Query about Fermat (Pause) Symbol in Cubase Pro 10

Hi. I have added a Fermat note symbol over the last 1/4 note in a bar (music in 4/4). I would like this pause to be held for 3 beats. Is there any way I can make the pause symbol actually pause the music in real time? I have accessed ‘expression mapping’ but there is no Fermat option available.
I would prefer to keep the bar in 4/4 with the pause rather than have to change the last bar to 6/4, just to get the pause.
Suggestions greatly appreciated.

How about changing the tempo?

How awesome would it be if we somehow had access to such interconnectivity within the program so as to automatically create a default tempo change within the tempo track when entering a fermata or a rit or a rall.

Ah, summer dreaming…


Respectfully ggmanestraki, I did think it was too good to be true but don’t think it’s beyond the realm of possibility…:slightly_smiling_face:

Hi Steve, thanks so much for responding.
Yes, I think this is the best option. The piece is a thematic template with many tracks from which I will be exporting bits and pieces to create variations.
With the tempo change option, I will have to export the tempo track…I was hoping I might be able to not have to do that every time, particularly as there will also be starts at different bars. Oh well!
