    Standing right behind you!

    I'm programming some drums for a song I'm working on. It has a swing beat - but how do I get MIDI to swing it with quantization?

    I'm using Cubase 5. I tried the dotted and triplets and it gets sloppy, not a tight swing. And the bass drum and bass synth (MIDI) won't lock. They quantize different even with the same settings.

    I haven't used cubase in decades, but you should be able to generate a groove template from the drum pattern.

    Then you can apply the groove template to your other midi tracks, it will help them conform to the feel of the pattern.

    Some tweaking my be required.
