Default Trombones legato slide problem

Hi,

I'm trying to make the Hollywood Brass Diamond trombones slide up a perfect 5th as slowly as possible. I'm using the 3TB legato slide patch and according to the manual I should be able to control the portamento slide by velocity (see attached screenshots). But I can only hear a fast slur between notes less than a perfect 5th apart. I also tried to turn on the portamento script but I can't figure out how to make it work properly. Has anyone experienced a similar issue? Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

Specs:
Macbook Pro 2017 QuadCore 2,8 GHz, 16 GB RAM
Focusrite Clarett 8 pre USB
Logic Pro X
Composer Cloud Plus

What you are wanting to do is physically impossible for the instrument. Thus, it wont be sampled.

A trombone slide all the way in is called 1st position. At full extension it is called 7th position. The interval between 1st and 7th position is a tritone.

You could possibly do this using the pitch bend midi message.

I see, that it explains it. I better keep it within its natural range then. Very useful info. Thanks!
