Bar beats weird number


Sorry if the title is incorrect, but I didn’t know how to put it.

I have this “weird” number “960” on the bar. See the image plz.

I was expecting the usual number system like 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 2, when you zoom in. What is the logic for the current set up?

It’s not weird numbers, it’s ticks. It corresponds with the second clock BBT (bars, beats, ticks)

Ok, thanks.

But can Ardour shows 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 2, when you zoom in, like other DAWs?

This is what I see:

  • When zoomed out, I see only bar numbers, e.g. |13 |14 |15 |16 ...
  • When I zoom in more, I see beat numbers in between the bar numbers, e.g. |13 |2 |3 |4 |14 ...
  • Zooming in even more, I finally see tick numbers in between the beat numbers.

So if you’re asking whether Ardour can show beat numbers (1.2 being the second beat of the first bar, for example), the answer is that it already does. However, I don’t know if you can change how the beat numbers are formatted.
