Did you ever find a solution?
In the Key Editor, you have to add a controller lane. You cannot just click on Velocity and select Pitchbend from that menu.
You must create a second controller lane by left clicking in the empty space below “Velocity” and click on Pitchbend.
Now you can do you pitchbending damage at will.
