Inserting Measures

Postby Eddiescoob » Sat Aug 12, 2017 4:38 am

Please don`t shoot me for my ignorance but how do I insert a 4/8 bar measure into a track that I am working on?
I`ve laid down a few tracks but on playback I feel that the hook needs to come in later after a rise. How do I insert more bars across all the the whole track.
Please be kind with you replies as I am dumb and full of Vodka lol

Cheers Mark but that may as well be written in the language of the drink i have consumed for me to understand lol.......is there a simple way of adding 4 bars to a tune from `Say bar 39 to 43` by highlighting `Said` bars and inserting 4 more.....sorry for my stupidity but it is early afternoon in the UK and us Brits like a tipple be a Football match lol.

Sounds like poor work conditions. :lol:
Its coffee and morning paper time here so.....

Set snap to measure, highlight four bars in the timeline and use the "add time" function as shown in the graphic.

Short of finding/creating a step by step video, I don't think I can explain it clearer.........
Stay in tune, Mark

Well I am either completely stupid or too pissed to follow basic instructions but at no stage, after highlighting the bars I want, has `Add Time` appeared on any pop up......might have to go through the turmoil of moving everything along 4 bars or stop drinking.....problem is drink makes me creative so moving is the only option lol
