CONTROLLER MODULATION The MODULATION wheel can be used to modulate the parameters below as well as the pitch (vibrato). Here, you can set the degree to which the pedal modulates each of the following parameters.
FILTER AMPLITUDE LFO PMOD LFO FMOD LFO AMOD Determines the degree to which the pedal modulates the Filter Cutoff Frequency. For details about the lter, see page 97. Determines the degree to which the pedal modulates the amplitude (volume). Determines the degree to which the pedal modulates the pitch, or the vibrato effect. Determines the degree to which the pedal modulates the Filter modulation, or the wah effect. Determines the degree to which the pedal modulates the amplitude, or the tremolo effect.
SOUND FILTER Filter is a processor that changes the timbre or tone of a sound by either blocking or passing a specic frequency range. The parameters below determine the overall timbre of the sound by boosting or cutting a certain frequency range. In addition to making the sound either brighter or mellower, Filter can be used to produce electronic, synthesizer-like effects.
BRIGHTNESS Determines the cutoff frequency or effective frequency range of the lter (see diagram). Higher values result in a brighter sound.
Volume Cutoff frequency
These frequencies are passed by the lter.
Frequency (pitch) Cutoff range
Determines the emphasis given to the cutoff frequency (resonance), set in BRIGHTNESS above (see diagram). Higher values result in a more pronounced effect.
EG The EG (Envelope Generator) settings determine how the level of the sound changes in time. This lets you reproduce many sound characteristics of natural acoustic instrumentssuch as the quick attack and decay of percussion sounds, or the long release of a sustained piano tone.
ATTACK DECAY Determines how quickly the sound reaches its maximum level after the key is played. The lower the value, the quicker the attack. Determines how quickly the sound reaches its sustain level (a slightly lower level than maximum). The lower the value, the quicker the decay. Determines how quickly the sound decays to silence after the key is released. The lower the value, the quicker the decay.
Synchro Stop Window This determines how long you can hold a chord before the Synchro Stop function is automatically cancelled. When the [SYNC STOP] button is turned on and this is set to a value other than OFF, this automatically cancels the Synchro Stop function if you hold a chord for longer than the time set here. This conveniently resets Style playback control to normal, letting you release the keys and still have the Style play. Style Touch Turns touch response for the Style playback on/off. When this is set to ON, the Style volume changes in response to your playing strength in the chord section of the keyboard. Section Set Determines the default section that is automatically called up when selecting different Styles (when Style playback is stopped). When set to OFF and Style playback is stopped, the active section is maintained even if the different Style is selected. When any of the MAIN A-D sections is not included in the Style data, the nearest section is automatically selected. For example, when MAIN D is not contained in the selected Style, MAIN C will be called up.

NTT BASS ON/OFF The channels for which this is set to ON will be played back by the bass root note, when the on-bass chord is recognized by the instrument.
HIGH KEY This sets the highest key (upper octave limit) of the note transposition for the chord root change. Any notes calculated to be higher than the highest key are transposed down to the next lowest octave. This setting is available only when the NTR parameter (page 123) is set to Root Trans.
Example When the highest key is F.
Root changes Notes played
NOTE LIMIT This sets the note range (highest and lowest notes) for voices recorded to the style channels. By judicious setting of this range, you can ensure that the voices sound as realistic as possible in other words, that no notes outside the natural range are sounded (e.g., high bass sounds or low piccolo sounds). The actual notes that sound are automatically shifted to the set range.
Example When the lowest note is C3 and the highest is D4.
High Limit Low Limit
RTR (Retrigger Rule) These settings determine whether notes stop sounding or not and how they change pitch in response to chord changes.
STOP PITCH SHIFT PITCH SHIFT TO ROOT RETRIGGER RETRIGGER TO ROOT The notes stop sounding. The pitch of the note will bend without a new attack to match the type of the new chord. The pitch of the note will bend without a new attack to match the root of the new chord. The note is retriggered with a new attack at a new pitch corresponding to the next chord. The note is retriggered with a new attack at the root note of the next chord. However, the octave of the new note remains the same.

Editable Parameters in the VOCAL HARMONY EDIT Display
VOCODER TYPE Determines how the harmony notes are applied to the microphone sound when the Harmony mode (page 186) is set to VOCODER. Determines how the harmony notes are applied to the microphone sound when the Harmony mode (page 186) is set to CHORDAL. Determines whether the gender of the harmony sound is changed or not. Off The gender of the harmony sound is not changed. Auto The gender of the harmony sound is changed automatically. Determines whether and how the gender of the lead vocal sound (i.e., the direct microphone sound) will be changed. Please note that the number of harmony notes differs depending on the selected type. When set to Off, three harmony notes are produced. Other settings produce two harmony notes. Off No gender change occurs. Unison No gender change occurs. You can adjust the LEAD GENDER DEPTH below. Male The corresponding gender change is applied to the lead vocal. Female The corresponding gender change is applied to the lead vocal. Adjusts the degree of lead vocal gender change. This is available when the LEAD GENDER TYPE above is set to other than Off. The higher the value, the more feminine the harmony voice becomes. The lower the value, the more masculine the voice. When Correct is selected, the pitch of the lead vocal is shifted in precise semitone steps. This parameter is only effective when the LEAD GENDER TYPE above is set to other than Off. Gender change will occur when the harmony pitch reaches or exceeds the specied number of semitones above the lead vocal pitch. Gender change will occur when the harmony pitch reaches or exceeds the specied number of semitones below the lead vocal pitch. Adjusts the degree of gender change applied to harmony notes higher than the UPPER GENDER THRESHOLD. The higher the value, the more feminine the harmony voice becomes. The lower the value, the more masculine the voice. Adjusts the degree of gender change applied to harmony notes lower than the LOWER GENDER THRESHOLD. The higher the value, the more feminine the harmony voice becomes. The lower the value, the more masculine the voice. Sets the depth of vibrato applied to the harmony sound. Also affects the lead vocal sound when the LEAD GENDER TYPE above is set to other than Off.
COMPRESSOR This effect holds down the output when the input signal from the microphone exceeds a specied level. This is especially useful for smoothing out vocals that have widely varying dynamics. It effectively compresses the signal, making soft parts louder and loud parts softer. SW (Switch) This turns the Compressor on or off. TH. (Threshold) This adjusts the input level at which compression begins to be applied. RATIO This adjusts the compression ratio. OUT This adjusts the nal output level. VOCAL HARMONY CONTROL The following parameters determine how the harmony is controlled. VOCODER CONTROL The Vocal Harmony effect in Vocoder mode (page 186) is controlled by note datathe notes you play on the keyboard and/or the notes of the song data. This parameter lets you determine which notes are used to control the harmony.
SONG CHANNEL MUTE/PLAY When set to MUTE, the channel selected below (to control Harmony) is muted (turned off) during song playback. OFF/Channels 116 When set to OFF, song data control over harmony is turned off. When set to one of the values 116, note data (played from a song on the PSR-3000/1500 or an external MIDI sequencer) contained on the corresponding channel is used to control the harmony. This setting is linked to the HARMONY CH setting in the SONG SETTING display (page 139). OFF Keyboard control over harmony is turned off. UPPER Notes played to the right of the split point control the harmony. LOWER Notes played to the left of the split point control the harmony.
BAL. This lets you set the balance between the lead vocal (your own voice) and Vocal Harmony. Raising this value increases the volume of the Vocal Harmony and decreases that of the lead vocal. When this is set to L<H63 (L: Lead Vocal, H: Vocal Harmony), only the Vocal Harmony is output; when it is set to L63>H, only the lead vocal is output.
MODE All of the Vocal Harmony types fall into one of three modes, which produce harmony in different ways. The harmony effect is dependent on the selected Vocal Harmony mode, and this parameter determines how the harmony is applied to your voice. The three modes are described below.
AUTO When the [ACMP ON/OFF] or [LEFT] is set to ON and if chord data exists in the song, the mode is automatically set to CHORDAL. In all other cases, the mode is set to VOCODER. The harmony notes are determined by the notes you play on the keyboard and/or song data. You can specify whether the Vocoder effect is controlled by your keyboard performance or by the Song data (page 185). The harmony notes are determined by the following three types of chord: chords played in the chord section of the keyboard (with the [ACMP] turned on), chords played in the LEFT Voice section of the keyboard (with the [ACMP] turned off and the [LEFT] turned on), and chords contained in song data for controlling the harmony. (Not available if the song does not contain any chord data.)

Disconnect the USB storage device from the computer and connect it to the instrument Reading les on the USB storage device from the instrument
As shown in the illustration above, in an electronic instrument the sampled note (previously recorded note) stored in the tone generator section (electronic circuit) is played based on information received from the keyboard. Now, lets examine what happens when we playback a recording. When you play back a music CD (for example, a solo piano recording), youre hearing the actual sound (vibration in air) of the acoustic instrument. This is called audio data, to distinguish it from MIDI data.
Recording and playing back the performance of an acoustic instrument (audio data) Recording Playback
USB storage device [USB TO DEVICE] termina Instrument
In the above example, the actual acoustic sounds of the pianists performance are captured in the recording as audio data, and this is recorded to CD. When you play back that CD on your audio system, you can hear the actual piano performance. The piano itself is not necessary, since the recording contains the actual sounds of the piano, and your speakers reproduce them.
Recording and play back the performance of a digital instrument (MIDI data) Recording Playback
Tone Generator Sequencer
Controller (keyboard, etc.)
SmartMedia card SmartMedia card
Finally, well take a look at the actual data that gets recorded and that serves as the basis for playing the sounds. For example, lets say you play a C quarter note using the grand piano sound on the PSR-3000/ 1500 keyboard. Unlike an acoustic instrument that puts out a resonated note, the electronic instrument puts out information from the keyboard such as with what voice, with which key, about how strong, when was it pressed and when was it released. Then each piece of information is changed into a number value and sent to the tone generator. Using these numbers as a basis for sound generation, the tone generator plays the stored sampled note. Example Keyboard Data
In the case of digital instruments, the audio signals are sent through output jacks (such as [AUX OUT]) on the instrument.
Voice number (with what voice) Note number (with which key) Note on (when was it pressed) and note off (when was it released) Velocity (strength at which it was played)
01 (grand piano) 60 (C3) Timing expressed numerically (quarter note) 120 (strong)
The controller and tone generator in the illustration above are equivalent to the piano in our acoustic example. Here, the players performance on the keyboard is captured as MIDI song data (see illustration below). In order to record the audio performance on an acoustic piano, special recording equipment is needed. However, since the PSR-3000/1500 features a built-in sequencer that lets you record performance data, this recording equipment is unnecessary. Instead, your digital instrument the PSR-3000/1500 allows you to both record and play back the data.
There is a slight difference in sound quality among different notes played on the keyboard. Some Voices have a looping sound. Some noise or vibrato is noticeable at higher pitches, depending upon the voice. This is normal and is a result of the PSR-3000/1500s sampling system. Some Voices will jump an octave in pitch when played in the upper or lower registers. This is normal. Some voices have a pitch limit which, when reached, causes this type of pitch shift. The Main display does not appear even when turning the power on. This may occur if a USB storage device has been installed to the instrument. Installation of some USB storage device may result a long interval between turning the power on and appearance of the Main display. To avoid this, turn the power on after disconnecting the device.
Some characters of the le/folder name are garbled. The language settings have been changed. Set the appropriate language for the le/folder name (page 19). An existing le is not shown. The le extension (.MID, etc.) may have been changed or deleted. Manually rename the le, adding the appropriate extension, on a computer. The data contained in the external media (SmartMedia card, etc.) is not shown on the instrument itself. Data les with names of more than 50 characters cannot be handled by the instrument. Rename the le, reducing the number of characters to 50 or less. The le/folder copied or cut from one media (such as a SmartMedia card, etc.) cannot be directly copied or pasted to another media. This is normal. Since directly copying data is not possible, copy or paste the data once to the User display, then copy or paste it again to the Card/USB display after changing the media.

The Voice selected from the Voice Selection display does not sound. Check whether or not the selected part is turned on (page 77).

To select the Voice for the left-hand key range, press the PART SELECT [LEFT] button. The sound seems strange or different than expected when changing a rhythm Voice (drum kit, etc.) of the Style or Song from the Mixer. When changing the rhythm/percussion Voices (drum kits, etc.) of the Style and Song from the VOICE parameter, the detailed settings related to the drum voice are reset, and in some cases you may be unable to restore the original sound. In the case of Song playback, you can restore the original sound by returning to the beginning of the Song and playing back from that point. In the case of Style play, you can restore the original sound by selecting the same Style again. Tremolo/Trill cannot be applied to the Organ Flute Voice. This is normal; Tremolo and Trill settings in the Harmony/Echo display are not effective for Organ Flute Voices. The Harmony function does not operate. Harmony cannot be used with the Full Keyboard or AI Full Keyboard ngering modes. Select an appropriate ngering mode (page 102). When a Voice is changed, the previously selected effect is changed. Each Voice has its own suitable preset settings, which are automatically recalled when the corresponding Voice Set parameters are turned on (page 101). The Voice produces excessive noise. Certain Voices may produce noise, depending on the Harmonic Content and/or Brightness settings in the FILTER page of the Mixing Console display (page 88). The sound is distorted or noisy. The volume may be turned up too high. Make sure all relevant volume settings are appropriate. This may be caused by certain effects. Try canceling all unnecessary effects, especially distortion-type effects (page 90). Some lter resonance settings in the Sound Creator display (page 97) can result in distorted sound. Adjust these settings if necessary. Noise may occur depending on the settings made in the Filter display of the Mixing Console. Adjust the Harmonic Content or Brightness controls in the Filter display (page 88).

Ultra Realistic Voices and Styles
Mega Voice Technology
Yamahas groundbreaking Mega Voice technology captures more than the tone of the original instrument, it re-creates the behavior, so you can hear all the elements as when listening to the actual instrument. For example, the string and pick noise is part of the natural sound of a guitar, and it would sound unnatural without it. Mega Voice include all the extra characteristics of the instrument, providing a whole new level of realism. The bundled CD-ROM includes Software, which allows you to convert MIDI data on your PC so that it takes full advantage of the PSR-3000s Mega Voice capabilities.
What are Mega Voices?
To provide a more authentic and natural sound, keyboards commonly use velocity switching to dynamically change the characteristic of a voice (tone, volume level, etc.) according to how strongly or softly you play the keys. Mega voice take this concept even further by giving each velocity range (the measure of your playing strength) a completely different sound. For example, a Mega guitar voice includes the sounds of various performance techniques, such as picking, strumming and muting the strings, as well as fret noise and harmonics. In conventional instruments, different voices having those sounds would be called up via MIDI and played in combination to achieve the desired effect. With Mega voice, however, a convincing guitar part can be played with just a single voice, using specific velocity values to play the desired sounds.
Velocity 0 harmonics slide hammering muted dead note open hard open mid open soft Strumming Fret Noise The sounds of various guitar performance techniques are independently assigned to different velocity and note ranges.
