After making sure that the YDP-88's AC plug is properly inserted into a con-
venient AC wall outlet, press the [POWER] switch located to the left of the
keyboard to turn the power ON. (In some areas a plug adaptor may be provided
to match the pin configuration of the AC wall outlets in your area.)
When the power is turned ON, the [PIANO] voice selector LED will light
(the PIANO voice is automatically selected whenever the power is turned ON).
Initially set the [MASTER VOLUME] control about half way between the
"MIN" and "MAX" settings. Then, when you start playing, re-adjust the [MAS-
MAX

Select the desired voice by pressing one of the voice selectors.

amount of variation available depends on the selected voice.
