Buchla Thunder pitch bend direction

Hi, I’ve started tinkering with the Thunder overlay and noticed the pitch mapping is mirrored. Pinky is always a low note going up towards the thumb. This is cool, however the x axis pitch bend should follow the same logic. As it is now pitch bend goes up in pitch always from left to right, which makes no sense in the right hand side where the pads are mapped to go up from right to left.
Also, it’s near impossible to stay in tune! You should look into the Linnstrument firmware and the pitch hold options available there to aid in playing in tune without losing the ability to do manual vibrato and glides. Cheers
