I assume RPN 0 still sets the channel pitch bend range, just like it did in MIDI 1.
But what about the range for MIDI 2 per-note pitch bend? Can it be different from the channel pitch bend range?

MPE typically uses +/-2 semitones for the channel and +/-48 semitones for the notes. Moving from MPE to MIDI 2 or vice versa would be challenging if this can't be done in MIDI 2.

The MIDI Manufacturers Association is currently in the process of writing a specification for an RPN (or similar) to set the Sensitivity (range) of Per-Note Pitch Bend.

Great, that would solve the problem :-)

Any news on this?

AU plugins support the MIDI 2.0 protocol since last fall (macOS and iOS). CLAP plugins support it too.

There's a need for:
- an RPN for per-note pitch bend range, similar to RPN 0.
- a default value for the per-note pitch bend range. MPE defaults to 48 semitones, it would make sense to copy that.

IMHO the MMA should specify this before people invent their own specs.
