-Have a look at the Style Categories.

-Learn how to add or remove Style or Voices to your favourite folder.

-How to balance the volume between voices, Style, song, etc.
  • From the Balance display called up via [Menu] → [Balance], you can adjust the volume balance between the keyboard parts (Main, Layer and Left), Style and Song and the microphone sound. Slide your finger vertically for each part to adjust the volume.
  • Since the volume of MIDI Songs and Audio Songs are handled individually, you need to set the volume balance for each case (when a MIDI Song is selected, or when an Audio Song is selected). 

-Learn how to use Multitrack Recording which is so easy to use with the CVP-609 and the Clavinova CVP-605 Touch Screen.

  •  MIDI recording
    With this method, recorded performances are saved to the instrument or a USB flash memory as an SMF (format 0) MIDI file. If you want to re-record a specific section or edit parameters such as Voice, use this method. Also if you want to record your performance to each channel one by one, execute Multi Track Recording of the MIDI recording method. Since a MIDI Song can be converted to an Audio Song after recording,  you may want to use MIDI recording (with overdubbing and multiple parts) to first create a complex arrangement you would not otherwise be able to play live, then convert it to an Audio Song. This instrument allows you to record approximately 300 KB per Song.
    • Audio recording
    With this method, recorded performances are saved to a USB flash memory as an Audio file. Recording is done without designating the recorded part. Since it is saved in stereo WAV format of normal CD quality resolution (44.1kHz/16bit) by default, it can be transmitted to and played on portable music players by using a computer. The file format can be changed to MP3 via [Menu] → [SongSetting] → [Rec] → [Audio Rec Format]. This instrument allows you to record up to 80 minutes per single recording. 

    Before recording, make the necessary settings such as Voice/Style selection (for MIDI recording and Audio Recording) and the microphone connection (only for Audio Recording, if you want to record your vocal). As necessary, connect the USB flash memory to the [USB TO DEVICE] terminal, especially if you want to execute Audio Recording.

    With MIDI Recording, you can create a MIDI Song consisting of 16 channels by recording your performance to each channel one by one. In recording a piano piece, for example, you can record the right-hand part to channel 1 then record the left-hand part to channel 2, allowing you create a complete piece which may be difficult to play live with both hands together. To record a performance with Style playback, for example, record the Style playback to channels 9 – 16, then record melodies to channel 1 while listening to the already recorded Style playback. In this way, you can create an entire Song which would otherwise be difficult, or even impossible, to play live.

    On the Home display, touch[] at the upper right to expand the Song area, then touch [I] (Rec) to call up the Song Recording window. 

    Specify the target channel and part for recording.

    To specify a channel, touch and turn on the corresponding number. To turn the channel number off, touch it again. To specify a part, touch the part icon of the specified channel to call up the Part Selection window, then select the desired part. 

    To make the settings quickly, simply select the keyboard part ([Extra], [Left] or [Right] located at the bottom left).

    Right: This can be selected when recording only the right-hand part. The Main part of the Voice will be recorded to channel 1, and the Layer part will be recorded to channel 3.
    Left: This can be selected when recording only the left-hand part. The Left part of the Voice will be recorded to channel 2. When the Left part of the Voice is off, the Main part will be recorded to channel 2 and the Layer part will be recorded to channel 4.
    Extra: This can be selected when recording only Style playback. The Style parts will be recorded to channels 9 – 16.

    After you finish your performance, touch[] (Stop) on the Home display to stop recording. 

    To hear the recorded performance, touch (Play/Pause). 

    Record your performance to another Channel by repeating steps.  select a Channel which has no recorded data and play the keyboard while listening to the already recorded data. 

    On the Home display, touch (Save) shown in the Song area.
    The Song Selection display appears for selecting a destination to save the recorded Song.
