New version 2.0.2 : a test of glissando playback
I've been waiting for this glissando playback feature for a long time, and finally there it is!
I tested it immediately, but it seems not to perfectly match my needs.(BTW It's still a great job for the developers. NICE!)
This is the test. I found out there are four types of glissando to choose from.
Chromatic: gliss by half notes.
White keys: gliss on white notes.
Black keys: gliss on black notes.
Diatonic: gliss for less notes, then play the second note directly.
I created the glissandi in different keys(C Major, bA Major)
Well, for the first three types they are the same. But when it comes to the last one, it plays the scale of the major currently using.
Eg. In C major it plays (CDEFGABC then the extremely high C, as I typed in the third beat
In bA major it plays (C bD bE F G bA bB C then the extremely high C, as I typed in the third beat
I was expecting this change, but this type only plays several notes, and then jumped to the high note.
I am hoping if there could be an option to play full glissando in a different key of major scale. Does anyone have solution or idea? Or is it possible to be improved in the newer version?
I've played some pop pianos and I've seen black keys glissandi, which seems not to appear often in classics.
Eg. black keys glissando in Reflection/by VK/in Taiwan/concert version
Chromatic glissandi can't be performed on piano but some other instruments (as I know)
The need for playback of full glissando in a different key of major scale comes from this:

Hard to hear the sound, so here's a part of the full score.
And...BONUS!! a bunch of glissandi
