Clips out of tune due to Pitch Bend Automation

  • Live Versions: 4-9
  • Operating System: All

If you find that some MIDI clips are out of tune, this could be occurring because the clips have been triggered after a MIDI Clip which contains Pitch Bend automation which doesn't end back at "0".

Solution

To fix this, please insert an automation breakpoint for the Pitch Bend at the beginning of every other MIDI Clip to reset the Pitch Bend to its default value.

You could also set the automation breakpoint to "0" at the end of the MIDI Clip where the Pitch Bend automation has been recorded. However, this will be less effective, since it will only work if the Clip is played until its very end.

Because drawing a Pitch Bend automation breakpoint on the "0" can be quite difficult, it is recomended to select a small section of the automation envelope, and then copying and pasting it at the end of the MIDI Clip.

Make a tiny selection in the Pitch Bend automation envelope where the value is set to "0".

Paste the previously copied selection at the very end of the MIDI Clip, so that it will end with a Pitch Bend value of "0".
