How to create notes smaller than 16ths

Hey all,

I'm working on a drum crescendo and have hit a problem.  I've found it straightforward enough to double the speed by halving the 1/8th notes' length into 1/16th notes (and also doubling up on the number of notes).  I want to double the speed again -- having a very fast flurry of 32nd notes.  This is where I've hit a wall:

In Clip View's "MIDI Note Editor" I can't seem to make notes go smaller than 1/16th -- the left bracket and right bracket aren't narrowing any further.  I'm encountering the same challenge in Clip View's "Sample Editor" if I try to work with a sample sound instead of a MIDI note.

I've also tried changing the tempo signature from 4/4 to 8/4 but I still can't create notes smaller than 1/16ths.

Ideas?  Workarounds?

    Easy Answer:  You are just watching at a steady grid size. If you right click inside the Piano Roll window, you will find several options there regarding the Grid size. If you choose the note lenght, you will probably will choose whats convenient for you. But if you dont find what you are looking for, you should take a look to narrower sizes.

    Once you have variable grid size, you have to change the zoom in the Piano Roll in order to get other notes lenght sizes.

    Hope it works fine for you,
