Transposing the Pitch of the Keyboard
The TRANSPOSE [-]/[+] buttons transpose the overall pitch of the instrument (the
keyboard sound, Style playback, Song playback, and so on) in semitone steps. Press
the [+] and [-] buttons simultaneously to instantly reset the transpose value to 0.
Default Pitch setting
By default, the reference pitch of the entire instrument is set to 440.0 Hz, and the
scale to equal temperament. You can change the pitch and scale from [FUNC-
TION] → [A] MASTER TUNE/SCALE TUNE.
You can also adjust the pitch for each part (keyboard parts, Style parts and Song
parts) on the TUNE page of the Mixing Console display (page 88).
For details, refer to the Reference Manual on the website.
