pitch_random

Random tuning for the region, in cents.

Examples
pitch_random=10

pitch_random=400

Useful for humanizing the pitch of instruments with naturally imprecise intonation, especially when playing multiple regions in unison.

At least in ARIA and Cakewalk Dimension Pro this is unipolar, and equivalent to pitch_oncc135. So, if pitch_random is set to 20, the region will play at pitches tuned by an amount in the range from 0 cents to +20 cents. In order to get pitch to fluctuate between -20 and +20 cents, there would be two ways to get there, either by applying a fixed shift of -20 cents and a random shift of up to 40 cents:

pitch=-20
pitch_random=40

Or use CC136, which is bipolar random from -1 to 1:

pitch_oncc136=20
