Is there a way to get Vienna Ensemble / VSL SE to do pitch bends, portamenti (smooth glissandi), and tuning changes, either in Finale, or in a DAW?
In Finale, when using the Garritan instruments, there's an easy way to re-tune an instrument, at least if one wants the entire instrument retuned. One simply sets the "pitchwheel" setting for playback, assigned to an expression mark.
Similarly, if I can write a glissando between notes, and Finale plays the notes for Garritan instruments like a "slide."
However, with VSL instruments, the pitchwheel setting has no effect. Similarly, if I write a glissando, I get lots of notes, like a scale, rather than a smooth "slide" like a get with the Garritan instruments.
Surely there must be a way to change the tunings of VSL instruments and to get a "slide" effect?
If not in Finale, is there a way to do it when using other software?
