Introduction

This Owner’s Manual explains how to use this electronic keyboard. It does not teach music.

Connecting Power

Connecting an AC or DC adapter automatically disconnects internal batteries.

Always disconnect the AC or DC adapter when you finish using the keyboard.

Connecting Headphones

Connecting headphones disconnects the keyboard’s built-inspeakers.

."%#76+10".

Using Batteries

Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

If you do not plan to use the keyboard with batteries for a week or more, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.

Using AC or DC Power

You must use a (Class 2 for AC)

power source that supplies 9V DC

!

and delivers at least 300 mA. Its

center tip must be set to positive

and its plug must fit the keyboard's DC 9V jack. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the keyboard or the adapter.

Always connect the adapter to the keyboard before you plug it into the power source and unplug the adapter from the power source before you unplug it from the keyboard.

To protect your hearing, follow these guidelines when you use headphones.

Set the volume to the lowest setting before you begin listening. After you begin listening, adjust the volume to a comfortable level.

Do not listen at extremely high volume levels. Extended high-volumelistening can lead to permanent hearing loss.

Once you set the volume, do not increase it. Over time, your ears adapt to the volume level, so a volume level that does not cause discomfort might still damage your hearing.

Always turn off power to your keyboard and the other MIDI device before you connect or disconnect MIDI cables.

As you make the cable connections, be sure to align the MIDI cable pins with the matching holes on your keyboard’s MIDI OUT terminal. If you have trouble plugging in the cable, do not force it! You might damage the plug or the instrument.

±"016'"±"

Connecting your keyboard to another MIDI device requires a MIDI cable (not supplied). See “Making the MIDI Connections”.

The keyboard’s auto-rhythms,prerecorded tunes, sustain information, and transpose information cannot be sent as MIDI data.

If you send MIDI data to a device such as a personal computer, the computer will need a sound card, software to interpret the data, and a pair of speakers (none supplied).

RadioShack carries sound cards, MIDI cable, speakers, and software.

MIDI Channel 10 is preset to percussion data in some MIDI receiving devices, depending on the specific device you select.

75+0)"/+&+

Your keyboard includes a feature called MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface). MIDI is the universal standard for sending and receiving performance data between all types of electronic musical instruments, regardless of the manufacturer.

Using MIDI, you can play music on your keyboard and another instrument at the same time while pressing the keys on only one, record your music to a sequencer, acquire a wider selection of preset tones from a sound module, and much more.

#$176"/+&+

Every MIDI-equippedinstrument has a MIDI OUT terminal, and some also have a MIDI IN and MIDI THRU terminal. Each of these terminals serves a different purpose.

MIDI OUT sends MIDI data to (“talks to”) the other MIDI instrument(s).

MIDI IN receives (“listens to”) MIDI data sent by the other MIDI instrument(s).

MIDI THRU lets you connect (“network”) additional MIDI instruments, and sends along to other MIDI devices a copy of all data it receives through its MIDI IN terminal.

Your keyboard has a MIDI OUT terminal.

The cable that connects MIDI devices does not actually carry sound between them, like a speaker wire carries sound from a receiver to a speaker. Instead, MIDI-equippeddevices communicate with each other using digital codes (instructions). One MIDI device sends digital instructions representing exactly what is being played on it. The other MIDI device receives and translates those instructions, then produces (or records) the sound as it was played on the first device. ±ý

/#-+0)"6*'"/+&+" %100'%6+105

To connect your keyboard to another MIDIequipped device, you must use a MIDI cable (available at your local RadioShack store). The keyboard’s MIDI data is sent automatically as you play. .

1.Use a MIDI cable to connect MIDI OUT on the back of the keyboard to the other device’s MIDI IN terminal.

2.Repeatedly press MIDI to select a MIDI channel. MIDI uses up to 16 channels to exchange data. As in a TV broadcast, different channels send different data.

3.To transmit to the MIDI device, play the melody using the keyboard’s black and white keys.
