    Hi,
    How can I do a pitch bend of more than 2 semitones using my midi
    software? I need to do a 3 semitone bend and also some guitar whammy
    bar octave dives - 12 semitones.

    What do I need to tell my software? The maximum bend I can do is only
    2 semitones.

    I'm using Yamaha XG softsynth, Evolution Sound Studio Pro II and
    XGEdit 95.

    You can check out my first mp3.

    I'm quite pleased with it but the pitchbend stuff needs to be sorted.

    Thanks for any advice
    Chris

    It's a setting in the synth, not in the sequencer. If there is a
    Pitch Bend Range parameter in your synth patches, that's what you
    need. Sometimes, unfortunately, there isn't.

    RPN 0 will adjust pitch bend range on Roland GS and Yamaha XG
    compatible synths, among others.

    Using XGEdit, use the Controller panel, the box right next to the
    software wheel control which says "Modulation" by default. Change
    that box to Pitch Bend.

    Then, you can change the "pitch" knob below that to change the pitch
    bend range. You can also set amplitude and filter to change when you
    use the pitch bend, as well as LFO effects.
