Snap feature functioning stangely

I’m struggling with the snap function despite having looked at the relevant sections of the operation manual.

NOTE: I am new to Cubase and have been focusing on sample editing, although I haven’t yet tested the snap function specifically in this area. Perhaps I’ve inadvertently altered a setting somewhere?

I am now trying to write a beat in the key editor of an instrument track and snap is not making any sense to me. Snap is forcing me to write notes in the following succession:,,…

The above pattern continues ad infinitum.

The ruler in the key editor is set to bars and beats and snap type is set to grid.

Thanks in advance.

Turn off Snap To Zero Crossing.

Thanks again for your help. :slight_smile:

It turned out a quantise preset was selected that unknowingly corresponded to an audio file I was editing.
