The Humanize option is a great approach to quickly making individual tracks feel a bit more alive. However, it would be great to have additional options that give tracks a bit more life, like altering the Volume for each step for achieving simple effects like accented hi-hat sixteenth notes. This could be an “Accent” Action type.
What is the problem?
When wanting to program drum patterns, it becomes a bit tedious to program individual accented sixteenth notes for hi-hats and whatnot.
What do you want to achieve?
It would be great to have an Action type that would apply some generic accented styles to tracks, like where every other step is accented, every fourth step is accented, etc.
Are there any workarounds?

Yeah there is a volume randomization option, but I think a dedicated “accent” Chance/Randomization feature that has some more deterministic options for accenting steps with common increments (quarter notes, eighth notes, sixteenth notes, etc) would be useful.
