TALKING OWNER'S MANUALS PRODUCTS PROVIDE EXCELLENT INSTRUCTION

WHAT IS A TALKING OWNER'S MANUAL? A Talking Owner's ManualTM is a proven learning system of spoken product instructions on audio cassette for CASIO keyboards. It is a recorded explanation of how to operate and use the electronic functions and features found on a CASIO keyboard. As you listen to a T.O.M., it explains step-by-step the layout, control groups, color codings, connections, care and safety, usable accessories, and what the knobs, buttons, switches, sliders and displays can do on the keyboard. Since it is nearly impossible to describe sound combinations in a printed book, the demonstrations and explanations are supported by musical examples with sounds to make learning to operate your keyboard easier than printed manuals. Our audio instructions are created for those who dislike wading through printed manuals, can't read small printing, lack the time or patience to understand the operational steps described in print. A Talking Owner's Manual will save you hours of time and frustration as you learn to use your keyboard. You'll successfully operate the buttons, controls and hundreds of combinations to get the most sound, functions, music and fun from the model you own after a couple of listenings. T.O.M.s are educationally produced by a world-renown CASIO expert product specialist using examples of the sounds from the specific CASIO keyboard models. Instructions are paced to make learning to operate your keyboard step-by-step a rewarding experience. Listening to these spoken instructions is like having an expert teacher look over your shoulder and explain how to get the most out of the exciting features designed into your keyboard. Each cassette is produced for a specific model unless very similar models are combined on one tape. Our simplified T.O.M. Product instructions are thorough, easy to understand ... and very affordable! Over 500,000 Talking Owner's Manuals cassettes and videos have been purchased for use with CASIO products.

GLOSSARY OF KEYBOARD TERMS

AD-LIB Musician In the CTK-500, the feature adjusts the entire keyboard so that any key you play matches the auto- accompaniment or "Jukebox" song being played. The entire keyboard consists of only correct notes! Arpeggio Has a series of preset 4-note arpeggios. Auto-Accompaniment System in which you can generate complete backgrounds with drums, bass, and chord parts with the left hand, while you play melodies and solos with right hand. 3 different systems are available: Casio Chord, Fingered Chord, and Full Range Chord (only on certain models). Auto-Harmonize Feature which adds chord notes of the auto-accompaniment to each note you play in the melody with your right hand. Break Beat Manually activated (rather than automatic) patterns which can be stopped instantly or retriggered anytime to create new or interesting patterns. Casio Chord Simplified auto-accompaniment system for the novice player. Ability to play chords not required. Chord Memory Memorizes a background pattern for you to play over, consisting of a sequence of left-hand auto-chord (Casio Chord or Fingered Chord). Echo A voice enhancing effect which provides a close echo of your voice as you sing. This gives a more professional sound, and obscures some mistakes and tuning problems for poor singers. Effects, Reverb or Digital Signal Processor (DSP) Sound enhancement device that adds spacious, large room effect to sounds and rhythms. ELA "Expert Logic Accompaniment" in the CTK-500, a new intelligent auto-accompaniment system that makes real-time decisions about the chords being played, and how they relate to each other. It creates a more musically logical and satisfying background. Fingered Chord Auto-accompaniment system for the more advanced player; actual chord formations are played and complete bass/chord/drum background pattern is generated. Free Session Automatic moving chord progression 4, 8, or 12 bars, so you have both hands free for soloing. Full-Range Chord Auto-accompaniment system that allows either the triggering of chords or the playing of the melody across the entire keyboard, depending on whether you play a chord or single note melody. General MIDI International standard layout for keyboard tones and other parameters, which ensures that all MIDI keyboards, modules and software from all manufacturers will be functionally compatible, and offers somewhat greater ease of use. Some CASIO units do not follow the General MIDI scheme, but are fully functional in most MIDI applications nonetheless. Most of the larger Casios are of the General MIDI design. Graphic Equalizer Expanded tone control, often 3, 5 or 7 sections. Gives you more control over the sound than a conventional bass/treble control. Karaoke Cassette machine with microphone for sing-along. The correct pronunciation is "kahdah-oh-kay." In Japanese, it literally means "empty orchestra." Layer Allows you to stack two sounds together across the entire range of the keyboard, so both will sound on each key. LCD Liquid Crystal Display, a screen which gives an informative and attractive readout of keyboard functions. Display is often backlit, meaning there is a lighted screen. Magi-Comp Has chord progressions that change according to your phrasing of the melody. Magical Light Keyboard with illuminating keys, to guide your fingers to the correct note. Magical Presets In the "Music Designer Series" keyboards, a section that offers numerous interactive and fun ways to play along with automatic functions, such as: Free Session, Break Beat, Magi-Comp, Shadow Drum, Tone Cycle and Arpeggio. Melody Off Allows you to switch off the melody part of a preset song so you can play or sing the melody part over the preset accompaniment. Memory (song) Songs with multiple instrumental parts can be recorded directly into the keyboard. MIDI Musical Instrument Digital Interface -- language by which keyboards, other MIDI instruments, and computers can universally communicate. Minus-One The deletion of the melody lead so that user can manually play melody only, backed by full accompaniment Mixer A function that provides 16-channel control over volume, tone, panning, effects, tuning, and expression. Offers the versatility of a stand-alone mixer built right into the keyboard. Modesty Panel Piece of wood included with Digital Piano stands, to cover the back part of the unit. Multi-Timbral Defined as a MIDI instrument can reproduce more than one sound at a time when driven by a multi-channel MIDI sequence. Multi-Track Memory Songs with multiple instrumental parts can be recorded directly into the keyboard. One-Touch Preset Press this button after you select a rhythm style, and it will set the rhythm to the proper tempo and provide an appropriate melody sound automatically. PCM "Pulse Code Modulation" - Digital recordings of real instruments or percussion sound sources. Polyphonic The number of notes that can be played simultaneously. Real-Time Memory The instrument records exactly what is played, in real time. Registration Memory Allows you to configure your keyboard with a particular sound, rhythm, volume setting, effect and other associated parameters, and store all the settings for easy recall at the press of a single button. These are custom One-Touch Presets. Sampling The digital recording of a sound, which can later be triggered by a keyboard or other device. Sequencer Feature, computer program, or stand-alone device that allows you to record MIDI note data and edit it. Shadow Drum Triggers a percussion sound with each note, forming a pattern as you play. Split Allows you to divide the keyboard into two sections with a different sound in each. Point at which the keyboard divides is often assignable. Standard MIDI File Note data that can be played on any MIDI keyboard. It is accessed by the keyboard either from a computer-based sequencer or, in the case of keyboards that have a floppy disk drive built in, directly from a disk. These files are generally in General MIDI format, but can be modified in your sequencer to play in non-GM keyboards as
