Report Changing the default pitchbend range in Independence? in Independence user forum Posted May 29 Hi rbhan. Yes you can change this value by typing in the pitch bend up/down fields you want. So +12 or -12 for an octave. I managed to find this out with sighted help after getting them to watch the posted video. I'm not sure if you can save this change as a default though, maybe it's on a patch by patch basis? Best Steve.
