Note expression input device

I’ve not created a note expression input device yet, because I’m playing on any vsti track with all inputs, including my midi guitar, foot pedals set to cc1 and cc11, nanokeys kbds, without hassles

Each track uses note expression for pitch bend and data is recorded at note level instead of controllers lower row events

But when making a slide on an interval of, say, 4 notes, each note is heard in the slide, instead of having a kind of fretless sound from starting note till the target note
I wonder if using the “use for tuning” option in the note expression input device is of some help for this purpose, or if tweaking in the vsti patch settings for bends is the path to look at ?
