Join David Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing MIDI, part of Pro Tools 10 Essential Training.
Importing MIDI files into a Pro Tools session is pretty straightforward, much…like importing audio.…In this video I'm going to show you two ways to import MIDI files.…The first way,…is to go to File > Import > MIDI.…Now you can choose a MIDI file contained on any hard drive connected to…your computer.…In this case I'm going to choose Mini Grand.mid, MID represents a MIDI file,…and I'll choose Open.…The MIDI Import Options dialog opens up and you can choose where you want it…to go.…
So whether you want to put it on a new track or just right into the clips list.…You can choose the location, whether you want it to start at the session…starting point or spot, or use a specific selection, and we can import the tempo…map from the MIDI file, which I want to do, and I'm going to import the key…signature as well.…Because the cursor is at the very beginning of the session, and we've…chosen location selection, it's going to go right to the very beginning.…So you see this MIDI clip starts right at the very beginning of this session.…
