Transposing the Pitch in Semitones

You can shift the pitch of the entire keyboard up or down in semitones in order to facilitate playing in
difficult key signatures, or to easily match the pitch of the keyboard to the range of a singer or other
instruments. For example, if "+5" is selected, playing key C produces pitch F, letting you play a song of F
major as though it were in C major.
To transpose the pitch down:
While holding down [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE], press a key
between F♯2 (-6) and B2 (-1).
To transpose the pitch up:
While holding down [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE], press a key
between C♯3 (+1) and F♯3 (+6).
To restore the normal pitch:
While holding down [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE], press the C3 key.

Fine-tuning the Pitch

You can fine-tune the pitch of the entire instrument in about 0.2 Hz steps. This lets you match the keyboard
pitch finely to that of other instruments or CD music.
To tune up (in about 0.2 Hz steps):
Press and hold down the [DEMO/SONG] and
[PIANO/VOICE] simultaneously, and press [+R].
To tune down (in about 0.2 Hz steps):
Press and hold down the [DEMO/SONG] and
[PIANO/VOICE] simultaneously, and press [–L].
To set the pitch to 442.0 Hz:
Press and hold down the [DEMO/
SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE]
simultaneously, and press the A0 key.
To restore default pitch:
Press and hold down the [DEMO/SONG]
and [PIANO/VOICE] simultaneously, and
press [+R] and [–L] simultaneously.
