1. Avoid Humidity & Heat Avoid placing the Clavinova in areas that are subject to exces- sive humidity or heat. Do not leave the instrument near heaters or in a car exposed to direct sunlight, for example.

2. Avoid Dust & Moisture Avoid locations in which the instrument is likely to be exposed to excessive dust or moisture.

3. Power-off Before Connecting Connections between the Clavinova and any other device must be made with both pieces of equipment turned off.

4. Handle With Care Never apply excessive force to the controls, connectors or other parts of your Clavinova, and avoid scratching or bumping it with hard objects. Further, always turn the POWER switch off after use, and close the key cover to protect the keyboard (CVP-87A and CVP-85A), or cover the instrument with the dust cover provided (CVP-83S).

5. Clean Carefully Clean the cabinet and keys of your Clavinova only with a clean, slightly damp cloth. A neutral cleanser may be used if desired. Never use abrasive cleansers, waxes, solvents or chemical dust cloths since these can dull or damage the finish.

6. Never Tamper With the Internal Circuitry Never open the Clavinova cabinet and touch or tamper with the internal circuitry. Tampering with the circuitry can result in elec- trical shock!

7. Electric Interference Since the Clavinova contains digital circuitry, it may cause interference if placed too close to radio or television receivers. If this occurs, move the instrument further away from the af- fected equipment.

8. Check Your Power Supply Make sure that your local AC mains voltage matches the volt- age 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 (CVP-87A and CVP-85A) or on the rear panel (CVP-83S). Make sure that the voltage selector is set for the voltage in your area.

9. Name Plate Location The Clavinova name plate, including the units serial number, is located on the bottom panel of the main unit.

10.Handling Floppy Disks Yamaha Disk Orchestra Collection and Style Disk are write- protected, and therefore cannot be used to save songs. To save Performance Memory songs from the Performance Memory, a blank floppy disk should be used (one blank disk is supplied with the Clavinova).

Taking Care of Your Floppy Disks Do NOT eject the disk during recording or playback, or at

any time when the disk drive lamp is lit. Doing so may dam- age both the disk and the FDD.

Do NOT turn the Clavinova on or off while the disk is in the drive.

Always eject the disk before turning the Clavinova off. When ejecting a floppy disk from the disk drive:

Your Clavinova will give you years of playing pleasure if you observe the simple rules given below:

To eject a floppy disk, press the eject button slowly as far as it will go. Then when the disk Is fully ejected, remove it by hand.

The disk may not be ejected properly if the eject button is pressed too quickly or if it is not pressed in far enough. (The eject button may become stuck halfway with the disk ex- tending from the slot by only a few millimeters). If this is the case, do not attempt to pull out the partially ejected disk. Doing so may damage the disk drive mechanism and/or the floppy disk. To remove a partially ejected disk, try pressing the eject button once again or push the disk back into the slot, then repeat the eject procedure carefully.

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, possibly damag- ing the disk or even the disk drive.

Do not insert anything but floppy disks into the disk drive. Other objects may cause damage to the disk drive or floppy disk.

Use only double-sided double density (2DD) 3.5-inch floppy disks with the Clavinova.

Taking Care of Your Clavinova

Precautions Regarding Floppy Disk Use Never open the disks shutter. Dirt or dust on the

Internal magnetic surface will cause data errors. Never leave disks near a speaker, TV, or other de-

vice that emits a strong magnetic field. Do not store disks in places exposed to direct sun-

light or sources of high temperature.

Do not place heavy objects such as books on top of a disk.

Avoid getting the disks wet. Be sure to store the disks in environmental condi-

tions as specified below: Storage temperature: 4 to 53C (39 to 127F). Storage humidity: 8 to 90% relative humidity. Store in an area free from dust, sand, smoke, etc.

Be sure to apply the disk label at the proper position. When changing the label never cover the old label with a new label; always remove the old label first.

Head Cleaning The head of the disk drive unit will get dirty as you use it eventually causing data errors. If this occurs, clean the head with a 3.5 inch head cleaning disk (available from most computer supply stores).

Data Backup It is recommended that you copy your recorded songs to another disk for backup (see page 39). If the original disk is damaged or your song is deleted, the backup disk can be used instead of the original.

Protecting Your Data (Write Protect Tab)

Disk drive lamp Write protect tab open (locked write protected)

Write protect tab closed (unlocked write enabled)

4 Preparation The Music Stand

If you will be using sheet music with your Clavinova, raise the music stand built into its top panel by lifting the rear edge of the music stand, flip the support brackets on the rear of the music stand down so that they fit into the corresponding recesses.

The music stand can be lowered after slightly lifting the stand and flipping the two brackets which support it upward.

The Power Switch After making sure that the Clavinovas AC plug is properly inserted into a con-

venient AC wall outlet, press the [POWER] switch located to the left of the key- board once to turn the power on. Press the [POWER] switch again to turn the power off.

When the power is initially turned on, the PIANO voice selector LED will light, the POP 1 style selector LED will light, and 78 will appear on the TEMPO display.

Headphones One or two standard pairs of stereo headphones can be plugged in here for pri-

vate practice or late-night playing. The internal speaker system is automatically shut off when a pair of headphones is plugged into either or both of the HEAD- PHONES jacks.

POWER

The Key Cover (CVP-87A & CVP-85A)

To open the CVP-87A or CVP-85A key cover lift it just enough to clear the keys (do not lift excessively) then slide the cover back into the main unit. To close the cover slide it forward all the way and then lower it gently until it closes com- pletely.

The Clavinova has several volume controls that give you extra versatility in creating the required sound.

The Volume Controls

Auto Accompaniment ............................................................................................................................ Separate volume controls are provided for the RHYTHM, CHORD 1,

CHORD 2, and BASS sound. These volume controls let you set up the best balance between the various accompaniment parts when the AUTO BASS CHORD (ABC), Disk Orchestra Collection playback, and Performance Memory features are used, and the RHYTHM volume control can be used to balance the keyboard and rhythm sound when only rhythm accompaniment is used.

The volume of the keyboard can be independently adjusted by using the BASS control while holding the [MIDI/TRANSPOSE] button this is particularly handy for adjusting the balance when recording the Clavinova sound.

Other Volume Control Modes The Auto Accompaniment volume controls can be assigned to other functions via the Accompaniment Volume Mode utility function (page 42). They can be used to control modulation, pitch bend, and expression; or individual reverb depth for the rhythm, chord 1, chord 2, and bass parts.

NOTES If any or all of the Auto Accompaniment volume controls are set to their minimum positions, no sound will be produced by the corresponding parts. The maximum control positions produce the normal volume levels.

Dual Mode The DUAL mode makes it possible to play two

voices simultaneously across the entire range of the keyboard. This makes it easy to create excep- tionally rich, thick tonal textures.

Engaging the Dual Mode

Dual-mode Voice Balance The volume balance between the two voices combined in the DUAL mode can

be adjusted by using the TEMPO [] and [] buttons while pressing both of the active voice selectors. The selected balance value (1 15) will be shown on the TEMPO display while the voice selectors and TEMPO [] or [] buttons are held.

A setting of 1 sets the volume of the lowest-numbered voice to maximum and the highest-numbered voice to minimum (no sound).

A setting of 8 sets both voices to the same volume (this is the default balance setting, and can be recalled by pressing the TEMPO [] and [] buttons si- multaneously).

A setting of 15 sets the volume of the highest-numbered voice to maximum and the lowest-numbered voice to minimum (no sound).

NOTES The TEMPO [] and [] buttons allow two-speed scrolling: press lightly to scroll through the values slowly, or press firmly to scroll rapidly.

The dual mode cannot be used when the DRUMS voice is selected. Also, the dual and split modes cannot be used at the same time.

To engage the DUAL mode simply press two voice selectors at the same time or press one voice selector while holding another. A voice in the 1360 range can be dualed with the panel voices by pressing the [VOICE 13-60] button and any other voice selector at the same time (two voices in the 1360 range cannot be combined). The [s] and [t] buttons can then be used to select the desired 1360 voice. The higher voice number will appear on the TEMPO display during selec- tion.

The voice indicators of both selected voices will light when the DUAL mode is active. To return to the normal single-voice play mode, press any single voice se- lector.

When the [SPLIT] button is pressed and its indicator lights, the keyboard is split into left- and right-hand sections and different voices can be assigned to each. The split point is initially set at the F#2 key when the power is turned on, and the UPRIGHT BASS voice is initially assigned to the left-hand section of the keyboard (all keys up to and including F#2). The voice that was selected when the SPLIT mode was engaged is assigned to the right-hand section of the keyboard.

A setting of 8 sets both voices to the same volume (this is the default balance setting, and can be recalled by pressing the TEMPO [] and [] buttons si- multaneously).

A setting of 15 sets the volume of the right voice to maximum and the left voice to minimum (no sound).

NOTES The TEMPO [] and [] buttons allow two-speed scrolling: press lightly to scroll through the values slowly, or press firmly to scroll rapidly.

Damper Pedal Operation in the Split Mode The damper pedal (the right pedal see The Pedals on page 14) can be as-

signed to the left voice only, the right voice only, or to both voices in the split mode.

Right Voice Only (default): Press the right (damper) pedal while holding the [SPLIT] button.

Left Voice Only: Press the left (soft) pedal while holding the [SPLIT] button.

Both Voices: Press both the right and left pedals while holding the [SPLIT] button.

NOTES The dual and split modes cannot be used at the same time.

In the split the soft and sostenuto pedal functions apply to both the left- and right- hand voices.

When the ABC Single Finger mode (page 20) and the split mode are used simul- taneously, the left-hand voice will be accompanied by the appropriate ABC chord voices.

ROOM This setting adds a reverb effect to the sound that is similar to the type of acoustic reverberation you would hear in a medium-size room.

HALL 1 For a more spacious reverb sound, use the HALL 1 setting. This effect simulates the natural reverberation of a medium-size concert hall.

HALL 2 HALL 2 simulates the reverb of a very large concert hall.

COSMIC COSMIC is an echo effect in which the sound seems to bounce around in the stereo sound field.

NOTES The ROOM effect is automatically selected when the POWER switch is turned on.

Reverb Depth Control The depth of the selected reverb effect can be increased or decreased by press-

The Clavinova has 32-note polyphony which means you can normally play up to 32 notes at once. This number varies, however, according to the func- tions being used, as shown in the chart below:

The Keyboard & Polyphony Keyboard only 32 notes.

Keyboard only (dual) 16 notes.

Keyboard + rhythm 24 notes (rhythm uses 8).

Keyboard (dual) + rhythm 12 notes

Keyboard + ABC 12 notes (rhythm 8; ABC 12).

Keyboard (dual) + ABC 6 notes

The number of available notes is further reduced if the performance memory or a Disk Orchestra Collection disk is being played at the same time. Further varia- tion occurs in the CVP-85A and CVP-83S with 1-layer and 2-layer voices: the polyphony is halved with 2-layer voices. The CVP-87A additionally features stereo voices. The following chart shows all stereo, 2-layer, and 1-layer voices in the CVP-87A, CVP-85A, and CVP-83S.

The CVP-83S and CVP-85A have two pedals while the CVP-87A has three. These offer a range of advanced expressive capabilities.

The Pedals

Right Pedal (Damper Pedal) The damper pedal functions in the same way as a damper pedal on an acoustic piano. When the damper pedal is

pressed notes played have a long sustain. Releasing the pedal immediately stops (damps) any sustained notes.

NOTES While the CVP-85A and CVP-83S damper pedals are either on or off, the CVP- 87A damper pedal offers continuous damping control. On/off operation can also be selected via the Damper Pedal Mode utility function (page 43).

Center Pedal (Sostenuto Pedal, CVP-87A only) 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 (as if the damper pedal had been pressed) but all subsequently played notes will not be sustained. This makes it possible to sustain a chord, for example, while other notes are played staccato.

Left Pedal (Multi-function) The left pedal has a number of functions which can be selected using the

[LEFT PEDAL FUNCTION] button and indicators. Each time the [LEFT PEDAL FUNCTION] button is pressed the next function on the LEFT PEDAL function list is selected and the corresponding indicator will light.

Pressing the soft pedal subtly reduces the volume and slightly changes the tim- bre of notes played. The SOFT function is automatically selected whenever the POWER switch is turned on.

Sostenuto (CVP-85A and CVP-83S) ...................................................................................................... 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 (as if the damper pedal had been pressed) but all subsequently played notes will not be sustained. This makes it possible to sustain a chord, for example, while other notes are played staccato.

The left-pedal SOSTENUTO function cannot be selected while the SOLO STYLEPLAY feature is operating.

Pan

Transposition The Clavinovas TRANSPOSE function makes it

possible to shift the pitch of the entire keyboard up or down in semitone intervals up to a maximum of six semitones. Transposing the pitch of the Clavinova keyboard makes it easier to play in difficult key signa- tures, and you can simply match the pitch of the key- board to the range of a singer or other instrumentalist.

MIDI/ TRANSPOSE

-2 TEMPO

MIDI/ TRANSPOSE

Each voice has a preset pan setting (indicated by P d on the TEMPO display) which is automatically set when the power is first turned on.

NOTES

The P d keyboard scale pan default for some voices places the treble-register sound to the right and the bass-register sound to the left. Using a different PAN setting places the entire voice, low and high notes included, at the same position.

The DRUMS voice has a preset PAN setting which cannot be changed.

The pan (stereo) position of the voice played on the key- board can be adjusted by moving the RHYTHM volume control while holding the [MIDI/TRANSPOSE] button. The pan position is shown on the TEMPO display, from PL6 for full left at the MIN control position, through P C for center, to Pr6 for full right at the MAX control position. This can be used to produce a broader ensemble sound with the Performance Memory multitrack recording feature.

The pan settings are as follows:

Full Left

Pitch control makes it possible to tune the Clavinova over a 50-cent range (approximate) in approximately 1.2-cent or 1-hertz intervals. A hundred cents equals one semitone, so the tuning range provided allows fine tuning of overall pitch over a range of approximately a semitone. Pitch control is useful for tuning the Clavinova to match other instruments or recorded music.

Pitch Control

Tuning Up ................................................................................................................................................ ZTo tune up (raise pitch), hold the A-1 and B-1 keys simultaneously (A-1 and B-

1 are the two lowest white keys on the keyboard) and press any key between C3 and B3. Each time a key in this range is pressed the pitch is raised by approxi- mately 1.2 cents, up to a maximum of about 50 cents above standard pitch. To raise the pitch in 1-hertz increments press the TEMPO [] button instead of the C3-B3 keys. The TEMPO [] button can also be used to tune down while the A-1 and B-1 keys are held.

XRelease the A-1 and B-1 keys.

17Accompaniment The CVP-87A, CVP-85A, and CVP-83S have 24 styles that can be used as a basis for

rhythm accompaniment, or fully orchestrated rhythm, bass, and chord accompaniment (see Auto Bass Chord on page 20).

Tempo Control Whenever you select a different style, the suggested tempo for that style is

also selected, and the tempo is displayed on the TEMPO display in quarter-note beats per minute (unless the accompaniment is playing, in which case the same tempo is maintained).

You can change the tempo to any value between 32 and 280 beats per minute, however, by using the TEMPO [] and [] buttons. This can be done either be- fore the accompaniment is started or while it is playing. Press either button briefly to decrement or increment the tempo value by one, or hold the button for continu- ous decrementing or incrementing. Press lightly for slow, or harder for fast decrementing or incrementing.

NOTES The suggested tempo for the selected style can be recalled at any time by press- ing both the [] and [] buttons simultaneously.

Accompaniment

Starting the Accompaniment

There are several ways to start the accompaniment:

Straight Start ........................................................................................................................................... Press the [START/STOP] button. Each of the styles also has a variation that can be selected by pressing the [VARIA-

TION/FILL TO VARIATION] button (its LED will light) before pressing the [START/ STOP] button. Normally the [NORMAL/FILL TO NORMAL] button LED will be lit (or you can select it if the variation is selected), indicating that the normal pattern is selected.

START/STOP

The selected start mode can be disengaged prior to starting the accompaniment by pressing the selected button (flashing indicator) a second time.

Any of the start types described above can be synchronized to the first note or chord played on the keyboard by first pressing the [SYNCHRO START] button so that its indi- cator lights. When the keyboard is split or Auto Bass Chord Single Finger or Fingered mode is used, the first note played on the left-hand section of the keyboard will start the accompaniment (i.e. keys to the left of and including the split-point key normally F#2). Once the synchronized start mode has been selected, use the [NORMAL/FILL TO NOR- MAL], [VARIATION/FILL TO VARIATION] and/or [INTRO/ENDING] buttons to select the type of start you want.

The first dot of the BEAT display will flash at the current tempo when a synchronized start mode has been selected.

19Accompaniment

Metronome The CVP-87A, CVP-85A, and CVP-83S also offer a metronome function that is

ideal for practice. To start the metronome, simply press the [METRONOME] button so that its

indicator lights. The metronome will play at the currently selected tempo whether a style is playing or not. The metronome volume can be adjusted via the RHYTHM volume control.

Press the [METRONOME] button again to stop the metronome sound (the METRONOME indicator will go out). The metronome will also stop automati- cally if the [START/STOP] button is pressed to stop a style in progress.

NOTES The metronome will not normally sound when a style is playing. If the style is started by pressing the [START/STOP] button while the metronome is playing, however, the metronome will continue to sound along with the style.

Tap start ..................................................................................................................................................

This function lets you set the tempo and start the rhythm in one operation. Sim- ply tap the [TAP] button at the required tempo 3 times for a 3/4 style and 4 times for a 4/4 style. The rhythm will start from the beginning of the next measure at the specified tempo.

NOTES The [TAP] button can also be used to change the tempo during rhythm playback. In this case the tap click will not sound.

If you tap the [TAP] button less than the required number of times (i.e. 3 or 4), the tap tempo function will be cancelled after a few seconds.

The CVP-87A, CVP-85A, and CVP-83S in- clude a sophisticated auto-accompaniment sys- tem (Auto Bass Chord ABC) that can provide automated rhythm, bass and chord backing in a number of ways.

Auto Bass Chord (ABC)

CSet the Tempo ......................................................................................................................................... Use the TEMPO [] and [] buttons to set the desired accompaniment tempo

if necessary (see Tempo Control on page 17).

Single-finger Accompaniment SINGLE FINGER accompaniment makes it simple to produce accompaniment using major, seventh, minor and minor-

seventh chords by pressing a minimum number of keys in the ABC section of the keyboard. The automatic accompaniment consists of rhythm, bass and chords.

ZSelect SINGLE FINGER ..........................................................................................................................

XSelect a Style ..........................................................................................................................................

Select the desired accompaniment using the style selectors (see Style Selec- tion on page 17).

Press the [SINGLE FINGER] button to select the SINGLE FINGER mode (the SINGLE FINGER indicator will light).

SINGLE FINGER

VPlay ..........................................................................................................................................................

Pressing any key on the ABC section of the keyboard (up to the split point normally the F#2 key) will cause the automatic chord and bass accompaniment to begin (synchro start is automatically selected in the ABC mode). If you press a C key, for example, a C-major accompaniment will be played. Press another key in the ABC section of the keyboard to select a new chord. The key you press will always determine the root of the chord played (i.e. C for a C chord) .

NOTES Automatic synchro start switching can be enabled or disabled via the utility 1 mode Auto Synchro Start Switching function, described on page 43.

Playing Minor, Seventh, and Minor-seventh Chords in the Single- finger Mode

For a minor chord, press the root key and a black key to its left.

For a seventh chord, press the root key and a white key to its left.

For a minor-seventh chord, press the root key and both a white and black key to its left.

CSet the Tempo .........................................................................................................................................

Use the TEMPO [] and [] buttons to set the desired accompaniment tempo if necessary (see Tempo Control on page 17 for more details).

VPlay .......................................................................................................................................................... As soon as you play any chord (up to 4 notes) on the lower keyboard (up to the

split point normally the F#2 key), the Clavinova will automatically begin to play the chord along with the selected rhythm and an appropriate bass line (synchro start is automatically selected in the ABC mode*).

* Automatic synchro start switching can be enabled or disabled via the utility 1 mode Auto Synchro Start Switching function, described on page 43.

NOTES

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

The Clavinova will accept the following chord 20 types: Major [M] Minor [m] Major seventh [M7] Sixth [6] Seventh [7] Minor sixth [m6] Minor seventh [m7] Minor major seventh [mM7] Minor seventh flatted fifth [m7-5] Minor flatted fifth [m-5]

(minor major seventh flatted fifth) [mM7-5]

The [INTRO/ENDING], [NORMAL/FILL TO NORMAL], and [VARIA- TION/FILL TO VARIATION] buttons can be used in the ABC mode to create pattern variations in the same way that they are used with rhythm patterns (refer to the Accompaniment section on page 18, 19 for details).

BStop the Accompaniment ......................................................................................................................

Press the [START/STOP] or [INTRO/ENDING] button to stop the accompani- ment.

Full-keyboard ABC

Auto Bass Chord (ABC)

FULL KEYBOARD

When this advanced auto-accompaniment mode is engaged (press the [FULL KEY- BOARD] button so that its indicator lights) the Clavinova will automatically create ap- propriate accompaniment while you play just about anything, anywhere on the keyboard: chords, a bass line, arpeggiated chords, a melody line. You dont have to worry about specifying the accompaniment chords. Although Full-keyboard ABC is designed to work with many songs, some arrangements may not be suitable for use with this feature. Try playing a few simple songs in the Full-keyboard ABC mode to get a feel for its capabili- ties.

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

The Conventional Full-keyboard ABC mode can be engaged by pressing the [SIN- GLE FINGER] and [FINGERED] buttons simultaneously (both indicators will light). In this mode the split point is de-activated and notes played anywhere on the keyboard are detected and used to determine the harmonization of the accompaniment. In the Con- ventional Full-keyboard ABC mode, chord detection is possible when at least three notes are played anywhere on the keyboard.

SINGLE FINGER FINGERED

Volume Control

NOTES The Dual or SPLIT mode can be used with Full-keyboard ABC.

The Full-keyboard and Conventional Full-keyboard ABC modes will be disengaged and the Fingered mode will be engaged if Solo Styleplay is turned on.

Solo Styleplay will automatically be turned off whenever the Full-keyboard or Conven- tional Full-keyboard ABC mode is engaged.

Press the [FULL KEYBOARD] button so that its indicator goes out when you want to exit from the FULL-KEYBOARD ABC mode. To exit from the Conventional Full-keyboard ABC mode press the [SINGLE FINGER] or [FINGERED] button twice.

The RHYTHM, CHORD 1, CHORD 2, and BASS volume controls can be used to adjust the volume of the corresponding accompaniment parts when using ABC. In gen- eral, CHORD 1 controls rhythmic chords while CHORD 2 controls more decorative chords (arpeggios, etc.). The volume of the keyboard can be independently controlled by using the BASS volume control while holding the [MIDI/TRANSPOSE] button.

NOTES Some styles may not use all four parts: RHYTHM, CHORD 1, CHORD 2, and BASS.

Usually the CHORD 1 and CHORD 2 parts will not play simultaneously in the Full- keyboard ABC mode to prevent possible conflict with the melody. The sound of the silent part can be restored by changing the setting of the corresponding volume control CHORD 1 or CHORD 2.

Disk Styles A Style Disk is supplied with the Clavinova, provid-

ing an extra 40 ABC accompaniment styles. Any two of these patterns can be loaded into the Clavinovas memory at a time. The [DISK STYLE 1] and [DISK STYLE 2] buttons select the loaded disk styles in the same way as the STYLE selectors select the internal styles.

NOTES If no disk styles are loaded as described below, the [DISK STYLE 1] and [DISK STYLE 2] buttons select pre-pro- grammed disk styles contained in internal ROM memory. These are the default styles selected by the [DISK STYLE 1] and [DISK STYLE 2] buttons whenever the power is initially turned on.

Selecting & Loading Disk Styles Z Insert the Style Disk ...............................................................................................................................

Insert the Style Disk into the disk drive with the sliding door on the disk facing the drive slot and the label side facing upward. The disk should click into place and the disk lamp will light briefly while the Clavinova reads and identifies the disk.

XMake Sure the [SONG SELECT] Indicator Is Lit .................................................................................. The [SONG SELECT] indicator will light automatically when the disk is

ready. If a disk is already loaded and the [SONG SELECT] indicator is not lit, press the [SONG SELECT] button so that it lights. When this is done the [DISK STYLE 1] and [DISK STYLE 2] button indicators will flash alternately, and the single-finger ABC mode and synchronized start mode will be engaged (any other ABC mode will remain active if it was selected before the disk was loaded).

CSelect a Style .......................................................................................................................................... Use the [] and [] buttons below the SONG NUMBER display to select the

desired style number. The selected style number will appear on the SONG NUMBER display A 1 for example. You can preview the selected style by playing on the left-hand section of the keyboard (single-finger or fingered). Pattern playback will stop if a different pattern number is selected.

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

In addition to Disk Orchestra Collection disks, the Clavinova can also play back Yamaha Disklavier PianoSoft disks, disks containing Yamaha ESEQ format sequence data, and disks containing songs recorded in Standard MIDI File format (format 0 only).

It is possible to change the track 1/2 voice by using the panel voice selectors during playback of Disk Orchestra Collection and Disklavier PianoSoft disks. In this case the playback voice will become the same as the voice played via the keyboard. The playback voice cannot be changed when playing back other type of disks (the keyboard voice can be changed).

The phrase repeat function described above can only be used with Disk Orchestra Collection disks. A-B repeat can be used with any type of data. The guide function (and the keyboard guide lamps on the CVP-87A) can only be used with ESEQ files.

The [ORCH/3-10TR] part select button can also be used with all types of data: with files other than General MIDI files it turns tracks 3 through 14 on or off, and with General MIDI Files it turns tracks 3 through 9 and 11 through 16 on or off. The [RHYTHM] button can be used to turn track 15 on and off with file types other than General MIDI (with General MIDI files the [RHYTHM] button turns track 10 on and off). With any type of file the individual tracks (1 through 16) can be turned on and off as described on page 27 tracks 11 through 16 are controlled by keys G6 through C7, respectively.

When playing files other than General MIDI files the Auto Accompaniment volume controls affect the following tracks (the volume of General MIDI format tracks cannot be controlled):

When playing General MIDI Files the Clavinovas internal tone generator is auto- matically switched to the GM System Level 1 voice allocation.

The CVP-87A, CVP-85A, and CVP-83S feature a built-in sequencer which can be used to independently record up to ten separate parts of a single musical composition, plus a rhythm track. Each part is recorded on one of the Performance Memory tracks accessed via the [RIGHT/1TR], [LEFT/2TR], [ORCH/3-10TR], and [RHYTHM] buttons. The music data that you record is stored on a 3.5" floppy disk loaded into the Clavinovas disk drive unit. Up to approximately 60 songs can be recorded on a single disk, depending on the amount of data contained in each song. Before you can record, however, you must format a new disk, as described on page 38.

ZInsert a Formatted Disk .......................................................................................................................... If you havent already done so, make sure that a properly formatted disk is loaded

into the Clavinova disk drive (see page 38), and that the disks write protect tab is set to the write position (tab closed).

NOTES If you insert an unformatted disk, For will appear on the SONG NUMBER display. Please format the disk before proceeding.

If a disk is already loaded and the [SONG SELECT] indicator is out, press the [SONG SELECT] button so that the indicator lights before proceeding.

Easy One-pass Recording & Playback

Select a SONG NUMBER between 1 and 60 for the piece you are about to record (up to 60 different songs, each with a different song number, can be recorded on a single disk). Make sure the song number you select has not already been used for a song previously recorded on the disk you are using.

NOTES If the [RIGHT/1TR], [LEFT/2TR], [ORCH/3-10TR], or [RHYTHM] button indicator glows green when a song number is selected, the corresponding track of the selected song already contains recorded data. Before recording over a song that contains previous data, we recommend that you delete the entire song as described in Delet- ing a Song on page 40.

XSelect a Song Number ...........................................................................................................................

CSelect a Voice ......................................................................................................................................... Use the VOICE selectors to select the voice you want to record with. You can try

out the selected voice on the keyboard before proceeding.

VEngage the Record Ready Mode ...........................................................................................................

Press the [REC] button so that its indicator lights. The [RIGHT/1TR] indicator should also glow red at this point, indicating that you are ready to record on track 1.

Remaining Disk Space Display When you release the [REC] button the amount of disk space available for record- ing will appear on the SONG NUMBER display (in approximate kilobytes). With an empty disk you should have about 700 kilobytes of space for recording (room enough for about 50,000 notes if no other Clavinova functions are used). If no space is available for recording, FUL will appear on the display.

Adding New Tracks When youve finished recording the first track, you can simply play it back as described in the previous section or

add a new track to your song. To record a new track:

ZSelect a Voice ......................................................................................................................................... Select a voice and other parameters for the new track. Try out the voice and selected

parameters before proceeding.

XEngage the Record Ready Mode ...........................................................................................................

REC Press the [REC] button to engage the record ready mode.

Monitoring Previously Recorded Tracks All previously recorded tracks are automatically selected for playback when the record mode is engaged. You can turn these tracks on or off as required by pressing the corresponding track button(s) before pressing the [REC] button.

CSelect a Track .........................................................................................................................................

BStop Recording ....................................................................................................................................... Press the [START/STOP] button or the [REC] button to stop recording.

Changing the Initial Parameter Values The initial values of parameters marked with asterisks (*) in the lists given in step N on page 33 can be changed for each track or the entire song by engaging the record mode for the desired track, changing the parameters as required, and then disengaging the record mode (press the [REC] button again) without actually recording. To cancel any initial parameter values youve made, select a different track and then press the [REC] button to disengage the record mode. To change individual ABC part volume settings engage any ABC mode after turning [REC] on, set the RHYTHM, CHORD 1, CHORD 2, and/or BASS volume control as required, then disengage the record mode. The BASS volume control can be used while holding the [MIDI/TRANSPOSE] button to independently adjust the volume of each track (except the rhythm track). The volume of the rhythm track is adjusted via the RHYTHM volume control. Please note that volume settings can only be decreased. Individual track reverb depth can be adjusted by using the BASS volume while hold- ing the [REVERB] button, and the overall reverb depth can be adjusted by using the TEMPO [] and [] buttons while holding the [REVERB] button. Also note that the tempo, reverb type, style, style variation, fill-in, and intro/ending settings are common to all tracks and cannot be set independently for different tracks.

Erasing the Tracks Individual tracks except the rhythm track can be completely erased by starting and stopping recording without actually playing or changing any parameters (i.e. press the [START/STOP] button twice). The same procedure can be used to erase the rhythm track if the RHYTHM volume control is set to its minimum position.

NOTES Tracks 3-10 can be erased by engaging the record mode, turning ABC on, and then pressing the [START/STOP] button twice.

Recording Without a Disk The Clavinova has enough internal RAM memory to allow recording for a while even if a disk is not loaded (up to approximately 1,600 notes if no other data is recorded). If you accidentally record without loading a disk, make sure you use the COPY func- tion (described on page 39) to copy the recorded data to disk if you want to keep the recorded data (the internal RAM memory is not backed up). This is necessary because the internal RAM memory is cleared automatically when a Disk Orchestra Collection, Disklavier PianoSoft, or Style Disk is loaded, or a performance disk is loaded and the [SONG SELECT] button is pressed.

Select a track other than the one you used to record the previous track. The indicator of the track selected for recording should glow red.

NOTES Remember that if you record on a track that has already been recorded, the previous material will be erased and the new material will be recorded in its place.

This chapter describes several important disk control functions: Formatting new disks, copying songs, and deleting songs.

Disk Control

Formatting a New Disk The Clavinova uses only 3.5" 2DD floppy disks. We recommend that you use Yamaha 2DD disks. Before you can

use a new disk for recording, the disk must be formatted so that the Clavinova can recognize it and correctly write the music data onto it.

Z Insert the Disk To Be Formatted ........................................................................................................... Insert a new blank disk. Make sure that the disks write protect tab is set to the

write position (tab closed), and insert the new disk into the disk drive unit with the sliding door facing the drive slot and the label side of the disk facing upward. The disk should click securely into place, and the disk drive lamp should light briefly.

NOTES For will appear on the SONG NUMBER display to indicate that a blank (unformatted) disk is loaded in the drive.

Pro will appear if a protected disk that cannot be formatted is loaded in the drive: a write-protected disk, a Disk Orchestra Collection disk, a Disklavier disk, or a disk formatted by the Disklavier.Write protect tab

closed (unlocked write enabled)

XEngage the Format Function .................................................................................................................

Press the DISK CONTROL [FORMAT] button. The [FORMAT] button LED will flash and n Y will appear on the SONG NUMBER display.

CConfirm the Format Operation ..............................................................................................................

Use the SONG NUMBER [] and [] buttons to select either n (NO) or Y (YES) on the display. Y if you intend to execute the format operation or n if you wish to cancel the operation. This step is necessary because formatting com- pletely erases any data that is already on the disk make sure that the disk youre about to format does not contain any important data!

FORMAT

SONG NUMBER

VStart Formatting ......................................................................................................................................

If you selected Y in the previous step, press the [FORMAT] button again and formatting will begin. The number of each track on the disk will be shown on the display as the format process continues (F80 through 1). When formatting is complete (the display will show 1), you can go ahead and record using the per- formance memory, or use the COPY function (below) to copy songs or Disk Style data to the disk.

NOTES The format operation can be aborted at any time prior to actually starting the format operation by pressing the [START/STOP] button. In this case, the disk will have to be properly formatted again before use.

Copying Songs Song data can be backed up by copying to a new song number or a different disk, as follows:

ZSelect the Source Song .........................................................................................................................

Press the [SONG SELECT] button and use the [] and [] buttons below the SONG NUMBER display to select the number of the song you wish to copy.

Disk Control

XEngage the Copy Function ....................................................................................................................

Press the [COPY] button. The [COPY] button LED will flash.

CSelect the Destination Song .................................................................................................................. Use the [] and [] buttons below the SONG NUMBER display to select the

song number you wish to copy to (i.e. the destination song number). If you select a song number that already contains data, that data will be overwritten by the new song data. If you select a song number greater than 60 (%61 through %60 will appear on the display), the copy will be made to a different disk.

COPY

VStart Copying .......................................................................................................................................... Press the [COPY] button again to begin the actual copy operation. cPY will

appear on the SONG NUMBER display and the [COPY] indicator will light con- tinuously during the copy operation.

If you chose to copy to a different disk, you may have to exchange the source and destination disks a few times if the song being copied is long and complex. In this case, the Clavinova will prompt you to insert the source and destination disks with the displays shown to the left.

NOTES If you copy to a song number that already contains data, the Clavinova will ask you to confirm the copy operation. Use the SONG NUMBER [] and [] buttons to select either n (NO) or Y (YES) on the display. Y if you intend to execute the copy operation or n if you wish to cancel the operation. The copy operation will begin automatically if you select Y.

The copy operation can be aborted at any time prior to actually starting the copy operation (i.e. while the [COPY] indicator is flashing) or during the disk exchange display (d 1 or d 2 ) by pressing the [START/STOP] button.

Copying Disk Orchestra Disks ([ORCH/3-10TR] and [RHYTHM] parts only) ....................................................

All Disk Orchestra data except the right-hand and left-hand parts can be copied to a separate disk by following the standard copy procedure outlined above. The copied data cannot, however, be copied a second time to another disk.

Copying the Style Disk Data .................................................................................................................. All Style Disk data can be copied to a separate disk by following the standard copy procedure outlined above. A sin-

gle disk can hold up to 50 styles. Style Disk data can only be copied to a newly formatted disk (i.e. no other data can be previously recorded on the disk) or a disk which already contains copied style data.

NOTES Data from the Style Disk cannot be copied to a disk that contains Performance Memory or Disk Orchestra Collection data. The reverse is also true: Performance Memory and Disk Orchestra Collection data cannot be copied to a disk that con- tains data copied from the Style Disk.

Copying Data Recorded Without a Disk ............................................................................................... If youve used the performance memory to record data without first loading a disk: press the [COPY] button, insert a

formatted disk, then select the destination song number and copy as described above.

NOTES Data cannot be copied from Disklavier disks, or Standard MIDI File disks. Data cannot be copied to any write protected disk. It is also not possible to copy from one song number to another within the same Disk Orchestra disk.

40 Disk Control

Deleting a Song You can delete any song from a loaded disk as follows:

ZEngage the Delete Function ................................................................................................................. Press the [COPY] button while holding the [MIDI/TRANSPOSE] button. The

[COPY] LED will flash and d80 will appear on the SONG NUMBER display.

XSelect the Song to Delete .....................................................................................................................

NOTES The delete operation can be aborted at any time prior to actually starting the delete operation (i.e. while the [COPY] indicator is flashing) by pressing the [START/STOP] button.

Data recorded to memory without loading a disk can be deleted simply by execut- ing step Zand selecting n or Y.

Data cannot be deleted from any write protected disk, the supplied Style Disk, Disk Orchestra Collection disks, or Disklavier disks.

Error Messages If an error related to the disk occurs, one of the following messages may appear. If this happens, check the possible

causes and solutions listed below. If all else fails, try a different disk. If this doesnt clear up the problem, contact your Yamaha dealer.

dEr Disk Error. An error occurred while writing to or reading from the disk. Try the operation again; if the error occurs a second time the disk or drive may

be faulty. If the drive has been in use for some time the heads may be dirty. Clean the heads with a commercially-available floppy disk head cleaner. If the error still occurs with one disk and not others the disk should be considered faulty and should be discarded. If the error occurs with all disks the drive may be faulty. Refer the problem to your Yamaha dealer.

Pro Write Protected. You have attempted to format, write to, copy to, or delete data from a write- protected disk. Use a disk that is not write protected (set the disks write-protect tab to the write-enable position).

For Unformatted Disk. The loaded disk is not formatted for use with the Clavinova. After making sure that the disk does not contain any important data (for another device, for example), format the disk as described on page 38.

MIDI, the Musical Instrument Digital Interface, is a world-standard communication interface that allows MIDI-compatible musical instruments and equipment to share musical information and control one another. This makes it possible to create systems of MIDI instruments and equipment that offer far greater versatility and control than is available with isolated instruments.

The Clavinova has 11 MIDI functions that are accessed by pressing the appropriate VOICE selector while holding the [MIDI/TRANSPOSE] button. The MIDI functions accessed by the various VOICE selectors are shown in the following chart:

Function Selector 1. Send Channel Select PIANO

2. Receive Channel Select CLAVINOVA TONE

3. Local ON/OFF E. PIANO

4. Program Change ON/OFF HARPSI

5. Control Change ON/OFF VIBES

6. Multi-Timbre Mode ON/OFF GUITAR

7. Split Send Mode STRINGS

8. MIDI Clock Select ORGAN

9. Panel Data Transmit CHOIR

10. MIDI Transpose Transmit UPRIGHT BASS

11. Clavinova Common Voice Mode ON/OFF ELEC BASS

The available settings and procedure for each MIDI function are described below.

MIDI Functions

Send and Receive Channel Select In any MIDI control setup, the MIDI channels of the transmitting and receiving equipment must be matched for

proper data transfer (there are 16 MIDI channels). An OMNI receive mode is also available, which allows reception on all 16 MIDI channels. In the OMNI mode it is not necessary to match the receive channel of the receiving device to the transmit channel of the transmitting device.

ZHold [MIDI/TRANSPOSE] and press [PIANO] to set the send channel or [CLAVINOVA TONE] to set the receive channel.

XUse TEMPO [] and [] buttons to select the desired channel (the selected channel number is shown on the TEMPO display the OMNI ON receive mode is indicated by ALL on the display).

CRelease [MIDI/TRANSPOSE].

NOTES When the power is initially turned ON, MIDI receive is set to the OMNI ON mode and the transmit channel is set to 1.

S91 ......S16 Send channel

r91 ......r16 Receive channel

ALL OMNI ON

NOTES Always use a high-quality MIDI cable to connect MIDI OUT to MIDI IN terminals. Never use MIDI cables longer than about 15 meters, since cables longer than this can pick up noise which can cause data errors.

When using the Clavinova with other MIDI equipment, always refer to the MIDI specifications (implementation chart and MIDI data format) of the equipment used to ensure compatibility.

48 MIDI Functions

Program Change ON/OFF Normally the Clavinova will respond to MIDI program change numbers received from an external keyboard or other

MIDI device, causing the correspondingly numbered Clavinova voice to be selected. The Clavinova will normally also send a MIDI program change number whenever one of its voices is selected, causing the correspondingly numbered voice or program to be selected on the external MIDI device if the device is set up to receive and respond to MIDI pro- gram change numbers.

This function makes it possible to cancel program change number reception and transmission so that voices can be selected on the Clavinova without affecting the external MIDI device, and vice versa. Program Change is automatically turned on when the power is initially turned on.

ZHold [MIDI/TRANSPOSE] and press [HARPSI].

XRelease [MIDI/TRANSPOSE].

Control Change ON/OFF Normally the Clavinova will respond to MIDI control change data received from an external MIDI device or key-

board, causing the selected Clavinova voice to be affected by pedal and other control settings received from the con- trolling device. The Clavinova also transmits MIDI control change information when either of its pedals are operated.

This function makes it possible to cancel control change data reception and transmission if you do not want the Clavinova voices to be affected by control change data received from an external device or vice versa. Control Change is automatically turned on when the power is initially turned on.

Local Control ON/OFF

Local Control refers to the fact that, normally, the Clavinova keyboard con- trols its internal tone generator, allowing the internal voices to be played directly from the keyboard. This situation is Local Control ON since the internal tone generator is controlled locally by its own keyboard.

Local control can be turned off, however, so that the Clavinova keyboard does not play the internal voices, but the appropriate MIDI information is still transmit- ted via the MIDI OUT connector when notes are played on the keyboard. At the same time, the internal tone generator responds to MIDI information received via the MIDI IN connector. This means that while an external MIDI sequencer, for example, plays the Clavinovas internal voices, an external tone generator can be played from the Clavinova keyboard. Local Control is automatically turned ON when the power is initially turned on.

49MIDI Functions

The Multi-Timbre Mode The Multi-Timbre mode is a special mode in which the Clavinova voices can be independently controlled on differ-

ent MIDI channel numbers (1 through 15) by an external MIDI device. The Multi-Timbre mode is off when the power is initially turned on.

The Multi-Timbre mode can be activated as follows:

ZHold [MIDI/TRANSPOSE] and press [GUITAR].

XRelease [MIDI/TRANSPOSE].

In this mode MIDI program change numbers received by the Clavinova select the corresponding Clavinova voices i.e. the same voices selected by the panel controls. The Clavinova Common Voice Mode described on page 50 also allows multi-timbre control of the Clavinova, but with different voice assignments.

Rhythm Instrument Note Assignments The Clavinovas rhythm instruments are controlled via MIDI channel 15. The note assignments for the various rhythm instruments are given below:

MIDI Clock Select This function determines whether the Clavinovas rhythm and ABC timing is controlled by the Clavinovas own in-

ternal clock or an external MIDI clock signal received from external equipment connected to the MIDI IN connector. The Clock Mode is automatically set to INTERNAL when the power is initially turned on.

ZHold [MIDI/TRANSPOSE] and press the [ORGAN].

XRelease [MIDI/TRANSPOSE].

NOTES If the Clock Mode is set to EXTERNAL and a MIDI clock signal is not being received from an external source, the rhythm, ABC and other clock-dependent features will not operate.

MIDI Transpose Transmit This function transposes the pitch of transmitted MIDI note data up or down in semitone intervals up to a maximum

of six semitones. The pitch of notes played on the keyboard is not affected.

ZHold [MIDI/TRANSPOSE] and press [UPRIGHT BASS].

XUse the TEMPO [] and [] buttons to select the desired degree of transposition while holding the [MIDI/TRANSPOSE] button. The amount of transposition selected is shown on the TEMPO display.

CRelease [MIDI/TRANSPOSE].

The Clavinova Common Voice Mode This mode is similar to the Multi-Timbre Mode described on page 49, but MIDI program change numbers received

on all channels are converted to Yamaha Clavinova Common Voice Numbers. MIDI program change numbers transmit- ted when the panel voice selectors are operated are also converted to the common voice numbers.

The Clavinova Common Voice mode is always off when the power is initially turned on. It can be activated as fol- lows:

Although the Clavinova is a self-contained musical instrument that simply be plugged into the AC mains outlet and played, it also features a number of connec- tors for system expansion.

The Connectors

OPTIONAL IN L and R Jacks (CVP-87A & CVP-85A) ..................................................................................

These jacks are intended primarily for use with external synthesizers or tone generator modules.

For example, the outputs of the synthesizer/tone generator can be to the Clavinova OPTIONAL IN jacks, allowing the sound of the synthesizer/tone gen- erator to be reproduced via the Clavinovas internal amplifier and speaker system.

AUX. OUT L/L+R and R Jacks (CVP-87A & CVP-85A) ................................................................................

The AUX. OUT L/L+R and R jacks deliver the output of the Clavinova for connection to an instrument amplifier, mixing console, PA system, or recording equipment. If you will be connecting the Clavinova to a monaural sound system, use only the L/L+R jack. When a plug is inserted into the L/L+R jack only, the left- and right-channel signals are combined and delivered via the L/L+R jack so you dont lose any of the Clavinovas sound.

CAUTION The AUX. OUT jack signal must never be returned to the OPTIONAL IN jacks, either directly or through external equipment.

EXP. PEDAL Jack (CVP-87A) ....................................................................................................................

An optional Yamaha EP-1 Expression Pedal can be connected to this jack to allow foot expression (swell) control.

AUX. OUT R L/L+R

Stereo System

OPTIONAL IN R L

Tone Generator

MIDI IN, THRU and OUT Connectors (MIDI IN and OUT on the CVP-83S) .....................................................

The MIDI IN connector receives MIDI data from an external MIDI device (such as a synthesizer, sequencer, music computer, etc.) which can be used to con- trol the Clavinova. The MIDI THRU connector provided on the CVP-87A and CVP-85A re-transmits any data received at the MIDI IN connector, allowing chaining of several MIDI instruments or other devices. The MIDI OUT connec- tor transmits MIDI data generated by the Clavinova (e.g. note and velocity data produced by playing the Clavinova keyboard).

More details on MIDI are given in MIDI Functions on page 47. THRUIN

NOTES The input signal from the OPTIONAL IN jacks is delivered to the AUX. OUT jacks, but is not affected by the Clavinovas volume control or reverb effect.

52 Troubleshooting If you encounter what appears to be a malfunction, please check the following points before assuming that your Clavinova is faulty.

1. No Sound When the Power is Turned On Is the AC plug properly connected to an AC wall outlet? Check the AC connection carefully. Is the MASTER VOL- UME control turned up to a reasonable listening level?

2. No Rhythm, ABC, or Performance Memory Sound Check the Auto Accompaniment volume control settings. No sound is produced if these are set to their minimum positions.

3. The Clavinova Reproduces Radio or TV Sound This can occur if there is a high-power transmitter in your vicinity. Contact your Yamaha dealer.

4. Intermittent Static Noise This is usually due to turning on or off a household appliance or other electronic equipment which is fed by the same AC mains line as your Clavinova.

5. Interference Appears On Radio or TV Sets Located Near the Clavinova The Clavinova contains digital circuitry which can generate radio-frequency noise. The solution is to move the Clavinova further away from the affected equipment, or vice versa.

6. Distorted Sound When the Clavinova is Connected to An External Amplifier/Speaker System If the Clavinova is connected to a stereo system or instrument amplifier and the sound is distorted, reduce the setting of the Clavinova volume control to a level at which the distortion ceases.
