Owners Manual IMPORTANT

Check Your Power Supply 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.

If the instrument has a key cover, take care that the key cover does not pinch your fingers, and do not insert a finger or hand in the key cover gap.

If the instrument has a key cover, never insert or drop paper or metallic or other objects between the slits of the key cover and the keyboard. If this happens, immediately turn off the power and remove the electric plug from the outlet and have the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.

Do not place the instrument against a wall (allow at least 3 cm/one-inch from the wall), since this can cause inadequate air circulation, and possibly result in the instrument overheating.

Read carefully the attached documentation explaining the assembly pro- cess. Failure to assemble the instrument in the proper sequence might re- sult in damage to the instrument or even injury.

Do not operate the instrument for a long period of time at a high or uncom- fortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.

USING THE BENCH (if included) Do not play carelessly with or stand on the bench. Using it as a tool or step-

ladder 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.

SAVING USER DATA Always save data to a floppy disk frequently, in order to help prevent the loss

of important data due to a malfunction or user operating error.

Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.

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

PRECAUTIONS PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING

* Please keep these precautions in a safe 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 open the instrument or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or modify them in any way. The instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. 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, or place containers on it containing liquids which might spill into any openings.

If the power cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is a sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument, or if any unusual smells or

smoke should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off the power switch, disconnect the electric plug from the outlet, and have the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.

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

Before cleaning the instrument, always remove the electric plug from the outlet. Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.

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

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 place the power cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators, and do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, place heavy objects on it, or place it in a position where anyone could walk on, trip over, or roll anything over it.

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.

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

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

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. Also, 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 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 or damage to the inter- nal components.

Do not use the instrument near other electrical products such as televisions, radios, or speakers, since this might cause interference which can affect proper operation of the other products.

Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might acciden- tally fall over.

Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables.

When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths. Also, do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might discolor the 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.

Cleaning the Disk Drive Read/Write Head ......................................................................................

Clean the read/write head regularly. This instrument employs a precision magnetic read/write head which, after an extended period of use, will pick up a layer of magnetic particles from the disks used that will even- tually cause read and write errors.

To maintain the disk drive in optimum working order Yamaha recommends that you use a commercially- available dry-type head cleaning disk to clean the head about once a month. Ask your Yamaha dealer about the availability of proper head-cleaning disks.

Never open or close the key cover while a disk is extending from the drive (i.e. in the ejected position). The key cover may contact the disk, possibily dam- aging the disk or even the disk drive.

Never insert anything but floppy disks into the disk drive. Other objects may cause damage to the disk drive or floppy disks.

About the Floppy Disks ...................................

To handle floppy disks with care: Do not place heavy objects on a disk or bend or

apply pressure to the disk in any way. Always keep floppy disks in their protective cases when they are not in use.

Do not expose the disk to direct sunlight, extremely high or low temperatures, or excessive humidity, dust or liquids.

Do not open the sliding shutter and touch the ex- posed surface of the floppy disk inside.

Do not expose the disk to magnetic fields, such as those produced by televisions, speakers, motors, etc., since magnetic fields can partially or completely erase data on the disk, rendering it unreadable.

Never use a floppy disk with a deformed shutter or housing.

Do not attach anything other than the provided labels to a floppy disk. Also make sure that labels are at- tached in the proper location.

To protect your data (Write-protect Tab): To prevent accidental erasure of important data, slide the

disks write-protect tab to the protect position (tab open).

Data backup For maximum data security Yamaha

recommends that you keep two copies of important data on separate floppy disks. This gives you a backup if one disk is lost or damaged. To make a backup disk use the Disk Copy function on page 142.

Inserting/Ejecting Floppy Disks .............

To insert a floppy disk into the disk drive: Hold the disk so that the label of the disk is facing

upward and the sliding shutter is facing forward, towards the disk slot. Carefully insert the disk into the slot, slowly pushing it all the way in until it clicks into place and the eject button pops out.

Handling the Floppy Disk Drive (FDD) and Floppy Disks

Precautions Be sure to handle floppy disks and treat the disk drive with care. Follow the important precautions below.

Compatible Disk Type 3.5" 2DD and 2HD type floppy disks can be used.

DISK IN USE

To eject a floppy disk: Before ejecting the disk, be sure to confirm that the

FDD is stopped (check if the [DISK IN USE] lamp is off). Press the eject button slowly as far as it will go; the disk will automatically pop out. When the disk is fully ejected, carefully remove it by hand.

DISK IN USE

DISK IN USE lamp

Never attempt to remove the disk or turn the power off during recording, reading and playing back. Doing so can damage the disk and possibly the disk drive.

If the eject button is pressed too quickly, or if it is not pressed in as far as it will go, the disk may not eject prop- erly. The eject button may become stuck in a half-pressed position with the disk extending from the drive slot by only a few millimeters. If this happens, do not attempt to pull out the partially ejected disk, since using force in this situation can damage the disk drive mechanism or the floppy disk. To remove a partially ejected disk, try press- ing the eject button once again, or push the disk back into the slot and then repeat the eject procedure.

Be sure to remove the floppy disk from the disk drive before turning off the power. A floppy disk left in the drive for extended periods can easily pick up dust and dirt that can cause data read and write errors.

Z Connect the power cord. Insert the plugs at the ends of the cord, one into the AC INLET on the bottom panel of the Clavinova, and the other into a standard AC outlet. In some areas, a plug adapter may be provided to match the pin con- figuration of the AC wall outlets in your area.

X Press the [POWER] switch. The main display appears in the LCD display. (Initially, the voice Grand Piano and the accompaniment style 8 Beat 1 are selected.) The power lamp below the lower left end of the keyboard also lights.

C Adjust the LCD. If the LCD is difficult to read, adjust the contrast with the [CON- TRAST] knob at the left of the LCD.

V Adjust the volume. Use the [MASTER VOLUME] slider to adjust the volume to an ap-

propriate level.

When youre ready to turn off the power, press the [POWER] switch again. Both the LCD display and the power lamp below the left end of the keyboard will turn off.

Connect a set of stereo headphones (optional) to the [PHONES] jack. When headphones are connected, the internal speaker system is auto- matically shut off. Since the Clavinova has two PHONES jacks, two sets of headphones can be used simultaneously, allowing two people to enjoy listening to the performance.

Standard stereo phone jacks

Your Clavinova is equipped with a variety of jacks and terminals that let you connect it to other audio and MIDI equipment. These connectors are located at the left end of the unit on the rear panel.

You can connect other instruments that you want to play through the Clavinovas speakers to the AUX IN jacks, or output the Clavinovas sound to external speakers using the AUX OUT jacks. Use the MIDI terminals if you want the Clavinova to control or be controlled by another MIDI instrument. Theres even a TO HOST terminal that lets you connect the Clavinova directly to a personal computer.

Be sure to turn the power off when connecting or disconnecting other equipment. See the instructions in Chapter 9 of this manual for details.

You will refer to the LCD display frequently as you operate your Clavinova. This section consists of a short tutorial that will help you learn how to read the LCD display and use the related controls.

Many of the Clavinovas functions are displayed at the bottom of the LCD. The main display shown below contains two functions: KBD VOL and RIGHT1 VOICE. These items are displayed in rounded rectangles, which means they represent settings that can be changed.

Selecting a Function

Main display Remember, the main display is the dis- play that appears first when you turn the power on.

Before you can change a functions setting, however, you have to select it first. In the main display, the RIGHT1 VOICE function is highlighted, indi- cating that this function is currently selected.

Highlighted items Selected items are highlighted (i.e., white letters on a dark background).

To select a function, press and quickly release the LCD button directly below that function. For example, you can select KBD VOL by pressing the leftmost LCD button. LCD buttons

The five LCD buttons under the LCD display represent different functions, depending on the contents of the display.

CHAPTER 2: Basic Operation Using the LCD Display Controls

Press to select.

17CVP-103

There are several ways to change a functions value. Here are two of the main ways:

Using the data dial or [] and [+] buttons .................................

Once you have selected a function, you can change its setting with the data dial or the [] and [+] buttons. Since you have just selected KBD VOL, try turning the dial or pressing the [] button until it reads 0.

Changing a Setting

You can press the [] and [+] buttons repeatedly to change the value a little, or hold them down to change it quickly.

The KBD VOL function sets the keyboard volume. When you set it to 0, you will find that the keyboard wont produce any sound, no matter how high you set the [MASTER VOLUME] slider!

Refer to page 23 for details on the KBD VOL function.

Using the LCD buttons..................................................................................

You can also increase a setting by simply pressing and holding the corresponding LCD button. For now, since youll want to hear your key- board later on, press and hold the leftmost LCD button until the value for KBD VOL is back up to 127.

This is why you should release the LCD button quickly when you select a func- tion: you could end up raising its value when you want to lower it!

Once youve got the keyboard volume back where it belongs, you can learn about a couple of other ways to change settings.

Hold down to increase.

You can use either of the methods described previously to change the current voice selection. Just press RIGHT1 VOICE and hold the button down, or use the data dial or the [+] button to scan through the options. Try listening to a few of the voices while youre at it

Changing a Setting in a Menu Display

Voice A voice is one of the sounds the Clavinova uses to make music.The problem with this method is that it can be hard to find the voice youre looking

for after all, the Clavinova has more than 600 voices! So youll probably want to use a menu display to see what your choices are. Try pressing the [PIANO] button now.

When you press one of the VOICE buttons, the LCD displays a new set of functions listing the voices of that type. You should now be looking at a menu of piano voices.

Using the LCD buttons.................................................................................................

Each piano voice in this display is listed as a separate function in a rounded rectan- gle. This means that you can use the LCD buttons to select voices, just like you did to select the KBD VOL and RIGHT1 VOICE functions at the beginning of this tutorial.

Menu displays You will use menu displays for only two purposes: to select a voice, as shown here, or to select an accompaniment style (page 49).

Keep in mind that you can use the data dial or [] and [+] buttons to select functions only when viewing a menu display. In other displays, these controls will change the value of the currently selected function instead.

Try selecting different piano voices in this display before you move on to the next step.

Using the LCD Display Controls

Refer to page 29 for more details about selecting voices.

Use the data dial or [] and [+] buttons to select a voice.

Using the data dial or [] and [+] buttons................................................

There is another way to select voices in this display. You can use the data dial or the [] and [+] buttons to change the selection. Press [] or turn the data dial counterclockwise to select a voice to the left; press [+] or turn the dial clockwise to select a voice to the right.

Press an LCD button to select the corresponding voice.

As you were trying out the piano voices in the preceding step, you may have been surprised to see all the voice names suddenly replaced by an entirely different set of voices. Specifically, this occurs when you select the rightmost voice in the display (Midi Grand), then turn the data dial clockwise or press the [+] button.

Displaying a Different Page

Display pages Some displays are divided into two or more pages, indicated by a series of overlapping boxes in the upper right corner of the display. The number in the topmost box is the number of the current display page.

This happens because the CVP-103 has more piano voices than it can fit in the display. When one of the Clavinovas features includes more functions than will fit in the display, the functions are divided among two or more display pages. The VOICE SELECT Piano display consists of two display pages, as shown below:

When a display is divided into pages, you can use PAGE buttons to change pages. Try it: press the [<] button to see page 1, or the [>] but- ton to see page 2. Once you have displayed the desired page, you can use the LCD buttons select a voice in that page as described in the preceding step.

Refer to page 138 for details about the functions on the FUNCTION [PEDAL] display page.

PAGE

Use the PAGE buttons to switch between pages.

After you have changed a functions value, you may find you want to restore its basic setting. To demonstrate this, well have to look at another of the Clavinovas displays. Press the [FUNCTION] button.

Resetting a Functions Value

Basic settings The functions of the Clavinova are set

to certain standard values or standard conditions when the instrument is shipped. These settings and conditions are called the basic settings.

A functions basic settings are gener- ally noted in the sidebar together with the possible settings for that function.

You can also use the Recall function (page 153) to restore basic settings at any time.

This button calls up one of the Clavinovas FUNCTION displays. You can use this display to tune and transpose the keyboard.

Refer to page 136 for details on the TUNE and TRANSPOSE functions.

The TUNE function in this display corresponds to two LCD buttons labeled and . You can use these buttons to tune the keyboard up or down. Press and hold the button (or use the data dial or the [] button) to tune the keyboard down as far as it will go.

If you look at the upper right corner of the LCD, youll notice that the FUNCTION display consists of several display pages. Press the PAGE [>] key once to open the next page, which is titled FUNCTION [KEYBOARD 2]. Well use the functions on this page to discuss the next operation.

In addition to the FIXED VELOCITY function, which is selected in this display, the FUNCTION [KEYBOARD 2] page has two functions in normal rectangles: KEY TOUCH and VOICE SETTING. Such functions cannot be selected; instead, pressing the corresponding LCD button changes the setting directly without selecting the function.

Using Functions in Non-rounded Rectangles

Using the LCD Display Controls

The FIXED VELOCITY function is de- scribed on page 137.

1 8

If you play a few notes, youll notice that your Clavinova is flat by quite a bit. Now, lets assume that you want to reset the keyboard to the standard 440.0 Hz. You could use the button (or the data dial, or the [+] button) to return the value to its basic setting but theres an easier way:

When a function has a basic setting, you can reset it to that value by pressing both the and buttons (or both the [] and [+] buttons) simul- taneously. Try doing this now.

There are some functions whose settings cannot be returned to the basic value by pressing the and buttons (or [] and [+] buttons) simultaneously.

When youve got the keyboard back in tune, youre ready to go on to the next operation.

21CVP-103

By pressing the LCD button under KEY TOUCH, for example, you can set the Clavinovas response to how hard you play. The value displayed in the rectangle switches from NORMAL to SOFT, then FIXED, then HARD but the FIXED VELOCITY function remains selected.

For more details on the KEY TOUCH function, refer to page 137.

The VOICE SETTING function determines whether reverb, chorus, effect, and other settings are automatically selected when a voice is se- lected. It works a little differently: when you press the LCD button, the highlighted setting switches between AUTO and MANUAL. Still, FIXED VELOCITY remains selected.

To exit the current display, press the [EXIT] button.

Exiting to the Main Display

You can usually use [EXIT] to get back to the main display. In some cases, how- ever, this button will return you to a previ- ous setting display instead. When this happens, pressing [EXIT] again will get you back to the main display.The main display should show the name of the last piano voice that you

selected in the VOICE SELECT Piano display.

Using the LCD Display Controls

For more details on the VOICE SETTING function, refer to page 137.

There are other sorts of functions that are displayed in non-rounded rectangles, like the ones you used to select a demo song in Demo mode (see page 14). The important thing to remember about these functions is that you dont select them, you execute them.

Now were ready to return to the main display. First, however, set the KEY TOUCH and VOICE SETTING functions back to NORMAL and AUTO, respectively.

EXIT

The last function we need to discuss is Direct Access. The [DIRECT AC- CESS] button lets you jump directly to pages with particularly useful settings. When you press [DIRECT ACCESS], the Press a button to display corresponding settings message will appear in the LCD display.

A Word about Messages

For ease of operation, the Clavinova displays various messages (like the message displayed by the Direct Access function as described above) that either prompt you to the next operation, ask for confirmation, or in- form you that the last operation is not effective, valid, or appropriate. When such messages appear, follow the instructions as shown. For details about each message, please refer to the Messages section on page 165.

Saving Your Changes

Now that youve started learning how to change the Clavinovas settings, you may be wondering whether it will remember the changes youve made even after youve turned the power off. The answer is yes but you need to tell it which settings you want it to remember.

By default, the Clavinova will not remember most of your setting changes. You have two ways to tell it which settings you want to remember:

You can register your settings with the Registration function (page 89). Once you have registered your settings, you can restore them at any time by pressing a couple of buttons.

You can instruct the Clavinova to remember certain settings when the power is off, and recall these set- tings when you turn the power back on. To do this, you need to change the settings of the Backup function (page 152).

Using the LCD Display Controls

The Clavinova has two sliders that let you adjust the overall volume and the accompaniment or song playback volume. There are also settings that you can use to adjust the keyboard volume and the volume of each part of the automatic accompaniment or song.

Adjusting the Overall Volume

Use the [MASTER VOLUME] slider to set the overall volume of the Clavinova.

The [MASTER VOLUME] slider also determines the output level of the signal at the [PHONES] jack.

Signals input to the AUX IN jacks are also affected by the [MASTER VOL- UME] setting; however, signals output via the AUX OUT jacks are not.

Use the [ACMP/SONG VOL- UME] slider to set the playback volume of the automatic accompa- niment and songs.

Adjusting the Accompaniment or Song Volume

This control has no effect on the volume of your keyboard performance.

Select KBD VOL in the main display, then use the data dial or the [] and [+] buttons to change the keyboard volume.

Using the Pedals

The Clavinova has three pedals.

Certain voices in the [PERCUSSION] and [XG] groups may not be affected by use of the damper pedal.

Some voices may sound continuously or have a long decay after the notes have been released while the damper pedal is held.

If you play a note or chord on the keyboard and press the sostenuto pedal while the note(s) are held, those notes will be sustained as long as the pedal is held, 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.

Certain voices in the [PERCUSSION] and [XG] groups may not be affected by use of the sostenuto pedal.

Certain voices, such as [STRINGS] or [BRASS], sustain continuously when the sostenuto pedal is pressed.

The damper pedal performs the same function as the damper pedal on an actual acoustic piano, letting you sustain the sound of the voices even after releasing the keys.

Damper Pedal (Right)

Sostenuto Pedal (Center)

Soft Pedal (Left)

Pressing this pedal reduces the volume and slightly changes the timbre of the notes you play.

You can also assign one of many other functions to this pedal; for exam- ple, you can use it to start/stop the Automatic Accompaniment, or use it to play Fill Ins. See page 138 for details.

The effect of the soft pedal may differ slightly depending on the selected voice.

To apply reverb to the keyboard part(s), press the [REVERB] button.

Reverb is an effect that recreates the acoustic ambiance of a performance space anything from a room in a jazz club to a concert hall. The Clavinova lets you choose from a variety of reverb effects; you can also set the depth of any reverb effect to your preference.

Because the basic setting of the reverb type depends on the accompa- niment style, the reverb type may change automatically when you select a different style.

The reverb type selection affects all voices played by the keyboard or Auto Accompaniment. Different settings cannot be made for each part.

Depending on the selected voice, the depth of the effect may sound stronger or weaker, even though the same reverb type is selected.

The reverb effect cannot be applied to the sounds input through the AUX IN [R] and [L/L+R] jacks.

It is also possible to apply reverb ef- fects to the keyboard voices using the [EFFECT] button. See the Effect Type List on page 46 for details.

Unlike the reverb (page 41) and other effects (page 46), which can be turned on or off using the appropriate panel buttons, the chorus feature is always considered to be on. How chorus is applied to any given voice depends on the current chorus type and depth settings. You can change these settings using the functions in the CHORUS display page.

Chorus The Clavinovas chorus effects let you modify the voices you play from the keyboard, adding warmth for an even richer sound. Flanger effects add pronounced modulation, for a spacy futuris- tic quality. You can choose from a variety of chorus and flanger effects, and set the depth of the effect added to each keyboard voice.

Displaying the Chorus Settings........................................................

Z Press [DIRECT ACCESS], then [REVERB].

The LCD displays either the REVERB page or the REVERB DEPTH page (whichever was selected most recently).

X Press the PAGE [>] button once or twice, as needed. You can also press [DIRECT AC-

CESS] followed by [EFFECT], then use the PAGE [<] button to display the CHORUS page from either the EF- FECT page or the EFFECT DEPTH page.

Refer to the other sections of this chapter for details on reverb and other effect settings.

Press PAGE [>] twice if the REVERB page was displayed, or once if the REVERB DEPTH page was displayed.

The CHORUS page is displayed.

Chorus Type Settings: See table on page 162. Basic setting: Depends on style.

You can change the chorus type selection in the CHORUS page. Use the CHORUS and buttons to change the chorus type, or

select the CHORUSfunction and use the data dial or the [] and [+] but- tons.

Chorus

The selected chorus type is highlighted.

Because the basic setting of the chorus type depends on the accompa- niment style, the chorus type may change automatically when you select a different style.

The chorus type selection affects all keyboard parts. Different settings cannot be made for each part.

Depending on the selected voice, the depth of the effect may sound stronger or weaker, even though the same chorus type is selected.

It is also possible to apply chorus effects to the keyboard voices using the [EFFECT] button. See the Effect Type List on page 46 for details.

Setting the Chorus Depth for Each Part ...................................

The other settings in the CHORUS page let you set the chorus depth separately for each part you play from the keyboard.

Z Select a part.

Press LEFT, RIGHT1, or RIGHT2 to set the chorus depth for the corresponding keyboard part.

You can also select several parts at once and adjust their settings simultaneously.

The selected function is highlighted.

X Set the chorus depth. Chorus Depth functions Range: 0 (no effect) 127 (max.) Basic setting: Depends on voice.

Set the chorus depth for the highlighted part by using the data dial or [] and [+] buttons.

You can also advance a value by pressing the corresponding LCD button. To reset a value to its basic setting, simultaneously press the [] and [+] buttons.

Because the basic settings of the chorus depth functions depend on the voices selected, a chorus depth setting may change automatically when you select a different voice.

Since the chorus feature is always on, you should set a chorus depth of 0 for any parts that you dont want affected by the chorus effect.

The LCD displays either the EFFECT page or the EFFECT DEPTH page (whichever was used most recently).

Voice Effects The Clavinova has a variety of effects besides reverb and chorus that you can use to enhance the sound of the voices or create wild, special effects. You can adjust the depth of the effect as desired.

To apply the effect to the keyboard parts, press the [EFFECT] button.

Turning the Effects On

Effect ON/OFF Basic setting: Depends on voice.

The lamp lights. When the effect system is also used by an accompaniment style or song, the effect being applied to the keyboard part(s) may automatically be turned off when you start the Auto Accompaniment or select the song for playback, depend- ing on the effect type selected by the style or song. If this happens, you may be able to apply the effect to the key- board part(s) by pressing the [EFFECT] button - again, this depends on the se- lected effect type. If you do so, the effect will not be applied to voices played by the Auto Accompaniment or song.

To turn the effect off, press [EFFECT] again.

The lamp turns off.

Because the basic setting of the [EFFECT] button depends on the voice, the effect may turn on or off automatically when you select a dif- ferent voice.

Changing the Effect Settings

You can change the current effect type and depth using the EFFECT and EFFECT DEPTH display pages.

\ Displaying the Effect Settings .............................................................

Z Press [DIRECT ACCESS], then [EFFECT]. If you press the [<] button while the EFFECT page is showing, the CHORUS page will be displayed. Refer to the first two sections of this chapter for details on reverb and chorus settings.

CHAPTER 5: Accompaniment Styles

Selecting Accompaniment Styles The Clavinova has a wide variety of musical styles that you can use for simple percussion accompaniment, or as the basis of a fully orchestrated accompaniment including bass and rhythm parts using the Auto Accompaniment feature (page 57). There is also a selection of Pianist styles that let you play with piano accompaniment when you activate the Auto Accompaniment.

Selecting a Style

Style Types Rhythm styles: 125 Pianist styles: 35 Custom styles: 4

* For information on the styles, see the Style List on page 12 in the Refer- ence Booklet.

* The Clavinovas styles are divided into eleven groups, corresponding to the eleven STYLE buttons on the panel.

* The PIANIST styles and Guitar Waltz in the TRAD/WALTZ style group do not include drum sounds. Use the Auto Accompaniment (page 58) to play these styles.

Z Select an accompaniment style group. .....................................

Disk and Custom Styles The [DISK/CUSTOM] button lets you use styles on optional Style File Disks (page 86) or your original styles (page 73) .

Select the desired style group by pressing the appropriate STYLE button.

The corresponding STYLE SELECT display appears. The last selected style in each group

can be retained in memory, even after turning off the power, when the Backup function (page 152) is set to ON.

When the power is turned on, the 8 Beat 1 style is automatically selected. However, if the Backup function (page 152) is set to ON, the last selected style will be selected instead.

Accompaniment styles cannot be selected in the Song Play mode page 93.

Each of the Clavinovas styles has four variations, corresponding to the AUTO ACCOMPANIMENT buttons labeled as [MAIN A], [MAIN B], [MAIN C], and [MAIN D].

Varying the Style

Use these buttons to select style variations.

Main A is generally the most rudimentary form of the style; the other variations are more or less lavish embellishments on the same basic theme. By judiciously switching between variations as you play, you can add variety and make the performance more interesting.

Selecting a Variation ........................................................................................

You can select a style variation before you start playing the style. To select a variation, simply press the corresponding button.

The Clavinova will begin playing the selected style variation when you start the style using one of the methods described in the next section.

Playing Fill-in Patterns ..................................................................................

Fill-in patterns A fill-in pattern is a embellishment of the basic rhythm, usually played at the end of a musical phrase as an exciting transition into the next segment.

If you select a different style variation while the style is playing, the Clavinova will play an automatic fill-in pattern as it switches to the new variation. The fill-in pattern, like the main pattern, is different for each variation.

The buttons lamp lights.

To change the variation while the style is playing, press the button corresponding to the new variation. Using the Pedals

You can also use the left pedal to pause the style or play a special fill-in pattern by setting the LEFT PEDAL function (page 138) to BREAK or BREAK FIL.

The buttons lamp flashes as the Clavinova plays the fill-in pattern.

Generally speaking, the Clavinova will start the fill-in pattern soon after you press the button. If you select a variation after the last eighth note of a measure, however, it will begin the fill-in pattern from the start of the next measure.

When the fill-in pattern is finished, the buttons lamp lights steadily as the Clavinova plays the main pattern.

The auto fill-in feature provides an exciting transition as you switch from one variation to another. If Main A is playing and you press [MAIN B], for example, the Clavinova will play Fill-in B, then start playing Main B.

You can also play fill-in patterns without selecting a different variation. Just press the button for the variation that is playing. The Clavinova will play the fill-in for that variation, then return to the main pattern.

More Fun With Fill-ins ....................................................................................

Changing the Fill-in It is possible to switch variations while a fill-in pattern is playing. The Clavinova will switch to the fill-in pattern for the new variation, then continue with the new main pattern as usual.

Repeating the Fill-in If you hold down the flashing button, or press it after the last eighth note of the measure while the fill-in pattern is playing, the fill-in pat- tern will be repeated.

Canceling the Fill-in If you press the flashing button earlier than the last eighth note of the measure while the fill-in pattern is playing, the Clavinova will stop playing the fill-in pattern and continue with the main pattern.

Starting the Accompaniment Style

There are several ways to start the accompaniment style, as described below:

Standard Start .........................................................................................................

This is the simplest way to start a style. If necessary, select a variation as described on page 51, then press the [START/STOP] button.

Using the Pedals You can also use the left pedal to start and stop the style by setting the LEFT PEDAL function (page 138) to START/ STOP.

The lamp lights and the style starts.

Beat Indicator During style playback, the leftmost beat lamp (red) flashes on the first beat of each measure, and the other lamps (green) flash for each successive beat. The current tempo and measure number are shown at the left edge of the main display.

Synchronized Start ............................................................................................

This method lets you start the style by simply playing a note or chord on the keyboard.

Z Set the Synchronized Start function.

If the [SYNCHRO] button is pressed while a style is playing, style playback stops and Synchronized Start is auto- matically set to stand-by.

When you play the keyboard in Split mode (page 36) or use the Auto Ac- companiment in a mode other than FULL KEYBOARD (page 61), only the left-hand section of the keyboard will trigger a synchronized start.

If necessary, select a variation as described on page 51, then press the [SYNCHRO] button.

X Start playing. To cancel the Synchronized Start func- tion before you start the style, press the [SYNCHRO] button again.

When you are ready, play a note on the keyboard. The style starts playing when you play the first note.

The [SYNCHRO] lamp turns off, the [START/STOP] lamp lights, and the style starts.

Tap Start ........................................................................................................................

This function lets you set the tempo and start the style in one opera- tion.

If necessary, select a variation as described on page 51, then tap the [TAP] button at the desired tempo. Tap four times for 2- and 4-beat styles, three times for 3-beat styles, and five times for 5-beat styles.

If you do not tap the [TAP] button the required number of times (i.e., 3 times for a 3-beat style), the Tap Start function will be canceled after a few seconds.

The [TAP] button can also be used to change the tempo during style playback (by tapping the button twice). In this case the tap click will not sound.

When playing a 4-beat style Tap 4 times.

The Clavinova includes a sophisticated Auto Accompaniment system that can provide automated rhythm, bass and chord backing for your performance in 125 different styles, as well as 35 different types of piano-only accompaniment.

The Auto Accompaniment playback data is normally not output by the MIDI [OUT] terminal. To send the Auto Accompaniment data to another MIDI instrument, use the ACMP&RHY and HARMONY functions in the FUNCTION [MIDI 4] display described on page 150.

You can use one of several methods to indicate the chords that are to be played by the Auto Accompaniment. Choose the accompaniment mode that best suits your playing style.

Using the Auto Accompaniment

Detailed explanations of each accompa- niment mode are given on pages 60 and 61.

Single Finger The Single Finger method makes it easy to obtain accompaniment in

major, seventh, minor, and minor-seventh chords by pressing certain keys (according to simple rules) to the left of the split point indicated by the keyboard guide lamp. (See page 60.)

Multi Finger When you select the Multi Finger mode, you can use either the Single

Finger method or the Fingered 1 method to indicate chords for the ac- companiment. (See page 60.)

Fingered 1 The Fingered 1 method lets you control the Auto Accompaniment by

playing full chords to the left of the split point. (See page 60.)

Fingered 2 This mode accepts the same fingerings as the Fingered 1 mode, with

the exception that the lowest note played to the left of the split point is used as the bass root (in Fingered 1 mode, the root of the chord is always used as the bass root). Hence, you can select this mode to play on bass or fraction chords. (See page 61.)

Full Keyboard The Full Keyboard mode automatically produces appropriate auto-

matic accompaniment for virtually anything you play, anywhere on the keyboard. (See page 61.)

The same accompaniment continues (even after you release the chord in the left range) until you play the next chord.

Single Finger Chords The following four chord types can be played in Single Finger mode:

The illustration below shows the key corresponding to each root note.

Major Press the root note of the chord.

Minor [m] Simultaneously press the root note of the chord and any black key to the left of it.

Seventh [7] Simultaneously press the root note of the chord and any white key to the left of it.

Minor Seventh [m7] Simultaneously press the root note of the chord and any white and black keys to the left of it (three keys at once).

Two-note fingerings will produce a chord based on the previously played chord.

Fingered 1 To control the Auto Accompaniment, play any chord in the left range

of the keyboard (below and including the split point). Play the melody in the right range along with the Auto Accompaniment.

The automatic accompaniment will sometimes not change when related chords are played in sequence (e.g. some minor chords followed by the minor seventh).

If the Clavinova cannot recognize a chord you play, an asterisk * will appear instead of the chord name in the display.

Drums-only accompaniment can be produced by pressing any three con- secutive keys (e.g., C, C#, D) simulta- neously. This lets you create dynamic drum breaks in the accompaniment. A series of dashes - - - will appear instead of a chord name in the display.

Multi Finger This method allows you to control the Auto Accompaniment using

either the Single Finger method (described above) or the Fingered 1 method (described below). However, when indicating minor, seventh or minor seventh chords, it is necessary to play the white key and/or black key nearest the root note of the chord.

Playing with the Auto Accompaniment

Fingered 2 To control the Auto Accompaniment, play chords in the left range of

the keyboard as for Fingered 1. In this mode, however, the lowest note you play in the will be used as the bass root, as shown at right.

Chords in Fingered 2 mode The Clavinova will recognize the same chord types as listed above for Fingered 1 mode.

Although Full Keyboard mode is designed to work with many types of music, some arrangements may not be suitable for use with this feature.

Chord detection occurs at approxi- mately 8th-note intervals. Extremely short chords less than an 8th note in length may not be detected.

Keep in mind You can use the Dual and Split modes together with the Auto Accompaniment.

Press the SYNCHRO STOP button to turn the function on.

This function can only be turned on if the Auto Accompaniment is on and Full Keyboard mode is not selected.

The SYNCHRO STOP function is highlighted, and the [SYNCHRO] lamp lights.

The Auto Accompaniment automatically starts when you play in the left range of the keyboard, and stops when you release it. This is useful for beginning players who

have difficulty playing in precise time. It is also effective for creating accompani- ment breaks during the performance.

To turn the function off, press SYNCHRO STOP again.

Getting Help With Chords .........................................................................

The CHORD ASSIST function in the ACCOMPANIMENT MODE display uses the keyboard guide lamps to show you appropriate fingerings for chords.

Chord Assistance The Chord Assistance feature is essen- tially an electronic chord book that shows you appropriate fingerings for chords; it is useful when you want to quickly learn how to play certain chords. Simply specify the desired chord via the display, and the fingerings for the Fin- gered 1 method are indicated by the keyboard guide lamps.

Z Turn the Chord Assistance function on.

If the [ACMP ON] button is off, it will turn on.

If the split point is set below F#2, it will automatically be reset to F#2.

The keyboard guide lamps do not indicate the split point when Chord Assistance is on, since they are used to indicate chord fingerings instead.

Press the CHORD ASSIST button.

The CHORD ASSIST display appears, and the accompaniment mode automatically changes to Fingered 1.

V Set the value or depth of the selected parameter. The reverb type used for the custom

style are determined by the style that was selected as the basis for custom style creation.

Normally the VALUE and chorus TYPE settings from the preset style are ini- tially selected. If the PART function is set to ALL, the preset values for part R1 are displayed. If the SECTION function is set to ALL, the preset val- ues for MAIN A are displayed.

The word OTHERS may appear as the chorus type if the preset style uses a chorus type other than those in the list. The OTHERS setting cannot be re- selected once you select a different chorus type.

The VALUE (or DEPTH) function displayed above the rightmost LCD button sets the amount or depth for the parameter selected in step 2. When VOLUME is selected, the SECTION setting is fixed at ALL and the VALUE range is from 50 to +50 (this value is relative to the preset volume of the source style). When the REVERB or CHO- RUS parameter is selected, the DEPTH can be set in a range from 0 to 127. When PAN is selected, the VALUE function can be set in a range from L10 (full left) to C (center) to R10 (full right).

B Repeat as necessary.

Repeat the preceding steps to set other parameters for each part and section in the custom style.

Saving Styles to Disk ...................................................................................

Page 5 of the CUSTOM STYLE display lets you save custom styles on a disk. You can save custom styles individually, or in a complete set of up to four styles.

After inserting a properly formatted disk (page 111) in the Clavinovas disk drive, use the MEMORY No. and buttons to select the custom style you want to save to disk, or select ALL to save a complete set of up to four custom styles. When this is done, press the SAVE LCD button to start saving the data to disk. At this point the SAVE display appears.

Enter a name for the style file. The procedure for entering the filename is the same as that used to enter a name for a custom style (page 140). Press SAVE when the name has been entered. If a file with the same name already exists, the Same name! Overwrite? mes- sage will be displayed. Press OK to overwrite the existing file, or CAN- CEL to abort the save operation.

Once created, your original custom styles can be selected for play- back by pressing the [DISK/CUSTOM] button, then using the STYLE and LCD buttons, the data dial, or the [] and [+] buttons to select the custom style you want to play. The selected style can then be played in exactly the same way as the preset styles (page 51).

Playing Back Your Custom Styles

Since only one intro pattern, one fill-in pattern, and one ending pattern can be recorded for each custom style, no intro, fill-in, or ending variations are produced during playback.

The following messages may appear when creating and storing a style in Custom Style mode.

Memory Full During Recording .........................................................

This message will be displayed if the memory becomes full during recording or editing.

Messages in Custom Style Mode

Press OK to return to the CUSTOM STYLE display, then simplify the style by clearing a part, etc.

Insufficient Memory To Store ..............................................................

This message will be displayed if there is not enough memory to per- form a store operation.

In this case it will be necessary to either delete a style you dont need, or simplify the style you are currently recording. Press CANCEL to re- turn to the CUSTOM STYLE display and simplify the current style (by clearing a part, etc.), or DELETE to delete one or more styles.

If you select the DELETE function, the Select style to de- lete message will be displayed:

The amount of memory being used by each style is displayed next to the style name (in approximate kilobytes). You can refer to this amount to judge how much memory (out of the total 100 KB) will become available when a particular style is deleted.

Creating Your Own Styles

85CVP-103

Use the MEMORY No. and buttons to select the style you want to delete, then press OK to delete the style, or CANCEL to cancel the operation.

If the Clavinova displays the Cant delete this style! mes- sage when you try to delete a style, it is because you have tried to delete the style that your custom style was based on. If this happens, press OK to return to the Select style to delete display, then select a dif- ferent style to delete.

Exit Before Store ...............................................................................................

If you press [EXIT] button to exit the Custom Style mode before storing the style, the Clavinova will display a message like the one shown below:

Select a memory number and press YES to store the style and exit, press NO to exit without storing the style, or press CANCEL to return to the Custom Style mode.

Style Change Before Store.....................................................................

If you want to select a different source style without storing the current style, exit the Custom Style mode without storing the style (see Exit Before Store above), then re-enter the Custom Style mode.

If you attempt to select a different source style before storing the style youve just edited, the following display will appear:

Select a memory number and press OK to store the style and select a new source style, or press CANCEL to return to the Custom Style mode.

You can load and play style files created in the Style File Format either from optional Yamaha Style File disks, or from disks containing custom style files youve created yourself.

Using Style Files

The Style File Format is Yamahas original auto-accompaniment for- mat, which has evolved through years of development and refinement. The Style File Format features a unique conversion system that allows you to play exceptionally high-quality accompaniments with a variety of chord types. In addition to the internal styles, the Style File Format lets you use other sophisticated styles from optional Style File disks, as well as styles that were created and saved to disk in the Custom Style mode.

About the Yamaha Style File Format

Style files created for Clavinova models prior to the CVP-103 may have slightly different formats. If you try loading such files, the data may not play back as expected. (This also applies to the use of CVP-103 style data by earlier-model Clavinovas.)

Loading Styles from a Disk

Z Insert a disk. ...........................................................................................................

If a disk containing both song data and style files is inserted, the SONG PLAY display will automatically appear. If this happens, press the [SONG] button or the [EXIT] button to return to the main dis- play, then press the [DISK/CUSTOM] button.

Insert a disk containing style files into the disk drive. The [DISK IN USE] lamp will light briefly while the Clavinova reads and identifies the disk. When a Style File disk is inserted, the STYLE FILE LOAD display (see step 2 below) will appear automatically.

If the disk is already inserted and the STYLE FILE LOAD display is not showing, press the [DISK/CUSTOM] button to open the DISK/ CUSTOM STYLE display, then press the LOAD SINGLE button.

DISK IN USE

To load a set of four style files that was created by selecting ALL as the memory number when the files were saved in Custom Style mode (see page 82), press the ALL LOAD LCD button rather than the LOAD SINGLE button.

8 4

87CVP-103

X Select a style file. ..............................................................................................

If a tempo is set prior to loading the style, that tempo becomes the default for the loaded style.

Some styles are too large to preview with the LISTEN function. In this case the Too much data for LISTEN func- tion! Please load data. message will be displayed. If this happens, load the style directly as in step 4.

The Auto Accompaniment is automati- cally turned on when the LOAD SIN- GLE button is pressed, and the style is played back automatically with the Auto Accompaniment in C Major when the LISTEN LCD button is pressed. You can change the chord or try play- ing on the keyboard while previewing a style.

Select the desired style using the data dial or the [] and [+] buttons. You can preview the selected style by pressing the LISTEN LCD

button. (The LISTEN function is not available in the ALL LOAD dis- play.) To stop listening, press the LISTEN LCD button again, or press the [START/STOP] button.

If the selected memory number already contains a style, the name of that style will appear above the MEMORY and LOAD functions in the display. The existing style will be overwritten when a new style is loaded. (One pre-pro- grammed temporary style is automati- cally loaded into the [DISK/CUSTOM] memory whenever the power is turned on.)

Use the MEMORY LCD button to select the memory number to which the selected style file is to be loaded (1 through 4), then press the LOAD LCD button to load the style file.

Repeat steps 2 and 3 to select and load other style files.

Using Style Files

C Select a memory number and load the style. ....................

It is not necessary to select a memory number when ALL LOAD is selected in step 1. Simply press OK to load or CANCEL to abort.

If there is not enough memory to load the specified style file, the Not enough memory! Delete an unneeded style? mes- sage will be displayed. In this case it will be necessary to delete a style you dont need before loading the new style. Use the MEMORY No. and buttons to select the number of the style you want to delete, then press DELETE to delete the style, or CANCEL to abort.

The ALL LOAD display is as follows:

When ALL LOAD is executed, all data in the four memories will be replaced by new data.

The amount of memory being used by each style is displayed next to the style name (in approximate kilobytes). You can refer to this amount to judge how much memory (out of the total 100 KB) will become available when a particular style is deleted.

CHAPTER 7: Song Control Song Playback

The Clavinova can play back songs recorded using the Song Record function (page 110), as well as song data included on various commercially available software disks. You can also play along on the keyboard as the songs play back. Moreover, when song data software includes lyrics, you can view the lyrics in the display during playback.

See Handling the Floppy Disk Drive (FDD) and Floppy Disks (page 9) for information on using floppy disks.

The Clavinova can play back up to 99 songs recorded on a single disk. Any songs exceeding this number will not be available for playback.

Playback data is normally not output via MIDI. However, you can set the Clavinova to output song data using the Song Transmission func- tion in the FUNCTION [MIDI 4] display (page 150).

In addition to songs youve recorded yourself, the CVP-103 can play back commercially available disks of Yamaha DOC software, XG soft- ware, and Disklavier PianoSoft as well as GM software. See Playing Other Types of Music Data on page 104.

Consult your Yamaha dealer for information on song data that is com- patible with the Lyric Display function of the Clavinova.

Z Enter the Song Play mode. .................................................................

Gently insert the included Music Software Collection disk or a disk containing songs youve recorded yourself into the disk drive. Make sure to insert the disk face up in correct direction, as shown in the illustration, until it clicks into place. The Song Play mode is auto- matically called up when a song disk is inserted in the disk drive.

About Compatible Software..................................................................

The CVP-103 can play back the following types of software.

Sequence formats: SMF (format 0 and 1), ESEQ Voice allocation formats: GM System Level 1, XG, DOC

Refer to MIDI and Data Compatibility (page 172) for information on the voice allocation formats and sequence formats.

The internal tone generator of the CVP-103 automatically resets for compatibility with either the Yamaha XG format (including GM System Level 1) or the Yamaha DOC voice allocation (page 172), depending on the playback data. (However, the selected voice allocation on the panel will not change.)

Song Data Recorded on Other Instruments ........................

Song data recorded on other Clavinovas (CVP-50/70/55/65/75/83S/ 85A/87A/59S/69A/69/79A/89/92/94/96/98/600/109/107/105) will nor- mally be played back with the correct voices even though the volume balance may be slightly different. However, data recorded using the Auto Accompaniment function of the CVP-50/70 cannot be played back prop- erly.

Song data recorded on the Yamaha Disklavier can also be played back.

Regardless of the type of software, only the following disk formats can be used: 3.5" 2DD 720 kilobyte format and 3.5" 2HD 1.44 megabyte format.

The Clavinova has a special Guide function which allows you to practice by using the appropriate disk software. The piano roll display and the keyboard guide lamp indicate which keys you should play, and when you should play them. You can even practice at your own pace since the Clavinova pauses playback of the accompaniment until you play the correct keys. (You can try out the Guide function by pressing one of the GUIDE CON- TROL buttons during playback of the 4. GUIDE Demo song in the Demo mode.)

Guide Control

The Clavinova has three different Guide methods that can be selected depending on your playing experience or preferences. Beginning players should practice first with Easy Play, then go on to Next Note, then Sound Repeat.

Guide Methods and Piano Roll

FOLLOW LIGHTS and CueTIME software should be used with the Next Note method, as the Easy Play and Sound Repeat methods may not function properly with such software.

Practicing the Timing: Easy Play ....................................................

Since the Easy Play method lets you practice only the timing of the notes, you can play anywhere on the keyboard. The melody will play back smoothly when you play with the correct timing. (The accompani- ment plays back normally in tempo.)

Practicing the Notes: Next Note .......................................................

The Next Note method lets you check which notes to play by looking at the piano roll display and the keyboard guide lamps. Since the Clavinova waits to play the accompaniment until you play the correct note, you can practice at your own pace.

The keyboard guide lamps indicate the timing in which to play, by changing from lit-up to flashing.

If the guide lamps do not flash The guide lamps may not flash in the case of a few songs because of a special guide system. In case of such songs, however, you can switch to the Next Note method so that the lamps flash, if you like. See the Other Guide-related Func- tions on page 108. If the guide lamps and piano roll are transposed up or down The guide lamps and piano roll may be transposed up or down by one or two octaves for certain songs. The guide lamps and piano roll will not indicate notes exceeding the 88-key range of the keyboard.

Practicing Phrase-by-Phrase with the Playback: Sound Repeat .......................................................................................................

In the Sound Repeat method, the Clavinova plays back a short phrase. Listen to the phrase and practice.

As soon as you play the phrase correctly, the Clavinova will auto- matically play the next phrase.

Number of Repeats You can set the number of times the phrase will be repeated in the SONG PLAY [GUIDE MODE] display (display page 5). (See page 109.)

button, then press the [PLAY/STOP] button to start playback. A bar of the same length as the note to be played scrolls down from the top of the display toward the bottom. You should play the note at the time the bar reaches the bottom of the display. In order to play the note with the cor- rect duration, hold the note for as long as the bar remains in the display.

Piano Roll ON/OFF The piano roll display can be turned on or off from the SONG PLAY [GUIDE MODE] display (display page 5). (See page 109.)

Z Set up the desired song for practicing. ...................................

Check that the disk is properly inserted in the disk drive before call- ing up the Guide function.

Using the Guide Function

Before Practicing Before starting to practice, play back the entire song without canceling the part to be practiced and listen to it carefully. This will give you a clear idea of how the song should be played, and will make your practice sessions progress more smoothly.

Auto Part Cancel If you turn on the Guide function without canceling playback of the part to be practiced, 1/RIGHT part is guided (or the 2/LEFT part is guided when the 1/RIGHT part contains no data). However, when you cancel the part before turning on Guide, the setting will be kept until the song is changed.

Press the appropriate button 1/ RIGHT, 2/LEFT or ACMP&RHY to set the corresponding part to REC (recording enabled) or OFF (recording/playback disabled). The PLAY (playback) setting can be selected only for parts which already contain data.

The ACMP&RHY part can be set to REC automatically by pressing the panel [ACMP ON] button. To record only the rhythm, leave ACMP&RHY set to REC, then press the [ACMP ON] button so that the lamp goes out.

Both 1/RIGHT and 2/LEFT cannot be set to REC at the same time.

Recording the Harmony Parts The Clavinova will record harmony notes when you record with the Harmony function (page 69) turned on. If the harmony type is set to Duet, Trio, Block, 4 Part, Country, Octave, or 1+5, the harmony notes will be recorded in the selected track. When any other harmony type is selected, the harmony notes will be recorded in tracks 6 through 8.

Recording in Dual/Split Mode If you record the 1/RIGHT part in the Dual

mode, data is recorded to tracks 1 and 3. If you record the 1/RIGHT part in the Split

mode, data is recorded to tracks 1 and 5. If you record the 2/LEFT part in the Dual

mode, data is recorded to tracks 2 and 4. If you record the 2/LEFT part in the Split

mode, data is recorded to tracks 2 and 5. When the recording part is changed,

[HARMONY] and [SPLIT] are automati- cally turned off.

Recording the Auto Accompaniment When recording Auto Accompaniment,

the rhythm is recorded to tracks 9 through 10, bass to track 11, and chordal backing to tracks 12 through 16.

The Chord Sequence function (page 121) lets you record the Auto Accompaniment without having to play chord parts in tempo.

When any part is set to REC, the remain- ing capacity of the disk (in kilobytes) is shown to the right of the tempo indicator in the display. Empty 2DD and 2HD disks should have about 690 KB (about 69,000 notes) and 1400 KB (about 140,000 notes), respectively.

When the ACMP&RHY part is set to REC, the metronome will sound to provide a timing guide before recording is started.

Keyboard

FUNCTION [KEYBOARD 1] Display page 1

TUNE Range: 414.8 Hz 466.6 Hz

(102.1 +101.62 cents) Basic setting: 440 Hz

The Tune function lets you make fine adjustments to the pitch, allow- ing you to accurately match the tuning with that of other instruments. The frequency (in Hz) of A3 is displayed by the TUNE function. The tuning can be adjusted up or down a maximum of approximately 26 Hz (slightly over 100 cents) in 0.2-Hz steps. Hz and Cents

Pitch is measured in units of Hertz (abbreviated Hz), which represents the number of times the sound wave vi- brates in a second.

A cent is a unit of pitch equal to 1/100 of a semitone (100 cents = 1 semitone).

Tune has no effect on the Drum Kit voices.

The XG Master Tune setting is effec- tive when playing back songs contain- ing XG Master Tune data.

Transpose ....................................................................................................................

TRANSPOSE functions Range: 24 +24 semitones

(2 +2 octaves) Basic setting: 0

The Transpose functions make it possible to shift the pitch of the key- board or song data in semitone units, allowing you to match the pitch of the Clavinova to the range of other instruments or singers.

The Clavinova has two transpose functions: ALL and SONG. The former transposes all notes played by the Clavinova, whereas the latter transposes song data only. When you change the setting of the ALL func- tion, the SONG setting is also adjusted by the same amount.

The Transpose function does not affect the Drum Kit voices.

When playing back songs containing XG Transpose data, the XG Transpose data is effective only for the data play- back sound. The value set on the panel affects the keyboard sound.

The values set here affect playback data transmitted via MIDI.

When a Transpose function is set to a high value, notes played in the corre- sponding range at the upper end of the keyboard (e.g., C5 through C7 for a value of +24) may not sound as ex- pected. The same is true of notes at the lower end of the keyboard when a low Transpose value is set.

KEY TOUCH Settings: See table at left. Basic setting: NORMAL

FIXED VELOCITY Range: 1 127 Basic setting: 76

Key Touch & Fixed Velocity ......................................................................

FUNCTION [KEYBOARD 2] Display page 2

Velocity The amount of force applied to a key is

frequently referred to in this manual as velocity. This is because the Clavinova determines the amount of force that was applied to a key by measuring the speed with which the key was de- pressed.

This function does not affect the actual weight of the keys.

The Key Touch function determines how velocity affects the volume of the voices played by the Clavinovas keyboard. Select from four Key Touch settings to tailor the keyboard response to the selected voice, type of song, or your personal playing style. Press the KEY TOUCH button to change the setting. The data dial and [] and [+] buttons cannot be used.

Key Touch Settings

NORMAL This is the standard keyboard response and is used as the basic setting.

SOFT This setting lets you produce a relatively loud sound even when playing the keys softly.

FIXED This setting produces a uniform degree of loudness, no matter how forcefully or softly you play the keys. Use the FIXED VELOCITY function to set the loudness of notes produced by the keyboard.

HARD This setting requires you to play the keys quite strongly to produce maximum loudness

Voice Setting .............................................................................................................

VOICE SETTING Settings: AUTO, MANUAL Basic Setting: AUTO

This function determines whether the basic reverb, chorus, effect, and other settings for each voice are automatically selected when a voice is selected. Press the VOICE SETTING button to change the setting. When it is set to AUTO, the basic settings for each voice are automatically se- lected when the voice is selected; when it is set to MANUAL, the set- tings do not change when voices are selected.

Insert a 2DD disk containing the data to be converted in the disk drive.

X Select a data format.

Data Format Compatibility CVP-series Clavinovas other than the models listed in the table at left can play back song data recorded on the CVP-103 without conversion. If you are planning to use your song data on other instruments and want to ensure that they will closely reproduce the sound you achieved on the CVP-103, however, we recommend using XG voices (see page 30) for all tracks other than those that play piano voices.

Use either of the two leftmost LCD buttons to select the target format of the file (the type of instrument that will use the converted data). The following three types are available:

CVP PERFORMANCE This function converts data for playback on the CVP-50/70/55/65/75/83S/85A/87A/89, the DOM- 30, and the DOU-10.

PIANO FORMAT 1 This function converts data for playback on all Disklavier models except the MX100A and the MX100B.

PIANO FORMAT 2 This type converts the data for playback on the Disklavier MX100A or MX100B.

C Select the song to be converted.

Use the data dial or [] and [+] buttons to select the song number of the song to be converted.

The number and name of the selected song are displayed above the SONG function.

V Press the TRANSFORM button. The converted data is saved to a song

number between 1 and 60. (Song numbers above 60 are not used.)

The original data remains intact at the original song number even after the conversion has been executed.

Recording or editing cannot be per- formed on the converted songs.

An Are you sure? message is displayed. Press the YES button to convert the selected song, or NO to cancel the operation. When the conversion process is finished, a Completed! SONG No.** message indicates the song number to which the data was saved.

If CVP PERFORMANCE was selected in Step 2, the characters C) are appended to the beginning of the original name. If one of the other formats was selected, the characters P) are appended.

Disk Format ..............................................................................................................

Floppy disks must be correctly formatted before the Clavinova can use them for data storage. If you insert a new, unformatted disk (or a disk that has already been initialized in a different format) in the disk drive, the Clavinova will automatically ask you whether it should format the disk. (See page 111 for details.)

The Clavinova also has a Disk Format function that can be used to reformat disks that have already been formatted for use by the Clavinova. The reformatting operation deletes any data that may have been saved on the disk.

Z Insert the disk to be formatted.

Make sure that the disks write protect tab is set to the write posi- tion, and insert the disk into the disk drive face up with the shutter for- ward until it clicks into place.

Send Channel (Keyboard) .........................................................................

MIDI

FUNCTION [MIDI 1] Display page 9

SEND CH Settings: OFF, 1 16 Basic setting: See table at left.

In any MIDI control setup, the MIDI channels (1 through 16) of the transmitting and receiving equipment must be matched for proper data transfer. The SEND CH function lets you set the MIDI transmit channels for the keyboard parts.

Part Explanation Basic Setting

LEFT Left voice in Split mode (see page 36) 3

RIGHT1 Main voice 1

RIGHT2 Second voice in Dual mode (see page 33) 2

You can set each keyboard part to transmit on a separate channel. If you set a part to OFF, the MIDI data for that part will not be transmitted.

MIDI Reception The Clavinova always receives MIDI data in the Multi Timbre mode. This is a mode in which the

Clavinova voices can be independently controlled on different MIDI channel numbers (1 through 16) by an external MIDI device. This means that you can produce the sound of a full band or ensemble on the Clavinova by using a computer or MIDI sequencer.

Local Control ..........................................................................................................

LOCAL Settings: ON, OFF Basic setting: ON

The term local control refers to the control of the internal tone gen- erator by the keyboard. You will normally play the Clavinova with the Local Control function set to ON.

Turning off the local control separates the keyboard from the tone generator, so that the Clavinova will not output any sound when you play the keyboard. Since keyboard performance data is still output via the MIDI jacks, however, you can use this setting when you want to play an external MIDI tone generator from the Clavinovas keyboard without sounding the internal voices.

To turn the local control on or off, press the LOCAL button. The data dial and [] and [+] buttons cannot be used.

148 CVP-103

Synchronization....................................................................................................

MIDI

SYNC. Settings: INT. (internal clock),

EXT. (external clock) Basic setting: INT.

The playback tempo of a song or style is normally controlled by the Clavinovas internal clock. When you want the Clavinovas playback tempo to be controlled by an external sequencer or rhythm machine, you should set the synchronization function to use an external clock. You might use this function, for example, to play the Auto Accompaniment of the Clavinova in perfect synchronization with an external sequencer.

To switch the synchronization from an internal clock to an external clock (or vice versa), press the SYNC. button. The data dial and the [] and [+] buttons cannot be used.

MIDI Filter .................................................................................................................

The FUNCTION [MIDI 2] display contains MIDI filter settings that can be used to enable or prevent the transmission and reception of certain types of MIDI data.

FUNCTION [MIDI 2] Display page 10

Program Change Messages PROGRAM Settings: Tx&Rx (transmitted/received),

OFF Basic setting: Tx&Rx

Normally the Clavinova will respond to MIDI program change num- bers received from an external keyboard or another MIDI device. For example, the Clavinova can change voices in response to MIDI program change messages received from a connected MIDI sequencer. (These messages do not affect the keyboard-played voices.) The voices of con- nected external MIDI devices can also be changed by program change messages transmitted from the Clavinova. (Program change messages are transmitted when changing voices on the panel of the Clavinova.)

Depending on your particular MIDI setup, you may find that this fea- ture is convenient in some cases and not in others. Set the PROGRAM function to OFF to disable the transmission and reception of program change messages.

Bank MSB and LSB messages can be transmitted and received even when PROGRAM is set to OFF.

1 4

149CVP-103

Control Change Messages CONTROL Settings: Tx&Rx (transmitted/received),

OFF Basic setting: Tx&Rx

Control change messages are used for various non-keyboard perform- ance controls, such as the damper pedal, or for expressive control of the sound of a connected MIDI device, such as effects and volume. For ex- ample, the Clavinova can respond to control change messages transmit- ted from an external MIDI sequencer. (These messages do not affect the keyboard-played voices.) Similarly, an external MIDI device can be con- trolled by sending control change messages from the Clavinova to that device. (Control change messages are transmitted when operating the damper pedal, etc., on the Clavinova.)

Set CONTROL to OFF to disable the transmission and reception of control change messages.

The control change data recognized by the Clavinova is listed in de- tail on page 17 in the Reference Booklet.

System Exclusive Messages SYS EX. Settings: Tx&Rx (transmitted/received),

OFF Basic setting: Tx&Rx

System exclusive messages are used for more advanced or detailed MIDI control, or for controls related to specific manufacturers devices.

Set SYS EX. to OFF to disable the transmission and reception of sys- tem exclusive messages.

The system exclusive data recognized by the Clavinova is listed in detail on page 19 in the Reference Booklet.

Start/Stop Commands START/STOP Settings: Tx&Rx (transmitted/received),

OFF Basic setting: OFF

A device that transmits the Start/Stop command can start and stop the rhythm or sequence data performance of a receiving device via MIDI. For example, you can transmit the Start/Stop command from an external MIDI sequencer to start and stop the Auto Accompaniment or song play- back on the Clavinova. Also, an external MIDI sequencer or rhythm ma- chine can be started and stopped by starting and stopping the Auto Ac- companiment on the Clavinova.

Set START/STOP to ON to enable the transmission and reception of Start/Stop commands.

FUNCTION [MIDI 3] Display page 11

Receive Filter ...........................................................................................................

RECEIVE FILTER Settings: ON, OFF (x 16) Basic setting: ON (x 16)

The Receive Filter function lets you prevent the Clavinova from re- ceiving channel-specific MIDI messages such as note data and control changes on certain MIDI channels.

This function is useful, for example, when you want to control some of the Clavinovas voices exclusively from an external sequencer, and others using only the Clavinovas keyboard or its built-in Auto Accompaniment and Song mode functions. (You can also have the Clavinova ignore chan- nels carrying messages that are intended for another instrument connected to the Clavinovas MIDI [THRU] terminal.)

By default, the Clavinova will receive messages on all 16 channels. Use the following procedure to enable or disable the reception of a channel:

Use MIDI cables to connect the MIDI terminals on the Clavinova to other MIDI devices. The Clavinovas MIDI terminals are located at the left of the unit on the rear panel.

Tone generators or other devices to be controlled by the Clavinova can be connected to the MIDI [OUT] terminal. Devices that will control the Clavinova should be connected to the MIDI [IN] terminal. If you have a personal computer or sequencer that will control the Clavinova, you may want to connect it to both the [IN] and [OUT] terminals to allow two-way communication. In this case, any other instruments to be controlled by the same device can be connected to the Clavinovas MIDI [THRU] terminal.

When you use the MIDI terminals, set the [HOST SELECT] switch to the MIDI position. The MIDI terminals will not transmit or receive data if this switch is set to any other position.

You can set the Clavinovas MIDI parameters using pages 9 through 12 of the FUNCTION display (see page 147 through 150).

You can use the MIDI terminals to connect your Clavinova to a wide range of MIDI devices, including personal computers, sequencers, tone generators, and so on. In addition, the Clavinova features a [TO HOST] connector that lets you connect it directly to an Apple Macintosh, IBM-PC/AT, or other compatible personal computer without the use of a special MIDI interface.

Be sure to turn off the power when connecting or disconnecting computers or MIDI equipment, as failing to do so can result in damage to equipment.

Problem

The Clavinova does not turn on.

A click or pop is heard when the power is turned on or off.

Noise is heard from the Clavinovas speakers.

The display is too bright or too dark to read.

The keyboard volume is low com- pared to that of the Auto Accompa- niment or song playback.

The volume of the Auto Accompa- niment or song playback is low compared to that of the keyboard.

The overall volume is low, or no sound is heard.

The damper pedal has no effect, or the sound continuously sustains even when the damper pedal is not pressed.

Style or song playback does not start.

When the keyboard is played, not all of the notes sound.

Solution

Securely insert the female plug into the socket on the Clavinova, and the male plug into a proper AC outlet.

This is normal, and is no cause for concern.

Turn off the mobile phone, or use it further away from the Clavinova.

Adjust the contrast of the display using the [CONTRAST] control. (See page 11.)

Increase the overall keyboard level in the main display (page 23), or use the VOLUME function in the appropriate KEYBOARD display (pages 32, 34, or 37) to raise the volume of the key- board part in question.

Raise the [ACMP/SONG VOL- UME] level.

Raise the part or track level(s) in the appropriate MIXER display (page 65 or 100).

Raise the [MASTER VOLUME] level.

Unplug the headphones.

Turn the Local Control function on. (See page 147.)

Securely insert the pedal cord plug into the proper jack. (See page 42 in the Reference booklet.)

Set the MIDI Sync function to INT. (See page 148.)

Since the configuration of the tone generation system is such that later notes have priority, previous notes may occasionally be cut off. (See Specifications in the Reference Booklet for details about the simul- taneous polyphonic capacity.)

Cause

The Clavinova has not been plugged in properly.

Electrical current is being applied to the instrument.

The noise may be due to interference caused by the use of a mobile phone in close proximity to the Clavinova.

The brightness may be affected by the surrounding temperature.

Either the overall keyboard volume or the independent volume level of the keyboard part is set too low.

The [ACMP/SONG VOLUME] is set too low.

The volume level of one or more accompaniment parts or song tracks is set too low.

The [MASTER VOLUME] is set too low.

Headphones are connected.

The Local Control function is turned off.

The pedal cord plug is not connected.

The MIDI Sync function is set to EXT.

The Clavinovas total simultaneous polyphonic capacity (maximum number of notes) has been exceeded.

The Auto Accompaniment does not play back.

The desired chord is not recognized or output by the Auto Accompani- ment.

The maximum of 60 songs cannot be recorded.

Some tracks do not play back when playing back data.

The Auto Accompaniment is not turned on.

The keys are not being played cor- rectly.

The keys are not being played ac- cording to the selected accompani- ment mode.

The memory capacity is full because the playing time of one or more songs is long, or many functions were used.

Playback of the track(s) is turned off.

Press the [ACMP ON] button to turn on the Auto Accompaniment.

Refer to the Fingering Chart (page 15 of the Reference Booklet).

Check the accompaniment mode, and play the keys according to the selected mode. (See page 59.)

Delete unnecessary songs (page 144) or record to a new disk.

Turn on playback for the tracks that you want to hear. (See pages 97 and 100.)

MIDI and Data Compatibility

MIDI MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a worldwide

standard communication interface that allows MIDI-compatible musical instruments and equipment to share musical information and control one another. Depending on the MIDI device, the transmittable/receivable data

differs, and only data which is commonly recognized among the connected MIDI devices can be transmitted or received. You can check whether your instrument supports certain data types by referring to the MIDI Implementation Chart in the owners manual for that instrument. The MIDI Implementation Chart for the CVP-103 is found on page 38 in the Reference Booklet.

MIDI Terminals

Sequence Format The system which records song data is called sequence for- mat. Playback is only possible when the sequence format of the

disk matches that of the MIDI device.

[Common Sequence Formats] SMF (Standard MIDI File) This is the most common sequence format. Standard MIDI Files are generally available as one of two

types: Format 0 or Format 1. Many MIDI devices are compatible with Format 0, and most

commercially available software is recorded as Format 0. The CVP-103 is compatible with both Format 0 and Format

1 (for Format 1, up to a maximum of 17 chunks). Song data recorded on the CVP-103 is automatically re-

corded as SMF Format 0.

ESEQ This sequence format is compatible with many of Yamahas MIDI devices, including the Clavinova series instruments. This is a common format used with various Yamaha software. The CVP-103 is compatible with ESEQ.

Voice Allocation Format With MIDI, voices are assigned to specific numbers, called program numbers. The numbering standard (order of voice allocation) is referred to as the voice allocation format.

Voices may not play back as expected unless the voice allo- cation format of the song data matches that of the compat- ible MIDI device used for playback.

[Main Voice Allocation Formats] GM System Level 1 This is one of the most common voice allocation formats. Many MIDI devices are compatible with GM System Level

1, as is most commercially available software. The CVP-103 is compatible with GM System Level 1.

XG XG is a major enhancement of the GM System Level 1 format, and was developed by Yamaha specifically to provide more voices and variations, as well as greater expressive control over voices and effects, and to ensure compatibility of data well into the future. The CVP-103 is compatible with XG. Song data recorded on the CVP-103 using voices in the

[XG] category is XG-compatible.

DOC This voice allocation format is compatible with many of Yamahas MIDI devices, including the Clavinova series instru- ments. This is also a common format used with various Yamaha soft- ware. The CVP-103 is compatible with DOC.

Even if the devices and data used satisfy all the conditions above, the data may still not be completely compatible, depend- ing on the specifications of the devices and particular data re- cording methods.

MIDI Cable Connect MIDI devices with special MIDI cables. MIDI settings can be made in the MIDI pages of the Func-

tion mode display. (See pages 147 through 150.) Further information on MIDI and its applications is avail-

able in various music books and magazines.

Data Compatibility This section covers basic information on data compatibility:

whether or not other MIDI devices can playback the data recorded by CVP-103, and whether or not the CVP-103 can playback com- mercially available song data or song data created for other instru- ments or on a computer.

Depending on the MIDI device or data characteristics, you may be able to play back the data without any problem, or you may have to perform some special operations before the data can be played back. If you run into problems playing back data, please refer to the information below.

Basic Check Points The data and the MIDI device must match in regards to the items below.

Disk Format Sequence format Voice allocation format

Disk format Floppy disks are the main storage medium for data used with various devices, including computers. Different devices have different systems of storing data, therefore it is necessary to first configure the floppy disk to the system of the device being used. This operation is called formatting. There are two types of floppy disks: MF2DD (double sided,

double density) and MF2HD (double sided, high density), and each type has different formatting systems.

CVP-103 can record and playback with both types of floppy disks.

When formatted by the CVP-103, a 2DD disk stores up to 720 KB (kilobytes) and a 2HD disk stores up to 1.44 MB (megabytes). (The figures 720 KB and 1.44 MB indi- cate the data memory capacity. They are also used to indi- cate the format type of disk.)

Playback is only possible when the MIDI device to be used is compatible with the format of the disk.

This terminal transmits the MIDI data.

This terminal receives the MIDI data.

INOUTTHRU

MIDI

Data received via the MIDI IN terminal is re- transmitted unchanged through this terminal.

WARNING- When using any electrical or electronic prod- uct, basic precautions should always be followed. These pre- cautions include, but are not limited to, the following:

1. Read all Safety Instructions, Installation Instructions, Special Message Section items, and any Assembly Instructions found in this manual BEFORE making any connections, in- cluding connection to the main supply.

2. Main Power Supply Verification: Yamaha products are manufactured specifically for the supply voltage in the area where they are to be sold. If you should move, or if any doubt exists about the supply voltage in your area, please contact your dealer for supply voltage verification and (if applicable) instructions. The required supply voltage is printed on the name plate. For name plate location, please refer to the graphic found in the Special Message Section of this manual.

3. This product may be equipped with a polarized plug (one blade wider than the other). If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, turn the plug over and try again. If the problem persists, contact an electrician to have the obsolete outlet replaced. Do NOT defeat the safety purpose of the plug.

4. Some electronic products utilize external power sup- plies or adapters. Do NOT connect this type of product to any power supply or adapter other than one described in the owners manual, on the name plate, or specifically recommended by Yamaha.

5.

The use of an extension cord is not recommended! If you must use an extension cord, the minimum wire size for a 25' cord (or less) is 18 AWG. NOTE: The smaller the AWG number, the larger the current handling capacity. For longer extension cords, consult a local electri- cian.

10. The power supply cord (plug) should be disconnected from the outlet when electronic products are to be left unused for ex- tended periods of time. Cords should also be disconnected when there is a high probability of lightening and/or electrical storm activity.

11. Care should be taken that objects do not fall and liquids are not spilled into the enclosure through any openings that may exist.

12. Electrical/electronic products should be serviced by a qualified service person when:
