Any way to control parameters in Massive X, with pitch bend settings?
I'm looking for something sort of like the Matrix in Serum. Where you can link a pitch bend to control other parameters in the synth. For example say I want my pitch bend to control rate of an LFO, and maybe and FX amount and mix levels as the pitch changes, then perhaps have them return to the prebended states over time or just on the next pitch bend.
There are possible solutions to this question that I can think of but none as clean as linking directly. The tracker seems the obvious way to go about it but it's not quite the same thing. I'm not very experienced with MX though so does anyone know of a work around?
Yes ofcourse you can2
Thanks for the response, not quite what I'm talking about. I don't want to have to use the PB wheel. I'm talking about something more similar to having the pitch bend control other parameters like the Matrix in Serum. As in when it happens or is triggered due to note placement the setting that controls the PB will also automatically control other parameters by the same amount. Check out the Matrix in serum so you can see what I mean.0
do you mean this one?0
I'm referring to this functionality. I can link the pitch bend to almost any other parameter. So that in my DAW when notes are aligned in a way to trigger the pitch bend mode in serum, it activates the pitch bend as well as now in this case the LFO1 Rate, and any other settings I link it to. Without needing to move physical PB wheels or use macros, or use trackers or something else.0
it's exactly the same as what you showed in your screenshot. you can link the PB to all parameters at the same time and control the PB in your DAW. It is not necessary to use a physical wheel for this.1
Maybe I'm dumb but this doesn't seem to be the same thing as what I'm talking about.
For example here's a simple note setup, the pitch will bend up to C4 based on the pitch bend range and time settings I have set. In massive this automatically triggers. I don't need to do anything. I'm looking to sync that to other parameters purely based on midi notes like here. I tried placing the PB wheel mod into other parameters and none of the parameters change along with the note changes.
It may be possible to link the PB wheel virtually in my DAW and then draw up some automation clips to follow the note changes but that's not what I was looking for. I can think of various solutions that aren't as clean as it being directly linked.0
I think you need this one.
bind this modulator to the LFO and then a frequency of oscillation of the LFO will change depending on the pitch of the note.
But I'm afraid that PB has absolutely nothing to do with it and pitch bend cannot do what you are talking about.2
Yes I am aware of the tracker, it was one of the solutions I mentioned but it is not a clean. And I did not say that pitch bend is the source of what I was talking about. You can choose any other parameter as the source, it's just that in my specific case I was wanted certain parameters to also trigger alongside pitch bend. I said that I would like to link the signal that triggers the pitch bend to activate inside of Massive to also trigger other settings. Like you can do in Serum in the MATRIX. It is not pitch bend that is the source but the pitch bend acts as a channel through which the trigger travels. Activating the pitch bend as well as other settings. Looks like I'll have to go with serum then.0
I gave you an example.
I would use that setting in Serum in the image I posted, that combined with the note placement in the piano roll image I posted would do certain things. These things include, pitch bending obviously but also whatever else I want to trigger. For example an LFO rate going up or down. It's really that simple.0
I think these are some tricks of Fl studio. In all other DAWs, this shouldn't work...because what you're talking about just goes against the way PB works. I checked and did the same as you showed in the serum. As expected, the LFO did not change with the pitch of the note. because to control the PB parameter in the serum you need to use PB physical or midi CC.0
Thanks for the information. Is there a standard name for the PB midi cc? I can't seem to find it in the midi cc browser in FL.0
MIDI CC (midi control change) is the protocol by which midi works. It doesn't matter if it's a keyboard or a DAW.
the pitch bend in the serum is there ↓
if you spin this virtual wheel in the serum, it will change what you showed us in the matrix.
I don't know why in your case note pitch, changes the position of the pitch wheel (bend)0
but in massive X you can trigger the modulation by modulation. just spin the little circle after having set two modulations in a row. I'm not sure what exactly you need, but try playing around with it.1
