how do I make convincing Glissandi with Strings (violins in particular)? [As if the player shifts his finger from top to bottom on the same string, where top is the highest note]. I just entered in Sonar Pianoroll window a bunch of notes, each 1/2 step apart from each other, each with a slightly different length, and applied a bit of pitchbend to them. The total span is at most 2 octaves on the same string.
how do I make "real life" timpani rolls (like drum rolls)? As far as I understood the note duration doesn't play a roll in this, it is just, within some measures (bars) a multitude of notes played as fast a one can do? I looked at the keyswitches but couldn't make any sense from it. Please help.
Forgive my ignorence,
