Eli…

Hey @Eli,
The reason that `control s, note: nte.tick, note_slide: 1` is causing an error is that it is attempting, mid-note, to change the synth from playing a pitched note to a rest (`:r`). It seems to me (though I could be wrong) that this is an edge case that `control` is not intended to handle.

Thanks Ethan.

Well, at least if I do something wrong, I do it properly.

Eli…

Okay, so this seems to work… I just wanted to understand the
code in this post, and see if I could put the slide into it…

Now I hear it play, I think I could probably manage a good imitation of Harold
Faltermyers ‘Axel F’ track… but I probably wont try.
