Look Ahead

Our Look Ahead feature might not look like much on the surface, but it can be a great time saver for you!! Anyone who has worked with choir syllables knows how tedious and time consuming it can be to edit the MIDI so that the syllables play back in time. Now you can simply 100% quantize your phrase and not worry about spending hours micro-editing your MIDI for your Genesis syllables to play more in time.
