How to Use Portamento to Create Slide Notes in FL Studio

This is an older video when I released my FL Studio Beginner’s series many years back, but is still incredibly relevant for how to slide notes in FL Studio with portamento.

How to Slide Notes in FL Studio

FL Studio allows you to easily slide notes with a feature called portamento.

If you’re wondering what portamento does, it allows you to slide (pitch bend) between notes.

Portamento is incredibly powerful for creating leads which sound full in dance music (as you heard the beat in the video)
