xbendout

Format extra precision MIDI pitch bend messages

Description

Formats messages which occupy both bytes of the MIDI pitch bend message. xbendout2 allows you to send the pitch bend data as two bytes from 0-127.

Examples

14-bit pitch bend value is formatted into a MIDI message, which is sent out byte-by-byte

Arguments

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.

channel [int]

Optional

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 .

int

Arguments

input [int]
The number is a 14-bit pitch bend value to be formatted into a complete MIDI pitch bend message by xbendout.

  (inlet1)

Arguments

channel [int]
