Fingers crossed that I'm a moron and I'm missing something simple, and can actually start getting into the meat of authoring soon...
To put it simply, when I line up the next measure and press Q, it calculates the tempo from the start of the last measure up to that one. So I try to designate a spot at around 4 and a half measures in as the start of measure 4, and it makes it measure 5 and calculates the tempo from that half measure. This has resulted in my tempo being off by several hundred BPM. This is counter-productive to say the least.
I've been batting at this ball of yarn for hours now. I need some help. Sadface emoticon.
Also, is there a reason that my stems are playing back at a rate of 1.302? Am I meant to change this somehow? That can't be helping.
