I’ve been having this problem for a few months now. Whenever I start a new project, time signature is set to 4/4. I never use tracks to change the signature, since we’re using Cubase at school with children who work mainly in 4/4.
So, initially there are four slim lines and then a thicker one, to delimit bars. Like this:
But then, when I click the MIDI track, inside it there’s a whole new world - that of a 5/4 time signature, like this:
The “Mystic 05” track in the first caption is the same as what is shown in the second one. I’ve looked through every grid and/or quantize setup, but there is no explanation to why this happens.
Also, during composing, it has happened that the time signature on the Transport Panel suddenly changed to 3/4, but the grid inside a random MIDI track remained 5/4.
You can understand my frustration, as it is almost impossible for kids to quantize their work unless they have their visual markers.
Thank you for your time,
