Added quater note

• Mar 2, 2018 - 16:35

In a song I just created, everything was perfectly fine. Until, I decided to add something to one of the movements. The part I added is in 4/4 time and the movement after is also. Somehow when I added this new part, the next movement after added a quarter note rest at each downbeat. I am not sure what to do. I could go in and redo every measure to set it right, but that will take a long time. So, how do I get rid of this extra rest at each downbeat? It is stressing me out! :)

I thank you for your help, but I think there's a misunderstanding with my question. If you conduct this piece, the order of the notes does not line up. Instead of the down beat being on beat two (like it is now) I would much rather have it on beat one, where it is supposed to go. Like in measure 89. The first rhythm in that measure needs to go on beat one. Thanks for your help, again!

If you look at the measures I explained, they seem to be off rhythm by a beat. Example: in measure 89 there is a rest on beat one. I would like the sound to come in on beat one. Same thing with measure 90, 91, 92 and the measures that follow until 117... when i added a part to the third movement somehow things shifted in the forth movement. It added a rest on each downbeat.

Without going back in time it's impossible to say for sure what happened - I guess you must have changed a time signature but not specified where you wanted the change to end (either by first selecting the region, or by inserting the change to the end of the region first) and things got rewritten accordingly and you didn''t notice until too late to undo the change and then properly specify the region.

In any case, regardless of how you got into this situation, my advice above stands as the way to get out of it: select the region you want moved (eg, click first note measure 89, then shift+click last note of 117), cut, click first beat of 89, paste. You'll need to correct spelling of rhythms (or try Layout / Regroup Rhythms, although you'll lose elements attached to notes).
