I've no clue what you're

I've no clue what you're asking with questions 1-5.

However... A pad is a sound, a chord is a combination of notes that make a chord. E.g. AC and E make the chord a minor.

A melody is a sequence of notes. However, there's no good reason why your melody isn't a sequence of chords although this is not usual.

@derrtiblu: +1, and a good

@derrtiblu: +1, and a good laugh reading your answer!

@Causticman: basically, the answer is quite simple: What is not on beat is...off beat. But where to place off beat is a matter of taste, and a solid knowledge of rythm is required if you want to place your beat with sense and groove. Listen to some simples examples first, try to reproduce them in Caustic.

My fault orginal post. I was

My fault orginal post. I was not meaning two sound rude.

And now, not meaning two sound like a know it all.

But take skarabee advice ((( thanx ))) if u want any particular group the off beat will lead your as it starts the original groove being off and behind.

But as it starts with what u progress it leads forward the next section.

Prime example follow a down beat is on 1. Always on 1((( some say 3. )))But if u want an update it's not the 2. But the 4. Late.
Late two the show but ahead of the 1 beat.

Sooo u could start something on 3.

Depending on where u place resting notes, matters!!!!

Cause your breathing room of what is natural two u as u play your sound.

If I got this in reverse. Help me out follow caustic users.

The quarters of a measure are

The quarters of a measure are the "beats" and the 1/8 notes between them are the "off beats". So, place many notes / drum hits at the positions 3, 7, 11, 15 in the (usual) 1/16 grid. (The kicks should be located at least on positions 1 and 9 to mark the main beats.)
