    How do I synchronize 2 midi tracks ?
    1 midi track is a drum track. And the other midi track is for arguments' sake a bass arpreggio from a VST synth ( Lennar Digital Sylenth actually).

    I'd like to get these 2 files to play in time together.... I'm not worried about the tempo/signature at this moment.
    Any suggestions, your help will be greatly appreciated.

    Are the tracks playing to the same tempo already? IF so, all you need
    to do is slide one track until it matches up with the other track and
    hit play.

    If you need to change the tempo, you'll have to find someone that does
    that sort of thing or check your manual.

    If they are not playing to the same tempo, you need to synchronize both
    parts to the bars & beats grid of Cubase. You can do that by counting
    the number of bars the drum plays, then aligning the MIDI event so that
    the first beat of the first bar falls on 1:01:01:000. Now use warp mode
    in the MIDI editor to align the end of the last grid bar to the end of
    the last played note. If you've counted right, all the beats will fall
    more or less on the grid lines, or can be quantized to do so.
    Now do the same with the bass event. After this, drums and bass will be
    playing in sync. In the tempo editor, adjust the tempo as needed.

    If this doesn't work for you, send me the project and I'll see what I
    can do.

    If the arpeggio is being generated from WITHIN the VST, you need to
    make sure that that arpeggiator can be synched to the master MIDI
    clock in Cubase. Usually they do.
