Pitch

The Pitch function allows you to adjust the pitch for playback and recording. The pitch can be
adjusted approximately 6%. Normally, the Pitch function should be set to Fix, which means
the pitch is fixed for normal operation.
See Pitch on page 62 for some advanced applications of the Pitch function.
When normal pitch is selected, PITCH FIX is shown on the display. When variable pitch is
selected, PITCH VARI is shown.

Adjusting the Pitch

1. Press the [PITCH] button.
The display shows
2. Press the [®] SELECT button to select VARI.
VARI appears on the display.
3. Use the [–] and [+] DATA buttons to adjust the pitch.
To set the pitch to 0.0%, press the [CLEAR] button.
4. When you've finished, press the [PITCH] button.
Playback and recording is now performed at the specified pitch. To achieve the pitch change,
MD4 simply plays slower for pitch down and faster for pitch up. So if you record something at
a different pitch you'll have to play it at a different speed. Be aware of this.
Tip: When you've finished recording at a different pitch, remember to set the pitch back to
normal (i.e., Fix). Otherwise, you might record something at the wrong pitch by mistake.

Resetting the Pitch

1. Press the [PITCH] button.
2. Press the [√] SELECT button to select Fix.
FIX appears on the display.
3. Press the [PITCH] button.
Playback and recording is now performed at normal pitch.
