PRECAUTIONS PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING

Please keep this manual in a safe and handy place for future reference.

WARNING Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical shock, short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:

Do not place the power cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators. Also, do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, or place heavy objects on it.

Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required voltage is printed on the name plate of the instrument.

Use the specified adaptor (page 32) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument or overheating.

Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have accumulated on it.

This instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble or modify the internal components in any way. If it should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.

Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet conditions, place on it any containers (such as vases, bottles or glasses) containing liquids which might spill into any openings. If any liquid such as water seeps into the instrument, turn off the power immediately and unplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.

Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.

Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit. A burning item may fall over and cause a fire.

When one of the following problems occur, immediately turn off the power switch and disconnect the electric plug from the outlet. Then have the device inspected by Yamaha service personnel.

- The power cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged.

- It emits unusual smells or smoke.

- Some object has been dropped into the instrument.

- There is a sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument.

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, to prevent damage to the cables or injury to anyone who might trip over them.

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.

Use only the stand specified for the instrument. When attaching the stand or rack, use the provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause damage to the internal components or result in the instrument falling over.

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. This could cause physical injury to you or others, damage to the instrument or other property, or operational failure.

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.

Keep special watch over any small children so that they dont fall off the rear of the bench. Since the bench does not have a backrest, unsupervised use may result in accident or injury.

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

Even when the [ ] (Standby/On) switch is in standby status (power lamp is off), 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.

NOTICE To avoid the possibility of malfunction/ damage to the product, damage to data, or damage to other property, follow the notices below. Handling and Maintenance Do not use the instrument in the vicinity of a TV, radio, stereo equipment, mobile phone, or other electric devices.

Otherwise, the instrument, TV, or radio may generate noise. When you use the instrument along with the application on your iPhone/iPad, we recommend that you set Airplane Mode to ON on your iPhone/iPad in order to avoid noise caused by communication.

Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme cold or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day) to prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration, damage to the internal components or unstable operation. (Verified operating temperature range: 5 40C, or 41 104F.)

Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might discolor the panel or keyboard. In the case of a model with a polished finish, bumping the surface of the instrument with metal, porcelain, or other hard

objects can cause the finish to crack or peel. Use caution. During extreme changes in temperature or humidity, condensation may occur and water may collect on the surface of the

instrument. If water is left, the wooden parts may absorb the water and be damaged. Make sure to wipe any water off immediately with a soft cloth.

Saving data Saved data may be lost due to malfunction or incorrect operation. Save important data to external device such as a

computer (see online manual, Computer-related Operations; page 7).

Using the Pedals NOTE If the damper pedal doesnt work, make sure that the pedal cord is properly plugged into the main unit (page 30).

NOTE While the sostenuto pedal is held, the organ and strings Voices sound continuously without decay after the notes have been released.

Damper Pedal (Right)

Pressing this pedal will sustain notes longer. Releasing this pedal immediately stops (damps) any sustained notes. This pedal also features a half-pedal function that creates partial sustain effects, depending on how far down you press the pedal.

Sostenuto Pedal (Center)

Pressing this pedal while holding the notes will sustain the pressed notes (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 or single low note, for example, while the other notes are played staccato.

Soft Pedal (Left)

Pressing this pedal will reduce the volume and slightly change the timbre of the notes. The notes played before this pedal is pressed are not affected. When you select the Jazz Organ Voice, pressing the left pedal switches between fast/slow rotation of the rotary speaker (page 16).

Using the Damper Resonance The Damper Resonance effect simulates the sustain sound of the damper pedal on a grand piano, as if you were pressing the damper pedal and playing the keyboard. This effect is applied to the entire sound of the instrument.

Default setting: OnTo turn on the Damper Resonance:

While holding [PIANO/VOICE], press the G 2 key.

To turn off the Damper Resonance:

While holding [PIANO/VOICE], press the G2 key.

Half-pedal function This function allows you to vary the sustain length depending on how far the pedal is pressed. The farther down 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 or higher to decrease the sustain (murkiness).

When you press the damper pedal here, this note and 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.

Changing the Touch Sensitivity You can specify the Touch Sensitivity (how the sound responds to the way you play the keys).

NOTE This setting is disabled with some Voices, such as an organ sound.

Default setting: B6 (Medium)

While holding down [PIANO/VOICE], press one of the A6-C7 keys.

Maintenance To keep your ARIUS in optimum condition, we recommend that you periodically follow the maintenance points below.

Instrument and Bench Maintenance

When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry or slightly damp cloth.

NOTICE

Do not use paint thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.

In the case of a model with a polished finish, gently remove dust and dirt with a soft cloth. Do not wipe too hard since small particles of dirt can scratch the instruments finish. To keep the surface polished, apply commercially available piano polisher to a soft cloth and wipe the instruments surface with it. Then, polish it with a separate cloth. Before using any piano polisher, make sure to read the instructions for proper usage.

Tighten the screws of the instrument and bench periodically.

Pedal Cleaning

As with an acoustic piano, pedals may become tarnished over years of use. When this occurs, polish the pedal with a compound designed for piano pedals. Before using the compound, make sure to read the instructions for proper usage.

Tuning

Unlike an acoustic piano, this instrument does not need to be tuned by an expert (although the pitch can be user-adjusted to match other instruments). This is because the pitch of digital instruments is always maintained perfectly.

When transporting

You can load this instrument onto a truck, either fully assembled or disassembled. When doing so, do not lean the instrument (especially the keyboard unit) against a wall, and make sure to lay it horizontally in the truck. When transporting by truck, do not subject the instrument to excessive vibration or shock. If you transport the instrument fully assembled, make sure to check all the screws then tighten them as necessary.

Key Touch Sensitivity Description

A6 Fixed The volume level does not change at all regardless of whether you play the keyboard soft or hard.

A 6 Soft The volume level does not change much when you play the keyboard soft or hard.

B6 Medium This is the standard piano touch response.

C7 Hard The volume level changes very widely from pianissimo to fortissimo to facilitate dynamic and dramatic expression. You have to hit the keys hard to produce a loud sound.

Key Voice Name Voice description

C1 Grand Piano 1 This sound was sampled from a full concert grand piano. It uses different samples depending on the strength of your playing and produces smoother tonal changes. Suitable not only for classical compositions but also for piano pieces of any style.

C 1 Grand Piano 2 Warm and soft piano sound. Good for playing ballads.

D1 Grand Piano 3 Spacious and clear piano with bright reverb. Good for popular music.

D 1 E.Piano 1 An electronic piano sound created by FM synthesis. Good for standard popular music.

E1 E.Piano 2 The sound of an electric piano using hammer-struck metallic tines. Soft tone when played lightly, and an aggressive tone when played hard.

F1 Harpsichord The definitive instrument for baroque music. Since harpsichord uses plucked strings, there is no touch response. There is, however, a characteristic additional sound when the keys are released.

F 1 Vibraphone

Vibraphone played with relatively soft mallets. The tone becomes more metallic the harder you play.

G1 Pipe Organ This is a typical pipe organ sound (8 feet + 4 feet + 2 feet). Good for sacred music from the Baroque period.

G 1 Jazz Organ

The sound of a tonewheel type electric organ. Often heard in jazz and rock music. The rotary speed of the rotary speaker effect can be switched by using the left pedal.

A1 Strings Stereo-sampled, large-scale strings ensemble with realistic reverb. Try combining this Voice with piano in the Dual mode.
