Notes: I try to make it sound as ‘live’ as possible using Auxy. My bigest problem is with percussion it’s hard to make it swing - like jazz perc should, any ideas, examples? Maybe any midi files to download and learn? Can ya give me any links?
I have tried to cut parts of live loops and use it, but changed my mind as I feel it would be cheating - I want to make it - note by note, beat by beat from the scratch without using any loops. As for acoustic bass/upright bass used here - it was cut from few sources into ‘one shoots’ - I have made new instrument than written it’s line note by note, from the scratch - thanks to this I can completely control it. There are few notes missing but thanks to pitch-shifting I can play most of needed notes.

Thanks for constructive feedback and remember its fresh work (in progress) - I have started just 2 days ago and had been playing with it only just for aprox. 30 minutes, so don’t be too harsh.

To get swing on any drum or sound, you just have to tap on the cog icon in the top right of a project, and between the tempo and key sliders there is a slider to control how much swing you want in that track. Alternatively you could just use triplets in a pattern like this:

Also, swing doesn’t do anything to triplets.
Hope this helps!

Use longer rides, it gives more flow

Edit: I take it back a little, its really up to you how you do jazz. I personally prefer jazz when the instruments connect but theres all kinds of jazz
