View Full Version : Normal pitch bend please.

I'm sure there are many requests for a normal pitch bend range adjustment, measured in half steps, just like every other keyboard synth, plug in or sampler I've ever seen in my 30 years of playing, recording and MIDI sequencing. Please.
And if possible, different settings per MIDI channel, but not a biggie if not.

oh no, that would be completely against my liking :). I think there is a good reason why EW have programmed the wheel like this:
With a more sensitive pitch bend wheel it is more easy to make slight detuning on the samples. I often use this for string or brass parts because that imitates the human behaviour of a real orchestra. The instrumentalists in an orchestra never play the perfect tune.

Most samples of EW are based on real instruments where a smaller pitch bend range is more useful.

I see your point. Maybe an option for both. It's just slow and weird to not have the option of intervals.

It should just be in cents, from -1200 to 1200. Best of both worlds.

Perfect! Yeah. That makes cents! (Sorry)
