Chapter 5. Recording MIDI > Recording a Single MIDI Track

Recording a Single MIDI Track

The track is now ready for recording. A few more clicks and you will be underway.

To record a MIDI track

1.
In the track list or inspector, click the Record Enable button for each track you want to record (Figure 5.11).

Figure 5.11. Record-enabling a MIDI track; note that you can also change the MIDI output settings here, in the track list.


Usually, it's best to give a track a name before recording, so you can more easily monitor MIDI tracks and events as your project progresses.

2.
In the track list, double-click the name of the track and then type a new name (Figure 5.12).

Figure 5.12. Renaming a track; recorded MIDI parts will automatically have this name.


3.
Move the cursor to a location before where you want to start recording.

4.
To start recording MIDI data, click the Record button on the Transport bar (Figure 5.13).

The track in the track list will turn red to indicate that it's recording, and MIDI notes will appear as they're recorded in the Event display.

5.
When you finish recording, click the Stop button on the Transport bar.
