Where are you putting this value in?
When I draw pitch bend into a midi controller lane (Piano roll editor with the pencil) I get 8191 max, zero is off.
When I adjust a pitchbend value in the list editor I get 0->16382 (8192 is off).
In fact, this difference is a bit rubbish really because it should be standardised across all editors. Hey hum.
OK, so the explanation… Pitchbend uses two distinct midi messages, one for the higher 7 bits (Most Signifiant Bits) and another for the lower 7 bits (Least Significant Bits). Together these give you a higher resolution of control than just 0-127 (which is what CCs have), and that’s needed because we’re more able to detect pitch inaccuracies. In previous versions we controlled the pitch using these two values separately in the editors, but now it looks like Steinberg have now rolled these into a single value ranging across the whole range. So, you need to use equally space values that span across the ranges I’ve mentioned above. E.g. -8191, -4096, 0, 4096, 8191.
Also, Steinberg, can we have a pitchbend automation lane please too??
I have created myself a Track Control script to control just the MSB of pitch shift using a Midi plugin which I can then control with an automation lane, but it’s far from the nicest method, much better if it was built into the automation system.
