CAUTION Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:

Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple- connector. Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating in the outlet.

When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold the plug itself and not the cord. Pulling by the cord can damage it.

Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the instrument is not to be used for extended periods of time, or during electrical storms.

Read carefully the attached documentation explaining the assembly process. Failure to assemble the instrument in the proper sequence might result in damage to the instrument or even injury.

Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over.

When transporting or moving the instrument, always use two or more people. Attempting to lift the instrument by yourself may damage your back, result in other injury, or cause damage to the instrument itself.

Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables.

When setting up the product, make sure that the AC outlet you are using is easily accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off the power switch and disconnect the plug from the outlet. Even when the power switch is turned off, electricity is still flowing to the product at the minimum level. When you are not using the product for a long time, make sure to unplug the power cord from the wall AC outlet.

Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the power for all components. Before turning the power on or off for all components, set all volume levels to minimum.

Be sure to set the volumes of all components at their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume controls while playing the instrument to set the desired listening level.

Do not insert a finger or hand in any gaps on the key cover or instrument. Also take care that the key cover does not pinch your finger.

Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the key cover, panel or keyboard.

Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and do not use excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.

Do not use the instrument/device or headphones for a long period of time at a high or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.

Do not place the bench in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over.

Do not play carelessly with or stand on the bench. Using it as a tool or stepladder or for any other purpose might result in accident or injury.

Only one person should sit on the bench at a time, in order to prevent the possibility of accident or injury.

If the bench screws become loose due to extensive long-term use, tighten them periodically using the included tool.

Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use.

Even when the power switch is in standby status, electricity is still flowing to the instrument at the minimum level. When you are not using the instrument for a long time, make sure you unplug the power cord from the wall AC outlet.

Tuning Unlike an acoustic piano, this instrument does not need to be tuned. It always stays perfectly in tune.

Transporting If you move to another location, you can transport this instrument along with your other belongings. You can move the unit as it is (assembled) or you can disassemble the unit before moving.

Transport the keyboard horizontally. Do not lean it up against a wall or stand it up on its side. Do not subject the instrument to excessive vibration or shock.

GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) keyboard This Yamaha digital piano features a special GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) keyboard with matte black keytops.

The GHS keyboard offers natural grand-piano type playability by simulating the heavier touch of the low range and the lighter touch of the high range across the keyboard.

The matte black keytops enhance the pianos luxurious and graceful appearance.

AWM Stereo Sampling This digital piano sounds much closer to a true acoustic piano. Two of the piano Voices, Grand Piano 1 and Grand Piano 2, feature totally samples recorded from a concert grand piano. The Electric Piano Voice features multiple samples for different velocities (Dynamic Sampling); that is, different samples are used depending on how fast or strong you strike the keys.

Using the Pedals If the damper pedal doesnt work, make sure that the pedal cord is properly plugged into the main unit (page 33).

Organ and string Voices will not decay but continue to sound for as long as the sostenuto pedal is depressed.

Damper (Right) pedal

The damper pedal functions in the same way as a damper pedal on an acoustic piano. When the damper pedal is pressed, notes sustain longer. Releasing the pedal immediately stops (damps) any sustained notes.

Sostenuto (Center) pedal

If you play a note or chord on the keyboard and press the sostenuto pedal while the note(s) are held, those notes will sustain as long as you hold the pedal (as if the damper pedal had been pressed) but all subsequently played notes will not be sustained. This makes it possible to sustain a chord, for example, while other notes are played staccato.

Soft (Left) pedal

The soft pedal reduces the volume and slightly changes the timbre of notes played while the pedal is pressed. The soft pedal will not affect notes that are already playing when it is pressed.

When you press the damper pedal here, the notes you play before you release the pedal sustain longer.

When you press the sostenuto pedal here while holding the note, the note will sustain as long as you hold the pedal.

Layering Two Voices (Dual mode) You can layer two Voices and play them simultaneously to create a thicker and more richly textured sound.

1 Engage Dual mode.

You cannot layer the same Voice in Dual mode. Select the two different Voices.

Reverb in Dual mode The reverb type assigned to Voice 1 will take priority. (If the reverb assigned to Voice 1 is set to Off, the reverb assigned to Voice 2 will be in effect.)

While holding down the [PIANO/VOICE] button, press two keys in the range of C1 through F1 simultaneously (or press and hold down one key, then press another) to select the two desired Voices.

Refer to Selecting Voices (page 16) for information on the Voices that are assigned to the keys.

The Voice assigned to the lower key is designated as Voice 1, and the Voice assigned to the higher key is designated as Voice 2.

You can make the following settings for Voices 1 and 2 in Dual mode:

Setting the octave

You can shift the pitch up and down in octave steps for Voice 1 and Voice 2 independently.

Depending on which Voices you combine in Dual mode, the combination may sound better if one of the Voices is shifted up or down an octave.

While holding down the [PIANO/VOICE] button, press one of the C5F5 keys.

Setting the balance

You can adjust the volume balance between two Voices. For example, you can set one Voice as the main Voice with a louder setting, and make the other Voice softer.

While holding down the [PIANO/VOICE] button, press one of the F 5F

6 keys. A

setting of 0 produces an equal balance between the two Dual mode Voices.

Settings below 0 increase the volume of Voice 2 in relation to Voice 1, and settings above 0 increase the volume of Voice 1 in relation to Voice 2.

2 Exit Dual mode and return to normal play mode.

To return to single-Voice play mode, press the [PIANO/VOICE] button.

Transposition Your digital pianos Transpose function makes it possible to shift the pitch of the entire keyboard up or down in semitone intervals up to a maximum of six semitones, and lets you easily match the pitch of the keyboard to the range of a singer or other instruments.

For example, if you set the transposition amount to 5, playing key C produces pitch F. In this way, you can play a song as though it were in C major, and this instrument will transpose it to F major.

Setting the amount of transposition

While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons, press one of the F 2

F 3 keys to set the desired amount of transposition.

To transpose the pitch down (in semitone steps)

While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons, press any key between F

2 and B2.

To transpose the pitch up (in semitone steps)

While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons, press any key between C

3 and F

3.

To restore the normal pitch

While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons, press the C3 key.

MIDI Functions You can make detailed adjustments to the MIDI settings.

MIDI Transmit/Receive Channel Selection In any MIDI control setup, the MIDI channels of the transmitting and receiving equipment must be matched for proper data transfer.

This parameter enables you to specify the channel on which the digital piano transmits or receives MIDI data.

In Dual mode, Voice 1 data is transmitted on its specified channel and Voice 2 data is transmitted on the next greater channel number relative to the specified channel. In this mode, no data is transmitted if the transmit channel is set to Off.

Program change and other like channel messages received will not affect this instruments panel settings or the notes you play on the keyboard.

Data for the demo song, 50 piano preset songs and user song cannot be transmitted via MIDI.

Setting the transmit channel

While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons simultaneously, press one of the C1E2 keys.

Setting the receive channel

While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons simultaneously, press one of the C4F5 keys.

Local Control On/Off Local Control refers to the fact that, normally, the keyboard of this digital piano controls its internal tone generator, allowing the internal Voices to be played directly from the keyboard. This status is called Local Control On, since the internal tone generator is controlled locally by its own keyboard.

Local control can be turned Off, however, so that the keyboard of this digital piano does not play the internal Voices, but the appropriate MIDI information is still transmitted via the MIDI [OUT] connector when notes are played on the keyboard. At the same time, the internal tone generator responds to MIDI information received via the MIDI [IN] connector.

When Local control is turned Off, playing the keyboard of this instrument does not sound the internal Voices.

Default setting: On

While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons simultaneously, press the C6 key.

Pressing the C6 key repeatedly toggles between Local Control On and Off.

When MIDI receive channel is set to ALL:

A Multi-timbre Receive mode is available. In this mode, this instrument receives different parts from the connected MIDI device on any or all 16 MIDI channels and plays multi-channel song data.

When MIDI receive channel is set to 1+2:

A 1+2 Receive mode is available. It allows simultaneous reception on channels 1 and 2 only, enabling this instrument to play 1 and 2 channel song data received from a music computer or sequencer.
