MIDI Functions

You can make detailed adjustments to MIDI settings.

MIDI Transmit/Receive Channel Selection

In any MIDI control setup, the MIDI channels of the transmitting and receiving equipment must be matched for proper data
This parameter enables you to specify the channel on which the digital piano transmits or receives MIDI data.
Setting the transmit channel
While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons simultaneously, press
one of the C1–E2 keys.
Setting the receive channel
While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons simultaneously, press
one of the C4–F5 keys.
The lowest key
MIDI receive channel is ALL:
A "Multi-timbre" Receive mode is available. In this mode, this instrument receives
different parts from the connected MIDI device on any or all 16 MIDI channels and
plays multi-channel song data.
MIDI receive channel is 1+2:
A "1+2" Receive mode is available. It allows simultaneous reception on channels 1
and 2 only, enabling this instrument to play 1 and 2 channel song data received from a
music computer or sequencer.

Local Control ON/OFF

"Local Control" refers to the fact that, normally, the keyboard of this digital piano controls its internal tone generator,
allowing the internal voices to be played directly from the keyboard. This situation is "Local Control On," since the internal
tone generator is controlled locally by its own keyboard.
Local control can be turned OFF, however, so that the keyboard of this digital piano does not play the internal voices, but
the appropriate MIDI information is still transmitted via the MIDI [OUT] connector when notes are played on the keyboard.
At the same time, the internal tone generator responds to MIDI information received via the MIDI [IN] connector.
While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons
simultaneously, press the C6 key.
Pressing the C6 key repeatedly toggles between Local Control On and Off.
