This featured was listed as being added with the update to version 1.4, but I cannot find how to turn it off.  I have looked all through the app, and the separate Settings app, but I haven't been able to find the option anywhere or any updated documentation that describes where the option is.  Does anyone know where it is; maybe I am overlooking something obvious.  Thanks.

    I have tried everything I can think of, restarting my iPad, editing existing tracks, creating new songs, multi tapping, you name it...


    I don't think the feature is there, in spite of what the update says.


    ****, this is the feature I've been waiting for!

    This is the label that will be displayed in the TImeline once you are zoomed in all the way to indicate the new snap status. BTW affects also the manually moving of the Playhead.

    This is the article on Apple's website that explains the details



    To turn off "Snap to Grid," pinch-zoom to the maximum level in Tracks view or when editing notes in regions. Pinch-zoom again and "Snap to Grid off" will appear on top of the Tracks area.To turn "Snap to Grid" back on, pinch-zoom out.

    Hope that helps
