Finally, this one seems the most novel of the three, in part because I can't picture the musical consequence of using it! It sounds like the ultimate effect may not be unlike using the chord pattern feature on the arpeggiator. But you introduce different rhythms by letting notes converge at different places, and different sonorities by letting it resolve to different notes.
As for the shortening of the notes, I'm picturing this could be nice for a build-up, or it could just introduce different styles to a pad section.

Just so there aren't 3 transactions on my card/paypal, do you have any plans of bundling them so I could name my price on the pack?

Yes, this device is certainly more of an oddity. It was really a stepping stone to creating the Morph patch. It will probably be more use musically when playing the clips in reverse order - from the converged notes to the melody.

Just because you asked, I've added a bundle donation option here:

I created these patches simply as a hobby and challenge for myself and never intended to make a commercial enterprise out of it. It certainly takes some time and perseverance so I have really appreciated the support and donations people have made.
