Enabling swing playback project-wide

You can enable swing playback project-wide using any of the default swing ratios or custom swing ratios you have created in the project.


You have created any custom rhythmic feels that you want to use for swing playback.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-P to open Playback Options.
  2. In the category list, click Timing.
  3. In the Rhythmic Feel section, select the rhythmic feel you want from the Default rhythmic feel menu.
  4. Click Apply, then Close.


All pairs of either eighth notes or 16th notes in your project are played back with the selected swing ratio, depending on the swing unit for the selected ratio. This includes if the second beat is divided into two, such as two 16th notes in an eighth note swing.
