Sure -

Open a song. Double-click a bar that has notes in it. Time sig dialog 
comes up.

Change the existing time sig from 4/4 (e.g.) to 8/8.

The original notes stay in "their original position" rather than into 
the correct beats in time. It would be much preferable if increasing 
resolution would keep the original beat specified intact.

the level / attenuation might be it, then.  I will look for specific 
examples of inputs and how they appear different (IMO) in the output.

Again, thanks for Doggiebox -
