Logic X Compound time metronome settings

Discussion in 'Logic Pro X' started by Christopher Pratt, Mar 9, 2016.

  1. This is not the first time I've asked this question but no-one has answered it.
    How do I get the "crotchets per minute" control in the arrange window to register "dotted rhythms" as in 6/8 with three quavers to a beat rather than two as in simple time.
    Every time I record in compound time I have to do a conversion so that to get 50 dotted crotchet beats per minute I have to have 75 crotchet beats in the control window.

    My top window will thus read 75.0000 6/8.

    I'm sure I'm being totally thick but nothing in the metronome control seems to allow compound time.

    Does it??

  4. Thanks- brilliant!
    SO- just to clarify- if I set the groupings as you describe, the metronome setting at the top of the Arrange Window will accurately describe the speed of the "dotted" note beat?
    E.g. Metronome 75 in 6/8 will represent 225 quavers per min? If it doesn't then only 1/2 the problem has been solved!
    PLEEEEEZE say it does! It's one of the very few amateurish aspects of Logic Pro!
    What new treats are there in 10.2.2.
    I've downloaded it.

    1/2 solved then.
  6. Half a loaf is better than no bread!! At least the click pulse is now correct! Just have to keep doing the 3 x "n" divided by 2 conversion [where "n"= number of quavers per compound beat.]
    Just offends my sense of logic.
    Thanks so much for your response!!
