(Forum just glitched and ate my post as I was submitting it... take 2)
I have two files with pitch bend on the percussion channel, a single bend of -8192.
One file was created, then the second file is a merge of the original with two additional tracks using Anvil Studio.
As far as I can tell, all of the important MIDI commands are the same, including timing. The only differences are some "sequencer specific" items that Anvil Studio inserts, which should not affect the final playback.
However, in one file (rain4, the merged file) the cymbal at the beginning plays back properly pitch bent.
In the other file (mod3, the original file) it plays at the default pitch.
I am puzzled as to why this is happening and how to fix it. It is occurring with every player I have tried.
See (hear) attached.
