Midi + ProTools - 10 simple steps to record from the Midi Controller
- Open ProTools
- Create 3 tracks - one midi track and 2 stereo Audio tracks.
- Set the inputs and the outputs to the following:
- Midi1: input: MK449CUSB (Midi Controller)
- Choose a Reason Sound Bank - We'll get back to this
- Audio1: input: Mic/Line 1-2
- Audio2: input: Bus 1-2
This should look like this:
- Now go to Operations -> Input Only Monitor
- Go to Windows -> Show Mix to bring up the input/output screen for every track. In Audio 1, click the top set of arrows to open the ->plug-ins. Select Multi-channel plug-in -> Instrument -> Reason. Rewire will open, and this will automatically launch Reason.
- In Reason, make a new File.
- Open up any sampler or synthesizer by going up to the "Create" Menu. For this example, we'll use NN19 digital sampler.
- Go to Browse Patch in the sampler, and choose a bank of your choice.
- Go back to proTools. The outputs for the midi track should now have changed. Choose NN19 1-8.
- Now test it by playing some Mozart! You should be able to hear sound coming through. To record, record enable the track, and press the ->'record' and then the 'play' button.
