The pitch bend pot may have broken or the resistance element in it may have failed. It requires analysis internally. If the element breaks or the pot becomes disconnected someway, the pitch will go one way or the other to the limit and remain there.

How do i fix a Yamaha P95 that sounds Es with Fs and Bb with Bs across all the octaves?


Whether it happens to all of the key?
If yes, transpose setting may have changed. Change the setting to normal (0).
If the normal transpose, but tuning is still not standardized, check Pitch Setting.
To Restore Standard Pitch setting:
Hold down the A-1, B-1, C0 and C # 0 keys simultaneously and press any key between C3 and B3.

If the above procedure is still no effect, try resetting the factory settings / Initialize overall: :
This is the steps:
Initializing the Settings
When you initialize the settings, all backup data stored to this instrument will be initialized and reset to the factory default settings.
Turn off the power to the instrument. Then, simultaneously hold down the C7 key (right-most key on the keyboard) and turn the power on again.

NOTICE
Do not turn off the power to this instrument while it is initializing the data in its internal memory (that is, while the button indicators are flashing).

I have my sound banks layered. My first bank is piano on top and acoustic bass on the bottom. Last night it started to detune. When I hit the C key, the piano would play a C, but the bass bottom layer...


Sound banks does not define what keyboard you might have... HOWEVER... THINGS TO CHECK: Check if the bass MIGHT have a transpose set by mistake. Also check if pitch bend might be active... some keyboards can use a pitchbend pedal... We can't guess what brand or model keyboard you have. Batteries are NOT anything that would cause this. Remember that on a keyboard there is a LIMIT to the number of sound generators that are available and you can run out of polyphony with mass layering. The last thing might be any "effects" you have activated. It sounds like you can split this keyboard so separate transpose MAY be possible that low end is transposed while upper is not...

Why is my new EWI4000s must transpose to D to get the normal C key? When I turn off and TRANS BUTTON, the key is B.


Two things to check... check that the "tuning" is set to A440 as the adjustment range would reach a one note offset... Next check that the glide plate has not bent the pitch to the next note... If you are using MIDI, make sure the external device is not transposed on receive.

The use of the Transposer control. I am very much a beginner in music in spite of my advanced years, and I have been puzzling over how to use this control. Would I be correct that all I need do is to...


A SIMPLE way of looking at the transposer is that it shifts EVERY key on the keyboard left (+) or right (-) by the number of the transpose. ALL keys, black and white are counted. As far as counting sharps and flats I would NOT depend on that. The transpose would for instance allow you to play a song you knew in "C" and have the sounds moved to a different key. For instance, a transpose of +2 would move EVERY C to "sounding" D, C# to D#, D# to F, E to F#, F to G, F# to G#, G to A, G# to A#, A to B, A# to C, and finally B would sound C# pitch. Given a key like G for a song that has one sharp (F#) to play this by keying it in the key of "C" you would use a transpose of +6 or minus 6. The number of key positions (including black) between the key you want to play in and the key the song is in. For a song in D that is played in C you would use either a +2 transpose or a -10 depending on whether you wanted the higher or lower octave to sound. Looking at it this way I do NOT believe the method you proposed would work... Look at it the way I described and you won't go wrong.

HI, I have a Roland Juno GI, (5 months old), have not programmed anything into it or changed any settings. However, when I started it today it was flat by 50 cents. I was sure of this by checking a D or G...


It sounds like it is transposed. Look for the transpose function in your user manual. It shifts the keys by half notes either up or down. I would be surprised that factory reset would not clear the transpose setting. First, realize that these keyboards are controlled by a crystal oscillator and they just don't drift enough to shift even one cent worth.

IF the unit is NOT transposed, then the other problem is LIKELY with the pitch bend wheel. Try the action of the wheel and make sure it responds by moving up and down about 50 cents. If it doesn't go both ways, it is possible the mechanism has slipped or been damaged.

Pitch bender failure.


That is NOT a very descriptive problem statement... If all notes are off pitch but the bender still varies the tone, read about "transpose" in your user manual. Often the transpose or even the A440 setting gets changed and synth will be off pitch. If the pitch bender causes NO change then the control may have a failure.

Got a Roland GW-8. I've had it for almost a year and a half. The problems consists on the fact that the keyboard gets out of tune while playing. Its not even a full note. After that I have to shut it...


OK... It is literally impossible for the unit to "go out of tune" as it is crytal controlled... HOWEVER what is probablly happening is the PITCH BENDER is getting into the mix somehow.
If the centering on the pitch bend control is sticking or is loose, this would likely be the problem.
Do some tests with the pitch bender to see if you can detect either a mechanical or offset condition of the control.

Keyboard seems to be stuck in key of D How do I get it back to C ?


On page 105 of your X5D manual, read up about "transpose". Setting the transpose shifts the notes plus or minus from the normal.

If you don't have a manual, you can download one for free.
