I have a few questions about Portamento time mode:
I understand the distinction between rate 1 and time 1 as follows :
With rate 1, it will take longer to complete a slide from notes that are farther apart compared to notes that are closer together.
With time 1, It will take the same amount of time to complete a slide between two notes no matter how close or far apart they are.
Assuming that's correct, my second question:
The reference manual explanation for rate 2 and time 2 includes the phrase:
" within an octave."
I could use some clarification on what that means. Doesn't mean the portamento effect will only work between two notes that are within an octave each other? That would be my best guess, but my little experiments didn't seem too support that. It's seem to work no matter the interval between the two notes.
