Quarter Notes only!

Post by mihran » Sun Jan 28, 2018 11:56 pm

I am trying to write a folk song, inserting 8th notes and qtr notes. For some reason, when i enter an 8th note, then a quarter note, it changes both the quarter notes

It is strange - i entered 8th note, 16th note, another 16th note, it changed all notes to a quarter note,

Are layers involved? Or, to put it another way, should layers be involved?

Does SongWriter have quantization settings in the MIDI menu?

Hello it is strange -

here is the quantization
smallest value is 16th note
Tuplets are on
and i did not tie Syncopations

I dont have layers - so it is very simple -

each note was entered as an 8th note as soon as i enter the next note, the prior note reverts to a quarter note

With such long stems, it looks like perhaps you are indeed entering eighth notes but not getting beams. Have you changed anything with respect to beams?
