Also regarding other changes I made I did quite a few characterisation changes around E2 to get a bit more evenness as well as a few octave tunings.
That's a good question, I am not sure if it somehow affects or not your European 1 setting. I would do a quick video with the values of the European 1 just in case.

From my knowledge, the only shared values are tuning HZ, ambience, brilliance. Everything which is done in piano designer it's individual to each sound. Teoretically, if you go to european v2 -> piano designer -> reset it should only affect European V2. I am going in 5 mins to test this on European 1 and I will let you know the outcome. I'll try to modify my european 1 setting, then reset to default, and check whether it defaulted my european 2 as well.
@Colin Miles, I went to piano designer and reset to default, and only European 1 settings were affected. So you are safe to reset your European V2 back to defaults without affecting your other sound.

More than that, tuning brilliance and other settings that you already have saved for all of them will remain unchanged even though you will reset your piano settings. My Brilliance and Ambience / tuning were the same after resetting the European V1.

Hi there Tudor33sud - thanks you must have been replying at the same that I was trying to post as mine didn't take. Yes - looks like we are safe to do a reset. In any case the Roland update site says as below, which is another way of doing it.


We recommend that you save your user data to a USB memory before you perform the update. If a problem occurs and your user data is lost, you will be able to restore the original state by reloading the data you saved. For details on the procedure, refer to the following sections of the Owner's Manual.

Initializing the Memory (Format Media)
* This formats the USB memory device.
Saving Piano Settings (Piano Setup Export)
Loading Piano Settings (Piano Setup Import)
Recording Your Keyboard Performance - Copying a recorded song

* Please be aware that "Ambience Type" is not saved to the USB memory device.

I would happily listen to your setting as well if you're willingly to share some samples. I'm curious about the output of your tuning and sound tweakings.

I haven't gotten around to doing any samples. Indeed I haven't even done any recordings on this piano since I go it in June. What I will do, when I get the chance/time, is to try exporting the settings as suggested and could maybe sent them via a pm. Like all sounds what suits you won't suit another and it also depends on the type of music you play. But do listen to the notes around E2 and see if you can hear what I heard regarding the character differences.

Hi there. I have an LX705. I have a lot of note character differences especially in the octave above middle C. (D, E flat, G, G sharp and B). They sound like they are coming from a different piano! I have adjusted the characteristics of these individual notes but am struggling to get a consistent sound especially across this octave. Any ideas?

Did you make any changes prior to this? You should try to reset to your default, and use your preferred european / european v2 grand. Maybe you ve gone too far with the customization and it s hard to make it back good. Youl could try using this thread using the different configurations that we shared here and let us know how that works out for you.

Thanks for replying. The character differences are there after a factory reset. Roland support haven't been much help - they suggest turning down the brilliance, closing the lid and turning up the key touch which muffles the bum notes but also muffles the whole piano sound

Personally, my best sound was lowering the touch to 45, add extra brilliance +8, a nice stone hall ambience +2, and that alone kinda does the trick. Also don't forget to change your tuning to 440hz , I found that also to be a very pleasing effect, thanks to ColinMiles suggestion. Other than that, I would suggest to only change the minimum amount of notes in order to be consistent and not mess up too much with the setting.
