Correct. I just did and works for a single altered note. However, I have many more of these to do for several other notes and few other instruments in my composition. If I want to do it this way, it seems quite tedius. Two new issues arises when I do it this way,
Cubase allows us to do Pitch bend in two ways ( let me know if there are other ways please!)
In controller lane is between -8191 and 8191, So, to bend a quarter tone, bend it up and down 8191/4 = 2048. But now, it is hard in the controller lane of Key Editor drag the automation points exactly to 2048! I guess then only way would be to use list editor that has another issue! But again the pitch bend value range in list editor is not consistent with controller lane range.
The list editor only holds Data 1 and Data2 is dimmed. The range is from 0 to 16383 with middle = 8191 equal to no pitch bend. Thus to pitch bend ¼ up ( 1/4 sharp) set data1 in list editor to 10,239.38 or simply 10240. Likewise to bend 1/4 of a whole tone up, we need to set 6144.
This is quite a tedious job if you have hundreds of such notes. I assume since the pitch bend messages are not attached to notes, we cannot use note expressions here. Plus, any pitch bend modification should be done per channel basis.
Any workarounds to make this job easier would be greatly appreciated.
PS. I wish the Logic editor could hold variables. Otherwise, we could write a preset to bend a quarter tone upward, as follows to
for each note X with value equal F: # or selected F notes
# here we need the LE preset to hold two values a and b
let a and b be starting and ending time of X respectively:
issue a pitch blend value of 10239 at time a
issue a pitch bend value of 8191 at time b
