EDIT AUDIO AND MIDI PERFORMANCES
Edit your way
When it comes to manipulating tracks in Pro Tools, there’s no right or wrong way. Shape, fix, chop, cut, and tweak audio and MIDI the way you want in a creative sandbox that gives you limitless flexibility and freedom to play.
Fine-tune MIDI performances
Quantize notes. Adjust note durations. Transpose recordings. Add dynamics by varying note velocities. Rearrange parts with Folder Tracks. And add more humanistic soul using MIDI Real-Time Properties.
Tweak audio timing and pitch
Need to fix timing issues, have a recording sit “in the pocket,” or beat-match audio? Maybe correct bad notes, transpose keys, or change notes completely. Do it all with Elastic Audio, which makes music editing super easy.
Turn audio to MIDI and vice-versa
Drag an audio sample to a MIDI track or convert an audio track to MIDI, and you can change the instrument, switch out samples, and edit notes. Or drag a MIDI clip to an audio track for more creative editing possibilities.
