Hello and nice to be here. I make hip hop beats with samples. I use NN-19's for my main samples then Kong and Redrum for individual drum samples. Recently my NN-19's have been jiggling the pitch bend ever so slightly, so my main samples slow down as they play. sometimes it does this other times it does not, and the problem moves from one NN-19 to another as the song is playing. Has anyone encountered this problem before, if so, what to do? Any other suggestions are also welcome. Thank you.

9 times out of 10 when someone describes a control "moving on its own" in any way, it's because of a janky hardware controller as the culprit, sending out data on its own. If you don't have any hardware connected, it could be accidentally recorded (check the track), otherwise I got nothing…

If you were recording when this happened, you can end up with pitch bend, modulation wheel, or expression pedal data accidentally affecting the sound. It's easy to find and delete, but what is more common is for it to happen on playback to the current device in focus (the one that will play if you hit a key/pad on your controller. The quick fix is to move the offending control back and forth ("exercise" it) and it should clear.
You can use specific products to clean the control if the problem persists:

Yep, just had this problem with my LaunchKey Mk1. The mod wheel would not stay at 0, it would bounce back to about value 20 making every patch that had modulation sound a bit weird. Got a replacement (thanks Focusrite!) and actually managed to install it and now it's back to normal (a bit sad as I wanted an excuse to upgrade...lol)

In the meantime, assign the janky knob/dial/fader to something else so that it's not captured by the instrument you're playing/recording with.

Just filter out the pitch bend info...Oh wait, it's Reason you're talking about. They're working on Reason's MIDI integration, but since MIDI is so new (it's only been around for 40 years), it might take a while. R17 maybe?

You could use LoopBE and use a software MIDI filter.

I have two Roland A-880 MIDI patch bays, that I got in the eighties, that can filter that with no problem. They even have separate filter options for channel-pressure and poly-pressure.... in the eighties :o

There's one on Reverb for 116 euros :thumbup: Mine are both in mint condition, perfectly working, and definitely NOT for sale :puf_bigsmile:
