I'd like to record some MIDI melodies using my MIDI keyboard, but I'm still very much a beginner in all areas of music, so my timing/rhythm tends to be slightly off. As a result, when I record in Reaper, for example, I always have a few notes sustained a little too long or a little too short compared to how I hear the melody in my head, which is really distracting.
Of course, I hope that will be less of an issue as my skill improves, but in the meantime, I'm imagining a possible solution and wondering whether any DAW or composition software supports this:
Is it possible to specify a note length, such as a quarter note, and have the recording software automatically snap the MIDI's notes to that nearest note? For example, when snapping to the nearest quarter note, if I play a note that's 1/5/th the length of a beat, it would record it as a quarter note, and if I play a note that's 3/7ths of a beat, it would record as a half note.
