Is it possible to adjust the speed of a slide/glissando?

• May 26, 2020 - 14:49

Currently creating a glissando between two notes appears to just equally divide the first note into however many notes occur in between it and the target note. This creates quite an unnatural sound, especially for guitar.

Is there a way to manually adjust the timing/ratio of a slide? On guitar I would naturally hold the initial note a moment then slide into the target quickly.

Yes, I think we are saying the same thing - slide/glissandi are the same thing whereas a bend is something else. Bends aren't an issue.

I've been attempting to use the piano roll to tweak the gliss playback as you suggest, but it looks like MuseScore makes it uneditable. All of the steps of the gliss are treated as one note, and changing it's length or start time only affects the very last step of the gliss.

Splits and tied notes on a hidden instrument it is! Thanks.
