Okay, I figured out partly what I was doing wrong. I was pressing the sustain pedal during the metronome click off, which I guess it wasn't recording the midi info. However, when I pressed down on the sustain pedal right as it began recording it also recorded the sustain -- makes sense. But when I copy the midi selection and past it into another measure it duplicates the part without the sustain midi info. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks in advance!
