Odd Rhythms in FL

Recommended Posts

I've been taking a break from FL for a while and writing drumline stuff. As a result, I've fallen for 5/7-let 8th notes and weird stuff like a measure-long 11-let. Is there anyway I could do this sort of thing in FL?

The precise number of ticks (the smallest possible time units) in a note can be adjusted in the note's properties. Check your project settings under Time division and it will tell you the number of ticks per quarter note in the Timebase (PPQ) field. Once you know this number, you just need to do the math to figure out how many ticks should be in each note and adjust the notes to that length. So for example, if PPQ is 96, a measure-long 11-let in 4/4 would have notes that are 35 ticks long (96*4/11).

I'm "that" guy, but in every other DAW you just right click and change the time signature.

I just don't know why Image Line won't implement that feature.

gol doesn't like other DAW's because it makes him feel insecure. If FL becomes usable and more user-friendly it's likely because it's becoming like other DAW's and we can't have that, can we?
