There is also a function that grades your performances, so you can efficiently step up your skills — and have fun doing it!
Play with a Backing Band
The keyboard also includes a Smart Chord function that lets you easily play musically ideal chords — just with one finger — and has style features that automatically provide musical accompaniment (rhythm and bass backing) that you can trigger just by playing the root note of the chord. Even if you’re by yourself, you can enjoy performing as if playing with an entire backing band!
Smart Chord feature lets you automatically play chords and enjoy playing the styles with just one finger.
Just play chords with the left hand and the auto-accompaniment feature will play styles (rhythm + bass + chord) that matches.
When selecting a voice, style, or function, you can directly select it using the category button/number button without having to turn a dial.
Duo mode allows two people to play together on the same instrument by creating two middle C notes. Enjoy playing the piano with friends and family!
The Song Book includes the musical scores of the built-in songs and also provides tips for the on-board lessons with images, glossary and more.
