transposing intire instrument
« on: September 13, 2018, 04:37:59 PM »
As I'm playing I want to raise pitch of instrument up a half-step.  I press transpose button and go up 1 semi-tone but nothing happens.  What might I be missing?

I have the same problem on my 2100, Earl. I have to press the button 2 times before the keyboard reacts. There may be some settings that can fix the problem for us, someone will certainly chime in and help us :)

From what I remember when playing my 2100, the first push of the button brings it up on screen to show you where you are currently, and then the second push will then alter the pitch.
I am not sure if you can alter that setting though...

When I started playing my S950 a year and a half ago, I found that one push up or down already changed the pitch - and so I had to get use to that... :)!

Man. I feel a lot better now.  I was kind of embarrassed to ask the question but glad to see I'm not only one with the problem.  Going to go and check it out now.

It's interesting that the Tyros and Genos are different. A single press of a transpose button changes the key a semi-tone. And I prefer the PSR setup -- pressing it once brings up a screen telling me what transpose is, and then I can decide how much to change it (which is the way the tempo buttons operate).

Regardless, it's not a setting you can change on either instrument.

Bruce and Fred are correct. It is made to be this way. Checked it out on my 2100 just now. Thanks, guys😀

Hello Earl! Nothing happens before you press the chord again. If you keep pressing down the chord notes nothing will happen. Press transpose, lift hand from chord, press chord again. Them it will transpose.I struggle with this too. It is not dumbness, if someone is dumb, it is the heap of circuit boards we are trying to play :) :)

Hi ekurburski.

you may have to set the "Transpose Assign" on your PSR-3000/1500 correctly, before you can use the panel Transpose buttons:

Please call up the following screen:

[FUNCTION] --->  CONTROLLER ---> Tab KEYBOARD/PANEL ---> TRANSPOSE ASSIGN

If you select "KEYBOARD" there, the panel Transpose buttons will transpose the Keyboard parts, Style parts and Multipad parts (NOT the Song parts).

If you select "SONG", ONLY the Song (MIDI file) parts will be transposed by the panel buttons.

If you select "MASTER", the overall pitch of the PSR-3000/1500 is transposed. In the Mixing Console (Tab "TUNE") you can set "KEYBOARD" (KBD) and "SONG" to different transposition values, if needed.


Best regards,
Chris
