Aalto is amazing. It would be very useful (IMO) if pitchbend were available to use as a control that you can wire into your patches to have non-pitchbend influence. I have a couple of patches where it would be useful to wire pitchbend into timbre and drive.
Pitch bend is really rolled in with key pitch right now in the instrument so there is no way to access the pitch bend amount without the note's pitch added. I can see where what you're proposing would be useful.
In the meantime could use just use a different controller and assign that controller number to the mod output?
Thanks Randy. I'll use something like Midi Fire to translate pitchbend to a CC. One reason for hoping that pitch bend might be added in the future as a mod source is its better granularity.
