    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 SWING

    This tool adds swing to your MIDI by stretching and squishing all notes between the Swing Anchors you set forward to the next beat division (positive swing), or backward to the previous one (negative swing). Unlike most swings, this device allows you to set these anchor points as polyrhythmic, polymetric, non dyadic or tuplet note values. This allows for non conventional swing patterns. And rhythms that, while they are based on the concept of swing, bear little resemblance to traditional swing rhythms.

    The top of the MIDI tool is the “Swing Anchor” section. Set your swing anchors here. To get polyrhythmic, polymetric, or tuplet swing anchors, use polyrhythm mode. This allows you to set your Swing Anchors with the “Beat Unit” parameter, which is divided by the “Subdivision” parameter and multiplied by the “# of Beats” parameters. In “Decimal” mode, the “# of Beats” parameter multiplies the “Beat Unit” by a decimal value. 

    Keep in mind that the Swing Anchors are the points that stay the still, meaning they’re twice the length of the note value that is swung. For example, to get swung 16th notes, you would set your anchor points to 1/8th notes.

    Since it moves all notes between the anchors, not just the odd notes on the grid, it can also be used for interesting stretched and squished rhythms.

    This tool has two swing modes:

    In “Linear”mode it swings all notes between the Swing Anchors by moving them linearly toward the beat divisions on either side of it. At 100% or -100% it quantizes the notes forward or backward to the next beat division.

    In “Curve” mode it swing all notes between beat divisions by applying a curve, moving some notes more than others based on their position between the anchors. This can make for even wonkier swings.

    This device is great for generating unique rhythms out of simple rhythms. Irregular rhythms with some logic behind them
