    Is there a way to export/import a MIDI file from GB to Pro-tools? I am hoping to take MIDI drum files from GB and find a way to get them into PT, but PT won't recognize them when I try to import. Is there a way around this? Maybe another program that acts as some kind of translator?
    The reason for doing this is so I can work on drum programs in 1 location that does not have PT, and then take those files to another locatio that has both GB and PT.

    Any help wouldd be greatly appreciated.

    I'm pretty sure GB won't export midi information in any form, certainly not as midi files.

    Currently GB is a stand alone system that will only import audio and midi info.

    There may be some clever bloke who can extract the midi info from the system, but it's not a feature.

    You should do your programming in something else, Reason maybe, that'll export midi and ReWire audio too.
