A simple question of rhythm and timing


    Apr 02 2008 | 12:17 am
    I'm trying to break away from keeping the bar subdivided by the same amount through a patch but when it comes from changing from a 1/16th subdivision to a 1/32nd subdivision I can only manage things that sound a little forced.
    Can anyone help with any ideas to make this simple patch sound less forced and obtain a smoother transition between the two subdivisions?
    max v2;
    Thanks

      I wouldn't say this grooves, more like marches.

      That's an excellent method.
      I'm not sure why it makes all the difference in timing considering the similarity. Somehow though it feels less forced... but why remains a mystery to me!

      I still think my method is a little more efficient, as it avoids a
      multiply, and I find it easier to understand, but your method sounds
      about the same if you change the [ >~ .5] to a [

      I've been playing around with the awesome method you suggested Chris and I was wondering if you could help me with this?
      If I wanted the beat to go between one division and the next after a bang from edge but I can't seem to do so?
      For example this doesn't go from one division to another after each bang....why?
