Yeah, that's what I figured. If you play legato notes with low velocity - like you would do, if you run a finger up/down the keyboard - the Stradivari automatically bends the notes (adds portamento), so they form a seamless glissando.
Is there any way of creating slides to other notes on strings? any one got the midi for it? i tried the pitch bend but it sounds rubbish? or are there any good sample libraries with slides in?
There are different slide technique with strings, depending on the length, speed, and other factors. Below are a couple of tutorials. Although done with our libraries the same principles may apply to other libraries.
Aaaah, sorry for my ignorant remark! I did not know this was possible with the Stradivari!
By the way: This is the best sample string glissando I ever heard!! I mean, it still does sound a *little* fake but at the same time it is lightyears ahead of every other attempt I heard until today! Wow! Good work!
Gary, would you please chain Tom to his studio, until he programs fully playable glissandi for string sections? Maybe even glissandi chords? Since today I believe you guys could pull it off!
Thanks for you help have a look at my website i have bits and bobs on there and tell me what you think music wise good or bad www.mikebrownonline.co.uk
im interested in the chord gliss aswell that sounds interesting the glissandos i would more likely use are quicker ones !
