Hey there, I’m an old Cubase user (since Pro 24) and today, 21st century, 2016,
I can’t stand anymore to fight with the key editor when using 12/8 signature.
The LINES ARE WRONG. 12/8 or 6/8 or 9/8 are NOT binary stuff.
Each beat is naturally divided in 3 by eights notes. 12/8 means: 12 eights notes dividing each beat in 3.
So, 12/8 is a 4 beats bar(4X3) NOT 6 (6X2) like displayed in the key editor.
What a shame , we are so pampered in the space part of music by great sound designer
and in the time part we have to sob on this lack of programmers who, indeed, don’t know
much in ternary music. Or tell us why it is so hard to do.
In fact the bold lines of the editor should be every 3 steps instead of 2 and the boldest lines
every 4 beats instead of 6 . Very uncomfortable … !!! I don’t tell you with the click beating the eights
instead of the dotted 1/4 … and the trick of the 3/8 … when it works !!!
Come on Steiny push this evil away and give us the opportunity to make this kind of music with the
comfort it deserves. Jazz, blues, shuffle grooves should have been written in 12/8 or 6/8 but musicians
were not educated for in the 40s.
Come on lets repair the thing … please, even a plugin or a line editor will do .
Thanks for your understanding.
