oops - is it true that there is no way to tune the device ?
Wanted to play to my old grand piano , that is tuned at ca.430 Hz , and could'nt find any function to set the tuning on reface.

Hey Helfried,

this can only be done via MIDI through SyxEx. Please, see the reface Data List. 😉

thank you for your reply,
this is very strange - the reface is getting a firmware update with quantization for the looper - but an essential like master tune is left out !
IMHO this is a big fail for a 500$ synth.
Maybe there is a chance that it will be added in a firmware update ?

a possible workaround would be to set the pitch bend lever to 1 halftone step and tape it at the correct postion 😉

Yamaha (NOT BadMister!),

This is without a doubt the dumbest thing I have ever heard of- what happened to the great Yamaha synthesizer company? There is NO EXCUSE for a $799.00 piece of "gear" to not have this function built-in! BAD DESIGN- Yamaha you need to beg forgiveness and re-hire the engineers that created and designed the SY-77, EX5, & VL1 synths- those guys KNEW what they were doing and would have never overlooked something so basic........SMH......
