Hi,

If someone could make a tutorial on programming the 8 glide modes in a sequencer pianoroll, I would be happy!!

The frist two glide modes are the ones you may find on other synths.
#3 to 8 are rather exotic ones.
These are normally only used for experimental style, or for very special situations or playing styles.

1: normal glide
Glide is always on. Of cause depending on the set glide rate. Obvious, right?
This is the mode the Minimoog D and most other synths have.

2: legato glide
glide is only active while you play legato.
Example:
you press the first note and hold it -> no glide
press a second note and hold it -> glide will get active
release the second note -> glide while the pitch changes to the first note still held

3: legato glide to second only
you press the first note and hold it -> no glide
press a second note and hold it -> glide will get active
release the second note -> no glide while the pitch changes to the first note still held

4: legato glide back to first only
you press the first note and hold it -> no glide
press a second note and hold it -> no glide
release the second note -> glide while the pitch changes to the first note still held

5: legato first note

6: mode 4+5 combined

7: legato glide back to first off

8: legato glide changing
same as mode #2, but here the glide is only active every second time you press and release a second note.

Feel free to add the missing descriptions here.
keep on turning these Moog knobs

Sequence:
Prodigy * Minimoog (1979) * Voyager * MF102 * MF103 * MF104z * MP201 * Taurus 3 * Minitaur * Sub Phatty * MF105 * Minimoog reissues with MUSEs * One

You might find it easier to grasp what the glide modes are doing by playing the Moog from a keyboard rather than programming from a piano roll. I find that each mode leads to a different playing style.

Tills desciptons in the previous post are so clear and simple you shouldn't need a tutorial.
