A 435 tuning

Hi all,

I have a 1990 Roland E30 synth and I love it, but it always sounded out-of-tune when playing along with recordings. Today I downloaded a spectrum analyser app and found out that A is actually 435 Hz, not the common 440 Hz.
Using the pitch bender I pitched it up slightly and playing along sounded way better, but of course it's not very accurate and I can only play with one hand. It was more of a proof-of-concept after all.

I want to fix this, tune it properly to 440 Hz, but the transpose option only allows for half-step transposition. Does anybody know of another way to tune it? Is there a nob on the inside, or a hidden setting, or should I make a nob myself? Where should I put it?

I'd love to hear your suggestions.

Most keyboards that I know of have some sort of tuning function for adjusting the frequency of Concert A, but they usually default to a tuning of 440Hz. I wonder if the E30's tuning had gotten changed at some time in the past? Did you buy it new or used?
