You are correct and Logic is wrong if looking at beat in the traditional way. Logic and most other DAWs will always assume the quarter note gets the beat no matter what the time signature is so it ...

I love with Ableton Live as a composition tool (session views). But I can only use Logic Pro X for studio mixes. What can I do?
