After a couple of years as a casual user on and off.
I have a chord entry question:
How do I enter a chord phrase like this:
E dotted quarter, Eb eighth, C quarter Bb quarter. ?
Is this at all possible ? I hope so.
Thanks to everyone who reads this and my appreciation to anyone who can answer my question.

Hi uncle808us, that's not entirely possible but you can get close. In the third beat of that bar, you can enter the chord as a Push (by starting the chord with a ^ for a 1/8 note or ^^ for a 1/16) - so you can enter "E, ,^Eb,Bb" but it won't have the C on the third beat.

There is a workaround to do that.....

You double the BPM and play all instruments in half tempo - one bar in normal BPM equals 2 bars in double BPM - in that way you suddenly have eights to play with.

It is not a pretty way to do it, but it works, though some Real Tracks tends to be rendered slightly odd ;-)

Yeah, I sometimes do the same thing in iReal Pro for a tune that has different chords on successive 1/8th-note runs … not pretty, but it sounds okay, which is what matters.
