    If the imported track contains different velocity or length values for polyphonic played notes, and this characteristic is important, it is recommented to split the track into multiple pieces (e.g. for long and for short notes) and to import them into separate MBSEQ tracks.<BR>

    Another hint: if notes of the imported track don't start exactly at the 16th/32th/64th note position (e.g. because they have a "swing" feel), it is recommented to quantize the notes in a DAW before the import.<BR>
