Power Outlet
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.
IMPORTANT!
• Never connect the AC adaptor (JEITA Standard,
with unified polarity plug) that comes with this digital
piano to any other device besides this 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.
1. Press the P (POWER) button to turn on
digital piano power.
• This causes the P (POWER) button to light.
• When you turn on the digital piano, it performs a
power up operation in order to initialize its system.
During system initialization the tone button lamps
cycle on and off in the sequence for about five
seconds to let you know that system initialization is
in progress.
2. To turn off the digital piano, hold down the P
(POWER) button until its light goes out.
NOTE
• Pressing the P (POWER) button to turn off power
actually puts the digital piano into a standby state.
Minute amounts of current continue to flow within
the digital piano in the standby state. If you do not
plan to use the digital piano 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.

Connections
IMPORTANT!
• Whenever connecting something to the digital piano,
first use the VOLUME controller to set the volume to
a low level. After connecting, you can adjust the
volume to the level you want.
Connecting headphones to either of the PHONES jack
cuts off output to the speakers, which means you can
practice even late at night without bothering others. To
protect your hearing, make sure that you do not set the
volume level too high when using headphones.
NOTE
• Be sure to push the headphones plug into the
PHONES jacks as far as it will go. If you don’t, you
may hear sound from only one side of the
headphones.
• If the plug of the headphones you are using does not
match the PHONES jacks, use the applicable
commercially available adaptor plug.
• If you are using headphones that require an adaptor
plug, make sure you do not leave the adaptor
plugged in when you unplug the headphones. If you
do, nothing will sound from the speakers when you
play.
You can connect audio equipment or a music amplifier
to the digital piano and then play through external
speakers for more powerful volume and better sound
quality.
Connecting Audio Equipment (Figure 1)
Use commercially available connecting cords
(Standard Plug × 1, Pin Plugs × 2) to connect as shown
in Figure 1. Make sure that the end of the cord that
you connect to the digital piano is a stereo standard
plug. A monaural standard plug will result in output of
only one of the two stereo channels. Normally, you
should set the input selector of the audio equipment to
the terminal where the digital piano is connected (AUX
IN, etc.) Adjust volume using the digital piano’s
VOLUME controller.
Connecting a Music Amplifier (Figure 2)
Connect the connecting cord* to one of the types of
amplifiers shown in Figure 2.
Adjust volume using the digital piano’s VOLUME
controller.

Connecting the supplied pedal (SP-3) to the DAMPER
PEDAL jack makes it possible to use the pedal as a
damper pedal.
Pressing the damper pedal while playing will cause the
notes you play to reverberate for a long time.
• When a GRAND PIANO tone (CONCERT,
MODERN, CLASSIC, MELLOW, BRIGHT) is
selected as the tone, pressing this pedal will cause
notes to reverberate just like the damper pedal on an
acoustic grand piano.
Pedal Connector
You can connect the optionally available 3-Pedal Unit
(SP-33) to the pedal connector on the bottom of the
digital piano. You can then use the pedals for
expression that is similar to that available on an
acoustic piano.
SP-33 Pedal Functions
z Damper Pedal
In addition to the damper pedal functions described in
the column to the left, the SP-33 pedal also supports
half-pedal operation, so pressing the pedal part way
applies only a partial damper effect.
z Soft Pedal
Pressing this pedal suppresses notes played on the
keyboard after the pedal was pressed, and makes them
sound softer.
z Sostenuto Pedal
Only the notes that are played while this pedal are
depressed are sustained until the pedal is released.
NOTE
• The optional CS-67P stand is required in order to use
the SP-33 Pedal Unit.
Use only accessories that are specified for use with this
digital piano.
Use of unauthorized accessories creates the risk of fire,
electric shock, and personal injury.
NOTE
• You can get information about accessories that are
sold separately for this product from the CASIO
catalog available from your retailer, and from the

NOTE
• Of the digital piano’s 18 built-in tones, the first five
are grand piano tone. Each tone has its own
distinctive merits, so you should select the tone that
suits the song you are playing along with or your
own personal preferences. The CONCERT and
MODERN tones are assigned to buttons for quick
and easy selection.
* Feature that applies computer morphing
technology to enable seamless changes between
sounds sampled at various dynamics from a full
concert grand piano.
Bass Tones (BASS 1, BASS 2)
Selecting either of the two BASS (LOWER) tones (1 or
2) in step 1 of the above procedure will assign the
selected bass tone to the low range (left side) of the
keyboard. The high range (right side) will be assigned
the tone that was selected when you pressed the
BASS 1 or BASS 2 key.
• BASS 1 and BASS 2 let you effectively split the
keyboard between two different tones.
NOTE
• To return the keyboard to a single tone, select any
tone other than BASS 1 or BASS 2.
• You cannot select BASS 1 or BASS 2 when recording
to Track 2.
Tone Name Characteristics
CONCERT This is a full concert grand piano tone
that uses Linear Morphing* for
dynamic and natural tone changes.
This tone is designed to reproduce
damper, resonance, and other piano
nuances, which makes it ideal for
virtually any type of piano
performance.
MODERN This tone provides a bright grand piano
sound. The volume and timbre of this
tone is quick to respond to different
keyboard pressures, and it has
relatively deep reverb. This tone is a
good choice for dynamic and lively
performances.
CLASSIC This is a natural piano tone that closely
resembles the sound of an acoustic
piano. Though reverb and other flashy
effects are subdued for this tone,
resonance is more pronounced, which
enables expression of delicate nuances.
This tone is a good choice for lesson
and practice sessions.

Recording and Play Back
You can store the notes you play in digital piano
memory for later playback.
A track is a container of recorded data, and a song
consists of two tracks: Track 1 and Track 2. You can
record each track separately and then combine them so
they play back together as a single song.
Memory Capacity
• You can record approximately 5,000 notes in digital
piano memory.
• The RECORDER button lamp will flash at high
speed when memory runs low.
• Recording stops automatically if the number of
notes in memory exceeds the maximum.
Recorded Data
• Keyboard play
• Tone used
• Pedal operations
• Reverb and chorus settings (Track 1 only)
• Tempo setting (Track 1 only)
• Layer setting (Track 1 only)
• Split setting (Track 1 only)
• Temperament and base note settings (Track 1 only)
• Octave shift setting (Track 1 only)
Recording Data Storage
• Starting a new recording deletes any data that was
previously recorded in memory.
• If power to the Digital Piano is cut off while
recording is in progress, everything you recorded up
to that point will be deleted. Take care so power is
not turned off accidentally during recording
operations.
IMPORTANT!
• CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD. takes no
responsibility for any damages, lost profits, or claims
by third parties arising from the deletion of recorded
data due to malfunction, repair, or for any other

This is an unavoidable result of the digital sampling process,* and does not indicate malfunction.
* Multiple digital samples are taken for the low range, middle range, and high range of the original
musical instrument. Because of this, there may be very slight differences in tonal quality and
volume between sample ranges.
When I press a button, the
note that is sounding cuts out
momentarily or there is a
slight change in how effects
are applied.
This happens when the sounds of multiple parts are sounding at the same time while using layer,
using the Duet Mode, playing back a built-in tune, recording, etc. Pressing a button when one of
these conditions exists will cause the effect setting that is built into the tone to change automatically,
which causes notes to cut out momentarily or causes a slight change in how effects are being
applied.
