Time Signature Change in Arrangement View not reflected in midi clip

Post by toddincharlotte » Tue Apr 14, 2020 3:56 pm

I have a very basic time signature change in arrangement view. I go from 4/4 to 5/4 for one bar and back to 4/4 for the rest of the song. One extra beat in this single measure. While I can adjust the beat time ruler at the top of the view and my metronome adjusts the downbeat for each of the measures changing into and out of 5/4, when I program my drums, my clip does not see the meter change. It stays in 4/4 the whole time and so my downbeats occur on beat 2 of the entire song after the meter change.

I am recording the whole song in arrangement view, no segments as in session view. Straight through, beginning to end.

Any suggestions?

Did you ever find a solution? Just encountered the same thing and figured there must be a way of fixing this, otherwise what would be the point in being able to insert time signature changes at all!?
