Import groove templates

You can import third-party groove templates, such as the DNA Groove Templates made by the Canadian firm WC Music Research.

Import third-party groove templates

  1. Choose File > Import > Other.

  2. Choose “DNA Groove Template files” from the Open File pop-up menu, select the file you want to import, then click Import.

    The groove templates are added as MIDI regions on the selected track.

  3. To add the groove templates to the Quantize pop-up menu, select a groove template and then choose Make Groove Template from the Quantize pop-up menu of the Region inspector.

    Note: The quantization templates are saved with the project and can be used, even when the project is played on a computer that doesn’t have the corresponding DNA Groove Templates on its hard disk.
