Once you've added and configured all of your MIDI devices in the Audio MIDI…Setup, there are a few things to take care of in Pro Tools, to make using MIDI easy.…First, let's go to Setup > MIDI > Input Devices.…You'll see the MIDI Input Enable window, where all of your devices should be checked off.…If they're not, check them.…These are the devices that actually input MIDI data into Pro Tools.…You won't see any devices on this list that are just sound modules and that…don't actually create MIDI data.…
Your window will probably look different than mine here, with different devices,…but just make sure that they're all checked off. Then click OK.…Next, go to the Options menu and make sure that the MIDI Thru is checked off.…This allows you to monitor MIDI tracks while recording them.…When using MIDI Thru, disable local control on your MIDI devices; otherwise they…may receive the same MIDI data twice, creating stuck notes or a phase-like…effect where two notes are almost playing in sync.…You don't want that.…
