The Shift parameter alters note positions to play earlier or later. It lets you achieve subtle to dramatic effects, depending on its amplitude. From a gentle "humanizer" to expressive rubato effects (steal-time), everything is possible. In the extreme, entirely distorted phrases can be created.


The parameter is Polyphonic. It can contain multiple values at the same position.

The parameter supports custom templates. You can save and recall Parameter Templates from its right-click menu or the main Parameter menu.

Using the fader (slider) on the Parameter Inspector sets a particular value for the entire duration of the container (constant). If you want to continuously automate this parameter, you need to draw values in the Parameter View.


Drop any parameter with a curve-like shape. The form is preserved as far as possible and values are scaled into range.

Instead of drag and drop, you can also use copy and paste.

The parameter can be applied to the current Figure with the right-click menu or Parameter > Save To Figure, which will permanently alter the figure and clear the parameter when done.

Note: This feature is available with the Express and Pro editions.
