# Automate MIDI pitch in Ableton w/ 3rd Party Plugin Instrument

Checked out this but it didn't help me all the way N.I. Massive assign Pitch Bend Wheel to Macro

I have an ableton rack with an instance of massive. I have my MIDI clip opened, clicked the (E) envelope button to bring up the envelope view, selected MIDI Ctrl and Pitch Bend. When I make a change to the envelope, the pitch doesn't change...It goes up to 8191 (I'm assuming cents).

How can I automate pitch bends of MIDI this way?

• not sure what you are asking here - can you edit your post to clarify a) what you are trying to do, and b) what isn't working. – Rory Alsop Feb 16 '16 at 10:46
• Downvote? A) "Automate MIDI pitch in Ableton w/ 3rd Party Plugin Instrument" and B) "When I make a change to the envelope". I specifically mentioned both of your concerns. I don't think a downvote was necessary on this. I'm trying to automate the pitch of my MIDI instrument in the MIDI clip using the envelopes. When I automate it, the pitch doesn't change. How does that not make sense enough for you to downvote me? – O.rka Feb 17 '16 at 18:17
• O.rka - I have not downvoted you – Rory Alsop Feb 17 '16 at 18:17
• Sorry about that @RoryAlsop. I thought the question was clear but I can elaborate more. – O.rka Feb 17 '16 at 18:19
