Pitchbend with TouchOSC and Logic in Az Controller
« on: February 17, 2019, 10:34:47 PM »
Hi,

I have one question,how can i get pitchbend wheel with TouchOSC and maybe Logic in Az Controller?
Maybe something like has been done in volume fader in touchosc preset.
Something like: if i move fader then it sends midi messages as pitchbend, but when it is released, go to neutral position.

Ps. Sorry if my English is quite bad, im just 14 y/o guy from Poland ;)

AZ Controller is not manipulating MIDI stream, it can intercept it or watch it, but not change. At least not directly.

The only workaround which comes into my mind is configuring TouchOSC fader as normal OSC and as the reaction on it send PB message to some software MIDI loopback (like LoopMIDI).
On release message (OSC), send OSC value (center) to the TouchOSC. That will more or less imitate PitchBend.

But for any practical purpose I recommend real hardware PB controller. Apart from tricky setup, the timing from TouchOSC based solution will be bad. In other words, even when you organize what  you want with the software, messages with "lag" and "jitter" compare to real hardware.
