CUBASE SX3: Does anyone know a way to...

lock the MIDI to the grid in a fashion so that when i change the tempo of the song everything doesn't go haywire, and fall out of sync with the new tempo. I cannot find a method when i google this subject, all the methods are for locking live drums to a single tempo.

It seems like it should be so easy to do. In alot of other programs you can adjust the tempo of a track on the fly, and the midi will follow suit.

This seems to be something Cubase isnt quite great at.

I'm using Cubase SX3.

Try a google search for musical/linear timebase. Cubase puts midi tracks in linear mode by default.

You have more learning to do, then. Cubase has always done this, since Atari days.

You can change the default behaviour of tracks by going to file/preferences/editing and selecting "musical" in the "default track time type" dropdown.

You will also see a little icon like a clock in the inspector for the track. Click on this and it will change to a crotchet, indicating that the track is in musical mode.

Rather than google, you might try the Cubase forums at Cubase.net ::: Index for a mine of info by some very experienced Cubase users. The forum even has a very useful search facility.

The Cubase help files works pretty well also.
