[LLL EEC EEE EEE
This unit, either alone or in combination with an S
amplifier and headphones or speakers, may be capable
of producing sound levels that could cause permanent
hearing loss. Do not operate for a long period of time
at a high volume level, or at a level that is uncomfort-
able. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in
the ears, you should immediately stop using the unit,
and consult an audiologist.
In households with small children, an adult should
provide supervision until the child is capable of fol-
lowing all the rules essential for the safe operation of
the unit.

BEREAN IIR NEA PEN
...
Do not force the unit's power-supply cord to share an SQ
outlet with an unreasonable number of other devices.
Be especially careful when using extension cords-the
total power used by all devices you have connected to
the extension cord's outlet must never exceed the
power rating (watts/amperes) for the extension cord.
Excessive loads can cause the insulation on the cord to
heat up and eventually melt through.

* Be careful when opening/closing the lid so you do
not get your fingers pinched (p. 16). Adult supervi-
sion is recommended whenever small children use
the unit.
and observe the following:
Power Supply
* Do not use this unit on the same power circuit with any device that will
generate line noise (such as an electric motor or variable lighting system).
e Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off the power to all
units. This will help prevent malfunctions and/or damage to speak-
ers or other devices.
Placement
* Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other equipment containing
large power transformers) may induce hum. To alleviate the prob-
lem, change the orientation of this unit; or move it farther away from
the source of interference.
* This device may interfere with radio and television reception. Do not
use this device in the vicinity of such receivers.
* Observe the following when using the unit's floppy disk drive. For
further details, refer to “Before Using Floppy Disks”.
*Do not place the unit near devices that produce a strong magnetic
field (e.g., loudspeakers).
* Install the unit on a solid, level surface.
« Do not move the unit or subject it to vibration while the drive is operating,
* Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it near devices that
radiate heat, leave it inside an enclosed vehicle, or otherwise subject
it to temperature extremes. Excessive heat can deform or discolor the
unit,
* To avoid possible breakdown, do not use the unit in a wet area, such
as an area exposed to rain or other moisture.
Maintenance
* For everyday cleaning wipe the unit with a soft, dry cloth or one that
has been slightly dampened with water. To remove stubborn dirt,
use a cloth impregnated with a mild, non-abrasive detergent.
Afterwards, be sure to wipe the unit thoroughly with a soft, dry
cloth.
* Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any kind, to avoid
the possibility of discoloration and/or deformation.
Additional Precautions
* Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents of data
that was stored on a floppy disk once it has been lost. Roland
Corporation assumes no liability concerning such loss of data.
e Use a reasonable amount of care when using the unit's buttons, slid-
ers, or other controls; and when using its jacks and connectors.
Rough handling can lead to malfunctions.
* Never strike or apply strong pressure to the display.
* A small amount of noise may be heard from the display during nor-
mal operation.
* When connecting / disconnecting all cables, grasp the connector
itself-—never pull on the cable. This way you will avoid causing
shorts, or damage to the cable's internal elements.
* A small amount of heat will radiate from the unit during normal operation.
* To avoid disturbing your neighbors, try to keep the unit's volume at rea-
sonable levels. You may prefer to use headphones, so you do not need to
be concerned about those around you (especially when it is late at night).
* When you need to transport the unit, package it in the box (including
padding) that it came in, if possible. Otherwise, you will need to use
equivalent packaging materials.
* Do not pull the music stand too far forward when setting/releasing
its latches.
* Do not allow objects to remain on top of the keyboard. This can be
the cause of malfunction, such as keys ceasing to produce sound.
e Use a cable from Roland to make the connection. If using some other
make of connection cable, please note the following precautions.
*Some connection cables contain resistors. Do not use cables that incorpo-
rate resistors for connecting to this unit. The use of such cables can cause
the sound level to be extremely low, or impossible to hear. For informa-
tion on cable specifications, contact the manufacturer of the cable.
ь ui Notes a В
In addition to the items listed under “IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS” and “USING THE UNIT SAFELY” on pages 2 and 3, please read
Before Using Floppy Disks
Handling the Floppy Disk Drive
Install the unit on a solid, level surface in an area free from vibration.
* Avoid using the unit immediately after it has been moved to a loca-
tion with a level of humidity that is greatly different than its former
location. Rapid changes in the environment can cause condensation
to form inside the drive, which will adversely affect the operation of
the drive and/or damage floppy disks. When the unit has been
moved, allow it to become accustomed to the new environment
(allow a few hours) before operating it.
* To insert a disk, push it gently but firmly into the drive—it will click
into place. To remove a disk, press the EJECT button firmly. Do not
use excessive force to remove a disk which is lodged in the drive.
* Never eject a disk while reading or writing is in progress, since that
can damage the magnetic surface of the disk, rendering it unusable.
(The disk drive's indicator will light up at full brightness when the
drive is busy reading or writing data. Ordinarily, the indicator wili be
less brightly lighted, or be extinguished.)
e Remove any disk from the drive before powering up or down.
* To prevent damage to the disk drive's heads, always try to hold the
floppy disk in a level position (not tilted in any direction) while
inserting it into the drive. Push it in firmly, but gently. Never use
excessive force.
* To avoid the risk of malfunction and/or damage, insert only floppy
disks into the disk drive. Never insert any other type of disk. Avoid
getting paper clips, coins, or any other foreign objects inside the drive.
Handling Floppy Disks
* Floppy disks contain a plastic disk with a thin coating of magnetic stor-
age medium. Microscopic precision is required to enable storage of
large amounts of data on such a small surface area. To preserve their
integrity, please observe the following when handling floppy disks:
* Never touch the magnetic medium inside the disk.
* Do not use or store floppy disks in dirty or dusty areas.
* Do not subject floppy disks to temperature extremes (e.g., direct
sunlight in an enclosed vehicle). Recommended temperature range:
10 to 50° C (50 to 122° F).
* Do not expose floppy disks to strong magnetic fields, such as those
generated by loudspeakers.
Floppy disks have a “write protect” tab which can protect the disk
from accidental erasure. It is recommended that the tab be kept in the
PROTECT position, and moved to the WRITE position only when
you wish to write new data onto the disk.
Rear side of the disk
rite
(can write new data onto disk)
Write Protect Tab Protect
(prevents writing to disk)
The identification label should be firmly affixed to the disk. Shouid
the label come loose while the disk is in the drive, it may be difficult
to remove the disk,
Store all disks in a safe place to avoid damaging them, and to protect
them from dust, dirt, and other hazards. By using a dirty or dust-rid-
den disk, you risk damaging the disk, as well as causing the disk
drive to malfunction.
* Disks containing performance data for this unit should always be
locked (have their write protect tab slid to the “Protect” position)
before you insert them into the drive on some other unit (except the
PR-300, or a product in the HP-G, MT, KR, or Atelier families), or into
a computer’s drive. Otherwise (if the write protect tab remains in the
“Write” position), when you perform any disk operations using the
other device's disk drive (such as checking the contents of the disk, or
loading data), you risk rendering the disk unreadable by this unit's
disk drive.

E Inserting and Ejecting a Floppy Disk
NOTE If you're using the disk drive for the first time, be sure to read the important notes on page 4.

E Before Using a Floppy Disk
The floppy disks that you use to save data on need to be formatted (initialized) first.
Formatting a floppy disk erases all information stored on the disk, and puts itin a for-
mat that is acceptable for the device in which it will be used. If a floppy disk is in a for-
mat that doesn’t match the format of this unit, you won't be able to use that floppy
disk.
Formatting a disk destroys all data previously stored on the disk. If you're formatting a used
floppy disk for reuse, be sure to check first to make sure the disk doesn’t contain any data you
don’t want to lose.
If you're using the disk drive for the first time, be sure to read the important notes on page 4.

E Saving Your Songs on Floppy Disk
38
A recorded performance disappears when the power is switched off. It's a good idea
to store important songs on floppy disk.
The process of storing data such as recorded performances on floppy disk is called
“saving.”
If you're using the disk drive for the first time, be sure to read the important notes on page 4.
Some commercially available music file disks may contain songs that cannot be saved.
When using a brand-new floppy disk on the KR-277, first you have to format it using the KR-
277. Take a look at “Before Using a Floppy Disk” (page 36).
If not handled with care, a floppy disk can get cracked, or the data on it can get corrupted, nuik-
ing playback impossible. We recommend saving your tunes on two different floppy disks. By
putting away for safekeeping an additional copy of a floppy disk on which your tunes are saved,
you can feel safer.

A tune saved on a floppy disk can be crased at a later time. Take a look at “Erasing a Saved
Song or User Style” (page 108).
It's a good idea to get into the habit of moving the write-protect tab on the floppy disk
to the “PROTECT” position when you've finished saving your data.
Keeping the tab at “PROTECT” prevents operations that could make the floppy disk
unusable, or could erase your songs by mistake.
Inserting a floppy disk containing saved songs into the disk drive on another device
(such as a computer) while the floppy's write-protect tab is placed at “WRITE” may
make it impossible to play back the songs on the KR-277 afterward (page 4).

Basic Functions
HB Other Methods of Transposition
Method 1
1. Hold down the [Transpose] button and use the Value [+] and [-] but-
tons to choose a transposition value.
Each press of the [+] or [-] button transposes the key a half-step.
The setting range is from -6 to 0 to +5.
When at “0,” the [Transpose] button doesn't light up.
In this example, we'll consider the C note in the key of C major to be the basic note.
From the C note to the note that corresponds to E in the key of E major there are four
keys on the keyboard, counting the black ones, so set the value at “+4.”

Only the Rhythm Part of the selected Music Style is played.
What's a Music Style?
There are many different varieties of music around the world, and each one has its
own unique features. What gives jazz its “jazziness” and classical music its unmistak-
able classical feel is the combination of elements such as the instruments used,
melody, and phrasing, which interact to create the musical ambience of the genre. A
Music Style makes use of these elements to bring out the distinctive atmosphere and
mood of each musical genre.
The Makeup of a Music Style
A Music Style is made up of a set of six performance states called “Divisions.”
The KR-277 automatically plays these Divisions in combination as an accompaniment.
This is called the “Arranger function.”
Division Description
Intro This is the state when an intro is playing.
Original This is the state where an Original accompaniment pattern is played.
Variation This is the state where a Variation accompaniment pattern is played.
Fill In to Original This is the state where a Variation fill-in is played. ~~
Fill In to Variation This is the state where an Original fill-in is played.
Ending This is the state where an ending is played.
What's more, a music style is further broken down into five Performance Parts.

Automatic Accompaniment
Playing with Automatic Accompaniment Without Splitting the Keyboard
Usually, with an Automatic Accompaniment performance, the accompaniment is
sounded by the chords you specify in the Lower section of the keyboard, with the
melody played on the Upper section. If you like, however, you can make the KR-277
recognize chords from the entire keyboard, and perform without splitting the key-
board. This function is called the “Piano Style Arranger.”
This makes it possible to add an accompaniment automatically as you play a tune by
fingering chords in the ordinary way, without giving any thought to the location of a
keyboard split.
If you use this method to perform with Automatic Accompaniment, you can’t use the Chord
Intelligence function (page 61). You have to play all keys of the chords.
Press the One Touch Program [Arranger] button.
Press the [Whole] button.

Playing Chords with Simple Fingering
“Chord Intelligence” is a feature that intelligently decides on accompaniment chords
the moment you play a key specifying a chord during Automatic Accompaniment.
To play a C chord, for example, you usually have to finger the three keys C, E, and G;
but with Chord Intelligence, you only have to press the C key to initiate a C chord
accompaniment.
For more information about which chord gets played when you finger the keys, see the “Chord
MIOPII Pi › 132
Fingering List” (page 132).
Fingering a key in the Lower section of the keyboard while the [Sync] button's indicator 15 dark
causes a chord to be sounded. This note is called the “chord tone,” and the root tone of the chord
that is played at the same time is called the “bass tone.”
В В
You can change Hie sound of the chord tone and bass tone. Take a look at “Changing the Chord
Tone and Bass Tone” (page 119).
When the One Touch Program [Arranger] button has been pressed, the Chord Intelligence
MEMO function is always activated. To cancel the Chord Intelligence function, see “Changing the
Settings for Automatic Accompaniment” (page 118).

Playing Along with a Song
With commercially available music files for piano lessons, the parts for each hand can

separately. For example, you could try to follow along lightly with your right hand
while you listen to that same right-hand part be played; or you could practice the left-
hand part while the right-hand part is being played.
For instance, music files for piano lessons may be assigned to the five Track buttons as

KR-277's Recording Functions
The KR-277's built-in 16-track sequencer allows you to record multitrack music, mak-
ing it easy to create orchestral ensembles.
Wide Variety of Recording Methods
Usually, when you record something new, you record over an older recording, erasing
it. However, you can choose any of the recording methods described below.
- Mix Recording (page 77)
New notes are recorded as a new layer on top of sounds recorded earlier.
- Loop Recording (page 71, 78)
A specified passage is recorded repeatedly, with new notes being combined with
existing ones.
- Punch-in Recording (page 79)
Only a specified passage is re-recorded as you listen to a recorded performance.
What's the 16-track Sequencer?
The 16-track sequencer is a device that lets you simultaneously record or play back 16
individual Parts. For instance, you can create a composition by recording the melody
on the first Part, then going back and recording the bass part on the second Part, then
recording the next part on the third Part, and on and on until you've finished the song.
The Parts of the 16-track sequencer are arranged in five groups on Track buttons (page
30). The 16 Parts of the 16-track sequencer correspond to the five Track buttons as
shown below.

Recording an Ensemble Tune—16-track Sequencer
In this section, we'll take a look at the basic steps for creating ensemble songs using
the 16-track sequencer. This procedure is fairly basic. Use the functions of the KR-277
in combination to create and work with your own compositions.
With the 16-track sequencer, a performance using one type of Tone is recorded on a single
track. This means that you can’t record while Layer Play (page 45) or Split (page 48) is in
effect.
Creating an Ensemble Tune
When you create an ensemble composition, you start by deciding on the basic concept
of the song, such as which tones are played with which parts. Then you record each
part in sequence, using the tones that you've decided on for the individual parts: the
rhythm part, the bass part, the chord part, the melody part, and so on.

E Recording a Drum Part
First off, let's record the rhythm part. Here we will use "Loop Recording” to record the
rhythm part.
Tip
You can use an onboard rhythm pattern to create a rhythm part with ease. This is
handy because there's no need to record each instrument sound one by one. Take a
look at “Creating a Rhythm Part with Ease” (page 84) or “Copying a Rhythm Pattern”
(page 93).
What's Loop Recording?
1.
Loop Recording is method of recording whereby a specified passage is repeated over
and over, and the notes are recorded in succession.
Record a blank passage that's as long as the song will be when it’s fin-
ished.
If you haven't recorded anything yet, then choose the appropriate Track button or a
part for the 16-track sequencer and record an empty performance having the required
number of measures. This method is called “blank recording.”
Place markers A and B at the passage to be repeated.
Use the Bwd [ «<< ] and Fwd [ >> ] buttons to move to the start of the passage to be
repeated, then press the [A] button to place marker A.
In the same way, move to the end of the passage to be repeated and press the [B] but-
ton to place marker B.
If you don't specify a passage with markers, recording is repeated from the start of the
song to the end.
Press the [Repeat] button, and confirm that its indicator has lit.
The setting for Loop Recording is made.
Pressing the [Repeat] button makes its indicator go dark and cancels Loop Recording.
Press the [Menu] button, and confirm that its indicator has lit.
The Menu screen appears (page 15).
Use the [Beat <] and [Tempo » ] buttons to display “16tr Sequencer”
on the upper portion of the screen.
Press the [Transpose] button to display the following screen.
This is called the “16-track screen.”

7. Use the [Beat <] and [Tempo » | buttons to move the cursor (=) on
the upper portion of the screen to Part 10.
With Parts 10 and 11, you can choose tone sets such as a Drum set or SFX set.
It's probably a good idea to record the rhythm part on Part 10 using a rhythm pattern
or drum set, and record effect sounds on Part 11 using an 5FX set.
8. Press the [Transpose] button to display the following screen.
Press the [Song] button to go back to the 16-track screen.
9. Use the Value [+] and [-] buttons to change the type of drum set.

The KR-277 enters recording standby.
1 2. Press the Play [>] button. The KR-277 counts down two measures,
then recording starts.
After the passage from marker A to marker B has been recorded, the KR-277 goes back
to marker A and continues recording.
Go ahead and record the different drum sounds, one after another: kick drum, snare,
tom, and so on.
1 3. Press the Stop [ m | button to stop recording.
A “ €” appears next to the recorded part. When you've finished recording the first
passage, shift the passage bounded by marker A and marker B (page 65) and record
the next passage in the same way.
14.when you're done recording the drum sounds, press the [Repeat] but-
ton and get its indicator go dark.
Tip
If you want to continue with the same rhythm pattern, use the “Copying a Measure”
method (page 91) to copy the same measures.
If your performance isn’t as expected
- You can erase the selected part by holding down the Rec | @ | button and pressing the
[Transpose] button.
- Use the “Deleting a Specific Measure” method (page 96) to delete the recorded mea-
sures.

M Recording a Bass Part
6.
Next, vou can record the bass part.
At the 16-track screen, choose the Part you want to record.
It's a good idea to record the bass part on Part 2.
Press the [Transpose] button to display the screen for the selected
part.
Press the [Guitar/Bass] button, then use the Value [+] and [-] buttons
to select the bass tone, for example “5:Acoustic Bs..”
Press the Rec [ € ] button, and confirm that its indicator has lit.
The KR-277 enters recording standby.
Press the Play [>] button. The KR-277 counts down two measures,
then recording starts.
Press the Stop [ ! ] button to stop recording.
E Recording the Melody and Chord Parts
Just as you did when you recorded the bass part, start at the 16-track screen by select-
ing the part and tone to be recorded. It's a good idea to record chords on Part 3 and
the melody on Part 4. Once you've recorded the chords and the melody, your song is
finished! If you want to make your composition even more lively, feel free to record
some things like embellishing phrases and percussion sounds.
Tip
If you want to listen to a certain portion of the performance you ve recorded, you can
fast-forward or rewind to the place you want to hear, then play back the song (page
62).
If you want to record a certain passage over again, move to the place you want to do
over, then start recording.
You can play back the previous two measures of the song before you start recording.
Just press the [Count In] button and get its indicator go dark while the KR-277 is in
recording standby.
You can also re-record a passage that you specify by markers or the pedals. Check out “Re-
recording a Specific Passage” (page 79).
You can vary settings such as the volume level for each individual Part. Take a look at
“Changing the Song Settings for Individual Parts” (page 75).
If you select and record over a Part that's already been recorded, the portion of the Part record-
ed earlier changes to the new performance from the place where recording starts fo the place
where it stops. |

E Saving Your Song
Chapter 5
NO
When you've finished recording all the parts, you should save your recorded perfor-
mance on a floppy disk.
A recorded performance is discarded when the power is switched off.
For info on how to save your song, take a look at “Saving Your Songs on Floppy Disk”
(page 38).
If not handled with care, a floppy disk can be bent, destroying the data on it and making play-
back impossible. We recommend saving your songs on two different floppy disks. It's prudent
to make another copy of a floppy disk where your tunes are saved, and put it away for safekeep-
ng.
E Editing Your Song
NÓ
You can use a wide variety methods to make corrections to a composition you've
recorded, such as adding and deleting measures. Check out “Chapter 6 Editing
Functions” (page 89).
Once editing has been performed, it may be impossible to go back to the original state. Also, some settings
may not yield the desired results. Before you start editing, we recommend saving your song on a floppy
disk just in case.
E Editing a Song Saved on Floppy Disk
74
Choose the song on floppy disk that you want to edit, then play back the song until
the left edge of the lower portion of the screen stops flashing. After that, you can edit
the song in the same way as any other song.

E Changing the Song Settings for Individual Parts
When you've recorded a song with the 16-track sequencer, you can change the volume
level, Tone, or other settings for each individual Part, or mute out the sound for a sin-
gle Part.
About the basic song settings
moi
.
Values such as the basic tempo, the Tone and volume level for each Part, and other
settings that are determined at the start for each song are called “basic settings.” With
the KR-277, you can temporarily change the basic song settings of Tone, volume level,
panpot, reverb, and chorus for each Part, and listen to resulting song. You can also
change these basic settings.
To change the basic tempo, refer to "Changing a Song's Basic Tempo" (page 104).

you should save it on a floppy disk (page 38).
The setting that determines whether an individual Part is played or not can’t be saved to floppy disk.
Because commercially available Roland SMF Music Files are also made up of 16 Parts for
sounding the notes of individual instruments, you can change the settings for the individual
Parts and play them back in the same way.

If you assign the function to the Pad [1] or Pad [2] button or to a pedal, you can insert a break in the mid-
dle of a song. Check out “Assigning Functions to Buttons and Pedals” (page 108).

Changing the Standard
Pitch —Master Tuning
The standard pitch generally refers to the pitch of the
note that's played when you finger the middle A key.
If you're performing in an ensemble with other
instruments, what you play together won't sound
good if the standard pitches of the instruments aren't
in tune with each other.
The process of putting the standard pitches in tune
with each other is called “master tuning.”
1. Press the [Function] button, and confirm that its
indicator has lit.
The Function screen appears (page 15).
2. Use the [Beat < ] and [Tempo P | buttons to dis-
play “FNC-2” on the left side of the screen.
3. Use the Value [+] and [-] buttons to change the
standard pitch.
You can set the standard pitch within the range of
415.3 to 466.2 Hz.
The setting is at “440.0 Hz” when the KR-277 is
powered up.
Press the [Song] button to return to the basic
screen.
Changing Various Settings
Changing the Tuning
You can play classical music such as baroque pieces
using their original tuning.
Most modern songs are composed and played with
the assumption that equal temperament (the most
common tuning in use today) will be used, but when
classical music was composed, there were a wide vari-
ety of other tuning systems in existence. Playing a
composition with its original tuning lets you enjoy the
sonorities of the chords that the composer originally
intended.
1. Press the [Function] button, and confirm that its
indicator has lit.
The Function screen appears (page 15).
2. Use the [Beat <« ] and [Tempo P | buttons to dis-
play “FNC-5” on the left side of the screen.
3. Use the Value [+] and [-] buttons to choose the
temperament type (Table 1).

5. Use the Value [+] and [-] buttons to choose the
keynote.
When playing with tuning other than equal tem-
perament, you need to specify the keynote for tun-
ing the song to be performed (that is, the note that
corresponds to C for a major key or to A for a
minor key).
If you choose an equal temperament, there's no
need to select a keynote.
Press the [Song] button to return to the basic
screen.
Table 1
Display Temperament
Characteristics
Equal Equal
This tuning divides an octave into 12 equal parts.
Every interval produces about the same amount of
slight dissonance. This setting is in effect when you
turn on the power.
Pytha Pytha gorean scale
This scale devised by the philosopher Pythagoras
eliminates dissonance in fourths and fifths.
Dissonance is produced by third-interval chords,
but melodies are euphonious.
J.Maj Just Major (just intonation—major)
This scale eliminates dissonance in fifths and
thirds. It is unsuited to playing melodies and can-
not be transposed, but produces beautiful chords.
J.Min Just Minor (just intonation—minor)
The scales of the major and minor just intonations
are different. You can get the same effect with the
minor scale as with the major scale.
MeanT Mean Tone
‘This scale makes some compromises in just intona-
tion, enabling transposition to other keys.
Werck Werckmeister
This is a combination of the mean tone and
Pythagorean scales. Performances are possible in
all keys (first technique, III).
KirnB Kirnberger
This scale is a modification of the meantone and
just intonations that permits greater freedom in
transposition to other keys. Performances are possi-
ble in all keys (FF).
* You can't record a composition in anything but equal
temperament.
— If you're performing in an ensemble with other
instruments, the pitch may sometimes be off, depend-
ing on what key you're playing in. Tune the KR-277 to
the fundamental pitch of the other instruments.

Changing the Tuning Curve
A piano is generally tuned to a pitch with a lower bass
range and a higher treble range than equal tempera-
ment. This special tuning method for pianos is called
“stretch tuning.”
A graph that shows the changes in pitch of actual tun-
ing compared with the changes in equal temperament
pitch is called a tuning curve. Changing the tuning
curve produces subtle variations in the reverberations
of the chords you play.
1. Press the [Function] button, and confirm that its
indicator has lit.

Shifting the Keyboard Pitch
by One of More Octaves
The pitch of the notes you play with the Upper and
Lower sections of the keyboard can be shifted an octave
at a time. This function is called “octave shift.”
For instance, if you choose something like “Strings”
for the Lower section of the keyboard, you might not
be able to hear the notes well because they're too low.
In such cases, raising the sound by an octave lets you
play the Strings notes at the same pitch as when you
finger the Upper section of the keyboard.

Section

If You're Using MIDI
e About MIDI
MIDI stands for “Musical Instrument Digital
Interface,” and is a unified standard for the exchange
of performance data and other information between
electronic instruments and computers.
The KR-277 is equipped with MIDI connectors and a
Computer connector to let it exchange performance
information with external devices. These connectors
can be used to connect the KR-277 to an external
device for even greater versatility.
A separate publication titled “MIDI Implementation”
is also available. It provides complete details concern-
ing the way MIDI has been implemented on this unit.
If you should require this publication (such as when
you intend to carry out byte-level programming),
please contact the nearest Roland Service Center or
authorized Roland distributor.
® About MIDI Connectors
The KR-277 has two kinds of MIDI connectors (page
123).
Connecting these to the MIDI connectors on a MIDI
instrument makes it possible for the two instruments
to control each other. For instance, you can output
sound from the other instrument or switch Tones on
the other instrument.
Connecting External Devices
O MIDI Qut Connector
Performance messages such as information on what
keys are played are sent to the MIDI connector on the
external device from here.
MIDI In Connector
Performance messages from an external MIDI device
are received here. These incoming messages may
instruct the receiving MIDI instrument to play sounds
or switch Tones.
NH Connecting the KR-277 to a MIDI
Device
1. Turn off the KR-277.
2. Set the Computer switch on the bottom of the KR-
277 to “MIDI”
3. Use a MIDI cable (sold separately) to connect the
MIDI connector on the external device to the
MID! connector on the KR-277,
4. Along with these settings, you should also set the
MIDI send channel and switch Local Control on
or off as needed (page 125).

MIDI Settings
With the KR-277, you can make MIDI settings like
those described below. Take a look at page 126 for
explanations of how make the various settings.
(Sending a recorded performance to a MIDI
instrument
You can send a performance recorded on the KR-277
to a connected MIDI instrument or computer.
Data is sent when set to “ON.” Data is not sent when
set to “OFF.” The setting is at “OFF” when the KR-277
is powered up.
1. Perform recording on the KR-277.
2. Follow the steps in “Making the settings” (page
126) to change the setting of “FNC32” to “ON.”
3. Start recording on the connected MIDI instru-
ment,
4. On the KR-277, play back the recorded perfor-
mance.
C Choosing a MIDI send channel
MIDI has something called “channels,” which are
numbered from 1 to 16. 1f you hook up two devices
with a MIDI cable, you won't be able to play notes or
switch tones unless both devices are set to the same
MIDI channel.
The KR-277 selects the MIDI channel for sending. The
channel setting is at “1” when the KR-277 is powered up.
If the keyboard has been split into upper and lower
sections, information from the lower section is not sent.
The KR-277 receives information on all channels from
1 through 16.
Switching Local Control on or off
You can connect the KR-277 and a MIDI sequencer,
record a keyboard performance on the sequencer, then
play back the performance with the sequencer.
MIDI Mipi __Sequencer
| Sound G nerator fe IN QUT M y

MIDI MIDI
QUT iN
If the sequencer’s THRU function is on at this time, the
same notes are sounded twice. Performance informa-
tion from the keyboard reaches the sound generator
by two routes, (1) and (2), so the played notes may
sound strange, or the number of notes sounded at the
same time may decrease. To prevent this, what's
known as “Local Control” is set to “off” to isolate
route (1).

* The setting is at “Local Control ON” when the KR-277 is

* A MIDI sequencer is an instrument that's used to record
and play back a performance as MIDI information.
Products from Roland include the Roland MT series,
which integrates a sequencer amd a sound generator in a
single unit.
The setting for Local Control is toggled on and off
according to the MIDI Local Control messages that are
received. When an instrument in the Roland MT series
is connected, a Local Control “off” message is when
the MT-series instrument is powered up. When you
switch on first the KR-277, then the MT-series instru-
ment, the KR-277 automatically turns off Local
Control.
126
Sending Program Change messages
You can switch tones on a MIDI instrument connected
to the KR-277.
When you choose a Program Change message
(Program Number) and send it to the MIDI instru-
ment, the Tone that corresponds to the Program
Number on the MIDI instrument is selected.
When set up to send Program Change messages in the
usual way, the Tone to send is selected from among
128 Tones. However, some MIDI instruments have
more than 128 Tones. With such devices, the Tone is
selected through a combination of Program Change
messages and Bank Select messages. Bank Select mes-
sages consist of two parts: the MSB (Controller
Number 0: which takes a value of 0-127), and the L5B
(Controller Number 32; with also takes a value of
0-127).
* Some MIDI instruments can’t handle Bank Select mes-
sages. Also, there are some that do handle Bank Select
messages, but don’t recognize the LSB.
* If you want to know more about how Tones are switched
when Program Change messages are received, please see
"MIDI huplementation” (sold separately). If you should
require "MIDI Implementation ”, please contact the nearest
Roland Service Center or authorized Roland distributor.

What Are Music Files?
Music files contain information describing the details
of a musical performance, such as “the C3 key on a
keyboard was pressed for this amount of time, using
this amount of force.”By inserting the floppy disk into
the disk drive on the KR-277, the performance infor-
mation is sent from the floppy disk to the piano, and
played faithfully by the piano. This is different than a
CD, since the music file does not contain a recording
of the sound itself. This makes it possible to erase cer-
tain parts, or to change instruments, tempos and keys
freely, allowing you to use it in many different ways.
Regarding Copyright
Use of the song data supplied with the Music Style
Disk attached to this product for any purpose other
than private, personal enjoyment without the permis-
sion of the copyright holder is prohibited by law.
Additionally, this data must not be copied, nor used in
a secondary copyrighted work without the permission
of the copyright holder.
The KR-277 allows you to
use the following music files
Floppy disks saved on a Roland MT Series, or
Roland Piano Digital HP-G/KR Series instrument
Roland Digital Piano Compatible music files
Roland's original music file is made specifically for
practicing the piano. Some follow an instructional cur-
riculum, allowing for a complete range of lessons,
such as “practicing each hand separately” or “listening
to only the accompaniment.”
SMF Music files (720KB/1.44MB format)
SMFs (Standard MIDI Files) use a standard format for
music file that was formulated so that files containing
music file could be widely compatible, regardless of
the manufacturer of the listening device. An enormous
variety of music is available, whether it be for listening,
for practicing musical instruments, for Karaoke, etc.
If you wish to purchase SMF music files, please con-
sult the retailer where you purchased your KR-277.
* Before using music files, read p.40, “Listening to Music Files”.
SMF with Lyrics SME
“SMF with Lyrics” refers to SMF (Standard MIDI File)
that contains the lyrics. When music files carrying the
“SMF with Lyrics” logo are played back on a compati-
ble device (one bearing the same logo), the lyrics will
appear in its display.
About the KR-277 Sound
Generator
The KR-277 come equipped with GM2 / GS sound
generators.
GENERAL
General MIDI MIDI
The General MIDI is a set of recommendations which
secks to provide a way to go beyond the limitations of
proprietary designs, and standardize the MIDI capa-
bilities of sound generating devices. Sound generating
devices and music files that meets the General MIDI
standard bears the General MIDI logo. Music files
bearing the General MIDI logo can be played back
using any General MIDI sound generating unit to pro-
duce essentially the same musical performance.
General MIDI 2 Midig
The upwardiy compatible General MIDI 2 recommen-
dations pick up where the original General MIDI left
off, offering enhanced expressive capabilities, and
even greater compatibility.
Issues that were not covered by the original General
MIDI recommendations, such as how sounds are to be
edited, and how effects should be handled, have now
been precisely defined. Moreover, the available
sounds have been expanded.
General MIDI 2 compliant sound generators are capa-
ble of reliably playing back music files that carry either
the General MIDI or General MIDI 2 logo.
In some cases, the conventional form of General MID],
which does not include the new enhancements, is
referred to as "General MIDI 1" as a way of distin-
guishing it from General MIDI 2.
GS Format SS
The GS Format is Roland's set of specifications for
standardizing the performance of sound generating
devices. In addition to including support for every-
thing defined by the General MIDI, the highly compat-
ible GS Format additionally offers an expanded num-
ber of sounds, provides for the editing of sounds, and
spells out many details for a wide range of extra fea-
tures, including effects such as reverb and chorus.
Designed with the future in mind, the GS Format can
readily include new sounds and support new hard-
ware features when they arrive.
Since it is upwardly compatible with the General
MIDI, Roland's GS Format is capable of reliably play-
ing back GM Scores equally as well as it performs GS
music files (music files that have been created with the
GS Format in mind).
This product supports both the General MIDI 2 and
the GS Format, and can be used to play back music
files carrying either of these logos.

when just a few keys in the lower section of the key-
board are pressed to specify the chord. This is called
the “One-touch Arranger” (p.24).
Basic Settings
The settings determined initially for each song, such
as the Tone and volume level for cach individual Part,
the basic tempo, and so on, are called “basic settings.”
With the KR-277, you can temporarily change the
basic song settings of Tone, volume level, panpot,
reverb, and chorus for each Part, and listen to the
resulting song. You can also change these basic set-
tings as well as the basic setting for the basic tempo
(page 75).
Bouncing Ball
The flashing dot that moves in a semicircular pattern
across the screen of the KR-277 is called a “bouncing
ball” (p.14).
Chord
Two or more notes sounding at the same time (p.26,
61).
Division
The six performance states that make up a Music
Style are called “Divisions” (page 54).
Drum Set
A Drum Set is a collection of percussive instrument
sounds. With drum sets, a different sound can be
heard for each key on the keyboard. The special
effects sound set is called the “SFX Set” (p.23).
Edit
Editing is to change the song you have recorded, such
as by erasing part of the song, or copying a measure
(p.89).
Ending
This is the last part of the accompaniment. When you
stop playing the Automatic Accompaniment, the KR-
277 plays an ending appropriate for the style (p. 26).
148
Ensemble
A combined performance of two or more instruments
is called an “ensemble.”
Intro
This is the introductory portion of an Automatic
Accompaniment performance. The KR-277 plays an
intro ideally suited to each style when it starts playing
the Automatic Accompaniment (p.25). |
Key Touch
This is the sensation of heaviness—the “touch”—of
the keys when the keyboard is played.
The KR-277 sixty levels of adjustment (p.112).
Layer Play
Playing with two different tones on a key simultane-
ously is called “Layer Play” (p.45).
Music Style
Music Styles are performance patterns in various
musical genres. A Music Style is played automatically
in accord with the specified chord using the KR-277's
One-touch Arranger Function (p.25,53).
Part
On the KR-277, “Part” can have two different mean-
ings. One meaning refers to a performance part (p.54),
such as the right-hand part of a piano song. The other
refers to the 16 parts in the 16-track sequencer (p.71).
Pickup
A song with a pickup does not start on the first beat
(p.80).
Playback
The KR-277 plays back the performance information
(p.41).
PU (Pickup)
A song that does not start on the first beat starts with
what is called a pickup. When playing a pickup song,
the measures will be shown in the display as “PU, 1,
2...” (p.41). |
Save
Saving is storing the recorded performance data onto
a floppy disk (p.38).
Sound Generator
The sound generator of the KR-277 supports
GM2/GS, and can play more than 400 different
sounds (p.143).
Glossary
РОН EEE
Split
The division of the keyboard into upper and lower
zones is referred to as “split,” and different tones can
be played in the keys on different sides of the key that
acts as the boundary between the upper part and
lower part (p.48).
Standard Pitch
The pitch of the sound created by playing the middle
A on the keyboard is called the “standard pitch.”
Changing the standard pitch of the KR-277 is called
“Master Tuning,” and tuning to other musical instru-
ment is called “Tuning” (p.112).
Tone
Tones are the musical instruments or effect sounds
stored in the internal memory of the KR-277. The dis-
play shows “TONE” (p.44).
Tuning Curves
Graphic representations of the changes in pitch of the
equally-tempered tuning versus those of actual tun-
ings are called tuning curves (p.114).
