Acid Pro  Inserting TracksNotes:

  • When you drag a media file from the Explorer or Media Manager window to an area of the timeline that does not contain a track, a new track will be created and a new event is added to the new track where you drop the media.

  • Drag a file from the Windows Explorer, Explorer Window, or Media Manager window to an existing track in the timeline to add a clip to the track and add an event where you drop the clip. The new clip is set as the active clip for creating events with the Draw Acid Pro b draw Inserting Tracks or Paint Acid Pro b paint Inserting Tracks tool.

  • When you add a MIDI track, its output is automatically assigned to the next available channel (channel 10 is skipped since some devices reserve channel 10 for drums). For more information about routing MIDI tracks to soft synths or MIDI devices, click here.

  • MIDI tracks can use .mid, .smf, and .rmi files.
