Is there an articulation for K2 that removes the bow attack from a string passage?

I'm trying to emulate a player moving the bow smoothly across the instrument without re-bowing every note.

I imagined the performance legato presets in VSL Horizon Chamber strings would emulate this technique, but when I play legatos I get a beautiful but unwanted slide up or down.

When I shorten the note lengths to elimate the slide, passages become altogether to distinct, and the note transistions seem to obvious.

In short - not lush . . .

I use: VSL Horizon Chamber Strings (converted to K2 script format)

not exactly what you're looking for but a workaround might be to use samples with the attack removed, create an envelope with a gradual attack, then attach the attack time to a controller (if continuous, you can vary the attack time to suite the musical application). i don't know how to do that in k2 but i've done it in gigastudio and converted it so it's possible.
