 //To save pages and your time, we encourage you to experiment with the other Rhythm types for the Melody Generator. The Probabilistic Rhythm is one of the most useful rhythm types for melodies (we’ve done extensive tests to see which rhythm type should be the default, and the Probabilistic Rhythm always produced the most useful results, and quickly. Though ALL of the Rhythm types will generate something useful. Notice how (after selecting the other Rhythm types) that all of the parameters might be similar, with slight changes to accommodate the legato and/or monophonic performance of melody.// //To save pages and your time, we encourage you to experiment with the other Rhythm types for the Melody Generator.

 +====Modern Chord Pattern Generator====
 +
 +Create EDM chords with this phrase generator! For best results use '​Modern Rhythm'​ or '​Modern Random Rhythm'​ as the rhythm generator or you may edit the rhythm manually.

 +====Rhythm Mapper====
 +
 +You can convert any phrase to a '​Rhythm Mapper'​ which lets you use a different rhythm pattern for the phrase. This is available only in the '​Convert Phrase To Generator'​ menu in the Phrase Inspector.
 +
 +===Direct 1:1 Mapping===
 +
 +The rhythm events are mapped to phrase events. It is not the rhythm length that counts but the number of events in the rhythm. First the algorithm locates '​events'​ in the original phrase. An event has a position and a length. Events are when note(s) begin and last until the next note/event. Multiple notes (e.g. a chord) may belong to a single event.
 +Also all rhythm notes are considered as an '​event'​. Then the rhythm events are applied to the phrase, by shortening phrase notes if needed. Please note: a faster rhythm may change the phrase length. E.g. when you have 4 quarter notes, and you apply a rhythm consisting of eighth notes, the phrase becomes half the length. So the phrase length may change when using "​Direct 1:1 Mapping"​.
 +
 +===Preserve Phrase Shape===
 +
 +This functionality is the same as the Apply Rhythm variation. The phrase length does not change.
