Power Requirements

Although the instrument will run either from an optional AC adaptor or batteries, Yamaha recommends use of an AC adaptor whenever possible. An AC adaptor is more environmentally friendly than batteries and does not deplete resources.
Using an AC Power Adaptor
q Make sure that the power of the instrument is off
(the backlit display is off).
Use the specied adaptor (PA-130, or an equivalent recommended by Yamaha) only. The use of other adaptors may result in irreparable damage to both the adaptor and the instrument.
w Connect the AC power adaptor to the power supply
e Plug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.
Unplug the AC Power Adaptor when not using the instrument, or during electrical storms.
AC power adaptor AC outlet
For battery operation the instrument requires six 1.5V AA size, LR6 or equivalent batteries. (Alkaline batteries are recommended.) When battery power becomes too low for proper operation, the volume may be reduced, the sound may be distorted, and other problems may occur. When this happens, make sure to replace all batteries, following the precautions listed below. If necessary, also make sure to save all important User data (see page 62), since custom panel settings are lost when the batteries are removed.
Use alkaline batteries for this instrument. Other types of batteries (including rechargeable batteries) may have sudden drops of power when battery power becomes low, possibly resulting in loss of data in the ash memory. Make sure to install the batteries with the proper orientation, maintaining the correct polarity (as shown). Incorrect battery installation may result in heat, re and/or leaking of corrosive chemicals. When the batteries run down, replace them with a complete set of six new batteries. NEVER mix old and new batteries. Do not use different kinds of batteries (e.g. alkaline and manganese) at the same time. If the instrument is not to be in use for a long time, remove the batteries from it, in order to prevent possible uid leakage from the battery. Please use the power adaptor when transferring data to ash memory. Batteries (including rechargeable types) can be drained rapidly by this type of operation. If the batteries do become drained during a data transfer, both the data being transferred and the data currently in the transfer destination will be lost.

The instrument features a MIDI terminals that can be connected to other MIDI instruments and devices for expanded musical functionality.

What is MIDI?

MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a world-standard interface for communication between electronic musical instruments and music devices. When MIDI-equipped instruments are connected via a MIDI cable, it becomes possible to transfer performance and setting data between them for signicantly enhanced performance and production potential.
Transferring Performance Data To and From Another Instrument
By connecting the PSR-E323/YPT-320 to other MIDI devices or a computer, the performance data of the instrument can be used on those other MIDI devices or computer, and also the performance data from other MIDI devices and computer can be received and sounded with the PSRE323/YPT-320. A Yamaha UX16 or similar USB-MIDI interface (sold separately) will be necessary for MIDI connection between the PSR-E323/YPT-320 and a USB-equipped computer. Make sure to purchase a Yamaha UX16 or a quality USB-MIDI interface at a musical instrument store, computer store or electrical appliance store. If you use the UX16 interface, install the driver supplied with the interface on your computer.
Connect the PSR-E323/YPT-320 to external equipment only after turning off power for all devices. Then, turn on the power, rst to the PSR-E323/YPT-320, then to the connected external equipment. Reverse this order when you turn the power off.
MIDI cables (sold separately) must be used for connecting to MIDI devices. They can be bought at music stores, etc.
Preset Song data cannot be transmitted from the instrument by the Song Out function.
When the instrument is connected with another MIDI device, it transmits/receives performance data.

PSR-E323/ YPT-320


MIDI device

When the instrument is connected with a computer, it transmits/receives performance data.
A USB-MIDI interface (such as the Yamaha UX16)

MIDI settings

These settings should be made when transmitting/receiving performance data to a connected MIDI device or computer.

PC Mode

The PC settings instantly recongure all important MIDI settings (as shown below). The selections are PC1, PC2 and OFF.

Local Settings

Local Control determines whether or not notes played on the instrument are sounded by its internal tone generator system; the internal tone generator is active when local control is on, and inactive when local control is off.
On This is the normal setting in which notes played on the instruments keyboard are sounded by the internal tone generator system. Data received via the instruments MIDI terminal will also be played by the internal tone generator. Off With this setting the instrument itself produces no sound (keyboard performance, Harmony, or Style playback), but the performance data is transmitted via the MIDI terminal. Data received via the instruments MIDI terminal will also be played by the internal tone generator.

Transferring data between the PSRE323/YPT-320 and a computer
The PSR-E323/YPT-320 includes 102 preset Songs and 106 Styles, but you can load other Songs and Styles from your computer and use them in the same way as the preset Songs and Styles as long as the loaded Song is SMF format 0* or the loaded Style is SFF (Style File Format). Loaded Song data will be stored to Song numbers beginning with 108 and one of the loaded style/s can be registered as the 107th style. In order to perform the operations described in this section you will need to use a computer connected to the Internet to download the free Musicsoft Downloader application.
* The SMF (Standard MIDI File) format is one of the most common and widely compatible sequence formats used for storing sequence data. Most commercially available MIDI sequence data is provided in SMF Format 0.
C6: Fast forward B5: Start A5: Stop G5: Rewind F5: Top (move to the beginning of the song) E5: Metronome ON/OFF
Installing Musicsoft Downloader
You can download the Musicsoft Downloader application from the following website. Make sure that your computer has an Internet connection.
Remote control of MIDI devices will function independently of the PC2 mode.
PSR-E323/YPT-320 Panel Setting Transmission (Initial Send)
Sends the PSR-E323/YPT-320 panel settings to an external MIDI device. When recording a PSR-E323/YPT-320 performance to an external sequencer or similar equipment, you can use this function to send the current PSR-E323/YPT-320 panel settings so that when the sequence is played back the original panel settings are automatically restored. You can set Initial Send in the Function settings (page 56).

Erasing Transferred Song Data from the PSR-E323/YPT-320 Memory
To erase all Songs transferred from the computer, use ash clear function on page 41. To erase specic Songs transferred from the computer, use the Delete function on Musicsoft Downloader.
Using Transferred Songs for Lessons
In order to use Songs (only SMF format 0) transferred from a computer for lessons it is necessary to specify which channels are to be played back as the right-hand and left-hand parts. Refer to the Lesson Track (R) or Lesson Track (L) in the Function Setting List on page 57. The procedure for setting the guide track is as follows: Select a transferred Song you want to use for lessons. Press the [FUNCTION] button a number of times until the R-Part or L-Part appears in the display, and then use the number buttons [0] [9], [+], [-] to select the channel you want to play back as the specied right- or left-hand part. We recommend that you select channel 1 for the right-hand part and channel 2 for the left-hand part.
Preset Song data cannot be transmitted from the PSR-E323/ YPT-320.
The backup data, including the ve User Songs is transmitted/received as a single le. As a result, all backup data (including the ve Songs) will be overwritten every time you transmit or receive. Keep this in mind when transferring data. Do not rename the backup le on the computer. If you do so, it will not be recognized when transferred to the instrument.


Problem When the instrument is turned on or off, a popping sound is temporarily produced. When using a mobile phone, noise is produced. There is no sound even when the keyboard is played or when a Song or Style is being played back. Not all of the voices seem to sound, or the sound seems to be cut off. Playing keys in the right hand area of the keyboard does not produce any sound. The volume is too soft. The sound quality is poor. The rhythm stops unexpectedly or will not play. The recorded data of the Song, etc. does not play correctly. The LCD display suddenly goes dark, and all panel settings are reset. The Style or Song does not play back when the [START/STOP] button is pressed.

No rhythm accompaniment plays when the [START/STOP] button is pressed after selecting Style number 098106 (Pianist). The footswitch (for sustain) seems to produce the opposite effect. For example, pressing the footswitch cuts off the sound and releasing it sustains the sounds. The sound of the voice changes from note to note. The ACMP ON indicator does not appear when the [ACMP ON/OFF] button is pressed.
The harmony doesnt sound.

Voice List

Maximum Polyphony
The instrument has 32-note maximum polyphony. This means that it can play a maximum of up to 32 notes at once, regardless of what functions are used. Auto accompaniment uses a number of the available notes, so when auto accompaniment is used the total number of available notes for playing on the keyboard is correspondingly reduced. The same applies to the Split Voice and Song functions. If the maximum polyphony is exceeded, earlier played notes will be cut off and the most recent notes have priority (last note priority).

Panel Voice List

Bank Select

Voice No.

The Voice List includes MIDI program change numbers for each voice. Use these program change numbers when playing the instrument via MIDI from an external device. Program Numbers 001 to 128 directly relate to MIDI Program Change Numbers 000 to 127. That is, Program Numbers and Program Change Numbers differ by a value of 1. Remember to take this into consideration. Some voices may sound continuously or have a long decay after the notes have been released while the sustain pedal (footswitch) is held.

C = Chord notes C, R = Recommended notes


Any desired chord or chord progression can be used for the INTRO and ENDING sections.
Using the data recorded here, the auto accompaniment (Style playback) is appropriately converted depending on the chord changes you make during your performance. The chord which forms the basis for this note conversion is called the Source Chord, and is set by default to CM7 (as in the example illustration above). You can change the Source Chord (its root and type) from the PARAMETER display on page 122. Keep in mind that when you change the Source Chord from the default CM7 to another chord, the chord notes and recommended notes will also change. For details on chord notes and recommended notes, see page 123.
Changing the Source Chord If you want to record the pattern with a Source Chord other than CM7, set the PLAY ROOT and PLAY CHORD parameters on the PARAMETER page (page 122) before recording.

Step Recording (EDIT)

The explanation here applies when selecting the EDIT tab in step 4 of Realtime Recording (page 113).
In the EDIT display, you can record notes with absolutely precise timing. This Step Recording procedure is essentially the same as that for Song Recording (page 116), with the exception of the points listed below: In the Song Creator, the End Mark position can be changed freely; in the Style Creator, it cannot be changed. This is because the length of the Style is automatically xed, depending on the selected section. For example, if you create a Style based on a section of four measures length, the End Mark position is automatically set to the end of the fourth measure, and cannot be changed in the Step Recording display. Recording channels can be changed in the Song Creator 1-16 tab display; however, they cannot be changed in the Style Creator. Select the recording channel in the BASIC tab display. In the Style Creator, only the channel data and System Exclusive messages can be entered. You can switch between the two types of lists by pressing the [F] button. Chord and Lyrics data are not available.


DYNAMICS This changes the velocity/volume (or accent) of certain notes in the Style playback. The Dynamics settings are applied to each channel or all channels of the selected Style.
CHANNEL ACCENT TYPE STRENGTH EXPAND/COMP. Selects the desired channel (part) to which Dynamics is to be applied. Determines the type of accent appliedin other words, which notes in the part(s) are emphasized with the Dynamics settings. Determines how strongly the selected Accent Type (above) will be applied. The higher the value, the stronger the effect. Expands or compresses the range of velocity values. Values higher than 100% expand the dynamic range, while values lower than 100% compress it. Boosts or cuts all velocity values in the selected section/channel. Values above 100% boost the overall velocity, while values below 100% reduce it.


Editing Data for Each Channel (CHANNEL)
The explanation here applies when you select the CHANNEL tab in step 4 of Basic Operation for Editing Styles (page 118).
Press the [A]/[B] button to select the edit menu (see below).
Use the [1]/[2] (CHANNEL) buttons to select the channel to be edited. The selected channel is shown at the upper left of the display. Use the [4][8] buttons to edit the data. For details on editable parameters, see below. Press the [D] (EXECUTE) button to actually enter the edits for each display. After the operation is completed, you can execute the edition and this button changes to [UNDO], letting you restore the original data if youre not satised with the results of the edit. The Undo function only has one level; only the previous operation can be undone. Press the [I] (SAVE) button to call up the Style Selection display to save your data. Save the data in the Style Selection display (page 67).
Same as in the Song Creator (page 159), with the exception of the two additional available parameters below. C Eighth notes with swing C Sixteenth notes with swing Boosts or cuts the velocity of all notes in the specied channel, according to the percentage specied here. This function allows data to be copied from one measure or group of measures to another location within the specied channel. SOURCE species the rst (TOP) and last (LAST) measures in the region to be copied. DEST species the rst measure of the destination location, to which the data is to be copied. This function clears all data from the specied range of measures within the selected channel. This function lets you remove specic events from the selected channel.

Setting the Bass Note for Style Playback via MIDI Receive
The explanations here apply to the BASS display to be called up in step 4 of the Basic Operation on page 201. These settings let you determine the bass note for Style playback, based on the note messages received via MIDI. The note on/off messages received at the channel(s) set to ON are recognized as the bass note of the chord of Style playback. The bass note will be detected regardless of the [ACMP ON/OFF] or split point settings. When several channels are simultaneously set to ON, the bass note is detected from merged MIDI data received over the channels.
Operation Select the channel to be received and the part via which the selected channel will be received. You can also determine the types of data to be received.
The PSR-3000/1500 can receive MIDI messages over 32 channels (16 channels x 2 ports) by USB connection. With the exception of the two parts below, the conguration of the parts is the same as those already explained elsewhere in this manual.
Displaying the Voice Program Change Number
Determines whether or not the Voice bank and number are shown in the Voice selection display. This is useful when you want to check which bank select MSB/LSB values and program change number you need to specify when selecting the Voice from an external MIDI device. You can set this in the display called up by the following operations: [FUNCTION] [I] UTILITY TAB []/[] CONFIG 2. Switch the DISPLAY VOICE NUMBER menu ON and OFF.
Operation Select the channel and set the ON/OFF for that channel. Use the All OFF item to set all channels to OFF.
