Line 1: Line 1:
 +First, I assume you have one or more segments captured from MIDI performance. ​ Of course the performance notes don't match the beats and bar lines. ​ Fit main -> Existing Beats to Beat Segment or main -> Set Tempos from Beat Segment can fit it, but either one needs a beat track. ​ A beat track is a track consisting of one note for each beat.
 +
 +
 +  * Copy the MIDI performance segment. ​ You don't want it to get munged, so work on a copy.
 +
 +  * Open a copy of it and an empty segment in the notation editor. ​ The empty segment will become the beat track.
 +
 +  * Select the first two notes that match beats, and then Notation -> edit -> Guess Beats will select following notes that it thinks match beats. ​ It will follow ritardandos and accelerandos and add notes where they are totally missing. ​ Eventually it loses track of beats, like after 8 or 10 measures, but it still does a lot of work automatically for you.
 +
 +  * Move that to the beat track with Notation -> edit -> Move to Staff Below... ​ Use either matrix paste or replace.
 +
 +  * Find the point in time where it has lost the beat.
 +
 +  * Erase everything after that.
 +
 +  * Repeat until done.
