    Midi Files in Pro Tools
    Hi, new here. I'm thinking of getting Pro Tools. I 've been checking out video resourses for learning before I dive in. Pro Tools seems great. I've been using Sonar for a few years. I record only audio and work with midi for my background tracks. Can pro Tools import whole midi files and distribute each instrument on its own track, automatically like Sonar? Thanks

    ha??? of course!! its a pro studio standard. it has a fantastic bussing system, though it can import 'whole midi files'.., Imo guessing you mean each track onto a separate track.., i should imagine.., i only use pro-tools for studio and post sound work.., music i do in cu-base or reason or sonar or anything that is purposefully built for music.., Pro-tools in my opinion has only 60% midi functionality compared to logic or cu-base.., you want to make music.. you may as well use what you have because changing to protools wont make you better.., it might get you a job.., but it will not help your music.., as it has less functionality built into it.., its a studio app rather than a music one.., meaning the bussing system is great for mixing and also outputting and inputting to hardware.., mixers, midi tone generators, amps, mikes, .., its the Protools simplicity that makes it magic.

    Protools 8 has a lot of new MIDI additions. They all look great. I have been using MIDI in protools for creating songs and jinlges for a while now and it is much better then it use to be. Check it out. Cush
