This is not a bug but more a question of whether I'm perhaps doing something
I'm the most basic of beginners in writing music and normally I just want to
record melodies that appear in my head so that I won't forget them. I can
relatively quickly get the tune down, but the timing is harder...and the
problem is that once I put a series of notes down (for me the quickest is to
get the melody out in 4/4 time, each note a quarter note) it is then quite
hellish to add a dot or change something to a half note or eighth note or
Actually, the specific frustrations are that if I'm making a note shorter, I
end up with a rest that I don't want to be there. If I'm making a note
longer, I am obviously adding more beats to the measure and making it weird
(the bar turns red). And if I try to cut and paste there's often no room in
the measure for what I want to add. Essentially, what I do now is use
Rosegarden to get the melody right, then rewrite the whole piece over and
over, measure by measure, until I get the timing right.
What I am wondering is if there's a way to make Rosegarden be more flexible
about the beats per measure right from the start. For example, perhaps not
have any bars or measures...get the notes and their timing down right first,
and then add a time signature and key and the other stuff.
Or is there another way? Ideally I could work out the melody and fiddle
with note durations as much as I want, then hit some button and it would fit
it (perhaps noticing errors) into the given time signature.
Thanks for any and all suggestions.
