Shuffle, Swing - B-Step's groovy Heart!


With B-Step’s shuffle feature you will get the right groove in your set by a few slider changes. The shuffle feature is a global parameter and will be added to each bar or/and step.

Shuffle Grid

To enable shuffle you have to set the first slider from the left (“shfl”) to 16th, 8th or 4th. This will define the shuffle grid size or disable the whole shuffle feature (“OFF”).

By setting the grid size to 16th, every second 16th will be modified (like in the picture above) - 8th will modify every second 8th and 4th every second 4th. The setting of the grid alone will not modify anything - the modifications will be done by the following parameters: Shuffle Amount, Velocity Manipulation and Duration Manipulation.

Shuffle Amount (“>>”)

The shuffle amount moves the trigger point of each step in the shuffle grid into the future - relative to its original trigger point in 1/96th steps resolution (a clock step).

This is the basic setting to get some groove into your set.

See also: Step Delay, Microtiming has the same functionality but for each step.

Velocity Manipulation

The velocity manipulation changes (decrease) the velocity of the steps in the shuffle grid.

Duration Manipulation

Changes the duration of the steps in the shuffle grid - they can be longer or shorter than its original step duration.



Note: If you don’t have a step enabled in the Shuffle Grid there will be absolutely no effect!
