I'm trying to enter the following into Logic Pro X:

Triplet marking over a crotchet rest and two crotchets.  Another triplet marking over three crotchets.

but I don't know how to enter the rest as a triplet.

Any idea?

Change 'Division' to /12

'Division' to /12

Draw notes onto the Piano Roll in the following manner (Each division is /12th and not /16th or /32nd) piano roll

...and that's it! solution


A triplet is 3 notes in the time of two. In your example there are 3 quarter notes in the time of two quarter notes. SO if you want to enter a rest to equal the quarter note triplet, enter a minim rest or two quarter note rests WITHOUT using the triplet notation.
