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.

  • 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?

  • Sorry about that @RoryAlsop. I thought the question was clear but I can elaborate more.

Your method is correct. First try a single instance of just Massive in your MIDI track, not a rack with macros. Also, make sure Massive reacts to pitch bend. Got to the OSC tab and make sure Pitchbend is something else than 0 for up and down. Good luck!
