Glide sometimes doesn’t reset with chords

Glide sometimes doesn’t reset with chords

So I have the glide set to Fixed time with no release, but sometimes it still skips out on a chord when being played.

Is this a user error?  Like is there something I’m missing with my patch?

when this happens to me, it's because of voice card allocation.  each time you press a key, it plays the note on the next available voice card.  even if you let up and play the same note again, it goes to the next voice card (I hear this aspect is different on the P5). now when it comes to glide, if you play a note on voice card 4, the glide starts on the note most recently played on voice card 4.  if it was the same note, you get no glide.  depending on how consistent your fingering is, you can get chords that don't move at all.

a lot of times I'll turn the volume off and play the lowest root note on my keyboard six times real fast, so I can turn it back on and play six high notes that all have the maximum possible glide distance.
