Notion handling time signature changes badly

asked Dec 5, 2018 in Notion by mattosgood (420 points)

I recorded a simple midi part in S1 v4, in 3/4. Sent it to Notion and it opened it up as a 4/4 file with a blank space where the 4th beat in each bar should be. 

When I insert a time signature at the beginning of my part in Notion to 3/4, none of the bars change length - it doesn't recognise that the bars now have the correct number of beats in them. 

Even more frustratingly, when I delete all the bar lines and try reinserting them, Notion still behaves as though my bars are four beats long and simply puts the blank space back in the bar. 

Either I'm missing something really obvious, or Notion is beyond incompetent here... Driving me mad!

There's something odd happening in the file here - please create a tech support ticket via your my.presonus.com account and we can help you further - you will also be able to attach your original Studio one, MIDI and Notion files to the ticket.

I am having this same issue, except I'm starting a score from scratch (no midi).  Defaults to 4/4, but I need 2/4.  I change the time signature at the beginning of the piece to 2/4, and enter in a few measures.  The software plays back as if there are still 4 beats in each measure and there is extra space in the measure to the right of the notes I entered.

Was the original poster's problem resolved?  If yes, can you share how this is fixed?  Thanks!
