Chords Tracks - Can a bar have more than one chord?

Hey folks,

I’m new here. I’m currently trying the trial edition of Cubase 10.5 and have just been learning about the chord track which seems like a really useful thing.

Can a bar only have one chord? I’m trying to have a different chord play on the second beat of this bar but I don’t seem to be able to drag a new chord in.


This is happening because you are using Snap and have it set to 1 bar. Change it to be a quarter note (or whatever) and you can then add a Chord Event on every quarter note. Or Turn Snap off and you can stick one anywhere but they likely won’t be exactly where you want so in general it is better to use Snap for Chord Events.
