xbendin

Interpret extra precision MIDI pitch bend values

Description

Acts as a 14-bit pitch bend filter/processor and xbendin2 serves as a 2-byte pitch bend filter/processor.

Examples

Pitch bend values are sent out as a single number or as two separate bytes

Arguments

channel [int]

Optional

The number specifies a MIDI channel on which to recognize pitch bend messages. If there is no argument, xbendin recognizes pitch bend messages on all channels, and the channel number is sent out the extra outlet on the right.

xbendin2 [symbol]

Optional

Normally, xbendin sends pitch bend values out the left outlet as 14-bit values. If the object is called xbendin2, however, there will be an additional outlet. The most significant data byte of the message is sent out the leftmost outlet, and the least significant data byte is sent out the second outlet.

Attributes

Common Box Attributes

annotation [symbol]

Sets the text that will be displayed in the Clue window when the user moves the mouse over the object.

background [int] (default: 0)

Adds or removes the object from the patcher's background layer. background 1 adds the object to the background layer, background 0 removes it. Objects in the background layer are shown behind all objects in the default foreground layer.

color [4 floats]

Sets the color for the object box outline.

fontface [int]

Sets the type style used by the object. The options are:

plain
bold
italic
bold italic

Possible values:

0 = 'regular'
1 = 'bold'
2 = 'italic'
3 = 'bold italic'

fontname [symbol]

Sets the object's font.

fontsize [float]

Sets the object's font size (in points).

Possible values:

'8'
'9'
'10'
'11'
'12'
'13'
'14'
'16'
'18'
'20'
'24'
'30'
'36'
'48'
'64'
'72'

hidden [int] (default: 0)

Toggles whether an object is hidden when the patcher is locked.

hint [symbol]

Sets the text that will be displayed in as a pop-up hint when the user moves the mouse over the object in a locked patcher.

ignoreclick [int] (default: 0)

Toggles whether an object ignores mouse clicks in a locked patcher.

patching_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 100. 0.)

Sets the position and size of the object in the patcher window.

position [2 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the object's x and y position in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its size unchanged.

presentation [int] (default: 0)

Sets whether an object belongs to the patcher's presentation.

presentation_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 0. 0.)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in the patcher's presentation, leaving its patching position unchanged.

rect [4 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation).

size [2 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the object's width and height in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its position unchanged.

textcolor [float]

Sets the color for the object's text in RGBA format.

textjustification [int]

Text Justification

Possible values:

0 = 'left'
1 = 'center'
2 = 'right'

varname [symbol]

Sets the patcher's scripting name, which can be used to address the object by name in pattr, scripting messages to thispatcher, and the js object.

Messages

int

Arguments

input [int]
The numbers are individual bytes of a MIDI message stream, received from an object such as midiin or seq. MIDI pitch bend messages are recognized by xbendin, and the pitch bend data is sent out in full precision.

Output

int

The pitch bend value is sent out the left outlet of xbendin as a single 14-bit value. If the object is called xbendin2, there is an additional outlet. The most significant 7 bits are sent out the leftmost outlet, and the least significant (extra precision) 7 bits are sent out the second outlet. If there is no channel number specified as an argument (omni on), xbendin will have an extra outlet on the right, which will output the channel number of the incoming pitch bend message.
