Default Pitch-Bending

Pitch Bending.. Anyone else have nightmares when doing this in Logic?

I'm sure (hope) that i'm just doing something stupid here. But after having a play with it in HyperEditor, i can't seem to reset it! All that channel is now 2 tones down and i have nothing drawn in the editor.

I've since drawn lines in the middle and top but those just create more gap between the original.

Anyone?

Forgive me for asking this but did you choose pitch shift instead of pitch bend?

That would be stupid And thankfully, No, i'm using the Pitch Bend editor in the HE.



If i get rid of all lines, it's 2 down. Middle, it is the same tone BUT the notes playing during the 'lines' are warbled. At the top, it's miles above the original (4-5tones)

Deleting it all and starting again seems to keep it at the last setting it was at (Ie, 2 tones down in my case)

Hmmmm i'm not familiar with Logic so I don't know then. The only thing I can think of is the patch you're using might have something odd assigned to the pitch bend wheel, but then you would have heard that if you just played it beforehand?

It sounds to me like your synth is remembering the last pitch bend value it was sent. You need to completely delete the pitch bend data... I'm not familiar with Logic, but Cubase has an event list editor which shows a text list of every MIDI event so you can see exactly what is or isn't there. You should also send out a MIDI System Reset command to reset all controllers (specifically including the pitch bend)... it is a single byte code with a value of 255 (or FF in hex) which instructs all connected equipment to reset all controllers to default values and to stop all sound. You might also find "MIDI Reset" available as a menu command.

Don't forget that with pitch bend, you'd need to set a precise 50% value to achieve zero pitch bend... remember pitch bend goes down as well as up!
