    Not sure if any of you use it, but I'm writing a pattern in 4/4, with fills that have only two beats per bar.

    When I add the fill into the song chain, it's adding that pattern as a 4 beat bar, even though the actual pattern itself is set to only have two. As such, I get dead air for the second half of that bar.

    I attached a pic so you can see what I'm talking about. Does anyone know how to set the song chain to realize that particular bar is only two beats long?

    Hmm...I get the same crap. :( I'll poke around and see if I can find a way around that...but that's pretty dumb if you can't do it.

    It's useless if I can't do it really, though I can't imagine the software would be as popular if every fill had to be 4 bars long.

    I do believe I'll be hitting amazon.com for a book on it this afternoon.

    For those finding this thread because I'm spammin' it around:

    Basically I want to remove that Cell.

    My beats are as such:

    [1234][1234][1234]

    What I want is a fill that's only 3 beats long. So in a measure, it would look like:

    [1234][1234][123][1234][1234]

    Figured it out, basically if I zoom in and drag the remainder of the clip over to it, my 3-beat fills work out.

    Another tip I picked up is if I double the tempo of the track I'm recording and rearrange my hits accordingly, it makes things like double bass hits and rolls (kick-kick-snare in two beats rather than three) work out a lot nicer than slicing and dicing on the piano roll.
