Song Bank Quick Reference MAIN VOLUME POWER/MODE A selection of 100 Song Bank tunes come built-in for your listening pleasure or play along fun. A simple operation cuts out the melody part or accompaniment part of the tune, allowing you to play along on the keyboard.

Power Supply This keyboard can be powered by current from a standard house- hold wall outlet (using the specified AC adaptor) or by batteries. Al- ways make sure you turn the keyboard off whenever you are not using it. Using batteries Always make sure you turn off the keyboard before loading or re- placing batteries.
Auto Power Off When you are using battery power, keyboard power turns off auto- matically whenever you leave it on without performing any opera- tion for about 6 minutes. When this happens, use the POWER/MODE switch to turn power back on. NOTE Auto Power Off is disabled (it does not function) when you are using the AC adaptor to power the keyboard.
Basic Operations MAIN VOLUME POWER/MODE This section provides information on performing basic keyboard op- erations. To play the keyboard Set the POWER/MODE switch to NORMAL. Use the MAIN VOLUME buttons to lower the key- board volume. • It’s always a good idea to set the keyboard volume at a rela- tively low level before playing.
Polyphony The term polyphony refers to the maximum number of notes you can play at the same time. The keyboard has 12-note polyphony, which includes the notes you play as well as the rhythms and auto-accom- paniment patterns that are played by the keyboard. This means that when a rhythm or auto-accompaniment pattern is being played by the keyboard, the number of notes (polyphony) available for key- board play is reduced.
Auto Accompaniment POWER/MODE TEMPO START/STOP This keyboard automatically plays bass and chord parts in accordance with the chords you finger. The bass and chord parts are played us- ing sounds and tones that are automatically selected to select the rhythm you are using. All of this means that you get full, realistic accompaniments for the melody notes you play with your right hand, creating the mood of an one-person ensemble.
To use Auto Accompaniment Set the POWER/MODE switch to CASIO CHORD or FINGERED. Press the START/STOP button to start play of the cur- rently selected rhythm.
