Edit/Controls/Pitch-bend mode doesn't save

Post by smwells5 »

When changing the pitch-bend controller under 'Edit' / 'Contols' for any given instrument, you can choose between 'V. Tilt' / 'V.lin Tilt' / 'H. Tilt' / 'None'.

When a mode besides 'None' is chosen, and the pre-set saved, it always reverts back to 'None' next time it is accessed, regardless of what was saved.

Thanks

I'm not able to reproduce this here. Can you walk through the exact steps you are taking to load, modify, and save your preset?

Ok, here are the steps:

1. Choose Default instrument (Cello, for this example)

2. Choose 'Edit' button at lower left of screen.

3. Choose 'Controls'

4. At bottom of options screen is 'Pitch Bend' with selector plate to choose from 'V. Tilt', 'V.Inv Tilt', 'H. Tilt' and 'None'

5. Choose 'V.Inv Tilt' from selections

6. Click box w/ up-arrow at top right of screen

7. Click 'Save as new Preset'

8. Name it 'Cello Copy' and click 'Save'

9. Click 'Done' at top left of screen

10. Exit Thumbjam app

11. Re-open Thumbjam app

12.'Cello Copy' instrument opens by default

13. Click 'Edit' button at lower left of screen.

14. Click 'Controls'

15. See that 'Pitch Bend' selection panel at the bottom of the screen has 'None' selected.

I have to set this explicitly every time - it doesn't save with the preset.

Thanks

Jesse,

Were you able to reproduce the problem?

Hadn't heard a response on my steps.

I set PitchBend/V. Inv Tilt on every instrument I use, and this is now an intuitive mode of expression on the instrument.

Being able to move from one saved instrument to another during a performance without having to re-set this every time would be a tremendous benefit.

Thanks

Ah, this seems to be a problem when choosing V Inv. Tilt only... the other options do restore properly. Another hint is that it doesn't display on the main play screen when V.Inv.Tilt is selected either. Thanks for the bug report!
