  A new feedback system is being developed at Diamond Light Source, applying a modulation to the position of the electron beam to keep the synchrotron X-ray beam fixed at the sample-point. Beamline detectors operating in the 100-1000Hz regime are becoming common, and the X-ray beam stability demanded by beamlines is thus of comparable bandwidths. In this paper we present a feedback system operating at these bandwidths, using a diagnostic instrument permanently installed in the X-ray beam path to measure the error in beam position at the sample point, and fast air-cored magnets to apply a small modulation to the electron beam to compensate. Four magnets are used to generate electron beam bumps through an ID straight. This modulation of the beam away from the nominal orbit is small, less than 10 microns, but should be sufficient to compensate for the bulk of the X-ray motion observed at the sample. It is small enough that the impact on the machine will be negligible. This system aims to maintain X-ray beam stability to within 3% of a beam size, at bandwidths of up to 500Hz.
