Message to send to sounds when the value of this element has changed or a rank message was intercepted.

See continuous for further messages.

In case a continuous filter is just adding messages to those of a rank there's no need to use an intercept message.

Expression Pedal

A continuous filter can be used to realize an wikipedia:expression pedal.

A typical setup for an expression pedal might have the following messages:




equal 176, equal 7, get volume


set 176, set 7, set volume 127 | mult value

You can read the these messages as: "Intercept any volume change (176) and store its volume in the variable volume. If the element changes or a message has been intercepted, send a volume change with the last volume (or 127 if not intercepted yet) adjusted to the current value of this element."

Tuning Wheel

A continuous filter can be used to tune the sounds of referencing ranks.

Utilizing a pitch bend (224) wikipedia:Midi message to detune from 0 to 127:




set 224, set 0, set value | mult 127

Note that the tuning range depends on the pitch bend sensitivity of your sounds producer. Instead of pitch bend you might have to use another wikipedia:Midi Controller or wikipedia:NRPNs.

See tuning switch if you want to switch between fixed tunings.
