This has been the bane of my writing existence for ten years. Simply put, I have a riff in mind that I can play on guitar, let's say it opens with two palm-muted open notes. Now, I change my Cubase drum editor to 1/16 notes (or guitar pro as I sometimes like to output the midi notes into cubase's drum map to write drum beats) and I put the two open notes on 1/16 and 2/16, it's too slow. So I change Cubase editor to 1/32 and guitar pro I change the notes to 1/32, and now it's way to quick. Then I try putting the first note on 1/31 and the second on 3/32 then timing becomes odd and doesn't sound right. I'm stuck, the amount of riffs I have thrown away because of this is criminal. Where am I going wrong here? Another way to put it is I cannot seem to transfer the rhythm I've come up with in my hands to the drum editor or guitar pro editor. I often have to sacrifice this rhythm for something more uniform and not quite as interesting. I hope this makes sense, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
