How can I quantize a real time keyboard playing?
Not a recorded part, but it have to be quantized during a live keyboard performance (in a session view).

I know I've seen M4L devices for this, but I have no idea how good it works as it's by nature a quite fiddly things to achieve.
Depending on what you have to play you could also go with Arppegiator I guess, but the use cases are limited.

this works great (requires the transport to be running)

Yes, this plugin works pretty good, and I tried to use it for a while, BUT there is something strange about the notes length: For some instruments it makes the notes as short as the chosen quantize rate, but for other instruments the notes are getting longer with frequent repetitions. I was even thinking about getting into MFL to fix the problem, to make sure that it is only moving the start of a note, without affecting the length of it.
And the version is still the same: 2.2
So, if there is any other way, or if there is a workaround please let me know.
