You can use the Key column in the Clip Pool to set the key of a MIDI clip. A clip’s key affects playback and how MIDI notes are drawn in events.
When you create a new MIDI clip via recording or inline MIDI editing, the key is set to None.
When you open a MIDI file, ACID will set the clip’s key based on the MIDI file. If a MIDI file has multiple key signatures, only the first is used.
When you open a MIDI file as a project, the ACID project key is updated to match the MIDI file. Each clip (except drum clips) will have its key set accordingly.
When a clip’s key is set, the project key and key change markers are applied to MIDI clips, and the MIDI event data will display notes as WYSIWYH (what you see is what you hear).
When a clip’s key is set to None, the project key and key change markers are not applied to MIDI clips.
To edit a MIDI clip’s key, right-click a clip on the Clip Pool tab, choose Key from the shortcut menu, and then choose a key from the submenu.
To change a MIDI clip’s time signature, right-click a clip on the Clip Pool tab, choose Time Signature from the shortcut menu, and then choose a time signature from the submenu.
The time signature you choose will be used to display the grid on the OPT piano roll editor and to display M.B.T (measure.beat.tick) values on the OPT list editor.
