Default guitar style pitchbend

I have an audio (not MIDI) track of a guitar solo that is very inexpressive - I'd like to add some pitch bending and vibrato via automation.....
Is this possible in Reaper?
Thanks.....

If you can't find an automation solution for this, I'd be happy to take at shot at recording something for you if you can post the audio somewhere.

The simplest one would be using the pitch envelope I guess. May not sound convincing though, but worth a try.

See this post where I tested actual played vibrato against one I automated...

Personally, I think it's doable enough without issue.

I'm primarily interested in pitch bends - ie stretching up to and/or down from a pitch

vibrato when the term is used properly, is pitchbending.

Quote:
vi·bra·to
/vəˈbrädō/


a rapid, slight variation in pitch in singing or playing some musical instruments, producing a stronger or richer tone.
Portamento is not vibrato but a slide/bend of some duration to another note if that helps.

p^Which is what what I posted is. Portamento is not vibrato, it's a slide/bend to the next note if that helps.
