So I did a few searches without coming up with threads that touch on this in a way I could understand or relate to. The problem I am having is how to effectively utilize the pitch bend in Cubase 8 (64b) in the midi controller lane of the piano roll.
Whenever I try to use the pitch bend, I end up on values that aren’t exactly the pitch I want, because the pitch bend appears to range from -8192 all the way to +8191. This is horribly useless, as I am dealing with semitones only. I want -12 to +12, and I can’t get that from this, because if I aim for +7, I’ll end up with something like +6.8769857469857 or the like. There’s no snap to grid function either.
I can easily land at the top tone, which is fine I guess. But getting back to ±0? Good luck, it’s either gonna be +15, -21 -7, +9 etc.
Is there any use of this function? Am I missing something obvious? To me this appears to have been designed 25% through, implemented 50% through and then just “yeah let’s wing it, it’ll do”.
Please help, I am horribly frustrated at this having spent the better part of 2 hours with only trying to make this work.
