  4. You might also take a look at the QUICK START option. If you turn this ON, when you power on your keyboard, IF there is a floppy disk in the keyboard and IF there is a MIDI song on that floppy disk, it will start playing.

Using Quick Start

The Song Setting page also has an option called QUICK START, which can be set ON or OFF. Whatever you set it to, this setting, like that for SONG CHAIN PLAY, remains set even if you turn power to your keyboard off. It stays at whatever you set it until you change that setting. The QUICK START feature will automatically start playing the first song (alphabetically) on the floppy disk in the keyboard.

Note that if you DO NOT want your keyboard to start up with the HEARBEAT style, you can use this option to start with a different style of your own choosing. Simply record a short song (one measure or even one beat will do) using the style you want to start up with. Save this song to a "startup" floppy disk and name it so that it is the first song (alphabetically) on the disk. Turn the QUICK START option ON. Now, when you power on your keyboard, it will immediately start playing this song which will set the keyboard to whatever style is in that song. The song will end quickly and your keyboard will be left set at the style used by that song.
