How to use a template but to import a new tempotrack?

I have saved a template I use for preproduction. It consists the number of tracks I use, their setup, etc. I usually load my tempo tracks from a MIDI file. So when I start a new project using my template I get the old tempo track. However, when I import the new MIDI file this tempo track does not overwrite the existing tempo track.

So it seems to me I can only get a new tempo track by starting a new project. However, then I cannot use my template.

Is there any solution here?

The solution is to set up the MIDI import options correctly in preferences. Something with “ignore Mastertrack”

I both turned it on and off, and I still do not get the new tempo track from the MIDI file when I import into a template.

You need to disable that option before importing the file.
