Importing tempo tracks

You can import tempo tracks into individual flows and new flows in existing projects; for example, if you are writing music for a film and changes to the footage require tempo and time signature changes. This does not overwrite the notes and notations in the flow.


  1. Choose File > Import > Tempo Track to open the File Explorer/macOS Finder.
  2. Locate and select the MIDI file whose tempo track you want to import.
  3. Click Open to open the Import Tempo Track dialog.
  4. In the Import into flow list, select the flow into which you want to import the tempo track.
  5. In the Import and replace section, activate the checkbox for each tempo track aspect you want to include.
  6. Optional: If you activated the checkbox for Markers as, choose one of the following options:
    • Markers

    • System-attached Text

  7. Optional: If you chose System Text for Markers as, activate/deactivate Show border around system-attached text markers.
  8. Click OK to import the tempo track and close the dialog.


The tempo track is imported into the selected flow. If you selected New Flow in the Import into flow list, a new flow is added to the project. All selected aspects are applied to the existing music or the new flow, and notes and tempo marks are adjusted as required.
