MSG,

Could you explain the quantizing feature option on the Alesis Micron? I'm thick as a brick...

Quantizing is different from synth to synth. Basically quantizing is the ability to set notes to a precise timing grid for playback. Yamaha's motif quantizing feature "rounds" off a sequenced played note to the nearest whole note , half , quarter or whatever is set in the quantizing menu. So if a note is hand played in late or early , quantizing fixes it. (moves it to the nearest beat) It's a powerful feature in the Yamaha as one can adjust how accurate the quantizing is (as a percentage) so there is a more "human" feel to the playing. Yamaha calls it "swing".

The micron has a much less powerful version of this in the arppagiator. As you speed up (or slow down) a sequenced arp , quantizing makes sure all the notes fit to the new timing.
the manual wrote:
Length and Grid quantizing The Micron records your playing at a very high resolution. The length and grid ettings that you select for playing back your rhythms are used to nondestructively
quantize those recordings. So, if you record a four-bar rhythm and change its length later to ¼ bar, the Micron will only play a fraction of your rhythm, but it will remember the whole thing. If you want to change the length back to four bars at any time, the complete rhythm will still be available. Similarly, rhythms are quantized using the grid setting, but the underlying information remains untouched. So, as you cycle through different grid settings, you’re likely to hear different syncopations and
“feels” emerge.
