MIDI Recording

You can record MIDI using any of the basic recording methods.

When you finish recording, a part that contains MIDI events is created in the Project window.


If you perform a live recording on a VST instrument, you usually compensate the latency of the audio card by playing earlier. In consequence, the timestamps are recorded too early. If you activate ASIO Latency Compensation on the track list, all recorded events are moved by the current latency setting.

The following preferences affect MIDI recording:

  • Length Adjustment

  • Snap MIDI Parts to Bars

  • MIDI Record Catch Range in ms

  • ASIO Latency Compensation Active by Default

You can find them in the Preferences dialog on the MIDI and on the Record—MIDI page.
