Playing Different Tones with the Right and Left Hands (Split Play)

You can play different tones in the left and right sides of the keyboard, divided at a certain key.

This feature is called “Split Play,” and the key at which the keyboard is divided is called the “Split Point.”



1. While holding down the [Transpose] button, press the [Twin Piano] button.

The display will indicate “SPLIT.”

Name of the right-hand tone

When Split is turned on, the keyboard settings will be as follows.

Split Point (Power-up default: F 3)

Left-hand Tone

Right-hand Tone

2. To exit Split Play, hold down the [Transpose] button and press the [Twin Piano] button once again.

* Depending on which tones are being used together, the tones might sound different because no effect is applied to the left-hand tone.
