If you don't do that does the translation get omitted or is the fuzzy
one accepted as good enough?

duration of notes (time signature is irrelevant) plus tempo, Denemo does
not calculate this until MIDI is required. At this point the timings in
seconds from the start are computed and attached to notes.

ok - I see it, all that stuff is quite buggy - just now I got the
suddenly emptied queue of audio, a very horrid effect. I got it twice in
a row, (when hitting Play) and then it got itself righted. I haven't
heard that in a long time, I don't know if it is something people put up
