I did a search for this question but failed to find anything.
When I use the Logical editor to insert a pitch bend value at a note, the upper half of the LE window has my selection criteria, and that works fine. But the lower half of the panel has this:
Action Target | Operation | Parameter 1 | Parameter 2
Type Set to fixed value Pitchbend
Value 1 Set to fixed value ??? 7 bit entry allowed and converted to a pitch name ???
So: is there a way to insert a specific pitch bend value that’s not in the range 1-127? Say 8040, for example?
I’m afraid only 7bit value is allowed.
Thanks for the answer, sad though it is. Would that be considered a bug? The LE creates an incorrect value for an inserted event.
In other words, should I create some kind of support request for this?
I would consider this as a bug. It is probably specified like this, and it never worked 14bit. So I would post it as a Feature Request.
I think pitch bend is expressed as a single byte in the MIDI code. The first bit is the status bit and the remaining 7 bits are the value. With only 7 bits, the value can not be more than 127.
You can use 7bit (one byte) or 14bit (two bytes) PitchBend.
The L.E. can indeed do 14 bytes.
This gets you 8192, or zero pitch bend.
Value 2 increments by 127 and you get the in-between values by changing value 1, so this gets you 8193:
And this, 16383 (maximum)
