IMPORTANT Check Your Power Supply

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

WICHTIG Netzspannung berprfen

Vergewissern Sie sich vor dem An- schlieen an das Stromnetz, da die rtliche Netzspannung den Betriebs- spannungswerten auf dem Typenschild an der Unterseite des Instruments ent- spricht. In bestimmten Verkaufs- gebieten ist das Instrument mit einem Spannungswhler an der Unterseite neben der Netzkabeldurchfhrung aus- gestattet. Falls vorhanden, mu der Spannungswhler auf die rtliche Netz- spannung eingestellt werden. Der Spannungswhler wurde werkseitig auf 240 V voreingestellt. Zum Verstellen drehen Sie den Spannungsregler mit einem Schlitzschraubendreher, bis der Zeiger auf den korrekten Spannungs- wert weist

CVP-98/CVP-96

CVP-600

11

CVP-98/96/600

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

ladder or for any other purpose might result in accident or injury.

Only one person should sit on the bench at a time, in order to prevent the possibility of accident or injury.

If the bench screws become loose due to extensive long-term use, tighten them periodically using the included tool.

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

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

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

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

PRECAUTIONS PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING

* Please keep these precautions in a safe place for future reference.

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

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

Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet conditions, or place containers on it containing liquids which might spill into any openings.

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

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

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

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

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

CAUTION Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:

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

When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold the plug itself and not the cord. Pulling by the cord can damage it.

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

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

Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the power for all components. Before turning the power on or off for all components, set all volume levels to minimum.

Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme cold or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day) to prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration or damage to the inter- nal components.

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

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

Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables.

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

On the CVP-600, gently remove dust and dirt with a soft cloth. Do not wipe too hard since small particles of dirt can scratch the instruments finish.

On the CVP-600, bumping the surface of the instrument with metal, porce- lain, or other hard objects can cause the finish to crack or peel. Use caution.

CHAPTER 1: Getting Ready

Features of the Clavinova Large, Easy-to-use LCD Display

The large LCD (along with the dedicated buttons) provides comprehen- sive and easy-to-understand control of the Clavinovas operations (page 12).

Wealth of Rich, Realistic Voices The Clavinova has a wide variety of authentic and dynamic voices (133

Clavinova voices + 480 XG voices + 12 Drum Kits). These include excep- tionally natural-sounding piano, strings and brass voices. Moreover, you can play realistic drum and percussion sounds directly from the keyboard. (See page 32.)

Playback of Song Disks The Clavinova can play back various commercially available song disks.

With the appropriate disk software, you can play the piano part of the song yourself along with playback of a full orchestra or backing band.

Special Guide Functions for Easy Learning With the appropriate disk software, the LCD display and guide lamps

help you learn songs by showing you when and where to play the proper notes. The three-step system helps you to easily and quickly master each song. (See page 100.)

Fun, Dynamic Automatic Accompaniment The Automatic Accompaniment of the Clavinova gives you full and ex-

citing instrumental backing in your favorite music styles, according to the chords you play. There are 100 accompaniment styles (page 47), plus an additional 40 Pianist styles that allow you to enjoy solo piano accompani- ment (page 57).

Easy-to-use Recording Features Depending on your keyboard expertise and preference, you use a variety

of different recording methods: Quick Recording, Track Recording, and Step Recording of Automatic Accompaniment (Chord Sequence Function) (page 105).

Convenient TO HOST Terminals for Direct Connection to Computers

The Clavinova can be used as a high-quality sound source for playback of music software for computers. It can also be used as a master keyboard for inputting performance data and creating music with a computer. (See page 156.)

CVP-98/96/600

Handling Floppy Disks The Music Software Collection disk and one

blank disk are supplied with the Clavinova.

Never open or close the key cover while a disk is extending from the drive (i.e. in the ejected posi- tion). The key cover may contact the disk, possibly damaging 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 the 3.5-inch 2DD or 2HD floppy disks with the Clavinova.

Taking Care of Your Floppy Disks ...........

Do NOT eject the disk during recording or play- back, or at any time when the DISK IN USE lamp is lit. Doing so may damage 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:

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 extending 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 dam- age 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 proce- dure carefully.

Protecting Your Data (Write Protect Tab) ............................................................................................

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 device that emits a strong magnetic field.

Do not store disks in places exposed to direct sunlight 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 conditions

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 posi- tion. 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 oc- curs, 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 136). If the original disk is damaged or your song is deleted, the backup disk can be used instead of the original.

CVP-98/96/600

Basic Operation Virtually all of the Clavinovas operations are done from the LCD display. When you press a button on the panel once, the relevant functions display appears. Depending on the display that ap- pears, you can conveniently perform various functions and change values/settings by using the buttons located directly below, or to the left or right of the LCD, and the data dial and [/+] buttons at the right of the LCD. Once youre familiar with these operations, you can easily use other functions in the same way.

LCD Display and LCD Buttons

The five buttons located under the LCD display are referred to as the LCD buttons. These buttons are used either to select the corresponding items displayed in the LCD or to change the values. The five buttons located to the left and right of the LCD display are referred to as the left/ right LCD buttons. These buttons are used to directly select parameters and settings in the LCD display.

The functions of the LCD buttons differ depending on the selected LCD. Keep in mind that functions are enclosed in two types of rectan- gles, one a soft rectangle with rounded corners, the other a hard rec- tangle with 90-degree corners.

Soft rectangle (with rounded corners)

Hard rectangle

EXIT DISPLAY HOLDPAGE

CVP-98/96/600

Basic Operation

When function is within soft rectangle:...............................

First press the appropriate LCD button under the display (the selected item is highlighted), and use the data dial or [/+] to set the items which are in soft rectangles with rounded corners.

Alternately, after selecting the item, press the LCD button again. For example, when selecting a voice from the display shown below, press the LCD button below VOICE at the lower right. VOICE then is highlighted, and you can select the desired voice by using the data dial or the [/+] buttons.

Display Highlight When selecting an item or parameter

in the display, the indication of the selected item is highlighted (appears in reverse display).

When holding down a button... In some cases, when one of the LCD

buttons or [/+] buttons is held down, the value or setting changes continu- ously.

For functions or parameters that have and or < and > indica- tions, you can reset the value to its basic value by simultaneously press- ing both LCD buttons (or both [/+] buttons).

There are some functions and param- eters whose settings cannot be re- turned to the basic value even by pressing the and buttons, or the < and > buttons simultaneously.

When function is within hard rectangle: .............................

Items within a hard rectangle can be directly selected or switched ON/OFF by simply pressing the corresponding LCD button located di- rectly below the desired item.

For example , when selecting the first Demo song in the display shown below, you can immediately begin playback of the first song by pressing the LCD button under 1.

Settings which can be selected by using the left and right LCD but- tons are surrounded by hard rectangles. Select these settings directly by pressing the left or right LCD buttons.

Some of the Clavinovas functions are contained on successive dis- play pages. To select the next page or previous page, press the appropri- ate PAGE [<] [>] button. The current page and the entire number of pages for the function are indicated at the top right of the display.

CVP-98/96/600

[EXIT] Button

Press [EXIT] in order to leave the current mode or return to the pre- vious display.

[DISPLAY HOLD] Button

The [DISPLAY HOLD] button lets you keep the display from chang- ing. For example, voices and accompaniment styles can be selected by pressing the VOICE button or STYLE button. The display of the se- lected voice/style appears for a few seconds, then changes to the previ- ous display. Displays such as this that appear briefly are called pop-up displays. The [DISPLAY HOLD] lamp flashes to indicate that it is the pop-up display, and that the previous display will appear after a few sec- onds. By pressing the [DISPLAY HOLD] at this point, the lamp stays lit continuously and the selected display stays. Pressing [DISPLAY HOLD] again turns the lamp off and the display returns to the previous one.

If [DISPLAY HOLD] is pressed for any non pop-up display, and the lamp is lit up, the pop-up display cannot be opened.

The duration of pop-up displays can be set with the Pop-up Time parameter (page 153).

Basic Operation

Memory Backup

The Backup function (page 147) can be used to maintain various val- ues and settings, even after the power has been turned off. In the Backup function display, each parameter group to be backed up can be selected individually. Values and settings which are not backed up revert to the basic settings when the power is turned off.

When set to ON, the last setting of these parameters are retained in memory even after the power is turned off. For a list of the backup pa- rameters, see page 147.

If the Clavinova is left unused without the power being turned on for approximately a week, the backed up data is deleted and all the settings return to the basic settings. For this reason, you should turn on the power at least once a week and keep it on for a few minutes.

Backup of the Last Settings For parameters which can be set to

Backup ON/OFF, the basic setting is indicated as Backup of last settings: ON (or OFF) in the explanation of each parameter.

Items set to Backup ON can be re- turned to the basic setting anytime by using the Recall function (page 148).

Display Messages

For ease of operation, the Clavinova shows various messages that either prompt you to the next operation, ask for confirmation, or inform you that the last operation is not effective, valid or appropriate. When such messages appear, follow the instructions as shown. For details about each message, please refer to the Messages section on page 2 in the Reference Manual.

Using the Pedals The Clavinova has three pedals.

Damper Pedal (Right)

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

Sostenuto Pedal (Center)

If you play a note or chord on the keyboard and press the sostenuto pedal while the note(s) are held, those notes will be sustained as long as the pedal is held, but all subsequently played notes will not be sus- tained. This makes it possible to sustain a chord, for example, while other notes are played staccato.

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

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

Soft Pedal (Left)

Pressing this pedal reduces the volume and slightly changes the tim- bre of the notes you play.

You can also assign one of many other functions to this pedal; for example, you can use it to start/stop the Automatic Accompaniment, or use it to play Fill Ins. See page 133 for details.

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

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

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

Starting/Stopping the Accompaniment Style

Starting the Accompaniment Style

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

Auto Fill Press the [MAIN A] or [MAIN B] button during playback of the

style. The lamp of the button flashes and the Fill-in pattern plays auto- matically.

After automatic playback of the Fill-in, the rhythm pattern will change as described: When Main A is playing back and [MAIN A] is pressed

Changes to [MAIN A]. When Main A is playing back and [MAIN B] is pressed

Changes to [MAIN B]. When Main B is playing back and [MAIN A] is pressed

Changes to [MAIN A]. When Main B is playing back and [MAIN B] is pressed

Changes to [MAIN B].

Straight Start ...........................................................................................................

Press the [START/STOP] button.

The lamp lights up and the style starts.

Each of the styles also has two main variations that can be selected by pressing the [MAIN A] or [MAIN B] buttons. The lamp of the cuurently selected pattern lights. Main A is the basic pattern of the style and Main B is a variation or rearrangement of the Main A. Judicious switching between Main A and Main B patterns within a song can add variety and make the overall rhythm more interesting. Switching during playback automatically plays a fill in (Auto Fill) before changing to the new pattern.

The Fill-in pattern keeps repeating when [MAIN A] or [MAIN B] is held down.

If you press the flashing button earlier than the last eighth note of the measure while the Fill-in is playing back, the Auto Fill function will be released.

If you press [MAIN A] or [MAIN B] after the last eighth note of the measure during style playback, the pattern changes to the Fill-in pattern from the next measure.

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

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

To use this, press the [SYNCHRO] button. (The lamp lights.) The [BEAT] lamp flashes in time with the selected tempo, indicating that Synchronized Start is in stand-by. (To cancel Synchronized Start, press the [SYNCHRO] button again so the lamp turns off.)

Press one of the [INTRO], [MAIN A], or [MAIN B] buttons to select the starting pattern, then play the keyboard to start the Style.

If the [SYNCHRO] is pressed during style playback, style playback stops and Synchronized Start is automati- cally set to stand-by.

When the Split mode is used or when a split point is set for Auto Accompani- ment, only the left-hand section of the keyboard can be used for Synchro- nized Start. (See page 36.)

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

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

Simply tap the [TAP] button at the desired tempo four times for 2- and 4-beat styles, three times for 3-beat styles, and five times for 5- beat styles.

When playing a 4-beat song... ...tap 4 times.

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

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

Start With an Introduction.........................................................................

First press the [MAIN A] button, then the [INTRO] button. (The [INTRO] lamp lights and the [MAIN A] lamp flashes.) This indicates that the style will start with the Intro A pattern and be followed automati- cally by the Main A pattern.

To cancel starting with an introduction, press the [INTRO] button so that the lamp turns off.

To start the style, press the [START/STOP] button, or press the [SYNCHRO] button and play a note or chord on the keyboard.

The [INTRO] lamp turns off and the [MAIN A] lamp lights when the pattern changes from Intro A to Main A.

There are two introduction patterns: Intro A and Intro B. If you press [INTRO] after pressing [MAIN B], the style starts with

the Intro B pattern, followed by Main B.

Start with Fade In ...............................................................................................

This function lets you gradually fade in the volume of the Style with any of the start methods above.

Press the [FADE IN/OUT] button (the lamp lights) and fade in start is set to stand-by.

Press the [FADE IN/OUT] button again to turn the lamp off and can- cel the fade in start.

To start the style, press the [START/STOP] button, or press the [SYNCHRO] button and play a note or chord on the keyboard.

The lamp flashes during the fade in, and the lamp turns off when the fade in is completed.

[FADE IN/OUT] can be set to on no matter which pattern ([INTRO], [MAIN A], [MAIN B], [ENDING]) is selected.

Starting styles with the Left Pedal ..................................................

You can also use the left pedal to start the style by setting the the Left Pedal function (page 133) to Start/Stop. The pedal can also be set to control Break, Fade-in/out, Fill-in, or Ending. This setting is exception- ally convenient, since it lets you control the style with your foot while leaving both hands free to play.

[BEAT] .............................................................................................................................

During style playback, the left-most beat lamp (red) flashes on the first beat of each measure, and the other lamps (green) flash for each successive beat. The current tempo and measure number are shown at the left side of the LCD display.

Starting/Stopping the Accompaniment Style

If you press the [MAIN A] button before pressing [INTRO] and then press [MAIN B], playback starts with Intro A and continues automatically with the Main B pattern. (The reverse is also true: i.e., selecting Intro B with [MAIN B] before pressing [INTRO], then pressing [MAIN A] to continue with Main A.)

When the Left Pedal function (page 133) is set to BREAK, you can use the left pedal to trigger a break (silence) in the accompaniment for dynamic effect.

Holding down the left pedal creates the break, and playback resumes from the top of the next measure after the pedal is released.

To cancel the break, press the left pedal again during the break.

Stopping the accompaniment style

To stop style playback, press the [START/STOP] button. To playback an ending pattern before stopping, press the [ENDING]

button. Press [ENDING] a second time during playback to produce a

ritardando (gradually slowing) ending. Different ending patterns are provided for the MAIN A and MAIN B variations. (The [ENDING] lamp lights during ending playback). The [MAIN A] lamp also lights when changing from the Main A pattern, and the [MAIN B] lamp lights when entering from Main B.) The ending begins from the top of the next measure if the [ENDING] button is pressed on or after the second beat of a measure.

You can have the accompaniment fade out (gradually decrease in volume to silence) and automatically stop by pressing the [FADE IN/ OUT] button. Then, it automatically sets to fade in stand-by (the lamp lights) and stays in this condition for a few seconds before releasing.

[FADE IN/OUT] can be set to on no matter which pattern ([INTRO], [MAIN A], [MAIN B], [ENDING]) is selected.

Playing with the Auto Accompaniment

The Clavinova includes a sophisticated Auto Accompaniment system that can provide automated rhythm, bass and chord backing for your performance in 100 different styles.

The playback data of the Auto Accompaniment is normally not output through the MIDI [OUT]. However it can be output via MIDI by using the Auto Accompaniment/Harmony Send parameter (page 146) in the Func- tion MIDI 3 page.

The Auto Accompaniment function lets you produce automatic ac- companiment in the selected style simply by indicating chords on the keyboard.

Single Finger The Single Finger method makes it easy to produce accompaniment

using major, seventh, minor and minor-seventh chords by pressing cer- tain keys (according to simple rules) in the left range of the keyboard (lower than the split point indicated by the keyboard guide lamp) . (See page 58.)

Fingered The Fingered method lets you produce automatic accompaniment by

playing full chords in the left range of the keyboard (lower than the split point). (See page 59.)

Multi Finger With Multi Finger, you can use either the Single Finger or Fingered

method to indicate chords for the accompaniment. (See page 59.)

Full Keyboard Full Keyboard automatically produces appropriate automatic accom-

paniment for virtually anything you play on the keyboard, in any range. (See page 59.)

Types of Auto Accompaniment

Detailed explanations of the use of Single Finger, Multi Finger, Fingered, and Full Keyboard are given on pages 58 and 59.

Playing with the Auto Accompaniment

Fingered To play Auto Accompaniment, play any chord in the left range (below

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

If the Clavinova cannot recognize the played chord, * will appear instead of the chord name in the display.

Fingered Chords The chord types below can be played with the Fingered method. For a fingering chart showing all chords in the example key of C, see page 36 in the Reference Manual.

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 same accompaniment continues even after releasing the chord in the left range until the next chord is played.

On-bass Chords To play on-bass chords, press the

desired bass note one octave lower than the chord. For example, in order to play F on C (F chord with a C bass), play an F chord (F, A and C) and press C +C (octave notes) in the lower range of the keyboard. (Use this function for chord sequence recording.)

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

No chord (i.e., rhythm-only accompa- niment) can be produced by pressing any three consecutive keys (e.g., C, C#, D) simultaneously. This lets you create dynamic rhythm breaks in the accompaniment. A - - - indication will appear instead of a chord name in the display. Multi Finger

This method allows you to produce accompaniment using either Sin- gle Finger or Fingered. However, when indicating minor, seventh or minor seventh chords, it is necessary to play the white key and/or black key nearest the root note of the chord.

Full Keyboard When the Full Keyboard mode is selected, the Clavinova will auto-

matically create appropriate accompaniment while you play just about anything using both hands, anywhere on the keyboard. You dont have to worry about specifying the accompaniment chords. The name of the detected chord will appear in the display. (Although Full Keyboard is designed to work with many songs, some arrangements may not be suit- able for use with this feature.)

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

Keep in mind... The DUAL or SPLIT mode can be

used with the Auto Accompaniment.

Press [START/STOP], [ENDING] or [FADE IN/OUT] to stop the Auto Accompaniment.

You can also turn off the Auto Accompaniment by pressing the [ACMP ON] button (the lamp turns off).

Individual Part Volume Control

The Clavinova has five accompaniment parts: Bass, Chord, Pad, Phrase, and Rhythm.

BASS The Bass part uses voices appropriate to each style, including acoustic bass and synth bass.

CHORD The Chord part provides appropriate rhythmic chordal accom- paniment for each style. Youll find guitar, piano, and other chordal instruments here.

PAD The Pad part plays long chords where necessary, using sus- tained instruments such as strings, organ, and choir.

PHRASE The Phrase part is used for embellishments such as punchy brass stabs, arpeggiated chords, and other extras that make the accompaniment more interesting.

RHYTHM This is the main rhythm part. The Rhythm part usually plays one of the drum kits.

By adjusting the volume balance of the various parts and setting some parts volume to 0, you can create different types of accompaniment and make changes to the basic style accompani- ment.

Some styles may not use all five ac- companiment parts.

Each volume setting of the five accompaniment parts can be adjusted individually by using the mixer function. Press the [MIXER] button (the lamp lights) and the MIXER display appears.

The [MAIN A], [MAIN B], [ENDING] and [FADE IN/OUT] operation can be done by using the left pedal (see page 133), conveniently allowing you to change sections without taking your hands from the keyboard.

Left Pedal and Harmony If the Left Pedal Function is set to HARMONY ON/OFF (see page

133), harmonization of notes played on the right-hand section of the key- board only occurs while the left pedal is pressed. This allows you to add harmony only to certain phrases in the middle of the song as you play, without having to take your hands from the keyboard.

The Left Pedal HARMONY ON/OFF function is not effective when the Har- mony feature is off (i.e. the [HAR- MONY] lamp is not lit).

Each style has programmed panel setups of voices and effects that can be recalled easily and instantly via the One Touch Setting function. Each style has four different One Touch Settings.

For a list of the One Touch Setting parameters, refer to page 35 of the Reference Manual.

One Touch Setting

There are no One Touch Settings for the accompaniment styles of the [PI- ANIST] or [DISK/CUSTOM] groups.

Using the One Touch Setting Function.......................................

ZSelect the desired style in the normal way, then press the [ONE TOUCH SETTING] button.

The lamp lights and the One Touch Setting pop-up display ap- pears.

When using the ONE TOUCH SET- TING function, the Auto Accompani- ment turns on automatically. If the [ONE TOUCH SETTING] button is turned on before starting the style, Synchronized Start is set to stand-by.

If you change the One Touch Setting during style playback, the tempo set- ting remains the same.

Harmony will not be turned on if the Full Keyboard mode is selected, even if the selected One Touch Setting setup includes Harmony On.

XSelect the desired setting by using the left/right LCD buttons. The data dial, [/+] buttons, and PAGE [</>] buttons can also be used. You can also select the setting by using the SELECT buttons. Press the SET button to actually change the panel setup to that of the selected setting.

The menu for the selected style is shown at first in the display; however, the menus for all other styles can be selected in this display.

The panel setup called up here can be freely changed according to your preferences. You can also save it to memory by using the Registraiton function (page 83).

To exit One Touch Setting, press the [ONE TOUCH SETTING] button again (the lamp turns off), and the previous panel setup before using One Touch Setting is recalled.

Virtual Arranger

To use this, press the [VIRTUAL ARRANGER] button (the lamp lights). The lamp automatically lights when the power is turned on. With Virtual Arranger, you can play simple chords, and the Clavinova automatically embellishes them and provides melodic Auto Accompani- ment.

Virtual Arranger is effective only when Auto Accompaniment is set to ON and the Full Keyboard mode is not selected.

The melodic Auto Accompaniment may sometimes not match with the melody or chord progression of the song being played.

When a [DISK/CUSTOM] style is selected, the Virtual Arranger function has no effect, even if set to on.

This function lets you have the Auto Accompaniment sound only when you hold down keys in the left-hand range (below and including the split point). Auto Accompaniment automatically stops when you release your left hand from the keyboard, and starts again when you play the keys again. This is useful for beginning players who have difficulty playing in precise time. It is also effective for creating accompaniment breaks during the performance.

This function can only be used when Auto Accompaniment is set to on. However, it cannot be used when Full Keyboard is selected.

Custom Style

The Clavinova Custom Style feature allows you to create original accompaniment styles that can be later recalled and played at any time, just like the presets. Up to 12 custom styles can be maintained in internal memory at the same time, and any number can be saved to disk for later reloading and use. The basic custom style recording procedure is outlined below.

Custom style data is not retained in memory when the power is turned off, so be sure to save your custom styles to disk before turning the power off.

One pre-programmed temporary style is automatically loaded into the [DISK/ CUSTOM] memory whenever the power is turned on. (Memory is common to the Custom Styles and the loaded styles from the optional Style File disks page 80.)

Style File Load

Style files from optional Yamaha Style File disks, or disks containing custom style files youve created yourself, can be loaded into the Clavinova and played as required.

About the Yamaha Style File Format The Style File Format is Yamahas original auto-accompaniment format which

has evolved through years of development and refinement. Style File Format allows you to use exceptionally high quality accompaniments with a variety of chord types through its unique conversion system. In addition to the internal styles, the optional style disks let you use different sophisticated styles cre- ated with the Style File Format.

Loaded disk styles will be retained in memory only until the power is turned off.

One pre-programmed temporary style is automatically loaded into the [DISK/ CUSTOM] memory whenever the power is turned on.

ZInsert the Style Disk.......................................................................................

Insert the Style File 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 IN USE lamp will light briefly while the Clavinova reads and identifies the disk. When an appropriate Style File disk is inserted, the STYLE FILE LOAD display (see step 2 below) will appear automatically. If the disk is already inserted and the STYLE FILE LOAD display is not showing, press the [DISK/CUS- TOM] selector to call the DISK/CUSTOM STYLE display and press the LOAD SINGLE button.

Loading Disk Styles

If a disk containing both song and style files is loaded, the SONG PLAY mode will automatically be selected. In this case press the SONG [PLAY] button so that its indicator goes out to exit from the SONG PLAY mode, then press the [DISK/CUSTOM] button.

Guide Control The Clavinova has a special Guide function which allows you to practice by using the appropriate disk software. The piano roll display and the keyboard guide lamp indicate which keys you should play, and when you should play them. You can even practice at your own pace since the Clavinova pauses playback of the accompaniment until you play the correct keys. The Guide function can also be used during playback of the 4. GUIDE Demo song in the Demo mode. Press one of the GUIDE CONTROL buttons during playback of the 4. GUIDE Demo song in the Demo mode, and use the Guide function to play the melody part.

Guide Methods and Piano Roll

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

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

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

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

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

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

When the keyboard guide lamps do not flash... The guide lamps may not flash in the

case of a few songs because of a special guide system. In case of such songs, however, you can switch to the Next Note method so that the lamps flash, if you like. See the Other Guide-related Functions on page 103.

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

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

Playback of one phrase repeats three times, then is followed automati- cally by the next phrase.

Number of Repeats You can set the number of times the

phrase will be repeated from the SONG PLAY [GUIDE MODE] display (display page 5). (See page 104.)

The keyboard guide lamps can be turned on or off as desired.

Piano Roll To show the piano roll in the display, press any GUIDE CONTROL

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

ZSet up the desired song for practicing.....................................

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

Select the song and cancel the part that you wish to practice your- self from the SONG PLAY [MAIN] display (display page 1).

Using the Guide Function

Before Practicing Before starting to practice, playback

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

Auto Part Cancel If you turn on the Guide function with-

out cancelling playback of the part to be practiced, 1/RIGHT part is guided (or the 2/LEFT part is guided when the 1/RIGHT part contains no data). How- ever, when you cancel the part before turning on Guide, the setting will be kept until the song is changed.

Piano Roll On/Off The piano roll display can be turned

on or off from the SONG PLAY [GUIDE MODE] display (display page 5). (See page 104.)

The correct melody plays back no matter which note you play in the EASY PLAY mode.

The Guide method can be changed during playback. (However, the Guide mode cannot be

changed for songs in which SPECIAL is indicated in the GUIDE MODE loca- tion in SONG PLAY [GUIDE MODE] display page 5.)

The [PAUSE] button cannot be used in the Next Note or Sound Repeat meth- ods.

VStop your practice session. ..................................................................

The Guide function stops automatically when playback reaches the end of the song. You can also stop song playback by pressing the [PLAY/STOP] button.

To turn off the Guide function, press the appropriate button [EASY PLAY], [NEXT NOTE] or [SOUND REPEAT] so that the lamp turns off.

The keyboard guide lamps light corre- sponding to the notes played by the 1/ RIGHT and 2/LEFT parts during song playback, even when Guide is set to off unless the LAMP button is turned off in the SONG PLAY [GUIDE MODE] display. The guide lamps indicate the notes to be played by both the 1/RIGHT and 2/LEFT parts when both are turned on or off; when only one of the parts is turned off, the lamps indicate the notes to be played by the part that is turned off.

The guide part can be selected, the guide lamps can be turned on and off, and the Guide function itself can be turned on or off during playback.

Playback tempo can be set to any desired value after a song has been selected by using the TEMPO [/+] buttons.

The positions of the guide lamps will not change, even if the Transpose function (page 130) is used to trans- pose the pitch of the keyboard.

The Guide function may not work properly with software which was not produced for independent left- and right-hand playback.

Since the Guide phrases used in the Sound Repeat method are automati- cally determined by the Clavinova, they may not precisely match the actual musical phrases. Also, the phrases may become shorter when the Guide function is used for both the left- and right-hand parts.

Other Guide-related Functions

Various settings related to the Guide functions can be made in the SONG PLAY [GUIDE MODE] display (display page 5). The settings made in this display will

also be effective in the Guide function during playback of the 4. GUIDE Demo song in the Demo mode.

GUIDE MODE ..........................................................................................................

NORMAL is ususally displayed in the location of the GUIDE MODE. Change the indication to ENSEMBLE by pressing the GUIDE MODE button; the part which was set to Part Cancel in the SONG PLAY [MAIN] display (display page 1) can then be played with the regular Part Cancel function and the other part (not set to Part Cancel) can be played with the Easy Play function.

The ENSEMBLE mode is effective only for songs which have data in both the [1/RIGHT] and [2/LEFT] parts.

The ENSEMBLE mode cannot be used when Next Note or Sound Re- peat is selected.

When Next Note is selected and SPECIAL is indicated in the GUIDE MODE display, a special Guide method is engaged for the selected song. To return the normal Next Note mode, press the GUIDE MODE button so that the indication chages to NORMAL.

The SPECIAL indication appears automatically depending on the song being played back. The SPECIAL indication will not appear, even when pressing the GUIDE MODE button, when playing back songs that do not feature the special method.

Song Recording The Clavinova features comprehensive song recording functions that allow you to record your own performances to floppy disks. Three recording methods are available: Quick Recording (page 107), which lets you record quickly and easily; Track Recording (page 110), with which you can record multiple instrumental parts; and Chord Sequence (page 116), which lets you step-record Auto Accompaniment chords. The music you create by recording is called a song. Up to approximately 60 songs can be recorded on a single disk, depend- ing on the amount of data contained in each song. Before you can record, however, you must format a new disk. (See page 106).

Structure of a Song A song can be made up of several instrumental parts, each assigned to

a different track, as shown in the example below.

Various confirmation, alert, and error messages may appear in the display during operation. Refer to the Messages section (page 2 in the Reference Manual) for information on the messages.

Refer to Handling Floppy Disks (page 7) for information on using floppy disks.

Songs recorded by the CVP-98/96/ 600 are saved as XG/SMF (format 0) files. See page 8 in the Reference Manual for information on the XG/ SMF (format 0) format.

Recorded song data is not output through the MIDI OUT terminal when played back.

The chord sequence data now resides in tracks 9 through 16, and can be played back in the normal way. Add other tracks as desired by using the standard track selection and recording procedure. You can also record over the Auto Accompaniment parts and replace them with original material if you like by using the standard track selection and record procedure.

The song recorded via the Chord Sequence function can be modified later by re-entering the Chord Se- quence mode and making the desired changes. However, keep in mind that any data recorded over the Auto Ac- companiment parts (with normal track recording) will be replaced by the preset accompaniment style data. (For example, even if youve recorded your own bass part, it will be erased and replaced by the original bass pattern if you correct the data in the Chord Sequence display.)

Page 2 of the CHORD SEQUENCE display contains a number of versatile functions that help you enter chords more efficiently.

Finally, press the [REC] button and a Save recorded data? message will appear.

Set the Send Channel SEND CH ..........................................................

In any MIDI control setup, the MIDI channels of the transmitting and receiving equipment must be matched for proper data transfer (channels 1 through 16). This function sets the MIDI transmit channels of the Clavinova .

Independent MIDI channels can be set for the following three differ- ent types of play data.

LEFT Left voice in the Split mode

RIGHT1 Right voice in the Split mode/1st voice in the Dual mode/voice for normal keyboard performance

RIGHT2 2nd voice in the Dual mode

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

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

Functions related to MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) can be called up from pages 9 through 11.

If you are using the MIDI terminals, set the HOST SELECT switch to MIDI.

Sync ..................................................................................................................................

Playback of songs and Auto Accompaniment is normally controlled by the internal clock (INT.) of the Clavinova at a specific tempo. By setting this clock to EXT., the Clavinovas tempo can be controlled by an external sequencer or rhythm machine. For example, this lets you play the Auto Accompaniment of the Clavinova in perfect synchroniza- tion with an external sequencer.

To set this, press the SYNC. button. The data dial and the [/+] but- tons cannot be used.

Sync Settings: INT. (internal clock)/EXT.

If the clock mode is set to EXT. and a MIDI clock signal is not being received from an external source, features related to the Auto Accompaniment and the accompaniment styles cannot be used.

MIDI 2 Display PAGE 10

The MIDI 2 function display contains the MIDI filter settings which can be used to turn transmission and reception of certain types of MIDI data on or off.

Program ON/OFF ................................................................................................

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

Depending on your particular MIDI setup, you may find that this fea- ture is convenient in some cases and not in others. Set PROGRAM to off if you wish to disable the program change transmission/reception. Set PROGRAM to Tx&Rx to turn on transmission/reception of pro- gram change messages.

Program Settings: Tx&Rx (transmitted/re-

ceived), OFF (not transmitted/re- ceived)

Basic setting: Tx&Rx Backup of last settings: OFF

Bank MSB and LSB messages can be transmitted and received even when Program is set to off.

Local Control ON/OFF LOCAL .............................................................

Local Control refers to the fact that, normally, the Clavinova key- board controls its internal tone generator, allowing the internal voices to be played directly from the keyboard. This situation is called Local Control ON. When the local control is set to off, the keyboard and sound source are separated and no sound is output through the Clavinova when playing the keyboard. However, the data of the key- board performance is output through MIDI. By setting Local Control to off, you can play an external MIDI tone generator from the keyboard of the Clavinova without sounding the internal voices.

To set this, press the LOCAL button. The data dial and [/+] buttons cannot be used.

Local Control Settings: ON/OFF Basic setting: ON Backup of last settings: OFF

The program numbers of the Clavinovas voices are standarized ac- cording to the XG voice allocation. See the Voice List on page 26 in the Reference Manual for details.

Control ON/OFF....................................................................................................

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

Control change data recognized by the Clavinova is listed in detail on page 10 in the Reference Manual.

Control Settings: Tx&Rx (transmitted/re-

ceived), OFF (not transmitted/re- ceived)

Basic setting: Tx&Rx Backup of last settings: OFF

System Exclusive ON/OFF .......................................................................

System exclusive messages are used for more advanced or detailed MIDI control, or for controls related to specific manufacturers devices. Set SYS EX. to off if you desire not to transmit/receive the system exclu- sive messages. Set SYS EX. to Tx&Rx enable transmission and re- ception of these messages.

System exclusive data recognized by the Clavinova is listed in detail on page 12 in the Reference Manual.

ceived), OFF (not transmitted/re- ceived)

Basic setting: Tx&Rx Backup of last settings: OFF

Start/Stop ON/OFF ............................................................................................

By using the Start/Stop command, the rhythm and performance of the receiving device can be started/stopped from the sending device via MIDI. For example, you can transmit the start/stop command from an external MIDI sequencer to start and stop the Auto Accompaniment or song playback on the Clavinova. Also, the playback of an external MIDI sequencer or rhythm machine can be started/stopped by starting/stopping the Auto Accompaniment on the Clavinova. Set START/STOP to off if you want to disable transmission/reception of start/stop. Set it to on to enable transmission/reception.

AUX IN [L/L+R] Jacks .....................................................................................

Do not return the sound output through AUX OUT [L/L+R] [R] jacks to the AUX IN [L/L+R] [R] jacks. Also, when connecting the AUX OUT [L/L+R] [R] jacks to external audio equipment, do not connect these devices back into the Clavinovas AUX IN [L/L+R] [R] jacks. Since the input sound from the Clavinovas AUX IN [L/L+R] [R] is output through the Clavinovas AUX OUT [L/L+R] [R] as is, connecting as described above may result in feed- back, making normal playback im- possible and even resulting in dam- age to the instrument.

Internal [MASTER VOLUME] and [REVERB] settings cannot be applied to the input sound received at the AUX IN [L/L+R] [R] jacks.

Use the AUX IN [L/L+R] and AUX OUT [L/L+R] jacks for mono input and mono output, respectively.

To use headphones, connect them to one of the [PHONES] jacks (standard 1/4" phone jacks). The internal speaker system of the Clavinova is automatically shut off when a pair of headphones are connected. Two people can enjoy the sound together by connecting two pairs of headphones to the two available termi- nals.

The sounds of other instruments or tone generator modules can be output through the speaker system of the Clavinova by connecting audio cables to the jacks as shown below.RL/L+R

Connecting to a Personal Computer Although the Clavinova can be connected to a personal computer via the MIDI IN/OUT connectors and a MIDI interface, the TO HOST connector and HOST SELECT switch allow direct connec- tion to Apple Macintosh or IBM-PC/AT personal computers for sequencing and other music applications without the need for a separate MIDI interface.

Connecting to an Apple Macintosh Series Computer .......

Connect the TO HOST connector of the Clavinova to the modem or printer port on your Macintosh, depending on which port your MIDI software is using for MIDI data communication, using a standard Macintosh 8-pin system periph- eral cable. Set the HOST SELECT switch to the Mac position.

You may also have to make other MIDI interface settings on the computer side, depending on the type of software you use (refer to your software owners manual). In any case the clock speed should be set to 1 MHz.

Connecting to an IBM-PC/AT Series Computer ................

Connect the TO HOST connector of the Clavinova to the RS-232C port on your IBM computer, using a standard 8-pin MINI DIN 9-pin D-SUB cross cable. Set the HOST SELECT switch to the PC-2 position.

Refer to your software owners manual for information on any settings you might have to make on the computer side.

When using the [TO HOST] terminal of the Clavinova, first turn the power off on both the Clavinova and the computer before connecting the cable. After connecting the cable, turn the power of the compu- ter on first, then the Clavinova.

When not using the [TO HOST] terminal of the Clavinova, make sure the cable is disconnected from the [TO HOST] terminal. If the cable is left connected, the Clavinova may not func- tion properly.

When the HOST SELECT switch is set to Mac, PC-1, or PC-2, no data transfer occurs via the MIDI connec- tors. To use the MIDI connec- tors for connection via a standard MIDI interface, set the HOST SELECT switch to MIDI.

If your system doesnt work properly with the connections and settings listed above, your software may require different settings. Check your software operation manual and if it requires a 31,250 bps. data transfer rate, set the HOST SELECT switch to PC-1.
