Polymeters in Logic X


Go to solution Solved by David Nahmani,

Recommended Posts



In ableton live, there is a function that makes creating polymeters real easy. How do I create a 7 against 4 polymeter for example? Is there a practical way to do stuff like that in logic x? In other words, how do I fit 7 equally spaced notes within one 4/4 bar?

While time handles is very nice feature it, prior to its implementation I used another method.

1/create your polymeter rhythmic notation in the score.

2/ From the score menu -> functions->quantize-> fixed display note position and duration.

This forces the underlying midi ( shown in the piano roll) to match the score.

Keep you eyes on the notes in the piano roll as I execute this function. ( 7 even spaced notes in a single measure).

yet another option....
