Great value We have just taken delivery of this item (would definately recommend the proper Yamaha stand to put it on) and we are thrilled.

Yamaha PSRE213-K I bought this for my little brother, he is 14 and learning keyboard at school. Just the ticket! As a final attempt to discover if I had any kind of music talent before I hit 40, I decided to try the piano.

Do not place the AC adaptor cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators, and do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, place heavy objects on it, or place it in a position where anyone could walk on, trip over, or roll anything over it. When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold the plug itself and not the cord. Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector. Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating in the outlet. Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during electrical storms. Always make sure all batteries are inserted in conformity with the +/- polarity markings. Failure to do so might result in overheating, fire, or battery fluid leakage. Always replace all batteries at the same time. Do not use new batteries together with old ones. Also, do not mix battery types, such as alkaline batteries with manganese batteries, or batteries from different makers, or different types of batteries from the same maker, since this can cause overheating, fire, or battery fluid leakage. Do not dispose of batteries in fire. Do not attempt to recharge batteries that are not intended to be charged. When the batteries run out, or if the instrument is not to be used for a long time, remove the batteries from the instrument to prevent possible leakage of the battery fluid. Keep batteries away from children. If the batteries do leak, avoid contact with the leaked fluid. If the battery fluid should come in contact with your eyes, mouth, or skin, wash immediately with water and consult a doctor. Battery fluid is corrosive and may possibly cause loss of sight or chemical burns. 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 expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme cold or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day) to prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration or damage to the internal components. Do not use the instrument near other electrical products such as televisions, radios, or speakers, since this might cause interference which can affect proper operation of the other products. Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over. Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other cables. When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths. Also, do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might discolor the panel or keyboard. 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. Use only the stand specified for the instrument. When attaching the stand or rack, use the provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause damage to the internal components or result in the instrument falling over. 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.

This is for connection to a PA-3B AC power adaptor. (See page 8.)


This is for connection to an optional FC4 or FC5 Footswitch. The footswitch is generally used to control sustain, but it can conveniently be set to control one of a variety of functions instead. (See pages 9, 91.)


This is for connection to a set of stereo headphones or to an external amplifier/speaker system. (See page 9.)

MIDI IN, OUT terminals

These are for connection to other MIDI instruments and devices. (See page 94.)
This section contains information about setting up your PortaTone for playing. Make sure to read this section carefully before using the instrument.


Although the PSR-225 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.
Never interrupt the power supply (e.g. remove the batteries or unplug the AC adaptor) during any PSR-225 record operation! Doing so can result in a loss of data.

Using Batteries

I Inserting Batteries Turn the instrument upside-down and remove the battery compartment lid. Insert six 1.5-volt size D, R20P (LR20) or equivalent batteries as indicated in the battery case, making sure that the positive and negative terminals are properly aligned, and replace the lid. I When the Batteries Run Down When the batteries run low and the battery voltage drops below a certain level, the PortaTone may not sound or function properly. As soon as this happens, replace them with a complete set of six new batteries.
Never mix old and new batteries or different types of batteries (e.g., alkaline and manganese). To prevent possible damage from battery leakage, remove the batteries from the instrument if it is not to be used for a long time.

I Using the MIDI Terminals The PortaTone also features MIDI terminals, allowing you to interface the PortaTone with other MIDI instruments and devices. (For more information, see pages 20, 93.)

MIDI instrument

Stereo system
To prevent damage to the speakers, set the volume of the external devices at the minimum setting before connecting them. Failure to observe these cautions may result in electric shock or equipment damage.

Select the Voice mode.

Press the VOICE button.
Indicates Voice mode is selected
Select the desired voice number.
Use the numeric keypad. The basic categories of voices and their numbers are shown at the right side of the panel. A complete list of the available voices is given on page 109.
There are three ways to select voices: 1) directly entering the voice number with the numeric keypad, 2) using the +/- keys to step up and down through the voices, or 3) pressing the VOICE button to advance through the voice numbers.

Using the numeric keypad

Enter the digits of the voice number as indicated on the panel. For example, to select voice #42, press 4 on the numeric keypad, then 2.
All two-digit voice numbers can be selected without entering an initial 0. However, when selecting voice numbers 1 - 23, the PortaTone pauses briefly before actually calling up the voice. (This pause allows for entering threedigit voice numbers, such as 235. Entering the numbers 2 then 4 immediately calls up voice #24, since there are no voices #240 or higher.) If you want to immediately call up voices #1 - #23, enter one or two zeros before the number; for example, select voice #9 by pressing 0, 0, then 9. Pressing only 0 does not change the voice.


Using the +/- keys
Press the + key to select the next voice number, and press the - key to select the previous voice. Holding down either key continuously scrolls up or down through the numbers. The +/- keys have a wrap around feature. For example, pressing the + key from voice #238 returns to voice #1.

Using the VOICE button

Press the VOICE button to select the next voice number. (This functions exactly the same as the + button.)
Each voice is automatically called up with the most suitable octave range setting. Thus, playing middle C with one voice may sound higher or lower than another voice at the same key.

Play the selected voice.

When you select a voice, the PortaTone also automatically calls up various settings that are appropriate for the voice. [This is true when Voice Set (Function #72, page 39) is set to on the default setting.]
To change to another voice, repeat step 2 above. Since either the Style or Song mode is active in the background (as indicated by the mode name in the display, without the rectangle), you can also play styles or songs, respectively, in the Voice mode by simply pressing the START/STOP button. The last selected style or song will be played.

Voice Set and Touch Sensitivity are two important voice-related parameters, and are found in the Utility section of the Function parameters. When Voice Set (described in greater detail below) is set to on, you can automatically call up a variety of voice-related settings that best suit the selected voice. Touch Sensitivity (also described below) gives you dynamic, expressive control over the voices by letting you set how the volume of the PortaTone responds to your playing strength. Once the Touch Sensitivity parameter is set below, Touch response of the keyboard can be turned on or off by pressing the TOUCH button.
Indicates Touch Sensitivity is on.
Indicates Touch Sensitivity is off.
Call up the Function mode. Select the desired Function parameter number.
While the FUNCTION indication is flashing, use the numeric keypad to select the Voice Set parameter (#72), or Touch Sensitivity (#73). (For details on these parameters, see below.)


After the FUNCTION indication stops flashing, use the numeric keypad to change the value or setting.


Function Parameters Voice Set and Touch Sensitivity
No. F72 Parameter Name Voice Set Display Name VoiceSet Range/Settings oFF, on Description When this is set to on, selecting a voice also automatically calls up special voice-related parameters and values that best suit the voice. The parameters included in Voice Set are: Main Voice Volume, Octave, Pan Dual Voice Number, Volume, Octave, Pan, Reverb Send Level, Chorus Send Level, DSP Send Level Harmony Type, On/Off, Volume Use the panel HARMONY and DUAL buttons to turn the respective functions on or off. F73 Touch Sensitivity TouchSns 13 A setting of 1 results in limited touch response; this setting produces a relatively narrow dynamic range, no matter how lightly or strongly you play the keys. 2 lets you play over a normal dynamic range (soft to loud), while 3 is designed for playing very soft passages, giving you slightly more detailed control in the soft volume range. When Touch is turned off (page 38), a constant velocity value of 80 is produced (total velocity range = 0 - 127).


The PortaTone is equipped with a wide variety of effects that can be used to enhance the sound of the voices. Four general categories of effects are provided Reverb, Chorus, DSP, and Harmony and each category has many effect types to choose from.

The Harmony effect can also be turned on and off with a connected footswitch (page 91), or from Function parameter #37 (page 44).
Turn on the Harmony effect.
Press the HARMONY button.
Indicates that Harmony is on
For the first five Harmony Types (Duet, Trio, Block, Country, and Octave), chords must be played in the Accompaniment section of the keyboard. The speed of the Trill, Tremolo, and Echo effects depends on the Tempo setting (page 76).
Set the Harmony Type and desired Harmony Volume in the Function mode.
Do this in the normal way: 1) Press the FUNCTION button. 2) Select the desired Function parameter number (#37, #38, #39) with the numeric keypad. (For a list of the Harmony Types, see page 46.)
If the Harmony Volume is set to a value near or at 000, the Harmony effect may not be heard.




Function Parameters Effects
The Effect Function parameters provide all effect-related settings (with the exception of the Send parameters in the Main, Dual, and Split sections). These settings include:

To actually start the Intro section and accompaniment, press the START/STOP button. Once the Intro section is finished, the icon section of the display briefly shows the letter A or B to indicate that the selected Main section is currently playing.
Using Sync-Start with an Intro section
You can also use the Sync-Start function with the special Intro section of the selected style. To use Sync-Start with an Intro section: 1) Press the MAIN A or MAIN B button to select which section (A or B) is to follow the Intro.
3) Press the SYNC-START button to enable Sync-Start, and start the Intro section and accompaniment by playing any key on the keyboard. (When auto accompaniment is on, play a key or chord in the auto accompaniment section of the keyboard.)
Once the Intro section is finished, the icon section of the display briefly shows the letter A or B to indicate that the selected Main section is currently playing.

About Auto Accompaniment

Auto accompaniment can be used with any of the above methods. Simply press the ACMP ON/OFF button to turn on the auto accompaniment. (This can be done at any point in the operation.)
Indicates that auto accompaniment is on.
When using Sync-Start with the auto accompaniment, only keys in the auto accompaniment section can be used to start the accompaniment. (For more information on auto accompaniment, see page 52.)

About the Beat Display

The dark bars underneath the style name in the display flash in time with the current tempo during playback (or Sync-Start standby) of the accompaniment. The flashing bars provide a visual indication of both the tempo and time signature of the accompaniment. (For more information, see page 77.)

Stop the accompaniment.

The rhythm/accompaniment stops playing immediately.
You can do this in one of three ways:

Using an Ending section

Press the INTRO/ENDING button. The accompaniment stops after the Ending section is finished.
This function can also be controlled by using a connected footswitch. (See page 91.) To have the Ending section gradually slow down as it is playing, press the INTRO/ENDING button twice quickly.
Pressing the SYNC-START button
This immediately stops the accompaniment and automatically enables Sync-Start, letting you re-start the accompaniment by simply playing a chord or key in the auto accompaniment section of the keyboard.


When the Style mode is active, the panel buttons below the display function as accompaniment controls.
Pressing this button alternately enables and cancels the bass and chord accompaniment. (See below.)
Pressing this button alternately starts and stops accompaniment playback.
Pressing this button selects the Main A section, or adds a Fill-in A section. (See page 54.)

Major chord Minor chord Augmented chord Diminished chord
For simple major chords, the type is omitted.
One important point: Chords are made up of notes stacked on top of each other, and the stacked notes are indicated in the chord name of the chord type as a number the number being the distance of the note from the root. (See the keyboard diagram below.) For example, the minor 6th chord includes the 6th note of the scale, the major 7th chord has the 7th note of the scale, etc.
Dominant 7th (flatted 7th)
The Intervals of the Scale
To better understand the intervals and the numbers used to represent them in the chord name, study this diagram of the C major scale:

The Chord Guide functions of the PortaTone provide powerful, easy-to-use tools for learning chords and chord relationships. Chord Guide features three different types of operation: Dictionary, Smart, and EZ Chord.
Pressing the CHORD GUIDE button automatically turns on the auto accompaniment. When you wish to use the Style mode normally without the Chord Guide functions, make sure that OFF is selected. To do this: 1) Press the STYLE button to select the Style mode. 2) Press the CHORD GUIDE button so that a style name is shown in the display (instead of Dict., Smart, or EZ).


The Dictionary type is essentially a built-in chord book that shows you the individual notes of chords. It is ideal when you know the name of a certain chord and want to quickly learn how to play it.
With the Style mode active, select the Dictionary Chord Guide.
Press the CHORD GUIDE button so that Dict. appears in the display.
Specify the root of the chord.
Press the key on the keyboard that corresponds to the desired chord root (as printed on the panel).
Pressing this key selects the root G.
Specify the type of the chord (major, minor, seventh, etc.).

Start recording.

Even if youve recorded over (erased) the factory set EZ Chord banks, you can restore the original banks. (See page 105.)
When the RECORD indication stops flashing (and is lit continuously), you can start recording. Recording chords in EZ Chord is essentially a three-step operation: 1) Select the desired block with the +/- buttons.
Indicates the chord position. Currently selected block flashes.
Block Block Block Block Block Block Block Block
2) At the selected block, record the desired chord. You can do this in one of two ways: Play Multi Fingering chords in the auto accompaniment section. (See page 56.) Enter the chord root and name manually from the ROOT and CHORD TYPE section of the keyboard.
Indicates the recorded chord.
Bank number Block number (128 are available in a bank)
3) Press the + button in the numeric keypad. This actually records the chord to the selected block and automatically moves to the next block. This step is necessary; the chord is not actually recorded until you press the + button. (Pressing the - button will select the previous block without recording the chord.) To record a sequence of chords, repeat steps 2) and 3) above (play a chord, select the next step, play a different chord, select the next step, etc.).
Stop recording and exit from the record mode.
When finished recording the chords, press the RECORD button. This exits from the record mode and lets you playback your newly recorded chords. (See page 66.)

Recording a Space

To leave a block empty (creating a space between blocks), simply select the next block without entering a chord. To leave the rest of a row empty and start at the next row, use the + button to move to the first block in the next row and start recording from that position. (For more infomation, see the hint Using Spaces on page 70.)
Playing the Accompaniment During EZ Chord Recording
It may be helpful for you to hear the style and auto accompaniment as you are recording chords in the EZ Chord function. To do this: 1) Press the STYLE button. This briefly calls up the Style mode, while keeping EZ Chord recording active. 2) Select the desired style. Before the display reverts back to EZ Chord (a couple of seconds after pressing the STYLE button), use the numeric keypad to select a style. 3) Start accompaniment playback. Press the START/STOP button. 4) Record the chord. Play the desired chord in the auto accompaniment section of the keyboard. Remember that the chord is not actually recorded until you press the + button to move to the next block. If you manually enter the chord root and type (as described on page 68), the chord and bass accompaniment will not sound.

HINT Using Spaces

If your chord progressions are not long and the maximum memory space for chords isnt very important to you, you can use the spaces between recorded blocks to good advantage. (Keep in mind that spaces have no effect during playback; the EZ Chord function automatically skips the space or spaces and plays the next chord.)

Use the numeric keypad to select the desired song: User 1 (004), User 2 (005), or User 3 (006). User song numbers can be selected in the same way as with the voices (see page 28). You can use the numeric keypad to directly enter the song number, use the +/- keys to step up and down through the songs, or press the SONG button to advance through the song numbers.

Select a track number.

Press the SONG MEMORY button corresponding to the desired track. (This step is optional; the PortaTone automatically selects the first available track. When there is no song data, track 1 is automatically selected.)
Recording to the Chord Track A special Chord track is provided for recording accompaniment data. This is automatically recorded to the Chord track (track 6). To select the Chord track and turn on the accompaniment, press the ACMP ON/OFF button. RECORD
If accompaniment has already been turned on before entering the Record mode, the Chord track is automatically selected.
You can also simultaneously record one of the melody tracks (1 - 5) and the Chord track (6).
When the RECORD indication stops flashing and the beat bars and track number start flashing, you can start recording simply by playing the keyboard (or by pressing the START/STOP button).
Indicates Record standby. Flashing beat bars indicate Sync-Start is on.
If you want to rehearse your part before recording, press the SYNC-START button to turn Sync-Start off. After rehearsing, press SYNC-START again to return to the above condition. When recording the Chord track With Sync-Start on, play the first chord of the song in the auto accompaniment section of the keyboard. The accompaniment starts automatically and you can continue recording, playing other chords in time with the accompaniment. If you wish to cancel recording at this point, press the RECORD button again.

Stop recording.

After youve finished playing the part, press the START/STOP button.
Listen to your new recording.
To play back the song from the beginning, simply press the START/STOP button again. Playback stops automatically at the end of the song, or when the START/STOP button is pressed again.

The selected voice does not sound properly, or is too low in volume.
There is no sound when playing the keyboard.
Playing keys in the right hand section of the keyboard does not produce any sound.
The sound of the voices or rhythms seems unusual or strange. The accompaniment does not play back even when pressing the START/STOP button. There is no sound on either the PortaTone or the connected MIDI device.
The External Clock (page 98) has been set to on,. Change the External Clock setting to off. If Local Control (Function #84, page 97) is set to off, the PortaTone voices will not sound even when playing the keyboard. If Keyboard Out (Function #82, page 97) is set to off, the connected MIDI device will not sound when playing the PortaTone keyboard.
The accompaniment does not sound properly.
Make sure that the Accompaniment Volume (page 55) is set to an appropriate level. Make sure that the Accompaniment Split Point (#51, page 59) is set to an appropriate value.
The Reverb/Chorus/DSP/Harmony cannot be heard properly.
Make sure that the Send Level parameter for the effect (and the intended voice: Main, Dual, of Split) is set to an appropriate value. (See pages 31, 35, 37) Make sure that the corresponding effect is turned on. (See pages 40, 41, 42, 43) For the Harmony effect, make sure that Harmony Volume (#39, page 44) is set to an appropriate value.
When playing back one of the Pianist styles (#91 - #100), the rhythm cannot be heard.
This is normal. The Pianist styles have no drums or bass only piano accompaniment. The accompaniment of the style can only be heard when accompaniment is set to ON and keys are played in the auto accompaniment section of the keyboard. The PortaTone is polyphonic up to a maximum of 32 notes. If the Dual voice or Split voice mode is being used and a style or song is playing back at the same time, some notes/sounds may be omitted (or stolen) from the accompaniment or song. (See the note on page 108.)
Not all of the voices seem to sound, or the sound seems to be cut off.
Problem A strange flanging or doubling sound occurs when using the PortaTone with a sequencer. (This may also sound like a dual layered sound of two voices, even when Dual is turned off.)
Possible Cause and Solution If you are routing the MIDI OUT on the PortaTone to a sequencer and back to the MIDI IN, you may want to set Local Control (page 97) to off to avoid MIDI feedback. When using the accompaniment with a sequencer, set MIDI Echo (or the relevant control) to off. (Refer to the owners manual of your particular device and/or software for details.) The polarity of the footswitch is reversed. Make sure that the footswitch plug is properly connected to the FOOT SWITCH jack before turning on the power.

< indicates that the drum sound is the same as Standard Kit 1. Each percussion voice uses one note. The MIDI Note # and Note are actually one octave lower than listed. For example, in 101: Standard Kit 1, the Seq Click H (Note# 36/Note C1) corresponds to (Note# 24/Note C0). Key Off: Keys marked O stop sounding the instant they are released. Voices with the same Alternate Note Number (*1 4) cannot be played simultaneously. (They are designed to be played alternately with each other.)
