Defining the Track Time Base

The time base of a track determines if the events on a track are positioned to bars and beats (musical time base) or to the timeline (linear time base). Changing the playback tempo affects only the time position of events on tracks with a musical time base.


In the track list, click Toggle Timebase to change the time base.


Musical time base is indicated by a note symbol:

Linear time base is indicated by a clock symbol:


Switching between linear and musical time base results in a very small loss of positioning precision. Therefore, you should avoid switching repeatedly between the two modes.
