The song I'm currently working on is throwing up this error about the first note in the second harmony being misaligned, saying that the correct location is near the track's end.


I've tried redoing the note, the lyric, and the phrase marker, but none of them helped with the issue. I'm starting to run out of ideas at this point. Is there something that I missed on here?

That usually happens with overlapping notes, however your project has structural issues regardless of that.


- Your phrase markers are way too long. Aim for 2 measures phrase markers, don't go over 3, otherwise your lyrics won't display

- Your notes are way too long. I haven't listened to the audio obviously but there's no way every single note in the song is separated from the following by 2 1/64th

- Phrase markers are different from H1 and H2 when there is no need to

- You have OD on H2 and H3 which is not allowed. You can also remove it from H1

- OD must be identical between H1 and Vocals but you have different phrases covered by OD
