    I totally agree - both as a songwriter and a teacher, I find the restriction to 3/4 and 4/4 the major deal breaker for me. If more time signatures were available, I'd be happy to enroll on tto premier price, but as it stands I'll keep the free membership

    This support article shows where you can change time signature.

    Hope this helps :)

    One workaround I've used with my students is to use 4/4 time but change the grid size to "1/8 triplet". In this way the first half of the bar "behaves" like a 6/8 measure and the second half of the 4/4 bar is another 6/8 measure. Of course, this doesn't help with some of the included loops in Soundtrap that are labeled as 6/8, which spreads 4 measures of 6/8 over 3 measures of 4/4 (e.g., "Atlantis - Are We Beat (full) 6/8"). But if the students are harmonizing their melodic work using MIDI instruments, the above "1/8 triplet" works well and quantizing, etc. all works as it should.
