Because you send a Pitch Bend Message does not mean you are using a Pitch Bend technique.
I completely understand why for keyboardists this is a very difficult thing to comprehend.
I guess it's also difficult for guitar players like me to comprehend? Please.
You came into a thread discussing midi controllers, specifically the Seaboard Rise and claimed that it doesn't do pitch bend per note. Pitch bend only means one thing with midi controllers: Bending the pitch. It is not a technique, it's any way of altering the pitch continuously with a physical motion on a device, like a pitch wheel, a ribbon or X axis glide on the Seaboard. There are many techniques of creating a pitch bend on midi controllers that mimic pitch altering techniques on acoustic instruments (portamento, vibrato etc.).
Read carefully: You are the only one using the words "pitch bend" to describe a physical technique. Do you understand? So claiming that your keyboard is the only one that can do it is ridiculous if everyone else uses the term differently. Hey guess what, I just made a keyboard. Did you know that no other keyboard out there can play a C note? My keyboard can play a proper C note. When I hit the C note, a leprechaun pops out of a box on my desk.That is a real C note. And no other keyboard can play C.
So you took a term which refers to something very common in other controllers, changed it to mean something only your keyboard can do and then went and told people that other controllers can't do it. I thought you were crazy and it was funny, but nobody is this foolish. I'm starting to think this is some sneaky promotion of your keyboard. And it's very dishonest.
