Hear swing on straight notation?

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to hear "swing time" but leave the midi notation alone?

It's so hard to work on a swing midi part in Cakewalk because if you quantize to swing it alters the notation. In Sibelius or other notation programs I believe there is a feature to be able to "hear" swing notes but notation stays straight. It just adds the word swing to the score as you would in real life.

Any tricks for that?

Not near my setup, but a quick solution could be:

Duplicate the midi track, quantize that one to straight and use that one to look at and listen to the other.. I'll have to check it out though.  Kinda limited scoring wise...somebody else might have a more elegant solution.

Actually, just realized I can use the quantize midi plugin, that won't affect the notation. The question is, can I automate it?

Going to test.

Thanks
