Do you mean responding to some MIDI RPN message to set it from a controller or do you mean simply increasing the max +/- range on the back panel to 48 semitones? I presume you mean the latter, this is not really related to MPE specifically though (it would work with any MIDI controller).

I saw Yes at Wembley Arena in 1976 (Going For The One) and 1978 (Tormato), both when Wakeman was still with them, so am guessing I would have been in the presence of a MiniMoog (or two) without realising it at the time. Also, would Kraftwerk have been using them on the Computer World tour (1981)?

(...awaits someone with an equipment list for those tours to pipe up) :hihi:

I thought Wakeman left after Topographic Oceans in 73 ... Patrick Moraz was with them on the Relayer tour in 74.

Hi Richard,

There was some discussion here about allowing users to "Lock" certain parameters during preset changes to improve the MPE experience, namely: Pitch Bend Range, and the other MPE back panel settings. The lock functionality on the U-he synths work for just about any parameter, which is nice if you wanted to consider going that route, but an optional lock for [at least] the MPE features would be a very nice addition.

What's currently happening is I set my pithbend range and set Timbre to control filter cutoff and then change a preset and have to repeat that setup process, then change a process and repeat, and so on. Not ideal.

That’s correct, but Wakeman re-joined for Going For The One and Tormato. Moraz was only with them for Relayer.

I mean simply increasing the bend range to +/- 48 semitones. Although controllers can change their bend range and some DAWs allow custom bend ranges to be recorded, some others, like Bitwig, expect exactly the signals as per the mpe spec, which for pitch bend range is +/- 48. So if the synth only does +/- 24 for example then any recorded pitch bends would only pitch it half as much as intended. Like you’d pitch a note up a whole note in the midi data but hear a half note bend.

That’s why 48 is necessary for true mpe compatibility.

Agreed both with increasing the PB range and being able to lock parameters individually...
