it's very nice being able to communicate with an engineer!
concerning the 'portamento': I was speaking about the, as it sounds to me, built-in ramping up the pitch, without any external modulator, of the pitch-algorithm, when the detector is 'unsure'. For example the HOG is spot on, no upward pitch-bend to the target note. Might be completely different technologies and the PF can do so much more, just wanted to point this out and ask.
great, that the phase-thing mentioned above will be fixed!
