DGX-660: A key in a style playing wrong...

I have been studying, practicing, watching Youtube vids etc. to learn how to use this keyboard. And of course taking lessons at PGS. I am new to the keyboard and piano.

I am finding that occasionally when I am using a style, one of the keys doesn't work right at first hit. I can replicate the issue, and have it in the linked video below.

The off tone happens at ~ 29 seconds into the 37 second video. Playing Lean on Me. At the bottom of the video, left thumb is hitting C. I put the 30+ seconds there to provide more sound context. You will hear me hitting that C and it sounding fine, but then at the 29 seconds point, it sounds off. I hit it again almost immediately after the off tone, and it sounds fine.

Is anyone else experiencing anything like this? I have experienced it in other playing, but had written it off to my learning curve. I was wondering if I was hitting the wrong key, maybe D or something, so I made this recording to validate that I was not hitting the wrong key.

I plan to call Yamaha support and see if they can give me any thoughts. My first call...I don't know how good their tech support is.

Hope to hear if this is happening to anyone else, of if maybe this is a problem with my keyboard.

Thanks in advance!

It's a timing related issue and auto-accompaniments have trouble with chord changes at "unexpected" places.

Here the "band" has already decided how they are going to play to the end of the bar (or "measure") and they ignore your last minute change of mind as the bass player refuses to change the note he already played and the pianist refuses to change the chord he already played.

Or something like that. Or I'm wrong. It would be quite hard to keep repeating the video and really analyze what happens.

Such harmonic glitches are sometimes seen when digital piano sales folks who don't really use auto-accompaniments are required the demo the feature on a digital piano. You need some understanding and timing sensitivity to play nicely with auto-accompaniment.

I'd also take a look at the "metronome light" that blinks in red and green.

You have a basic ONE-two-three-four rhytm and the ONE is indicated by the red light and the other beats are counted with a green light.

Wherever the melody is at the start of a bar (or "measure") i.e. at "ONE" the light should be red. If not, you are not in sync with the accompaniment pattern.
