Pitch bends

• Nov 6, 2018 - 11:00

How do you make the pitch of a note in instruments such as the guitar and flute bend down / up?


I had to research this too. Go to the main palette and find the articulations menu. Scroll down to bend (the curved up arrow with "full" written over it). Add that to your note. If you need to edit the bend, you'll have to click on the bend and View Inspector. It'll open the edit page. Scroll down and you'll see a drop down for the type of bend you want. There are 4 choices: Bend, Bend/Release, Bend/Release/Bend, Prebend, Prebend/Release and Custom. I usually use Custom. You'll see a graph representing those behaviors. Place the dots on the lines where they intersect and play back the note.
