In this video, I am going to explain some of the MIDI recording features that can…make your MIDI life easier.…The first one is Wait for Note, and that's located down here in the…Transport window, right here.…If you click that button, make it blue, that means it's on.…When you enabled the Wait for Note button, Pro Tools won't begin to record until…it receives MIDI data, like when you press a key on your MIDI controller.…Use this function if you want the first MIDI event you play to be recorded at…precisely where the playback cursor is currently located.…
So let me record, and I will show you an example.…First I am going to record enable this track.…(Music playing.)…The very first note that I played is exactly at the beginning of this bar,…where the cursor was placed, and Pro Tools waited for me until I pressed that first note.…
If you want to use pre-roll when recording MIDI with Wait for Note enabled, the…pre-roll will engage after the first MIDI event is received,…then enter record mode after the pre-roll time passes, which is a pretty handy feature.…
