What's a good way to control pitch bend without a pitch bend wheel?

I'd like some sort of momentary control that either pitch bends up or pitch bends down a predetermined amount while a note is held down. (Similar to pressing "1" or "2" on the computer keyboard in Garageband.) I couldn't think of a clean way to do this with my Launchpad or my computer keyboard.

Can this be done in Ableton Live 9 using either the Launchpad or the computer keyboard?

    Midi automation.  You draw it within your DAW.

    you can also change the midi mapping setting to start or end at a certain point on your pitch wheel.  like have it start at 7 and go to 10 or such etc.
