Transmit MIDI pitch bend messages

Description

bendout allows you to send MIDI-pitch-bend values out to a specified device.

Arguments

Name Type Opt Description
a-z symbol opt Specifies the port for transmitting MIDI pitch bend messages. Channel numbers greater than 16 received in the right inlet will be wrapped around to stay within the 1-16 range. If there is no argument, bendout initially transmits out port a, on MIDI channel 1.
a-z and int list and int A letter and number combination (separated by a space) indicates a port and a specific MIDI channel on which to transmit pitch bend messages. Channel numbers greater than 16 will be wrapped around to stay within the 1-16 range.
(MIDI name) symbol opt The name of a MIDI output device may be used as the first argument to specify the port.
MIDI-channel int A number alone can be used in place of a letter and number combination. The exact meaning of the channel number argument depends on the channel offset specified for each port in the MIDI Setup dialog.
