Default Help With Groove Templates!

I've been trying to incorporate groove templates into my MIDI drum tracks, but I'm not sure if I'm doing it correctly.

I record a simple kick and snare pattern with the hat on every 1/8 note. Then I highlight the entire bar of the MIDI track and go to the groove template menu. From there I select MPC Swing 65%. The timing box is checked. I hit apply. Is that it???

When I hit apply, nothing seems to happen, but maybe my mind is deceiving me. I can barely hear a difference even though I know its subtle.

BTW, is there a step-by-step tutorial on this in the PT manual?

Thanks for any help!

That's pretty much it, some of the grove templates aren't real extreme. Zoom in on the highlighted area and check to see if the notes shifted at all from the grid.

Oh, so the MIDI notes will physically move?

Yeah, they'll shift a bit on the midi grid depending on which grove template you choose. Sometimes, if you can't find a grove template you like you can go into slip mode and create your own "feel" by moving the notes slightly behind or in front of the grid line. Sometimes it helps to tap on a microphone in the rhythm you want, or use something you can record to get some good peaks, and then line the midi notes up with that. Once you get something your happy with, I believe you can use beat detective on the midi track and extract your own grove template.
