How to reverse the pitch wheel?

Post by Hannibal Lektra » Wed Feb 25, 2015 2:36 pm

I setup all of my keys with a yoke-style pitch wheel. I usually accomplish this by calibrating the wheel in the preferred direction but the Pro 2 pitch wheel looses functionality when I try to calibrate it in the opposite direction as the factory setting. Am I missing something?

I guess the only way is to calibrate normally.

Set pitch bend amounts to 'off'.

Use the mod matrix to send pitch bend to Osc All Freq.

I haven;t tried this but it might be worth a try.

This works. Just tried it. :)

Set both up and down pitch bend ranges to Off. In the mod matrix set Source = Pitchbend, Amount = -127, Destination = Osc All Freq.

Actually, a value of -127 gives a full 16 semitones of pitchbend in both directions. 1 semitone is a value of 8 so to get a reversed pitchbend of an octave, for example, would require a value of -96.

Thank you very much for the replies, fellas.

Bob's info worked for me too.

Is there not a global solution tho?

Got a response from DSI on the subject that said that they will add the feature in a future update. :D

I cracked open my Pro-2 last night to reverse the polarity of the pitch-wheel and I'm happy to report that it works perfectly on both the Pro-2 and the Prophet-6.
