    Theres a control number. Here's a good resource: Midi Standard Controller Numbers. Control number 10 to be exact. I can't help but think it would be easier just to create an automation point for that note. Just draw it in on an envelope.

    im not real good with midi language.....would this be a one click type of thing or would i have to change every note within the song?

    You'd have to change every instance of that note afaik. Midi control numbers effect the entire midi channel. So, unless you have only that note on it's own channel, you have a small amount of work to do. Otherwise just draw in the automation. Much easier, I think.

    Home Page:
    You should be able to activate " automation on"> overdub the midi track and then hit record and pan the midi notes in real time using the panning on the track or a controller as Hueseph suggested. If you can't do this, it means you don't have midi pan activated which is a very simple setting in your midi command centre of you DAW preferences.
