TIME TO GET CHOPPING YOUR GROOVES…
Groovification TWO is an awesome collection of “Chopper” groove files. Included are quarter, eighth, and sixteenth-note patterns.
Note: Due to the increasing complexity of possibilities, there are comparatively few quarter note patterns, and a great many sixteenth note patterns.
Chopper Grooves – Are similar to the “autopan chop” technique; however, they are not simple alternating on-off patterns but rather chop out only select note intervals, for interesting syncopated rhythmic variation. For example, if you have a drum clip you want to make a bit more funky, you could try out different chopper grooves on it to quickly hear what many different rhythmic patterns will sound like, and select the one you like best. Alternately, you could record the audio into another track as you swap grooves for variant patterning.
For live performance fun, drop the same chopper groove onto every clip in your set, start with “global groove amount” set to zero (mapped to a midi controller), and impose the chop groove effect when you want to, hot-swapping it for different patterns at whim
