    Hi,
    I am having troubles pitchbending more than a couple of notes...
    I use Cubase Sx... is there an option somewhere where i can change the pitchbending parameters.
    Muchos Gratios

    the control no. for Pitchbending is 38 u need to enter in that control and another "data control" and increase the data number to increase the pitchbend

    I know this may not make sense, but if u were using Logic Audio I could tell u exactly how to do it I dont know cubase:confused2

    Yuppers, you can also use RPNs, like so:

    ctrl 100 0x00 <-- RPN LSB (Least significant bit)
    ctrl 101 0x00 <-- RPN MSB (Most significant bit)
    ctrl 006 0x12 (for a one octave bend range) <-- Data Entry MSB

    I don't know Cubase SX, but if you've got an Event View, you should be able to add or edit events that look like the samples I gave above. If that doesn't help, maybe Merlin can shed some light on the situation.

    Pls explain

    Hey Zel, can you tell me what least and most signficant bit means? I'm getting an ancient Yamaha PSR 84 second hand which has a pitch bender on it, so I'm going to record this midi data into my XG sequencer (QY100). It would be good to tinker with the "bend" data once its been recorded. (I will see the data on the box as an event list, and I know the LSB and MSB parameters are there)

    Cheers alot, Ben

    Let me help you on this :

    You can refer to this table or even the manual for your sequencer on the midi implementation

    http://www.midi.org/about-midi/table3.shtml

    The LSB=0 and MSB=0 corresponds to the "Pitch Bend Sensitivity" control, and setting values to the data (006) controller, it changes the pitch by semitones.

    Are you wanting to change the range of your pitchbend or are you trying to bend notes next to each other?

    good question bobski but I think he means the range of the pitchbend

    yep, the midi command I tried to explain earlier is on the range of pitchbend.

    I'm using cakewalk here, and doing pitchbending is easy by "drawing" the parameters graphically with the mouse, but don't know much about cubase how it is done :(

    Thanks

    Hi, thanks for the link there bud.

    I'm sure it has all the basic info on single-note bending.

    By the way, if you get totally stuck Dr.M, I guess you could always move the note(s) that you don't want to be bent to another channel? But good luck doing it the proper way!
