Can I change tempo for markers?

If I want to change the tempo but I want the MIDI parts already in the project to preserve their tempo and not extend or contract, I have to set all the tracks to linear.

But the markers tracks don’t have a toggle between musical and linear, so when I set the tempo to a lower one, all the MIDI parts have the same duration as before, but the marker tracks now have a longer duration.

Just in case I’m not clear, let me show you what I mean:

This is the project with the tempo at 120:

The cursor is at 4:35. Now, I change the tempo to 65:

You can see that the tracks remained at the same duration, but the marker track got longer and if I put the cursor at the end of the last marker, it’s at 7:05.

So what I would like to know is if there’s a way to make the marker track behave as the other tracks did after the tempo change.

I can’t remember exactly what it does, as I’m not at my Music PC atm … but you see the downwards arrow just to the right of the box you highlighted in red (just to the right of “tap”) … I know that has some time domain options in it that I swear have something to do with tempo tracks. Worth having a look in there see if any of them are of use and help your specific needs.

Thanks for the suggestion, but as far as I can tell, that doesn’t relate to the markers at all:

Sure they do. Maybe you have them set to be hidden.

Maybe set project tempo or display will change how the markers react? I’m not sure you’ll have to try it.

The “insert” ones for sure don’t look like they will help (at least not once you’ve already inserted the tempo track), but the last two may change the behavior. Save your work, and give it a go. :stuck_out_tongue:

^^NVM raino solved your issue. :slight_smile:

Sorry, my bad. I just did a fresh install of macOS, so Cubase is mostly as it comes when opened the first time. So I had forgotten to go into the track header settings, and there it was.
