Tuxguitar can and that's free.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.

These guys are right. But it's not the most difficult thing to figure out.

By the way, you need a sixteenth note and a quarter note.

Is that a double dotted quarter note? Seriously, I'm just trying to make sure. I've got a rhythm quiz in music theory and I'm brushing up.

no a double dotted quarter is a quarter, eighth and sixteenth

Yh that's the point, it'll teach you what it should be by you using trial and error; then you'll know and the program won't have to tell you

i don't know if im doing the right thing "I'm trying to use the 16th note "rest" and quarter note "rest" as fillers" because i find it right when I listen to the sound but the music bar goes on red that's why I'm looking for the right note! or am I messing it up

Go to tools and it has the option to "complete/reduce a bar with rests". The value of the rests it puts in will be the note duration you need.

btw you need a quarter 8th and 16th to fill out a 4/4 bar so a double dotted quarter note would do it

yeah your right trial and error that's what I'm doing! but it is only a work around not a solution if I will always do that it takes too much of my time unlike if i know how to calculate it, it will be more easier?

You might like to learn to do it yourself. It gets much easier with practice.

Think in terms of the shortest note (sixteenths in your example). Convert the other note times to the same. Three eighth notes = six sixteenth notes.

So you have 3/16 + 6/16 = 9/16 in your bar.

That leaves you with 7/16 to fill in at the end. You could put seven sixteenth rest signs in. The bar won't go red but it will look a bit odd.

Or you could say 7/16 = 4/16 (a quarter note) + 2/16 (an eighth) + 1/16 (a sixteenth) and put rests for those instead.

It's basic math you learn in school.


Unless you go poly-poly-rhytmic, then it requires more effort, but still relatively easy.
