I hear you guys ( and MFB ), but man there is something about quantization that puts me off. I don't know, maybe its the cookie cutter approach or whatever.
I use Logic Platinum sometimes when working some of my demos, and even though the quant function program is flexible enough to quant the track in many many ways, its still lacks life..
I realize this is a very personal POV.. not that I dont love some of programmed tracks out there...
what was the point I was making? ... never mind this post.
