Punching In and Out with MIDI - Pro Tools 9

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: When you've recorded a MIDI track already, you can go back and replace a section of it that you want to correct. This lets you fix just a few notes or chords instead of having to re-record the whole MIDI region.? 1. First go to the MIDI track that you want to fix. Click and drag to highlight over the section of notes that you want to replace.? 2. Open the transport window by holding Apple+1 or going to Window--Transport.? 3. On the transport, make sure that the Merge button, is not highlighted. The Merge button has an icon of one arrow merging onto another one. When it is unhighlighted, the new MIDI recording will replace what's currently on the track.? 4. Now find the red circle button on the transport and right-click on it. Select QuickPunch from the options. This will allow you to replace just the highlighted section of the region.? 5. Next, highlight Pre-roll on the transport if you want a lead-in on the track before you start recording the new section. The number next to it determines how many bars of the track will play before you reach the section to record over. Click and drag the mouse down or up to set the number of bars.? You can set the Post-roll if you want to listen to the music that follows the highlighted section.? 6. Record enable your track. Then click Record and?Play to start the song.? When you reach the highlighted section, play the notes that you want to insert. Pro Tools will record the new notes in that part of the song.? When you're done, it will be a single track even though you had separate recording sessions. Read more by visiting our page at:
