Default ReBar - adjusting the barlines (Notation Composer)

Hi friends,

It's finally here Many folks have requested a tutorial video for the ReBar feature, and I've put together a quick overview of what ReBar can do, and how you can do it.

Sometimes you find a file where the transcription to sheet music looks unplayable, or the beat cursor doesn't match the beat you hear, or perhaps you've recorded a MIDI file but didn't use the metronome.
Now what? ReBar!

Some highlights:

  • How to tell if you have a metronomeless file
  • How to calibrate your MIDI device (this makes sure it's not just a latency problem, and also helps you to get those barline placements spot-on when using the ReBar feature)
  • Review the tools that are in the ReBar tool palette
  • How to manually adjust the barlines
  • How to record the barlines using the Insert key on your keyboard.
  • Extra "clean up" tips for more readable sheet music
To watch the video, click here.
To download the video (mp4 format), please click here to download.

The video is roughly a half hour long, so please be patient while it loads or downloads.

I forgot to mention in the video that you can also do the MIDI Device calibration directly from the ReBar tool palette - it's the last little button on the right that looks like a MIDI plug. In the video, I show it being done from the Setup/Quick MIDI Devices setup (where it's useful for setting the latency for playback of files as well )

If you have any questions, comments, or otherwise civil discourse about it, please let me know.

Music is to the soul like water is to green growing things.
