outipb — Sends MIDI pitch-bend messages at i-rate.


Sends MIDI pitch-bend messages at i-rate.


outipb ichn, ivalue, imin, imax


ichn -- MIDI channel number (1-16)

ivalue -- floating point value

imin -- minimum floating point value (converted in MIDI integer value 0)

imax -- maximum floating point value (converted in MIDI integer value 127 (7 bit))


outipb (i-rate pitch bend output) sends pitch bend messages. It works only with MIDI instruments which recognize them. It can drive a different value of a parameter for each note currently active.

It can scale an i-value floating-point argument according to the imin and imax values. For example, set imin = 1.0 and imax = 2.0. When the ivalue argument receives a 2.0 value, the opcode will send a 127 value to the MIDI OUT device. When the ivalue argument receives a 1.0 value, it will send a 0 value. i-rate opcodes send their message once during instrument initialization.


Here is an example of the outipb opcode. It uses the file outipb.csd.

Thanks goes to Rasmus Ekman for pointing out the correct MIDI channel and controller number ranges.
