Heyo People, hope u can help me at this: every time i want to draw a quarter/Eighth note,etc, Cubase just draw a 16th note. For Some help I’m grateful

In the Key Editor or in the Score Editor?

Hi there and welcome to the forums!

I believe the Length Quantize in the MIDI Key Editor is responsible for the default note length at insert.
Look for this: image

Edit: Johnny beat me to it and posed a valid question.

In the midi Region, where you write melodies


I don’t have that feature, I use Cubase 11 Elements

This feature is available in Cubase 11 Elements.
If you don’t see the tool in the toolbar, click the gear icon image to set up what tools are displayed.
