Default Converting midi files to audio files

I searched the Answerbase but could not find a solution to a problem I am having
This is obviously a beginners question.
I am importing 5 midi file tracks into PTLE/001 - Mac G4.
I am setting up an auxilary track.
Of course, If I bounce the file no audio can be heard.
As a workaround I am plugging my stereo monitor outs into Channels 1 & 2 and recording.
But I know that is not how this is supposed to work.
I am sure I probably need to bus the midi tracks to audio tracks.
I am able to send Reason as a slave with Rewire, but I am dealig with 5 seperate midi tracks and that more complicated.
Could some one give me a step-by-step instruction on how to convert my midi tracks to analog so I can bounce.
those files along with the analog tracks I am recording on guitar and piano?

Default Re: Converting midi files to audio files

What you need to do is use the "bus" to route and record the audio to a new audio track. Let's take a simple example:

Assume you have 1 midi track and 1 Aux track so you can hear the midi.

1. Create a new audio track (either mono or stereo).
2. In the Aux track create a bus as a "send". (Alternatively, you could set the output to a bus, I believe.)
3. In the Audio track, set your input to the bus you just created.
4. Listen to the new track and adjust volume, plug ins, etc.
5. When you are happy with it, press the "record" button on the audio track to make it ready, then record the Aux output to the audio track.
6. Mute the Aux output so that all you can hear is the new audio track.

That should do it. Sorry if this is a bit inexact, I'm not in front of my music computer right now...

Hope this helps!
