Very easy to use. Just place on a MIDI track followed by an instrument and start hitting notes.

From the creator:

“Two or more tracks can be “group humanized” so that their timing resembles musicians playing in the same room together. For example, a bass and a drum sequence will adapt to each others delays in a “humanized” way.”

 

This group of devices can add life to any electronic composition.
