Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the power for all components. Before turning the power on or off for all components, set all volume levels to minimum. Also, be sure to set the volumes of all components at their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume controls while playing the instrument to set the desired listening level.
Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and do not use excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors. Do not operate the instrument for a long period of time at a high or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.

Saving data

Saving and backing up your data
For instruments with RAM that retains data by using dry cell batteries or a power adaptor As long as dry cell batteries are installed or the power adaptor is connected, the instrument retains the internal data when the power is turned off. If you remove the batteries and disconnect the adaptor, the data will be lost. Save important data to a oppy disk/external media such as the Yamaha MDF3 MIDI data ler. Keep the power adaptor connected while you replace the batteries to prevent loss of data.


When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners, solvents, cleaning uids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.

Handling caution

Do not insert a nger or hand in any gaps on the instrument. Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the panel or keyboard. If this happens, turn off the power immediately and unplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the instrument inspected by qualied Yamaha service personnel. Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might discolor the panel or keyboard.

Backing up the oppy disk

To protect against data loss through media damage, we recommend that you save your important data onto two oppy disks.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed. Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use. When using a power adaptor, even when the power switch is in the STANDBY position, electricity is still owing to the instrument at the minimum level. When you are not using the instrument for a long time, make sure you unplug the AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet. Make sure to discard used batteries according to local regulations. The illustrations and LCD screens as shown in this owners manual are for instructional purposes only, and may be different from the ones on your instrument. Unless otherwise indicated, the example panel control illustrations, Keyboard illustrations and LCD screenshots are taken from the DGX-500.

MIDI Interface
Viewing the Notation for MIDI Channel 1 The DGX-500/300 has a special function that lets you view the notes of the MIDI data (channel 1 only) on the display.
G When connecting to a computer with a USB interface, use the
Yamaha UX16 USB/MIDI Interface. Connect the UX16 and the computer with a standard USB cable, then make the proper MIDI connections between the DGX-500/300 and the UX16.


Local Control
This function lets you enable or disable keyboard control over the DGX-500/ 300s voices. This would come in handy, for example, when recording notes to MIDI sequencer. If you are using the sequencer to play back the voices of the DGX-500/300, you would want to set this to off in order to avoid getting double notes, both from the keyboard and from the sequencer. Normally, when playing the DGX-500/300 by itself, this should be set to on.
Select the MIDI operations.
Press the left Overall button, repeatedly if necessary, until MIDI is selected.


Indicates MIDI is selected
Select the Local Control parameter.
Press 1 on the numeric keypad to select operation #1, Local Control. If the LOCAL display appears instead of INITSEND in step #1 above, step #2 is unnecessary.


Press the [+]/[-] buttons.
Set Local Control to on or off, as desired.
No sound is output from the DGX-500/300 when Local ON/ OFF is set to OFF.
Using Initial Setup Send with a Sequencer
The most common use for the Initial Setup Send function is in recording a song on a sequencer that is intended for playback with the DGX-500/300. Essentially, this takes a snapshot of the DGX-500/300 settings and sends that data to the sequencer. By recording this snapshot at the start of the song (before any actual performance data), you can instantly restore the necessary settings on the DGX500/300. Provided there is a pause in the song, you could also do this in the middle of a song for example, completely changing the DGX-500/300 settings for the next section of the song.
I Sending Initial Setup Data
First, set up the sequencer for recording.
The actual procedure may differ depending on your particular equipment and software. Ideally, you should leave two or more measures of silence (no performance data) before the song begins. The Initial Setup data should then be recorded to this space in the song.
Select the Initial Setup Send operation.
Press 2 on the numeric keypad to select operation #2, Initial Setup Send. If the INITSEND display appears instead of LOCAL in step #2 above, step #3 is unnecessary.
Start the Initial Setup Send operation.
Start recording on the sequencer, then send the Initial Setup data.
Start recording on the sequencer in the normal way, then with as little delay as possible press the [+] button to actually start transmitting the data. An End message briey appears in the display when the operation is complete.
