Could anyone give me advice on using microtones whilst sending midi messages out of max. I've been fine with in max, using decimal points and and mtof to control synths patches, i.e. using 60 60.5 61 to get three ascending quarter tones, but I've been trying to send midi out to a VSL instruments player and standard midi messages only seem to recognise semitones, rounded integers only.
I tried using midiformat to convert the decimal part to a pitchbend message, but the pitchbend affects all notes currently playing - so if i send midi note 60 (C) and then midi note 60.5 (C quarter sharp) the first note (C or midi note 60) then also gets raised by quarter tone.
Can anyone think of a better way of doing this?
