For information on assembling the keyboard stand, refer to the instructions at the end of this manual.

IMPORTANT Check your power supply (YDP-160) Make sure that your local AC mains voltage matches the voltage specified on the name plate on the bottom panel. In some areas a voltage selector may be provided on the bottom panel of the main keyboard unit near the power cord. Make sure that the voltage selector is set for the voltage in your area. The voltage selector is set at 240V when the unit is initially shipped. To change the setting use a "minus" screwdriver to rotate the selector dial so that the correct voltage appears next to the pointer on the panel.

Features

AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling

The Yamaha YDP-160/140 digital piano offers a rich and versatile range of sounds, which are created using Yamahas proprietary sampling tone-generation system, AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling. The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) is a sampling system which creates sound close to that of an acoustic instru- ment by using digital technology to record the instrument sound and applying high-quality digital lter technology to the recorded audio samples. The waveform of the sound created by playing the key of an acoustic piano differs depending on the playing strength from pianissimo to fortissimo. The AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling can produce such dynamic nuances by recording samples of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expressive quality and potential becomes. Two of the piano voices, Grand Piano 1 and Grand Piano 2, feature totally new samples recorded from a full-size concert grand piano. The Grand Piano 1 voice features multiple wave samples for different velocities (Dynamic Sampling); that is, dif- ferent samples are used depending on how fast or strong you strike the keys. Therefore, this voice expresses detailed dynamics and sounds much closer to a true acoustic piano.

GH(Graded Hammer) keyboard and GHS(Graded Hammer Standard) keyboard with matte black keytops

A special Graded Hammer keyboard on the YDP-160, and Graded Hammer Standard keyboard with matte black keytops on the YDP-140, feature graded key weight and response throughout the keyboard range. They respond to a heavier touch in the low range of the keyboard and a lighter touch in the higher range of the keyboard, thus provid- ing natural grand-piano type playability. The matte nish of the black keys enhances keyboards luxurious appear- ance. The Graded Hammer keyboard also offers superb playability for tremolo and other repetitive-striking techniques.

Using the Pedals If the damper pedal doesnt work, make sure that the pedal cord is properly plugged into the main unit (page 37).

Organ and string voices will 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. The damper pedal features a half-pedal function.

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 sus- tained. This makes it possible to sustain a chord, for example, while other notes are played stac- cato.

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.

What is the half-pedal function? This function allows the sus- tain length to vary depend- ing on how far the pedal is pressed. The farther you press the pedal, the more the sound sustains. For example, if you press the damper pedal and all notes you are playing sound a bit murky and loud with too much sustain, you can release the pedal half way to subdue the sustain (murki- ness).

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.

Adding Variations to the Sound Reverb This control enables you to select various digital reverb effects that add extra depth and expression to the sound to create a realistic acoustic ambience.

While holding down the [PIANO/VOICE] button, press one of the C2E2 keys to select a reverb type.

Adjusting Reverb Depth

The default reverb type (includ- ing OFF) and depth settings are different for each voice.

depth 0: no effect depth 20: maximum reverb depth

Adjust the reverb depth for the selected voice by pressing one of the C3G 4 keys while

holding down the [PIANO/VOICE] button. The depth range is from 0 through 20.

While holding down the [PIANO/VOICE] button, press the A4 key to set the reverb to the depth most suitable for the selected voice.

Procedure

Key Reverb Type Description

C2 Room This setting adds a continuous reverb effect to the sound, similar to the acoustic reverberation you would hear in a room.

C 2 Hall1 For a bigger reverb sound, use the HALL 1 setting. This effect simu-

lates the natural reverberation of a small-size concert hall.

D2 Hall2 For a truly spacious reverb sound, use the HALL 2 setting. This effect simulates the natural reverberation of a large concert hall.

D 2 Stage Simulates the reverb of a stage environment.

E2 Off No effect is applied.

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

You cannot assign the same voice to Voice 1 and Voice 2 simultaneously in Dual mode.

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.)

1. Engage Dual mode. While holding down the [PIANO/VOICE] button, press two keys in the range of C1through A1 (YDP-160) or C1 through F1 (YDP-140) simultaneously (or press and hold down one key, then press another) to select the two desired voices.

Refer to Selecting Voices (page 19) for information on the voices that are assigned to the keys.

The voice assigned to the lower key will be designated as Voice 1, and the voice assigned to the higher key will be 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 inde- pendently. Depending on which voices you combine in Dual mode, the combi- nation 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 increases the volume of Voice 2 in relation to Voice 1, and set- tings above 0 increases the volume of Voice 1 in relation to Voice 2.

2. Exit Dual mode and return to normal play mode. While holding down the [PIANO/VOICE] button, press one of the C1A1 (YDP- 160) or C1F1 (YDP-140) keys.

In any MIDI control setup, the MIDI channels of the transmitting and receiving equip- ment 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.

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 con- trols its internal tone generator, allowing the internal voices to be played directly from the keyboard. This situation is 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 trans- mitted 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.

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.

Program Change ON/OFF For information on program change numbers for each voice, check the MIDI Data Format on the web (please refer to Data List on page 6).

Normally this instrument will respond to MIDI program change numbers received from an external keyboard or other MIDI device, causing the correspondingly-num- bered voice to be selected on the corresponding channel (the keyboard voice does not change). This instrument will normally also send a MIDI program change number whenever one of its voices is selected, causing the correspondingly-numbered voice or program to be selected on the external MIDI device if the device is set up to receive and respond to MIDI program change numbers. This function makes it possible to cancel program change number reception and trans- mission so that voices can be selected on this instrument without affecting the external MIDI device.

While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons simultaneously, press the C6 key. Pressing the C6 key repeatedly toggles between Program Change On and Off.

Control Change ON/OFF For information on control changes that can be used with this instrument, check the MIDI Data Format on the web (please refer to Data List on page 6).

MIDI Control Change data refers to MIDI information related to performance expres- sion (such as damper pedal information). You can transmit MIDI Control Change data from this instrument to control the oper- ation of the connected MIDI device. (For example, if you operate this instruments damper pedal, this instrument will transmit MIDI Control Change data.) On the other hand, MIDI performance data of this instrument will respond to MIDI Control Change data received from the connected MIDI device. (At this time, the voice you are playing on the keyboard will not be affected by the Control Change data.) The ability to transmit and receive MIDI Control Change data is sometimes very use- ful. Turn Control Change On if it is convenient for you to have this capability. Turn Control Change Off if you rather prefer not to have this capability.

While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons simultaneously, press the D6 key. Pressing the D6 key repeatedly toggles between Control Change On and Off.
