[ddots-l] Re: Pitch Bend Commands

So what do I do? I would try entering the pitch bend values manually in
Sonar, but unfortunately, I don't know if there's a way to quantize them to
the right durations without making a mess of the notes and other events.

You might not enjoy that experience as the pitch wheel is a double-width
MIDI message.  Normal MIDI CC messages have 2 to the power 7 possible values
(0-127), but the wheel messages has 2 tot he power 14, so uyou'll see an
awful lot of messages if you've done anything but a very small bend.  The
reason for this behaviour is so that your bends can be executed smoothly, so
128 possible values was too granular.

 

Best wishes.

Hi Annabelle,

 

Do you have a pitch wheel on the keyboard you are using? If so, try pressing
record on Sonar then, just holding down say C5 and bending the note. Now go
into event edit>

As you arrow down the numbers on the controllers may give you an idea of how
they form the bend.

 

I've never done this myself as I rarely use pitch bend, however, I do step
record and alter notes and controllers in the event menu quite a bit.

I would put in the pitch bend commands manually, however, I don't know if
there's a practical way to quantize just the pitch bend commands, for
example, by 16th notes, or 32nd notes. Especially since I can't work in the
piano roll view, without making a mess of the notes. I can only work easily
in the Event List.

Hi Annabelle,

 

I would record pitch bend whilst playing, the controller commands will
really start to get out of hand if you try to do it manually.

 

Garritan Jazz is my only exception when using lots of controllers, I use a
fair few to switch on and off doits, kisses, falls and occasional breathy
notes on the trumpet.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I was just now reading the part of the Sibelius Manual that tells about
Pitch Bend commands, and I'm a little confused on one part. After I would
enter the initial range, ~C100,0, ~C101,0, ~C6,2, ~C100,127, and ~C101,127,
what would I enter for the ~B0 command for a quarter tone, a halfstep, and a
whole step? Would it still be things like ~B0,32, ~B0,40, ~B0,64, ~B0,80,
~B0,96, and ~B0,127? I'm confused!
