I'd like to modulate Pitch Bend and send it to my HW instrument but I can't seem to find a knob or a controller anywhere in Bitwig. It drives me mad to spend this much time and not to find such an elemental feature.

Can anyone help PLEASE?!?

I'm not experienced using external hardware synths but try this to add standard pitch bend (not mpe)...

Once you have dropped a HW Instrument Device on your track and assigned it to your external hardware, go to the Instrument Track in the arranger and click on the expand automation button, click the small white down arrow next to where it says Mixer/Volume, in the pop up that appears, select add midi lane, a window should appear where you can choose to add type: pitch bend.

I think that should work, I tried it by assigning the HW Instrument to Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth of my PC soundcard and it worked.

Thanks for the effort, I'm aware of this but that's not what I need. I need to modulate the pitch bend not automate it.

Yeah, that's weird. Even with the MIDI modulator in a mod slot on the HW Instrument Device there's no way to mod the pitch bend parameter using a second modulator...... I'm stumped! Submit a feature request here:
