Applying swing to only one pattern?

Is there currently a way to apply swing to only one pattern? I'm working on a drum track for a song that has a swing beat during the breakdown, but the rest of the song is straight-8ths. How can I isolate this one drum pattern in swing time?

 

Thanks!

There's no per-pattern swing option. I can think of two ways to do this:

  1. Create the breakdown pattern with a triplet resolution
  2. If you want to use the Swing option in Mixer, create the breakdown pattern as a separate song with Swing added and gluing the two songs together in a DAW
