    About stretched tuning The [PIANO 1/L] and [PIANO 2/M] sounds use stretched tuning. In order to obtain a more natural sound, stretched tuning tunes the lower notes slightly flatter and the higher notes slightly sharper than the equal tempered pitches. Acoustic pianos are normally tuned using stretched tuning.
