Syncing a midi track to protools grid

    I have a very technically proficient metal band coming to the studio soon (think the Faceless meets opeth), anyway I just switched from Audition to Protools recently and this band has written all their music into Guitar Pro and can export their songs as midi information from the program, therein lies the question:

    Is there a way to get Pro Tools to read that midi information and line up the grid with the meter/tempo changes for click purposes, that way I can have the drummer record part by part or stop after certain sections, just for easy comping purposes.

    Thanks in advance

    When you go to import the midi file, PT will ask if you want to also import the tempo map, which will include the tempo, and any tempo changes. You can then use either a clik if provided from the midifile. Or have the PT clik follow the tempo track.
