It adds a certain amount of random variation in the retrigger
time when dragging around to reduce the machine-gun effect. It is a subtle
touch, but can be more pleasing.

That only begs the next question: what exactly does the retrigger time do?

Here is another snippet from the in-progress manual:

Both Retrigger and Glide mode note transitions can be limited
in how fast it switches to the next note. Similar to the way that
humans can only play an instrument so fast physically, this control
enforces a limit to make playing the instruments more realistic
when dragging a finger around the play area. This is also useful
with drum sounds. The factory defaults
were carefully chosen for each instrument to make them sound
realistic, but you are free to change it, to obtain super-human
speed or slow things down. The lower the time interval, the faster
notes will be allowed to transition when dragging quickly.

In Glide mode, this controls how quickly each note glides into the
next one as well.
