If you already have some MIDI data you want to strum, you can skip this step.

2. Double Click The Midi Region or Press “E” To Add Notes

3. Add Notes You Want To Strum And Select All Of Them

You can draw or play the notes you want to strum. If you already have midi notes, skip this step.

Left click and select all the notes you want to strum. Make sure they all start at the same time before you move on to the next step.

4. Expand The Region Inspector And Set A Quantize Value

5. Tap “More” To Reveal The Strum Settings

6. Adjust The “Q-Flam” Strum Value To Desire Amount

7. The Midi Notes Will Become Spread Out And Your New Strum Is Created

And that’s it, you can adjust the timing of the strum by increasing and decreasing the Q-Flam value.

TIP: If you want to serum the opposite way (from low to high notes) just make the Q-Flam setting a negative

Now, this doesn’t keep strumming like a guitarist would play, it’s a single strum. For an authentic guitar strum that can be used to mimic a life like acoustic guitar, check out Native Instrument’s Session Guitarist Strummed Acoustic Series.
