A way to record pitch bend to automation curve

Renoise currently records pitch bend MIDI events as M1 XXYY effects.

However, I would expect most users would prefer a “what you hear” recording — that is, for the pitch bend data to be recorded to an automation curve.

Can Renoise do this? It would be especially useful now that it’s so quick in 3.1 to wire-up a Renoise native instrument to respond to pitch bend.

(If there are similar limitations around recording other numeric MIDI data, being able to record those to automation too would be pretty awesome.)

What’s up with this, stuff like bends suck as per-line-pattern-data and needs interpolation to sound smooth. Can’t believe a daw can has control its instruments by bend/aftertouch, and can sequence (interpolated) automation graphs, but can’t properly record/sequence bend/aftertouch directly as graph?

What’s going on here, if ppl weren’t used to this as a fact they’d believe the devs must be totally crazy???

Bends are mui importante for many people I guess, and portamento effect commands are nice but just not the same and not available for vst synths!
