    Idiots Guide to Portamento

    Hey everyone,


    I'm working on an orchestral mock up and I need to be able to do stiring slides. Can anyone give me a step by step approach to doing this? I would appreciate it very much.


    Thanks alot,
    Jonny

    Hmmm... Is there a need for this as a tutorial? I don't think there's currently a tutorial up on portamento. I wish I could get better results or I'd do it myself.

    It's a tutorial I'd certainly read and appreciate.

    Although I must say I've never cared for the "for Dummys", "for Idiots", book titles. Being a beginner is not the same as being an idiot. Er, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    Sorry, just a flippant kinda day, I suppose...

    Also, Johnny, the process for achieving optimum portamento results using the stringed instruments and the trombone will be changing soon. The woodwinds and the rest of the brass are unaffected by this change. I'm writing something on the new feature, but it is pretty broad in spectrum and only goes into how to do it, since I'm not proficient enough to give exact pointers.
