Default Gliding from one note to another?

Ok that might not be the correct terminology. I am sure I saw in a Pro Tools video recently (Cant find it now) a way of when you play say a brass instrument or a guitar and you play say an A and then an E there is a way to make it bend or glide up to that note rather than just go straight from one note to another.

I assume it might make guitar solos or brass instruments played on a keyboard sound less like your playing a keyboard. Anyone know how to do that please?

You don’t mention what instrument you’re using, so it’s kind of hard to tell you how to do it.

But what you should be searching for in the manual of your instrument is portamento or glide.

Thanks. I was messing about with a guitar, "Dirty Strat". It sounds ok when bashing out power chords and using the pitch bend but I just wondered if I could make it sound less like a keyboard when playing say a solo. Same would apply for perhaps a saxophone. Dunno where the manuals are but Ill search on those suggested search terms.

Well you need to be a good keyboard player to use the slide wheel and transpose wheel aswell as some sounds are not gonna glide by themselves as they arent programmed to do that.

We use the Roli Rise Grand which cost 2500 USD for these things as thats a 5 dimentional keyboard but you shouldn’t need that of course but you do need some keyboard skillz either way.

It's more dependent on the the virtual instrument plugin than the midi -- you're kind of concentrating on the wrong detail because of that. Some VIs have scripts (like Kontakt) that can be implemented for how instruments can play their samples.
