Edit the Created Accompaniment Style
Change the Rhythmic Feel — Groove and Dynamics
These versatile features give you a wide variety of tools for changing the rhythmic feel of your created accompaniment
style. The operations here apply to step 4 on page 109.
Use these to select the
desired edit operation.
Executes the Groove operation. After
the operation is completed, this button
changes to [UNDO], letting you
restore the original data if you're not
satisﬁed with the Groove results. The
Undo function only has one level; only
the previous operation can be undone.
Speciﬁes the beats to which Groove timing is to be applied. In other words, if "8 Beat" is selected, Groove timing is
applied to the 8th notes; if "12 Beat" is selected, Groove timing is applied to 8th-note triplets.
Actually changes the timing of the beats (speciﬁed in the ORIGINAL BEAT parameter above) to the selected value. For
example, when ORIGINAL BEAT is set to "8 Beat" and BEAT CONVERTER is set to "12," all 8th notes in the section are
shifted to 8th-note triplet timing. The "16A" and "16B" Beat Converter which appear when ORIGINAL BEAT is set to "12
Beat" are variations on a basic 16th-note setting.
Produces a "swing" feel by shifting the timing of the back beats, depending on the ORIGINAL BEAT parameter above.
For example, if the speciﬁed ORIGINAL BEAT value is 8th notes, the Swing parameter will selectively delay the 2nd, 4th,
6th, and 8th beats of each measure to create a swing feel. The settings "A" through "E" produce different degrees of
swing, with "A" being the most subtle and "E" being the most pronounced.
Selects a variety of Groove "templates" to be applied to the selected section. The "PUSH" settings cause certain beats to
be played early, while "HEAVY" settings delay the timing of certain beats. The numbered settings (2, 3, 4, 5) determine
which beats are to be affected. All beats up to the speciﬁed beat —but not including the ﬁrst beat — will be played early
or delayed (for example, the 2nd and 3rd beats, if "3" is selected). In all cases, "A" types produce minimum effect, "B"
types produce medium effect, and "C" types produce maximum effect.
