Default Portamento plugin for audio?

I know the pitch bend trick, right now i'm automating reapitch formant and pitch by cents, which works fairly well. But anything else out there good for this sort of thing?

I guess i could put the audio into a sampler like kontakt. I just like the workflow of audio sometimes, maybe i should be using ableton live. xD

IDKWTF you're talking about, but have you tried stretch markers or the take pitch envelope?

Portamento AKA glide. The process of rising in pitch over time. May be that is what the OP is talking about.

Well if we're just using it as a fancy term for pitch bend, that's fine.

I guess I was thinking about how a portamento/glide control actually works on a synth. In that case, when you play legato - a note ends after the next note begins - it bends to the new pitch rather than a stepwise jump, but it also suppresses the retrigger of any envelopes involved so that you don't hear the release of the first note or the attack/decay of the second. It's all sustain for as long as you keep playing legato.

And if we're looking to take prerecorded audio and get it to do that - smoothly glide between the notes that it has already played - it's a lot more complicated. I'm thinking it's even more difficult if the material is actually legato to begin with because there you have got the release of the first note overlapping the attack of the next, so you'd have to like get rid of that somehow and then stretch and crossfade somehow.

This probably would best be done by hacking around in Arrange window and probably using both stretch markers and take pitch envelope, but ultimately I'm not sure it's worth the time and effort.
