Logic Pro 9 Does Logic detect time signature (score)

I suppose I have an ancillary - at least a parallel - question coming at Logic 9 from a score perspective.

[ADMIN EDIT: moved to new thread]

If I start playing a MIDI instrument in what is clearly 3/4 time in the key of D Major, does the Score Editor know to assign that time and key signature to the track in question?

If not, is it best for me to put them in for it?

TIA!

Do you mean can Logic "detect" a time signature from your playing?

You need to enter the time signature, Logic can't "know" what is 3/4 time. Even if it had some kind of time signature detection ability, it wouldn't know if what you were playing was actual 3/4 or a cross rhythm or hemiola

and so could use some other time signature.

(NB I'll move this to a new thread as it's a different question)

Essentially, Yes - detect it.

Thanks. Understood. Really helpful.

What about key signatures?

Thanks. Yes; sorry
