Playing Back Songs (BGM)

The BGM (background music) functions on this instrument lets you play back Songs contained in internal memory or
USB memory connected to the [USB TO DEVICE] terminal. Songs for playback can be either MIDI or audio.
About MIDI Songs and Audio Songs
A MIDI Song is comprised of your keyboard performance information and is not a
recording of the actual sound itself. The performance information refers to which
keys are played, at what timing, and at what strength — just as in a musical score.
Based on the recorded performance information, the tone generator of the
instrument outputs the corresponding sound. A MIDI Song uses a small amount of
data capacity in comparison to an audio Song, and allows you to easily change the
event like a Voice.
An Audio Song is a recording of the performed sound itself. This data is recorded in
the same way as that used in recording cassette tapes, or with voice recorders, etc.
This data can be played with a portable music player, etc., allowing you to easily let
other people hear your performance.
