Playback Properties

• Jan 19, 2020 - 23:51

Playback properties for slide, slur and tie would be GREAT. On playback, two notes connected with a slide, slur or tie always sound like individually picked, plucked, struck, tongued . . . notes. (No good substitutes; e.g., glissando or arpeggio are not an accurate/good "substitute" for a slide). Thank you.


With a slur they might/should be separate (although legato playback is missing a good implementation indeed).
Tied notes do sound as a single note, so start by making sure you've actually used a tie and not a slur to connect them.

Slides indeed have no playback currently. Glissandi do and the portamento playback style for it is under construction (see #127341: Add Glissando playback style portamento).
If the range of the slide is small enough (less than 3.5 semitones) then you could use a hidden bend to get the playback effect.
