Pitch Control

Pitch control makes it possible to tune the YDP-88 over a 50-cent range (approximate) in
approximately 1.6-cent intervals. A hundred "cents" equals one semitone, so the tuning range
provided allows fine tuning of overall pitch over a range of approximately a semitone. Pitch
control is useful for tuning the YDP-88 to match other instruments or recorded music.
