Last May/June, Duncan Brinsmead posted a slow Mahler movement using Dan Dean solo strings which was marvelous. He painted in pitch bends and volume(using breath controller for volume)between the notes. He used an extra track for each voice and put the pitch bends in both tracks.
I liked it so much I purchased DDSS (as my first GS string adventure.
But I\'m having trouble getting the pitch bends to happen at all. It may be from a basic mis-understanding of how midi pitch bend works.
Duncan said \"I created string glissandos using two tracks with pitch bends and cross fades\".
Why can\'t I (in one track) just put:
Note ... Increassingly lower pitch bends ... Lower note.
Won\'t midi controller pitch bends alter a note that is already sustaining? The same way you can alter a sustaining pitch on a synth by using the pitch bend wheel?
In my sequence, if I put the pitch bend(s) before a midi note event it changes the track to that pitch level. An absolute pitch change but no glissando.
Thanks for any help on this ... I\'d really like to be able to use it.
I\'m using Sonar & GigaStudio
