Viewing topic "XS Rack: How to create a harpist’s typical glissando using Arpeggio?"

Searching for specific instructions or suggestions from a Motif guru!

I use Multi’s on my Motif XS Rack quite extensively for live shows and am familiar with doing splits, layers, assign outputs, effects, “switching” from one Voice to another via changes in velocity, etc. Haven’t done much of anything with Arpeggios yet, and am hoping to shorten the learning curve if anyone can help. Here’s my immediate goal:

- Use the Arpeggio function on a harp Voice (in a Multi) so that I can hold down a chord or group of notes with one hand - and produce what sounds like a harpist doing a typical glissando up into several octaves. Something that sounds like a two-handed upward-cascading gliss would be great. Then when I stop sustaining those notes, have a convincing end to the gliss that trails off. Perhaps inserting a delay effect would help with that?

As a side note, I have done some pentatonic harp glissandos manually for specific songs, by note-shifting the Voice (in the Multi) so that I can gliss up & down the black keys and be in the appropriate key. Just looking for something that sounds more authentic and is automated as well.

Thank you to any knowledgeable person who can help!

I assume you have tried arpeggios 3486, 3487, 3488 and 3489?

If not, check them out.
