How does Hermod handles midi pitchbend data?



I actually have two questions:

  • How does the Hermod handles pitchbend data? I presume it adds or subtracts to the note cv yes?

I want to use an ipad running the app scalegen to send microtonal scales to the modular, and was thinking of using Hermod as a midi-to-cv sequencer. This ipad app sends midi note+pitchbend data to create the microtones. Has anyone tried to do this? Does it work or can it work well?

  • Another question is whether tHermod records and loops unquantized cv that is sent to its cv input, or whether it quantizes it to the nearest midi notes. Again, I would like to use a ribbon controller sending cv and gate to hermod (unquantized cv playing “fretless” pitches) and would like it to be reproduced as played, not quantized.


That are good questions indeed!


Were you able to save the microtonal scales in Hermod? I’m interested in doing the same thing…


Yes. Hermod records microtonal notes (midi note+pitchbend data) pretty accurately, sending cv and gate to an oscillator.
