Do not use the instrument near other electrical products such as televi-
sions, 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 acci-
dentally 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 or plastic 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, use the provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause dam-
age 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.
SAVING USER DATA
Always save data to a floppy disk frequently, in order to help prevent
the loss of important data due to a malfunction or user operating error.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or
modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use.
Make sure to discard used batteries according to local regulations.
PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep these precautions in a safe place for future reference.
Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble the internal parts
or modify them in any way. The instrument contains no user-serviceable
parts. If it should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immedi-
ately and have it inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or
wet conditions, or place containers on it containing liquids which might
spill into any openings.
If the AC adaptor cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is
a sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument, or if any unusual
smells or smoke should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off
the power switch, disconnect the adaptor plug from the outlet, and
have the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
Use the specified adaptor (PA-6 or an equivalent recommended by
Yamaha) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the
instrument or overheating.
Before cleaning the instrument, always remove the electric plug from
the outlet. Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which
may have accumulated on it.
CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage to the
instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
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, al-
ways 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.
If the instrument is not to be in use for a long time, remove the batteries
from it, in order to prevent possible fluid leakage from the battery.
Keep batteries away from children.
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.
Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or ex-
treme 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 dam-
age to the internal components.
WARNING
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical shock,
short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:

99...). If the number dis-
played is a value like a transpose value, it will stop changing when
the maximum or minimum value is reached.
Dial
Like the number buttons [1]-[0], [+],[–], the
dial is used to change settings and values.
Rotating it to the right (clockwise) increases
the value, while rotating it to the left (counter-
clockwise) decreases it. The dial can also be
used to toggle on/off settings.

Shortcuts
To make operation as easy and as efficient as possible, the PSR-730/630 features a number of
“shortcuts” which allow you to jump directly to certain functions without having to use the MENU
and SUB MENU buttons. All of these shortcuts work in the same way: press and hold a panel
button for a few seconds to go to the related function. For example, if you press and hold the
[REVERB] button for a few seconds, you will go directly to the REVERB type selection function.
The shorcuts will also be described where appropriate throughout this manual.
Basic Display Operation
There are two modes in the PSR-730/630: Style Mode and Song Mode, and normally one of them is selected. Pressing
the STYLE button selects Style Mode, lighting the STYLE icon, while pressing the Song button selects Song Mode and
lights the SONG icon, displaying the current mode.

Setting Up
This section contains information about setting up your PSR-730/630 and preparing to play.
Be sure to go through this section carefully before using your PSR-730/630.
Power Supply
Although the PSR-730/630 will run either from an optional AC adaptor or
batteries, Yamaha recommends use of the more environmentally safe AC adaptor.
Follow the instructions below according to the power source you intend to use.
Never interrupt the power
supply (e.g. remove the
batteries or unplug the
AC adaptor) during any
PSR-730/630 record op-
eration! Doing so can re-
sult in a loss of data.
Using An Optional AC Power Adaptor
zPlug an optional Yamaha PA-6 Power Adaptor into a wall AC outlet.
xThen plug the DC output cable from the PA-6 into the DC IN 10-12V jack on
the rear panel of the PSR-730/630. The internal batteries are automatically
disconnected when an AC Power Adaptor is used.
Use ONLY a Yamaha PA-6 AC
Power Adaptor (or other
adaptor specifically recom-
mended by Yamaha) to power
your instrument from the AC
mains. The use of other adap-
tors may result in irreparable
damage to both the adaptor
and the PSR-730/630.
Unplug the AC Power Adap-
tor when not using the PSR-
730/630, or during electrical
storms.
Using Batteries
For battery operation the PSR-730/630 requires six 1.5V SUM-1, “D” size, R-
20 or equivalent batteries.
When the batteries need to be replaced “Lo Battery!!” may appear on top of the
display, the volume may be reduced, the sound may be distorted, and other problems
may occur. When this happens, turn the power off and replace the batteries.
Replace the batteries as follows:
zOpen the battery compartment cover located on the instrument’s bottom panel.
xInsert the six new batteries, being careful to follow the polarity markings on
the inside of the compartment.
cReplace the compartment cover, making sure that it locks firmly in place.
DC IN 10-12V
PA-6
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 pos-
sible fluid leakage from
the battery.
Plugging or unplugging
the AC power adaptor
while the batteries are in-
stalled will reset the PSR-
730/630 to the defaults.
When turning the power OFF, simply reverse the procedure.
Important Notes on Battery Use
• Since the PSR-730 and PSR-630 consume a considerable
amount of power, Yamaha recommends the use of an AC power
adaptor rather than batteries. The batteries should be consid-
ered an auxiliary power source for data backup.
The floppy disk drive, in particular, uses a large amount of
power, so it is important to always use an AC power adaptor
when performing disk-intensive operations such as song re-
cording/playback or data load/save. If you attempt to use
battery power for these operations and the batteries do fail, you
will lose not only the data you’re recording or saving, but also
other data in internal memory including user styles, user pads,
registration memory, etc.
Taking the above precautions into consideration, always use an
AC power adaptor when using the PSR-630/730 for an impor-
tant performance or when creating important data.
When using batteries and the “Lo Battery!!” warning initially
appears on the display, the volume will drop a little but you will
be able to use the instrument for a while longer. When the “Lo
Battery!!” warning begins to appear every few seconds, re-
place the batteries as soon as possible.

• Be sure that you do not
press the footswitch while
turning the power on. If
you do, the ON/OFF sta-
tus of the footswitch will
be reversed.
When the sustain or
sostenuto pedal func-
tions are being used
(page 117), some
voices may sound con-
tinuously or have a long
decay after the notes
have been released
while the pedal is held.

Stereo
System
Connecting PSR-
730/630 to external
equipment only after
turning off power for
all devices. To pre-
vent damage to the
speakers, set the
volume of the exter-
nal devices at the
minimum setting be-
fore connecting
them. Failure to ob-
serve these cautions
may result in elec-
tric shock or equip-
ment damage.
A standard pair of stereo headphones can be
plugged in here for private practice or late-night
playing. The internal stereo speaker system is
automatically shut off when a pair of head-
phones is plugged into the PHONES jack.
Do not listen with the headphones at high vol-
ume for long periods of time. Doing so may
cause hearing loss.
The sustain function causes the sound from a
depressed key to continue, even after the key is
released. Plug an optional Yamaha FC4 or FC5
footswitch into the sustain jack and use it to
switch sustain on and off. The footswitch con-
nected to this jack can also be set to replicate the
functions of some panel buttons, doing things
like starting and stopping accompaniment (page
117).
The rear-panel AUX OUT R and L/L+R jacks
deliver the output of the PSR-730/630 for con-
nection to a keyboard amplifier, stereo sound
system, a mixing console, or tape recorder. If
you will be connecting the PSR-730/630 to a
monaural sound system, use only the L/L+R
jack. When a plug is inserted into the L/L+R jack
only, the left- and right-channel signals are com-
bined and delivered via the L/L+R jack so you
don’t lose any of the PSR-730/630 sound. (Use
phone plugs).
FOOT VOLUME Jack
Connecting an optional Yamaha FC7 foot con-
troller lets you use your foot to change the
volume as you play the PSR-730/630 (expres-
sion function). The foot controller connected to
this jack can also be set to replicate the functions
of the main volume controls, such as accompani-
ment or song volume (page 117).

The PSR-730/630 allows up to three voices to be selected at the same time: “R1”
(Right-hand 1), “R2”, (Right-hand 2) and “L (Left-hand). The “R1” voice is the basic
voice of the PSR-730/630 and it’s used when you’re playing a single voice over the
entire range of the keyboard as with an acoustic piano. You can also have two voices
play together at the same time (R1 voice and R2 voice) or play different voices with
the right and left hands (R1 voice and L voice) (pages 19, 20). The numbers of the
currently selected R1, R2, and L voices are all shown at the lower right of on the
display panel. Normally, the R1 voice number is also shown at the upper right of the
display panel.
Choose a voice you like, and try it out!
Refer to the panel voice list or XG voice list when selecting voices (page 133).

along following the same chord progression. Using Auto Accompaniment, even a
solo performer can enjoy playing with an entire band or orchestra backing them up.
When Auto Accompaniment is turned on...
The specified left-hand section of the keyboard becomes the Auto Accompa-
niment” section, and chords played in this section are automatically detected
and used as a basis for fully automatic accompaniment with the selected style.
The default setting for
the Auto Accompani-
ment split point is [54]

4Play the Melody with the Accompaniment
As soon as you play any chord that the PSR-730/630 can “recognize” on the left-
hand section of the keyboard, the PSR-730/630 will automatically begin to play the
chord along with the selected rhythm and an appropriate bass line. The name of the
current chord will appear on the display.
The chord will be recognized according to the rules set in the Fingering Mode.
For the method for entering chords, see page 32 “Auto Accompaniment Fingering Modes.
The Auto Accompaniment will continue playing even if the left hand releases the
keys. As you press each chord in the song, you can play the melody along with the
accompaniment.
When the Fingering Mode
is set for “Single Finger,”
“Fingered 1,” “Fingered 2,”
or “Multi-Finger,” playing a
chord in the auto accom-
paniment section while
the rhythm is stopped will
cause Bass + Chord to be
played (for all styles).
However, when the Auto
Accompaniment split point
and the Split Voice split
point are the same key,
playing a chord in the ac-
companiment section with
the rhythm stopped will
cause Bass + L voice to
be played.

Accompaniment Sections
There are 8 types of Auto Accompaniment sections that allow you to vary the
arrangement of the accompaniment to match the song you are playing. They are:
Intro, Main A and B, Fill-in (AA, AB, BA, BB) and Ending. By switching between
them while playing you can put together a single song.
INTRO Section
This is the beginning of the song. When the intro finishes playing, accompa-
niment shifts to the main section.
MAIN Section
There are two variations that can play in the main section of the song: A and
B. The Auto Accompaniment will automatically play following along with the
chords that you play.
FILL-IN Section
Fill-in livens up pauses in the song. Whenever you press the MAIN/AUTO
FILL [A] or [B] button during accompaniment, the PSR-730/630 will generate
an appropriate “fill-in” (one of four types: AA, AB, BA, and BB) which will
smoothly connect the current section to the selected section — even if it is the
same section.
ENDING Section
This is the ending portion of the song. When the ending is finished, Auto
Accompaniment will stop.
The MAIN A section is
automatically selected
whenever the PSR-730/
630 power is initially
turned on.
The indicator of the desti-
nation section (MAIN A
or B) will flash while the
corresponding fill-in is
playing. During this time
you can change the des-
tination section by press-
ing the appropriate
MAIN/AUTO FILL [A] or
[B] button.
You can use the intro
section even in the
middle of the song by
pressing the INTRO but-
ton during the song.
If the MAIN/AUTO FILL
A/B button is pressed af-
ter the final half beat
(eighth note) of the mea-

The Synchro Stop Function
When the Synchro Stop function is engaged, accompaniment playback will stop
completely when all keys in the auto-accompaniment section of the keyboard are
released. Accompaniment playback will start again as soon as a chord is played.
The BEAT indicators in the display will flash while the accompaneiment is
stopped.
The Synchro Stop function is engaged by pressing the [SYNC STOP] button
so that the SYNC STOP icon in the display appears. Press the [SYNC STOP]
button again so that the icon disappears to turn the Synchro Stop function off.
The Synchro Stop
function can not be
turned on when the
FULL KEYBOARD
AUTO ACCOMPANI-
MENT fingering mode
is selected. The Syn-
chro Stop function will
be automatically
turned off if the FULL
KEYBOARD fingering
mode is selected while
the Synchro Stop func-
tion is on.
Accompaniment Track Muting
The PSR-730/630 has eight accompaniment tracks — RHYTHM 1, RHYTHM 2,
BASS, CHORD 1, CHORD 2, PAD, PHRASE 1, and PHRASE 2 — that you can
control to modify the “orchestration” and therefore the overall sound of the accompa-
niment. When a style is selected the icons corresponding to the tracks which contain
data for any section of that style will light.
What’s in the Tracks
RHYTHM 1 & 2 These are the main rhythm tracks. The RHYTHM
tracks produce the drum and percussion sounds.
BASS The BASS track always plays a bass line, but the
voice will change to fit the selected style … acoustic
bass, synth bass, tuba, etc.
CHORD 1 & 2 These tracks provide the rhythmic chordal accom-
paniment required by each style. You’ll find guitar,
piano, and other chordal instruments here.
PAD This track plays long chords where necessary, using
sustained instruments such as strings, organ, choir.
PHRASE 1 & 2 This is where the musical embellishments reside.
The PHRASE tracks are used for punchy brass
stabs, arpeggiated chords, and other extras that
make the accompaniment more interesting.
Individual track voic-
es, volume, and
other parameters
can be changed by
using the REVOICE
function — page
112.
Individual accompaniment tracks can be turned OFF (muted) or ON by pressing the
TRACK buttons corresponding to the target tracks. The track icon will disappear
when a track is muted. By turning the tracks OFF and ON in different combinations,
you can create various arrangements from a single accompaniment style.

Accompaniment Volume Control
The volume of the accompaniment in relation to the keyboard can be adjusted for
the best overall balance by using the ACMP/SONG VOLUME [] and [] buttons.
When either button is pressed the current accompaniment volume setting will appear
on the top line of the display for a few seconds.
The accompaniment volume range is from “0” (no sound) to “127” (maximum
volume). The default setting is “100”. Press the ACMP/SONG VOLUME [] button
to decrease the volume or the [] button to increase the volume. Press the button
briefly to single step, or hold to continuously decrement or increment.
Using Virtual Arranger
When the Virtual Arranger function is turned on while Auto Accompaniment is
active, simply pressing chords in the auto accompaniment section causes the Auto
Accompaniment to automatically play slightly different chord variations, which
creates a livelier and more melodic accompaniment. Turning the Virtual Arranger
function off returns to normal Auto Accompaniment.
Press the [STYLE] button to select the STYLE menu. The triangular indicator will
appear next to “STYLE” to the right of the display, and the PSR-730/630 will enter
Style Mode (the STYLE icon will light).
Change the on/off status using the [+], [–] buttons or the Data Dial.
While the accompani-
ment volume setting
appears on the top
line of the display the

The FINGERED 1 Mode
The Fingered 1 mode lets you finger your own chords on the AUTO ACCOMPA-
NIMENT section of the keyboard (i.e. all keys to the left of and including the split-
point key — normally 54) while the PSR-730/630 supplies appropriately orches-
trated rhythm, bass, and chord accompaniment in the selected style.
The FINGERED 1 mode recognizes the following chords:
Notes in parentheses
can be omitted.
If you play any three
adjacent keys (includ-
ing black keys), the
chord sound will be
canceled and only the
rhythm instruments
will continue playing
(CHORD CANCEL
function).
Playing a single key
or two same root keys
in the adjacent oc-
taves produces ac-
companiment based
only on the root.
A perfect fifth (1 + 5)
produces accompani-
ment based only on
the root and fifth
which can be used
with both major and
minor chords.
The chord fingerings
listed are all in “root”
position, but other in-
versions can be used
— with the following
exceptions:
m7, m7
b
5, 6, m6,
sus4, aug, dim7,

b
5, 6(9), m7(11),
1+2+5.
Inversion of the 7sus4
chord is not recog-
nized if the 5th is
omitted.
The AUTO ACCOM-
PANIMENT will some-
times not change
when related chords
are played in se-
quence (e.g. some
minor chords followed
by the minor seventh).
Two-note fingerings
will produce a chord
based on the previ-
ously played chord.

The FINGERED 2 Mode
This is essentially the same as the FINGERED 1 mode, described above, except
that the FINGERED 2 mode additionally allows you to specify the lowest note
of each chord — simply, the lowest note played in the AUTO ACCOMPANI-
MENT section of the keyboard is used as the accompaniment bass note. This
means you can specify “on-bass” chords in which the main bass note for the
chord is not the root of the chord. For a C major chord, for example, you could
use E (the third) or G (the fifth) as the bass note rather than C.
CC on E C on G
Example for “C” chords
The FULL KEYBOARD Mode (Full Key)
When the FULL KEYBOARD Mode is selected, the PSR-730/630 will auto-
matically create appropriate accompaniment while you play just about anything
using both hands, anywhere on the keyboard. You do not have to worry about
specifying the accompaniment chords. The name of the detected chord will
appear in the display.
When the FULL KEY-
BOARD mode is se-
lected, the split point set-
ting (see page 30) for the
auto accompaniment will
be ignored.
Chord detection occurs
at approximately 8th-note
intervals. Extremely short
chords — less than an
8th note in length — may
not be detected.

The Stop Accompaniment Function
While the SINGLE FINGER, FINGERED 1, FINGERED 2, or MULTI-FIN-
GER mode is selected chords played in the AUTO ACCOMPNIMENT section of
the keyboard are also detected and played by the PSR-730/630 Auto Accompani-
ment system when the accompaniment is stopped (except when the FULL KEY-
BOARD mode is engaged). In this case the bass note and chord voices are selected
automatically.
When the AUTO AC-
COMPANIMENT split
point and SPLIT
VOICE split point are
set to the same key,
the L voice and the
automatically selected
bass note will sound.
The MULTI-FINGER Mode (Multi)
This is the default accompaniment mode. The MULTI-FINGER mode auto-
matically detects SINGLE FINGER or FINGERED 1 chord fingerings, so you
can use either type of fingering without having to switch fingering modes.
Groove and Dynamics (PSR-730)
The PSR-730 Groove & Dynamics function lets you temporarily change the
timing, velocity and gate time of notes during playback of any of the preset
accompaniment styles (style numbers 1-100).
Groove .......... Lets you play the music with some swing or put a little groove
in the beat by making subtle shifts in the timing (clock) of the
accompaniment.
Dynamics...... Changes the impression of the accompaniment by varying the
velocity of the notes in relation to the timing.
The Groove & Dynamics function is composed of the four items below. When you
choose an accompaniment style, the most appropriate template or value for each
item will be automatically set.
• Beat Groove Template (Automatically selected from 49 types)
• Measure Groove Template (Automatically selected from 25 types)
• Dynamics Template (Automatically selected from 17 types)
• Dynamics Rate (Automatically set within a range of 0-100%)
• Expand Rate (Automatically set within a range of 0-400%)
• Boost Rate (Automatically set within a range of 0-400%)

Targeted Beat: Beats to be converted.
8 = Eighth note
12 = Eighth note triplet
16 = 16th note
24 = 16th note triplet
Converted Beat: Converted results.
For example, selecting one of the templates, 12-17 (16 as Targeted Beat and 8 as Converted
Beat), indicates every 16th note will be converted to eighth notes.
Swing: Delays the timing of the converted beat. There are six types: A

Digital Effects
With the digital effects built into the PSR-730/630 you can add ambiance and depth to your
music in a variety of ways—such as adding reverb that makes you sound like you are playing
in a concert hall or adding harmony notes for a full, rich sound
With the PSR-730, you can take advantage of even more sophisticated features like the Multi
Effect function that lets apply several effects together or the Digital Equalizer that lets you
adjust volume for each of 5 frequency bands.
Digital Effects
REVERB Button You can create a reverb effect that makes you sound like
you are playing in places like a concert hall, or live in a
club.

sound as though multiple parts were being played to-
gether at the same time.
DSP Button In addition to the reverb and chorus types, the effects
usually used to a specific part, such as the distortion and
tremolo, can be selected.
PSR-730
MULTI-EFFECT Button You can apply reverb, chorus or DSP effects to particular

Multi Effect (PSR-730)
By adding Multi-Effect
to Reverb, Chorus
and DSP, the PSR-
730 can have up to 5
system effects.
Since Multi-Effect is
installed closer to the
tone generator than
Reverb, Chorus or
DSP, it can function
as an insertion effect.
See page 143, “About
Digital Effects.”
Multi Effect allows you to apply three types of effects (reverb, chorus and DSP) more
powerfully and effectively.
How Multi Effect Works
With Multi Effect, you can combine 2 effects (Effect 1/2) and apply them to the output
from the keyboard (R1/R2/L parts).
There are 2 ways to combine the effects; in series or in parallel.
Example 1) Applying Effects 1 and 2 to separate parts (parallel)
Example 2) Applying Effects 1 and 2 to a single part (series)

The Digital Equalizer (PSR-730)
Usually an equalizer is used to correct the sound output from amps or speakers to
match the special character of the room. The sound is divided into several frequency
bands, then by raising or lowering the level for each band, the correction is made.
Adjusting the sound you play according to the genre—classical music more refined,
pops music more crisp, and rock music more dynamic—can also serve to draw out the
special characteristics of the music and make your performance more enjoyable.
The PSR-730 possesses a high grade 5 band digital equalizer function. With this
function, a final effect—tone control—can be added to the output of your instrument.
Example) 04 (Bright)
If you press the [DIGITAL EQ] button, the DIGITAL EQ icon will light up, and
the Digital EQ effect will be turned on. After setting the Digital EQ type, the equalizer
effect will be applied to the overall output of the PSR-730.

Frequency Bands (5 bands)
LowGain 80 Hz
LowMidGain 500 Hz
MidGain 1.0 kHz

The digital equalizer adjusts the gain (amplitude change) in each of the 5 frequency
bands within a range of -12 to 0 to +12 decibels [dB]. Try listening to each of the five
preset equalizer settings and compare them.

The Modulation function applies a vibrato effect to notes played on the keyboard (R1, R2, L
voices). Rolling the MODULATION wheel all the way towards yourself minimizes the depth
of the effect, while rotating it away from yourself increases it.
Changing the Modulation Wheel Function
The Modulation Wheel (PSR-730)
It’s possible to change the effect that is applied when you rotate the MODULA-
TION Wheel. You can select from 3 types: modulation, brightness or resonance
Modulation...........Applies vibrato effects to the voices from the keyboard.
Brightness ...........Adjusts the brightness of the R1 voice played on the keyboard.
Increasing the depth makes the sound brighter, while decreas-
ing it makes it softer.
Resonance...........Adds resonance to the R1 voices played on the keyboard.
Use the MENU [] and [] buttons to move the triangular indicator in the display
next to “OVERALL”.
Then use the SUB MENU [] and [] buttons to select “ModWheel”. The effect
currently set for the modulation wheel will appear to the right of the top line of the

Disk Operations
There is a disk drive installed in the PSR-730/630. By inserting a floppy disk into it, you can
do many things: record and playback user songs, save and load user styles (page 98), user
pads (page 106), or registration memory data (page 57).
You can save any number of user styles and registration data on floppy disks, make song
libraries or find many other ways to make playing the PSR-730/630 more efficient.
There is a sample disk packed with the PSR-730/630. It contains 20 XG songs and 8 style
files. To play back the songs see page 76. To load the styles see page 70.
Floppy Disk Handling Precautions
Floppy disks are an inexpensive, convenient, and reliable way to
store your music data. They are not indestructable, however, and
should be handled with care. Observe the following points to
ensure the long-term safety of your disks and data.
Type of Disk
Use the 3.5-inch 2DD or 2HD floppy disks with the PSR-730/
630.
Taking Care of Your Floppy Disks
Never attempt to eject a disk during a read or write operation (i.e.
while the disk drive is operating). Doing so can damage both the
disk and the drive.
Never turn the power ON or OFF while a disk is in the drive.
Always eject the disk before turning the power OFF.
To eject a floppy disk from the disk drive press the eject button
slowly as far as it will go. Then when the disk is fully ejected,
remove it by hand. The disk may not be ejected properly if the
eject button is pressed too quickly or if it is not pressed in far
enough (the eject button may become stuck halfway with the
disk extending from the slot by only a few millimeters). If this is
the case, do not attempt to pull out the partially ejected disk.
Doing so may damage the disk drive mechanism and/or the
floppy disk. To remove a partially ejected disk, try pressing the
eject button once again or push the disk back into the slot, then
repeat the eject procedure carefully.
Do not store disks in places exposed to direct sunlight or other
sources of heat. The acceptable storage temperature range is
approximately 4° to 53° C (39° to 127° F).
Do not store disks in areas subject to extreme dryness or
humidity. The acceptable relative humidity range is approxi-
mately 8 to 90%.
Do not store disks in areas contaminated with dust, sand, smoke,
etc.
Do not place heavy objects such as books on top of a disk.
Avoid getting floppy disks wet, particularly with oily or sticky
fluids. A disk that has been wet with water should be allowed to
dry naturally before use. Disks contaminated by other fluids can
cause damage to the disk drive and should be discarded.
Be sure to apply the disk label at the proper position. When
changing the label never cover the old label with a new label;
always remove the old label first.
Head Cleaning
With extended use the read/write head of the disk drive will pick
up dust and other particles that will eventually cause data errors.
If this occurs, clean the head with a 3.5 inch head cleaning disk
available from most computer supply stores.
Data Backup
For maximum data security we strongly recommended that you
keep two copies of important data on separate floppy disks.
These disks should ideally be stored in separate locations. This
gives you a backup if one disk is lost or damaged.
Protecting Your Data (Write Protect Tab)
To prevent accidental erasure of important data, slide the disk’s
write-protect tab to the “protect” position (tab open). If you
attempt to modify the disk when the write-protect tab is set to ON
position, “Disk Write Protected!!” will appear on the display
indicating that the operation is not possible.
Do not insert anything but floppy disks into the disk drive. Other
objects can damage the disk drive or floppy disk.
Never open the disk shutter by hand or touch the internal surface
of the disk. Dirt, dust, or grease on the disk’s magnetic surface
can cause data errors.
Never leave disks near a speaker, TV, or other device that emits
a strong magnetic field. Strong magnetic fields can partially
erase the data on the disk.

User Style/User Pad/Registration Memory Data
The PSR-730/630 has User Style, User Pad and Registration Memory functions
installed. The data recorded with these functions can also be saved individually or
gathered together to floppy disks and also the data (files) saved on disks can be loaded
individually or gathered together into the PSR-730/630.
Data that Can be Saved or Loaded with the PSR-730/630
Up to 43 “All” type files (page 68)
can be recorded on a 2HD disk.
Up to 21 “All” type files can be
recorded on a 2DD disk.
It may not be possible
to record the full 60

Setting up commercially available floppy disks (3.5 inch, 2HD/2DD
type) for use with the PSR-730/630 is called formatting
Follow the steps below to format a disk.
1Insert the Disk into the Disk Drive
Insert a commercially available 3.5 inch floppy disk (unformatted) into
the disk drive, with the shutter on the disk towards the drive, and with the
label side facing upward.
The “DISK” menu will be automatically selected, and the Sub Menu
item “Format Disk? NO/YES” will appear on the top line of the display.
Format
After formatting, the capacity of a
2HD disk will be 1 Mbyte, and of
a 2DD disk will be 720 Kbyte.
If you insert an unformatted disk
with the write protect tab in the
ON position into the drive, “For-
mat Disk? NO/YES” will appear,
but when you try to format it,
“Disk Write Protected!!” will be
displayed. Eject the disk, move
the protect tab to the OFF posi-
tion, and reinsert it in the drive.
The “DISK” menu won’t be se-
lected automatically when you in-
sert the formatted disk. If you
want to format the formatted disk
to record from scratch, first insert
the disk you want to format, then
press the Menu button, next
press the Sub Menu button to
show the “Format Disk? YES” on
the display.
If data is already saved on the
disk, be careful not to format it. If
you format the disk, all the previ-
ously recorded data will be de-
leted.
While formatting is in progress
(while “Now Formatting” is dis-
played) , never eject the disk or
turn off the power to the PSR-
730/630.
If a disk that cannot be read by
the PSR-730/630 is inserted into
the disk drive, it will be treated
the same as an unformatted
floppy disk. Take care not to
erase important data by acciden-
tally formatting a disk.
If you want to reformat a disk
that already has been formatted
for the PSR-730/630, insert the
disk in the drive, select the “For-
mat Disk? YES” item from the
sub menu of the “DISK” menu,
then proceed as for a normal for-
mat.
If you insert the formatted disk
and you press the [-] (NO) button
or eject the disk in the step 2, the
display will return to the “Format
Disk?”.

Even if you chose a
file where data is al-
ready saved because
you want to overwrite
the data, renaming
the file will cause the
new data to be saved
in a different file, and
the old data won’t be
overwritten.
While data is being
saved (“Now Saving”
is displayed), never
eject the floppy disk
or turn off power to
the PSR-730/630.
To overwrite the data already saved to an existing file, use the [–] and [+] buttons
or the Data Dial to select the file you want to overwrite.

unneeded files on the
disk (page 75), or ex-
change the disk for a
new one and repeat
the save operation.
If a write error occurs
during a save opera-
tion, “Disk Error” will
be displayed. If the er-
ror reoccurs after re-
peating the save op-
eration, there could
be something wrong

Song Recording
You can record your own music performance on a floppy disk as a user song.
User Songs are recorded on floppy disks. They can’t be recorded unless a floppy disk is in-
serted into the disk drive.
The Shortcut functions are not available when one of the Record modes is engaged.
The quick recording
method is different
from the multi record-
ing method but for
both of them, the re-
corded data is re-
corded on tracks 1–
16.
Quick Recording
You can easily record four tracks from the PSR-730/630 keyboard together with on

After finishing your recording of a user song, you can play it back in the same way
as one of the preset demo songs.
Being able to record
note on/off and velocity
means being able to
record forte or piano,
crescendo or diminu-
endo, and other subtle
elements of expression
from the keyboard as
you play them.
Note ON (key press),
note OFF (key release),
and velocity (strength of
key press) are MIDI
data events (playing
information)(page 119).
Be careful to avoid the
song data loss that will
occur during recording
if the power is turned
off, the AC adaptor is
unplugged from the out-
let, or the batteries lose
power.
The data you can record in user songs using Quick Recording or Multi Recording are
as follows:
The accompaniment tracks record the following and data:
Accompaniment style number*
Accompaniment track changes*
(8 tracks: track on/off, voice number, volume, pan,
reverb depth, chorus depth)
Section changes and their timing
• Chord changes and their timing.
• Accompaniment volume
• Reverb type.
• Chorus type.
• Tempo and time signature*
The keyboard (R1/R2/L) tracks record the following and data:
Note on/off (key press and release)
Velocity (strength of key press)
R1/R2/L voice number, volume, octave*, pan, reverb
depth, chorus depth, DSP depth.
Reverb on/off and type
Chorus on/off and type
DSP (including variation) on/off and type
Multi effect on/off, type and set-
tings (PSR-730)
• Harmony on/off, type
• Sustain pedal on/off
• Pitch bend, pitch bend range.
• Tempo
The maximum amount of song memory is 65,000 notes for 2DD disks and 130,000 notes for 2HD disks.

About the Recording with the Digital Effects Applied
Only one type of each of the Digital Effects, Reverb, Chorus, DSP and Multi Effect
(PSR-730) can be set at one time. Be aware of the following facts, especially when
recording a song with different effects applied to the different tracks.
AReverb type and Chorus type effects can be set and recorded independently for
each of the 16 tracks. However, only the latest settings made (one each) will be
effective if several effects are used in a song (the latest setting priority).
[EX.] While the panel REVERB button is turned on:
1. Select the Hall 1 (Reverb) for the Accompaniment track, and record the Accompa-
niment track for ten measures from the beginning.
2. Start recording the keyboard (R1) track with the Hall 1 (Reverb) selected from the
beginning and then change the effect type to Room 1 (Reverb) respectively from
the fifth measure through the end.
When you play back the song recorded as above, the first four measures will be
played back with the Hall 1 applied to both the Accompaniment track and
keyboard (R1) track, and the remaining six measures, from fifth through the end,
with the Room 1 applied to both tracks. The effect types set for the Accompani-
ment track are replaced with the latest settings. Only the Depth for each track
remains the same.
Song Recording
91
BDSP type effects can be set and recorded for R1/R2/L part(s) when used as System
effect and for R1 part when used as Insertion effect. They can’t be recorded for the
track used as the Accompaniment and/or Harmony part. During playback, only the
latest setting will be effective if several types are used for the tracks in a song (the
latest setting priority).
[EX.]
1. Turn on the panel DSP button, and start recording on the track 1 with the Distortion
(DSP type: No.42 Dist.Hard) selected for ten measures from the beginning.
2. Turn off the panel DSP button, and start recording on the track 2 without any effect
from the beginning. Then turn on the panel DSP button again at the fifth measure,
and continue recording to the end with the Rotary Speaker (DSP type: No.28 Rotary
SP.1) selected.
When you play back the song recorded with the above condition, the first four
measures will be played back with the Distortion applied only to track 1, and the
remaining six measures, from the fifth through the end, with the Rotary Speaker
applied only to track 2. The DSP type set for track 1 is replaced by the one set for
the track 2.
C(PSR-730)
Multi effects can be set and recorded for R1/R2/L part(s). They can’t be recorded
for the track used as the Accompaniment and/or Harmony part. During playback,
only the latest setting will be effective if several types are used for the tracks in a
song (the latest setting priority).
[EX.] Two Multi Effect types set in series for R1
1. Multi Effect is turned on and 10 measures are recorded for R1 on track 1.
2. Recording is started for R1 on track 2 with Multi effect off, and then it is turned on
at the fifth measure.
When you play back the song recorded with the above conditions, the first four
measures will be played back with the Multi Effect applied only to track 1, and the
remaining six measures, from the fifth through the end, with Multi Effect applied
only to track 2.
