Pitch Bend lever range

Postby Kita » 22:55, 27 June 2016

Hi All from a newbie to this Forum.
I apologise if this question has already been asked but I have trawled this forum and the FA06 manual and am unsure of what to do.I would like to record as a sample a chord change from A Major triad bending up to D Major triad. I have attempted this using the pitch bend lever starting with the A chord,then moving the lever smoothly to the right.The problem is that the pitch is too high when fully over to the right.
Is it possible to adjust the pitch bend range so that the finished chord is a D instead of an octave higher A ?
If so is it easy to do ? Bit of a technophobe you see !!
Many Thanks.

I think what you're looking for is hidden in the parameter guide (pg. 11 ) - "Bend Range"

Bend Range is defined at the Studio Set level, on the "Pitch" tab. It's defined in semitones, so you should be able to set it to +4 or whatever you want/need.

Thanks Very Much J.
You were spot on. I can't believe I overlooked this so many times - Doh !!

Just had this problem myself so thanks to the contributors on this question!

I also found that you can edit the pitch bend range at the tone level by choosing PRO EDIT (instead of zoom edit) on the Pitch tab screen. Scroll down to the last parameters and you'll send pitch bend range.

Rock on!
