Recording pitch bend automation from midi controller to ONE drum sample in a drum rack midi loop

Hi Everyone, hope all is well.

So I've been working on a loop constructed from a drum rack with 10 pads of the rack holding banks of samples like the dubstop video referencing the ''last rack you will ever have to make''

All is fine other than the fact that when I turn the pitch wheel on my Novation Launchkey, the audio from all the midi is bent in pitch. I want to automate a pitch bend controlled manually by me on the midi controller to only ONE drum sample in the loop. Otherwise I'm pitching up other elements which I don't want.

How do I do this properly? I realise it's in the envelope control settings somehow but the problem is that I only want the pitch bend automation to affect only one sample. My loop has different midi notes triggering at the same time so I need to be able to constrain this automation to one sample only.

My solution thus far has been to use a macro control from the Sampler set to pitch transposition and then drawn in automation for that in the envelope editor which is obviously exclusive for the drum sample I select but this is not really what I wanted to do. I like to utilise all of my physical control surfaces to create more natural sounding automation...I prefer this to drawing in curves in the envelope editor.

What am I misunderstanding here?

My aim has been to work with a single drum rack with multiple clips in session view instead of having multiple tracks for each drum sample..I realise I could split out the drum rack into multiple tracks and then pitch bend would be isolated to the track I automate but this is what I'm trying to avoid.

So my question can also be applied to automating any parameter on only one drum sample within a loop.


Thanks a million
