Showing Rhythmic Notation

You can show regular notation as rhythmic notation.


You have opened your score in Cubase and you have performed basic editing to make the score as legible as possible.


  1. Select the notes that you want to display as rhythmic notation.
  2. Select Scores > Rhythmic Notation > Show Rhythmic Notation.


The selected notation is displayed in rhythmic notation:

  • Note heads change shape.

  • Pitches are suspended so that all rhythm note heads are shown at the same vertical position.

  • Chords are suspended and represented by a single note head.

  • Ties between rhythm notation and regular notation bars are suspended.

  • Bars that do not contain notes are filled with as many slashes as correspond to the numerator of the time signature.
