      it would be nice to have more options, there isn’t the 5/8 time signature I need

      Hi Al – thanks for your comment. If you click the bell the first beat sound will become the same as the other beats. This means all you need to do is pick the tempo you want and it will work for any time signature. The first beat sound (bell symbol) currently supports time signatures: 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 6/8, 9/8 and 12/8.
