Adding Variations to the Sound
(Reverb)
This instrument features several Reverb Types that

a realistic acoustic ambience. Although the appropri-
ate Reverb Type is called up automatically when you
select each of the Voices, you can change the Reverb
Type as desired.
To select a Reverb Type:
While holding down [GRAND PIANO/FUNCTION],
press one of the C5 – E5 keys.
