    Please note that although announced at the same time as macOS Big Sur, Apple Silicon processors are an independent release with separate compatibility concerns for NI products. Compatibility with macOS Big Sur will not yet ensure compatibility with Apple Silicon processors.

    Is there any way to make one of the oscillators ignore the pitch bend data? I want to be able to bend the pitch of osc A and B, but to have the sound on osc C not be affected. How can I do this? Thanks!

    Hmmm I'm not sure if there's a way to do this at all in Absynth, actually.

    Instead of PB, you could use Mod Wheel (CC#1) to control Osc B pitch (and not Osc A), for example.?

    Yeah that would do as a workaround.

    I think I found a solution. By setting the oscillator to Hz mode instead of transpose, the pitch of the osc will remain fixed.

    Granted, this restricts that osc to the set frequency, so it won't transpose when playing different notes either.

    And yes, thank you for the tip on using mod wheel (or other cc) to control pitch. That would be a good solution when you want to transpose, but pitch bend only some of the oscillators.
