: I know what quantizing is but what is the difference between quantizing and
: the snap function? They sound like they are similar from reading the manual.

: And what do the different snap values mean?

The difference is that snap means that when you change an event(note, pattern, etc...)by clicking and dragging then the event will always snap to the value set.For example: if you have a note that starts a little after the first beat in a measure and you click and drag it forward (the snap function is on and set to snap to the nearest beat) then you can't drag the note to the any place in the measure other than the beats (the note will either be dragged to beat 1:00, 2:00, 3:00 or 4:00 (in 4/4 time) it can't be dragged to 2:32 or whatever)
The quantize function moves ALL the notes in a selected area to the nearest beat, quarter note, eithth, or whatever you choose.
