Multiplying Rhythms

Tue Jul 16, 2019 11:00 am

This is a long shot - not sure if anyone will be geeky enough to read through this (let alone answer it).

In the MIDI editor, we can select a sequence and apply MIDI TRANSFORMATIONS like DOUBLE TIME or HALF TIME.

So far so good.

Now what if I wanted to transform a run of 16th notes into a a quintuplet (5:1) ?

I think I would multiply this sequence by 1,2 so that the sixteen notes (4:1) are slowed down to a quintuplet (5:1)


But when I do this, what comes out is NOT a quintuplet at all.

So obviously, either my math is wrong or my understanding of the MIDI transformation is wrong (or both)

What am I doing wrong here? Anyone?

Thanks in advance

I haven’t played with Midi Transform more than making notes all the same length, but now I’m curious. I’ll take a look tomorrow and see if I can figure out your idea!
