I wondered what is the best way of avoiding Potamenti(Shifts), when you want a smooth legato.
The passage I am working on, has low expression values (cc#11), and I want low velocity values whenever possible.
Sometimes to avoid portamento, I have to go from a velocity of 20 to a velocity of 85/90, but this does not sound very smooth.
Also does the velocity-off have any bearing on the outcome.?
I love the portamento effect on this instrument, it is very lifelike, but I wish I could have a little more control over it's use.
