Something I really enjoyed about Z3ta+ is that it has this mode where the pitch bender bends notes by a number of scale degrees-- and will bend up or down to other notes in the scale (rather than a fixed interval). This means that you can have a pitch bend of a 3rd, and it will choose between Major 3rd (2 whole steps) or a minor 3rd (3 semitones) or whatever the scale dictates.
I started to mess with a combination of mod sources using OCT NOTE, PITCH BEND, and MOD REMAP, to see if I could get to this “the hard way”. Seems possible. But I wasn’t able to get there, yet.
I suppose this is a feature request, but I can see there’s quite a bit of other tidying up ahead of this one.
I like the idea. I can imagine quantizing the timing as well as pitch of a bend to simulate arpeggios. Give the bend 2 octaves of range up and down and you can have some freedom of expression with an arp.
That’s a good question. It doesn’t change the incoming note, so I suppose if it gets a note that is not in the scale it will bend to the nearest note (?) I don’t remember, and I don’t feel like launching Z3+a to figure it out.
