In a program for tabbing (but I use with MIDI creation) called Tuxguitar, I've written out a drum beat on hihats, and I'm pretty sure the bpm is correct, and everything SOUNDS correct, but I can't get it to loop measures. To get it to sound like one continuous looping flow, I had to duplicate the measure, and then I found for every measure, it added a 64th note, so I had to pull it back a bit.
I don't think this is such a complex beat that it needs to be copy-pasted and adjusted for EVERY measure, but I do think maybe I've got the time signature wrong. You see, in my head, if you change the time signature to make the measure end where it should, then it'll loop easily. But nothing I've tried worked.
Here is how it should sound (well except that the engine sucks so it sounds nothing like a hihat on export to wav)
And here's a picture of what's going on.
Again, it's looping perfectly, and it's the right BPM, but I need a way to fit it all into just one measure so it can loop, a time signature, maybe multiple?.
