Hi folks, I'm trying to get VOPM to pitch bend a full octave in Ableton and have read the manual but can't seem to increase from the default range of 2 semitones ? any help is welcome you genius' !

P.S - I read the VOPM manual and successfully sent CC's to get the cool LFO delay but cannot get the pitchbend range increased

Unless you've got a very special reason, just switch over to FMDrive. It's a far better emulation of the Sega Genesis sound chip, and can also do all the LFO'S found on the YM2151 arcade chip.

FM Drive is a VSTi that has built in pitch bending functionality. You should definitely be able to go beyond an octave with ease. Check it out:

Hi yes I bought FM Drive a while back but I have found that VOPM sounds better which is odd as I know it's a YM2151 emu, the same bank of instruments imported into FM drive sounds not nearly as good as when in VOPM

Do you have ableton suite? opfour sounds really great and comes with it:

Not nearly as good? What are you meaning? In what way, specifically?

Got it sorted - Midi CC's 100 = 0  & 101 = 0  then CC#6 = 1-96  to increase pitch bend range !!
