Using the Piano’s Pedals The digital piano is equipped with two pedal jacks, one for a damper pedal and one for a soft/sostenuto pedal. 412A-E-010A SP-3 Low range Left limit of the high range High range ▲ C1 ▲ C2 ▲ C3 ▲ C4 ▲ C5 ▲ C6 ▲ C7 ▲ C8 Soft Sostenuto 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.

E-11 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.

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.

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. FULL RANGE CHORD Accompaniment Keyboard and Melody Keyboard Accompaniment keyboard/Melody keyboard Chords Recognized by This Piano The following table identifies patterns that are recognized as chords by FULL RANGE CHORD.
