How to set up MIDI/Instrument Tracks

Setting up a MIDI Track is fairly straightforward in Pro Tools. Using the Tracks menu, navigate to ‘New’. From here select the type of Track required, the channel numbers and how many you’d like to set up. When done, press ‘Create’. Your tracks will then be created.

Pro Tools allows you to colour code, rename and edit tracks as required. Should you need to duplicate, this is also a feature.


  • Set Up your Pro Tools Session.
  • Set Up an Instrument Track with VST Instrument
  • Input a Basic Drum Beat using the MIDI Editor into your Session.
