Pitch Bend problem

Hi all
I’ve Imported a midi file of a violin part into C7 which halionsonic has has come up with a nice patch.However this midi file has pitch bend data which should bend the note up + 3 semitones…After changing the pitch bend range in halionsonic fron -2/+2 to -3/+3 the midi file is still playing -2/+2 This is also happening in realtime using the pitchbend on my keyboard.Has anyone experienced this or am I missing something?
Any help appreciated
