Defining the Default Track Time Base

You can specify the default track time type for new tracks (audio, group/FX, MIDI, and marker tracks).


  1. In the Preferences dialog, select Editing.
  2. Open the Default Track Time Type pop-up menu and select a default track time type.


If you selected Follow Transport Main Display, the primary time format setting on the Transport panel is used. When this is set to Bars+Beats, tracks with musical time base are added. When this is set to any of the other options (Seconds, Timecode, Samples, etc.), all new tracks use linear time base.
