Clip Signatures 8.1.3 in the user manual

Post by matthewnovachis » Fri Nov 30, 2018 12:15 am

Hi everyone
I am totally confused about this function. Here is what it says in the manual. Anyone understand this and know why you would need it?

"Using the Clip Signature fields, you can specify the time signature of a MIDI or audio clip. This
setting is relevant only for display; it does not affect playback. Please note that Clip Signature
is completely separate from the project’s time signature, and can be set independently for each
clip. This makes it easy to create complex polymetric textures by simultaneously triggering clips
with different meters and/or loop lengths."

Thank you!
