Extract Midi Grooves (Cubase 8)

Hi all,

How do I extract grooves from midi files???

And add them to build up unique quantize options in the quantize area of the arrangement window (i.e. where you choose either 1/16, 1/8 or 1/32 triplets etc).

In previous versions of cubase I could achieve this by importing midi files and using the ‘part to groove’ function if my memory serves me correctly. However this option doesnt seem to be available in cubase 8

Also, if anyone knows how to extract grooves from audio files in cubase 8, this would be massively appreciated :slight_smile:

Kind Regards and Merry xmas to all those who celebrate the festive holiday xx

Just drag the MIDI onto the Quantize Panel, then you can save it as a quantize preset.

To extract grooves from audio, read pg483 of the manual to extract MIDI from audio, then do as above to convert it to a groove.

so please can anyone tell me how to export midi groove preset from cubase and save it like *.GRV file?
