Test your midi pitchbend range

Click here to play the midi loop to test the pitchbend range used on your playback equipment.

The track plays two consecutive notes:

On channel 1 it plays 

Note no. (056) = G#2 with +4096  pitchbend units.

On channel 2 it plays

Note no. (057) = A2 with 0 pitchbend units

If you hear them as the same pitch, your system is interpreting the midi pitchbend as 4096 units per semitone. If the pitch changes by one semitone (100 cents), then it is  being read or played without any pitchbend.

This is the system which has been used on all midifiles on the site.
