I really like the new update, a lot. Looks like they removed the Preview sample button (on the presets page). Is there another way to preview the loaded sample before it is manipulated by Quanta?

Hello everyone! Does Quanta support portamento (a pitch sliding from one note to another)? Which parameter determines how long it takes to slide between notes?

Could be wrong as I never use portamento, but I don't think so. Your best bet is to try out the demo and experiment with it :wink:

It does support pitch bend (and MPE). "BEND - the signal for the MIDI pitch-bend wheel. This signal is bipolar; pulling the wheel towards you generates negative values, so that you can bend note flat by connecting this mod source to GRAIN TUNE and/or OSCILLATOR TUNE. A modulation setting of 10 will give you a pitch bend range of two octaives, one octave in either direction."

Your DAW should allow you to automate the pitch bend to determine the time it takes to slide between notes. Some DAWs probably have a function to make midi equivalent to portamento by generating the appropriate pitch bend slides between all time-adjacent notes in a selection.

Thank you for the link. I guess this workaround is suitable for some situations. I'm into microtonal music though, and this method seems quite complicated in my workflow.

I use Cockos Reaper. I'll try to find more info on this topic.
