Custom Time Signature parameters


Recommended Posts

Can you guys tell me how to set up a time signature in Logic Pro X?


This is what I would like....... 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8  with the accent on (1) only.   EX:   "1" 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 "1" 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 etc


Is this where you'd do that under "Custom"?


See Attached:


Thanks again you guys!

"Number of Beats" corresponds to the divisor of the proverbial equation:  "x/8."


"Note Value," then, is the dividend of the resulting time-signature:  "1/x."



"Note Value" is ... "what is 'one Beat?'"  (One 'eighth note.')


"Number of Beats" is ... "how long is a Measure?"  (Eight 'eighth notes.')



You cannot specify, neither can you control, the natural(!) subdivision of "primary" vs. "secondary" beats.  

  • If the number of beats in the measure is even, there will always be a secondary beat halfway through:  "One two three four."  
  • If the number of beats is odd, there will be no secondary.
