I don't know if it'll work, but you might read up on Beat Detective (if you have 6.7 or up) and see if you can turn the MIDI file into a DigiGroove and add some swing. I've not tried it myself.

Good luck.

Oh -- it's page 317 in my manual.

thanks i looked it up and that seems like the way to go. it seems there are a couple of ways to create swing. in the midi operations menu there is Quantize and Groove Quantize. the first allows you to set manual tick offsets and swing percentages. the latter allows you to create swing based on groove templates. excellent! now i just have to experiment...
