Author Topic: E373 Are better ways to quickly access specific functions (Octave , Transpose)  (Read 81 times)

 My eyes don't see very well. Often I would switch between the 2 (and a few other functions) but having to press through the same button 61 times can be quite frustrating especially if I miss it by accident. Not to mention I'm afraid of the wear and tear on the button .

Is there a better way to do this?

Welcome to the PSR Tutorial Forum, Aktivate!

According to the notes on page 52 in the E373 Owner's Manual, you can also decrease or increase the Function numbers by holding down the FUNCTION button while briefly pressing one of the [-/NO] or [+/YES] buttons.

Also try holding down the relevant [-/NO] or [+/YES] button a little longer. You may be able to quickly scroll through the Functions this way. (However, the latter is not mentioned in the manual.)

Hope this helps!

Never put the manual too far away: There's more in it than you think! ;-)

Actually, at the bottom of page 15, the manual does state that holding down the [+/YES] and [-/NO] buttons provides continuous increasing or decreasing.  [** EDIT **] I just realized that this is only for increasing or decreasing the values of the selected function parameter, not the function number itself -- You'll have to experiment to see if holding the Function button, along with holding down the [+/YES] or [-/NO] provides rapid function number change -- my guess is that it does not.]

Additionally, you can hold down the button for a relevant category that has a dedicated button on the panel, like dual voice, or split voice, for example.  That will get you right to that specific function, and then if it's like the E400 series, you should only have to tap the Function button a few times from there to get to other parameters for that function.

For example, if you hold down the dual voice button, you'll get the voice number selection for dual voice.  But then tapping the Function button from there should quickly get you to things like dual voice volume, dual voice octave, and dual voice chorus depth.  And as Chris stated, if you go too far, the manual says that holding down the Function button while tapping the [-/NO] button will allow you to go back one step in the function list.

Hopefully, this helps with more easily navigating to different parts of the function list.  Please let us know if you have any other questions!
