In addition to editing MIDI notes in Pro Tools, the Score Editor enables you to export the score to Sibelius, an advanced notation software program, for further tweaking. You can also print out the score directly from Pro Tools. Before printing or exporting, you might want to rename the tracks, and to do that it's very simple. You can just go up to the name of the track and double-click. You also may want to alter the tracks that are shown on the score. Right now, we've got all of the tracks shown, but maybe we just want to print out the piano part.
So all we need to do is click these circles to either include or not include them in the score. If you'd like to do some fine-tuning or tweaking to the score, or individual parts, you may want to use Sibelius notation program to do this. You can export this file directly to Sibelius to utilize the more advanced notation function in the program, if you go to File > Export > Sibelius. And here you can save it as something and then import it into Sibelius.
For an even more direct route, if you want to send this file directly to Sibelius that's open on your computer right now, you can go to File > Send to Sibelius. Now, we don't have Sibelius on this computer, so it won't let us do it, but if you did, you could go up to it right here. Finally, if we want to print out the score directly from Pro Tools, we can choose File > Print Score. Doing this will print exactly what appears on the screen in the Score Editor window--nothing more or nothing less.
Now you know how to notate MIDI performances and set up a score in Pro Tools, and you can even export and print that score directly from Pro Tools.
