Understanding track types: signature & tempo tracks

Hello everyone,

As I’m still reading and learning a lot everytime I open Cubase 12 (Artist) I have a new question:

Tempo tracks
is directly effecting the entire project, changing its tempo as the song plays.

Signature tracks
Is it just meant to control the metronom?
So nothing is done to other tracks.


:point_right: Is the signature track also useful to effect a midi / vst-instrument track or even audio-track while the song plays? Like the tempo track does…


The Signature Track changes the Grid. But you don’t hear any change while changing the Signature.

Ok, as I thought. Thank you for the :rocket: answer!
