Yes, I was aware of your page on this. And thank you for adding my humble contribution to it. I was about to write you a note about this possibly missing info.
Although since I use a frequency meter, the service manual from Korg was clear enough for me.
I just use A4 and A1, instead of A#4 and A#1. (easier numbers to work with: 440hz, 55hz, 3520hz)
My own procedure is quite simple, and follows a path similar to the Korg manual. And for those of you who would rather use a frequency meter than a tuner, here it is in 8 easy steps (well 32 to be exact):
Transpose switch to NORMAL. (A voltage of exactly +5.250 V must be confirmed at the right side of R8 in the KLM356 CV1 output before continuing).
1-Octave switch to 16'
2-Play A4, adjust vr102 to read 440hz
3-Play A1, adjust vr103 to read 55hz
4-Repeat steps 2 and 3 until values displayed are EXACT.
5-Octave switch to 2'
6-Play A1, adjust vr101 to read 440hz
7-Play A4, adjust vr104 to read 3520hz
8-Repeat steps 6 and 7 until values displayed are EXACT.
Repeat steps 1 to 8 for VCO 2-4 with their corresponding VRs.
Note: you can tolerate a +/- 0.2 hz value fluctuation to account for analog drift.
