Welcome to the CBX-K1
Congratulations and thank you for purchasing the Yamaha CBX-K1 MIDI Keyboard!
The CBX-K1 is a sophisticated, yet compact MIDI keyboard controller, for use with
computers and MIDI music systems. It allows you to play connected tone generators
and rhythm machines, and enter performance data to sequencers and computers. It
features a sophisticated touch-sensitive keyboard that can be adjusted to cover the full
128-note MIDI range. It also provides a wealth of MIDI controls that allow you to
send virtually any MIDI message directly from the keyboard. Moreover, the CBX-K1
has a versatile ASSIGNABLE Wheel that lets you control a wide variety of parameters
on your connected tone generator or sequencer in real time. Because of its exceptionally
portable size, convenient battery/AC adaptor power supply, compatibility with Gen-
eral MIDI (GM) and XG, and extraordinarily powerful and comprehensive MIDI
control functions, the CBX-K1 is an invaluable tool - a MIDI Swiss army knife, of sorts
- for all MIDI musicians and performers.
IMPORTANT
The CBX-K1 does not contain an internal tone generator. In order to
play sounds from the CBX-K1, you need an external tone generator, such as the
Yamaha MU series or TG series tone generators.
NOTE
The many MIDI functions and features of the CBX-K1 may not be supported
by your particular MIDI device. Be sure to refer to the owner's manual of your par-
ticular MIDI device when using it with the CBX-K1.
