the selected sounds and rhythms etc. and when setting the functions. Let’s take a look.
• The display illustrations shown in this User’s Manual are examples for the sake of clarification; the actual displays on your
instrument may differ from the illustrations.

TECHNI-CHORD turns your single note melodies into full chords and offers you a choice of different types from a simple duet
which adds one harmony note to your melody note, to big band reeds which adds four harmony notes to your melody note. If
TECHNI-CHORD is part of a ONE TOUCH PLAY or PIANO STYLIST registration, a suitable TECHNI-CHORD type will be selected
automatically.
Example:

You can specify which part is used for the harmony tones.

• The melody you play with your right hand is automatically
played in chords which are based on the chords you play
with your left hand.
• This feature does not work for a part for which SOLO is
set to on.
• This feature is very effective when used with the AUTO
PLAY CHORD.
• If CONDUCTOR is selected, the harmony notes are produced in the sounds of the part which is currently selected
in the CONDUCTOR (RIGHT 1, RIGHT 2). In other words,
the harmony notes are produced in the same sound as
the melody notes. If both RIGHT 1 and RIGHT 2 are on,
the harmony notes are produced in the sound of the
RIGHT 1 part.
• In the case of EASY RECORD (see page 65), when set
to CONDUCTOR or a part other than PART 4, the

Simply by playing a chord on the keyboard, the AUTO PLAY CHORD function automatically plays an accompaniment pattern
which matches perfectly the selected rhythm. With a real accompaniment as a background, you can concentrate on playing the
melody.
How the AUTO PLAY CHORD works
Chord
Melody
When an AUTO PLAY CHORD mode is selected, an automatic accompaniment which matches the rhythm you have
chosen is played in the chord which you specify with your
left hand. The melody is played with your right hand.
• The accompaniment pattern of the AUTO PLAY CHORD
is composed of 8 parts: DRUMS 1, 2, BASS, ACCOMP
1–5.
• The volume of each part can be adjusted with the buttons
below the display. (Refer to page 31.)
How to play chords
There are four different ways to specify chords on the keyboard.
BASIC mode
For beginning players, a left-hand chord can be specified with
just one finger. You can either press one key on the left keyboard section to specify the root note (one-finger), or play
all the notes of the chord (fingered).
• The LEFT button in the CONDUCTOR turns off. You can
turn it on and the LEFT part will be heard, but when the
LEFT HOLD function is OFF, only the <Fingered> method
can be used to specify chords. (Refer to page 49.)
• When the rhythm is on, even if the keys are released, the
accompaniment continues to play in the specified chord
until you specify another chord.

Part II
Playing the rhythm
<One-finger>
Press a key in the left keyboard section to specify the root
note. The major chord corresponding to this root note is automatically played in an accompaniment pattern.
• When three or more keys of a chord are pressed, it is
recognized as a <fingered> chord.
Example: C chord
Minor, seventh and minor seventh chords are also easily produced.

Example: Cm
Example: C7
Example: Cm7
<Fingered>
Playing the rhythm
Specify the chord by playing all the notes in the chord. When
you play chords this way, the AUTO PLAY CHORD recognizes more chord types, and thus the scope of your performance expression is expanded.
• Play chords by pressing at least three keys.
• If the CHORD FINDER procedure is used, you can see the
types of chords that can be specified and the keys you
press to play them. (Refer to page 50.)
ADVANCED 1 mode
In this mode, the chord is specified by playing it (fingered)
on the left part of the keyboard. Chords which the AUTO
PLAY CHORD does not recognize are ignored.
• The keyboard automatically divides into left and right playing sections.
• The sound selected for the left section of the keyboard is
produced, but you can mute this part. (Refer to page 31.)
• Play chords by pressing at least three keys.
• If the CHORD FINDER procedure is used, you can see the
types of chords that can be specified and the keys you
press to play them. (Refer to page 50.)
• When the rhythm is on, even if the keys are released, the
accompaniment continues to play in the specified chord
until you specify another chord.
ADVANCED 2 mode
Chords are specified in the same manner as for <Fingered>
chords in the BASIC mode. However, if the AUTO PLAY
CHORD does not recognize the chord, the automatic accompaniment is based on the pitches of some of the pressed
keys.
48
QQTG0665
PIANIST mode
In the PIANIST mode, the entire keyboard can be used to
specify chords for the automatic accompaniment. This mode
is used to add an automatic accompaniment to the performance on a standard piano.
• The keyboard does not split.
• Chords can be specified (fingered) anywhere on the keyboard.
• Chords are specified in the same manner as for the ADVANCED 1 mode, and the types of chords are also the
same.
<APC HOLD>
During a performance in the PIANIST mode, for example, if
you press the pedal to which the APC HOLD function is assigned, the currently specified chord is maintained, allowing
you to focus your performance on a solo melody.
• The accompaniment continues in the same chord as long
as the pedal is depressed, and it does not change even if
other chords are played.
• To change the pedal assignment, refer to page 121.

• If the BASIC or an ADVANCED mode was selected, the
keyboard automatically splits into right and left sections.
ON BASS
If the ON BASS button is ON, the BASS part is produced in
the key of the lowest note of the played chord, thus making
it possible to play chords such as C on G (excluding <onefinger> chords).
• For example, with the ON BASS button on, if you play a
C chord by pressing the keys G, C and E, the BASS part
is produced in the key of G.
5. Press the START/STOP button to begin the
• When you use FILL IN, INTRO and ENDING, the automatic accompaniment is also used in these patterns.
• You can set the mode which determines how the LEFT
part sounds during an AUTO PLAY CHORD performance.
(Refer to the following section on “LEFT HOLD”.)
• In the initialized condition, when the rhythm is off, if an
AUTO PLAY CHORD mode is on and a chord is specified,
the specified root note (R. BASS part) and chord notes
(CHORD part) are produced. The volumes of these notes
can be adjusted. (Refer to page 31.)

• When BASIC is selected, the LEFT part turns off. The
LEFT part sounds if you turn it on, but <one-finger> chords
cannot be specified.
ON:
Specifying <one-finger> chords in the BASIC mode produces the full chords; otherwise the LEFT part notes are
those of the pressed chord keys.
• When BASIC is selected the LEFT part turns off, but it
will sound if you turn it on.
• Touch response does not function for the LEFT part.
• When the mode is set to ON, during a rhythm performance, the LEFT part continues to play even when the keys
are released.

APC VOLUME
CHORD FINDER
To adjust the volume balance between the automatic accompaniment and the parts you play manually on the keyboard,
the volume of all the automatic accompaniment parts can be
lowered as one.
The CHORD FINDER can help, for example, when you do
not know which keys to press to specify a given chord. When
you input the chord name, the CHORD FINDER shows you
which keys to press and even lets you hear the notes that
make up.

A sequencer records your performance in a similar way to a tape recorder. This instrument’s SEQUENCER allows you to record
up to 10 performances in a variety of ways. You may want to record your entire performance in one go (especially if you are using
AUTO PLAY CHORD to provide the accompaniment), or to build up a complex arrangement with several different parts playing
together, like an orchestral score. This instrument’s SEQUENCER has 16 tracks. This means that you can record 16 different
parts. However, you don’t have to use all 16 tracks. For some uses you may only need to use one or two tracks. This instrument’s
SEQUENCER enables you to edit your recorded performance. Unlike a tape recorder you can change the sound or the tempo
during playback, or correct wrong notes or timing errors.
SEQUENCER features
You can change the tempo without changing the pitch
When you record your performance at a slow tempo and play
it back at a faster tempo, the pitch stays the same.
Consistent sound
Your performance is reproduced by a sound module as it
reads digital data. So, unlike a recorded tape, the sound
never deteriorates no matter how many times you play back
your performance.
Edit your recorded performance
Comprehensive editing functions allow you to modify your
recorded performance. Data can easily be erased, corrected
or copied, providing an especially convenient tool for creating
your original tunes.
Memory capacity
Up to 10 songs can be stored in the SEQUENCER. Expressed
in terms of notes, the total number of notes which can be
stored in all the SEQUENCER songs and tracks is about
40,000. The remaining memory available for recording is
shown on the display as a percentage (MEMORY= %).
• When “Memory full!” appears on the display, no more data
can be stored in the SEQUENCER.
• The recorded contents can be saved on a disk for recall at
a later time. (Refer to page 99.)
SEQUENCER menu
The configuration of the SEQUENCER setting display is as
follows.
1. Press the PROGRAM MENUS button to turn
it on.

About Standard MIDI Files
“Standard MIDI File” (SMF) is a standardized data format
which makes it possible for music data to be exchanged
among different sequencers. Data stored in this format on
sequencers of different models can be played back on this
instrument, and vice versa. Note, however, that Standard
MIDI Files ensure the compatibility of data such as NOTE
data (keyboard performance data), VELOCITY (how hard the
keyboard is played), PROGRAM NUMBER data (voice number data), etc. Because it does not guarantee 100% faithful
reproduction of recorded music which is replete with such
data, it may be necessary for you to adjust the settings to
your satisfaction.
• Only files with the “.MID” extension can be loaded.
• Standard MIDI File FORMAT 1 can be loaded, but not
saved.
• This instrument’s SEQUENCER data can be saved to a
disk in Standard MIDI File (FORMAT 0) and can be used
by other equipment.

SMF with LYRICS
Playback of commercial song disks
DIRECT PLAY lets you enjoy playing commercially sold song
disks directly from a disk. It’s fast because you don’t have

SMF with LYRICS is a format in which character information
that is included with the MIDI data, such as karaoke lyrics,
can be displayed. This instrument supports this format,
making it possible to view the lyrics on the display while a
performance is played back.

Part XII MIDI
What is MIDI?
MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is the international standard for digital communication of electronic musical instrument
data. This means that any equipment which has a MIDI terminal—such as electronic musical instruments and personal computers—can easily exchange digital data with other MIDI equipment without resorting to complicated conversions or connections.
MIDI terminals
(On the rear panel)
IN:
MIDI
The terminal by which this instrument receives data
from other equipment.
OUT:
The terminal that transmits data from this instrument to
other equipment.
THRU:
The terminal that transfers data from the IN terminal
directly.
THRU
OUT

• For these connections, use a commercially available MIDI
cable.

MIDI channels
Many different kinds of performance data are sent using just
one MIDI cable. This is possible because MIDI signals are
sent and received through 16 different “basic channels” (numbered 1 to 16). In order for the exchange of data to take
place, the channels on the transmission side must match the
channels on the receiving side. This characteristic also
makes it possible to link multiple sound generators and to
control each by matching specific channels.

QQTG0665

MIDI sequencer
Part XII
MIDI
The following kinds of data can be transmitted/received.
PROGRAM CHANGE
NOTE NUMBER: Number specifying which key is played.
NOTE ON: Specifies that a key is played.
NOTE OFF: Specifies that a key is released.
VELOCITY: Specifies how hard a key is struck.
• MIDI notes are assigned numbers from 0 to 127, with middle
C (C3) as 60. Note pitches are in semitone increments,
with the higher numbers assigned to the higher pitches.
This is sound change data. When a different sound is selected
on the transmitting instrument, the sound on the receiving
instrument also changes.
CONTROL CHANGE
These are volume, sustain, effect, etc. data used to enhance
performance expression. Each function is distinguished by
its control number, and the function which can be changed
by the control differs depending on the instrument.
EXCLUSIVE data
This is data that is specific to this instrument, and data for
the GENERAL MIDI LEVEL 2 mode setting.
MIDI
NOTE data
This is the most basic kind of MIDI data which is exchanged,
and is used to specify which keys are played and how hard
they are played.

are connected to a computer, depending on the computer
software the received data may be sent back to the instrument
just as it is. Because of this the sound generated from the keys
and the sound generated from the returned data are both
produced, causing undesirable effects, such as the sounds
canceling each other out, for example. In this case, either
change the software settings to prevent received data from
being returned, or set the MIDI LOCAL CONTROL to off.
Noise from a radio or TV can be heard.
• This sometimes occurs when electrical equipment such as a
radio or TV is used near the instrument. Try moving such
electrical equipment further away from the instrument.
• The sound may be coming from a nearby broadcast station or
amateur radio station. If the sound is bothersome, consult your
dealer or service center.

sold “as is”. A purchase receipt or other proof of the original purchase date is required for warranty
service.
