Working With a Meter-Based Display

If your working material is tempo-based, you can select the meter format (bars, beats, and ticks) for the ruler legend. This makes it easier to find musically related cutting points.


  1. In the wave window or the montage window, right-click the time ruler, and select Bars and Beats.
  2. Right-click the time ruler, and select Time Format.
  3. On the Bars and Beats tab, set the Time Signature and Tempo to values that match your audio file.
  4. Set Ticks per Quarter Note to a number that you feel comfortable with.

    For example, this can be the same value that is used by your MIDI sequencer.

  5. Click OK.
