Mod wheel causing global tuning issue

Mod wheel causing global tuning issue
« on: April 19, 2017, 07:06:35 AM »
Hi
Just hoping someone has resolved this issue already and can assist. I have noticed that my X4 persistently stays slightly out of tune whenever I start using the mod wheel despite updating to the latest operating system OS and voice OS and also going through the global calibration in the global menu. Any similar problem like this or same issue someone has fixed?
Many thanks in advance

Al

What's your mod wheel assigned to in this case?

And would you be able to monitor MIDI data to see what the mod wheel is sending at any given time?

In addition to Chysn's suggestion, you might also want to calibrate your pitch/mod wheels. Here's the procedure:

Wheel Calibration Routine:

1. Turn the mod wheel all the way off (down) and also hold the pitch wheel in the down/off position. While holding the wheels, press and hold the Compare switch and press the Arpeggiator switch while holding.

2. Return the pitch wheel to center, press and hold the Compare switch and press Osc switch while holding.

3. Move the Mod wheel all the way on (up) and while also holding the pitch wheel all the way up/on position, hold the Compare switch and press the Sequencer switch while holding.
