Recording Your Performance

Your digital piano's recording function enables you to record your performance of one song. The recorded performance is
called the "user song."
You can record up to two parts separately. For example, you can record the left-hand and right-hand parts separately.
Or, you can create a duet piece by recording each part one at a time and then playing them together.
