Slow String Gliss?

Recommended Posts

I have a chromatic string line that looks like this:

I would like to use a slow glissando to move from note to note. That is, the beginning of every new note should be on pitch, but then the note should immediately start to slide down until the next measure when it's half a step lower. I am using this in an electronic piece, so I'm mainly interested in the effect rather than a perfect replica of a string performance.

 

What is the easiest way to achieve this effect? Is it through Pitch Shifter --> automate Cents shift? Or is there a much easier way?

 

 

... BETTER YET, if I could just have one continuous sound slowly shifting down from the highest to the lowest note over the four or so measures, that'd be perfect!

1. In the (Software?) Instrument playing this, set the pitch bend range to 1, -1 and use the pitchwheel to perform the glissando's.

2. You can use automation on the pitch parameter(s)

3. In fact there are myriads of ways of achieving this, but it depends very much on the instrument and settings used. It would help if you let us know which Software Instrument you're using.

In the source modulation section of your Kontakt instrument, set the Pitch Bend value to the range of your 4 bar slide and draw in PitchBend in the Hypereditor.
