Step 2: Save the Pitch Bend Loop to the Browser 

Tip: You can resize the region to 4 bars, 16 bars, etc. by holding “Option” down and dragging the bottom right corner of the region.

Step 7: Adjust Each Parameter’s Scaling

Tip: Want to use a knob on your controller instead? Collapse the parameter mapping drop-down if you need to. Below it, you’ll see the External Assignment’s “Learn” button. Click it (so it turns red) then twist a physical knob on your MIDI controller.
