Default To use pitch bend for any CC instead of pitch

Good times of day. I have digital piano, so unlike the midi keyboard it doesn't have the modulation wheel. Is there any way to use its pitch bend for any other CC, expression for example.
I know, that pitch isn't counted as CC, it has its own 8192 value, etc, so I have a problem with that

Here's a quick hack you can do:

1. Load ReaControlMIDI on the track
2. Enable "Control Change" section and pick a MIDI CC
3. Click on its slider, then press the "Param" button and assign a MIDI link to Pitch
4. Click on "Param" button again and this time open Parameter Modulation window
5. Set Offset to -50% and Scale to 200% (type in 200% because the slider goes to 100% only)

Voila, now your pitch bend up will send MIDI CC of your choice. However, it will also spring back to zero when you release pitch bend...


Maybe a better solution would be to get a small slider controller like Korg nanoKONTROL?

Thanks, it basically works. But a few more questions: when I linked pitch wheel to expression, I want to "delink" pitch wheel from pitch; and where I can edit my recorded with pitch wheel expression?

Easy: "ReaPack -> MIDI convert to CC"

It comes with ReaPack compatible description, viewable in ReaPac, but also readable in the beginning of the source code.

If you thinnk the text is nopt appropriate, please let me know and I'll try to improve it.
