The Monophonic and Polyphonic modes use constant TCE mode so there could be some transient smearing if you choose to use those Algorithms. With the Rhythmic mode you will hear the transition on open cymbal crashes into breaks or at the end of the song, so you might want to use unstretched audio there. There is a case to be made that cymbals sound better with the Polyphonic Algorithm because of the lack of the crossfade artifact, but experience has taught me that Rhythmic sounds great 99% of the time on multi-track drums.
Thx Steve. I have been messing with it some more and I think I have discovered what you have just suggested.
One question though. After your done with the quantizing, do you conform to tempo or just leave it alone. Oh and also, do you keep the tracks in realtime mode or do you render them?
