Mixx question (may have missed this in the manual...)

Dumb newbie question regarding Mixx: is there any way to get it to recognize the BPM of a piece that is in 3/4? What about compound time sigs such as 6/8?

Re: Anything like Finale's speedy note entry?

Hi, I'm new to the forum and to Linux and like you, coming off of Finale. MuseScore will do what you need and plenty more besides. Since you've used Finale you will find it very intuitive. For me, MuseScore was the main attraction of Linux - I am but a poor classical composer, and much though I love...
