Chapter 16. Recording MIDI > Working with MIDI Files

Working with MIDI Files

At some time, you may need to work with another sequencer—perhaps to transfer a part written in a different program or on a keyboard workstation into Pro Tools. Or, you might need to move Pro Tools MIDI tracks into a live situation, or export MIDI from a Pro Tools session into another program.

To do this, you need to use a Standard MIDI File (SMF). There are two kinds of SMFs: Type 0 and Type 1. Type 0 SMFs include an entire project’s MIDI tracks in a single file. These files are generally “exploded” to individual tracks when they’re imported to another application. Type 1 SMFs save a project’s individual MIDI tracks as discrete files.
