A tip for Score editor?

Hi there,
I love cubase 8 but the score editor seems quite hard to use. Sometimes a track with easy musical notes can appear as quite diffcult in the score editor. I know this has something to do with the quantization, but if it’s a large orchestra piece, must we set the instrument/quantization length for each track/instrument? Any tips on how to get this one to work easy?

Thanks!

Hi,

Yes, I strongly recommend to quantize Start of the note, and also End. I would say, it’s better to quantize Ends, not Length. If you don’t quantize Starts, ends of the notes will be quantized, in this case, but not in case, if you use Length quantize.

Or, you could set Display Quantize for every single Staff. open Scores > Score Settings. Then select tab Staff, and then Main. There is the Display Quantize part. See attached screenshot, please.
