tempo/signature issue


I’ve mistakenly started my project in 2/4, 73 bpm isntead of 6/8, 105 bpm
Can I somehow change the signature so that tempo of my music remains the same?
Thank you so much for your help!


Welcome to the forums.

In Cubase, there is a Time Signature Track (signature track) and a Tempo Track, however, I usually find it easier to use common time 4/4 and if I want 6/8, I use triplets and don’t change the time signature. But, Cubase will change time signature and tempo.

Take it slow, good luck.

I don’t believe you need to have a time-sig track if the entire project is just one time-sig. Just position the cursor on the very first beat, bring up the transport (F2), and enter the time=sig in the appropriate field. Same with tempo if that never changes throughout the piece. If either time-sig or tempo does change, you will need a time-sig or tempo track, however.
