Just hold down one of the modifier keys while dragging to get finer accuracy. I'm not sure which key as I have a Windows keyboard on a Hackintosh, but it's either Alt or Ctrl.
Whoa, seriously!? That's great! I'll try it out when I get home. It seems a very weird / hidden requirement to need a modifier key to drag left, when dragging to the right (increasing duration) doesn't require one..... seems like it should be symmetrical behavior to to me, drag right to cover multiple steps, drag left to make it smaller than 1 step....<shrug>
Very glad to hear this though, will try it out as soon as I can. Thanks!
It makes sense imo, as rather than allowing you to go backwards, it allows finer control, and this fits in with the way most plugins allow you to achieve more accuracy on any of the knobs. So without the modifier, you can make a crash or a snare with a huge reverb on the recording last exactly 1 beat and stop exactly on the next hit, and with it you can get the fine control to put a little bit of variation on the lengths of a high hat pattern - this variation could need to be longer than one hit as well as shorter.
Of course, subtracting one step from one step would delete the hit, which wouldn't be helpful at all!
