INTRODUCTION
Features
SMF
We'd like to take a moment to thank you for purchasing the Roland KR-370 Digital Piano.
With the KR-370's easy-to-operate keyboard and automatic accompaniment, you will find
it truly enjoyable to play. In order to enjoy reliable performance for many years to come,
please take the time to read this manual in its entirety.
One Touch Set-Up Buttons
By pressing the One Touch Program [Arranger] Button you can instantly select the Tone
and tempo to match any musical style, allowing the creation of your own performances.
Pressing the One Touch Program [Piano] Button enables the entire keyboard to be played.
The unit features one hundred Tone settings and one hundred
programmed styles, covering a wide variety of musical genres.
And with the included Style Disk, you get another twenty styles.
You can assemble your own Styles by combining individual
settings of preprogrammed Styles.
Each part can be adjusted and combined. Go ahead—combine various styles, and see how
easy it is to put together your own favorites.
You can easily switch to Karaoke mode, and sing along with the music!
This unit comes equipped with a microphone input that possible to adjust the key and the amount
of echo.
The high-quality concert grand piano sound and hammer-action keyboard
It make for realistic piano performances.
This keyboard also features a Composer.
It works like a tape recorder, so recording is a snap. And using commercially available
music data disks, you can also play ensemble with “Minus One Play”—all you add is you!
General MIDI System
The General MIDI System is a set of recommendations which seeks to standardize the
MIDI support features of sound generating devices. Sound generating devices and musical
data (disks) carrying the General MIDI logo conform to the General MIDI specifications.
This means that whenever you play music data marked with the General MIDI logo, the
musical response will be identical when played on any device which also carries the
General MIDI logo.
GS Format
Roland developed the GS Format to standardize the response of sound generators when
MIDI is used for the production of music. By using a GS Format sound generating device,
you can be assured that you will always obtain a faithful, high-quality rendition of any
commercially available music data that carries the GS Format logo.
The KR-370's sound generator fully supports both the General MIDI system and the GS
Format—s0 you can use music data that is designed for either standard.
SMF Music Data
The KR-370 is capable of playing Standard MIDI Files, such as “SMF Music Data” (720
KB/1.44 MB format 3.5 inch floppy disks).

Important Notes
In addition to the items listed under "IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS" and
"USING THE UNIT SAFELY" on pages p.2 and p.3, please read 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).
* Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off the power to all units. This will help
prevent malfunctions and/or damage to speakers or other devices.
Placement
* Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other equipment containing large power trans-
formers) may induce hum. To alleviate the problem, 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” (p. 8).
* Do not place the unit near devices that produce a strong magnetic field (e.g., loud-
speakers).
* 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.
Maintenance
e 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 mild, non-abrasive detergent.
Afterwards, be sure to wipe the unit thoroughly with a soft, dry cloth.
* Never use benzene, 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.
* Use a reasonable amount of care when using the unit's buttons, sliders, 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.
* 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 reasonable levels.
You may prefer to use headphones, so you do not need to be concerned about those
around vou (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.
Important Notes
Before Using Floppy Disks
Handling the Floppy Disk drive
e Install the unit on a solid, level surface in an area free from vibration. If the unit must be
installed at an angle, be sure the installation does not exceed the permissible range:
upward, 0°; downward, 0°.
Avoid using the unit immediately after it has been moved to a location with a level of
humidity that is greatly different than its former location. Rapid changes in the environ-
ment 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 oper-
ating 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 attempt to remove a floppy disk from the drive while the drive is operating (the
indicator is lit); damage could result to both the disk and the drive.
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.
Handling Floppy Disks
* Floppy disks contain a plastic disk with a thin coating of magnetic storage 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 han-
dling 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 era-
sure. 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.
ея Rear side of the disk
SF
= | Write
( 09) — (can write new data onto disk)
Sau
Et
Write Protect Tab >——7 Protect
(prevents writing to disk)
* The identification label should be firmly affixed to the disk. Should the label come loose
while the disk is in the drive, it may be difficult to remove the disk.
* Put the disk back into its case for storage.

2.Using Style Play
Let's Play Something Simple
The KR-370 features an Arranger function which allows you to easily play ensemble per-
formances—all by yourself!
The Arranger function automatically supplies accompaniment to match the chord you are
playing, according to the selected music style. (A variety of styles are provided, covering
many musical genres.) Playing the keyboard while using the Arranger function is called
“Style Play.”
Basic Operation of Style Play
1. Press the One Touch Program [Arranger] Button.
2. Choose a Style.
3. Play a chord on the left side of the keyboard, and the intro of the style is produced.
After that, the accompaniment starts.
Right-hand
Part q Part
4. Start playing! You'll be playing chords on the left, and melody on the right.
If you need to, you may set the accompaniment speed.
* With the KR-370, playing chords is much simpler than you might think. (For more detail,
please check out the section, “Playing Chords with Simple Fingering—Chord Intelligence.”)
(p. 24)
5. When Play is finished, press the [Intro/Ending] button.
The accompaniment stops when the ending is played.

2.Using Style Play
Once the chord for the left-hand part has been played, you don’t need to keep the keys
depressed until you play the next chord. (Chord Hold) (p. 25)
After you've played the chord and taken your hands from the keyboard, get ready for the
next chord you'll be playing.
If you want to slow down the accompaniment, press the Tempo [-] button. If you'd rather
speed it up, then press the Tempo [+] button.
5. When the performance is through, press the [Intro/Ending] button.
If you want to begin the performance again, press the [Intro/Ending] and
[Start/Stop] buttons at the same time. Then, when you press the C on the left side of
the keyboard, the accompaniment will start up.
By selecting a different Style, a completely different mood can be created.
Please go through the various styles, and try to find one that matches the song.

1. When you press the One Touch Program [Arranger] button, the button's indicator
will come on. This enables Style Play by making the settings below:
- Style Play's Sync Start is placed in standby (p. 21)
- The keyboard is placed in Split mode, with the split point at G3. Keys to the left
are for accompaniment, and keys to the right play the melody.
- À Tempo and Tone appropriate for the right-hand part are set.
- The left pedal’s leading bass function is turned On. (p. 56)
- The center pedal's break function is turned On. (p. 55)
When the One Touch Program [Arranger] button's indicator is lit, the tempo and the Tone
for the right-hand part are set to match the Style you have chosen.
* During Style Play, the Tone for the left-hand part is not sounded.
* You can change the split point for Split Mode. Please read “Changing the Split Point” (p.
56).
* During Style Play, there may be times when the pitch of the left-hand part changes. This is
because the most appropriate pitch for the selected Tone is set.
* Style Play, Layer Play (p. 33), and Split Play (p. 32) cannot be used at the same time.
* When using Style Play after playback of performance data from a music data disk, settings
such as the Tone may have changed.
When this happens, either press the Song [A] and |W] buttons until “0” appears in the dis-
play window, or just erase the recorded performance ("Erasing All Data" p. 36).

2.Using Style Play
Enabling Chord Recognition Over the Entire Keyboard
—Piano Style Arranger Play
Pressing the [Whole] button while using One Touch Arranger allows you to have chords
recognized anywhere on the keyboard. This allows you to enjoy playing the piano in a
more normal manner (without having to think about the split point) and still have accom-
paniment added automatically. This type of performance is known as “Piano Style
Arranger Play.”
When You Want to Change Only the Style, Not the Tone or Tempo
During Style Play, when you change the Style, the Tone and tempo automatically change
to match the new Style. If you want to change only the Style, and not the Tone or tempo,
hold down the One Touch Program [Arranger] button for several seconds, and the but-
ton's indicator will go out. After the One Touch Program [Arranger] button’s indicator
goes off, you can change the Style.
* While using Piano Style Arranger, when you press three keys simultaneously, it is recog-
nized as a chord.
<<What is a Style?>>
There are many kinds of music throughout the world, each with its own characteristics.
Jazz has a “Jazzy” feel, classical music seems “classical.” You can say that the “mood” of
any style of music is a combination of rhythm and tempo, instruments used, melody, and
phrasing.
The sum of the elements that make such a musical genre is called a Music Style.
With each Style, you can manipulate the rhythm, bass, and chords that comprise the
accompaniment, or even just the rhythm.
Choosing a Style
The KR-370 has a large number of built-in Styles. These Styles are grouped into eight
Groups according to their genre.

different Style Group, or do some other operation without first saving the Style you've cho-
sen, the currently selected Style reverts to the Style that was saved previously.
* The number of Styles varies from one Group to another. Check out the “Style List” (p. 71)
for the numbers and names of Styles.

Playing Chords with Simple Fingering—Chord Intelligence
During Style Play, chords are played with the left hand. The KR-370 makes it possible to
use simple fingering to play seven typical types of chords at this time.
For example, a C chord ordinarily requires you to play do, mi, and sol. But with the KR-
370, all you have to do is play the root of the chord (do)—there’s no need to play the other
two keys. This function is called “Chord Intelligence.”
The way the keys are fingered is described below. All of the key-fingering illustrations
below show chords with C (do) as the root note. For other chords, refer to the “Intelligent
Chord” (p. 76).
@Major (M): Play the root of the chord. M: Root Note

2.Using Style Play
Holding Chords Played with the Left Hand —Chord Hold
Chord Hold is a function that continues play of the music style while maintaining the
sounds played on the section of the keyboard. The chord played on the lower section is
held until you play the next chord. This lets you play a chord, release the keys, and get
ready to play the next chord.
Using a Style Disk
Besides the Styles that come built-in with the keyboard, there are an additional thirty-six
styles on the Style Disk included with your KR-370. By calling up the Styles from the Disk
with the [Disk/User] button, you can use them just as you would the internal Styles.
To find these Style names and numbers, please see the “Music Style List” (p. 71).
* Please note that if you select a Style from the Disk after calling up your own original Styles
(User Style) from the keyboard's internal Style bank, that User Style will be crased! If you
want to save User Style, please see “Saving Original Styles to Disk” (p. 57).

Creating a Style—5Setting Up User Styles
The Styles that come built-in with the KR-370 (internal Styles) are composed of four parts:
“Rhythm,” “Bass,” “Accompaniment 1,” and “Accompaniment 2.”
With the KR-370, you can combine the parts from different Styles, thereby creating your
own original Styles. A Style that you create is called a “User Style.” The tempo of a User
Style is established by the tempo of the Rhythm part's Style. When you wish to change the
tempo, press the [Tempo] button to adjust it.

Muting Specific Parts in Each Division
The word “division” is used to describe a particular stage of a performance. When per-
forming using Style Play, there are six divisions, as listed below:
- When the intro is being played
- When an original accompaniment pattern is being played
- Whena variation accompaniment pattern is being played
- When a variation fill-in is being played
- When an original fill-in is being played
- When the ending is being played
With the KR-370, when you select a division from a User Style, you can prevent a specific
part of that division from sounding (mute the part).
¥ You can mute parts in each division only on Styles that have been stored in internal memo-
ry. You will be unable to mute the part in divisions of Styles saved to floppy disks.

The indicator for the Part button stops flashing and remains lit continuously.
Once the Tone has been saved, you can then call it up just by pressing the Group button.
A Tone is selected only temporarily unless it is saved to the Group button. If you choose a
different Tone Group, or do some other operation without first saving the Tone you've
chosen, the currently selected Tone Group reverts to the one that was saved previously.
* The number of Tones varies from one Group to another. Check out the “Tone List” (p. 70)
for the numbers and names of Tones.
* When the power is switched off and then back on, the Tone for the left-hand part is set to
Tone number 8.35, “Acoustic Bass.”
* The Tone numbers for the Tone Groups when the power is turned on are as follows.
Left-hand Part Tone Groups 1 to 7: Tone number 1
Tone Group 8: Tone number 35 (Acoustic Bass)
Right-hand Part Tone Groups 1 to 8: Tone number 1
* If you change the Tone Group for the right-hand part, the selected Tone Group for Whole-
Keyboard Play also changes.
* The Tone settings for the Group buttons are saved separately for the left-hand and right-
hand parts. This means that pressing the same Group button for the left-hand and right-
hand parts may produce different Tones.
* The pitch of the sound may be altered when the keyboard is split, because the unit sets the
pitch to the optimum range for the Tone that is selected.
* Split Play, Laver Play (p. 33), and Style Play (p. 18) cannot be carried out simultaneously.
Playing Two Tones at the Same Time—Layer Play
You can use the keyboard to play two different tones at the same time. For instance, it’s
possible to play a performance that uses the Tones for both Piano and Strings. This method
of performance is called “Layer Play.”
The [Balance] slider can be used to adjust the volume balance of the two Tones.
As an example of this, let's try Layer Play using the Tones for Piano and Strings.

4.Recording and Playback
Recording a Performance
The KR-370 has a built-in recording feature, called the “Composer,” that works much like a
tape recorder. The Composer makes it possible to record what you play, and also to use
commercially available music data in your performances.
The KR-370 allows you to record and save one song. Every time you make a recording, the
performance data is automatically divided into five tracks and saved. These five tracks and
their buttons are shown below:

(includes Layer Play)
What Are Tracks?
Tape recorders (and many other audio recording devices) are designed so they use sepa-
rate locations for placing the sound for the left speaker versus that for the right speaker.
These locations are called “tracks.”

buttons flash.
Only when you're playing while set to Whole keyboard can you record to a desired track
(any except the Rhythm track). In this case, the track at the button that was pressed last
becomes the track used for recording.
* IF there is a disk in the disk drive, or if you're recording your own performance after playing
performance data on disk, use the Song [A] and [Y] buttons to choose “0.”
The number “0” is assigned to your performance.
After that, press the [Rec] button and continue with the following steps.

3. When the performance is over, press the [Stop] or [Reset] button.
If you press the [Reset] button, the performance stops and is rewound to the begin-
ning of the first measure.
The indicators on Track buttons where data has been recorded will now light steadi-
ly instead of blinking.
* Some Cautions About Recording
If you perform any of the following operations after making a recording, the performance
data you've recorded will be discarded:
- Switch oft the power
- Press the [All Song Play] button to play songs on disk
If you want to save the performance data you've recorded, see “Saving a Recorded
Performance to Disk—Save” (p. 39). |
* Once you have a song recorded on the KR-370, vou won't be able to select songs con-
tained on disk. If you want to play data from a disk, first refer to “Erasing All Data” (p. 36).
* In Style Play or in performances which make use of the chorus effect, if you overdo it on
the organ with rotary effect, you might experience problems, including Tones other than
organ being affected by the rotary effect, or the rotary effect on the organ Tone being lost.
If You Make a Mistake in the Performance
If you make a mistake, here's how to do the recording over again.

Temporarily Erasing Sounds on a Specific Track (Track Mute)
When working on a specific track, you can temporarily keep the sound from playing
(mute) on just that one track.
In instances such as when you might want to practice your keyboard skills with only one
part of a song on a commercial music disk, just mute the track for the part you are going to
play yourself. This playing in place of the recorded, but muted part is called “Minus One
Play.” You can also record your Minus One Play. (p. 38) (Refer to “Recording Minus One
Play)
1. Pressing a lit track button will turn off the indicator on that button.
As long as the indicator is off, the track will not play back its sound. When you press
the track button again, its indicator will come back on, and the sound will again be
heard.
Rewinding Back to and Playing the Same Passage
The KR-370 lets you place a marker in a song. Once you've placed this marker, you can
play back the song from the beginning of the marked measure.

Arranging Separate Notes—Quantize (Edit 2)
You can arrange the timing of the notes in a recorded performance. This is called
“Quantize.” For example, sometimes the timing of quarter notes becomes somewhat shift
ahead or back from the way it was intended to be played. In this case, by quantizing the
quarter (1/4) notes, you can get the timing just right.
With this procedure, you can arrange the timing of all the tracks.
* Once you Quantize, you will not be able to return to the original version—so before you
go ahead with a Quantize, we recommend that you first save your performance data on
disk.

* Cautions on Using a Mike
Noise may be heard from the speakers if the mike volume is set too high when the mike is
connected to the KR-370. Lower the mike volume on the unit before plugging in the mike.
The position of the mike relative to the KR-370 may cause howling (a screeching sound). If
this happens, change the orientation of the mike or lower the mike volume.

Using the Synchronized Accompaniment Function
When this function has been switched on, then during Style Play the Style starts when the
accompaniment side of the keyboard is played and stops when the keys are released.
When the accompaniment side of the keyboard is played, the Style starts up again from
where it left off. This is called “Synchronized Accompaniment.” When used during record-
ing, the recording also pauses when the keyboard is released, so this function can be handy
when you're recording a song with difficult chord progressions. With Synchronized

What's the Leading Bass Function?
During Style Play, the root of a chord that is fingered is usually played as a bass note.
When the Leading Bass function is used, the lowest note of the chord actually fingered is
played as a bass note. This means that the bass note changes when a chord is inverted. The
Leading Bass function is applied only while the left pedal is depressed during Style Play.

What's an Inversion?
The capital letter in a chord name indicates the root note, which is the sound that forms the
basis for the chord. A chord that is composed of other notes stacked on top of this root,
which 1s the lowest note, is referred to as being in “root position.”
In contrast to this, a chord where one of the other constituent notes 15 at the bottom is
called an “inversion.” To distinguish between chords in root position and inversions of
them, notation such as “/C” or “/G,” which indicates the lowest note as a fraction, is used
for inversions.

Once the channel that the KR-370 uses for sending on is matched with the channel that an
external MIDI device is going to use, the KR-370 can be used to select and play sounds con-
tained in the external MIDI device. In order to get the channels matched, you may need to
change the KR-370's MIDI Transmit Channel.

Muting MIDI Channels
Performance data can specify the use of up to a maximum of 16 channels, each of which
will be controlling the play of a specific part or instrument sound. You can prevent one or
more of those channels from sounding (mute 1t) whenever you like. For example, if you
want to perform Minus One Play using SMF music data, simply mute the MIDI channel
that would normally play the part you want to play.
* Consult the SMF data booklet to find out which channels are assigned to the difterent parts
when you wish to use the data tor Minus One Play.

8.Connecting the KR-370 to a MIDI Instrument or Computer
The KR-370 is equipped with MIDI connectors and a Computer jack to let it exchange per-
formance information with external devices. These jacks can be used to connect the KR-370
to an external device for even greater versatility.
To prevent malfunction and/or damage to speakers or other devices, always turn down
the volume, and turn off the power on all devices before making any connections.
Connecting the KR-370 to a MIDI Instrument
The KR-370 has two MIDI connectors, labeled MIDI In and MIDI Out. 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.
How to Make the Connection with a MIDI Instrument
Set the Computer switch on the back of the KR-370 to “MIDL” Use MIDI cables to connect
the MIDI connectors on the MIDI instrument and the KR-370.

Troubleshooting
Check Here First Before Assuming the Piano is Malfunctioning
There is no sound.
e The [Volume] slider is completely lowered.
® Headphones are plugged into the keyboard.
@® The [Balance] slider has been moved to the [Accomp] side. Try moving it toward the
[Manual] side.
Even when you play the keyboard, there is no sound.
@Sometimes, after plaving back certain kinds of performance data, no sound is heard
when you play the keyboard. If this happens, press the Song [A] and [Y] buttons until
“0” appears in the display window, or try clearing the recorded performance data. (Refer
to "Erasing All Data" p. 36)
E Local Control is set to “Off” When Local Control is set to “Off,” the KR-370 will not
sound, even when you play the keyboard. Try setting Local Control to “On.” (Refer to
"Making the Setting for Local Control” p. 59)
Not all notes are played.
@ You can play a maximum of 28 notes simultaneously on the KR-370. If the overall num-
ber of notes at any one time exceeds 26, then some notes will be omitted. Instances where
this may happen include playing the keyboard while listening to a song from disk, or
playing songs that call for heavy use of the damper pedal.
Disk Performance Data Fails to Play Immediately
O There are two types of SMF music data, Format 0 and Format 1. Playback of format 1
tends to take a while betore starting. Until playback begins, the following message
appears in the display window:
о Rotate the figure in the direction of the arrow.
[IM [MP ©
For the format type, please consult the booklet for the SMF music data you are using.
The Display Window Shows “PU” When Playing SMF music data.
@ For songs which don’t start on the downbeat of the first measure, “PU” (Pickup) appears
in the display window when the piece begins. After that, the measure number appears in
the display window.
You Press the [Fwd] or [Bwd] buttons, but there is no Fast Forward or Rewind
® Depending on the performance data, there may be instances when it takes a little while
tor Rewind and Fast Forward to get going. Please just wait for this.
The Tone Changes
€ When you are in Style Play, and you change Styles, the Tone and tempo change automat-
ically to match the new style. If you want to change the Style without changing the Tone
and tempo, hold down the One Touch Program [Arranger] button for at least one sec-
ond, and the button's indicator will go out. After this, you can change the Style alone.
@ The Tone in Whole Keyboard Play is the same as the Tone of the right-hand part in Split
Play (as well as in Style Play).
If you change the Tone in one, the other will make the same change.
ESometimes, after recording with [Whole] tracks certain kind of performance data, the
Tone already stored change to the one you have set.
68
Troubleshooting
@®You are temporarily only able to choose expansion Tones. When you change the perfor-
mance conditions (e.g., changing from Whole Keyboard Play to Split Play), you will
return to the previous Tone settings.
The Style Sounds Strange
O When you play a Style after playing back a performance from a disk, sometime the Tone
changes for the entire keyboard.
In such cases, either use the Song [A] and [W] buttons to call up “0,” or clear the record-
ed performance "Erasing All Data” (p. 36).
@In Style Play or in performances which make use of the chorus effect, if you overdo it on
the organ with rotary effect, vou might experience problems, including Tones other than
organ being affected by the rotary effect, or the rotary effect on the organ Tone being
lost.
You Can't Use Whole Keyboard Play
® When using Arranger (when the One Touch Program [Arranger] button's indicator is

unit is now in Piano Style Arranger Play mode, whereby chords are recognized and
sounded on the entire keyboard. In this mode, the keyboard plays like a piano, but with
automatic accompaniment—you don't need to think about chords or split points.
To go into Whole Keyboard Play, press the One Touch Program [Piano] button.
You Are Unable to Use the Chord Intelligence Function
© While using Piano Style Arranger, when you press three keys simultaneously, it is recog-
nized as a chord.

Memory capacity has been exceeded, so no more data may be recorded.
The music data file is too big to record or be played back.
You cannot use this data on the KR-370.

save what you are working on to disk. ("Saving a Rocorded Performance” p. 39)
The total volume of Style data would be too large if put together this way, and
the unit would not be able to save it. Or, the Disk Style data you are trying to

Press the [stop] button, and the error message will be cleared.

You cannot play back music data while there is performance data recorded on
the KR-370.
However, if you don't mind deleting the recorded data, press the [Rec] button.
You can also save the data onto a floppy disk. (p. 39)
