Connecting MIDI Instruments

Your digital piano features MIDI connectors. Using the MIDI functions enables you to access a variety of musical genres.

About MIDI

MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a global format standard for performance data transmission and reception
between electronic musical instruments.
Connecting musical instruments that support MIDI via MIDI cables enables you to transfer performance and setting data
between multiple musical instruments. Using MIDI, you can also achieve more advanced performances than using just a
single musical instrument.

MIDI's Capability

MIDI functions enable you to transfer performance data between MIDI devices, load song data from a connected computer
to your instrument, and transmit and save user song data to a computer.
