6
Precautions
Your MU5 will give you years of reliable service if you follow the simple
precautions below:
LOCATION
Keep the instrument away from locations where it is likely to be
exposed to high temperatures (such as direct sunlight) or humid-
ity. Also avoid locations which are subject to excessive dust
accumulation or vibration which could cause mechanical damage.
USE THE CORRECT POWER ADAPTOR
Use only the recommended PA-3, PA-4 or PA-40 Power Adaptor
for supplying power to the instrument. Use of another adaptor
may cause serious damage to the instrument or the adaptor itself.
(Never use the PA-3B.)
MAKE SURE POWER IS OFF WHEN MAKING OR
REMOVING CONNECTIONS
To prevent damage to the instrument and other connected equip-
ment, always turn off the power prior to connecting or discon-
necting cables. Also, turn the power off when the instrument is
not in use, and disconnect the power adaptor during electric
storms.
HANDLE THE INSTRUMENT WITH CARE
Although the instrument has been constructed to withstand the
rigors of normal use for optimum sturdiness and reliability, avoid
subjecting it to strong physical shocks (such as dropping or
hitting it). Since the MU5 is a precision-made electronic device,
also avoid applying excessive force to the various controls.
When moving the instrument, first unplug the power adaptor and
all other cables to prevent damage to cords and jacks. Always
unplug cables by gripping the plug firmly, not by pulling on the
cable.
7
CLEAN WITH A SOFT, DRY CLOTH
Never use solvents such as benzine or thinner to clean the instru-
ment, since these will damage the cabinet finish or dull the keys.
Wipe clean with a soft, dry cloth. If necessary, use a soft, clean,
slightly moistened cloth making sure to wipe the case off
again with a dry cloth.
ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE
Avoid using the unit near televisions, radios or other equipment
generating electromagnetic fields. Proximity to such equipment
may cause the unit to malfunction, and may generate interference
noise in the other appliance as well.
DO NOT OPEN THE CASE OR TRY REPAIRING
THE INSTRUMENT YOURSELF
The instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. Never open
the case or tamper with the internal circuitry in any way, since
doing so may result in damage to the instrument. Refer all
servicing to qualified Yamaha service personnel.
MIDI CABLES
When connecting the instrument to other MIDI equipment, be
sure to use only high-quality cables made especially for MIDI
data transmission. Also, avoid using cables longer than 15
meters, since long cables can result in data errors.
Yamaha is not responsible for damage caused by improper handling or
operation.

The MU5 — What It Is and What It Can Do
What It Is...
The MU5 is a compact, highly portable and easy-to-use tone generator. It
features full General MIDI Level 1 compatibility with 128 General MIDI
Voices and 8 drum kits. The MU5 has 28-Voice polyphony and is 16-Part
multi-timbral. In other words, the MU5 has 16 different Parts, each with its
own Voice, so that up to 16 different Voices can be sounded simultaneously.
With the built-in two-octave keyboard, you can play any of the Voices directly
from the MU5 itself. Or you can play them from a connected MIDI keyboard.
In addition, the MU5 also has a TO HOST terminal for easy interfacing with a
computer, allowing you to play the Voices using your favorite music software.
This is where the advanced multi-timbral capabilities come in, letting you play
up to 16 different Voices at the same time.
About General MIDI
General MIDI is a new addition to the worldwide MIDI standard. MIDI, as
you know, stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, and makes it
possible for various electronic musical instruments and other devices to
communicate with each other. For example, by connecting a sequencer to
the MU5s MIDI IN terminal, you could play back a song on the sequencer
using the Voices of the MU5.
So, where does General MIDI fit in all of this? One of the most important
features of General MIDI is in the standardization of Voices. This means that
a song recorded in the General MIDI format can be played back on any Gen-
eral MIDI compatible tone generator and sound just as the composer intended.
For example, if there is an alto sax solo in the song, it will be played by an alto
sax Voice on the General MIDI tone generator (and not by a tuba or harpsi-
chord!). Since the MU5 is fully compatible with General MIDI, you can take
advantage of the vast wealth of musical material recorded in that format.
The MU5 — What It Is and What It Can Do
12
What It Can Do...
Here are a few ideas on how you can use the MU5. The list below is not
comprehensive, but is meant to be a general guide to the possibilities and
provide a starting point or springboard for your own creative ideas and explo-
rations.
Using With MIDI Keyboard
Use the MU5 as supplementary tone generator with your MIDI
keyboard and play the Voices of both instruments in a layer
together. Or, if your keyboard has the capability, program a
split so that the notes you play on the right side of the keyboard
play only the Voices of the MU5.
Using With Other MIDI Controllers
Even if youre not a keyboard player, you can still play the MU5
with other types of MIDI controllers. For example, you can use a
MIDI percussion controller to play the drum and percussion
sounds of the MU5.
When Connected to a Computer or
Sequencer
Home Studio Setup
The MU5 integrates easily into any existing setup. If you have a
MIDI keyboard, computer and sequencing software, the MU5
with its high-quality Voices and multi-timbral capabilities can
expand your home studio system.
Carry It With You
If you have a laptop computer (and sequencing software), simply
connect the MU5, plug in some headphones and youve got a
complete music making system thats ready to go wherever you
go. Use it for composing, arranging, practicing or making/
playing demos for your band.
13
Perform With It
Bring it with you to a gig as long as theres a MIDI keyboard
on stage, you can use the high-quality sounds of MU5 in your
performance.
Multimedia
Since its portable and compatible with General MIDI, the MU5
is a natural for multimedia applications. Bring it with you to a
presentation since the computer interface is built-in to the
MU5, it hooks up instantly and easily to the computers serial
port or printer port, without the need for any other equipment.
About the Modes of the MU5
The MU5 has three operating modes: Play, Utility and Part Edit.
(Utility and Part Edit are the two edit-related modes of the MU5.)
Play Mode
This is the normal mode of the MU5, the one in which you
normally play and select the internal Voices (either from the
built-in keyboard or a connected MIDI device), select Parts, and
use the Mute and Solo functions.
Utility Mode
The Utility mode lets you set functions related to the overall
operation of the MU5, such as Master Tune, Transpose and
Velocity settings. Included also are utility operations, such as
sending bulk data to a data storage device, and initializing of the
MU5 settings.
Part Edit Mode
The Part Edit mode allows you to change certain settings for each
