Keyboard Changed Octaves - Need to change back

Unread post by Theophilus » Wed Jan 29, 2020 5:00 am

After about 14 years sitting in my garage, I finally pulled out and dusted off my old EX5, plugged it in and turned it on and it fired up nicely. HOWEVER, I put my music notebook on top of it and opened it up. The cover hit a bunch of buttons and now middle C is two octaves lower and I cannot figure out how to change it back. Can anyone give me some directions? I am perusing the manual but its been so long much of the terminology isn't syncing. :confusion-confused:

You have two octave shift buttons by the mod wheels. Try selecting those to shift it back.

There is also a global transpose setting in the utility mode that is worth checking.
