Octave/Transpose

The Octave/Transpose button and screen permit you to quickly change the playing octave or transposition.

Press the Octave/Transpose button and the lights will change to the following:

There are 3 horizontal bars in the center, adjacent to the printed text "Octave", "Transpose PItch" and "Transpose Lights". Slide your finger on one of the bars to adjust its value. The 3 settings are:

1) OCTAVE
Press this row to shift the octave up or down. Range is -5 to +5 octaves.

2) TRANSPOSE PITCH
Press a cell in this row to transpose the output pitch. The range is +/- 7 semitones. After this screen is exited, the OCTAVE/TRANSPOSE button remains green for positive transpositions and red for negative transpositions, to remind you that the transposition is active.

3) TRANSPOSE LIGHTS
Press a cell in this row to shift the position of the note indicator lights left or right. The range is +/- 7 semitones. For example, to move the lowest ā€œCā€ note into the lower left corner cell, select a transposition of -6.

These settings are different for the left and right keyboard splits, selected in the upper right corner:
If LEFT is selected, the left split's settings are shown, and in the left split's Main and Accent colors.
If RIGHT is selected, the right split's settings are shown, and in the right split's Main and Accent colors.
If you press both LEFT and RIGHT together, you can view and change the settings for both splits simultaneously. If the settings are different, the indicator bars will show the left and right split's Main colors overlapping.

Also, when Split mode is off, the split selected here (or in the Per-Split Settings, Preset or Volume screens) will play from the entire touch surface.

When you turn off the Octave/Transpose button off, all notes assigned to middle C (note number 60) will blink briefly, to indicate you the selected octave transposition.
