MIDI Track Mix Window - Pro Tools 9

Learn guitar chords for FREE through our new game Chord Master: The MIDI track is the most limited track type in Pro Tools 9. While it contains many basic controls, it's missing several other useful features. To tell a MIDI track apart from another track, look at the?channel strip of a track in the mix window. Near the bottom of the strip, above the Track Name box, you'll see the Track Type icon. A MIDI track is represented by a five-pronged circle?icon, which mimics the end of a MIDI cable. For more information on Track Type icons, review the Track Type Mix Window lesson. A MIDI track channel strip contains the basics, such as Solo, Mute, Volume Fader, Track Record Enable,?Automation Mode, Groups, a Pan Knob,?the Track Name box and the Comments box. However, MIDI does not allow Inserts or Sends. This is because it's not audio; rather, MIDI is made by software instruments. It's either taking samples or creating its own from a synthesizer. To manipulate MIDI, you must do so inside a synthesizer. There is also only one Input option you can choose: All. The only Output you can choose is None, because it automatically goes out to your session. Read more by visiting our page at:
