Adjusting the Master Equalizer [MASTER EQ EDIT]
The P-250 enables you to set the Master Equalizer settings. You can also set the EQ gain by moving the MASTER EQUALIZER sliders (page 38) on the panel. Regardless of the method you use, the latest gain setting is effective.
[MASTER EQ EDIT]
Refer to page 61 for general information on setting the parameters. Refer to pages 35 of the separate Data List for information on the default parameter settings. All parameters accessed via the [MASTER EQ EDIT] button are performance parameters (page 30).

Securely insert the female plug into the socket on the P-250, and the male plug into a proper AC outlet. (page 16) This is normal. Turn off the mobile phone, or use it further away from the P-250. Using a mobile phone in close proximity to the P-250 may produce interference. Raise the [MASTER VOLUME] level. Disconnect the headphone plug.
A click or pop is heard when the power is turned on or off. Noise is heard from the P-250 speakers. The overall volume is too low, or there is no sound at all.
Set Speaker to Normal or ON. (page 79) Turn the Local Control function on. Set the InternalTG to on. Assign any function other than Expression to the pedal. Raise the Master EQ gain level. Raise the Part EQ gain level. Move the [SONG BALANCE] slider toward KEYBOARD to increase the keyboard volume. Set Speaker to Normal. (page 79)
The keyboard volume is lower than the song playback volume. The speakers do not turn off when a pair of headphones is connected. The buttons do not respond.
The volume level for the keyboard performance is set too low. The speaker setting is on.
While you are using a function, some buttons not used for the function are disabled. With the voices in the ORGAN1, ORGAN2, STRINGS, CHOIR, or SYNTH.PAD group, or part of the XG group, the sound continues sustaining while you hold down the sostenuto pedal. The setting range for the transposition and octave setting is C-2 - G8. (With the normal setting, the units 88 keys cover the range of A-1 - C7.) If the lowest key is set to a note lower than C-2, it will produce a sound one octave higher. If the highest key is set to a note higher than G8, it will produce a sound one octave lower. Depending on the timing of the tempo changes, the changed tempo may not be recorded. In this case, the recording will be played back at the original tempo. Make tempo changes when the recording track is selected and the red track indicator is ashing. The same trick applies to editing the tempo after recording.
If a song is recording or playing, stop recording or playback. Otherwise, press the [EXIT] button to return to the main screen. Then, perform the desired operation. This is normal.

Limitations on the P-250 when using the File Utility
The TOOLS for P-250 CD-ROM contains a File Utility program. By using this software, you can transfer files between the internal memory of the P-250 and your computer, and edit them. There are some operating states of the P-250 in which it is not possible to use the File Utility or in which some File Utility functions are not available. You cannot use File Utility to perform file operations in the following states. Demo song mode Song recording/playback mode During le operations During the various [SONG FILE] operations During the various [PERFORM.FILE] operations During MIDI bulk data transmission and reception While MIDI transmission is stopped The following operations cannot be performed while File Utility is running. File operations Song loading Song playback Track button on/off The following operations cannot be performed on the P-250. Changing the lename extension of a le Japanese display in the LCD screen Creating a folder Copying a folder from the computer to the storage memory Transmitting a protected song to the computer Transmitting path information to a device
n When transferring a file between the P-250 and your computer, you must set the type of characters on your P-250 ([CharacterCode]) to match the language of the operating system for the computer in which you installed File Utility. If the character code of the P-250 does not match the language of the computer that is running File Utility, the file may not be handled correctly. n On the P-250, the File Utility ID is fixed at 1. If you specify an ID other than 1, you will be unable to transmit or receive data. For details on the File Utility ID, refer to the File Utility PDF manual.

4 TOOLS for P-250 Installation Guide
You can start the File Utility software as either a stand-alone software or a plug-in application in the Open Plug-in Technology compatible application. Refer to the owner's manual of the client application (sequencer, etc.) for details on using the File Utility as a plug-in software.
About Open Plug-in Technology
Open Plug-in Technology (OPT) is a newly developed software format that allows control over MIDI devices from a music software sequencer. For example, this allows you to start up and operate various parts of your music system, such as plug-in board editors, and mixing control editors - directly from an OPT-compatible sequencer, without having to use each separately. This also makes it unnecessary to set MIDI drivers for each application, streamlining your music production system and making all operations more convenient and seamless. About the OPT Levels The client application and its compatibility with OPT can be divided into three levels, as shown below. Level 1 OPT Panels provides basic support for opening and displaying OPT control panels that can transmit data via the clients external MIDI ports. Typically this will allow basic hardware editor control panels to operate properly. Level 2 OPT Processors provides support for real-time MIDI processors and panel automation. Typically this will allow both real-time and offline MIDI effects (e.g. Arpeggiators, transposers etc.) to operate properly and supply automation to OPT panels. Level 3 OPT Views provides support for edit views and MIDI processors/panels that require direct access to client sequencer storage structures. Typically this will allow sophisticated MIDI edit views to be supported (e.g. List editors, Auto Accompaniment, Data Checkers etc.).
OPT Level Implementation for the File Utility
This chart shows the OPT-compatibility of the File Utility.
File Utility operation OPT levels of the client application Operation support VIEWS (Level3) Yes Operation limits None
n Certain operations may not work as expected if there is no corresponding function in the client application (sequencer, etc.). The highest level of implementation for the client application is indicated in the OPT logo (which appears along with the version information in the application).

Setting up OMS (For USB connection)
The OMS studio setup file for the P-250 is contained in the included CD-ROM. This studio setup file is used for setting up OMS.
n Before performing the following procedure, the OMS and USB MIDI Driver should be installed.
Depending on the Macintosh and operating system version that you are using, the included studio setup file for the P-250 still may not work even after you have performed the above steps. (MIDI transmission and reception will not be possible even if the setup is valid.) In this case, use the following procedure to re-create the setup file. 1 Connect the P-250 and Macintosh via USB or serial cable, and turn on the power of the P-250. 2 Start up OMS Setup, and from the File menu, choose New setup. 3 The OMS driver search dialog box will appear. Check [Modem] or [Printer] if you are using a serial connection. Uncheck both of these if you are using a USB connection. 4 Click the [Find] button to search for the device. When the search has succeeded, the OMS Driver Setting dialog box will display the following. For a USB connection: USB-MIDI 1 For a serial connection: MIDI Time Piece-Modem (Printe_) If the device was found correctly, click the [OK] button to proceed. If the device was not found, re-check that the cable connections are correct, and repeat the procedure from step 1. 5 Make sure that the port is shown below the device that was found. (In the case of the P-250, this will be a name such as USB-MIDI, Modem, or Printer.) Check the check box for the port, and then click the [OK] button. 6 A dialog box will appear, allowing you to name the le that will be saved. Input the desired lename, and click [Save]. This completes OMS setup. 7 From the Studio menu, choose Test, and click the port icon. If a channel sounds on the P-250, the system is operating correctly. For details on using OMS, refer to OMS_2.3_Mac.pdf, included with OMS.
1 Use a USB cable to connect the USB terminal of the computer (or the USB hub) to the USB terminal of the P-250 and turn the P-250s power on. 2 Start the computer. 3 Insert the included CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive of your Macintosh computer.
