Advanced MIDI functions
Bloom responds to MIDI note input in a variety of performance-oriented ways. You can define a separate MIDI channel for each of these types of MIDI input control using the MIDI panel located in the Options menu.
Sending MIDI to Bloom is host-dependent.
Both LFOs respond to MIDI note input for retriggering their phase and for setting their rate to BPM-based values.
The following MIDI note octave numbers assume that C-2 is the lowest MIDI note (MIDI note 0).
Generation of Pitch, Velocity and Random TransMod sources from MIDI notes
MIDI note input is used for generating several modulation sources within the TransMod system.
MIDI note velocity is converted to the Velocity source at every note-on.
MIDI note pitch is converted to the Pitch keyboard tracking source at every note-on.
A random number is generated when every MIDI note-on is received.
The MIDI panel is evoked using the Options menu. It allows you to choose which MIDI channels to use for various MIDI functionality.
The following settings allow you to specify MIDI channel 1-16 or Omni for all channels.
LFO MIDI Channel
This allows you to set the MIDI channel for MIDI notes for retriggering and setting LFO rates.
Pitch MIDI Channel
This allows you to set the MIDI channel for MIDI notes to generate the Pitch TransMod source.
Velocity MIDI Channel
This allows you to set the MIDI channel for MIDI notes to generate the Velocity TransMod source.
Rand Retrigger MIDI Channel
This allows you to set the MIDI channel for MIDI notes to generate values for the Random TransMod source.
