I’m having a bit of trouble getting my head around the metronome functions in association with the click button tempo in the transport panel. No problems at all with common time signatures like 2/2, 3/2, ¾ and 4/4 but in compound time signatures like 6/8, 10/8 or 12/8 these two functions are not so straightforwrd.
I understand the metronome setup panel perfectly well, but the transport panel click button puzzles me. What does the tempo listed next to the click button refer to? Does it refer to the count base set in the metronome setup panel or does it always refer only to the number of quarter notes per minute in any time signature? I can find nothing in the user manual which explains this.
For example If I have a score in 6/8 time with a dotted quarter marked at 120 per minute, how would I set the count base and time signature in the metronome setup panel and the click button tempo in the transport panel to give me a click:
a. on every eighth note?
b. on every dotted quarter note?
Thanks in advance for some help on this
