I’m trying to reproduce the slide effect of a tb303 with a monophonic synth that doesn’t have any.
No glide option. The synth in question, a 3900 microvolt from Pittsburgh Modular (I love this synth but I also really like the glissendos) is sequenced by an Elektron digitakt.
I can using a cc LFO to mimic a glide, but it’s a pain to calculate and match note pitches and cc values. I thought maybe it would be easier if the midihub could do it for me. What do you think?
In a sort of monophonic mode, a note played while a first one is working would trigger the glide. The midihub could transform the values of the two notes into cc or pitchwheel values and would slide from first to second in an adjustable time. A MIDI slew limiter.
Otherwise I imagine it’s possible to make this option using several pipes including the LFO, transform, dispatch… But I’m not sure I can match the first and second note to properly trigger the portamento.
