Generate MIDI groove pattern

Use this simple tool to construct a midi bar containing 4 bars of the rhythm pattern you select. The resulting midi files should be easy to turn into a groove pattern template in typical DAWs like Logic or StudioOne.

Once you've created such a groove pattern, simply make sure everything in your song is quantized to this pattern. But don't mix! If you use one of these patterns, all your instruments must follow that same pattern.
