVE] and specify the disk
for playback.
The title of the disk scrolls across the
display, and the number and title of the first
song appear.
When you specify a Memory Disk, the disk
number or letter also flashes in the bottom
row of the display.
Note: “x” indicates Memory Disks that are
unformatted or contain no songs.
DRIVE
Flashes
Each press of the [DRIVE] button toggles
the floppy disk and Memory Disks (0 to 9
and A to F).
Note: When you insert a floppy disk into the
floppy disk drive, the letters “Fd”
automatically appear on the left side of
the display.
Note: “Fd” appears only when a floppy disk
is inserted in the disk drive.
Pressing [STOP] will stop the disk title
scrolling and display the number and title
of the first song.
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.

When playing back PianoSoft.Plus or Ensemble
songs, it is useful to be able to balance the volume
levels of the piano and Ensemble parts. In other
words, the volume of the XG tone generator
should not be too loud or too quiet compared to
the piano played by the Disklavier.
Adjust the level so that the Ensemble
voices played by the internal XG tone
generator are balanced with the volume of
the Disklavier piano.
Changing the Tempo
Transposing a Song
You can speed up or slow down the playback
tempo. Slowing down the playback tempo can be
useful when practicing a difficult piano part.
Playback can be transposed up or down by up to
two octaves. This is useful, for example, when
you want to sing along (karaoke) in a different
key from the original recording.

Silent System Playback
(for models with Silent system playback)
Note: You cannot play the keyboard when the Silent system is engaged.
What is the Silent
System?
Quiet Mode and Silent
Mode
The Disklavier incorporates Yamaha’s innovative
Silent system, in which a push of the [SILENT]
button keeps the hammers from striking the
strings, effectively silencing the acoustic piano.
Sound information is sent to the digital piano tone
generator, and output through the built-in speakers
or stereo headphones.
There are two modes to the Silent system: Quiet
mode and Silent mode. You can select either
mode to suit your surroundings.
With this Silent feature, the Disklavier offers
additional convenience for enjoying your
Disklavier.
Quiet Mode
In Quiet mode, the sounds of the digital piano and
Ensemble parts are output through the built-in
speakers. By adjusting the volume, you can listen
to songs at a lower volume than is possible with
the acoustic piano.
Silent Mode
In Silent mode, sound is output through optional
stereo headphones. Using headphones allows you
to listen to songs privately without disturbing
others at any time, day or night.
23
Chapter 7: Silent System Playback
When you engage the Silent system, the acoustic piano is silenced and the piano parts are played by the
digital piano tone generator. This enables you to adjust the volume of not only the accompanying sounds
but of the piano as well so that you can listen to playback at a lower volume through the built-in speakers
or silently through optional stereo headphones.
English
When you play back songs in normal mode, the acoustic piano plays the piano parts, providing live piano
performance, and the accompanying sounds are output from the built-in speakers.
Engaging the Silent
System
Adjusting the Volume
Engaging the Silent system is very simple. Follow

could be adjusted only down to the softest level
that the acoustic piano can play.
In Silent or Quiet mode, you can adjust the
playback volume of the digital piano as desired, to
a level softer than what is possible on the acoustic
piano.
Playback volume is adjusted using the VOLUME
knob on the Silent Control Box. The standard
volume level is roughly the three o’clock position.
At this setting, the volume level of the digital
piano is approximately the same as what the
acoustic piano would be in normal mode.
Turn the knob clockwise to increase and
