IMPORTANT!
• Whenever connecting external equipment, first set the
VOLUME knob of the digital piano and the volume
controller of the external equipment to relatively low
volume settings. You can later adjust volume to the level
you want after connections are complete.
• Be sure also to refer to the documentation that comes with
the external equipment for its proper connection
procedures.
Connecting Headphones
Connect commercially available headphones to the
digital piano’s PHONES jacks. This cuts off the built-
in speakers, which means you can practice even late
at night without disturbing others. To protect your
hearing, make sure that you do not set the volume
level too high when using headphones.

the digital piano’s PEDAL DAMPER jack or PEDAL
SOFT/SOSTENUTO jack. If you want to use both
jacks at the same time, you need to purchase another
optionally available pedal.
See “Using the Piano’s Pedals” on page E-8 for
information about using a pedal.

Pedal functions
• Damper pedal
Pressing this pedal causes notes to reverberate and
to sustain longer.
• Soft pedal
Pressing this pedal dampens notes and slightly
reduces their volume. Only notes played after the
pedal is depressed are affected, and any notes
played before the pedal is pressed sound at their
normal volume.
• Sostenuto pedal
Like the damper pedal, this pedal causes notes to
reverberate and to sustain longer. The difference
between the two pedals is the timing when they
are pressed.
With the sostenuto pedal, you press the pedal after
depressing the notes you want to sustain. Only the
notes whose keyboard keys are depressed when the
sostenuto pedal is pressed are affected.
Selecting the Pedal Function
A pedal connected to the piano’s PEDAL jack can
operate as either a soft pedal or a sostenuto pedal.
When you turn on the keyboard, the pedal is initially
configured for soft pedal operation. You can perform
the following operation to select either soft or
sostenuto for the pedal operation.
1 While holding down the CONTROL
button, use the keyboard keys shown below
to select either soft or sostenuto.

button, press the BEAT [ ] or [ ] button
to specify how many beats there are per
measure.
• The first value of the beat can be set to a value
of 2 through 6. The bell (indicating the first beat
of a measure) does not sound while a value of 0
is specified. All beats are indicated by a click
sound. This setting lets you practice with a
steady beat, without worrying about how many
beats there are in each measure.

Using Auto Accompaniment
With auto accompaniment, the keyboard
automatically plays rhythm, bass, and chord parts in
accordance with chords you select using simplified
keyboard fingerings, or chords you play. Auto
accompaniment makes it feel like you have your own
private backup group with you all the time.
NOTE
• Rhythms 10 through 19 consist of chord
accompaniments only, without any drums or other
percussion instruments. These rhythms do not
sound unless CASIO CHORD, FINGERED, or
FULL RANGE CHORD is selected as the
accompaniment mode. With such rhythms, make
sure that CASIO CHORD, FINGERED, or FULL
RANGE CHORD is selected before you try playing
chords.

NOTE
• The accompaniment keyboard can be used for
playing chords only. No sound will be produced if
you try playing single melody notes on the
accompaniment keyboard.
Chord Types
CASIO CHORD accompaniment lets you play four
types of chords with minimal fingering.
4 Use a CASIO CHORD fingering to play the
first chord within the accompaniment
keyboard range.
• This will cause the intro pattern for the selected
rhythm to play, followed by the auto
accompaniment rhythm and chord pattern.
5 Use CASIO CHORD fingerings to play
other chords.
• See “How to Play Chords” on this page for
information about how to finger chords with
the various chord modes.
• You can insert a fill-in pattern while an auto
accompaniment is playing by pressing the
SYNCHRO/FILL-IN button. A fill-in helps to
change the mood of the auto accompaniment
pattern.
6 To stop auto accompaniment play, press the
INTRO/ENDING button.
• This will play an ending pattern for the selected
rhythm before stopping auto accompaniment
play.
NOTE
• You can start or stop auto accompaniment play
without an intro or ending pattern by pressing the
START/STOP button in steps 3 and 6.
How to Play Chords
The way you finger chords depends on the current
chord mode.
■ Normal
In this mode there is no auto accompaniment, so you
can play all of piano’s keys for standard-fingering
chords or melody notes.
■ CASIO CHORD
This method of chord play makes it possible for
anyone to easily play chords, regardless of previous
musical knowledge and experience. The following
describes the CASIO CHORD “Accompaniment
keyboard” and “Melody keyboard”, and tells you how
to play CASIO CHORDs.

NOTE
• See the “Fingered Chord Chart” on page A-2 for
details on playing chords with other roots.
*1: Inverted fingerings cannot be used. The lowest
note is the root.
*2: The same chord can be played without pressing
the 5th G.
NOTE
• Except for the chords specified in note*1 above,
inverted fingerings (i.e. playing E-G-C or G-C-E
instead of C-E-G) will produce the same chords as
the standard fingering.
• Except for the exception specified in note*2 above,
all of the keys that make up a chord must be
pressed. Failure to press even a single key will not
play the desired FINGERED chord.
■ FULL RANGE CHORD
This accompaniment method makes it possible to play
a total of 38 chord variations: the 15 available with
FINGERED plus 23 additional variations. The
keyboard interprets any input of three or more keys
that matches a FULL RANGE CHORD pattern to be a
chord.Any multi-key input that is not a FULLRANGE
CHORD pattern is interpreted as melody play. Because
of this, there is no need for a separate accompaniment
keyboard, and the entire keyboard from end-to-end
can be used for both melody and chords.
