I'm trying to sequence a piece of sheet music that has two quarter notes followed by two eighth notes; all four notes are tied together using a tuplet bracket (written as a triplet).
How can this be input using LPX's score authoring?

But that's not too complicated. Would you be OK if it was a straight quarter-note triplet? Three quarter-notes sharing the time normally taken by two? Well, do that, but split the last two notes in half.
If quarter-notes get 960 'clicks', two of them get 1920. So a triplet quarter notes gets 1920/3, which is 640. Half of one gets 320.
So, thinking in sequencer 'clicks', you want two notes of length 640, then two of length 320.
(Hope my maths is right :-)
