Indeed, this looks wrong! :lol:
In fact, the value of 1 unit appears, bewilderingly ;), to equal one second, rather than one tick. But what should it equal in linear timebase? One sample? One frame? Some other value derived from what the ruler is set to? Let's see what they say at Steinberg HQ. :geek:
Here's an regulation ;) formated repro to make it official: (Mainly plagiarizing Vic's recipe. :P )
On a track set to Musical Timebase, build a simple MIDI Part with one note, then duplicate it to a 2nd MIDI track
Set that duplicate track to Linear Timebase
Perform a Logical Edit: Position | "Set Relative Random Values" with a values set to 1, 0 on each Part in turn
On the Musical Timebase track it moves note either 1 tick or zero ticks , as expected
On the Linear Timebase track it moves note by one second or zero seconds, resulting in huge moves when the values are set higher.
