Midi note length always quantizes to 1/128

When drawing midi notes, midi note lengths always snap to 1/128 despite checking that:
  • Quantize grid length is specified (e.g. 1/16) in both the editor and the main project window.
  • Snap setting is turned On.
I can demonstrate this problem in a number of ways:
  • When using the Draw tool (aka "pencil"), click + hold dragging across a cell snaps the length in increments to 1/128.

  • When using the Line tool, drawing a line results in midi notes that are auto-divided in lengths of 1/128.

  • If I have a midi note of any length, using the feature "Quantize Lengths" results in the note being transformed to a 1/128 note.

Oddly, there seem to be a random set of quantize-related features that work properly. For example, hitting the "Q" button to quantize the start of a note works as expected and click + hold dragging a note around to change its position also snaps properly.

I should also note that this occurrence is project specific - some projects work completely fine as intended.

I'm thinking this might be a software error, but if you have any solutions I'd appreciate your answer.

Are you sure the Length Quantize Preset is not set to 128?

Hi Stephen57,

Yes, I've tried other quantize sizes in the slot shown in your image.
