Glissando vs. Portamento
Do you know the difference?
I thought it was two terms for the same thing, arising from different language origins.
Recently discovered they are actually two different techniques.
I am still not sure, but they way I understand it is Glissando is more of a note bend, while Portamento is more of a slide between notes.
Does this sound about right?
I had to do some research because it is labeled differently on different synths, and I think I have even seen both on a synth before, so I figured there might be more to it. Turns out there is.
