Default Groove Tool

By the look of things, no one is interested for Groove tools.

To get started
https://wiki.cockos.com/wiki/index.p...rs_Groove_Tool

(Note there are some issues currently like no swing grid support, only square CC shapes support).

Hi Greg,

Are you trying to get a groove from a midi item?
If so, and its not mentioned in the wiki, the groove that is extracted depends on where the edit cursor is when you press get groove. That's why having a toolbar button to show/hide groove markers really helps to visualize.
That's why the action..groove start to edit cursor...exists.

I use groove tool a lot and I contributed the logic grooves...although when I made them groove tool didn't support dynamics at the time.

To get a grip on how the tool works I would use it from the arrange window.
If I can help let me know.

it is not broken and it works very nicely.... perhaps you can elaborate on what problems you experience?

you need to call up the groove tool from the MAIN actions, but you can also have the MIDI Ed. open and see the changes to either selected items or just to selected notes

+1 I also can't get it to work. A video tutorial or video examples of what it can do and how it can do it would be fantastic!

Is the groove tool still being installed with new versions of Reaper? If so does anybody know how it works?

Groove Tools is installed with SWS extensions, not with Reaper. It works just like instructed in the wiki page apply custom groove that nofish linked to above. Depending on the groove tool settings, it moves notes by a certain amount, specific to the type of selected groove.

If selected groove seems not to do anything, try out different grooves and sensitivity settings.

For some reason it doesn't work if the mouse pointer isn't on the start of the notes, go figure..

That's odd, it doesn't make any difference here.

I wish I could say the same, but after going back and forth with LugNut, he suggested that and its been working only that way. Really annoying, but hey....it is what it is.

No, that is wrong. The problem is: Reaper doesn't have
a proper Groove-Tool. There are these two existing:

1. Groove-Tool MPL

2. Groove-Tool of Fingers

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

While I appreciate the effort and labour both developers put
into their script, I still prefer a native version.

The reason for this is that the two script add-ons do not allow
me a simple and straightforward workflow. Something's not
working - and after every small update I always have to worry
if my groove is still right.

That's why I strongly advocate to implement a simple
groove-template mapping natively.

Yeah, native groove quantization very briefly appeared in a Reaper major alpha version (4.0 alpha iirc).
Since then I'm hoping it's coming back at some point lol.

Ah yes. That was it. I vaguely remember notation doing one of those disappearing acts as well at one point.
