So if tempo is 120bpm, then quarter note at 4/4 is 500ms length and at 8/8
quarter note length is 1000ms ? It can't be. Quarter note should be 500ms
length both at 4/4 and at 8/8.
Can you confirm that both rosegarden and muse metronomes are wrong. I just
checked the metronomes on these two applications. I am sure that Cubase
metronome works the same way like those two applications.
What I knew in music theory at school, that at the same tempo quarter note
is longer than 8th note two times.
Please, check other applications. I am not sure that you are right.
