Portamento and Legato
« on: June 10, 2021, 01:51:42 am »
How do I switch between mono, legato and poly? Also, I tried to add portamento using the main lag settings, but it has no effect. Any help would be appreciated.

The playmodes is set in ZONES in the VOICE section. Please study the this.

To create Portamento you use the LAG generator.
Choose KEYBD as input for the LAG and set the rate. There are 3 settings beside this where one is LEGATO.
To make the LAG work on the Pitch you activate LAG for the VCO independently in the PAGE2 section. This will create a Glissando. If you deactivate the KEYBOARD for VCOs in the same section, then you get a smooth Portamento.
Please study all this as well.

Hope this helps.
