Swing/Groove

Post by 5parkle5 » Tue Nov 05, 2013 11:32 pm

New to using giada and love it so far!

I would like to propose a swing/groove setting for playback of loops (don't think this would apply to one-shot) by quantizing each drum beat to the nearest step and then delaying the playback of every other step in the sequencer.

Qtractor has implemented this functionality in the piano roll but I would like to adjust the swing in real-time during loop playback.

Sorry I can't provide any code but hopefully this idea inspires someone with more know-how than I.

For more info on this kind of thing, I referenced this article in Attack Magazine: http://www.attackmagazine.com/technique ... ine-swing/

Hi 5parkle5, the swing setting looks very interesting. Great explanatory article as well.
I guess we could merge it with the Euclidean MIDI channel, creating a sort of general MIDI tool for live processing. Many thanks for your suggestion!
