#174 clock lock function has no effect

Midi (45)

When, clicking in clock lock (T) column, a lock icon appears but it has apparently no effect.

This means that, clock lock being on or off, when tempo is changed, midi notes follow the new tempo.

For reminder, this function is needed to set a song to the right tempo, when it has been inputed without a metronome (live for instance).

Anyway, thanks for Muse.

    The lock function is very 'bare-bones' skeletal unfinished coding.
    It currently does nothing at all. I saw this report before but I confess
    I don't understand what 'lock' is supposed to do.
    Robert, do you know what the intention was?
    The only thing I could think of was that 'lock' would actually be more useful
    on wave tracks not midi tracks, so that the wave could be 'time-stretched'
    to match midi tracks if the tempo is changed, although there is no time-stretching
    feature in MusE right now...

    I'll answer my own question... With midi track lock on, when tempo
    is changed the track's midi note times are not changed. That is, they still
    play at their original tempo.
    MusE would draw the notes stretched out or compressed together,
    just as MusE currently draws stretched waves in the arranger
    (since there's no wavetrack lock function).
    So together, midi and wave lock would be a powerful punch...
    I'd have to mark this one as 'later', but you never know...
