By default, the directory is this: Macintosh HD/Users//Documents/Native Instruments/User Content/Kontakt
If it is not there, It is possible the folder doesn’t exist. Luckily, there is an easy workaround. A good fellow at Sample Cast supplied me with this video explaining a trick to fixing this issue. Check out the how to video below and then paste all the files included in the SK50D Snapshot folder to the new directory outlined in this video.
The “glide” function on this synth adds a subtle automatic pitch bend to the transient of sound. This control is polarized. Middle is off, down is negative and up is positive. I mirrored the original design of the original synth. The reason the toggle is on when down is to let you know its on!!!
However, you might be looking for the portamento feature (which is ironically called glide these days too) Remember the original synth was created 40 years ago but that’s what they called this effect.
I did program Portamento in the synth as well but it’s not as obvious to control, you can check out this tutorial on how to use it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivKYcHpaUn8

The “glide” function is not the same as “Portamento” on this synth. The glide feature adds a subtle automatic pitch bend to the transient of sound. This control is polarized.
