The Concertmate-500 has four Envelope Pitch mixing circuits. The circuits generate melody, obbligato, chord and bass sounds by means of a mixing envelope and pitch signals from the CPU. At NORMAL mode, all of the four circuits generate melody signal, while they create melody, obbligato, chord, and bass sounds individually at the other modes. Note The waveforms are only for understanding the principle of the above circuit. The actual waveforms differ from the figure. The pitch signal PS from the...

On NORMAL mode, all Envelope Pitch mixing circuits generate melody signals, and the signals pass through the melody filter. When the mode switch is at the other position, each Envelope Pitch circuit creates different sound signals. These signals pass through corresponding filters. The percussion signal comes out from the CPU directly, wherever the mode switch position is set. As the signal is a stepped waveform, the percussion filter shapes it.

Info

As shown in Fig. 4, the circuit provides sampling signals to pin 100 Vin terminal of the CPU. By divider circuit of 2 pes of 100kohm resistors, the sampling signal is biased on 2.5V. When the sampling sound level exceeds 0.315V as shown Fig. 5, the CPU starts to transmit the sampling sound data to the RAMs during the following time. Sampling Data Bit (bit) x Sampling Frequency (kHz) 108.544 (Kbit) 8 (bit) x 9.387 (kHz) 1.4454 Sec. 1.4 Sec. While sampling, the CPU doesn't output key common...

The power supply circuit has a voltage regulator and an APO (Auto Power Off) circuit. When power is ON and at the normal operation, the APO signal from the CPU keeps H level. Transistors T4 and T8 turn on, so that voltages VH, VL1, VL2 and VE are provided to the circuits. When the keyboard is not operated for seven minutes, the APO signal becomes L level. Transistors T4 T8 turn off causing the voltages to shut off. Voltages VA (5V) and VDD1 (ground) are always provided to the CPU even at the...
