    INSTALLATION:

    To install MIDI Tools, first double-click to decompress the ZIP archive it arrived in. !

    In Live’s Browser, navigate to the User Library in Places

    Then find the MIDI Tools folder located there (2). If you don’t see a folder called MIDI Tools in your User Library, simply create it yourself.

    We’d advice adding two subfolders for Generators and Transformers for neatness.

    Finally, drag our Generators to the Generators subfolder and our Transformers to the Transformers subfolder

    Live should automatically detect them and within the next few minutes, they should appear in the dropdown chooser of Live’s Generators or Transformers in the corresponding tab of any MIDI Clip’s Note Editor.

    PLEASE NOTE: Once installed MIDI Tools, since they are not Max MIDI Effects, cannot be dragged and dropped onto MIDI tracks: they can only be loaded by the Generator and Transformer tabs of the MIDI clip editor.

    WEIRD QUANTIZER

    This MIDI transformation tool allows you to quantize your MIDI to polyrhythms and other odd beat divisions. This is great for generating off tempo and experimental rhythms.

    The device has 2 different modes for setting the quantize value. 

    In “Polyrhythm” mode, you set the base “Beat Unit”, then set the “# of Beats” parameter and the “Subdivision” parameter. By default, its linked to Live’s grid, but you can also set it to custom time values. The number of Beat Units selected will be subdivided by the Subdivision parameter to set the polyrhythmic quantization grid. For example when the beat division is 1/4, the “# of Beats” is 5, and the “Subdivision” parameter is set to 3, that will snap all notes to a grid the size of three evenly spaced notes between 5 quarter notes, a 3/5 polyrhythm.

    In “Decimal” mode, the “Beat Unit” you set is multiplied by a floating point number to set the quantization grid. For example if your beat division is set to 1/4 and your “# of Notes” parameter is set to 1.29, notes with be quantized to every 1.29 quarter notes. You can use this to set more irrational beat divisions than in “Polyrhythm” mode.

    There’s a “Note Off” toggle to set whether you want to quantize note offs to that same grid. 

    There’s also an “Amount” parameter that controls the quantization amount, allowing you to fade between unquantified and quantized MIDI.
