 +====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.
