Does anyone know what it's called when you arpeggiate strings, like orchestral strings or bells or harps or whatever?
I don't really know how to explain it but to me it sort of sounds like a breeze or a sweep or something
Sufjan Stevens and the Flaming Lips use it alot in the orchestral sounding stuff.

I hope I'm not being to vague.
The reason I'm asking is I'd like to figure out either how to notate this or just program it into FL

Uhhh... Arpeggios?

Not really, because the sound never goes down just up haha. It's kind of like a firework looks or something it builds....




EDIT: I'm going to try and find an example

This is an alright example

An example would reeeeaaaallly help here.

I guess it's just a sweep, but I don't really know how to do it. haha

I just found it. It's called Glissando

Glissando.

How to make it? Notate the start and finish points of the glissando and put a line connecting the two notes and write 'gliss.' above it.

Mannheim Rocket is what came to my mind...but glissando is what you're describing.
