Device Overview

Name/Version: SWAM Thing 1.01
Author: greaterthanzero  
Description: This device extends the pitch range of AudioModeling SWAM instruments. I don't expect it will be useful for any other synth.

All of the AudioModeling SWAM instruments have notes you can bend to, outside the range of notes you can start on. I guess they're used for effect, but aren't something a human player would ever reach for.

This device detects when you're trying to play those notes, and rearranges things so that you can. (It applies pitch bend to a note you're allowed to play, instead of triggering a note that would be silent)

The math is different for each of those instruments, but a simple drop-down will let you select yours as needed. An editor is also provided, in case my settings are not to your liking.

Unfortunately, is seems max for live only saves these settings with your live set. To store them between sessions, we have to change them while the .amxd file is open in your editor, and then save the device before closing it. I'm not removing the preset editor, but I am removing access to it from the front panel. Sorry.


Note: This device more or less assumes that your synth is configured to a bend range of +/- 48 steps. If this is not the case, use the "bend range" setting to match yours. (That *should* work, but I honestly haven't tested it.)
