Quintuplets

Any math whizzes in here that can work out how we could do quintuplets? Or is it not possible with the boxes we have? (Triplets and divisible by two guys) any help or ideas preeshiated

i always just position them

i always just position them manually with quantize off. you can go down to 64th note zoom to position them more accurately, though that takes a little math to be useful

First off, I'm no math whiz,

First off, I'm no math whiz, but what nitro 27 said is probably the only way possible, but you're never gonna get a high degree of precision. For example, with 64th notes that's 16 divisions per beat. According to my calculator, 16รท5=3.2, so each note has to be 3.2 64th notes apart.

Only other option I can think of is to program them in a more advanced DAW, export as MIDI and import the MIDI file to Caustic but even then I'm not sure if it would work or if Caustic would automatically quantize them.

Stoons you absolute math whiz

Stoons you absolute math whiz you! I couldn't even work out what sum I needed, but its the boxes divided by 5, ... yeah? So if I wanted the qunits to last for a bar I jus do the same sum 16 / 5 but use 16th notes instead. Am havin a bit of trouble countin 3.2 notes from the second note, but al work something out, thanks dudes!

Got it! Do the first two,

Got it! Do the first two, copy em, delete em, paste em by where the second one was, drag em over, an I jus kept doin that over an over and it seems to work perfect! Thank you so much lads!
