# How do I adjust MIDI CC while a single note is playing?

I'd like to play a single long note and adjust the modwheel (or another knob) while it is playing. Something like

m1 $n "[f6 af6 bf6 c7]/4" # modwheel sine1  But that code doesn't work, the wheel never moves. edit retag close merge delete ## 1 answer Sort by » oldest newest most voted This doesn't work because Tidal only sends messages when notes are sent. But there's a workaround: Tidal will send MIDI note 128, but this isn't actually a valid note for synths and they should ignore it. So you can do this: m1$ stack [
n "[f6 af6 bf6 c7]/4",
midinote "128*32" # modwheel sine1
]


The "fake" note will be sent 32 times each cycle (which should be plenty) along with the modwheel changes I want.
