Can't speak for the other fella's, but I've personally tried Portamento quite a few times with 0 success with soft synths. Is it possible that Portamento is for controlling hardware only?

But you are right, that is another option if you can get it to work.

Almost all the orchestral Vsti's have a portamento that works. It is often implemented by changing the function of the pedal such that when the pedal is held down and the portamento is on the Vsti slurs between two played notes rather than sustaining the notes. If your midi controller does not have a pedal you usually have to automate both the pedal and the portamento values for the effect to work.

Hi Roy,

Thanks for explaining that. It must be dependent on the the VSTi or Hardware. I tried it on Z3ta and Dim Pro with no success. The Portamento options I see come up are quite different than what CT's look like in his screenshot. I had to go in and enable 3 different controllers related to it with no success. On/Off was one of them.

I'm learning a lot here, hope the OP is getting some good idea's too.

Thanks,

Shane

Yep keeping an eye on it.. And learning..

The reason for asking is that in Notation software (which uses midi in the background to drive VSTI's etc) you can write a gliss (which is what I did on the screen shot example) and the Notation software will do the gliss as a smooth "measured slide" between whatever the notes the gliss is drawn between. And generally playback is also fairly good.

Having the same feature in Studio One Midi would be great for and on some ways essential for Orchestral work etc.. But obviously guitars, horns etc. go and yeah Synths in arrangements would also benefit..

So working how how to do it is crucial for this that do such work.

So any ideas are valuable to try out..

Obviously the simpler solution is best for speed and workflow reasons..
