Pitchbending Madness

A project log for Digibone

A digital instrument with all the flare of a trombone, with the power and flexibility of an MIDI instrument

Just a quick note-to-self to check out this discussion regarding pitchbending:

https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=457971.0

On my slide I am aiming to have 7 positions, giving me 7 definitive semitones in each range. Ideally I'd need to implement pitch bending between those semitones to give that trombone feel.

I thought pitchbending would be limited to a semitone either side, but apparently may be possible to bend much further.

If this is true, and it's possible to perhaps reach three semitones either side of a note, I could use one semitone per range (the one on the 4th position  middle of the slide) and then use the slide to determine the amount of bend on the note.

Yaaay
