Glissando Button

Every spec I’ve seen references the Glissando button on the Striso, but I haven’t seen any reference to how it actually works. So, how does it actually work?


Thanks for the question.
While the glissando button is pressed, instead of triggering a new note when played, the pitch of the last played note is averaged with the new note, weighted with the pressure. This makes it possible to slide from one note to another smoothly in any desired speed, either very quick (portamento) or slower (glissando), depending on the press/release time.

In the MIDI output the slide is sent as a pitch bend, which means it can only be used in MPE (one note per channel) mode. In monophonic mode glissando is always enabled.
