Yamaha MP-1 (1982) First and only keyboard with score plotter? [Vintage]

Remember electronics manuals from that decade? They weren’t the slick affairs you get now. This one in particular was printed in four columns (English, German, French and Italian). I’m not sure if someone at Yamaha scanned it in or if some of the pages were always printed wonky…

Anyway, what first caught my eye was the huge roll of ticker-tape coming out of the right hand side of the keyboard, pictured on the front cover. Is this some kind of till or adding machine as well?

I must admit, it didn’t cross my mind (until I read the second opening paragraph) that it was a music score printer. To be more accurate, it’s a music score plotter. If I hadn’t seen the photos and heard people testify to its existence (and operability) I’d almost have thought it was an April Fool joke.

Printers may have been fairly rudimentary in the early ’80s, but you can forget a mini dot matrix or daisywheel printer (can you imagine?) – this one you had to fit your own biro in!
