Okay, I generally like to put some thought and practice into my problems before I some here to ask about them, but I'm totally clueless. What I want to do is make a monophonic synth that glides from one note to the next if a note-on is sent before a note-off. Portamento glide, I think, is what it's called. I'm watching a tutorial about it on YouTube, but it makes no sense to me. Could someone explain? I understand the problem of the MIDI language not being able to send messages at the same time, so I see why he's delaying things. I just feel like there's a lot of gibberish here that's really not needed, such as using so many [t] objects and sending a bunch of lists.
It just seems like there should be an easier way to do this.
