value to set a pivot point note number, around which note event pitches will be reversed.

I think this is called something like (symmetrical) inversion (reverse is when notes are being played last to first, or right to left), and you get to the pivot note by using arithmatic: just simultaneously play upwards chromatically from C3 with your left hand and down chromatically from C4 with your right hand and your hands will meet at F#3.

Or assign numbers: C3 = 1, C#3 = 2 etc. up to C4 = 13.

C3 + C4 = 1 + 13 = 14

14/2 = 7

7 = F#3

F#3 is the middle because 7 - 6 = 1 (C3) and 7 + 6 = 13 (C4)
