Mackie fader pitch bend

Submitted by modo on Fri, 11/11/2022 - 11:02

In Mackie mode, the Behringer BCF2000 sends pitch bend values for each of the faders.

The data looks like the below, moving a fader from the bottom to the top. The data list below is sorted in reverse; the topmost line is the last message when the fader is at the top of its travel.

Is there any way to work with pitch bend data in CSS? I would have thought it was a common scenario, so maybe I'm just missing something?

Hey,
I'm new but this question has been raised already two years ago.
I'm having the same issue with my Faderport:

I see absolutely no possibility how to use the Fader.
Which is like THE reason to have a Faderport!

PLEASE developers,
give some answer or at least a hint if implementing pitch bend is something on your agenda!!!

Besides that and some other buggy behavior the app is really fun to work with :-)

Yes, I just took granted it would work. It would be good to hear the developer's comment. It's a puzzling omission.

I'm still desperate to use my motor fader with pitch bend values.

Any suggestions on how to do it?

btw: I'm currently trying to send raw midi data to the fader after finding out 224 is Chan 1 Pitch Bend Change.
Setting the fader to a sepcific value works:
self._send_midi((224, 0, 108))

But the problem seems to be to include dynamic information like:

self._send_midi((224, 0, (self.song().master_track.mixer_device.volume.value)))
or modifiers
self._send_midi((224, 0, ("m1"))) / self._send_midi((224, 0, (self.get_modifier_value("m1"))))

because:
"TypeError: No registered converter was able to produce a C++ rvalue of type int from this Python object of type str"

And I still have no idea on how to get values from moving the fader...
Help please!
