AI FINGERED
AI FULL KEYBOARD
NOTE
"AI" stands for "Artificial Intelligence."
Makes it simple to produce orchestrated accompaniment using major, seventh,
minor and minor-seventh chords by pressing a minimum number of keys on the
Chord section of the keyboard. This type is available only for Style playback.
The abbreviated chord fingerings described below are used:
C
For a major chord, press
the root key only.
Cm
For a minor chord, simul-
taneously press the root
key and a black key to its
left.
Automatically detects Single Finger or Fingered chord fingerings, so you can
use either type of fingering without having to switch fingering types.
Lets you finger your own chords on the chord section of the keyboard, while
the instrument supplies appropriately orchestrated rhythm, bass, and chord
accompaniment in the selected Style. The Fingered type recognizes the various
chord types which are listed on the separate Data List booklet and can be
looked up using the Chord Tutor function on
Accepts the same fingerings as Fingered, but the lowest note played in the
Chord section of the keyboard is used as the bass note, allowing you to play
"on bass" chords. (In the Fingered mode, the root of the chord is always used
as the bass note.)
Detects chords in the entire key range. Chords are detected in a way similar to
Fingered, even if you split the notes between your left and right hands—for
example, playing a bass note with your left hand and a chord with your right,
or by playing a chord with your left hand and a melody note with your right.
Basically the same as Fingered, with the exception that less than three notes
can be played to indicate the chords (based on the previously played chord,
etc.).
When this advanced fingering type is engaged, the instrument will automati-
cally create appropriate accompaniment while you play just about anything,
anywhere on the keyboard using both hands. You don't have to worry about
specifying the Style chords. Although the AI Full Keyboard type is designed to
work with many songs, some arrangements may not be suitable for use with
this feature. This type is similar to Full Keyboard, with the exception that less
than three notes can be played to indicate the chords (based on the previously
played chord, etc.). 9th, 11th and 13th chords cannot be played. This type is
available only for Style playback.
C
7

simultaneously press the
root key and a white key to
its left.
Cm

For a minor-seventh
chord, simultaneously
press the root key and both
a white and black key to its
left.
