Automating Pitch Bend in Live: why are my Clips suddenly out of tune?
- Live Versions: 4-9
- Operating System: ALL
Some of your MIDI Clips play back out of tune.
This might take place when triggering a second MIDI Clip after having played back a MIDI Clip which contains Pitch Bend automation.
The reason is that the latest Pitch Bend value will be still affecting the Instrument Tune when triggering a new Clip: unless the last Pitch Bend value before triggering the new Clip is "0", the new Clip will play out of tune.
To fix this behavior, please insert an automation brakpoint for the Pitch Bend at the beginning of every other MIDI Clip.
You could also set the automation breakpoint to "0" at the end of the MIDI Clip where the Pitch Bend automation has been recorded. However, this will be less effective, since it will only work if the Clip is played until its very end.
Because drawing a Pitch Bend automation breakpoint on the "0" can be quite difficult, it is recomended to select a small section of the automation envelope, and then copying and pasting it at the end of the MIDI Clip.
