Re: Yamaha RX5 midi program change problem

... that means it uses program change to change the pitch in some way, and not the actual pattern/song number? Program change message doesn't change the pitch, it selects a voice in 'Tunable Note Mode'. ... But below that it does say Song Sel 0-19 recognized...idk, I just can't figure out how to ge...
