A tool for adding 'groove' or 'swing' to quantized patterns by moving notes forward or backward in time.

sliders: each slider corresponds to a line. Notes on this line will be moved forward or backward depending on the value of the slider (and the range value).

cycle length: the number of lines after which the groove pattern (set by the sliders) repeats itself. If the value is 4, slider 1 will affect lines 0, 4, 8, 12... ; slider 2 will affect lines 1, 5, 9, 13... etc.

range: the maximum amount (in lines) that a note will be moved forward or backward in time.

In some cases, a note will be overwritten by a subsequent note. If you find that notes are dropped, try enabling 'delete note off events', or disabling 'don't move notes to other columns'. (These setting will interfere with note lengths, so they work best for percussive sounds.)

Example: say your pattern has 4 lines per beat, and you have a simple hihat pattern with notes on lines 0,2,4,... etc. To add 'swing' to this pattern, set cycle length to 4, range to 1, and move the 3rd slider up. Try different values until you like what you hear.
