    Well strangely enough you slide the pitch.
    Do it however you can, or are you looking for help finding the pitch slide function in your sequencer / synth?

    answered your own question there matey

    portamento could also be used but that would be slightly less dynamic unless you automated the portamento time

    u can also use progs like wavelab to create "sliding bass".Use the pitch bend feature.draw in a lovely shape.bam!!also good for long winding rising sounds.
    then resample back into your host. :razz:

    hmm, bit of a hazzle maybe. Just doing it in your own sequencer would be the easiest.
