Setting the metronome to count in triplets

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to figure out how to get the metronome to count in triplets. I’m using a 6/8 time signature but the way I want it to count is more like a 2/4 time with each beat in triplets. So it would have that gallop feel like…
1 2 3, 2 2 3, 1 2 3, 2 2 3, etc.

Thanks for your help.

If I am understanding correctly (you want to hear just 1st and 4th eighth-note in a bar of 6/8?), go to Transport menu>Metronome Setup, select “Use Count Base” and set it to 3/8 (yes, 3, not 6 :wink: )


That’s perfect! Thank you so much.
