xbendout

Format extra precision MIDI pitch bend messages

Description

xbendout only changes the most significant byte of the pitch bend message. However, using xbendout with midiout, you can send messages which change both bytes. xbendout2 allows you to send the pitch bend data as two bytes from 0-127.

Arguments

Name Type Opt Description
xbendout2 symbol If the object is called xbendout2, there will be three inlets. The most significant byte of the pitch bend message is received in the left inlet, and the least significant (extra precision) byte is received in the middle inlet.
MIDI-channel int opt The number sets an initial value for the MIDI channel of the pitch bend messages. If there is no argument, the initial channel number is 1.
