Performing with Two Layered Tones (Dual Play)

You can play two tones simultaneously from each note of the keyboard. This feature is called “Dual Play.”

As an example, here’s how to layer piano and strings tones.

1. While holding down the Piano [Grand] button, press the [Strings] button .

Both buttons will light.

When you play the keyboard, you’ll hear both the piano and the strings tones.


* Dual play is not available if Split Play (p. 20) or Twin Piano (p. 24) are turned on.

* For some combinations of sounds, the effect is not applied to tone 2, and this may affect how the tone sounds.

* It’s not possible to layer Piano [Grand] and Piano [Early] tones together.
