Getting Ready to Play
Either an AC adaptor or batteries can be used to power this
Digital Keyboard. Normally, use of AC adaptor power is
recommended.
• The AC adaptor does not come with this Digital Keyboard.
Purchase it separately from your retailer. See page EN-3
for information about options.
Make sure that you use only the AC adaptor specified for this
Digital Keyboard. Use of a different type of AC adaptor can
cause malfunction.
• Be sure to turn off Digital Keyboard power before
connecting or disconnecting the AC adaptor.
• The AC adaptor will become warm to the touch after
very long use. This is normal and does not indicate
malfunction.
• To prevent breaking of the wire, take care to avoid
putting any type of load on the power cord.
• Never insert metal, pencils, or any other objects into
the product’s 9.5V DC terminal. Doing so creates the
risk of accident.
• Be sure to turn off power before loading batteries.
• It is up to you to prepare six commercially available
batteries. Do not use oxyride batteries or any other
nickel based batteries.
1. Open the battery cover on the bottom of the
Digital Keyboard.
2. Load six batteries into the battery compartment.
• CTK-4400: AA-size batteries
• WK-240/WK-245: D-size batteries
Make sure the positive + and negative - ends of the
batteries are facing as shown in the illustration.
3. Insert the tabs of the battery cover into the
holes on the side of the battery compartment,
and close the cover.
■ Low Battery Indication
The indicator shown below starts to flash to let you know
when battery power is low. Replace the batteries with new
ones.

Playing the Digital Keyboard
1. Press 1 (P).
This turns on power.
• To turn off the Digital Keyboard, press 1 again.
2. Try playing something on the keyboard. Use 2
to adjust volume.
• If you press 1 only lightly, the display will light up
momentarily but power will not turn on. This does not
indicate malfunction. Press 1 firmly and completely
to turn on power.
• Turning off the Digital Keyboard causes most current
settings to be cleared. The Digital Keyboard 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 Keyboard can cause Digital
Keyboard data to be deleted or become corrupted.
• Pressing 1 to turn off power actually puts the Digital
Keyboard into a standby state. Minute amounts of current
continue to flow within the Digital Keyboard in the standby
state. If you do not plan to use the Digital Keyboard for a
long time or if there is a lightning storm in your area, be
sure to unplug the AC adaptor from the power outlet.
If you do not perform any operation on the Digital Keyboard
for one of the trigger times noted below, Auto Power Off will
turn off power.
■ 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 bn (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 Keyboard.
• Use commercially available headphones. See page EN-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.
You can connect a dynamic microphone (only) to the Digital
Keyboard for output through the Digital Keyboard’s speakers.
• You can adjust the volume level of microphone input with
the ek (MIC VOLUME) knob. Microphone volume control is
independent of overall keyboard volume.
• Built-in effects (reverb, chorus) are also applied to input
from the microphone.
For details, see “Controlling the Keyboard Sounds” (page
EN-14).
• Before connecting a microphone, make sure that the
Digital Keyboard and microphone are turned off.
• Before connecting a microphone, set both the 2 and
ek (MIC VOLUME) knobs to low levels. Adjust volume
settings to appropriate levels after connecting the
microphone.

Sampling Sounds and Playing Them on the Digital
Keyboard
You can sample a sound from a microphone, a portable audio
player, or other device, and then play the sound on the
keyboard. For example, you could sample the bark of your
dog and then use the sound in a melody. You also can sample
and use passages from a CD. The sampling feature is a great
way to create new sounds that are highly creative.
• Before connecting, make sure that this Digital
Keyboard, as well as the microphone (WK-240 or
WK-245) or external device (CTK-4400) being
connected, are all turned off.
1. Connect a microphone or external device to the
Digital Keyboard.
<CTK-4400>
<WK-240/WK-245>
• You cannot sample sounds input from through the
AUDIO IN jack.
• Use a commercially available dynamic microphone.
• Connection of an external device requires commercially
available connecting cords, supplied by you. Connecting
cords should have a stereo mini plug on one end and a plug
that matches the configuration of the external device on the
other end.
2. Turn down the volume levels of the external
device and the Digital Keyboard.
3. Turn on the external device or microphone, and
then turn on the Digital Keyboard.
• When using a microphone, adjust the input volume
level with ek (MIC VOLUME).
• It will take a few seconds after you turn on the Digital
Keyboard before you will be able to use the microphone.
• Sampled sounds are recorded in monaural.

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 Keyboard 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.
