How can I extend the range of the pitch bend wheel to cover more notes. Actually octaves. Or is there a better way to bend a note down a couple of octaves?

AWM2 (Sampled) Part:

FM-X Part:

See "Pitch Bend" with down arrow and up arrow. Normally -2 for down and +2 for up. The units here are in semi-tones (half steps). "2" meaning one full step in each direction. If you want the down bend to range 2 octaves, change "Pitch Bend (down arrow)" to -24.

The reference manual shows the limits of range (applies to FM-X, AWM2, and drums):

Pitch Bend ^ / v (Pitch Bend Range Upper/Lower)
Determines the maximum Pitch Bend Range in semitones.
Settings: -48 – +0 – +24
