Hi guys!

I got my KingKorg today and I am learning to get used to the instrument- so far so good, but the portamento is kinda strange in its behaviour.
I don´t like it at all!

I´ll try to explain:
I activate the porta and choose my desired time.
Then I press the (for example) C note. The tone comes out, as expected.
Then I release the C note and wait for 3 seconds, for example.
I am going up to the E note, press it, and the tone is gliding up, which I don´t want it to!

I want the portamento only triggered when playing legato.

Is there any possibility, or do i have to live with that?
If this is not changeable, this could be a cause for me to sell this very nice instrument, because this is a no-go.

Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english, as I am from Germany Smile

This from Page 33 of the parameter guide:

Controlling time-varying change
CC#64: Damper pedal [Bn, 40, vv]
(Default: Damper pedal)
This message controls the damper effect (hold), which allows a note to
continue sounding even after you release your hand from the keyboard.
A value of “on” (127) or “off” (0) is transmitted when you press or release the
damper pedal. When this is received, the damper will turn on or off.
CC#65: Portamento switch [Bn, 41, vv]
(Default: PORTAMENTO button)
CC#05: Portamento time [Bn, 05, vv]
(Default: PORTA.TIME knob)
These messages control the portamento effect which causes the pitch to
change smoothly when you play legato. The portamento switch message turns
the effect on/off, and the portamento time message controls the speed of the
change.
On the KingKORG, using the front panel PORTAMENTO button will transmit a
portamento switch message with a value of “on” (127) or “off” (0). Operating
the PORTA. TIME knob will transmit a portamento time message (0–127).

So it certainly looks possible, not something I've personally ever tried. Suggest you download the parameter guide which will help you dig into the deeper features of the KK. There's a fair bit more to it than first apparent.
