Getting Ready to Play
Your Digital Piano runs on standard household power. Be
sure to turn off power whenever you are not using the Digital
Piano.
Use only the AC adaptor (JEITA Standard, with unified
polarity plug) that comes with this Digital Piano. Use of a
different type of AC adaptor can cause malfunction of the
Digital Piano.
Specified AC Adaptor: AD-A12150LW
• Use the supplied power cord to connect the AC adaptor as
shown in the illustration below.
Note the following important precautions to avoid
damage to the power cord.
During Use
• Never pull on the cord with excessive force.
• Never repeatedly pull on the cord.
• Never twist the cord at the base of the plug or connector.
During Movement
• Before moving the Digital Piano, be sure to unplug the AC
adaptor from the power outlet.
During Storage
• Loop and bundle the power cord, but never wind it around
the AC adaptor.
• Never connect the AC adaptor (JEITA Standard, with
unified polarity plug) that comes with this Digital Piano
to any other device besides this Digital Piano. Doing so
creates the risk of malfunction.
• Make sure the Digital Piano is turned off before
plugging in or unplugging the AC adaptor.
• The AC adaptor will become warm to the touch after
very long use. This is normal and does not indicate
malfunction.

Playing the Digital Piano
1. Press 2.
This turns on power.
• To turn off the Digital Piano, press 2 again.
2. Try playing something on the keyboard. Use 1
to adjust volume.
• If you press 2 only lightly, the display will light up
momentarily but power will not turn on. This does not
indicate malfunction. Press 2 firmly and completely
to turn on power.
• Turning off the Digital Piano causes most current
settings to be cleared. The Digital Piano will revert to
initial settings the next time you turn it on.
This is true for all settings except for sample sound
protection. Once you turn it on it remains on until you
turn it off again.
• The message “Pls wait” will remain on the display
while a data save operation is in progress. Do not
perform any other operation while it is displayed.
Turning off the Digital Piano or removing the memory
card can cause Digital Piano data to be deleted or
become corrupted.
If you do not perform any operation for 30 minutes, the Digital
Piano will turn off automatically.
■ Disabling Auto Power Off
You can disable Auto Power Off to ensure that power is not
turned off automatically during a concert, etc.
1. While holding down bp (TONE), turn on power.
Auto Power Off will be disabled.
Using headphones cuts off output from the built-in speakers,
which means you can practice playing even late at night
without disturbing others.
• Be sure to turn down the volume level before connecting
headphones.
• Headphones do not come with the Digital Piano.
• Use commercially available headphones. See page E-3 for
information about options.
• Do not listen to very high volume output over
headphones for long period. Doing so creates the risk
of hearing damage.
• If you are using headphones that require an adaptor
plug, make sure you do not leave the adaptor plugged
in when removing the headphones.

The metronome lets you play and practice along with a steady
beat to help keep you on tempo.
1. Press bm.
This starts the metronome.
2. Press bm again to stop the metronome.
You can configure the metronome to use a bell sound for the
first beat of each measure of the song you are playing.
• You can specify 0, or a value from 2 to 6 as the number of
beat per measure.
• When playing a built-in song, the beats per measure setting
(which determines when the bell sounds) is configured
automatically for the currently selected song.
1. Hold down bm until the beats per measure
setting screen appears on the display.
• If you do not perform any operation for a few seconds
after the beats per measure setting screen appears, the
display will return to the screen displayed before you
pressed bm.
2. Use br (10-key) to enter the number of beats
per measure.
• The bell will not sound if you specify 0 for this setting. In
this case, all beats are indicated by a click sound. This
setting lets you practice with a steady beat, without
worrying how many beats there are in each measure.
Use the following procedure to change the tempo of the
metronome.
1. Press 9.
Use w (slower) and q (faster) to change the tempo
setting. Holding down either button changes the setting at
high speed.
• Pressing q and w at the same time will initialize the
tempo setting in accordance with the currently selected
song or rhythm.
• Pressing 9 causes the tempo value to flash on the
display. While the tempo value is flashing, you can use
br (10-key) to change it.
Note that you must input leading zeros, so 89 is input
as 089.
• The tempo value will stop flashing if you do not perform
any operation for a short while.
The metronome volume setting is changed automatically with
the volume level of the currently selected Auto
Accompaniment or song. The metronome volume cannot be
adjusted independently.
• For information about changing the Auto Accompaniment
volume, see page E-41.
• For information about changing the song volume, see page
E-28.
• You cannot adjust the balance between the metronome
and note volume during Auto Accompaniment and built-in
tune play.

Sampling Sounds and Playing Them on the Digital
Piano
You can use the Digital Piano to sample a sound from a
microphone, and then play the sound with keyboard keys. For
example, you could sample the bark of your dog and then use
the sound in a melody. The sampling feature is a great way to
create new sounds that are highly creative.
• Turn off the microphone and the Digital Piano before
connecting them.
1. Connect a microphone.
• Use a commercially available dynamic microphone.
• You cannot sample sounds input from through the AUDIO
IN jack.
2. Turn the volume levels of the Digital Piano
down.
3. Turn on the microphone and then the Digital
Piano.
4. Use em (MIC VOLUME) to adjust the volume
level of microphone input.

Using Built-in Songs to Master Keyboard Play
To master a song, it is best to break it up into shorter parts
(phrases), master the phrases, and then put everything
together. Your Digital Piano comes with a Step Up Lesson
feature that helps you to do just that.
The built-in songs are pre-divided into phrases to help you
master keyboard play.
Step Up Lesson takes you through practice of the right hand
part, left hand part, and both hand parts for each phrase of a
song. Master all of the phrases and you master the song.
