reduce tempo and quantization

Discussion in 'comp.music.midi' started by Sebastian \Ziri\ Pforr, Jul 9, 2003.

  1. Hi
    I built a song in FruityLoops (unfortunately) with a tempo of 380 to get my
    64(instead of 8) beats per pattern running in a proper tempo. Now I wanted
    to inport it in Cubase, but the actual tempo of the song should be 95. Is
    there a possibility to reduce the length of all midi-notes by 1/4, so a 1/4
    note becomes a 1/16? because i don´t want to do it manually. perhaps a
    function in cubase sx or with a external midi-editing tool?
    thx
    Sebastian

    You want to do more than reduce the note lengths. That would leave
    them playing at the same time, with gaps between.

    Yes, Cubase will do this. Logical Edit has Presets called Half Tempo
    and Double Tempo.

    Or just turn the tempo down in Cubase. SX supports tempos up to 300.
    I'd be interested to learn what tempo it uses for a midi file tempo
    380. What happens?

  3. quite funny...
    when I import the file, Cubase keeps the tempo of 380 and plays it with 380,
    but shows only 300. As soon as I change the tempo, I cant change it back to
    380...300 is the max.
    but everything works fine now at 95 :)
    thx
