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.

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.

Notices and Information

NOTICE To avoid the possibility of malfunction/ damage to the product, damage to data, or damage to other property, follow the notices below.

Handling 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.

Instrument / Bench Maintenance To keep your Clavinova in optimum condition, we recommend that you periodically follow the maintenance points below. When cleaning the instrument or bench, use a soft, dry or slightly damp cloth. Do not use paint thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids,

or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths. Otherwise, it may become discolored or degraded.

If you are using 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 instrument's 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.

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.

As with an acoustic piano, pedals may become tarnished across the ages. 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.

Saving data The edited Songs/Styles/Voices and MIDI settings are lost when you turn off the power of the instrument without saving. It occurs

also when the power is turned of by Auto Power Off function (page 15). Save the edited data to the instrument (User memory) or USB flash memory (page 29). Saving the data to USB flash memory is even more secure, since the data in the instrument may be lost due to malfunction or incorrect operation.

To further protect against data loss through the USB flash memory damage, we recommend that you save your important data onto two USB flash memories.

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.

Compatible formats for this instrument

GM2 GM (General MIDI) is one of the most common Voice allocation formats. GM System Level 2 is a standard specification that enhances the original GM and improves Song data compatibility. It provides for increased polyphony, greater Voice selection, expanded Voice parameters, and integrated effect processing.

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.

GS GS was developed by the Roland Corporation. In the same way as Yamaha XG, GS is a major enhancement of the GM specifically to provide more Voices and Drum kits and their variations, as well as greater expressive control over Voices and effects.

XF The Yamaha XF format enhances the SMF (Standard MIDI File) standard with greater functionality and openended expandability for the future. This instrument is capable of displaying lyrics when an XF file containing lyric data is played.

SFF GE (Guitar Edition) SFF (Style File Format) is an original Style file format by Yamaha which uses a unique conversion system to provide high- quality automatic accompaniment based on a wide range of chord types. SFF GE (Guitar Edition) is an enhanced format of SFF, which features improved note transposition for guitar tracks.

Damper Pedal (Right) Pressing this pedal sustains notes. Releasing this pedal immediately stops (damps) any sustained notes. A half-pedal function of this pedal creates partial sustain effects, depending on how far down you press the pedal.

Half-pedal function This function allows the sustain length to vary depending on how far the pedal is pressed. The farther you press the pedal, the more the sound sustains. For example, if you press the damper pedal and the notes you play sound a bit murky and loud with too much sustain, you can partially release the pedal to lessen the sustain (murkiness).

Sostenuto Pedal (Center) When the Piano Voice is selected, if you play a note or chord on the keyboard and press this pedal while holding the note(s), the notes will sustain as long as the pedal is held. All subsequent notes will not sustain. When a Voice other than piano is selected, a specific function appropriate for the Voice is automatically assigned to the center pedal.

Soft Pedal (Left) When the Piano Voice is selected, pressing this pedal reduces the volume and slightly changes the timbre of the notes you play. When a Voice other than piano is selected, a specific function appropriate for the Voice is automatically assigned to the center pedal. You can adjust the depth of the Soft pedal effect on the display called up via [Menu] [Assignable] [Pedal]. For details, refer to the Reference Manual on the website.

Using the Pedals

If you press and hold the damper pedal here, all the notes shown will be sustained.

NOTE Certain Voices, such as

strings and brass, sustain continuously when the damper/sostenuto pedal is pressed.

Certain Voices such as drum kits may not be affected by use of the damper/sostenuto pedal.

NOTE The pedals are covered with vinyl covers when shipped from the factory. If your instrument features the GP Responsive Damper Pedal, remove the cover from the damper pedal for optimum use of the pedal effect.

NOTE If the pedal box rattles or gives way when you step on the pedals, turn the adjuster so that it is set firmly against the floor (pages 95, 98, 100).

GP Responsive Damper Pedal This special pedal has been designed to provide enhanced tactile response and, when pressed, is much closer in feel to the pedal of an actual grand piano. It makes it easier to physically experience the half-pedal point and more easily apply the half-pedal effect than other pedals. Since the pressing sensation may vary depending on the situation, including the location where the instrument is installed, you can adjust the half-pedal point to the desired setting on the display called up via [Menu] [Assignable] [Pedal]. For details, refer to the Reference Manual on the website.

Assigning a function to each pedal Various functions can be assigned to each of the three pedals and an optional foot controller/ footswitch including start/stop of Song playback and controlling a Super Articulation Voice. These can be set on the display called up via [Menu] [Assignable] [Pedal]. For details, refer to the Reference Manual on the website.

If you press and hold the sostenuto pedal here, only the notes held at this timing will be sustained.

Voices Playing the keyboard

Voices Playing the keyboard

The instrument features a wide variety of exceptionally realistic instrumental Voices, including piano, guitar, strings, brass, wind instruments and more.

The Voices can be played via three keyboard parts: Main, Layer and Left. These playing modes allow you to play just one single Voice (Main), play two different Voices in layer (Main and Layer), or play different Voices in the right- and left-hand areas of the keyboard (Main/Layer and Left). By combining these three parts, you can create luscious instrument textures and convenient performance combinations.

When the Left part is turned off, the entire keyboard is used for the Main and Layer parts. When the Left part is turned on, the F#2 and lower keys are used for the Left part while the upper keys (excluding F#2) are used for the Main and Layer parts. The key which divides the keyboard into the left-hand and right-hand areas is referred to as Split Point and its guide lamp lights when the Left part is turned on. The Voices of the parts which are turned on can be confirmed on the Home display.

1 Select the keyboard part then call up the Voice Selection display. Do this to select a Voice for each keyboard part.

Touching the display 1-1 On the Home display, touch [Main], [Left], or [Layer] to turn on the

There are various Voice characteristics; however, only the following ones are covered here. For detailed explanations, refer to the Reference Manual on the website. / : Super Articulation (SA, SA2) Voices

The word articulation in music usually refers to the transition or continuity between notes. This is often reflected in specific performance techniques, such as staccato, legato and slur. For details, refer to page 46.

: Organ Flutes Voices Lets you recreate all of the classic organ sounds by adjusting the flute footage levels and the percussive sounds, just like on conventional organs. For details, refer to page 47.

/ : Drum Voices, / : SFX Voices Lets you play various drums and percussion instruments or SFX (sound effects) sounds on the keyboard. Details are given in the Drum/Key Assignment List of the separate Data List.

NOTE SA and SA2 Voices are only

compatible with other models which have those types of Voices installed. Any Song or Style data youve created on the instrument using these Voices will not sound properly when played back on other instruments.

SA and SA2 Voices sound differently depending on the keyboard range, velocity, touch, etc. Hence, if you turn on a Keyboard Harmony effect, change the transpose setting or change the Voice Settings, unexpected or undesired sounds may result.

The characteristics of SA2 Voices (default vibrato setting and articulation effects applied by the pedals) are effective for real-time performance; however, these effects may not be completely reproduced when you play back a Song which has been recorded using SA2 Voices.

Voices Playing the keyboard

The Super Articulation Voices (SA Voices and SA2 Voices) enable you to create subtle, very realistic musical expressions, simply by how you play.

SA Voices The SA Voices provide many benefits with great playability and expressive control in real time.

Example: Saxophone Voice If you play a C note and then an adjacent D in a very legato way, you will hear the note change seamlessly, as though a saxophone player played it in a single breath.

Example: Guitar Voice If you press and hold a C note then press the left pedal, the pitch will change from C to D note as if a guitarist played a hammer-on note.

SA2 Voices (only for the CVP-609) For wind instrument Voices and Violin Voices, a special technology called AEM has been used, which features detailed samples of special expressive techniques used on those specific instruments to bend or slide into notes, to join different notes together, or to add expressive nuances at the end of a note, etc.

Example: Clarinet Voice If you hold a C note and play the Bb above, youll hear a glissando up to the Bb. Some note off effects are also produced automatically when you hold a note for over a certain time.

For specific performance instructions on certain Voices, you can call up the Information window of the selected SA Voice or SA2 Voice by touching the [S.Art] or [S.Art2] icon which appears on the upper right of the Voice name on the Home display.

Playing Super Articulation Voices

NOTE AEM is a technology that simulates the sound of acoustic instruments naturally by smoothly joining the most appropriate sound samples selected from the data base in realtime during performance.

Adding Articulation Effects by Using the Pedal When you assign a SA or SA2 Voice to the Main part, the function of the center and left pedals are switched to control articulation effects. Pressing a pedal triggers different playing effects, separate from your keyboard playing. For example, pressing a pedal for a saxophone Voice can produce breath noises or key noises, while doing the same for a guitar Voice can produce fret noises or body-tapping sounds. You can effectively intersperse these into the notes as you play. When an SA2 Voice is selected (CVP-609), pressing a pedal and playing/releasing a note enables you to add articulation effects, such as bend up/down, glissando up/down, brass falls, etc.

NOTE If you want to lock the pedal

function regardless of the Voice, turn off the Depend On Main Voice parameter called up via [Menu] [Assignable] [Pedal] [Depend On Main Voice].

If you assign the Articulation function to the ASSIGNABLE buttons (page 28), you can control articulation effects by using the buttons instead of the pedals.

Fingered Lets you finger your own chords on the chord section of the keyboard, while the instrument supplies appropriately orchestrated rhythm, bass, and chord accompaniment in the selected Style. The Fingered type recognizes the various chord types which are listed on the separate Data List booklet and can be looked up using the Chord Tutor function called up via [Menu] [ChordTutor].

Fingered On Bass

Accepts the same fingerings as Fingered, but the lowest note played in the Chord section of the keyboard is used as the bass note, allowing you to play on bass chords. (In the Fingered mode, the root of the chord is always used as the bass note.)

Full Keyboard Detects chords in the entire key range. Chords are detected in a way similar to Fingered, even if you split the notes between your left and right hands for example, playing a bass note with your left hand and a chord with your right, or by playing a chord with your left hand and a melody note with your right.

AI Fingered Basically the same as Fingered, with the exception that less than three notes can be played to indicate the chords (based on the previously played chord, etc.).

AI Full Keyboard

When this advanced fingering type is engaged, the instrument will automatically create appropriate accompaniment while you play just about anything, anywhere on the keyboard using both hands. You dont have to worry about specifying the Style chords. Although the AI Full Keyboard type is designed to work with many songs, some arrangements may not be suitable for use with this feature. This type is similar to Full Keyboard, with the exception that less than three notes can be played to indicate the chords (based on the previously played chord, etc.). 9th, 11th and 13th chords cannot be played. This type is available only for Style playback.

Song Playback Playing and Practice Songs

For the Clavinova, Song refers to MIDI or audio data which include preset songs, commercially available music files, etc. Not only can you play back a Song and listen to it, but you can also play the keyboard along with Song playback. There are two kinds of Songs that can be recorded and played back on this instrument: MIDI Songs and Audio Songs.

MIDI Song A MIDI Song is comprised of your keyboard performance information and is not a recording of the actual sound itself. The performance information refers to which keys are played, at what timing, and at what strength just as in a musical score. Based on the recorded performance information, the tone generator (of the Clavinova, etc.) outputs the corresponding sound. Since MIDI Song data contains the information such as keyboard part and Voice, you can practice effectively by viewing the score, turning the particular part on or off, or changing Voices.

Audio Song An Audio Song is a recording of the performed sound itself. This data is recorded in the same way as that used in recording cassette tapes, or with voice recorders, etc. You can play commercially available music on this instrument (as long as the files have been converted to WAV or MP3 format), just like you do on a portable music player.

Availability of functions differs between MIDI Songs and Audio Songs. In this chapter, the following icons indicate whether or not the explanation applies to MIDI Songs or Audio Songs individually. Example: Indicates explanation applies only to MIDI Songs.

You can play back the following types of Songs. Preset Songs (MIDI Songs) Your own recorded Songs (see page 66 for instructions on recording) Commercially available Songs: MIDI files in SMF (Standard MIDI File) format,

Audio files in WAV or MP3 format.

If you want to play back a Song in USB flash memory, connect the USB flash memory containing Song data to the [USB TO DEVICE] terminal beforehand.

1 On the Home display, touch the Song name to call up the Song Selection display.

Song Recording Recording Your Performance

This instrument allows you to record your performance in the following two methods.

MIDI recording With this method, recorded performances are saved to the instrument or a USB flash memory as an SMF (format 0) MIDI file. If you want to re-record a specific section or edit parameters such as Voice, use this method. Also if you want to record your performance to each channel one by one, execute Multi Track Recording of the MIDI recording method. Since a MIDI Song can be converted to an Audio Song after recording (page 70), you may want to use MIDI recording (with overdubbing and multiple parts) to first create a complex arrangement you would not otherwise be able to play live, then convert it to an Audio Song. This instrument allows you to record approximately 300 KB per Song.

Audio recording With this method, recorded performances are saved to a USB flash memory as an Audio file. Recording is done without designating the recorded part. Since it is saved in stereo WAV format of normal CD quality resolution (44.1kHz/16bit) by default, it can be transmitted to and played on portable music players by using a computer. The file format can be changed to MP3 via [Menu] [SongSetting] [Rec] [Audio Rec Format]. This instrument allows you to record up to 80 minutes per single recording.

Before recording, make the necessary settings such as Voice/Style selection (for MIDI recording and Audio Recording) and the microphone connection (only for Audio Recording, if you want to record your vocal). As necessary, connect the USB flash memory to the [USB TO DEVICE] terminal, especially if you want to execute Audio Recording.

1 On the Home display, touch [] at the upper right to expand the Song area, then touch [I] (Rec) to call up the Song Recording window.

Here and in the later steps, the operation in the Song area of the Home display can be controlled by the SONG CONTROL buttons (page 59).

2 Touch (MIDI Recording) or (Audio Recording). A blank Song for recording is automatically set. If you want to cancel recording, touch [Cancel] in the display or press the SONG CONTROL [REC] button.

Basic Procedure for Recording (MIDI/Audio Recording)

NOTE Before using a USB flash memory, be sure to read Connecting USB Devices on page 88.

Before starting Audio Recording: Recorded data via Audio can only be saved to USB flash memory. If you want to execute Audio Recording, make sure to connect the USB flash memory beforehand.

Song Recording Recording Your Perform ance

With MIDI Recording, you can create a MIDI Song consisting of 16 channels by recording your performance to each channel one by one. In recording a piano piece, for example, you can record the right-hand part to channel 1 then record the left-hand part to channel 2, allowing you create a complete piece which may be difficult to play live with both hands together. To record a performance with Style playback, for example, record the Style playback to channels 9 16, then record melodies to channel 1 while listening to the already recorded Style playback. In this way, you can create an entire Song which would otherwise be difficult, or even impossible, to play live.

1 If you want to re-record an existing MIDI Song, select the desired Song (steps 1 2 on page 57). If you want to record from scratch, skip this step.

2 On the Home display, touch [] at the upper right to expand the Song area, then touch [I] (Rec) to call up the Song Recording window.

shake it? Tighten all screws. Does the pedal box rattle or give way when you step on

the pedals? Turn the adjuster so that it is set firmly against the floor. Are the pedal and power cords inserted securely into

the sockets?

Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting

Overall

A click or pop is heard when the power is

turned on or off.

Electrical current is being applied to the instrument. This is normal.

The power is automatically turned off. This is normal and due to the Auto Power Off function. If necessary, set the parameter of the Auto Power Off function (page 15).

Noise is heard from the instruments

speakers.

Noise may be heard if a mobile phone is used near the instrument or if the phone is ringing. Turn off the mobile phone, or use it further away from the instrument.

In the LCD, there are some specific points

that are always lit or unlit.

These are the result of defective pixels and occasionally occur in TFT- LCDs; they do not indicate a problem in operation.

Noise is heard from the instruments

speakers or headphones when using the

instrument with the application on iPhone/

iPad.

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.

Mechanical noise is heard during

performance.

The keyboard mechanism of this instrument simulates the keyboard mechanism of an actual piano. Mechanical noise is also heard on a piano.

There is a slight difference in sound quality

among different notes played on the

keyboard.

This is normal and is a result of the instruments sampling system.

Some Voices have a looping sound.

Some noise or vibrato is noticeable at higher

pitches, depending upon the Voice.

The overall volume is too low or no sound is

heard.

The master volume may be set too low. Set it to an appropriate level with the [MASTER VOLUME] dial.

All keyboard parts are set to off. On the Home display, touch [Main]/ [Layer]/[Left] to turn on the part (page 42).

The volume of the individual parts may be set too low. Raise the volume in the Balance display (page 38).

Make sure the desired channel is set to on (page 83).

Headphones are connected, disabling the speaker output. Unplug the headphones.

Make sure that the Speaker is set to On from [Menu] [Utility] [Speaker/Connectivity].

The sound is distorted or noisy. The volume may be turned up too high. Make sure all relevant volume settings are appropriate.

This may be caused by certain effects or filter resonance settings. Check the effect or filter settings and change them accordingly in the Mixer display, referring to the Reference Manual on the website.

Not all simultaneously played notes sound. You are probably exceeding the maximum polyphony (page 106) of the instrument. When the maximum polyphony is exceeded, the earliest played notes will stop sounding, letting the latest played notes sound.

The keyboard volume is lower than the Song/

Style playback volume.

The volume of the keyboard parts may be set too low. Raise the keyboard volume (Main/Layer/Left), or lower the Song/Style volume in the Balance display (page 38).

Some characters of the file/folder name are

garbled.

The language settings have been changed. Set the appropriate language for the file/folder name (page 16).

An existing file is not shown on the display. The file extension (.MID, etc.) may have been changed or deleted. Manually rename the file on a computer, adding the appropriate extension.

Data files with names of more than 50 characters cannot be handled by the instrument. Rename the file, reducing the number of characters to 50 or less.

Voice

The Voice selected from the Voice Selection

display does not sound.

Check whether or not the selected part is turned on (page 42).

A strange flanging or doubling sound

occurs. The sound is slightly different each

time the keys are played.

The Main and Layer parts are set to on, and both parts are set to play the same Voice. Turn off the Layer part or change the Voice of one of the parts.

Some Voices will jump an octave in pitch

when played in the upper or lower registers.

This is normal. Some Voices have a pitch limit which, when reached, causes this type of pitch shift.

Style

The Style does not start even when the

[START/STOP] button is pressed.

The Rhythm channel of the selected Style may not contain any data. Turn the [ACMP ON/OFF] button on and play in the left-hand section on the keyboard to sound the accompaniment part of the Style.

Only the rhythm channel plays;

accompaniment sounds are not heard.

Make sure the Auto Accompaniment function is turned on; press the [ACMP ON/OFF] button.

You may be playing keys in the right hand range of the keyboard. Make sure to play keys in the chord section of the keyboard.

Styles in a USB flash memory cannot be

selected.

If the size of the Style data is large (about 120 KB or greater), the Style cannot be selected because the data is too large to be read by the instrument.

Song

Songs cannot be selected. This may be because the language settings have been changed. Set the appropriate language for the Song file name (page 16).

If the size of the Song data is large (about 300 KB or greater), the Song cannot be selected because the data is too large to be read by the instrument.

Song playback does not start. The Song has been stopped at the end of the Song data. Return to the beginning of the Song by pressing the SONG CONTROL [STOP] button.

In the case of a Song to which write-protect has been applied, there are some restrictions and playback may not be possible. For details, refer to page 33.

(MIDI)

Song playback stops before the Song is

finished.

The Guide function is turned on. (In this case, playback is waiting for the correct key to be played.) Turn off the Guide function (page 63).

(MIDI)

The measure number is different from that of

the score in the Song Position display, shown

by pressing the [REW]/[FF] buttons.

This happens when playing back music data for which a specific, fixed tempo is set.

(MIDI)

When playing back a Song, some channels

do not play.

Playback of these channels may be set to off. Turn playback on for those channels that are set to off (page 83).

Troubleshooting

(MIDI)

The Guide lamps do not light during Song

playback, even after turning on the Guide

function.

Any notes outside of the 88-key range cannot be indicated by the Guide lamps.

(MIDI)

The Guide lamps light an octave or two lower/

higher than the actual pitch.

The Guide lamps sometimes light an octave or two lower/higher than the actual pitch depending on the selected Voice.

(MIDI)

The tempo, beat, measure and music notation

is not displayed correctly.

Some Song data for the instrument has been recorded with special free tempo settings. For such Song data, the tempo, beat, measure and music notation will not be displayed correctly.

A USB memory is unavailable message

appeared, and then the recording was

aborted.

Make sure to use a compatible USB flash memory (page 88).

Make sure that the USB flash memory has enough memory (page 89).

If you are using a USB flash memory to which data has already been recorded, check first that no important data remains on the device, then format it (page 89) and try recording again.

The Song playback volume differs depending

on the selected Song.

The volume of MIDI Songs and Audio Songs are set independently. Adjust the volume in the Balance display (page 38) after selecting a Voice.

Microphone

The microphone input signal cannot be

recorded.

The microphone input signal cannot be recorded by MIDI recording. Record by Audio recording (page 66).

Harmony can be heard in addition to the

microphone sound.

Vocal Harmony is set to On. Turn Vocal Harmony off (page 72).

The Vocal Harmony effect sounds distorted or

out-of-tune.

Your vocal microphone may be picking up extraneous sounds, such as the Style sound from the instrument. In particular, bass sounds can cause mistracking of Vocal Harmony. To remedy this: Sing as closely to the microphone as possible. Use a unidirectional microphone. Turn down the Master volume, or adjust the volume balance on the

Balance display (page 38).

The Vocal Harmony effect is not applied even

when it is turned on.

In the Chordal mode, Vocal Harmony is added only when chords are detected. Try one of the following: Turn on the [ACMP ON/OFF] button and play chords in the chord

section during Style playback. Turn on the Left part and play chords in the left hand section. Play back a Song which contains chords. Set the Stop ACMP parameter to something other than Disabled via

[Menu] [StyleSetting] [Setting]. For details, refer to the Reference Manual on the website.

Mixer

The sound seems strange or different than

expected when changing a rhythm Voice

(drum kit, etc.) of the Style or Song from the

Mixer.

When changing the rhythm/percussion Voices (drum kits, etc.) of the Style and Song from the VOICE parameter, the detailed settings related to the drum voice are reset, and in some cases you may be unable to restore the original sound. In the case of Song playback, you can restore the original sound by returning to the beginning of the Song and playing back from that point. In the case of Style play, you can restore the original sound by selecting the same Style again.
