Playing Various Musical Instrument Sounds (Voices)

YDP-S34 Owner’s Manual
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.
You can fine-tune the pitch of the entire instrument in about 0.2 Hz steps. This lets you accurately match the
keyboard pitch to that of other instruments or CD music.
To tune up (in about 0.2 Hz steps):
Press and hold down [DEMO/SONG] and
[PIANO/VOICE] simultaneously, and press [+R].
To tune down (in about 0.2 Hz steps):
Press and hold down [DEMO/SONG] and
[PIANO/VOICE] simultaneously, and press [–L].
To set the pitch to 442.0 Hz:
Press and hold down [DEMO/SONG]
and [PIANO/VOICE] simultaneously,
and press the C#1 key.
To restore default pitch (440.0 Hz):
While simultaneously holding down [DEMO/
SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE], press [+R] and
[–L] simultaneously. Alternately, you can press
the C1 key while holding down [DEMO/
SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] simultaneously.
