lmms3. Timing in LMMS

Change the tempo from 140 beats per minute to 60 beats per minute. This makes it easier to see the timing relations

For the usual time signature of 4/4, 1 beat is now 1 second in duration, and 1-bar is 4-seconds in duration.

Remove the Kicker instrument from Beat + Bassline editor, and add drum sample from My Samples.

Use this pattern for the Beat + Bassline editor and Song Editor. (If the image is too small, you can click to get the original size)

In the Song Editor we can see that bars 2 and 3 and not selected. That corresponds to 8-seconds, from 4 to 12, of silence.

Within the Beat + Bassline editor we can see that samples exist at 0-second, 1-second and 3-second. It should be noted that four position separation in this editor correspond to 1 second time-difference, for a 60 beats per minute tempo.
