Should be simple.  I have a MOX6 and want to start a new song in the sequencer with 3/4 time.  The setup allows changing the tempo, but not the meter.  The owners manual and the reference manual didn’t help.  Either didn’t have it, or I couldn’t find it.

See (6) Meter on page 76 of the Reference Manual.

PDF versions of the Owner’s and Reference Manuals are searchable, typically in most readers by using “Find”. Doing so for “meter” or “time signature” turned up the above reference.

I saw that page, and saw the reference to meter.  If the page is telling me how to change the meter I don’t understand where and how it is telling me.  It tells me what it is, and the possible settings.  If somehow the page is telling me how to edit this setting I would be extremely appreciative if someone would teach me how to see this in there.

In the main song screen [Play], just hit the right arrow twice and then use the data dial to set your time signature. One more right arrow and you’re on tempo.

[Edit] Ooops, just saw this is posted in MOX, my answer works on MOXF.
Should be the same one would hope.

Using the cursor keys, highlight the Parameter, then change the setting - just as you would edit anything else.

Now I feel dumber than ever.  It is even easier than I thought it should be.  I went into record first, and couldn’t set the meter from there.  Just the first Song screen!  Thanks a million!!!

Hidden in plain sight. ;-)
Glad it was there also on the MOX.
