Default Changing MIDI Note Duration - Need Help Please

How do I change the duration of a midi note? For example, say I want to change a group of midi notes that have different durations to all have the same approximate duration of a stacato note played as a 16th note at 200 BPM.

I've attempted to use the "Midi Operations/Change Duration" command with no luck.

Thanks.

Can you give the exact step by step you're using? I just tested this and the 'change duration' works fine on my system.

Hi Jeff,

What are the steps you are trying, as the Change Duration command in MIDI Operations seems to be working properly here. This is what I am doing:

1. Make a selection on a MIDI Track set to Notes view of the Notes I want to change the duration of with the Selector or Grabber tool.
2. Event > MIDI Operations > Change Duration
3. Choose the "Set All to" radio button and enter a value in the text field - 2 beats for example.
4. Click Apply

Result: The duration of all selected notes is changed to 2 beats. Is that what you are looking to do?

Cheers,
Scott

This looks like what I'm trying to do. I'm not at my system now.

You set it for 2 beats (half note at 4/4 time). How would I set it for 1/16th note?

Hi Jeff,

So the first numeric field is for beats (so yes, in 4/4 putting a 2 there will mean a half note). The second numeric field is ticks (there are 960 of those per quarter note), so an eighth note would be 480 and a sixteenth note would be 240. So, just leave a 0 in the first field and 240 in the second field and you can set all the selected notes to be a sixteenth note.

Cheers,
Scott
