Connecting a Footswitch/Foot Controller
Optional footswitches (Yamaha FC4 or FC5) and an optional Foot controller
(Yamaha FC7) can be connected to the [AUX PEDAL] jack. A footswitch can be
used for switching functions on and off, while a foot controller controls continuous
parameter such as volume.
• Example 1: Controlling the volume of the performance data played on
the keyboard by the foot controller.
Connect the FC7 foot controller to the [AUX PEDAL] terminal. With the initial
factory settings, no special setup is necessary.
• Example 2: Controlling Song Start/Stop by footswitch
Connect a footswitch (FC4 or FC5) to the [AUX PEDAL] jack.
To assign the function to the connected pedal, select "SONG PLAY/PAUSE" in the
operation display: [FUNCTION] → [D] CONTROLLER → TAB [E][F]
Refer to the Reference Manual on the website, Chapter 10.
