Increase Or Decrease Time Between Audio And Midi

From time to time you may get a playback where it sounds like the audio is starting either a bit before or after your midi file. Well you can add or take away time to each of the midi tracks but thats a lot of work and depending on how many midi tracks there are, this could take a while to do. Well, there is an easier way to do this. Why not just add or decrease the time on one track? If you can't raise the bridge, lower the water. This is in effect exactly what we will be doing. In most all cases we are only talking a few milliseconds of time that the audio may be off and this is not much. For all that don't know what a millisecond is, 1 millisecond is = to .001 seconds. 1000 milliseconds = 1 second and just to keep our math 101 straight .001 seconds x 1000 = 1 second. Power Tracks allows you to offset the audio by + or - 1.2 seconds or 1200 milliseconds. Lets get going on this and it's very simple to do.
