Thank you. Very good. What settings do you use for the Pitchbend on MG2 ? and/or in SWAM if they are relevant?

In my setup I cannot make the notes truly bend, they tend to jump from the played note to the upper one and back…in other words I cannot make the vibrato with my finger ( or, in the best of cases , it’s erratic )


Hi! Sorry bout the late reply! I saw you message late last night, and I wanted to be sure before I answered. First off, Pitch bend value should always match between MG2 and instrument. And it may differ between AUv3 and Standalone. Here with the SWAM brass you have the standalone version set to 12 initially, and the plugin is set to something else. And upon further inspection I realize I can’t get the plugin version to behave properly. My guess is that it is either of the MPE mode or the Pitch Bend Curve settings that needs to be adressed. These however aren’t available in this version of the plugin. So what I do is, I just play the standalone version (12 pb value on both), MPE (MIDI Profile), and Pitch Bend Curve (on)(both under “Advanced”). Start with that, and see if you get better results!/ LoFiLeif

Thanks for the reply. I have been doing a lot of tinkering to try to understand what has an impact on the Pitchbend when using MidiGuitar to play the SWAM Trumpet. Well , so far , I cannot claim I fully undertand it but I reached a workable solution .
I am setting the MG2 parameters as follows : Polyphonic Tracking, Bend Range 6 , Legato and AT both Enabled. And in SWAM Trumpet, Auxiliary Parameters Pitch Bend up and down , both to 6, Portamento CC Max Time 1.7. Midi Profile : Legacy.
I am under the strong suspicion that of all of these parameters, the one that makes the Pitchbend go erratic and “jump” from one note to the next rather than bending up , is if I choose Monophonic Trackig on the MG2, because that is when the response changes erratically…if I leave it at Polyphonic , the Pitchbend works the way it should. There is obviously something going on there. (I am sure that if a technical guy from Jamorigin reads this he can explain why this happens) .

Hi Lofileif really great example on youtube.
In the first part of the video do you use breath control or not ?
Thx a lot

Hi Alex.In the first part I don’t use breath controller! I can use the Seaboard preset (turn pitch bend to 12 both up/down on SWAM instrument and 12 on MIDI Guitar 2 software) and most importantly After Touch for expression control. So AFTERTOUCH enabled on MG2.

Hi lofileif really great ! But, newbie question, how do you generate aftertouch with a guitar ? Bending and legato are clear to me but aftertouch no. Thx a lot !

ENABLE Aftertouch on the MIDI Guitar software, (below bend range and legato), and just play! With the Seaboard preset the SWAM instrument will do the rest for you! Just try it and play!

Thx and Marry Christmas ! Will try it :blush:
