When using the shift arrows, placed left and right of the number boxes, I find it helpful to imagine harmonic space moving through the tuning vine. The vine itself stays static, but the pitches of the nodes reflect the shifts that have taken place.

The shift feature allows the user virtually unlimited exploration of Just Intonation up to prime number 23, whilst enabling pitches to be simultaneously sounded between 20 and 20 000 Hz. 

NB the 'shift' arrows were originally referred to as 'transposition' arrows. This proved confusing as it implied that the pitches were thereby transposed up and down, whereas only their position within the lattice is changed. 'Shift' reflects this changing position without implying that any change in the sounds themselves.
