• You can also use the style
files provided on the sup-
plied CD-ROM (page 102).
• The “Serenade” style in the
Waltz category and all styles
in the Pianist category have
no rhythm part and therefore

press the [START/STOP]
button, and the accompani-
ment bass and chord parts
will begin playing when you
