Importing tempo tracks

You can import tempo tracks into individual 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. In the File Explorer/macOS Finder, 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 Text

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


The tempo track is imported into the selected flow. All selected aspects are applied to the existing music, and notes and tempo marks are adjusted as required.
