Earlier my pitchbend automation range is 0-127 now i changed it to -100 to 100 (or something like it i maybe not see dot in number). but i cannot get it back in pianoroll. i know where is selected same works with Modwheel for example. and gui shows velocty different ways these modes one shows % and one uses midi values what something happens but not all what i expect. Is really not my skills. seems related used plugin. of why. maybe works what is expected but makes me wonder why is that and i feel earlier i can change this freely.

Indeed. I have always been able to use +/- 100% on the pitch bend automation, but now it all of a sudden is a value from 0.0 to 1.0 while it is controlling a value from - to +, with a range depending on the settings in the instrument.

So I used to set the plugin range to +-12 and then have a percentage table to know to which semitones I could bend. But now, if a bass needs to go up by 7 semitones I have to calculate:

(12+7)/24 to get the value for the transpose I want to end on. And for 7 down it is (12-7)/24.

I used to be able to just go either +/- 58.33%

More ideal would be that we could also select the range on semitones and that S1 converts this for us, so we see a scale in -2 to +2 or -12 to +12 semitones. That would save time in pitch glides!
