Setting Various Items For Performances
Changing the Touch
You can specify the degree of Touch Sensitivity
(how the sound responds to your playing strength).
Fixed: The volume level does not change at all regardless of
whether you play the keyboard soft or hard.
Soft: The volume level does not change much when you play
the keyboard soft or hard.
Medium: This is the standard piano touch response (default
Hard: The volume level changes very widely from pianissimo
to fortissimo to facilitate dynamic and dramatic expression. You
have to hit the keys hard to produce a loud sound.
You can shift or transpose the pitch of the entire
keyboard up or down in semitones.
For example, if you set the transpose to “+5,” the
key C will produce the pitch F. You could, therefore,
play a song as if it was in C major and the digital
piano would transpose it to the key of F major.
Setting range: -6 (F
#4) – 0 (C5) – +6 (F#5)
#4 – B4
Transposes the pitch down (to play lower notes than the actual
Restores the original pitch (0).
#5 – F#5
Transposes the pitch up (to play higher notes than the actual
Fine-tuning the Pitch
Using the Tuning setting, you can fine tune the
pitch of the entire instrument. This can be
extremely useful when playing your digital piano
along with other instruments or recorded music.
Setting range: 414.8 – 440.0 – 466.8 Hz
Resets the pitch to the default (A3 = 440.0 Hz).
Sets the pitch to A3 = 442.0 Hz.
Lowers the pitch in approximately 0.2 Hz increments (-0.2 Hz).
Raises the pitch in approximately 0.2 Hz increments (+0.2 Hz).
• Touch Sensitivity cannot be used for jazz organ,
pipe organ, rock organ, or harpsichord voices.
Setting the Reverb
Using the digital piano’s Reverb function, you can
add reverberation similar to that of a concert hall to
individual Voices. Whenever you select a Voice, the
most suitable reverb will be automatically set; how-
ever, you can freely set the Reverb Type as
Recital Hall: Simulates the clear reverb sound you would hear
in a medium-sized concert hall for piano recitals.
Concert Hall: Simulates the gorgeous reverb sound you
would hear in a large concert hall for orchestral performances
Chamber: Suitable for playing chamber music; simulates the
intimate reverb sound you would hear in a spacious room,
such as for classical music recitals.
Club: Simulates the vivid reverb sound you would hear in a
live music venue or a jazz club.
Off: No effect is applied.
