I have posted this before a couple of times, and even sent midi files and mp3's to people showing them how it's supposed to be working, but I have never got an answer. I might just give up using the internal vocalizer and switch to a TC helicon or something.
Wat the hell though. I'll give it one more shot and see if anyone thinks they have the know how to expain this problem.
I have just given up actually because even the so called "experts" at the store couldn't help me.
I'm going to spell this out as clearly as i can, and please don't think I'm trying to be patronizing, I just want to be certain everyone gets exactly what I'm saying. I would REALLY love to solve this problem:
Ok, does everyone understand what the "pitch bend" function is supposed to do?
According to the manual, it will allow the voice to slide up or down whatever type of setting you give it, as in a half-tone (semi-tone) or a full tone. Same function that happens with a guitar or sax when you use the wheel.
My old vocalizer (Korg IH) worked perfectly in that regard. I have many midi files that have vocalizer tracks already laid out and work fine in all regards EXCEPT the pitch bend.
It simply doesn't work.
It doesn't matter if it's a semi-tone or a full tone, it sounds more like it's trying to do the wha wha on it and even if it does settle on a note, it's not the correct one. Lets say I'm singing a middle C and the pitch bend is supposed to slide the note down from an A to a G and then up to Bb and holding there. It will sound like it's sliding the G note down a full octave, and then shoot it up to a high D. Ironically if I switch the vocalizer track to an instrument like a guitar, it works perfectly.
I have a song relatively similar to the description above. Anyone who knows the Linda Ronstadt song "When will I be loved" will hear at the very end of the song a harmony line that goes up and down and around and finally ends on one note while the lead singer simply holds a single tone. Works FINE on my IH.
so can ANYONE possibly explain to me what the hell is wrong with this thing? And by the way, yes the pitch bend has been turned off AND on, and the modulation has been too, and in various combinations. I tried everything to resolve it and have had no luck. It simply doesn't make any sense.
