Snap MIDI Note To Grid

Question

When I edit the duration of a midi note with the cursor in the piano roll view, it is not always snapping precisely to the grid line.  I can pull the note slightly past a grid line so my midi notes end up not being exact.  For example, I can stretch a note to 22:01:0006 when I am trying to stretch it to  22:01:0000 precisely.  In my prior edition of Cakewalk, if I had the snap to grid set at a certain musical time, I could only stretch the notes to exact gridlines and not miniscule increments past and before the grid line.  How do I make the note snap only to the gridlines?  Thanks.

hmmm. worked for me - once i set it to extreme and put snap to grid to 1/4, 1/2, 1/8T etc all snaps were, er, extreme in aligning to the grid... what version are you running?

All I do is not worry and then quantize the whole track

 

if you have snap set up the new notes you draw will snap. But existing notes can be dragged anywhere and as far as I know they don’t snap. So I quantize

@ Nigel Mackay.  Yes, I have snap to grid turned on but the notes still can be stretched beyond the gridlines.   @John Vere.  I suppose I could do that, but I'd like to edit individual notes precisely also.  I was able to easily do this in previous versions of Cakewalk Sonar.  Very annoying.

if you set the snap to under the customize menu all the way to "extreme" does that solve it? anything less seems to allow variable placement/stretching...

There are occasions when Cakewalk/Sonar will not respond to snap properly. I've had things snap to odd positions or not at all. A program reboot may help.
