Messages

bang

The bang message causes a zone to be defined based on the current settings of masterchan and chanrange. You can have a maximum of 7 zones.

clear

The clear message clears all currently configured zones and returns them to their default state.

createzone

Arguments

master-channel [int]
note-bend-range [int]
The word createzone, followed by a list of two integers that define the Master channel and the Note bend range, will define a zone. No bang message is required when using this message. You can have a maximum of 7 zones configured in any way you wish amongst the 16 channels.

masterbendrange

Arguments

max-bend-range [int]
The word masterbendrange, followed by an integer that specifies the maximum pitch bend range in semitones, will set the pitch bend range for all zones. that define the Master channel and the Note bend range, will define a zone. No bang message is required when using this message.

notebendrange

Arguments

ARG_NAME_0 [int]
The word notebandrange, followed by an integer that specifies the maximum pitch bend range in semitones, will set the pitch bend range for a specified master channel.
