I've been working on a midicsv data analysis project and i came across a midi file which had following format in data,
1, 4003, Note_on_c, 0, 61, 0
1, 4012, Pitch_bend_c, 0, 8192
1, 4140, Note_on_c, 0, 61, 74
1, 4369, Pitch_bend_c, 0, 7661
1, 4395, Pitch_bend_c, 0, 7204
1, 4420, Pitch_bend_c, 0, 6770
Now I know what a pitch bender is physically, however as I found pitch_bend_c almost in 80% of instances within the file, I was a bit confused and had a few question which I've tried to google but could'nt find any source that had a clear answer.
1. Why do we see here Pitch_bend_c status in place of the regular Note_off_c message?
Has that anything to do with the performance / instrument or it is just a different method/standard of specification?
2. If that is a different method / standard of specification, can we somehow translate/convert it to the 'regular' method?
Note: I've linked the file here for your reference: file with the data
Thank you in advance for your guidance in this matter.
