How do I assign the pitch bend wheel in Massive to any parameter control, like a macro? Is this even possible?
Can you assign a parameter in NI's Massive to the MIDI Pitch bend wheel?
No, I don't think you can, Pitch Bend and Aftertouch have dedicated controllers(They aren't in the standard MIDI CC# 1-127 which Massive sees) - Meaning they won't show up in the list of CC#s in Massive.
You may be able to do it with MIDI monitoring/editing software.
Massive doesn't let you macro the pitch of the synth.
In order to do this you can either macro the individual OSC pitch values, or set the pitch range in the "Pitchbend" section of the "OSC" tab and modulate the pitchbend in your midi control.
I use Ableton - Live and I can automatize the pitchbend parameter of Massive.
Go to Massive's osc tab (where is the glide and the vibrato), there is a pitchbend section where you can adjust the Up and Down range expressed in semitones. I usually use Up 12 and Down 12. Then in Live you create a midi clip, at the left of the keyboard there is a CLIP section, below it there is a "E" button for opening the enveloppes. There you can automatize things like volume, balance and pitchbend.
