Welcome, readers, to another installment of Rock Keyboards. This month I wanted to talk a little about using pitch and modulation wheels and to add expression to your keyboard playing. The look and function of these controls can differ slightly depending on what model of keyboard you have. The controls are usually located on the left side of the keyboard and can be seen as two separate wheels or, on some models, a joystick that controls both pitch and modulation functions. For our discussion, I'll explain using the two wheel system for simplicity.

The pitch wheel manipulates the pitch of the sound being played. The wheel or joystick usually rests in the middle position and raises or lowers the pitch an amount that can be specified in the program parameters depending on which direction the wheel is moved. On most keyboards, the wheel snaps back to the center position when released. This enables the player to achieve quick whammy bar like effects.
