I'm experiencing an issue here when quantizing in Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 (build 217) in that 1/16 notes are being merged with adjacent ones, creating 1/16 breaks in between them. So if I have, say eight 1/16 notes playing consecutively, and I select quantize (with any tidying figure), each two adjacent notes will merge into four notes with two heads each that seem to also play louder. In Notation mode these two adjacent notes merge to produce one note with two heads, while in Piano Mode one note moves over the other. This happens no matter which tidying figure is selected.

Hi,

This is primarily a notation issue? The notes are normal if you view them in piano roll mode?

Hi Greg,

No, it's not primarily a notation issue. As I mentioned, in piano roll mode, the notes are also moving over to sit in front of adjacent ones. After quantization is applied, if you go into the piano editor, when you move one of these merged notes you will find the other one underneath.

Hi,

Oh, when you mentioned "tidying," I thought you were referring to the "tidy notes" feature in notation.

Quantizing will move the notes to the nearest 1/8 or whatever you've got it set to. If I have some 1/16 notes in a row end to end and I quantize them to 1/8, I get the same results as you. If I quantize them to 1/16 or 1/32, they don't do that.

When I quantize to 1/8, two 1/16 notes jump to the nearest 1/8.

Greg,

I'm sorry, my mistake. When I was quantizing I had left the 'Note Type' drop-down box at '1/2 notes'. That box never registered with me because I was too focussed on the 'tidy' feature. When I set the note type to 1/16 or lower it now quantizes the 1/16 notes correctly.

And thanks for the t-shirt, by the way.

Hi,

You're welcome! Thanks for letting me know my suggestion was helpful.
