pitch bend as midi effect.

    Jan 03 2011 | 12:41 pm
    is there a way to make a pitch bend effect into a midi effect that i can use on a fader rather than from a midi keyboard?
    i realise there is the pitch effect in ableton, but from what i gather that moves between pitch in increments rather than bends or microtones...
    thanks ned.

      should be fairly easy with the standard m4l midi effect device and [bendout] (or [xbendout] or [xbendout2])

      thanks. i'll look into that. do you know how it will behave with abletons scale plugin?

      scale is changing the midinotes, the objects I mentioned send pitchbend data, so they are independent. How the pitchbend data is used depends on the settings of your sampler/synth (and sometimes its even a setting of the preset of that sampler/synth).
