I'm just a user like you so I don't decide what gets fixed.

In 4/4 time the quarter note gets the beat, and if a quarter = 60 ticks then the beats are:
<100 R 60 60 60 60>
In 7/8 time it is the eighth note that gets the beat, so if a quarter = 60 ticks then the beats should be written like this:
<100 R 30 30 30 30 30 30 30>
And since there are the equivalent of 3.5 quarter notes per bar in 7/8, a single measure should add up to 210 ticks (rather than 240 for straight 4/4 time). But that is not what is happening; I tried note lengths of 20 (nope) and 240/7=34.2857 thinking that perhaps every measure = 240 ticks, but no joy. Pete or Tim, how would you propose that I write a pattern in 7/8 for Noatikl?
Yes I can work around this by always using x/4 time and doubling the tempo for a x/8 feel, but it would not be true to the intended time signature. And since I am using Noatikl AU in Logic, I would have to pull the same stunt in order for Noatikl to match up with the measure structure and other software instruments. And there could be problems using the MIDI output for other uses.
