Suddenly out of tune

Postby sara79 » 18 Jun 2017, 18:56

Hello, my name is Sara and i need help for my nord wave.
Today while i was playing my nord wave suddenly it went out of tune.
I didnt had this issue before.
I tried to fix it by using traspose function and it was ok for a while but in a minute o two
again out of tune.

Did someone of you know what i have to do or this means i have to look for technical assistance?
Thank you very much

Ciao Sara, I am afraid it may be a problem with the Pitch Bend lever; try to disable the Pitch Bend from your Program and see if it gets back in tune. If that is the case you will need to send your Wave for repair/replacement of the PB.

Hi Sara, Max is correct. It is not likely (really impossible, I think) for the System Menu Transpose function to suddenly shift by itself while playing. It is much more likely that this problem is coming from the pitch stick. Assuming that this is what's happening, it will be necessary to replace the pitch stick. For a temporary solution, you can disable the PB function as to each program. That's a lot of work for more than 1000 programs. If you are in an "emergency" situation and want to avoid editing all your programs, it is possible to disable the pitch stick entirely by opening the instrument and cutting the four wires coming from the pitch stick.

Thank you very much guys
yes it is
it is a problem with the pitch bend
when used it pitches but the key doesn't get back to the right one
and even if i use my keyboard without touching it after a while the key goes out of tune all alone.
Need a doctor!

i dont think i have the right skills to fix it all by myself, i will send to repair!

thank you Pablo and Max for your advice
