Grooves and clip length

Post by electrik noize » Tue Apr 08, 2014 2:44 am

Hope someone can answer a questing about how Grooves work. If I had a groove that I made, that was 4/4 in length and applied that
to a clip that is 5/4, how does Live handle that? Would the Groove "start over" on beat 5 of the the 5/4 clip since it is one beat
longer than the 4/4 groove? And what about the reverse situation...? A 5/4 groove applied to a 4/4 clip. Does Live truncate
the groove i.e. drop the last beat to conform the 5/4 groove to 4/4 time?

Thanks for any help!
