What is the pitch bend's unit of measurement in the the midi clip editor?

Wondering if anyone knows, or where I might find information about, the unit of measurement in the pitch bend view of the midi clip editor?

    Pitchbend is 14 bit data.  16384 possible bend positions.  8192 on the bend up, and -8192 on the bend down.

    How the device receiving the pitch bend data will react to it is dependant on it's settings.  Some synthesizers can alter the range of pitchbend.  Ableton's Analog, for example, can be set to a maximum bend range of 12 semitones.  Other instruments, such as Serum, Sylenth1, and Omnisphere, allow for up to 24 semitones of pitch bend.
