How to turn a Xpander in tune to an OB-X in tune????

Open the hood and blow cold air inside. That has a tremendous randomly
effect on the pitch of the VCOs!!! Better, take a modrouting and put alittle
or more amount(it depends how old the OB-X is) on the pitch of one
oscillator. BTW, you also can choose the key where both are in tune! 

What did we learn??? Neil should hack the software and build in a OB-X tune
option!!!!!! Neil, did you hear this?????
