Type values as seconds instead of milliseconds

Post by eric_c » Sun Mar 04, 2012 6:59 pm

When typing a value into a field, for example when entering an envelope Attack value, typing in "1.84" and hitting return will input the value as 1.84 ms, rather than 1.84 s. Is there some way to input a value as seconds instead of milliseconds? Thanks!

time in seconds * 1000 = milliseconds

which isn't quite the answer to your question, but the maths are trivial enough to do in your head, and you should be comfortable with it, anyway.

Just shift the decimal place 3 digits: 1.84 seconds = 1840 milliseconds

example going the other direction:

17325 milliseconds = 17.325 seconds (or about 17 and 1/3 seconds)

That makes sense, thank you.
